It is leveling out.

Through the many books they have been leading up to the creatures being released. It is finally time. I have read my fellows reviews and agree with most, but there are some points I would like to argue.

Some say this book may be a filler book and doesnt contain anything important, this is untrue. There are maybe 6 different plot points that are valuable in this book that would be sorely missed if skipped over.

There are intense fights and astonishing breakthroughs in tech and gear. There was even one portion that tugged at my heart strings even more than the other books. I will avoid spoiling while simply urging you to continue through these books.

If I had to list cons, I would start with the repetition. From the words used, to the overarching theme of "the monsters are coming", to the annoying reiteration of an entire character sheet 2 minutes after it had just been read even though only two minor things had changed.

Possible Minor Spoiler Alert : Another con would be the leveling system. It has gone haywire and I can tell the author didn't plan this far ahead. Levels of monsters reach past 1000 and is a totally incapable of accurately measuring power. There are hidden masters ranging from levels 600 to 1500. This makes me to wonder why everyone was freaking out about Boran Al's Citadel which hand maybe a dozen level 130's. Looking back it seems silly that a master wasn't sent in to wipe the floor with them.

With Dave being only around level 200, but having a technical stat power level of 1000, this is all getting a bit much.

End Spoiler

Some other things I miss are the stat gains from physical exertion, which is understandable, the affinity charts are no longer listed, and skills no longer level up, and no new skills are found or worked on.

The voice actor, while having a large repertoire of voices, has a habit in the way he talks leaving the words old and overused.

TL;DR : This book focuses on build up, leaving much to be desired. It could be a lot better, but it sure could be a hell of a lot worse too. There are still things you dont want to miss.

To much detail.

I found a battle scenes overly descriptive and very boring sometimes. This is a good series like rest of the books and kept me interested.

where's the beef

This one felt like filler. I'll try number 8 but if it's as bad as 7 that'll be it

It went from badass smith story to a dating game

To start things off I really love the world that was built and the magic system but the books are being more and more filler.

I dont know how many times I would see myself skipping 30 seconds ahead just to get away from "I starred into her eyes and he started into mine and I knew that he knew how I felt" bullshit. I'm fine with people having relationships but the books feel more like suffering through 6 different high school couples writing sappy love letters to each other.

After all that the story itself doesnt get real far either with all the bad teenage angst filler. Hell the biggest thing the stone raiders do is go for a portal and never even go inside!

Every characters the same

Narrator was awesome. Story not so much. Imagine all dialogue structured as above. It would be fine if only a character or two abandoned pronouns but pretty much every character, almost every sentance gets old really fast and makes them all sound the same. This becomes very frustrating as the story spends a tremendous amount of time on support characters making it very hard to remember who is who and who's doing what. Kudos to the narrator for doing a bang up job.

A slough

It feels af if the story has gone on for too long. I've enjoyed the story up to this point but it's starting to drag out pretty badly at this point. I finished the book but it took a force of willpower to do so.

Better but still repetitive

Now that they are finally facing foes that they don't painfully outmatch, the filler which is the endless combat is a bit better. It is however still too repetitive to be an enjoyable listen to. The entire book is full of repetitive lines which makes it exhausting to listen to but the fights are the best example. With one short combat sequence describing the protagonist as a 'goddess of war' three times in nearly as many sentences.

If the author would just cut out the repetitive segments, he would probably cut out 6 hours of writing. That is not good.
