I would actually give this book a 3.5 but I rounded up to four. The last book ended with Noafumi and group chasing after Kyo through the portal into his world, unfortunately they got separated because of a trap he set and now they all have to find each other. This whole book is pretty much a glorified side quest that only has the purpose of introducing us to a new character who is also one of the four holy heroes of that world, the Hunting hero Kazuna. The entire book is spent with her and Naofumi teaming up to escape prison and find the rest of his team while learning a little bit about the new world he dropped into. Again the recap is the worst part of the book. Its made even worst since you can't exactly skip it since they mix it in with the actual story progression throughout the whole first chapter. (Story-recap-story-recap etc.) Although there isn't much of any plot progression in this one it's still a nice addition to the series as a whole since it's setting everything up for the climax of the arc next book I assume.
