Summary

When an ambitious teenage girl from Earth finds herself in a magical realm, she could be the hero—but she'd prefer to be the villain.

When power-hungry Everly is reborn into a medieval world where elemental magic rules and she receives her elemental servants—the oddly sadistic Eris and the fun-loving Titania—years earlier than one typically would, she knows she's destined for a command of necromantic magic the likes of which her peers can only dream.

Though she's the bastard daughter of a count and a precariously positioned concubine, Everly is determined to be a conqueror, warlord, and queen. She could be the hero of the realm, the person to save everyone, with her protectors—the Silver Lance—and her beautiful mage lover by her side.

But Everly's no hero. She's an aspiring villain, seeking the freedom that comes with doing wrong. And before long, she'll make everyone fear the name of the Empress . . .

The first volume of the hit portal fantasy series—with more than 400,000 views on Royal Road—now available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and Audible!

power to the fantasy

I hate being teased the end game at the start then rewinded back to the beginning, I thought a prologue was a before story not a flash forward. ANYWAY.

good entertaining, I like this, it's like someone saw eminence in shadow and decided to make the MC just as broken, but a complete psycho, she not a murder hobo, and has a role and standards she puts her self Into. I like the build of her power and how she spends her time as she grows up.
tho it starts meandering in inner monologue and some weird self aware self narration explaining everything instead of getting to the point, it got tiresome even tho I think it was intentional. Also that ending had me interested, she ain't a anti hero she's a self villian...with standards...

tldr, power fantasy, good narration, self aware psycho mc that doesn't kill everyone they see, good interactions. interesting ending to get rid of a what i see was her obly weakness (if ya know you know).

score 3/5 try it.

Surprisingly good isekai story

The story was amazing. It really put a spin on the whole idea of reincarnating as the villain. Overpowered protagonist? Yep. Surprisingly rich world? Yes. The heroes are often as despicable as to make the protagonist the 'lesser evil' to the world, which in a way is dancing around the theme of "reincarnated as a villain", but the main character is so enjoyably theathrical it's amazing.
While it is a very big positive that the series also deves into the nerdy side of the protagonist often, sometimes it feels like placing too much pop culture is pulling away from the story.
Overall it was an amazing time. The performer was a bit of a slow reader so I had to listen at 1.2x, but when the moments mattered, they put a lot of emphasys and effort to really make the dialogue flourish.
Can't wait for book 2.

Read it for the Brilliant Toxicity

If you Enjoy broken People and Toxic relationships this book is probably for you,
Its a Predictable power fantasy from the perspective of boundless narcissisms of a teenage girl.
Entertaining for sure but the reason why you should really give it a listen is the Toxicity and the Verbal and Emotional beat downs.

TW: VERY IMAGINATIVE G*RE

I honest to god didn't know how much I needed a villain/a main character that just takes what they need. Trust me if you are not squimish and are willing to go with whatever the book throws at you this is a great read. But genuinly, if you are squimish look away and beware.

not really a villain story

It's one of those things where the author thinks they are going to write a villain, but the actual antagonists are so horribly obnoxious that it dilutes the actual 'villainy'.

like ffs put in a trigger warning for the templar leader Sarah damn you. I wanted to jump into the book myself. Anyways, good writing, premise partially failed.

oh yeah, also way too may anime-esque posturing scenes. that's also irritating.

complete and total psycho

this main character is a monster
the only compelling thing about her is that she's got good references
I know this is the story about a villain, but this girl goes from "I wanna be a dark Knight" to "I'm gonna make saw and texas chainsaw massacre" look pg13 she is a narcissistic, psychopathic, sociopathic sadist and the book goes into such detail about how much she enjoys torturing people for giggles I genuinely fear for the authors mind

Great MC, Loved all the nerdy references.

Insane, mildly self-aware MC from 2024 earth but the narrator didn't do it justice tbh, she sounded bored alot of the time with lack luster portrayals of emotion. I would still recommend this for the story and great writing I especially liked when she ripped Kylo Ren a new one.

This needs an anime adaptation. And it needs it yesterday.

I’m in love with the main character. She’s the literally embodiment of toxicity itself. Twisted beyond redemption.

The action is good, the comedy is fantastic (especially the shameless amounts of pop culture references.)

I seriously hope this gets manga or anime adaptations. I need this to get adaptations.

lies and pointlessness

for a book that states "no romance" on it RR pages we have way too much time with it shoved down our throats. the author has fallen into the trap of evil for evil sake, the tropes just feel lazy and stale
