Publisher's Summary

Regan Earle was a robotics scientist that inadvertently caused the robot takeover of the world. When his last creation completes a decade-long plan to end his own life, he ends up surprised. Creation offers him a second chance to test his wits and cunning in another world. Fate, however, is fickle and Regan ends up as a Dungeon Core...with all his memories. Is the world of Murgin ready to face such a dungeon? Let's find out....

Earth 2150. Nearly 20 years since the robot uprising, where all AIs designed by inventor Dr. Regan Earle went rogue and started to take over the world. Or at least, that's what everyone thought until a year later Earle himself sent out a message. A message that stated his creations would shut down if he were killed. He even went so far as to place a beacon on top of his building that broadcasted his location. The humans fought against the machines for decades in a futile attempt to destroy the tower. Until one day....

really good

I'm not sure if it's the author or the narrator but at one point he reads 'salt pepper' instead of salt peter

A decent dungeon core book

I found the book very interesting as long as you like dungeon core books.
The only fault I can think of is that the synopsis is a bit misleading. I expected the book to be about a man turned into a dungeon core in the world that was taken over by the machines.

Nice story, good performance, silly mistakes.

This is a good dungeon core book with an interesting premise. The execution is average, definitely worth a purchase and a listen. The biggest problem is the little things. The use of metric by an agricultural society that is "stuck" in a complacent state is a truly lost opportunity: if the dungeon used metric and the natives used imperial units, it would have been really interesting contrast, but to have agrarian people to use metric (also an arbitrary system of measurement, oh, the irony) is just silly.

I look forward to hearing more of this series, but the incongruities are annoying.

Also, he calls saltpeter "salt pepper".

ok so mixed feelings

both the narrators do a good job but I hate that they switch back and forth on chapters I wish they would of just stuck to the voices they were best at. I also feel that the story advancement is going super fast but all in all I will get the next one but please for the next audio release don't swap by chapters

Meh

This book advances at a breakneck pace, skippibg over important details and rushing through things in a sentence that would be better served taking an entire chapter.

The characters are all... off. I've listened for an hour or two, and everything just seems to work out for thr two main characters. Things that need to work go without a hitch without experimentation or coercion... it's mary sueish. The main guy has no problem adjucting to being a dungeon core, the main girl has no problem adapting to weird situations, everybody likes them except people who are clearly evil.

Only an hour into the book and I don't understand anyone's capabilities, but especially the dungeon core's because he just pulls magic symbols from nowhere, then he just makes automotons from magic with no work?

And, oh jooooooy, another stat-based dungeon core book with a fairy companion. Am I the only one tired of these two Dungeon Core conventions? can we not have everything governed by stats, have a dungeon core with a helpful female companion?

EDIT: Yeah, kept listening. The female baroness is definitely a mary sue at the least. the POV switched to a slave, and of course the golden hearted mary sue BARONESS came to personally deliver help to the slaves, awe she's so virtuous. Then the scene ended abruptly as usual.

Then the slaves and their evil, irredeemable masters go intk the dungeon and, of course the genocidal dungeon core who has never had a problem killing decides to save our POV slave for... reasons?

and the slave just... reacts so terribly. She hardly seems bothered for someone impaled to a wall for 15 minutes, and when asked if she wants to live, she thinks to herself "I thought about all the things I hadn't done with my life yet. I wanted to find love" and then the author got lazy and continued "and so much more." And then just moves on. If the author was going tk half-ass it, they just shouldn't have even had her think about it!

and then she's transformed into a robot, and the first perskn description of her transformation is just horrible. She's dying and transforming, but somehow she can tell that her horns have grown centimeters, and she has time to note her hair changing color. But then she senses "some
