Publisher's Summary

What can a game clan accomplish without a castle? The answer is obvious: nothing. Therefore, the main objective of any leader in a game world is to acquire a base of operations. Finding himself in exactly this position, High Shaman Mahan, leader of the Legends of Barliona, accepts an offer from the Emperor and the Dark Lord to vanquish the army of Phantoms that has inhabited Altameda, the phantom castle. However, this seemingly ordinary quest sets in motion such a momentous chain of events that the Shaman can do nothing but resort to his intuition and act on instinct. After all, a player who is being hunted by the three top clans of the continent at once can do little else....

    "Started strong then went down hill"
    What disappointed you about The Phantom Castle?

    The plot has degraded into being driven by the long chain of stupid decisions by the Main character


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    nothing by this author


    Any additional comments?

    The main character started making very stupid decisions in this book. It is a pet peeve of mine, and I can't forgive an author for it. I will not be buying any more of this authors books.

    "This book was a little disapoiting"

    This book was not as good as the other way of the shaman books except maybe the last. this one left of with a cliff hanger and was kind of filled with fillers. but also answered a few questions that might have been on the mind of the reader. but the point that annoyed me through out the book was the main character barely used or did not go into dept in the shamans powers the best you get on his class was more questions. the main character barely fought or did anything but tell people what to do or do test that was half interesting.

    "Mahan and his Ego"

    This entire book seemed more filler than anything else, along with Mahan's (lvl 103 ish ) huge ego. He has turned into a moron throughout the story. Very disappointed.

    "19 hours of filler"
    Any additional comments?

    Book is okay...but it's mostly 19 hours of filler, for presumably the 5th book. The previous books where much better, with a more satisfying story arc and ending. I keep waiting for an explanation on why the main character gets so many freebies/perks, but the hints we got in the first and bit in the second book were completely gone in this one. Also, the inconsistency of the main character is getting frustrating to listen to. In one book, he's a brilliant strategist that fights back the hordes in an epic battle. In this book, he has a difficult time understanding dungeon raiding tactics.

    "Not as good as the second book."

    I didn't find the book as engaging as he second, the last 3 hours I listen just to get through it rather than really enjoyed it.

    It lost the magic some now that the developers are setting Mahan up for success.

    "I wanted to like it again."

    It just got to be too busy for me. I just finished a few days ago and the events are already jumbled up. Although that could be due to my fading interest. 3 was hard for me to get through too. And it felt like the dialog was clunky. I think this was my last attempt at this series...probably

    "Fantastic, cannot wait for the fifth book."

    Great addition to the series. Nothings never as it seems in these books which makes them hard to put down. Perfomance was great as usual, really adds personality to the characters.

    "Swing and a miss..."

    I like the series so far, but this book was about 16 hours of filler and then it ends on a cliffhanger, but none of it was really all that interesting and the main character is a moron throughout the story.

    "This is a immensely captivating book series!"

    I bought the first book in the series on a whim. but after the first couple of chapters I was hooked. I have been burning my way through these books over the past 3 weeks and just can't them down. The theme reminds me a lot of Log Horizon. I am eagerly awaiting for book five to come to Audible.
