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.

I rate so low due unreadable for myself. I dislike that translate (unless that follow original raw) actually include picture icon on every speak/communicate. It's too disturbing for me to able to read paragraphs between speak lines. It feels like a phone or cheap otome game that 2d vibe.

Maybe the story isn't bad but I just....... cant read pass see all every have picture icon with speak sentence (even unknown or just person with gray icon) then paragraph but too many communicate than describe so it becomes weird picture... more>> with a story but, not a picture book.

I have to amazing for who the reader able to read and love it.

for story opening to a few chapters, I did find some interest but again there something huge miss when reading a story. so I give 2 stars instead of 1 star for not bad opening and understand where the story will forward but not plot. Just that warrior lady come back past and want to save family so she made a quick action. <<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...)

kuraha9 told us to give it a comment at chapter 1, although I am indeed intended to wait until the chapters goes to 100+... but now Im mad.. I should not listen to him, because now I keep clicking next and next.. till there is no chapter left.. Now im like the rest of you, tormented to wait next chapter.. damn, this novel is a first for me to have a great visual presentation and good mature romance story.. I mean, there is visual icon for each conversation, remind me... more>> of old novel game on my PC.. very easy to read, and help a lot creating an imaginative scene for the character. This is what you can recognized as beautiful female lead indeed! <<less

So currently I am hanging and I dont know if I will read it further...

The translations are great and the added illustrations as well but at least for me the story became gradually more boring and I believe thats because between social gatherings and a pampering crown prince whos obviously love actions are not seen by the dense Elena nothing really relevant happens in 80% of the chapters.

Still, I think it is great that the protagonist holds her ground against the prince and is telling him that her sword is... more>> part of who she is even though she also (as many other pampered wifes or wifes-to-be...) tends to hold herself back somehow. <<less

This is one of the more impressive novels I’ve read, regardless of it’s cliches.

I generally don’t care about any of the reused story elements found in every shoujo work because if it works it works, and I personally did not find it annoying that they were used in this one. The translation is fantastic and I absolutely love the use of icons to indicate who is talking. It’s so common for novels to never say who’s talking and most translators don’t bother writing it, so it was a really nice... more>> touch. Aside from that, the prose is rather good and the translation flows very well. It’s clear the translator has experience writing fiction.

The characters can be a bit dense (particularly the FL), and it can get annoying when due to the dramatic irony of knowing what is being planned behind the scenes, but I think it adds to the suspense. The focus is mainly on the FL and ML, obviously, but the side characters are fun, if a bit one dimensional. It would be nice if we could see them fleshed out more, especially Kuhn and Maribelle.

There’s quite a bit of politics in play, which is also fun as well. If you’re looking for something long to pass the time, I recommend RotFL. <<less

If you’re looking for a life changing story or expecting something super revolutionary obviously this isn’t the novel for you. Generally this was quite entertaining and you’re guaranteed to have a good time if you’re shoujo trash like I am. The problem I usually have with these novels are usually the personality of the characters, generally the male lead. They tend to have super sadistic, manipulative and obsessive behaviours and they like to casually spout lines that gives off stalker or even r*pey vibes at times. So im glad to... more>> announce that this novel’s main lead is given a pass in my book! I love the way they set up the text and the illustrations are pretty so id say that overall this is an inoffensive and enjoyable novel. <<less

I stayed up so late reading this story, it's the most satisfied I've been reading this type of book for a long time. The pacing is great and the characters are well-fleshed out with their own motivations. As time goes on we see more and more as to why the male lead seems to be so smitten with the MC and I live for it. The MC doesn't suddenly lose all reason after meeting the ML which was sadly refreshing compared to other similar stories. Also the translations are really... more>> well done! Dialogue is supplemented by pictures of the characters like a visual novel game, and there is an illustration at the end of almost every chapter. I highly recommend it! <<less

(Edit: As you can see, my initial impression was very good, but I ended up dropping it when it devolved into a Cinderella story and the 'warrior' part was traded in for a tone of 'she's a real woman after all.' I may check back later to see if that was just one arc or it really turned into a 'Prince pampers his Princess' story.' Too much cat fights at parties, not enough warrior. If I could take away a star or two, I would.)

This is a really... more>> great story. The female lead is strong and competent, not a child, and most thrillingly, doesn't take a massive downgrade in ability when the ML shows up. And he respects her! Amazing, right? I'm loving this. <<less

It's sooo good! I love how Elena is over protective of Mirabelle. The sisterly love between them is so beautiful. Caril and Elena together is perfect. Caril is so protective of Elena ❤ Just wish Elena wasn't so dense.

This is the first time I got hooked in reading a novel. Normally I would get bored in the middle of the story but this got me reading up to 70 chapters in a day. I love the heroine and the plot is really nice. Though some scenes were a bit cliche, I loved them. Maybe because I actually don't mind cliche stuff *>*

im so looking forward for upcoming updates the story is sooo amazing and it has a dark sense of atmosphere (the ML and mc). The past have way more than the history itself. It's like the bridge reconnected because a certain event did not happen. They are sooo caring to each other and the storry makes you breatheless. Yaaaa ( ̄3 ̄)
