After the turmoil in the Arena, Gunnar retreats from Highcastle and attempts to maintain a low profile while the heat regarding Reborns subsides. Avoiding the human cities, he sets out to unexplored lands with guild mates and a potential new recruit. But when his Great Beast goes missing, a simple quest turns into a troubling chain of events that spawns several unanswered questions. Why is Sora unresponsive? And why are dragons threatening the inhabitants of Eden's Gate?

Better than the last book but I’m over the romance aspect and the constant bleeding message once is enough !!!!! There needs to be more character development either be a badass or a bitch not this back and fourth

When Gunnar learns the king of Highcastle will grant an audience to anyone who wins an arena championship, he decides to enter the competition as a gladiator. If he can earn a meeting with the ailing king and persuade him to stop Dryden before his dragon flies, he can save Edgewood and countless lives. He'll also get his name posted in every arena, which could lead Rachel one step closer to finding him. Does Gunnar have what it takes to become a champion, or has he bitten off more than he can chew?

To protect the crew against betrayal, Captain Cross sends the Stalwart on a training mission to Ecoma, a gas giant populated by evolved humans with dangerous empathic abilities. The journey was supposed to be easy: acquire training from the evolved humans, negotiate the use of magical devices that can protect the knights from mind control, and get a bit of R&R.

Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice, and fanatical kobolds from the Depths all plot the village's destruction.

Now a Level 10 ronin, Seiki is slowly coming to terms with the death of Master Tsujihara and his new life in Shinshioka. Spending his days in the Wilderness, he’s venting his remaining frustration while staying away from the city drama and those griefers, like the Rogami Clan, who had made his in-game experience so challenging thus far. He has even taken up a trade skill. But when he’s presented with an offer he can’t refuse and accepts a simple mission to deliver a message to Kano Castle, he quickly finds his troubles are only just beginning.

This is a great story but it could be longer and less constant repeats of stats honestly I would put all long star lists at the end of chapters so it’s easier to skip through for those that don’t want that information spewed at them constantly

This is a good story so far but this book was way too short and needed more action and has so many plot holes


Spoilers below.....




Wtf why not kill the dragon that’s knocked unconscious?!? And why is the thoughtful knife only used in the last battle also why not drop a giant bolder on the dragon that’s swimming toward you if it’s taking hours to get to you!!!!! Way to many plot holes!!!!!
