The Last Tale of Galenhad is the title given to one of the texts found by an archeologist and historian, Jonathan Isac I. Upon his discovery he could tell that there were more texts and documents, but he was unable to find them, thus the title was born.

The Tale is a novelisation based of these mythologies he discovered. Jonathan Isac is not from Earth, and nor are any of the people writing this book, but the myths and legends were found on Earth and its surrounding planets.

‘The Last Tale of Galenhad’ is told from the perspective of historian and mythologist Jonathan Isac VI, who comes from a family famous for discovering old texts written by an alien race, and this alien race was us, humans. The Isac family had kept most of the texts private and only allowed a few to be released and translated. It was the decision of the text’s discoverer, Jonathan Isac Sr to hide these texts away.

The narrative is that of a novel, however, their spaced out within the novel lines from the original texts.
On the world where the author is from, not all the tale of Galenhad was known, and after years and years of waiting, the Isac family has decided to release the historical texts for the first time under the novelisation of ‘Last Tale of Galenhad’ with help from the author E. Singer. The texts contain within them forgotten myths of the Human race, that tell that tale of the Galen’s and how they created the universe, and how they almost tore it apart and the people who would stop them.

It is the duty of Mary Nightingale and her three friends, Isabel Atlin, Alexandra Valendra, and Keelan N’Tomu a Tarakian, to defend the earth and the entire universe against the growing threat from the now ruins of Galenhad. With one of the Galen’s guiding them through their journey, you will follow Mary as she not progresses from thirteen to twenty-two, but also as she tackles dangers and mysteries that have been hidden since the beginning of time.

The footnotes are an extension of the premise, that the book is written as a mythology that has been novelised. And as noted in the chapter dedicated to the Author Notes, the historian of the Novel
(Jonathan Isac VI) will be including some of the original texts and simple historical understandings or explanation for terms.

Some of the footnotes will refer the reader to other 'books' or; works' in the universe of this author. These can be found at the end of the end of the book as a form of bibliogrpahy. Due to an
error with the formatting and this website, the first paragraph has become disfigured.

This is where the linearity of the novel comes into play. The story will follow Mary through crucial moments year to year, month to month, or week to week. They will always be timestamped due to
the nature of the narrative os the story goes on.

The dates are also the approximation of the historian and novelist writing this, based on what they managed to acquire from the ruins of Earth.
