“Down with the villain!”
The townspeople rioted at the gates while Yu Yan calmly sipped her tea, occasionally nodding and raising her fist along with the riots like she was cheering on a football match.
“Down with the villain!” she hollered along with them, on the balcony above.
One of the townspeople snarled, “Do you have no shame? You kill us, and then you mock us?”
She blinked, remembering.
She was the villain.
It had been two weeks since Yu Yan, a lazy millionaire’s daughter, transmigrated into the body of an incompetent Queen in a novel she read.
Twenty years before the actual novel takes place, the villagers are set to riot and take over the Kingdom.
“Aiyoo, if they want to riot, let them riot. If they get tired, send them water. If they need more people, go send the guards to riot with them. Easy.”
She’s read enough books to know that the butterfly effect is dangerous.
But this time, she won’t die.
“Belluse, have you made the preparations?”
“Yes, Your Majesty. The carriage is ready.”
Fake her death, run away to the villages of the neighboring country to her secret mansion, die there, and hope for the best.
Let the male lead sort out the country in twenty years.
Of course, she didn’t expect the male lead to come find her.
“Uh..Your Former Majesty…”
“Your personal attribute says ‘Immortality.’”
bishop1275: A distinct character for a female leading role in a historical fantasy setting. With a different twist of the plots and exciting possibilities. Very interesting and unique story. Besides few grammatical errors, this book has a lot of potential.
TaintedMetal: Good read so far. There’s still more to explore, but the 3 chapters so far create a path to what would be an engaging and unique story. Biggest positive of this book is that it’s one of those books with a monarch as it’s protagonist, and I personally haven’t seen those kinds of protagonists for a while.
phoenixhyperion: Honestly, your story reminds me of my favorite isekai story. Especially the setting and your main character. And I love that.
As much as I like your character, I want to see the world more in your character’s perspective. Broading your description in their emotions, perception and reactions I think you can improve this story more in that aspect.
Overall you did a great job in this story author. Keep up the good work!
HeavenlyKnight: The store is well written and depicted. it was like characters moving in front you, and MC character…XD. I like it. Decisive, cruel, intelligent, and manipulative.
I am kinda tired of ‘I am justice’ characters, and we need the cruel’s ones too.
The character Yu Yan, is selfish, don’t hesitate, and do everything to fulfill her wishes.
I wish there should be some romance though.
Try it! I am sure you won’t be disappointed.
BlaccLotus: A unique and quite well written Eastern fantasy. A good read for you who got enough of cliche historical romance and seeking a unique female lead fantasy and unique concept of story.
➕ The synopsis is intriguing enough to catch the good first impression.
➕ Pretty good grammar.
➕ Good premise
➕ Interesting character design.
➕ The dialogues feel alive.
➕ Pretty good description.
➕ As for the world building, I can’t say a lot since there are only 3 available chapters at the moment but I feel the author will work on it pretty soon.
➖ The cover isn’t interesting enough. Good cover will bring you more readers.
➖ Honestly I’m not fan of systems so I can’t say a lot about it, but I find the structure of status window in this book is a bit messy (I’m reading on smartphone btw)
Well, so far it’s pretty good reading experience. Good luck.
