“I can’t sleep without you.”

Amarion Amari, a poor count maiden who wields a sword every day in the barren North.

One day, she received a proposal from the great nobleman of the Empire, Archduke Morte, who is also known as ‘Walking Death’.

“Be my wife, and I will give you everything.”

She had to accept this irresistible offer, and on their first night, the Archduke made a request of her. ​

“Stay by my side all night, but you must stay awake.”

When the Archduke went to bed after handing a sword to her, Amarion realized why this beautiful and fearsome man had to marry her, a knight.​

“You are like a miracle to me.”​

The nights went on, the more the duke fell in love with her; and Amarion gradually opened her heart to his sweetness…

The action-growing romance between the two begins now.

I'll edit in a review later, just want to point out that despite NU saying there are only 4 translated chapters, there are 30+ at the moment.

I understand it's probably annoying having to manually add chapter releases to this site but I've found a half dozen novels just today that I normally would have passed up because of low chapter count that had 30-50 chapters on the translators site.

I feel like this had a lot of potential. The MC was the best knight in her country and everyone knew it, she married the best knight in the empire aka the only person better than the MC. He married her because he has PTSD and sleepwalks with a sword and attacks people.

The problem is the writing is so lazy and doesn't make any sense considering what we know about the characters. The ML didn't even tell the MC about his condition the first night, so from her perspective her new husband tried to kill her the first night. She didn't even get mad about, which makes no sense. The MC thinks she's a mediocre swordsman for some reason, even after she easily beats the best knight in the capital. The MC is very timid and has no self esteem, and is driven to tears by some noble women. Her entire background is that she spent her entire life fighting monsters with mercenaries and other knights, why would she be so emotionally weak to a few insults? I could go on about how the characters change their personality to fit the plot for a while so I'll stop.

The ML falls in love with the MC for no reason and gets really possessive, which I'm not a fan of. The FL just thinks he's hot, no matter how he acts or what he does.

This is just another instance of a "strong" FL being written as a damsel so the ML can swoop in and solve all of her problems. Sh*t is annoying. <<less

As the title of this novel. He the ML is called Walking Death, because he super strong even in his sleep.

He requested MC who is the strongest knight in a small country to be his wife. He said he'd provided everything to her[. She accepted the deal with him because she can provide to her household the money to survive a few winter. She doesn't know what is the catch that she has to sacrifice, she think he just want a wife.



How suprising he ask her to stay up watching him sleep, only to know that he sleepwalking wielding sword to fight with anyone.I agree to why MC angry with his husband. Even she survived first night without knowing what's going on, she should know the reason he married her first. It's better prepared than unguarded.

Really good so far. The romance at the beginning it's really sweet and slow and then

you start getting subtle hints that, damn, the ML is possessive and has a lot of trauma. Things start to get more serious after they go to the Morte State (btw, in my language 'Morte' means death) but the FL-ML relationship didn't get... hmmm abusive? I mean he's very cruel but not to her, he treats her well


Basically it's a good romance but beware there are heavy topics, ptsd, war related stuff and such. The ML is very flawed but I like him nonetheless and the FL is very... I don't think naive is the word but she's very... socially awkward? at the beginning, like she's strong af physically but she'll get bullied by ppl at gatherings. She'll grow from it, worry not, anyways I like her. I like the tl quality too, it was a nice read, can't wait for more chapters <<less

Awwwwww yessssssss....


ML is a big baby and a wife simp and I'm ALL here for it!

It's so refreshing how low key but badass overpowered FL is. Thank goodness she's not the scheming or frustratingly naive FL trope.

Also, the people at Morte estate is sus...
