Synopsis

This story could be about the Tellask Empire, ruler of a thousand suns and faced with imminent peril at the hands of the Orakh hordes. It could be about Paltai Amberell, the scion of a noble elven House, fallen upon hard times and seeking to find the key that will restore his family's name and save the Empire itself. It could be the story of his voidship, The Viceroy's Pride, powered by magic and crewed by a team of crack marines as they search for adventure and the solution to the Empire's myriad problems. Instead, this is the story of Daniel Thrush, human electrical engineer, befuddled researcher and survivor of the debacle that was first contact with a spacefaring civilization. Due to a combination of luck, magic, hard work, and more luck he is thrust into the center of events as Earth is shoved onto a much larger stage rife with semi-immortal elves and magical kingdoms that predate the Earthly invention of agriculture. Earth is outnumbered, and we have precisely one wizard. Dan. He's not very good at it, but he's going to have to learn in a hurry or watch everything he knows get torn apart by massive spacefaring empires straight from the pages of a fantasy novel. -------- This novel is also posted on Royal Road as a rough draft where it is much further ahead. I am posting chapters here as I edit them. If you need to read ahead, you can but be aware that there are characterization elements that I'm trying to fix up. Chapters will be posted here as I edit them. My goal is to go fairly rapidly until I catch up to the Royal Road version. -------- This novel is an homage to the isekai/litrpg/xianxia genres. I intentionally include nods towards a lot of those genres, but by and large I am trying to write my own story that doesn't fit entirely within any of their boundaries. Semi spoilers- There won't be a harem. There won't be explicit sex. The main character starts with a weak personality intentionally. A lot of the story is it getting better.
