Description

Lee has managed to survive encounters with the heralds of three different gods, but the price he has paid has been tremendous. Every step he takes leads him closer to victory in the cruel game he has been forced to play, but it also takes him further down a dark path and away from the man he used to be. 

After receiving a request for aid from a beautiful and mysterious messenger, Lee and his inner circle travel to nearby Birnefeld, a large and prosperous city ruled by the dragon king. Before he ever arrives, however, Lee encounters a group of marauders ransacking the countryside, meets a strange new herald who has set up camp in the region, and receives the dire news that the hero Brigid of Kildare has gone missing. To make things worse, a powerful new enemy is stalking him from the shadows, toying with his dreams, and striking at his closest relationships. 

With the seeds of doubt sown, Lee has to choose whom he can trust before his nightmares become reality and everything he has worked so hard for goes up in flames.

Brilliant

Charles Dean has written a masterpiece. Transported to another world is a common style of book, but the twists and plots are unique. The characters are hilarious and the storyline has you wanting more. Jeff Hays and Annie Ellicot preformed perfectly. No one can do a performance like soundbooth theatre.

good story, HORRIBLE MC

Narrator is FANTASTIC and the idea for the magic system and main story line are unique and interesting. the secondary characters are hilarious and well written. The Main Character however is a TOOL BAG! I dont like him. I did in the 1st and 2nd book but half way through the 3rd and this one I've grown to hate him. The sexual frustration and insecurity is grating. I want to punch him. I can tell what the auther is trying to portray however there isnt any substance to back it. he thinks he is a horrible person bc of his decisions however there isnt any decisions that would lead anyone to that conclusion. if anything he'd be labeled that bc of his LACK of decisions and his lying. or the fact that he completely ignores his God/father and the system lady who know WAY MORE than him. for no reason ether. his lack of love life is ridiculous and makes little sense. hiding behind a new relationship with a girl on another plain of existence for ignoring the advances of his dedicated companions. he was avoiding sex LONG before his "girlfriend" one person, a computer generated person, dies and now he is self deprecating and borderline EMO. he lost his confidence that made him likable. The only reason I got the 4th book is bc the other characters are awesome and the story behind the war and the gods have me hooked. LEE is a dipstick!

Epic book

There were so many great moments in this book that left me clinging to my phone as I listened. I had real feelings of frustration, pride, and anger as I followed the main character's struggles. I will be re-listening to this series again and again

Still looking forward to the next installment!

The action, drama, comedy and PTSD keep going strong! If you liked the previous works you won't be disappointed. If you like reading about characters with character and flaws who utilize their brain I recommend trying the first book ;)

A live action masterpiece

First and foremost I’d to congratulate Charles Dean for his work on The series “War Aeternus”. I have finished all 4 books each as captivating and entertaining on its own unique way. A big shout out to the amazing work of Jeff Hays and Annie Aliecott from Soundbooth Theater. This is my 5th book I have finished from Charles Dean ( The Heroic Villain). This was my introduction to litrpg. I’m very pleased on how the scenes were painted to the point of its smallest details( especially battle scenes). Also I’m just going to put this out here, Soundbooth Theater is a masterpiece. I think the combination of both how detailed Charles is and how deep Jeff Hays gets into each character. The scenes are narrated to perfection. Where as in other narrative teams they need to point out certain emotions, Soundbooth theater is able to bring it to life with no description needed. You can feel how each emotion, mood is happening as its played out. There is a difference in describing and acting out the scenes. I’m very pleased with how they operate. I believe its a perfect combination like wine and cheese. So as a reader, I’d rather pay more for quality work to have Soundbooth Theater narratives. It’s such an amazing difference compared to other audiobooks. It can really ruin a good book to be honest, if the narrative team is not as competent and passionate with the work of the author. I seen it happen, and would just like to give authors and readers out there the outlook on both teams. Like I mentioned earlier I’d wait and pay more to have a team like Soundbooth theater work passionately and bring the book to life. I’m not knocking other narrative teams but if anything I want to motivate them to improve and use them as an example. I have waited to finish all 4 books before reviewing. I wanted to have an overall outlook on the series. Each book you become closer and closer to all characters. You can feel the transition and growth of each character throughout the series. I’d love to see maybe War Aeternus 5 one day. There was another post that made a good point, when we want a series to continue, a good way to do that is to promote all previous books. So that others readers are aware and can generate the demand for the author. So if you are a fan, like myself. I’m going to do my best to spread the word and preach War Arternus! Follow the God of alcohol and crafts! Bring as many followers as you can! For justice and Glory! https://www.audible.com/series/War-Aeternus-Audiobooks/B07F6WKYF4

The Anti-Hero Lee.

So. This has been a journey for me. I believed Lee was the hero of the story for the first two books and then he was on a spiral in the third. In this book I realized. He isn't a hero. He is an Anti-Hero. Once you realize you start to know what is going to happen and it doesn't phase you anymore. This of Lee as a Miller who talks before he kills. Once I realize this the whole series took a different turn for me and I enjoyed it much more. Lee does tons of morally questionable things and he does some pretty brutal things, but this world is brutal in itself. Lee has a lot of moral quandaries about what he does and his companions are all different angels and devils on his shoulders. This book was amazing for me in a few ways. First it made me laugh out loud. This was mainly because of the sound booth production and the amazing work of both Jeff Hays and Annie Ellicott. Second was the romance. There has been a "harem" developing for all four books but Lee has been a good faithful man to Masha. Even so, this book has some great scenes that dive deeper into each of the female cast making them feel so much more real. Third is Jade. Jade is not only a good character but also a way for the author to break the fourth wall a bit. Although it is through anime interpretation most of the time, it is hilarious and heartwarming to have so much of Jade in this book. Especially this kind of book! Fourth is the System. The System has grown as an actual character with moods and feelings. I really hope (she) isn't supposed to be a harem element, however I really want more interaction with (her). The System doesn't have a name and we don't really learn anything about (her) at all. (She) points this out in the book and I can't help but identify with and want to get to know (her) more. I wish there was more town building elements. It is mainly glossed over in this book. The relationships and events back on Earth were spectacularly executed and were a golden piece of writing. I enjoyed what Brigid's little arc in this story and was surprised at the very end how it turned out. There is a battle that end rather abruptly which had me confused if it was actually over or not. I feel like it was slightly cut down for some reason. That is my only large qualm though. Overall. This is an amazing piece of writing that I thoroughly enjoyed and sincerely hope there is more to this series.
