The Wolf Lord’s Lady


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

The previous lords have committed as many atrocities as possible to fill their bellies. I, the only daughter of that house, had discovered that my servant and lover was a spy.
And as the people wanted, my life ended with my execution.

However, with the memory of getting beheaded intact, I began a new life. I was planning to shoulder the sins of my past life and become a nun, but by some trick of fate, I came to work as a maid for the current lord.
Under my former lover, whose name, age and even hair colour were all lies.

The story is unique in the reincarnation genre in that:
1) The heroine was already the daughter of the domain lord before she died.
2) She then reincarnates in the same territory, probably right after she died.
3) When she turns 15 (as a reincarnated person with memories intact), she meets her ex-lover who is now 30. Suspend judgment until you've read chapter 3, since it feels like that's when the novel really begins. Ch1 and 2 are the heart rending backstory. The translator promised that the rest of the... more>> story is much brighter than the tragic chapter 1. <<less

In all honesty, other than the last chapters, there is nothing light in this novel. Well, it ain't that heavy either. Medium...? lol It is written in the POV of our female protagonist who, after the 'betrayal' she experienced and her execution, self-depreciating ain't even enough to describe it. It was a bit depressing, borderline masochistic.

True to the summary, she was the daughter of a tyrannical noble family; and because of it, was condemned to death. The one leading the revolution being her lover. Hence, the betrayal. Then again, even... more>> with her family corrupt and evil, MC is anything but! A lot of people actually liked her even back then. But then, even so, MC still think she was a sinner -- for if her luxury that sprung from her family's evil deeds was not a sin, then what was it...? Ignorance was no excuse. Thus, even if her lover had wanted for her to be spared, had wanted her to at least live, MC gave him no room to voice such suggestions and openly admitted acts she wasn't really involved. Over and over, we have this MC that always think it was her fault, and thus, would not mind receiving punishment, even actively seeking one, or acting as the antagonist just to "right the wrong" or save the people around her.

So, yeah, if you can't take this kind of thinking, this kind of POV, this story is not for you.

Concerning romance and overall plot, however, it was rather poignant. We have two people, in hindsight should initially be enemies, and each belonging to a social strata as different as heaven and hell, but fell in love in the end. It was poignant in a sense that, even with love, they were torn apart by circumstances. One forced to believe it was all a lie, the other being unable to express what he truly felt, seeing his lover look at him with those eyes, and bearing the burden of seeing her die in front of him. That even though she reincarnated, and him and a lot of people involved knowing so, they kept avoiding the issue at hand and pretended it was fine. It wasn't only until the very end where they finally affirmed "it was really alright for them to be together." Suffice to say, I find the last part rather cute. XDD ML was really loveable.

The flow was okay. I had no issues. Most conversations were rather philosophical. The first POV of MC kinda reminded me of Lightning Maid Empress. Only that this one was rather 'depressing' than 'weird'. lol Anyway, if you don't mind a bit to medium level of angst, then this one is a good novel to read. It's a bit short and doesn't deal with any unecessary drama. <<less

I really like this reincarnation story! So heartfelt!!! The development keeps me on my toes and after each chapter I keep wanting more ! I can't wait to see how the story goes from here on (chapter 11) ! I like how the feelings are not simplified.
I like how we can perceive the angst, regret, affection, of the characters.
I like the setting of the story. (No OP character, time skip from the death to the return of the lead character)

I was expecting to like this but after getting through 3/4 of the story I am not engaged with the story at all. I think part of this can be attributed to the writing style which is needlessly complex.

An example of this being when someone spits out blood as a result of ingesting poison, none of that is described. You are led to come to your own conclusions while the text suddenly states everything was "dyed with red". It's so vague and confusing.

The main character is also a bit irritating... more>> to me.


She supposedly loves her family too much to hate them after all the things they did, but she also loves the male lead enough to forgive him for killing her whole family as well as herself... This story could lead to some interesting character development if she hated him but she doesn't. She just lets him basically step all over her while thinking she needs to "atone" and he feels some half-assed guilt while still trying to be together with her.


The characters are so bland and I never feel any intense emotion from them except maybe in the first chapter when she's betrayed.


