Publisher's Summary

King Alexander and his guildmates have expanded Elysia into a formidable kingdom. Their ongoing battle against the Dark One and the drow wizards is escalating. Alexander works to bring together the Elves, Dwarves, and Human Kingdoms to establish the alliance proposed by the Dragon King. But the dark magic of the drow has infiltrated even the highest offices, blocking his efforts.

War comes once again to the gates of the keep, and Alexander must find a way to defend his citizens before he can go on the offensive and take the fight to the stronghold of his enemies. All of Io, citizens and players alike, are pulled into war as the forces of darkness strive to destroy or enslave every surface city.

Olympus is still under siege, and the threat intensifies as doctors determine it's necessary to wake Jules from her months-long slumber. Jules and Alexander prepare to meet face to face for the first time, with a little help from their friends.

Join the Greystone Guild for this epic conclusion of a LitRPG tale of magic, monsters, wizards, and dragons.

More cohesive and better performance/sound effect.

Felt a bit rushed at the end, but this one was the best one in my opinion.

Lame ending to a good series, at lest I think it’s the end.

Story was dragged out then just ended. Basically lots of overpowered players get everything, lots of dragons pop up to add to the over poweredness then bad guy meets his end in a cheesy way. Story ends. Nothing about what happens to any characters.

SBT did a good job on this book. They finally got a hang of that volume knob so the sound effects don’t drown out the narrators. A few spot where a bit strange or lacking. The sound effects where just weak and didn’t quite match what was going on. Some places could of used richer effects like they’ve done before.

Excellent story and conclusion!

This entire series has really been excellent, both with the writing and the Sound Booth actors!

I won't spoil anything and will just say that I enjoyed this book more than the last. While there are still dark moments, there is healing as well and even though there will still be challenges for the characters, it seems they will be better able to face them going forward.

The series wrapped up well, though I would be interested in a follow up book. :-D It could even be a new story arc about helping people with the immersion pods and the challenges that might entail.

Also, Go Rufus! He could have his own story. I mean, he's Fitz's familiar and has probably seen a lot of crazy things.

good but ended abruptly

when it ended I was kinda feeling there should have been just a minute or two more to wrap up some player relationships. otherwise awesome

Holy shit, Fitz!

The epic conclusion has arrived! So, one of my favorite litRPGs comes to a close. I love this story, it brings a smile to my face so many times while listening. The characters, the world-building, everything was excellent. The performance by Soundbooth Theatre was extraordinary. I must agree with others that the ending was rushed and quite anticlimactic. There are also many loose ends and questions left unanswered. All this time I never knew Fitz’s true background. I wondered if I had missed something all along or if this was a big reveal? What of the Dragon Empire, did they not have a battle as well? Ky and Lea, the baby dragons, Fibble and his bonded dragon, the Mithril worms, and the Guardian. There certainly seems to be enough material for another volume or the beginning of a new series. I look forward to seeing more from Dave Willmarth.

A great series

An awesome series, I highly recommend it. Maybe it was just me, but I feel there was a huge climax with Matt and The Dark One, and all of a sudden Matt is dead...and The End. The ending could have been better....the series is great and I highly recommend it.

Homerun!

I was a little hesitant to listen to this series, as I'm enjoying apocalyptic LITRPG novels, such as Dave Willmarth's Shadow Sun books. I've done the VR/Pod books before and didn't think I'd want to listen to any for a while.

Having nothing that tempted Menon my Wish List, I checked other works by authors and narrators that I liked. Dave had used Jeff Hays on the Shadow Sun series and they crossed again in this series. I think Jeff is one of the best out there and is on par with Nick Podehl ... seemed like a worthy candidate, do I took a chance on the first book.

Five books and seven days later, I've just enjoyed a fabulous series - one that I don't want to be over. Jeff Hayes is once again superb ... and where the hell did Laurie Catherine Winkel come from? She's first class!! This combination is stronger than RC Bray and Julie Whelan.

I've got 6 favourite series ... and Dave Willmarth has two of them. The Greystone Chronicles are not to be missed!

A Great Book and A Great Series!

This was an Epic book and an Epic ending to a Fantastic Series! The characters are wonderful, they grow and mature through out the books. The narration is excellent and certainly enhances an excellent story. Thank You all for a marvelous experience, I’m sure I will return to this series often!

You can tell the author just didnt care

you can very quickly tell the author was in a rush. I've seen him say he was well good and tired and ready to end the greystone series. and you can tell that immensely in this last entry. everything felt rushed. I'd guess maybe he originally planned a 6th book?

he simply went through the paces quickly tying off/finishing some plot elements, leaving many unanswered and progressing the story. a huge numbers of "can of worms". I mean since when was Fitz the original dragon? Where did that come from? The ending was total trash.

I appreciate the continuation of the story and if it wasnt for that. this would be rated 2 stars.

dave is a very good author and most of his other work is great. top notch. but this felt lazy and an uncaring end to the series.

Yet another great book

Another great installment of the greystone chronicles, only problem I had was how Fitzs being a dragon was just brushed over. Unless I missed it he never told Alexander or the others yet they all acted like they already new, apart from that I loved the story.

5 stars sound booth theatre has done it again bringing Dave Willmarth story to life. Fibble Rules gnomes can shut up for once.
