The Tyrant’s Beloved Doll


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

Her brother, who was the one who caused a coup d’etat, had sliced her throat. After she returned to the time before she died, she decided that she would somehow tame him and survive!


Did she tame him too much?


“Brother, why don’t you get married?”

There was no reply from him, instead the glass that he held popped and cracked.

“Oh no! You’re bleeding.”

“Why should I get married?”


“I already have you.”

Why should you get married, you say? You have to get the Empress so I can leave this castle! Sezh laughed strangely.


At that moment, she stumbled and Raytan pulled her body into his arms. His red eyes started to gleam suggestively while looking down at Sezh who was trapped in his arms.

“You know we are not real siblings.”

I love the story! Still can't move on. I read this novel in korean and can't wait for the eng ver fully translated. Gonna read this again. The story and dialogue between Reytan and Setz was heartbreaking yet touching.

I like the realistic charm of the story even if it's the regression genre. FL isn't c*cky or cheeky when it comes to putting herself under ML's wing--unlike Who Made Me A Princess or Daughter of the Emperor. ML is a non-toxic yandere which I think we all love.

I know that word sounds out of place in one of these 'rewind time and change the story and win myself a smoking male lead' stories but really I like this novel so far because it feels unique in the sense that the characters feel real.

Like, you know what really annoys me in novels like this? It's that cliche of how, suddenly, just bc the MC knows the future they're immediately the most talented and faultless creature. They win over every single ally with ease, crush enemies underfoot like swatting... more>> flies, and don't break a single sweat while doing it. I'm like yesterday you were socially awkward Cinderella and today you're silver-tongued puppet master??

So I like this novel bc the FL doesn't undergo an immediate personality change (though you see the seeds for future development, which I look forward to). She's been abused and neglected her whole life, and her character reflects that. She finds it hard to stand up for herself. She feels frightened and weary even as she tries to save herself. She's full of resentment and helplessness. I like how we see her go through these emotions so realistically. She's not suddenly 'okay' or full of confidence. She's as broken as she always was, but with motivation to change.

Also, speaking of change, I'm also glad that there are no immediate personality or relationship changes with the ML. He's clearly nurtured a hatred towards the blonde-haired and blue-eyed residents of the palace for years, and even if our FL has personally done nothing to earn his ire, it's easy to get caught up in prejudice (Racism? Lookism? Blind hatred?) once it's taken root inside you. His initial hostile attitude towards the FL is completely understandable (I mean really, blind hatred aside, the truth is that the girl is only being nice bc she's trying to use him- albeit initially) and enjoyable because even the smallest softening of his attitude in the future feels like a well-earned victory for the FL.

Like, personally, I find it so hard to swallow when there's this abused and paranoid ML and one act of kindness from the FL makes him her devoted follower for life. Sure, love (or infatuation) at first sight is a thing, but trust and respect are supposed to be earned. And while I don't want to give spoilers, I am happy that things seem to be going this way. Baby steps, my friends. Baby steps.

Long story short, if you want a story with insta-love and progress at the drop of a hat, look elsewhere. But if you want a slow burn with realistic characters who interact until they gradually change and progress, then this is your jam. <<less

I'm such a sucker for this kind of plot/relay. I mean how can you not read a hot tyrant doting on his sister (not blood related of coz) ?? I'm waiting patiently for the next update while re reading the synopsis over and over again.

As other reviews say, the charm about this novel is how real both the female and male lead feel and its deviation from typical reincarnation stories. It balances itself wonderfully between clichés and new takes.

I personally disagree that the female lead is weak. Rather than wit and charm, her strength is in her ability to persevere through the most difficult circumstances. It's refreshing how unlike many other novels, things don't magically work out for her. She doesn't have the intuition to scheme nor the smarts to politically maneuver against her... more>> tyrannical family because she was never given a formal education. Instead, we have a girl running toward losing fights in a desperate attempt to defy her abusers. Furthermore, her childhood of neglect and abuse cause her to remain an eternal outsider to aristocratic life. There's just a lot of dimension to her character I love.

Despite the title and formulaic genre of "taming" an aggressive male lead, it's really a love story about two extremely lonely individuals isolated by their environment who find solace in each other. Its slow pacing also works in its favor, as it allows their relationship gradually evolve from strangers, to friends/siblings (ish), to lovers. <<less

MAN I really can't get enough of these ''Girl tames Tyrant'' stories huh? Also what's up with these novels pairing totally non blood related siblings together? Every time I see them kissing I thibk of the ''What are you doing step bro?'' tiktok lmao. So much so, I was surprised when The Villainess is a Marionette didn't pull the same plot twist.

