Hideously boring and frustrating. The plot doesn't seem to know where it's going. Maybe it's just because I'm not really a yaoi/shounen-ai fan, but I really couldn't get into this.

The ending was just as boring and anticlimactic as the rest of the shoujo and it will leave you scratching your head. Absolutely nothing is accomplished in this story. The whole thing felt like an excuse to write a boylove story about old England.

Okay, if the story was "ongoing" and I was still anxiously awaiting the author to continue it since she went on Hiatus (make-believe okay), then I would rate this a 12 out of 10.

But, the final chapter literary speaking brought down the rating by 4 points. Horrid ending!!!! At least Flowers of Evil felt like an ending - though rushed. This one is stupid, EXTREMELY rushed and unconnected. Almost like the author just wanted to move on without giving this otherwise fantastic title another second.

Too bad...

So I have to say that I am completely satisfied =] OMG This was amazing!! When I had read Flowers of Evil I was upset that there wasn't a happier ending, but I'm glad that there was this time. Though I read comments about Euan, I can't say I agreed with them. He wasn't really a bad person at all!! I loved Jeremy/Grabriel.. So glad that things turned out well for her. But who would've thought that things would be like that!! Still don't understand Angela or Yvonne. But whatever. A must read. Go Now!!

I read Flowers of Evil and fell in love with the entire story, the art, the whole package.
I was expecting WAY more when I read this, especially since it's a more recent work. The beginning started off nicely, a little bit of comedy really worked for it.

Around the time Gabriel went to their villa though....that's when things got weird. All the guys liked her.....but...some of them liked her as a guy and some as a girl, I was so confused what was going on. Death and chase scenes were here and there, I don't really understand the motivation for a lot of the stuff going on at all. Also, I think towards the end, there was way too much focus on the story that I became way disconnected with the characters. joke, I actually began seeing her as a guy because she didn't have personality and looked like any other guy in the manhwa. This manhwa is just so messy, and the story is really kind of up and down. I'm sorry, but the art is literally the only redeeming quality.

i know i shouldn't expect any roses from this mangaka, but i thought things will be all-right but it is just some-right.
the art is very breathtakingly beautiful, it lend more weight to the drama that is unfolding. however, there's a very large plot hole that did not get explained, which is concerning how this thing started in the first place. so, eventhough this manhwa is engrossing, at the end there's just nagging feelings that left me unable to be completely immersed in the story. however, still worth a read as its is the characters emotions that is important, not the storyline itself that carry this manhwa.

This one kept me clinging to my chair like there was no tomorrow! It's great, it's tragic, dramatic, very fulfilling! Definitely recommended! Oh yeah, Flowers of Evil (same Mangaka) is great, too!

I enjoyed this a lot. It was really twisty, with lots of cliffhangers spread throughout. I liked this a lot more than Flowers of Evil; I didn't feel super alienated from most of the characters. I do disagree with some of the comments being made here though.

First off,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
@La: I think Gabriel's past wasn't mentioned because it wasn't important to the story. Her past with the real Jeremy WAS important though, so the author showed that in the story. No matter what Gabriel's past was, it makes no difference in the outcome of the story. As for the duchess, she had to make a move already. Gabriel was going to escape to America. And I think from the scene between the duchess and the husband that all the blackmailing stuff she did actually paid off to piss her husband off, so she pretty much fulfilled what she wanted to do in the first place.

@Reika_StaR: I actually thought that Euan's death had more emotional impact because he avoided death on the train. It was a huge shocker to see him get killed just like that when had just narrowly avoided death just moments ago(also somewhat depressing).

In general though, I found Euan's death to be a bit fitting...this is a dark story. Nobody seems really, really happy. It makes sense that someone would eventually...die. It's depressing, yes, and I'm certain that Euan didn't want to die just yet. But at least he found peace somehow. And I'm glad that Angela finally grew up after she had kids. She allowed Ray to meet Gabriel again, which was great(and almost made up for the fact that Euan died).

On a side note, I found Joshua's character to be really useless. What was he there for, except for the plot obstacle when Gabriel tried to step in to keep Joshua from killing the horse? Pretty useless, since he doesn't really do anything except play the "I'm-super-in-love-with-Jeremy" role for the rest of the series. This is probably also true of Arron. I guess the friends characters were created just to create more problems for Gabriel?

I also found the subplot of Yvonne and Will to be kind of...weird. It explains why Angela's such a douche and why Yvonne was sleeping with Euan(?). But we never get to see what happens to that pairing(most likely, Yvonne didn't get to see Will and Will dies, but I like to imagine that they saw each other in his last moment and things were happy for a split second).

Anyway, I thought this was pretty interesting in terms of the characters. They seem to be pretty multi-dimensional. Plot-wise, it gets a bit old at times, but I think it goes rather decently.

Bad Ending

Putting aside the art I actually thought this story had more potential for plot development than the author's previous work Flower of Evil. However, the ending was a disappointment because she left so many unresolved issues.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
We never found out about Gabriel's past before she became an orphan and Joshua was just left hanging at the end as well as the Duchess. In my opinion, the whole blackmailing thing the Duchess was doing against Gabriel was weak. It all fell apart when the Duchess gave up her goal leaving a mediocre plot/ending.

The story leaves a lot of things unresolved, but in an era where nobles played around with others' lives and one's class meant more in society than anything else, it was not surprising that justice wasn't dealt. In fact, it was a believable end considering who the characters in the story were.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yes, Euan died. But the way that he'd been playing around with women and men, he was bound to get killed by someone's husband or wife. It was unfortunate timing and I'm not sure if he was even having an affair with that particular duchess, but the story did bring up the possibility of him dying due to his playboy habits in chapter 1. And for people that were expecting Jeremy and Ray to end up married and happy, it's Victorian Era England, that just doesn't happen between commoners and nobles. They do end up together - with Gabriel as Ray's mistress - and that's the only way it could have believably happened.

I really liked the end, it was believable and yet satisfying in its own way. While there was a lot of angst in the story, considering how messed up their lives were, it was well done. Overall, I give it an 8.5/10 (the art is great, it's deep and suspenseful, but it's not quite a masterpiece).
