Palcemith. A kingdom blessed by the dragons.

I remembered this was the world in the game I had played in my previous world, [The Dragon and the Sacrificial Priestess]. But I had reincarnated as the Prime Minister Anderheim who would be led to ruin with his villainess daughter Julieta.

However, now that my memories have returned, I do not intend to give up that easily.

Making full use of my memories from my past life, with my daughter, let me show the capture targets how to turn the tables.

The story of a poisonous man who takes revenge on a bunch of "capture targets" and the heroine who broke his villainous daughter's heart. Along the way, he falls in love. Not what I expected, in a good way. Couldn't put it down and even got teary in places.

If you've ever read a story about a bunch of naive hero kids kicking ass and taking names—and sympathized with the experienced elders who keep admonishing them to stop doing s*upid things, this is the feel-good story for you. I didn't expect... more>> the plot to be so dark with the "normal Japanese guy transmigrates into an otome game" setting, but it works really well. Bulk of the drama lies in political intrigue and plotting, plotting, plotting. The world-building is pretty solid, the schemes not so much, and there are some plotholes that are never closed (still, tons of fun).

The romance takes several chapters to kick off, but when it does it's on fire. Crazy, wildly passionate R18 romance. There are two main couples, both of which can be defined as cunning politician uke x loyal dog seme. Both have HE. There are a couple of extra side characters with their own pairings (straight and bent), and they're not dull filler.

MC is mature, calculative, and comes off as completely heartless. But he's a daughter-con and he likes dogs — a true family man. His friendship with the second MC is wonderful. I won't spoil who ML is, but he's experienced, loyal, and straightforward.

The author is writing a sequel set six months after the end of this book's main events, which so far looks to be just as plot-driven. Be forewarned that the end of this book actually jumps to the end of all things. <<less

I geuss my hopes were set too high bc of the amount of positive reviews.

The start was pretty promising. A MC who's actually evil. But then it went al downhill. I mean I didn't expect that much from a face-slapping novel but it still made me sick.
-MC's daughter just became nice with one snap of the fingers. Wtf. She's the most illogic.
-The decisions of the character all change so fast and quickly like they're all NPCs. Everyone is 2D. As flat as a pancake.
-The "hero's" turn into... more>> villians also with the snap of a finger. There's no transition.
-The MC just decided to accept his past live memories like that as if he just transmigrated. That man has literally lived the life of a tr*sh and he just decides to staop that after gaining other memories? Shouldn't there be a clash between morals?
-MC and ML just got together like that? Way too fast. The moment you realise who the ML is was when they began f*cking. Boring. Also the ML's reason for liking the MC is weak af.
-The MC just fools everybody like that. Again boring. You also get no triumph from the MC. He's evil, yay, but calculating? No. I cringe so hard from his actions and the way he plays the victim. I get 0 triumph from his achievements. Only cringe.
-It isn't funny.

I can name a lot more bullsh*t that occured in the first 33 chapter, but maybe some illogical stuff will change later on so I won't include them. <<less

I absolutely LOVED this book, primarily for the smut that is tied together with a decent revenge plot. I thought of it was a plot-heavy, dark fantasy erotica, and boy was it satisfying in this role. Some people might not like it for this exact reason - this is a dark, fetish-heavy story, with amoral characters, where the "bad" guy wins (though the outcome seems quite good for almost everyone in my opinion).

The novel has beastialty, r*pe, manipulative relationships, almost in*est (no blood relation), and blackening of pretty much every... more>> character. As I said, perfect if you're in a certain mood, something to avoid if you want to read about clean, righteous characters.

I love how, while the main lead has everyone wrapped around his fingers, he is also taken by surprise multiple times throughout the story. The author doesn't try to make the main lead have the magical ability to predict everything, just because he'd played the game.

I also quite like how dark the story is, and the psychological manipulation that the main lead employs. If you think about it, the novel is rightfully dark - the basis of the kingdom it's set in is an ens*aved dragon being bled for his mana. The Kingdom proved its willing to take any measures for its own survival. I love how the main lead, like the kingdom, spins the truth until all the dark deeds seem righteous.


I also love how the most righteous knight, after learning about the main character's dark side, still loves him. Yet this doesn't mean the knight is bad, he still does his best to save people if he can.

