Summary

Fresh off their victory over Graves and his followers, Marcus and his friends have managed to enjoy a few weeks of relative calm and peace as they continue to build Aldford, preparing the town for a new wave of settlers coming from Eberia. But as the days wear on with no new arrivals in sight, they begin to fear the worse, eventually setting out to search for their promised reinforcements and soon realizing that they weren’t as alone on the frontier as they thought they were.

Just managing to rescue a caravan of settlers in the nick of time from a horde of bandits, Marcus and the rest of Virtus barely have a chance to catch their breath before they find themselves thrust into the middle of Eberian politics, revealing a plot that threatens not only to take away their hard-won independence...but to destroy Aldford completely.

Half Assed Ending

I think the story of these books are fantastic, however I can't recommend people buying these books as the author has no intention of continuing the story ark, as he is no longer publishing for Amazon. Author has released a new book new story, leaving this one incomplete.

Good story and of course a great narrator

I'm really enjoying this series. Book 1.5 threw me for a bit of a loop, but it tied in with this one, so I'm glad I listened to it. The Story really ramps up toward the end with a great climactic ending. Luke does a good job of balancing story with LitRPG elements and doesn't overwhelm the listener with stat sheet updates

I'd never have got through it on paper!

I enjoyed this next installment, but I'm not sure how great I would find it without Luke Daniels' fantastic narration.

However, even the amazing Luke Daniels couldn't altogether hide the repetition in Luke Chmilenko's writing. Sentences along the lines of "They couldn't hide their concern. Furrows of concern creasing their brows." (that wasn't a direct quote as I didn't bookmark them in the audio book - but there were MANY such sentences).

I'd definitely listen to another, as long as Luke Daniels is narrating again, but I'd really appreciate it being a little shorter next time. 24 hours is rather intimidating!!

GOOD BOOK

I have over 300 audible titles and I have to say that the narration and performance of this book is one of the best I've heard. It's a compelling universe with a great story and awesome characters

Outstanding to say the least

Another homerun by Luke Chmilenko and Luke Daniels. Can’t wait to see what next book brings.

Deeply Satisfying

All the books in this series have gone above and beyond even my best expectations. Every time you get to a place the author COULD have ended it and drawn out the series as smaller, more episodic pieces...there is more! And the story, characters, world, and narrator are all so compelling that "more" is EXACTLY what you're hoping for.

If all books were this good, I'd spend more money on them every month that than I do on my rent. This series is my new "gold standard", which is unfortunate, since very very few other series will be able to live up to such a standard for me.

Great listening

Ok so book two was different and difficult for me to get through but I was pleasantly surprised at how it tied in to this one. I’m definitely going to get book four as soon as it’s released on audible.

MC often forgets his own powers.

I was thoroughly enjoying this book. It had humor, action, suspense, political intrigue, and a great game world. I couldn’t put it down until, the author has he MC forget his own powers. It is one of my biggest pet peeves in fantasy. It happens when an author makes his character too powerful and needs to create suspense.
For example the MC has a big battle with an old enemy, and not once did he use his blink step. He went from a badass who blinked across the battle field in previous battles to and idiot who slowly runs up the the bad guy who is fighting his friend. He use to be able to blink in an instant but now instead he gets killed and he deserved it (i understand the pressure of battle may make people react irrationally but his whole schtick is that he and his guild have trained and prepared themselves more than others). I actually no longer wanted him to succeed in the book. He is suppose to be a spell sword, but he almost never uses his spells. Sure he might cast a spell shield, but come on!! Aargh I wanted to actually yell at the author.
It’s lazy and you lost me as a fan.

An expertly crafted tale from start to end

Chmilenko surprises yet again with a well thought out story and involving characters. The progression of the events never seems to slow and leaves you wanting more. The characters are endearing and allow the reader/listener to care for them. I for one, am looking forward to the next installment of the series.

Oh wow what a great series!!!!!

The story was a amazing ride. The narrator and the writer did a awesome job of making me feel like it was happening right before my eyes. This needs to be a anime.
