Publisher's Summary

For all that Jason knows, life is amazing. But he's about to learn that all his new power, wealth, and influence comes at a price.

Riding high on success, he and his team are looking to the future, preparing themselves for the challenges to come. Nothing, however, could have prepared him for the lessons his enemies have to teach. When magic is involved, the stakes can be even greater than life and death. 

While Jason’s personal enemies make plans, the greater foes plaguing his new home have been pushed to the brink. With one powerful card left to play, they are on a collision course with Jason and his team. With no one to help and more than their lives on the line, Jason and his companions must fight with more monsters than ever in the race to grow stronger. With an invincible enemy already anticipating them, they will learn that sometimes winning the battle is more important than surviving it.

Why say it once when you can say it ten times?

I've been keeping with this series on the promise of that first book. I enjoy the MC and his philosophy and the standard "gotta level up!" storyline is fine. What is really starting to grind my gears about this series is the repitition. The repitition is what bothers me. I really don't like the repitition. You know what I don't like? Repitition.

After having read that you are starting to get a clue of what this series is becoming. There's at least six hours in this audiobook that doesn't need to be there because its either A. Repeating something we already know. or B. Going through the motions of a character interaction that was already established. Example: (I don't like you because you don't drink coffee! *one chapter later* I still don't like you because you don't drink coffee!

This may just be how this author writes. I don't know. But there's enough good here that I hope he improves or at least gets a good editor.

This story took an unfortunate turn

So I've been waiting with bated breath for this, especially given how I first thought it was releasing on the 9th July.. darn you American date format! But after having just finished it, I have to say I'm disappointed and probably wont be following the story any further.

1) The book largely abandons its local and political tone in favour of an action tone, ie: this book is the most title-appropriate out of the series. It's just hours and hours and hours of him and his team fighting stuff.

2) Speaking of the fighting: the magic system favours the main characters. You know how, in the first book, one of Jason's ability's evolves in a critical moment? Expect a lot more of that in this book.

3) The astral beings are just another layer of turtles and honestly I wouldn't be surprised if another layer is introduced later on.

4) Speaking of which, the stakes are raised so high it's hard to care: the astral space subplot in the first book balloons into Jason literally being The Chosen One to save the parallel universes from The Builder.

5) There are multiple occasions where months go by in just a sentence.

6) There's three hours of epilogue and most of it is not particularly interesting.

7) Someone left a review on book two that everyone is becoming like Jason, and while someone refuted that in their review, I have to say that it's even more true in this book.

Overall, it's not an awful listen, but it's lacking a lot of charm from the first book and you'll probably glaze over a lot of what's going on, go back and realised you didn't actually anything interesting or important.

What’s With That Ending

I never thought I would find something worse than a cliffhanger but 8 epilogues and a cliffhanger WhAT THE HELL they where fillers and not bad but left bad taste after a decent book like the book never payed off at least cliffhanger give you something

As Jason would say…BOOOOO

What kind of audio book did I just listen to??? I LOVED the first book. It was a very fun main character and had its own original sarcastic twist but this 3rd book was just ROUGH.

EVERY SINGLE FIGHT had about 3 minutes of action and 35 minutes of explaining EVERY ability and what they do, what rank it is, how it stacks, TERRIBLE. I used my skip button for probably half the book and zoned out on other just because the actual meat of the storyline was few and far between.

The readers miss the political and sarcastic side of Jason. Not a “magical power attack theory 101”

Not even going to listen to the 3 HOURS of epilogues he wrote because I feel like I’ve already been ripped off of the storyline of Jason, I’m not going to listen to his teams storyline either

Poor ending.

I have really enjoyed the series but the last few hours of this book we're a real disappointment for me. It was just a lot of confusing nonsense with no satisfaction in it at all. It was more like the first few chapters of a different series and really took away from the experience for me.

Really Needs Fundamental Editing

This book continues a slight downward trend of the previous entries.

If you're reading this one, you already know that the book is formed from serials. The timeline of the serials is SIGNIFICANTLY further along from a brief glance at the website they're posted on.

This is one of those books where you could remove a quarter or a third of the word-count and it wouldn't effectively change the outcome. I feel for the author **minor spoilers** for focusing on six different characters with twenty abilities each and extra bonus abilities on top that they feel they have to describe. They've written themselves into a corner when it comes to concise writing. That said, I don't need you to explain the exact text of the ability multiple times. It's probably less grating in book form rather than hearing the narration of the same thing, sometimes in back to back chapters, several times.

Along those lines, the training montage section of this book was easily a half of its length. Way too long, way too much focus on encounters that, at the end of the day, don't matter.

That said, I enjoyed the book. These problems won't stop me from picking up the next one (presumably releasing in December), but I would like to see some more time spent editing and converting from the serial format. If you're reading this, one chapter a week, at approximately the rate it was released or similar, I'm not sure I'd have the problems with it I've mentioned here.

