At first when reading this series I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not, but kept at it to see how it would end. One thing I loved about it immediately was the gorgeously detailed artwork. The story is a bit slow-going at first, but gradually picks up as it goes along and everything fits into place by the end. A beautiful, memorable fairytale story.

Alright but a little unsatisfying after a while
Well, in general, I liked the story. At the beginning I found it very interesting and addictive. But after a while, i began to loose interest in the characters. I thought that there was something missing, though I'm not sure I can put my finger on it. Maybe it was the tempo, that was a little too slow. Or maybe the characters were lost a little, kind of loosing their bright colors after manipulating them enough. I don't know. But I guess I fell a little incomplete finishing this series... I still think it was good overall, but I cannot get myself to give it more than a 7. Am I too harsh?
A good read
Now that ive finished reading it, this sweet, well thought through, and just plain fun story, I realize just how much easier it is to appreciate the slow stories which can often be more realistic. In this style, you dont feel rushed to read each chapter, but are still able to enjoyed every little detail and take your time. This story captured my attention with a fantastical background and kept it with beautiful characters, a great plot that involves fate, and a classic type art that didn't feel rushed.
I would totally recommend reading this when you have the time. I was able to finish in one day, but that's because I'm on summer vacation. Anyways, 10 for me, and a spot on my favorites list.
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.
Delectable, indescribable, too many pretty words pop into my mind that can portray this story. I admit that at times I wanted the story to go a certain way, but that's what makes manga/manhwa, manhwa/manga. Lee Mi Ra's talents at portraying her characters are amazing.
