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.

I read more than half.

This could be a 50-pages kind of story. I don't know exactly what it is that makes it longer, but every page is just 90% bla bla bla and 10% progression of the story. Its like watching a 30mins drama, with 20mins of advertisement and 5minutes of getting there to the main plot of the day and another 5 mins of the plot of the day.

For most of it, i'll skip and skip but still I can understand whats the plot of the day is.

Lucia, has... more>> the same concept, but that is more entertaining than this.

Read it when you don't have anything to finish reading. <<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

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

I think given that the MC was a knight in her previous life... the readers would probably expect her to be more ruthless and decisive but to me she resembles more of a conflicted youth who simply wants to relive the treasures of life she missed when she lost her family. Perhaps not what most readers were looking for such as face slapping and epic cut scenes but is it a good story? Without a doubt, if you ignore whatever expectation and fantasies you get from the MC after reading... more>> the summary. Perhaps if the author was more clear on how the story was gonna follow up from the start there would be less disappointment! But its a really nice shoujo novel and the face slapping, although not really as intense as u would expect, but still a satisfying read!

I hope you give this novel a try before judging on your own whether you had enjoyed this piece of art! <<less

The main character has been portrayed as such an innocent woman. The story is truly boring. She doesn't work for anything, want information... Call Kuhn, want access to dresses... Call prince. It's very predictable and I don't understand the reason people have been praising it. Please go and read novels like The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress, the MC in it doesn't boast about her skills but she is very clever as well hasas well-versed in what she learnt in her past life.

Plus, she expect no one to say... more>> anything about her character when she roams around at night with a strange man. And she wears such s*upid dresses just relying on her beauty to pave a path in every situation. I truly liked Helen more than the MC. The MC in this story is a true example of white lotus. <<less

I was hooked by the first chapter as it was really well-written. The beginning of this novel was great, but after the MC saves the ML, it's like her resolve for revenge just evaporates into nothing. I was disappointed because MC was written as the strongest female knight but after her rebirth, the decisiveness and ambition a knight usually hones from a lifetime of fighting, is non-existent. The pacing of the story is so slow and the relationship development between characters is meh. I got bored after the recycled face-slapping... more>> scenarios, so I dropped this. <<less

The story started out as really interesting but the writing style and the conversations don't really flow. Usually when I'm reading novels or books, they pull me in, making me feel the emotions of the characters, be it sadness, happiness or desire. This novel does not do so, as the emotions portrayed by the female characters and the others were as shallow as a small puddle, there were too many contradictions in the emotional state of the characters. To say that the female characters is dense would be a huge... more>> understatement and she keeps on blackmailing the Prince about the conditions of the contract, again and again, which was really uncomfortable, she's supposed to be the indebted one yet she doesn't understand that. Basically I have a huge problem with the female character's emotional and intellectual state, is she s*upid, is she dense or is she just naive? I read Lucia, another Korean rebirth novel in which the female is a neglected princess but she changes her choices and takes actions and precautions to change her previous fate, the novel was amazing, no contradicting emotional states and the conversations and writing style flowed smoothly. Another thing is that it might be because of the translators, because these are originally Korean novels translated into English, so the differences might be due to the translators but the fact remains that the female character of this novel is just straight up annoying. I'm wondering whether I should just drop this. <<less

For those who wants to read this, you need PATIENCE!

I was excited to read this and waited for all the chapters to finish but as I read I got really frustrated. PLOTHOLES! so many plotholes that was totally frustrating read. The MC is ultra dense and and a dunce! At the first few chapters, I think the MC was cool and you'd be excited reading this but as I get to ch30 or so... I started wanting to drop this and slap most of the characters in the story -... more>> including the MC. The only reason why I didn't drop this is because of the ML and I wanted to finish no matter how shitty I think this is. BUT I'm actually glad I didn't drop this. At ch200, the story gets better, the MC is getting cooler too.

The translation quality... 10/10! ⭐️ <<less

This was a very very very long novel with some very interesting arcs but then also some very boring arcs. I think if you are coming into this hoping for a lot of battles or cunning moments from the FL (Elena) it is kind of few and far between as she spends half the novel navigating noble politics. The ending battles/fight is the most interesting but it will take you 250+ chapters to get there (but very highly recommended, she unleashes the whole point of this thing which is she's... more>> a freaking strong female knight).

This novel does have a lot of cute, mushy moments between the ML (Carlisle) and FL (Elena), actually an excessively large amount. If you want a lot of romance and cute moments between ML and FL, then this is it. I think Elena is an interesting character but is so extremely 'perfect' in every way, I don't think you can go through a single chapter (of which there are 300+) without it mentioning how utterly beautiful she was and the fact that she is one of the strongest knights out there but she trains for literally no amount of time post reincarnation (the muscle memory must be strong). But ohmygod the real 1-D character with no growth/change is the ML. The impression of him from like the first few chapters is literally the same character you will get 300 chapters later, he is just a very obsessed, over-protective in-love man and if that's what you want then that's what you get. But the flirting moments, literally amazing. The romance is there from the get-go cause our boy's been in love with her for forever.

