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.

Great job on this one

If you enjoy this genre, then this will be one of your new favorite titles. Exactly the story you want in a well executed gaming experience but from a different perspective. Nick Podehl is amazing, as always.

Nick Podehl, 'nuff said.

The immersion and life that Nick Podehl brings to a story is uncompromising, as defining as the immersion VR pods he describes, you can feel him breathe life into a story, and when its over you feel as if you've lived it yourself.

Better and Better

I'm hooked. I'm a huge fan of Nick Podehl's voice work especially in this genre. The story is well written and the characters are a fantastic range of softhearted beasts to cruel assassins all loyal to a man who isn't supposed to exist in their world.

Overall good book, but I don’t like the hero of the story

The book is written well and the characters overall are very good. Amazing narration by nick as always. It’s just, this is one of the few times that I am rooting for the main guy to lose. He’s a prick. He somehow always wins and he’s cocky about it. He is not likable and I just can’t bring myself to get the third book.

The performance was as always amazing! The story was good, engaging and fun, but with plenty of heart.

It's over already? Oh good grief(er), need more!

Rogue Dungeon series continues right where it left off from the first book and you're right back in the action from the first chapter. I finished this book on 1.5 speed in six days. I really ought to stop doing that and try to savor these a bit more. If you've listened to the first book and are only considering this second, I will stop you right here: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! I encourage you to do so - three more hours than the first book to further appreciate the unfolding narrative!

I can't help but mention my fondness for good character dynamics and world building, so let's get that out there. Nick Podehl continues to do awesome work with his narration/voice acting. I hope it's not just me that forgets you're only hearing the one person with as much of a cast as he makes it out to be.

Roark and his team are on a path for greatness - you can see it coming from a mile away! In this second book to the series, you're going to get a little bit more of a glance behind the scenes. Only a little bit - I have not yet started the third book but I am eagerly awaiting the next credit to do so.

Could tone down the language

Pretty strong language from some of the characters, wish he'd tone that down and be creative instead
