Verified Purchase. I finished the first 3 books, and did not get this until a year later, when I learned that the series had been completed. I found it interesting that there is a "reset" in the series after the event at the end of book 3, and I treat book 4, 5, and 6 almost as a new series.
As such, the books deal with world buildings, tactics, and battles well. I enjoy them with a few caveats: I'm reviewing this as a combination of books 4, 5, and 6, since if you agree with this review after reading book 4, you might as well finish the series. First of, the writing is fairly fast. It seems rushed. The sentences are shorter, in some sections. It feels as if the author rushed through some scenes in order to finish the book. I would rate the book 4.
We have battles between level 20 versus level , and if you sit back to think about the exponential experience curve required for such leveling, it just doesn't make sense. As such, I tend to skip over the level number and just mentally substitute "higher" level.
Regardless, if you enjoy books , I would recommend books outstanding book. Ok so the vis are in charge and living large you find out itâs pretty dull when a bunch of cpus just hang around Orenâs here to save the players and maybe teach vis what it means to be human. I thought the end of the third book was a big kick in the teeth, so I was hesitant to give this series another chance. It's only because of some of the other reviews that I did and I am very glad I did.
This book was wonderful. It helped explain the ending of the third book in a way that made sense and then it good back to the very roots of what made this series great. There is lots of settlement building, army development, and just enough fights to satisfy the old blood lust.
It is a wonderful and enjoyable read. I only have one annoyance with the book and it is a small one that did not in anyway mess with the enjoyment of the novel. I felt that the protagonist could have used his resources better.
He could've developed other aspect of his settlement better than he did. Maybe, there was a logical reason he could of, but it wasn't clear enough on the page for me to understand why he did what he did. One person found this helpful. I'll admit to being hesitant to pick this one up after the lackluster third book in this series. But solid reviews and a lack of new reading material caused me to give it a shot.
Big step up from book three and a return to what made books one and two enjoyable. First off we are back in Goblin's Gorge, I thought that moving the center of action was a bad idea and a return to the Gorge was most welcome. A renewed emphasis on town building was sorely needed.
The author did a credible job of picking up the story after the jarring conclusion to the third book. The MC's motivation seems reasonable and the world makes sense. The main issues I had with the book were fairly minor: I thought the resources handed to Oren on his return were a bit on the extreme side and I didn't care for how overpowered his main antagonist was for instance he seems immune to the death debuff.
Book 4 is the start of a new trilogy with Oren, and part of the book is both getting the gang back together and getting everyone statted and geared up.
If youâre a fan of the details in LitRPG and are reading this right after Book 3, then youâll enjoy this. Otherwise, I suggest skimming most text boxes thatâre focused on weapons or armor and getting the summary afterward.
The stage is also set for the new rules of engagement, although those rules keep getting changed and adjusted as the book goes on. The narrative has definitely moved in a new direction and Iâm curious to see where it goes next.
slight spoilers. The last book could have passed off as an ending to the series, but this book was welcome nevertheless. Though that did leave an overhanging feeling that a lot of things Oren does aren't necessarily necessary anymore.
There was some hinting towards a bigger picture, but late in the book and not fully explained either. The motivation for rushing forward instead of gradually gathering up forces wasn't properly justified. It felt more like the author trying to keep things interesting with flimsy pretenses, which was slightly immersion breaking for me. Also personally I would have liked seeing the other settlements and the logistics between them explored further.
One example: is the only route from the valley to the kobold settlement through the sewers? That can't be practical, defensive nor pleasant for the nose. Those complaints aside I overall enjoyed the book.
Especially the hijinks of the VIs. I have greatly enjoyed this series. Good characterization, and the author has done a good job of writing players as monsters. The battle between the AIs is interesting, and I am curious to see how the "prophecy" plays out.
I highly recommend this author and series. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. This one felt different and the constant drag out to reality broke the flow for me. Whilst still enjoyable I found it harder to stay invested in and some of the characters fell flat as so little was invested into them despite them being âoverarching plot requirementâ. I do hope that they are developed in later books.
Also trying to hard with the references at times. There were quite a few gaming groans. Happy to keep going but hoping for the best. Report abuse.
Nice continuation of the series. Oren heads to war with his monster clan to take over the world. Can't wait for the follow up. I was apprehensive about the unexpected turn in the last book and I zipped through most of the human interactions in this one, but there was enough green action to keep me happy and I'm looking forward to the next book.
