Description

Enemies emerge everywhere. Stagnation starts seeming standard. Results require Ruthlessness.

Joe has been moving deeper into his study of ritual magic and further away from his combat team. He's learning more and more, but more often than not needs to choose between his research and squad leadership. Improving the town is a huge help to the guild, and they have been pushing to increase their power.

Their rapid increases have not gone unnoticed. The guild receives an ultimatum, delivered by assassins and signed with blood. If they continue to accrue power and fame, each and every person with a grievance against the guild will come to smash the town back to square one.

With tensions coming to a head, all Joe wants to do is leave it all behind and reach the next area. He flatly refuses the guild when they ask him to devise lethal options to use against the gathering army, but when the time comes...even Joe is unsure if he'll step into the limelight and show everyone exactly how ruthless he can be.

incredible Liste

I loves this series. Well read and a great story overall. Read the first 4 books first to understand the context. But even more so read the Divine Dungeon series first as it does fit in loosely and it is fun to hear the prices that tie it together.

Book is great, blooper reel at end is top notch

The book was highly enjoyable and entertaining. But what was the cherry on top was the blooper reel at the end.

Love this series love this author love this narrator

This series gets better and better and it is picking up steam and not slowing down.

Can’t wait for the next instalment and the next one.

I also want to know what happened to the characters from dungeon deposed. ( another great series by this author)

Would highly recommend this series, author and narrator. Well worth the credits

loved it, as always

As the saying goes, I would read Krout's grocery lists if published.

Took me a while, though, to figure out WhY JoE kEpT TaLkiNg LiKe hE wAs tRiPPiNg oUt oN sOmEThIng... Then I remembered that the narrator changed from the first few books. I'm going to listen to the first books again to see if I'm imagining the personality shift, if it's the narrator's new take or if Joe really does get as weird as he seems. Threw me off, but didn't detract from my experience too much.

Why do they have to ruin a good thing?

Luke Daniels is a very good narrator. The low score is for the blooper reel at the end. Blooper reels are fine but I have children that listen to this series. Now I have to restrict them from listening to the book on their own because someone thought it was a good idea to add a bunch of curse words at the end of a book that didn't have any.

been waiting for this book for a while.

This one was great. Still can't get over the voice changes from the previous narrator being changed to what they are now, but it was still good. I'm glad the author finally came back to the main story as I didn't find the side stories appealing. If you're a fan of the series, you won't be disappointed but if you're new to the series then alot of subtle hints will go over your head and you most likely won't like it because its confusing to you. Would definitely recommend and will be listening to it again for any information I might have missed.

My only gripe that isnt really a gripe, is that in classic Dakota fashion I find my self so frustrated going from chapter to chapter because he leaves just that little bit of suspense in the more high anxiety places that make you want to both return the book and skip ahead to the next chapter to see what happens. Only to leave you at the end of the book wanting to listen to the next one immediately.

Thanks Dakota, keep em coming.

It makes me sad

TLDR: The story is good, better than Raze, but the narration has gotten worse.

I liked the story, this book felt more cohesive than Raze did, and fleshed out the world by adding new skills, and explaining some of the deities (with references back to the divine dungeon). Joe can still be kind of off putting, random, and jerk for no reason, which makes him harder to like, but that’s reasonably well explained and works out towards the end.

Somehow Luke Daniels has gotten worse since he took over narrating for Krout. It’s already extremely jarring to switch narrators, and I get that was likely a funding/producers choice or whatever, but it’s no excuse for such a poor performance. Luke can be great like in the iron Druid chronicles, or Magic 2.0, but this series has been phoned in. There’s a lot of mispronounced words, the character accents slip at times, no effort at all was made to keep any sort of audio consistency with the first 2 books.

Also there’s a blooper reel at the end, with no warning or intro, I thought my file had corrupted or my phone was breaking.

aggravating.

the auther keeps throwing so much crap and negative situations only at the MC over and over again he never gets ahead and the moment he does everything changes and it becomes a waste or gets stolen by some gimmick the author threw out. Seems like the author loves treating the mane character like crap and the only thing the MC can do is continuously fail for random reasons that come out of the wood work for the sole reason that the MC got slightly ahead. all these other chosen of deities don't go through this crap only the MC. I will def not get the next one this one was so aggravating.

Another good performance and story. I can't bear

🐻 the wait for the next one. If you enjoy the previous books you will enjoy this one as well.

Thrusting codpieces and evil bankers

Another great book in the series.

Being exceptional can often be a problem when that exceptionalism creates envy and jealousy among those who want what you work for. Joe finds himself having to face those who want to keep him and his guild stagnant and powerless as they face their greatest challenge yet. Instead of accepting their probable doom both Joe and his buddies work ever harder to be the best they can be and help their guild and friends rise to the occasion.

Love how bit by bit we’re getting to see a connection between all of the author’s books both new and old. His creation of what is essentially an extended universe gives a nod to his fans that have followed him since the early books. There is no pandering though so it’s still an approachable world that he is creating for those who’ve yet to read his other series.

I’ve been wondering for a while what his inclusion of so many puns and dad jokes reminded me of and it finally came to me. For those of you who remember the Xanth Series, much like Piers Anthony you’ll find his tongue and cheek use of puns to be a fun reminder of how puns can be fun even while groaning inside.

Luke Daniels provides another excellent performance and conveys the intent and range of emotions that is needed for the characters. My only problem is that he voices some of my faVorite characters and I’m sometimes picturing some of those characters while listening to the book. Not his fault, probably mine for liking so many of the books he voices.

Overall great experience and definitely recommend to those who are fans of LitRPG/GameLit/Fantasy/Puns and Coffee.

Story was good but the narrator wasn't.

If you're thinking of getting this then you probably already know what to expect with the story, but the narrator; for me anyway, made this hard to listen to. His inflection was all over the place, and very inconsistent.
The book itself is consistent with the previous books and worth enjoying if you enjoyed the story up till this point.
