Sexcapades of a Burly Monk

While 'sexcapdes of a burly monk' is neither a short nor flattering title it does get the point of the story across, at least somewhat. As aspiring readers will quickly figure out sexcapades isn't just smut erotica with wuxia themes, it's a well written wuxia with smut undertones.

It's somewhat redundant to say that the story parodies wuxia light novels, but for those who have not had the 'experience' of reading thousands upon thousands of pages worth of wuxia trash the settings and themes might not feel all that natural. Even in spite of them being relatively novel considering the genre. 

Subversion is what this book thrives off of so if I had to give my main gripe with it then that would be the lack of time side characters get to develop themselves. I feel that if the author isn't careful then this may become a mayor stumbling block in the future. A fast pace isn't a bad thing, but it does become one at the cost of the story's capability to develop its characters.


With that repeated criticism aside, I highly recommend the story.

And because royalroad needs to be difficult and forces a 200 character minimum on advanced reviews I'll also add that both the grammar, spelling and sentence structure were fine. I'm not an expert of any kind when it comes to the English language, but I didn't see any flaws. It's better than most stories written here, that's for sure.

The Laws of Cultivation: Qi = MC^2

3rd law is a book about a scientifically minded person being isekai'd into a wuxia world.

The setting is pretty common: trash of the sect is beaten to death, mc gets isekai'd, mc decides to be different from the rest of his peers by in this case getting good at alchemy. Alchemy/pill forging is only slightly different in this setting then the norm in that it is looked down upon by the general world.


So far the story follows all the wuxia checkpoints and I believe that if it continues to do so it will turn out average. Except for our 'somewhat' innovative worldbuilding (for clarification: the fact that alchemists are looked down upon) there isn't anything groundbreaking to be spoken of.

Grammar, spelling and sentence structure were fine, I wasn't distracted by anything while reading so it's good enough.

Realm of Monsters

Realm of monsters suffers from many problems, the biggest one being its use of tropes coming from the young adult and urban fantasy genres.

The tropes in question are usually related to sexuality, religion (or rather the lack thereoff), bigotry, etc. and have little place in a story which I had assumed was going to be fantasy in nature.

While the tropes in general are probably liked by fans of the genres they make for immersion breaking scenes for me personally. Sadly since the story hedges a lot of it's time on worldbuilding and character interaction one can hardly avoid it.

It is however with some contentment that I can say that the main character is spared ever so slightly from the deluge of cliché often associated with those genres.

This is not a saving grace, but does allow one to not immediately give up on the story. Grammar, spelling and sentence structure were fine.

Sexy Sect Babes

Reviews don’t need titles

Sexy sect babes is a story about a miner with future tech getting stranded in a xianxia world, with the author giving a refreshing and somewhat satirical take on the genre.

Personally speaking, I find it nothing short of glorious, however unsubstanstive that may sound.

To actually review the story though. The general feeling and plot progression is hard to describe, it is in no way similiar to xianxia/cultivation stories and instead focuses more on city building with the xianxia setting being a backdrop for the contextually ludicrous behaviour of the MC. To put it simply, the MC is playing factorio in creative mode all while being surrounded by country bumpkins, in a xianxia world. Again glorious.

My only gripe with the story, and I cannot fully express how insignificant it is, is the author's frequent-ish use of otherwise uncommen words. Zipf's law be damned though as in the grand scheme of things it's very easy to overlook and has improved in the latest chapters anyway.


Spelling and all that jazz were good and I didn't notice anything obviously wrong while reading all the chapters back to back. Can't recommend it enough 10/10.



Tales of the Implock - A LitRPG Monster Evolution Story

Implock is a story about an imp becoming a warlock in a world other than his own, at least that is the extent of it for now.

I don't have much bad to say about it, grammar, spelling, and sentence structure were all fine. The litrpg elements are not overbearing as is often the case for the genre, and the plot seems to be moving at a nice cruising pace.

The only reservations that I have with the story right now is that the author is making this story in the context of a wider world, this is in and of itself not unusual, but it's very easy to mess up. Once you start working with gods and the like for example story quality seems to always veer off, at least that's been my general experience.


For the rest, it's all okay, I like monster stories and this one seems to be doing it right so I hope that it continues on doing what it does.




Mother of Learning

Reviews don’t need titles

Its pacing is mind numbingly slow and the tendency of the author to repeat what he has already said is so catastrophic that I'm sure you could skip every other chapter and still fully understand the story. 

I myself skipped from chapter 45 to 85. Not because any particular chapter was bad, but rather because the author kept repeating events, over and over and over, I don't mean that in an ironic way either seeing that the story is about a boy repeating the same month. No, It starts off slowly as only a few events or mayor scenes have happened to call back to, but the longer that you read the more that these scenes pile up with the author eventually starting to poke you with a stick while saying "Remember this? Or this? No? No problem, I'll just explain three quarters of what happened so you understand what this is about."

