Really good story and the pace is excellent. The regretful thing is just bc the ending is just-like-that.. like, after huge climax it just "the end". But overall, I enjoyed it. Thank you for making this amazing manhwa!

The story went from funny romantic balanced with tense drama and an isekai twist to
how many too-powerful, hardly-seen, only useful to make the plot unnecessarily convoluted characters can you stomach?

Straight from 9 to a 6, I felt the story to be fairly unfinished, rushed at points and having unnecessary twists / justifications with truly annoying and lacking in screen-time characters.

Okay, this story in my opinion is cute.

The plot is okay, not too bad and not too good either. I feel like something is missing, I like the first season but I feel like season 3-4 is a bit rushed. Some mystery remained unsolved and it was a bit confusing, especially the ending.

To be honest, I quite like Raeliana’s character development but it needs more depth. And we don’t get much of Noah’s character development, I feel like they wasted Noah and the King’s backstory even though you can explore more.

I actually gave it a 9, because I enjoyed the plot but I can’t say that it’s one of my favs nor it’s good to the point that I recommend it. I def recommend this for avid readers though, but ig light readers can also enjoy their romance.

This one's not a masterpiece, but it is well executed. Just all around worth your time.
Perhaps it could've done with a faster pace, but even so, it's not that long.
There's not too much more to say. It really is just pretty good. XD

I read this once before and got to like ch 100ish and then i got bored. I waited till it was over to binge-finish only to end up forgetting everything. So I've restarted it and now I'm at ch 73 and...just no. Like it's so promising but soooo boring. It really isn't living up to the hype.

The art is pretty (a little inconsistent sometimes but overall good). At the start, the individual characters have pretty good characterizations but the story fails to really go further. The bonds between characters are also rather weak and undeveloped.

The first 30ish chapters were good but after I peeked at reviews and the end to decide if i wanted to finish it and my answer is no. It's not my cup of tea. I dont know how to add tags and I'm not sure which exact tags are correct in this instance, but if I had known
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there was some sort of goddess/fate/destiny nonsense going on
I likely wouldnt have read this at all.

Also I don't get where the reverse harem tag came from. At ch 73, there's only been 2 real love interests so far. There's a couple of attractive side characters but they're pretty clearly just eye candy for the reader and they're not romantically interested in the FL.

Gotta give a 10/10

Okay, so the FL is pretty independent and not cliché. She is smart, and can do things by herself (she is not the type to cry easily in fact I can count how many times she cried)

The ML, okay, now this guy was her teammate, you know normally the guy saves u? Well he was actually right besides her to do it but with teammates, like she could messed up but he got her back.

The relationship: okay, so, the whole story was their romance but nothing too dramatic like he was with another girl and drama like that, no. The relationship was …I mean the guy trusted her.

Story: the plot it’s good. At some point it got me like mmmm they could fast this up, but I don’t care. The whole story has a good ending,.

Climax sucks, bad payoff

I was kept engaged and entertained by the story, because I wanted to know how things were resolved. I ignored a lot of bad signs and handwaved them. It ultimately made me feel unsatisfied and like I wasted my time. The disappointment I feel at chapter 141 makes me not want to finish it.


Agreed with many commenters here: ML/FL relationship is contrived, FL never has to work for anything, FL doesn't go through any character development, plot is overall dry, and lot of the stuff is filler. Also, a lot of story is weirdly rushed and cut off in strange places. A scene will be happening, it'll leave you on a cliffhanger, then it will cut to somewhere else on the next chapter and leave you confused, later giving you a little resolution, but nothing very satisfying.

As for the ML/FL romance, it didn't feel developed at all, and we barely get to know ML. He went from being mysterious and cunning, to being affectionate and loving suddenly?? It just made no sense character consistency wise.

I stayed for the side characters, specifically Adam, Justin and Heika. But because there are so many side characters, NOBODY gets the chance to be fleshed out.


The climax of this series (ch 141) is bad. like real bad. I skipped forward to see if it was ever addressed, but it wasn't.. It's like, the buildup is interesting, but then it all falls flat.

