Description

Milton Frederick was arguably the best player of Crowned Lieges of Destiny in the entire world. As the strategy coordinator for one of the top guilds, he was beginning to actually make a living from it. That was, until he was abducted by aliens.

Instead of your stereotypical grey aliens with big black eyes who like to perform anal probes upon unsuspecting victims for unknown reasons, the Collective had a more altruistic purpose. Sure, kidnapping 100 humans from Earth, ripping them away from their lives and families, and erasing their memories doesn’t sound great - but the way they saw it, the benefits would far outweigh these side-effects. Seriously, who wouldn’t want their consciousness trapped in a Station Core, subjected to the whims of a collection of alien races, and then ordered to defend against other hostile aliens for all eternity? They’d be immortal - so...bonus!

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), the Station Core now known as Milton never arrived at his destination. Severely damaged and confused about what happened to him, he woke up to find himself trapped inside a massive chicken egg on a strange, primitive world filled with curious - and deadly - creatures.

Now, in order to survive the harsh environment, Milton has to rely on a snarky, foul-mouthed AI guide to show him what it means to be a Station Core. With her help, he might just live long enough to figure out a way to get off the planet - if only he wasn’t so afraid of squirrels....

Contains litRPG/gamelit elements such as level progression and experience, optional tables, no harems, and a heavy dungeon-core emphasis.

Based on feedback, there has been an update to include the absent footnotes to the narration. Many of the longer stat table footnotes are contained in separate chapters for ease of listening.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

interested in hearing stats every 5minutes?

I really like stats but this author really over did it. I'm willing to bet atleast 40% of this book is stats. it's rather irritating because the capters are short some as short as 1min 30 seconds and after almost every chapter there are stats or useless info dumps. it really take away from the story and gives you a sense that the author was just trying to bring up his word count. I would not reccomend this book if u dont want to be skipping chapters every few minutes

A great Dungeon Core story, but

The Station Core has a pretty solid plot behind it. A pacifist alien group has come under attack. They simply do not have it in their culture to kill their opponents. Naturally, they look for someone that can do such a thing. Sadly, humans come straight to mind as being capable of this. The aliens kidnap 100 individuals and turn them into Station Cores (read Dungeon Core). A few of the military types pass away before they can be collected and converted, so they grab a few gamers to fill their roster. Something happens and one of the gamer's core is launched into space and lands on a different wold. The game core needs to rely on his gamer knowledge to figure out how to survive and what to do from here.

I really enjoyed the premise for this story and main character. I just want to be clear that this book does have one large factor that will limit it's audience. The other main character curses like a sailor. I like to listen to audible books while i'm working around the house with my kids. This is NOT a book that you can do that with. As long as you are alright with heavy language, you will enjoy this book!

His evil plan worked!

Caveat: I recieved this book for free.
So, his evil plan of making me want more worked. After listening to this book, I will be getting more books written by him in the future.
I don't like spoilers, but I do like little murder critters.

Chaotic and Fun

I've read and listened to a few dungeon core series and this has to be one of the best. The main character is quirky but funny and his companion would put any sailors mouth to shame. BEWARE the squirrels. This book is a great listen and I cannot wait for the next in the series to come out. I highly recommend this series.

Great spin on a dungeon core story!!!

Fun story and great narration!

The main character (a gamer) is kidnapped by aleans and transformed into a dungeon core and somehow finds himself stranded on an unknown planet. Shenanigans ensue!

well worth a credit!

I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out!

good but short

Enjoyed it thoroughly but short enough to dock a star, narration was solid.

Although I do appreciate the way they tried to streamline the presentation of stats in a narrated book, it was still just as cumbersome as usual and didn't help much. Though I've never had much of a problem with that except in some few books that went to silly lengths of unnecessary detail

A good start

Interesting start, but A lot of unanswered questions. Story jumps a little as main characters take a time out. I would think it put into such a position a person might do more then take a multi year nap. Hoping next story in series evens out a little more. Series has good potential, and interesting concepts.

A really fun listen.

If you enjoy LITRPG, you will enjoy this one. The story was fun and got to it quickly. I enjoyed the characters and like the world building very much. The narrator was wonderful. Finished over a weekend and will immediately start the second in the series!

Entertaining

Very entertaining dungeon core story. Initially, I thought this was going to be a space or military adventure.Although it turned out differently, it was a pretty awesome, fun adventure.

A unique dungeon core series

Not as many sci-fi LItRPG books and even less that are Dungeon core. Brooks does a good job with the setup giving the MC a lot of opportunities for growth. Already have the sequel and starting it right now. Check it out!
