Summary

Fresh from the success of capturing Gwain’s Keep, Alpha Company is in high spirits. Flush with coin, everyone is eager to get better gear and see what new zones they can go fight in.

Not everything is roses though, as the first testing phase is about to come to an end. A number of those who ventured forth with the guild are about to return to their regular lives, and the next wave of testers brings even more players to embrace Alpha World as their new reality, if only for a limited time.

Alburet has new complications to deal with, but he doesn’t have to face them alone. Two other loving women - Fluffball and Karen - whom he has accepted the love of will be at his side as the revelation of his past comes out.

Will Alburet be able to handle what he has hidden from himself, with the love of the trio of women beside him? Or will he break and fail, leaving his spirit fractured?

Too much sex, not enough story

I've worked my way through the other books so was excited when I saw this one had been released, now it's finished I feel it's the weakest so far. there wasn't enough adventuring and with too much time spent on the sex the book was over before it really got going. The narrator was very easy to listen to as he was previously.

Strayed from what makes LIT RPG’s great

I feel like Daniel has strayed from what makes lit RPG’s great ( adventures. Epic quests, loot, boss battles and leveling up). I saw it in the last book but thought I’d give this one a chance before I make a decision. He’s concentrating to much on the drama and mental health between the characters. I feel like the majority of story I’m sitting in a therapist office.

Well, Not For Me

I truly enjoyed the first book, and the second book was a wonderful listen as well. However, it seems that the author has lost touch with the fan base... it now seems like a LitRPG based off of a romance novel. Might be good for some people, but not for me. I've gone through perhaps 9 hours or the novel so far... only listening to 50 minutes or so of actual content that wasn't related to feeling-searching, multi-species and multiple partner sex, and a protagonist who lets others lead him around.

Yeah. Not for me.

1 page of actual rpg for every 10 pages of bedroom

first 2 books were good. then just feelings and sex. Very little world building and lots of repeated junk. i didn't want to get this book but i was hopeful. Just about the same as the 4th book. if you liked 4th book then this is the book for you.

Couldn’t make it past the first hour

I loved the first 2 books. The last 2 have gone away from what I love about litrpg. The books are now more about group sex and less about dungeons, loot, grinding, leveling, and building a class. I did enjoy the character development and going into their memories but it’s eclipsed by the over sexualization.

It’s a shame. I was very into the characters and development of the guild but I’m out.

10% great story 90% repetitive filler

I really enjoyed the previous books. Even tho it went a little hard the sex but I didn't mind. but this book is just useless filler. it ends on a cliff hanger that could have been in the middle of the story if it didn't just have all padding.

Poorly written so now the main character sounds like a sleazy car salesmen at this point. other characters are just too simple and borning.

sad part is that little bit of real story is great but it's surrounded by a sea of meh.

Gaming good, crappy psychology bad

Love all the guild, gaming and raid parts of story. Hate the character Fluff and any dialogue about or with her.

less romance more action please

With each book there's less and less action and more lovey dovey nonsense. They must say kiss 15 thousand times, and the pet names are excruciatingly cringey.

Long on suffering, short on satisfaction.

Author spends too much time agonizing over internal cutesy, while the story of alpha company goes nowhere. Fluff meet Al.. 13 hours later..nada

I loved the other books, but this one...

is just porn. If you listen to your audiobooks in public like many of us do this book is not for you.

When is the next book

As always the writer finds the best way to set a cliff hanger into the next book, making you want more.

Over all this book has lots of character building but in no way is it boring. Out of all the character building out there this was done skillfully, artfully, and in a new way.
