The Author Justin Miller doesn't care anymore

The reason why I believe Justin Miller (The Author) doesn't care anymore is because the last part of the book |A Heroes Tale| was a great story. The end left me wanting more but all good stories do. On the other hand the last two books that came out left me feeling like I bought a crave case (30 Burger box) from White Castle but when I opened it there was only one Sandwich inside leaving me feeling Deceived Robbed an Unsatisfied with a burger that has a lot of bread and no meat. Now don't get me wrong I love White Castle sliders just love them but if I were to equate White Castle with Justin Miller's books (Stay With Me Now) his books with the size they are are Crave Case and the meat in the burgers is what is essential to the story. Well someone's trying to pull a fast one on me because half of my birds don't have meat in them and if you know anything about White Castle they don't have a lot of meat in the first place #Harold & Kumar Throwback Thursday
Enclosing
I believe the goals of Justin Miller's books now are as follows

IF THEY'RE LONG ENOUGH THEY'LL BUY IT JUST TO GET THIER MONEY'S WORTH😈

Very good......BUT

I enjoy this story and I generally try not to complain about an authors decisions. However, though this story seems long, maybe around 1/5th if it focuses on a storyline that I didn’t care for and didn’t do anything for the main story other than to delay it. I ended up fast forwarding for several whole chapters. I would still suggest this book now. Several new interesting stories were started, they just weren’t given enough time in this story. Hope the next story does better.

Long character driven story, slice of life of agod

Great book, New world made by Dale and more from exciting characters. Would honestly like to see more of of Tera and Rione with Dale. also love that tsubaki's character is becoming less of a unemotional made I'm getting flushed out the real emotions and desires of her own. Wonder what God power she'll choose kei? Or maybe servants or something else entirely.

Stories new direction hurts the MC'S credibility

I'm honestly really disappointed in the new direction of the story. A video game within a game world? What is the piont of that redundancy? Not only does the story start focusing on this video game but it also reveals how irresponsible and self centered the MC truly is. The MC literally starts spending more and more time playing this video game instead of helping the world's he controls. He plays the game for more hours than almost all the time he's spent down helping his own worlds combined (besides the forced year long boat mission).
It seems the warning in the first book about these people and worlds being real just like him has gone right out the window when compared with his own entertainment and quality of life.

Taking the good with the bad.

So there are two stories in this book, like always, but the second story was...Not to my taste. SPOILERS COMING UP STOP READING IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR! I know that failure is a way to progress a story but I have a hard time listening to an entire army failing so bad they become the enemy they were sent to fight, I know it is more realistic that he failed his first real attempt at an invasion, which felt a little predictable, it just feels hard to think that no one, not even the keeper was like, "we should consider mind control as a possible weapon the enemy might have." and only sending only food for a few months, what kind of strategy is that they had to conquer a PLANET. I really like the whole idea of this book series but it's like he wants me to hate the second story every other time. If I buy any more books I will be skipping the second story. sorry man.

Love the story even if I don't know the point.

Usually by book 5 in a series it is going somewhere. To be fair, this one might have a plan. I just don't know it. I'll keep reading for the relatively unique story.

The book seemed to end suddenly, then there is a short story about an event that I was pumped to read, and it was aweful. Like a random snuff film thrown in at the end for no reason I can see. Huge let down.

Didn't enjoy it as much.

I am a fan of the first to fourth books but I really didn't like this one.
It feels off, especially the later half.
