Description

Dark forces have extended Edward Wright an offer of incredible power at a terrible cost...and Edward has chosen to make them regret it.

When Edward is swept into the world of Ivalis as a Dungeon Lord, the Dark's most powerful servant, he has no servitude in mind. He'll oppose the evil plans of the Dark god, Murmur, whatever it takes.

Through only his wits and his guts to help him survive a weakened arrival, Edward must rise to power if he is to earn the right to live another day. But in the battle between Dark and Light, what can Edward choose if both sides are cruel, uncaring monsters? Cold gods laugh in the distant world of Ivalis. Heroes chase after power and experience, while Kings send their armies to their deaths in the name of the Dark and the Light.

But no one expects the rise of the Dungeon Lord.... And in the world of Ivalis, maybe a single man can forge his own path.

With the One Man Theater himself at the helm, joined by the sensational Annie Ellicott as two of the most disturbing monsters ever produced by Soundbooth Theater, we hope you never forget this horrifying LitRPG experience.

Wouldn’t recommend, wouldn’t listen to again, but overall a good story.

I would not recommend this book to myself after having listened to it, but now that I’ve gotten through the first I am probably going to get the second...
The story did pick up after about chapter 18, up until then I was listening to this book believing I was going to be disappointed with it overall but in the end the story has left me curious about what will happen next. So that is definitely a plus.
While not focusing on stats too much (this is largely a story about someone with low stats finding creative ways to make himself more dangerous) it sure dives into stats DEEP when it does, which can make it pretty boring. If the listener doesn’t care about the stats because you aren’t making stats a big deal, then maybe don’t describe them like you’re reading the drop down sub-text...

There were a number of things in this book which annoyed me greatly, one of them being the main characters voice. Jeff Hayes does a great job in every book I’ve listened to which he narrates, a top performer for sure. This is why I’m led to believe the author had some input as to why the main character sounds like his chest is puffed out every time he says something. It’s as though someone asked Jeff to make the MC sound as predictably “hero” as he could. It leaves no room for dynamic or emotion in the character’s voice. There are some moments where you can hear Jeff slip into a more casual speaking candour, which is refreshing, before he corrects himself.
And then there are choices characters make.....
SPOILERS.
Don’t read further if you want to read this book.
The sheriff is aware that the inquisition will murder the town and even surrounding areas because of the threat of the bane. So if someone could please explain to me why when he sees the spiders -who he recognizes have the ability to smell the bane- killing towns folk and hunting the bane, why... does he decide to protect the people and attack the spiders when he has admitted that it’s his duty to tell the inquisition about the bane, therefore killing the townsfolk anyway? His character is the definition of a white knight to the point of getting in his own way.
The ranger who brought the bane didn’t seem to have a very convincing reason for doing so either. Kind of seemed like a rushed explanation of why things started.
The MC does a fairly good job of explaining that he doesn’t mean harm to anyone, and has the means to suss out the bane as their own world’s magic’s objectivity, yet no one trusts him even after he’s demonstrated its ability to do just that?

can't recommend to peole who listen with headphone

who ever was in charge of the audio production made an alright book complete unrecommendable. the parts were it goes from normal talking to very loud high pitch screaming is just painful. their are part that have audio echo and o can't tell if this was on purpose or and just a poor audio recording. it come across as the latter. the story itself was alright. good but nothing new. I like how it wasn't skillsheet heavy like some books.

I'm getting book 2 now.

Now, I'm no tween either, but the adult scene in this was both unexpected and felt natural, especially since it obviously wasn't a focus of this story.

The abject horror of some of these creatures made my skin crawl; the ambiance of the performance drew me in to make it feel more real. There were points in the story where the MC had felt a shiver down their backs, and I also felt one too right before it was mentioned in the story.

First chapter was hard to get through, only because I kept yelling at the MC to lay down a harassment lawsuit against his boss. I'm glad he didn't, for we wouldn't get to read his story if he did. Or maybe we would, but it would show up as an episode of a TV drama starring some slick lawyers and would read very differently.

The world that was built here is something that I can easily see myself trying to dig up all the lore I can later on and I'm happy to see this was only book 1 of a series.

Good, but the spider queen gave me a headaches

Everything was fine except for the weird and very very loud spider noises in the background when the queen is talking. It was funny at first but got irritating quick. maybe just half the volume on that.

great story

Excellent pacing and the characters are interesting. The sound effect when ppl are thinking or talking inside there heads is odd but the monster effects were awsome if abit disturbing at times. Alot of depth to the world and the info is presented naturally rather then massive info dumps like some cringey books. Probably my favorite dungeon series love those vulgar drones. Definitely worth a look if u like fantasy the litrpg are present tho not nearly as in your face with stats as many of the others I've seen.

