3.0 out of 5 starsDark
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 22, 2017
This third novel in the Bathrobe Knight series hits some very dark places and then unfortunately fizzles out like a damp firework. Theres still interesting reading here, but the final few chapters are far to predictable making for boring work. 6/10
3.0 out of 5 starsNot as good as the first two books
Reviewed in the United States on February 9, 2016
It was ok, but a lot of the quirks that made the first two books great and unique were really not present or minimized in this book. Leveling, special abilities, artifacts, humor, growing the demon society and adding interesting characters to the team, fighting interesting monsters... all either minimized or absent.
The handicapped girl's "transition" was the only thing I really found to be an interesting story development. Stephanie, Eve, and Kass were all pretty uniformly boring characters this time around. Snowcones and unicorns are unique I suppose, but not very interesting as enemies. You learn the story about Demons.
Bottom line go ahead and read book 3 if you've read 1 & 2. Just don't expect the same level of experience/fun from it.
5.0 out of 5 starsDifferent, but just as good, if not better, than the first two.

I will start off saying this book is a bit different than the first two, but that in no way diminishes the story. I really enjoyed the first two, but there was only brief mention of an overarching plot for the series. This book does a great job combining the usual humor and wit from the first two books, with excellent character and plot development. You learn more in this book than the first two combined, which gives you a much better idea of character motivations. Overall, great book that you should definitely read if you read the first two.

It was a lot of fun reading through and finally being able to put together a lot of the missing pieces to the puzzle from the first two books. Some of the lit-rpg elements from the first two books are missing, or are more smoothly integrated, but I felt like it actually made the book more enjoyable to read. There is some great development in the side characters as well that definitely kept things interesting in the moments that werent filled with action. Twists abound!
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat read. you have to read them in order ...

Great read. you have to read them in order and it is well worth it. The story evolves and the character progression is very good. It has a great mix of modern world meets the virtual. I love it every time the Bathrobe knight levels up it adds a new twist. Give it a read.
3.0 out of 5 starsgood but not great, less rpg elements, more annoying banter back and forth amongst the party
Reviewed in the United States on February 10, 2016
some possible spoilers here this third installment went back and forth from good to annoying so many times as I read it that it made my head spin. I liked some of the banter and goofiness and hated some of it in turns. The main bad guys were both remarkably competent and then remarkably incompetent from one page to the next. Other reviewers are correct that more of the rpglit/ game elements were reduced or even absent in much of the book which was a bit of a let down. Lastly I also feel like the main bad guy in this book got too little time to shine before he up and blew it and died. There really wasnt much of a challenge in this book, it was all too easy for the MC and his henchmen. If I had to choose one word to describe this book it would unfortunately be Goofy
