Publisher's Summary

What is it like for a small flap-eared goblin herbalist to play the role of the Dark Sovereign, the main antagonist for Boundless Realm's hundreds of millions of players? What is it like to find one's self the standard bearer for an army of man-eating giants, cyclops, skeletons, ghosts, and other hellspawn, who don't give a damn about their modest little ruler? 

Our hero didn't desire such an unenviable fate, but there is no way back now. He'll just have to tighten the straps and play the ghastly overlord to the innumerable hordes that now threaten all Boundless Realm. But the longer our hero plays, the better he understands that this world is much more complicated than it seems at first glance and he is just a pawn in someone else's game. And lots of things depend on whether he can figure all of it out in the short time he has left, including his own life.

Great book but ending could use more detail

I loved the series book and was really looking forward to listening to this book when it finally released. The entire story was once again great, but after my first listen through, I felt a bit unsatisfied with how the entire series was concluded. After further reflection, and additional listen through's I acknowledge that it was a good ending for the series, but it just felt a little rushed. Compared to how detailed the rest of the story (And other books in the series) were, it felt like there could have been more written to neatly wrap up the entire series.
For example, the final battle was built up to be so good and such a climatic ending to the book but then ended pretty abruptly. So much of the fighting was just cut out and summarized into a couple sentences. In comparison to the other fights that were described in such amazing detail, it just felt like a lot of potential was just thrown away.

*SPOILER*

Once it was revealed that many of the Gods were going to join the fight, I thought that the initial battle would have been so one sided, or at the very least given enough detail to describe their almighty power and destruction. But there involvement didn't amount to much for the entire battle.

My biggest let down was that Amra finally became Fenrir and then the rest of the battle was summarized to just a couple paragraphs....He gets the final piece to the Fenrir set, gains unlimited number to the grey pack and his entire army of crazy strong grey pack members completely wipes out the player army in no time at all. Its a good ending to the battle that he thought he was doomed to lose, but it just felt like it could have used more detail.

Overall, I felt like it was a very good story, and I'm glad I listened, but the ending had the potential to do so much more.

Rushed Ending

There were a lot of skips in time to get to the end of the story. unlike the other books, this was unabaahedly rushed far too often. I could have just enjoyed 15 minutes of the end content and skipped the hurried fluff. Sad that this is how it all ended...

Predictable writing and story

After getting through his other books, this Author continuously shows that the world in which he grew up completely affects his writing style and story telling ability. I find all authors from the same background all usually write similarly. This book is no different. The male protagonist is the underdog, but is the smartest, best and strongest and always comes out on top. They always end up winning and becoming the top person and all around eventually bow to their superiority etc.

About 30% into this book I was looking towards finishing it and getting on with a different book. Having to listen to him continuously refer to his “big eared goblin” or his “beautiful goblin wife” as a descriptor, was an annoyance and borderline painful.

Rushed

Plot ended up having too many holes making the ending unbelievable. You can tell the whole story was rushed sad when authors do this to their work.

Backlogged

Plot was okay for what it was until literally all the plot got shoehorned in the last 15 minutes. Not any narrative stakes. Kind of went nowhere.

Disappointing Ending

Some context: I enjoyed the first two books in the series and found the third book somewhat lacking comparatively. This book starts great - in line with the first two in the series. But then the final act is almost completely skipped over and the final chapter gives a quick summary paragraph for each of the things being wrapped up that should have been individual chapters. It's like Michael Atamanov forgot his deadline and decided to write the last third of his concluding novel in an afternoon. What a waste of everything building up to that point.

political and war bond

The war in boundless realm is pretty good. The performance was entertaining and I hope there is a book 5. I don't think there will be but they most definitely left open to a book 5. it's a good story to hold you over while the next book of the land is released.

not what I expected, where do we go from here?

I genuinely was not expecting that ending. A few loose threads, so I assume there will be another book. I guess it could end here. I just don't see why the sequel would include any "game play"

hard to write without spoilers

some could say the end of the book is a little forced, things could of been fleshed out a little better... I won't disagree but it did the book justice and was well done. if you liked the other books in the series then you won't be disappointed with this one, enjoy it!

a good ending

unlike some book series which never end this one has one which was happy and fitting for this series. I really enjoyed this book and the entire series and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys this type of story.
