The Archon, Book 1: The Last Physicist

By Dominic Stal


Being a mage isn’t all it’s cracked up to be; especially when you’ve witnessed the end of the world and the demise of all you’ve ever loved. As a particle physicist, William Jenkins is as unsuited for survival on an alien world as any normal thirty-something post-doc could be. Thankfully, he’s not alone. With an A.I., magic, scientific curiosity, and — most improbably — a deity on his side, Will must come to terms with his new reality before otherworldly terrors forever extinguish the light of hope on this new world.

Meanwhile, as the forces of darkness amass to invade her home, Effni Naridia, Qaseri Ranger and Guardian of her people, must face her own demons. By undertaking a trial, Effni could not only determine the fate of her city, but unravel a mystery aeons in the making.

The Last Physicist features elements of progression fantasy and GameLit, and is perfect for those who enjoy stories by Andrew Rowe, Will Wight, and Andy Weir. This novel contains questionable quantum mechanics, general relativity, and magic.

WARNING: This book also features profanity, vivid depictions of violence, pain, and gore, along with depictions of mental health issues (including PTSD, generalized anxiety, and depression) some readers may find distressing.
