MTL'd but I should've checked to see if it was already translated :' (

Love the MC, a bit uncomfortable in the beginning with the constant repetition praising how beautiful he is, but he's classy, scheming and goes for what he wants. That's mainly all I ever want for a shou.

It's a beautiful relationship between MC and ML though I do think ML fell a bit too quick.. But I really love that they accept each other's weaknesses or traits that seem undesirable to others. ML is so so kind, HAHA... more>> where can I find him??? He's literally Mother Teresa.

A lot of the plot's sci-fi terms etc were pretty much lost in translation cuz of my decision to MTL.. Maybe when I forget how the story goes I'll pick it up again from the beginning, but with an actual translation this time.

Plot was kinda crazy, I first assumed he was going to focus on treating his mum or spending more bonding moments with her but she only gets like one scene.. Feels bad. It focuses more on MC's rise to power I guess. Face-slaps were good but can be a bit much sometimes. <<less

[I Recommend To Read If You Like Some Good Face Slapping]

Those who say the story is just a replica of After I got married, Those Who betrayed me were reborn',

I understand why you might think that. Afterall there some similarities between the two stories.

But what I feel is that 'The Way Of The Empress' is that right off From the bat we can see the MC's scheming nature and black lotus characteristicsi

... more>>

Like how the MC can be ruthless when dealing with anyone and his face slapping is very powerful against his good for nothing family


BTW the MC is also a Meng/Moe who act like a lovesick puppy who has eyes for the ML despite him treating the MC coldy at the beginning of marriage

Really good reading< ( ̄︶ ̄) > <<less

Interstellar Era with Sentinel/Guide Setting.

Good short read with a strong MC (shou). Recalled this plot being well fleshed out and highly enjoyable.

More Detailed Summary:

After his half brother flees from the arranged marriage with the person set as MC's marriage partner. MC (shou) replaces the half brother to marry the invalid crown prince. MC has his own agenda for revenge with this switch in marriage partners being the beginning.

This is from the author of the "After I Got Married, Those Who Betrayed Me Were Reborn" and I highly recommend you read that instead.


Because this one reads like a prototype of that novel. A lot and I mean a lot of things from this novel was used in AIGM (even the set up: MC has to marry a disable prince bc of his scum brother). But here the plot is not balanced. Like here the first 20 chapters are sorely about MC dealing with his scum family (getting revenge... more>> for his mum - does that ring a bell?) - with no appearence of ML. And once he is done, his family is never mentioned.

And this is the main problem of this novel: no intwresting overarching plot. Once MC and ML get together nothing interesting happen. And they get together really quickly.

So yeah, a younger and edgier version of a really good novel (at times embarrassingly edgier).

If you haven't read AIGM Go and read it instead, and if you have - this novel has nothing that will surprise you.

(I am dead serious: I am 100% sure this is not the author self repeating, but them realising that they did not realised a potential of this story. Go read AIGM if yot haven't yet). <<less

This reads a lot like, "After I got married, those who betrayed me were reborn", at least for ML's part/set-up. I wasn't aware of the fact that both have the same author and came to know of this from the previous reviewer.


... more>>
  • Both the MLs are disfigured/disabled respectively and the MC heals/soothes them with his mental powers.
  • MC's background is also pretty similar, with a cruel step-mom and brother, irresponsible dad, and made-to-go crazy (mad) mom.
  • Both of them are in interstellar set-up and MC is in mecha research dept.
  • There is this crazy sub-plot which just gets inserted in between which you'll feel like, "That wasn't necessary " and all of a sudden the emergence of the villain boss w/o any signs previously.

There must be other similarities which I can't recall for the time being since I read After I got married a few months back.



  • After I got has an alpha-omega set-up where as the way of empress being sentinel-guide.
  • In After I got the villains get reborn but in this one, there is no rebirth sub-plot.
  • The MC in way of empress is way more cunning and cruel who uses everything as his stepping stone to get what he wants.

I thought that this was a cheap copy of after I got married, those who betrayed me where reborn but that's because it's written by the same author.

To me that seems like the author was too s*upid and last to come up with a different plot thus giving you unnecessary deja vu.

I hate it. I'm disappointed with the author.

Not worth it. Too similar.

So I only decided to review because so far the similarities between "After I Got Married, Those Who Betrayed Me Were Reborn" and "The Way of the Empress" is pretty superficial. I don't really understand why people are comparing these two novels. Just give this story a shot and let it stand on its own.

although if you need to know how different they are one major difference is that the MCs are really different.

... more>>

Like I would even go as far as to label the MC of this novel as a yandere. His bottom line would have been nonexistent if not for the ML. The ML is the light of his life. Not to mention this MC is a schemer. He actively takes revenge. Also, this MC is very proactive, he's the one who pursues the ML not the other way around.

While the MC in "After I Got Married, Those Who Betrayed Me Were Reborn" does not care about vengeance. He is cold and resigned to not have a good life because of being so used to everyone's treatment of him. He does not trust the ML in the beginning at all and only agreed to marriage to take his loved ones away from the cesspit that is his family.


I mean if you read enough novels you know that the MC's personality is really important because the majority of the time you're reading from his point of view. <<less

I read this novel last night until today and indeed, I agree, it has similarity story line of "After I Got Married, Those Who Betrayed Me Were Reborn" but if you'll ask me which one is better I dont know the answer. But I still prefer this novel with a lot of description/ story plot about their empire and as well the history. This novel not only focus with the MC but also to other people which is for me is thumbs up. The MC is not a reborn person... more>> and not also a transmigrated. It really explained his miserable life and how he overcome those obstacles. Honestly, I liked the MC personality, his character was really hooked me to finished this. At the end we are only human, our nature will instinctly lying for survival. No matter what, never give up your life to fate rather you initiate to change it. <<less

I'm just kind of detached from the characters so far. The MC has no personality or career other than being incredibly green tea, and also being the best looking person in the galaxy, to where his father, grandfather, and everyone else oggles him every time they meet, but on paper just generically chinese (black hair, good skin, and that's all there is to him, even though a chunk of every chapter goes into describing how captivated everyone is with his looks). So he's basically just a marty stu. Half the... more>> villains are incredibly easy to push over and all use the same method of pretending to be loving, giving the MC large gifts, and doing whatever he asks. This is literally the type of character that would be a villain to be beaten in a quick transmigration story with an op halo of visual attraction. <<less

Go and try to read it first, is my suggestion you'll never know, you'll probably like it.

For me though, this story was a little too...? I can't put it to words, maybe cringe? Not that it's that bad, but just the way the story was executed made it like some sort of a childish story. The idea is pretty good but I feel like the author forced some stuff in here.

Basically some stuff just doesn't make sense, it's a little illogical. Then again it's a fiction, what should I expect?... more>> 🤣

It's also pretty forgetful, I usually leave a story for a week to see if it's really worth reading or not. If I can't remember what it was about usually it's a waste of time. This one was very forgetful! The story doesn't really leave a deep impression on me.

So, try and read it first! See if you like it. <<less

I read it via Google translator after chapter 48. Understandable

•Smart & Cunning MC, obsessed with the ML

•Kind, righteous ML

... more>> •Face slapping


•Mystery, a little bit of thrill

Plot :

Romance is there but not main focus, Main plot is about empire rebuilding, bringing the change in society.

It's kind of slow or boring around chapter 60, so much so that I wanted to drop it BUT it's good later on. Thus the main plot begins pacing up in 2nd half.

If we look from modern society's perspective this novel focuses on equality (gender, poor-rich) etc.

Conclusion :


It's a short novel despite having 100 chapters. I think because the chapters are comparatively short. <<less
