As she joins hands with Prince Faylon and sets out to punish those who conspired against her, she’ll discover a world she once took for granted and seek to correct the course of her fate.
Aside from the weird art, the story is meh. The characters are also meh. Typical turn-back-time shoujo that you only read when you really, really have nothing better to do. Look, I normally don't let art affect my rating of a story so much. But combined with a meh storyline and stock characters, I just can't like the manhwa. The art has bad proportions, awkward fashion designs, spiky hair, and my least favourite - badly drawn (unfocused and awkward) eyes and eyelashes. I'll acknowledge the dress designs were really pretty (except for the awkward ribbon around FL's neck). The level of detail in the outfits is good. The characters are bland. Yeah, I get it's only chapter 7, but I don't see any motivation for why the Second Prince (ML) would be so devoted to Kai (FL). Judging by the fact that FL didn't have any positive memories of him in her first life (other than the last moments), are they intending to set up the reason the prince is like a loyal dog for FL is that the FL is the saviour and light of the prince's cruel/boring life? The FL is okay... Trashy previous lover and family member are the most stereotypical you could find. Though if you like some bitch slapping and revenge, you'll probably like the manhwa a bit more. It's like the manhwa's just trying to hitch on the isekai boom. It throws in all those typical spicy elements: revenge, trashy family members, trashy previous lover, cunning FL, devoted ML, influential characters supportive of FL,... but the tropes, in my opinion, are not done well. They just all felt a bit rushed and insincere. Yeah, that's it. It's not super duper bad, but I'm not picking it up again, personally.
The art was off-putting and weird, which distracted the story. The plot so far is a bit generic, feels like it was told better in other stories, like The Villainess lives Again.
It is an okay read. It isn't as interesting at all, but for some reason it is readable enough for me to continue to get updated of what is happening. The plot itself feels unnecessary if you know what I mean and very generic. There is nothing special about it, the art took me so long to get used to so I can continue to read. The characters themselves are plain and boring.
