Description

Dark forces are threatening everything that Dungeon Lord Edward Wright cares about...and they don’t expect what they’re about to get. 

Only a few weeks have passed since the Battle of Burrova, and Edward and his friends are busier than ever improving the Haunt and protecting the surviving villagers. 

Sadly, time is a scarce commodity in the world of Ivalis. Soon enough, Ed finds himself thrown in conflict against the man behind the mindbrood’s attack, a man who is seemingly capable of shrugging off mortal wounds and who is willing to unleash a devastating plague of undead against the Haunt and everyone inside. 

Only the otherworldly powers of a Dungeon Lord may be capable of protecting the Haunt against the rapidly approaching danger...but can Edward remain the same man if he exposes himself to the corrupting influence of that very same power? 

The second installment of The Wraith's Haunt is upon us, and Soundbooth Theater had a blast producing it! In the first book, Annie Ellicott played some of SBT's creepiest monstrosities. But in this book, she's taken on the entire female cast, including Kes and Lavy who were voiced by Jeff Hays originally, and a charming new character, Katarina Locksmith, the clever thief. Annie and Jeff have been honing their vocal chemistry, and the results speak for themselves!

Worthwhile series

Narration is great. Story is great. you tend to feel the same emotions towards the characters as the protagonist. They use a female voice actor for the female characters and it makes the story much deeper.

Lord Wraith's wrath wreaks Havoc on Heuron

Gadzooks! Where do I begin? How about with the amazing audible talents of Jeff Hays and Annie Ellicott. What wicked warbling this pair doth make together! Hays is far and away my favorite narrator, and Annie has blown my mind with her own skill, talent, and versatility as well. They make a dynamic duo doling out dimensionally vocal magic. They flow into each other's voices effortlessly, and if they did any editing then it was done seamlessly. As much I as love hearing Jeff do female voices I have to say that Annie manages to steal the spotlight quite a few times, and her vocalizations of one thief in particular made me wish I was in Ivalis. You hear that Murmur? In all sincerity this is an impressive pair that not only works well together, but really elevates the story into the stratosphere. I am quite content just listening to Jeff do his manly voices while Annie carries along with the ladies.

How about story? Well, the writing is fast, humorous, and utterly gripping. One thing I noted in the first book was that I appreciated how much Edward used his head more than his hands in a fight. The same thing goes here, at every opportunity he out schemes, outwits, or out plays his opponents. Even when all hope is lost, he doesn't give up and thinks of something that he has in his bag of tricks that he can use to defeat his opponent.

We get to see some of the Keep finally being upgraded, some new monster allies, and a business venture that should put Lord Wraith in the black, if he can stop bleeding long enough to take care of all the red. The characters continue to grow and develop, and each one get a point to shine in their own little spotlight. Edward might carry the story, but his allies come together and survive on their own thanks to his training and the impression he has made on each of them. Ed does find love, but her dad has some issues with anyone but him being around his daughter. Nicholi returns and has a nasty secret surprise hidden up his sleeve for Ed and co. Ha, now that I think of it, Ed has a nasty surprise up his sleeve at the end of the book, too. You need to see it for yourself. I'm not giving anything away.

Basically, the battles and blood balance out the training and building that the team does. The fight scenes are some of the best I've read, and the training should come with some montage music. I'm not sure how long this series is going to go (a long time, I hope) but readers should beware that the next big bad is someone you already know and hate. Book three looks to be epic if the Epilogue lives up to its promise. Can I just as Hugo to hurry along book three and four? Waiting more than an hour or so between books is just murder.

Oh, I have to mention the cover. I love it. I enjoyed the book one cover, too, but this one does its job. It catches you eyes, makes you want to learn more about the story, and is something I would hang on my wall if it were a poster. This is what a cover should look like; dark, dangerous, mysterious, and foreboding. If you are scrolling along it will make you stop and go back to see what the book is about. Great choice on some excellent artwork.

