Azarinth Healer

Original ONGOING Action Adventure Fantasy Female Lead LitRPG Magic
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Sexual Content
  • Traumatising content

A new world with nearly unlimited possibilities. A status, classes, magic and monsters. Sounds good? Well, for Ilea it didn't come quite as expected as for some other protagonists, nor was there a king or god to welcome her.

The grand quest? Well, she might figure that out someday but for now, a new world with new food is prize enough. Her fists at the ready, she's prepared to punch and get punched, however long it takes and however many limbs she might have to regrow.

A story I've started writing now quite a while ago. Transported to another world, somewhat standard fantasy setting with my beginner attempts to make it dark but funny. There are Litrpg elements here but I do hope it's not too heavy and annoying. The fights should be interesting and aren't just numbers vs numbers. Contrary to the title the protagonist will be quite an offensive fighter.

Ilea Spears is your average sarcastic kick-boxing fast food worker and soon to be student. She will be transported to another world rather conventionally and will be confronted with survival in the wild.

Give it a shot and let me know what you think. My experience is incredibly lacking. If you find yourself hating it early on, do convey your anger in a detailed comment or review :) I want to get better but without any feedback it's simply quite difficult.

Quick heads up: Around chapter 120 there are a bunch of longer PoV changes that I discontinued again shortly after. The Arc around chapters 150-200 is darker than the rest and the themes shift quite a bit. Just know that it goes back to what you've come to know after that section.

Thank you for reading.

Quick update June 2019: Many complaints regarding the formatting, specifically spacing in conversations and of course the usage of the present tense in the first 36 chapters have been addressed. I'm of course learning by the day but compared to how it was before it should be an improvement at least.

Easygoing Battle-Junkie LitRPG

There is no crisis to be resolved, the mc is op but not to the point where she will have to step forward to save the world. This is more the easygoing, slice of life of a battle-junkie grinding out her skills and levels from the system.

I actually prefer stories that are just about batttle junkies (or other eccentrics like crafting-maniacs or mad-scientist), which this story seems to be. It;s not a tense story about a hero with the weight of the world on thier shoulders, not about offending young masters and then exterminating their clan, not about facing the entire world. Its not just a humourous slice of life without any action either, though I find it funny.

This is the simple adventure of a slightly op battle-junkie type girl. The fighting scenes are great and entertaining. The slice of life is light, funny and refreshing. The system is grindy, straightforward and(for her)power progressive(fast).

Edit(36 chapter): Changed score after reading detailed reviews abit(especially oinos and ninetails). Though I have a different view on scoring, the minor errors are there, though not very impactful to the quality of the work and are becoming rarer. MC will hopefully pick up interesting long-term companions/side characters soon.

Edit: I think I'm kinda dumb to just realise she has a job that treats magic like qi. She literal has most the skills qi cultivators do.

Author:"Don't expect anything special here."

Fuck off mate this is better than like 98% of everything on RR.

Competantly written, little to no mistakes, characters thatr have CHARACTER!!(something all too rare on RR) and pretty good world building (show not tell , no aweful word-wall of exposition) MC not too over/underpowered has a cool "special" gimmiky thing but the way she gets powerful with that is with hard work not handouts, and even then, any fights that are given a bit of detail are fairly close and downright brutal.

8/10 fuck you author, this is something special and you know it.

Well, everybody and their dog has written an overview of this fiction and I'm not the one person to be deterred by that, so here's one more to the avalanche.

I've been reading this opus periodically since the time it had about 200 pages (that's when I like to pick up fresh stuff) and it has gotten progressively better. I remember the time I started reading it and thought: "the grammar is weird and the POV even weirder", but it was still at least a little bit enjoyable so i grit my teeth and stuck with it.

Lo and behold, it has gotten a lot better and the authour even revwote the bad grammar and the weird POV in the earlier chapters. And since then it has became the nicely flowing slice of life LitRPG that you can take as a bechmark for others, that still has stuff to go for.

P.S.: I've since reread the whole (up to now around 220 chapters) story twice and still find it nice.

The story which updates I look forward to the most

I spent some time thinking about which category I was least content with to withdraw half a star so that my review doesn't come off as "I indiscrimately give 0 or five stars to everything I like" But I couldn't decide, so I just left it like that.

I first encountered this story when it was trending, read two chapters and was put off by the (then) mix of present and past time in the story. So I put it on my "Read later" list, because it had promise and sometimes the author comes back around and fixes such things. Well, the author did.

This is an amazing story and even better, it gets updated very on a very regular basis. The characters feel alive, you can understand everyones motivations, the MC is relatively OP, but earned it the hard way and the combat is intensely satisfying.

 

 

Spoiler: Spoiler

 What I also really like, is how the author handles crises. The demon invasion was not an "End of the world" crisis, and could have theoretically been handled without the main characters' interference. The Golden Lily are a threat but at the moment are not actively targeting the MC. This leaves room for the main character to do what she enjoys (eating&fighting&exploring)

easy going story that felt great to read

Reviewed at: Chapter 352 Azarinth Sentinel

This story is pretty simple and yet each day I find myself refreshing continuously to check for updates. 
TBH I think the author(if i dont remember it incorrectly then the author did say this) didn't expect to get this much attention and thus wrote a fast action filled with major fast boostups in the start but then slowed down to actually work on the quality.  
There can be some or a lot of plotholes but I like the story and can put those aside for the most part and enjoy the read. 
Good to have a relaxing read.
edit: after 300th or so chapter, it has become a chore to read. atleast for me.

