while reading this manhwa don't read the first chapter it is a spoiler start reading from chapter 2
Something is really off with this manhwa. It's not entirely bad, but it doesn't fit, doesn't feel fluid and for the most part even it even feels way too plain and simple. Just as if the story hasn't been thought through thoroughly. There are always a few things wrong in webtoons and this work has a few of them, although they're not so extreme that I wanna drop it instantly, but I always have "what? why? wtf?" floating in my mind while reading. The following few points are even common in manhwas, so I can't exactly point my finger to whatever is giving me that strong vibe. Maybe it's the mixture of them all? idiotic characters who don't fit in(MCs father, the scheming count, is pretty much always baffled and definitely not composed as you'd expect a charachter with such a setting) plots which are overly complicated and simple at the same time(like a certain incident with the carriage and the follow-up events. Why did no one notice? Why did no one suspect anything? Why not simply take another carriage and instead hiring those guys? Was it to not let the emperor know? Would it be THAT much of a problem for the archduke to explain the situation to the emperor? It's just way too obvious and both ML and FL had been artificially stupidified for this incident to happen) random scenes which feel out of place(Why did she drank that wine?)(additionally, "fox + excalibur" should suffice as a hint for those who read that far) "romance" which feels forced and rushed(campfire scene after excalibur scene. That was more cringy than romantic)
Definitely one of the top-tier reincarnation/villainesss/contract marriage stories. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Plot: 5/5 (a unique spin on a (for me) much-beloved genre)Art: 5/5 (so pretty!)Leading Characters: 5/5 (they're my new dream couple.)Supporting Characters: 4/5Romance: 4/5 (POWERCOUPLE!!! POWERCOUPLE!! POWERCOUPLE!!! also, ML is smooth as f and there's actual chemistry)Genres: Reincarnation, Revenge, Reborn-As-Villainess, Contract Marriage, Politics (sorta), Aristocracy Strong, beautiful, cunning and SAVAGE Female Lead; an incredibly smooth, incredibly handsome Male Lead; actual chemistry between the Leads (rare enough in these kinds of stories); magic & swordsmanship; hateable characters with comprehensible goals and motivations & that nevertheless don't feel two-dimensional; great supporting characters.... Truly the kind of story I've been searching for.
