Imaginative and intense, but tied up too quickly

I really enjoyed a lot of this manga, even though occasionally, I had no idea what was going on. There were so many characters and conflicting factions that it was hard to keep up with what was going on when the chapters were being released slowly. The art is great and I felt the plot and characters together seemed really promising. However, it definitely has many flaws. The ending felt so rushed - did the manhwaga get a bit tired and lost with the plot, and just decided to get it over with? I had no idea the end was so close because there was just no indication, and I feel a bit disappointed because I believed the manga was still building up to the big climax but never actually got there. There wasn't much closure in the last chapter. It was the "What... that's it?!" feeling when I clicked for the next page and there wasn't one. I think it's definitely worth reading if you like historical manga/manhwa, but I don't think it quite ended up being the epic I was expecting it to be.

A bit rough but gets better

Starts off rough. The art in the beginning is bad. All the characters look the same except for hair. Little to no facial expressions leaves characters looking stiff. The artist also can't draw a fight scene to save his life. Some panels you are left with wondering whats going on? Transitions are also very bad as it will switch from one person to a different person in another location without warning (also doesn't help that many characters look the same).

What saves this series for me is the story and main protagonist. Unlike some I don't mind that lena/ley has somehow moved from one world or time to another. The story was at first a bit incoherent, but has become clearer as the series moved on. The other thing I like is the main protagonist Lena/Ley. She's smart, talented, a bit cold and aloof. She's also realistic, seeing a slave beaten by her master she walks away saying she wont get involved and attract attention to herself. She's also not unbeatable as she gets captured a few times. This is a refreshing change from all those mangas with heros or heroines who want to save everyone and have a plucky or perky attitude.

Also around volume 5 there is a big upgrade in the artwork, the characters are more refined and more easily differentiated. There is more detail. The author also seems to have discovered their funny bone and some humor gets thrown in. My advice is that you need to stick with the series for at least 10-15 chapters and then it will start to pay off.

Its a decent series with a strong main character, but no way this is a 9 or 10 series.

I would love to give this manga a 10/10 but the characters are very bland and somewhat emotionally unrealistic. Even the lesser characters were more engaging and alive. Overall the plot and art is just amazing and stunning!

Confusing, but good

The only thing I have to complain about is the pacing, especially in the early part of the manhwa. Twenty or so chapters in, the story settles down and the plot starts to roll, but in the beginning it's confusing as anything and there were a whole ton of characters.

That said, however, it's a good read! It gets better and better as the story goes on, and now I'm actually quite hooked. Lena is tough; and I mean she's mentally tough. Most mangas endear the protagonist to the reader through the protagonists' sense of compassion, but Lena doesn't do that: she has good sense, she's ruthless, and she's good. It's an interesting thing to see.

INCEST IN MANGAS/MANHWAS

WTFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!! what is seriously wrong with these fu&*&ing shitty authors?? Do they get boners off incest themes or something?? The story line is awesome but the whole incest thing between brother and sister is like a bitch slap. I just can't stomach it and I dont understand how alot of people can just ignore it.

I absolutely love this series. I'm not a big fan of manwha but I loved this one from the beginning. I'm finding it a lot easier to follow than most manwhas. It has everything you could want in a good shoujo. an interesting plot, a strong heroine (rather than those annoying whiney, weak ones ones that tend to ruin the whole story), and amazing art... and of course, gender bending :] Unlike a lot of gender benders where the main character gets caught early in the series, Lena is doing rather well hiding her identity so far... Although I'm still fairly early in the series :/

I'm also liking it more because, so far, it isn't too squishy with overly dramatic characters proclaiming their undying love for each other every 15 pages :] (okay, that's a slight exaggeration...)

It's a longer series, but definitely worth the time spent reading.

One of the best Shoujo mangas!

Okay although I said shoujo-it's korean...but you know what I mean..

I have very few shoujo mangas that I like and even few shoujo-korean mangas, but when I say this is one AWESOME manga-it's awesome~~ahh^^^

Lenna aka Ley is one strong badass cool female character. Of course there's action in this series as well. Out of all the male characters I like Sena the best-but Ley is still the best!!

FINALLY, a shoujo style historical adventure that doesn't make me feel ashamed for my gender

Ley is seriously badass, and actually a bit of the tsundere type. No sparkle-eyes or brimming tears here. I like that Lucian isn't the prince-charming kind of King -- he's possessive and aggressive. Michael is my favorite love interest, rather unorthodox. It would be similar to if Ageha was a love interest in Basara. Anyway, if you liked Legend of Nereid's more unpredictable formula, but also enjoyed Basara and Red River, I think you'd really like this one. So far, it's my favorite out of all four!

if you have time to read this, read Basara instead

If you like this manhwa, you're better off reading Basara which has better character developments and a stronger story, and definitely more awesome illustrations.

The characters in Saver are really bland, even the heroine. none The plot is predictable and there isn't really anything special here. It's like it's trying too hard to have an impact on its audience, but all the notes it's hitting are just still shallow.
