Mangaka: Hwang Mi Ri
Volume(s): 15 (complete)
Genre(s): Fantasy, Gender Bender, Historical, Romance, Shoujo, Shounen Ai
Summary: An oracle prophesizes that the current heir to the throne will be usurped, and is forced to name who will be the usurper. He lies, and sacrifices an innocent soul instead--due to his lie, this changes the life of the 15 year-old girl, Matia.

The only word I can think of to describe this manhwa is... FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS! Hwang Mi Ri is such a talented mangaka.. and all of her works are top-notch.. Legend of Nereid being my top favorite. The storyline is so intriguing you become completely engrossed into the story that the next time you look up, you noticed you've just finished 8 volumes in a row. The characters and artwork are absolutely breathtaking. This is a MUST READ! I absolutely love Hwang Mi Ri. She is a fabulous mangaka.. and her manhwa constantly keep you guessing. I have to say though.. I was slightly disappointed in the ending. I wish she had continued the story a little more in order for characters to have a little more closure. I would have liked to see where everyone ended up. That's only disappointing part I can actually find in this manhwa.. 'cause everything else is absolutely fabulous - stoyrline, artwork, characters. And also... there was a gap of three years that wasn't shown. I would have liked to at least seen a few scenes of what went on in each of the character's 'lives' to see what had caused them to change into what they were in the end. Despite me feeling as though the ending could have left a little more of an impact I definitely recommend everyone who has read this manhwa to finish reading it if you haven't. This is a fabuluos manhwa that you should definitely check out!

Though, I think the ending did leave a somewhat bad impression, despite that though, I can't really say the ending ruined the story for me because in fact, I believe that the storyline is absolutely fabulous. And I guess in a way, the ending could work, in order for you allow to make your own assumptions. Personally - I hate making assumptions.. I like cold hard "facts." I guess in some way, the manhwa ended the same way it began which tends to make the ending quite more interesting if you look to it that way. I think maybe, if there had been a little more closure on those missing years, the ending may have worked out a little better. That way you could have gotten more of a feel for why it ended the way it did. Despite all these minor complaints though, you definitely need to finish reading it, if you haven't. And if you have yet to read it, do so.

i red this at first it was just great but later slowly it got a bit and and the ending wasn't something i thought it would be like

i had more high hopes for the ending not my kind of ending story cant really say much as i might just spit out all the spoilers as i dont really know how to talk about it going around it.

but its a good read at the beginning! :cheers:

It is a good reading but there will be portion that it is dragging but you would like it because it is not like the usual story line.
