Hello everyone

A story I've started writing now quite a while ago. Transported to another world, pretty standard fantasy setting with my amateur attempt to make it a bit 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. There's magic, monsters and some numbers.

Give it a shot and let me know what you think. I'm a beginner at writing and 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.

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.

Chapters usually 2.5 - 3k words

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.

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.

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.

Can't really say much, other than it's goddamn amazing. The consistency the author has shown since the start of the novel, coupled with the overall great grammar (after the editing done in the earlier chapters), the immersive world building with the little twists put on standard fantasy tropes and the more-than-badass main character Ilea has made this fiction my favourite one on the site. Granted, the characters can be a little weak at times, but that applies only in the first 120 or so chapters. All I can say is, try it out and see for yourself how good it is.

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.

It's absolutely wonderful, I love the idea of warrior healers, and I keep imagining a story on it and then BAM I found this brilliant depiction of what a unique warrior healer would be like. The humurous tone throughout the story also makes it easy to read, and I'm someone who like skipping over the more boring descriptors, but the author just keeps things interesting throughout - love it!

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)

This is my favorite.

This is my favorite novel on this site. So I'm biased :)

 

Something about this novel really speaks to me. Something how the main charcter isn't perfect but has morals. Is a battle junkie and just enjoys being in the world. The world that everyone fears and hates, she seems to love and reveal in it. 

Seeing humainty for what it is and finding solace in solitude is what really sells this to me. Please never stop writing. If you start another novel please keep with the theme of solitude :)

One of the bestawaiting

This is probably one of the best stories on this site. It starts out a little rough and has a few slow areas if you are waiting for new chapters from week to week but the author has been very consistent with release times. Mc is not an emotional complex one but she knows it and makes no excuses for it. 

You will find yourself eagerly awaiting to see what kind of trouble she gets into just to make herself a little tougher.

A very good story but still with space to grow

An awesome story. Although it might seem like another LitRPG, it's definitely not. The style of the story and the way the system works is different from the others. The author has broken the norm that most such stories have. The Protagonist is an independent female ( my first book with a female main) and there is no harem!!! also the author doesn't repeat his story arcs at all. And the protagonist isn't an undefeatable godly figure and experiences near death experiences a lot. The only downside IMO is that the author seems to be afraid to kill the side characters. We shouldn't feel that everyone is safe. It takes away from the excitement of the story. Although please don't kill Kriyan.
