Bookworm Jack Disor was more than excited to find a world as fantastic as his favorite fairytale, but he never expected to be the villain
While procrastinating at the start of the school year, Jack stumbles upon a ruin that opens to the world of Zajitar. Awestruck at first by its lakes in the sky and man-eating unicorns, he soon realizes he can’t find a way back to Earth.
Jack causes a commotion for arriving through the ruin, which at this point was only a decrepit tourist attraction in Zajitar. Tevarya, a magical old woman who can control dirt, sees something in the peculiar stranger and promises to help him return home. The catch: he has to join her small band of magical outcasts in a centuries-old war against the ruthless, militant Therador Empire.
Before Jack can argue that he has no powers outside of long division and diagraming sentences, he begins to magnetize random objects and burn down a forest while asleep. Tevarya is not at all surprised by this and the magical outcasts gain a bit of confidence, despite being greatly outnumbered by their technologically-advanced enemy. But when the Therador Empire learns that Jack is from the ‘mythical’ world of Earth, the war suddenly becomes all about him.
