So this is a really interesting plot with a dark setting. The MC is executed and finds herself age 10 again, basically before she married that disgusting waste of space prince. There isn't much plot development in the first three chapters, with it just giving readers a recap on how the situation led up to her death and eventual time travel. From the summary alone readers can easily understand that this won't be the happiest ride to get on. And this is just a spoiler for anyone sensitive r*pe situations.... more>> It doesn't say it in the tags, but there will be r*pe scenes in the third three chapters, so if you absolutely hate novels with scenes like that I suggest you not read this.

And this is just a spoiler for anyone sensitive to r*pe situations.

It doesn't say it in the tags, but there will be r*pe scenes in the third three chapters, so if you absolutely hate novels with scenes like that I suggest you not read this.

[collapse]

Continuing on, the prince is extremely stupid and annoying. Despite "falling in love" with the classic Asian girl from another world (a.k.a. Our reality) he still marries his fiance from birth, the MC, as the second wife. Now, this is where things get complicated (not that it wasn't before)
Spoiler

He basically treats the MC like sh*t and forces her to take the work load of the Empress despite her not being the Empress (d*ck move). Whenever Gina (the girl from another world) cries he always interprets it as the MC's fault and punishes her by slapping her or physically assaulting her. Basically, he's an absolute d*ck who has done a lot of heinous crimes against the MC. (I hope he dies in a fire). So when the MC goes back in time, she does her very best to prepare for the future and get out of the ridiculous engagement. The problem is that she formed a trauma from her past experience with the prince and, now, whenever she is in close proximity to him she freezes up and can't verbally say anything. This gives the stupid prince the impression that she's arrogant and cold, leading him to hate her even more.

[collapse]

Quite frankly the entire situation is really stupid and I hope the MC gets out of the engagement with the prince and finds a real man who isn't an absolute moron. I do NOT want a reconciliation between the two because what the prince did in the previous life was unforgivable. I don't care if his "past crimes belonged to another him" and that he's technically "innocent of the crimes" he should suffer a hundred lifetimes for his stupid actions. Basically, I hope the prince burns in a fire and isn't the ML in this story.

As for advice on reading this novel, I find it interesting and I do recommend you try it and form your own opinions on the story. So far they haven't uploaded much with it only reaching one entire chapter and the start of a second chapter. If you don't really want to wait for a long time for this story to finish being translated, I wouldn't recommend reading this. <<less

Aristia is a interesting character. Unfortunately the author seems determined to pair her up with her future rapist and the person who ordered her death, while handwaving how much of a complete ass the ML has been.

LONG, DETAILED SPOILERS EXPLAINING WHY SHE ENDED UP WITH THE PRINCE

I know everyone is pissed that Tia ends up with Ruve after he raped her, killed her family, her unborn child, and her, but there's a reason for all that.

... more>>
Spoiler

So the background is, Ruve's father, the Emperor, has always been very cold and distant to him, raising him with harsh expectations and no love. The Emperor was actually in love with Tia's mom, Jeremiah. Keiran (Tia's dad) was engaged to be married with another woman (Karsein's mother actually) in a political marriage, but he also fell in love with Jeremiah.

Jeremiah was in love with Keiran, not the Emperor. The only person in the empire who can break off the official engagement between Keiran & Karsein's mom is the emperor, but obviously the emperor wants them to get married so he can hopefully marry Jeremiah. However, Keiran offers to swear an oath of absolute loyalty to the Emperor if he will give up on Jeremiah and allow Keiran to marry Jeremiah by breaking the official engagement.

The Emperor/King is actually a very just, wise man and he realizes he cannot put his own personal feelings ahead of the good of the Empire, so he gives up on his love for Jeremiah and breaks off Keiran's engagement so Keiran can marry Jeremiah and then Jeremiah gives birth to Tia.

Just some background, I'm probably mixing them up (?) but Tia's family is part of the "Aristocrats" (I think) which mainly support the Emperor and on the other side you have the "nobles" or something, which oppose the emperor. The emperor is actually not as powerful as you think, as the noble faction have basically 50% the power of the empire and the Emperor+aristocrats the other 50%. The emperor needs to ensure the aristocrat faction that supports him is unified (there's in-fighting inside both factions), which is why he wanted Keiran to swear an oath of absolute loyalty to him.

