I was expecting to be delighted by the book and my every expectation was met and exceeded!
The whole arch-plot of the series is further explained except it makes no sense in its implementation. You open astral spaces on land to cause conflict OR underwater to promote energy transfer in a stealth manner because there are no magic capable sentients underwater ; there is no reason to do both given the Builder level goals (design specifications it turns out.)
And finally the author obviously has problems with govt in OZ, and like every other socialist blame the USA for his countries failures. [aka the author can't stop ragging]
I’m dropping the series. The good stuff ends at book 3…
Jason’s story takes a sharp turn. From the cover, it’s an easy guess as to who the woman is, not sure why she’s back, (when her death meant so much to Jason) also she changed a lot and it’s not touched on as she’s lost in all the other characters. All fine elements...
I liked the 4 battles, didn’t like the conversations or the inherent issues (ad nauseam) with killing people in an rpg when your life is on the line. No new powers or growth, no loot besides a gun essence… All the interesting characters are gone for this installment replaced by woman with love interest, positions of influence or family ties (literally ever new character, not an issue but it’s a turn from the story so far). Reads like a sitcom hence the title…
I think the only strength in this book is the letdown
Now on to the critical points of this book. The writing is great, absolutely great. Vivid imagery and deep world building. This arc is has a much darker tone than the beginning arc due to character growth. To be specific, not character growth as a series of power up that game lit nerds like to spreadsheet. Rather emotional growth as a person that is dealing with gaining super powers and also reintegration issues. Most isekai stories never address the real issue of how would a person return and live normally after gaining new and bizarre life experiences and powers. This series does, in a way that is refreshingly honest and realistic.
Cautions for new readers. The author is Australian and uses Australian terms and slang and writes in international English vs Americanized English. Also the honest portrayal of the way the rest of the world views America will disagree with the unreasoning ‘Merica flag waving readers. That’s okay with me, but if you found yourself offended by the previous statement don’t read this story!
To sum up, I highly recommend this entire series and am looking forward to future novels!
updated review: Book 5 gets right back to what i loved about the series. If you are like me and almost gave up the series or actually did, don't! Im only 100 pages in on book 5 and it has me hooked!

He Who Fights With Monsters is a series with splendid bad guys, beautiful godd guys, and a main character who would be a hero if his powers, spells, and skills didn't sound so damned evil.
Jason continues his adventures, despite the minor inconvenience of having died at the end of the previous book, and has a chance to try and resolve some of the ghosts of his past and the regrets he has built up.
Funny, page-turning, and with wonderfully presented insights and observations about humans and our motivations and conundrums, book 4 is another fantastic volume in a brilliant series.
Oh and get ready for more 80s tv shows like airwolf (dont mention the fourth series) or the dabacle of team nightrider (why on gods earth was it mustangs and not transams),plus other references to iseka etc even one punch man gets a mention but no streethawk for the motorcycle bit common it needs a rewrite.
