The Last Science
A new world approaches…
Start from the beginning with no spoilers here.
“How did you do that?”
“Short answer? Magic is real.”
Nestled deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, something is spreading. Kept in absolute secrecy, it seeps into a fading town, quietly shared from person to person. For Alden Bensen, a directionless high school graduate, this discovery could mean an escape from his empty existence. To Rachel DuValle, perpetually underestimated and dismissed by the world, it represents a chance to become something much greater than herself. In the face of an unsuspecting world, their decisions shape the growth of a budding society discovering untold power. This potent force offers anyone the power to change humanity forever — or send it cascading into swift and total annihilation.
The Last Science is an ongoing science-fiction / fantasy web novel series created by Etzoli. The story will be broken out into specific books, further broken down into parts and individual chapters, as well as Interludes told from the perspective of other characters where appropriate to expand the world outside the perspective of the main characters. New chapters will be posted on Fridays for as long as it takes to tell the whole story.
As a brief content warning, this story may delve into violence and other content that may be unsuitable for younger audiences, as well as excessive profanity depending on the character. Sexual content is present, although not described in any sort of detail. Use your best judgment of course; many kids can handle adult content, and plenty of adults can’t.
Sound good? Cool. Start reading from chapter one here.
