The summary of The Descendant of the Dynasty doesn't describe this manhwa as it should. The first time I ran into this manhwa it didn't spark my interest at all and after a long time, because I had nothing else to read, I decided to give it a try and, to my surprise, it wasn't such a bad manhwa as I expected.
In my opinion, I think the story is the greatest part of the manhwa. It is set in Egypt, in a ancient time where each country fought in order to be more powerful. The manhwa follows the story of two royal sisters who where
separated at a very young age and their country was conquered by Egypt. Each sister has lived her life in different surroundings and they don't recognize each other when they met again after so long.
Personally, I really love this kind of art which is quite unigue. Even though the characters are similar drawn you can't and you don't confuse them. I don't know why but sometimes I just stop reading and look at the clothes, the scenery and the details that, honestly, attract me more than the characters faces which, as I said before, are quite similar.
As I continued reading I enjoyed finding more about each of the characters and their past. I really loved the fact that the older sister isn't a typical weak and defenceless main girl which is always rescued by others instead of looking out for herself when actually it is really quite the opposite. She is a proud, beautiful, strong, courageous, arrogant and ambitious woman who always makes herself noticed by the others not only by her astonishing beauty, but also by her extraordinary fighting skills. She is a good queen, who cares about her people and she even risks her life for them. The other main girl is more like the innocent and pure type, but still she doesn't lack the strength to protect herself, is very courageous and, like her sister, she risks her life to save others and she doesn't lose to her in terms of beauty. The other characters have also different personalities but even so I was not as attracted to them as I was to the sisters. As I continued reading I got more and more entangled in the characters and their way of living.
I really enjoyed each chapter of this manhwa that I've read so far. I read a lot of romance manhwa, but not many of them remained for long in my mind and this is one of them which I will not forget very soon. Even though I've read only a few chapters of it I have the confidence that at the time when I will finish reading the series I won't be disappointed at all.
