Summary

New world. Old problems. Even gods must die.

Artorian has been given the lovely opportunity to run a realm and sort out all of its inherent issues. Not only does he get to chase around people with world-shattering abilities and force them into hibernation, he gets to break up his days by living through the worst portions of his life all over again. Nothing like trauma to fuel personal growth!

Nasty creatures Artorian thought were gone forever have begun appearing in the dark corners of the world, smiling at him with too many teeth. Between constant battles, Cal’s newfound love for math and pylons, the early stages of a world-spanning game system, and grumpy supervisors who refuse their bedtime…the sunny administrator has his now-tiny hands full. Exactly how he likes it.

moves on the story but nothing world shattering

more of the mad old schema we all love.
but just that nothing really happens in this book. yes we are getting closer to the end but it just feels like the book is being stretched out for no reason.

there is character development and the interactions with the characters are fun , its an enjoyable book I love the series but I just feel that this book could have broth us close to ware wevare going then it did.

Almost entirely slice of life...


Nearly the entirety of this book is slice of life. There's absolutely nothing wrong with "slice of life" books. I just prefer when there's a more cohesive challenge or conflict that a book orients itself around. This is mostly "administrators administrating".

I'd probably enjoy this more, but the depth of the cultivation system in this world is just so mind-boggling massive that I just can't wrap my head around it. The book does show signs of the game world nearing completion and cementing it's connection with "The Completionist Chronicles".

Baldree's narration is fantastic as ever.

Dennis Vanderkerken is a true master of the pillow

Artorian's Archives is undoubtedly my most loved series. Dennis is doing an awesome job giving us the information on what has happened between the Divine Dungeon series and the Completionist Chronicles and his world-building skills are masterfully hidden within the loving story of our beloved grandfather Artorian. This is a great emotional ride with laugh out loud segments along with cry your heart out. You will not be disappointed. Travis narration of the book is awesome and flawless. The life he brings to the characters are vibrant, comical, and heart felt. Once of the best narrators on audible.

Another great book!

This entry in Artorian's Archives is undoubtedly my most loved chapter thus far in the zany headmaster's backstory. As time marches unsteadily on, the denizens of Cal's soul space continue to grow their organizations and realms as they pursue the creation of Cal's end goal: Eternium, as experienced in the Completionist Chronicles. Complete with an astonishing cameo here at the end of the book, I'm convinced that fans will not be disappointed!

endless, nothingness

I loved the first three books of this series. the story was always fun and showed progress toward a goal.. Now the story feels like is has lost direcrion and momentum.

i love these stories but....

They are soooo ADD it hurts some time i don’t mine some side story’s with my books but this is a side story in a side story and the MC get so bored of what he’s doing the rest of the cast spend the “WHOLE TIME” trying to get him back on task...

i will buy the next book but the lack of focus is tiring.

Can't even finish

I have loved all of the other books except this one. I couldn't even finish listening to it and I was very motivated because I was just finishing book 5. It's sad, I thought that the narration from Luke changed a few things, but this narrator, I can't seem to follow. It's part of the story, but too many characters introduced without a background, just got to chapter 11... still no idea of what's happening... I will try to listen again, hopefully I will get it the second time around and maybe give a better review.

Good, but the ending...

so in most of Autorian's Archives the ending sets up for the next book, the same as this one. But for some reason the cliffhanger this time felt...less than the others for some reason. This is more opinion based review and I would still listen again, just probably with the next book at the same time.