Huesca has created a bevy of interesting characters, each replete with their own drives, goals, and personalities. The story never relents, it is always pushing forward, and the ending is most satisfying. If you are looking for something that is LitRPG, fantasy, horror, or even action then this is the book (and series) for you. You will not regret getting this, although I do suggest reading book one first. So, get book one now if you haven't, and if you have but are worried that the story suffered from a sophomore slump . . .DON'T. No need to fear. This book takes and builds on everything in book one and improves upon it. Don't miss out. Start reading NOW!!! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

I was a little disappointed.

I think the author has a good concept and has developed an interesting world. The lore is pretty good too. The main character seems off and the lack of him acting more like a dungeon Lord is missing which is a reason I was interested in the book in the first place. The childlike bravado just seems out of place and miss directed.

I was hoping for a tough dungeon lord and really dive into the mechanics of a dungeon build. What we have is a naïve good guy kind of playing one half heartedly. I kind of see what the author was trying to do, and see that it could work.

I am not sure if the author will keep working on the main character development.

I’m not sure if I’ll give this one another shot. I might wait to see what the reviews are.

I hate to write a tough review and respect the author. It is purely for critical feedback.

I went in with an expectation of one type of story and was disappointed. Others might be looking for something else and it could be right up there ally.

Loved it.

Even better than the first book. I love the interactions between Edward and Haddon (sp?). The other characters are given more life and depth. Jeff Hays is masterful, as usual, and gave life to the story and characters far beyond what my own inner voice could However, I have to be honest - mostly hoping the narrator reads this and adapts. Annie took me out of the story with her characters quite often. Half of her female voices (aside from Kat and Adriana) had a comically gravely and shrill aspect that grated and seemed far too manic and cartoony (I found myself pulled out of the story either cringing a bit or considering whether the tone seemed out of character). I lost the ability to determine who was talking without context or attribution cues from the writing when these characters were talking.

Overall, I Loved it. The ending was both satisfying and exciting, now that I know who the next minor antagonist might be! Can't wait for the next. Here's hoping Hugo and Jeff the best of luck, inspiration, and health!

A decent book ruined by excessive inner monologe

Title pretty much says it all. The book should have been better but the characters do the whole constant inner turmoil overly descriptive nonsense. It's even more frustrating during fight scenes. The last few chapters were practically unlistenable. I had to almost constantly hit the 30sec forward button in an attempt to suppress my overwhelming irritation. If it wasn't for that though I would have rated the book higher. It's a interesting enough premise and the storyline is solid. The only other issues are that the whole objective experience gain concept is stupid and the Dungeon's Lords minions are worthless. I was torn between rooting for them to get murdered so the MC could get better ones but at the same time not wanting to have to endure the overload of overly descriptive self flagellation from the MC that we would have inevitably had to listen too.

Naive author, too much fantasy

I really tried to give it a good listen, but I really couldn’t stay for it all. The author writes the MC into a box and made him into a naïve child, who is refusing to kill people who are trying to kill him in a world of violence. That to me is just nonsense. I have never heard of anyone with so much potential in writing, story and performance crippling themselves, by writing the MC into a box by saying he refuses to kill. Who would ever thought about being transported to a new world of violence from earth, a world of violence and refused to killing to survive and hoping and surviving on luck only, yeah give it up. You can spend your credits on something better.

I know what’s missing

This 2nd book has the same quality as the first.

The narrators do a good job as usual. I personally don’t care for the voice of the main character as it accentuates his dull personality. That is the big issue. The main character’s personality feels very dull.

Other than that the story is entertaining enough. The world feels like it’s missing some depth that the writer can pen out to really draw you into it.

Still a fun read though and will be moving on to the 3rd book.

Just terrible

I have to think Audible fakes reviews. There is no way these books got 4 and 5 stars from actual people. There are so many problems with these books I dont know where to start. They are not interesting or fun. I bought the 2nd book even after not enjoying the first hoping it would get better. It did not and I will not be buying the 3rd. Jeff Hayes annoys me too. The echoes and sound effects are too much. Annie Ellicott is terrible. There are great books in this genre, but unfortunately also a lot of trash and this is the latter.
