Publisher's Summary

What is it like for a small flap-eared goblin herbalist to play the role of the Dark Sovereign, the main antagonist for Boundless Realm's hundreds of millions of players? What is it like to find one's self the standard bearer for an army of man-eating giants, cyclops, skeletons, ghosts, and other hellspawn, who don't give a damn about their modest little ruler? 

Our hero didn't desire such an unenviable fate, but there is no way back now. He'll just have to tighten the straps and play the ghastly overlord to the innumerable hordes that now threaten all Boundless Realm. But the longer our hero plays, the better he understands that this world is much more complicated than it seems at first glance and he is just a pawn in someone else's game. And lots of things depend on whether he can figure all of it out in the short time he has left, including his own life.

definitely rushed...but I'll take it

I felt like the final battle was rushed to no end ...I mean come on be puts on the glorious legendary regalia and we dont get to hear about it in action...tsk tsk sad! and what happened with the war? wolf shows up and everyone just goes home? I mean I get it he is super OP with that set and all but damn too much was left out.

however I'm a sucker for a happy ending guess all good things come to an end this series was amazing and I am looking forward to more work by this author! thank you for a wonderful bright and imaginative story this has made top 5 litrpg for me!

Nice save and a great conclusion

It feels like Michael really thought this through. A great conclusion to a very good story. There was some weird parts with the dialouge but I blame translation, other than that it was really good, all of it.

Best spent credit in a long time!

Ever entertained

The whole series of books, from beginning to end, is incredibly engaging. Who knew that a lowly goblin herbalist could do so much!!

love it!

no, it's not the most complex story I've every read but this story truly is a fun romp. The whole series makes me feel like a kid reading my first exciting adventure series! Ooh, and shout out to the translator. Phenomenal job.

Ending felt a little rushed

No spoilers. I enjoyed listening to the entire series despite some of the qualms I had. When the series is coming to its conclusion, it feels like it's really building up and then the book is over. The end was all crammed into the last chapter and I felt that did the conclusion a little injustice. I was invested being 3 books in and I wanted to see it through to the end. I'm not disappointed that I picked this up.

Phenominal conclusion to a 5 book series

My favorite author in video game/scifi series has concluded his 5 book series without a satisfactory wrap up in and I hope he continues to write and come up with new works.

A must listen to book!
