Summary

Hunted at every turn while the Chaos Storm Guild Leader's plans near fruition, Startum Ironwolf and his friends must fight their way through the vanguard of the northern hordes and mass of PKers to reach their friend. On their way, they meet up with new friends and old enemies as the noose slowly closes around them.

Good Continuation

I wasn't really a fan of the additional view points after the previous books had mostly be centered on a single view point. The story however was really good and an excellent contribution to the series. I'm hopeful that the next books in this series will continue to focus on the MC Jay (Lord Ironwolf). I'd definitely recommend this series. The combination of rts and rpg elements blend immensely well.

it seemed like only half a book...

I enjoyed the book as always, but i was expecting a bit more. I kept waiting for the epic battle that the last book promised. if you enjoyed the series then its deffenatly worth a listen but its more of a bridge than a story of its own.

All filler. Little plot progress

Your basically going though events in real time with this edition. Book finishes half way though the story.

I need Mr. Cheek to write in more evil laughter.

I'm serious Mr. Hill has the best evil laugh in the game. If either of the Jason's read this I need them to put more laughter in the stories or just a laugh track at the end. Love series in it till the end

Jay delivers, like always a phenomenal litrpg.

I really enjoyed this next edition of the world. My only critiques are as follows. The breaking up of the chapters didn't make sense, to me and the story didn't progress as far as I thought it should have. It only progressed a day and a half. I appreciate the details and intrigue, but maybe focusing on story progression a little more would be better. I feel like I should have gotten more. Spoiler alert and the part with the badger kin is leading to something I know but it should be part of the post credits. The part with Julie( the evil bitch) should have been expanded upon and been the last chapter. All that being said I really enjoyed this book and recommended it to others. Thanks Jason and Jason

Good, but the story is slowing down.

First off, this is one of my favorite LitRPG series. The character development is great, and the world is interesting. This book carries on that trend, but it has some downsides that take away from the story. The MC's inner monologue is getting out of hand. It seems that the story pauses every 20 minutes so the MC can have a 5 minute internal debate on how dire the situation is. Additionally, it is incredibly repetitive. Hopefully this trend will slow down in future books. Next is the MC's group of professional gamer friends. They are terrible most of the time. From being crappy friends to useless players. I am not sure how they are so successful as a guild. Overall though, I did like the book. The story barely advances, but I am still looking forward to the next in the series.

Brutal listening

Not a fan of this one, real boring feel to this book. Too much arguing between characters. Basically had this "Get on with it already" type vibe the entire story.

Stellar Book * Rocket-Star Fun!

I love an author with not just drive, but the organization to be counted upon by his/her reader base. Even if health challenges an outdated method of attack and completion goals; I have faith that with your work ethic (and with your family's "overwatch!"), you'll find a groove of joy, fortification and success ;-)) I truly enjoy a meaty book with invested character and world development. It seems the trend to (and reader reviews for many genres and writing styles are unfortunately pushing more authors to adapt/not apply themselves), in not weaving in settings and the senses. Even the small discussions that make characters "real" and the quirks each have (which you apply without wearing out the horse with copy & paste style), by not needing to only be about the bottom line plot that rushes everything into a skeletal work of lost society; and the true fulfilment of worlds and ideas (not to mention entertaining, engaging, rewarding, enriching and a memorable book for readers!!!). I bought the series this week because I saw later on that the page count would raise. I liked the flow, and that the game mechanics were not only spot-on and adaptively complex to be interesting; but not an override to the story. In book six, I liked the shorter chapter layout (though I'm not against short chapters and find it's being overused by many), and the lower instance of character sheet interludes. It may have needed one or two more, actually, for those who haven't listened to the whole series straight through. The preface of game days, etc. is a nice touch. You may consider cutting repeats with really short chapters together and with the same people or local. I'd encourage time stamping. Since a book doesn't straddle multitudes of day; perhaps occasional day reminders, with the focus on time and what group, local and/or POV. Super editing bytheway! Hardly anything amiss in the continuity while I listened through your Audible format! Thank you! With Regard, Halli

But don’t move fast at all. The whole book is 2-3 days now waiting for next book.
