Aidin, the esteemed daughter of a duke, is the Emperor’s assassin and the leader of ‘Owl.’ For giving everything and serving her Lord faithfully, she was betrayed and sentenced to death by guillotine. Abandoned by her Lord, her life came to an end, yet the moment she opened her eyes again, she realized she had returned to a time when she was still only 17. In order to get her revenge, she decided to destroy Ferdi, a country that the Emperor cherished more than his life. "You are beautiful, Milady. Especially those red eyes of yours." The man who personally sent the order to have Aidin executed, the Prince from the enemy country, Diceon, unexpectedly began to interfere with her life! The story of Aidin, the woman who was abandoned by the Emperor and was given a second chance at life to get her revenge and to destroy her home country, now unfolds!
In short, it's okay. The art is very much my preference, goodness gracious Aidin is BEAUTIFUL, so I may be biased. Sadly though, it only has a few chapters, so I'm still looking forward to it. Pinpoints. 1. It's simple and cliché. The idea of revenge and family betrayal is so boring. But you know what they say, a well-written cliché is a potential masterpiece. Now whether it's well-written or not, see it for yourself. 2. The characters are not rigid. It doesn't feel forced at all. The obvious pointed things are discovered, unlike in some stroies, the person they're looking for is literally RIGHT there but they don't notice it. 3. MC is unrealistically realistic. She's a literal assassin captain under the Emperor, but she's pretty clumsy for one. That's unrealistic. It's like every single one of her mistakes is formed for the sole purpose of plot-device. But then again, she's so young that you would think it's realistic for such a young girl to make mistakes, assassin or not. I don't know if I like that, but she's not that clumsy so don't worry. 4. Last but not least, they're beautiful. So again, my judgement may be biased because I'm busy drooling over the art most of the time.
Storywise, it's the story of a Duchess that died betrayed and swears revenge after going 10 years to her past. The "twist" would be that she's the leader of an assassin group called the owl, which to be honest, makes it very hard to feel any sympathy for her imo, a murderer getting a bloody death sounds fitting to me. It's nothing special but it ain't bad either.The interactions between the MC and the prince (I sure hope he's not the ML thou unfortunately all point to him being it) are irritating, the prince is a brazen brat without manners (which is why I usually don't like royal MLs, regardless, he's supposed to be an intuitive, intelligent and resourceful person but he truly doesn't show it) and she persists in keeping her meek, polite façade. So there is a constant routine of him being abrasive and insolent, and she accommodating, it's bad chemistry and not pleasing to read, for me at least. So again, the manhwa was ruined by the ML for me.Also, there is a general lack of cohesiveness, as if the artist took the novel and removed several of the parts that explain and tie its different aspects together.Altogether, I found it hard to read, but for those that like pushy overbearing MLs, then they'll probably like it.
Review: The characters in the novel and the progression is so delicate and beautiful. The plot isn't overly complicated. It's the revenge type of plot so no complicated mysteries are unraveled. The exciting thing about this is how the chemistry of the supposed enemies are now being explored together. Good lawd, such nutritious plot and snaccable characters from left to right. God bless the author and artist who made this! I LOVE THIS NOVEL. 10/10 MUST READ! Synopsis: Aidin be coming back alive from death after being executed by a shitty emperor. As the leader of the assassin team, Owl, she plans to wipe out Perdin Kingdom's existence with the help of this hunk of a prince of the enemy country.
