Publisher's Summary

The secrets of the factory of nightmares are free for the taking...and Dungeon Lord Edward Wright intends to claim them.

War is coming to Starevos, delivered by the navy of the Kingdom of Heiliges. The only hope Edward and his friends have at surviving the wrath of the Light is an ancient Factory whose defenses are as deadly as those seeking to conquer it.

However, Ed is not the only Dungeon Lord who seeks the power of the factory. To save the Haunt, Ed must face war-forged Dungeon Lords older and crueler than he is, and everything he has learned shall be tested to its utter limit.

Even before the Endeavor starts, dark forces converge around the Haunt, threatening to drown Ed and his friends under a mass of corpses. If Ed is not careful, he may be forced to become as terrible as his enemies just to outlive them.

In fact, that may well be his only chance at victory.

Will Edward have what it takes to prove he is the meanest Dungeon Lord around, or will he become a footnote in the annals of history?

There's only one way to find out.

absolutely astounding!

Remains to be one of the best creations in the litrpg genre. The suspense in the epilogue makes wishing for a speedy release of the 5th installment of the series!

best book yet

Great story and character development. The plot is moving along nicely and the mc is a becoming a badass. Loved the factory tho not a fan of that crappy neutral gods prophecy hanging over him like an axe souring his efforts. Hopefully that resolves quickly as it kinda stifles his growth with his companions. Otherwise amazing work as always.

Outstanding!

After being let down by some of my other favorite series this one really stood out as being up to par with the author's other books amd really being the best one in the series so far.

The narration was also extremely well done and really sets the bar for how other audio books are done.

Exceptional

I love this series, it's characters are realistic, the opposing views of the characters are well thought out and perfectly understandable and their interactions are a joy to listen to.
From Alder being the stereotypical Bard he aspires to be, to Lavey's mad science, to Galio's duty and shame, and to Ed's determination to do the absolute best for the people he's taken responsibility for.

and even the newly introduced characters and villians have world views and motives that are easy to understand, and difficult to outright tell them that they're wrong.

and the Ending has me screaming for more. I will not spoil it, but it was better than I could have imagined.

I don't normally..

I don't normally leave reviews for books I don't have to unless they are exceptionally good. This happens to be one of, if not the best book in the series. This book is 20 hrs, how could it possibly not drag on? Just the opposite in fact, by the end, I did a double take when I realized I'd already finished it. All around, this series hasn't lost any of its luster 4 or is it 5 books in? The afterward will have you dying with both laughter and giddiness! I absolutely can NOT wait until the next book comes out! Hats off to Jeff and Company at Soundbooth studios as well as Mr. Huesca. Keep up he great work, your fans appreciate it more than you know!

Epic.

I am impressed.

This series was one of the first I ever picked up. From the beginning, the writing was top notch. I had issues with a few of the voices but have since gotten used to them. Each character (the ones that matter) is easily distinguishable and most of Soundbooths monster noises and sound effects worked really well.

This fourth book is an amazing addition to the series where we reunite with our favorite antagonist, the Lights strongest inquisitor, and a petty demi-God. All of the Dungeon Lords, The Haunts Minions, The Lights Servants, and an even more insidious characters clash in an epic battle. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.

You cannot miss this book. The ending had the perfect twist that has me even more pumped for the next book. I cant help but look forward to what happens next. I give this book a solid 9.5/10

if you're impatient you might want to wait

This is so good that it makes you mad when you finish it. I genuinely did not see the plot twist coming. Highly recommended but if you are the type of person that hates waiting for the next book then you might want to wait before listening because the ending will have you yelling for more,

A good book,

Its a very good book, however, I gotta wonder if either Jeff Hays is incompetent or just a troll.

He does very good voices, but ever since he started using sound effects and background noises, its like he forgets
to give it a proper listen before saying "Right, thats good. Off with you".

The very start of the book with the mine carts and the background noises, it gave me a splitting headache
to the point where I wanted to skip the chapter or just stop listening all together.

Sure, later on, its no longer a problem, however it seems like its like this with ALL books Jeff Hays
does, hell. I remember listening to another book where the background noises drowned out the damn
narration, but, just like in this book, its only the very start that has the issue with loud/grating background
noises, which is why I am unsure if Jeff Hays is a troll or just doesnt care to quality check the book..

Disappointed

I thoroughly enjoyed the first three books. As a fairly avid listener who churns through numerous novels each month, I was pleasantly surprised by Huesca's Dungeon Lord series ... until this book. The character development, relationship building and "fun" that earned by admiration early on in the series are conspicuously absent in Ancient Traditions. On the other hand, the logic inconsistencies were amplified. For example, objectivity is supposed to keep the magic of Ivalis in-check so the world evolves with clearly defined magical laws. And yet, objectivity allows heroes from another world to be magically transported to Ivalis on an ongoing basis and devastate the balance of power. Then, it allows mind broods to develop, steal the magic of its victims and jeopardize the entire world. There there's Gallio, the main character on the side of the light. He continually ignores the hypocrisy and evil within his on order, yet steadfastly focuses on the Dungeon Lord, who has consistently displayed his desire to "fight the good fight". The continued conflict between the two is too contrived. Time to look for another series.

Boring and a grind

Having enjoyed the previous 3 books in this series, I fully expected to be entertained in this one as well.. But no such luck. The plot was mediocre at best, and the better part of the entire book focused solely on the battle/race, all the while not providing any real trouble as the MC has evolved a thicker plot armor than Jon Snow!

At no point in this entire book were I even remotely worried for the MC or his Haunt.

Hugo should be able to do better, I know he can do better. This feels like a draft.
