Would you ally yourself with killer?

In this volume Steven is trying to build his army So he can fight shadow An talon The only problem is that he's been in such a killing spree that the other Dragon lord Or suspicious or cassia's around him trying to kill him and to be honest can you blame them No it's said over and over revolution revolution and yet it's not really But anyway that's what's going on mostly in the story At this point Of the volumes and the stories I would probably be a little bit more harsher just because I'm not seeing any improvement in the writing style or the characters are anything like that As far is growth Action is always there sex pretty much the same sure a couple of new girls but it's pretty much the same so the author here is just falling on the formula that works only to add what movies did back Andy early 2,000s when it came to sequels find what the audience like and add more This is what's gonna pretty much happen Throughout the the volumes and finding ridiculous ways of trying to keep Steven from being too overpowered for example He needs to get to Australia and instead of flying over there It's said that is impossible because he'll get to tired I flying 30' foot dragon can't fly from the California coast to Australia unless magic ritual forces him to fled now suddenly he can fly to Australia And yet he needs a jet To fly.I don't know about you but if I am a dragon I'm flying anywhere I want if I get tired I've just simply say hey I'm 30 foot dragon Then we go to sleep in the mountains of swim.

This is not book five

There is a hidden book between four and five. I would recommend reading it before reading this one.

Ok, but...

First off, I really enjoyed the first 4 audiobooks in this series. This one started and it felt like I was missing something. I know there is another story that is not (yet?) on Audible, but I only do Audible. So this book never clicked for me because I couldn’t shake that I missed an important part of the story. That’s why I gave it 4 stars, not 5.

Needs work

So 5 books into this series/story. I like the overall story, I havent found another dragon based, LitRPG; but this particular book started irritating me in a few areas. The author vaguely references the 'skill tree', which is great but whats the point if you arent going to give a little more detail or elaborate on their skill or power level? There are now too many characters to keep track of and the narrator isnt nearly good enough for this many characters. DONT changes the narrator, but reduce the amount of characters with dialog. Lastly, there are some parts of the story that get very confusing when it comes to dreams or visions. The overall plot of the story is still good, but i fear the author is losing focus on a few things.

still going strong

I enjoyed this part of the series . the story is still going strong. the author does not leave cliffhangers although we all know the final objective is still to come. t hth e narrator does a goid job and is an easy listen

More and More Intense!

Well we just seem to be building the intensity! The characters continue to grow and the plot gets deeper and deeper! The conflict with the ultimate enemy must come soon I believe but the build up is brutal!

Excitement Explosion

Im just loving this series as we see just how far enemies and allies will go to destroy or protect the world that they imagine. The best bit Im finding is how well the entire series fits into the overall storyline as we discover it. Superior writing and of course another sterling performance by JPC helps this be a must listen addition to your must have list. Very proud i didnt post any spoilers as its not easy, i received this as a gift and i have chosen to leave my thoughts on this for everyone.