Stale loaf of delicious bread!

Reviewed at: Chapter 407 Air Pressure

As of chapter 400 it has gotten a bit stale, dont really feel worried for the main character no matter what situation she is in. Seems like the author is trying to make us emotionally invested in the side characters who are a bit more squishy though, so i fear for one or two of them.

Chapters also seems to be drawn out a bit more as some have commented. 

Grammar seems to have dropped a bit the last 100 chapters or so, can't really give full score on that. Nothing major, just a few words that arejumbledtogether here and there.

Can't say much that havent been said by others, overall this is in my opinion one of the better stories here and i will keep on reading for as long as the author finds it in his/her/it's heart to keep posting chapters =)

Amazing work, up to Ch 398

everyday soon-to-be-student gets randomly ported to fantasy world, picks up powerful rare class and starts to punch everything.

 

So far, nothing special, but the execution is phenomenal. The writing improves later on, making thoughts/system messages/speech more distinct which saves a lot of thinking. The writing style is solid with very few errors. The occasional punctuation, double word or other thing slips by, but nothing serious.

Lets start with the MC. She's easygoing, maybe even happy go lucky, but unlike almost all such characters, she is neither dumb nor oblivious nor simple. She can see consequences of her actions, has some understanding of how people work etc. She decides, every time, what she's going to take seriously and what not which makes her a character instead of a charicature.

While a battlejunkie, she is not a braindead battle junkie, choosing her battles to be challenging but, in her eyes, not suicidal. She does get in over her head occasionally and she runs. There are no convenient terrains to kill the monster she couldn't, no shortcuts, no lucky turnarounds. OP, certainly, but no divine luck or anything aside from her starting class and how she got it.

The people she meets also have their own motives and feel like actual people and give depth to the world. Similarly, the world feels like, well, a world. Things are moving at their own pace, things following one another and the world really isn't about the MC, just one amongst many. There is still enough going on, enough mysteries to puzzle on but the MC isnt the only one trying to find things, nor specifically the one getting the furthest, but it absolutely keeps it from being only about fighting and slice of life.

Solid Progression Story

Azarinth Healer is a solid litRPG with satisfying and continuous power progression. 

The premise of the story is a portal fantasy where the MC finds herself with a battle healer class, and then proceeds to train, fight, and grind to get stronger.

The story currently releases 6 decent-length chapters a week, which keeps the pacing up even when the MC is training/grinding/studying. The grammar is good, with few major errors. The characterization is straightforward and consistent, with Ilea being a pragmatic and mature adrenaline junkie whose goal is to challenge herself and get stronger. 

A strong point of the story is how well the litRPG system has been designed and handled so far. It is an interesting 2-class/person system with well-defined capabilites and rules. Ilea's progression has been very satisfying and has felt earned.

The story refreshingly does not involved any save-the-world situations, and has mostly been allowed to evolve organically as the MC adventures. The worldbuilding has been quite well done as well.

Overall, I would strongly recommend this story.

(Review as of Chapter 247)

Well written, believable characters!

At Chapter 243 as of now.

I have read many stories on here. Most of the time the characters act and react very emotional and oftentimes plain stupid. While there is an argument to be made that this is just their character, it's still bad writing in my opinion.

It's like in many popular anime in which the protagonist is extremely dumb but strongly driven and thus can overcome every foe. Their sudden flashes of inspiration seem to be deus ex machina. Their foresight pulled out of the author's ass.

All of that is not true for Azarinth Healer, while Ilea is not quite sane, her actions are comprehensible. There is no harem, there is no super-intelligent adversary, there is no big bad villain, it's just life. A life in a strange world, but life nonetheless and the characters act accordingly. I also like the author's take on romantic relationships, it seems mature and not like a teenagers fantasy. You don't always need to have a convoluted plot with twists at every turn to make a good story. True, there isn't much at stake but that's how it is in life outside of books. The story is more about plain adventuring, learning new things, seeing forgotten lands... which is interesting because the world-building is done nicely.

All in all, one of the best stories on RoyalRoad. In quality comparable to Metaworld Chronicles and Mother of learning. At least in my opinion.

This story is a beat 'em up action litrpg. The setting has a lot of potential, with a rich backstory hinted at through various environmental discoveries and dialogue. The writing is decent enough, until it comes to characters and character interaction.

By far the biggest strengths of the story is the visceral, exciting fight scenes. It's refreshing to see a character actually utilize the full breadth of their litrpg arsenal, as I find most other stories seem to sideline a lot of abilities. And the author makes it a point to show just how strong a monk-type healer/fighter hybrid is in a world as dangerous as the one our MC has found themselves in.

The main character herself is largely uninteresting (don't confuse this with the litrpg elements). We hardly know anything about her (even 400+ chapters in), and the fact that she's from a different world is largely irrelevant after the first 50 or so chapters. It's suitable for an action-focused story, but there's work that needs to be done if this story ever wants to expand further than next-battle-please.

I previously reviewed this when around ~180 chapters were out and mentioned that there were aspects of the story that weren't... good. The romance, the sociopathic tendencies of the main character (with no explanation as to why), and the downright cringe-worthy demon-mindlfayer-thing.

As of chapter 417 I can safely say the author has definitely hit their stride. I noticed a distinct improvement in the writing quality around chapter 200, I believe that's when they decided to go full time so that makes sense.
