Invasions and sabotage. Two civilizations doing anything to exist. War crimes are the norm. Joe takes his first step into exile, and is promptly unable to breathe. This new Zone has a higher concentration of power, magnitudes denser. His first task is to survive, but mere survival is the least of his concerns. The Zone he has landed on has been in a state of constant war for Invasions and sabotage. Two civilizations doing anything to exist. War crimes are the norm. Joe takes his first step into exile, and is promptly unable to breathe. This new Zone has a higher concentration of power, magnitudes denser. His first task is to survive, but mere survival is the least of his concerns. The Zone he has landed on has been in a state of constant war for thousands of years, a tug of war between the Elven and Dwarven societies. Not choosing a side is the same as declaring both to be your personal enemy. Though he is resistant, Joe reluctantly decides to go with the group he thinks will help him grow the most—and is instantly plunged into their bitter war. To gain the freedom he desires, Joe needs to turn to the less savory aspects of his class. Engulfed by darkness, Joe can only hope he’ll be able to snuff out the light.

    Generally a good book with severe pacing issues. For what it is, it's not bad, most multibook series have a training montage book buried somewhere in their lineup, this is that. Joe pushes about a dozen skills up to master rank and even combines 3 of them into something new. He knocks off a few old quests that have been hanging around from previous books and re-learns how to ritualist now that he's actually barred from normal crafting methods.

He knocks off a few old quests that have been hanging around from previous books and re-learns how to ritualist now that he's actually barred from normal crafting methods. That being said, the book's final resolution doesn't really resolve anything that happens to Joe, and almost feels like DK just got tired of writing. The book feels cut short, not the least of which is because most of the 'rules' that dakota lays out at the start (6 months, minimum 3 major forts and a number of minor forts, opposition from the nobility) are ultimately just ignored later on. Also, joe is immediately drafted into the jarhead corps, and spends the majority of the book as a recruit, so joe doesn't really get to learn much of anything about the non-fodder brave new world esque social stratification system, let alone his newly selected racial enemy. All in all, I think the book would have benefitted greatly from a secondary sub arc like the ones present in the previous books.

    Brilliant continuation to the series Really enjoyed this book, read it all in one sitting! Perhaps not as exciting in some points as others and the resolution wasn't as clean cut as what I would have hoped but a solid addition and I'm excited to see where it goes next.

I prefer audio books SO much over reading because I can listen to them anywhere and the different voices help keep track of different characters. They also tell the tale at a more measured pace which helps me get more out of the book and miss fewer details. Luke Daniel's is one of my favorite audio book performers--and I use "performer" because he has a really clear, pleasant voice that is engaging and extremely varied. But he also does a great job with voices so that the characters come to life. The story is pretty good and overall I enjoyed it. As with the other books in the series, it was done cleanly without a ton of overly graphic sex, gore, harem, and political crap (like racism, LGBTQ pandering, religion bashing, or preachy moralism). Super nice to read good books without the author feeling the need to grandstand their personal beliefs and assume everyone believes exactly the same as them. Ok, here's what I didn't like. Luke Daniel's is phenomenal normally, but he read 75% of the voices in this book so slow it was torture. I originally gave the book 4 stars but opted to give it 5 still because that's not the authors fault. I would'nt mind if a single character was slow but my goodness, it was super noticable to me and u kept getting bored because the dialogue moved so slowly. The only other thing of negative note was that the story left out all the usual supporting characters--the only one we see this book is the MC with a brief cameo by Jackson (who sadly is my least favorite character (dinosaur hands...I just...ugg). Without the support characters the story was linear and meh. The stereo typical dwarf was cringy, so was the elf.

