Publisher's Summary

 Expansion. Uneasy alliances. Looming Madness. 

Both Cal and Dale have become stronger, each in spite of the other. 

The dungeon - Cal - knows exactly how much their power has increased and is working daily to become exponentially more powerful. His schemes are becoming more complex and his dungeon - his body - more deadly. 

Dale works to subvert the plans of the dungeon, but his opponent is onto him. Hearing a voice in his head distracts him in critical moments, requiring him to fight his mind even as he battles deadly creatures. Unbeknownst to both, their fight is not with each other - it's for the continuation of their lives. 

Madness threatens the land, and it is coming for them.

Was that a reference?

Was that a Zelda reference at 9:48:04? It was so subtle I don't know if that was on purpose.

<br /><br /><br />Good story

The series is very good, but the glee in the dungeon voice as it killed people did bug me. The voice does fit the character.

Cal and Dale are back again...

Cal and Dale are back again in this the followup to Dungeon Born. Dale and Cal continue their struggle for dominance over the area. Dale as a new Peer in both the Kingdoms and Lion and Phoenix, and Cal as the core of a dungeon coming in to its own. There are two threats in the Kingdoms one is a sickness and the other seems to be an army of filthy Necromancers. Enjoy as Cal comes into his own and Dale struggles to cultivate and improve himself so that he can deal with the steady stream of nobles that have started streaming into Mountain Dale.

Vikas Adam is once a gain masterful as the Narrator, is performance continues to make the Divine Dungeon series wildly entertaining.

If you like it, you will love it

One of the many single reader, multi voice series that dramatically improve as the story goes on and they "become" the characters.

The performance is much improved over the 1st book. The most over the top characters are toned back just a touch while the minor characters are given unique voices without becoming as cartoony.

The book itself also matures, the 4th wall jokes are more expertly delivered, but maybe matures isn't the best way to describe this.

Ultimately though, I'm a bit tired of forced high fantasy, so I knew going into this that I was going to enjoy it. I can't force myself to sit through another gibberish universe created by yet another author mistaking complexity for quality, prioritizing the creation of new languages over compelling use of their native tongue.

Dungeon Madness does not suffer from this affliction. The book is more at home having sledgehammered through a lot of occasionally painful world mechanics explication in book 1, leaving more time and focus put on the humour of the series.

Really, this review is slightly unnecessary, as the title suggests, you already know whether or not you're going to enjoy it.

Cheers!

This is pure genius!

the first book was hard for me to get into for some reason the story was engaging but I didn't really get hooked till the 9hr mark the second book however!...hahaha wow! I just love cals sense of humor especially as he keeps messing with dale and the other adventurers that's some funny stuff. I had to pause it while I write this review! Back in I go!

So good!

This book was released just after I finished the first book and now I can't wait for the third one. The world is more centered around the dungeon in this book and the story all as the characters are great.

Cliffhanger ending that will make you long for the next book. It's released already but I guess it takes a while to record an audio version.

Even if you're not a DnD fan you'll love this book!

decent book but the ending will irritate you

most of the book was light-hearted but the ending seemed out of place with its change in tone. I found myself becoming irritated. definitely worth getting.

Couldn't stop listening

Dakota krout hit his stride with this book. I couldn't stop listening to it. If I were reading it on paper I would have had some late nights and a huge lack of sleep. There are twists and turns the entire way through. Vikas Adams again did a stellar narrating of it as well. I'll be looking for more books narrated by him for sure since the next book on this series isn't out yet. Can't wait for the third book in the series!!!!!!

Just keeps getting better and better.

I can't sing this books praise any more. Words fall short of the glory this series brings to life. If you have yet to start this book do so NOW. Then punch yourself for not jumping in sooner.

great and unique story with triple A narrating.

This story was engaging and incredible with memorable and lovable characters. I found myself forgetting that it was narrated because this guy is so good at making different characters with his voice. what a team this author and narrator make. I'll be waiting now for the next in the series.

PS why can't the song of ice and fire series have this narrator?? lol

¡Just as good as the First One!

The first book was awesome, and now this, the best second part you can ask for.

I can't wait to continue the Adventure of Cal.
