The author, Edward Faust is aware that “This Book” does not really describe what this book is about. We shall pretend that it is a meta artistic choice but the reality is that Mr. Faust is bad at coming up with titles, and since starting This Book back in 2015 as a NaNoWriMo project he could never come up with a good one.

This Book’s genre is YA Supernatural, but that’s only as helpful as any genre tag (IE: not very) so I shall describe it further. This Book is primarily about reincarnation, but it also features mythical creatures such as angels (known here as Seraphs), demons, Byzantines, as well as homeschoolers. Two mythical homeschoolers in fact make up the main characters of this work, a pair of siblings named Grayson and Kish. They live in metro Atlanta in the year 2019 AD with their Aunt. On one particular day they are plunged into a rabbit hole of spiritual and metaphysical politics by the arrival of a mysterious one-eyed Green haired woman and strange humanoid creatures into their lives. That is where the story begins. Yes.

Rille, the heroine of our story, is magicless in a world full of magic users.

Living in near constant pain from swollen joints, Rille lives her life making soap and hopping from job to job because she's always being fired.

If I were to ask another person a question such as:

Do you believe in a god?

A simple question, but one that has been debated throughout the ages. How do you he or she would answer?

What if I added some context to the question?

Do you believe that a god could appear in front of you and change your life immediately?

Perhaps more difficult, but still one that can either be answered as yes or no or perhaps in a longer format.

What about this next question?

Would you put your trust in a god that appeared before you one day and asked you to go on an extremely important quest that only you could carry out at the risk of death?

Hell no.

Then tell me, oh great deity.

Why would I reincarnate into a different world and become your puppet to complete a quest that would only bring benefit to you at my own risk? Why would I put my trust in you when the cause of my death was at the works of your hands? Why would I be in awe of you when you have never done anything good for me throughout my entire life even when I cried out for you during my darkest hours?

Ah, are my words too enlightening for your omniscient mind?

I'm sorry, just smite me now and go find another mortal to do your bidding.

You may be able to make my body submit, you may be able to inject your will into my mind...

...but you will never ever be able to subdue the desires of my heart.

The Zürtzün Empire. Once a mighty nation, it was plunged into war, completely devastating it. The people of Zürtzün felt deep bitterness towards their former enemies and intense anger towards their King, who they felt had betrayed them, dragging them into a war they didn't want to be a part of. The drastically falling popularity of the King marked the beginning of a war fought within the Imperial capital of Zürtzün, a war of deception and political intrigue with many different parties vying for power in the face of the King's decline. But one party proved to be more ruthless than the rest.

The Adlerschrank emerged a powerful party and wiped off almost all their opponents right off the map. They seized control of the Imperial capital and the rest of Zürtzün, placing their leader, the Herrscher, at the top position of power. He was charismatic and passionate, and the people of the Empire came to adore him more than they ever did their King. With his dangerous fanaticism, he won them over.

He promised them wealth. He promised them power. He promised them vengeance.

He promised them a war, one where the Empire would reestablish itself and crush its enemies.

But deep in the heart of the nation, a poison is brewing. The Opera house, the enforcers of the Herrscher's rule and the exterminators of the Empire's "pests", has been neglected and left to rot, in the eyes of a seemingly insignificant, but hardworking desk writer. He plans to escape the clutches of the Opera house but inadvertently plunges himself headfirst into the house's affairs...
