Description

Following Jason's evolution into a Keeper, he finds his fledgling city once again in turmoil. A new and deadly enemy threatens the Twilight Throne - one that has no difficulty contending with Jason and the members of Original Sin.

Jason must work quickly to consolidate his city's power. That means securing the villages within the Twilight Throne's influence, finding a steady stream of income, and growing the city's military strength. Even as the group grapples with these changes, they notice that something is stirring up the native undead around the city, although the source of this strange influence is uncertain.

One thing is clear, however. Jason might have evolved, but his enemies have adapted with him. If the Twilight Throne is to survive, the group must grow stronger, and Jason must learn to control his newfound abilities.

Otherwise, the darkness may very well claim them all.

Simply Amazing

It's not often I root for the villain. Awaken Online is one of the best LitRpg I've read, and one of the only ones where the main protagonist is a necromancer. I highly recommend.

Stressfully depressing...

That’s the best way I can describe this latest installment of AO. Bagwell abandons the main things I enjoyed about this series and wholeheartedly embraces the things that most put me off about it.

The thing I have liked most throughout this series is the sense of adventure and character development/progress that the author has woven through both worlds. The thing that makes you really feel like you’re taking a walk through another world and that anything might happen around the next corner.

The aspect that has threatened to put me off of this series throughout every book has been the overwrought hand-wringing and overdone, moral indecision that Bagwell beats away on like highest hippie in the drum circle... I don’t mind this aspect when it’s woven into the story subtly enough that you don’t want to just slap the character/author and start looking through your wishlist for another book on Audible.

Unfortunately, in spite of this book being 20+ hours long it feels like most of it is filled with a bunch of YA moaning a la... “Should I do the thing thing that I know I’m going to end up doing no matter what?” and, “Even though I had no choice or wasn’t even the one responsible for the situation, I just have to obsess over and over about how guilty I feel about the thing that I in fact was not responsible for but for which I irrationally insist on taking responsibility!” and on and on.

There is very little adventure here. Everything is unnecessarily drawn out and picked over until you just feel like you’re on edge and stressing along with the characters, but you don’t actually care about the outcome... for about 19 out of the 20 hours. Also, the bouncing from character to character device doesn’t have the same impact of dropping in big plot turns and “oh sh!t!, no he didn’t” information reveals. In spite of there being a big question about the nature of the world running through the whole installment, this book lacks the advancement of our knowledge of the world and the deeper facets of the workings of both the AI in the real world and the gods/power players in the online one.

In fact I feel like this whole book could have been condensed down to one of the x.5 side novellas and still have been a bit short on plot/character advancement.

That said, the book is (as always) well written and well edited. The narrator does the same fairly good job he’s done all along. However, I find the quirks of his own personal accent endlessly annoying and frequently jarring, but they’re no more or less present than in the rest of the series. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about here then just pay attention to how he pronounces the word “popcorn” throughout these books and try to tell me that it doesn’t bother you too).

In the end, I just hope this is a temporary dip in Bagwell’s otherwise engrossing and imaginative story telling, and that the next books get back on track with the immersive and exciting adventures and character development.

Real world drama

I enjoyed this, but the main story is less in AO than the others. The focus seems on the real world with AO a secondary story. The author works to balance this, so it is still a good book, but I’m reading for the in-game bits. I have enough real world angst without bonus angst from a book. I recommend continuing the series but hope the next isn’t so focused on the challenges outside the game. The teenage boy perspective begins to be one of those characters where the reader keeps thinking, duh, why would he do that? Overall a good book, but not as good as even the side quest books.

solid storyline

The story like is good and has solid attempts to lure the reader forward. Overall it is an enjoyable story with likeable characters. Few areas that seemed rushed and could have more depth but still is very entertaining.

Addictive

I had a hard time stopping and going to sleep rather than listening. Best one yet.

definitely one of the better ones

I've enjoyed the books from the first one but the author continues the grow. I enjoyed the focus on mental health a little bit more in this one :) great job and I'm excited to listen to the next

the struggle is real

if I had to phrase my review in tabletop terms to avoid some spoilers...this book is a constant exercise of the dm (author) rolling criticals and player (Jason) rolling critical saves. while the extremes make for an entertaining read, it's also frustratingly far from realistic.
