Publisher's Summary

Not every human, elf, or dwarf could be equally important to me - that's a fact I accepted long ago. I was here to serve my role and help end this war, not to achieve world peace or save mankind. It was so that I could someday lead a comfortable and happy life with the people I loved and cared for.

Arthur Leywin has experienced two lifetimes of challenge and adventure. He has lived as a swordsman, a mage, an adventurer, and a king. Now his two lives, old and new, will collide, revealing the connection between King Grey and Arthur Leywin, but at what cost?

How will this affect the ongoing war between the nations of Alacrya and Dicathen? Enemy forces threaten the coastal cities, the elven forests, and the fortified mountain passes. Dicathen’s most powerful allies have vanished, and the military alliance between men, elves, and dwarves threatens collapse. Arthur may be the last hope for his people, but when forced to choose between family and country, where will his loyalty lie?

Spectacular eh

This book is great. Nothing more needs to be said. But I will continue because it is so good.

This book was full of amazing battle and you really get to see the characters develop in new and interesting was, some may have been obvious and cliché, they were done so well I don’t really care. Not to mention the emotional cliffhanger.

Travis baldree was phenomenal as always.

Can’t wait to see(hear) more keep it up.

The combination of author and narrator was a match made in heaven.

Too much sad. Not enough happy

I found this book to be mostly depressing. I desperately hope Turtle Me can redeem himself in the next book. I can't take much more of this.

Sorry to say it...

The audio books have to be the best way to take this series! Webtoon is great (go check it out and support it everyone) but this version just paints the picture I really enjoy in my mind

Not bad but frustraging

This book suffers from the same problems as the one before it. It is still an enjoyable read, but now about 50% of the book is either from other's point of view, or a flashback from the MC's past life. I will definitely read this series until the end. However, I am no longer furiously devouring it page by page like I did before. I find myself skimming the chapters on side characters and random enemies. There were 3 or 4 full chapters told from an enemy's point of view that ended up being pointless. I won't go into why, as that would be a spoiler.

This series is going downhill.

To much back and forth between past and present. To many point of views. should keep it to Art and Tes. I can only hope this changes in future books.

Divergence from a good story is more adequate

If you crave a well built world, with progression, an MC that overcomes challenges, grows as a person, and has an overall positive impact on the world around him, then be prepared for massive disappointment! One would think that after so many novels we would be past the angsty indecision’s plaguing a young MC, but no, it’s worst than ever.

The entire book is basically a case study in how to fail at everything you attempt...all while suffering from a debilitating inability to make a choice that would have any sort of positive impact on the world around you...

As a long time fan of the story I think it may be time to shelve this series until I have a chance to read several reviews of the next installment.

It’s just not worth the time spent to follow the MC on his path of self destruction...

Summed up in one word...Meh

I've enjoyed the series so far. This book is just so boring. I had 3 hours left and just couldn't finish it. Nothing really new gets introduced and a lot of it feels like filler content. The characters don't really evolve in this book. The overall feeling is doom and gloom. Maybe something really interesting gets added in the end, but I just cannot get myself to finish it.

Love the series, but this was kinda a filler book.

So, I've obviously read quite a few books in this series which should exemplify that I enjoy the series, in fact, I like it quite a bit! Yet, this entry felt like a filler book. It didn't really advance the overall plot of characters very much at all in it's full 15 hours. It kinda felt like the whole book could have been condensed down into the intro two or three hours of another book, a better book.

It made me feel like the whole story is running out of steam. I hope the 8th book doesn't just try to pad things out. I want a nice tidy wrap up to the big epic I have been enjoying. It would be terrible to have it watered down and thinned out just to keep the franchise going.

Disappointing.

I don't think I'll be continuing on with this series. It was good, for a while but no longer.

Greedy Writing

The author has done an annoying job of hacking up the story and stretching it out for more books. You can/have to skip over a ton of filler that literally does nothing to change how much you know about the story or characters.

a little frustrating

continuously somebody's going to sacrifice themselves but no then that person sacrifices themselves for the other persons, or the character is going to rescue someone or you can't do it but I can. just getting old at this point.

Molding the protagonist into hot garbage.

Gray is like that jack of all trades and master of none. His inadequacy coupled with crazed selflessness do more harm to the people he loves than good. It’s infuriating because this seems to be how it is going to be for the next book. It’s been like this for so long I lost count of how many books Gray has been a hot pile of garbage in. Yes, many look up to him. But it’s like standing around a burning trash can in the cold of winter, warming yourself but enduring the stinky fumes.

enough already

I think I'm done with this series. How can the MC be so powerful, have the experience of living two lifetimes and yet be so naive and foolish and keep getting his a-- kicked. It's beyond annoying and I struggled to even finish this book.

Not the best book of the serie

Really a struggle to go through this book and finish it. While it is interesting to go through the internal struggle of the protagonist, it is the scrounge of this book. The book felt like an endless whining of character being in powerless situation but still never putting themselves in question.

And once again its great

incroyable encore une fois. flash-back un peu mou mais utile à l'histoire donc on pardonne.

incredible once again. flash-backs are slowing down everything but there here for the story and its worth it to go through them.
