Summary

The world teeters on the brink of destruction.

The people who should be saving the Earth ignore Jason Asano's warnings and choose to loot the house as it burns down around them. He lacks the strength to save the world himself, but resolves to do it anyway, impossible be damned. 

The impossible, in this case, means seizing a power that no mortal should touch. It's a choice from which there is no turning back, and marks Jason's first step into a wider cosmos that he is not yet ready to face.

Holding the fate of two worlds in his hands, Jason must decide for himself what home truly means.

Lazy, looping, and doesn't go anywhere.

Short. Repeats the same descriptions and cruxes over and over. It's also the shortest book of the series and this book could easily be half as long again if the author just stayed on point and only explained whatever the single time. I also have a serious issue with the direction (or lack of) the series has been suffering with in the last two books. Sure, the character has something he's meant to be chasing but it's barely heading to it or suddenly rushed. This one has been a bit of a joke.

Honestly, it feels like the author is artificially extending the life of the series to its detriment.

it felt rushed and....

Well... the books have nearly halved in size, I found the plot lacking the detail it has had previously and it just feels like they are rushing towards the end, eager to get there but I feel like we will be disappointed when we do.

I love the series and I am eager to carry on but I am enjoying the books less as they progress.

Real Disappoinment

There's almost no story progression or character development in this. I could have comfortably been a 2 hour section of the end previous book. I would also like some sort of heads up if you are going to have 2 hours of epilogue at the end like this book has. It was pretty lame to have what little story did happen just stop with 2 hours still to go.

Looking forward to next one despite not enjoying t

I was personally getting somewhat bored of Jason fighting cannon fodder enemies. Epilogue was very good and I'm glad this part of the story is coming to a conclusion.

Should of ended 2 books ago

The last few books was a struggle to get through. The series started amazingly but since they changed where they are... that's where it went down hill. Don't wanna go into detail because of spoilers.

.

Probably my least favourite book in the series. Felt like it was filled with unnecessary fluff. Could without any issue remove a 3rd of the book.

Don't get me wrong, I still liked the book. Very, very excited for the next installment.

Hooked for life

I absolutely love the universe and the characters! Already I’ve listened to book 1-4 about five-six times, book 5 about three times and book 6 twice. I’m going to start over again, it’s just so good!

Even though this book was much shorter than previous ones, it finally managed to finish of Jason’s time on earth. Heath miller has a wonderful voice for this and is perfect. This book picks right from where last finished and I hope it does that again in the next as I would have loved to have found out what happened to Gary and the other meeting Dawn. Overall, this was very well written though a bit short compared to others in the series. Can’t wait for the next instalment

amazing

i have struggled with the genre in the past as it always seems like a good idea but is never executed well however he who fights with moster is a perfect example of how how it should be done

It felt like half of a book.

I’ve raved about this whole series so far, but this one wasn’t at all what I expected. This felt rushed. It was almost like a filler episode. It’s got to be hard to set up events as well as this author has, this was like listening to two parts of the series in fast forward. If anything this would have been better released at the end of book 5, not a separate book entirely.

I ultimately enjoyed it because Heath Miller is flawless this whole series. As a whole though, this to me felt like it was supposed to be the end of book 5, but they couldn’t decide how to slice this part of the series up. The first 3 part of the series was seamless, this wasn’t terrible, just odd. It was almost like he got bored writing about Jason on earth or something and threw book 6 in the microwave and said “screw it”.

The Book Leading Nowhere

No story. No character growth. Travis Deverell definitely should have left out 90% of those scenes. It was just filler. It was interesting filler, but none of it moved the story forward.

The end of book 5 left Jason ready to tie up a few loose ends, then head to another planet. That's what I expected in book 6.

Instead, he wrote an entire book to tie up a few loose ends. He could have done it with one chapter. What a useless addition to an otherwise stellar series.

Read books 7, 8, and 9 right now!

I was low key pissed this book was under 16 hours. My entire disposition changed when I found out the reason. I wasn't aware this was a web series, or even what a web series was. I sat down at my computer desk and looked it up . I was hit with a huge dopamine rush, and sat stunned. In a web series chapters are released weekly... and there are 213 more chapters to read RIGHT NOW!

I love the performance audio books provide, and will still buy every book coming out in this series. I am glad I started with the audio books, only recently switching to the web series. I can hear the way each character is speaking while reading. I never would have gotten the various accents right. The accents aren't just icing on the cake to me. It's the medley of flavors and textures that elevate a store bought cake to something you would get in a Michelin star restaurant.

This audiobook did feel like half a book to me, other reviews aren't wrong. Having now continued the story through the web series I can understand why the book stopped where it did. Luckily for everyone avidly devouring this series on audible you don't have to wait months for another book. You can continue your journey with Jason today!

Missed Opportunity, looking forward to better.

I love this series, enough so that I overlook the tireless political diatribe. However, this story arc with the MC on Earth started so well and then fizzled out at the end. I won't spoil things in the story but the choices made by important people in the last few books, while justifiable and plausible, just feel like such a let down. It probably says a lot that the part of the book I enjoyed the most was the Epilogue chapters. The hook at the end of the book is fine, if blatantly obvious, but after a real trudge through the author seemingly just trying up loose ends, it rings weak and hollow. Book 5 was decent, I was hoping this one would get us bad to Great, but the best I can say is that I hope the story picks back up with the next one or that's going to be the end of the series for me personally. Narrator did an awesome job as always!

The ending

When I first looked at the length of the book, I was a little concerned, I was even more concerned with the length of the End Credits. The last 5 minutes of the End Credits, you know and don't know what's going to happen. You want to know more and the ending leaves you wanting more. I can't wait for Book 7, keep up the awesome work Shirtaloon!!!

Waiting impatiently

Oh my God I'm so excited! I've been waiting for this book for months and months. I hope they get back to the other planet inthis one. I missed the gang from the other world. This is my favorite book series ever

Awesome

This just came out, and I am so eager for the next one. It ended on such a high note.
This book is a bit more focused on a few specific events, dedicating a lot of time to them, but they are loaded with amazing details and what is most likely huge plot foreshadowing.
If you have reached this point in the series, this one is a must read. Each arc is set into trilogies, so be ready for some amazing big reveals and a lot of Jason being Jason.

Oh and keep an eye out for Tom Bombadil

only half a book sort of.....

I love the series. and have been let down by this book. its really only half a book and the entire book is pretty much a repeat of the beginning of the book repeating itself with a bunch of useless introspection we have already been over again and again to add filler. if u read chapters 1 through 10 u have read about 90% of the book. very disappointed.

Always look forward to these

The narrator always adds to this series for me. Our boy goes through a lot, some heart wrenching moments in this one.