Anyway, I'm a tr*sh so I like it. I love when MCs give (un) conditional love to the MLs and MLs devote themselves to them. Classic and tr*shy but... more>> it's enjoyable! <<less

I have been patiently waiting for this update. I have been PRAYING for someone, ANYBODY, to pick this story up. And it f*cking happened. I can now go to sleep peacefully now.

Anyway, this story is PHENOMENAL. When this story took a break, I tried finding other stories that resonated the same vibe as this, but unfortunately the hole haven't been filled. The way that its written feels realistic. The mental and physical abuse the MC and ML goes through is heartbreaking. Other stories that have abuse is usually pushed off... more>> to the side and done and over. The Tyrant's Beloved Doll does not do that. It repeatedly enforces the abuse and after effects that cannot be so easily healed.

And the MC isn't magically smart and fooling every enemy at every turn. No, this sh*t is a slow burn at its finest. Even though the MC is mentally matured, she is still going to make mistakes and thats perfectly fine. No one is perfect. And I f*cking love that.

I cannot wait for the next update! AND THANK YOU FOR THE TRANSLATIONS! I appreciate the hard work and time you put into this. Thank you. 🤝 <<less

The situation is overexaggerated and v melodramatic (like with the wounds he would've died five times over), but what everyone says about the character is real. She's not really good at anything, and she's very weak. That's the type of environment she grew up in, where everyone looked down at her and oppressed her, so the personality she came out with makes sense. She doesn't handle the situations perfectly, but it makes it more realistic. ML is a real scum, but he was also abused, and I like that he... more>> doesn't fall for her quickly at all.

That said, it makes no sense to me how everyone else would be like this at 18 lmao. It would've been better if author wrote ML & the half-siblings to like 15 instead, and then rebellion at 18. Oh well. <<less

I feel rather emotional right now. This is the most brutal Palace drama between children I have ever seen in my life. And the fact that our little MC is trying to gain the favour of someone who's literally already an adult. That's gonna be hardcore for her.

What else can I say? It's literally a place where is to be use or used, kill or be killed. This sh*t hole of a Palace is even worse than a jungle.

This isn't your usual fluffy reincarnation story. This is a survival journey.

Honestly the way the heroine lets herself be mistreated by everyone (him included) is just rediculous! The least she could do now that she came back is try to stand for herself a little! She's just talking it all without retaliating even once this way she'll never get awaway from being a victim to their plans. Unless she gets his affection from his pity which is just as bad to me... & honestly although I did feel bad for ML at fist now I'm just trying hard not to straight... more>> out despise him... Why is he being so aggressive towards her while knowing how badly she lives! Why resent her for something he knows she doesn't even have! & from the look of it he seems to have a better life than hers... At least he's loved & protected by his mother unlike her... Although I can't blame him for his violent tendency & all seeing the environment he grew in I still hate how he's just ignorantly & baselessly blaming her for all the bad things happening to him while knowing damn well that her situation isn't better than his... If he was still a kid it'd be understandable, yet, he's already 18 -_- anyways I hope she changes her strategy a bit & tries to protect herself a little more she's just coming off as too dumb & weak for someone who's already been through it all! & supposedly more mature <<less

I like this kind of story and I really want to read the next chapters soon. Hope it will update fast. Because I want to see how they are getting together or rather want to see the ML being obsessed with the FL

Really loving this one!! Can't wait to see how the story progresses~ uwu

By the way, for those who think this is incest: it's not, don't worry. The tags itself say they are not blood related at all. Even the synopsis says so. So just think of them as brothers in name only uwu

The first chapter itself hooked me in! And I really like the fact that a sociopsychological phenomenon called the 'self-fulfilling prophecy' happened there o3o. Its something that happens all the time in real life and can have huge... more>> effects on things around us uwu. (Pardon my psychological rambling, I learnt about this in one of my classes recently so I got excited as soon as I noticed it abdakdnakns)

Anyway! Give this one a try! It's only a few chapters in, but I'm sure it'll be an amazing journey! <<less

So far the translation is excellent which adds the the enjoyment of the story. The FL is taken back to her childhood to correct her past and become support for the villainous ML and keep him from becoming evil, which is pretty typical of this type of plot. So far it's nothing new, but give It a try!

I love this novel so far, I look out for the updates and get super excited when a new chapter is uploaded.

The story can be alittle slow to develop but I thinks I feel that way because I am keen to read it. The dynamics between the characters is good, and while the ML is a little harsh, I am expecting rhat his backstory will explain this. There is definately enougb intrigue to keep you interested.

O and the translater is excellent.

