To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The authors own words for the final battle is a pretty good summary for a story that had a promising setting but quickly ends up like a teenage boys wet dream. It progressively gets worse as it heads towards the end so if reading something full of plot holes and pointless drama is for you then read this.
This is unnecessarily long winded. A whole lot of simple editing mistakes irritating too. Just as small examples, the murder chicken was named Daphne in the last book. She's Daisy in this one. Also the sentence "these were just a reminder of a world long ago" all 3 of these books take place in less than 3 months. Really? Just so many silly things. Glad it's over. I couldn't read more of the same in a forth book.
This is a book that keeps you on tender-hooks if you have invested in the main characters. Humanity struggles against almost insurmountable odds, being beaten down, suffering heart breaking casualties, but gaining small victories along the way. It will be interesting to see how the relationships between the various alien factions and humanity develop. Ready for the next book. Recommended
Slightly different from other irlrpg books, not relying as much on character stats, keeps the story flowing quickly and the action grander. Each book is better than the last keeping you reading late into the night. Looking forward for the rest of the series so I can see how the story and characters grow.
This book had so much potential and squandered it. I quit the book at 65% complete after the ENTIRE book up to that point was a constant battle. Everyone attacks the humans, slaughters them, enslaves them, nobody cares. The MCs are the only ones safe. Also, way too much switching between view points. I found myself trying to skip forward to get back ro the main story, but I couldn't even figure out which viewpoint was supposed to be the main story. I really enjoyed the first two books, but I guess the author ran out of ideas and decided to just write a 100,000 word fight scene.
Detailed melee gets old to me, but that's easily skimmed. The characters are sweet, the relationships progress. Everything is a little to simplistic--the races are rather one-size-fits-all, frex--that and the long-winded battles are why this is a 3 for me. I've about hit my limit at 3of these, at least for the time being. But these 3 were worth the money, fer sure.
Overall a fun read. The fights are a bit overly fantastic. Humans dropping dead left and right, but always more, yet?
Orcs are 40k orc clones. Dwarfs are Warhammer dwarfs with spaceships. I glazed over the Elf and Oberon connection, but it's a bit on the nose too. Seeders are basically Tyranids. All a bit to close to call chance. Book of gruges? Teeth for currency? Come on...
Book has a lot of fight scenes. So avoid as a bedtime story. They all last forever and roll one into the next with haste.
