Publisher's Summary

The adventures of the Shaman continue!

Daniel Mahan, the legendary Shaman of the Barliona game world, has served his sentence in virtual reality. Eleven months of adventures and battles in exchange for eight years in prison isn't a bad trade-off. And yet Barliona refuses to relinquish its grip on the Shaman so easily, erasing the boundary between his two realities. It turns out that it's not so simple to leave the capsule - the Way must be completed....

Totally Redeemed!

The end of the last book left me disgusted by betrayal. It evoked enough emotion in me to make me pissed off at the characters as if I was the one betrayed. This book totally redeems the series by giving it a proper ending! Way to go Vasily Mahanenko! I have also enjoyed the narration by Jonathan Yen which has been top notch. Thanks for a great series.

Quite surprised!

After the last books ending, I had no love for the idea of another one. But the author pulled it off, It's great! I'm loving every minute of this new book! Definitely worth getting.

wait... what?

What happened to all of those other characters and plotlines!? It's like the author took a knife to the story after getting bored with it.

fall of the main character

I became so sick of the main character saying that he didn't understand that I couldn't listen to it anymore. he is the biggest sniveling whiner in the history of fantasy characters.

Good but not enough.

After the way book 5 ended the author had a big task to bring the story back to something great. Just as it looked like I was hooked again it ended abruptly. He resolved the plot, but l felt that we needed a lot more about what happened afterwards. So many unanswered questions....

Holy Moly...

The loops thrown in this book, This Series Even, are knotted together so tightly that it made my brain tie in tighter knots.

This book contains so many contradictions and paradoxes that my mind needs a break before continuing to the next book.

Regardless of the dilemma's faced, I love this book. I did not expect and I will wager anything that no reader will expect what happens in this book without considerable outside knowledge.

I am satisfied with the ending. I have certain emotions I need to recover from but I am still pleased with the outcome of the story thus far.

TL;DR: This book is crazy but worth its weight in gold. You cannot miss this book! Buy it now, you will not regret it.

Good, but abrupt ending to the series, I presume.

Just like the others if you liked them. The ending cleaned up almost all the loose ends but too quickly. For such a long series, I wanted more. Maybe there's still a sequel on the horizon.

Too Many Moving Parts

I am an avid reader of LitRPGs. Since discovering them a few months ago I’ve devoured one almost everyday. Each has their strengths and flaws. However, after six books this particular series leaves me asking if the author had any clue that the convoluted web he was weaving could possibly happen or be believable. I personally had a problem with the past few novels because it seemed like the author “nerfed” his own story (destroying it near completely). It makes me wonder if boredom overtook him and he decided to try his hand at a quasi-spy novel. The intrigue in this book could not have been possible because of the massive amount of moving parts and variables even considering the closely monitored environment of VR.

With all that being said, I am willing to see if the author can pull his own story out of this quagmire or if he himself has gone to “black”.

I love the story, but...

I love the story, but I hate how so many things get left unsaid. overall it's worth finishing after the previous cliff hangar.

Saved the series

After a very disappointing book 5, I almost didn't bother with this one but I'm very glad I did. Loose ends all tied up and a very satisfying conclusion that has made this my favourite litRPG series ever.

The Best performed audio book I've heard.

I have over 300 audible titles and I have to say that the narration and performance of this book is one of the best I've heard. It's a compelling universe with a great story and awesome characters. I can't wait for a sequel.

I love it when a serise all comes together

There is nothing better than when an author finishes a serise in the way it deserves.

It really feels like the author got to tell the story he wanted to tell.
