Love the art 😍 😍😍😍 but that's as for as it goes. Plot is meh. It was hard for me to keep reading it, I mean I read so far 🥺. The pacing too slow. As the story progresses the mental state of the characters keep degrading at least in my opinion. It was supposed to be fantasy crime with a hint of romance gener right ?! But it's been dragged so much ,all that's left is a cheesy romance fantasy with randi godfather coming in just for the sake off being the obstacle to their TRUE UNITY. This manhwa has detoried so much that it's perfect backdrop for readerXreincarnation manhwa🤣. Please let some noble sad back-drop reader die and reincarnate into this manhwa and help them regain their intellectual levels............Amen.
I've been on a cycle of reading and dropping this webtoon for a while.
Everytime, I would read a couple chapters and find the progression of the story too slow and not interesting enough; so I drop reading it. I would then later pick it back up again because it's one of the few ongoing webtoon that have a lot of uploads and a decent rating on other sites and I want to give it another chance. But, when I read it again, I still find it too dull to continue and would drop again...
So I've on this cycle until I thought the story is finally getting somewhere around chapter 26~ ... And around chapter 30~ I thought wow, I'm glad I've been persistant on reading it and it's finally getting good. But that's when the season ends. And the beginning of the new season, new setting, the story goes back into being kind of slow again.
I actually really like the characters. They're both very charasmatic and smart. It is rewarding to see the character development of the FL and ML since "Season 1" and how their relationship with each have grown and becomes more romantic.
This is definitely a webtoon that is slow burning, focusing on building the story around all the characters involved in the cases.
I would recommend if you don't mind the slow development. That's the "charm" of this webtoon. It can drive you mad by how slow the story goes on but you can't stop reading because you want to know how everything ends up. The story itself is overall pretty good, but, just not for me. The slow progression is driving me mad, I'll be taking another break from reading for now.
This could be a manga you would want to read if you have nothing more interesting to read. At first, the development between the characters was going well, but over time the process became so slow and the romance between them has weakened which made the story boring (well we have to admit that some of us came for the romance tag - and mystery (?) - but it wasn't as expected). I would say it was better off if there was no romance between the FL and ML because it felt forced only to appeal the readers with some love scene.
The Author gave huge attention to the relationships and stories of the side characters and introduced many different people. I find it a great idea to entertain us but also became an unnecessary burden that made the story feels somehow rushed or I would say the new characters would always appear out of nowhere and THOSE new character's stories affected points that were overlooked and unexplained throughout the story.
If I were to talk about the main lead characters, I would say that the FL is sharp and smart, but also clumsy. While the ML appears emotionless but actually carefree about everything and everyone excluding work. He lacks common sense in some situations and doesn't have great social skills.
The Art was good and nothing felt out of line.
RECOMMENDED FOR INTRIGUE LOVERS!
This is one original story with an amazingly good art. The main characters are exciting as Ian holds a great secret while living as a servant in the manor, whilst the female lead is a true gem who seems to have her own intrigue albeit unknown to herself. Kate is alluring and beautiful but has no vanity and is a hardworker. However, her docile nature as a maid does not stop her from trying to unravel the mysteries in the manor. Her wisdom and sharpness eventually comes within the attention of Ian whose interest in the little maid gains foothold as the story develops. A well crafted plot with satisfying visuals.
Wonderful story. pacing was very natural. The writting of all the major non-villian characters are stunning beyond compare! Despite what others say, I do not believe the ending was rushed. The story has a lot of build up and a quick resolution, however it was very fitting for the story.
