In a tragic accident, mechanical engineer Poul Nielsen and his best friend, civil engineer Jonathan Axelsen, are killed when a truck crashes into the coffee shop where they were hanging out. Suddenly, they find themselves transmigrated to a parallel world in the late 19th-century country of Avalonia. In this world, they'll need to work tirelessly to earn enough pennies to survive. But they won't settle for just getting by - they want to become the Edison, the Chrysler, the Rockefeller, the Carnegie, the Ford, and the Westinghouse of this new world.

In a world without electricity, Poul and Jonathan decide to start an electric power distribution company. But that's not enough - they also want to build appliances and motors to make their business profitable. They see the opportunity to revolutionize ground transportation, and they start an automotive manufacturing company. They tackle huge infrastructure projects such as metro stations, skyscrapers, bridges, tunnels, and dams by starting their own civil engineering firm. They even invest in the arms manufacturing industry.

But the road to success won't be easy. Fierce competition awaits them, as robber barons are willing to do everything to crush their competitors. Predator against predator, and government intervention. Poul and Jonathan must use all their engineering expertise and business acumen to navigate this treacherous landscape.

Join Poul and Jonathan on their journey to become the wealthiest men in the world in a parallel universe where anything is possible.

    So just starting here, but I'm not fond of having 2 main characters, also (with how much I've read) he's focusing on poul way more than Jonathan. I kinda wish that it wasn't poul that was good at everything, instead it would be Jonathan good at the logistics and everything to do with business while poul is the one wholly focused on engineering, having both of them as engineers creates a weird dynamic between the two that doesn't really fit, also having them both as engineers sets up for a plot later where they become enemies and they have to companies that are against each other.

    This has alot of potential just like that one novel where the mc sold guns in a cultivation world..but that was spoilt by the millions of different f*ck*ng POVs by useless characters. hopefully this is good👍

    Nice story , character and kingdom building . If your are engineering then you will relate with most of the concept mentioned . In story their wasn't any down moment just some R18 chaps but skipeable . Like other novel this has lot less info dumps because its essential to understand . This novel went from rank 1250 to 250 in just 4 to 5 days , speaks alot about it . Overall (9.5/10)

    ch 90 here This story has an interesting and promising start, but unfortunately the conflict is not strong enough and makes the story flat and boring.
