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

Sakura was murdered by her family.

The place she was born in again was exactly the same place she read about in her favorite novel.

That is, Reshiya, a kingdom that coexists with spirits.

The person she was born as was Claudia, a member of the Letsya duke family that commanded the kingdom’s army for generations; and also hated by everyone for the divine protection she received from the dark spirits’ king.

Because of that, Claudia was feared by her surroundings from a very young age and her family had a hard time bringing her up.

In the novel, Claudia was forced to marry into another kingdom in order to bind a peace treaty. But when Reshiya opposed to the pact in the last moment, Claudia was taken as a hostage and murdered in the enemy kingdom.

Could Sakura who still held memories of her past life avoid the sorrowful fate of Claudia?

Other reviews are really overhyping this novel waaaaay too much ! Like Yeah the start was good and all but after some chapters it becomes unbearable to read the MC doesn't have any backbone to defend herself even tho apparently she has the All-So-Powerful Dark spirit king with her that can destroy the world also the backstory and the reason why people avoid and fear her is utter bs even for medieval times.

I love a tragic heroine~ I'm crying here...

This story is SO good, would definitely recommend. 5/5

My only gripe is that that the 'next chapter' and 'previous chapter' buttons aren't really made well, so it might be better to keep the NU page open.

Its a novel about a girl who try to be above discrimination and the usual avoiding bad route. The story premise is interesting, but there's still no fluff yet typical of otome reincarnation genre. The translation is good, so don't hesitate to read it.

Most of the characters are too dumb to live. I also don't get how a fairy tale from before recorded history (no proof it ever happened) would make a mother hate and fear her own daughter from birth. At least not to that extreme.

There's not much fluff; the author seems to prefer focusing on how hated and feared the protagonist is to the point of making almost everyone act like they have IQs below 50.

I'm not sure what the author's trying to accomplish here but I predict (not having read... more>> past chapter 6) that it will continue with 2/3 people hating or fearing her for no reason and acting like dumb jerks, and 1/3 people coming to her defense, mostly by pointing out she's a duke's daughter. And then at the last chapter people will suddenly realize that she's actually a human being, not a monster, and she'll live happily ever after with the male lead and will never suffer discrimination again.

At least if the discrimination had some variation, or if ANYONE was smarter about it. There are plenty of ways to bully someone without directly attacking them in public. There are also plenty of ways to discriminate without telling her to her face they hate her.

2 stars because the translation's good and the basic premise is decent, if poorly executed. <<less

Actually this LN is quite short (16 chapters), and 9 out of 16 chapters are about MC is hated/feared by other people or her parents. With only 7 remaining chapters, I think you all know what will happen after this, fast and confused.

... more>>

After chapter 9 the story turn into awkward... Sadly victory from war not effect much for MC except knights' opinion. At celebration party, the original protagonist try to insult MC lead to the knights and mc's friends go aganist her. So the original protagonist order the light spirit king to kill everyone, but turn out, the light spirit king abandon the protagonist and blessing MC instead, and that make mc's skintone turn to white... After that everyone's opinion about MC are all changed!!! It's kinda like other people's opinion around MC are just base on skin color more than her merit, even her mother (at least, it's a comfort to know that MC is not forgiving type). After that MC turn into popular woman, so ML confess to her and they start dating (everything until now happen in just 2-3 chapters). And remaining chapters (time skip) are about finding a spy that try to assassinate MC, and small ending at the end of last chapter...


I think this LN is quite good if you just read it for fun, but if you getting serious it will turn into a mess. Don't expect realistic plot, don't expect that MC will turn to dark side and then burn baby burn (lol, cuase I am and end up disappointing). <<less

Quite interesting premise and also quite refreshing from other Isekai action genre, I feel like that since I'm not overly familiar with otome game/genre in general

The story is about MC who reincarnated into a game world which she played before, she know her demise and overall story, and try to avoid it at all cost.
