This book earned it's five stars, I look forward to recommending it to all my friends and I expect to reread it several times over the years. This is one of the best LitRPG series out there in my opinion. Michael has so far managed to avoid one of my major problems with longer series, and that is when an author brings in several new characters every book and yet still keeps all the ones from the other books.
The only problem I have with it (and it's more and annoyance than a problem) is that, when showing the levelling stats the publisher uses equal signs rather than dashes. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but as I listen to my books for hours while driving, and I use the kindle text-to-speech, I find myself listening to about ten equals equals equals equals etc. Then you get a sentence and another ten repeats of equals. Have that happen ten times in two pages and it gets old FAST.
