The Perfect Run

by Void Herald

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, Thursday, and Saturday. Cover by Vitaly S. Alexius

All hail Void Herald!

Reviewed at: 7: Rust Town

So far, I love it. Which is to be 100% expected as it is the great Void Herald who has brought us already incredible books so my expectations are that this will be in the trending if it isnt in the future. Now read because its Void Herald! Not much else needed :D

Somehow manages to combine Deadpool, cyberpunk, Fallout New Vegas, a little bit of bioshock, and the movie Palm Springs and makes it work really well. I recommend reading it if you like time loops or have an interest in any of the disparate blend of influences that makes up this story.

Its like you combine Mother of learning with Neuromancer, and then add a little Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy type of humor.       

So far the pacing is very quick and its all sunshine and potential. Hope the author can keep up the quality.        

And since the site insists i waste your time with more words this....

Quicksave is quick way to get addicted to reading!

Reviewed at: 24: Transition

This review is up to chapter 24.

I love the story overall. The way it unfolds, the way small flashbacks help build the past, how everything is brought together and how it fits so well ! It is a lot of fun to read and follow.

Style-wise, the author's work is brought with a narrator that is often assimilated with the character. It brings a lot of fun to see the thoughts of the character followed.

Character-wise, the MC is strongly likeable and very much immortal for now. That doesn't mean he has no weaknesses, which are often made known. The insane-happy-go-lucky feeling used to cover his overall apathy is very relatable and justly brought about by the author.

Grammar-wise, the work is a solid and good piece of writing. Few to no mistakes whatsoever per chapters. Pleasing to the eye and soothing to the soul.

 

Overall, I started this story 2 days ago and now I'm all caught up. It is a fun read that nonetheless brings existencial questions on the table under the veil of snarky comments and dumb puns alike. I'd like to say it can be put as a post-apocalyptical intellectubrawl dramedy but I would be overstepping...

Anyway just go and read the heck out of it ! It's worth your time, notice, and review ! I guarrantee it !

Very addictive story. Great writing! (11/10) It's a mash up of Worm, Mother of Learning and a little bit of One Punch Man if you ask me (which you are, since you are reading my review). Personally I would prefer a bit more MoL (i.e. more leveling up and a smarter MC) and a bit less OPM (i.e.

the MC not giving an F because he is kinda immortal

).

A time looping Main Character, in a post-apocalyptic Europe, dominated by Companies and Mafias, served by supers.

And it's just as great as you can expect. With a bonus seasoning of gaming and pop references served by the carefree MC. 

I mean how could it be any different : It's Void Herald.

Another masterpiece from Void Herald

Reviewed at: 15: Good Karma

Just like all other stories written by this wizard, The Perfect Run is definitely another masterpiece.

The save-point superpower Ryan has is not a unique idea, but the way Void tells the story around it, undeniably is. Usually, stories have the hero setting save-points multiple times during fights to overcome his enemies. In this story however, Ryan only has one and will not place a new one before he's sure he hasn't missed anything.

Many books have their character's following either the "good" or the "bad" side, but luckily for us, Ryan's ability allows us to experinece the story from many different perspectives. This heavily expands on the world and introduces many different and unique characters.

You would think having characters forget all the time whould be anoying and hinder their development. This isn't the case at all, this just allows us the readers to better understand Ryan who has to go through this every time he restarts a loop. The ability Ryan has isn't just all sunshine and rainbows, he is lonely and his ability renders social interaction worthless and thus causes him to become more lonely. Luckily, this superpower has given Ryan plenty of time to practice his jokes because THEY ARE FIRE!!!

As usual with Voids stories, the grammar is supperb, there are almost no mistake and the ones that do slip through and hurridly fixed.

A very good story so far, if you like super heroes or always replay games trying to get different endings you will like this one. Light hearted while still including a lot of gory details, the story does a good job of making you laugh and is definitely worth your time to read. If you are giving the story a chance at least read through the first 5 chapters before deciding whether to stop or binge the rest.

Just literally read this!!!

It's amazing and funny!

Well worth the rabbit hole madness that will capture your attention for the next couple of hour or minutes... depending on how far you let it take you!

The world and powers of this story are amazing and blend well with each other.

Please let the madness continue!

Thanks for the novel!!!!!
