Summary

After a night of drunken debauchery following the defeat of the academy's headmistress, Lucas awakens to trouble on all fronts. The steady balance of power within the Imperium has been shaken by his presence, and the resulting aftermath is a town full of heavily armed and well-staffed enemies that seek Lucas' death. Lucas must not only survive their assault but also manage his own slowly crumbling internal affairs when his party begins to fracture. Angered by Lucas' increasingly selfish actions, some of his closest allies are tempted to turn against him.

Follow our protagonist while he tries to grow his influence within the empire, survive the daggers in his back from Imperium traitors, and restore the relationship he truly wants with the woman he has slowly fallen in love with in this epic litrpg adventure from Charles Dean.

Wrapped it up nicely

Great story from an awesome writer. Great performance from an awesome company. A touching message at the end that brought a tear or two to my eyes. If you have heard or read the other two then it cannot be left unfinished. Charles Dean writes very compelling stories and they benefit even further from the love and care Soundbooth theatre give to their performances and sound design. Do yourself a favour and get all the books by either the Author or the production company and you will be entertained over and over again like I have for years now. Thank you to them all for filling a great big entertainment void in me :-)

An Ending.

Not quite the epic and thorough conclusion that we got from his other series. However it was better then what most authors give their fans. Sound booth theater did an an amazing job! I was also sad to hear about the authors dad. Also the author should not feel so much pressure to put out. I would rather wait for a good ending then a rushed one. Prolific authors like eric vale and Simon Archer put out pure garbage and that is why they can publish so much. I believe the author of this book is one of the best.

Good, but not satisfied.

First, I do like this series and enjoyed the voice acting, but I am left unsatisfied by the abrupt ending of this book series. Why? It didn't feel like a true ending and felt forced with it's message (a good message). I felt overwhelmed with the harem cliche and the story not focused on the game aspect anymore. Yes it is in there, but by the end(this book)... it clearly wasn't important anymore and shows. The story builds a challenge for a MC in the game and it crumbles to dust, kinda like in the 2nd book. He got a empty plot of land to start from ground zero and gives us an idea that he will build something awesome with it, goes nowhere. Also, he never creates another monster again. Either something gets wrapped up too quickly or pushed off a cliff.

Amazing Series

I loved this series but War Aeternus is my favorite of this authors series. This was a great end and I can't wait for the next series by this author. Narration was great as always.

I only hate that it had to end, and the last page will make you enjoy the authors time even more.

Good but too short.

I enjoyed this book series but it was too short. I of course much prefer a good ending over a series that goes on to long and screws up the magic. Thank you.
