A beautiful novel, with a world that feels alive. Plus it has a dragon.
The story is on the realism side of fantasy. You can find magic, magical beings, and monsters, but it's not the everyday business of most people. The world is built enough to feel like it could exist, even though some places are hard to imagine. A lot of time is spent on interactions, but there are some fights that are very impactful without the meaningful grind.
No RPG-like stats. It's a fantasy world without a reincarnated person or something like that.
Characters feel and interact believably as people would. There are emotions and hidden agendas moving things along. People struggle, do the wrong thing for the right reason and so on.
Harem side is yet to appear in 26 chapters. There is main par that's solving thing out, taking their time. This is important as both of them have decently established who they are and what they feel.
There is no love at first sight, brainwashed women fawning over MC or cardboard heroines that exist to only make MC looks more cool or awesome. Romance is slow, but it does not appear without a reason.
MC have friends, I know it may sound shocking, but they aren't all females or played for jokes.
Villain side could get a bit more fleshed out instead of painting them black, they should have some deeper reasons why they do their thing.
I have no complaints, I can hardly asset complexity, but it's been done the right way. It gets its reader into the story. If I care about characters and don't struggle reading paragraphs, it's well done.
Almost perfect. As a person who has English as a second language, I don't see any issue. Maybe some occasional slip-up, but with so many pages out there it's like a drop in a bucket.
I recommend this story, it has a great feeling. The first chapter may have not been the best, but it's important for later. If you stick around longer, you would discover great read.
This story has been a amazing read, with the sort of adventure it is.
This story follows the Knight Gersius, who is a warrior-priest of the God Astikar who fights a losing war, he along with a group of men sets out on a impossible quest to save their people, to fullfill a prophecy most do not even understand at all. Yet it does not go as planned, for he is soon again alone, then he meets Lilly in questionable circumstances, with both of them first being cold to eachother. On their journey together, they slowly warm up to eachother, with Lilly learning more about the world and its people, then tragedy strikes, for there are conspiracies ongoing and they are in the center of it all.
This story reminds me so much of the printed Fantasy books i used to read a lot, its sort of the same style of story, with shared general plot elements, having well constructed worlds with deep lore, great characters that show emotion and develop over the course of the story.
So lets get actually started.
The very best part about this story are the characters, and they are downright amazingly written by the clearly skilled author. They feel like real people, with how much they change and grow throughout the course of the story.
The characters i like the most are the two main characters Gersius and Lilly, they are by far the best written characters in this story, they are also the characters that change the most during the story. I really like how their relationship does develop, from being a cold forced one, to them slowly warming up to eachother, and eventually falling in love with eachother after certain events make them even closer to eachother than before.
The other characters this story has, cannot be ignored also, they are well written in their own ways, including the villians (ill be honest that theres just too few details yet to actually gauge them.)
Its a very well constructed world, with a very deep lore, of which yet few has been shown so far. Interesting cultures, that are also sort of original. The magic used in this story is sort of mysterious, yet also with clear defined rules. The best example of this is fire-weaving.
The plot so far aint exactly original, its what can be seen in many Fantasy stories. However it is well excuted, with a lot of focus on the characters themselves instead of the world.
The style used for the character viewpoints is the 3rd person omniscient narrator one, which is sort of tricky to pull off well, but i feel like the author has done a great job at it so far.
The author is amazing at describing scenes, doing them with high detail, like you could imagine seeing it all. This also goes for action scenes.
The author has done his worldbuilding and infodumping in a good way, that they arent overwhelming at all. One of the things that i like about it, is that the author has written a grand mystery for this story, with releasing small hints and secrets to it, that people can notice, and connect the dots.
The pacing so far has been good, with it having a good balance between slow and fast pacing. (i will be fair that i got distracted a lot while i was reading this story.)
Now for all the good this story is, sadly it also has some problems.
The most major one is grammar usage, the author says he is self-taught at english, and while it has been good overall, the flaws with that do show throughout the story, with multiple spelling mistakes, missing puncuation, wrong capitalization. Ill be honest that the author really needs a editor for this story, so that flaw can be fixed.
Another problem that i got sort of bothered by, is that the plot of the first book, has a lot of character drama ongoing in it, and that keeps going on until at a point i felt like it was getting tiresome, thankfully only book 1 has that level of character drama going on. I can see people having a problem with the large amount of drama there, so if someone does not want to read that, i recommend they turn away now.
I trust in the author being capable of reworking this story, so the annoying aspects of it get worked out, and it becomes a even better read than it currently is. Maybe even considered to be of the same quality as a published big-name Fantasy story.
Dont let the harem tag scare you away from reading this story, its actual well-written harem (love triangle currently as of book 2), that develops in a slow but good way. Also dont expect to read a standard royalroad story, its more like the published Fantasy stories in style and writing.
The author has done a amazing job at this story, with having carefully planned it all for years.
Certainly a good story, with some small mistakes, i can recommend anyone who wants a break from standard royalroad Fantasy to read this story, if you can get through the annoying parts, you will really like the story, its world and the amazing characters.
