Worth the Read

There are so many types of stories that have a person from our world traveling to another that they begin to blur together. This is not one of them.

Lena (who goes by Ley to hide her gender) is a total bada$$. She is blunt and will tell you the truth, even if it hurts. I find her character to be refreshing. I think that Lee did a beautiful job in presenting us a character that would accurately show us how anyone would have acted.

Lena is suppose to be "The Chosen One", "The Saver", etc. Yet when she first gets to that world, all she could think about was what she wanted: revenge against the stepmother who kill her mother and friends. She doesnt believe in fate and she doesnt care if she was the foretold one. She only cares about herself...and isnt that what we humans do best? its in our nature to be selfish.

Yet as time goes on, people are drawn to her as she is drawn into their conflicts. Before she realizes it, she begins to care. She begins to want to save this pitiful land from the Mad Queen.

Most people would find this story to be boring but i see this as a realistic representation of what would happen to one of us if we were transported back to another world. I have a love and hate relationship with the ending. I love how the artist made Lena show fear as she watched her friends be slaughtered in front of her. It made her seem more human, more relatable. What i didnt like was the that luke-warm, half-a$$ed ending. There should have been one final chapter, an epilogue, to show what happened at the end.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It would have been nice to see if she did return to see her true parents, if she did become Queen of Kabul, if she did end up marrying Lucien, what happened to Brenna and the baby


Overall I enjoyed it and will be looking for similar mangas to read

One of the Best Female Leads!

This will be a rant, full of love, don't mind this.

D'AWWWWW LENA IS ONE OF MY MOST SPECTACULAR FEMALE LEADS EVER!! It's such a gem to find her in this manga(manhwa- whatever) world where stereotype characters and cliched plot takes place! I'm so damn tired of reading the same thing over and over again, and this one is such a breath in of fresh air! Saver reminds me so much of Basara, which is also good biggrin
I love the characters here! They're so funny, emotional, and has a change of heart, this story has driven all of my undying emotions hidden inside of me, I love Michael, Lucien, Shine, Cid, Sean, Sheris and many other characters involved in the story, they practically had a role in this, not just plotholes nor fillers to stretch the story for useless backstories and flashbacks, and the twists! Oh God I love them!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Although I would say the ending is a bit of a disappointment, I was expecting for a grand (swords)fight between the btchy queen and Ley but it's okay, as long as she rots in hell :D the last chapter was also rushed, Ley shows less emotions here and full of monologues inside her head, she could atleast smile a bit more because she finally came back to Lucien right? She was like 'hell yeah I'm back bitches' and so on so forth.

DESPITE THAT! I still love this masterpiece! I don't regret wasting my 36 hours for reading this instead of studying for my finals(lol I became a slowpoke while reading Saver) although I wish for the manhwa-ka to add at least one bonus chapter or something just to show Lena and Lucien's progression and the other characters progression after the last war,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and even better, a cute wedding and a child to bear! I want to see Lucien and Lena's child in the future! Maybe an energetic boy or a split image of Lena who also loves to do Kendo!

Awww I'll miss Saver, one of the best manhwas ever!

The scanlations for the first few chapters are not the best, but they get better. Also, the first three chapters are just the background for the main character, past that the story is completely different. This is one of my favorite Shoujo and has a similar feel as Basara.

Not my favorite. The build up was so slow..same with the romance. You never actually connect with the characters. They literally float by you. Sorry but this one was quite boring :/

The Michael, the Count, Lucien, and the Leon tribe were so beautiful. What if PLOT TWIST: Michael was someone from the Leon tribe? I wish there were more romance. It took forever for Lucien and Lena to meet.

Much potential but ultimately mediocre. Worth the read for a badass female lead

I honestly fell in love with the female lead here. I found myself relating to her and above all, admiring her ruthless attitude, strength, and charisma, but heartbreakingly, the story lacked meaning and the pacing of the story was a bust. I read it all though. I was frustrated midway but kept at it till the end.

At the beginning it felt as if this was about her overcoming her fears, her anger towards her family, and about growing into a more appreciative person, but the story didn't fully explore this. the mangaka, at some point, began simply conveying the events, neglecting the portrayal of the relationships in the story and the main characters feelings and values. It started to feel very Anatolia Story-like, where the political scheme became the bulk of the story. This was pretty awful for the most part. My point is, although things were developing plot wise, all the meaningful aspects of the story just stopped being explored. It's disappointing since there were many developments that could've been covered. Especially the romance, which seemed more like a sub-plot. I don't want to sound whiny here but the mangaka started a romance, teased the readers, and never developed it. i have reason to complain.

It's a good manhwa with a good plot and all but have to admit that I found it rather boring at times. Like it just seemed like it was dragging on too much about something in particular and then it seemed to hardly pay attention to other parts. I would've liked more on the modern world part as it feels like the author just totally forgot about it and then in the last chapter go "Ah there was a modern world in this story, I need to include it to finish the story!" and half-heartedly threw it in. I felt that there wasn't enough character development and a lot of the time I got confused on who someone was.

After all my complaints I still liked it though especially Lena/Ley!!! And also her friends and companions! I sort of wished that Lena would end up with Michael though...The story has its flaws but its still a nice story to read that I enjoyed. The art is also quite good and pretty.

In a fantastical epic sort of way. I think you have to really like war plot stories sorta like Red River but with a lot less romance. I don't really think that was he best manga to compare it to but it was one of the first to pop into my head in comparison. Idk It's ending is pretty good I just wish it was less open ended concerning the main characters and what happens to them.

Initially, I found the story to be heading in a weird direction(her 'modern' life) but when the story developed, it was really great and everything. But I personally felt that the ending was indeed rushed.. And I also wanted to see the King's and Lena's love blossoming... After all it's still a romance and shoujo(?) manhwa...
