Better than all the rest. Really good litrpg/cultivator type story, a decently fair split between plot and system exposition. Really good story and pacing, the madness is portrayed real well. Honestly I am kinda rooting for Zed as long as he teams up with Luke. You just had to put one more "Ruthless" in there didn't you?

Loved it. The series is made amazing yet again, I just hope the next boom isn't another year away because I can't wait for it.

I was worried after all this time that Jim butcher might have been petering out on this series but I was wrong. This book is his best yet, a true culmination of the entire series. It even did what WOTC failed to do with war of the spark. Have a war in a place you love and see it actually have consequences, as heartbreaking as they are they bring the world that much more to life. Also just wanna take a sec to say how dare you just SLIP those references to other starborn in there. That's too casual, noone paid attention, I was left going "WHAT!?! Didn't you hear what they just said Harry? Why aren't you panicking right now?". Come on man, ma heart can't take that.

An enjoyable heist.

A deeply satisfying book, it does a good job of concluding this arc in the story. The entire objective of the book was enjoyable with the twists that came in getting there. Travis Baldree wss amazing as always.

I loved it. It's a great mix of satisfying current storylines and moving to the next set. Did Luke Daniels not realise Hansel is Hans or was he just trying for a new voice? Either that or Hans has REALLY cracked over the millenia. Given what happened here I am hoping the next Wolfman Warlock title comes out soon. As for now I think I'm gonna have another listen and take a shot every time the title comes up.

Delightful

So much like a cultivation story and yet not too. Kenneth Arant is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors and he only has two books. Thank you to Travis Baldree, who's amazing voice led me to a new author.

Too Short, need a second book

There really isn't anything wrong with it. It isn't cliched or too slow in pace, it isn't unnecessarily violent or sexual, it doesn't push any moral values nor eschew any, nor does it seem to be a mary sue for getting back at any specific type of person the author has a chip for. The narrator isn't too slow or narrow in their characterisation, nor too fast, grand, distracting or wacky. There is literally NOTHING wrong with this book and everything to enjoy about it. This is the Goldie-locks bowl of books... it's just not long enough...

Hilariously original in an unoriginal way, it puts the thoughts in my head when I play zelda and dragon quest or any of those amazing gems from my childhood onto a page. The blunt fusion of terms for the names and skills gives a great captain america "I understood that reference" feeling. The demon lord was the best, amazing "actor". Exactly what I needed.

Where's the next one

Good book, I loved the way it paralleled and in some ways proceeded the Ritualist. I am a fan of the troll nation series and liked the nods that it got. It's nice to think that the two worlds are somehow linked, with the software compabies mentioned, though I don't remember if they were in the other books. You can tell the influence that Dakota Krout has had on the book, the way that CAL's system messages are written in matches perfectly with the rest of the series. The L.A.W. sounds like the ritual the wolfmen were using that joe interupted too. Only negative was that occasionally the narration would skip sections of the book. Would mostly not have noticed but I was reading along with it and there was also a point where it went from a conversation before they saved Finn right into the middle of a conversation with Finn. Can't wait to see what the wolf pack will be going on to do next.

A litrpg with substance

Unlike most generic lit-rpg this series has a deep and entertaining plot. The mc experiences and has to actually work through challenges and the character interaction is realistic and multidimensional. The reasons for the litrpg aspect of the story are plausible and make the whole story come together in a way that other stories fail to capture. My only complaint is that occasionally a line will be read in a way that doesn't match the descriptor that comes after it, it keeps the characters closer to how the narrator has brought them to life which is nice but it kind of throws me off when it happens.