Similarly, the priest is selfish and greedy, but it becomes apparent that those are traits beaten into him by his environment. It doesn't mean he's not done a lot of bad things, but it does make the love he finally finds even sweeter.

It's easy to love someone who is perfect. Too bad no one is perfect. True love is knowing all the bad in the other person and loving them anyways. And while I think the main lead and the priest started out as using their lovers, it doesn't mean they didn't really grow to love them in the end.

At first, I really wanted the dragon to be the male lead's lover, but I slowly came around to the knight, only to be really confused and given renewed hope in the epilogue. In my fantasy, the dragon was actually the main characters lover, he lived through the knight and helped the knight blacken and was able to finally experience some excitement by being with the main character. In the end, he goes wherever the main character goes and they continue to have new adventures together.

This book is definitely one that changes depending on where you end it. If you end it at 63, it's one about love and kicking away the previous heroine. If you stop at 64, it's a story about a heartwrenching love between two mismatched lovers. If you read to the end, it's about how revenge is a dish best served super duper cold, when everyone is gone and you're the last man standing.

The first 20 chapters are nice, but characters have totally collapsed by chapter 28.
It changes from "dad gets revenge for his daughter who was sentenced to death by her former fiancee, embracing evil", into cheap cp, an in*est ship (i think?) for julietxsigurd, and all of the blame being placed on "evil commoners", instead of the people in power, including the LITERAL PRINCE WHO CHEATED ON JULIET AND SACRIFICED HER.

I'll copy my comment from chapter 28 where I vented my issues with the cp that formed.
ugh f*cking gross

jolga should just prepare to die, you don't get to just walk back from everything he's done by... more>> saying " I want to feel your insides"

i remember now why I dropped this when I was mtl'ing, I guess I hoped that google translate had messed up. I knew it was coming, but was hoping that it was some other random who ended up in the cabin with anderheim.

i don't want to read ANY REDEMPTION ARCS for any of these people!! The entire reason I liked his character was: even though his daughter was cruel, he still supported her. He was willing to go do evil acts to "vindicate" them, ruin the prince's reputation, reveal that sigurd was the illegitimate child of jolga, and escape with juliet.

it seems like it's turning into anderheim x jolga, juliet x sigard, and malacia x lutora. Also, it looks like all of the blame is going to be placed onto melia and nasha - they're going to be killed or exiled, and vikram and the new prime minister are going to turn into bad rulers, and THAT'S going to be their punishment: finding out that if they had just stayed quiet, the kingdom would still be thriving under anderheim.

i hate this because it twists the original driving force of the beginning of the novel, that the prince's faction betrayed juliet, which is unforgivable for the Asbal family (no matter the reason) and turns it into "love-sick prince is fooled by s*upid, selfish commoners", where everyone else can be redeemed.

This novel ticks so many of my boxes for interesting bl novels. There would be a bl romance, but there is a larger story happening, with themes of revenge, and characters who are morally questionable.
less than 30 chapters in, and it has already dissolved into couples pairing up, and 2 people being the root of all evil within the group of antagonists. Sad times, truly <<less

{EDIT} Before reading I just wanted you (whoever is planning to read but is hesitant) to know that there is r*pe in this novel and I don't know why it isn't in the tags. So if that's a trigger to you then I'd suggest not to read.

My review:

Not worth reading. Good idea bad execution. Although I like when villains are evil just for the sake of being evil, this doesn't really work out here.

... more>>

Also, I feel bad for Nasha's sister (whatever her name is idk) despite all the sh*t she goes through the author still tries to portray her as the villain. Although she's a bit*h at first, remember that the MC was the one who ended up driving her crazy.



Also, the reveal of the ML was so unexpected & honestly? That was what made me drop the novel. The author could've gone with the dragon as the ML but nooo they chose the most boring unimportant person. It really doesn't make sense how the ML would sleep with the person that stole his wife like there was no chemistry at all!


Honestly I feel like the author posted the first 27 chapters, and just started making up sh*t along the way.

Also after reading the other reviews, I'm surprised other people like this sh*t of an excuse of a story. <<less

I've read a lot of very bad and questionable BL but very few reminded me so heavily of all the Japanese BL Manga from the 80s, like the (in) famous Zetsuai.

