How to Hide the Emperor’s Child


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

“You never loved me anyway, right?”

Astelle’s long-awaited marriage life ended in a day.

She worked hard to become Kaizen’s wife since she was ten, but the only thing that was left for her was the stigma of an empress.

She was abandoned by the royalty; the man she loved, Kaizen, wanted her to leave.

“Yes. You’re right. I didn’t love you.”

Astelle lied for the last time. The man was the reason for her life, but it was also for the sake of the man who was her husband for a day.

She thought there would be no contact with him again, but-

“I think… I might be pregnant?”


Six years later, Astelle, who reunited with Kaizen, lied again.

“You… who is that child?”

“He’s my nephew.”

To protect the child.

It's bad and it's awful and it's bad.

This novel is descriptive but to an okay, yeah okay buddy degree. The characters in this novel sucks they're not compelling, likable or intriguing. The worst character would definitely be the protagonists child because well his existence everything he does is for the sake of the author to get to where they want to go and it feels forced and suffocating, the protagonist herself is hard to describe because her character is so wishy washy of course it's easy to know how she's... more>> like since I'm told how she is like of course I'll immediately understand that she's super cool and awesome when I'm told she's super cool and awesome. Kaizen, only person's name j remember is unoriginal as f*ck just as much as his name also the maid the important one was such a random character appearance with no foreshadowing like okay thanks great issue solved. The plot reeks absolutely abysmal horrid even.

This sucks don't read it <<less

OK so the first thing I like about this novel is that the FL is really intelligent and independent. Whatever she do is really reasonable and smart, she is not like any other female leads I have read who still love and will forgive the scumbag ML easily even if he really does something unimaginable and cruel towards her.

I know the plot of this novel will eventually lead them to fall in love again and so on.... But I really wish this does not happen. And the ML would let... more>> her go... She will live her peaceful life with her son somehow and be happy. Happily ever after

Anyway I love this novel and I'm still waiting for new chapters. <<less

I really like this novel, FL make sense and have a brain inside her skull.

ML : he think that he is the only one having troubles in the entire world and everyone else life is sunshine and rainbows, don't like the MC because he thought that her life is about sipping tea and dresses just because she a noble, and that you can't love the partner that your family chose for you, although they were engaged for 10 years he treated her as a street pass by. FL : work... more>> hard for 10 years to become a perfect empress, wasted her entire childhood, helped the late empror, perfect in every way, use to love the ML but her love withers after there divorce, just want to life quietly with her son <<less

So far I felt a lot of anger towards the ML similar to the anger I felt because of soviesht. Anyway, the story is really really good!! The FL is very capable and I love how meticulous she is, she's a very careful and a very strong character. She actually reminds me of Navier. I love the FL and she deserves so much more than that b*st*rd emperor.

I also want to rant (sorry lol) I really hate the emperor's character, since they were little kids, he only thinks of Astelle... more>> as a nuisance. Even when she was clearly working hard for him, not once did he look at her direction. And now just because she's not dressed prettily and luxuriously, he's suddenly interested??? That's the most s*upid thinking ever lol tbh, I want to see him beg and cry and kneel in front of her!!!! She doesn't deserve the treatment she received from him back then, whatever excuse he had, it's not a valid reason to be a shitty human towards the person who devoted almost her entire life for you. Honestly, FL would be better off with another dude.


On the side note, Theor is so precious, but unfortunately he has an a*s for a father. <<less

To those of you hoping for a strong independant woman who don't need no man, I'm sorry.

The guy who divorced the MC is the love interest.

He doesn't even have a good reason, but because hes handsome and rich, and he felt bad about it and look at those abs I guess it's fine I guess.

That was sarcasm.

If you enjoy watching a girl getting back with her abuser this novel is for you I guess.

I love the story so far. Astelle (FL) is dignified, smart and is very aware of others; she still holds herself like an Empress. Her son isn't annoying (like how some children can be in novels) & the Emperor (ML) isn't a bad guy either. If you read the novel you will see. I honestly look forward to the Emperor's clumsy interactions with her.

