(Highest Ranking - #8 in Fantasy!!!!! ❤) -- Phil Heseroph wasn't exactly the best at being the boy-next-door. Grumpy, clumsy, and highly insecure with his life as a whole - he was the complete opposite of his girlfriend, a bubbly nerd named Ella. But like Yin and Yang, the two of them were inseparable... at least, until the day Ella died.

Blinded by grief, Phil took his own life.

However, instead of finding his much-expected peace in the afterlife, he somehow awakens in a parallel world called Atlas as a different and almost monstrous-looking version of himself.

Trapped in the kingdom of Aerika, a bizarre place chock full of things like magic, elves, orcs, demons, faeries, squirrel-riding women, assassins, a tyrannical hierarchy, and everything else under the sun, he finds himself very confused and depressed. But before he can begin to make sense of anything, he's captured and caged like an animal by a ruthless girl who looks and sounds exactly like his late girlfriend.

Is this his own, personal hell?

Or is it a second chance?

And if it is a second chance... does he even want to take it?

It's okay, kid. I'm almost thirty, and my head hurts just thinking about what you've just been through.

Well, my paternal grandfather was full-on Mexican, but it got bleached out by his wife and my mother. Does that count? ;)

I'm not even sure he has enough of a personality to be possessive.
Yup, yup. Russian definitely falls under the sexy AF accent category.
I was wondering about that actually. Thanks for your concern regarding your readers' brains lol.