I'm not going to finish this but Kaid should get some diving retribution because he should not get away with killing a whole family of people even if it was for the greater good. I know he won't though.

I realized something reading a different story where the overall feeling was "waiting for the other shoe to drop", WLL is the silence after the other shoe has well and truly dropped. By the time story really starts, it's all over. All the frenzy of battle and calculation, the passion of forbidden love, and the spies in the dark that lead to revolution. The villainess (?) reborn has stopped in that silence. She doesn't want revenge or even to actively change and make up for her sins. She's a... more>> ghost in more ways than one. And somehow despite the bleak writing and a completely internalized MC (which I usually hate) I am eating this up with a spoon and wearing my new masochist badge proudly through my tears. It's a rebirth story in more ways than one, a reverse Cinderella, that moves quickly and with very few exceptions is written and translated beautifully. If there's an ounce of empathy in your soul, bring tissues. Weeping, honest to dog, weeping will occur. <<less

Started reading on a wimp. The novel managed to redeem itself a bit after the first couple of chapters. The idea is good but the writting and characters not so much. If only it was handled by someone a little more skilled it may have been in my must read list. Maybe it is bad translation but reading it it plain boring.

At the start the whole situation was ridiculous - the good daughter of the evil nobles? The new lord is a simple rebel and he managed to be recognized... more>> for the position? There was no option to safe the princess by marriage for example? The reasoning of the heroine was 'odd' for lack of better word. Becoming a nun?

All the more there are these pointless paragraphs that seem to be included for no reason and dialogues like 'You should eat more -.-' Is it just me or Asians are a bit obsessed with breakfast, lunch dinner...

On the up side - this seem like completed story. It won't be hundreds of chapters long. Past the stupid execution there is a good idea which is actually developed and most probably the tragedy tag is used correctly. 3/5 It has potential and for someone less picky than me it may be even excellent. <<less

So far so good. Its nice to have this kind of MC. The beginning definitely has the angst feeling to it. You kind of can actually feel and understand the character (IMO). She is smart but not that OP kind of smart like other major reincarnates female character. Her smart thinking kind of built up nicely so you can see the development and this is what I like about the story. The lead male character is likable too.

I was expecting too much from this novel due to the reviews. I did enjoy the beginning, but half way it just went down.

Maybe I'm just a cold hearted butt hole, but I don't really understand why everyone keeps saying that this is a sad novel. It wasn't even sad at all.

i somewhat feel like I just wasted my time reading this, but whatever, I already read it.

Beautiful writing, great translation (especially the first ones), and exceptional storyline. Extremely heart-wrenching yet endearing at the same time. The author left no loose strands in the plot, and every little detail came together perfectly at the end. It was as if this novel was written and edited professionally from the start.

What is this.. This story is so good my tears cannot stop.

I have always read cute adorable story that reading this seems more realistic to me. But it's cute and touching in it's own way.

The author's writting, the plotline, the character development, the plot twists that makes me either touched or shocked. Honestly, it's the best.

... more>> I'm so grateful of the translator for bringing this story so that internationally it can be read. This is a masterpiece for me, really.

But I suggest for those who's not in the mood of reading something deep, please do put this in your reading list for you to read if you have the mood to do so. Because this story is worth a try. <<less

Overall this is a pretty decent novel. I especially liked the initial 7-8 chapters because I thought the main characters inner conflict was portrayed very well. Torn been her family and love, right and wrong, she is reincarnated and forced to live in close proximity to the one who betrayed her. The initial setup was bang on for me. And then, it sort of went downhill. The middle, instead of being meaty and solid turned out to be unnecessarily wordy. The wordage was complex when it needn't have been. So... more>> the FL's inner monologues are filled with fake drama like "the mistake you made" or "I'm a liar" -- you'll spot these as you read. Not required IMO. It became tiresome to read all that unnecessary text. But it's a HE and the latter fluff made it satisfactory. So I'll say it's decent but not a must read by any means. <<less

True to its reputation, it really does contain enough painfulness to be classified as angst. However the sweetness really balances it out, especially the fluff at the end. I love this story because the further you get into the story, the more things are uncovered. Sure, some of the information revealed doesn't drastically flip your world upside down like some of the more exciting plot twists I've encountered, but the ones that do appear simply changes your perspective gently (and occaisionally bittersweetly). Additionally this gives all of the characters- even... more>> some of whom the readers could not have the chance to personally familiarize themselves with at the beginning, like her family- more depth than before. The things that I ended up finding out makes the story a worthwhile reread, in my opinion, to catch the parts that were missed or misinterpreted the first time. <<less

That i'll say if asked to summarize my experience with this novel in a word.

