Title: Never Die Twice Author: Void Herald Rating: M / T? Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, LitRPG Fandom: Original Universe Pairings: N/A Summary: Walter Tye is the best friend any adventurer needs. He is the smiling shopkeeper next to your local dungeon, the one who sells you these cheap healing potions. When you need information about a monster, Tye always knows. He wants to help; you can trust him. He is also the undead necromancer ruling said dungeon, getting paid to solve problems that he caused in the first place. But don't tell anyone that... Link: Royal Road Never Die Twice is one of those stories that gripped me from the start, and made it impossible to put down. I loved the premise, which turned the trope of the dungeon master on its head. As we read through the story, we see more of Tye's motivations as well, and it's more than the usual "be evil and be rich" that is expected of such villains. The story is well-written, and I enjoy the sense of humor the author conveys. (The author also wrote Vainqueur the Dragon, so the humor is similar in tone). The characters are more complex than they first appear, and the author weaves glimpses of Tye's past in with the present. Never Die Twice is a fairly recent RR addition. Since it was first published a little under two months ago, 14 chapters have been posted, with the last just 6 days ago. This is one of my favorites from Royal Road so far, and I'd rate it a solid 4 / 5, with the 4 only held back by the fact that I want to reserve judgement until I see more of where the story goes.
