“Do you wanna make a bet? — If You survive, live for me and die for me.”

Halka, a high school student who was summoned to another world, became a magician to survive.

Disguised as a man on the battlefield, she flew to a rage towards a knight who wanted to die and after giving him healing magic that chipped away at her own life, she collapsed.

When Halka woke up, the beautiful knight whom she had saved on the battlefield came to visit.

As proof of Halka winning the bet, the knight forced her to enter into a master-servant contract with him……!?

Please give this story a chance! The girl is an amazing girl and the knight seems nice. I want to see how our MC will make the ML feel like he's worth it. They are precious jewels T_T

3/5 - C Tier - It's worth a read if it's your type

I can't help but feel that the novel skipped what could have been one of the best parts. I'll call it the 'Pre War' arc, an arc that failed to exist. An arc that could have been used to build up the character as well as her strength and weaknesses. The prologue tells us just how she came to be a part of the war, but the arc could have shown us much better. The novel says why... more>> war broke out, but the arc could very well have said things better, showing the world. Even more, there could have been a point where the two characters meet in passing before the war.

The Pre War arc isn't exactly a necessity, but it could have been served well. Then again, after reading the novel more, I've realized the theme of the story wasn't what the arc would have entailed. A pet peeve.

The novel is too early in its run to fully judge, but there are few things to be noted.

(1) It's written and translated well. Although not descriptive in fights nor landscapes, everything else needs minimal imagination or brain straining to understand. Its vocabulary is fairly higher than most light novels on this site.

(2) Sometimes it says things, things that I suppose are meant to pull at one heartstring or another. However, they fall short in a multitude of ways. Sparsely, it says instead of shows and sometimes it shows when it could simply say. Other times we merely get a mention in passing, but much too small to care about.

(3) The prologue as a whole just works.

(4) For now, the story is quite laid back. The world seems to slowly open up through the eyes of Halka. However, there is a plot that is still in its initial beginning and I assume things will slowly change while unraveling.

(5) The MC is competent and has what could be described as a 'heart of silver'. She isn't averse to killing people, but she also sometimes gets overly dramatic over things that would normally not affect people that have lived through as much as she has.

(6) For the time being, every named character that has appeared has had a personality of their own. Some more than others, very few a gimmick.

As a whole, the novel is currently worth a read. <<less

i am obsessed with this story so far. It’s a good read. I wish there was more detail in the back story. Really like it and hoping for it to continue. The manga is good so far too.