There are so many gay couples that, apart from one that you could see as in*est, no one in this novel seems to be straight, and none of the relationships feels organic, believable, or genuine.

The novel as a whole can be pretty much filed under (torture) p*rn, it's surely an artform to reach this level of atrocity.

Characters aren't questionable or... more>> complex, they are evil for evilness sake, neither is there any revenge like the story claimed to be about at the start, it looks more like the author wanted to put every possible s*xual perversion in it.

I'm baffled that this is even allowed, especially considering how detailed some of these things are.

I can think of countless great bad guys, Moriarty, Hannibal Lecter, Annie Wilkes, even Patrick Bateman, an absolute madman, is a better, more comprehensive and believable villain than any character in this novel.

It doesn't even seem like the author put any work into it, the story pretty much crawls from p*rn to p*rn, crime to crime, and that's all there is to it, characters only exist to give her the necessary cast to do so.

I was promised a villain but got "mass-produced Anime bad guy", MC has no real motivation for going so overboard with his "revenge", it's not even that he gets actual enjoyment out of it so I could see him as a criminally insane individual – he's obviously indifferent towards the suffering of his victims.

It makes everything pointless, shallow, and nonsensical, it's solely for sick personal reasons, either for the author or her targeted audience - sadly it doesn't have the quality that should come with that.

Characters change traits and sides faster than a model changes cloths during a runway show, the pure white knight ML turns into an accomplice in only a few chapters, falling as low as the MC, for the MC, for no reason at all.

The daughter who is one of the most vile people in the novel, is told to behave like a good girl and every single person is convinced asap, to make it worse, she actually changes in the blink of an eye and wholeheartedly acts like a saint with no transition whatsoever - her character setting collapsed like a poorly built house of cards.

No one in this story has any good reason for doing what they do, no one behaves even remotely believable, MC just has to do one thing that can be interpreted as good and everyone takes his side, despite his reputation being as bad as it could possibly be, every sane person would think of him scheming and acting, instead they all believe he was a good guy all along.

The cast shares one brain cell, a defective one.

Frankly, I have no idea what this novel is supposed to be, or why it even exists.

What I personally can't put up with, or want to support in any way, this includes giving a lenient review, is r*pe justified with "it happens to bad people".


Two of the "evil" women get sold to human traffickers, r*ped by beasts in front of an audience, and "hopefully" imp**gnated by said beast, so they can give birth to "puppies" and pay back their debts.


There are limits, this alone not only crosses them, it bulldozes them, sets them on fire, and sends the ashes to its parents.

It's sickening and seriously deranged.

Not that I expected anything else, but the "consensual" s*x isn't any better, I no longer have even an ounce of patience for female writers butchering gay s*x until it's unrecognisable, even more so when it, like in this case, would lead to severe injury or even death.

Don't write p*rn if you have no idea how it works, ask a gay guy to fact-check it, many of us would gladly do so.

To summarize it, it's despicable, borderline illegal torture p*rn, with a nonsensical story and abhorrent, badly crafted characters. <<less

It was ok at first but as many others already stated in their reviews... WTF so many plot holes, Since the story is mainly told from the MCs perspective it portrays him as this gary sue holy mother character but if you actual read it from an objective stand point pretty much everything he does is a bunch of black lotus scheming but whats sad is its not even good scheming cuz MC is very dumb and seems to get dumber as the story progresses... I didnt think that ... more>>

Jolga was the ML at all

. At most I thought he was going to be a second ML that had a crush on Anderheim only discovering his feeling later on... you know so the crush would even develop. Especially because of the dark history between them...


You know... how the original anderheim stole Jolga's fiancée and the fact that jolga slept with anderheims then bride and even had a kid...