Tia has her father's coloring, but looks exactly like Jeremiah, which is why the Emperor (who was in love with Jeremiah), loves her so much and treats her like a daughter. He gives her all the love he has and gives zero love to his son. The reason is because in order to survive as Emperor, you have to be cold, logical, rational, and strong-willed. He does love prince Ruve a lot, but was perhaps misguided.

The aristocrats all have harsh expectations on Ruve to grow up to be intelligent, rational, capable so everyone is always telling him "You need to stop whining, you need to be better". On the other hand, Tia is naturally gifted and smart and everyone always says "Tia is so amazing, we love her so much!" Imagine being a young boy, growing up and seeing how everyone, including your own father, loves Tia so much and nobody gives any love to you at all. Of course he grows to resent Tia.

Only two people ever showed "love" to Ruve, which is Jeremiah and Duke Jenna/Zena (or whatever his name is, the main villain). However, when Jeremiah gets assassinated later on, she happily gives up her life to protect Tia, while ignoring Ruve (who was also in the same room), so Ruve feels betrayed that Jeremiah didn't care about him at all, which I mean, of course this woman will protect her biological daughter over the unrelated prince. Like Jeremiah rushes to Tia and covers Tia with her body, while leaving Ruve to fend for himself against the assassins.

After this, Duke Zena is the only person who shows any "love" to Prince Ruve, which is why he believes anything Zena says. Zena basically tells Ruve that Tia is an unfeeling, incredibly manipulative and intelligent woman who is out to marry him so she can get more power for her household and the aristocrat faction. Thus Ruve hates Tia even more.

Tia, on the other hand, despite being loved by everyone, also has really harsh expectations put on her and she feels she cannot show any weakness, that she must prove herself to be a capable Empress. She actually does have trouble expressing her feelings which is why Zena's whole "she has no feelings" rings true to Ruve. However, through her actions, Tia proves that she cares deeply about the Empire, her household, and even Ruve.

However, one day Ji-Eun magically appears and is denoted the "child of god" and the one who is supposed to be empress. Ji-Eun is basically an average Korean 16 year old girl. Imagine getting thrown into a game of thrones setting at 16. She lost her friends and family and is completely alone in the new world. Zena tells Ji-Eun about all the s**t that goes down and basically says "If you don't manage to get Prince Ruve's support, you will probably get raped and killed cause the politics here are deadly". He also tells Ji-Eun "Ruve is desperate for love, so just be happy and smiling and tell him you love him". So Ji-Eun, terrified for her life, does everything she can to seduce Ruve and he falls in love with her because she is "honest" with her feelings and "innocent".

Thus Tia becomes the "abandoned empress" and Ji-Eun the actual empress. Ji-Eun now gets to enjoy a life of luxury and wealth, while Tia does all the official Empress duties as the "Queen". The Empire is thriving and everyone thinks "Life is so good and our Empress is such a wonderful, kind, happy person, while that b***h Tia thinks she's so much better than everyone. She always acting so stuck up."

NOW THE IMPORTANT PART. Zena's plans are in motion and he wants even more power, so he begins to poison Ruve with a psychotropic drug that makes him angry, bipolar, and schizophrenic. He also feeds lies to Ruve and Ruve hears the people+staff... basically everyone saying how Tia is a total smug, superior b***h who is power-hungry and pissed off her plans to get power failed cause Ji-Eun showed up. There are rumors that Tia wants to assassinate Ji-Eun so she can get back the place of Empress.

Ruve confronts Tia and wants her to be honest with him, but she basically thinks "I'm scared of you, I cannot be honest with you" and tells him "you won't believe me anyway" and Ruve goes "So you're basically admitting all the rumors about you are true." Now don't forget he is drugged with those psychotropic drugs, so that's when he rapes her. And of course, he later pushes her and causes her to miscarry.

He does feel extremely guilty about this, but when Tia finds out she miscarried and can no longer have children (her womb is damaged), she laughs crazily in front of many maids/servants, basically cursing god (Vita) for her life. Zena and the palace staff report that Tia laughed like crazy, saying "I'm so glad I don't have to give birth to that f**ker's baby. Thank god I had a miscarriage". Of course Ruve gets pissed off at this and thinks what kind of monster is happy her baby died. Thus Tia just confirmed all the rumors about her.

Tia's father, Keiran, understands Tia is unhappy and miserable and begs Ruve to take Tia away. He wants to fake her death and have her live quietly in another country. At the same time, Zena fakes an assassination on Ji-Eun and blames Tia for it, but Ruve has some moments of clarity. He thinks "If Tia wants to escape to another country, why would she risk killing Ji-Eun? The only point in killing Ji-Eun is if Tia wants to stay and become Empress."

