I have been seeing so many reincarnation variations like this one. You’d think by now I would be able to resist one when it came across my plate. You’d be wrong. I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, Vol. 1 is the start of a new series by Sarasa Nagase and Mai Murasaki.

For a moment there, it looked like Aileen’s life was falling apart. Then the memories from her past life started flowing into her. Now, she understands that her new life is part of a video game plot, and she knows how to take advantage of the situation.

Rather than relegating her life to that of a villainess, as the game would have her do, Aileen is going to do something different. She’s going to take the story by its horns and tame the final boss herself. Who’s going to stop her?

It seems like I’ve been reading a lot of reincarnated villainess tales lately (there are a veritable ton of them on Tapas, for those wondering). But I’m not going to complain about that. I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, Vol. 1 was a quick and fun read that once again created a unique spin within the genre.

Personally, I really loved the core concept of this one. I like the idea of a character like Aileen taking ownership of her life – it is such a liberating thought, don’t you think? Anyway, it made for a solid foundation here, and I’m clearly going to have to make a point of following this series because I’m too curious to give up now.

Thanks to Yen On and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
