One of the Best Female Leads!   
Rating: N/A

This will be a rant, full of love, don't mind this.

D'AWWWWW LENA IS ONE OF MY MOST SPECTACULAR FEMALE LEADS EVER!! It's such a gem to find her in this manga(manhwa- whatever) world where stereotype characters and cliched plot takes place! I'm so damn tired of reading the same thing over and over again, and this one is such a breath in of fresh air! Saver reminds me so much of Basara, which is also good biggrin
I love the characters here! They're so funny, emotional, and has a change of heart, this story has driven all of my undying emotions hidden inside of me, I love Michael, Lucien, Shine, Cid, Sean, Sheris and many other characters involved in the story, they practically had a role in this, not just plotholes nor fillers to stretch the story for useless backstories and flashbacks, and the twists! Oh God I love them!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Although I would say the ending is a bit of a disappointment, I was expecting for a grand (swords)fight between the btchy queen and Ley but it's okay, as long as she rots in hell :D the last chapter was also rushed, Ley shows less emotions here and full of monologues inside her head, she could atleast smile a bit more because she finally came back to Lucien right? She was like 'hell yeah I'm back bitches' and so on so forth.

DESPITE THAT! I still love this masterpiece! I don't regret wasting my 36 hours for reading this instead of studying for my finals(lol I became a slowpoke while reading Saver) although I wish for the manhwa-ka to add at least one bonus chapter or something just to show Lena and Lucien's progression and the other characters progression after the last war,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and even better, a cute wedding and a child to bear! I want to see Lucien and Lena's child in the future! Maybe an energetic boy or a split image of Lena who also loves to do Kendo!

Awww I'll miss Saver, one of the best manhwas ever!

The scanlations for the first few chapters are not the best, but they get better. Also, the first three chapters are just the background for the main character, past that the story is completely different. This is one of my favorite Shoujo and has a similar feel as Basara.

Not my favorite. The build up was so slow..same with the romance. You never actually connect with the characters. They literally float by you. Sorry but this one was quite boring :/

The Michael, the Count, Lucien, and the Leon tribe were so beautiful. What if PLOT TWIST: Michael was someone from the Leon tribe? I wish there were more romance. It took forever for Lucien and Lena to meet.

Much potential but ultimately mediocre. Worth the read for a badass female lead

I honestly fell in love with the female lead here. I found myself relating to her and above all, admiring her ruthless attitude, strength, and charisma, but heartbreakingly, the story lacked meaning and the pacing of the story was a bust. I read it all though. I was frustrated midway but kept at it till the end.

At the beginning it felt as if this was about her overcoming her fears, her anger towards her family, and about growing into a more appreciative person, but the story didn't fully explore this. the mangaka, at some point, began simply conveying the events, neglecting the portrayal of the relationships in the story and the main characters feelings and values. It started to feel very Anatolia Story-like, where the political scheme became the bulk of the story. This was pretty awful for the most part. My point is, although things were developing plot wise, all the meaningful aspects of the story just stopped being explored. It's disappointing since there were many developments that could've been covered. Especially the romance, which seemed more like a sub-plot. I don't want to sound whiny here but the mangaka started a romance, teased the readers, and never developed it. i have reason to complain.

It's a good manhwa with a good plot and all but have to admit that I found it rather boring at times. Like it just seemed like it was dragging on too much about something in particular and then it seemed to hardly pay attention to other parts. I would've liked more on the modern world part as it feels like the author just totally forgot about it and then in the last chapter go "Ah there was a modern world in this story, I need to include it to finish the story!" and half-heartedly threw it in. I felt that there wasn't enough character development and a lot of the time I got confused on who someone was.

After all my complaints I still liked it though especially Lena/Ley!!! And also her friends and companions! I sort of wished that Lena would end up with Michael though...The story has its flaws but its still a nice story to read that I enjoyed. The art is also quite good and pretty.

In a fantastical epic sort of way. I think you have to really like war plot stories sorta like Red River but with a lot less romance. I don't really think that was he best manga to compare it to but it was one of the first to pop into my head in comparison. Idk It's ending is pretty good I just wish it was less open ended concerning the main characters and what happens to them.

Initially, I found the story to be heading in a weird direction(her 'modern' life) but when the story developed, it was really great and everything. But I personally felt that the ending was indeed rushed.. And I also wanted to see the King's and Lena's love blossoming... After all it's still a romance and shoujo(?) manhwa...

A Potential Favorite

Really liked this story. It was hard for me to start it because it's just so dense but in the end I feel like I went on a long and rewarding journey with all its quirky characters.

With the best main points I can give, it's pretty heavily laden with war (inclusive of countless fights and killings, but not gory) with a medieval-ish time setting. There are quite a few characters and it can get a bit confusing if you're not on top of things. The mood is pretty dark during times of conflict but there's enough positive/comic relief to level it out a little - it is semi-realistic in showing elements of torture/consequences. However, the plot itself was pretty amazing, I was phenomenally surprised with how much things made sense. I really did not expect much from a seemingly simple story centered around a "prophecy" and fate. Also the romance is really subtle, I was waiting for it forever but it comes in very tiny gestures and mostly towards the end (so don't worry it's still there - it gets cut short though :\). And I did like how it ended even though it was rushed. Rather than disappointing me, it just made me sad that I had completed it. Last thing - The female lead was great and one of the best, as people have mentioned. Truly a strong character, one that I think should be an iconic hero of strength, skill and a determined/calm mentality - and I think it means a lot more that she's a girl and has androgynous beauty. She's also just plain bad-ass.

I consider this a potential classic because it was just so elaborate and unique. I recommend it if you're up for adventure and don't mind a lot of action. This is a quality gender-bender smile
