In 18th century England, Gabriel, an orphan girl from a fallen noble family befriended a young man named Jeremy, who was rumored to be an illegitimate child of a nobleman. After an incident occurred, resulting in his tragic death, Gabriel must impersonate her friend Jeremy, taking his place at an all boys academy for nobles, a place that may seem like heaven to others, but really hides a harshness which she would never have imagined.

Joshua Anyone?

Am I the only one here liking Joshua more and more? LOL. I really like Jeremy/Gabriel and hope that she doesn't die since the tag includes tragedy. I hope it isn't some kind of like, " you pay for killing the real Jeremy" kind of thing. It might be her retribution for wanting a life of luxury, but I hope she gets a happy ending. I really wanted her to be with Ray before, but now I"m rooting for Joshua. I think that he'll be able to accept Jeremy/Gabriel as a girl and like her for who she is inside.

the art and storytelling reminds me a bit of Midorikawa Yuki's work and a bit of Bride of the Water God. The art is sort of sketch-like and the storytelling exudes a dreamlike atmosphere and is a bit dark and mysterious. And unlike other gender benders, the heroine's reason for impersonating her friend, Jeremy, is sad and dark. She is an introvert rather than an extrovert and has strong principles of what is right and noble and what is wrong. She isn't there to change things and make everything wonderful and good, but rather she is just trying to survive the dark underbelly of nobility.

I like this series, i find it different - in a very good way - from the mangaka's other stuff. No angsty incest like in Flower of Evil... errr just some very complex love triangles lol. I love it though! I know the whole girl-pretends-to-be-guy-goes-to-school idea is soooo overdone, but this cross-dresser, Gabriel, is original and very likeable!! Plus there's a lot of nobles/rich people drama, set in the Victorian times. Very interesting. And any romance here is built on subtly and slowly... I'm biting my nails waiting for more chapters.

In the beginning, I was a bit confused because of the way that everyone was introduced. Even then I was hooked. This manhwa is the most beautiful, dark and complex that I've read so far. I absolutely love Lee Hyeon-Sook's works.

I love this manhwa; the dark, "dreamy" artwork is the best of any manhwa i've ever read, the story is intriguing and the characters and their personalities are well portrayed. I especially like that Jeremy/Gabriel hasn't been found out yet, and that the boys who are interested in her are falling for Jeremy - 'him'. I hope it'll be a long while yet until she is found out. Can't wait for more chapters of this amazing series, and I *bow* to the scanlators who are providing us with this.

Wow, this is so far the most intriguing and addicting gender bender I've read out of all manhwa that is. Its has a very promising plot that keeps getting better and better every chapter. I love how the relationship gets tangled up and the characters are so distinct from each other.A big plus is the gorgeous art which is very consistent and proportional. I hope it'll be a long series.

LEE Hyeon-Sook's new work! So far, the story is very interesting and the art is beautiful.
I am really happy to find a gender bender manhwa that is not cheesy!

I never really get into a Korean manga since most of them tend to be fast paced and pointless. But this one is amazing. The art is quite unique too. It seems like this manga takes place in England or Wales maybe? Not really accurate but I love it none the less!! It's a great read!! I'm hoping for Jeremy/Gabriel x Raymond!!!!!

I read practically the entire thing (except the last volume) in one sitting. I loved it, I loved the twisted nature of it, the plot thickenings, the flawed characters, the angst. Of course, the plot mover was more about the relationship(s) she had more so than an actual goal. Nevertheless, I still liked Gabriel (I normally don't like shoujo heroines). This is more of a suit-my-needs kind of manga than an excellent story. It was fascinating, but not necessarily the best thing out there. Sometimes I prefer things that are exactly my cup of tea rather than read stuff I must learn to stomach and get on with its idealistic natures.

If you like twisted plotlines, you should read this. Definitely. Also, the artwork is fantastic!

P.S.: The only reason I didn't give it a total 9 is because I loved how original this gender bender (this genre tends to be overly cliche) is. The reason I didn't give it a 9.5 is because the ending was drab. Was I content? Yes. Was I expecting something amazing? Yes. The ending was anticlimactic, it could ruin some people's perspective of the manhwa as a whole, but it didn't necessarily ruin mine. I preferred the journey.

I love the story, and i can't guess who she will end up with... well, i do like Euan better.
I reread over and over again, and still excited!
can't wait for the next chapter, unfortunately this is a new release manhwa, so i can't rush my 'need' to read more of Savage Garden.... i must wait every month for the latest issue patiently... but it's really worth waiting.
Two thumbs up!
