The Tyrant’s Leash Is Held by a Maid

“So, Your highness, shall we make a bet? Whether or not you will remember my maid’s name after a month.”

“That’s not bad. It may be difficult to make eye contact with the maid, but her name is easy to remember.”

Liana Siodo was the maid who knew the subject too well.

To the point where she could understand why the lady she served would make such a bet with the Imperial Prince she had a crush on.

For a simple maid like her to take the Prince dear in her heart was ridiculous.

Therefore, she wanted to put an end to her unrequited love.

“His Highness, Imperial Prince Illyd, has awakened Manish. I have come to see Miss Liana Aradna, the only one who can calm him, per the priest’s instructions.”

If it had not been for her, they would all have been dead.

* * * *


Illyd pressed his face against Liana’s soft, slender neck.

“What took you so long?”

Like a wild beast trying to convince her it would not hurt her. Or like a young beast acting cute to seem good.

“I… almost killed everyone.”

Illyd reached for the hem of Liana’s robe with trembling hands.

“Don’t ever leave me again.”

He wanted to look good.

Only to the one who was like God to him, the person who held his leash.

But contrary to his expectations, Liana’s eyes were full of terror.

Totally underrated. All main characters in this story are smart and witty. Very very enjoyable.
This is worth it. The intriguing and mysterious story with 3D characters. The translations is smooth too. I can't sit still without grinning when ML start to charm his way around 😉

There are only few chapters here now, hmm 🤔 why people give low stars so fast, though when the story plots looks promising and the translation is smooth 🤩

Chapter 1 is a prolonged chapter, so there is no plot but a glimpse of the future.
Then the story picks up in chapter 2 where main characters start to appear in the banquet.

The dialogues and writing are smart and smooth. There is no excessive expression. So far the pace is not slow seeing the banquet scene end within the chapter with mains character being introduced eloquently in 3D too (+1 and without shoving information to reader face, another +1) 👌🏻

Hmmm I will give 5 for now in hope other readers could give this a chance when seeing a good rating because this one really really seems worth to try.

I love this story! Watching common plot points happen from the perspective of the maid is awesome and I can't wait until the ML goes buckwild (and honestly I love how it looks like he goes wild for good way too many yandere stories don't deliver a truly crazy ML and 1 in particular crushed my expectations so I truly hope he's a deranged mf)

The story so far it's good but I don't really like MC personality. She isn't as smart as she is described by other character. And she's a bit naive I think.

... more>>

MC niece will enter academy but she will be bullied. All MC can do is beg the emperor (ML) to proctect her niece while she herself is the empress (but don't really have power). After that, the emperor (ML) will ordered all children that bullied MC niece to get executed and all their family will get executed too. But later, MC will told the emperor (ML) to apologized for killing so many people. I mean like she's the one who beg the emperor (ML) to protect her niece and when the execution happend she acts like she don't want it. I know that the way the emperor (ML) done that isn't right but if she didn't like his (ML) way of solving that then she has to solved it alone rather than just cry and beg to him to solved it (ML). She acts like she knows the emperor (ML) but I don't think she know about him (ML) at all. One more thing is that she's so easy to be fooled by other people. But the narator/other character sometimes describe her like she is so amazing and smart. Well, atleast she's a hard worker.


I'm not really good a describing so it's better if you read this novel yourself so you can (maybe) get a different opinion. Thank you !! <<less
