And—he’s dead.

Ryan, a 5’11” young man died. Sadly, he couldn't be put at rest just yet. To his utter surprise, he’s reincarnated in a new world, but not as a baby. Ryan’s body is still in the same condition from before he was killed! What a lucky day!

This courageous young man finds himself in a new world full of kingdoms, adventurers, and mysterious magical creatures, but he doesn’t quake in fear. He faces it head on like a classic hero from stories! How will this adventure continue? Well, something important ends up happening within the first few minutes of his reincarnation in a new world. He dies to a petty goblin, unlike how one thought the events would flow.

His luck with surviving things unscathed is not so great, but with some help from an unknown power, he will prevail over all! In the near future, It’s very possible that this power will also allow him to control everything from behind the scenes.

Taking over kingdoms with thought out plans, fake identities and most important of all… overwhelming strength!

The Shadow That Preludes Death (The Favoured)

The Shadow That Preludes (...)

211 pages

Magic and fantastical beasts run wild on the countless worlds of the Fabric. Deities take an active interest in the Fabric. The Favoured, immortal mages of immense power vie for territory and power in the Fabric.

Umbra a naive ward of the Duke is almost Grown and that means she will need to take an apprenticeship. The issue is she isn't good at anything, but she catches the eye of a master of magic, he thinks she might be one of the fabled Protectors the ones that would save them from the coming destruction. But Umbra isn't the hero everyone wants her to be.

 

Updates will at least one chapter every two days.

Notable Location Poliagoras.

Poliagoras is the most important world in the Fabric partly due to it being the centre of everything both literally and metaphorically. Trade, commerce, travel, and politics are all conducted primarily on Poliagoras, it has the biggest city in the fabric stretching to cover almost the entire world. It also holds all the known Great portals in the Fabric which are the only way to travel to other worlds.  Even without these things, Poliagoras would still be the most important world in the Fabric as it is home to the largest population of Favoured. They were mages chosen by the Deities and given the potential to become more than mortal. 

 

I cannot overstate how appreciated constructive criticism is. This is the first story I have written of my own volition so even a small comment on how I could improve would be great. 

The current title is most definitely a working one. I know it isn't great.

The Elementalists

The Elementalists
by PZino
COMPLETED
414 pages

“The truth can be weathered, eroded; it’s every shade of grey that lives in the mist; it’s sunrise and sunset and everything in between. . .”

Kass is a goat-farmer who dreams of escaping his hopeless village. Sammi is an outcast, determined to save her sister, slowly dying of the toxin-sickness. And Rai is a privileged drone-racer who works hard, parties harder and feels . . . nothing

One cracks the earth. One weaves the wind. And one dances with the waves.

They have never met – but together, they are 'The Elementalists': weapons created by the resistance to overthrow the dictatorship of their toxic world.

Life-changing events rip the trio from their homes, from their lives, and the resistance sends them on a perilous quest: to destroy three mysterious ‘capsules’ that hold the dictatorship together.

But in the face of so many lies, twists and betrayals, Kass, Sammi and Rai – the most dangerous weapons on Tellus – must make tough choices. About who to save. . .

And who to destroy.

Canaan: My World To Live

Canaan: My World To Live
by Chryiss
HIATUS
424 pages

Essairyn had never felt truly alive on Earth. It felt like something was missing ever since she was born, but even after nearly 20 years of mundane living, she could never pinpoint what this or the emptiness in her heart was.

Suddenly, she awakens in a grandiose, primordial forest and encounters both demons and spirits in a parallel world called Sol'h'meyr. She befriends, in particular, a sassy fox-spirit named Akari who just reincarnated after three millennia.

Essairyn is an abnormal human with elemental powers, and Akari is being chased by those of her dark past. Together, they set out on an adventure in a world of magic, danger, mystery, and intrigue.

But this not a game. That simple adventure is actually the modest beginnings in a chain of disruptions that tear even the dimensional fabric of time and space. No one, not even Essairyn, was who she thought she was. And not even the gods can change the destiny of the universes...


A single promise shook eternity’s existence.


— Fantasy || Adventure || Romance || Action || Mystery || Drama || Science Fiction —

 

[ Please Note that the beginning of the story has been significantly rewritten up to Chapter Six - 4 || Resolution by 4/29/19. The total words count of the chapters went from 32K to 42K. The reasons for the changes are in the chapter after the one mentioned. ]

 

The My World To Live (MWTL) series, the alternative short name is Canaan, is comprised of three books symbolically named My World, To Live, and My World To Live.

Two years prior, the entire story had been planned and detailed out from start to finish before actual writing. Thus, the story will never be dropped. 

While the genre is largely Fantasy, the book is comprised of many other elements including a School Life (Magic Academy) story portion. MWTL has a lot of scattered symbolism and allusions, hence, the mystery aspect. The science fiction elements progressively become more pronounced, and the slow romance is a late bloomer. The female lead is strong and independent, and her backstory and identity unravel as drivers of the plot. Expect lots of action/fighting throughout and scattered philosophical and psychological themes arising. It's a human journey to find the essence of one's living and purpose. What kind of world do I wish to live for?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated. I hope to share the journey with you~!

 

Canaan's Original and New Covers: If you're curious about my art and the various covers I made for this series and other authors, I have a RR thread that makes free covers and shows art processes.
