Sintesi dell'editore

Olgerd and his tribal NPC gang have finally discovered the Forbidden City. Problem is, they haven't found what they were looking for. The ancient maps are hopelessly out of date, and the Ennan capital city is lying in ruins.

In the meantime, their enemies are closing in. Noctean hordes are arriving from the Silver Mountain Valley; the Dark army has already crossed the Back Stream, and the forces of Light have already entered the Icy Woods.

The magic protection sphere which Olgerd received from the city's invisible guardians is about to expire.... The only way he can save the lives of his trusty NPC friends is by activating the Twilight Obelisk.

Disorganized

First of all, read the books in order. This book lacks the introductory explanation to ease the reader into the story. This book follows on where the third book ended. Remember the mirror he got? Yeah it gets used once in this book but never explained. It's deus ex machina but the author thinks about these things books in advance so I guess it's ok.

The story is a little disorganized and isn't as exciting as the previous books in the series. This is due in part to the disconnected nature of the substories. The lead up to the next book is ackwardly tacked on. It should be an afterword.

The plot outcome is still a surprise. Yes he raids dungeons, yes he gets cool loot, and yes he levels up.

Loved the first 3, can't finish this one

Literally. I listen at night and I keep falling asleep during it. Not sure what's even happening cause I can't stay awake.

Buy if you want to cure insomnia.

Disappointing

Still a fair book just not compared to the previous three. Story felt choppy and started off so slow I almost didn’t listen to the story. If it had not been for the first three books I would not have lasted beyond the first two hours

Enjoyable - might have some translation errors.

I listed at 1.5x so the slowness that some people have complained about didn't seem to effect me as much.

Through the whole book I kept hearing the narrator say avant-garde when I think what the author meant was vanguard (the leading force) or advanced guard (the first into the fray). That minor thing kept making my teeth ache like nails on a chalkboard.

To be completely fair, in late Middle English avant-garde denoted the vanguard of an army. However in modern parlance it is more commonly used to reflect unorthodox and experimental methods in advancing various fields (e.g. visual, literary, or musical arts, etc.).

When I started the book I didn't know the original definition, but now that I've finished the book I had to look up the words to make sure I wasn't using avant-garde incorrectly. It turns out we're both right but I would still recommend using more contemporary language/definitions in future translations.


On the topic of the story, I feel like the story did advance and I really enjoyed the "in-game" events. I was a little dismayed about some possibilities (that probably weren't possibilities in the mechanics of the world built here) that the main character didn't explore to accomplish some tasks.

All in all, I look forward to the next book.

Ending.... .... ?

I loved the series, even enjoyed most of this book. Unfortunately, the ending of the book just killed it for me, leaving a very bitter feeling in the end. Should have ended the book about an hour and a half earlier. the last bit was basically adding fuel to a fire, then dousing it with water right when you are ready to start cooking.

The worst yet

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo sloooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
Both the writing and the narration are slow. The author is trying to be too descriptive, which really slows down the story. At one point it took over 5 minutes to describe an arrow being shot. This is truly a slice of life that focus more on small internal musings of the main character (30 minutes of him watching buffalo and pigs), than the progression of the story. There are a few moments of action, but they are too brief considering the implications they are suppose to have.
The narrator also reads at a slow pace with long pauses between words. I had to speed it up X1.5.
Never again will I read one of the authors books or listen to this narrator.
Did I mention it was slow.

Had to return it

Any additional comments?

I have only returned 2 or 3 books in almost 10 years. Loved the first books, this was disorganised, the dialogue was not intelligent and I found it freaking boring. Sorry, but this book seemed rushed and not thought out, there was nothing captivating in the first third and then I returned it...

Ending disappointed me.

This was a great series. I was greatly enjoying the story. Then towards the end of the book the author seemed to faulted. It was like the author did not want the series to end when it was reaching its climax. So he halted the climax and then went in a different direction. From that point I started loosing interest. Then the story just drug on until the end where he did not do very much to make me want the story to continue.

Uneventful, boring and confusing!

Any additional comments?

I LOVED this series, i don't know what happened to this last book, i have never struggled THIS hard to get through 75% of a book!

If the series is ever continued in a proper fashion, i would still skip this book and read a summary of book 4, because that is all it takes.

fantastic conclusion

this was a great end to the series. I do agree with other reviewers that the book was kind of rushed in the end ( whats with the Tanner business?) I think we might have added another book to the series maybe... or another hundred pages to this book. Thank you Alexey for taking us to Mirror world. I had a great time!
