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 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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

The author isn't particularly great at articulating action but sure is great at expressing emotion. Sucks that this stopped getting translated because it was quite an enjoyable read.

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

Some people were giving this story 3/5 and lower. I wonder if they have emotions on the planet their species is from.

Anyways, my eyes hurt from all the crying! Excellent writing and character development.

One of my all-time favorites, and I have re-read it several times. It's tragic enough that you'll want to have a tissue box nearby, but the journey and ending is so satisfying that I'd recommend re-read and re-living the reading experience.

So, the story begins with the tragic death of the protagonist where the end of call the espionage has already ended, and a solution to the conflict within the country and revolutionary war is ending.

The protagonist later reincarnates and meets her lover, a lover that betrayer her in her past... more>> life to save a country, and tries to reconcile the differences she's noticed in her current life and her lover.

When she notices all these differences, she feels conflicted, and realizes she has loved and will continue to love her lover.

I find that this conflict is wonderfully expressed in the book, and the author really goes out of their way to show how the protagonist does not change immediately - especially noting that people are a product of their past. It's not a simple love story, but a rather one of duty, loyalty and guilt - one of reconciliation of the past and present.

I find that the first few chapters to be the most memorable, since we really start to empathize for the MC and wonder how she will deal with having to serve someone she's been betrayed by. In particular, I've always had a soft-spot for protagonists that play the villain, and are meaningfully self-destructive as a means to an end (in this case, the restoration of the nation of Laius and to dissuade the male MC from feeling any guilt). However, that doesn't mean that the journey the female MC and male MC reach their happy ending is any less heart-wrenching and bittersweet.

Overall, the story is well-worth the time to read, especially since it's not a long story, with only 20 chapters and a few ongoing omake epilogue chapters (at the moment 6 extra chapters). I'd recommend this story to just about anyone. <<less

I basically agree with the other reviews. Was it written to perfection? No.

The actions and positionings of the characters need work. I was barely able to picture their physical interactions to each other. The reason for said reincarnation along with other/s wasnt fully explored and explained. There were also spots, especially in the MC's storyline regarding her previous life that could've been not left blank on purpose, and told differently instead as a red herring. Also the side characters were a bit.... flat. more chapters overall might've allowed the exploration... more>> of them.

What I did love was the emotional complexity and the exploration thereof of someone in their position. MC's and soulmate. The grave visit ugh....i cried. It was a slow (ish) journey that paid of nicely. I was very much invested in the characters. The wording that some here said to be unnecessary I absolutely enjoyed. It lent depth to the supposed time period of the characters and how the MC herself was raised.

Idk if there is one but I would've liked a pov chapter of the man starting childhood until the actual betrayal itself. <<less

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
