PATERNUM

No title

By Nova Girl93, author of RU in? Saga

Oct 4, 2019: The different concepts of superheroes in this webserial are very interesting. I’m loving the MC. They are interesting and I love the relationship they have with their dad. A lot of information has been explained in the first few scenes, but it was done in such a way that it wasn’t boring, but intriguing. The sketches throughout are a nice added touch.

IN THE SHADOW OF HEAVEN

No title

By AVR, member

Jan 13, 2019: First up, unlike most on Royal Road, this serial is well written in the sense that the dialogue isn’t stilted, the characterisation’s good and you can tell some of the characters apart by their speech patterns without it being intrusive. The pacing varies a fair bit, it’s not perfect but it’s got the basic bones to be a good serial.

The characters with their flaws and strengths are interesting. It seems odd initially that the empire’s apparent ruler would pick three like these as his apprentices until you realise how small the ruling class is – about 0.000 07% of the population, many of whom will be the wrong age, have other allegiances etc. The strength of the serial is in its characters and their interactions more than the adventure parts.

The plot moves slowly, but it picks up speed in the chapters numbered in the 40s. As of writing it’s up to the 50s and publishing 3 times a week. The view from the top of an Evil Empire is worth the read IMO.

PILLARS OF FAITH

Editor’s First Look – Suspenseful Fantasy

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Apr 14, 2018: Pillars of Faith is a story that jumps around a bit to follow a couple of different storylines, but the author does a good job of keeping things interesting enough for a reader so that you will want to continue reading to find out what happens next.

The seeming main storyline follows Senna, a shapeshifter with a curse, and Lily, a regular person who finds and befriends her. I really liked watching the two of them interact, and enjoyed how the author introduces them bit by bit as a result.

There are other storylines which seem to be linked to Senna’s curse somehow, and it seems forces are converging on them. The author does a good job of outlining these threats and keeping a reader interested in continuing on.

I’d recommend this tale for anyone who likes fantasy or suspense tales that follow a number of interwoven storylines.
