Summary

The flames of war spread through the Cursed Princedom to devastating effect. Bound by powerful centuries-old magic, the Great Essences yearn to regain their freedom. In the face of an impossible mission, Krian has no choice but to keep going while risking everything that's become dear to him. The only solution is to become stronger and forget the meaning of the word impossible. And so a plangent wolf's howl soars over the battlefield as a plate-clad cavalry rushes the enemy ranks....

A well balanced poorly narrated story.

This is the third book in the Arkon series and the story has grown on me through the novels. The narration on this novel is by far the worst performance thus far, the mixing is terrible and a sub narrator seems to dip in and out which takes you out of the story.

Finally the series takes off.

Any additional comments?

In previous books the editing has been choppy, the flow from scene to scene wasn't there, and many battles were skipped so you could get to the boss battle right away. A lot of questions that should have been answered in the first book are answered now, the flow is better, and the story really picks up.

Becoming an exercise in frustration

While there are still some strengths to the story, it's quickly growing stale like day old bread. It's far too easy for the reader to lose track as to the "why's" the main character is moving from one principality to another. Some story elements introduced in the first novel never show up again (caravans to travel long distances because fast travel and portals between cities no longer exist). Additionally, as many times as Roman states to himself/the reader that he's now completely invested in the game world now being his only world, he continues to reference the outside world. And without the ability to return to the real world, why is Roman so set on getting revenge on Cheney? I can understand wanting to thwart him in game due to the new twists the author injects into this installment of the series, but still looking to get revenge for locking Roman into a world where he's effectively immortal and a Marty Stu to boot? It's getting old. And Zach Villa mispronouncing words is also getting old. How many books does it take for the producers to listen to Mr Villa's efforts before they tell him it's pronounced "ree-ay-gents" (along with all of the other words he mispronounces on a regular basis)? A regent is something else that has nothing to do with chemistry/alchemy.

I'll most likely continue with the next novel when it becomes available because I'm a "completionist" and I'm enjoying the plot-line involving Max and Luffy. But if there aren't some serious changes made to the story, and if Mr Villa doesn't get a "proof-reader", then I'm going to call this series quits and I'll have to go back and change my previous reviews.

If you love a fantasy setting with a Marty Stu, then you'll probably enjoy this series. If you're looking for a series with more substance to it; deeper characters with a more compelling world and story, then I'd recommend you move on to something else.

good story, still needs better audio

Really like the story and characters, sometimes the narrators characters sound too much alike and he mispronounces several words. If that sort of thing bothers you like it does me then it will take away from the overall experience like it did for me. I would still recommend reading this book, and the audible is ok if that's the only way you have time to read books currently.

Needs a new director/editor to fix the audio and catch mistakes!

I like this series

I just wish he would make the books twice as long. Also his reader needs to find out how to say Luffy properly. When he say it, it sounds like Lauffy.

Great LitRPG.

I highly recommend this series. As with the previous books the narrator does a good job with the voices and a decent job with delivery and inflection. However he still mispronounces words (many of which are relatively common) so regularly that it makes me want to slap him. After two books you’d think that he’d stop playing “hooked on phonics” and actually bother to look up the words whose pronunciation he’s clearly only guessing at.

All I can say is, “Thank God Nick Podehl takes over as narrator for the rest of the series!”

Real of Arkon

Akella wrote a great series up to book 3.
I listen on audible so I have not gone past this book, but I am eagerly awaiting the next installment to the series.

Story is of great quality.
Entertainment value is high.

Villa gave a great performance.

Great story

I really enjoyed how much detail goes into the story. And all the jokes put in here and there make it that much more enjoyable.

incredible

I haven't rated the first two books but if u see this one before the others I highly suggest this series. the only bummer is that some of the lesser fights aren't as detailed but there are so many I understand. simply a incredible series so many twists and turns yet enough to still understand what's happening

Bat-at-BOOM

The wolf legion is freakin KICKING ASS!!! I didn’t like how the book was started off with the side characters which took me for a trip, but their story is slowly growing on me. Trips me out when there r different voice for the Sam character throughout the story but it still doesn’t ruin the story.
