A part-time enforcer, all Jay cared about was those closest to him and a job that let him hit people. That was before a betrayal sent him packing. Four years later he’s back, but his former boss thinks he lost his edge. Reduced to proving himself, he's thrown a straightforward task: collect on an overdue debt from some elf.

As if life was ever that simple. With a vampire ex-girlfriend out for blood and a friend caught up in something dangerous, he has his work cut out for him. Jay always thought he was human, but his search for the elf raises questions that threaten his identity.

Wow this is quite good

Comes across like a well written urban fantasy Harry Dresden type novel quite good too.  It goes farther into the urban magic community that novels like The Harry Dresden novels skirt. extremly good grammar and story. only weakness is the characters and even then they are not that weak. they could just use a tiny bit more fleshing out

Read this. Do it. You'll thank me later.

Before the actual review a couple of disclaimers.

First: I'm not a native English speaker so please be mindful that there could be mistakes in my spelling and grammar.

Second: This is my first time writing a review, I'm usually not bothered to, but I felt that this story really deserves more attention than what it's getting.

 

TL;DR Read this, you'll like it

 

Trying to describe this story is difficult.

The first thing that comes to mind is originality, most stories on this site are about Virtual Reality, Reincarnation, people transported to a different world and generally impronted on a canonic fantasy setting but Royal Scales is different: this story is set up like a modern day urban fantasy.

The characters, both the MC and secondary ones, are well rounded, each one evolves and has a complete personality, there are no monodimensional and stereotypical characters.

The story is well paced, it's like reading a book and not a web novel and extremely pleasing to read, there are little to no mistakes thanks to the author's wife that does a really good job at proofreading and editing.

This is a seriously great story. Relatable and flawed characters and a well defined modern fantasy world.

 

personally love the focus on the differing personality traits and culture of the non humans.

Just one more chapter before I go to sleep.....

 

Can help it it just reminds me of NIGHTSIDE SERIES by Simon R. Green in some areas.

 

Couldn't help myself and I have to finish it in one go. Really great.

This is one of those stories that just suck you in.  I read a lot of the stories on this site in one sitting, but this one was to the point i stayed up until my eyes were blurry and ignored mealtimes.

 

Try it it won't dissapoint.

Great story that has a interesting setting. I love how you have the different races setup and how they interact. The story is well written but the way that things are described can be difficult to picture at times. Could just be me as i have a hard time getting his regular senses and tactical senses mixed up in my head. I feel that it definitely adds character to the story as a whole though. Great character and I love the development that you give your characters in both stories of yours i am reading. Just like continue online this story is written a lot like a book which is great. I think the best part of this story is the world that you built up with the conspiracy in there between the races.

Tragic hero till now.

The narrative moves smoothly.. Apart from the MC from whose PIC we see the story we can see the other characters as real.. The story is so good that it makes you so empathize with the protogonist who is getting shat upon again and again.. You feel pity about him and you wanna bash his friends so much that you would want to kill them.. Though survival of his original friends is important his newer relationships are lost.. That just makes you plain mad.. Great story but expecting some positive ends for mc otherwise throwing this book away for keeping my insanity. A

The pacing for the story is well done. The character development is very good. All characters are unique. The world building is very good. Everything is well thought out and well crafted.

We don't read fiction to experience the routine, we read fiction to experience the extraordinary. GG

Meh, he could've rented a uhaul and moved all his stuff away, it seems to me like the mc REALLY doesn't get anything out of being in this town. It's not like he didnt make anything else "mine" during his travels...all this yelling and bitching, and getting his ass kicked...it isnt interesting. I read from the beginning to here, but i think ill call it quits. All I read was a series of events bar. job. house. girlfriend. daniel. bar. girlfriend. bar. bar. house. girlfriend. job. bar. daniel. bar. bar. bar. and all that entailed was bitching moaning, getting drunk, bleeding all over the floor, shouting, getting drunk, and getting beat up. The intrigue is sort of interesting, I'm sure it goes somewhere, but we're like 40k+ words deep and there is no fun to be had. I mean the intro is sort of interesting, but it feels like the MC was just jacking off in the woods, we keep hearing about how awesome he was, but now he's bitchmade. The repetition of his daily routine isn't exciting. The series of events I described is rudimentary and mind numbing. My brain is literally fried. We don't read fiction to experience the routine, we read fiction to experience the extraordinary. GG

Why does RRL's best fiction so often get the least views?

 Style:  We’re in the main character’s head and he’s got a unique style of narration.  It doesn’t bore by any means. 

Story:  Compelling.   There are several layers of mystery going on, but it’s anchored by a very human side – of dealing with one’s own demons and coming through to the other side.  Some kickass action doesn’t hurt either.

Characters:  The best thing about this story.  Everyone has been well-developed so far, and I’m just as much interested in seeing people communicate in here as I am reading about the main character completing objectives.  There are no idiots here – just adults with their own motives and backgrounds.

*****
I would definitely enjoy sitting down at a bookstore with a drink to read this.  The quality is a few notches above what this site ordinarily offers, and that includes the “Best Rated” list.  You won’t be disappointed.

 

 

UPDATE AT END OF BOOK 2:  

I completely loved it.  I can't wait for more.  Pacing is amazing - there's a tremendous sense of escalation throughout the second act.  Characterization is on point - no one seems like a dud character.  The mystery is still there but enough hints are out there to tantalize.  There's a good balance of emotions, of fortunes, of character strengths and weaknesses.

And there's even more badassery.
