    As I said with the previous book, I’m still unclear why this guild is called Gamemakers when there really isn’t any game making going on. I do love fantasy mysteries, so the mystery of the missing students was engaging and I was exceedingly happy that we at least solved part of the mystery, even with most of the mystery still carrying on to the next book. My largest complaint with this book is the passage of time. It dragged and felt exceedingly long. As a note to the author, every time you ment As I said with the previous book, I’m still unclear why this guild is called Gamemakers when there really isn’t any game making going on. I do love fantasy mysteries, so the mystery of the missing students was engaging and I was exceedingly happy that we at least solved part of the mystery, even with most of the mystery still carrying on to the next book. My largest complaint with this book is the passage of time. It dragged and felt exceedingly long. As a note to the author, every time you mention a passage of time, or how long something takes, that is exactly how long it feels like we’ve been reading the book. So, if the book covers a year, that is how long it feels like we’ve been reading it. If you say that Alex spent weeks trying to crack a level of the dungeon, that’s how long it feels like we’ve been reading that particular scene. Readers, you should probably note that the entirety of this book covers just a single 8-level dungeon run, so you can imagine the pacing when the book is 424 pages long. I cheer the author for keeping the stats to a minimum this time around. In the previous book, I felt like I was hitting them every other chapter. Even this time, I was skipping over them each time they popped up. Do I care how many points her word crafting went up? Not one iota. I also tired quickly of the dungeon itself. I mean, it was enter a level, try to figure out how to kill the mobs, all out carnage, go to the next level and repeat. Not to mention that the appearances of the levels weren't really described. The key number is 3 times before I tire of something. I also had the same complaint as the previous book of the named spells felt like cutting corners for describing what happens and what it looks like as it happens. I mean, I still have no idea what misdirect looks like or what even happens when Alex uses it, other than it causes the enemy some points of damage. For the record, I did like this book a whole lot more than the previous book (mainly because of the mystery and because the PvP battles in the previous book all felt the same). I loved Sorrow. I love that his character was even broadened this time around (and I loved how he interacted with Lily). However, Mancalf’s character really suffered in personality this time around, to the point that he became unintelligible and I gave up trying to figure out what he was saying. It also really irks me when an author uses cancer as a plot device. So, while I did think this was a vast improvement over the previous book in the series, it felt like it really could use a heavier hand at editing (ideally to be cut down to 300 pages tops).

Very well written, thank you, great plots and the magic seems a natural part, not a contrivance: you take us through a lot of the individual exploring their new found attributes, whilst at the same time the story is unfolding … and here is so much potential - a mere Hundred Halls and we have touched … three only, all very different, intriguing, yet with something in common. It is so different - and refreshing - from anything else I have read recently [or ever I think!]. I won't spoil the treats for readers - just highly recommend that lovers of the genre become inveigled in the twists and turns of the tale - and the hints that this could just be the evolution of gaming ….. What can I say? The journey thus far has been fantastic, the anticipation is maybe as great as being involved in relating the tale - and I look forward to much much more - what a find!! Come on readers - enjoy this, and … my last point … how wonderful it ties in with my Kindle Fire …………...

    Alert First, my review: “This was a fun book. I am glad that I read it. You should try it too.” Over the past year it has become apparent that my reviews are somewhat antagonistic and I apologize to those of you that have taken offense.

To my fellow reviewers: Messaging me and reviewing my reviews is as productive as trying to shovel water out of the ocean. Stop. I get it. Let’s just all live peacefully. To potential readers: Art needs to be experienced at an individual level. You are the only one that can determine what you like and don’t like. Don’t let others make that decision for you. You should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews. You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here. Cheers

    Another 10/10 for the Gamemakers Online Series I completely became absorbed in this book by Chapter 1. If you've been following along then you'll know things have not always been easy for our heroine and main character Alex but she always perseveres. This time she has Lily along for the ride. Fellow hall student and gamer who more than anything is looking for her Brother. The Citadel is meant to break you but also what if you find what you've been looking for all along too?? Great book again by Carp Another 10/10 for the Gamemakers Online Series I completely became absorbed in this book by Chapter 1.

Great book again by Carpenter. Really hitting his stride with this series and the ending is to die for. My only grievance is that we've to wait until March 2020 for the next book. But otherwise I'd say "What are you waiting for? Get reading".

    Alex must face the ultimate challenge of her life – literally. Together with her friends she braves the ominous Citadel of broken dreams which defies all previous challenges. This book kept me spellbound and on the edge of my seat not knowing what to expect next. If you thought book 2 was intense, you have no idea. The plot intensifies and you meet surprising new characters. This is a must read book for the open minded and lovers of LitRPG. You will not be disappointed.

    Explores, again, a new and different rpg genra, this type puzzle-type, Myst-esque gaming. Not horrible, as it does attempt to answer some questions, but overall the most disappointing installment of the series so far.

    Engrossing! The Hundred Halls novels are all totally enchanting and you are compelled through the series. Once again the author has created engrossing situations and characters you can feel for. Amazing story even for the non gamers!

    This series just gets better and better I love how Alex is underpowered and has to use her smarts to figure out the many unique puzzles in this dungeon crawler volume. One of the more unique litRPG.

    Alex has returned for her third year at the Hundred Halls in the Gamemakers Online section. This year she is to attempt the Citadel of Broken Dreams, a brutal dungeon which was not meant to be solved. Alex knew that people were vanishing once entering in game and she was concerned especially about Lily’s brother Drew, who had also vanished without a trace. She and Lily had never been friends even though Alex admired the world champion but now they were to work together on the same team to find h Alex has returned for her third year at the Hundred Halls in the Gamemakers Online section. This year she is to attempt the Citadel of Broken Dreams, a brutal dungeon which was not meant to be solved. Alex knew that people were vanishing once entering in game and she was concerned especially about Lily’s brother Drew, who had also vanished without a trace. She and Lily had never been friends even though Alex admired the world champion but now they were to work together on the same team to find her brother and other missing friends. They spent a whole year facing one dire level after another, persevering even when the going became very tough. Until they reached a permadeath level which needed to be tackled if any of them were to come out of this alive. Friends had been changed during the year, others lost and found, new friend were made and one had to make the ultimate sacrifice if any of them were to survive. This year had turned out to be a nightmare, so what were the makers of gamemakers online playing at? This is an exceptionally exciting book as the clock is ticking, dangers lurk on every level and Alex’s life and her cancer seem to be on the line too. If our team fails to defeat this dungeon Alex risks losing everything both in game and IRL. Wow cannot wait for the next book in this very exciting series.
