Summary

Olgerd and his tribal NPC gang have finally discovered the Forbidden City. Problem is, they haven't found what they were looking for. The ancient maps are hopelessly out of date, and the Ennan capital city is lying in ruins.

In the meantime, their enemies are closing in. Noctean hordes are arriving from the Silver Mountain Valley; the Dark army has already crossed the Back Stream, and the forces of Light have already entered the Icy Woods.

The magic protection sphere which Olgerd received from the city's invisible guardians is about to expire.... The only way he can save the lives of his trusty NPC friends is by activating the Twilight Obelisk.

fantastic conclusion

this was a great end to the series. I do agree with other reviewers that the book was kind of rushed in the end ( whats with the Tanner business?) I think we might have added another book to the series maybe... or another hundred pages to this book. Thank you Alexey for taking us to Mirror world. I had a great time!

Disorganized

First of all, read the books in order. This book lacks the introductory explanation to ease the reader into the story. This book follows on where the third book ended. Remember the mirror he got? Yeah it gets used once in this book but never explained. It's deus ex machina but the author thinks about these things books in advance so I guess it's ok.

The story is a little disorganized and isn't as exciting as the previous books in the series. This is due in part to the disconnected nature of the substories. The lead up to the next book is ackwardly tacked on. It should be an afterword.

The plot outcome is still a surprise. Yes he raids dungeons, yes he gets cool loot, and yes he levels up.

Never thought I could Binge an audio series

I have to give credit where credit is due. Mirror World is an amazing series which leaves me constantly yearning for the advancement of VR technology. There's just enough reality thrown into this crazy adventure that I feel like I could jump into Mirror World give or take a few years. It truly is amazing. <3 The world itself is wonderfully built. Osaduchuk really knows how to se the stage and expand upon the world without detracting from the plot...… The characters too are masterfully done. Watching them progress has been an absolute joy to listen too. Osaduchuk took great care to make sure stagnant waters stayed far away from our heroes. Which is a trap a lot of authors tend to fall into. Natural progression is very important and it's nice to see it flow so easily here. Also, I have to give credit to our Voice Actor~! I was engaged the entire time I was listening. Not once did I ever feel like the emotions were forced and the voices were just so spot on! Great work. A VA can make or break and Audiobook and I honestly can't wait to hear your voice again.

The story feels like "The Last Jedi" movie.

While I enjoyed the series and performance I felt that the writing was leading up to something more but in the end I felt the writer decided he was done with the story and just wanted to take the easy way out leaving what could have been a much better story behind. The intrigue set forth in the previous books is just cast aside with no real explanation leaving me to feel much like Star Wars episode 8...

Disappointing

Still a fair book just not compared to the previous three. Story felt choppy and started off so slow I almost didn’t listen to the story. If it had not been for the first three books I would not have lasted beyond the first two hours

Loved the first 3, can't finish this one

Literally. I listen at night and I keep falling asleep during it. Not sure what's even happening cause I can't stay awake.

Buy if you want to cure insomnia.

too squirrel!

The performance of this book was excellent. However the author's tendency to have the main character ramble off in random directions, be afraid of affectively what is a game, randomly wasting his own time, and prevent himself from acting was very very frustrating.

Enjoyable - might have some translation errors.

I listed at 1.5x so the slowness that some people have complained about didn't seem to effect me as much.

Through the whole book I kept hearing the narrator say avant-garde when I think what the author meant was vanguard (the leading force) or advanced guard (the first into the fray). That minor thing kept making my teeth ache like nails on a chalkboard.

To be completely fair, in late Middle English avant-garde denoted the vanguard of an army. However in modern parlance it is more commonly used to reflect unorthodox and experimental methods in advancing various fields (e.g. visual, literary, or musical arts, etc.).

When I started the book I didn't know the original definition, but now that I've finished the book I had to look up the words to make sure I wasn't using avant-garde incorrectly. It turns out we're both right but I would still recommend using more contemporary language/definitions in future translations.


On the topic of the story, I feel like the story did advance and I really enjoyed the "in-game" events. I was a little dismayed about some possibilities (that probably weren't possibilities in the mechanics of the world built here) that the main character didn't explore to accomplish some tasks.

All in all, I look forward to the next book.
