The life of a Soviet bio-weapons designer Vladislav Kerenski ends with a bang. He is reborn in a small mountain village called Skyisle and discovers that the System underpins the development of all life in a fantasy-world Novazem where magic rules supreme. Using the scientific method and his knowledge of history, administration and biochemistry he attempts to understand and utilize everything around him including the System itself.

A rational, progression litrpg with giant monsters, wholesome moments, trope subversion, lots of art and vast multitudes of historical references. 

A light novel about a scientist too clever for his own good and the specter of a girl who was destined to die, bringing light of hope to a subjugated nation ruled by oaths and beset by revenant abominations.

Harux Y'saanith is not your average elf. He is wild, untamed, and likes a good old cut of meat over a plate of vegetables. But what he does have in common is his love of fighting and magic. So when he gets the perfect opportunity to join an academy full of strong fighters, he couldn't resist.

Journeying with an eccentric tech billionaire, a boy who's way too theatrical for his own good, a proud knightess and many others, Harux wonders if he'd finally found strong opponents, or even people he can call his friends.


Bonespore is a shonen-inspired story set in an academy where students train and fight. There is also a blend of magic and SciFi as it is set in a post-modern world of sorts. If you like something that is a blend of both magical slice of life, and tense moments with battle, horror and other events, then it'll be to your liking.

RE: SYSTEM // SUMMONER [Litrpg Apocalypse Second Chance/Redo/Back In Time, Monster Tamer, Dungeons, Demons, Magic]

RE: SYSTEM // SUMMONER (...)

The first time, Earth fell.

Not again.


Levi Morrison is not a hero. He's one more warrior on the front lines of Earth's long defeat, any hope beyond simple survival in the endless fight a distant memory.

But as the demon hordes finally conquer Earth's last stronghold, and his moment of death arrives...

Levi finds himself back on Earth. A peaceful Earth, where the dungeons and the system have only begun to appear, where the opening of the demon portals is months away. An Earth of eleven years ago, one he no longer understands.

He knows one thing: Fight. Level. Survive.

And he knows another thing: the demons are coming.

Even if he's the last person anyone would have chosen for such a task, if the fate of the planet is to be changed, it's up to him.

And that's not something he can do as a simple warrior. Instead, he must overcome the scars of the dark and desperate future that feels so recent to him and become something else entirely: a Tamer, a Summoner... and perhaps even a leader.

-Delving dungeons! Fighting in dungeons! Looting dungeons!

Naomi Turner works for a massive VR company, Snowstorm Inc., that created and engineered the best-selling MMORPG game, "World of Disasters." Herald for its hyperrealism, the game's notoriety spread far and wide and is now the number one sold and most played game worldwide. 

One day, the company sent a firm-wide email ordering everyone to work overtime. All employees must log in to "WoD" and celebrate with the CEO launching the game's first big update in over five years. In the name of solidarity, and a handsome bonus cheque, everyone naturally complied. 

Like something out of a B-rated film, the mastermind of this ploy reveals that everyone is trapped in this game! They must band together to beat this game and escape! The deadline? Until every player dies. 

Companies that have mandatory overtime suck!

An editor at the prime of her life—and with maybe just a little too much free time—finds herself waking up in one of her favorite RPGs with no clue as to what's going on or how to get back home.

This might be the part where others rejoice over getting whisked away to a world of wizards and magic, but she certainly doesn't think it's anything to celebrate about.

After all, she woke up in the body of a small-time villain with some severe personality issues.

She had welcomed Death with open arms, and was more than happy to spend her afterlife floating in the void. Until a Goddess decides she has better plans for her and offers her a choice any fantasy loving geek would die for. However after accepting the offer she learned the hard way that one should always read the fine print, especially when dealing with a God. 

Now her new life has begun, only she's been dropped into the world of her favorite game. Except, instead of becoming a side character or even one of the heroes of the game she's inhabiting the body of the game's final boss, 8 years before she became the villainess. Now she has to navigate a hostile home where her own father sees her as nothing more than a pawn on a chessboard, and her stepmother wants her dead to free up succession for her son. She has to try to navigate the confusing relationship between herself and her stepbrother, who could be her greatest ally or her most dangerous foe. The original Liliana Rosengarde fell from grace and burned the queendom on her quest for revenge. Can she prevent that fate from happening and save the queendom, and her own life? 