I'm kind of confused too with the novel/webtoon, but I think there's not enough evidence to tie Tia + Keiran + her house into the assassination attempt, but Ruve & Tia fight and he lies to her that he killed her father, because he wants to hurt her in retaliation for her laughing that their unborn child died. Tia, who was also poisoned by Duke Zena, goes crazy upon hearing her father was killed and stabs Ruve. Of course, now there is enough evidence that Tia committed treason, attempted assassination of the Emperor, so Zena and everyone votes to have her executed. Ruve actually votes against them but is outvoted. He only wants Tia banished to another country. He was actually trying to grant her wish to escape the palace. He was setting her free.

However, Tia is executed and dies thinking Ruve had killed her father and sentenced her to death when none of that actually happened.

Anyway, now that Tia is gone, Ruve continues to get crazier after being poisoned with the drugs, Zena causes unrest in the Empire by continuing to gather more power, and Ji-Eun must now do all of Tia's duties. How can you expect a modern 16-21 year old girl to run an Empire? Ji-Eun makes a ton of dumb decisions and that with all the other crazy going on means the Empire goes to ruins.

All the people that used to praise Ji-Eun and say "Tia is so smug and unlikable" suddenly turn on Ji-Eun. Suddenly everyone says "Ji-Eun is such a dumbass. How can anyone be so dumb? She's probably faking dumb and is actually evil and wants us to all suffer and die. Nobody can be THAT dumb. When Tia was Queen, she was so smart and the Empire was thriving." Basically everyone regretted trashing Tia and wished she were still alive and the Empress.

Ji-Eun is devastated that suddenly everyone turned on her and one day Ruve finally tells her, after another dumb decision, "Why are you so dumb? I wish you had died and Tia was Empress". Ji-Eun also gets pregnant at this time and feels so alone and powerless and worried about the future of her baby.

Ruve has figured out at this time that Zena is not his "father figure" but was actually poisoning him and that everything about Tia was a lie. For instance, Ji-Eun keeps saying she loves him but after 5 (?) years together, has no idea what his favorite/disliked foods are, whereas Tia figured it out within a couple of weeks. Tia also took so much pressure off him by handling many Empire matters for him, whereas Ji-Eun actually stresses him out with more work with her dumb decisions. He realizes Tia loved him and showed it through actions, just not words, while Ji-Eun's words were empty and hollow and betrayed by her careless actions.

Ruve also realizes that he is dead soon, especially if Ji-Eun gives birth to a son, since Zena will kill him and then assume the role of "regent", while raising and brainwashing the baby who will one day inherit the empire. Ruve has a way to save his life by killing Ji-Eun and he considers it, but realizes that killing her + the unborn child will be doing the same thing to her what he did to Tia, something he regrets with all his heart. And in case you forgot, he actually wanted to save her life and send her away from the empire, just Zena + the nobles were too powerful and ordered Tia executed. I think the webtoon actually portrayed this badly since they showed Ruve kind of with a superior/unfeeling look on his face while she was executed, when in reality he wanted to spare her.

So he instead realizes he's lost and Zena will now take over the Empire, so he gives up on being Emperor and tries to run away, but Zena gets wind of this and sends soldiers to assassinate Ruve. Ruve falls down a cliff and as he lies dying, he gazes up at the moon (the king is the sun and the moon symbolizes the queen/empress) and he thinks the moon is Tia and basically begs her for forgiveness and thinks death is not so bad since he will be reunited with Tia.

This is all background and Tia gets sent back in time, of course.

SECOND TIMELINE

This time, Tia realizes she should be more "open" with her feelings and she's not actually alone, there's so many people who support her and love her. Don't forget she also thought her father was somewhat "unfeeling" but realized he risked his life and household to make her happy. He begged Ruve to fake her death and let her live quietly in another country, showing how much he actually loved her.

Thus 2nd timeline (2TL) Tia shows her emotions more and Ruve, seeing Tia showing all these emotions and laughing with Karsein + Allen, realizes she is not unfeeling and cold. Also, don't forget that Tia inheriting her household makes it impossible for her to become Empress (due to some rules and stuff), so how can Tia be power-hungry and out to manipulate him, Ruve, when she appears to want to break off the engagement? Thus 2nd timeline (2TL) Ruve realizes a lot of what Zena said about Tia was a lie.

