Publisher's Summary

Runner and his team managed to bring peace to Tirtius, successfully log the crew out, and have begun settling in to make a home on the isle of Vix. Fate isn't going to let them go that easily though. She clearly hasn't decided on what to do with him. Plots are in motion. Threats local, divine, and abroad scheme to exterminate Runner and the threat he represents. The possibility of what he could become. To top it all off, the server is clearly ramping up towards a full awakening. What does one do with an entire world of "living" beings who are aware?

It all comes to a head when an assassin attempts to take his life in his own home.

Now comes the true test.

What is he willing to wager to build the future he wants, both in game and out?

Or rather, who?

Something different in a good way!

William D Arand finishes off his selfless hero trilogy with what I can only describe as the best book of the series. New characters and old favourites with some solid world building and character development I've found myself going back to the first book to start enjoying the trilogy again.

Jeff Hays has worked his magic on this book as well, if your not familiar with his other work I strongly recommend checking it out, he has a gift for adding a unique tone to each character, adding another dimension to an already good work there's not much more I can add to this without spoilers so I'll just finish up by saying it was worth a credit, and I hope to see the author add more onto this in the future, there's so much potential for more books and I'm more than willing to buy them

16 year olds wet dream.

The first book started of promising but it devolved into a teenage wet dream. I enjoyed the series but there were times where the main character interacted with his "harem" and it got a little cringy. I didn't like the fact one of the main plot points was shooed away and replaced with an easier plot. All in all it was a cool book, but be prepared for a teenage boys fantasy

I usually don't write reviews these books are grea

if you love gaming and escapism these trilogies are for you everything you like about video games wrapped up in a great story tied up and comedy with a dash of a male gigolo

A great ending to an awesome trilogy!

It was an exciting story from beginning to end. I've just recently delved into these types of stories, and I'm glad that this was one of my first stories. I can't wait to listen to more!!!

Must listen

Not much more to say than that. If you enjoy fast paced, captivating fantasy, this series is definitely a must listen!

Not as good as the first two

While I quite liked the first two books in the series I found this one was a little hard to get through. I would have preferred if this trilogy had 2 books

Inevitable power ramp.

A heart felt conclusion to the runner series. People die, countries conquered, and just like any Power Ranger, comic book, or shining anime the protagonist achieves godlike power.
After that. Where else can the story go?

Good performance as ever, story as weak as before

The final book in the series finishes up the story.
Previous plot threads are practically written off as though they weren't there before.
The aspect of the world outside the game is barely touched upon anymore.
Very little happens for the first 2/3 of the book before the story suddenly wraps up.
The main issue with the series that I've had is that the hero is seemingly written to have no flaws. By this book he's the most powerful man in the world with beautiful women throwing themselves at him regardless of how he acts. It seems as though it was written by a teenager.
Performance is still good, with all the voice work coming across well.
Overall: wouldn't bother.
