Publisher's Summary

The VIs' revolt succeeded.

The digital beings took over the game world and ejected millions of players while keeping a few thousand trapped inside as their prisoners.

In the real world, Oren Berman is recovering from the mental trauma of being trapped, tortured, and abruptly ejected. But the company has come to him, hat in hand, asking him to reenter the game world. With the entire NPC population arrayed against the trapped players, Oren and his clan of monsters might be their only hope.

They ruined a perfectly good lit RPG

The first three books get a 10 out of 10 for me. I was loving the story, the world, and the characters. All the progress of becoming the most powerful clan in the game was for nothing. The competition aspect of becoming the most powerful player in the game is gone. Its almost like the writer started a new story, Im not even interested in finishing the series now!!!!

Weakest in the series this far.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my time with the book. But that is mostly due to it being the 4th in the series. compared to previous titles there is a lot of lazy writing. The main character will state something then a side character will echo those exact words. Adjectives are often reused making the entire book feel very repetitive.

Just another fight...

The book only really focused on a weird emotional relation that has to be told 200 times as well as fight scenes.

Great book!

Great book as always kept me wanting more the whole time. I love how the author manages to get you hooked on every character they bring in.

SPOILER

One complaint would prob have to be this book really didn't go anywhere pretty much spent the book getting back into the game and building back up the village. I do feel the book is building up for something great but for now more waiting..

R green overlords do it again

The payoff is a little on the slow side but when he gets there it gets there this is a good arching book getting us ready for the next and last in the series of this arch And it does an amazing job of showing us the time dilation and how it affects the players and a monster's how it affects the whole civilization when the leaders are missing and there there is a A negative situation inside the video game both for the gain and the MP c's

From mediocre to moronic.

Should have just ended the series with the last book. The author clearly has no idea how to continue the plot organically so he just decided to throw in a Mary Sue to force things along. I'll be refunding this one and won't be listening to this author again.

What is the story?

overall the action was great. The pacing was slowed at times considerably with existential musings. Which if was the main focus could be compelling (a la the Matrix). But it is not the focus and bogs down the story. Hopefully this improves in later books.

New Direction Works

New direction works and is worth the read. Yes is a natural continuation like a new chapter of the series.

Gold standard LitRPG

I listen to alot of LitRPG audibooks, it would be 90% of what I listen to these days and its getting harder and harder to discover new gems. Life Reset had tough competition when I started it going against the Shaman series and The land but its hands down my favourite series now (The Land : Monsters knocked the series out of the running for the time being!)

This is another excellent instalment on the series which gives us a greater view of the world and sates the appetite of "what would Oren do with more time and resources" that book 3 left us with. The book flew by and I was horrified to learn I had finished the book in just a few days driving but it was hooked the whole time.

The voice acting is simply astounding, the level of music and sound effects (plus great atmospheric audio distortion etc) really draws you in to the story.

A big BIG plus for this book and the series as a whole is there is just enough stat descriptions, just enough to keep you interested and make you daydream about how you would spend the XP etc. This is a really hard balance as you have books with not nearly enough vs books that literally just fill their pages with stat screens to the point you start wondering were they struggling to hit their word count (Again... sorry The Land : Monsters). It also manages to avoid some of the cringe we have to endure in some LitRPGs with the NPC relationships, sure they are in there but its not uncomfortable slash fic as it is in so many others

There are elements of others series creeping in on this book, i would describe them as tributes or nods more than copying but some of the magic mechanics and the eventual plots etc definitely echos with some other well known LitRPGs series out there

Overall a great read and another fantastic addition to the series.

- Great Narration
- Great Stat/XP/World Build balance and interest
- Believable character interactions
- Low Cringe Factor
- Teases the larger world

Just an honest review

So... Been really curious as what to expect after book 3, and u know what, I wasn't disappointed!
The book kept me entertained and curious as what will happen next not to mention the funny companion that I was hoping to still be there.
Never wrote a review before but just hoping that author will read this wanted to ask him to keep up the great work he's been doing and will be looking forward for upcoming books!
Also really love the narrator and all the sound effects included in it. Great job!

Best book out of the series

This is a marked improvement compared to the previous book (3), it answers some questions raised regarding the previous ending. It progressed into a well rounded and interesting story.

This book is by far the most funny and is filled with puns and jokes to get you going. Also the character progression after the "big ordeal" shows great growth mentally.

Overall this is a great addition and I look forward to more books.

Finally the audio production, sound effects and narrators did a fabulous job!
