He's destined to be the King of Terra Aurora, but only if he defeats the Red Endlai. It’s the only way the prophecy can come true. To succeed, he needs the help of his hunting students and, more importantly, he needs to believe in magic.
Goldie is a Professor of the Hunt. Prophesized to defeat the Red Endlai, he’s forced into action when one of his students is abducted. He can't, however, confront the troll-like monsters on his own and must enlist the help of his six undergrad students, each with immensely powerful, idiosyncratic auras.
After an unusually vicious attack by the monstrous, flesh-eating Red Endlai, Terra Aurora is put under lockdown. Unprecedented in its nature, the fact that they are using advanced technology to thwart the Terra Auroran's magical detection defenses could mean the end. It's time for action. It's time for Goldie to fulfil his destiny or risk the annihilation of his people. But, is defeating the Red Endlai enough or does the prophecy hold secrets beyond anyone's imagination?
Set in a world one hundred and twenty-five thousand years in the future, Our Lit is a magical sci-fi novel perfect for lovers of adventurous, speculative fiction. An epic mix of science fiction and fantasy, it's sure to become a favorite classic.
"Captivating, unique, inspiring -- highly recommended
Our Lit is a highly imaginative work of speculative fiction that has all the makings of a modern-day classic. Author LI Tchaikov crafts an epic tale that is as thought-provoking as it is timely and relevant to the current world.
125 millennia in the future, the socially and technologically advanced civilization of Terra Aurora has been put under quarantine in their 700-floor ""Sky Cliffs"" by monstrous jungle-dwelling beings. Hope for the Terra Aurorans rests with a prophecy to be fulfilled by a hunting professor known as The Golden Calderon, and his six teenage pupils.
There is so much to love about Our Lit. Aside from the mesmerizing imagery, plot twists, and world-building, author Tchaikov crafts characters you won't forget; but it is Tchaikov's visionary outlook and vivid imagination that make this book so engaging. Light is used artfully throughout the book as a central theme, in both subtle and overt ways, along with hunting, evolution, magic-technology, and sustainability to develop a meaningful, layered, and inspirational.
Our Lit is a highly original story, packed with adventure that accomplishes the rare feat of defying genres and delivering something positive and truly worthwhile to read. If you're not convinced, check out the homepage for a glimpse into the intricate and creative treat readers are in for."

I found the story line captivating! If you have some great stories like this one, you can publish it on Novel Star.
I like this author's imagination, which shows a good amount of creativity. I stayed mostly engaged, and enjoyed the twists when they came along, as well as the humor. This is not a quick read at 500 pages, but there's a lot to like here. Thanks very much for the review copy!!
This was an enjoyable outing. It was a unique concept, well delivered and well written. There were a lot of characters but they were introduced in such a way that it was easy to keep track of who was who, and I especially liked the way more and more of their personalities were revealed as the story unfolded. A bit like the story itself, which kept adding new dimensions to an already larger than life story. It looks as though there will be more stories set in this world and I look forward to reading them.