But NOPE author just straight up made him the ML even know there are clearly no feelings between them, that felt very random and abrupt... even the side characters romance had more time and chemistry! Nasha indeed became very dumb all of a sudden like a stereotypical cannon fodder as well as the little sister melia...I feel a lil bad for Melia cuz in the end she just wanted to have a proper position to be able to marry the one she liked but in the end MC and the priest duped her into taking a cursed ring that gives behavioral effects & even let her take drugs. It seems anyone that came into contact with the MC had their IQ's erased and started acting like they were being mind controlled or something. Honestly I thought ML was going to be the dragon n then later if he got free he was going to be able to transform er something. I also don't like how Anderheims Daughter just did a complete 180 personality and attitude change... it was so abrupt its not believable... This novel was incredibly messy even the smut was bad... It had so much potential in the beginning... What a shame ┐ ( ̄ヘ ̄) ┌ <<less

A very unique otome-game-reversal.

The main character is the father, and surprisingly, he does remain a villain and does villainous things... to the end.

Other novels use the otome villain reversal to switch the places of the "villain" and the "heroine, " using very contrived means, to show how the villain was actually misunderstood or framed by the "evil" heroine. These reversals can be entertaining but lack creativity, ultimately leaving the entire promise of being a "villain" unfulfilled.

This story very early on establishes the MC as the villain. And he's an unrepentant... more>> one. He counterattacks the royal family, almost the entire country. Why? Because his daughter was insulted. He does the framing, the manipulating, the terrible acts of revenge, returning every "insult" with punishment way, WAY greater than what they deserved.


Normally, I'd be one of the reviewers admonishing the author for the excessive violence, r*pe, crazy shit, etc. but... the MC is the villain.

The MC is The Villain.

Think about it for a second. He's not a fluffy or misunderstood character. He is pure villain all the way through. And he does awful villainous things like ruin innocent children's lives for no reason other than collateral damage.


Just... keep in mind that he's a terrible villain, so don't give him any excuses either. The things he does are really really really bad.


His acts shouldn't be rationalized in any way (no matter what personality the heroine and her twin sister have, they didn't deserve those things.)

The innocent ill son of the heroine's family didn't deserve to be sold into s*avery / prostitution either.

And more.


That said, approach with an understanding that the narrator is biased and wrong. But it's a fun read anyway.


He even manages to successfully carry out the scheme for the end of the country... by causing calamities to befall it 2000 years later.


Although this is a great story, the pacing does suffer a bit. As other reviewers have mentioned, some of the foreshadowing is not very well done (such as for the reveal of the ML).


I did have an idea a few chapters before the reveal who the ML was going to be, but it was basically a guess because the plot was pretty weird regarding them and I'm still baffled how the ML fell for the MC so suddenly.


Translation is fantastic. <<less

I haven't been this entertained by an MC's calculations and plans for a while. It's so fun watching him lay traps for his enemies and seeing them fall hook line and sinker. Honestly, I loved the way he and his accomplices paint themselves as white lotuses - it had me cackling for hours. Despite this, the story does turn dark at some points, so not advised for the faint of heart.

The romance is surprisingly sweet, despite the web of lies he spins. If you're not well attuned to novel tropes... more>> the ML might surprise you at first. I had my suspicions from the start for the side couples too and I'm honestly pleasantly surprised. I loved seeing the relationships develop and I'm excited to read until the end. Thank you to the translators who do a wonderful job! <<less

Wow it's been long since I read Jap novels that I can say had a good story. MC here has a great mind, giving traps step by step and moving people on his command. You will not know who is the ML at the start. MC made a bet if ML's choice is satisfactory he will really accept him. ML didn't let him down:) there r other couples here. You will also get your heartache for Malachia the -shrine head. As you will know his story it really sad but... more>> as Malachia showed he didn't really felt it/he did not love anyone-it's part of surviving. It is good that he met someone who will truly love him:) there's a lil twist at the last chap/epilogue

Some spoiler on what happend to ML/MC after making the kingdom peaceful, when MC just want to spend his days until 55 (Asbal/his family curse-they will only live until that age)

He and ML just live on the cabin on forest unfortunately ML died first before MC cause of accident protecting children from a destroyed house& MC did died on his 55 yr leaning on ML's tombstone


As for several yrs maybe 700 after jullieta died (MC daughter) Passed this is what happend

MC got reincarnated to a child, he frequently visits thier tombstone and on his 10th bday he saw a magical beast/ a dog crying on the tombstone. We can see that is the reincarnation of Knight commander haha hopefully he will turn into a human in the future to really accompany MC for many yrs

Also the dragon who turned into a stone after Jullieta's death, cracked and lived again after MC visited him. And tadaaaa there comes their free travel living the kingdom in Snow (cause there's no dragon blessing anymore) yep &the kingdom got destroyed haha


Wow you will marvel how MC set up his plan. Good for happy endings on some couple. <<less

I'm blown away. The book was so dark that I even, I, who read all the reviews was shocked. It was a great short read especially for passing time.

