I loved the first book the story characters and pacing were well done. The second book in this compilation is not so good. there are too many annoying useless characters like Bernice, the fat king arista meets and so on. All bit characters that make u cringe as they ramble on. This series is one of my favs but his side characters are either interesting or extremely annoying.

repetitive word play

the story is slow but the choice in words is annoying. The author repeats trollick and by the light so much for the first half the book the words become nails on a chalk board b4 u finish the story. The constant dreaming is also not enjoyable. The way the dark lord appears is not threatening or frightening he sounds like a child throwing a tantrum. Matt starts the story as a fun character and becomes a total whiner. And theres like 600 inn scenes. The story improves around the last 1/4 but not enough to save it. Way to many delusions, special destinies and the main characters are lead thru the story by the pattern rather then making active choices the reader can respect. So annoying to hear the same saying over and over like the wheel wills what the wheel wills. Literally just a twist on the dumbest saying in existence "everything happens for a reason".

Poorly executed ruined his own book with bad jokes

The author definitely shot himself in the foot with this book. The story and characters are decent but the humour he shoves down our throat every other line with the main characters pathetic sense of humour is jarring. One thing that ruins a book for me is when authors think themselves funny or philosophical and cram there works full of garbage. If Richter kept more then half of his tard jokes to himself the book would be much improved. Worse is that the author knows his character isn't funny by the reactions of the side characters but still throws out terrible jokes by the hundreds. Same with the main characters stupid earth puns that noone in the book would get yet the idiot keeps using them as if there literary gold such a waste of a good story. Like were not exposed to dumb ppl who think themselves funny irl enough they need to be incorporated into books.

Fun listen

Very enjoyable story and characters. The world and rpg elements are well done. Only issue being the repetative pop ups like race info and lvl up prompts. Granted it was originally a book so they would be easy to glance over, as an audiobook it would have been best to tone it down. That includes the annoying dings and beeps everytime something gets found or seen. Usually this would take me right out of the story but it's a minor issue next to the quality of the material. Nick podehl does an amazing job as expected of a top tier narrator, definitely my favorite. Great experience all around I'd recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy and doesn't despise stats.

best book yet

Great story and character development. The plot is moving along nicely and the mc is a becoming a badass. Loved the factory tho not a fan of that crappy neutral gods prophecy hanging over him like an axe souring his efforts. Hopefully that resolves quickly as it kinda stifles his growth with his companions. Otherwise amazing work as always.

first hour is bs whining by little twirl. after a major victory in the last book seems pathetically misplaced.

Decent story ruined by terrible romance

Audio is broken in a few chapters, skips and studders like a low quality youtube audiobook. The dynamic between the 2 main characters is terrible. It's hard to enjoy a good story when the characters act so oddly it makes them impossible to relate to or like. The side characters are interesting and the author gives them plenty of room to develop as the story goes on. The villains are well done if a bit one dimensional. The magic system isn't covered much tho it does appear interesting. All in all a good story that's hard to love with the douchy way the mc's behave toward each other. Terrible rating cause I found myself skipping most scenes about the 2 mains pining for each other or spewing conflicted statements that goes against all the bs pining they did previously. Terrible attempt at romance.

Good story wasted

Most books by this author leave me shacking my head. He has well built worlds, good characters and decent story telling. But its held back by poor decision making for the details and repetitive themes. My biggest issue is that impactful scenes like death scenes fall flat when the outcome is predictable or u know it's a temporary state. The appearance of the squirrel used heavily in station core had me rolling my eyes. It was cute the first time in station core and got over used to bring it into another series is pointless.

Leading to the use of forest critters as the main monster in a fantasy series. Please mr Brooks get a d&d beastiary and select some interesting creatures for your next works your monsters are extremely unimpressive.Lastly the emergence of his dungeon core instincts is poorly handled. The cores attitude towards humans seemed to be developed out of convenience to play it as an instinctual need to take advantage of live stock excuses there behaviors and cheapens the main conflict in the series. Unfortunately leaves me where I was after the last book good story bad storytelling. I should add that even with the flaws it's an enjoyable series it's just sad to see something that could be great be decent.

terrible timing

The authors timing is terrible. When the guild pulls off a big win he immediately destroys the mood with an op douche within minutes of the victory. I enjoy the story and characters but the dungeon monsters are extremely underwhelming. After the station core series I find it odd that this authors idea of dungeon monsters is forest critters. Where are the minautors, ogres, troglodytes, imps at least there was a few fantasy monsters but bugs, plants and forest beasts dont inspire awe or an exciting read. Plus the standard cliche types like golems and goblins should be avoided. There are hundreds of creatures to choose from why it's always the same handful is unimaginative.

The main character is very dumb. Too nice and very dull personality. The world is interesting but most of the story takes place in ppls heads thru personal monologues and weighing options for much longer then ppl have. When u talk to ppl u cant spend 5 minutes thinking between responses. Throws the flow of the story off and isn't natural, would make alot more sense to explain most facts thru conversation or playful banter at buddies naivete. Alot of potential but it feels mostly wasted.
