Publisher's Summary

I often caught myself pushing away the old memories of my past life. More and more, my past self’s hold on me lessened, allowing me to become the person I wanted to be in this world. But at this moment, I found myself wishing to turn back to the old me - to the cold, rational me that had suppressed his emotions in exchange for having no vulnerability that could be used against him.

Arthur Leywin knew well the cold terror of war. Yet, in his past life as King Grey, he had never lost a friend, mentor, or loved one; he had none to lose. Now, though, Arthur must accept that even those closest to him must take up arms to defend their homes as the enemy force seeks new methods to strike at the heart of Dicathen. 

In his quest to stop the approaching army, Arthur must travel to the dwarven kingdom of Darv, gain mastery of the four elements, battle some of the Vritra’s mightiest champions, and overcome a grievous betrayal. Meanwhile, visions of his past life are surfacing with startling frequency, forcing Arthur to contend with the decisions of his past as he struggles to retain a vision of his future.

There’s Always That One

So I love this series and have burned though the first 5 books in under a month and will finish out the series. That being said there is always one book in the series that kinda sucks. They need a filler book to set the scene, develop characters, have the training montages. This book happens to be it. Still interesting but boring. The next book I’m sure will pick it up.

really wierd way to end a book

by far the wierdest ending to any books in this series. nothing happens the last like 5 chapters it's only setup for the next book. very anticlimactic. rest of the book was solid but it didn't amount to anything. bit let down the rest of the series was better

Weakest book thus far

Book is literally 70% training, 20% flashbacks, 10% story progression. Travis's narration is amazing as always but the material has been getting progressively worse since Book 3.

Agree with several other reviews

I do apologize that I'm repeating what others have mentioned. This book was 70% training, 20% flashback, and 10% forward progress.

I'm hoping this is used to build something into the flashbacks. It's nice to have some backstory but we're technically in Book 6 and in my opinion if you were going to explain younger years.... Do it earlier on? Maybe books 1-3?

I have enjoyed the previous books, a lot. However, this is the first book I didn't binge it like I do Netflix.

Only Read if you've listened to the book:
I really enjoyed the fact our main character (MC) doesn't win every battle.

However, if you spend many years with people that'd destroy the world if they fight and who refuse to train "lesser beings" how can you remotely have issues fighting other "lesser beings" after? He seems to get winded very quickly. Wasn't one of the lessons was to conserve? Use little power but get maximum effect? blah, blah, ya know? The montage of him training was cool but he seems to have learned nothing. Often even going against their explicit directions... several times

Anyway, I'm wondering where we're going. I gave it 4 Star ⭐ because it is a good book but isn't good as good as the previous ones.

15 hrs of filler, 11 minutes of new material

I pre-purchased this book and was really excited to listen to the newest book in the series. It began slowly and stayed that way for most of the book. I found myself drifting off and not even listening to the book most of the time. This is one of those books that felt like the publishers were telling the author to make a deadline and he just filled it with a bunch of junk to meet that deadline. I struggled to keep listening.
This could have been book 5.1.1. This entire book was pointless flashbacks and boring details about training for 15 hours. The last 11 minutes were the only actual progression of the storyline. It was I will be reading the reviews before buying the next book in the series. This one is going back for a credit

A slump in the series

It’s so unfortunate that the series has hit this rough patch of an installment! There isn’t a clear narrative thread, but you can see that the author is trying out new writing techniques with his flashbacks, so I am hopeful that they will continue to find their voice and that the strong intrigue and growth in the initial portion of the series is found again in some form. On the other hand, Travis Baldree is crushing it as always in terms of bringing the characters to life

Not fully sure how I feel, but it’s not great.

Waited the entire book for something to happen. Didn’t he just come back from training? Now he needs more because he’s still underpowered?? /boggle

Best resurrection series ever

These books keep getting better and better. The story is filled with intense action, heart aching twist, and such deep emotional character development that leaves me wanting more. I couldn't put this book down even if I wanted to. I'm already ready reading the next book online and it keeps getting me hooked into the series with each chapter that comes out. I highly recommend you go online and read the chapters that are already out plus the comic version of the series has really great artwork in it. So spread the love about this wonderful series and help keep it going!

Backstory

Just be aware, this is backstory. At times it felt like listening to third graders arguing.
