After downing one too many glasses of wine one night, Songha wakes up inside the world of her favorite novel as Empress Yulia. But being given the reins to an empire isn’t as exciting as it seems—the tyrannical Yulia will soon meet a bloody fate at the hands of the captain of her personal guards, Justo. Songha must think of a way to reverse the events that lead up to the coup d'état, which will take place in just three days. She chooses to use warmth and benevolence to reach out to a group of loyal subjects Yulia exiled, but will her strategy be enough to win back the people’s trust? Or will the empress’s sudden change in behavior raise even more suspicion among the rebels?
Although I would have preferred to read about the og emperor dealing with the rebellion, this kind of make sense. The events leading to the og emperor becoming a tyrant were revealed (kind of glossed over), she was a good leader, she lead the war and at some point she became blood thirsty and after that she became a drunkard and slept with a lot of men. With the assumption that the war has gotten to her head she's a goner, the rebellion will happen and she will die as the tyrant. Too early to judge the story but for our mc, props to her for not panicking with the little time she has left until the rebellion.
It's interesting. The plot is still in the beginning stages but you can tell that the author is already laying a foundation for where the story will go and, I can't wait to learn more about all the characters. I honestly feel bad for the original Yulia who was benevolent but drugged and manipulated at her lowest point into becoming what she was. This story has a lot of potential.
