One Thousand years ago, as the old empire fell into ruin, the Church of the nameless God of Light and Mercy rose to prominence by pulling the continent of Mirno out of the darkness left in the wake of its collapse. Now, Abbot, the son of one of the saint's who originally spread the church, and bearing the memories of a young man from another world, goes forth from his home on a new adventure. He dreams of someday being a hero, but he'll have to get over the fact that he can't swing a sword to save his life first. Along the way, he will encounter new allies and old foes in a world of war and monsters, where forces of both light and darkness are soon to clash.

Contrary to what the title might imply...

 

There is a severe lack of sluts. My disappointment is immeasurable.

Jokes aside, healer-type characters are often overlooked, and very rarely the main characters. And when they are, the healing part is an afterthought at best. 

This time, the author has hit the nail on the head with a healer character, and especially the process of healing. He isn't just an adept healing magic user that treks around towns snapping his fingers and curing everyone in sight.

It's a bit early to leave a review two chapters in, so take these stars as a representation of my hopes and dreams.

Edit as of ch.6

My hopes and dreams are still very much alive. But I did find my expectations far surpassed. The story is shaping up really well, to what will be a wholesome adventure of a healer and his party, that will keep you on your toes. 

Alas, there are still ZERO sluts. None, zip, nada. Dammit.

Welp. The story got renamed, and this review seems like the most confusing and contradictory review ever written. Too bad. The content is still great though!

Great story, doesn't really match the title

This is the story of a young healer cleric who decides to seek adventure after his mentor dies. He's a genuinely good and caring person and a true believer. Thus far (as of chapter 5) he's still growing his party (got a warrior and thief so far). There has been some healing, but no slutty behavior, or even usage of the word "slut" so far.

I really don't understand where the title comes from. It conjures up images of a harem story with scantily clad priestess of orgies. (Not that there's anything wrong with that) Instead you have a very sweet and (for lack of a better word) wholesome story about friendship and adventures. It's great, you should read it.

This is a very good start to a story. I think it's great, the only problem I have is being clickbaited by the name "Healslut" and it having no sluts!

A standard story with an amazing main character

Story is fairly standard fantasy so far and lacks a direction somewhat. 

Grammar issues are often enough to be distracting. 

Despite the above issues, Abbot is an amazing character and seeing that character played out so straight as the primary protagonist is honestly very refreshing. He's carrying this story, to the point that (to me at least) it's enough fun to overlook the above issues.

Despite being about as generic as a fantasy world gets in terms of worldbuilding and plot, this story drags you in primarily by it's main character, Abbot. Playing every trope and character archetype straight is actually somehow refreshing amid all the constant "twists" of the Genre that do little to add to their actual originality. The constant update rate also means that readers won't have to wait long for the story to continue, and as a whole the pacing compliments that update rate. The only issues that stand out to me are grammatical, and I would encourage the author to run his chapters through a grammar checking program or get them read by someone else before publishing.

Overall, this is a clean, simple story, with an engaging Protaganist and quality writing!

I don't usually say this about 100 page novels…

But, this is some real quality work here.  I can't really go into the nitty gritty of it, being only 100 pages long as of writing this, but this story gives off a genuine character that You're hardpressed to find in many other novels these days.

 

Shame about the name though...

 

 

 

 

(For context, it was called "It's the healslut's life for me before it had to be changed because of Content rules on RRL)

It lives up to the hype. This one will definitely make it far.
Story is alright. I can't tell whether the author thought far ahead or is just winging it. But I have my hopes up.
Grammar is good.
Style and characters are great. This is its main appeal. If no one told you that you were reading western fiction, you'd think it came straight from Japan.
Overall, this is a very good story. I'm excited for what it has in store, and it's great that it updates as often as it does.

I am really enjoying this straightforward healer-centric story.

Abbot is a GOOD boy. The story so far hasn't been tumultuous or anything, but it is doing its job of keeping me invested and eager to see what is next.

I am having a good time, and you will too if you read It's the Healer's Life for Me. Thx

Typical premise that makes for a refreshing story

 I was interested in this story since I read the first chapter (the only chapter at that point) and now that I have read all the available chapters I can confidently say that this story is exactly what I expected back then and the reason it caught my interest: a wholesome adventure in a "standard" fantasy world that doesn't try to introduce any crazy twists to the basic premise and yet manages to be extremely entertaining.

Style and Grammar: I'm not a native english speaker so I have little to say here. The style is okay, though the sentence structure and the way some dialogues are written can be confusing. There are also a lot of grammar mistakes but rather than show a lack of skill on the author's part, it feels like the typical mistakes that one would make while writing and not notice until one re-reads the whole thing.

There is someone pointing out these mistakes in the comments of every chapter anyway, so I assume future readers won't come across them.

Story:  The world is nothing I haven't seen before and yet the focus on small details like how curses work, the different types of holy magic and the cultural differences not only between races but between regions makes me feel like the author actually put effort into worldbuilding instead of just giving his setting a few gimmicks and calling it a day. Same goes for the story, it feels like the author wants us to enjoy Abbot's travels rather than just rush it so we get to the parts where his party is fighting something.

It makes me want to learn more about this world and see where Abbot's adventures will take him so the author did a good job there.

Characters: So far, none of the characters are extremely complex but they are certainly charming, specially Abbot.

Having a protagonist whose skillset is pretty much focused on healing (with some minor evildoers-smithing spells) is really refreshing. His way of thinking, devotion and more or less peaceful nature make him stand out when compared to the typical protagonist of this kind of stories. In particular, the fact that he is a religious character without being preachy, a joke or an asshole in disguise make him really interesting and unique, since such characters are extremely rare, even more as protagonists.

 The other characters are also interesting and the fact that their lives and relationships don't revolve around the protagonist makes them feel like real people instead of glorified tools whose only purpose is to serve and praise the protagonist. Even the characters that don't seem like they will stick around for too long have some of that charm.

 I haven't seen enough of the antagonists to say much about them but the ones introduced so far do seem intriguing and their skillsets are different and pretty cool. I hope we get to learn more about them.

Conclusion: Can't wait for more chapters. Some actual sluts would be nice too, I guess.