Oh, and BIG SPOILER ABOUT ALLEN, but Allen, despite being much more capable than his brother, is passed over in favor of his older brother. Allen wants to inherit the household, thinking he is better than his brother, but the parents think it's unfair, since the oldest son is supposed to inherit. Even though Allen is definitely better, the oldest son is capable still. Allen thinks this means his parents don't really love him and he gets driven to Zena's side as a spy.

Allen also is sociopathic and possessive of Tia. At one point, he considers killing her father, Keiran, because Keiran sees through Allen's true nature. He also kind of has an erot*c daydream about strangling Tia to death so she will always be his. His other plot is to kidnap Tia and keep her locked up in a secret house forever, so she will belong to him only.

However, he does have a moment of clarity where he realizes he is f**ked up in the head and he double-crosses Zena to the current Emperor, who sends Allen away to another country, but thanks him for realizing the error of his ways.

So Allen did love Tia enough to realize his love for her was messed up and psychotic. He willingly went away to protect Tia from himself.

Ruve falls in love with Tia because of how expressive and lively she is in the second timeline, and also because, if you've forgotten, he loved Jeremiah (Tia's mother) because only Jeremiah + Zena ever showed him love +affection, and Tia resembles Jeremiah.

After Ruve died in the first timeline, Ji-Eun gives birth to a girl, who cannot inherit the throne and with Ruve dead, it means the royal lineage is broken. Zena can now over take the throne legally, so he decides to kill Ji-Eun and stabs her and her baby daughter to death.

Ji-Eun b****es to god/Vita about how unfair her life was and Vita (God) offers Ji-Eun a choice. She can send Ji-Eun back to modern day Korea with her memories completely erased, or she can send Ji-Eun back to the moment she arrived in the Abandoned Empress world with her memories intact.

Ji-Eun does miss Korea + her family, but don't forget this choice came literally 10 seconds after she got stabbed in the stomach by her "friend" Duke Zena. Ji-Eun hates Ruve for abandoning her ("I wish Tia was alive and you were dead instead"), hates Zena for manipulating and killing her, and most of all, hates that Tia took everyone's love even in death. Remember, after the Empire started to crumble, the people and Ruve all said they regretted how they treated Tia and wished she was the Empress and said Ji-Eun was dumb trash.

Ji-Eun also thinks if she runs away to Korea with her memories erased, it means admitting to herself she lost to Tia, that she is and will always be inferior to Tia. She thinks if she actually works hard she can match Tia and become a powerful empress who can take revenge on Prince Ruve + Duke Zena. Thus in her anger and pride, she chooses to relive a second life instead of going back home to Korea.

When Ji-Eun arrives this time, she does everything she can to seduce Ruve because she wants to make him fall in love with her so she can then toss him aside and destroy him, the Empire, and Zena.

But at this point Ruve only loves Tia and none of Ji-Eun's attempts work. So she instead asks Zena to adopt her, so she can have the aristocrat backing and become Empress. Her second goal, of course, is to spy on Zena and find out his weakness so she can kill him.

Zena though is smart and while he wants to manipulate Ji-Eun and make her Empress, doesn't trust Ji-Eun at all. By the way, Ji-Eun has a special power where she can heal flowers/plants, just not humans. Tia's power from God is that she can hear Vita's voice/holy messages, just like some priests can.

Anyway, yada yada, s**t happens and then one day Tia gets stabbed and almost dies, but Ji-Eun who finally realizes that neither Ruve nor Tia are the true villains, begs God to save Tia's life and Vita/God tells Ji-Eun she can save Tia by giving up her magical powers and losing her status as a "child of god". Ji-Eun willingly does so and Tia's life is saved.

Ji-Eun works with Ruve + Tia to bring down Zena and Zena does get judged for his crimes and his whole household is beheaded and killed.

Ji-Eun saw herself as a protagonist in an isekai novel, thinking that she was the main character and Tia was the villainess out to steal her position and love, but realized in the end, she was actually the villainess. This is why she saves Tia's life, because she wants redemption. She also regrets so much not taking Vita/God's offer to go back to Korea with her memories erased.

Ruve and everyone else in the Empire wants to kill Ji-Eun, since she is a co-conspirator and Zena's adopted daughter, but Tia begs them for mercy, however, Tia is overruled, just like first timeline Ruve was overruled when he asked for clemency for Tia.