The title really captivated me into reading this plus the cover. As I read this, though the "just died and went back to past life" thing is common, it's still interesting. I don't mind the slow pace because once we get to the best part, I know it will be worth it. I'm enjoying the story so far. Waiting for more sezh and raytan moments. Also what kept me going into reading this is that the translation is so good and very easy to understand. Keep it up. Sml♡

I don't really write reviews but my reading of this novel has prompted me to really vouch for more readers.

I am obsessed with the reincarnation genre and read a lot of novels related to it. However, this is definitely one of the best written one that I have read so far (the other being The Villainess Lives Twice). From characterisation to plot it just keeps me wanting more.

The synopsis of the plot is exactly what this novel is about but more! There are things happening that is intriguing which... more>> I am dying to find out. The writing of the novel is almost impeccable and that is also due to the amazing translation! I know that some web novels are MTL which can really detract away from the experience of reading as grammar and poorly structured sentence can leave us readers feelings disconnected from the novel.


She seemingly looks like a pushover but she is so feisty when she needs to be. When you have been abused as she has, you can really see why she is reserved and so innocent. Although she is living her reincarnated life to save her own ass, the relationship between Sezh and Raytan is really endearing. She genuinely cares for Raytan and is a shining light in his desolate life.


We love a cold protagonist that is warm to people that he loves! He is lonely and his birth has many mysteries that we have yet to uncover. I also feel like he is a heavily abused person whose mentality has been messed with from birth. I absolutely feel sorry for him but I love the fact that although he enter a siblings relationship with Sezh it is evident that he has developed strong feelings for her (even though he is in denial phase).

I really cannot wait for more updates on the novel and to see what else the author has in store for us. Jealousy is in the air, the plot is gaining more momentum and romantic feelings are slowly being unravelled! <<less

This is surprisingly really good and well written! It’s one of those web novels that don’t take two paragraphs to describe the smallest detail, which is refreshing, but it’s still pretty good at setting the scene. Not to mention, it’s surprisingly realistic. I know that going back in time and taming your tyrant brother who killed you isn’t really realistic, but the development of the relationship and of the characters themselves is really well written. Our FL isn’t automatically some super smart bad ass and it makes her all the... more>> more love able as she feels more like a real person. I also love how we see the ML grow as a character and begin to cherish her. Not to mention, the romance aspect isn’t the only good thing about the story. The hidden mystery elements make it SO fun to read and I was so hooked.

and as a bonus, the translators seem like the coolest people out there. Thanks translators!!

- Good protagonist

- Easy to read + descriptive

- Nice development of plot

- Great mystery side element

5/5 !!! <<less

This is a very good korean novel, I ever read. I would like to thumbs up for the author and the translator, both of them are amazing in delivering this lovely storyline that we all can understand fully and feel the vibe.

I like the characters of the MC and ML, both of their relationship development are well described and looks natural and logic.

I would like to recommended all who love korean novels, to add this novel to their favorit list 😊

The translator group sure have a midas hand pick a baobei....

I was worried at first when I open 1st chapter, few of the translator group destroy the feel of story with their translation but this group so expertly do their job.

The plot, I can predict it for the future unless the writer was pervert hack it into twisted like chinese webnovel writers did. Rytan baby masscare whole royals because his mother recklessness drank the "meds" worsened by Yerena & Emperor bullying (same word diffrent means). The "half-sibling" will ravels all... more>> mystery and plots did by adults around them. I'm kind a understand FL character before reborn, me too is product of domestics violances. When I read what happen to her, I'm crying so hard. The pace kind a moderate, I graceful for that. Being torture by fast and slow paces of story at chinese webnovel, strong my "core" for nasty dog blood story.

The characters change so far, I kind a like it both peotagonist slowly but sure change into better human. The description of them so strongly vivid like how an npc like Marie, Luna and the Chamberlaine can make our imagination of theirs in story could build the intensity of the story. <<less

the story is interesting and exciting, but the development might be a bit slow. The characters are realistic and you can develop different emotions towards them; love, pity, anger and frustration. Sometimes, the FL can be annoying due to her naivety and weakness and denseness, but you can overlook it due to the severe abuse she went through since she was so young, unlike many other FLs who are given the same excuse for their s*upidity but actually in worst case, are neglected and not beaten to a pulp :)... more>> ML, at first acts like a scum but has a reason and will get better slowly. Actually its a good thing that he doesnt change overnight and doesnt fall for her for no good reason suddenly (unlike many other novels :D)

Overall, its a good read <<less

I really like the MC. She is honest and brave.
And I am looking for for the change in heart of Raytan.
It's so well writed that I can wait for him.
I mean, he really hate all the blondie ones at the start, so will take longer to care for MC, it's a natural thing. But I am ansious about the flufly.
