During a party one evening in the royal palace, Rachel, the eldest daughter of Duke Ferguson, was reproached by Prince Elliot for sins she didn’t remember committing and their engagement was abandoned. Rachel informed everyone she had not committed the acts they were accusing her of, but she was dragged away out of the party venue and thrown into the palace dungeon.

And so Rachel thought,

“Hooray for my slow doing-whatever-I-want life! No more queen’s education, no more noisy servants–today marks the start of my long vacation!”

Between enjoying all of the preparations she had made for this very occasion and constantly harassing the annoying Prince, Rachel is going to enjoy her slow prison life to the fullest!

This is one of those novels where, if it's on the same wavelength as you, you'll enjoy it. If it's not, then you won't.

The draw of the story is the comedy, so obviously, not everyone will "get it" or think it's that funny. Personally, I thought the beginning was pretty interesting but it started getting repetitive with zero plot or character development, just one antic after another.

None of the characters, MC included, are very realistic or fleshed out, at a certain point, I just got tired of the exclamation marks... more>> and shocked looks etc. When the prince tries to get his way and fails.

But you won't know unless you try it to see if it's your cup of tea, so I recommend making an attempt at least. <<less

I thought this would be one of those lame stories where common sense promptly flies out the window and the characters would soon become utter idiots.

I tried it anyway. And with the prince, I wasn't disappointed.

But I soon found that it was MY own common sense flying out the window as I reached the end of the second chapter. At which point, I stood up and applauded.

Wow, this is definitely a five out of five. This LN is essentially a big pot of crack. Need something to cheer you up? Look no further, this LN will satisfy all of your needs. The basic premise is simple: A sociopath noble girl troll the f*** out of the prince who unjustly imprisoned her. The FL trolling skills have reached a legendary level; it's extremely funny to see her trolled the prince and put the middle finger to common sense in general.

Was interesting in the beginning. I love a good psychopath MC, but after staying in the dungeon for too long maybe it eroded her brain and personality. MC has elite shadow team and capable people yet chooses to stay inside dungeon? Ok fine. But just staying there while idiot Prince with his losee idiot followers try to fight her with their stupid attempts was funny after one or two times, but it just went on for too long. MC might have the patience to deal with these idiots, but I... more>> certainly don't. <<less

Its a pretty unique novel. It was very fun the first few chapters then kind of became repetitive ? I found the pace not to my liking. And the humor very try hard at points.

It's a hilarious novel if it's your style otherwise it's not. I would recommend try reading it and judge for yourself. Its a okay novel for me personally but dropped because the characters were too much.

I mainly dropped after her brother admitted to having incest like feelings towards his sister. There's some casual jokes on sexual harassment that I dislike so dropped. There's also tonnes of bullying buy the MC to the degree the victims got PTSD.


I know this is a novel more focused on humor but some things went too far for me.

The story begins with an idiotic prince who breaks off his engagement with the female lead and asks her to be imprisoned in the dungeons. Thinking this might be one of the usual tropes where the FL repents and is given a second chance, I was about to drop it. However, after reading the second chapter, I was amazed.

... more>>

Turns out the FL is a psychopath from young and was just holding back her inner demons for the sake of the engagement. Once the engagement is broken, she enjoys a jolly life in the dungeon by locking it from the inside and ends up having tea, snacks, books already placed inside by her spies. My favorite part was when she threatened the idiotic prince with a crossbow.

The best way to summarize this story would be "Tom and Jerry", a cat whose a cartoon villain and tries to eat the mouse but gets outwitted every step of the way. It's a shallow, but mildly refreshing novel that focuses on nothing but comedy and face slapping. I'm very glad that there's not an ounce of romance in this novel, for it would have ruined the flow of this story tremendously. Rather than Josei though, I would have labeled this shoujo myself.

that said, the plot and it's characters aren't... more>> deep. Everyone besides Rachel and her allies are idiots and the prince is nothing but a flimsy paper antagonist to allow Rachel's schemes come to fruition. Rachel herself is just OP, full stop. There's no tension, everyone knows Rachel is going to win, and the plot never becomes more than "idiot prince tries to harass Rachel but gets his ass handed to him" with increasingly fanatical schemes. The ending is rather unfulfilling and anticlimactic but I still enjoyed it to a certain degree. <<less

This is pretty good. Instead of the usual otome villainess cliche and tropes we have a psycho noble daughter who defies common sense and just does whatever she wants.
The humor is pretty funny too. I'm looking forward to more chapters

It's a great comedy that consistently has me laughing.

