    the extra stories are a bit of a drag but nevertheless, it's still a good read. but after mielle's execution, there's not much to look forward to. i wish the author added a bit more of chloe x aria and aria x asher moments :(( i mean her dad kinda only cares for her mom ,,,,, ;/

    Wonderful story. Although it lost momentum when reaching epilogue it was still enjoyable :) I can easily recommend it to fans of romance.

Aria is such a lovable character. All the characters main or sub-role were also likable. There must be an army of Millie haters now xDDDDDDDD


Really good novel. Her vengeance is great and well done. The evolution and plans of the main character are fantastic. The story have a few plot holes, a few characters are bit clichés and they drink a lot of tea!


i should admit i like the main story, but seriously, i can't ignore how i'm bored with author's writing style.

this boredom mainly caused by scripted dialogues, cliche romances, unimportant point of views from unnamed side characters, antagonists with lack of intelligence, unending praises for our FL beauty, FL lack of empathy despite the "brother" has done no life threatening advances in her second life, FL faking innocence for what family means while her mother do nothing that can be described as neglect (maybe when FL were younger because her mother HAD TO WORK), or maybe FL narration that irks me that i find her so self-centered.

i did say i like the main story, but this uncomfortable feeling i got when i read this book can't be ignored.

i like how FL goes in the manhwa though, and like i repeatedly said, the main story is likable and it makes me finish this book though i gotta skip paragraphs like crazy.


Aria is cunning, and she and Asher are the perfect couple. The plot of the battle for power is captivating, and this story is one of the best isekai novels out there!


It was my first novel and I finished reading it within a week, because it's just too good! I recommend manhwa readers to read the novel too because while the manhwa has pretty drawings you can feel what Aria really thinks and how she changes thorough the story in the novel and also, well, you can see Mielle's death earlier here ;)


I finished it in 2 weeks, when I'm a total beginner at reading this kind of novel. I really recommend it for those who don't read much like me, you'll get hooked!! It was really interesting, the female protagonist stayed faithful to herself til the end. She's the powerful one in this novel ;)


Favourite isekai romance hands down! Found the manhwa first, but the novel is completed and good too. Only wish that the story was longer...


I really loved this story. It’s a typical revenge plot with a well thought out protagonist, I especially like how all her actions were predictable but satisfying, as well as the fact that Aria’s personality did not somehow become kind or completely different when she came back. I like that she maintained her true self and achieved her revenge in such an intricate way. I wish it was longer to be honest!!


Love the story so much, I like the protagonists, especially Aria, she has a unique personality, it's not the classic poor girl of other stories.


So worth the read. Excellent storyline, fast paced as well, there was no unnecessary story included in it, they all had a purpose, each chapter went straight to the point, the characters were awesome as well. Overall this is one of the best novels. Both fl and ml were just the best. It’s a must read.
