I Treated The Mastermind And Ran Away


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

I was reborn as an extra who was only used for her enormous power and then abandoned.

Adopted by the Count’s family and subjected to all kinds of abuse and humiliation, she endured without using her power. All to be kidnapped by the male protagonist of the novel, the cursed mastermind Grand Duke.


“I heard a prophecy that said you can lift my curse.”

“On one condition. I need money to buy my way out of this empire. And it would be even better if I had a suitable position.”

I pretended to be Cordelia, the heroine and female lead of the prophecy, and scammed him. All I wanted was freedom, not romance. Our agreement went smoothly.

……. Until it was discovered that I was not the female lead.

“Here you are. How dare you deceive me and run away?”

His dark red eyes, hidden behind the black eyepatch, stared at me. He slowly caressed my face with his bloodied hand and said in a chilling voice, “When you lied to me, you were determined to do so, right? The weight of responsibility will not be light.”

–Even though I tried to twist the original story, I ended up dying like this. I squeezed my eyes shut. Gently pressing my lips with his thumb, he said languidly, “Marry me.”

There was something wrong with the mastermind.

Gotta say... The writing doesn't feel very natural. The FL also spends a great deal of time losing her sh*t and freaking out. I like the premise and the story itself doesn't have any great flaws, but the FL is not as strong as the synopsis led me to believe.

None of the chapters leave me with a feeling of contentment. The FL is either too weak or too emotional, to a rather unbelievable level for someone who supposedly "Can't be tortured worse than she already has so feel free to... more>> do whatever to her". She just feels like a quivering child who is always trying - and failing - to put up a brave front.

I want to like this. It's a novel with all the cliche garbage that I normally subject myself to, but the quality and consistency just isn't there. 2/5 for now. Will check in from time to time. <<less

It's another Korean isekai romance with the obvious "I'm not like the others" gimmick in the form of the protagonist being reincarnated as an extra, without the saving grace of good execution. You can tell the author has absolutely no idea what they're doing because the character motivations and overall pacing are absolutely f*cked. At one point the author gave me major whiplash by throwing in a one year timeskip only for everything to be basically returned to how things were in under two or three chapters, except this time... more>> with a contract marriage oooooOooo!! This sort of stuff is just indicative of an inexperienced author who has set piece moments in their head but doesn't know how properly lead up to them.

Anyways, it's not a long read at all. Just give it a try yourself and keep what I've said in mind. <<less

I like it. I don't understand where is "MC keeps freaking out and losing her shit" came from. Like MC isn't some kind of character without a past and worries. I think it's pretty reasonable why she acted like that with the fact that she is basically gambling everything for freedom even tho she knows everything could go wrong if she is found out not to be the org FL and it was not like a 24/7 type of shit. She is pretty calm and tries to reason out stuff... more>> just to keep herself away from anxiety. I am actually quite surprised she is still holding on even tho if it was somebody else, they will probably be in a mental hospital by now. This kind of like the serious type of novel and you will not be laughing all the time especially if you want to lighten your mood. Depend on your taste tho, for me I love it. <<less

Contrary to reviews I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had low expectations but I gave it a try and it was a pleasant read. In the middle the translation got bit confusing but it got better and I was highly invested in the mystery of the novel.

The leads are smart but not perfect as they have complex because of their traumatic past. Both of them are working for a hopeful future... more>>

Basically the FL is abused and tortured by the temple and her adopted family for her divine power. She remembers her past life and understands she is in novel where she dies as a test subject so she plans to take og fl, Cordelia place. Gets kidnapped by ML who is suffering from curse and heals him but she isnt sure so she runs away


This is definitely not full of fluffs and more kind of suspense. We can feel they are beginning to grow feelings and care for each other while not even realizing it. The romance is there but very subtle as the leads are not looking for love but have goals they have to accomplish. <<less

The cover art is so freaking gorgeous! The ML is so freaking handsome!

Don't mind the negative comments, this is a good read. Each character traits are just normal, I like the ML being nonchalant in their relationship, not falling in love just like that. You know, it just flow naturally. Without the cliche of common cliches. I like the way the FL thinks and act, not every character even human can really act bravely in any circumstances. The plot is so good, I recommend it!

Though it's not complete yet. I... more>> salute the translation team for every effort they made into this novel for I can read it for free! Hehehe. I just hope I won't be left with a cliffhanger. <<less

I'm not sure whether it's poor writing, translation or editing, but this novel is a really hard read. The story runs so nonsensical and disjointed that it'll make your head hurt. If you've ever tried to read an MTL you'll know what I mean.

By all means give this a go, the premise of a ML chasing the FL is tantalising but RainOfSnow have better quality projects to invest your time in.
