Good story even if it had sad moments. With that being said ready for the next book in the story and hopefully happiness when they discover not just Jason but Farrah as well as still alive. ❤️
All of that aside, the story is a masterpiece. I love getting deep into a new, long series, and the tales of Jason Asano are my favorites. Truly at the top of the food chain.
If you have any interest in getting carried away by an author, here it is. Missing out on the chance to see one of the literary greats of our time develope would be a great shame.
Pick up the first book and keep reading. When the sixth book comes out, I'll grab it as soon as I see it.

Suffers from the same as book 4 but even more so sadly, which might be a case of being the "middle book" but might also just be the style has changed. Too much fragmentation of the narrative: we get a great many litte short story scenes that don't add much, and then are later re-addressed in the main narrative which makes the side those short stories seem like wasted time. Perhaps these worked well in a serial format but they are terrible in a book.
It drastically slows down the pacing of the plot and made me feel like too much info was being crammed in.
Ironically, Jason gets told the same thing in the narrative. To paraphrase, he's told he does too much and tries to be too flashy when a simple decisive stroke would be more effective.
Same thing applies to the author here. There's a lot of well described scenes giving extra, extra, extra info about peripheral characters and their motivations but not many of those scenes are actually needed since a lot of what they convey gets covered in the main narrative. A few of them maybe are, but honestly after just finishing the book I couldn't think of one off the top of my head that stands out.
With that being said, the main narrative when we get to it, is still really good and has me interested in the next entry. I just hope the style and narrative choices settle a bit more, as books 1-3 were a lot better and didn't feel as if they suffered as much from this fragmentation and slow progression in the narrative. Not really sure how to actually rate this but because I am still interested and not being definitely turned off I'll go 4/5
Also what's up with the ending? Or rather. A lack thereof. No big fight. No epic revenge. No awesome advancements. Just "and things keep getting worse. The end." It's as if the book was supposed to be 15% longer but then the editors decided it was too long and to put the conclusion in the next book. "Join us in book 6 to find out the ending of book 5."
Book 5 continues to satisfy as a thumping good read that delivers laughter, suspense, emotion and a great story, and keeps you turning the pages well after you should put the book down to do other things.
The only bad part about it is the wait for
the next volume in the series.
My only real concern is a personal one, exponential power growth. I love a good power growth story and hope he doesn't jump straight to super powered before doing some good old adventuring!
A good continuation of the story and well worth a read!
