Book Review: Empire Eternal: Reset
Author: Philipp Muenzer
“Empire Eternal: Reset” by Philipp Muenzer transported me to an immersive world of science, technology, space travel, weaponry, and magic. Its fast-paced and immersive on multiple layers from the start. We meet Korbin as a teen dealing with bullies in a world where schools include weapons and technology training. After an incident while trying to escape after being bullied for far too long, a wave of magic crashes over Korbin, and he is brought back to his sixteen- year-old self with knowledge and skills from the future. Can he use both to stop a war before it starts? Can he make sure the right people stay in control? Can he make sure the right secrets are kept until they’re meant to be shared with the world? Can he gain the allies he knows they need to survive?
Korbin, his friend Richard and mentor Lo’Karr gather their crew for a journey that could save millions from years of devastating war. While they journey through space to improve technology for fighting and increase the skill levels of mages to access more magic, secrets are revealed. We learn them first as the reader, and they unfold to the characters as their journey progresses. Hidden identities, family ties, and romance are just the tip of this space iceberg!
Korbin is willing to go to great lengths to try and prevent a war with the Vorrans, to learn from them instead and create an alliance. He relies on his friendships and the previously secret identity of someone close to him while forging an alliance with an alien species for the survival of them all. But how far is too far for his cohort? Their adventure begins by borrowing, our rather stealing, a posh spacecraft and training everyone on their way to their first stop. Will his friends be able to learn fast enough to help him save millions of people from an unnecessary war?
Join Korbin on his journey as he convinces people in power to listen and learn from him, as well as gain the trust of his friends…and the Empire’s Royal family? Experience the adventure and follow Korbin as he helps enlighten his people and improve their technology and fighting with both weapons and magic. Will they be successful in fulfilling Korbin’s mission? Read book 1 of Muenzer’s “Empire Eternal” series and learn their fate.
