The beginning wasn't too bad. It was actually funny and kinda interesting with good pacing though by vol 3, it started to drag endlessly and the story started to lose its' direction. However, somwhere around vol 5 to 6, the pacing picks up again and the story actually develops into a rather matured mesh of mythology and fairy tale. It's too bad the story and plot wasn't all that consistent or I'd have given it an 8 or even 9. Altogether, it's a fun read if you're looking for something to pass the time.

the drawing is beautiful! love it... the story is very good, but sometimes parts of the story is a little boring. though the prince is very funny, he looks like a girl, because of his long hair. that's a pitty. but the drawings makes everything ok!! ^_^
The only complaint I have is the love interest choice
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Misty-rain had much more chemistry with Hanbit than she did with sirius...sirius is too much of a mary sue and not very realistic. In the end she leaves her human family to go with sirius...it was unexpected since
there really isn't that much of a romance between the two.
calm yourself down
Be prepared to face a fairytale like story. And try to ignore world wide know magical references(sleeping beauty, Medusa etc.). Because this story is not bad. It's originality would be greater without those references, but that's only my opinion. Despite that I think this is readable. Author presents us with a mystical kingdom, a damsel in distress(constantly), and a prince on a white unicorn, a witch, a curse etc... It's not so bad to read something different from time to time, and it's unique enough to be interested.
btw. Misty-Rains character reminded me of someone- That orphan girl who dreamed of becoming a lady... don't know why exactly.

Loved it!! Though some parts dragged on so long, like for instance I wish it hadn't taken so long for you know who's memory to come back.. But all in all it was great. The artwork was gorgeous. Would've loved a more detailed ending reunion though..
I'm not gonna lie, I totally shed a couple tears when they sent her to the human world... even though i KNEW it was gonna happen.. Yeah I know... kinda pathetic. :p

This is not an exciting story but is good, that is if you are into fantasy. If like me you have to be in the mood then save it for when you are because it's 7 volumes of fairy tales.
The start was great but wish the human world story part was better and it drag on. The ending was alright, it would be nice to see if they had children in the end X3. The artwork was wonderful. I'm looking forward to read the author other work.
So-So...but beautiful artwork!
The best thing about this book was the beautiful artwork without a doubt! As far as the rest of the story it was alright but a bit boring, cheesy, and it tended to drag on with uselessness. It's more fantasy and less romance, and I felt like it built up 7 volumes just to have this short crappy ending. Unfortunately there was no real romantic development between Misty and Sirus; it was a one-sided love if anything. But, if you're looking for a non-romantic, comedic, fantasy, with amazingly gorgeous artwork, then this is for you!

When I first started reading it, I thought it would be a classic fairytale. We started with Misty-Rain as a child living in the land of Dokebi without knowing anything about her parents - I found that rather typical. I liked that the author added elements from the Greek Mythology, such as Medusa, Fates, etc.
Anyways, later it takes place in the human world & it turns very boring. First of all, between volumes 3-5, the story pace is very slow. It is just school-life, with much of comedy and seeing Misty-Rain doing stupid things. Basically, I found all of the characters annoying.
Only in volumes 6-7, it becomes more dark & mature. Yet still, it does not saves it. When I first picked the manhwa, I thought it was gonna be about some older girl, judging by the cover, but it's just a kid. And I didn't like the artwork at all.
