Summary

King Alexander and his guildmates have expanded Elysia into a formidable kingdom. Their ongoing battle against the Dark One and the drow wizards is escalating. Alexander works to bring together the Elves, Dwarves, and Human Kingdoms to establish the alliance proposed by the Dragon King. But the dark magic of the drow has infiltrated even the highest offices, blocking his efforts.

War comes once again to the gates of the keep, and Alexander must find a way to defend his citizens before he can go on the offensive and take the fight to the stronghold of his enemies. All of Io, citizens and players alike, are pulled into war as the forces of darkness strive to destroy or enslave every surface city.

Olympus is still under siege, and the threat intensifies as doctors determine it's necessary to wake Jules from her months-long slumber. Jules and Alexander prepare to meet face to face for the first time, with a little help from their friends.

Join the Greystone Guild for this epic conclusion of a LitRPG tale of magic, monsters, wizards, and dragons.

Yet another great book

Another great installment of the greystone chronicles, only problem I had was how Fitzs being a dragon was just brushed over. Unless I missed it he never told Alexander or the others yet they all acted like they already new, apart from that I loved the story.

Lame ending to a good series, at lest I think it’s the end.

Story was dragged out then just ended. Basically lots of overpowered players get everything, lots of dragons pop up to add to the over poweredness then bad guy meets his end in a cheesy way. Story ends. Nothing about what happens to any characters.

SBT did a good job on this book. They finally got a hang of that volume knob so the sound effects don’t drown out the narrators. A few spot where a bit strange or lacking. The sound effects where just weak and didn’t quite match what was going on. Some places could of used richer effects like they’ve done before.

More cohesive and better performance/sound effect.

Felt a bit rushed at the end, but this one was the best one in my opinion.

Excellent story and conclusion!

This entire series has really been excellent, both with the writing and the Sound Booth actors!

I won't spoil anything and will just say that I enjoyed this book more than the last. While there are still dark moments, there is healing as well and even though there will still be challenges for the characters, it seems they will be better able to face them going forward.

The series wrapped up well, though I would be interested in a follow up book. :-D It could even be a new story arc about helping people with the immersion pods and the challenges that might entail.

Also, Go Rufus! He could have his own story. I mean, he's Fitz's familiar and has probably seen a lot of crazy things.

Holy shit, Fitz!

The epic conclusion has arrived! So, one of my favorite litRPGs comes to a close. I love this story, it brings a smile to my face so many times while listening. The characters, the world-building, everything was excellent. The performance by Soundbooth Theatre was extraordinary. I must agree with others that the ending was rushed and quite anticlimactic. There are also many loose ends and questions left unanswered. All this time I never knew Fitz’s true background. I wondered if I had missed something all along or if this was a big reveal? What of the Dragon Empire, did they not have a battle as well? Ky and Lea, the baby dragons, Fibble and his bonded dragon, the Mithril worms, and the Guardian. There certainly seems to be enough material for another volume or the beginning of a new series. I look forward to seeing more from Dave Willmarth.

Fun story... disappointing ending (Spoilers)

I listened to all 5 of these books over the last couple of months. The characters have their foibles, and they're not always believable, but overall you do come to care about them, in particular Alexander and Jewels.

Which is why I found the ending incredibly abrupt and disappointing. The main villain is defeated, everyone agrees to join the charity work.... the end.

Really?

All this build-up of Alexander and Jewels' relationship, and you don't even have a formal proposal or a wedding? That's all the wrap up we get? Nothing about how Io Online recovers from the big war? C'mon! If it weren't for the ending I would have given this 4 stars for the story. The overall rating is 4 stars because I greatly enjoyed the narration and the overall story, but the ending was so disappointing it got knocked down to 3 stars

Good book series if not a bit cheesy at times

I enjoyed the book, and definitely enjoyed the plot being someone who has a disability it was nice having a the protagonist who had a disability instead of the disabled person being the bitter and and angry bad guy mad at the world and take it out on everyone. It was a bit over the top cheesy at times, but nonetheless a good story over all. I was super bummed about the abrupt ending feeling like I need some more closure, but I overall enjoyed the book.
