The Tyrant Won’t Let Me Go


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

One day after I endured the hellish days of being a nameless extra that was abandoned by my parents, the people who attacked the orphanage took me to the Imperial Palace.

“Every day, at least ten minutes or more hold the prince’s hand, but on the days of classes, please hold at least twenty minutes.”

Then a man called the Emperor suddenly sees me and asks me to hold the hand of a prince who would grow up as a cruel tyrant in the future.

I thought I would maintain a thorough business-like relationship with the Crown Prince in order to prevent the death of the tyrant who was struggling in war.

“Your Majesty, I will retire in 3 years”


The teacup in Cedric’s hand shattered, unable to withstand the terrifying grip.

“Yes, Cie? I’m sorry, but I didn’t hear that well.”

It seems like this crazy tyrant has no intention of letting me go

“The doctor said that it was not enough to hold hands anymore.”

What? It could happen, but why are you in my bed?

“He said that we should spend a night together.”

Hey! Your Majesty, didn’t the doctor say that I just need to hold your hand?

It is like many other cliche reincarnation novels but with characters that are actually likable.

If you like the obsessed tyrant (slightly yandere) chasing after a reluctant FL you’ll like this one.

It has a good balance between fluff and fights/political stuff. But there are some weird skips in the novel, like at the time the FL first kills a magical beast (or something like that).

The writing is nothing amazing, at least not with the current quality of translation which seems to be edited MTL. Not the worst translation I’ve ever... more>> read but also not the best. <<less

I really, really wanted to read this because the prologue was interesting, but I can't take it anymore.

The childhood arc is extremely disappointing. It feels like the author had a bunch of ideas, some of which contradict or don't play off of each other well, but decided to just force them all in anyway.

Firstly is how MC is treated. She's supposed to be 12, and from how she's treated we can assume this is a world where 12yo are children (unlike other worlds where they're essentially small adults). It makes sense for her to act like an adult since she technically is one, but it makes less sense that everyone outside the orphanage treats her like one too. The King offers her a job instead of adopting her or taking her in as a maid, the knight/tutor (?) teaching the prince treats her like a rival instead of an annoying brat, etc. And speaking of that guy, why is the scene in c12 exactly like a high school villainess bullying the heroine scene? This is a grown ass man with his own life and job, and you expect me to believe it's not OOC for him to decide to chase out a lil brat because she made the prince not like him anymore?


While reading, I really couldn't shake off the feeling that I was reading a fanfic by one of my classmates back in high school. You know the type, MC is young but treated the same as all the adults, and the adults somehow all think like teenagers (usually including a reasonable old man who somehow doesn't think it's weird and illegal to be in a serious relationship with a 15yo). This kind of thing may be fun to read for teenagers and younger, but for older folk like me you may just find it exhausting.

There's too many plot holes to enjoy as a serious read, and it's not entertaining enough for a light read. <<less

The translations are good and the plot is really interesting. I think it has its own flavor and uniqueness from other reincarnation novels and the characters are lovable.

- I love the father emperor and this is probably the first novel I've read wherein ministers/advisers do not oppose the ML's love for the FL.. Like finally, they see how good and beneficial Ciel is for Cedric and support their new emperor's love life.

- Cedric's love/obsession for Ciel is felt and manifested early on. But I actually find it adorable and amusing.

- hoping I wouldn't get frustrated with the FL trying to leave ML due to her fear of the original story, because girl has been with him for more than 5 years and the story has been completely different from the start.


So far, the story isn't too heavy nor scary--since the ML is clearly very much in love (yanderish) with FL.

It's an enjoyable read and the childhood years are not overly long. <<less

Pretty cute, well written-- the bits foreshadowing how this kid turns into a tyrant are funny