I just caught up to the story and I simply had to get this review out there.
This story, in my opinion, masterfully reads like a published novel (with some grammer mistakes, but I don't really care about that) with amazingly real characters, a beautiful writing style, a story that was obviously meticulously planned out and refined for a very long time, and an author who seems very involved with the readers and is always trying to improve this wonderful story.
Easily one of the overall best stories I have ever read (not just on this site, but anywhere) and most definitely the most underrated one I have seen by a large margin - This is a spawling epic that I would generally assume has thousands of followers and favorites.
But hey, hopefully that day will soon come to pass as more and more people get enraptured into this unbelievable tale of fantasy and adventure!
I don’t really have much words to say about this, the writing is amazing. This story is very well written and deserves a read regardless of what you like. Writers of fantasy and a hero’s journey scarcely appear nowadays and this one captures the essence. The start is very slow and I had to put it down before giving it another chance but boy, it sure paid off. Once you get into the rhythm of the novel, you get to appreciate something that rarely shows up in the novels here in RR(or maybe it has shown up more as I left) that is, multiple characters feeling alive. They don’t just talk to each other(most authors do do this, yet miss something) they share and ponder over their goals and motivations and develop as the story goes on. And that is what i consider the best aspect of the novel, the character development. In addition to that, the world building adds on nicely to how the story meshes. All in all it is a great story and I look forward to more chapters.
I will say that I do not like many romance stories. I find too many of them have very one-sided relationships and usually focus on a single character attempting to seduce and romance another characters.
This story gives us two well developed and mature characters that mutually fall in love with eachother over time and harship. There is no one getting miraculously swept off there feet by someone out of there reach, or saving a jade beuaties life and adding +1 to the harem.
The fantasy plot and action scenes are also very solid, but I found the focus to be the romance, so that is what I mainly reccomend.
It is very refreshing to see a romance of equals in web fiction, and I highly reccomend this story to anyone who likes romance even a little bit.
welp it is now 1-26 and the story is wonderful The character building is definetley the star of the show in this novel. My only complaint at this point is I have no clue at all how this is going to work out as a harem since i am so invested in Gersius and Lilly as characters i cant see another relationship happening at all. Other than that absolutely beautiful character driven book. Bit of warning for others dont expect an action orriented book there is some but it is not the story focus at all. Not that im complaining or anything actions books are a dime a dozen on the internet.
This is a really early impression 1-5 is as far as it has gotten but I hate to see a good story without reviews will update once it is further along. The major thing I really like about this story is that the characters feel like people and not convenient vessels for tropes or a power fantasy they are terrified at there situation and way out of their depth. Particularly in a lot of harem\fantasy stories characters can feel like a mashup of tropes and not an actual character particularly with regards to romance interests and so far the female mc \ love interest feels like an actual person which I am pretty impressed by since I have seen other stories struggle to do this in 50+ chapters
Hidden Gem in RR. Just don't drop the novel. It's too good to be dropped.
I was afraid of harem tag, it took me a while to muster the courage to start reading it, and... I definitely don't regret any second of it!
Yes it's harem, in later parts of the story tho (more like in the middle), as much as I was always avoiding this tag, I'm really amazed how much I enjoy it in this one.
Most of the main characters are well developed (it takes more time for some of them tho) and they are really likeable, even if annoying at the beginning.
If I have to mention one thing I'd like to see improved, then that's definitely antagonists, I'd like to see some backstory for them and why did they end up being people they are now, I do really like antagonists with a 'real' purpose and I love to think about it, how would I end up when in their shoes? as of current chapter (somewhere in the middle of book 3) I can only see them being one-dimensional, although I've seen some foreshadowing for a main group done in recent chapters.
Saying so I need to point out that they feel like typical stepping stone for MC to drive the story/drama - I hope it's not like this, I'd really like to see something more, like good/dedicated ppl with a purpose, just making some bad decisions and ending up on the 'wrong' side, paying for that with life if needed.
Still I do really love the story, thanks for entertainment author and keep up a good work.
Having just read chapter one of book 2, this story hasn’t failed to deliver since it began. Yes, I initially saw this story tagged under the “Harem,” tag which may have been the reason why I clicked it, but this story is so much more than that. Rather than looking forward to the “Harem,” I have grown to love all the characters and the depths of their personalities to the point that I had to remind myself that this story was written by someone in their freetime. -WOW.
The few “miniscule” things I can think of that need improvement are a few typos here and there but otherwise I have been beyond impressed with the quality displayed.
In comparrison to other stories with similar tags, “Atros Imperium,” which in itself is a very different story in many respects is one that I think of when comparing the quality of your story to another. Both Atros Imperium and Dragon Knight Prophecy are in my opinion some of the best that RRL has to offer in the genre.
Keep it up!! This story has been amazing so far!!
One of the highest quality novels i've read on this site, only a few word errors but very well driven story and character development.
