Publisher's Summary

The brothers are united, but storm clouds gather on the horizon. War has come to Dravith.

The Dark Legion have been beaten back, and for the first time, the brothers are allied against the savagery that the UnderVerse has thrown at them, but the storm clouds of war are gathering, and not everyone will see the sun rise again. 

Jax has one chance to keep his people safe from the storm and the war that's building on the horizon, but it'll take balls of steel, brains of mince—and he's really going to need to be lucky as hell to pull this one off...

The Legion rises along with their Scion, buoyed aloft on waves of hope, but not all are as dedicated as they may seem, and a tiny pinprick can be all that makes the difference, when it's made at just the wrong time...

Just give it a listen, you will never regret it...

If you like Litrpg, this is literally the best series to listen too. So much good in it, that my words will never fulfill my opinion properly. And thank you Wayne ( Jax )Mitchell for bringing it to life.

A sweeping tale that’s masterful.

Every book keeps getting better. The narrator is awesome and does a phenomenal job and the author just rocks for a fun filled adventure. I eagerly await his next book. 5 stars doesn’t do it justice.

Now the wait

Unfortunately I have to wait for the next in the series. But it’s going to be so worth it.

Jez Does it again!

This man is seemingly incapable of real of producing average books. Once again Jez has released top tier work to continue a top tier series and I can only hope it never ends!!

Talk about a fumble at the 1 yard line.

Without spoiling anything, loved the book but the last few minutes of the epilog... blah! How boring! It's the kind of trope where you roll your eyes so hard they actually start to hurt.

I literally paused before and said "Oh shit X is going to happen..." now normally if i can predict what will happen in a book its kinda fun, it means i picked up on the foreshadowing or something. but this was the opposite. still liked the book just a sour note to end on. I'll still be reading the next one.

Despise narrator, love storyline

Wayne Mitchell's characters vary from slurring idiot to incoherent accent. The drunken slurring is by far the most numerous choice for a voice. It's almost impressive that he gets away with doing it continuously.

I seriously like 90% of the story, though.

great book!

Excited for what's to come. lots of stuff happens and while I was so so on the ending all the possibilities opening up in this book made up for it.

Best one yet so far

So after 6 books the narration flows smoothly as our gruff emperor to be fights to bring back the Empire and the enemies just seem to be everywhere. With some touching moments, action, comedy, lavisousness and of course righteousness on our MCs side this is as good as LitRPG gets ,and I rate this up there with VGO.
Well enjoyed and more so missed already as there is a big gap before we get more from the Underverse.

Wow!

Seriously good ending to the first set of books! Thanks for the great story Jez looking forward to more so keep up the good work. 👍

To anyone that’s interested the MC’s accent is initially jarring but it truly adds to the story and makes him a very unique twist to the average hero type, if you haven’t yet don’t hesitate to pick up this series you will love it.
