Description

After concluding their first year at Lorian Heights, Corin and his friends catch a train from their native Valia to the distant country of Caelford.

For most, this would be a simple vacation. Corin has other plans: 

  • Meet Anabelle Farren, the eccentric owner of Farren Labs, and learn about artificial attunements.
  • Seek out Warren Constantine, a previous Arbiter, for training and a potential alliance.
  • Find the visage Ferras herself to seek a cure for Sera's condition.

Of course, Corin is Corin, and there's absolutely no chance he's going to be able to stick to a list. Even if he miraculously developed a sense of focus, he isn't the only one with plans.... 

The Blackstone Bandit. Everyone's favorite mysterious book entity. The aforementioned Farren. A vacationing professor. The mirror of a figure from Keras' past. When their plots intersect, Corin and his friends are, predictably, stuck at the center.

It's going to be a long vacation.

My Favourite in the series so far

Excellent character progression and as always, Nick does a fantastic job. Exciting to see a new country and new characters as well as an old friend.

There should be another book. At least a lead off series tying this Universe together. No?

One hell of a series.

Each book flows into the next with such ease looking forward to the next book.

Spectacular

One word to describe this book is spectacular, I would highly recommend this book, this series, this author and this narrator.

Just get it and enjoy.

Couldn't put it down

If you liked the last books, Rowe is at the top of his game. Definitely more laugh-out-loud moments here than the previous books, and a peka behind some of the curtains.

good story, great narrator

I really like the narrator, he brings all the characters to life.
The story is engaging, but i prefer the first book.

Loved the story. Kept me interested from start to end. The reader is amazing, I always knew who was talking just by his voice.

Starts a lot of plotlines, doesn't continue any.

I think this series is turning in a direction that I really don't like. I am not a fan of long-running series in general. I like the tight trilogy, the three, maybe four book arc. Unfortunately this author is writing this book like he has 14 more in which to explore his plot. He starts a dozen new plotlines and introduces a bunch of new characters while moving the pre-existing plotline almost not at all. Also it heavily references the author's other books that are part of this universe but not part of the main series which is just annoying. If I had to read the side books to understand this one then make them part of the main story, don't make me feel clueless just because you don't know how to write a cohesive plot.

I'm probably done with this series after this installment. What a letdown.

Boring and Tedious

I literally could not listen to this anymore. This book was going nowhere. It consists of back and forth banter that does not advance the story in any way. I listened for a few hours on and off and finally decided to return it.
I enjoyed the first two books in this series, as well as the spin-offs. I think this might be the last one in this series that I listen to. The reviews obviously can't be trusted. I cannot believe that someone actually gave this book a five-star review. Lately it seems as if authors are just adding filler books in the series to boost profits and not advancing the plot or storylines.

Boring.

Nick P is one of my fave readers and he did a great job. The book itself sucks. The story slowed way down. The book does a lot of 1x1 battles for each character, but Even in the 1x1s they’re mostly characters asking, “do you mind if I take this on myself? Jump in if I’m going to die” so there’s no real feel of danger, just everybody showing how strong they are. It sets up for a seemingly stronger endgame. The trials are long, and drawn out, often with 1 short battle with minimal danger. The murder mystery trial was absolutely terrible, I chalked the book up as a dud after that.

And then nothing happens

This book is a definite downgrade from the previous books. The end of two relieved alot of the building tension and this book feels aimless without it. This is made worse by the fact that Corrin feels almost superfluous to large portions of the book. Rowe seems to be writing Sarah as Corrin+. She's always right and and is better than him in basically every scenario they run against, and her tendency to treat Corrin like a child got old fast.
To summarize: This book barely feels connected to the plot and poor use of character just makes it worse.

kind of a side quest

Sarah is suspicious of every person they meet and that is completely warranted but gets old quickly and the quibbling between corin and her gets annoying so annoying that if you drank alcohol every time they said a witty remark towards each other you would get drunk within a chapter.
Sara is op as hell now or going to be when her scaring is completely healed which is not a big problem in her fight's, Corin and mara are also op though for Patrick it's hard to tell because it's mentioned that he's talented but there aren't actually many fights and Patrick doesn't really fight or even appear in any of them,Cecily is new and doesn't have that many appearances ether but her relationship with Corin is wierd and I'd rather see more of jin plus not big on the Shy thing and the romance parts are cring

in total great world building not much action at all which made a lot of bots boring especially when they went into the tower but it's a good precursor for book 4 that will probably be action packed, some questions awnsered but even more have been raised which is how I like it, would have liked more Caris in general but I guess I'll have to wait around two years for book 3 of the sacret sword side arc thing and even longer for the next book in this series to come out but as long as it's got a lot more action I'll be happy

So glad to hear Nick bring the story to life again

The gang is on break in Caelford and so much happens! I love how much we learn during this book and an interaction with a certain professor stands out as one of my favorite moments from this book.

The tone shift is different in this book - we had school and the newness and fun of magic in the first two, and now we are really learning about the broader socio-political implications of the world and just what Corin is involved in. The stakes are higher and I can’t wait for AA4!

NOTHING HAPPENS

waited years for this book and it was for a filler arc. It's all set up and very little pay off. Bad

Another Hit

This is an S-tier fantasy series with a hint of Lit-RPG flavor, and this newest addition delighted me to no end. I bought a physical copy while I waited for the audiobook to come out and both were well worth the wait. Nick as always delivered a sellar performance - both of these artists are truly perfecting their crafts. Thank you so much.

It’s all coming together

I can’t remember the last time I was so excited for a book to hit my library! I will say this book was a little different than AA 1 and 2. It seemed to me like a crossover. If you haven’t read The War of Broken Mirrors and Weapons and Wielders yet read them first. It will really make you appreciate this book so much more. There are a lot of little things that you will absolutely love of you have the relationship with the previous characters.
When a certain red head comes in I literally did a little squeal.
I’m so excited to get the next book in Andrew Rowe’s universe no matter which series it’s in.
Nick of course is a master as always! Top notch.
This book really gave him lots of little ways to show his narrative powers.
Basically if you like Rowe you will love this reshing book. Read it now. If this isn’t your style you are missing out. Keep it up Rowe

Amazing as always

evey book in this series seems to just deepen my love for the world being built . The view of magic is done in such a way that is new and imaginative. This is a series I've personally suggested to many people. that ending though 😆
