Publisher's Summary

Real heroes power level!

Sam and his team might be the fastest heroes to get licensed in history, but that doesn't mean they can rest on their laurels. A rash of villain attacks have sparked across the world, and people are disappearing in the aftermath, and the authorities are lost. It's up to Sam to rely on his video game Aspect to follow the quest lines, gain the levels he needs, and track the waypoints until he can uncover the truth behind the assaults.

But even that can't prepare him and his team for what they discover at the final marker.

Warning: This audiobook contains beautiful women, steamy sex, incredible super powers, city-busting laser beams, bizarre experiments, crazy power leveling, and the ability to become the strongest person the Universe has ever seen. That’s right, we said Universe.

No thank you.

Worst book ever. I'm glad I listened to it so I can just stick a pencil in my ear drums instead of having read it and needing to gouge my eyes out.

MC written terribly

I really enjoyed the first 3 books. This one is written terribly compared to the others.
1. Early on there are plot inconsistencies between this and the last book. Events that happened in the last battle in book 3 have been clearly changed by the author in this one.
2. The MC is given completely overpowered abilities and stats that would make him a god compared to anyone, yet he performs as an average character and rarely used all his ablities. In a previous book he tore a metal door off it's hinges with 200 strength. With now over 500 he could easily decimate anything. His time slowing ability combined with his strength and speed would allow him to instantly end any fight however he wanted.

It's clear the author won't make him overpowered in fights cause he wouldn't be able to tell the story as easily. He should have just not made him as strong if he wanted drawn out/or interesting fights. Instead the MC is just appears to be ignorant of how to use his skills and stats properly.

I unfortunately couldn't even finish the book because of how frustrating the fights and decision making was going.

My First Listen Assessment (lite spoilers)

I shall try to avoid any biases one might possess if they are a fan of Simon Archer.

Plot Armor trope was handled very well, when compared to the previous book, Expansion Pack.

The title Power Leveling wasn’t relevant to this book, I expected the final fight to be the biggest quest reward MC would acquire, but The Fall of Rome Quest remains the largest in previous book. I at least expected a Legendary weapon fragment as a quest reward, for defeating an Omega-level (beyond S rank) threat. MC ending level was only 52.

Fight mechanics felt really solid! I felt like I had a strong grasp of everything going on, but the final fight felt like it should have included at least a little more. However, I suspect an editor was involved in cutting it down, although not by much.

Romance scenes were super hot! There was one scene that had me shouting DAMN BOI!!! Out my car window while driving. Simon Archer does each very well, with a focus on the MC’s perspective, and not the other characters when the cuddle pile grows larger! Those senes would just take too long to describe. Satisfying the harem trope with the addition of Heather and Viper, albeit lightly.

Blood Magic: the first use of this skill was in expansion pack, but only used to stop someone’s movement, but this book expanded upon the power, which I greatly appreciated the clarification, although it felt super broken, because the body control time limit was subjected to plot armor trope. Basically, as last long as it was necessary for the plot to advance.
The video game-like controls the MC experienced was awesome.

Overall, despite my grumbling I loved this book and the building of plot overtime, which didn’t feel rushed, but you could feel their urgency and anxiousness throughout; even for the romance scenes🙃

I strongly recommend you start the Forger of Worlds series if you haven’t, because Simon Archer has big works coming soon! Hero team up!!!!!!!!!!

Soooooo

Alright, we've got a couple problems here. The main problem is that the mc vastly underutilizes his blood magic. Literally 99% of boss fights could be handled in a instant with no muss or fuss. Second, he literally could've solved everyone's problems and saved lives by taking out the head villain when he instead made a escape, when doing so wouldn't have kept them from getting away.
