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?)

I like these books a lot...

Started at book one and listened all the way to this one back to back. I enjoyed all the books, I wish this book advanced some of the plot lines that were set up in the early books and not yet resolved. I was a bit sad to reach the end and find the new plot line for this book was also not resolved. Hopefully the next book is almost finished! I need to know what happens! haha

Good writing and narration, frustrating misogony

What’s funny is I’m writing these in backwards order

So I have been checking reviews in backwards order, I listened to the whole series, some books better then others but the dr never disappoints.
Nick brings the story to life, and the references in the book make the fantasy more real. I can’t wait.

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!?!

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.

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.

Stop with the terrible jokes and references

Self proclaimed "Father of American LitRPG" cannot write a story to save his life. The jokes and pop culture references makes me cringe as every turn. I can space out for 2 hours and still be in the same spot after he talks about his one night stands and how his mother raised him. The only thing keeping this together is the Narrarator who is amazing.

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.

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!

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.

The books continue to degenerate.

In what was acceptable in the first book or two the constant reading of statistics and items that has grown to fill a more and more significant portion of the stories. Beyond that, there are other aspects of the book that are getting to be just downright annoying. every female ex-girlfriend, wife, random passerby is regularly referred to as "fun sacks", or implied to be nothing more than a set of holes waiting to be stuffed. The constant references to ex-girlfriends, wives, etc and the huge phallus of every character in the story makes the books feel more and more like a Fratboy diary than a story. The icing on the cake was the author clearly trying to be inclusive by having lesbians in his story , then referring to them as a nice way to get a three-way.

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.

Poor writing that seems desperate for readers

I really enjoyed the first few books in this series, however it has finally gotten to the point that I can't go forward. It seems the author has decided that rather than writing a good story, he should resort to vulgarities and sex. I'd estimate about 50% of the book focuses on the main character's thoughts about his own genitalia or that of others, rather than on just building an interesting series of events. There is a lot of good material here and it could be very entertaining; however it is largely lost by what I can only assume are the author's own sexual frustrations.

Nick Podehl, as always, does a fantastic job; but as the cliche goes, you can't polish a turd.
