A Korean woman reincarnates in a novel into a young girl already on the verge of death, but was rescued by the future villain and his grandma. The villain of the novel “The Duke of Perse” was in her mind a fantastic employer. He paid in full and on time. On top of that work was easy to do compared to the work she used to have to do.

To save her own skin because she knows that the Villain’s fiancee (the Heroine of the original novel) was cheating on him with the Emperor. The fiancee decides to poison him, so as to leave her free to marry her lover. She knows that once this happens everyone who was in employ to the Duke would be killed off as a suspected assassin.

She prevents this from happening and is in turn suspected as the assassin. Though, it was found out she was innocent once they feed her the poison transforming her back into a 6-year-old girl. The Duke decides to “reward” her by getting her adopted into a noble family…. The most evil family known for assassins.

If you are looking for a slow-romance-and-lots-of-comedy, this is for you lol

As told in the summary, after drinking a poison she turns into a 6 yr old child and lord, let me tell you...

Ciel aka FL:

    1. She will just say whatever is in her mind and it's so hilarious.
    2. She is smart but at the same time clueless, but not in the "omg wth is wrong with u" but on the "lol wth are u thinking lmao"
    3. Spoiler

      she doesn't realize the ML flirting with her and it's so funny because they are talking but both on different topics

Perse aka ML:

    1. He's the type of "idc bout women but yes war" kinda guy
    2. Spoiler

      at some point we can see that he really likes Ciel but as mentioned above she just thinks he's being nice or something lol

Adopted Fam:

    1. Older brother? Love, he's really funny
    2. Second brother? Kinda frustrating but gets better
    3. Father?


    4. The maid is just fabulous!!!!!
    5. Spoiler

      they are just really crazy people that drink poison (it seems) I can't believe one of the test to become of the family was for poor Ciel to drink poison...

    6. And well, they are villains and take it with pride :)

This is a really good novel. I really like it, especially since their are assassins involved. The last words in chapter 4 really got me!!! like imagine a small child saying that?!?! God have mercy on me, do not let me become a pe*ophile..... jk. I have recently seen the manhwa 'Suddenly became a princess one day' and goddamn Athanasia!! I really want to meet cover artist of this novel cause goddamn the details!!! THE DETAILS!!!! Anyway, since its still newly release, there is still no bad comments from me... more>> and I hope it continues. This novel is unique from the others because of the assassin family. It would really add the excitement if the author decided to let Siel be trained by the assassin family. BTW, poor Siel for being poisoned.. hu.. hu.... but being turned into a child isn't a bad thing (especially for me!!) I am really excited and can't wait for the release of the new chapter..... though I really want to know who the cover artist is!! <<less

The translator is Heaven Sent! Not only do they work like clockwork on the releases, but they maintain a good quality as well. Plus, they're also very receptive when minor grammar or translation corrections are being pointed out. Bless them ??

Going right into the story, I love this so much! The heroine is amazing. She's definitely on the practical side but she can also be endearingly and ridiculously outspoken. Perhaps it does have to do with her being in the state she is in, but I believe that's basically... more>> her personality either ways. So many hilarious and sweet family moments despite the reputation of her adoptive family. I like the pace of the story so far. It's not too overwhelming but also not too slow-going. Also, the romance is a bit reserved for now, but the moments we have had so far just get me bad. Thankfully, there's not much filler in the chapters too. <<less

It's not bad if you don't count some plotholes there and here.

At the beginning it was doing great, then after the strange fluffy moments, it's like the author forgot the initial personalities of the ML and decided to make him fall. Kinda random, but I guess it was the aftermath of the sugar rush...? I didn't count the adoptive family suddenly doting attitude though. I mean, my girl earned the love with her overwhelming cuteness. Her intelligence was one of her strong points, but now she leans more on the... more>> airhead sly type. However, her childishness is explained at the beginning when the doctor said that she'll have some "side-effects". So, it's ok. Overall, a nice read. <<less

I loved the novel, I really appreciate the the rising action, the characters, their improvement, the relationship between MC and the assassin family is really cute and funny at times xD, her relationship with Duke Perse is gold. It won't be a surprise if it gets an adaptation into webtoon once the novel is completed.