Most chapters involve the MC either trolling her captors, or outwitting them when they attempt to turn the tables on her.

Besides this, there isn't much of a plot, so I'd recommend not binge reading it in order to keep the humor fresh.

Have you ever thought to yourself... hmm how do I learn to be a troll and yet still be as elegant as a noble? Well, you have just found the perfect text book!

This is a comedic twist on the typical villainess novel and slow life genre.. of course peppered to the brim with ultimate trolling skill. Why scheme against other royalty when you can just troll them as they danced around your palm.. why worry so much when you can enjoy a slow life, as you dine upon your adversaries’s... more>> misery and drink their salty tears!!

Truly.. Such a perfection to the art of living!


Day 1

Prince: Haha take this! You are now my prisoner!

Rachel: Hm hm hmmm.. Really? *sips tea*

Day 3

Prince:Please just leave already...

Rachel: *sips cup of prince’s tears*

This is comedy gold. It starts out pretty slow and kind of boring, but I am at the part where she writes her own novel. And the last part of the story has me crying with laughter!

the story is quite funny, with characters which are likable and some which makes you face palm and ones you cheer for whole heartedly.

The main character is quite fresh, Rachel is a badass who was “crazy” as a child.

she sings a cute song while holding an axe (When she was a kid) her parents are scared of her, but the fact that the brother doesn’t know who she really is quite troublesome (?)

... more>>theres also this part in her past when she threw his highness into a pond! And she began to remember the joy she had when she was “crazy” as a child, wanting to savor this emotion <<less

To be honest it's not that good, the storyline is kinda dull.

I've read various novels centered around the idea that the villainess doesn't actually want to end up with their fiancée and so I thought I had an idea of what to expect. Let me say it isn't like the others whatsoever.

I honestly don't know what vibes the author was going for; it's strange mix between crack-ish comedy and actual drama plot.

The MC just spends her time not doing anything but teasing the prince and then the gets praised because... more>> wow so cool you managed to annoy the prince!

They constantly say that the MC is only playing around with him, and if she really got serious she'd deal with him in two minutes but you never really see it in action.

The prince has a brain cell and a half and same with the heroine.

The characters all have a strange personalities and they aren't fully fleshed out, while the side characters are easy to forget.

Honestly I read this till the end hoping it would get better but it didn't.

There's no point or end goal, just stringing you from one chapter to the other. Even the comedy here is weak, it's things like I set your butt on fire or you don't understand how I got things into this prison cell without you noticing. TLDR: If you came for a serious novel this isn't it, if you came for comedy this isn't it either. It's more of a vague parody of other novels that belong to this genre. <<less

The story was nice and funny at the beginning, but after a while the idea of having strong women and stupid men is reported for all the characters which was a little bit boring. I think the writer didn't have a lot of story lines and the ending was a shock for me. Never thought I regret reading this novel and wasting my time to have one of the worst ending that I ever red.

Was interesting at first but gets repetitive and boring.

Its mainly written for a light read, so dont expect a plot with depth or any charcater development. The entire plot is catered to the fact that all the relevant characters are dull and cannot outsmart the psychopath MC. There are no ingenious plans or clever ideas, just dumb ideas by the prince and convenient counters by the black belly, all powerful MC.

This novel truly lives up to its status as one of comedy genre. The mc's antics are so hilarious that I had tears in my eyes. It's a good novel if you're in mood for having a good laugh really.

Simple and elegant. Delightfully devious. The MC skillfully manipulates the antagonists, turning their provocation into profit. She is living her best life; meanwhile my skin is cleared and my crops are watered with all this karma.

If you've ever read Youjo Senki you would know that Tanya always think she's the only normal one around and her logical is the only logic. Thats mentality of Tanya is what give her that crazy edge we all love, and I can say without a doubt that Rachel has the same mindset as in;everything must be logical to her whims. All in all its a beautiful novel.

This story is a masterpiece. You would think the premise was only good for a short story, as how many ways can she torture the prince from inside a cell? Yet instead it only gets better as every chapter she does something more outrageous and hilarious.
