The countries of Mephius and Garbera have been waging a war for ten years and are trying to put an end to this long fight through a political marriage between the two royal families.

Orba, who was driven from his home because of the war and was forced to become a gladiator, looks exactly like the crown prince of Mephius, and it has been decided he will be substituting him during the wedding ceremony. On the other hand, Vileena, the princess of Garbera, has secretly decided to ensnare the crown prince for her own country's interests.

Since I spent two days and 3 nights up to 3am reading this novel, I thought I'd write a review, though I am too lazy to write a comprehensive one.

An amazing start. A shitty finish.

One of the best Novel JP I've ever read, it really deserved more attention.
Story: 7/10 - The story is well put together, many memorable moments, you stop to reflect the internal conflicts of character X or Y, the political part is fantastic.

Art: 10/10 - There's not much to say, it's an LN, the arts are very beautiful.
Characters: 10/10 - Many charismatic characters, some even boring, if I were ...
