Publisher's Summary

The Nelsons have grown in just about every way since being exiled to Eloria.

Now they will face their biggest challenge yet. For all that they thought they had begun to understand what faced them, it has now become apparent that there are larger forces at work and more powerful enemies behind the scenes.

The monstrous dark mage Seimion seems almost unstoppable with a host of fiends at his command and behind him is the mysterious Master.

If they are to save not only their home but the very kingdom of Albia from utter chaos, all of the Nelson's will be required. For the first time the two youngest, Jackson and Sara, will be called upon to play vital roles.

Join the Nelsons in their Life in Exile in this exciting third installment of this Amazon best-selling LitRPG series.

Great except...

I have a seething hatred for Emily, if not every chapter with her in it every other chapter I find myself thinking, can you just stop tearing this man you "love" down? Please just grow up stop acting more like a petulant child than your petulant child, but I guess that's a goal of the character to invite strong emotion

Awesome adventure! Good character development.

What I like about this series is that it isn't just one person's story, it tells the story of the entire Nelson family. Each family member showed significant character growth throughout the course of the novel.

Before this book, I wasn't a fan of Emily. She's still kind of frustrating, but I find myself identifying more with her character. While Dave is focused on becoming stronger so he can defend his family and become a strong ruler, Emily holds onto her belief in Democracy and individual freedom (often in direct conflict with Elorian culture). I like the fact that Dave and Emily are both able to rule together despite having diametrically opposed ideals.

I also like that she's become more accepting of the fact that Eloria functions according to game rules. It seemed like she was in denial about that before and taking it out on Dave. I'm glad she seems to have moved past that.

My favorite character in this book was Jackson, who becomes the target of bullying and racial bigotry while at school. I hope to see more of him in the next book.

Sara has quite a bit of growth as well. She's an interesting character because she's almost completely pacifistic. She hates violence and solves her problems by using the power of friendship, which makes her unique in the LitRPG genre.

I'm not as much a fan of Mira. Not as much attention was given to her and I find it hard to get into her head. Her class is interesting, at least. Hopefully, she'll get more attention in future novels.

I listened to the audiobook, and the narration by Peter Berkrot was top notch as always. He has an interesting accent and uses different voices for each of the characters to make them sound distinct.

I enjoyed this LitRPG and fully recommend it.

Who hurt this guy...

I want to like this book. I tried so hard to like it and the preceeding books... but even my ten year old caught the subtle hints. The wife is brain dead and self centered sometimes ignoring huge impending events to discuss her "feelings". The daughter is obstinate and defiant to fault. Basically every female is ruled by emotion and acts like shes the center of the world. The husband is arrogant, and ridiculously oblivious of what people are saying. He basicallh reacts like the stereotypical little guy when his "authority" is questioned. It's s just so predictable and I can forgive alot.... I listen to most the free books and rarely leave bad reviews...so you know Im forgiving. The story has so much potential, I just wish the characters had more deepth or basic personalities that arent stolen from a 1920s cartoon.

Thank you for this series!

One of my greatest delights in reading over the past year has been every time a new Life in Exile book drops on Audible. Thank you to Sean, Peter and the crew at Aethon! You guys are incredible and have given me such joy through a hard time. On to book 4!

Entertaining but irritating.

The overall story was enjoyable, just like the last two but the sexism is getting out of control. Male characters are portrayed as week, incompetent, stupid and uncapable of making a logical decision, even throe most ARE logical and just about anything a male does is guaranteed to piss off a female for some week reason or another. Female characters are strong, independent, perfect, make no mistakes and every decision they make is totally the right one. They get justifiably angry and upset at ANY action that gets decided by a man, because its totally wrong and they SHOULD of been asked to make the decisions in the first place. So if you can just ignore the fact that the 2 main characters are supposed to me CO-rulers, yet the male is never allowed to make even one decision on his own, with checking with his wife first. Then you can still enjoy this book.

Impressive

Only minor issue I have is some of the internal character monologues diverge from motivations and situational context.

While I know this is something the author intends for character growth/ understanding of a facet of the magic system, it’s extremely dissonant once you become invested.

Saying that, you WILL become invested in this awesome family of survivors.
