I had figured the rest of the series would take place heavily within Rath's world, but quite a bit of the story follows Asuna and the gang out in the real world. If you have not read Alicization Beginning, then STOP and go read that.
Spoilers (from the first book) coming...
We left Kazuto in a precarious position in the previous book. In this book, more light is shed on his condition and the ill fated series of events leading to his brief demise and miraculous recovery. Of course we know he's still in Rath and we know that time is passing more quickly within the system than outside... but we know little else. It seems that there are mysterious forces behind the scenes, and Asuna Yuuki is going to do her best to discover the truth.
Last book left us with Kirito and Eugeo deciding to head to Centoria to become Holy Knights and discover the whereabouts of Alice. What they don't know is that the journey to becoming a Holy Knight is not easy, and there are many obstacles to overcome along the way. Plus Kirito seems to be at a major disadvantage within Rath since he doesn't quite know the rules yet. It seems that it isn't the same as the SAO model (which was used in GGO and ALO), so things aren't quite working out the same for him. We also are introduced to new allies and adversaries.
So what I love about this series is how Kawahra's writing is so fluid and the translation is so top notch. With the exception of an occasional "anyways" (which I hate!), the writing and translation are flawless and Yen Press should be very proud of their team. The books have gotten more complex and definitely seem to have more content and stuffing that the earlier SAO books. Plus, this series seems to have more of that original arc magic, way more akin to the SAO arc than ALO or GGO.
I think the arc is off to a great start. Read Alicization Beginning (it gets slow at times but suffer through), and then things really get going here!
