Winner of the 2022 Stabby Award!


 

Elaine is ripped from this world to Pallos, a land of unlimited possibilities made real by a grand System governing classes, skills, and magic.

An ideal society? What is this, a fantasy novel?

Adventures? Right this way!

A Grand quest? Nah.

Friends and loot? Heck yes!

Humans are the top dog? Nope, dinosaur food.

Healing and fighting? Well, everything is trying to eat her.

Join Elaine as she travels around Pallos, discovering all the wonders and mysteries of the world, trying to find a place where she belongs, hunting those elusive mangos, all while the ominous Dragoneye Moons watch her every move.


Hey! Beneath the Dragoneye Moons is my first writing effort, so please be kind, but don’t hesitate to point out the flaws.

The story starts off slowly, more like a slice of life than action-adventure, but it gets there!

I’m going to be posting M-W-F

I do know how the story ends, and I promise if it ever gets dropped, or I stop doing this, I will post the ending. There will be no random “this is the last chapter” out of the blue.

Good orthography and minimal typos. A very polished read. The conversations, that actually sounded like talking stood out positively.

The first few chapters are in my opinion the weakest. But the story progresses to get better from chaper to chapter.

Especially when the forced 'childishness' subsides. Though, the stupid decisions of the protagonist stay a driver of character growth and plot. Though the decisions of the main character are contrasted and contested by the side-characters, that have actual motivations and views that differ from each other. A very refreshing experience, that gives the plot a certain depth.

The story is also heavy on world-building and uses a facsimile of a greco/roman era, including slavery and prostitution. While these themes are not really explored, are they still there and have a clear place. It felt like a breath of fresh air.

The class-system has a few new twists in it and ant its influence on society is repeatedly considered and implemented everywhere. This especially makes the whole world feel more organic and lets it stand above many other Litrpgs I have read.

 

In conclusion, a fluid read with very good world building, side-characters with an actual personality and a dizzy protagonist. Give it a read.

I came to like it a lot more, than I first expected.

The story gets off to a slightly rocky start - the rebirth is hurried through and doesn't feel solid.  Then the main character behaves their age, as in the age of their new reborn body.  It's not clear why.  If someone is late 20s in total age, would they be happy just skipping around and playing in the garden every day?  I guess we can invent excuses about the new body's brain developing in certain ways that encourage certain behaviours?  Would have been nice if the author had given us those reasons though.

I feel the best part is the world building.  It is inventive and feels fairly solid.  Social culture and norms are built in nicely.

Skills and classes are done well.  I wasn't happy about what the character picked as a new additional class 

(the fire mage class in particular was a dissapointment, there are so many more interesting options that would have been better than someone who hates the very thought of killing anything picking a kill class)

 

or some of her skill decisions - but it made sense from the character's point of view - or at least if the character was the age of her new body without the reincarnation.  If we consider the reincarnation additional years then the behaviour in picking new classes and skills is not realistic at all.

A couple of final items:

- Authors notes I found detracted from the story.  The insights broke the suspension of disbelief - and comments like 'I gave this new class because I ran out of ideas for what a 

healer

 can do' was knowledge I would rather not have.  I took to actively avoiding any of the comments and enjoyed the story a lot more that way.
- I noticed the book was on Amazon.  Always good to support authors on RR, so I first went to Amazon.  It is purchase copy only.  If the book was on Kindle Unlimited (like some RR books like Dungeon Crawler Carl) I would have started it there instead.  I think most people on KU tend to only read when the book is KU-enabled (after all I didn't know if I would enjoy it or not, hence deciding to read it on RR).

I am personally not a fan of the healer archetype, like at all really, and that's basically all that this MC is... but even so this story is great! The style is good for the tone, the story is pretty well out together, the grammar is almost perfect, and the characters are entertaining. The elemental lay out is well thought out and balanced, if a tad... rigid for my taste, the LITRPG system is decent and not overly complex, as far as those things go anyways. The societal sexism is well done and addressed from a literary and commentative standpoint, buuuut, as with a lot of other works that try to address this in worlds that have a "system" it doesn't really make any sense for human society to have evolved like that. Still well written and done though. Let's see... my only other nitpicking problem is that the kind of off brand Romanish society they seem to be painted as don't feel very... Roman. They kinda just feel a little... generic? Maybe that's cause we haven't really seen more that a burgher's understanding of the society yet, but idk. I do really like how Fire isn't the op optimal combat element in this universe though. It went to earth or lightning or dark/void instead

The story is one I like, as are the characters. I haven't noticed much sexual content, really, aside from a mention of periods and marriage (maybe a suggestion of rape, but I read a lot of stories and cant remember if that detail was in this one). The characters are well-developed, grammar is good, the story is interesting, and the author doesn't shove status box spam down your throat to up word count, which gains style points. I think it'd be better if the status was in the post-chapter notes instead of the chapter itself, because I think it inflates word count slightly. 

 

Overall a nice read, one of many books I follow, and I recommend you do too. The only chapter that I was even tempted to skip was one where it was a description of a ton of class choices for the main character, but it at least included some humor.

Main character is relatable (to me, at least) and worth investing time to follow her exploits. I know this isn't a romance story, but I hope Elena gets a crush or has some romance going on! She's a hormonal teenager, for crying out loud! Sure, no need for smut necessarily since she's young and would be underage in our society for anyone who wasn't also her age, but she's not underage in the medieval society the story is set in) though there is the sexual content warning already. I get that Elena is put out by the patriarchal society and women having no rights, but that doesn't mean she has control of her hormones, teenage crushes, or so on- just that she wants rights and independence.

Advanced reviews must be at least 200 words. Too bad I don't get a word count on mobile. @royalroad

I've really enjoyed the story so far. I've been reading a lot of fantasy stories, litRPG style stories, and Isekais, and a lot of them are good, but few of them don't make me feel some sort of mental anguish like Beneath the Dragoneye Moons. 

