Summary

Not every human, elf, or dwarf could be equally important to me - that's a fact I accepted long ago. I was here to serve my role and help end this war, not to achieve world peace or save mankind. It was so that I could someday lead a comfortable and happy life with the people I loved and cared for.

Arthur Leywin has experienced two lifetimes of challenge and adventure. He has lived as a swordsman, a mage, an adventurer, and a king. Now his two lives, old and new, will collide, revealing the connection between King Grey and Arthur Leywin, but at what cost?

How will this affect the ongoing war between the nations of Alacrya and Dicathen? Enemy forces threaten the coastal cities, the elven forests, and the fortified mountain passes. Dicathen’s most powerful allies have vanished, and the military alliance between men, elves, and dwarves threatens collapse. Arthur may be the last hope for his people, but when forced to choose between family and country, where will his loyalty lie?

Lots of action!

This book has lots of action but the MC's development let me down. This is his second life and yet he still repeats the same emotional mistakes. Why is it he loses every battle but they let him live every time? Still a good read and I enjoyed it.

Good but not great

Good but not as good as the last book. Very predictable reveals. Tess was the most stupid and literally made the same mistake twice, owell might aswell finish the series.

amazing

No trouble binging this at all. The cliff hanger at the end is a bit unfair by the author tho... Some people disliked the chapters written from other characters viewpoint but imo it made the world building much stronger. Strongest book in the series imo.

Not bad but frustraging

This book suffers from the same problems as the one before it. It is still an enjoyable read, but now about 50% of the book is either from other's point of view, or a flashback from the MC's past life. I will definitely read this series until the end. However, I am no longer furiously devouring it page by page like I did before. I find myself skimming the chapters on side characters and random enemies. There were 3 or 4 full chapters told from an enemy's point of view that ended up being pointless. I won't go into why, as that would be a spoiler.

This series is going downhill.

To much back and forth between past and present. To many point of views. should keep it to Art and Tes. I can only hope this changes in future books.

Divergence from a good story is more adequate

If you crave a well built world, with progression, an MC that overcomes challenges, grows as a person, and has an overall positive impact on the world around him, then be prepared for massive disappointment! One would think that after so many novels we would be past the angsty indecision’s plaguing a young MC, but no, it’s worst than ever. The entire book is basically a case study in how to fail at everything you attempt...all while suffering from a debilitating inability to make a choice that would have any sort of positive impact on the world around you... As a long time fan of the story I think it may be time to shelve this series until I have a chance to read several reviews of the next installment. It’s just not worth the time spent to follow the MC on his path of self destruction...

Summed up in one word...Meh

I've enjoyed the series so far. This book is just so boring. I had 3 hours left and just couldn't finish it. Nothing really new gets introduced and a lot of it feels like filler content. The characters don't really evolve in this book. The overall feeling is doom and gloom. Maybe something really interesting gets added in the end, but I just cannot get myself to finish it.

Greedy Writing

The author has done an annoying job of hacking up the story and stretching it out for more books. You can/have to skip over a ton of filler that literally does nothing to change how much you know about the story or characters.

Disappointing.

I don't think I'll be continuing on with this series. It was good, for a while but no longer.

Phenomenal

Well this book was amazing as expected. What I didn't expect was this book to make a grown man cry. Make sure you have a Box of Kleenex next to you when you listen to this book.

The Author is ruthless

The story the author has made one of the best. I love how he is so ruthless about not letting us forget that this is a losing battle and how everthing seems for not.