Someone had called the Emperor an abuser in a review and I want to say that he definitely is not.

... more>>

It was an arranged marriage, which he did not want from the start. He tried to end it before their first night & even tried to send her money afterwards, which SHE refused. He develops a cute relationship with the son and dotes on him. Astelle also doesn't take him back right away, he really has to work for it.


+ the translations are great! <<less

I love how the FL uses her brain. I love the plot, its not all about revenges for being not loved or emotional reason why the FL hides their child. I kinda hate the ML for his heartless remarks but I looked forward of this story. It makes me anticipate for more secrets and feelings to unfold..

I’m not the type to post reviews and etc. But I had to, since the rating which is 4/5 currently doesn’t do enough justice with the novel itself. I might be speaking too early since I’ve only read up until chapter 17, but this novel has a lot of potential!

the writing and translations are soo great, they were able to depict and convey the author’s imagination in another language in a not so cringey way (I sometimes cringe whenever there’s a child involve in a novel soo).

The pacing is nice,... more>> it might be too fast for some, but for me it was quite alright. Since stories like these are predictable with the amount of novels that I’ve read with the same plot.

Overall, give this a chance :))) also, if it isn’t your cup of tea, just let it be, since there are some readers out there who prefers stories like this. The characters aren’t perfect but that’s where the development will focus on. <<less

Really well written and translated. The FL is a strong and courageous character. The ML is an arse, but he seems to have his reasons. Really excited to see how it develops 😍

Definitely a 4+/5

I'm the type of person who doesn't post reviews for novels I'm not really interested in.

I can just say that the FL is really smart and admirable. She's a really good mother and wants to do everything to protect her child. She's also willing to jump in any danger for little Theor

I gave 2 points for this one

Next, I also understand why the ML did not love her at first.

... more>>

She was the daughter of the Duke who was always scheming and greedy. One would naturally think that she was just a doll who was forced into the engagement and marriage. He never thought that her feelings for him was real. He just thought she was a puppet to give birth to the next Emperor and she was used by her father as a spy to the ML, but those weren't actually true.


I also liked that the ML had a really good character development in the Novel. (To those people who hated the ML, think of him as a real life person for a second. People will have doubts, suspicions, people can change, and no one is perfect, it wasn't his fault that he never developed feelings in the PAST... that's why he's slowly trying to become a better person... AND he's not really a bad person at all.)

He was just indifferent because he didn't love the FL at first, he never wanted something bad to happen to the FL.


I also gave 2 stars for this.

Next about Theor, dear lord this child is an angel of all angels. He's smart, cute, understanding, disciplined, and just a lovable child. He's so innocent. Just reading his lines and his scenes brightens my day.

Love how our FL doesn’t fall into love back with the ML. It’s just him chasing her (though he’s not even knowing why his eyes follow her back figure.

Characters are fleshed out and I love the translation!!

So far I really like this novel. Some aspects of the plot may seem generic but the twists are really uncommon and different from the rising trends nowadays. I must say, her move on making her child be her dead brother's son instead of her own was a wise move. MC is really smart and although ML was def a douche back when they were young, we could really see some-although slow, but progressive character development on his part.

The MVP for this novel would def be the grandpa. I'm not... more>> sure yet as to what's to come since there are not that much chapters yet and I'm not willing to lose brain cells reading MTL since I already lost some, but I'll be back and update my review later when more chapters are in. <<less

I’m excited to see where this goes! I wasn’t expecting it to be that good because some of the reviews made it out to be horrible. I could see where their problems were but it’s translated very well and I enjoy the story. :) Not for everyone but I like it.

I'm holding back from giving a rating because Idk whether to give 4/5. This story has the potential of 5 stars but it's still rather early to say that.

This story entices me with the foreshadowing of angst. I love the MC. She is smart and reasonable. Meanwhile, I don't know whether I should like ML or not. Will be going back when there are more translated chapters.
