Publisher's Summary

Phil Panfilov's tribulations seem to have run their course. He's quite prepared to quit the alien game installed in his brain. In fact, Phil looks forward to a normal existence: both he and his company are in excellent shape. Still, the timing seems to be badly wrong.

Humanity's enemies are stronger than ever. Despite all his new abilities, Phil has never been so close to defeat. But there's too much at stake this time, his interface included. Without it, all his hopes for a better future will be thwarted.

Phil can't afford that to happen. He has to face his enemies and defeat them, otherwise all his work has been for nothing.

Can he really confront a force which is infinitely more powerful than he can ever hope to become? A force which will stop at nothing to achieve its ends....

Lovely. Worth every moment of my time.

I loved this series and thank the author for bringing maturity to the LITRPG genre. This is not a perfect book or series. There were times I found the main character to be stupid and naive. But the author remained true to the core of his work and strong character development.
During a time when every book in this genre is infected with harems and juvenile stupidity, Sugralinov produced a breathe of fresh air. This was completely new and different, grounded in the real world with real world problems and concerns. I look forward to this author's future works.
If you want harems, two dimensional characters and pointless motivations this is not the work for you.
If you want adult entertainment and a main character you wish you knew in real life, please pick this one up. It is worth your time.

Best in the series this far

The story starts to wrap up in this book. Everything has been leading up to some key events that takes place in a fast paced and interesting story. I was hoping it would go this way. There are more or less two stories going on (or a short third where we see bits and pieces) and both was entertaining to follow.

As with the others, there is lots that gets messed up in the translation to english. The dialouges are sometimes really bad (because of the translation) but the voice actor makes it believable and it works really good. This last book has less of the weird sayings or "similes" that I had to google to see what they ment in book 2, so thats good.

All in all, it´s easily worth a credit and some things in the book makes you think about yourself and your own choices. I recommend!

Amazing

This is without a doubt the best trilogy I have ever read. I thoroughly enjoyed this but I could be biased because I’ve often wondered what it would be like if something like this happened to myself. Either way it’s a great read and everyone should read this who enjoys video games on any level

Better than expected

It was better than expected, but not as good as I had hoped. I think I liked the first and second books better, only because they touched closer to home in terms of character growth and the impact of an interface on reality. Both previous books actually inspired me to be a better person. I think this one was too big to relate to, but it was still very enjoyable. In fact, I respect the sheer size of the third act. Very impressive. I dropped all of my other pending books to get this one as soon as I saw it and did my best not to binge read it until it was over. I only lasted a few days. I was not disappointed. I definitely recommend this book and this series.

The relatively low score for performance was only because sometimes the narrator changed voices in the middle of dialogue. Like he couldn’t tell who was supposed to be talking, even though in the narrative it was obvious. I would have liked for those wrinkles to be smoothed out, but it really didn’t pull me out of the story at all. It was just noticeable.

Why did it end like that?

Wonderful book. But the last paragraph or so of it left a lot to be desired. They didnt have tonleave it like that. Damn you Mr Sugralinov.

Phil as a the main character...

I feel regardless whether another Novel comes in this series comes im done. The concept and story are greag i love the idea. Phil as a character is just insufferable and infuriating. This is now third book in series and he still.makes same type of mistakes for same idiotic reasons. if phil was a younger character maybe it would be more forgivable. i find myself siding with his opposition more than him because of it action and constant acts of stupid y and.holy.than.thou thought process after repeatedly being told.and shown better..

What an ending

I've probably done about 3 reviews out of over 100 audio books I own, this being one of them. This entire series has got to be one of my favourites. The ending is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone.
