    Description

    Enemies emerge everywhere. Stagnation starts seeming standard. Results require Ruthlessness.

    Joe has been moving deeper into his study of ritual magic and further away from his combat team. He's learning more and more, but more often than not needs to choose between his research and squad leadership. Improving the town is a huge help to the guild, and they have been pushing to increase their power.

    Their rapid increases have not gone unnoticed. The guild receives an ultimatum, delivered by assassins and signed with blood. If they continue to accrue power and fame, each and every person with a grievance against the guild will come to smash the town back to square one.

    With tensions coming to a head, all Joe wants to do is leave it all behind and reach the next area. He flatly refuses the guild when they ask him to devise lethal options to use against the gathering army, but when the time comes...even Joe is unsure if he'll step into the limelight and show everyone exactly how ruthless he can be.

    Why do they have to ruin a good thing?

    Luke Daniels is a very good narrator. The low score is for the blooper reel at the end. Blooper reels are fine but I have children that listen to this series. Now I have to restrict them from listening to the book on their own because someone thought it was a good idea to add a bunch of curse words at the end of a book that didn't have any.

    been waiting for this book for a while.

    This one was great. Still can't get over the voice changes from the previous narrator being changed to what they are now, but it was still good. I'm glad the author finally came back to the main story as I didn't find the side stories appealing. If you're a fan of the series, you won't be disappointed but if you're new to the series then alot of subtle hints will go over your head and you most likely won't like it because its confusing to you. Would definitely recommend and will be listening to it again for any information I might have missed.

    My only gripe that isnt really a gripe, is that in classic Dakota fashion I find my self so frustrated going from chapter to chapter because he leaves just that little bit of suspense in the more high anxiety places that make you want to both return the book and skip ahead to the next chapter to see what happens. Only to leave you at the end of the book wanting to listen to the next one immediately.

    Thanks Dakota, keep em coming.

    aggravating.

    the auther keeps throwing so much crap and negative situations only at the MC over and over again he never gets ahead and the moment he does everything changes and it becomes a waste or gets stolen by some gimmick the author threw out. Seems like the author loves treating the mane character like crap and the only thing the MC can do is continuously fail for random reasons that come out of the wood work for the sole reason that the MC got slightly ahead. all these other chosen of deities don't go through this crap only the MC. I will def not get the next one this one was so aggravating.

    It makes me sad

    TLDR: The story is good, better than Raze, but the narration has gotten worse.

    I liked the story, this book felt more cohesive than Raze did, and fleshed out the world by adding new skills, and explaining some of the deities (with references back to the divine dungeon). Joe can still be kind of off putting, random, and jerk for no reason, which makes him harder to like, but that’s reasonably well explained and works out towards the end.

    Somehow Luke Daniels has gotten worse since he took over narrating for Krout. It’s already extremely jarring to switch narrators, and I get that was likely a funding/producers choice or whatever, but it’s no excuse for such a poor performance. Luke can be great like in the iron Druid chronicles, or Magic 2.0, but this series has been phoned in. There’s a lot of mispronounced words, the character accents slip at times, no effort at all was made to keep any sort of audio consistency with the first 2 books.

    Also there’s a blooper reel at the end, with no warning or intro, I thought my file had corrupted or my phone was breaking.

    Another good performance and story. I can't bear

    🐻 the wait for the next one. If you enjoy the previous books you will enjoy this one as well.

    Story was good but the narrator wasn't.

    If you're thinking of getting this then you probably already know what to expect with the story, but the narrator; for me anyway, made this hard to listen to. His inflection was all over the place, and very inconsistent.
    The book itself is consistent with the previous books and worth enjoying if you enjoyed the story up till this point.

    Thrusting codpieces and evil bankers

    Another great book in the series.

    Being exceptional can often be a problem when that exceptionalism creates envy and jealousy among those who want what you work for. Joe finds himself having to face those who want to keep him and his guild stagnant and powerless as they face their greatest challenge yet. Instead of accepting their probable doom both Joe and his buddies work ever harder to be the best they can be and help their guild and friends rise to the occasion.

    Love how bit by bit we’re getting to see a connection between all of the author’s books both new and old. His creation of what is essentially an extended universe gives a nod to his fans that have followed him since the early books. There is no pandering though so it’s still an approachable world that he is creating for those who’ve yet to read his other series.

    I’ve been wondering for a while what his inclusion of so many puns and dad jokes reminded me of and it finally came to me. For those of you who remember the Xanth Series, much like Piers Anthony you’ll find his tongue and cheek use of puns to be a fun reminder of how puns can be fun even while groaning inside.

    Luke Daniels provides another excellent performance and conveys the intent and range of emotions that is needed for the characters. My only problem is that he voices some of my faVorite characters and I’m sometimes picturing some of those characters while listening to the book. Not his fault, probably mine for liking so many of the books he voices.

    Overall great experience and definitely recommend to those who are fans of LitRPG/GameLit/Fantasy/Puns and Coffee.

    Story top notch .... Narration more of the same

    The story realy picks up the "war for food"is very interesting and the main plot of the Book.
    All the Enemis Joe made previously come to get a piece of him.
    a side plot is the advancement to the next zone which is also fun to listen to.

    As for Luke Daniels ... i have no more to add.

    the book is good with another Narrotor it would have been better

    Love it!

    Enjoyed every second, narrator is brilliant and story continues, without any long reviews, right where it stoped in part 4.

    To the story, well ruthless!

    My recommendation to all who have not started this series, read it in one rush, otherwise it is a bit hard to catch up it may be hard to follow if you have read it 1-2 years ago.

    Looking forward to see Joe mastering the next zone. Elves and dwarfs be aware and be warned, here he comes the bold headed weirdo!

    More litRPG goodness

    While initially I put this series on hiatus due to the narator change, he performs amazing In this title (also the bloopers are an amazing addon :) ) . The story is interesting and over the top Charakter development as you would expect it from this series. If you liked the previous ones you will also love this .

    Weak points are probably very little actual Charakter development overall (well it's litRPG.. what do you expect ? ) And that the story is rather short. Also, joe must seldom face real desasters and stumbles into good things. But this is also something I love about this series. It ist not serious but light hearted interesting fun with to many puns :)

    Would recommend to listen.

    Funny, original, intelligent

    I adore this series and the speaker.
    The characters are well rounded, the world building rich and the story gripping. All told in a voice that makes the most technical aspects interesting.

    Also, there is a Blooper Reel. Awesome 😂

    Not much to say except...

    If you have reached book 5 of this series you know how good it is. But still wanted to say: Retaliation of Shadows cracked me up, it's awesome.

    Just brilliant! It's so worth it!

    This is the best of the books so far. After the last one I thought it's getting down. But Dakota really surprised me with this one.

    Good plots, nice twists and a good potion of humor. I don't know where he's getting all the ideas from but I'm very pleased.

    Now I'm totally teased to get my hands on the next one. Much more than after the previous.
