Description

Jupter Tech's headquarters, Olympus, has been attacked. Lives have been lost in the real world. Alexander and friends must now thwart the servants of the Dark One both in and out of the game. With a few new allies, the Greystone Guild moves out of the noob zones to take on the challenges presented by the ruins of Dire Keep and its inhabitants. They must conquer, rebuild, and defend the Dire Lands against attacking forces.  

The players (and Fibble) must now overcome tougher dungeons, and more dangerous foes. Even betrayal by one of their own! Soundbooth Theater presents the long anticipated sequel to one of the most beloved LitRPG titles of the year! Jeff Hays has stepped up to take on the narration, and although Laurie Catherine Winkel has taken a back seat for this installment, she still reprises her roles of all the ladies of the Greystone Guild, and of course, Fibble! 

The Soundbooth Theater team for this production: 

  • Jeff Hays - Narration, sound design 
  • Laurie Catherine Winkel - Sasha, Fibble, and the rest of the female cast 
  • Dalton Lynne - Proofing and editing 
  • Griffin Malnar - Editing and mastering

Loss of Potential

I have to say that this series is rather infuriating. I read the author Pathways first two books but this series seems like it was written by an entirely different person. Alex, our MC, is a young adult of an indeterminate age who is the son of a CEO of a multi-billion dollar corporation, he is a new immersion tester in their most popular MMO. His mother was unfortunately killed several years ago by a terrorist organization. His Father took it upon himself to enact vengeance and showed his son a recording of the execution of said criminals, as a teenager, and told his son "No Mercy". This seems to have shaped our MC into a man with a sick sense of justice. In the first book our MC runs across a group with red-skulls over their heads, indicating they are Player Killers, immediately judges them as two-bit-scum, and decides to basically torture them by killing them over and over. No one in the party is particularly concerned except Lainey, but after she is brought aside and told about his mother, she is immediately okay with it. He adopts his fathers "No mercy policy". This theme of execution, complete mockery, and humiliation continues for every Player Killer member throughout both books. Almost all the npc's and players LAUGH at the torture and humiliation. This is in no way justified, even if they are later revealed to be terrorists. Wrong is Wrong. No human, no kind elderly, no innocent child, NOT A SINGLE PERSON ever tells him he is wrong. There are bound to be different people with differing viewpoints that, like most of us, see that the MC is sick in his sense of twisted justice. Everything is written as if it is black and white. The MC is "charismatic", charitable, intelligent, and forward thinking. The bad guys are all apparently idiots, who despite playing the game for years to support themselves, get their asses handed to them at every turn and can't help but spout profanity. There is no smart villian that gets the upper hand. There is no dumb, good guy who makes a mistake. The only character I really enjoy is Fibble. Pew Pew. Other things that upset me is that all the Dwarves are cookie-cutter characters. They all sound the same, act the same, and talk the same. The BWAHAHAHA! that each dwarve makes is literally copied and pasted into each of their conversations. The King, The Dwarves King, A 6000 year old wizard, and a LITERAL DRAGON all love and help the MC and all hold the same dispositions. They all have the same personalities, lovable, kind, and just. The "Seee Ya" catchphrase is incredibly annoying. Everyone laughs when talking to Alex. The MC has the a literal god on his side. (Along with the rest of the pantheon) Speeches. Speeches everywhere. The MC reiterates information several times to separate party members or NPC's, such as the attack in the real world. An Author should never repeat information that the readers all ready know, definitely not in the same way. The MC hands out gold, money, jewels, and artifacts like they are candy. Everyone boggles at his "charitable" nature and initially refuse but don't take much convincing. It feels like he is buying them to me. (For all he doesn't want to be treated differently) The STAT system and Litrpg elements don't matter. The MC can create new spells, enchant Epic level items and build an entire town in 4 days around level 20. When he is level 40 he still has 27 unused attribute points. What kind of gamer does that? An OP one. He wipes the floor with level 50's 70's and 80's. Mostly because the bad guys are stupid. There are no real challenges, no near escapes or any real losses. Also, the narrator switched from Laurie to Jeff Hays somewhere along the way. Personally I love Jeff Hays. Soundbooth Theatre is always great and I feel the need to give them a shout-out. Unfortunately, they couldn't save this series for me. I feel the need to go on for so long because while most reviews I read either praise the book without any real mention of its content, or berate the book but don't go into enough detail. With this I hope that you can at least be informed with what you will be buying. This book is a great example of writing and character development you should NOT do. I do not recommend this series. There are plenty of good LITRPG's on audible that you can listen to instead. I cannot understand why there are so many positive reviews. Maybe you will enjoy this book and love all the little quirks it has. But I have said my piece and will let you decide.

uh.. ok..

rich and powerful bully bullies other bullys.. traipsing through the vr world destroying the lives of most of the other people he encounters without a care or really a reason.. read like the author got spawn camped once when he was ten on a pvp server and never let go. now writing the self dialogue of what he wanted to do to them..

I have only one more to listen too and I will be finished with all of Dave Willmarth's audio books. they rock, good natured litrpg. they have good action, the right amount of game mechanics without repeating stats to death. they have a story and plot that keeps your interest andparys that may choke you up and parts that make you laugh. Thanks Dave, after the next book I will be waiting for new releases. I highly recommend this author

Nice Followup to the first book.

Nice Followup to the first book. The change in primary narrator does not diminish the story.

Just NO!!

I forced myself to buy and listen to this book even though reviews of it and already having read the first one did not leave me with much hope that it would be any kind of an improvement. A large reason for why I finally buckled under and got it was that the Soundbooth Theater team are the narrators for this story. They usually do a great jobb.. This one not so much.. tbh I was rather shocked at the poor quality of work they did. I found more then a few sentences being narrated in the wrong characters voice. On the whole it was not at all up to snuff. So I was even more disappointed then I thought possible. I will not be giving this so called author a third chance. For anyone reading this review I suggest that you browse the so called critical reviews on amazon for more in-depth information on the faults and inadequacies that this book and the series as a whole suffer from. My recommendation is: Do not get this one!!

keeps getting better

I really enjoyed how the author was able to make this story with using both the game world an the real world. as the pk guild take them on in both worlds with epic fighting in the game world an forms of terrorism in the real world. an they also gain many more guild members an a dragon. so if you enjoyed the first book like i did get this 2nd book. or you did not enjoy i say try giving this 2nd book a chance it gets more in depth an also has town building in it an really starts to get a good plot to it now they know that it is the dark one doing all these things

I really dislike when books end

I don't like it when books and in the middle of a paragraph it just seems like lazy writing. I like to feel good at the end of a book with a finshed feeling. This book ends in the middle of a fight scene. I can't leave the house with this virus quarantine going on so it is important that I satisfied my imagination. I need to choose my books carefully just in case the place in the book is the last place my imagination will travel.

Like the book BUT....

The book is good but in order to enjoy it every time a female spoke I had to skip 30 seconds ahead. 90% of the time the women are basically annoying objects with nothing important to say or do. If the author would make the women like real people that didn’t act like teenagers the book would be a masterpiece.

Enjoyed different social structures

Yes, nice to see new societal viewpoint a but second book in series and this feels like something written by a Russian conservative red neck. Great for others but not my taste Example of top of head: - kingdom based justification of moral guidance from the hero. And then. king of “No Mercy”. If the bad guys are really really evil - “Pansy Ass” really as. A taut From hero - no governmental oversight. Very Anne Ryan’s or Puntin - oh welll only 1/2 through and expect more - good readers predectible story line and pre occupation with tortures Enough
