The Perfect Run is now available on Amazon Kindle.
Ryan "Quicksave" Romano is an eccentric adventurer with a strange power: he can create a save-point in time and redo his life whenever he dies. Arriving in New Rome, the glitzy capital of sin of a rebuilding Europe, he finds the city torn between mega-corporations, sponsored heroes, superpowered criminals, and true monsters. It's a time of chaos, where potions can grant the power to rule the world and dangers lurk everywhere.
Ryan only sees different routes; and from Hero to Villain, he has to try them all. Only then will he achieve his perfect ending... no matter how many loops it takes.
The Perfect Run updates on Tuesday and Saturday. Cover by Vitaly S. Alexius.

Worth buying, it's a fun ride and asks fun questions with real stakes. Death or a Fate worse than death are a real possibility in this time loop story. It doesn't read like a loop story either.
Quick save starts as a character I didn't particularly care about, but it seemed decently fun anyway. As the story goes on he becomes more relatable.
I really enjoy this novel. The MC is OP (more or less immortal) but his power comes with sever limitations so this makes the story very interesting unlike many stories with OP MC. Also, the quirky character of the MC is fun and very understandable given his unique circumstances. One of my favorite MCs for sure.
From grammar, to world building. From side character development and meaningful relationships to MC growth and change. This story deserves its place in the top rankings in RR. There is no critical aspect in which this story does not exceed. So don't hesitate to read it, it's a good one, even by legitimate publication standards.
Basically, Ryan Romano aka Quicksave is a greatly written character and embodies chaotic good. The story is fun, action packed and has it's serious moments without feeling off. There are some really lovable characters in it and I got a bit teary at times (partly because I tear up rather easily). The story is greatly written and cohesive. This is a genuine 5/5 for me at least. I cannot bring up a single complaint. I mean if I went over it again and nitpicked probably sure but yeah. Give it a read, you won't regret it (most likely, don't blame me in the case that you dont).
I am only two chapters in so far, but it has already caught my eye. Stories with a quicksave mechanic are difficult to do correctly. Oftentimes they just devolve into nonsensical adventures with no actual plot, but so far this one has checked all the boxes.
-The main character recognizes the absurdity of his life and is as carefree as you would expect, pretty much treating everything like a videogame (referring to smaller tasks as "side quests" and such, although so far there are no actual game mechanics which I'm fine with). However, there are already the beginnings of a larger plot brewing, so my hope is that he does not get too caught up in his side adventures.
-The world seems to be kind of cyberpunk but with superpowers, which is pretty cool as far as I'm concerned. Cyberpunk isn't exactly original, but there can be some pretty great stories set in it. Also, the author doesn't seem like he's going to take a completely traditional approach in regards to the genre.
-And of course, the MC's style is just impeccable. Just look at the cover.
We'll see how it goes, but I'm optimisic. Void Herald has proven he can write stories with a good balance of humor and seriousness before. Those skills will definitely come in handy for a concept like this. If this story is anything like his others them it will be an enjoyable time.
What? This story is unbelievably good. Like, what the hell?
I'll be honest, I didn't really like the author's prior works. The dragon one got off the rails all the time and was quite focused on weird sexual stuff. Not my kinda fiction.
The necromancer one just seemed a bit boring to me. No fault of the author's, just not to my taste.
This, though? This is freaking gold. I love this story so much, even more so since I know the author will finish it as he has done with his other stories.
More than worthy of full marks, in my opinion.
I love the humor in this so much. Tbh, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the romance, but it's just a personal preference since love stories aren't my thing. Still a great book though, although I wanna see more of the strategies that Ryan takes in order to complete one more step in his plan.
I'm not the person that's good at writting reviews or just writting so i'll keep it short.
After reading summary of a story i didn't expect to keep me this hooked up as plot which revolves around MC reliving the same timeline over and over again seem kinda hard to keep fresh and interesting, but it has outdone all my expectations and i eagerly await every new chapter.
This thing's a joy to read from beginning to end. It's a wild, wonderful ride, and after every chapter I've always wanted MORE. More character, more story, more of the world. And Void delivers on all points chapter after chapter. There's a couple grammar errors, but when caught by the readers they're always fixed. (I read things as soon as they appear, so the changes aren't caught yet, haw-haw)
The characters are great, the world is well-made. Hell, even the things the characters can DO are well-thought out. It's given me ideas for SEVERAL oc's on its own. If you like post apocolyptic superhero time-loop stuff, hecking READ THIS. Hell, if you only like ONE of the 3 still read it. And if all that sounds...odd to mush together, don't worry. It's done VERY WELL. This has become my favorite story.
I haven't read the entire thing yet, but I'm getting there. The characters are interesting, the premise is very original. About my only complaint (and it's a very minor one) is that the author could use a few more commas in the narration (some of the sentences get away from you while reading them).
Looking forward to the rest of the story.
