A girl from the modern world slips into the body of Niveia Aerber, the main character of the fantasy novel she was reading. To survive in Erathil, a world full of betrayal and monsters where she was destined to meet an early death, the new Niveia embarks on an adventure to escape from her fate. The old Niveia was set to become the next Priestess to serve the Grand Temple, but not the new Niveia. Instead, she runs away from the temple, from her archrival, Rosanna, and her fiancé, Duke Aetius Timothero. Along the way, she enlists the help of Prince Caeles, who is also on a mission of his own - to find out which noble families are planning an uprising against his kingdom, including Niveia's family. In this chaotic turmoil of love, loyalty, and treason, can Niveia create a better future for herself, and more importantly, can she ever return to the real world?

It had a good start, nothing exceptional since it's an over-used trope, but the MC was interesting, headstrong, decisive, knew when to act and when to pull back, it was looking good. Unfortunately, as the story progressed she had become an inconsistent character, for some reason she stopped being assertive when needed, this coinciding with the re-appearance of the second lead, she was still bullheaded but all in her head, how fortuitous and thus all kind of annoying crap started to happen. And that was it for me, after the first 40ch or so it had stopped being an enjoyable read I kept reading because I liked the start but after that happened I can already imagine all the BS, misunderstandings and forced crap that would follow. Enough is enough, there are too many similar stories to read this. (Expand for spoilers)Other than that, the art is very good, pace is okish, dialogues are meh and the other chars are mostly ok, ML and her aunt are decent (thou he'll be a simp for sure) the rest not very interesting nor developed. Oh, and the humor was hit and miss for me, but it wasn't bad when it was not being disruptive to the narrative.Started a 7 ended a 3 by the point I dropped it. Let me give you an example ***SPOILER ch60*** (is there a way to hide spoilers? if someone knows please tell me, otherwise, please add this basic function) She has spent since the start of the story a lot of effort to cut her engagement with the annoying PoS of a duke, yet when he reappears she has multiple chances to say plainly to his face that she doesn't like him, yet she doesn't, instead she plays coy, then the a**hole declares in front of everyone she's his fiance, again, she doesn't say she has already cut that relationship, continuing with this now beautiful trend, she travels with him (and her aunt, at least) to the capital and has no better idea to stay in the Duke's mansion... yeah... but that's not nearly enough right? She gets drunk with the douche, somehow ends in his room, in his bed and... she chokes him, yep, AT LAST, right? nop, for some reason the butler has the notion that interrupting a private night of his master with his "fiance" was a good idea so he very conveniently knocks on the door because of some noise or some BS (as if some noise would be strange). So, what does the incredible MC, that has been trying to break the engagement do? she fakes having had had sex with the Duke... Oh, brillant, what a great idea, I can't think of any way it could backfire...
reviewed at Chp 30 Personally, I found this story to be a breathe a fresh air. the plot has the typical isekai overtones but takes a unique twist in a way I havent seen other stories do. The FL pushes on and her circumstances change throughout the story- the change of scenery is really refreshing and I appreciate that she continually reassessed her situation and developed new goals to push the plot instead of just sitting still. The FL is also refreshing as a character. She is thoughtful but not so consumed by her thoughts, she is funny but also strong and independent. I also enjoy her interactions with the ML and how she still pushes forward and they separate when it make sense for the story. Their interactions are sweet and show the develop of genuine interest and friendship. If you like humor and a strong female lead, with twinge of romance and a moving plot, then just give it a chance. It only gets better as it goes.
Premise is somewhat ridiculous but the humor carries this manga through. Female lead is the standard otome isekai villainess who shuns her role of saintess in the novel, by becoming a rogue commoner who'll take over her family's line of succession. She has a couple of cheat skills which is just par for the course, since she's portrayed to be a strong and 'rebellious' female lead. I wouldn't have rated this as high as I did if it wasn't for the refreshing art style and comedy. The artist exaggerates emotions and inserts humorous anecdotes in between key scenes that normally wouldn't be as notable. With their romance, you can clearly see the path that the manga will take. The male lead has yet to shine in the spotlight, which I think is on purpose because they want to juxtapose the personality of the female lead from him. I would actually read more of this if there's any updates, surprisingly.
