Citadel of Desire

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

“When you fall from a high place, there is no one to catch, let alone pick you up.”

Rei understood this best when her family fell from glory straight into the gutter. She understood her value better, when she was chased out of her own house- she was nothing. At the moment she was about to crumble, she looked at her older brother standing by her.

She was not alone. Not all was lost…

In the hopes of rekindling an old connection and start afresh, the path the siblings took led them to a quiet countryside.

A resplendent castle covered in beautiful red roses… so majestic… so sinister…

It also looked like… a lonely abode shrouded in desolation?

And there, she met someone; it seems he was…

… a beast.

im so tired of these smut novels always portraying women with ZERO agency and as preys for the ml. Rei started as this sensitive and intuitive girl who can sense that something is not right w the place and knows heish's business idea is s*upid but too scared and timid to point that out to him. Now, I cant tell what she's thinking anymore or is she even thinking at all. Ppl have come to warn her (tho vaguely but the message is already so obvious) and those warnings... more>> seems not to be reaching her despite her initial unsettledness with the place and how sensitive she is.

also her character is written so badly: she's devastatingly one-dimensional, I can feel zero agency from her (tho in the early chapters, she appeared w sense), and her actions/thoughts don't make sense. Yea she's in a bleak situation: powerless (she's broke and has no home), surrounded by shitty ppl and ppl w power are preying on her; it makes sense that she doesnt have a lot of options. But she should atleast have her agency to think right? However, the only thoughts she have is: clodan, horny, clodan and then nothingness. I knowwww her character is supposed to be naive and unexperienced but she's also sensible and intuitive (characteristics that became absent later on in the chapters) Her attraction to clodan is so baseless and instantaneous and in-ur-face, I just dont care for it.

And ofc, clodan, he's a creepy r*pey sick motherf*cker who is prob a thousand years old and rei is so attracted to him like gurl you've seen him like thrice and now ur panting cos he's rubbing his hard-on on u??? Meh worms <<less

Love this story. I am pretty sure its a take off of Beauty and the Beast. There is no way you won't feel sorry for how pathetic the FL life has been.
Loved to get a hubby like the ML!!!

this story was forced to be dropped by the Korean publisher. If anyone knows the translators patron site please post I really want to read the rest of the story.

To be honest, I love how beastly and direct the ML was towards the fl. It's not perfect, but I enjoyed the read until this chapter. I wanna see both Characters develop.

The FL is kinda depressed, due to the unfair treatment she always had by her family that only adored her brother ... more>>
Spoiler

Don't be fooled by the description, her brother is a spoilt little bit*h that always mistreated and humiliated the weak fl. He is so used on getting everything served in a silver plater that he acts as if he's 'royalty' even after losing everything

[collapse]

The ML is literally beastly. He is thirsting over the FL and it's obvious. There's no r*pe, he definitely gets her consent which is something I really appreciate. Even if for now he is only after her pants, he works for it, helps her out e.t.c
Spoiler

The FL was illiterate and he teached her how to read and write

[collapse]
. He immediately stopped his sexual approach when he was told to by the fl, and even read her books. They had several conversations about favorite books and other stuff. He likes fairytale romance books, he has a collection of them, something which I find really cute. Don't get me wrong, he's not perfect, he's kinda rude and too direct (probably too violent when he punishes his servants) but at least he seems genuine? We'll see.

Edit: Yeah, I saw and what I saw made me f*cking disappointed. I was too fast to judge. He's a full fledged rapist and the naivety of the protagonist started frustrating me at some point.

Two stars only for the excellent translation. <<less

From chapter3 only thing I can say is the ML is A pervert and loves naughty stuff. More precisely the way he was looking at the FL was like a beast looking at his prey!

Reading first few chapters got me contemplating if its horror genre novel. Everyone's so creepy esp male lead what the hell. Thriller in a beauty & the beast referenced like smut novel.

Was also wondering if 'elloit', his grandfathers friend, is same as male lead?

OMG the ML is so thirsty for the FL xDD

[collapse]

Love it by so far, if you're into mysterious and intense (you know what I mean lol) male leads, I assure you're gonna love this from the start.

The ML is very very yandere. Like straight out of a Wattpad type of yandere (minus the physical abuse).I read some spoilers and it seems the ML is genuinely obsessed with the FL and from what I read the FL is still being gaslighted to the extreme.

So I'm just on chapter 17 and this is hot. The back story also seems to be promising and I'm expecting a character development of both the ML and FL.

Like this story the mystery around it and the fact that it is from weak to strong the ML respects the FL wishes and takes care if her and he is a honest person the FL will slowly progress her trauma of being called useless days and nights with the help of some care and love
