Publisher's Summary

The competition between the Scions of Safaia and the Ancient Cavern Beast Furea is about to begin.

Thrown into the tournament, Roy finds that there are more than a few challengers who outclass him. The secret to victory lies between the pages of an ancient book and newly-awakened senses he does not fully understand.

All the while, a sinister voice not belonging to Geon whispers in his mind.

The tournament will test Roy and his allies as never before and with the fate of the continent on the line, they will need to advance, or be washed away in the tide of carnage that will follow.

So dissapointed

the series has been a fun take on cultivation story archetype. reoccurring characters feels like world building rather than something episodic and a great narrator. this book may be the last I read, what a disappointing turn.


Spoiler
it suddenly became something of a fan fiction out of nowhere. main character has Naruto and Sasuke powers almost literally. another character is dealing with a cursed mark. O enjoy a good fanfiction but it's not what I want or expected from this series

Super enjoyable

Story: entertaining
Performance: excellent as always. Mare has a voice that is enrapturing.

If you’re just seeing this book and have listened to all of the previous ones, go buy them and start now.

Nice Addition

A nice continuation of this world. The author continues to keep you interested with both his world and character building. Also, there are enough new characters to bring new intrigue, without cluttering up the story unnecessarily. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series.
