The Legend of Eugene

Young Adult Fantasy | #TheLegendOfEugene

Eugene Tanaka wants nothing more than to be an ordinary teenager. He used to be one, before he was involuntarily summoned to another world, forced to become their hero and battle monsters, and then dumped back into this world as if none of it had ever happened. He’s struggling with PTSD, reverse culture shock, and phantom pains from battle wounds his body no longer carries. Just when he’s finding his new normal, a girl from that world comes looking for him. His past actions had unintended consequences, leaving her people on the brink of extinction. Will he refuse to save the world he resents or will he follow her back to rescue them from his mistakes? If he goes, he may not make it home again.

Things we never talk about but are true:
- those who cook have a favorite burner
- cheese has a fandom
- part of adulthood is debating whether to keep a good cardboard box or not

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and refraining from eye rolling when your kid is throwing a tantrum.
