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 narathion 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..

Worst ending

It was okay all the way to the ending.
Hugo paints this world of amazing things just to rip it away in the end. The laziest ending of lazy ending.

Excellent Continuation of the Series

This series is one of my favorites and I eagerly await the next volume. Hugo Huesca does so much in these books, a large and well built world, flushed out and suitably complex characters, and both mini story lines to make each book satisfying and an overarching story to leave you wanting more of the series. The blurred lines of good and evil in this series gives it a more realistic feel. There's evil characters doing evil, evil characters doing good, good characters doing good, and good characters doing evil. And then there's "evil" folks behaving in an over-the-top parody of evil, because they think it what they should do to fit in. Also, this series has resisted becoming a harem story. Nothing against harem stories, but variety is nice. :)

Narration is by Jeff Hays and the Soundbooth Theater gang. Everything I have ever heard by them has been fantastically done and they do not disappoint here. They are the leading edge in not just narration, but audiobook performance.

When the next book comes out, my Audible point will be ready.
