In the year 2018 a bright star appeared near Earth. Humanity as a whole was briefly introduced to a race of beings far beyond their understanding. During that brief interaction a proclamation was made, Defeat the Grand Emissary or become the eternal slaves of those who had arrived at Earth.
The only chance for victory was for people all across the globe to make a choice. When prompted to become a champion and a play a bizarre game of life or death they could choose yes or no. Those who chose no, went about their lives afterward. All memory of the event was lost despite the fact that their very existence as a free species hung by a single thread.
Will those who said yes manage to survive the horror of the game and become strong enough to defeat the Grand Emissary. Can one of them become... The Galactic Fist of Legend.
Also, it's a comedy with significant parody elements. Pretty obvious, right?
My Opinion: 240 pages, costs $2.99, not available on Kindle Unlimited. Originally written on the Royal Road, this LitRPG story is from the same wonderful author that wrote Origin ARS, and the oh so sexy Freelance Saga.
Our world is set to be enslaved by unless humans volunteer to to participate in a game like scenarios and eventually get powerful enough to beat The Grand Emissary.
That stuff is just the background. Much of the story takes place in a zombie apocalypse world/alternate universe where the main character, Scott, has to survive and gain enough XP to grow strong and complete his assigned quests. The character also travels through other game universes that parody familiar worlds like Mario Bro., Metroid, and others.
This is an action filled story that’s also funny sometimes. Available on Amazon and Smashswords
