Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Connie, the daughter to a Viscount whose only value is her honesty, and Scarlet Castiel, the most reviled villainess of the era who was sentenced to death ten years ago. When the two people who were never supposed to meet encountered one another at a night party, the story that should have ended with Scarlet’s death began anew.

Although their relationship only began out of mutual interest, they soon became true partners in an effort to unravel the mysteries of a grand conspiracy borne out of the past, that still has a vicious grip on the present.

The Holy Grail of Eris is a breath of fresh air in this world dominated by reincarnation otome games cliche

The story begins with the "I was framed for a crime and my fiancee breaks the engagement" trope. What follows is anything but: the villainess possesses the clumsy heroine and unleash the full power of her villainy.

For numerous "villainess" stories, the villainess is the heroine, thus she needs to be kind. This means we never get to see what an educated, high society "villainess" is actually capable of, but we do... more>> in this novel! They say that all it takes to topple a realm is a single woman, here we see the alluring charm of a seductress in action, not in physical shape but in how she carries herself: her movements, her intonation, her choice of words, all in the body of a meek, flat chested girl that would lend no help in supplying any charm

And there's no prophecy or premonition! Indeed, in an ironic twist to the usual twist, there's no information to go on, no flag to crush, no event to keep an eye on! Everyone does their best to keep up with what's happening around them, and I have to say that the intrigue happening around them is truly gripping.

A lot of novels push a lot of exposition in one go in an attempt to build the world. This novel does it by way of character perspectives. You don't see an exposition of how dangerous someone is, you know they're dangerous because you see what they did from the perspective of their victim or a witness. It's majestic! I want to know more!

Do give this novel a try. Ignore the shallow romance, the mystery is where it's at <<less
