Description

Build. Evolve. Conquer. Welcome to the civil war....

Roark von Graf - former noble and hedge mage, current mid-level mob in a MMORPG - has his sights set on taking down the tyrannical dungeon lord. But the reigning troll despot is nearly as devious as Roark, and his followers are at a much higher level.

With forever-death on the line, civil war breaks out in the Citadel, pitting Roark’s new regime against Azibek’s horde of loyalists. To survive, Roark will have to outfox the dungeon lord, forge new, dirtier weapons and shady alliances, and above all, evolve....

But while the trolls are entrenched in their civil war, an outside threat is growing. Eyes from the IRL world are beginning to turn toward the Citadel. There’s something strange about this Roark, and they intend to find out what.

From James A. Hunter, author of the litRPG epic Viridian Gate Online, and eden Hudson, author of the Legend of the Treesinger and the Jubal Van Zandt series, comes an exciting new litRPG dungeon-core adventure you won’t want to pause!

Is Infinity War Next? These keep getting BIGGER

Roark returns in a wonderfully penned tale about his struggle to gain dominance in his dungeon. That is what the title Civil War refers too, in case you were thinking that Captain America or Iron Man were going to show up somewhere along the lines. We do get Cooter Joe and Powner Boner back for more, so that is a plus, and I have to say that Pwner Boner is one of my favorite jerks of all time.
Like I said, the dungeon is embroiled in a uncivil war, and Roark is beset on quite a few fronts as he has to fend off player incursions, assaults from unfriendlies from the lower levels, and even some Dev concerns that he isn’t quite aware of. That is one thing that I think is so slick about this series, it meshes three different dimensions together, Roark’s world, the Game world, and the player’s universe.
This edition of the series is where the steam starts picking up. Book one had a great intro and set up, but this is where things really take off. We get bigger fights, more evolutions, and alliances between different floors. My mad man Kaz tears up as a master chef, and Zyra takes ass kicking to a whole new level. I’d love to see a reference to Kaz becoming an Iron Chef. He gets a cool tenderizer, but he needs a good cleaver and sharpening tool.
We also get to see some crafting, so fans of this portion of gaming will be happy, as will the builders, as Roark goes on and reconfigures his level several times. There is also an addition of some NPC trainers who are actually interesting, and Kaz gets a love interest.
The only part of the book that I struggle with is the burgeoning romance vibes that I get from Roark and Zyra. That is not a happy thing. Zyra is a monster that loves blood and killing, Roark only kills because he has to and wants to save his people. Once this whole battle is done and he can go home he’s either going to stay or take her with him, and if she becomes human I doubt that she’s going to want to go around not killing people all day. AS much as I wish it so I don’t see Roark loving his life as a troll. He’s never once mentioned how much better it as than his being a human, so . . .problems. Either way, I gotten put points into Hudson and Hunter to do the right thing. They have a plan.
I will reiterate that I am always amazed at how great James manages to meld his writing style with that of whomever he partners with in so flawless a manner. The writing here is smooth, flawless, and well paced. They action picks up and never lets up. The characterizations are well done, and I have to say that as much as I like my beefy chef, Zyra has stolen my cholesterol clogged heart. I think I like her more than Roark, but then kick butt assassin chicks have always been my weakness. Actually I am attracted to crazy more than kick buttiness, but we’ll leave my personal life out of this discussion.
What can I say about Nick Pohdel? What haven’t I said already? He plays this series like he was in the world series of poker holding four aces. He powns it. See what I did there? Nick really makes this super fun, and while I think that his weakest point as a narrator is that he can’t do a dozen different female voices that the ones he has here work really well, and are distinctive unto themselves.

I kind of boxed myself in with my review of the first book, because I think I hit it at an 8.5, and I loved this book. 8.7 stars.

For the RPG geek inside

I absolutely LOVED playjng MMO games and fell for this series early. So clever and idea and wonderfully written in an engaging & accessible way.

I was worried that “leveling up” would be boring, but even that is read well!

I’d highly suggest this if you are familiar with the MMO RPG world. You’ll love it and be counting days to book 3!

Fantastic

While there is a lot of cursing in the book the characters are done in such an enjoyable way that you can track their passions. It makes the story smooth and easy to follow and it rolls together very well

Actual story progress!

One of the worst things about LitRPGs is that they tend to have very little change from start to finish besides the stats/powers/whatever of the main character.

If you’re worried about that seeing the title and as I was, inwardly translating it to “Rogue Dungeon: Grinding”, rest assured, that is not an issue here

Internal Dungeon War

Roark has taken over the first floor of the Citadel. With his band of trolls at his side, Roark starts is plans to take over the Citadel to work as his base of operations to get back to his own world. This is when the dungeon's overlord decides to remove Rorark. He needs to befriend or conquer each level of the dungeon to get to the Overlord and take his throne. Then, there is also the matter of the players that keep trying to go through the dungeon. That doesn't even take into account for the players that have a personal stake in taking Roark down.

The narrator does an amazing job with this book. Nick never disappoints. This is a very promising series and I'm looking forward to book 3.

Trolls rule!

Excellent audiobook. I love the descriptive prose. Definitely have more of an in the game feel in this series than many. More of a visceral experience. I thought the narration was very well done. Great character voices. I found extremely easy to lose myself in the narration and just experience the world of the story.
