“How did you do that?” “Short answer? Magic is real.” — Nestled deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, something is emerging. Kept in absolute secrecy, it seeps into a fading town, quietly shared from person to person. For Alden Bensen, a directionless high school graduate, this discovery could mean an escape from his empty existence. To Rachel DuValle, perpetually underestimated and dismissed by the world, magic represents a chance to become something much greater than herself.
In the face of an unsuspecting world, their decisions shape the growth of a budding society discovering untold power. This potent force offers anyone the power to change humanity forever—or send it cascading into swift and total annihilation.
The Last Science is an ongoing science-fiction / contemporary fantasy web novel series created by Etzoli. New chapters will be posted on Fridays—plus bonus chapters on Mondays—for as long as it takes to tell the whole story. Each chapter is pretty long (average ~8000 words), so find somewhere comfy to read. This is a series for readers who really like to dive into the content.
This story will also be published weekly at my website (https://etzo.li). There will be no differences in content, but slight differences in formatting. Feel free to read at whichever site or app you prefer. If you’re enjoying the story, consider dropping me a vote over on Top Web Fiction, or come say hi on Discord. Thanks!
Schedule: New chapters every Friday, with occasional bonus chapters on Monday.
