Unlike the normal cliched, I'd avoid my dead flag scenario, this story started when Iris was already at the confrontation scene. And how she handles the situation afterwards.

The plot's really nice, and it has likeable characters.

The better written version of the WN.

If you're not familiar with the webnovel version, the gist of the story is Iris' life after being appointed representative duke to her father's fief. She's using her knowledge from her past life to push for various reforms in the fief--things unthinkable in the monarchy and aristocracy setting.

Selling points:

  • Strong af female MC who doesn't kill people. Well, not directly....
  • Reasonably not omniscient and omnipotent MC. Some would argue that she knows too much about some things, but I think those can be sort-of handwaved... I do know some rather random things too....
  • Excellent buildup to main conflict. The arcs are all overarching into the climax, and it gets really intense later.
  • You get chapters dedicated to the view of other characters, even, dare I say it, cannon fodders. It gives depth to a heck lot of side characters.
  • You have chronic Second ML Syndrome (just like me) ??? This will cure you. At least during reading this novel. Lol.
Not-selling points:

  • THE f*ckING STUPID SECOND PRINCE. *cough* I mentioned that some chapters are dedicated to cannon fodders and side characters. Well, 2nd prince must be neither cannon fodder nor side character... because he don't got any. Which is also weird as heck, because he was Iris' fiance. His character is the most flat, unexplored template of lovestruck idiot. He's so cannon fodder even his 2nd fiancee colluded with his mom instead of him.
  • First Prince too f*cking perfect. I mean he's basically MC but male, with strong martial arts so he can protect her... *cough cough* I'm not complaining though
