All Charlize Ronan ever wanted was to bring honor to her family. But instead, she is forced into becoming a “living sword” -- a mere tool for the emperors. It is from this hell that she prays for justice… and awakens in her former body. Now, determined to tear down this horrible empire, Charlize seeks out the young prince, Dylan Blade. She will put him on the throne, not as an honorable ruler, but as a tyrant. It is time for Charlize to tame the one who will bring forth her revenge.

Inconsistent Plot and Premise

She's a gifted swordsman, fairy, genius, and beautiful AF. And despite the author making her an OP Mary Sue, she wasn't talented enough, magical enough, smart enough, charming enough to get out of the situation she was in her first life😕😕 Seems like she is only talented and a genius when its convenient for the plot

Not gonna rate this yet bc the available scanlated chapters (40 chapters worth) are really just setting up what the series' summary is promising.

But so far, this seems like it's a really good villain-destruction story. There is some deus ex machina here and there (like the fairies and that a lot of things MC can't possibly influence--that we know of--change in ways to always benefit her), but the crux of the story/plot is well thought out and the the MC's and ML's character and relationship development plays well (including their descent into villainy).

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I think the story does a good job in portraying how the MC and ML were unfavorites:

MC's father can't handle MC's mom's death via childbirth and his rotten attitude directly influenced his sons'.

ML is the 13th prince of a physically and positionally weak consort and has a psycho, power-hungry father, along with pretty ambitious children fighting for the throne (considering all of the crimes and assassination attempts going on). So, he has no status or familial love that can protect him growing up, especially after his mom dies.

And their strengths are (mostly) understandable:

MC is a gifted swordswoman, which is what got her turned into the kingdom's emperors' sword in the first place. So, 400yrs of experience and thirst for vengeance, while being raised by the kingdom's emperors' side throughout the centuries, are enough for me to see why she's so OP when she returns, especially as she retains the powers from those 400yrs of conquest and fighting. And it explains why her morality remains twisted.

ML is just a born OP though, but the story mostly focuses on MC and her revenge, so he's mostly been treated as a tool for her (both in-story and for her character for us readers). But as we start to see when he deviates from MC's careful nurturing, he seems to be developing as his own character more (at least, his side of the story gets more interesting).

But there are some points I have problems with:

The thing about the MC being part fae is not explained well though and seems more like a throw-away plot piece, only used for giving her a disguise and a means to escape later. I say throw-away, bc I have no doubt that she ultimately wouldn't need this to do either things it was used for thus far. That's why I'm hoping the fairy thing gets a better story later; otherwise, there was really no need for it.

Also, it was weird with how the things she can't possible influence end up going her way anyways. Like how the ML's mother's dying message changed exactly to allow MC the chance to make the ML a tyrant or how her former fiance also received his past memories but it's also treated as another throw-away plot piece--he doesn't really do anything but give support in their rebellion, but he actually wasn't needed for his part either. Or that the king so happen to have the only herb in the world to help ML's mother or that MC was able to find a hidden family heirloom in a mountain range within 15dys.

But main point is that this seems to be building up to be a proper villain story, where we ultimately aren't supposed to be rooting for the MC at the end, or at least, she doesn't get that fairytale, or even normal, HE. And I hope that this is where the story goes.

I have mixed feelings about this one.
One one hand, I like how the author doesn't just repeat the cliché of an innocent woman becoming a villainess and adapting, he instead portrays an innocent girl that's broken and actually becomes the villainess of her own accord.
On the other hand, the hole became a sword plot and the having killed her own mother setting are quite dumb and poorly thought. Let's ignore all the flaws of how it's presented and take at face value that she became a sword with her own will, she follows the 1st emperor's orders out of fear of him killing her family, what about the rest? she served for 400 years, why does she still comply? As for the killing the mother part... this is the late middle-ages or renaissance, death of the mother while giving birth is a very common occurrence, are all kids born in such a way monsters? I'm more inclined to believe it would be a normal thing. Even if her father resents her, that the whole country ostracizes her for it is kind of ridiculous.
Other positive is that the manhwa is not afraid of taking it's time to develop and doesn't rush things as often happens with adaptation. It's a slow pace but deliberate and save for the first two chapters, it results in a cohesive story.
So far it's mildly good, it's one of those stories which might be great or terribly boring.

OP But Not Bad

The female lead is so overpowered, but that is usually the case when reading something published by Kakao. Does the OP nature of the characters diminish the reading experience? I don't think so. Because she is OP, the plot just seamlessly moves on. Its suppose to be a romance, so I expect that though the FL is OP, we will see its not very important for the romance portion of the story. (Which honestly has not even started, yet. I'm currently on chapter 21).

On the other hand, I think the narration sequences do diminish the story. Narrator explains things that sometimes would have been better to seen drawn. Besides that, you are reading a nice romance about two OP leads falling in love.

If you're curious if you like it or not, why not just read till chapter 21? Maybe you'll like it. 🤷

I want to be merciful on the rating but I don't think I can

Please take note that I haven't read the novel, so I truly have no idea about the spoiler. This is purely based on my experience of reading the manhwa for 20 chapters.

I rarely judge quickly on manhwa and made a review about it just based on 20 early chapters. But I'm gonna make a special case for this one. This manhwa had a good premise.... but the whole premise shattered into billion pieces of disaster and utterly incomprehensible plot building. I once read the promo manhwa a long time ago, and the promo was just promo, it only gave quick snippets of the story so I cannot dive into the emotional building on the plot. and the manhwa came out for real, with fantastic illustration, who will resist reading it? And then I read it. Oh, the premise was good: the girl who was turned into a living sword for the prosperity of the empire... but after the first chapter, the premise fell out quickly. It was purely a story of riding a mary-sue c*ck.

The main characters are the bandwagon of mary-sue ness. Actually, it's okay for a character to have some mary-sue aspects, but this story was so blatantly proud of being so mary-sue that I felt becoming more and more apathetic to the miserable Charlize Ronan. For a character with 400 years of history, I applaud her for not ever having a shift of morality or mindset. Yes, she had, but it wasn't on an equal level of someone 400+ years old. Her shift of morality and mindset of being tortured etc felt like a shift of mindset a teenager had come out of the teenage phase. And her narration didn't help in sculpting her characterization that supposed to be the no.1 miserable creature of the century. Her narration purely narcissistic, she was so self-aware of how OP and great she is.
Also, don't get me on the points where her character is so over buffed:
1. Half-faerie
2. The greatest swordsman in the empire
3. Had mana level of Godlike after time travel into 400 years before her misery began.
4. Smart af

Am I supposed to feel sorry for her? with all of those qualities I'm pretty sure she didn't need to waste time on revenge, just destroy the empire quick and clean.

And then we came into the main plot... oh boy, plot holes are unavoidable... but this story was very direct at telling you to not use logic. Becoming a tutor of a prince... who only had one year gap. I don't think any weak kingdom ever existed would so blatant on being nonsense when it came to prince's education. Surely she made the status of an honorary knight but she was still young and she wasn't proven to be eligible enough to be a tutor. I got a headache because I accidentally using logic when reading the plot build up.

Okay, let's scrap up the confusing build-up, let's jump on the ML. In short, it doesn't get better. The ML is as gary-stu as the FL. I give up. Both of the characters had a flaw and the author milked it to her content. Their mary-sue aspects are justified to the core, and the plot is moved according to their own benefits.

The positive note that I have for this manhwa? The author had a good premise but only with that, it's not enough. I get the idea of the author's points, but she was awful at building it. Also, great illustration.
