Publisher's Summary

Life in Alpha World has been a blessing for Alburet, more then he had ever thought it could be, and still more then he thinks he deserves at times. With allies and friends all around him, and the love of three beautiful, unique women, he knows that this might be the best life has to offer.

But all of life has complications, and his are many and varied. A quest from the Overlord requires he level as quickly as he can for the "End Game", or risk losing all the happiness he has found.

While that is difficult enough, more issues keep showing up. The open-ended contract by the Assassins’ Guild on any member of Alpha Company is testing the bonds of those who have joined. Add in the background movements of the Noble Houses to that list to make things even more annoying, but that is still not the end of the troubles. Not the least issue seems to be the machinations of the vague old evil that is stirring again, with its own plans.

With all these issues starting to bear down on Alburet and Alpha Company, he must fight to accomplish the goals needed to keep his loves, all while dealing with his own mental issues.

Welcome back to Alpha World.

So much repetition...

I started Alpha World this last week and was very happy when I finished book 5 and saw that Path to Peace would come out just the day after. After reading this book though I've lost most of my drive to continue with Alpha World.

Nothing gets resolved. Fluff gets some progress but plot progression is almost nonexistent and because some time is finally spent on doing quests/grinding exp the game mechanics come into the forefront, and they suck. It's like some simplified version of vanilla WoW with a physics engine so we really feel the "alpha" state of the game.

Then we have the character dialogue... It was a bit repetitive before but in this book it's taken to another level with almost nothing new at all, if we didn't have Mary and Gerald you could've saved 5 lines and put them on repeat.

In this world apparently rapists are kill on sight but professional murderers are fine upstanding paragons of JUSTICE or something... The way the assassin situation is handled makes every character involved seem like retarded chipmonks at best, contractors assassins and victims included. Taking action against the contractors or assassins isn't even considered.

Overall the book feel like it was written with the kiddy gloves on. Nothing really happens and it has no bite, it only sets up the next Alpha World books while I feel more than ready to get to Delta World.

Still good even with dragging on.

The book is still really good, but it is starting to feel like it is starting to drag on. Though it has done a great job at streamlining what they can do it doesn't drag on.

Awful turn for what started out as a good series

This book was 85% filler, and terribly boring filler at that. Other than the end of chapter read off of the MC's stats and abilities, this book has none of the normal LitRPG qualities. The characters experience little to no growth. The syrupy relationship between the MC and his wives has grown very boring stale. It is basically a romance novel as if written from an adolescent male, that takes place inside an MMORPG.

aimless wandering

The writing is descriptive but aimless, the ending is terrible, you think that the group is finally reaching a big battle and the book just ends... this turned out to be a pointless filler book.

Love the character development

I like how the characters have changed since the beginning. I find the narrator really makes this story great. does a good job not just voice but the tones the characters would use. I am glad I picked this series up

Love the series, but this one was a miss for me

I'm very surprised how I ended feeling about this book. I LOVE the series, and enjoy all of the author s work. However was i hungry for more storytelling not just so many trips to zones to level.This book was filler and fluff. Nothing more.

Nothing much happening

Having waited for this book to come out I find myself disappointed about how little story it contains. So little story that at times I found myself wondering if the entire book was character stats being updated. Character leveling story is skipped repeatedly. The plot could really use some filling out.

Ends before it begins

There is no story, it is just minor setup with a bit of character development on fluff. It felt very forced, and just when something might actually happen it finished. Very disappointing. It would be more disappointing but I've lost all investiture in the characters and series at this point thanks to the lackluster writing and unimaginative development. I have it a lot of patience because of the potential, and it was rewarded with garbage
