Description

The Beginning After the End: Publisher's Pack 2 contains books 3 and 4 of The Beginning After the End series. 

Beckoning Fates (book 3):

Was I taking this life for granted? Having this amount of power at my age had made me lose some of the sense of rationality I’d had in my former life. No longer a king, no longer tied down by rules and politics, I’d become careless. In this world, my potential was boundless.

Though Arthur Leywin would like nothing more than to pursue his studies at the esteemed Xyrus Academy, where he hopes to push his already potent magical abilities to new plateaus and perhaps discover something more about his reincarnation into this world, he finds the politics of the school’s halls even more challenging to navigate than those of the council chambers he once inhabited as King Grey. Arthur faces inept professors, jealous classmates, and an overeager director while fending off the affection of an old friend and the aggression of an old enemy. Then a routine class trip into a low-level dungeon turns out to be anything but, and Arthur discovers something that will change his life forever.

Horizon's Edge (book 4):

In my past life I hadn’t had anyone I would have given my life to protect. I had that now, but I didn’t have the strength to protect them - not against what was about to come.

In another life, Arthur Leywin was a king and no stranger to war. He was not ready, however, to find himself at the heart of a conflict that will reshape his entire new world. Despite his abilities, it seems as if the danger only increases with every discovery he makes. His oldest friend succumbs to a power that may destroy her, a power Arthur gave her. His most constant foe accepts a dark gift to challenge Arthur’s strength, an act that threatens all of Xyrus Academy. How can he keep his family safe if his very presence is the thing that draws danger to them? Can he dispel the specters of war before it is too late?

Felt like a different author than books 1&2.

The good part, Travis Baldree was amazing as always. Books 1&2 were great, but that may have made this worse!

(Edit) After some reflection most of my outrage has nothing to do with book 3. But, that is because it is sort of light and enjoyable, since nothing really progresses I'd say it is filler. However, I would have preferred more of that instead of book 4. ( end Edit) (now if only I can stop editing and adding to this review!)

This was an overwhelming silly book. The MC can no longer think. In books 1&2 the MC makes informed decisions using the experience of his past life. But, in this book he can only make the worse most implosive and emotional decisions. The worst part is that these decisions are just the MC's reaction to other people. After finishing I struggle to remember the MC doing anything on his on initiative in books 3&4. It felt like he was just dragged around for 2 books. Who is this MC? What happened to the MC from books 1&2?! Why can't anyone talk to anyone else about anything that happened?

The closer book 4 got to the end, the sillier it became. I can't even talk about all the silly things for fear of spoiling. This book took the buildup from book's 1&2 and just wasted it. Internal consistency, what is that? Character consistency? You can just throw that out the window to add more emotion, again, and again, and again.

The flow of books 1&2 revolved around the MC making decisions and exploring the world. There were some coincidences, two particular meeting, and the MC even gained a special item through coincidence. But, throughout the story I felt like the author really did the leg work to get from point A to point B. What the author wanted to happen in book 4 was really contrary to what was previously setup. He had to move lots of characters around in a very artificial way in order to have the conclusion he wanted, but without leaving the setting that has been solidifying.

This lead to a climax in book 4, where the characters acted out of character, a villain was created for the MC that lacked the motivation to carry out his acts, And finally, the MC could only do everything the worst possible way, emotionally, reactionally, without thought or consideration. But, even then, things would have been radically different if the timing was even slightly different for anyone leaving or entering the last part of book 4. A quick count brings me to 5 perfectly timed arrivals or departures to arrive at the authors desired outcome. It was maddening!

Honestly, this book (book 4) felt like a completely different author took over and just did what ever he wanted. What a disappointment.

Don't Listen To the Negative Reviews.

This is still a very solid progression series.
Yes there is a cliff hanger. If that ruins an entire book series for you, never watch a TV show ever.
Yes there are overpowered character. Welcome to the GENRE that's kind of the point. This part of the series was developing the true villains of the series so of course they are going to be stronger. How boring would it be if the main character was the most powerful the entire time.

The Negative reviews on this book silly and from people who really don't get the genre of cultivation. They have the right to there opinion, but don't let there opinion take away from the fact that this was enjoyable the whole way through.

The fourth book ruined the series for me.

If you like pointless under powered side characters, over powered villains who can do whatever they want because your main character can only react never plan ahead, and a stupid cliffhanger this is the book for you!!!

will no longer listen to the series

I was really starting to get into this series. but the ending. (no I'm not going to spoil it) In cliffhanger like that at the end no good especially being one with such a Negative overtone. in my opinion they're just cheap tricks of authors who can't do anything better.I thought this author was much better than that, but sadly no.

disappointing

the third book is okay, but the fourth book just doesn't have the foundation to be satisfying. It's full of jobbing by people we hardly care about, knowing that nothing significant is going to happen until Arthur gets there.

Wasted words

To many viewpoints rehashing the same parts of the story. Terrible ending designed to sell more books instead of completing a arc.

It got manga sickness :(

The story of the first 3 books was good, even wonderful most of the time, but the 4th book got manga sickness and has sacrificed it's internal logic and plot cohesion to try and create scenes that could potentially elicit a bigger emotional reaction from the reader. Because in mangas that go on for too long everything has always to be more stronger and more bigger >:(

Examples:

- Art not telling anyone about the massacre amd what he knows after hearing that a war is coming is insane and only there to try and get a bigger reveal when he finally tells someone.

- Art having this depression about getting hurt all the time makes no sense since there was always a good reason for that happening and it felt as if he was regressing into childhood if I compared his behavior to the 1st or 2nd book. Wich is quite annoying since it feels as if that is only written into the story to hold him back.
Also the mother character has devolved to the constant crying wreck character trope.

- Tess integrating the beast will faster because of some circumstances was already a bit annoying and very near to breaking my suspense of disbelieve. But when she then got an instant boost to her strength progression just because the writer couldn't find a less lazy way to let her catch up to Art I had to stop reading, it destroyed the story for me. With that the autor was basically saying:"forget everything about how my world works, because I can and will change anything on a whim".
The episode with the strange shop is another example of that.

- Everybody holding back important secrets but nobody willing to get answers even though it's clear that everything would work better if ppl knew what was going on is also only there to get bigger reactions when these secrets finally do come out.

Best Audiobook of the Year

I really love Tbate. The Story is awesome, the narrator is fantastic and it has the best and cutest Dragon EVER "Kyu"
There is just one thing I didn't like.... the end because I have to wait for what will feel like an eternity for the next audiobook. I can't recommend it more tho and it's just a must have for every fantasy lover, especially if you're a litrpg fan.
