    This third installment wasnt as great as the second one but better than the first, and because it didnt seem as better Ive been trying to find faults but even those are lacking. A wonderful third book which still has been making me feel more than the majority of other books in this genre. The action remains fresh, the trials challenging (although with predictable outcomes), and I quite care for most of the characters, even the new ones. The dialogue is still great and believable between most This third installment wasn’t as great as the second one but better than the first, and because it didn’t seem as better I’ve been trying to find faults but even those are lacking. A wonderful third book which still has been making me “feel” more than the majority of other books in this genre. The action remains fresh, the trials challenging (although with predictable outcomes), and I quite care for most of the characters, even the new ones. The dialogue is still great and believable between most parties, although some is cheesy and long winded. One of my favorite aspects of this book is that it explores the universe much more than the previous two and reveals much more to us about what is going on and all the powers at play. Rating lies between 4 and 5 starts but I think still deserving of 5, looking forward to the next one!

    Delicious! Like Wes, I must have some latent Dragon blood because I absolutely devoured this book! (Waits for boos and eye rolls to subside .) Woad Children is exceptional. It has multidimensional characters, believable villains, and a unique world. The character progression feels like a function of the physical rules of the universe. Often in LitRPG, progression feels more like a yes and... tacked on top. Not here. Raising and Descending feel like extensions of real choices we all make. Its Delicious!

My one quibble: I don’t think there was one moment where I felt Wes was in any danger. He felt completely unstoppable. However. Given the torment and opposition he faced in the first books, it feels earned rather than shallow. He became unstoppable because of the hardship and terror. So while there was no mortal danger, Wes crushing his enemies felt right and justified. So it didn’t really subtract from my enjoyment. To summarize: five stars all the way.

    One of the greatest depictions of a hero's story i have ever read While all litrpgs have a concept of leveling up or gaining power through effort, the metaphysical concept of lvling by "rising" after overcome difficulties in life and coming out better for it by restoration of the heart and body and love. and how others gain power through "decending" a concept of gain power through exploiting and destroying others instead of lifting them up like risers do and how it becomes an underlying conflict One of the greatest depictions of a hero's story i have ever read While all litrpgs have a concept of leveling up or gaining power through effort, the metaphysical concept of lvling by "rising" after overcome difficulties in life and coming out better for it by restoration of the heart and body and love. and how others gain power through "decending" a concept of gain power through exploiting and destroying others instead of lifting them up like risers do and how it becomes an underlying conflict of good and evil, is amazing. If I didn't think movie makers would mess it up I'd love to see a motion picture come from this.

    I need more A story that pulls you into a world any geek or gamer would want to be in. An amazing job by the author. By this point a lot of anothers dont know how to keep a plot moving and write a book that has no plot progression. but rather is 300 pages of set up for the new bad guy or new plot or what have you. I cant tell you how many books I waited years for to have read and felt like I waisted my time and money.

It’s worth the time to read and more importantly it’s worth the money.

    A terrific read! Our hero Wes continues to uncover the history of the Expanse and the Council which has kept Avalon and the Earth down. This is one of the few over powered main characters, in which the author has shaped the world appropriately to match his development. Tons of heroic actions, great characterizations, and enjoyable relationships.My understanding is that this is a combination of portal and cultivation LITRPG. But regardless of how its labeled, its tons of fun and worth your time. A terrific read!

    What can i say its a great continuation of the story, we get to see the new world and its danger as well brand new powers, we learn more abt the MC and truth behind his race. i still think the MC is not ruthless enough to the malice members and why is everyone keep telling him that something is impossible coz none can do but they can clearly saw MC do the same thing and they still keep telling him its impossible. another thing what is with all i m too worried abt you, so i m not going to say What can i say its a great continuation of the story, we get to see the new world and its danger as well brand new powers, we learn more abt the MC and truth behind his race. i still think the MC is not ruthless enough to the malice members and why is everyone keep telling him that something is impossible coz none can do but they can clearly saw MC do the same thing and they still keep telling him its impossible. another thing what is with all i m too worried abt you, so i m not going to say anything and we'll let both us suffer.

    Absurd Nerd

    I find the premise and overarching story of these books interesting. However this book sort of plods along and doesn't really deliver too much of the main plot. Essentially he completes some trials and tumults and that's it. Also the chapter length in places is ridiculous and he needs to get new proof readers, as having a spelling or grammar error on practically every page makes this even harder to read Not sure I'm gonna continue with book four if it's more filler like this book.