**Major Spoilers**

The epilogue chapters are horrible in terms of story flow. I'm sorry, EIGHT epilogue chapters is way too much. I had to force myself to finish the book. A lot of what happened there could have happened off screen. I enjoyed the chapter with Jason's sister, the portion on Thadwick's fate, and the sections in the inter dimensional city, Everything else could have been saved for the beginning of the next book or just left to the reader's imagination/shown in their actions later on. It really was a slog.

So entirely dissapointed.

This book flops hard. fails on every level for me. everything that I loved about the first 2 dies. everything that I was glad the first 2 weren't, the third became. inflated Stat listing. prolly 6-7 hours of stats. (or at least it feels that way) This book is a death to adventure. Why do most authors in this genre pull an aleron kong?!?!?! start a great story, then just start churning out caca? I honestly can't even begin to explain how let down I am.

skip if you want looting and rewards

for $42 I would have figured the author would've grown since the first two books, but got rid of the quest system which is fine, but still does no looting or any rewards from the adventures guild...

Non-gamers response

Hi, I am a 60 year old woman who has never played a computer game more complicated than Frogger or Tetris. And never written a review in my life. But this deserves my time.

I bought book 1 to help me sleep. A story I would have zero interest in that would just be noise in the background to shut my own restless brain down.
So imagine my surprise when I was sleeping less because I needed to hear what would happen to these amazing characters. And I found myself listening to the books more than once which I have never done before with any book read or listened to.

As a psychoanalyst I am impressed by how realistically the characters behave and talk, over 3 extensive books. I’m guessing you have a group of writers and that means the characters have individual voices very discernible from each other.

The worlds created are mesmerising, the bad guys eminently believable and I really feel I want to hear more about their journey.
With any book/film as a reader/listener/viewer I am always waiting to be disappointed by sequels that just cannot reach the excitement engendered by the original, and with the possibility of 4, 20+ hour tomes being released in one year how could this not happen. That is not the case here, each book is as exciting and thrilling as the last and the epilogue of book 3 is just a fantastic teaser for further story arcs that sound equally engaging.

I am really looking forward to Book 4. Awesome job guys - keep them coming.

What is Neil’s accent

What an epic story- I haven’t had so much fun with a book in a while- I loved how long the book was and the 9 chapters epilogue was an interesting interpretation of the end …felt like that little clip you see after the main credits on a marvel movie. Book 4 will be epic. The narrator is absolutely phenomenal- such amazing accents and I knew who was talking most times . I actually wrote this review for the exceptional voice talent-I hope to hear Heath in more books

meh.

big step down narratively speaking. there's an awful lot of the author telling us how things are and not a lot of showing. 1/4 of the book is a recitation of ability description, 1/2 is telling us how clever Jason is generally or how well the fights are going, but there's not nearly enough of Jason being clever or of plot actually happening.

Great like. Wow.

READ IT. I urge you. I know this is just one review in a sea but honestely. This is a great new part. My favourte out of the 3. The end is amazing. Has a skow start and the performance isnt a 5/5 more like a 4/5 cause it can here and there be a bit odd. Like he starten reading and stopped to then return to the task. But the overal quality of the characters and even emotion is so good. You know who is who purely from the way he talks without doing werd accent.

Better and better

Just when I thought that the series may stagnate a bit, Jason gets kidnapped and my what a kidnapping it was. This book has been unbelievable, from Rufus almost dieing, to Jason being kidnapped, to the training, to the team going back to the reapers astral space (but is it really the reapers astral space?), to them facing the builder, oh and Jason has a new power which is game changing in their fight against the builder. you'll just have to listen to the book to find out what.
Back to the storyline- this book was out of this works in terms of humour, adventure, surprises, and towards the end a lot of sadness even more than Farah's.
what I really liked about the end of this book was the epilogues. whilst the timing of them was extremely annoying considering what happened immediately before they started. they finally gave us a backstory and context to this world and situation Jason has been thrown into without really knowing how or why.
I'm really looking forward to book 4, which has started pretty damn good.

Another exciting book in a series I just can't wait to read more of. Literally worked with only 2 hours of sleep under my belt because I couldn't stop listening. The story hooked me in and I couldn't get enough. Cheers

Best ‘Isekai’ style book I’ve read

The third book in the series, if you have come this far you know you have found a winner.
Between books, nothing is able to compare to the fresh characters and plot.
The way the story is able to handle such a mix of topics and concepts whilst not walking the line, but having a foot heavily in both humour and seriousness.
One of the books/series you’ll be ‘chasing the high’ for… the measuring stick series.

Not sure if worse or over it

Description on character abilities gets really annoying in this book. I would constantly skip ahead as soon as I heard it. Also doesn’t leave great cliffhanger making me want to get to the next book. Like 1-2. Still enjoying it however Jason is getting preachy.

was okay

was a good book buy not as good as the first few books. attention was not grabbed by this book as much as the others.
