Publisher's Summary

Ryker only had one goal in his life right now:

Turn a certain adventuring guild into a flaming wreck while dancing merrily through the smoldering ruins. All for the chance to get back at a handful of people.

It didn’t work out that way though.

At all.

He’d become the Count of Dungeon, made a hostage, married off to the false queen’s daughter against his will, and had his county made ground zero for a religious war.

To top all that off, the Dark Lord of the North wants to see Ryker personally.

The smoldering ruins of Dungeon have been cleared, the patterns reset, and Ryker has a task that is more than likely too much for him.

Hold Dungeon, and give Lauren, the rightful queen, some breathing room.

Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

What's up with the harem?

I actually enjoyed the first book enough to try listening to the second, but enough is enough. The main character is running around having sex with every female character in the book. (come to think of it I believe ALL the other characters are female.) Now, this might sound awsome to all you horny 14 year old wankers out there, but I have to dossapoint you. There are no hot steaming sexscenes for you to fanatsize about. The author skips the graphic details, and rather focuses on the women praising the main man for what a great lover he is, and discussing how they can share him between them like the submissive little females they are. Feels like the author is overcompensating for something if you ask me. I smell Daniel Schinofen.

this is a romance novel not a fantasy Adventure

if you like romance novels and unnecessary sex and people constantly professing their love for each other then you may like this book. If you are into beastiality, you will definitely like this book. If you are looking for part 2 of a fantasy Adventure series, you will be very disappointed by this book. The Dungeon barely comes up in this book and it is a very lazy attempt at keeping the dungeon in the story. the war changes directions three or four times and we have no idea how or why it happens. The dungeon becomes a joke when Riker is able to create dungeons wherever he wants. There is absolutely no difference between life and death in this book. There are actually even a couple of scenes where one person has sex with the other person's soul. If that's not bad enough, two of the characters get sexually excited by performing spells together. Enough is enough. This is nothing more than a romance novel involving one man and about eight different women and a minotaur all having sex with each other and delivering sexual innuendo lines every 30 seconds. I feel like I got cheated out of 2 credits. I bought what I thought was a fantasy novel and I ended up with a romance novel. The only thing missing in this awful awful book is Fabio on the front cover.

Love the author, hate this book.

I've enjoyed this Author's other books quite a bit, listening to them several times, even the first book in this series. This one started off pretty well, but there was a cringiness building over time that grated on my nerves and finally after the 8th hour of this book, I couldn't do it anymore.

There was a sincere hope that the story would outweigh the cringiness of the lovey-dovey, smoochy-woochy harem elements that just became too overbearing, but it didn't. I knew from the first book that there would he harem stuff in here and that was fine, but it takes over and the story is the backseat to a harem romance novel.

Sorry Will, I really tried.

Just stop reading the series at this point.

Ok, so I don't mind harem books. But Reason please. MC meets several women and because he had 3 conversations with them and "was nice" they get married. more than 70% of this book is the MC just stating " I Love you and I will do anything for you" and then the women melt and agree to marry him. No reason other than that. The parts of the book that weren't bad harem was good but then some stupid cheesy line comes up and you just want to vomit. So much potential ruined because of too much bad reasonless harem.

No need to continue reading this series

There are spoilers in my review, so reader beware.

First of all, I really enjoyed the first book. The main character was a likeable anti-hero who actively pursued the death of those who wronged him. The first book had a decent plot and everything was well thought out, at least I thought so. There were sex scenes that were interjected periodically but nothing that took away from the over all plot of the story.

Now, the 2nd book is the complete opposite of the first. 1) the MC has become a true hero and is trying to put his grudges aside for those he loves. However, a large portion of the book turned into a bad erotica story. Sex with his harem pervaded the story and really distanced me from the book. I found it a struggle to finish this book by about 1/2 way through because the sex scenes were added in at some of the most inappropriate times. I am not saying that having scenes like this takes away from a book and is bad, but the sheer quantity of the scenes and their placement within the story was what caused me to have issues. Ex: Trying to determine the best course of action on how to protect the dungeon and the town (also named Dungeon). He slaps together a plan, with very little thought on if this is the best plan or if there is room for improvement, so he can go sleep with his harem. Ex. Literally trying to run away from the Dark Church. They are hiding at night and trying to conserve energy before setting off in the morning. He is described as being completely exhausted, so instead of going to sleep, they have sex again.

It is these kinds of inappropriately placed sex scenes that bother me more so then the probably 20-30% of the book being dedicated to these scenes.

Now I miss the whiny wizard voice.

I'm not saying it didn't have to grow on me first.
Another excellent book in the ongoing Arand multiverse. I'm having some suspicions on who the Lord of the North is based on those resurrection comments too...

Great sequel that leaves me wanting the next one!

Absolutely loved it. Cannot believe how it ties into Otherlife, SSoSH and Wild Wastes. Cannot wait for book 3 now, as well as the continuations to the other series.