The author wastes the enormous potential of the novel and all the new themes choosing to ruin what could have been a real masterpiece.

The beginning of the story is, in a way, the ending of another:

... more>>

during a revolution the previous evil rulers of the fief, the family of our protagonist, are killed and to lead the revolution was no other than the lover of the main character: a low raked noble that worked for 2 years under a false guise as a servant in the house.

Our heartbroken main character whose name will remain unspoked for all the novel chooses to follow her family and claims all the sins of her family, so her lover could get rid of her cleanly and rules the fief without source of trouble. But what seemed to be the end was the begin of the new life of the MC now reborn as an orphan called Shirley Hince.


Other than the innovative beginning another thing the author is really good at is at painting the feeling of our heroine and make the reader feel emphaty with her; an ability perfectly used in 3 event: splendidly in the beginning (already described) ; a bit less skillfully when she gives her goodbay to the resting place of her parent (at ch 11) and really well when he describe Tim/Wilfred (another noble killed by Kaid during his "coup d'etat" that reicarnated and will attempt a revenge) losing his sanity (at ch 14).

Despite thoose two strong good point this novel isn't able to create a world, a story suitable to develop its characters.

The previous rulers' evil deeds are never mentioned, what we can see is that they exploited their subjects and persecuted those who complained, things that deserve an harsh punishment, but not necessarily such a gruesome death (two of them was burned alive!).

Along this, the political situation that caused all the revolution is only hinted but never explained, and even in untraslated chapter we will simply know that the king and the confining nobles planned the downfall of the Lady's family because Laius (that is the name of the fief) was too much powerful, but how a rebel is allowed to became a ruler is still a mistery.

Beside the main character and Tim/Wilfred all other character are a bit too plain (even the male leadere never leave an impression too deep). All loved the Lady and knew she was innocent, but no one did anything to save her.

It's still a mistery why only the Lady and Wilfred come back from death and why their bodies became more and more similar to their previous ones.

Aside the beginning the story didn't have a real depth, something is seen in the graveyard scene and during the kidnapping, but no more. Hoping for a development I read the untraslated chapter, but is even worse and it seem like a soap-opera, the beautiful tones of the first chapter is losed forever :

Shirley and Kaid go to the capital to ask to the king the permission to marry; there they meet a famous jeweler that never sell his creation to those of Laius because he met the Lady before the revolution and was deeply impressed by her beauty and good heart so never forgaves the ones who killed her.

But after Shirley correctly answer a question abaut an unique creation of the jeweler (like she did more than 15 yeas before) he recognizise her and finally decide to go back to Laius.

Then they meet the king, the prince and the princess. During their stay at palace Shirley save the princess from some killers and is granted the permission to marry Kaid, but the princess (that never got a friend until now) didn't want Shirley to leave. Accidentally the king dies falling from the stair and the princess becoming queen decide to kidnap Shirley.

So the prince allied with Kaid, banish the princess and become king. What's more Wilfred returnas an ally (Surprise, surprise! Even he now succumbed to the lord wolf 's charm! And obviously Kaid forgived him and took him in... if it was so simple to ferget and forgive I'm beginning to wonder why all those death in the first chapter...). After failing to kill Kaid he is forced to reveal that he and Shirleay are reincarnators to his previous emlployers the ruler of Darich (a fief near Laius) and begin to work under Kaid helping Shirley in exchange for returning in Laius.


But what I cannot really REALLY accept is the concept of love in this novel: Kaid clearly deceives and betrays the Lady, kills her family without giving them a legal trial and in the end kills his own lover. He kills her while he always got the power and the possibility to save her, he chooses his own ambition and dream over her live and would never change his choice. What's more he never thought to talk to her BEFORE the trial (since is normal that anyone would be at the best confused after losing family, home and lover) and after it he never really try to change her choice in the prison, never give his all (just a small tanlk and easily abandoned her... he GAVE UP one her) but the autor describe his love as a true love even after his hand are soaked in her innocent blood...

