Return of the Female Knight


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

Elena, who spent her entire life as a cold-blooded female knight to avenge her family, ended up dying without claiming her revenge. When she opened her eyes she found that she went back into the past. By day she was a lady in a dress, and at night she carried a sword to change history and prevent her family’s destruction.

“I want to marry you, Your Highness,” she said to the crown prince. She would do this to save her family.

Love it! This is the kind of novel I've been looking for! Strong intelligent female lead? ✓ Political maneuvers? ✓ Romance? ✓ Heartwarming family? ✓ A little action? ✓ No harem? ✓

Best of all? The author seems to treat the characters with a little dignity, actually giving them an actual brain! The things you learn!

I'm very happy to have discovered this.

Looking forward to reading more.

Thank you translators! ≪3~

One of the most promising novels i've found recently, would 100% recommend to read it to see where it goes.

I know a lot of people like to wait for more releases to start reading, but I ask you to at least leave a like and comment on the first chapter, because the translator is deciding to pick this up or not by the responses in the comments.

What an amazing novel, I was completely taken by surprise! It checks every single one of my boxes.

    • An actually competent female protagonist with drive and a goal? Check!
    • A pragmatic point of view? Check!
    • Well-rounded characters with motives who care about each other? Check!
    • A fricking marriage of convenience, yes please!
    • Protagonist faces s*xism that isn't either a strawman or condoned by the story! What! Checkcheckcheck
Also a struggle to prevent a coup and decently done battle scenes and just such a departure from the whole badly-researched sorta-European reincarnated Japanese princess-knight light novel thing, I am frothing at the mouth. I should've guessed it would end up being Korean.

The translation is great too, it reads very fluently and lots of updates. I'm looking forward to this novel in the future. :)

cute and well written. Love the characters and their development, and how they don't fit into the classic tropes. Can't find the raws, but will be keeping updates frequently

So exciting! Very few novels have female MC's, and even fewer have female MC's in action novels. It seems there will be romance in the story, but the main point of the story so far has been to highlight the MC's sheer badassery and dedication towards her family, which just makes her even more awesome. It's unusual to have an MC with a female perspective delve into a medieval knight fighting society and try to best the super powerful antagonist of the story. For sure, most action novels do not... more>> have the MC taking care of housework and striving to keep their powers under wrap for a legitimate reason. So much of the time, novels just make the power hiding a forgotten point in the plot. "Oh... the MC hides their power because they like... hiding their power... (and because the author needs to write in more faceslapping incidents) ". Not here, there's a solid reason for her hiding her power and I enjoy that there is a solid plot because a solid plot serves as the foundation to a great story. I think this story has the potential to be great and I think people should add it to their reading lists and prepare to become addicted. <<less

The format of this novel is pretty fascinating and the multitude of images makes the story more fun to read.

It is too early to say about the characters or the plot, but the translator did an amazing job. The emotional parts are really gripping. I don't think I will be getting bored of this, anytime soon and really looking forward to it. Also it doesn't use any of the common troupes of this genre so it's kind of a fresh storytelling.

For those who like romance and time travel (second chance),... more>> this is a pretty decent read. <<less

Seems like it will be a great novel. Great translation, great plot.

After her death, the main character is sent back in time. She wants to prevent her family from being killed and picks up a sword to do so. As of chapter 3, she is moving to act and there is a sense of urgency. In other words, the story isn't a Japanese novel clone; it is Korean after all.

The crown prince will probably become a love interest. It must be him in the cover illustration. As of chapter 3... more>> he hasn't been introduced yet so I can't say much about him.

This translator puts tiny pictures of characters next to their dialogue. This particular novel also has several color illustrations so far. To me this was a great bonus which helped bring the characters to life. <<less

Promising start. As a person who has read many reincarnation novels this is already a good start. The MC is very likeable. Since there's only 4 chapters out, the ratings may not be accurate (both good and bad ratings...)
