The art is pretty but the plot, characters and everything are terrible.
The victim falling head over heels for the abuser is just so sickening.
Does Trauma simply evaporate?
I also don't like how the author also justified the prince actions in the first timeline. It's simply lazy and does not make sense.
I regret reading this trash manhwa.

Too sugary... But not bad

While I can't fault this as being a terrible piece of manhwa, the sheer sugary feel of the art just put me off. One of the male contenders for the FL's hand has a intensely green hair and my eyes just hurt from looking at it! The plot even shows some faint promise (being different people in different timelines, due to change of circumstance - possible of not?), and I love it when a pseudo 18th century ML has the hairdo and attitude of a 16 year old emo-spoiled brat from the 21st century. But that's isekai for you! FL wasn't too impressive but had a powerful and understandably emotional moment pretty early on so it did surprise me, but not enough to continue reading it. Since I am not a big shojou fan, maybe this was all pretty predictable. But stil, I repeat, not that bad!

Poorly written

The plot is bad, the characters are bad. The art is mostly good, but I don’t like many of the “beautiful” dresses the female lead wears.

It bugs me that no one talks about how the FL marrying the prince means the disbanding of her house, the most loyal and third ranking in the Empire. Just weird. Are her children supposed to take over ?

Why did everyone decide she is the child of the prophecy ? The prophecy was extremely vague. Why didn’t she tell everyone she got a different prophecy about not being that child? It is true.

By the end of this I was just glad it was other. If you don't like the main guy then you won't have a good time. I wish she had ended up with carstein he was just a great guy. Everything gets resolved then the last quarter or so chapters is just waiting for it to end.

Poor Conclusion

There are a ton of really long detailed comments on here so I don't really think I'll have anything to add that hasn't already been discussed. Regardless, here are my thoughts:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- I thought this started out very strong and had a good premise. I wish the story kept the wild energy of the first five chapters. Instead, it became very tame after she traveled back in time.
- I loved how they emphasized the father-daughter bond in the beginning. It got kind of sidelined though. I would have preferred it if her father stayed a major character throughout the story.
- I was very entertained by the first 75% of the story, but it went down a rabbit hole at the end with the poison conspiracy. I just don't think the author handled that plotline very well. They threw in random characters that I just didn't care two cents about. Like, whatever. Off with their heads - who cares?
- I did not like the romance in this. She ends up with the worst option (he literally traumatized her - I don't care if there was a time reset - it still happened) and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Why does every female in a story have to become royalty in the end? Is a romance story not worth it if the protagonist doesn't become a princess/queen/empress? Blegh. I was rooting for Carsein.
- I feel like the author tried so hard to push that this girl was "strong" by having her go the knight path. It doesn't mean anything though. She doesn't act like someone who can protect herself and in the end, she quits being a knight. I hated that she quit.
- What is up with the tragedy tag? The only tragedy is how the romance concludes.
- In my opinion, the author had a good thing going at the beginning and it was fairly addicting to read, but this ended up going in the wrong direction.

It's not for everyone

The negative reviews scared the hell out of me, but it honestly wasn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. If I could choose among the three, ofc I'd rather she ends up with Carsein since he was just the sweetest. But I'm not really mad at the fact that she chose Ruve either. Yes, Ruve was such an asshole in the first timeline, but he didn't do anything wrong in the second timeline. This was all because Tia decided to change after she went back in time by opening up and welcoming people into her life instead of pushing everyone away just to be the "perfect future empress." With the changes in herself as well as her decisions, the people around her also started to change like a butterfly effect; this includes Ruveliss. Let's be honest here, if we all go back 7-8 years from now and change our experiences, would we still be who we are today? Absolutely not. To be fair, Ruve hated Tia because she was taking away all the attention and love from the people he loves, but it most likely wouldn't have led to the heineous acts that he commited in the first timeline if it wasn't for the fact that.......

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he was drugged and brainwashed into hating Tia by the people around him. Allendis' father mentioned how he would purposely try to get them to hate each other because he wanted Tia as his daughter-in-law. It didn't really work in the second timeline because Tia stopped putting walls, and Ruve was able to understand her a lot more even if it was just through her interactions with others. As said earlier, Ruve was drugged after his father passed away, and it really altered his mental state to the point where he couldn't really be in control of his emotions anymore. Tia was also given the same drugs, which led her to stab him. Basically, they misunderstood each other, and Tia's personality in th and got used by those who were hungry for power.

Anyways, I enjoyed it quite a lot, but the ending wasn't really satisfying whatsoever. It would have been amazing if we got to see Ruve and Tia growing old together; kinda like a reassurance that Tia didn't end up making the wrong decision, again. And what happened to Carsein and Allendis after Tia became the empress? and JiEun? (gosh I feel so bad for her after knowing what happened). I guess it couldn't have been helped since the author was getting death threats and had to rush the ending just because some people feel entitled to have everything their way.

I don't see how the author was promoting abusive behavior though. You could say that if the story continued on the same timeline, but it wasn't. From the way I see it, the author touches upon how nobody is really born with a predetermined personality, and that we are all shaped through our environment. And our decisions and the way we interact with others affect them just as much as it affects us. It's a nice manhwa and definitely worth the read if you are able to look beyond the surface.