Well, it's wonky. Typical KR webnovel with harem Mary Sue protagonist. Translation quality is definitely MTL, and sometimes it's okay but sometimes I really don't know what's going on. That's personally why I ended up dropping it, in addition to the continued illogical developments. It makes no sense ML would go as far as he does for MC honestly, and the same is true of the family....

It really breaks ML's character, as well as the family's, although I know the author wants to go for "obsessively in love and utterly... more>> doting". As a result, the father's cold-hearted persona broke at like their third meeting, it's absurd. Also, I know the author did it to make her seem "cute", but her obsession with cookies is just so weird. She's already HOW old and yet behaves like this???? The author gave her a backstory with a lot of suffering so her character should be more realistic and mature, yet she's just so absurd it makes no sense. <<less

Meant to give it four stars, but misclicked and didn't realize it until I had saved...

Not sure if it's a problem with the translation (pretty sure it is though) but from chapter four onward there is a shift in the writing that makes things a bit jumbled and only gets worse as the story progresses until chapter eight where it picks up again and starts making more sense.

I'm fairly certain that it was a cohesive story at one point but I'm guessing that the translator or editor changes because the... more>> way things are presented is rough at the best of times and completely nonsensical the rest of the time.

Chapters one through four are quite okay, but I lost interest somewhere around chapter six and could barely stomach it until around chapter eight. Then it gets confusing again in chapter ten, but I'm hoping it will be expanded upon when chapter eleven comes out, so this might just be some obfuscation on the author's part. <<less

So, first up: the translation's a bit wonky. Apparently it's being retranslated, but I haven't been able to confirm for myself since the site's nonfunctional for me. C'est la vie! But for the novel itself--

Look, it's not a masterpiece. I, frankly, love it, but that's because I have poor taste. It's a shlocky cliche ridden mess with plot holes all over the place and a protagonist who can't decide if she's a seventeen year old in a child's body or a child pretending she was once seventeen (this is handwaved... more>> with a few mentions of her mental age potentially regressing to her physical age, but that's never confirmed one way or another, so grain of salt.) Everyone falls in love with her after just a few moments - despite having zero reason to and often going against their alleged character for it.

Now, here's the thing: Once I got a few chapters in, especially after we'd met Sharkis's father, I realized what I was getting into: everyone is going to love the MC. It's going to be a harem drama. The plot will not be well-developed, and I shouldn't take it seriously. And frankly, that's the best way to enjoy it! Or the only way, really. The moment I started thinking about it too deeply, everything got really, really dang creepy.

And... Not in a good way. In a, the author didn't think through the implications of everyone smashing face-first into the ground for a seven year old child, or they did and that makes it infinitely worse. It's difficult to say that it's just a few sis-cons and the one dude who knew her when she was an (almost) adult, because well... it's not really shown. I'm not completely through the work - I struggled through MTL'ing the untranslated chapters for a bit, though, and in general it's just a poorly done comedy that tries to add some undercurrents of intrigue. That's my take, and the least creepy way to read it all.

Give it a shot if you enjoy shlocky works or want to power down your braincells for a bit! But, don't go in with high hopes. It ain't that deep. <<less

The story itself is really interesting, and I really hope to find out where it goes someday. It looks like there used to be a really good translation out there, but it was taken down. The "Daydreamer translates" version notes that they were redoing the first 13 chapters since another site had gone down and that another group (that has apparently gone under in the meantime) was doing 14+.

Ok, in general, this novel is very interesting and enthralling. I really favor the MC and ML being together. I do agree with some that some personalities randomly changed, however, the story is still quite intriguing and worth one’s time. Although the novel is Mtled, as I’ve heard, it is still very accurate and well written as it makes complete sense. It is great, and I LOVE THE COVERS!!

I really love this story! I first thought it would be more romance tho...


In the end it is more like a child getting spoiled XD The adoptive father and brothers get really cute, but I hope the ML will get more screentime soon too!

The story makes me dizzy. I agree on someone stating that the story is wonky because it really is...

I'm like, huh? It's all over the place right from the start. I mean she's supposed to be treated as a lady already even though she turned into a child because everybody knows that she's old enough to be treated like one. Am I the weird one in here?

There were also inconsistencies from the characters. They magically turn docile, because of cuteness in a short amount of time. I mean, aren't you... more>> all supposed to be a monster-like villain?

