Description

The eighth novel of the internationally acclaimed Chaos Seeds saga.

A mesmerizing tale reminiscent of the brutality of Goblin Slayer and the majesty of Game of Thrones.

Audible's Customer Favorite of the Year! 

Number one audiobook 2017.

Welcome my friends! 

Welcome...to “The Land"!

The battle of the dead was won, but at a great cost. Sion, leader of the Mist Village, was left with only pain and regret as Richter was claimed by the abyss. 

What no one but the abandoned chaos seed knows is that he narrowly avoided the curse of the lich Singh, a curse that still hangs above his head. Now, surrounded by miles of darkness and tons of crushing rock, Richter has to find his way back into the light. 

The only problem is that this monster of a man is being pursued by monsters, a demon, and his own foolish choices. Faced with all the dangers of the deep dark, what will Richter say when the buried horrors of The Land come a calling and asked if he's paid his dues? 

Well he'll look right back, stare that horror in the eye, and say, "Yes sir, the check is in the mail!" 

Welcome back my friends! Welcome back...to The Land!

16 Hours of nothing...

Big fan of the series and love the story; except this sixteen hour cone of verbal diarrhea...

It was like walking in circles while waiting for your buddy to level up for the entire game session. Then a literal poop scene and capped off by a cliffhanger ending.

I couldn't believe it had ended after hours of book keeping and trait descriptions.

There was almost no storytelling here, just a series of perfect coincidences that quickly became so tedious it took any suspense out of it. I wouldn't have been surprised if the next trait he unlocks is a portal home that uses 2 sticks and that one green pebble he picked up 8 pages ago...

Should have been a free download as a thank you to the fans for being patient. I will definitely not be preordering in the future.

3/5 story 6/5 narrator

honestly this is not my favourite of the series. some of the stat scenes drag on a little too long. but as always, Nick's narration makes it way better and keeps me attached to the book untill it's over.

the series itself is amazing but this is definitely not the best book in it

Real crappy Novella!!! Not negative just my own opinion

In my own opinion this book was an attempt to make his fans happy for missing previously promised release dates for this book. In fact I believe the previous times Aleron promised a release date he hadn’t even started on book 8, this book feels as if he slammed it together over a drunk weekend. Granted the guy is probably busy and I’m sure crazy fans wanting the next book in the series can be overwhelming. Side note before I get into this abomination of a book. Some have mentioned Aleron did this book as a money grab! It’s possible but I doubt it, anyways!!!

This book has little to no character or plot development. This book is a bloody disaster, I mean come on you Sod Aleron, you are better than this. Look heres a comparison for this so called book 8 which is actually a real bad Novella, if you are or were a gamer—-> Do you remember the magic days of Diablo 2 and the much better Lords of Destruction? Yeah those were great days. Now fast forward to 2012, yep the travesty that became Diablo 3 and all the shat that was. Well thats how book 8 is from the rest of the series, I mean how do you go from a great book like 7 to this crap?? How Aleron??

Go ahead and buy this book like I did, even know there are thousands of reviews similar to the one I just wrote. But you know what, we have the option to return book for a full refund which is what I’m going to do right After I hit that submit button.

This is the second book Ive returned out of over 250 books I currently own. I mean crap, the other book I returned was an unknown author that seemed to have a 50IQ and probably couldn’t write out a Chinese food menu. That should about sum up how bad this book is, oh and if yer wondering about my grammar? Haha I don’t really care, I aint got no development editor like Aleron does.

Don’t forget to give me a 5 star review wherever you do that... bye

Interesting story but Less “the land” and more “the tunnel”

I’ve enjoyed all of the books in this series so far and this one though enjoyable was far short of what I’ve learned to expect.
Where the rest of the books in Aleron’s Land series consistently develop the world and all its characters while primarily following The main characters journey this entry focuses solely on the protagonist.
There are significant changes to the character in this book which are interesting but take up so much time to process I found myself wanting to skip chapters just to get back to the story.
We are also left with a cliff hanger regarding significant side characters right off the bat that are not resolved or even discussed further in to the story.
Nick Podohl’s narration is fantastic but even with such a great voice actor hearing just the one characters perspective for so long gets dull by the end.

5 star performance
1/5 star Story.

One big boring filler episode

It is like he had no idea how to write this book so he just made it into a big filler quest and doesn't even finish it! A big waste of time. The only upside was the Nick reading the book.

Disappointing

I was a huge fan off the books preceding this one. They took us on a magical adventure with twists and turns and " oh no " moments. The Land: Monsters felt like I was listening to a stat block. I swear the first 14 hours are leveling up, dealing with the events of the last book, then we get a full chapter about how badly his poop hurts him. I skipped parts, listening to every skill rank up when all you really needed was the last one drove me crazy. It picks up towards the end as Richter finally gets his ass in gear.

It also felt like Aleron felt the reader would have forgotten what some of his stats would do and had to go over them again, for an entire chapter. it felt like this book went no where, and that was really disappointing.

Still the best!..but..

Tho the book isn't on the same level as the last one in terms of progression and content, this is still HANDS DOWN the best litrpg on audible. While I personally love listening to Richter level up,get new skills and make tough decisions I can understand why after such a wait some might be disappointed with what little we get ,especially after the full course meal that was Predator.

There were a few chapters that really didn't need to be added in at all, and the bit where Richter does a inner monologue about why he should/shouldn't do something...and then proceeds to do the opposite gets kinda old and seems like its only used to meet a word count.

