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

I love it, and most of that stems from my love for the female lead. She's amazing, personality wise and in terms of strength. Just- the ending, Eh. And also, why isn't their a "androgynous female lead" category in Baka updates? It fits here hah.

Marathoned this series for a night and half a day. That's why I hate revenge and war-themed stories. There's ALWAYS those super annoying people who are obviously tools of war, and the other annoying people who are just there to pester me until the end. You can never stop reading because you want to see everyone get what's coming to them :/ and even then, I'm not satisfied. Lena saves the series though, she is one of the best heroines I have ever seen. Not even love can stop this lady! smile

Haha, even though I sound super pissed off I actually liked this. Would have liked an epilogue though.

Amen to that.

The end of the manhwa is basically SCREAMING "Yeah, yeah, we got axed ! Life is a b*tch."

So here you go, what could have been an awesome development on 4 or 5 volumes became a 2-chapters-long sprint. I didn't know it had been axed before I read it, so I was basically thinking WTF IS HAPPENING during the whole last volume. And I'm still thinking it's too bad. It could have been great till the end.

Regarding the rest of the story, I think it was fairly good. Not mindblowing, but very enjoyable. And, honestly, the heroin is kinda epic, and totally refreshing...
Damn ! I was actually looking forward to the new releases when I was reading it. Damn you manhwa-axing-committees ! (whatever that may be...)

It's an interesting story. I enjoyed the characters, and the main storyline. Mainly had problems with the art and character development.

There's definitely no lack of bishounen/bishoujo in this manga, and they are all drawn very well. But... they all look the same. Everyone had pretty much the same facial structure/eyes. The only thing that changed were the clothes and the hairstyle. This made it very difficult to follow the plot, especially when the main group was travelling and encountering new characters on a chapterly basis.

The other thing that I disliked about the manga was the lack of character development. They had very distinctive and interesting personalities, but once you find out their backstory, that's it. There's no real growth. The antagonists just seemed plain evil, so it's also very hard to identify with them.

Overall, an interesting enjoyable read, especially if you like bishies.

Ley/Lena was FANTASTIC. She is without a doubt one of the best characters I have ever read about. I cannot truly enjoy a manga when the lead character is a blithering idiot. Lena is the oposite end of the spectrum. While she was, at times, a bit too all-knowing, she was exactly what I needed to find a reason to continue reading manga as a genre. If you are disgusted with the incredibly stupid shojo girls, this is the manga for you.

Sadly, the plot does leave something to be desired. This is the kind of manga that you love BECAUSE of a character, not because of the plot. It's a perfect break from mangas that I love DESPITE the god-awful characters.

Good read but little romance. The ending isn't that much of a let down because it's like your typical fairy tail leaving things up to your imagination. Lucien and Lena make an interesting couple but their romance isn't really the focus of this story; however, it has a well thought out story behind it that is hard to stop reading once you start. Len/Lena is one of the best female protagonist I've ever encountered.

A brilliant female lead who should be used as a base for other mangakas.

I would've liked an extra chapter at the end. One that rounded everything off, that told you a bit about all the characters' lives after the war had ended and what they were doing. Most of all I would've liked to see more of Ley and Lucien after they got together.
Ley at the beginning is tough; she's cold, cool and know's what she's doing. She's ruthless and doesn't help others if that would harm her, which is a refreshing and realistic change from the heroine who likes to help everyone. Her character stays that same throughout the manga and for that I am glad.
After reading the comments I was expecting the ending to be really rushed. It was but it didn't really ruin the whole novel.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I thought how the author ended the series, with Ley going back to our world and letting go of her feelings of revenge and her love for her half-brother-turned-not was good. It meant that when she decided the stay in the other world it was a peaceful decision and one that was not forced or heart-rendering. And overall I liked how it was done.
