Publisher's Summary

The thrilling conclusion to The Gam3 prequel trilogy! 

After failing to take down the United World Government, Alan is a wanted fugitive on Earth. With nowhere else to go, he leads the Black Rose guild into the Abyss Labyrinth. But hidden agendas thrive within the mercenary guild, and Alan soon discovers larger forces at play. 

The Game is a war for survival, and a solo victory is virtually impossible - Alan needs to pick a side. But what does winning even mean in the Game? Will Alan be just another sacrificial pawn, or can he find a path to success? 

Note from the author: The Gam3 will be on an indefinite hiatus while a new story is in the works; but more stories with Alan are definitely in the future!

Cosimo please write more!

This was a good ending to a great series!

Cosimo has created a world that I want to know more about, and because his world is fairly unique, I have no other material to read that will scratch my itch!

This book easily is one of my top recommendations for someone interested in litrpg.

To get the small criticisms out of the way, I didn't absolutely love this book's last few chapters, and sometimes I think the plot felt forced, but in the end I really enjoyed each second reading this series, and now I'm so sad it's over that I'm seriously considering writing my own fan fiction for the first time. Cosimo, please keep writing!

Great job Nick Podehl, amazing work as usual.

Turnabout

The story had me pulled in entirely. The world was amazing, the feeling of insignificance felt, and the desire to succeed inspiring.

This series is one of the first audiobooks I have bought and I found the voice acting and story perfectly in tune.

*spoilers ahead*


The final section has less focus on the combat, and arguably goes to great lengths to develop the character of Alan greatly. His personal conflicts are weighed methodically between his two AIs as he loses one and befriends another. This final section definitely showed Alan’s growth towards his own independence.

Although the story of Alan will undergo a “long hiatus”, I wish the author the best of luck in his next series and I will be there as well. I sincerely await with bated breath for the continuation of this series.

Fantastic and intense

What a story. What a game. It’s like you could have college level courses to study the complexities and implications of this series. Must listen to it again.

The suggestion by Lambda the AI to Alan to make friends and develop relationships is what raises the 4 Star I gave to Book 2 up to a 5 Star for this book.

Keep it up Cosimo. Well done.

No you can't end it there!

Well its another one of those books that sinks in their hooks. pulling you into the character, make you enjoy and love this character. Just... to slap you so hard with a plot twist that makes you scream out, "NOOOOOOOO, you can't end it there. NOOOO..... but I want to know more." (as a single tear runs down my face) Again this was another amazing book By Nick Podehl, I just hopes he doesn't keep waiting too long for the sequel

Great Start to Series but Crap Ending!

I very much enjoyed the 1st tow books. But third was a real let down and wasted end to an otherwise good story. I wish it had ended better.

Don't. Let the story end @ book 2

This one flew by. Felt rushed. A lot of weapon stats to fill word count. The ending was ... horrible. I mean, if he left a way out, I'll skip the next installment of Adam Ownage.

Amazing

I have listened to over 200 LitRpg audio books in the past 2 years and this book is my favorite by far.

The author abandoned his game.

Well, it could have been great, but it’s very apparent that the author threw in the towel while writing this and rushed to a conclusion, even if it meant abandoning story arcs, characters, and resolution. Even so, this series is by far one of the best LitRPG offerings out there. Cosimo Yap is a gifted author and storyteller, and unlike many self-published books, especially in the LitRPG genre, this reads like it was professionally edited and released by a publisher. It’s a shame the author gave up on the story, but it’s better than the alternative of continuing something that an author doesn’t enjoy writing, because that always translates over to the reading experience. I hope we get a chance to enter Alan’s world again if Cosimo Yap puts his heart back into writing it. It’s a stellar LitRPG offering that is one of only a very few in the genre that can actually contend with the well done books of the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genre as a whole.

75% Awesome

I've really enjoyed listening to The Gam3, my favorite lite-rpg series of all time. Alan's fight against the system, taking thrilling gambles always kept me eager for more!

Unfortunately, the ending did feel rushed and forced with a desperate attempt for something mind-blowing.

Spoilers:
I could've sworn Eve was going to swoop in and help Allan at the end! Yap really just dropped her out of the story. So much for doing more help away from Allan.

Great book till the last few hours

This series is fantastic and I was so disappointed when I heard it was canceled. Then he started back up again and finished yay.

However you can tell pretty easily when he gave up on this series. He did the bare minimum to finish the book and the series. He completely left so much undone he basically pulled a last Jedi.

I would say this book is even worse than the story lines killed in that movie.
