My Thoughts


Review covers 8 chapters 

Hello guys and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Mini manga review corner has another romance story. I think I’m reviewing too much romance, but hey, I’m a girl so I do not really care. But I promise I will cover some other genres too.

I took up this particular story because I wanted to read something new in the smut genre and even though it didn’t really meet my expectations of smut, it was a nice story nevertheless. It’s only 8 chapters long and it does leave us with not really an ending. I mean, Rio does remember Lancelot at the end, but still there’s this uncertainty left, as to why the hell should he had to go to Britain again? But maybe that was just a plot to make Rio remember? Well, I’ll never know.

If you have some time to spare and need something to cheer you up, this story is the best, especially if you love fantasy and a bit of adventure. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned and happy reading!

XOXO


Katie
