This manhwa is deceptively calm in the beginning. The inital plot twist isn't massively unpredictable, but the fact that EVERYTHING goes violently downhill from there... the character changes and the darkening plot (there wasn't a single shred of happiness in this, just beautiful agony) was amazing. The characters are either cruel or ripped apart in this unforgiving world. The art, while sometimes looking oddly shiny and somewhat disjointed, only adds to the atmosphere. 

It's not for everyone, but to anyone who likes supernatural tragedies, you won't regret picking this up.

Freakin' heck man, it's fantastic! It's a really page turner! I usually read a few pages of something a day, if I'm reading it online, but with The Pale Horse, I just couldn't stop! I'm not ashamed to admit, I've become addicted to this story! Not to mention, the art is simply beautiful! I'm a huge fan, and I'd recommend it to all of my friends! When reading it, I was listening to the Nightwish radio on Pandora, and it REALLY sets the mood! I adore it!

came for copper found gold or so i thought...

warning, story contains cannibalism, rape, incest, violence and more. every single relationship is shockingly unhealthy and plain mad but still, the disgusting, the good, the thrills all make this one hell of a ride

foreshadowing for FL's identity and thousand years backstories with lemon(benjamin)  was rlly good. tension btwn them was so toxic hot, u hate every character but like them at the same time, it was super investing 

loved fl and benjamin(lemon/guinness) together, hes a fkng well-written but twisted character with the bickering chemistry and insane love for fl. tbf both of them are super messed up even tho he became that way for fl. like fl said 'he was a mirror match of my twisted heart' they were so gd toegther. altho fl was js disappointing, js as selfish as she was in day 1, still rooted for her cus they were all really complicated

but fk pierre cus he def js had puppy crush turned hatred turned lust bc of FLs beauty. the hate to love trope between them was so fkng annoying bc thats not love its lust u horndog

(still didnt like how he lost his virginity to some old hag as a kept lover and even convinced himself he liked that old woman wtff) Benjamin had more of an obsession/love for fl while pierre's is just fucking lust and disgusting how he thinks otherwise. both are hot but benjamins character was more thrilling to read than plainass pierre 

the ending was disgusting and disappointing, wld warn u to fuck this shit but cant lie that it was an insane fun read despite my disappointment

read if ur prepared for some twisted stuff but dont waste ur time on it if u didnt like what i mentioned in my review
