Zu lul!

(Actually stating below after obtaining the prophecies from the future -> 19 chappy)

Again, super dragonly awesome story from the Void Herald... If you read his other stories then you now what I am talking about, and start reading. If not then:

- Pretty damn nice world setup

- Cool characters with nicely fleshed out persona (though definitely less quirky than in Vainquer and Perfect Run ... what I really love :D)

- NIcely interwined RPG system, which doesn't take the first plan (I am not sure though whether I like the imposed limitations... They seem to make power really sparse (though they appear rather often in the story).

- Very good pace

Just dragonly awesome! 🐉

The Void Herald Standard

It's a Void Herald Novel. That's pretty much a guarantee of quality if you've ever read Vanquier or Never Die Twice. With those two examples it's a pretty likely thing that you'll get to read a great LitRPG with great characters, pacing, system progression, and a bunch of really cool monster/animal companions.

 

I pretty much have no complaints for this. I really love the feel of a greek epic surrounding the novel. I greatly appreciate that it has a much faster pace compared to the greek myths and epics that inspired it, those tend to drag and get sidetracked. Though with only having read five chapters, it might still be a bit early to tell.

 

The only read gripe I have about this is that it's so good that after every chapter I always crave for more. That will make the wait between chapters all the more torturous to my sanity. If only I could time travel and binge a thousand chapters.

This site needs more Greek stories

This is my first review so do not take my review one hundred percent seriously but do not dismiss it as well

Really good start. The story is moving at a decent, but fast pace. Not as funny as the author's previous works but makes up for it by giving us quirky side characters. The main character is a little boring but relatable and ambitious. It looks like the story will have a little base building with adventure and personal strength as the focus. There are subtle pokes at tropes in stories.

 

Still too early to tell but looks to be a wonderful series. The only problem is the release time not fixed. But otherwise looks to be a good series.

Greek game lit fantasy, yes

I'm always up for some more greek based fantasy and based on these first couple chapters and the author previous fictions, this is going to get good. I like the main character and the worldbuilding is really good. Go read it! Or wait until there are more chapters to dig in, but keep an eye on this story.

I'm quite a hurry so forgive me for being so direct.

World-building 10/10

Characters feel like real people, like humans, something which is rarer than you think. 10/10

Grammar 9.5/10, while he does not miss type anything, some lines and their structure could be a little optimized, to not cause misunderstandings/interpretations.

Greek monsters and how to find them

Reviewed at: 7: Hero Rising

Love the novel and can't wait for each new chapter.

The story so far has a heavy focus on ancient greek monsters that are in my opinion the most interesting aspect of their legends.

It also has a feel of dnd campain where PCs have decided they are gonna make friends with anything.

Interesting premise! Very fast pacing, perhaps a bit fast but we will see, still one in the beginning. So far no real setbacks. Like it so far and interested to see how it will progress.

 

Void herald has some good stuff, let's hope this one will be as well!

good system, good mc, good scs, good shit all around. lacking the classic herlad humor but thats only because its what ive come to expect from him but if i think of the author of this as someone entirely different then it becomes much more palatable doesnt matter either way five stars nice story bro

Another awesome story from Void Herald. The greek myth aspect is intriguing and well done. I hope people will read this. The characters are well-developed, and to be honest, while void's comedy is great, its nice to see something new. The first chapter gives a good introduction. Please read. Please Read

Once more Void Herald provides us with a new and fantastic tale, combining LitRPG with ancient myths to create a gripping fusion of old and new.

Building on the legends of the old world the story follows a young man named Kairos, who is trying to carve his own name onto the pages of history.

While the story lacks some of the characteristic humor that we have become accustomed to, the story focuses more on magic, politics and kingdom-building than his other works, but is no less gripping.

I enjoyed it and look forward to more.
