Publisher's Summary

His name is Hadjar Darkhan, and he still follows the call of his dragon heart.

The War Games ended a few months ago, and the various generals of Darnassus, led by the emperor, realized that just the disciples of the best martial arts schools and even the smaller, lesser schools wouldn't be able to strengthen the Darnassian Army enough to prepare it for what was coming. A war was on the horizon, and every weapon would matter, so losing even the most inexperienced warriors was an unthinkable prospect.

The Empire had never prepared for battle on such a massive scale before. They'd gathered tens of thousands of Spirit Knights and hundreds of thousands of Heaven Soldiers in just a short time. But would that be enough to combat the countless hordes of the enemy? Or were these just the death throes of a once vast Empire?

Hadjar, whether he wanted to or not, would be part of this upcoming war. Moreover, his role might end up being far more significant than he'd originally assumed.

Before a decisive battle begins, he must plunge into a maelstrom of war preparations, which doesn't bode well for him....

Best Book 2021

If you haven't realized already, this is easily one of the greatest books of this year and a series that will make you question the talent of other authors. If you are looking to be just entertained for a while, this series isn't for you.
If you are looking to dive in to a world as complex as our own and character progression the likes of which is rare, you have found your next obsession. No pointless deaths, unnecessary sex, two dimensional characters, and skip worthy chapters.
For a lot of people, especially the ones who project modern culture onto fictional worlds, this is a brutal and unforgiving story that seems to just want you to be upset.
However, if you can let go of your biases and modern sensibilities and simply let your mind and heart be embraced by a magnificent adventure you won't look back with regret but look forward with excitement for the next chapter.

idk if I'm gonna continue with this series

every book is the same ...everybody talks a ton of shit, MC never gets any respect, absolutely everyone is angry n rude all the time ...like there is no way for ppl to communicate without fighting
The blending of cultivation and an AI is never fully realized ...it seemed like it was going to be an amazing fusion ...but it's all a tease they never actually do anything with it.

Also, the Narrator reads in same tone no matter what, no inflection ever!!!!
idk if it's just me, but it's really easy for the audiobook to turn into background noise ...so it's super easy to miss stuff, and u have to go back n try to pay attention. Some books/narrators grip u and u can't help but hang onto every word ...then there r books like this one that u want to love, try to love, n u it's supposed to be good ...but just falls flat

maybe one day I'll check in again, but I'm def not in any kind of rush to get the next book

I have really enjoyed this series

a great series that doesn't fizzle out when the main character gets to strong there is always a steady character progression as well as an ongoing story can't wait for the rest of the series

I never learn. (vague spoilers)

I somehow never learn







somehow every time I never expect some of these twists that the story makes. I get attached to a character, only for that character to die so suddenly I don't see it coming untill just before it happens. Well done Author, may you burn for the pain you cause us all, well done.

Excellent series

Love the series and can’t wait for the next installment. The continuous flashbacks make the story a little difficult to follow
