Publisher's Summary

Audiobook four of the best-selling Eden's Gate series!

Edgewood is under attack, and the threat of war lingers across the Serpent Sea. A thief is becoming a thorn in Gunnar's side, and a tempting elf is getting a little feisty.

In order to protect their village, the members of Unity will need to work together to level up and find better gear. They'll need to lay the foundation of a castle that can serve as a fortification from intruders.

But what if there's a better way?

When Gunnar learns the king of Highcastle will grant an audience to anyone who wins an arena championship, he decides to enter the competition as a gladiator. If he can earn a meeting with the ailing king and persuade him to stop Dryden before his dragon flies, he can save Edgewood and countless lives. He'll also get his name posted in every arena, which could lead Rachel one step closer to finding him.

The arena is a spectacle where people gather to watch fighters put their skills to the test, earn fame, and take home gold. Does Gunnar have what it takes to become a champion, or has he bitten off more than he can chew?

Why is the MC stupid?

This has been my over riding question during this series. He never seems to grasp blatantly obvious things. Constantly judges other people without seeming to realize he did similar things. His actions are justified but no one else’s actions are. Please please make him less stupid and these books will be better for it.

Could have been better

I absolutely love the world the author created but this book is the worst of the series.

The main character is quick to dismiss possible options, or incapable of thinking out of the box, uses only his basic spells well after he's been attacked, and is locked in his fear of the pain from death. This isn't an avid gamer adapting to and loving the world he's in, this is the same scared person that was left behind in the real world.

Spoiler Warning - the ending felt very off

I really feel like the story and plot were just not up to the same standard as the last few books, with relatively lackluster character development and some dialogue that just seemed forced.
The new character of Jeremy seemed to be just shoved into the group even against Gunner's better judgement because he was persistent enough, which should have just made him even more suspicious of this admitted thief.
The end of the book also seemed to be rather contrived, with Gunner making a decision out of fear of death, while the choice he made could clearly lead to a cycle of death and rebirth against his will.

Worst book ending

If you’ve read the series thus far you expect the young adult fiction appeal and some cheesy tropes. But the whole book leads up to the dumbest ending ever. It maybe would have been better if the author spent more time developing what happened. But in the end Not worth it, it’s too contrived.

Overall pretty good, but ends on an off note

Most of the book was pretty well done. Great performance, fairly engaging story. The last chapter really fell flat though. it felt rushed and compressed, like it ran ahead without me. This made me lose a great deal of interest. I'll still listen to the next one, but I'm glad it's not out yet, as I don't really feel like doing so right now.

Well, the narration was good, but the rest is...

This book was lacking quite a bit, if the price wasn't still $25 for the audiobook I probably wouldn't have as many complaints. At the end of the book, it had me thinking, is that really it? Knowing the quality of the last three books left me hoping for a similar quality, seeing the price tag had me expecting that same quality...

Warning spoiler alerts ahead!!
This guy that the author has perceived as some crazy dude shouting every day to a mostly unlistening stream of people walking past, having seen no real support around him, somehow now has the backing of this crazy powerful group of people that can take over a whole arena and all the guards for a period longer then two hours, just makes the story seem weak. Don't get me wrong, I love the story overall but this last book is disappointing. Gunner didn't use his arcane blade even once thoughout the book, even while he was fighting in an arena!?!?!? Then he didn't use his boiling blood in the last fight when he saw his low health, and it took him far too long to understand what was going on. He usually doesn't come off quite that clueless.

overall story was good

performance was a bit lackluster. really wish the performer would put a bit more oomph into it. There's a part where they are yelling to each other across a mountain top and the voices stayed same as if they were right next to each other.

Good book with an awful ending

An otherwise good book that was almost completely ruined by an awful ending. I understand the desire to leave the main character in load of trouble at the end of every book, but he should at least get there through a set of decisions that are in character.

From hero to zero 101

I don't think I ever saw a worst ending, I'm baffled. Book suicide. After rewriting this review several times I conclude that my vocabulary does not have the words to express my overwhelming disappointment towards the ending of this book.

MC is a dumbass

The main character makes some really dumb decisions turns into a drug addict out of nowhere to move the plot along and then moves on like nothing happened.
