Description
I woke up as Kayena Hill, the novel’s villainess, praised as the greatest beauty in the empire. Who knew that her story would catch my attention because I was her in my past life? Destined for terrible ends, I’ve died twice—but I refuse to die a third time as a pawn in someone else’s scheme. I’m no longer the vain and naïve princess. Now that I know how the story will unfold, I’ll turn the tables around and have everyone dancing to my tune. This time, I’ll be the one pulling the strings.

Read the novel!

Totally agree with RAGApeace. Having read the novel, I don't think the manhwa compares favourably. It's very beautiful, but it's slower and less substantial which really damages Kayena's position and character. We just don't see as much depth to her in the manhwa, which is a real shame, because she is an incredible character to follow and support. Compare this to the adaptation of The Villainess Lives Twice, for example, which is much stronger because Tia and the characters around her are fleshed out deliberately using the manhwa format, and because the artists take full advantage of panels and other visual cues to add to a sense of pace, and even to foreshadow. It's very unfortunate that the manhwa for Marionette doesn't match what made the novel so excellent.

Watched a lot of time rewind Manhwa and it was the most boring, pathetic, dumb ever read. Even in untouchable lady it takes her 7 iterations to be cunning and smart.

Here goes the ultra dumb ML who lust for FL with just some friendly gestures it's like his mysophopie vanished with a handshake from Fl.
It's sucks to waste good art on super bad plot.
What a tragedy!

Top tier art, but...

Dropped ch.38
The art is beautiful, but pretty much nothing of note has happened in nearly 40 chapters.. It's ended up style over substance. Following week by week certainly doesn't help the pacing. Characters are also way to simpy to the FL compared to what they should be given the first timeline.

Overpowered FL doesn't make it bad

Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
This story falls victim to FL knows the future because she read the book, but the author never gives her any actual skills or personality outside of knowing the future even after 23 chapters. She is technically an overpowered protagonist and as long as you understand that or don't mind that, the story is enjoyable.

You get to watch her exploit her knowledge of the future and turn everyone into puppets. Sort of a if I knew what I knew now back then, then I would have done this instead sort of scenario. The pacing is nice, the art is pretty and overall I plan to see where this story goes.

So addicting

The art is GOD TIER, and the story is just as enticing.
The female lead is amazing, she’s everything I love : intelligent, manipulative, level headed, always one step ahead... She’s not Medea from I want to be you, just for a day mind you (nobody is on her level haha) but still Cayena is very charismatic. Their goals are completely different though, while Medea wants the throne, Cayena only wants peace and freedom. Cayena is sweet and gentle deep inside, she’s a villainess because of her circonstances, and I love how she’s doing everything she can to escape her fate. I also love how Cayena supports other women in this, I long for great female friendships/partnerships. Speaking of which, the other characters are very interesting as well, even the male leads. The plot seems very intricate, I can’t wait to read more 🙏🏻🙏🏻

This webtoon has equal amounts of eyecandy (beautiful dresses, people and background) AND Court intrigue. The best this is the pacing and how the author delivers the court intrigue. It's suspenseful instead of 12-year-old girl's idea of what court intrigue should be.

Read the Novel

It's a novel adaptation, so the pacing isn't the best and it leaves out a lot of information, so readers are likely to get lost or will have questions over things that should have been answered early on. Readers can still follow the story well enough, but it's best read in its novel version, which fully fleshes out the details, characters, and plot in a steady and easy-to-follow pacing. I don't recommend reading the manhwa by itself, but instead, as a way to enhance your enjoyment of the story after reading the novel version.