The ideas are strong but the many questions from the previous books don't get answered enough here.

    My oh my, what an awesome story. I really enjoyed the second book, but this one takes the cake. You can really see how the author is growing in skills by how he's able to maintain the exhilaration of the story pretty continuously throughout the book, and how you start caring even for minor, recently introduced characters. The worst part of the book is that it's over and the next one is months away.

    Amazing next step in the series Amazing next step in the series, giving further character, story plot and back ground plot build. The third book pick up right were the second left off and also answered some questions from the first two books while making more new questions needing answered. Great battle scenes, personal development at every turn. I highly recommended reading all 3 books in the series.

    Great novel to pump up the motivation I always love the challenger series. The third book keeps up the hectic pace of terrible and good things while making the reader feel empowered. The character development has definitely improved and the easier format of the litrpg segment makes it easy to follow. I do hope the author doesn't fall to in love with his characters good fortune but still a fantastic book.

    Yet again Mr. Thompson has again crafted a masterful tale. The litrpg me Janice don't detract at all from the epic nature of the story. I love the development of Wes, the MC, as well as the fleshing out of several of the supporting cast. Can't wait to see where the next volume takes us.

    Book three Mistakes: I found three for sure. It was either a word missing from a sentence, or a word used incorrectly. Plot: The battle moved off Avalon as the MC starts moving forward against his enemies. Characters: Over powered MC makes for quick battles. I find his true growth to be emotionally instead of physical as he overcomes self-doubt and many wrong done to him. 8/10

    Wes triumphant. Honestly I didn't think Nathan could have improved on book 2, shows how wrong I was. What a wonderful addition to Wes' story, and the growing of several side characters. I like the sneaky, sorry won't say, part near the end. Truly amazing. Well done Nathan, hurry and write the next one.

    Another exciting satisfying story I love everything about this story I especially love how Malcolm and his friends break down what it truly means to be a hero instead of the more traditional kinda conflicting view we normally have on them and their actions this is one of my most beloved series and I truly can't wait for more keep up the amazing work Mr. Thompson

    Loved it Thank you for another great story. I cannot wait for the next. Interesting and the plot kept me excited. The rest of this review is filled with blah. A specific number of words are required for this to actually post. The first sentences are my review. So are the number of stars. I read the stories, I do not write them.

    Just when I was getting a good night sleep... The third book in this series came out. I've been enjoying this series since I stumbled across the first book and it hasn't disappointed me yet. The MC is starting to crack into the OP territory but how he is doing it fits very well with the story.

    Great Great read. I really enjoyed the main character and the values learned. I like the idea of the gaining of levels, and as one finds in gaming, what type of character do I want to play? Wes finds a way to play them all - except archer. Well done, can't wait for the next installment.

    Excellent This series started slow and has accelerated to break neck speeds. The storyline is quintessential and beautiful with a lot of heart. The characters are continuing to develop and challenge norms and are building traits that honor the best of the human experience. Highly recommended

    Oh yes The third installation into this masterpiece is just as amazing as the previous two books. It just works so well. Thank you very much, I am looking forward to seeing more Wes in book four. (Thank god for the sexual tension resolution, great job)

    Once again a great book from Nathan Thompson Book 3 did not disappoint okay it could have been longer I love this series of books I could have just kept breathing this all night it was it was a sufficient length of a book I just wish I could read the next four of them right now.

    Great addition to the series I am not sure what exactly it is about this series but I love it. It is very hard to put down and the characters evoke so many emotions that it surprises me again with each book. I truly look forward to the next book and to see where it all ends.

    Amazing! This is such a wonderful work. In addition to the fast paced, action packed story, the author presents us with powerful messages of hope, strength, and perseverance. An incredible read. I cannot wait for the next one.

    Very Fun Read This is one of those series you just enjoy reading. A literary masterpiece? Maybe not, but I couldn't put it down nonetheless. Also didn't suffer from the paragraph spacing issues of the prior book in the series.

    Great book Love this series. Keep up the good work! It is nice to see a world where those who have been oppressed can overcome their trials and become stronger and honored for it, not looked down upon for being so weak as to be a target of oppression to begin with.

    I love this series ❤ I love this series. The only problem I can see is there should be about 15 more books right now. I really want to read more of these and I am eagerly waiting for the next installment. I love this series ❤️ I love this series.
