Description

In a distant world five times the size of planet Earth, dungeons and their dungeon cores have become the top of the food chain.  

Millions of dungeons inhabit the planet, utilizing the various human kingdoms as a source of much-needed mana to facilitate their own growth; in turn, the humans delve into the dungeons and acquire their own power in the form of essence, which allows them to develop and enhance themselves in a multitude of different ways.  

It is a symbiotic relationship that has lasted centuries and has brought about a measure of peace.  

Far in the Northern wilds where no humans (and therefore - no dungeons) regularly frequent, a young man is left alone when his parents are murdered suddenly and unexpectedly.  

Now, without friends, family, or even supplies, he embarks on a journey to find out who targeted his parents - and upon whom he needs to enact his revenge.  

Along the way, he discovers something about himself that his parents said was impossible from the moment he was born.  

Will he learn to control the new powers he has gained, or will his newly awakened dungeon core abilities consume him?  

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

dumb mc

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.

Really good, Very polished!

This is a very cool and well thought out game-lit/LitRPG world. The characters are mostly believable and the system is complex and interesting. There are lots of classes and interesting dungeon mechanics. A great purchase for lit RPG and dungeon core fans!

twist on a core

First like everyone has stated it is a twist to dungeon core books.. A fantastic twist in my books. Very unique in its "stats" and skills. Reading this had me asking at the end of every chapter what could happen next.

The characters in this book felt real like they had purpose even the bard maid or a street runner not random nameless npcs.

Unfortunately the only problems I had were some time skips I wish didnt happen just for my own greed of knowledge and wanting a 20 hr+ fantastic read... The 1st book is definitely a sey up to the series i will be waiting for anxiously daily.

Disappointing

The premise is interesting, and the author has done some interesting world building to expand on the dungeon core premise. Unfortunately, that seems to be where the work stopped. Everything else RPG-related seems just crufted on. There's very little depth to anything that isn't dungeon core related, and that includes the characters. I kept wondering if this was meant to be teen-lit litrpg, but then the story ends before it really even starts. As for dialog, it is really stilted. I can't believe this was the author's twelvth book; it feels like a first book in strong need of a good editor.

Then there's the gaps in time. There's a three month fast-forward towards the end which really feels like "insert book two here". That's after there's already been a gap halfway through the book which is variously described as 12, 15, 18, or 24 months long, followed soon after by another 1 month gap. Basically, any time the character might do anything solo, it just gets skipped.

The stats also get quite annoying. They should come when actually needed, not as often as they do here. As example, on the single dungeon dive that occurs, stats are given beforehand, after each and every *room* of the dungeon, then again afterwards. Take the nine hours runtime and figure this in; I'd guess that at least an hour is simply the stats being read over and over again.

This *could* turn into a good book, but it's all premise, no story. It sets up a quest for the main character, but never advances along that quest. He is given so many unbalancing skills that he's the ultimate cheat character right from his first day dungeoneering. The world could be interesting, but the story set in that world is so barebones, I have no investment in it.

Too short

A fair addition to litrpg libraries and an interesting take on dungeon core stories. My only real complaint is that it feels like the end of the book should be more of a middle. Too often it seems that authors are now splitting what would be a decent length book into several installments... it's too bad.

Worst narrator I've heard in a while.

The narrator ends nearly every sentence with an upward intonation. I can't even hear what he's saying over that pattern, and it drives me insane.
Can't really rate the story accurately, since I couldn't pay attention.

I don't know how he did it.

Writing about a dungeon in a world of millions of dungeons and he made it work.
The MC and supporting characters are fleshed out well.
There are well done battle scenes and he doesn't over do it.
Brooks really brought me into this world which is exactly what I wanted. As a first book in the series this is what I expect. The introduction and building up of the characters are done so well that you want to keep traveling with them into the next book.
I've read a couple of Brooks' books and really enjoyed them but I was skeptical that this series would be as good. I would go so far as to say that this book is on par with the first book in Dakota Krout's dungeon series. I'm hoping the rest of the series will be as good.
Meili does an amazing job as usual. He does a solid 4 to 5 star job in bringing this story alive in your mind.
If you are a dungeon core and LitRPG lover this book, and hopefully series, is for you. Definitely worth the time you'll miss sleeping or doing the dishes.

Excellent idea with lots of potential

Dungeon world combines the world of adventurers and dungeons in a way that I didn't think would work until I listened to it. I really enjoyed the how innocent the main character seemed while getting up all sorts of shenanigans. This book was more of a set up book than I usually like, but having read further into the series, it is worth it.

The fantasy genre I didn't know I needed!

I love all manner of fantasy novels and rpg/mmo games but I didn't know about the Dungeon Core genre. Little did I know how perfect this genre is for me.

This was a fun listen and great intro in the genre. I impatiently await the next book in this series!

summary sucks

the summary really does not explain this book is or what it's supposed to be when I read the summary I was not going to get this book but I said screw it I need a new book and I can always return it if it's not good but this book is actually really good surprisingly I wish she explained a little more and how he was made and more about his parents but maybe in the second book will find out more

Fred's Recombinant Core is Funner Than Common Core

First, props to Jonathan Brooks for creating an ingenious take on dungeon delving along with writing a captivating story to go along with it. Also, Miles Meili narrating performance is very enthusiastic and lively.

The only downside is the stats sections that all litRPG novels include which tend to interrupt the flow of the story telling. Actually, in the written form, the stats sections wouldn't be too bad since a reader has the ability to either spend the time to delve into them to gain a deeper understanding of the various attributes or quickly skip over them. With audiobooks, this is much more frustrating since the narrator simply spews them out in a fluid manner that makes it difficult for a listener to gain much understanding of them all and skipping forward is a tedious series of fast-forwards/fast-reverses until they eventually reach the end without missing the story continuation. It is for this reason that, while I enjoy the newer genre, I'm often hesitant in choosing it as an audio format. Note: Jonathan Brooks is the first author I'm aware of who understood this problem and found a great way to solve the problem in book 2. More on that in Book 2's review.

The character development for the Fred is understandably fairly extensive considering that he's the MC and Eisa's, while not as extensive a backstory, is sufficient to make her an interesting tier 2 character. The rest of the characters are adequately defined to provide a clear understanding of their roles. World building is not overly done and the many dungeons and their cores are well described.

I enjoyed the story and it was a pleasurable listening experience.

Wonderful series!

I love the series good concept, and great plot! My only issue was that some of the conversations seemed mechanical in their simplistic phrases and word usage. Other than that absolutely LOVED it!
