Publisher's Summary

Not every human, elf, or dwarf could be equally important to me - that's a fact I accepted long ago. I was here to serve my role and help end this war, not to achieve world peace or save mankind. It was so that I could someday lead a comfortable and happy life with the people I loved and cared for.

Arthur Leywin has experienced two lifetimes of challenge and adventure. He has lived as a swordsman, a mage, an adventurer, and a king. Now his two lives, old and new, will collide, revealing the connection between King Grey and Arthur Leywin, but at what cost?

How will this affect the ongoing war between the nations of Alacrya and Dicathen? Enemy forces threaten the coastal cities, the elven forests, and the fortified mountain passes. Dicathen’s most powerful allies have vanished, and the military alliance between men, elves, and dwarves threatens collapse. Arthur may be the last hope for his people, but when forced to choose between family and country, where will his loyalty lie?

Monotonous

Battle after battle, debate after debate, flashback after flashback. They were good and interesting in the first few books, but this is the sixth book. I want something new and interesting. I couldn't listen to a single chapter all the way through.

Feels like the story should be finished already

Doom and gloom is the theme of this story. Sadly what started out really good with the first as t few books has led to this. If your a massive fan I would recommend listening to this book but this is the last one for me. Good effort but not for me any more

Not bad but frustraging

This book suffers from the same problems as the one before it. It is still an enjoyable read, but now about 50% of the book is either from other's point of view, or a flashback from the MC's past life. I will definitely read this series until the end. However, I am no longer furiously devouring it page by page like I did before. I find myself skimming the chapters on side characters and random enemies. There were 3 or 4 full chapters told from an enemy's point of view that ended up being pointless. I won't go into why, as that would be a spoiler.

This series is going downhill.

To much back and forth between past and present. To many point of views. should keep it to Art and Tes. I can only hope this changes in future books.

Summed up in one word...Meh

I've enjoyed the series so far. This book is just so boring. I had 3 hours left and just couldn't finish it. Nothing really new gets introduced and a lot of it feels like filler content. The characters don't really evolve in this book. The overall feeling is doom and gloom. Maybe something really interesting gets added in the end, but I just cannot get myself to finish it.

Love the series, but this was kinda a filler book.

So, I've obviously read quite a few books in this series which should exemplify that I enjoy the series, in fact, I like it quite a bit! Yet, this entry felt like a filler book. It didn't really advance the overall plot of characters very much at all in it's full 15 hours. It kinda felt like the whole book could have been condensed down into the intro two or three hours of another book, a better book.

It made me feel like the whole story is running out of steam. I hope the 8th book doesn't just try to pad things out. I want a nice tidy wrap up to the big epic I have been enjoying. It would be terrible to have it watered down and thinned out just to keep the franchise going.

Disappointing.

I don't think I'll be continuing on with this series. It was good, for a while but no longer.

Greedy Writing

The author has done an annoying job of hacking up the story and stretching it out for more books. You can/have to skip over a ton of filler that literally does nothing to change how much you know about the story or characters.

a little frustrating

continuously somebody's going to sacrifice themselves but no then that person sacrifices themselves for the other persons, or the character is going to rescue someone or you can't do it but I can. just getting old at this point.

Molding the protagonist into hot garbage.

Gray is like that jack of all trades and master of none. His inadequacy coupled with crazed selflessness do more harm to the people he loves than good. It’s infuriating because this seems to be how it is going to be for the next book. It’s been like this for so long I lost count of how many books Gray has been a hot pile of garbage in. Yes, many look up to him. But it’s like standing around a burning trash can in the cold of winter, warming yourself but enduring the stinky fumes.

Lots of action!

This book has lots of action but the MC's development let me down. This is his second life and yet he still repeats the same emotional mistakes. Why is it he loses every battle but they let him live every time? Still a good read and I enjoyed it.

A good fantasy

The story continues still with great characters and a good sense of scope.

The beginning after the end is a good example of how to do the "new in another world" story right. Where other stories often limits them selva to power fantasy, this actually has characters, world and dilemma to explore.

for lovers of fantasy: you will not be disappointed by reading this story from the beginning.

amazing

No trouble binging this at all.
The cliff hanger at the end is a bit unfair by the author tho...

Some people disliked the chapters written from other characters viewpoint but imo it made the world building much stronger.
Strongest book in the series imo.