Seriously, the MC has a ton of abilities and skills but fails to use them because he keeps FORGETTING he has them, keeps dying and ending up to level 19 because he of his impulsive nature, keeps breaking the rules of the the game or laws of the world and keeps griping that either he doesn't know or no one has yet to tell him. I mean he leaves the city and goes back in, keeps reminding himself to buy shoes but doesn't and it just goes on. I am a bit of a basket case, but even i am not this scattered brained on constrain adrenaline. There were times where I just stop playing attention to the story because the MC comes up with the plan but either realizes that he doesn't need or explains that it doesn't work. Example: coming up with magic that could help make tunnels ...to dwarfs. That is like trying to selling ice to Eskimos. And the whining, it never ends and i am pretty sure it takes up most of the book. That and his constant stats, especially when he loses levels...and that happens alot. Also, the whole "BRO" and "boston" culture and language. That stop being funny FAST.

    Rating 4.0 stars Well there is good news and bad news. To be honest, it's not really bad news. The good news is that I love this series and I am glad that it is back. The bad news is that I didn't like this one as much as the others. In the other stories I could understand Joe's goals more.

He has to pick one or the other or both will kill him. That kind of sucks. Being drafted to fight in a war you don't care about and aren't given much of a choice. (view spoiler)[ Joe picks the dwarves and goes off to try and get a high ranking position in their ranks so he can get some land and help his guild when they arrive. Unlike the other books where he leveled crazy fast and focused on his intelligence, wisdom and perception, he actually lost levels in this book. By the end of the book he finally got back to the level he was at when the book started. Also the only stats that went up for him were the physical stats (at least until the end of the book). It just wasn't what I was used to reading about. I missed the people in Joe's group and his guild. (hide spoiler)] Overall I still really like the series and this authors writing, it just wasn't my favorite in the series.

I enjoyed this book, so my goal is to promote it and help the author. I am not going to share my reasoning, thoughts on the book, or any opinions that would influence your decision to read it. It is my opinion that Art needs to be experienced at an individual level. You are the only one that can determine what you like and don’t like. Don’t let others make that decision for you. You should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews. Or not if you don’t think this book is for you. That choice is all yours and the beauty of art appreciation. You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here.   
As always, I am open to debates and arguments, but also vain enough to seek acknowledgement, so feel free to roast me or applaud my efforts. Either is acceptable, because if you are paying attention to me then you are at least considering the book. And THAT my friends is exactly why you see my comments here.

    I'd probably rank this as my second-least-favorite of the Completionist Chronicles (I wasn't a fan of the Jaxon-solo book), but that is still very good. My main issue with this book was that some of the choices Joe made didn't seem very logical, and the story itself just felt a little lacking. Much of the characterizations felt like something that should have been a one-shot joke that just kept being recycled over and over.

Still, there were plenty of hilarious moments, some interesting game mechanics, and hopefully this was just setting the stage for better books in Zone 2 to come. My review is probably biased by the fact that I listened to the audiobook, and I found the voices of the Elves and Dwarves irritating. The Dwarves sounded like a mix of a bad Arnold Swartzenegger impersonation crossed with the Captain from Spongebob Squarepants, and the elves sounded like a cross between JFK and Joe Pesci.

    Totally flips the world The world that Krout had created in previous CC books is completely flipped with this one. Old expectations are subverted. Old ways of doing things don't work, and new ways have to be designed on the fly, with new resources and little training or information. Somehow, despite becoming even more powerful, Krout has managed to make the main character need to relearn his entire class.

This turned what would have been a boring 'overpowered' character into a character with limitless potential that requires actual thought and strategy to use correctly. Stories become boring when their characters reach the peak of their ability. Krout has wonderfully sidestepped that issue and kept this series fresh and interesting.

But also 2020 hit everyone hard so completely understandable if Dakota lost some motivation every now and again.

    Another good entry into this series, just to short as most good books sadly are. This time around we got a mostly solo adventure with a familiar face thrown in at the end. The book is mostly a combination of discovering the new zone and figuring out what his new class from the end of the last book can do. From a timeframe it spans wide enough that I would expect one or more books about the rest of Joes group. If it goes as Joe would like, we might even get a book with Joe almost entirely training Another good entry into this series, just to short as most good books sadly are.

