Publisher's Summary

Humanity on the run. Desperate base building. Dark deeds done during daylight.

Joe has started to draw attention to himself and his abilities. While some of the attention is good and allows for personal growth, most of it is from various organizations that feel threatened by the sudden upswing of power that Joe's guild - The Wanderers - is attaining.

As the threat to Earth begins to reach its peak, all of humanity has a choice: flee to Eternium, or stay for an uncertain future. Some stay, some go, some don't make the choice quickly enough. In Ardania, the human Kingdom is seeing an unprecedented influx of people. Supply and demand is an issue no matter where you go, as a civilization of a few million can't prepare to accept an eighth of Earth's inhabitants at once.

Joe sets out to solve problems where he can, but he can't be there for everyone...especially when a group of smiling enforcers are working to bring him down.

Lots of new, little bad

I personally like the new narator alot. Some of the ways characters have been reimagined are great becuase of it, and there are no voices that grate on your ears. after a few chapters you just stop noticing a diffrence.

The begining is still abit stiff, but by the end youll end up enjoying you self for most of the time. it is worth mentioning that there are things that turn out to be less than appropriate, and alot more gross.

Buy with caution if you find your taste in potty homur less than palatable.

Literary Crack!

I finished this book in less than a day. Cannot wait for the next one.

Also, don’t worry about the narrator change. The change in character voices is explained in the story and you get used to it very quickly.

It's like he didn't even listen to the other books

I like Luke Daniels as a narrator, but the differences between him and Vikas Adams are like the differences between bread and butter. Spoiler: Magical Synesthesia makes women sound like men, and men sound like they're all from the deep South or from France. Even after listening to the first two books, I couldn't follow this one without constantly going back 30-45 seconds each time someone spoke. As much as I relate to Dakota's books, I will not longer engage in any series where the narrator is changed. The names are pronounced differently, the pace of the book is different, and ultimately the entire series is dashed for me.

More of an episode than a book.

First off, the transition from Vikas Adam to Luke Daniels came off much better than it did with Krout’s other series. It has been about the same amount of time for me between the last Adam and the new Daniels books in both series. I was definitely put off by the change in the Dungeon series, while in this one I actually like the Daniels version a whole lot more.

That aside, this book was entertaining but scatter-shot in its pace and plotting. The ending just sort of happened, and there wasn’t anything that resembled a unifying element that I could point to.

So in the end, it was worth the credit, but not anything particularly special.

Sadly the same problem as eternium persists

Let me start off by saying Luke Danials is a fine narrator but the difference between him and Vikas Adam is definitely jarring as someone who listened to the earlier books certain voices associated with the characters are markedly different which detracts from the enjoyment. The story itself is excellent with Dakota Krouts other work but in this case reading the book is more enjoyable.

Narration:(

you really have to be careful about switching up a narrator mid series. It's so jarring. Especially this guy, who seems to have a completely different take on all the characters. Sigh, it's really threatening immersion for me.

Luke Daniels growing on me

I would still like Vikas to narrate these books. Luke Daniels did the characters justice and I’m happy with the result, he still sucks at female voices though😜

Hate changing narrators

It’s so difficult to enjoy a book when the narrator is changed from prior books in the series

The narration threw me off

The story was pretty great man but i think it was a really bad move to switch narrators. Luke Daniels wasn’t bad but Vikas Adam did such an amazing job voicing the previous characters that these new voices felt foreign to me.

Excellent Book and Narration

Yes the narrator is different but personally I found it fairly seemless with this series. With the Divine Dungeon series it was much more jarring (although I got used to it and it was great), with this book all of the characters fit perfectly and I've been thoroughly enjoying it. The story itself I'm about halfway through and it's been amazing. On par with the previous books.

Changing Narrators half way through the series?!

The new Narrator's accents are worse than Joey from FRIENDS. Hard to listen to.

Great story, narration better than Eternium

I loved Lukes reading of Rexxus but very much disliked his reading of Eternium, to the point I couldn't even follow the story. For Raze his reading works out ok, it's different but I was still able to enjoy the story - unlike Eternium. There may be an important difference worth noting though: I didn't listen to book 2 right before this and it was ok, while I did relisten to book 4 of the dungeon series before book 5 and it was jarring. Perhaps hold off if you just listened to book 2, let the voices fade before you listen with the new narrator.

As for the story, it's as addictive as the others and I can't wait for more!
