Review: Having read these in quick succession, this one took me the longest, over the span of a few weeks due to university work, but was by far the most heart-racing and emotion inducing book of the 4 volumes thus far. Tl:dr, ekip to last paragraph. If you are like me at all and enjoyed Asuna's perspective from the earlier volumes, the first half provides exactly that in a very refreshing manner. It shared the less familiar thoughts of Asuna which have developed far beyond the thoughts of the Asuna we learned about from volume one, and are now much more aware of other players as well as her own skills in this VRMMO environment. This was so interesting that I felt sad when I saw the remainder of the book being shown from Kirito's perspective and I checked if the latter chapters were still written in First-Person. I hope that despite the authors' note at the end about the difficulty of writing from a different perspective, we will still see many more chapters from Asuna's point of view. Following this, in the second half of the volume, where things are seen from Kirito's perspective once again. This is very heavy with conflict, teamwork and action which led to some of the pages essentially disappearing from view because the pace of the story felt like it had picked up and either my reading got faster or I simply forgot that I was even reading as the plot and the action or relationships transported my mind into their world and only followed the events rather than the text on pages. I can't wait to see what happens in the next volume as the ending provided a massive action packed as well as emotional cliffhanger. This could actually prove to be useful as a slower ending, such as volume 3's, often make me feel less interested in instantly reading the next volume. Instead, the cliffhanger here has the opposite effect, and has me looking forward to Volume 5 immensely and will more than likely result in an early preorder, which proves it was successful as a book in promoting the next in the series.

Review: In this book, we explore the ruins of the fifth floor. This brings in treasure hunting, ghosts, and a bit of a gray area as to where the "safe zones" begin and end. The first half of the story is told in third person following/from Asuna's point of view, which is nice because it shows more of her own feelings (and less of the 'Asuna is a total you-know-what feeling we got in the last few books). It switches back to first person Kirito's in time for the boss battle, which is the first well fleshed out boss battle since the second floor. Very cool. We also see Argo in a combat sequence, which is awesome, and even get some little insider info on the two main front running guilds.
