Summary

Multiplying foes. A deadly city. And with no clear path to his goals, how will Michael survive Nexus?

Michael reaches Nexus, but finds advancing more challenging than he’d anticipated. Factions abound, allegiances shift, and separating truth from lies is harder than ever.

The line between friend and foe blurs, and Michael’s path grows murkier.

Nexus is a place of both opportunity and danger. Sitting at the heart of the world, the city is home to thousands—ordinary people, players, but Powers too. Can Michael remain free of their clutches, or will he become entangled in the Powers’ machinations?

Will Nexus be the death of Michael?

Follow Michael on his epic journey and find out!

That Cliff hanger!!

i loved it! we got to learn more about not just the dungeons but also the factions as well. the first half of the book is a bit slow burn as there is not much leveling up as Micheal finds his footing , but the second half...damn..and again that ending was criminal..i need more

Great book but...

This isn't the best book out there if you want a realistic(ish) main character. But, with that said, it is totally fun read and really enjoyable. It's a great book and follows an interesting plot, but considering the MC's low level, everything he encounters is far too easy. As someone who has played video games, beating someone a min of 50 lvs higher than yourself is virtually impossible. It can happen once in a while, particularly if you catch them by surprise, but generally you'll lose in a straight up fight.

The MC is OP and everyone is rubbish. He ignores a levelling gap because he's OP and continuously slaughters everyone. He doesn't find anything challenging and everything tends to go right (all of the time or they take a slight deviation).

I enjoy the fact that he wins. I like the MC's progress, his abilities and the world system. The simplicity isn't a deciding factor, for me it is a bonus...
But, I thought it best to raise this for others.

I will be continuing on with the series! I can't wait so see how he develops in the next book! 4.5/5

An excellent solo player adventure

This is one of my favourite series. Its very rare for a character to play solo and stick to it, I really like that he does.

The world building, magic system and exploration are all well done, interesting and have plenty of room to grow. I am glad the main character is not getting too powerful too quickly as that can ruin a story.

I enjoyed the shopping aspect of the story because you don't know what you will discover and the items available add depth to the world created. I worry for the main characters lack of wealth in a world where its so needed to survive.

I thought the dungeons and the exploration were well described.

The narrator did a fantastic job and his pace was perfect. He deserves thanks. A most enjoyable listen

If you enjoyed the previous books you should enjoy this one. I look forward to the next book and how all the plots and plans unfold.

wtf

I just got to the part where Michael arrives at the emporium and is going to buy new gear. first of all I would like to explain something about litrpg fans. there is 3 things all of us love equally. awesome gear, lots of awesome loot money included, and leveling up.
we want our hero to not only be a badass but look bad ass as well. like replacing the old trash swords he got back when he was level 20. he is level 80 now. same with that ragged armor he got at level 20 too. so this whole book has made it seem like 1 gold was a bunch of money. master skills cost 10 gold when Michael was level 18 in the safe zone of the masters dungeon. even more recently the manager of his bank was in awe with how much wealth he had accrued. 2500 gold was enough to impress a level 175 blue scaled fish monster bank manager. yet apparently it's not enough to buy two short swords, and a set of armor. sorry but i am an economist and I hate when books are so inconsistent with their worlds economy it's just lazy.

pretty darn good, one complaint

I love the set up for future stories while wrapping up some he started here, but honestly there was a part that dragged on too long in my opinion, but may have been a genius move to make me feel like Michael by the end of that part.

This is my favorite series!

Love this book and series! The only quarrels I ever had was wanting more at the end!! Can't wait for the next book! Everyone has to love Michael! This guy beats the odds at every turn with his cunning and unorthodox style. BTW my favorite expletive so far of any litrpg book has to be Michael's "damnation!" Unique just like him.

Best book in the best LitRPG series I’ve read,

This series is fantastic; this book in particular. There are a couple scenes that start out seeming way out of place…ahem, tundra, but then the author finishes the story arc and it turns out great. Can’t recommend enough.

Awesome melding of D&D game mechanics and live action.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Plenty if mystery, suspense and adventure. I Imagined a scenario in which I became my world of Warcraft warrior and entered Azeroth for real! The only negative for me was Michael’s internal monologue is a little annoying at times. All together a great book series, can’t wait to read the next one.

Top quality

I like litrpg books and search them as such. This one checks all the boxes. Great progression and a hard system. Great writing and storytelling as well.
