Synopsis

The daughter of the Black Witch, Aurora, was betrayed by one of her own and killed by her Father, the Emperor.

Witches, although feared, were not hated. However, this changed when Aurora's mother cast a curse on humans to prevent them from using magic. Because of this, Aurora who was a Princess, spent most of her life on the run. Unfortunately, she was eventually caught. Before being burned alive she swore that if she ever gets the chance for revenge, she'd kill all those who hurt her and destroy everything they love.

[ One thousand years later. ]

The Opax Continent is burdened with protecting their citizens from the Corrupted Region, where beasts and other dark creatures roam. Nobles are tasked with sending their contracted familiars to this place every two years to suppress the erosion from further spreading. The eldest son of the Rizar family, Lucius, has come home to take his father's place as Duke. And before he can, he must first summon a high level ranked familiar.

The summoning succeeds but...his familiar is a Witch?! How did this happen??!

Aurora has found herself in a strange situation. Not only has her age regressed from 30 to 15, but witches have become nearly extinct! And when a Witch is found, they are actually put under the protection of the Holy Temple, that used to believe Witches were followers of evil. So much has changed from back then.

What about the revenge she swore she'd get if given a second chance? Her vow has now become useless. Still, her hatred and disgust for nobles will not be swayed. { Even if he comes in 6 feet tall with glorious 6 pack abs. She will not let her guard down! ...No matter how tempting... }

Aurora wants nothing to do with the nobles but being summoned as a familiar to a Duke connected to the royal family isn't making it any easier. And let's not mention him being one of the victims of her Mother's curse? How exactly did that happen?

The more time she spends with Lucius, the more she wants to know about him.

Attracted to this man who tries so hard to hide himself behind a mask like she once did, will she decide to fight by his side and protect the Empire that once deserted her?

Author's Note:

*Warning!!! This is a slow romance/growth at start and weak to strong novel.

Happy reading!

    Status: author’s note #1: end of...

    This is a story driven romance novel focusing more on drama rather than things like action, and while the world-building isn't completely ignored it does take a step into the background.

    Despite the author's allegations of having poor grammar, I couldn't find noticeable issues so far. The writing itself is also pretty decent, offering well-done descriptions of things and actions without turning into info dumps. You will also find one of the very few cases of POV switching done right.

    So why just 3 stars then? I simply cannot get over the MC's ridiculous behavior. The author goes to great lengths to portray the miserable life she had, betrayed by her family, tricked by her first love, hunted down like an animal, then killed while cursing and swearing revenge only to have her soul imprisoned and suffer a 1000 years more. 

    Now what kind of person would you expect her to be after all this? I wouldn't have been surprised at all to see her as a raving lunatic hell-bent on revenge. But no, not even close. She finds herself in pretty much the same scenario as when she was betrayed by her fiance and instead of showing any hatred she gets attached to them and feels guilty because they are suffering from her mother's curse to the point where she's okay with letting herself get killed to alleviate their anger.

    Seriously? Just let everything be water under the bridge and let's all love each other... I just... I can't read this.

    Status: chapter 41: a poisonous woman (6)

    This novels cover and title is what caught my attention at first. Until I read the first chapter and couldn't stop reading. The author has a way of making you feel for the female and male lead. The character's background story are all fleshed out, even the side characters. I like  how  the Witches  are  different from other novels. I wonder what will happen next. The female  lead seems weak at first  but you can tell she's changing. The Male lead seems cold but there is  more to him. The world  setting is vast and  it  would be  nice to read more.

    Status: chapter 25: that which exists but...

    For the chapters ^_^... well even if english isn't my native language I try to make this work. Well... first, the story so far is interesting, the grammar is good and and it is overall wellwritten. 2. There is nothing partikular that jumps in my eyes as" hm, this doesn't match up" or something like that also thanks for the correction in the Timeline to 1k years...5k is really much and it would be very illogical to have either detailed records for the Black witch present nor even the kingdom still present... the characters so far feel very real since reasons for their actions are given, the worldbuild is good, the author could give  more details about some things, I know its in many cases pretty much pointless or could give a infodump feeling for chapters (and can be used as an dirty trick to stretch things out) but if the author is good with speech (from what I see ist the case here) then it could make chapters even more interesting, gives more to the worldbuilding and can be used so that the reader 'feels' the book, (dont know if I make a good example:as he looks down the withered castlewall an arrow grazes his right cheek. A sting of pain brings him tears into his eyes. At the same time the blood trickles to the corner of his mouth he takes action to cast his spell. he screams orders to his commander on the south wall.) As if he was standing while a action takes place. For that the author could try to make an experimental chapter to read, one half with usual style and other with more Details... well suit yourself author its not my book and I would be angry with myself if something goes down the drain... wish everyone a good time reading and much fun.

    Status: chapter 118: night of the chimera’...

    Caught my eye on SHF. Its pretty rare, I normally don't read stories on ScribbleHub but I think this is the first story I've completed going through all the chapters aside from a few short stories. Sure it dumps a bit of info at first and and bit grammar could be worded nicely, but the plot pulls you in. Wanted to see if the MC will unravel the mystery of what happened to the world while she was gone. Worldbuilding is pretty nice. Really want to read a compendium of the lore in this story's world.  

    At times one can understand the main character's actions and thoughts, but at times it seems, as someone mentioned in another review, that despite all the tragedy and hurt she has experienced... how to put it nicely, she's a bit soft? She feels guilty what her parents did, but it is not her fault but her parents that caused others to suffer. Sometimes she seem more soft than jaded despite the past. But the main character's background is the most interesting and her observant  personality too. It's interesting to see the flashbacks to her past add layer upon layer of what has made her to be now. The blacksmith stood out interesting too. The male lead changed personality a bit quick from icey cold to suddenly warm... but the main leads have good chemistry. 

    All in all though, good plot that pulls you in to read more and interesting worldbuilding lore. Can't wait to read more.
