Musical Land (book 1)

Musical Land (book 1)
by Ellen Taylor
ONGOING
248 pages

In an alternate universe where famous historical figures are all living in one era and musicals are their every day life, fourteen-year-old Marie Curie has been told that following her passion in science will lead to a future of flipping burgers and waiting tables. As hard as she tries, the arts remain an enigma to her. She is selected to attend Presley High, one of the most prestigious schools in the city, as part of a social experiment to help her grades. With budding geniuses all around her, she feels doomed to be forever an outcast. However, when she stumbles upon a secret which shakes the foundation of Musical Land, she realizes targets from bullies aren't as terrifying as targets from the president of the city. 

**This is a historical (fan)fiction, so technically I don't own these characters/real life humans. And I also take creative liberties with them, so they're not exactly who they are in real life, but that's what makes it fun!**

Cairn is a prince who is already tired of ruling. Faced with an imminent coronation and an overbearing father, he wants nothing more than to drown his responsibilities in cheap liquor and poor decisions. With the help of his sister, he hatches a plan to escape the clutches of the throne once and for all. It all goes terribly wrong, and Cairn finds his priorities shifting in the face of unimaginable tragedy. The change of heart comes too late, however, and Cairn dies. He reawakens to find himself transported ten years in the past. He immediately begins to plan for the future, only to discover his killer has somehow followed him. To succeed, Cairn must unite the kingdom and discover the motivation of his killer, using as many tries as it takes.

I exhausted pretty much every time loop story ever written and decided to write my own. You'll see a few similarities here between this story and some existing stories, at least initially. There's a lot of inspiration drawn from both MoL and Re:Zero, though in terms of pathos and darkness, this story leans more towards the latter. Be warned, it is something of a slow burn. The main character will grow and become powerful, but a theme of this story is that power comes slowly and often at great cost.

Rise of the Firstborn Mage

Rise of the Firstborn (...)
by Briizy
ONGOING
100 pages

It began with ice. 

A relentless, bone-chilling tickle of frost that stretched across the lands of Axulran, crawling over the mountain crests and freezing the grassy meadows. Frozen in time, the kingdom fought for political control all across the region of Ellixus, paying no mind to the death and torment they may cause along the way. 

Cateline Bennett, a princess consumed with ice, found herself lost in a foreign kingdom with nothing but her wits to survive. As she explores this unknown land, she unravels her past and discovers that the magic she had concealed for so long could unleash chaos so intense, it could destroy the world as she knew it. 

With her untapped magic and new friends, Cateline must vanquish the enemies that threatened the world of Denzethea as they knew it, else they, and all they knew, would crumble to ruin.

Hired on by the ridiculously influential Lauds Inc., Bec Namiko is soon to be one step closer to her dream of exploring the great cities of Earth—or at least what is left of them. Everything seems to be falling into place for her... except for one small issue. Her contract didn't specify where she'd be exploring.

Stuck on an alien planet called Dust armed with nothing but an ominous tablet, an AI with a death wish, and an odd power with no tutorial, Bec seeks answers for all of her questions both big and small such as: Why am I here? What does this thing called a Word do? And how the %@$# is this tablet telling me about my death?

(Updates on Monday and Friday until my backlog runs out and bonus chapters when I feel like it.)

Reborn in Another World as a (Colorless) Demon Prince

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

He made his break through and proved the naysayers wrong. But just as everything in life was falling into place, he died. A strange being meets him in the in-between, and he is given a second chance at life. The world he's reborn into in full of wonderous monsters and adventures to be had.

However, he's not human anymore, but a demon. And not just any demon, but a Colorless prince. Even worse, demons and humans don't exactly...get along. War looms between the two nations, and threatens to capsize his life into chaos and blood.

If he wants to make anything of himself, he will need to work very, very hard. 

It's a shame he's not sure what to do or where he wants to go.

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.

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
323 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.
