Vainqueur the Dragon
by Void Herald
Vainqueur Knightsbane is your average dragon: a giant, fire-breathing lizard who loves to take naps on his golden hoard, kidnap princesses for fun, and make the life of adventurers miserable. Vainqueur's only pleasure in life is to watch his treasure get bigger, one coin at a time.
So when a would-be thief turned unwilling minion tells him about "classes," "levels," and "quests," Vainqueur wonders if maybe, just maybe, he should consider a career change.
After all, why bother hunting monsters for free when you can get paid for it?

I wasn't sure at the start but man once it gets going it GOES I would recommend this to everyone the author is amazing and the characters are great it gets extra brownie points for JOJO references
A overall fun and engaging story with great characters and an interesting concept for a oversaturated genre.
The fiction has a lot of good humor and doesn't take itself to seriously, which I think works well for this type of story.
Would reccomend to anyone who wants a enjoyable fiction to read.
BEHOLD THE MAJESTY OF VAINQUEUR, MANLINGS, FOR HE IS THE GREATEST CHARACTER TO EVER LIVE, IN FANTASY OR REALITY.
this is not a joke. i do not have a 5 ton dragon who can melt steel beams with his breath looking over my shoulder. I am not a hostage. i do not need help. I DO NOT NEED HELP
welcome to the story of the second calamity of man. In this story, a dragon's human minion is extorted into making him rich beyond any of the other dragons. This human was never asked to be an isekai protagonist, but became one anyways because a sentient dice thought it would be funny to put a person who was evil on earth into a world who just overcame one calamity in a demon king, and now has a second one coming- the greatest of all dragons.
I don't think i've ever laughed so hard as i have over the all the things Victor has to go through. Seriously. you need to pick this up. It'll make your day a little brighter.
Review of Vainqueur the Dragon
The book Vainqueur the Dragon is a story written by Maxime J. Durand following the arrogant dragon Vainqueur as he along with his new Chief of staff Victor Dalton as they go on comedic adventures across the world of Outremonde, along the way crushing and creating Empires as Vainqueur tramples with the subtlety of a bull and Victor tries to make the best of the situation.
This creates an atmosphere of comedy as minions are recruited and enemies are slain.
Story: The story is chaotic in a good way which never bores you as situation after situation piles on whether it is at the expense of Minion Victor, or is a consequence of the not so subtle lack of seriousness which manifests in most of the citizens. That is not to say that the story lacks in seriousness, which it definitely does not as the story has its comedic and serious moments which are cleanly switched between showing the authors ability to transparently switch in between scenes.
In total id rate the story as a 4.5/5 as it can still not be defined as a truly flawless masterpiece like Painting the Mists due to the traits which make it such a masterpiece it’s chaos and comedy, but I feel that the story took a hit due to this during the beginning arcs as they didn’t feel as they could.
Grammar: The storys grammar flows much like water in a river without obstructions, the grammar is a strong point of the story as the author is adept at using words to inspire feelings of good and bad. The grammar complements the story and style in such a way that one simply cannot find many issues to take into account.
The grammar is an easy 5/5.
Style: The style of Vainqueur is its strongest point, as I’ll freely admit that the story has managed to make me laugh at many points from it’s unique style of writing. Take examplewise Vainqueur being able to hear the difference between a v and a ‘V,’ it’s a strangely endearing style which entertained me from start to finish leading me to giving the style a 5/5.
Character: The characters which surround Vainquer and Victor(V&V) while they can be comical relief are also wonderfully written so that they feel real and physical when it matters, as characters truly change as events pass and things change in a chaotic but still with a tinge of realism. But while there still do come up issues with the characters of Vainqueur the Dragon but it more than makes up for it with its delude of character 5/5.
Overall Score: Taking all of the aforementioned information into account I give the Story Vainqueur the Dragon a 4.5/5 as whilst the story has its faults it is an incredible story swimming in character and personal style which oozes charisma.
A Story filled with laughs and comedic moments and filled with characters who make you laugh. The dragon especially is a extremely fun character. The Story so far is very entertaining and am just waiting for more
Well... What to say. I stumbled into this fiction, when I got on Royalroad. It had like... 14 chapters released?
And up until its inevitable end, it didn't indeed disappoint.
But say you, people from the future, did you really expect Void Herald to disappoint? He might not yet be up there with piratebea, but there is a thing to be said about consistency. Everything the person touches is gold.
Not the occasional diamond some other authors dig up, but as if on a conveyor belt, a steady stream of gold.
Vain- gold. Never die twice? Gold. The perfect run?... Actually gotta start reading that... And yes. I don'tregret one penny I spend on their patreon.
I like the style a lot. It taking a twist on the Isekai genre is wonderful.
The story... is sometimes a bit weird, which fully fits within its style. The way every arc turns out, is fresh, new and funny.
The grammar... Well. Is fine.
And the characters are what drives this story home. They are funny, if sometimes stereotypical (which is the whole point... yeah), but always entertaining enough, as not to break the immersion.
This story is a well rounded package that has everything one could wish from a great story. Nothing godly. But great.
I just spent the last hour laughing so hard that my ribs are aching, my throat is sore, and I can barely read my eyes are so teary. This is one of the funniest things I've read, and I read a lot. Strongly recommended - when finished, I expect this to become an all time favorite novel (please, please finish/continue it). If I could give six stars I would.
This book is BLEEPING HILARIOUS!!! Great premise and execution, and even great grammar and sentence structure! You have to read this book, and I personally can't wait to see where this story goes!
It’s a unique premise, set in a classic world. It’s basically about a dragon who realizes, “Why be the end boss when you can be the one who kills the end boss.”
The grammar, spelling, and general technical skill this story is written with do their job wonderfully- they make the story more understandable, flow better and let me just leap in, in addition to doing their basic job of simply not breaking flow or immersion.
Edited because I noticed some mistakes, can't give 5 stars
Void has a certain flair to their works, it feels like a flight of fancy, yet my feet are still on some sort of surface. Kind of like jet-skiing or windsurfing. Which I like.
Despite being a whimsical, light hearted (in tone) comedy there is an emergent (background?) plot. It is emerging very tastefully and organically in my opinion, the hints are intriguing and what has been revealed captivating. I like the shape of the plot and think it adds a dimension to the story without taking away from its premise and style.
Finally, the characters. I love reading the character interactions and delight in the personalities on display- both of which fit in to the story's feel by being super-realistic whimsical caricatures of people that could exist.
Thank you Void. To anyone else reading this, try a few chapters