Too many plot holes right from the start and I can't keep up (>.<) I'm trying to understand the story by letting go some of my logic to submerge myself.

Hopefully, the story turns for the better in the long run. <<less

In my opinion, this novel is all over the place. The english translation is crazy and I honestly couldn't make myself read past chapter 10. You simply can't understand how the acts play out and it's absolutely mind boggling how people find this novel entertaining.

Would read it again if someone else picked it up and translated it again.

1/10, hands down one of my worst reads this year.

I don't want to give a rating, since it's still not fully translated and I didn't read the raws, but this novel sounds really interesting and is off to a good start.
... more>>

Instead of a cliché "I reincarnated into a novel, saves the villain, the villain falls in love with me", and happily-ever-after, the villain had some kind of plan in mind and locked the MC in prison after MC saved him. It seems that the story doesn't follow the cliché line-up.


The story plot was more refreshing than ones I usually read, and the author didn't make it too cliché so it was good. A bit dramatic and some parts were not the most fluent (for me), the story over all (in the first few chapters) was nice.

The MC turning into a child was a bit of a turn-off for me though. I don't really want to see the MC spend her whole childhood doing plotting stuff again.

It's great but it's weird how everyone just suddenly loves her. I like the concept that she's basically adopted into a house filled with criminals lol. But, my only question is, "why"?

At first it started out fine, it was really funny and interesting when she saved the duke and became a kid. Moments later though, the duke must have been grateful since he's so overly kind to her. It's just weird how, when she turned into a child, the duke immediately likes her. Even Sharkis, immediately likes her. I can... more>> understand why, since Sharkis' personality is enough proof why he's like that but it's kinda exaggerated on the other characters though.

I don't get how they all fall for her and 'oh my after she calls her soon-to-be-adoptive-father-that-was-rumored-to-be-merciless-and-have-never-showed-affection-to-any of-his-children "papa", he suddenly loves her so much and even willingly let the test that was supposed to measure her worth into this house end even though they'd! have! only! met! once!'

kyaa. kyaa.

It's just weird, it could be just me though. My only question is 'why'. why. WHY??? What the heck. Why do these randos love her so much?? I mean from the ML's perspective he could have had some gratitude for saving him BUT! LOVE! JUST! DOESN'T! WORK! THAT! WAY! cuz if it did, going by that same logic, THEN MAYBE THE ML COULD HAVE ALREADY FALLEN IN LOVE WITH ONE OF HIS KNIGHTS SINCE THEY ALSO SAVED HIM FOR THE MOST PART IN THE WAR OR WHATEVER BATTLES HE WENT IN?? HA?? I DON'T GET IT WTH. THE TRANSLATIONS ALSO MAKE EVERYTHING MESSIER.


It's like their previous character description and how they act just to prove it is pointless in less than 5 chapters. Idk why. It's kinda useless. 'oh my all the villains fell in love with this young lady because she's oh so lovely' after basically not doing anything that could catch your attention except for being immune to poison and being practically smart and fast at learning (WELL SHE'S AN ADULT INSIDE). I as a reader don't even have anything to give as evidence. It's like she has this spell around her that makes these dudes just love her.

In short, there's no character development. Everyone in that novel is just weird and over exaggerating. I guess if it's the case like our MC, then maybe put any child on the hands of the duke and the grand duke and sure enough they'll fall in love with it too. I'm just saying, there's nothing really special bout the MC except for knowing how to use forbidden magic. The conditions that she entered that darn house was because she was cute which practically destroys the image of the strict and serious duke and it doesn't make sense at all too. I agree with Shurei's first opinion that it was nonsense, but he also fell for her. I was expecting that the Duke would let her enter after seeing her skills, not her childishness. And it's s*upid about how he practically puts a 5 year old something kid on a cage with a monster that's specifically a hundred times taller than her with fangs and stuff and she doesn't have anything but a dagger and "papa". Any kid can be as cute as her, she didn't cry though so I guess that's funny. It just doesn't make sense at all at how this dude suddenly loves her as a daughter.

There's no character development, the plot is... well it's great but not much drama just over exaggerated fighting over her, everything else is, hmm.

Love the cover though. <<less
