“I would rather just go out with a bang!” For Princess Cecile, being married off to the emperor of a neighboring empire was unavoidable. But wait, isn’t this the same Emperor Estian who’s notorious for being a heartless sadist? In order to maintain her final shred of dignity, the fearless Cecile demands that her future husband carry her all the way from the carriage to the wedding chapel! If this is her fate, she might as well put up a fight before dying at the hands of the handsome emperor. After all, the only way to fight fire is with… more fire?! Can Cecile become a villain even more fearsome than her tyrant husband? Based on the hit novel.


I’ve been into transmigration and villainess stories for months now so no wonder I enjoyed this manhwa lol. Unlike the usual transmigration with revenge plot that I really really enjoy, this one has its own version of transmigration. And unlike other stories, this one didn’t focus more on the transmigrated character but more on the romance between the “villainess” and the tyrant.

And speaking of romance, I really enjoyed  the romance between the main characters, even though looking back on how they started, I think it was a bit fast. Well, I’m not really a big fan of love at first sight for my romance read, so I guess that’s the reason. Another thing is that, I think it doesn’t suit the “tyrant” ML. Except for that part, I love reading the interaction between the two, especially during the time when the FL is acting like a true “villainess”, hahaha. I think it was really amusing considering her true character, lol.

As for the main characters, I think the character growth of the ML was really satisfying to read. He’s a tyrant who doesn’t blink when killing people because of his childhood, so seeing how he would sacrifice himself for the woman he loves makes my heart ache for him. Just like most tyrant characters, his backstory was also cliche, but I still feel sorry for him.

As for the FL, I think the thing that reminds me of her everytime is her sassiness and goofiness. The first time she met the tyrant, she’s afraid but didn’t accept the fact that she’ll die at his hands mercilessly. Instead of acting like a scaredy cat, she instigated him to kill her instead, hahaha. She’s definitely quite a character, so I guess that’s one of the reasons the ML spared her life considering how rude she was to him, which is a king to an empire. I think that’s the only thing notable about her character, but also her interesting backstory.

I love my HEA so reading about the main characters HEA and for the side characters as well, makes me smile so big. Just reading about their happy married life makes my single heart scream in envy lol. Another thing, I really love adding the babies, so reading about them in the side story makes it even more special for me ♥️

If you are a fan of transmigration romance stories with a touch of fantasy, I’m sure you will enjoy A Villainess for the Tyrant too.

I can see why this one appealed. I do love a feisty heroine and don’t mind if she steps over the line a little to protect herself. I’ve got an old book on my shelf that has a similar plot. I should read it soon.