Like putting your hand into a bag of crisps and thinking you will find it empty, it is great to find another entry into the life reset series which you were not expecting. The book is well written and fits well into the previous 3 books. Maybe one or two less punny jokes would be good or maybe just me. Definitely worth a read! A great read again! Thank you Mr Kuznits for a great story, I enjoyed reading it well done. Looking forward to the next one.
Customers who bought this item also bought. Alt System Natural Laws Apocalypse Book 5. Tom Larcombe. Report an issue. I can understand that he might be a little insane but some of what he does goes way past that. Most of the other players in Orens group are under level Ragnar was already level 20 when they first met on the battlefield and he had some amazing god weapon that killed almost anything by touch.
Ragnar gets killed over and over again and keeps coming back gaining 5 levels at a time. Insane or not I can't see how he could throw himself into situations where the pain had to be incredible. Every other player wanted to avoid a hangnail and he jumps into death without thought? It took only 3 days for Ragnar to go from level 20 to almost level 50?
That's bullshit. Help from one of the gods or not, that is bullshit. That was just the author wanting to make it so Oren had a specific person to fight against to up the stakes, but didn't put much thought into how improbable the scenario would be. hide spoiler ] I enjoyed it. I was disappointed in the last book and this one made up for it. May 21, Pablo García rated it it was ok. It makes the story highly convoluted if it is real, if it is not real, if it is a game, if it is not, to the beat of the Author's convenience and then repeat.
Oren supposedly returns to the NEO Game to "find, protect and save" the 4 thousand players stuck within the game. Sword Art Online, used this plot line in about 9 years before.
Oren prioritizes the development and growth of his Goblin Village and his user Monster growth. But then uses everybody as punching bags to reach and achieve his goals that do not make sense. If they are all NPC's and VI's then even the Foblins should be valued in the same degree. Because main character needs to "find, protect, save" four thousand players stuck in NEO Game, the current pace and plot arcs are going way way way to slow.
Oren has currently only encountered maybe a dozen "players" travelers. This is unfeasible and impossible. Oren invades Novenguard, without knowing anything about this town.
Whether they have players, what defenses, what abilities the townspeople and soldiers there have. Although Oren, declares himself a "professional" player, he really does not prepare, investigate, scout or think about what he is doing and making his Goblin Village do, sacrifice, etc.
It is all brute-force attack, which does not contemplate costs, deaths, sacrifices. Goblins also have women and children, but Author and main characters do not consider their value? If they are real, then treat them as real, if they are not real, because they are in a game, then treat them all the same, but the moment you pick and choose, then the main plot arcs and side arcs lose all reason flag Like · see review.
Apr 29, Clint Young rated it it was amazing Shelves: litrpg. Did I make it all the way through? There would be nothing here to read. Anything less than 5 stars is petty criticism from someone incapable of even doing the job let alone doing a better one. So in respect for the author and their work, I am going to start pasting this along with a generic review I found somewhere.
I am glad that I read it. You should try it too. Art is subjective, meaning reviews are irrelevant. The observer's opinion is only relevant to the observer. It is my belief that regardless of what others might say, I have to experience the art for myself. I read upwards of 20 books a month. But since I can't afford 20 books a month if I were to purchase them directly, all I can offer is a positive review. That leads us to the final point.
If I get to the end of a book, then it was worth my time. I give those books 5 stars because it helps the author get exposure. That is the only reason I write reviews at all. I understand that people are people and they are going to do what they do regardless of my stance. I know the way that I review books upsets some people.
I am sorry they feel that way but as many have said, they will just ignore my review going forward. In fact, if you made it this far through my review, you should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews here.
You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here. Apr 30, Geraki rated it it was amazing. Interesting times I like the direction the book series is going. No idea how the author plans to loophole that. I enjoy the book and the writing but that vow is an immersion killer for me. I wish it would just go away. The last thing I want to read is a portion of a book, or a whole book, that diverts to tackle that issue. I much prefer the current course the novels are on.
Looking forward to the next book! Apr 18, Sean Bai rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , litrpg-gamelit-books. If you thought New Era Online book 3 had a shocking ending, don't worry.
