Publisher's Summary

“I cannot believe that idiotic plan worked.”    

The only thing Gryph wanted when he entered the Realms was to find his missing sister. Then he pissed off a power-hungry god, got stuck in the undead hell dungeon known as the Barrow and nearly had his soul consumed.   

Then things trended upwards, and with the help of a ragtag group of companions, Gryph escaped to a verdant paradise of magic and wonder. But when his exposed secrets lead to betrayal and murder, Gryph is forced to accept an insane quest or his new friends will face the headsman's axe.  

Now, to stop a world-conquering zealot from capturing an ancient weapon of incredible power, Gryph must become the one thing he never wanted to be, a leader. Standing in his way are a group of crazed cultists, an army of deadly magical machines, and friends who no longer trust him.   

And he is still no closer to saving his sister.   

The Lost City, the sequel to the breakout hit Barrow King, is an overflowing cauldron of leveling, world building, humor, and action.

WTH?????

I listen to this book with the anticipation of a very good follow on story to the Barrow King. What The Lost City is in reality is a very poor follow up to the Barrow King.

In the first few chapters of the book you get a glimpse of the what is thought to be the main antagonist of the series. The God King demonstrates his power and that of his pantheon. From this point you would think since Gryph has seen his competition and gotten a full measure of the Herculean task ahead of him to free his sister and his Banner coupled with the fact that Gryph is a former black-ops military man understanding that he will need a huge amount of resources as well as a small army to watch his back that part of his training would kick in immediately. It does not this guy acts like a security guard at Wal-Mart. For all the fore-planning he does and the decisions he makes it is all laughable. Throughout this story the Godhead was a pedestrian Gryph stumbles along the story like a blind and deaf bat. His character development was atrocious I learn more about the overpowered bad guy than I would have like to have known; but in truth throughout the story the bad guy was more interesting than Gryph and his companions. For that matter the Weapons Master and the Stuart was more interesting than Gryph and they were only in the story for 40 audio minutes at most.

Throughout the story the I was frequently frustrated with the obvious character negation of the Nymph. Although he ultimately plays an important part of the story. He was definitely under utilized throughout the story. When a creature tells you that he is over 3000 years old and you are fighting a overpowered dude that has just kick your ass I think you start to use your resources. Instead Gryph and company picks up the Hulks mantra "Hulk Smash" and continually gets a Thanos size beat down.

And when it is all over it fizzles out ultimately Gryph has grown within the world very marginally. Tragedy has struck there is really no appearant movement or progression to the conflict with the God King and his cronies and worst yet a extremely more powerful enemy is re/introduced with an introduced timeline that either tells an experience reader of epic novels that the God King story line will get very rushed and produce horrible reading/listening pleasure or we are headed for a Team-up that smells like every other book out there. As far as the Lit-RPG component of the series let me warn you he left that part of the book in his desk drawer before sending it to the publishers....

I was very disappointed in the The Lost City story. It had so much more potential considering the stellar story line and concept present in the Barrow King.

Good second book but the first was better

It feels a little forced and the fact that the main character is always winning by the luckiest margins is a little perdictable.

bad narrator, good story

It's hard to know sometimes if it's the story or just the way Armen reads it that makes it unpalatable, but as I've disliked Armens style before, I'll go with that as being the culprit. If he would stop reading everything like he is telling ghost stories around a campfire with a flashlight shining up on his face and waggling his fingers in a spooky manner, there would definitely be more to enjoy.

This Book has no creativity

This was a horrible book. The book is very repetitive with cliffhanger after cliffhanger and is so easy to predict you can skip to the end and the rest of the book is unnecessary.

To the author stop writing anything about the military or military family's
