This webtoon is the best example of how a powerful narrative can perfectly build the mood without breaking the point of view. The way Ebony contemplates her fate and the way she convinces herself to make decisions seems full of considerations. I've always liked original webtoons without being wordy about taking adaptations from a fanfic-level novel. It's really hard. Therefore the skill shown by this author is extraordinary even at her speed, I'm sure that I will continue to be satisfied even if the long process is made into many arcs or seasons. Ebony is that masterpiece.

Back to the story, Ebony becomes a figure of how a woman whose self-esteem has fallen, is willing to fight for her right to life for crimes she never committed. The character development is great and you personally feel you truly appreciate the process, then romance. I have a soft spot on a relationship between the master and the servant, but Duke Schneider's attitude as a guardian is aware of that limitation. A distance, an honor exists. They need each other. Their chemistry runs without drama above covenants. How Ebony approaches her growing feelings for Duke Schneider is sincere, same goes to Duke himself. You get the serious part when it's needed, its romantic subtleness at the right moment without rushing it until you're addicted to asking for more doesn't upset the balance. Ebony is a mature woman and Duke is a man who sticks to his acts and words. Their combination in solving problems is attractive without generating unhealthy gossip. You know like a circus master and a shrewd thief? They come in the name of social justice!

The first season is full of legal talk and incredible transformation. I absolutely can't wait what kind of surprises Ebony will show to us. I seriously truly love this webtoon with all my heart.

How is this so good?

It's rare to find a series that moves people these days...I genuinely felt for the female lead, Ebony. There were times where you're sad for her, frustrated for her, happy for her, etc. Honestly, it was so refreshing to read. Both leads are very level headed...they don't make rash decisions and the plot is WRITTEN SO WELL.

I thought it would play out with another damsel in distress and some cliche royal/noble man swooping in to save the day, and I was ready to roll my eyes, but boy was I wrong! You can see Ebony gain confidence, grow and build real friendships. I love that there's a crime solving/mystery subplot to this. I'm also glad the romance budding was done organically and not something that took over the plot - it stayed more in the background for a big chunk of the first arc.

There's so much potential and I'm excited to see where this leads. Big questions are: why did Dante, the archduke, become her guardian/benefactor? Was it as simple as he made it out to be? Seems like he has bigger plans for her...and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
just what is with this magic aspect of the story?! How will they explain the granny with magic powers? Does the archduke have these powers too? Seems like he did when he put her to sleep and that other time she floated from the 2nd floor.

I totally recommend it! It's a gem.

P.S. it starts to get really good around chapter 40 and on, so buckle up!

@ johaneskrauserII

Fuchsia isn't time skip, the first season of ebony already ended in march. Apparently the second season is already started, considering rawdevart up the raw chapter 42.

This webtoon is have a great story. I love how the archduke guiding ebony to have more self confidence and become the revolutionary figure for all woman in the kingdom. It's truly moved me how big the changes in ebony from the self-blamed and shaming herself to more confidence and charming young lady.

@ fuchsia:

"I've read until ch 40 (season 1) and I've said this is the best isekai manhwa I've read."--

the last chapter is 34. There has not been an update since March. Did you time skip? And it is NOT isekai but historical. Nowhere in the manwha did it state the MC came from our world etc. Are you confused?

@ 50thhokage

"but also very sad. Prepare for tears."

Huh? It's a political/historical series. Not once did I cry lol. It's actually inspirational that the title MC got her confidence back in life due to the archduke. If not, she would have rot in jail.

Going back, it's in my top 10. But the "real" MC is the archduke who uses the title MC to win political games. If you like stories where the MC'S (that's plural) out-think their enemies by moving chess pieces across the board, using their brains more than the sword, this is one of them. This is a thinking man's manwha./manga. I hope they dont drop this.

I've read until ch 40 (season 1) and I've said this is the best isekai manhwa I've read. It's unique because the theme of this mahwa is woman emancipation that's quite rare to see. The MC ebony is a strong, independent, intelligent and interesting woman. She got really great character development from gloomy girl into pleasing girl. The ML archduke is great too. The romance is slow but addicting. You must read it

Let me start out by saying that this is really good, but I would hold off on reading it until it has atleast 10 chapters. Very good start to story, but also very sad. Prepare for tears.