I'm sorry to say this, but that's not love, it lacks what really matter: love is responsibility, trust and above all never hurting the object of your love.

I do think that he is a better ruler than the previous one but I DO think he isn't worthy of her love. What's more strange is that the Lady seems to love Kaid unconditionally, he is presented to her as someone that is innocent, gentle and could never hurt even a bug, but is revealed to be someone so cunnig to leads a revolution and kills in cold blood her whole family BEFORE HER EYES (two was beheaded and the other 2 burned alive) and still she loves him so much that choose to die for his sake, even if is clear now that all she had seen until now, what she loved until now, is a mask.

And it's not enough. He soiled her memory for all eternity, make a festival in the day of her death where people throw stones at her pictures, but Shirley choose to be with him claiming that if he ever become evil like her parents were, she will become a demon like him to be together until the end (ch. 20) (so we finally see that her 15 years of depression wasn't because she and her family were evil and she wanted atone for their sins, but because she cannot be with Kaid (WTF!?), that's is why she decided to die) and doing so the story loses all its depth making its characters flat.

Theat is not a rappresentation of love, but a depiction of selfishness and hypocrisy from his side and something akin to obsession from her side. No more.

But still many say this is an Happy ending.

I don't think that she should have necessarily searched revenge, the story could have been good even without revenge (even if I think is human to feel rage and hatred towards someone that deceive you, stoles everything from you, killed all your family before your eyes and celebrate the day of your death...) because in the end Kaid is a good ruler, but one thing is forgive (because forgiving somethimes help to go over your past, allow you to never lose your self in hatred and revenge and allow you to became a better person) another is forget, she should have never been with him.

But the autor do everything in its power to force them togedher even trying to shift the blame of Shirley death upon herself writing something like that after she got imprisoned and hearing all the thing her family did she unconditionally believed that her beloved family is guilty and when she heard the guards complaining the new lord she got a "revelation" (she that is described as a ignorant, fool princess) that if she is alive Kaid cannot rule...

It would have been beautiful to see her grow as a human being and becaming from a sheltered princess whose only good points were her beauty, her royal boood and her good heart a mature woman that can indipendendly seek her way in life and find someone to be with her for real as a real lover but...

So disappointing... <<less

Good story but my advice dont read the narration and and the conversation the same time it will confuse you choose only one.


The story is good unfortunately the narration is confusing to the point that the story suddenly jumps on something without explaining how did it happen. So im gonna drop this now.

For someone who doesn't like angsty/misunderstood type of novels, I fell in love with this one. The story made me want to cry and smile many times, and at the end, I smiled. It was like a roller coaster ride and I really enjoyed it. The selfless MC and ML are literally couple goals and makes me lament on my love life. Why can't I meet such a kind, understanding, and older man too?! TT ^ TT

I dropped by to read this after the chapter 1 of this story had a manga release. The translated parts of The Wolf Lord's Lady does stops halfway through Volume 2 (Volume 1 is Chapters 1 to 14 iirc), but it stops at a good point, and can be treated as a conclusion to the story until translations pick up again.

I really liked the story and I had it at 5 stars in my mind until chapter 12+, where it enters a sore point in the story as it tries... more>> to add action scenes that I personally don't think was needed. It does have a satisfying conclusion though, and as I mentioned earlier it ended off at a nice spot alongside with the translations.

I recommend reading this, maybe even going as far as calling it a slightly hidden gem in the sea of English translated WNs out there. <<less

I encountered this novel quite by chance while I was browsing at night...

... fast forward hours later: I found myself sobbing in the wee hours, feeling sad and relieved at the same time. Sad because the story just hurts me right in the feels, and relieved because thankfully it ends happily. THEY DESERVE THE HAPPY ENDING, OKAY. *go back to sobbing*

Ahem. Anyway, I think the story is well written, else, I wouldn’t sacrifice my sleep hours (I had to go to work the next day!) just to binge read until... more>> the end. The translation is not the best, some things still elude me because I can’t quite make sense of the sentences, but I thank the translator’s effort to bring this story to us who cannot read Japanese at all. <<less
