Several years later, Aria is about to be executed when Mielle reveals that she wickedly tricked Aria into building the bad reputation that ultimately brought her to the scaffold. Just as Aria desperately wishes she could change her fate, she sees a curious hourglass that takes her back into the past. Now, Aria can destroy Mielle by using her tactics against her as a true villainess. The power of the hourglass is on her side… Can Aria take everything from Mielle, or will her actions change the past in ways she couldn’t have imagined?
Good story. Not that complex if you’re familiar with the whole ‘villainess’ stories but instead of isekai it’s time travel. This does let it be more serious though since this MC was a bad person and did get her head cut off and that has traumatized her.
Moreover, The art style is just beautiful and it draws you into the plot of the story. The MC is very clever and because she went back in time, she becomes a completely different person. I find everything about this manhwa very charming and intriguing. The ML is also nothing to overlook even though he doesn’t make an official entrance until later on. His attitude towards the FL is a lot more likable compared to other MLS who just obsess over the FL and force her to love them back. There isn’t much romance in the current chapters, but the story is so good that I don’t mind if there isn’t much.
Overall, If you enjoy political intrigue, stories involving nobility and royalty, ruthless female characters, strong female characters, or power struggles between different factions. This romance manhwa where mc gets betrayed and goes dark is definitely for you.