Basically Rae is always determined to change her fate of being killed. So that's the biggest motivator for the plot to move forward, and why she looks so cool doing stuff. That part was really interesting, but she has
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
zero sympathy for another character with a similar situation.

Then, it is made even worse (BIG SPOILER -->😉
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
that she wasn't even meant to have a death sentence after all. But she ends up lecturing that other character about changing their fate, then straight up KILLING THEM. Without a second thought or hesitation. Or maybe, I don't know, giving them a CHANCE to change their fate??? And Rae technically never had to change her own fate anyway, because she was already safe from the beginning. So it just makes everything she ever did not impressive. Nothing she did was ever worth anything.

So in the end she just looks like a
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
big ass hypocrite and heartless villain, even though the entire time everyone was happy for how nice she was to them. It just doesn't make any sense in the narrative and she ultimately looks like a HUGE tool.
I like that she's "strong and powerful" of course, but knowing what I listed above changes the entire perspective in a really bad way.

Super disappointing. I liked the ride, I want to just pretend like that ending didn't happen. Honestly though I think all of it together frankly just ruined it for me. I was looking past big issues with the story, and it just compiles together in one big shitty mess at the end.

The good:
- Female lead was smart.
- The first season was addicting.
- Art was nice.
- Raeliana and Noah had a sweet relationship.

The bad:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- It started seriously dragging in the middle. I forced myself to finish, but I wasn't happy about it.
- They should have brought in Beatrice early and made her relevant earlier on.
- I'm mad that Vivian died. I thought she was wasted potential. I actually liked her and would have preferred it if she had character growth. Instead, she became a sacrifice. Also, it's like no one cared that she died. Justin barely reacted.
- It left a bad taste in my mouth when Raeliana committed murder. I dunno, I just didn't like it.
- I didn't like the explanation for why she got isekai'd. The concept of meeting your creator bothers me.
- This webtoon would sometimes skip over scene transitions. For example, at one point Raeliana played Go with the King, but it didn't show it for a handful of panels so I couldn't even tell that they had started a game. This type of thing happened multiple times.
- Justin got too much attention.
- Adam didn't get enough attention.
- I would have liked more scenes with Raeliana's family.

Not bad, but not fantastic either.

Liked it a first, but the sick manipulation games were annoying.

Idk, but i might be one of the few who dislike how the plot turned out.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At first I liked the FL, but after reading further about why she ended up there and the world being set up for her. I sort of started hating the "goddess" or the author of this world when I saw the POV's of the side characters who became cannon fodders for the FL. I actually felt sorry for original Rae, as she was a pawn used by the goddess to play around with. She was basically a puppet! Every character became a puppet for this so called "goddess" to be manipulated. The only reason FL was able to change the plot was because she "killed" the soul that the author wanted kill off. Making og Rae a villianess cannon fodder for FL as a stepping stone for her "happily ever after". And I hated that, because it was done at the cost of someones life for that ending. The goddess is corrupted and never got consequences for manipulating souls into a sick game for entertainment. I just couldn't fathom how FL didn't see that and was blaming og Rae for wanting to live, knowing one of them had to die because both souls couldn't exist in the same world. She was a hypocrite. She said og Rae could change her life, but that was a lie. Because the author/goddess already planned to kill her (og rae) off no matter what ending she chose. Also if she (FL) really thought og rae in Beatrice body could change her life, she shouldn't have killed her off like that. It made her a hypocrite! But she did because she knew about the souls and wanted to live as well. In a way, she was also selfish like og Rae who wanted to live as well. But the story was built for Beatrice the transmigator (FL) no matter what, so og Rae would have died anyways. Sad... FL plot armor was really strong, not gonna lie. When the actions she made through out the story may have been a bit different than some isekai plots, I was still getting Mary Sue vibes from her.

I don't think I can read the last 50 chapters. It's got a good first arc/season, even if the contract makes no sense for the duke to sign, but it just gets so painfully filler filled that I can't be arsed anymore.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
90 chapters in and we're still doing misunderstandings about the original heroine..?
Antagonists are boring, plotpoints are uninspired, and the MLs don't have much going for them. Did like the grandpa priest though.