All the other supporting characters are cute though (mostly Elena's family) and the epilogue stories were probably my favorite of them all! Also Naver novels are amazing in art, it really brings the chapters to life. To be honest I do recommend this novel but would say you could probably skip like 30% of the novel and still get to the point, some of the beginning and middle filler is so useless I can't even remember them now. <<less

I was interested by the title and premise, but the cover art really worried me. She's supposed to be a female knight but she looks like a typical shoujo protag? Well, perhaps since she time looped back into her younger self, she's going to hide her brutality and use wits and cunning to solve her problems.

Nope. It's just another tr*shy romance novel where the protag is an idiot and the male interest is an ass.

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...)

*directors voice* okaaaaaayy people, places! annnndddd... start!

howdy kids! today, we've arrived at Return of the Female Knight, a battlefield-ridden, incredibly-attractive-male-lead, an-equally-attractive-female-lead, sprinkled with daddy issues, ride of a novel!!! YAY!

my rating on this ride is 3.5 stars, and that's because it was short, sweet, romance-ridden, and a male lead who DIDN'T commit any creepy, breaking-the-boundaries, weird sh*t. amen, Jesus.

I'm not going to do a super-intense-over-analysis on this novel cause if I did, we'd be here for a while, but this novel is like popcorn. a good filler, something people... more>> always lean to when choosing snacks/novels. there was no over-the-top scheming (although I do enjoy that) and while the FL did have a tiny bit of a halo, she experiences her fair share of failure.


while some of the characters don't evolve at all, or act more like a child (Mirabelle) or have a stereotypical disease of 'my wife died so I treat my eldest daughter badly' (good old' Father)


I wouldn't let small things ruin the experience, and it's best to read it and formulate your own opinion. I liked it so <3. anyway,

xoxo, MiRA

edit: the reason why its five stars is cause I accidentally clicked the wrong star -_- <<less

I can’t comprehend how crappy and terrible this book was. The MC is nothing but a stereotypical poorly written character. I don’t know if anyone will take notice but they actually had there first time in a cave? Where the floor was wet?! What type of a setting was this. If I’m being too honest then tough luck I can’t help that the ML was cringy and every time they both had a romance scene I couldn’t help but laugh at how at it was such a bad attempt they did at trying to converse a normal conversation between the two not only that but it doesn’t get worse from there. The cliches are so bad that it’s even comparable to a wattpad fanfic. Overall here the brutal past doesn’t justify as a strong MC because it’s actually the complete opposite. The ML is literally a love dove and gets really annoying but it’s so cringy oh let’s not forget how bad the ball scene was JESUS so bad. Hahah anyway it was my first review and yeah anyone looking to read this it’s simply cringy and it was definitely written by a 12 year old.

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

I will probably never get back to reading this.
The concept is interesting but the execution is just... so bad. So many chapters I rolled my eyes because they put the emphasis on the FL looking so beautiful, and the male lead and her looking so goood together. So many chapters of frustration because the FL refuses to stand up to her father, or call the ML out for his weird ass behaviour. (Giving her expensive gifts she is uncomfortable with, or getting really jealous and possessive over the most... more>> basic interactions with other guys...)

It is disappointing. This is just another shitty European noble setting, with the background that she is a knight, sometimes. (Rarely, at the point I stopped.)

Writing this all out... I really have nothing positive to say about this novel. <<less

4.5 stars

It's very well done. The translation is good. The flow of the story is good. But it's quite a bit long, it kinda drags a lil bit.

The interaction of the mc's are sweet. I really like it, you can see (or rather, read) the chemistry between them. The thing I like the most is that the ML is not controlling the fl. He's protective of her, but not to the point of constricting her freedom.

Not so bad yet just good hahaha I tend to skip the boring parts especially mirabelle love story. You can already guess some plots and twist. So if you already read many novels with the same kind of genre you will find it boring and if you just started reading this kind of genre then I think its bearable.

I can’t, she’s done nothing interesting by this point. From the 1st chapter, I thought there is murder and more action, but it was just said and then left to rot. There’s so much talking and there was none of the action I came for in the 1st chapter. I’m bored, so I’m leaving this novel to find something better.

I really liked this book! It's a good fantasy romance novel for those interested in that genre. The translation was really good as well, so thank you Translators!! Also, the pictures that come with the story were a huge bonus while reading this!

The pacing was well done in my opinion and every character had their moment to shine. The FL and ML fluff moments were the best!! This book has a strong FL, but she also has her own struggles that she has to work through, and with the help... more>> of ML she does. THE ENDING WAS AMAZING, we all love a good Happy Ending! :) <<less
