Publisher's Summary

The epic conclusion of the Tarot series!

A crippling wound. A war looming on the horizon. A demon king to kill.

Finn and his companions barely escaped their encounter with Bilel. But not without a cost - including the loss of Finn's left arm and the magical corruption that now plagues his body. 

Despite those handicaps, Finn must keep pressing forward if he is to have any hope of bringing Rachael back. As the Seer predicted, the guilds and Khamsin have formed a fragile alliance. But before they can lay siege to Lahab, Finn and his companions must first find a way to defend themselves and their fledgling army from the effects of the god relic that Bilel now wields....

Which will send them deep into the heart of an ancient workshop. Along the way, they'll encounter advanced magical technology, new friends and foes, and will be pushed well beyond their limits. They will be reforged in the fires of adversity - forced to prove their mettle, even with the odds stacked against them. 

Hopefully, it will be enough.

Because soon they will face a demon king and his armies.

Sort of predictable, thrilling nonetheless

Granted, some of the plot points are somewhat predictable and the writing feels redundant sometimes (same expressions used excessively), but I'd lie if I didn't say I enjoy AO and I'm excited for what's coming next!! David Stifel is also an amazing narrator, brings the story to life!

Just keeps getting better

Travis Bagwell has done it again. Another great book and continuation to an awesome story. The ending is definitely a cliffhanger that I was not expecting, however the build-up towards the continuing stories is fantastic! With my brow furrowed I shall sit patiently and await the next book.

alright.

I really didn't like the break in the action were you went to two new pov's. I could maybe ok with the first one (the female new player) but I would of enjoyed it somewhere else the book. it just broke the flow you were building up. other then that not too bad for the genre. I would love too see a reference to the other charters from the first books too see were they are timeline wise.

Better than original series.

I'm a big fan of the entire series so far. After listening to several litRPG books and liking the genre, this series has remained my favourite.

My main appeal to this side serie is that the main character is simply more enjoyable overall mainly due to the fact that he is a independent adult rather than a teenage boy.

As for this specific book, the story is generally good. The overall story arc is less interesting than the previous books, but it was nice to see tie ins with the main series throughout the book. It was also nice to see Finn be less masochistic for a change. My biggest annoyance with FINN was his tendancy to pretty much kill himself to achieve small wins... less of that in this book.

Minor gripe with this series is that although I find Finn far more interesting that Jason, the side characters are kind of boring and pretty much useless pions.

Excited to see where the story goes, but Im sad to see that its going to go back to Jason's POV.

I highly recommend anyone who is interested in the genre to grab the whole series.

I was so surprised at the change!

I was so upset at book two, I didn't rate it very well at all due to all the drama, pity boo hoo's and 12 hours of ants. BUT This book did a 180! There is NO "boo hoo feel soory for me", the encounters and dungeon is interesting, not boring, and doesn't last forever. I loved everything about this book. Maybe the author read the reviews about the second book or w/e but this book goes back to the greatness of the first book and I am SO glad that I pressed the purchase button! I can't believe it. The first time I've seen an author listen to the reviews. If you were on the fence because of book two, then let this tilt you in the right direction. Buy and read this book. Nothing bad from book two followed into this one.

Main Jason story is much, much better.

Story was ok, but i feel the main stories following jason are much, much better, and im getting tired of this slog of mediocre side stories.

Not my favorite book in the series

I hope Jason eliminates Finn, his daughter and his crew! I dont like the characters in the book.

BORING!!!!!!!

I like all the awaken online series, but not this one. Overpower side kick AI who can do lots of thing and slow progression story. This book feels rush and wanting to end.

Charactor growth and story progress at a snail pace and ending was a letdown. Thank god Travis ended this series and can start focus on the main plot. Not his best series and work.

Not as good as the 1st book.

Both the 2nd and 3rd books of this series seriously drag. I am a huge Travis Bagwell fan. I absolutely loved the 1st book in this series as well as the original Awaken Online series. I don't need non-stop action. But the characters and plot are progressing so slowly.

Lots of “reflection”

Sometimes I tuned out for 30 minutes, zoned back in and there was so much self reflection of the main character that honestly i didn’t need to go back as the story hadn’t moved on. Overall a good book though.

Meh

Struggled a bit with this side series. Ghostwriter maybe? I'm looking forward to getting back to the main storyline.

Much better than book 2

Book 3 delivers action and story telling more closely aligned to the parent Awaken Online series, which is welcome news given book 2 was so slow and drawn out. Book 3 is a great conclusion to the initial Tarot series storyline and is well positioned to be brought in to the original and larger Awaken Online world. Overall, the Tarot series is well written and thought out. I've really enjoyed the new AI components in the form of familiars and look forward to more adventures in the series.

not as good as the rest. drags on..

series seems to finally be running out of gas. very long winded and not engrossing as the rest. its been far too long without the main focus of this story Jason and his crew.

Had an abbreviated version of the drag from book 2

Overall, it was a good book. However, like in book 2, the dungeon was a real drag. It was much shorter than in book 2, I'll give you that.

I just don't appreciate the EXTREMELY long explanations of the puzzles they are facing, their thought processes, their summing up of what they just talked about and the intricate details of the systems at play in the dungeon. Holy hell. Yes, I understand the dungeon was complicated in its own way, but we don't need to know how much it's like tracing wiring on a circuit board just to open a door. I felt like I was reading a manual for a motherboard or a new Raspberry Pi.

Outside of the dungeon, though, the book wasn't bad. It pales in comparison to the first book, however. The events that actually transpire in the story from book one to the end of book three is great, but overall, Finn and crew are much less entertaining than Jason and his people. If it turns out Jason turns Finn into bone coat hangers for his closet, I won't be sad about it.
