Description

In search for the townspeople of Gatecross and his Core Power Guild, Fred and his friends wind up in the city of Allroads - where they find more than they bargained for. After successfully breaking them all out of prison using his special abilities and creating a small dungeon underneath the city, his activity unfortunately gained the attention of the elemental Dungeon Core factions surrounding the large valley where the city is located.

That’s because the city of Allroads is occupying the middle of what the Cores called a Convergence, an area of intense elemental concentration that produced an extraordinary amount of ambient Mana; those Convergences are protected and off-limits for any dungeons to possess, which is one of the reasons Fred gained the ire of the nearby Cores.

Or, it could be because he destroyed three of their own....

Regardless of the reason, Allroads is under siege, and Fred has to help defend the city from all seven of the elemental factions pressing against his territory border, prepare for potential invaders to his dungeon with the help of his Shards, and potentially figure out a way to save both species (Humans and Dungeon Cores) from extinction.

And he has to do all of that while convincing the Allroads Council not to execute him for bringing all of this trouble to their literal doorstep....

Contains LitRPG/GameLit elements such as statistics and leveling. No harems and no profanity.

Better.

While I’m a fan of Jonathan Brooks, I have also found his work can be frustrating. Some of his books are literally 3 hours of story and 8 hours of exposition and stat sheets. The last couple of his books were so scant on actual plot, I almost returned them.

Fortunately, this book is much more balanced. While there are a couple of hours of barely relevant dungeon-mechanics related exposition, this installment actually spends most of its time with the characters and the story. I’m hopeful that Brooks will continue this trend going forward.

Brooks brings home the Best!

Well, it seems like this is the penultimate book in the Dungeon World series, and while it is amazingly good it is also a bittersweet pill to have to swallow since this is, without question, my favorite series that Brooks has written or is writing to date. On that note, I think the primary reason I am not head over heels with some of his other series is the fact that I didn’t read them, I listened and narration is the name of the game in audio; so a great book can be deflated by the person reading. Miles Meili is a perfect fit for Brooks, and I just wish he’d see that. I don’t want to disparage but in my upcoming review of his dungeon horror story I detail exactly what I mean.

Meili provides a certain tone that just resonates with the story of Fred and his motley crew of shards. It is an intangible thing, and I liken it to the way that James Marsters is the voice of Harry Dresden novels or Bronson Pinchot in the Grimnoir Chronicles. To put it in Lit terms its like Jeff Hays playing Boxy or Quantum Hughes, Annaliese Rennie as the dragon Scarlet in Radioactive Evolution, Andrea Parsenau as Sin on Somnia Online or Gothy in Apocalypse Gates. They own the series and the characters, and that is exactly what Miles does here. He embodies the work brilliantly, I really enjoy him on this series and think that everything fits together flawlessly between writing and narration.

Speaking of writing, Brooks is in over drive. I just don’t know how he has so many series out and focused all on Dungeons. Clearly he loves the genre and always seems to create detailed and interesting stories and this one just keeps getting more intriguing as Fred initiates an all out war between himself and the council of dungeons, finds a surprising ally, learns a lot of his true history, and does a crap ton of fighting along the way.

This is a book in which Brooks really shines as he manages to give each character some screen time, so to speak, highlight Fred’s virtues and flaws, and instill the concern that the dungeons have over what Fred represents without making it feel like fluff or filler. There is no waste of space here. The story is set at a nice pace, it is tempered and doesn’t seem to run in spurts made up of action and then events to advance the plot forward. I really think that Brooks is an incredible writer and don’t understand why he isn’t a bigger name in the community. The man has multiple series, has a record of excellence, and is highly active. Right now he sort of feels like a big dog in the corner that no one sees as much as they should. He is quickly becoming a touchstone for Dungeon based novels.
My final score. 8.4 stars. The book does everything it should and goes a step better in most cases, and as we are getting near the end it is also revealing a lot of secrets and surprises about the world and Fred himself. The revelations Fred gets are shocking and help him define his character as he adjusts to the “truth” of what happened to him and his family. I can’t wait to see how Brooks ends this.

Best Book in the Series... So Far.

Dungeon World 4 continues Fred's struggle for survival and begins Fred's goal of rebalancing the relationship between the Cores and the Humans. Miles Meili brings the Supreme Core Council to life and maintains his exciting narration throughout this action-packed book. Initially, I was concerned by the larger cast, but Meili handles the many voices with style. Great book and great narration.

Fun from start to finish

There are quite a few battles in this book and it keeps the story moving along nicely. I really enjoyed the dungeon building and new traits that Fred is able to discover. This is another great book in the series I can’t wait to read the next one. Thanks for the great listen Jonathon Brooks and Miles Meili.

Where do I sign up to be a Shard?

I can only assume if you’re reading this than you have followed Mr. Brooks story as intensely as I have. Well what I can say is, he didn’t disappoint. I cannot wait for further installments of this story. The character development, although a bit awkward at times, was far better than previous books, the battles were just plain cool, and the scope and breadth of the story also increased quite dramatically. Highly recommend!

Best so far in the series

I really enjoyed the start of this series, but found the third just didn't grab me as much- so I'm very happy I kept going into this book. I think it had the proper proportions of action, prompts, development, character interactions, worldbuilding, etc. The addition of perspectives and information from some new characters was a huge positive shift to me, I look forward to reading the fifth when it drops!

Epic!

Great story and narration!

Fred and the crew are back, and in a very sticky situation! Having just formed a token dungeon under the city of Allroads the city is under attack by the dungeon factions, and the jury is out on how the people of Allroads will deal with the situation and with Fred!

Miles does a great job of narrating this story and bringing the characters to life.

This book compares well to the other books in this series and is a lot of fun to listen to!

I cant wait to find out what happens next!

Can't wait until the next book

Another great book in the series. Just wish it was longer as the cliff hanger in the end was frustrating!
