After a year of silent manifestations, the angels that have appeared worldwide turn against
mankind. Peri Delaney, a young woman with anger management issues, survives an attack that kills her only friend.

She and a handful of others have somehow been altered by the attacks, developing abilities that can only be called supernatural. The government begins to collect these ‘Changed’ into a group called Project Aegis, hoping they can be used against the "angels" and save mankind before it is too late.

My intention is to publish the first 5 chapters one a day till Monday, then I will switch to a twice weekly release schedule.

Reborn in Another World as a (Colorless) Demon Prince

Reborn in Another World (...)
by Eyeball1844
ONGOING
327 pages

After years of trying with everyone saying he couldn't do it, he finally proved them wrong. But one night, while out for a snack, he loses his life. After a meeting with a god-like(?) being, he's reborn into a world of magic where monsters roam and adventures are sure to be had!

But he's a demon? And a prince? What the hell is a Colorless?

Now known as Kieran, he's babied and sheltered from the outside world by his kind blue-haired caretaker and the not so kind red-haired one. But even as he enjoys his new life, a long war between his people and the humans loom over the kingdom, one that threatens to engulf everything he cares about.

Only through hardship will he make something of himself.

Please note: The story is a slow burn and only starts to pick up after chapter 8. Also, if you like Re:Zero, give this one a shot. It is also a weak to strong story.

Amongst The Sky

Amongst The Sky
by ArthurScott
HIATUS
73 pages

First came the stars. Then came the dreams.

Dreams that warn of the coming of celestial beings.

The year is 2108 and humanity faces one of its greatest challenges yet.

A technological war between the sky and the Earth manifests after aliens and cosmic beings seek revenge for a fallen brother, stolen and experimented on by the U.S. government.

Celestial entities from across the galaxy invade Earth, and humanity has to fight for survival and protect those they hold dear, while three teenagers – and three best friends – rise to alleviate the battle before it spins further out of control.

Phoenix Newman, Alex Ramiro, and Andy Caulfield are three victims of a fallen economy, polluted to no end. Together, they derive plans to take down the enemies and save the good. The issue is . . . they don't know which is which.

Amongst The Sky is a book about the value of friendship, the fault in our stars, and the fears of mankind. It is a story about bravery and heroism, love and determination – how easily mankind falls under the heels of pressure.

The Merchant Prince Book 1: Returning Home

The Merchant Prince Book (...)
by TaxReligion
ONGOING
248 pages

Enter a world of deceit and assassins.  Augustus DeCastellian is a member of a wealthy merchant family, with ports all over the known world.  He is sent on a voyage to new lands to open trade routes, but when he returns he will need to fight, using his tools of manipulation and cunning, for what he is owed.

Author's note:  This story is somewhat slow-paced, especially in comparison to the norm on Royal Road.  The first three chapters act almost as a prologue, to give you a feel for what the rest of the story will be like.  So, I suggest new readers try to get to the end of chapter 3 before deciding if this story is for them.
A few of my reviews have said that this story is abnormal for Royal Road.  I agree with that sentiment, at least based on what I've read on the site.  It was just an idea that was in my head, that I began trying to write once my hobbies were cancelled due to the virus.  I found Royal Road after I started writing it.  Honestly, it's probably not even tailored for the web-novel format.  But it's the story I wanted to tell.

False Prophecy

False Prophecy
by Amanuensis
ONGOING
614 pages

Everyone knows the Prophecy of the Fated King. Everyone knows of his Six Signs and Seven Trials. Everyone knows he is the one destined to lead an army of soldiers and fae into battle against the spectral invaders known as wraiths.

But what if the Fated King failed, and his Prophecy never comes true? What if he was killed surrounded by loved ones and devoted allies? What if he died four years before the inevitable war for our world’s soul?

Humanity could not possibly survive without him.

Could we?

Nise, 217-563 P.R.


False Prophecy is an epic fantasy saga about a world that loses its chosen one four years before the apocalypse he was destined to prevent. The first book takes place during the five weeks prior to this tragic event, following a husband and father named Kon. When discovered to be a Seer - a human blessed with the power to see and bond with the magical fae - Kon is taken away from his family and conscripted into the Fated King's army to play his part in the coming war.


Inspired by Brandon Sanderson's The Stormlight Archive, Wildbow's Parahumans, and countless anime.

Disclaimer: FP's Prelude Novel, A Sung Prophecy, is slow burn and character focused. Expect lots of worldbuilding and an extensively large cast.

The Stars Belong to Humanity

Locke Morholt, an android with no memory, is given a second chance at life in the form of a military career and a campaign against his own kind.

Nicole McManus, one of the Union's elite, must come to grips with her own mortality after a near-death experience propels her into a web of conspiracies against humankind. 

Faustus Agrippa, an android scout, teams up with a newfound friend to seek out vengeance against a threat he narrowly escaped once before.


The Lost Legionary is a long-running space opera inspired by anime, metal music and my love of grimdark science fiction. Chapters will be updated every Tuesday and Friday at 2:00 PM EST. At the end of each book's part, there will be a mini-chapter from a character who hasn't had a perspective yet. One bonus chapter a month will come out on Saturdays at 2, so long as I've either hit a Patreon goal or I'm on trending. 

Thank you for reading, I hope you all enjoy this. Any constructive criticism or feedback is greatly appreciated.

Summon Imp!

Summon Imp!
by Oskatat
ONGOING
437 pages

Travel with a newly born demon as he grows and learns in his own world as well as in other worlds as he gets summoned again and again. Usually to die or kill for others in strange and exciting places, but it's never certain what the next one will bring. It has its perks. With each new world comes a new story with new experiences and new lessons. There is always more to see, more to learn and more to know. Maybe, someday, it will all make sense. For now he will just work hard to become stronger, to be useful and, hopefully, survive that way.

A coming-of-age story, but different.


Things start to slow down to a crawl. Colors blur into one another until my vision is completely white. All I can think is "Shit, not this again!"

I hate being summoned.

updates Wednesdays and Saturdays

The idea for this story began in two places. One was the ridiculously rapid pace of gaining power in many novels. Both in games and in novels, I enjoy the struggle of the beginning character, why always the rush? The other was the way many monster or non-human MCs always seem to hurry to become human (again). It always felt like a cheap way to grant the character extra powers without the difficulty of writing a non-standard thought process.

Thus I wanted to write the slow(ish) progression of a monster character gaining strength and intelligence, while remaining distinctly non-human. There are no stats, xp or systems, no reincarnated soul or completely formed being to start with - unless I want to make fun of those. While the MC 'evolves', the process takes months if not years to proceed step by little step. Sit down with me and imagine, what would it be like if...

Samuel Grady is alone. Isolation seems necessary to finish his novel, and his cousin hooks him up with a lonely cliff-top cabin with no electricity. It's perfect, until his obsessions with his secretive landlord, his landlord's cycloptic manservant, and the blood which streams down the cabin's windows entirely unseat his cozy reality.
