Publisher's Summary

Lee has barely established his foothold in the kingdom of Birnefeld, and yet enemy forces are already rushing to attack. Almost all of the other Heralds have been stamped out of existence by the anti-religious zealot King Ramen, and now that the ruthless rule of the empire has turned his sights toward the newly conquered realm, and started marching a massive army easily capable of crushing the entire kingdom beneath their feet straight toward Lee's doorstep. With no other choice, Lee has to turn to the nemesis who plagued his dreams, the Mistress of Shadows, for help. Now, with everything on the line, Lee has to race against the clock to gather the last remaining world stones and finally finish the gods’ cruel game and close out the final chapter of War Aeternus before King Ramen puts an end to the faithful.
 

This Gamelit Litrpg fantasy novel was written by Charles Dean, author of the Bathrobe Knight series, the Merchant of Tiqpa series and the Heroic Villain series as well.

All good things must come to an end

This is the ending of the War Aeternus series, and it did not disappoint. After reaching the conclusion and seeing how everything tied together, I go the sense that Charles had the entire story planned out from the beginning. More than anything else this story felt final. There were no loose ends, everything had closure.

I've come to love the characters of Lee, Jade, Ling, and Miller. IMO, these are some of the genre's most unique characters, and I feel like they've gotten the ending they deserved. Nearly every major character in this series has evolved and changed in some meaningful way. Lee is nothing like the same character who he was in the first book. Neither is Jade, or Ling. Miller has been pretty constant, but I wouldn't have expected otherwise.

It's a bit sad to know that I'll never be able to return to the kingdom of Spicy Chicken Noodle Surprise, never see Miller tear out a man's spinal column through his eye socket and never hear Jade describe every mundane aspect of existence in terms of anime and video games. But all good things must eventually come to an end, and these characters deserved closure.

The narration was top notch. Jeff Heyes does a brilliant job as both Jade and Miller. His impressions of those two characters never failed to leave me in proverbial stitches.

If you've already come this far, do yourself a favor and listen to End of the Faithful. If you haven't started the series yet, I can wholly recommend it, particularly now that it has come to a definitive conclusion. All I can say is that you're in for an exciting ride.

Hmmm

It was very good. But as a lot of writers do, I felt like it was ended because he didn’t want to write it anymore. Left a lot of things unsaid.

Well

Honestly think I should have stopped at the end of the last book. The performance was great but the story was lacking. All the twists were extremely telegraphed and the ending left me wanting. The author clearly tried to solve the harem conundrum but it just ended up feeling wrong.

But that's my opinion and if you have already gotten this far in the series you should listen to this one. Every story deserves an ending and this one is solid no matter my own personal sway.

Too Soon, Man....

Why the author chose to end the story like this is beyond me. It's all crammed in together with no second thought to anything.
Really disappointed with it.

Felt rushed

I want to start by saying that I enjoyed this book and this series. With a few hours to go, I really thought that there had to be another book because there was so much to resolve, but it did finish. Due to that, it felt rushed at the end (not bad, just rushed).
