Pointless

The story is pointless in this one. Honestly I struggled to get through this one. The narrator was the only thing that saves this book.

Best series in the world!

Love it to death. Read every book and am now listening through the series again on audible. The most real, believable, imaginative, and legitimately funny litrpg out there. Thanks for the story

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Too technical

To much time all clumped together with the enchanted prompts took away from the story too much without any storyline to keep entertained

The Land: Swarm

I loved the book, even if I didn’t quite understand where the title Swarm came from exactly.

Great story and a great overall experience.

Podehl has a great performance as well.

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.
