Publisher's Summary

Mahan's ready for new adventures - just as the gaming world of Barliona thought it was about to reenter its old comfortable rut. The winds of the Dark Forest have finally died down; Altameda has recognized its new owner while Geranika is nursing new schemes of global destruction.
Would Mahan be happy with this predictable old life? We think not! New storylines, new monsters, new dungeons, and a new status: Our High Shaman hates the daily grind! He wants a new apprentice? Then he'd better find someone who has no right to summon Spirits. A new ship? It's going to be one of a kind! A new love? Well, we'll have to see, won't we?

Pissed Off!!! (5 stars)

It is not often that a book leaves you at such a cliff hanger that you are so angry you want to throw your phone and yell out loud at what just happened!!!!

This is an excellent series. The writing is great & what a roller coaster.

I am just super pissed at what happened, I call upon a herald, we need revenge!

broke my i pod

Would you listen to The Karmadont Chess Set again? Why?

probably but only if there is a book six

Who was your favorite character and why?

mayan because hes mayan

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Yen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

what the fuckitty fuck man that was so ruthless and cold that i broke my shit

Any additional comments?

i cannot believe mayan was so obtuse but then again not all hope is lost so hopefully book six will be filled with the best kind of revenge

Dastardly Deeds Done

If you have made it through the previously four books then this one will not be a surprise to you and the writing and presenter continue to do a great job.

Some people may see the ending coming from a long way away others (myself) didn't see it until closer to the end.

Shaman Mahan continues his journey and adventures in the game and struggles to overcome the various challenges and basically happily progressing along as he works his way through his 7 year imprisonment sentence.

Nothing really major happens in this story until the end just continuation of various plot lines and character development but it is still quite enjoyable even with the few minor holes in the plot. The more sensitive of us will hate the ending and will have high expectations of the next book in the series.

Love the book, love the series, hate waiting for the next one.

First one of this serise I have not loved

honestly I love the way of the Shaman serise, this one however just kinda ended all at once..

It was like the author was rushing to meet the deadline and did not get time to fleshout the closing chapter..

anyway if you have made it this far in the serises you likely don't need this review.. And I will undoubtedly get the next one either way..