The MC is really a villain. I thought it would be the typical whitewashing novel like those other otome game novels, but I was proven wrong. Though the MC gained the memories of his previous life, his personality remains unchanged. He is still a scum. And that is why this novel was pretty dark. There's mentions of r*pe, bestiality, mu*der, prostitution, etc.... more>> All of those bad stuff. Don't worry though, it doesn't happen to the MC. It was a pretty short novel but the ending was satisfying. I give this a 5/5 just because it was different from those other cliche novels. <<less

In the early chapters, I liked it so much that I went to read the MTL up till c50. There's a lot of face-slapping in this one, although I think it is wholly undeserved. The novel is very plot-orientated which is refreshing for the transmigration otome game genre. There's a few plot holes especially regarding Anderheim but that's easily overlooked because I like him so much. Anderheim is overpowered and sort of a grey area/evil character... more>>

so everything essentially goes his way.

The novel gets dark very quick and darker the further you go but it's entertaining and in my opinion, very self indulgent which is fine by me.

The translation is very well written and easy to read so I'm thankful for that. <<less

Even though it was a pain, I couldn't help but MTL this just so I know how this story ends.

It has a somewhat tragic ending but our MC does complete his revenge and the rest of the characters have happy endings. If you want to know what happens you can read the spoiler.

... more>>

Sigurd and Julieta ends up having kids and the dragon protects their house on the hill. The priest and the knight are lovey dovey but there's not much development after the circus incident. Then we have the crown prince and Nasha which boy oh boy they got absolutely wrecked.

Nasha ends up trying to rescue his sisters in the circus but in process of doing so gets r*ped by the dog and eventually, as queen, gives birth to a dog (beastman). The crown prince is devastated but he has the patience of a saint and just cries it out with his cousin (who he later marries).

Anerheim dies at 55 as he is destined to, but funnily enough Jorga dies before him because of an accident. The 2 reincarnate later on and guide the dragon to leave Palcemith which ends up contributing to the town's ruin. This happens 2000 years after the main storyline.


This story is very much revenge p*rn and Im happy that the protagonist is somewhat twisted. He is by no means a good person so if you're looking for a selfless protagonist this is not the place. He's somewhat true neutral dipping to neutral evil territory in character alignment and that's what I love about him.

I think the story establishes early on that the character is OP but I had hoped that the crown prince and his faction would at least put up a fight but from start to finish our MC's life is smooth sailing. But then again this is revenge p*rn so it does the job perfectly well. <<less

I hate this novel, I hate the author, and I hate the translator for digging this story up from whatever cesspool they found it in and giving it the light of day. And not having the guts to put the right tags on it.

The story starts of great, and then starts to go off into deranged territory. I won't put up spoiler walls, I don't have enough respect for the story to do that. I skipped a lot so I don't know if there was anything else messed up in... more>> this story, but these are the parts that made me sick.

The author has the sisters of the heroine publicly r*ped by a beast, and then has the gall to have them be imp**gnated by it. I don't think anyone villain or not should have to go through something like that.

Then the author then has a group of children r*ped. Why? Because. The author has this one side character convince said children to give up and allow themselves to *feel good*, because they have no choice.

I regret reading that far, I should have stopped when I started reading about the beast r*pe, but I just skipped past it because I didn't want to read it. I can't understand how degraded the minds of some of the other readers must be in order to give something like this more than 1 star. If I had the power to I would immediately make this thing disappear from the internet. <<less

I would rate this 2 but out of respect of how good the beginning of the story was delivered, I decided to up it to 3.

As mentioned, the beginning of the story was for me, written quite good and make you anticipate their future plan. However, what ruin this story is the romance of MC and the ending scheme.

... more>>

I'm sorry but it make 0 sense who MC's love interest it. Initially, I thought the romance is for her daughter and love interest, and the yaoi is for other main characters, BUT IT'S NOT.

