I’m a sucker for romantic historical fiction. Done well, you will have a fan for life. My Dear Cold Blooded King is a on going series and it is done pretty well. Kihara isn’t a naive woman, who is unable to defend or speak for herself. The woman is badass to a certain extent. She doesn’t really think things through and is emotional and makes fast decisions without real consideration of herself and others. But despite this, she is a strong character even when she is unsure of her feelings.
Before you ask, yes, there is a love triangle. At first, I didn’t think the author was going to go that way but yeah it happened and I can’t even say I am really mad about it. It doesn’t fully drive the story as there are a bunch of other things going on but it is there and noticeable.
Speaking of love triangle, the leading men in her life…. I like them both but I prefer the second one over the first one. But honestly both wouldn’t be a bad choice.
My biggest issue with this read is that a lot of chapters are a lot of fluff. You really do not notice it until you are caught up and waiting for the next chapter to drop.
But the story flows really well even though the author is clearly stretching it. The artwork with music (because you can play music to your read) is fantastic. Its in color and detailed. I really really enjoyed this comic but kind of wish it would get to the point.
Overall, if you are a sap like me, you should read this.