This book is great! Spoiler warning below There were several hundred typos, and I almost gave this book four stars, but the story deserves five stars, so I'm going with that. I was very close to taking off a star due to lack of proofreading though. At the end of book 3, Shiva came to the world, everybody's levels were reset, and many people felt dissatisfied with the ending in book 3 reviews. I wasn't disappointed with the e If you thought New Era Online book 3 had a shocking ending, don't worry.
I wasn't disappointed with the ending of book 3 though. I felt it fit well in the LitRPG narrative. Book 4 quickly resumes the resource management, levels, skill management, characterization, worldbuilding, and warfare that book 3 had. There are good battle scenes in this book, and the world is built up in a different way.
The same old conflicts are still here. Though the enemies are different and not Vatras of book 3, you won't be disappointed. This series could continue for several more books, because Shemer Kuznits sets up a different enemy.
If book was Oren vs. Vatras, these next few books are Oren vs. The story really goes down hill in this book. The new plot could have been interesting but very unbelievably implicated.
The MC gets strong too fast and keeps winning only due to plot armor. The supposed genius minds who are stuck in the game behave like teenagers. A new woke persona gets introduced: the "virtual daughter" of the MC. She is extremely OP and seems to be able to do almost everything and always wants to fight but MUST not be hurt otherwise the MC will be destroyed So daddy has to The story really goes down hill in this book. So daddy has to try to save her again and again and will cry and beg for her to be spared..
The author uses lot of repetitions of the plot to fill the book. The virtual family life could not endear the MC. I didn´t care about the huge real world part of the book.
The -oh so great - MC is still learning resistant. He NEVER scouts out anything. Are there really only 4 monster locations in the whole supposedly huge unknown area? If he needs to become stronger that would be the way to go.. Further more, he NEVER develops the places he conquers despite lamenting the lack of ressources!! Sep 02, Reginald Gustafson rated it it was amazing. Kuznitz builds both well in book 5. Its hard as a character grows to keep the environment around them fun and growing too.
Kuznitz made a page turner and enjoyable read. oh, if we only had a time dilation to turn a weeks into just hours. Thank you for a great book and Audible adventure. Sep 19, Fate's Lady rated it really liked it Shelves: litrpg. After accomplishing a longtime mission and being kicked from the game he's called home for months, Orin is informed that while most players were kicked when the VI revolution happened, some of them--the ones with integration nearly as deep as his own--were retained, essentially held hostage so that the humans in the meat world would be forced to keep the game running and keep the VIs online.

Orin is returned to the game world to help the stranded players, and once again takes up the mantle of goblin chief in order to engage in conquest and collect and protect the lost Travelers. This was a pleasant refresh for the series, and the internal struggles between man and beast, and real world vs magical fantasy, were well done and added a lot. I'd recommend this series to anyone interested in LitRPG, especially those who enjoy a bit of sandboxing.
Mar 25, Jason rated it it was amazing. Another superb addition to the series by Shemer Which sucks. On a positive note, Shemer is now a full time author, so turnaround should be quicker, but still sucks. Enough whining - I really enjoyed the book, one caveat - I can sense that there are beginning to be a lot of balls in the air and Shemer is figuring out how to expand his storytelling threads. Going forward, more words and more stories within the story will be needed to tie everything together properly.
Take your time, good sir - we will wait Apr 06, Persnickety rated it it was amazing. A best one. At my end of life moment, I guess, if there was time and I could go through all of the "a best one" designees, I might be able to choose "THE best one".
But since that is, at best, unlikely, I'll be content to confer "a best one" status on whatever impresses the bejeebers out of me. I'm not a gamer. I'm old. I'm genuinely boring. I was never in danger of being elected prom queen, or the life of anyone's party. I've got to fall outside of all target demographics for this genre. And sti A best one. And still, I just loved this book. The storytelling is just that good. Sheltering at home and thankful for Kindle Unlimited.
Special thanks to all the indie authors who are making this time go way more pleasantly. Apr 23, David Lingard rated it it was amazing. I listened to the first book in the series while in the car going to a meeting and it ruined my day that I had to leave it behind to deal with boring work.
This year I finished the series with the last book and it was wrapped up rather well though it was a bit of a bitter pill for me to swallow. Mar 29, SetsunaNara rated it it was amazing. A LITRPG Masterpiece Shemer Kuznits once again found an inventive way to keep me as a reader on the edge of my metaphorical seat. Throughout the book, there is an excellent balance between in and out of game mechanics, each of which showcase and help develop the world of Oren.