Dispite those little gripes if you made it to book eight you already know what my boy Alerons about. The college frat level humor, the pop culture references, the borderline word porn of stats and progression systems, the promises on the horizon..its incredible that we have just scratched the surface of what the land has to offer and we are 8 books in!

Keep em coming king kong! And never change!

Way too short

I’ve been an avid follower of Alaron Kong since his first book. It was my first foray into lit RPG and I loved it. I had extremely high hopes for this book given the time it took. However, I was extremely disappointed in where it ended. Honestly, I don’t know if I’ll stay on the series. I will certainly read the reviews before I give it another chance. If you were looking for a decent continuation of the series, don’t read this book. You’re better off to wait for the next book so you don’t become as disillusioned as I was.

an intro to an unwritten book

I was 3/4 through when I realized nothing had really happened and the end was rapidly approaching. Then it ended with nothing really happening. just a bunch of stay updates and skills with some extra game mechanics rolled in. I'd have been ok it it ended there, and I found I was only a third in. but nope, just a cliffhanger ending with no satisfactory lead up.

Leaves much to be desired from a great series

Nick did a great job of narration, but the story leaves much to be desired compared to the other books in the series. Way to many notifications, and when you reach a point of there can't be any more there is. I'm still interested in seeing more of the series just hope there is more guts to the next one.

Skip this one

I bought this against my better judgement. I read this in text as soon as it came out. It's just well a failure. It focuses solely on the main character without progressing any other storyline. Even then the storyline doesn't progress. Good editing could have reduced this literary vomit to 3 or 4 hours at most. Just pass. Read a summary and wait for a better chapter this one is inconsequential. Also be aware that some reviews might not be objective listeners...I'm all about this series I love it but I'm not a fan of brigideries...and each chapter should be judged by it's own merits. I totally believe everyone else loves this but I dont
Edit: the author called on his patreon supporters to downvote this. I am happy to see that honest criticism is valued by listeners thanks.

So much pointless stats, Really only half a book

So, unfortunately the reviews of the hard copy were right and I completely understand why Aleron took so long with this. It is because he has run out of material and just fills his books with stat and skill descriptions a mile long. It is a 16 hour book. after 7 hours of reading, just under 5 HOURS, and I mean that not exaggerating, of it are just stat and skill description. A lot of which are REPEATED multiple times as if you are dumb and didn't remember and CONSTANT summaries of all the other books, sometimes also repeated. @Aleron this is your 8th book dude we know what happened you don't need to waste our time telling us what we already read.

In those 7 hours, all that actually happens is, one fight with big bugs (not very interesting), he chooses an upgrade which takes way to long, and a "mental battle" with a demon (in which to win your bar needs to be bigger than the others and the bar is determined at the start and there is nothing you can do to win against someone with a bigger bar so fighting it out is pointless when the bars have numerical values....) so pointless. It is sort of like he changed his mind of what was supposed to happen and didn't do it very well. I won't say more as not to ruin everything but it does NOT get better.

Nick Podehl is the only reason I was able to get through this book. His performance was absolutely amazing. This book does not ruin the series but this book sucks hard. If you ever re-read this series once this is all done you will just skip this book as it is just filler trash non-sense.

Wow, a entire chapter on diarrhea

I love this series but with nothing but stats and no real progression throughout. This book was a let down. There is an entire chapter on an attack of diarrhea. The attack of the poppy. Sorry but I'm going to return this one.

Completely pointless

Let first start by saying how much I love the land. it’s the whole reason I fell in love with litrpg and the last 7 books are amazing. Unfortunately this book it a waste of time and completely pointless. It’s nothing but lvl up notifications for hours I swear the main character does nothing but read notifications about skill lvl ups over and over then reads another one to go back and explain the same thing over and over. When he does start to move the story along all he does is cry about how he doesn’t have this or that and only if I still had this would this be better but I don’t so let me spend skill points on this but wait i need something I don’t have for it to work so let me reread everything 10 more times to go nowhere.This goes on for the whole book.

Dropped The Ball

Story:
The series is amazing maybe my all time favorite depending on how it continues to develop. With that said this book just missed the mark unlike the rest of the series it doesn't move the story forward and barely presents any valuable information it feels more like a fan service filler you'd do between books than a book itself. I would highly recommend this series as a whole but as an avid fan this book was a big let down.

Narration:
Nick Podehl was amazing as always.

How to kill a series

Crude taken to the extreme. The series up to this point had some uncivilized descriptive language but this one took it way beyond anything so far in this series. He should realize that crude descriptive language like this drive’s readers and listeners away.
It is one thing for someone to write crude and vulgar stuff in text format. Another to have someone right up in your face yelling it at you. With text you can skip over stuff you do not want but in audio its right there in your face. Love the story hate the delivery. Hope the author gets back to writing a great story and drops the attempts at being as crude.
The book itself covers just a few days; little happens to progress the story. You can skip this one and not miss much. I would recommend that you do not support the author by buying this book. Maybe with some luck he will get the message and get back to writing a great story. Also avoid his other new series the preview sounds like it will be another crude focus book.

Not a full book

I loved books 1-7. But this has no plot development from the previous book. It's more than half upgrade information, Statistics, Strategies, and descriptions. I can believe how little actually happens from beginning to end. In one of the other books we get a thrilling underground adventure from beginning to end, with more plot afterwards. Imagine if all of the underground in that book happened in one book without him doing anything else...thats what this is. For 16 hours. Yeah.