Over all too soon!!

I'll be honest here, I am beginning to listen to just about everything I can find that Jeff Hays records. The man is vocal monster, and his range is scary. DL sees him providing ever newer voices to his repertoire and th world is better for it. The man is a vocal monster, and I think his taste in choosing what to read is almost at the same level. I don't know how he picks his books, but I have never heard him narrate a dud. Annie Ellicot does a great job here, too. the pair work seamlessly together that is reminiscent of Old Time Radio Dramas, but much much better.

DL 1, looks to be like the first in a long line of books; I am happy to say. It has a great style, lots of humor, and a gross and terrifying monster to trouble our "evil" Dungeon Lord and his minions. Hugo keeps the book nicely paced, and it is always interesting. Additionally, it handles the "I live in a video game" troupe in a cool way. One of the things I really enjoy is getting to watch the main character level up, and I had to laugh when the MC complains that he hardly got any experience for killing a high level monster. The explanation he gets was completely justifiable, and not something you see in these LitRPG novels nowadays. The hero is clever, intelligent, and brave but not suicidal or stupid. He behaves in a logical and reasonable manner.

This is a great book, and I most highly recommend it to you. Go read it now, so we can get more of Lord Wraith's adventures.

A litRpg

This was a good book. One stranger to another it’s worth the buy. And will most likely quickly climb the ladder to become one of the top stories in its category. I think the narration was excellent and stayed consistent throughout the story.
The plot itself was believable enough.
What I really enjoyed was the different monsters and how the narrators used their studio to maximize the creepiness of each monster.
Buy it, love it.
There was one sex scene which wasn’t to much or to long and it’s a very very small portion of the book.
Excellent book

A Good Listen (But a Warning)


I've been growing more fond of LitRPG novels lately, and this one is an excellent listen. The plot and characters are believable, the decisions they make under stress are thought out, and the errors they make are understandable. The narration was also excellent, though I would have liked that the guest narrator was used more in all the female roles. Which... brings me around to why I rated this a little oddly.

-- Minor Spoiler --
A child dies in this book. It is horror movie worthy. The voice actress is so on point, and the imagery so shocking, that it was all I could do to stand to listen. Violence towards children is a particular sore spot of mine when it comes to media, so I include this for people who might feel as I do. It was as good listen, but it made it nearly impossible to finish. Though, I will give the author and the narrators my compliments for evoking such a strong emotional reaction that I had to pull over and calm down.

So... yeah. With that caveat, enjoy. I do not mean to dissuade anyone from enjoying this book. I just felt like there needed to be a warning here.

Wasn't a bad story, Sound Effects were awful.

The story wasn't bad. Typical trapped in a Game scenario that is normal for the LitRPG genre. It wasn't a bad book, it's only real detractor was the absolutely awful high pitched squeal / whine that insist on using when some of the characters talk and absolutely annoying echo effect when the MC is thinking to himself.

While I enjoyed the book, I won't be getting the second one in the series... my ears are cringing just at the thought of hearing those sound effects again.

TL:DR - Decent story, decent narrator, absolutely horrible sound effect choices.

Bad even for a LitRPG

They must have bought these 5* reviews. Story is uninteresting, the universe bland, main character is annoying in a self righteous ignorant sort of way and he spends most the book with what are basically npcs. If you want a good dungeon building Litrpg get Dungeon Born. If you just want a Littpg go with just about any other one... dont believe these 4/5* reviews.

Struggled to finish it. The story was lackluster and the delivery was monotonous. I got it from a buy one get one but still feel like I want a refund.

Good book

The book caught me off guard, it was entertaining, the story was pretty nice and the narration was great, it was far more graphic than any other litrpg book I've read or listened to so far though.

Hhrrmmmmnn...

Jeff Hays does a great job as always.

Oh boy the odd battle writing...I never felt that I didn't know what was going on. But I did find the battles often describing an action and then immediately contradicting that action or altering it. It was jarring but not to the point where it didn't make sense to the reader/listener.

This definitely needed to be longer. There was a lot that happened, and a lot that didn't happen.

The main character doesn't seem to make the perfect decisions, which is great. I would have done things much differently if I were in his shoes so it highlights a gamer mindset different from my own. I just hope the rest of the series is consistent with his decision making process.

An Ideal Read

I'm slightly surprised this audio book isn't ranked higher. A more down to earth, level headed tale who's character isn't as brazen or quick to action but instead strategic and intuitive despite their ignorance. Yes comedy is lost in the tale as well as character building detail but this story as an air of realism ringing the supernatural in a different sense. Like all thats happening is normal and almost believable in a way. No Deity dialogue or transaction causes this I think but I'm not positive.
Its a good story either way and I'm definitely moving on to the second book.
