    I'm writing a novel about legal assassins. It's a mystery, sci-fi, drama genre and the MC is something like Patrick Jane from The Mentalist if he would know how to fight.

    Well my obvious choices would be Mother of Learning and Zombie Knight Saga, but since presuming you have most likely already read them I really don’t have much else to recommend... Royal road definitely has some hidden gems, but I really can’t seem to actually be able to find them either. If anyone else can pitch in and give better recommendations I’d be glad to hear them as well.

    Tree of Aeons- my first webnovel that got me into webnovels, will always have a special place in my heart. It has world building, re: monster/tree, and so much more

    Theifs dungeon- clever as shit reborn dungeon who doesnt know who its past self was, though sus for a human, has a taste for beautiful things. It has a unique tension that makes it morbid and at the same time tragic. An art of a story that was ended midway through a plot, complete my ass.

    Abyssal Dungeon- another amazing dungeon story, this ones about a dungeon underwater. Instead of humans, the bad guys are fairies

    Snake Report- The reviews mislead me, the snake in all its glory was amazing to read, and the insanity.. god, nothing was more interesting to read insanity done right, in fact there were times where I suspected the author was making the reader go insane, in a good way

    Bloom- tree op af, has snake report vibes, it goes from wtf style to holy shit, holllly shit. well tldr, lil tree looking harmless becomes full on badass god eater world eater and most wanted in the multiverse.

    Menocht Loop- my substitution for the mandatory loop novels. its not exactly a loop.. its a loop but thats only volume 1. later on it dwells more into politics and action etc

    Calamity of a reborn witch- romance slow burn, magic, church, politics. understatement to say its good.


    Parasite king- system apocalypse, man forced to parasite a final boss. try at least the first 20, plot kinda stagnates after that

    Dungeon Mage- imagine Reverend Insanity, but instead of gu, its a dungeon shard system. incomplete series, author hasnt returned in a year so assume its dropped

    Dungeon carl crawl- out of all the "aliens telivising our apocalypse" systems and survival stories, this is the best of the genre/troupe

    Chrysalis- human re: monster, mc is an ant surviving in an enormous dungeon that spans the underground of a planet and his adventures and legacy that makes his species reach the pinnacle.

    Ben's damn adventure - funniest shit ever, cant stop smiling when you read, an apocalypse not taken serious, system with a personification. honestly have no idea about the direction of this story.

    Journey of Black and red- female lead who is a badass, never seen before, vampires done right, perfection, instead of classic europe, it takes place in post independence America and follows history of America accurately.

    Healer- not your traditional restart tower climber series. ...it might not even be it for you. Its kinda slow paced and focus on how mcs actions lead to a greater indirect consequence throughout the tower after he turns back time

    Never die twice- void herald- about a necromancer who will do everything it takes to achieve his goal for immortality

    stranger than fiction- interesting story about this dude who gets isekaed to a dungeon and is the last survivor of dead earth. is stuck with this uppity bitchy goddess and his journey to godhood

    Esoteric skeletal dungeon master- funniest shit ive ever read on royal road. my fav work. its basically a satire/parody of a normal isekai troupe

    Vaudevillain- honestly reviews on RR speak for themselves.

    Rise of the Lord- the ch before the drop were really well written. extensive world building, zero to hero protag. author dropped this story

    Melas- the rewrite - its about this reincarnated chick whos op ability is the best sorceress in the world, but like..... whats the point if all sorcerers are being hunted down? she faces moral dilemmas, goes on her own adventure, and over all isnt a piece of shit

    Burning stars falling skies- humanity extinct, but alien lizards have taken over their knowledge and decided to rise up to avenge them, if u ignore the plotholes its beautiful and deep

    Generic Apocalypse- the chapters are long and few. generic cant describe it. honestly its an interesting twist to the apocalypse system so far with mc being atypical and his powers being one of a kind

    Fair Princess- with only 20 ch this ranks as the shortest novel i read, and it was a 4 hour binge worthy series. dont let the description fool you, its nothing about slice of life , the whole story is not about getting a wish from the king but rather the aftermath of what happens when she discovers shes a pricness, and its a masterpiece

    Yashima chronicles- about a young neurodivergent chick who gets isekaied under unique circumstances, The deadpan way she views the world is super funny and the misunderstandings that pile up. The running joke here is that she thinks everyones op as shit when she is the true op one

    The weirkey chronicles- extremly unique. MC is this cynical jaded man who is back for round 2 for revenge and answers. cultivation system is based on soul homes, a unique concepts thats unhead of


    some stories u shoudlnt bother wasting ur time on


    bookworld online- garbage plot,i will find the author and burn his novel in front of him

    Mother of Learning
    Re: Trailer Trash
    Azarinth Healer
    He Who Fights With Monsters
    Defiance of the Fall
    Tree of Aeons
    Unbound
    Digital Marine

    Those are the ones I liked that I'm either currently reading or they're complete. There are a few others that I like but I either decided to wait to stack up chapters or the stories have been on hiatus for so long that I doubt they'll come back.

    Mother of Learning is the undisputed best novel on RR.

    If you want a non-human protagonist trying to disguise themselves as human, Super Minion is really good.

    Finally, I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet, Threadbare. The story of a teddy bear golem who only wants to protect the child he's in charge of.

    I would recommend anything by this author, https://www.royalroad.com/profile/6277/fictions
    Azarinth Healer, which was mentioned before
    A Journey of Red and Black is fairly good, though maybe not in the genre you are looking for
    There is no Epic Loot here, Only Puns. is a good, comedic dungeon story

    Novels with less than 100 chapters that are worth checking out, according to me.

    https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/33801/this-quest-is-bullshit - funny, good banter
    https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/31474/magic-smithing - slow start, but things are picking up
    https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/36049/the-primal-hunter - decent so far
    https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/31837/everybody-here-is-a-cultivation-idiot - seriously needs an editor, but decent for a parody

    https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/28601/arrogant-young-master-template-a-variation-4 - (appears abandoned) pretty humorous for a parody
    https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/31096/dungeon-pearl - (dropped by author) very quirky and cute

    Tree of Aeons is a tale about a tree in a "hard mode" fantasy swords and magic world with a mix of species (elf, human, dwarf, centaur, tree people, a few demons, etc) in it. Especially nice is that many people have different personalities, morals, and different ways of interacting. It's a solid read as it has nice long meaty chapters which don't have "filler". It is also on Scribblehub. TreeTree approves of ebooks; please don't cut down a tree just to print books.

    Mediterranean Hegemon of Ancient Greece is an isekai story about a modern age person from China rebirthed as a mercenary in ancient Greece. This is an alternate history type novel and is definitely not a fantasy as there isn't any magic, aliens, Heroes. or OP skills. The author tries not to upset the ancient historical record too much but still manages to have the protagonist live long and prosper. Well, maybe not live long as it's still an ongoing long story. Isn't it over the 2 million word count already?
