Publisher's Summary

Mahan's ready for new adventures - just as the gaming world of Barliona thought it was about to reenter its old comfortable rut. The winds of the Dark Forest have finally died down; Altameda has recognized its new owner while Geranika is nursing new schemes of global destruction.

Would Mahan be happy with this predictable old life? We think not! New storylines, new monsters, new dungeons, and a new status: Our High Shaman hates the daily grind! He wants a new apprentice? Then he'd better find someone who has no right to summon Spirits. A new ship? It's going to be one of a kind! A new love? Well, we'll have to see, won't we?

Pissed Off!!! (5 stars)

It is not often that a book leaves you at such a cliff hanger that you are so angry you want to throw your phone and yell out loud at what just happened!!!!

This is an excellent series. The writing is great & what a roller coaster.

I am just super pissed at what happened, I call upon a herald, we need revenge!

broke my i pod

Would you listen to The Karmadont Chess Set again? Why?

probably but only if there is a book six

Who was your favorite character and why?

mayan because hes mayan

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Yen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

what the fuckitty fuck man that was so ruthless and cold that i broke my shit

Any additional comments?

i cannot believe mayan was so obtuse but then again not all hope is lost so hopefully book six will be filled with the best kind of revenge

Glad this is not the end!!!

What made the experience of listening to The Karmadont Chess Set the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed all of the books so far, I didn't care for the ending of book five but I am happy to report that as of right now there are two more books in this series that I know of

What did you like best about this story?

I have never felt sick to my stomach because of the ending of a book before but wow, after I recovered from it and had a day or two in which I could calm down I have to say that the ending is the most powerful ending I have ever read.

Any additional comments?

Don't be discouraged, this book will kick you in the teeth at the end but fear not because it still has two more to go.

heartbreaking... enthralling...

As with the first 4 books this series is wonderful. Way of the Shaman, Awaken Online, and Daily Grind are three of the best litRPG books I've ever seen but Mahanenko has a way about him that makes the book seem to never end. it traps you in and whenever you reach a point that seems to conclude it just keeps rolling on. The ending way a truly shocking conclusion whether you saw it coming or not but it still gives you that despite edge of hope to cling to and a fire to see where this goes next. All I can do now is wait impatiently for the already anticipated book 6.

I'm so angry!

Do you have any additional comments?

This book was more or less like the rest in the series except if felt rushed and was lacking in content with some of the other characters. The ending was far to much of a cliffhanger to leave off on and there is no real sign in the series if it will continue.

I must say however that the ending of this series makes me want to punch things, a lot, ALL THE THINGS!

So I suppose it was good in a negative emotional manner. I really want the series to continue and will continue reading if it does.

This should be the end

Predicable actions for 3 books. A Mayan getting dumber and dumber and growing a huge ego by each book. The last 20 minutes wrapped up nicely how GD dumb he was. He got taken for a ride in the real world and got tossed in Jail, so they did it again to him and he fell for it once more.

Plot conveniences added in for the shake of it. NO MMO has ever character had unbound artifacts or quest items that can simply taken from your inventory!!!! The developers would be tossed to the wolves.

I find it hard to say anything other than the end destroyed the book. I loved this series until that point.

Intense

I expected something from the reviews and flags given by the story, but it still surprised me and I feel half empty inside. A good book doesnt just invoke love. It encompases every emotion.
