Sword of the Bright LadyOf violence and notorietyTo win enough power to open a path home this mild mannered mechanical engineer must survive duelists assassins and the never ending threat of monsters with only his makeshift technology to compete with swords and magicBut the gods and demons have other plans Christopher's fate will save the world or destroy it. I have grown weary with teenagers saving the world and magic being unlimited The main character in this novel is not a teenager the magic system Planck has built is neither free nor unlimited and the complexity of the world and story thrive because of both This book was a breath of fresh air