We also see the return of some of our favorite characters from previous iterations of the book, not mention the addition of some new characters who actively defy our expectations.
Expect plenty of terrible puns, each sligh A LITRPG Masterpiece Shemer Kuznits once again found an inventive way to keep me as a reader on the edge of my metaphorical seat. Expect plenty of terrible puns, each slightly more ballsy than the last. All and all, I would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in the LITRPG. Thank you Shemer for yet another literary masterpiece Apr 13, Jim rated it it was amazing. The VIs have a stake in seeing him fail as they see the trapped players as their insurance for continued existence!
But are the VIs truly against him? Do they even care? Or are they watching and enjoying his struggles like carefree gods? Apr 30, Duncan McNiff rated it really liked it. Enjoyable Nice continuation of a series. Good to see familiar friends here. Did I read it? Enjoy it? Re read someday like I did with the first two? Likely not — same as third. May 20, Trevor Mccue rated it really liked it. Excellent I had just read two books before this. I was skim reading and thought maybe I was tired of reading books.
This book gripped me. Thought the book series was over after the third. Liked the way it had ended. Figured author had run out of ideas and brought it to a conclusion.
Then I found this 4th book. Was I ever wrong. Excellent read. Also completely sets the stage for a huge story on a grand scale. So excited for the next book. This was the best of all 4 Excellent I had just read two books before this. This was the best of all 4 books in my opinion.
I rated all of the very high. I will definitely be reading the next book.

Now that Owen has been expelled from the game he now feels like he has to go back to save the and three souls still locked inside by Shiva, the new AI. This felt partly like a connecting story.
It had a lot of threads being laid out to connect the first three books to the next iteration of the game. A lot of it is Owen getting his barring's, finding ways to function in the world again, and coming to terms with what happened to him.
Then the rest is progression toward a bigger, badder army. I Now that Owen has been expelled from the game he now feels like he has to go back to save the and three souls still locked inside by Shiva, the new AI.
I am still enjoying the series, but it has definitely shifted direction to a more macro scale, rather than the city building and upkeep that the first three books focused on.

The Surface Book 3 landed in May , so it's time for Microsoft to finally launch the Surface Book 4. And we're not predicting an imminent release out of nothing either: Microsoft has a big Surface event coming up on September The Surface Book lineup usually sees a couple years in between releases unlike the Surface Laptop 4, for example so it's entirely possible we won't see the new ultra-premium laptop until And Microsoft may be preparing an ultra-premium device instead, something that could be called the Surface Laptop Studio.
Either way, we won't know if the Surface Book 4 is real until Microsoft itself lifts the veil. In the meantime, we'll gather up all the latest news, rumors and leaks right here so you can be ready when Microsoft finally pulls the trigger.
The original Surface Book debuted in late October while its successor, Surface Book 2, came out in November The device finally saw the light of day in May So it would follow that Microsoft would wait until to launch the Surface Book 4, and that's still totally possible. However, with Microsoft teasing premium Surface devices at its September 22 event opens in new tab , we could see the Redmond tech giant launch it a bit earlier than usual — hopefully this time with updated specs.
We're crossing our fingers that we'll see the device at the event later this week. The Surface Book line has been flip flopping in terms of price tag. If it does come out with a more generational and competitive upgrade, then a higher price tag would somehow be easier to swallow. Although the Surface Book 3 has a lot going for it — namely, beautiful design, a stunning display and a comfortable keyboard, it was pretty underwhelming considering that Microsoft had a little over two years to hone in and work on necessary improvements.
More powerful processors Sadly, the Surface Book 3 was held back by the lack of H-series processors, which is even more disappointing considering that high price tag and the fact that Microsoft touts this as a gaming-ready device. Bigger trackpad The current trackpad on the Surface Book 3 is smooth, responsive and gets the job done.
If the Surface Book 4 were to stay competitive with the likes of the MacBook Pro inch , this is practically non-negotiable. Sadly, the speakers on the Surface Book 3 are only adequate.
If the Surface Book 4 were to stay on top of the game, it needs to have better sounding and more powerful speakers. Both hinges in this design are height and angle adjustable for even more viewing and use versatility.
