Publisher's Summary

The vaunted power of the Mage’s College. Unbounded freedom among the Wolfmen. The best of both worlds.

Recent college grad Sam King was hoping for a backpacking trip across Europe as a graduation present. Instead, he’s going to get a different kind of trip: a three-month stint in the ultimate immersive gaming experience. As a lifelong geek, gamer, and outsider, it’s a better gift then he’d ever dreamed.

But when he jumps feetfirst into the world of Eternium, run by CAL (the Certified Altruistic Lexicon), it’s not exactly what he expected. All he wants is to quest, game, grind some levels, and get his hands on awesome loot. You know, have fun! But the Mage’s College seems to have a very different definition of fun - one involving study, blisteringly strict regulations, aristocratic hierarchy, and tons of pay to play.

Sam crosses the college and finds himself running for his life with a back-talking book that is far more than it seems and a class that no one has even heard of. If he can navigate the deadly college politics and the looming war with the barbaric Wolfmen, he might just find the fun and adventure he was looking for.

Another Solid Entry For Fans of the Series

An enjoyable entry in a well built world. It is exciting to see the collaboration between the two authors as a means of accelerating the population of Eternium. I would not recommend newcomers to the series begin here, directing them instead to at least finish the Ritualist and Regicide first. This entry is certainly viable as a stand alone, but there will be some nested references that encourage the reader to follow the publishing order.

good plotline, with bad characters

what can I say... the plot is interesting even if the characters are overdone andd purely conceived.

characters are completely unrealistic in how they act and are portrayed.

everyone had some kind of accent with no discernable culture in the game.

In short, this was "not fun".

Great!

This is a great addition to the growing story. I really enjoyed the book and for sure worth a listen. Podehl is a fantastic voice actor and the story is really great!

Overall good

First of all, part of the story skipped near the end but I don't think I missed anything important. The story is great but if you read the other books it starts off a bit ugh once he gets in game. Also there is a feeling of no one would put up with this and they would leave why is he still going that makes a portion of the book feel ugh. If you liked the other books you will continue to love this one.

Amazing, so different! So much is the same!

Another amazing adventure! great job to the writers and to Nick. The way this book mixes new experiences in Eternium with so many connections and similarity made me have to go back and re-listen to the other books.

... what the actual hell

so unlike Joe Sam is just a weenie and utterly unlikable the book is I constantl with the others in the series and frankly boring. it's a cheap copy of the first book and frankly pointless since we know what that joe brings down the mage guild so this kid sam doesnt even feel like the protagonist in his own story.

Good Book but there apprears to be a chunk missing

I love this series, and this doesn't disappoint. However, there seems to be chunk of the story missing from the audiobook. I hope this gets fixed. That said, I love the world that Dakota Krout has built! This is worth the credit.

5 hours of torture!

To be clear, the 5 hours of torture was the first 5 hours of the book, which actually could have been condensed into 30 minutes of story building. Every person who has read this book has read the previous books, so we all know what happens to the proposed bad guys in the end.

Even better, for 2 whole hours we got to enjoy the detailed description of the main character going through the class testing process, i.e. the class torture trials, just to pick a class that wasn't even on the cover of the book. worse, it didn't matter after the halfway point, which makes the second half of the book almost a completely different book altogether.

I am not trying to be mean, but why spend so much effort building up a world where we know what eventually happens to the bad guys anyway. all it does is makes whatever choices the main character does seem trivial. he could have planned an epic war with the mages college using dragons and space ships, and yet it wouldn't have mattered because we all know what happens.

however, the reason why it is three stars instead of 1 is because the s cond half of the book is the actual quality that should be a Dakota kraut book. so you give me half a good book, I give you half the stars.

they should have dragged the story out a lot more with the content that made up the second half of the book, because there was some much potential to exploit. Not to mention that the story arc is told from a perspective that hasn't been seen before.

and at the very end... just no. don't try to play these two characters off as arch enemies, because they are not opposite sides of the same coin. they are in fact very similar characters, and most people won't buy the fact that you are playing them off as enemies just because one chose an enemy side and one didn't. Especially considering the main character in the other books worked with the enemy on multiple occasions.

LitRPG royalty

This is best thought of as a collaboration between three of the top contributors to the genre: Krout, Hunter, and Podehl are wonderful together. It's tremendous fun. I recommend it highly.

unapologelic man child

honestly I cant believe that our protagonist in this book is anything but a man child. even if we're told that they went to college I dont see it. they aren't over being a weak willed fool. I think that the author tries to justify this with low "perception", but as our protagonist is able to perceive some things and another others in order to make this failure of a story work it's not believable.

also as a fan of other stories in this universe the main thing I'd want others to know is that this does NOTHING outside of what we've already seen in the other ritualist books. so this seems like an easy "pass".

A weak minded MC

The MC is a weak minded constantly moaning person. I wasted two hours of my life before I returned this book.