Tia visits Ji-Eun in prison and asks why Ji-Eun hated her so much and why Ji-Eun decided to save her. Ji-Eun tells Tia "I was supposed to be the protagonist, I was supposed to be loved and have a happily ever after, but even in death you stole that from me. Ruve & the people told me they loved you more and that I was useless trash. You have everything that I don't have."

At this point Tia gets pissed and goes "WTF. Ruve + the people executed me and treated me like trash for years. How can you be jealous of me?"

At this point Ji-Eun goes "Be honest, you looked down on me."

And Tia does admit she looked down on Ji-Eun as being dumb and incompetent and was upset that Ruve + the people loved her despite Ji-Eun being a dumb Empress.

The girls both find it ironic they envied the other.

At this point Tia gives Ji-Eun an option, which Ruve agreed to. She gives Ji-Eun two bottles, one with real poison and one with a Romeo+Juliet poison that will fake death. Ji-Eun can choose to die or she can be smuggled away to another country and live there quietly for the rest of her life.

Tia tells Ji-Eun "this is your choice" and then walks away and you never find out what choice Ji-Eun chose but in side stories I think it says she chose to live.

Tia & Ruve get married and have 2 daughters + 1 son. The daughter inherits the Marquess household while the son becomes the greatest Emperor in the history of the Empire.

Vita had originally said the "blessed child of god" would bring eternal happiness to the empire, but in the first timeline, the empire crumbled due to Zena and everyone (including Zena) lost. In the second timeline, they all lived happily ever after, except Zena + ji-Eun. Since Ji-Eun gave up her powers, Tia is the only "child of god" in the second timeline. Also, Ji-Eun eventually comes to peace with her life and lives a quiet, but fulfilled life as an ordinary person in another country. Kind of bittersweet she never got to see her Korea family again, but that was her choice and she has to live with it.

The ML can repent his whole entire second life and I will never, ever forgive him for what he did to the protagonist during their first life.

A lot of people seemed to have read spoilers first or after reading the first 2 chapters, because they make it seem as though this story is a shallow one where the MC is an idiot and the ML is a jerk both in the first and second lives.

This is not a shallow story. Although the MC does end up with the ML who treated her badly, it's after a lot of plot and a looong time. For reference, the MC has PTSD and is terrified of the ML in... more>> the beginning, and for the most part lives her life trying to avoid him and is happy with other people she has become friends with. (At 60 manwha chapters she's interacted with him like 5 times, all of which were 1-2 chapters) The PTSD slowly changes, and from what I've heard the ML learns about what he did and there is an entire arc of him regretting, plus the psychology of the ML is pretty interesting and complex and while it doesn't really excuse him for what he did, he also wasn't a jerk in his first life just because he was spoiled or born like that.

Granted, this I don't know Korean and I haven't read the novel, and have only read up to the translated manwha, which as of this review is ~Ch. 60, but I have gotten spoilers from other people.

Plot 9/10 - The base plot isn't overwhelmingly outstanding or anything, as I have seen the "my first life was terrible, and since I have a second chance I'll make it better." But there is a lot of other things that make it interesting and while super complex, is intricate enough to keep the reader interested and is realistic

Spoiler
  • The MC has PTSD after her first life and is frozen in fear first time meeting the prince in 2nd life, which I don't see often
  • The first person the MC talks about her first life to doesn't believe her, which is heartbreaking for the readers but realistically makes sense. Additionally, the problem isn't solved immediately and the two reconcile slowly, over a matter of years and a lot of letter exchanging
  • MC struggles with herself, as she aims to become the heiress of her family and become a swordswoman. However, she has a weak body, and is constantly pushing herself to learn the sword quickly as time feels short to her and various events with the prince that she is now scared of are approaching
  • Other events that I can't describe in detail as they have yet to appear in the manhwa and I've only heard spoilers, but there is a lot of plot
[collapse]

Character development: 10/10 There are characters beyond the scope of the MC and ML, and all of the characters are incredibly well developed. Throughout the story hints are given as the character backgrounds, and you can understand how a character grew up and why they are the people they are now. The spoiler explains the psychology of 3 male characters, including the ML, who appear frequently and are important to the story.

