Summary

Jason's back! And he's ready for some revenge! 

Roughly a month has passed in-game since Thorn's attack on the Twilight Throne. In that time, the dark city has managed to recover and rebuild - growing the ranks of Original Sin at the same time. 

Which is good, because that brief respite is over. The Avatar of Flame has risen within the depths of the northern desert and has thrown down a digital gauntlet to Jason - with a gate piece hanging in the balance. Even worse? His opponent is none other than Finn Harris, the "father of modern AI". The same man who may have been behind Thorn's attack on the Twilight Throne. 

And in the wake of recent events - the committee hearing back in the real world and the attack on his people - Jason is no longer content to just react; to wallow in the safety of his kingdom. If he's to be painted the villain...well, then it's long past time he fully embraced that role.

Because now it's personal.  

And there'll be no holding back....

You like levels?

Well….Travis Bagwell has just levelled again!
Arguably his best work to date!
Not only does this author pump out material in a very short time, but delivers consistently every time.
David Stifel is as ever a conduit into a fantastic world of characters

great storey

I was wondering how the side quest books would be tied in to the main storey line.

I was not disappointed with this book. it's epic

another amazing instalment

for a long series it doesn't suffer from story fatigue like a lot of litrpgs do.

there is a clear over arching narrative that is progressed be each book. the sub plots are also coming into focus as well.

there is spectacle creep each book going more grand then the last but that fits very well with how the popularity of the game is going in the book.

the start of the book thow me a bit but it payed off

well worth the wait!

Definitely one of the best books in the series, from the narrative to the tying in the threads from the side stories. I'm really looking forward to more

A real reviewer, Not an auto 5 Star

My rating is a C-

Anyone still listening to the series at this point knows what they are getting into.

For me, this book was aggravating, felt lazy and contradicted itself constantly. A very boring first 6+ hours which was mostly unneeded. Lots of repetitive/reused dialogue, Character flaws we thought were over come re-born, petty angst and attempts at humor that are just corny as hell... or just delivered poorly by the Narrator.

The Leveling up’s system seems pointless, stats don't seeming to matter anymore, loot is found once, Very specific spells just able to do what ever in needed in the moment without ever trying them, knowing if in it would work, while other spells that would/should be useful are yet to power up or really even get used. Health & Mana potions are endless... with a new downside which then just gets ignored

The plot is so so predictable. About the best thing is the battle scenes… even then you get anticlimactic ending a majority of the time.

The Review is harsh but that because I love the series. I'm worried the Author is getting fanboy Feedback from his Alpha/Bate readers and the Editing needs help. There are hour of rehashed emotional problems that the characters have already worked through, in multiple books, so why!?!

Where is Jason's Aunt? is she playing AO, is She the Earth Avatar?... if so, we don't need side books on them,

Done the impossible

First, do not listen to this book until you have finished all others in the series (side quests included).There’s not many things in life that always gets better as it progresses. But, this series never fails to amaze me. Every book as enriched the story and develops the characters. This book has combined all the storylines in each prior book. It’s been many years since I’ve gotten emotional while listening to it. In my opinion, the greatest book ever written. I’d give 10/10 stars if that was an option.

Bagwell's Best Yet

Fantastic culmination of the events of the various books, different plot points and side quests. Was a great ride and really makes me wonder what's next!

Welcome to the Darkness Brother

As usual Travis Bagwell and David Stifel are killing it! The Darkness has definitely calmed this reader/listener! From the beginning of the series up to this publication the story and character development have been becoming more intricate. Combined with the edge of the seat excitement the awaken online universe will most assuredly capture your imagination and heart.

everything from the narrator to the continuation of an amazing story. I can't wait to see the how it all ends! Where's my time traveler, I can't wait.

Profound, Punctual, and Fuckin Dope

Entertaining as a Litrpg with decent pacing and provocative ideas all spun into a darkly exciting experience. Hope to see more of that Weasley guy in the next book,

Cheers.

I loved it

I love the way the book just turned unexpectedly and I for one didn't hate the way it was told in the beginning I actually found it quite amusing
