The Eagle's Flight
The king is dead; his heir is too young to assume the throne. Jarl Vale wants to become Lord Protector, spurred by his ambitious brother Konstans. Jarl Isarn likewise seeks this power; he is aided – or thwarted – by the return of his brother, the knight and war hero Athelstan, whose squire, Brand, hopes to restore his family’s fortunes, cost what it may. Through all of this, an enigmatic traveller makes plans with jarls, scribes, and priests for his own purpose. Abroad, powerful forces sense division in the realms of Adalmearc and make their own plans. It is only a matter of time before schemes clash, plots collide, and conflict erupts. War is on the horizon.

This is the best crafted and most sophisticated piece of writting on this site. Period. Just cause I say this is the best doesn't mean that other stories are bad or lacking something. It just means this is in it's own catagory. It is a novel on a site that has various degrees of quality serial writting.
This even stacks up well with some of the best fantasy novels of the past few years and deserves to be in the conversation with them. It's literally on that level. If you're a fantasy fan looking for a real book then read this and tell your friends about it.
I can't believe it. An actual high quality story. I did not expect this.
The story is very well written and the plots are very well build, richly thick with a fluid flow. The storytelling style is superb, I dare say it is the best in RRL, something you can expect from someone with a literature degree. He had his freaking ways with words, you will unconsciously immerse yourself and drawn into the story. Unlike reading an amateur work, instead it felt like reading a professional work, freaking excellent! And you missed this fic for a subpar crap fictions?! Then you're a total retard!
The story are about political struggles, intrics, wars, love, live and much more. It has a vibe like Game of Throne but more conservative. It also has surprising accuracy about medieval times, something I have never seen before in RRL or in other. Even lord of the ring had miniscule accuracy, the wars and the fights felt like a joke, just a pure fantasy. A proof that the author had give times for research and had advance knowledge about history. Something that I highly appreciated!
The Eagle's Flight have the most brilliant plots building compared to any in RRL, one of the best I've ever read. Its so rich, thick, and perfectly crafted. I've tried to nitpick it and I can't even find any fault. Its definitely the work of professional, not an amateur! You won't find any bullshit here, just a pure excellent literacy.
Perfect, nuff said. I'm not even a native English speaker, duh.
They are alive, each one of them are unique and very well built. The psychological touch is superb, another point that I highly appreciated. When you immerse yourself with them you can feels their emotions, their struggles, their life, its so damn amazing. They all felt so real. In term of character building, only The Wandering Inn may came close to it.
This is the highest quality story in RRL, none can compare. It has the best historical accuracy and superb psychological touch. This story makes most of the fics on the charts looks like thrash.
Happy 100th Chapter to The Eagle's Flight.
Not Much more to say, everyone that knows this story can say without the shadow of a doubt, that this is by far the best written story here.
Thanks for the chapter :>
Your novel so far just wow !! just wow !! I must say I feel like being a kid again, I use to play with sticks imagining a tactical medieval warfare. How did I do that ? I dont know anymore. It feels like your novel has that kind of feeling. You characters and are much more alive than people I see in the streets every single day.

Let me just start by saying this is the best story on this site it's not even close for me and believe me I have looked. I have been a royalroad reader for years and this story kept coming up but I avoided reading it because I wasn't that impressed by the summary but in this pandemic I started reading and just wow it is amazing. The story is great and the world of Adalmearc is expansive. I easily read 161chapters in a couple of days and haven't noticed a single grammatical error. Even the fact that you need to remember a lot of characters didn't bother me at all. I would recommend this story to everyone reading this review, especially if you like political intrigue, because the story is just that great. It is better so far than most books I have read in my life and that is high number cause I love reading.
This story is one of the most polished on the site. The writing and grammer is great and very polished. The story itself is vast and intriguing, spanning a large world that is masterfully built. Quill spends a lot of time setting up the world and introducing the characters. The characters are rich in growth and have amazing depth. Overall the story is well written with everything tying together to create a large plot that one will get invested into.
This story is amazing. I love how the author did his worldbuilding but also the characters. I can give a lot of praise to it but will say that the battles can lack a bit of feeling. Hope to see more soon!
One of the best novels I've ever read on this site period. I'm actually grateful Quill has written this and I hope he may have the good fortune of publishing it after all chapters are released. Brand is one of the best MCs I've ever seen and Jana is an amazing complementary FL. The rest of the characters are real and have depth and that's what keeps me drawn to this novel...the depth, the world building and finally the POLITICS. If you still have doubts trust me and just read the book ur doubts will immediately be dispelled. Godfrey is the definition of mystery and the grammar is frankly impeccable. The style is simple yet effective. It's not the most complex linguistically but it communicates a whole variety of ideas in its simplicity appealing to a wide range of audience and is otherwise unique from the rest of the anime-esque writing on this site. The book comes as a breath of fresh air and stands out from the rest of the novels on this site by setting a standard of writing comparable to GoT and other fantasy novels on goodreads while being completely free. Personally, everything in this book is worth five stars and as the title says it's so good it's criminal that it's free and is therefore definitely worth a read!
