Publisher's Summary

The Dwarves want to fight. They’re ordered to escape. Turtling up is the best of both worlds.

Joe and humanity as a whole messed up pretty badly, managing to get some of the most important people from both the Elven and Dwarven races killed. Now the war is escalating to unprecedented levels, and only one side needs to worry about being slain. With the attackers knowing they can get right back up after dying, they are throwing themselves against their centuries-long foe without caring for the consequences.

As the death toll rises, there’s still hope for Joe and the people that he chose to align himself with. His tiny Hamlet is hidden away from the Elves, so the Ritualist gets a quest to escort the core of the Dwarven Oligarchy to safety: their History, and those that lived it. If he can manage to save even a few as the Dwarven Oligarchy begins to Implode, the race might one day have a chance to regain their former glory.

There’s only one major issue with convincing the war-loving Dwarves to escape the final battle and hide away: they’re war-loving Dwarves.

Liked all of this series

Excellent job on the various characters voices. I especially enjoyed the bloopers at the end of the last couple of books. Good job.👍🍻

Onwards and upwards

Falling off the series at some point is fair, especially after this many books. I am not one of these people however. I look forward to the next one as Jo's story continues to unfold.

good storyline but disappointed spoilers maybe.

this might be Spoilers Alert maybe......

well like story to extent, I mean why us reads remember the skills and all things Joe's has and his abilities but some hows I mean his intelligence is highest attribute but always forgets them like guildhall can act Plains transport, shrines help he has ability to build a whole city in seconds and able make defence and offence can place around towers and walls with the Predator effect but still doesn't do it or even those towers with cannons since he know how stabilize mana issue. why is Joe the MC like 5 steps behind everyone else on skills and stat's. know what happen at the end good plot twist and all but you know danelia and him have special Bond and connection with eaxh other and feelings and what the 3rd princess being high priestess and all. Now he suppose get that fking legendary weapon but nooo he didn't wtf.. why does everyone else gets better gear and weapons but not him. on that what about the cat race forget the name nothing helpful there.. like book 1 becuaee Joe was new and it was funny and understandable but kept it going through out his story line. wtf his bald and no hair because he stop wolfman ritual and took over teleport or altar hoe stupid. Joe minds races all over places trying to do many things and gets distracted on the topics and task at hand. it's shame how could made good storylines and characters in which he forgets to mention to shit book 1 is goof book 2 is addon for Jason's, book 3 and 4 in Midgaurd saga was not bad but outcome is shit.. really attack them becuase of there greenhouse , made sound like there was no food in other areas or npcs not doing there jobs , and grape really was in the black arena so why take so long for that family be punished from royals since they supply the grapes for it. they never went and massacre others they only defended there town amd camp. ending of that was bullshit and rubbish disappointed just like this ending. not enough explanation with high priestess and royals of Midgaurd and how they are doing, nothing at all and why joe never got his hair back.. have him say nuu like being bald and shit.. so stupid.. I feel Joe is to stupid as MC and let down.

Tone down the silly voices.

Series continues to be pretty mid, but entertaining enough to continue. Though the way Luke Daniels narrates it to make the characters seem even more exaggerated than they already are has gone from amusing, through tolerable, and into immersion-breaking.

Most boring entry to the series so far

The author really dropped the ball on this one. Absolute struggle to get through with some seriously bland travel parts to this book. It’s a good thing teleportation exists in this world because the author should make as much use of it as possible to avoid writing more of that crap.

The lack of actually achieving anything real is a real bummer. The magic of the first world with just humanity is gone. Before it was about exploring the system and being creative to achieve impressive feats.

In the last couple books the author has tried his hand at drama, and to be honest, it falls flat. The earlier books seemed to know what they were and focused on the writer’s talents rather than the areas where he’s weak. Now he’s moved focus from what he’s good at to a focus on what he’s not.

Also, his need to just discard characters after every few books is pretty lame. He gives them a bit of a wink and a nod but it’s really just him and Jackson, maybe you could count Daniela?

If the next book has another dry section like this one had, I will not be continuing.
