Percival Gynt and the Conspiracy of Days
by Drew Melbourne
The year is 20018. The famed magician Illuminari is dead, and his greatest illusion has died with him. Dark forces now seek the Engine of Armageddon, the ancient, sentient doomsday weapon that Illuminari hid amongst the stars.
Enter Percival Gynt, accountant and part-time hero, whose quest to find the Engine before it falls into the wrong hands may be our universe’s last best hope for survival. It is a quest that will take him from the highest reaches of power to the lowest pits of despair and through every manner of horror and absurdity between.
But beware. This accountant has a secret. A secret that may damn us all.
“Melbourne’s zippy, often tongue-in-cheek debut reads like postmodern Douglas Adams: a mixture of self-aware humor, existential crisis, and cultural satire.” – PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
“A fun space romp that’s equal parts goofiness and grandeur.” – KIRKUS MEDIA
