Four years ago, the Erethran Honor Guard arrived and threw John Lee into a Portal to another world. Since then, Earth has received no word of the intrepid adventurer. Until now.
Finding his way back to Earth through a Portal, John returns to a very changed world. The shackles of Galactic control have bound Earth and humanity ever tighter to the System. Now, John has to find a way to free Earth from Galactic control while battling stronger, more powerful enemies. And worst of all, he will need to indulge in politics.
Good thing he's got a new Class and new allies.
World's Unbound is book six of the System Apocalypse, a LitRPG / GameLit series of post-apocalypse troubles, scifi & fantasy elements, all in a world filled with game mechanics.
This series contains elements of games like level ups, experience, enchanted materials, a sarcastic spirit, mecha, a beguiling dark elf, monsters, minotaurs, a fiery red head and a semi-realistic view on violence and its effects. Does not include harems.
My Opinion: 379 pg, $4.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited
One of the more abstract entries in the series. It time jumps the main character (MC) 4 years past the end of the last book and of necessity requires a lot of summaries of what took place in those years.
There is still plenty of action, dungeon crawling, and RPG progression. But it's not the main focus. Instead the story revolves around the goal of getting earth a seat on the Galactic Counsel. The MC and his allies trying to get the needed votes from the highly divided people/aliens of earth to back a candidate. Lots of politics, which personally I’m not a huge fan of. All the talking, compromising, backstabbing, and backroom dealing is just not my thing. Yet, even for me, some of the conversations the MC has were still interesting.
Overall, I had a good time with the novel still, just not as much as the earlier ones. Though you can tell the author is trying to end this arc of the series and set up the next galactic level one.
Score: 7.2 out of 10