    Good, but could have been great. Feels like the MC's character development has stalled out a bit. This book still has the great sequences of solving problems and excellent delivery of depicting magical/scientific genius, but it feels like the MC hasn't really learned from the past at all. I also miss him having more character interactions to develop his personality. That being said the new environment and culture around him is hilarious.

    Solid addition to the series. It was nice to get more 1 on 1 time with the main character and leave some of the more recurring side-characters behind for a bit. A lot of the character/world changes and advancements were interesting and fun to read about. Some of Joe's decisions and use of his knowledge base seemed a little odd, in that he wasn't showcasing the full breadth of what he knew or could do, but it was usually explained away pretty well.

    This was fine. Not a lot happens in the book and it seems like a lot of the time Joe is just trying to keep up. Plot was weirdly paced and jumped all over the place. Humor didn’t land at all with me and DKs efforts to make unique races just ended up deeming and making fun of everything we’ve learned about dwarves and elves over the years. Progression was abysmal and only gained some gratuitous gains. Didn’t feel like a whole book but was still a pretty fast read and generally enjoyable. At least This was fine.

    An idiot emerges Joe was once a thoughtful, self aware man, easily able to plan for the future. Over five volumes of adventures, he has come to this: a flighty, impulsive, and forgetful mess that neglects to consider two thirds of his abilities and cannot plan for more than two hours. Joe, the protagonist and lynchpin of all the relationships, has diminished from a mature retiree into an absent minded adolescent, even as the text tells us he has achieved hyper human intelligence and awareness.

Forced to evolve and choose at the same time, he discovers more about the world than anyone knew in the previous realm. With his choice comes obligations and the chance to become wildly powerful.

    Yes another incredible story I keep saying it on my reviews but you have to read this series. Every time a new book comes out I start at the beginning and read the whole series again. Characters and a story you will truly get invested in and humor that makes me laugh out loud. If you like fantasy, litrpg, or anything like that you'll love these books. The only downside is now I have to wait for the next book to come out. Can't say enough good things about this series or this author.

    Love, hate, what’s the difference The pain of pun...balanced by the joy of absurdity. I laughed out loud during several different scenes; during others, I cringed. “This is the whey.” Breathtaking, and not in a good way. The stat sheet is a little long to see as many times as we do, but since the MC actually *loses* more levels than he gains it is less annoying. I can’t wait to find out what happens next...but I guess I’ll have to.

    Great followup to book 5 I have been a fan of Dakota Krout for the past several years now, and I am always looking forward to new books coming out. I am very happy to have received this one today. I have loved the Compleationist Chronicles and Divine Dungeon series on audible while driving and have had several giggle-snort moments. Keep up your prolific writing and your bad puns.

    An excellent tale The latest instalment of Joes' adventures was thoroughly enjoyable as he gets back to bring the madcap scholar we know and love. Overall the story is well paced and fleshed out the realm and its unique conflicts. There are two flaws from my perspective the first is some minor but obvious grammatical/editorial errors and the second was the choice of Bostonian and Dude-bro as the personification of the two sides. Still I can't wait for the next book. An excellent tale The latest instalment of Joes' adventures was thoroughly enjoyable as he gets back to bring the madcap scholar we know and love.

    I'm so tired. I haven't slept in 2 days as I read this book I got to say I love the completionist series and this was an amazing addition to it! Everything that I love about the completionist series was there and there's very little I can say that needs to be improved. I cannot wait for the audiobook because if the audiobook for ruthless was anything to go by this is going to be EPIC I'm so tired.

    Arrogance saves a race Joe does it again, breaking down everything around him for power. This time it was even ...mostly...on purpose. Things get to stay dramatic for our bald boy from page one. Zone 2 does not let up for our MC , and of course he goes for quite a bit of time without thinking, just doing, as he does. He gets to get back to his love of creating, too, we just have to be patient. Great fun had by...most.
