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 The ancient maps are hopelessly out of date, and the Ennan capital city is lying in ruins.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.
The narrator has a very odd way of speaking that's very distracting; plus, he speaks slowly and conveys a depressed attitude that casts a pall over the entire story. I followed the advice of another commenter and boosted the playback speed 20%, which helped.
Otherwise, the story is very run-of-the-mill. Hard to really care about the main character.
Probably the only reason I keep buying these audiobooks is that by the time the new one is available, I've forgotten that I disliked the previous one.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Once I got past issues it was all right
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Twilight Obelisk?
Once I got past issues it was all right
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Yeah the narrator did OK
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
In the beginning few chapters is start skipping I may have missed a couple of phrases I don’t know if that was important to the story but that happen
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.
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.
friggin epic! loved every second of it.
from the wall to the citadell to the mountais it keept me listening almost unabridged.
Am I annoyed there was a 4 book build up that went unfulfilled? Indeed. But, it kept with the utterly consistent charachter. Far be it from me to be mad about someone acting with integrity...even if it is just a fictional one.
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
I was first drawn to the series because it wasn't a LitRPG that turns into a power trip. Oleg's ability to keep humble is one his best features. I will say of the four books this one seems the weakest as it feels like there are a lot of loose ends. In part, I feel like this was on purpose as it gives the feeling of being in a game where Oleg is ignoring the story. Some nice twists but I feel disappointed that all the friends that he made over the series boil down to a few bit parts.The NPCs are interesting but I feel that without also having some players involved it makes the story a bit dry.Still I feel its worth listening to complete the series sort of like how I feel about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It migh not be the ending we want but it at least gives us closure.
I waited a long time for this book to arive, in the lit rpg genre i get tired of most stories after book 2 or 3 because it tends to be alot more of the same. This story progresses nicely and it stays interesting.
the narration is too slow, so thank you audible for having the option of speeding that up. But I dont want to be all negative here, the different characters are performed well and that way it stays interesting to listen.
the entire story was godawful and the author relied way to heavily on deus ex machina moments and it was also very cringey when the character interacted with characters
