the worst of the chaos seeds series

I hated writing this review, the last 4 books were a solid 5 stars. This book lacked basic plot, point, or even a climax. it ends as awkwardly as it started and could be been cut front he entire series and not made a difference. I recommend skipping this one.

Only one negative thing.

I love the book and narration - however I feel like it should be edited for audio to cut out some of the repetition in item and monster descriptions.

Excellent Read

An easy listen, following the storyline and enough action to keep you interested. In other words, I brought the next book in rhe series.

More, give me more!!!!!

I can't get enough of this series. I have listened to it twice now and my only regret is that I didn't write a review earlier. If you love fantasy and you are tired of the same old "ancient evil risen" story line and want something new, then for sure go for this.

Nick Podehl is amazing, best narrator ever!!

Excellent

This was another good book in the series. The story is interesting and unique and the narrator of the story was very good at getting the emotions of the characters across to the reader.

Great addition to the series

So I am on my second go through and their is so much more to the story that I missed on my first go through.

I have read all 7 of the books and listened to them (Mostly twice now). I know some people complain about the prompts but I love that type of info. It makes the book feel more real.


For anyone considering this series: The Mc acts like a real person. He will do good and bad things. Some things people consider cruel (My brother and I got in to a discussion about that). Here is the thing I can’t say I’d do any less in his position. I mean honestly he is. A much nicer person than I would be in that situation.

Con: here is the only reason it did not make 5 stars. While I love prompts the description of the goblins was a bit tedious when it kept repeating racial facts. That would be my only real suggestion to skip over.

Gnomes Rule

Another beautifully told story of adventure and leveling up in the land. My only issues were that some of the prompts and level building can seem tedious. There were a couple of lengthy in depth descriptions that I zoned out during. Overall the level of complexity that Aleron is constructing with each story is phenomenal.

The saga continues with gusto!

Richter, Randolphus, Scion, Fueton, and of course Alma continue to contribute to the growth of Misty Village. The Pixies and Sprites have sworn fealty to Richter thus increasing Richter’s power, affinity, and military strength to some degree. Richter has been lovingly described as the sword carrying, magic wielding, master of a place of power. I have also named him King of Idioms. Richter is constantly busy grinding his limitless attributes, skills, and spells. His latest favorites are smithing, enchanting, patrolling, building, and scribing. The saga continues with gusto!

Straight up awesome

Okay so a few days ago I downloaded book 1 of this series. I have been unable to write a review because I could not stop listening to this series. At the end of this book binge (#bookbinge), all I could think was good lord when does the next one come out. This is a magnificent series that really plunks my loot string.

fantastic book and superbly narrated

I could not wait to get back into my car and drive so that I could listen to the book. if you like a good romp, and you enjoy an excellent storyline then this book is for you. the bonus, is how the story swallows you into an immersive experience that surpasses any RPG game.
