    I started listening to the audiobook this evening. I've been meaning to do a re-read for awhile. It's read quite well and the sound quality is great for an amateur. The chapter was okay, but at this point I think we're all just eager for resolution.

    Apparently there will be only two more updates before it ends. The next chapter in four weeks and then the last update with even longer wait, but it will have several chapters. I'm guessing the author will need at least two months to prepare that. I wouldn't be surprised if we got it as a December present.

    Huh so... Good chapter but I admit I'm a little disappointed. That's been standard since we left the time loop though, that everything just doesn't quite live up to my hopes and dreams.

    It was mostly a long, drawn-out fight without much else going on. I can't remember any character interaction off-hand, just combat information and a bird's eye view of the battle. Which is great to have but I'd like to have a bit more story to go with it.

    And this time despite the delays for proof-reading and beta-ing I noticed more errors than usual. And it takes a LOT of errors to really get my attention. At one point there was even a "he gave him an angry" line with the "look" being left out, and while normally I'd skip over it since it was about the tenth type of that nature I just started laughing and it took me out of the story.

    Anyway good cliff-hanger to end on I guess, but there wasn't enough "story" in this one, and while battles and fight scenes are interesting it's not what I (or I suspect most others) are reading for.

    It was in the update email that Patreon donors get every time MoL updates. Copy/paste is below:

    Update.

    The summoning fight was good, and the overall feel of a large battle planned by multiple sides was great.

    I still don't see how one more chapter finishes the story, even if split amongst a few chapters.

    The final chapters are going to be around the November. Assuming the usual speed it would be 3-4 more chapters and I'm guessing that's how many we will get. That's enough to fully finish the battle, but I wouldn't expect too much from epilogue and how Zorian, assuming his success, adapts to the new reality. Maybe we will get that as a sequel or something?

    I also thought the last chapter was pretty sweet. I would be pretty happy about a sequel or at least a couple of one shots that show him later in his life.

    A full sequel should be about a different character though. Zorian and Zach are already so powerful that there are too few challenging enemies once the month is over. Kirielle would be a cool main character while she learns magic and goes on reckless adventures with that friend of hers.
