I'm on chap 23 as of now, and the story is basically one of those were everyone (literally) falls for the child mc because she is just oh so cute. Which, honestly, I don't mind, but what's really bothering me in this story is the blatant favoritism everyone shows towards her over the other kids (her siblings). Like they are all kids, but she's somehow cuter than everyone and deserves special treatment??? Like most of the time she doesn't even try, and often ignore people or is rude to them, but she's somehow so cute that makes people want to faint?? And even her father's aide keeps saying the mc wants her father embrace and he needs to pay more attention to her, but both him and the father never did this to any of the other kids??? I'm honestly kinda annoyed and low key wanna go inside that novel to hug the other poor kids, they do be deserving better.

The title and introduction text are completely misleading. Even if there would be only 10% of all those "Ohhh she's so cute" scenes, it would still get on your nerves. What I'm trying t o say is: This is one of the stories where MC is super OP in magic and also is obsessively loved by everyone to the point half of the manhwa is just for every character showing their obsessive affection towards her.

I am well aware, that this manhwa is still early in its beginnings, but this kind of mood-setting content usually doesn't cease to exist. At most, it's replaced with similar content to keep the mood as it is.

In the near future a large part of the plot will be about all of them constantly blabbering and fighting and stressing for her affection while she won't know whats going on. And you -dear reader- will be shaking your head and ask: When will the story finally continue?.. We all know those kind of stories and artificially stupidified characters and this manhwa wont be different, I'm pretty sure.

It is REALLY annoying! Even though I only had small expectations, it still is extremely disappointing whenever potential is destroyed by some stupid, repetitive and meaningless plot ... It's like those harem/ecchis except for the difference that they don't even try to create a serious story in the first place.

Edit: Oh man, I just tried another 10 chapters, they use EVERY MEANS necessary to force in unwanted, annoying characters. This time it's a hard cut without return and the characters rating went from 4/10 to 2/10. Blergh

  • Rating: The art is beautiful and combines with the plot to a solid 3.5/5, but the entertaining FL carries it to a 4.5/5. 
  • Recommended for: a casual, entertaining read; humor; badass FL.
  • Contains: Strong/badass FL; Competent/smart/driven FL; Reincarnation/Rebirth into a younger body; Royalty; Betrayal and its aftereffects; a fairly ruthless and distrustful princess that slowly learns to open up and trust people again; a doting family (parts of it, at least); Magic; Swordsmanship
  • Not recommended if you're looking for: a 'saintly' MC; a focus on combat; wholesomeness.

This is great. Strong, smart, badass FL with a somewhat clichéd, but excellently implemented plot. Although it deals with some heavy themes (betrayal, human experimentation, children encouraged to kill each other for the succession of the throne), I was smiling the whole time and occasionally even outright laughed.

A definitive plus that stands out is that the betrayal actually has a consequence: the FL is distrustful and closed-off, going so far as to tell people, "don't say that you love me!" which other characters falsely attribute to her isolated upbringing. It's also one of the few times where a story that has 'wicked/evil/villainess' in the title actually has a MC with attributes associates with those labels without going overboard: the FL is ruthless, enjoys combat, gathers subjects and has no qualms about killing, but isn't inhumane; she wishes to protect "her people", even going so far as to masquerade as 'weak' in order to do so.
That's another thing: unlike with other stories, where the cuteness "just happens", the FL is at first annoyed with it, then actively decides to capitalize on it. Although she IS very cute. Honestly reminds me of a kitten when she's pissed off. It's quite refreshing.
Plus, she's a complete badass, even though she's limited by her toddler body.

Tl; dr:
I'd recommend checking it out; I found the manwha very entertaining. Decent amount of world building, likeable FL that isn't the typical goody two-shoes typically seen in this genre, great art. I'll probably reread it at some point.