Spoiler
  • Ruve, the ML. (First life) He has always been compared to the MC since childhood and dislikes her to a small extent because of this. He later grows to hate her because her priority is responsibility and she never acts selfish, so that she seems cold and inhuman. Another major fact is that Ruve was extremely close to MC's mother and was there when she died. The MC doesn't really remember her mother, but Ruve thought she just didn't care. Basically, he thought she was cold, unfeeling, inhumane, and even ruthless. (Second life) because MC has PTSD, she is terrified stiff when she meets Ruve and because of this, the initial dislike due to comparison turns to curiosity, and you can see how he changes from first meeting to other meetings, and how he cares about her more as time goes on.
  • Allendis (my personal fave) - He is also a noble kid and approaches MC first, and is kind, cute, sweet, funny, and really caring to Tia. He cherishes her a lot. However, it is implied that this is only towards her, and that to others he is cold, or even aggressive. Hints show that Allendis grew up in a bad environment, where his father considered him a tool and typically disregarded him, and his mother cared more about his brother. It can be assumed that as a child, he tried hard to get his parents attention, including misbehaving, and now has a cynical view. The MC is the first who genuinely cares about him and now is his emotional base, and the amount he cares for her can easily become dangerous. (The MC is not a Mary Sue though)
  • Carsein - he meets her later on, and is a cheerful, pure boy who is a bit spoiled. Their first meeting is cute, but he treats her badly after realizing she is Ruve's fiance. They become friends later though, and she makes him less spoiled, I guess I'd say? And teases him a lot. His background isn't nearly as complex, but definitely shows how people grow up depending on their environment. He is the 2nd son of a loving noble family, hence why he is a bit spoiled and is probably cheerful partly to the fact that it is a family of knights so he does sports and may be friends with various knights. It's not a politics heavy family, so he grows up to be more honest.

Please give the story a chance whether it's the novel or manhwa because it is really interesting and well-written, and time is taken to develop the story and characters. <<less

The best novel that went and sweep, everything that had been done to the heroine, under the rug. Seriouly, the very f*cking best novel that exist. The manhwa had a chapter longer than the novel and at first it was entertaining before someone actually spoiled the ending pair (which make this a whole lot more enjoyable). It was your very best cliché ending folks! ;) Pretty sure ya know what I mean.

Annnnnnd the best of all, like I said previously, they sweep every damnable thing that happened to the... more>> heroine... Somewhere one earth, I guess? Trying to justify it happened in the past, the author did. And tryin so hard to make the ML likeable after those very much like a damn gentlemanly thing he did to the heroine! :D

Whew, tough novel this one is! There's is only one so far that is a very much normal compared to the other 3 target this author showed. Honest to lord, there is one!

So, to those who wanna read this, proceed at your own risk because, whew, this piss me off more than... (no words could describe it). Though, I could assure YOU that ya would be having a blast with ya smartphone or laptop whole reading this ;) Honest! (Though ya wallet gonna suffer afterward). <<less

To be fair, I don't think most of the reviewers on here went far besides chapter one. It's uncomfortable and perhaps misleading, especially since there is only one chapter available on here. Luckily for me, I came across the webtoon by chance. And it's pretty good.

The protagonist does not stick with the prince. In fact, from what I seen she has difficulty associating with him and want to stay uninvolved with him as much as possible. Instead, she creates a new path for herself to become the next heir of her noble family-- as a knight. There seems to be a collection of bachelors that will chase after her of their young prepubescent ages.

Furthermore, there seems to be a large focus on her relationship with her father, now that she understands in the life prior that he was undoubtly a caring man.

She has a classic sob story that luckily for her-- won't happen again.

I would def read past a certain amount of chapter to see what it is fully capable of.

After all that the MC had been through, the author goes and pushes the least favorite ship, MC and Prince, together. Why give the MC a second rerun of her life when everything's gonna end up the same way. It's absolutely ridiculous! Like for godsake, he raped her, killed her unborn baby, humiliated her, and killed her in the first life. Don't give that BS excuse saying, "Oh it's gonna be different since this is a different life." He hated her freaking guts since day one. Another excuse that people use is, him not having a mother and his father not caring about him, also everyone around him always praising MC. That doesn't give him the right nor justify all the f*cked up sh*t he did to her. Dude's a psychopath. The author's seriously messed up to put her together with her former rapist. I was hoping for her to become the knight she dreamt of being in the story, but I guess that ain't happening.

[collapse]

All the plot, development, characters wasted.

Don't read this unless you want to waste your time.

