Warmed by his doting staff and under his admiring tutelage, she regains her strength and becomes the wild card in an intricate game of power. With nothing to lose, will Evony orchestrate a new future for the empire?
This is a very good manhwa. You should ignore Djevel44's comment because it seems he was too caught up on the fact that the female MC has power than he forgot that the reason MC is being treated well is because everyone is ordered to treat her well by the Empress. The story is very interesting, a character ridiculed by society becomes the necessary tool to mess with high society amd manipulate nobles.
As of: chapter 25 Initially, this novel is an average story about a damaged woman being recuperated after being freed from a tortuous prison for a crime she didn't commit. However, it becomes much more interesting once the motives of the man who had her released start to become more clear. In her country, there is prevalent mysogyny. She was tried and convicted immediately with no defence for the murder of her so-called fiance and sentenced to execution while being sent to a torture-riddled prison. Even though it was self-defense. After having been thoroughly broken and wrung of any individuality, she is sponsored by a certain person. He asks her to help him topple some corrupt nobles and eradicate the country's blantant sexism, getting revenge for her fate along the way. Witness the badass unveilment of a woman with nothing to lose and everything to gain, setting everything at risk in order to play the game as a mysterious spy.
Got to say om highly dissapointed, saw alot of good reviews but this just left a bad taste, its pure feminist teash if you ask me, i really dont care if the storys want equal treatment and stuff as long it fits in, but it just doesnt fit in anywhere in a story thats about middleages, the whole country takes a dump om women but apperantly this one guy magically see women different? Whats worse is this damn MC is the worst sexist there is if you actually take a good look at it, my guess is the story is written by a virgin beta or a woman as nothing makes any damn sense, it starts off with the dude just casualy strolls in on the woman bathing and fprcefully starts cleaning her??? Then a day later suddenly he is highly worried about her self worth, thoughts, feelings and her own self governing. Not to mention he suddenly want to shower her in houses and gifta, a bloody woman who he dont know or have any feelings for, sure you could use the excuse "he is a good man thats why" but if that was true, how many women in that country dont suffer as bad as as t Ebony woman, this is the middleages setting after all, so if the MC just casualy gives off mansions and expensive gifta to every random woman he dont know why only Ebony? The overly trying to "women are powerfull and we will fix all world sexism" just ruined it for me, it Suits the future and now in 2020, but it really doesnt suit the middle ages, and if we where so nice as to overlook that and say a female ruler won the war and used the "since you won you can get anything" on a damn deathrow inmate?????? Also the story is heavily ruined by the fact the MC got absolutely no damn reason as as give her gifta and all that crap, if it was for love sure its a ok reason, but he really got no reason at all to give her shit, if he was this generous with rabdoms he would given those things to random beggers ok the Street long before meeting ms deathrow.
