In this novel, an engineer who finds himself an unknown world must step into a new identity and become braver than he ever imagined
Debuting author Joseph B. Konrad brings a new blood into the Isekai genre with the release of “An Engineer in a New World: Beautiful Horizon” (published by AuthorHouse UK).
This book tells the story of Jacob Taylor, an engineer from the future who suffers a fatal accident just when an otherworldly prince dies. Because of the failure of the universe, the two soul’s destiny entwines. From that point, Jacob finds himself living the life of a noble in the medieval era. He will need to face many trials as Matrios Hritan, a prince of a fallen empire, while otherworldly demons and arcane entities threaten the world.
“These kind of stories are really needed nowadays,” the author states. “20 out of 30 anime is an Isekai and this subculture grew gigantic in the last 10 years. However, this story will not go that way what way those goes. It somewhat stays on the surface of reality. In my book, the hero is not a warrior; he is an engineer who need people around him, and this gives the most part of the book. How the world react to his moves, like a chess game without proper tactics. A well organised chaos in a world what needs to be saved.”
When asked what he wants readers to take away from the story, Konrad responds, “Learn that a broken soul can be one again and fly if the environment is right for him.”