And maybe, she's not the only one who needs to be saved. 

She'll need to gather allies, both human and beast, if she has any hope of subverting the destiny that was already written for her.

Slow Burn, if you don't like slow stories that build to action very slowly this isn't the novel for you. If you like slow development, copious introspection and a story focused on a single character you will probably enjoy this!

Crunchy LitRPG, numbers, math, boxes galore adorn these pages.

The Last Orellen

The Last Orellen

According to prophecy, the ninth-born child of Lord Orellen will have the sort of power that changes the world. But in a land ruled by magical families, no one welcomes the possibility of a dangerous new player. Fearful even of their allies, the Orellens come up with an extraordinary and deadly scheme to protect themselves.

If the most powerful people in the world wish to kill the ninth-born, they will have to find him or her first. And that's not going to be easy when the Orellens have called upon dark magic to create hundreds of heirs. The boys and girls are given new bodies, new names, and even new magical talents before they are scattered across the continent. Only one among them is the real ninth, but all of them will have to grow up in a world where they are fugitives.

Kalen, once fated to die, is now an Orellen heir in hiding. And he is determined to survive, even if he has to master his strange new powers to do it.


The Last Orellen is a long, character-focused epic fantasy with progression. It's set in a vast universe, and it's about a boy's journey to become a powerful magical practitioner. Reviews are deeply appreciated. Please do not repost my work elsewhere without my written permission.


What type of reader is this book for? You might enjoy The Last Orellen if you like...

Clever and resourceful protagonists.

Big fantasy worlds. Multiple cultures, lots of characters, many different types of magic--this story is expansive rather than closely focused on a narrow storyline. 

Old-school epic fantasy.

Progression fantasy that takes its time. Our main character will be progressing through magical ranks, but this is going to be a lengthy story. If you're more about the journey than the destination, this might be the book for you.


RELEASE SCHEDULE: When the chapters are done, and I'm sure they're the right direction for the story to go, I release them. Sometimes, that means there are several out in a week. Sometimes, readers have to wait seven or eight days for one. At the time of this post, I've released 25 chapters and 90,000 words in ten weeks.

In the last half of December and in early January, I will be trying to build up a backlog, so we can have a more traditional release schedule next year. But ultimately, I will always prioritize story quality over on-schedule releases.

UPDATE: Currently scrambling to get real-life things done before the holidays. Next update is delayed. Hoping to have time to finish the chapter this weekend. Feel free to message if you want to check in. I never mind.

Living life in a virtual world was never part of my plan. My dreams of the future were of university, of being a world renown researcher and pharmacist. Being one of the many unfortunates forced into a virtual reality capsule to live out my days as a popsicle, was not part of that dream. But not all dreams can be achieved, and sometimes, it’s the dreams we never knew we had that come true. I dreamed of walking a path of science, and now in a world known only to the mind, I walk a path trodden by the greatest scientists of all. 

In these frozen dreams, I walk the path of a disciple of natural philosophy. 

The First Tail - Slowly uploading edited chapters.

The Second Tail - Only self edited, third party edits will be done once completed.

Chapters will now be MONDAY and FRIDAY AT 3:00pm EST.

This is a mix between LitRPG and Xianxia. It's like a car that looks like a LitRPG with dungeons and skills, but the interior and engine are all Xianxia. 

So no blue boxes and clicking +’s to get stronger.

***

What you won't see in this novel:

Bland protagonists.

Bland love interests that immediately fall in love with the MC.

Murder hobos who kill entire families and clans for looking the wrong way at somebody.

Pacifist MC’s who wouldn't kill a single person to save millions.

Cartoonish villains who are bad just to be bad.

***

What to expect:

A MC who acts rationally.

World building that has more depth than ‘strong people 'stronk'. There will be no rules only benefiting the strong and no rule changes as they see fit. 

An empire that actually cares for its citizens.

People who act and talk like real people.

A magic system and progression system that are logically and internally consistent.

Realistic fight scenes.