I had really liked this at first, but after I found out the ending...I'm gonna have to say nah. 10/10 at the beginning, but 1/10 at the end. <<less

Just finished chapter 53 in manhwa and I am crying here. I think I understood how powerless is she and how difficult for her to avoid her fate.

With that kind of past, I think everyone will get broken like that. She is really strong and determined.

The story is going pretty well. There are some mysteries about her past and his mother. I am really curious about it.

The story is a waste of time if you're looking for a story where the character has a better second chance at life and fully utilizes their first life knowledge and skills.

She isn't completely dumb but she is, in my opinion, as useless naive and emotion-driven as her first life. She learned nothing and even when she kept rejecting to be the empress, it never felt like a firm stand on her part. Her character is wishy washy without depth. The emperor was an as*hole in her first life but... more>> suddenly isn't in her second one (?)

Take my advice and don't read this unless you want to torture yourself. Not worth it <<less

1 the Manhua was good at the beginning, some people says that the characters are well developed but I guess not really Couse I wanted them to be more honest yet nothing happened, the MC had suffered from the prince, (someone said :Arisitia was supposed to marry the crown prince of the kingdom. However, due to the appearance of a mysterious girl whom where she came from is a mystery, and her supposed to be husband married the mysterious girl instead)

Let's be frank here the story is a... more>> ##### wasting of time and energy.. If the MC wasn't suppose to marry him then why did he treated her badly way he made her kneel down and kiss his let to save her father who already been executed.. why did he let his second wife to bully her.. she was blind Cos if love.. but in the second Life she should me more aware of it.. she should not love him and never forgive him.. I'm putting myself in her place.. I would've killed him, but the author have wasted all this feeling all this anger.. I don't give a shot about his reasons.. Cos the MC was doing all the paperwork in her past life she looked proud of herself but she was just shy none understand her.. now she has lot of people around yet she end up with the f###king prince.. he is nothing but a trash.. a trash... I hate it.. really hate it. Those who support the prince go Bach and read the first chapters.. his arrogant attitude.. and hateful character.. if she was a bad person who treated people cruelly.. I would understand but... Whatever.. <<less

So. With such a short translation of the novel, people may no understand it very clearly. I you can, I suggest you read the Manhwa (If you haven't) to know more. I'm pretty sure that the English Translation of the Manhwa has gone a bit further now?

So, a small summary of me maybe this:

Arisitia was supposed to marry the crown prince of the kingdom. However, due to the appearance of a mysterious girl whom where she came from is a mystery, and her supposed to be husband married the mysterious girl instead.

... more>> After a series of misunderstandings, tragic events and abuse happening to Arisitia, she was sentenced to death for attempting murder on the Emperor (That dickass you guys can call, but he's my bae). After being excecuted, Arisitia wakes up another time to find out that she has traversed back in time to when she was young. After setting on a trip to a sacred place, she finds out vaguely the reason she's been reborn. From that on, she declared to herself that she would become stronger and to not mingle with the royalty. But it seems like she can't bring herself to hate the Prince.

For me, this was quite a nice story. I loved the interactions between Tia and her beloved father! Her interactions with other people was nice to see as well. The Prince may be a dickass, sucker or a slag you may call, but he's actually my favorite male character in this Novel/Manhwa. Reasons include:

  • I'm a sucker for blue haired male characters, damn it.
  • His growth as a character, he grew up to actually cares for Tia,
    Spoiler

    heck he even calls people when Tia had a mental breakdown (The reason was because of fear of the said guy), though that only appears in the raw Manhwa]

I tried reading raw one but couldn't make sense of it. Though the story seems to take her back to the time when her father was still alive and she was still young. She had no clue as to why she time traveled back. Also the story here gives us a over view of how things first started but she doesn't go into details on who caused it so far besides the jerk that she liked that was the king.

I really liked the manhwa so to know who MC ends up with I read the spoilers. To be honest, if she really ends up with that scumbag emperor, it's really not worth continuing with the manhwa or novel.

The blue haired scumbag is a lot different in both the lives which I don't understand how? In the second life, he is more intuitive and knew MC's mother too, where the hell was that understanding in the first life. It's like author whitewashed and changed scumbag's character completely in the second... more>> life.

Also, I didn't get someone being 'god's favourite '. What BS!!! If she was dated with the scumbag, then let it be that way, MC was anyway trying to create her own destiny away from the royals and scumbag and his idiotic 'the one's. <<less
