If you read Book 3 and you're wondering whether to continue, my answer is an enthusiastic "Yes!!!" I felt that Book 3 failed to make full use of Shirtaloon's biggest draw-card and best feature (i.e. the good-natured humour abounding in the series). Another best feature (Shirtaloon, like Jason, seems to have a lot of best features) became evident with the change in locale to Earth. This is a LitRPG writer who observes and listens to people. Taika ("Like the director, but I don't make movies") for instance is portrayed brilliantly. As with Jason originally, you can't help reading his speech in the appropriate accent but the effect is achieved without resorting to stereotypes. It definitely makes a change from other LitRPG writers who seem to have learnt all about human interaction by sitting in a room alone watching anime. It's also a welcome change to read a LitRPG character who questions the morality of killing opponents rather than focusing instead on how much XP they're worth.
I finished it and immediately pre-ordered Book 5.
The authors' capacity to continue at such a peak, while also creating joy, stress, tragedy, & growth upon their characters without breaking immersion or warping the characters without established backround & supporting narrative, in an incredibly rich & dynamic setting, is masterful.

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.
