However, she was destined for ruin: she would be used as a chess piece by her younger brother to secure his throne and killed by her crazy husband.

“… Sister, are you referring to me?”

“In exchange, give me freedom.”

She had to change things before she became that Cayena.

    I first read the manhwa and there's only 22 chapters so I decided to read the novel. And I'm telling you that this is a decision I will never regret. I really like the story, not that interested in the romance part though I do like Raphael hehe. I am more interested on Cayena's plan and I'm looking forward on what will happen to Rezef. I really do hope that nothing bad will happen between Rezef and Cayena. Huhu this is my #1 favorite novel, I hope y'all would give it a go. Can't wait for the updateee

    In my opinion I don't really like the main couple. Cayena is a really formidable character with her schemes; however, she seems to be really weak to romance. I don't like how the male lead easily seduces her just by being around her and being arrogant. Dude literally just swoops in and seduces the fuck out of her and she falls for it like a teenage girl who only reads romance shit. Cayena is calculating until she conveniently becomes damsel-in-distress and the ML has to save her ass while she blushes or some shit. It's just too convenient and the author is pining way too hard for the ML lol. Would still recommend, it's just this one thing bothered me so much I audibly said "wtf are you doing Cayena." Idk, this is probably appealing to a certain audience but I'm a dude that don't like unrealistic over-romanticism.

      The Way to Protect Heroine's Brother and Return of The Knight Empress (if I'm not wrong) are good.

        TWtPTHB, I only found the manhwa/manhua (?). The second, you can find it here, it's The Return of Female Knight. Turns out I was wrong about the title.

      Remarried Empress, Lucia, The Empress Lives Twice, The Secret Wardrobe of the Duchess, and--more of a challenge but I cried repeatedly--I'll Quit as the Empress. The last one is not the smoothest read in the world at all but only five chapters really gave me trouble. It's worth it, it's a good story.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this so far. Definitely recommend reading it along side the manhwa version. Manhwa v isn’t as detailed but it helps a lot with your imagination.

Love tbe story. I read the manhwa version after reading this light novel. Honestly, I prefer light novel as it describe more details including character development and the relationships evolve between each character.

The manhwa felt rush & some minor details been neglect or changed. However minor the details, it is crucial glimpse of the character & it's development that makes me as reader feel more engross to read it. The manhwa has a beautiful drawing, that helps satiate my imagination of what the characters might look like.

Other than that, I suggest reading a lightnovel to better graps the plot, character development and the relationships evolve. An extra point to the FL for tackling every problem with elegance & cunning.

A good story to read at free times, though sometimes felt like I read Tintin in Female Vers (with that poisoning, kidnapping, kicking, and she's still alive). The way ML fell in love made me don't really like him.

But, what makes me like it because FL and her younger brother, Ethel.

Great story. The FL is a strong, tactical woman. This is what I need. The translation is also very good, not like the others that have me headache.

I come here because of the adaption (the art is really great) but stay here by the flow of the story and the way the translating team interpreted. Really fascinating!

I like the character development if the FL. No like other FL'S on other novels. Its quite twisted and I hope this isnt end with a cliche ending of course the plot say seem cliche if you already read a lot of villainess- reincarnation but the flow of the story is interesting. Hoping they wont drop this one

I like it, even if could be better.
The begging was amazing and I love how the FL grows, the side characters are eye catching as well.
My issues with this one is that it follows several cliches, the FL is poisoned, kidnapped a lot. Also the ML does not have anything special and the scenes with the twisted relationship with the brother, ends up being more interesting that the bland ones with the ML. I would like to see the magician to appear more as he seemed to have a more interesting personality.

I just like these kind of stories even though i read many novels whith this flow of story i still dont get tired of reading more.
And i have this weird feeling that there might be a love from brother to sister. And not a normal love but that kind of love*_*

Amazing story, love how the Heroine is strong is intelligent and the male leads are also very good, the story flow is also very good not like how in other novels the story becomes slow in middle, the more you read the more the story becomes interesting, I love it totally.

I love this, although, I'm only on chapter 100, (SLIGHT SPOILER, I guess?) I wish there weren't so many betrayals! It breaks my poor little heart!

(Also, to readers who have trouble visualizing the story, there's an illustrated version that came out recently. Only a few chapter so far on Mangadex)


(ACTUAL SPOILER because there aren't any comment sections where I can rant, or at least I can't find any)
It's so sad to see Cayena believe that Rezef and her could be a happy family then 180 it and hates him! :( Cayena treats Rezef like a child and then I start thinking of him as a child who needs affection! I might be a bit biased because Rezef is my favorite character besides Cayena BUT I want him to have a happy ending! with the rate this is going, I don't know if it's possible! I really want a Rezef redemption.
Although I'm sad at Rezef's current situation, I still love this story! It's one of my favorites so I'm giving this a well deserved 5 star review.