Honestly there is no way for me to properly convey how mind crushingly boring certain parts of the story were. As I've said before I skipped forty chapters odd. Doing so probably made me skip over around 800 ish pages worth of content, two to three whole books, and I can safely say that even missing such a large chunk of the story wasn't enough to make the ending incomprehensible, in fact due to the author's repetitiveness I got caught up quite quickly to what happened without having to pass through the author's usual bog of words. Now this doesn't mean that I understand the story fully or that I know how all the characters were involved in what, however, considering that I skipped two books worth of information I think that me saying that I still understand the story enough to mostly understand it's ending should be a good enough example of the author's constant call backs and repetitions.

I still recommend the book though, even if it does have flaws. The world building is extensive, the characters are alright, grammar and spelling are good, and the story line, from what I know of it, isn't that bad either.

If the author ever considers releasing this book then I hope that he first bring it to someone whom can separate the wheat from the chaff before release.

Cover has been changed since writing this review so the below text isn't relevant anymore.

Also a change of cover art would probably help as well, but that really is just judging a book by its cover.

Borne of Desire

Reviews don’t need titles

So I really liked borne of caution  and have known for a while that this book existed, but have always felt a certain aversion for it due to my expectations of it as a sort of copy of the other story. My expectations were largely misplaced as after reading I can safely say that this book can stand by itself just fine. The fact that I enjoyed reading everything that has been released (ch7) in one sitting also helps in me recommending it.

Anyway the story is quite simple:

Man who works for secret government organisation gets transmigrated into the pokemon world after a comical, but feasibly questionable mistake made by an intern. After his transmigration he comes to learn that the world works on a certain set of tropes mainly stemming from the shounen genre. This is intertwined with him being adopted into a Lucario tribe and meeting some people.


The story and plot as described above are in my opinion great and I expect that it will all develop nicely over time. My biggest concern which I have seen bleed into the story more often in the latest chapters is the increasing similarity with how characters behave and interact with one another in this book as they do in borne of caution. Aside from the obvious which is the shared world I believe that the author should really try to keep these somewhat separate as otherwise they might become less distinct from one another over time.


Mind you this is an incredibly small problem that I realise I might be making sound bigger than it it actually is, but that, to me, is the only thing that could make this a less than perfect story.


Otherwise the quality is top notch.

The Birth of Fantasy

Feels like the side characters are NPCs from the elder scrolls and the mc is rushing through the main quest, basically they are about as talkative and emotive as the quest line needs them to be. 

The best character interaction I saw was when the mc couldn't speak the language and he had to communicate non-verbally, that was cut short very quickly though.


For the rest it's okay albeit nothing special.

Return of the Tower Conqueror

Let me get straight into it

What I like:

The theme (your mileage may vary, I'm a sucker for litrpg's)

The grammar and spelling (haven't seen any glaring mistakes so it's fine)



What I think needs work:


-The dialogue can be truly awful, cringey lines or things that no real human would ever say are littered throughout the story. Really breaks immersion.

-The use of speech marks, speech marks are not there to start and end a sentence, when I see a wall of nothing more than

"blah blah blah."

"blah blah blah?" 



then I just glance over the text and skip.



Yes, it's a fictional story with fictional characters in a fictional world, but that doesn't mean that everything goes. The way characters behave shouldn't be drastically different from real life. 

Let me sketch you an example:

There's just been a car accident involving babies

You know that you need to call 911, but you and the mayority of people around you freeze up due to the horror of the occurence

The person next to you immediately calls 911 and calmly explains what happens without a shake.


The next line out of your fucking mouth wouldn't be: "WOW, you're so cool, we all froze up, but you didn't, how did you do it?"

But that's the type of shit that I see more often than I'd like reading this.


That's about it, have a nice day.


Breaker of Skulls (LitRPG)

I couldn't get past the logical leaps the protagonist was making, inference is fine and good, but it doesn't work if all you've got is assumptions and your own guess work. Another gripe that I have is that in spite of the aforementioned because the author is already aware of all the events that make up the story, what the protagonist is thinking is likely going to be the right course of action regardless of any real logical deduction. The unrealistic behaviour of other characters also bothered me heavily.

As an example, spoiler warning:

In chapter three we come to learn that the protagonist and the people around him will have to face trials, for these trials they can take an easy route and a hard route, an old religious man, who I know was religious because he constantly talked about how he has sinned, went mad and entered the hard route.

Not long after he went in did he leave with one of his arms having been turned into a bloody stump. Upon seeing this a young lad who had chosen the healer class tried to save his life, but didn't have the proficiency and failed. The reaction of a woman in the surrounding crowd to the man failing was and I quote "you killed him". Which instigated her boyfriend to throw the young man into the hard route and kicking him unconscious, almost certainly killing him.


Now, how do you think the people reacted to this? Shock, fear, something else?

Well we don't know because apparently this quite frankly ridiculous series of events was not worth showing the people's reaction to, with thatbeing how the chapter ends. In the next chapter the people behave as if nothing happened at all.



There were some spelling mistakes here and there, but nothing mayor. Grammar and sentence structure were both fine.
