Particularly Fun That Hefun that he he had to deal with lot
of politics nd economics s well s just the physical threats that came his way Apolitics nd economics s well A Knife in the Heart as just the physical threats that came his way A negative is the fact that while Calnd Dale re OK characters they re not uite likeable enough for the roles they re cast in by Dakota Krout They both do things that show they lack bit of empathy nd have uestionable morals yet it is clear the uthor still expects the reader to be rooting for both characters I was rooting for them but only just nd that was slight issue My feeling is that it is only A Bollywood Affair a matter of time before one or both of them will do something that makes it impossible for me to root for them I think the biggest issue this LitRPG had is the fact that it was fairly run of the mill dungeon core LitRPG I ve read bunch of books just like it in the last few years nd uite few of them have had faster paced stories humour nd better lead characters I m on the fence The Scent of Rosa's Oil about picking up the second book in the series Normally I d pick up the second book in solid 3 star series but the thing bothering me bout this one is the fact that I just read that the series changes udio narrator for the final book That is the Nobodys Angel (Willow Park, absolute WORST The reviewsre wful nd since I m lready not fan of the new guy Luke Daniels I cannot imagine his being nything other than complete opposite of this series current Defending Hearts audio narrator in terms of voicesnd tone so that has managed to kill my enthusiasm bit for pressing on with the series if I ve got that to suffer in future instalments Audio Note Vikas Adam did decent job with the udio Rating 3 stars Almost GoodThe plot is reasonably interesting but the world nd characters re rather prosaic The dialogue nd personality of the two main characters Cal nd Dani re fairly weak Side characters cough Dale cough feel like one dimensional cardboard cutouts I wanted to like it but it was just okay Not Feel the Heat (Phoenix Agency, a page turnerThe seuel does have significantly improved dialoguend real personalities to the characters if you can make it through this book This book felt like it needed nother draft Suares Debut Novel Indie Author Audiobook Non human POVI m burning through Indie Authors recently Sudden Fury (The Last Gunfighter, and I m enjoying myself so muchThis book is going to be prettyudience specific Spiky after reading Andrew Rowe s Sufficiently Advanced Magicnd enjoying my first LitRPG I decided I d check out some If you enjoyed his book you will probably enjoy this book but be ware this leans way towards RPG than mixed with epic fantasy like Rowe s bookSo ya know when you re doing dungeon raids in video games This book explores just how. A powerful dungeon A sheep herder turned Noble Their path to scendance through cultivation Conuering dungeons nd using them to grow has long been the most efficient way to become powerful Dungeon of Death adventurer The only thing keeping the process from being easy is the Beasts that inhabit these places uestions plague those entering this. These dungeons come into being why they spawn loot why they have ranked monsters how the bossesre built nd level upmagic rankingsThis book is sentient dungeon POVI can t say I ve ever read Love Rockets anything like that beforend it was ton of funA human has been sucked into soul gem A Deceptive Homecoming (Hattie Davish Mystery, and starts spawning dungeon He s befriended by dungeon wisp nd together they start building nd leveling up the dungeon with the goal of killing s many dventurers s possible I ve never read book where I laughed so much t deaths of dventureers it was very uniue POVThere The Hired Man are two main characters the sentient dungeon who I m not countings human because lthough he started that way he remembers nothing of being human nd is now something else entirely he s definitely not person Almost A Gentleman any His name is Calnd his dungeon wisp is named Danny I think the spelling is right I udiobookedThen there s the human dventurer POV Dale nd he s joined by group who s working to level him up s well So you go back nd forth between the dventurer trying to level up his magic nd gain rmor nd other loot Here by the Bloods and the dungeon who s determined to kill himThis book was pretty funny the dungeon can hear what thedventurers re saying nd one time someone was commening how they need new boots so Cal spawns three left boots nd finds that hilariousThis book will have lot of ppeal to people who play lot of video games nd enjoy books with ton of magic explanation dialogue The beginning of the book is pretty dense with info drops bout how magic works nd how you level up so if that part of Rowe s book bogged you down this book is Bound (Torn Trilogy, a stepbove that nd you will probably want to passThere re elves dwarves politics of how the dungeon loot should be distrubuted nd tons of magical monstersThe book isn t that long round 300 or so pages nd the pacing was really tight lots of dungeon raids nd Loyalty and Lies actionnd it s ctually mixed with decent Fortunes Flames amount of politics between the elvesnd humansThe dialogue was well done def not wooden it flowed nd was engagingThere s not terrible mount of world building you hear bit bout different tribes of elves nd dwarves humans of different countries but the whole book stays in the same setting on the same mountain nd dungeonI gave it 4 on good reads it s definitely not master piece book but it s really enjoyable for someone who really loves video games the way that Cal forms himself into traps dead ends tricks nd drops loot just made me laugh the whole way through the book The characters ren t flat but they ren t super complex Claiming Her and in depth the way you d expect fromn epic fantasy they re mostly fun nd engagingI found this book by searching for other books that Vikas Adam had narrated I enjoyed him so much in the Heartstriker series that I was craving of his fabulous voice cting I was not disappointed he was great with this series s wellIt s cheap It s free for kindle unlimitedprime members nd it s 399 for people who don t have the membership Worth try if you think this sounds interestingSuper udience specific but really fun for those
