Summary

The Path to Peace brought them to the gates of the old city. Now Alburet and his friends will need to find their way into the vaults under the city. They will need to bypass the undead and the cultists that roam the city to even find those tunnels, and that’s only the start of the troubles they will face.

Traitors to Stormguard are uncovered, and the King will have to be told. That can only happen after they deal with the two quests that have brought them this far. Vladimir Dracon hopes to put his brother Dimitry to rest, slaying the one known as the Dragon Eater, while Sir Cody Carter has come to make sure the Urn of Souls is destroyed so it doesn’t fall into Stein’s hands.

What happens under Peace will tilt the balance of what is to come: either in favor of the Crown of Stormguard, or for Stein and his cultists.

Welcome back to Alpha World.

Contains adult themes.

Fan-Freaking-Tastic

schinhofen brings a fantastic story to the penultimate novel in the Alpha world saga. A brilliant cliff hangar leaving his readers clawing for the next book.

I need the next book now!!!!

I've really loved this series, but boy what a cliff hanger to leave this one on. I can't wait for Alpha World 8. Sad to hear it'll be the last in the series and that Delta World is a way off yet. The narration is great and has been all the way through with different characters able to be determined by voice alone. Pacing is good and a great continuation of the story. I can't wait till AW8 book gets released and almost certainly not until the Audio book gets released sometime after that.

Fangtastic

The writing style of this part of the series is more in keeping with the first few books, which is great in my opinion. Less focus on grooming fluff and more focus on the actual alpha world storyline. Nice cliff hanger. Can’t wait for the next instalment... 5/5

finally a book as good as the first

the first book in the series was great, but after the series went downhill with the strange sex fantasy stuff. the 7th book is a complete 180 and just as great if not better than the first book.

Better than the last.

A lot more RPG and political content than the last book. A lot less emotional nonsense. I managed to finish this book quickly and I enjoyed it.

I like this book

For me the whole series has been good. Negative reviews are not wrong, but the psychological stuff plays into the AI medical use of the game which is in other stories I’ve listen to. Next this book finally had less of the love love stuff. In fairness the previous books the repetition of love and insecurity was to much, the rest of the story told has been solid.

Character updates..

To many character updates... Other then that, a good book. I especially like the ending for this book compared to the last one, since this actually makes you want the next book.

it's gotten worse

it's almost as though the writer doesn't remember what rules he's set. makes it so the main characters imps can only be halved by fire protection, and can summon 50+ imps. but there's times that does massive damage and times when it's fully negated. the main characters leveled quickly or so we were told due to a quest from the last book. yet it seems every character leveled up just as quickly, with NO explanation as to how as well as going back against the "this will take months"

add in that the stats that are given ad nauseam to the main character are utterly meaningless. his "suit" should have him the equal to everyone in their given area of expertise. But it's just not the case.

the main character is weak when the writer wants to add a MacGuffin, and overly strong when the writer want a hero.

I won't be following any further. really feel bad for the narrator is the only part that has kept me through the last book and a half.