 

I put off continuing after chapter 60 or so because I had caught up after a few days of binge reading. It was a super fun story. Elaine was refreshing and seeing her relationships with all the characters filled my cold little heart with warmth. I genuinely enjoy reading this story and while I wasn't reading it, now that I've started to again, I just dont understand why I put it off for so long.

 

Its another litRPG story, its got a wonderful protagonist, personable characters, and an interesting world. Im not stumbling over sentences because of grammelar, and I can't even remember the last typo it was so minor in my mind compared to enjoying the story. Plus, dinosaurs. Who doesn't like dinosaurs? There isn't some grand quest, and that's fine, its Interesting, and Im so excited to see where Elaine's journey leads her in the plague arc and beyond.

 

Especially excited for the ranger schooling. Love the story, do recommend, please read.

the story is cute and moving, MC adorable slow to power progression and those 0 to 60 OP MC from other stuff. I am waiting to see how explicit the love-y scenes will be when MC older (hoping for a middle road in explicit-ness). the setting is very thought provoking on trying to figure out where this is going to go. I love the status system as it is very easy to follow and understand. The elements web is awesome and synergizes well with the statues system. This gives one a feel of a characters past progress and tiny view of their personality. The story draws you in to find out what is the god of Changes’ plan, what class/ power is MC gonna get, and how the world might change when MC gets that strong. The style of writing because the usage of time skip has been pretty spot on as it prevented the story from stagnating in areas where the stories progression could’ve slowed to a crawl. As well as the style of humor is amazing Artemis’s pun resonate with me. Shockingly enough the more painful the pun the better. These are reasons I can think of on the top of my head of why I love this story.

As others have said, it's pretty obvious that this is the debut story. Even so, the writing flows pretty well except for that one scene with the fire, that's as rough. I greatly look forward to seeing where this is going.

 

Has anyone. Noticed the spell circle keeps changing like every chapert? Be it color, style, words. Wondering what that's all about.

I loved this so much I've bought the books on kindle to support the author and hopefully get more sweet sweet content ❤

I really enjoyed the writing style, it was very engaging, with a light touch of humour. Some chapters maybe better written than others, and the author could work on portraying the emotional impact of the MCs losses (no spoilers!) but it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it a lighter read, so only took a smidgen off 5 stars.

The story is excellent, original, with a seemingly well developed world with history and politics, and reasonable character development although I would still class this as light reading. I'm hoping that we will learn more about the world in future books, and I'm intrigued if not very invested in the snippets of future history.

Grammar excellent, really, can't fault it.

I like the characters, and was upset by the death, which is a good sign, however the author could work on providing more variety of personalities, the main cast have fairly similar attitudes and interactions.  Speaking of character, one niggle right near the start was how the MC had fully developed adult thought processes as an unborn child, but at 8 was very much a child? I felt that the contrast was jarring without explanation. But, the story moved on quickly, so meh, not that important. 

All in all, loved it, want more, highly recommended for a light fantasy series, and support the author so we all get to enjoy more!

Surprisingly fresh take on the incarnation story - setting in a dinosaur roman republic fantasy setting. 

Characters are solid and interesting, the world is cool. The society is roman republic based, instead of traditional euro fantasy, which is very refreshing. And it is a very well thought out world and internally consistent. Magic is standard LitRPG, but very well designed,  not overloaded with math or details. Its a deceptively simple magic system with surprising depth. 

The plot is slice of life. The grammar is spotless. The pacing is solid. Character death is real, but not GoT level at all.

The MC does make it to the pinncle of society fairly quickly (if you consider 140+ chapters "quick") but thats the largest stretch of imagination I encountered (and this is a setting where some people ride dinosaurs).

overall, I highly recommend this story. One of the best newcomers to RR, with a very rapid upload schedule. 5 out of 5.

 

Here are a bunch of extra words to satisfy RR that this is a legit review. How many words are needed to fill this stupid 200 requirement? Apparently more than just this. This is a very long word requirement when succinctness in writing is a virtue.

An original and very good isekai story.

Reviewed at: Chapter 122 – What to do with myself

So when I first picked up this story, I honestly had no expectations at all. I mean, it does sounds like a very classic isekai LitRPG story in a classic fantasy world. 

It isn't.

The first time I noticed that was when **** died. Who expected her to die in was is literally the prologue of the story? But it really set the tone for the story, more so than even the resume; the world isn't nice.

The originality of the story really came through in a really easy fashion: the simple fact that Elaine is a healer is already perplexing enough, but her oath really seems to put her apart from other protagonists. Elaine's character is thus really original and likable, and honestly one of the most 'human' protagonist I've read.

Embellishing all of that is the impressive world building and the well-thought out System and powers. I often pause and think 'wow, that makes so much sense' when explaining a power or an aspect of the system or some world building content. It's also pretty original: not often is humanity at the brink of extinction ^^. 

The story in itself is really interesting and always eagerly wait for the next chapter to come out. I really liked the fact that Elaine isn't "special" -she isn't the one that will restaure the balance in the force, just a normal girl with [Recollection of a Distant Life]. It's also good that the story avoids most of isekai tropes like the Adventurer's Guild and doing a quest to collect medicinal herbs and kill goblins. 

The writing is also very good, the author managing to write action scenes, as well as comedy and truly impactful moments, be it tearful or shocking. Nothing to say about the grammar though, didn't pay it any attention so it's good withouth being revolutionary awesome.

 

All in all, this story that seems to be a classic isekai revels itself to have awesome characters, great world-building and amazing scenes, while being very original and standing out compared to other stories with the same tags.

 

Recommended to basically everyone !