Get this, his partner is the ex-lover of his first wife.

Reason? ML got seduced to the point of throwing away his morality because f*ck yeah MC is handsome person with great body. 👁️👄👁️

As for why MC seduced ML when he could do anything else? Cause sacrifice and he wanted to gamble his life with something important for the future (?)

Bruh, even one of the side character mention it was very s*upid, yet the author made no sense in trying to justify it. It felt like it was a self insert fanfic in a story.

Ok, so let's say the seducing is important and all but are you telling me a person could easily change their firm core personality because of s*x and "love"? If it had ended similarly to HHYL then fine alright, it still match their character personality. But here? Got laid -> turn to a dog.


It could have been executed better. And don't get me on the ending that we were waiting for. It was very hot tr*sh. There were numerous times he could screw them all up and ruined the country, and they let it slip by because we were expected that it was all for the ending. The ending tho


The country still survive and the crown prince is still the crown prince. They may have encounter struggles but still. And it made me question like so where's the resolution to destroy this country go? Oh so you mean after how many decades when all died? -.-


Honestly, if you came here for the plot and world building, I suggest you turn away or read the first chapters then jump at the end. The middle part is definitely not worth burning your eyes and occupying your mind. <<less

I got so conflicted about this novel. There are two points that make me drop the novel halfway.

  1. I got disappointed to my expectation in a family relationship, of father-daughter that should've been an interesting point of this novel.
  2. The Main CP, the MC and the ML, are really coming out of nowhere! There are 2 Characters who were hinted and have more potential to be the ML, but no, the author just suddenly give an ML who doesn't give any chemistry at all. I can't keep reading a romance BL when I disagreed at the main CP, can I?
The way it wrote about an antihero whose action was not justified, but a true villain, though we may like him due to his crafty and cleverness. Also, the way it use the... more>> premise of father and daughter, it got me hooked.

I expected a father and daughter moments, no, not in*est, but really considering that through out the time before the MC has abandoned his daughter, I want him to spent at least a little more times with his daughter. It was showed in the earlier chapters, and it makes me happy. However, as the chapter went on, it disappeared like a cotton candy submerged in the water, there's only a front saying without a true content, stating that MC loves his daughter.

This got me disappointed.

The villainous plots are amazing. At least that comfort me and I can turn a blind eye for the disappointment prior.

Even so, when I finally knew the ML or the seme of this novel, I got like ahhhhhh, disappointed level 100!


Whyyy??? I mean why the MC ended up with Jolga? there's no reason, no rhyme for their relationship to start. Like, Jolga just suddenly got enticed by the MC... somehow. I thought the ML would be either Malacia or the Dragon Khalis! They were partner in crimes, and are more relatable to the development of the story.


Really, this is the first time I actually didn't agree on a pairing in a novel. Lol

How could I read a novel with romance when the main CP was not what I expected?

Even so, giving it a low rating just because I got disappointed to the CP is petty.

So I will give this a full 4 stars based on another consideration above. <<less

I loved all the face slapping

The only downside was


finding out that Jolga died 10 years earlier, than when MC would have died of the Asbal curse. Literally broke my heart. It was so unexpected. I wanted them to live life together longer. 💔

And the epilogue didn't feel satisfying to me. Like Jolga reincarnated into a Gigandi magical beast. Guess it's beastiality from here on out? Smh I wanted to see their reincarnations interact, but whateves. I did love the fact that Kharis took both of them away from Palcemith and let it be screwed over. But I wonder if anyone else was reincarnated?

EDIT: AHHH right Gigandi males have a chance to become beastman and females are born beastman. So Jolga probs has a higher chance to turn into a beastman to reunite with MC

This story was disappointing. The relationships just happen because the author says so, there is really not built up. That being said I found myself caring a lot more about the side CPs as oppose to our main CP, which was just awfully written imo. Story gets really dark and there is a lot of unnecessary abuse of side characters so trigger warning for r*pe, bestiality, pedophilia, etc. Abuse is used to further the plot and not in a good or necessary way. Main character is really OP. While I... more>> don't hate that trope, I was expecting a bit of a struggle. <<less
