Publisher's Summary

What's that you say? You want more village growth? Well be careful where you stand, because the Mist Village just took a Viagra-Cialis sandwich and there is a stiff breeze blowing! (I can make some more references if you're still not getting the point...did you see what I did there?)

Another Page-turner (can we call an audiobook that)

Seriously can’t believe how much I’m spending on this series but wow am I enjoying it. Hilarious character development, great use of descriptive pros, especially believable magic... and the narration puts it over the top. 6/5 stars for me Just bought 3 more credits as I can’t wait to finish this series. PS can’t believe the author ended this book mid battle!?! #Audible1

Well all right

I cannot say I am unhappy with it. It's a fantastic story there are however some different paths I sometimes beleive would have been better. But it is a compelling and gripping story. I find myself always drawn back.

Frat boy in a Fantasy world

I want to love this series, a lot of cool stuff happens and some of the characters are genuinely likable, but the main character is a bit of a douche. I stopped here to take a break from the series, the MC's inner monologue make me cringe all the time and although he has gotten pretty strong throughout the books .. this guy remains the same d-bag we've been given in book 1, he hasn't developed as a person at all. Most characters he interacts with feel like they are just a means to an end, with no real substance, and it's the same with his leadership and advancements. He doesn't really learn, just kind of goes with the flow and let's other people do everything, while obtaining overly valuable resources. Check out Dakota Krout, he's a perfect example of excellent character development, both his series have me looking back in wonder how each major character changed throughout their journeys .. but that just isn't here.

Continued growth for Richter and Mist Village!

We are introduced to Stridex the Exile; a before unknown group of powerful creatures who will undoubtedly come into play at some future point. Richter, Randolphus (Randy) his Chamberlain, Scion his other-brother-from-another-mother, Fueton the floating misty ball, and of course Alma his familiar all continue to contribute to the growth of Misty Village. Richter continues to grow as well; his spells and abilities increase in level and power, as well as Richter’s physical self. Richter and Elma getting drunk at the village celebration were quite funny. The self-examination after the bear kill was interesting as well as the first group Richter formed as War Leader. Heaven’s Forge and the Dragon’s Philosopher Cauldron were also amazing. So much going on; it’s a great adventure!

Best series I've read all year!

My son introduced me to this book and I picked up the audiobook for a long work commute. The narrator is probably the best I've ever heard. The book itself is a combination of Piers anthony punny humor, world building, and a dude encountering a plethora of "oh crap" situations. I've read the series twice and don't plan on stopping. Well worth the time/cost.

An unfortunate turn in the series

The first three books, leading into this book, have steadily become more juvenile and crass. What began with a sense of allusion simply became a cheap explicit potty mouth book. It is like a comedian that relies on shock rather than cleverness. What makes this an unfortunate turn is that the series is good/entertaining now feels like I'm hanging out with a teenager who is trying swear words for the first time and is proud of the new accomplishment. I'm not sure the benefit of the crass immaturity does to sales, but the demographic has narrowed to exclude me.

I'm easy to satisfy but this book let me down.

I'll start this off positive. I love the LitRPG genre! I have a blast listening or reading the books. Now for my opinion about this book. This is the second book I've not finished in my 50 years. I really struggled to keep going. The story lacks intrigued, conflict, everything comes to easy for the main character. Every detail of the daily routine is the story. I can't recommend this book.

Catacombs?

What the hell just happened? This book felt like it was all of a sudden written by a frat boy with non stop horrible dick jokes. And the title doesn’t make any sense. They don’t even go into the Catacombs. This entire series just took a horrible turn. I thought the first three books were enjoyable and was looking forward to the rest. But wow was this book bad. Beyond the title the author just keeps inventing new story lines. None of the ongoing lines get addressed at all. The author has made a big world and his writing has gotten lost. His writing also turned very juvenile. Maybe if there is some sort of sale I’ll pick up the next book, but I don’t have high hopes for it after listing to this one.

The Land: Catacombs

Great book. Story: Excellent continuation of an exciting and enjoyable saga. Performance: I have come to throughly enjoy Phodehl’s reading. Especially his inflection on the MCs overlord id persona and very Earth modern style. Overall Appeal: No complaints. Very good, even great, which can be hard to hold onto throughout a long saga. Final Thoughts: You and I have unfinished business!

It's Aleron Kong & Nick Podehl narrating...

What made the experience of listening to The Land: Catacombs the most enjoyable?

I love the way Aleron Kong writes... so the stories themselves would be good enough for me... but when you throw in Nick Podehl's narration? It's just this combination that makes you feel like you cant get enough...

What other book might you compare The Land: Catacombs to and why?

I'm new to LITRPG's and The Land is really the first one I've gotten into...

Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favorite?

Probably the main character Richter... since he has to be such a strange read sometimes... he goes from talking all medieval to talking about goofy 2010 nerd culture stuff. So much fun.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The series has definitely been built up for me... there's such a high level of excitement inside me as I listen just because I know how good it's going to be because I've been so pleased with the previous 3 books. The majority of the book makes me laugh.... it hasnt made me cry yet.

Any additional comments?
