Publisher's Summary

Loose strings tied. New Empires established. A knock-down drag-out victory.

Artorian welcomes home old friends, glad for their company. Having finally returned Cal to the seat of his sanctuary, he must cast aside other whims and assume the mantle of Administrator, continuing the diplomacy that came with the creation of Accords. Regardless of agreements, some diplomacy must always be spoken with fists. To prepare for the second coming of Eternium, Cal’s space must stand firm, resolute, and without danger...even if Artorian must contend with a city of tears to attain that result.

Caltopia is blooming with new growth, possibilities, and fresh chances. Unfortunately, some old weeds have dug their roots deep and require plucking so the population might thrive. For many who discover the great trials to come, the new ways of standing on their own two feet are to their liking.... 

But there are some who will never willingly stop waving the flag of what once was.

How and why, people?

These books are amazing, and I'm sure this one will be too. The book isn't even out yet and people are giving it bad reviews because the narrator isn't Travis. He likely had to be switched out for any of 1000 reasons that are valid after years of narrating these books.
If you are upset about the change, please be fair to the book and the new voice. Don't give it 1 star because you don't want the change (ironically, a running theme in these books), please be fair and rate the book on the story and the actual performance. Giving the book a one star changes nothing, hurts the author's livelihood, and is a very good way to seem unreasonable.

Don't know who is who.

Hard to continue series without the original Narrator or one that can do multiple roles, but going to keep going with the series even if it hard to to make out who is who.

Narrator change

Narrator change in the middle of a series is no good. especially 10 books in. its almost a story killer for me. the book is good though

knocked out of the park!

Dennis has delivered an excellent installment of grandpa's adventures once again, and John Pirhalla has once more delivered an excellent narration thereof! Personally, I'm pretty satisfied with the narrator change and think the voices are now MORE better!

offsetting spammers

Audio book hasn't even released yet but there are already people leaving 1, 2, and 3 star reviews. It's artorian's archives even if it isn't perfect it will be good regardless of who is narrating it.

Back into the swing of things

Overall I enjoyed this book in the series more than I would care to admit. This book brought back the essence of artorian which I felt was sorely missing and am glad it has finally come to this point. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.

I’m a huge fan of this series

It’s hard to rate these books individually because it is such a large series in a interconnected universe, that being said all these connections to so many other books really make it easy to love this series.

Yet Another Excellent Book In The Series

PUN-ishment is never too far in Caltopia, especially when Artorian is there to administer some tough love! well-written and narrated, this is another win for Mr. Vanderkerken

Why did I read this far

I don't know how I got this far. Several books ago I started asking why I was reading these anymore. It's not just that nothing happens, it's that the meandering narrative feels entirely without point. I think I'm done

A book just to have a book

The story hasn’t really progressed in about 2 or 3 books and this one is no different. Sections of the book are just there the jam in more cheesy jokes that pull you out of the story. as someone who loved the beginning of this series I am disappointed with where is has went I can only gone that this new arc will bring some freshness to this stale story.

Growing on me, but...

The new narrator was less jarring that he was last book which felt like a bait and switch. Great continuation and ends on a good note with things moving forward in a solid direction.

I am getting real sick of this lowering MC's power levels to make fights seem more challenging while also having MC not improve any further. I really hope this is solved in the next book considering how this one ended.

Overall I was happy to read this and on a minor note I was also happy this was a bit lighter on the memes which in book 11 were slightly immersion ruining.
