I love the story and look forward to the next book

I have to say taht this one has thrown me. I have never been so emotionally thrown as I had near the end of this book. I don't know how I feel about the direction of the book but I hope that the new direction will make it better.

An unexpected disappointment

I came into this with high hopes. I LOVED the first two books, and was fully expecting to love this one too. Boy was I mistaken. Before anything else I should mention that there is one very distinct thing that can make me abandon a book, no matter how far I get into. That something is, character reset. Or in other terms, making an otherwise powerful, fun, and entertaining character helpless. Be it mind control, power nullification, coincidences that put an otherwise intelligent person in a bad situation he can't escape.

It started off so well, then did away with Cranny, and replaced him with a generic red shirt. Big mistake in my opinion, but it's not the end of the world. What really did it was a simple thing. In one move, ONE, all his abilities are gone, his sanctuary is practically gone, religated to being a Deus Ex Machina later in the story. Because, obviously it'll come back when he needs it most. Now he's kidnapped, with no powers, and on artificial deadline. It's like playing f£cking Zelda again. Oh you got all this cool, interesting, and fun stuff in the last game? Better get rid of all the junk so you can find different junk. It's a stupid plot device. The character has gotten so powerful that he literally needs to be stripped of all his powers so the plot can progress. It would be one thing if it was an actual fight, where he's up against a tough enemy but is untimely defeated and captured. That's something I can respect, and then look forward to a rematch. But no, the whole thing took maybe 2 minutes.

I honestly doubt I'll get much farther in the book. I've given up on series's bigger and better than this for resorting to the same thing.

And judging by the other reviews that have cropped up, I'm not alone either.

good story

I think this has been well done. However I find it tedious at times to constantly listen to the character apologize to his wives.

My least favorite of the three books right now.

A good third of this book is just him being tortured and cruelly treated. Plus by the end of this book you feel like the author went back and re-wrote what they intended for the storyline to be. What was presented to be extremely rare in the second book becomes commonplace in this one. It’s like when the author decided to write this book they decided to go back and redo what was known history. It just leaves a bad taste in your mouth especially with a series that you like. I am still undecided whether I would read a fourth book if it came out this one just ruined the series for me.

Least favorite of the 3 books

This book is tough and infuriating to get through, feels more like it should be volume 2.5 than 3.

Aside from Danny, all of the other established characters are barely in this book.

There is no relationship or character development.

This story only exists to
•Exposition, exposition, exposition.
•Briefly introduce the Drow, Dwarves and Beastmen.
•Make Danny far more powerful.
•Make everyone older.
•Talk about a possible external threat not yet introduced.

I hope the next book is better.

Better than expected

After reading a number of disappointed reviews, ultimately I'm glad I made it through to this book. The payoff at the end was pretty solid and was worth the sometimes odd pacing of the story. Even from the first book, the biggest two issues were 1) The main character frequently behaves in ways that seem slight off from what you might expect based on his personality and 2) it felt a bit like the author couldn't quite decide what genre he was writing in.

Overall, the writing and character building was well above average, especially for anything touching the LitRPG genre. This is what made the inconsistencies mentioned above sometimes cause the story to dip into the uncanny valley.

For what it's worth, I was unreasonably exciting to read the "Flight of the Navigator" reference.

didn't care for this one

I get there's a new chapter so to speak this book was trying to accomplish, I personally didn't like the way it went about it. When it's all said and done, it's still a good book

tries to do too much

An epic fantasy fantasy filled with... Spaceships and Star trek characters? First one book was fine. second and third books just turned out disappointing.
