Description

Ryker only has one goal in his life right now: Turn a certain adventuring guild into a flaming wreck while dancing merrily through the smoldering ruins. All for the chance to get back at a handful of people.  

It isn’t as if they didn’t deserve it either.  

They had driven him from his home. Chased him physically from the very guild house itself. All the way to the gates of the city.  

Simply because he wasn’t as strong as they expected him to be.  

As strong as he’d expected himself to be.  

He’d returned to the city the next day and left with his means for revenge. Something he’d hidden away and told no one about when he found it in one of his few Dungeon Dives.  

An inactive Dungeon Core.  

A crystal the size of a fist with a soul inside. One that could create anything from mana it wanted to. From monsters and complex cave systems to gold coins.  

Years spent in planning, and unfortunately farming, as he waited. Now it felt like his moment was finally here. 

The Dungeon Core had been acting strange lately. As if it were finally… coming to life.  

Watching over the crystal like a hawk for this very event, Ryker impatiently waits. Any day now, it'd start.  

And he could set about taking his vengeance.  

Starting with ripping the soul of the dungeon out.  

Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/partial harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, forced political marriage (and consummation), and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

Its good for what it is

So the voice actress, amazing. i might just get books to hear her performance again. However the book was not to my liking. its not a bad book, but it is a harem story. the main character just gets a bevy of beautiful girls, and its feels forced. personally was not expecting that kind of story. the dungeon stuff and story feel added on to give a justification for the romance. i like the atmosphere though, i want to know more about the world, just less so with a harem. the main character is not likeable, but that's by design, to have a growth into someone who's not an ass hat.
i suggest getting this if you like dungeon books, and like harem stories.

Dungeoneering 101, how to become a dungeon for fun

I really enjoy dungeon books. Never thought that I would, but they are an amazing concept and I really admire the versitility of the writing that allows so many variations of what it means to be a dungeon. For example, Dakot Krout's Divine Dungeon is a literal core that builds a structure around itself. Hugo Huesca's Dungeon Lord is about a man who is tied to his dungeon, and can only build up in one area. Arand has created a character who literally steals a dungeon core for himself and is able to create and add to his dungeon on a whim.

This concept sets him alone, as it is fun and different to see a man who basically is supertalanted, but lacks the capability to adventure use his wits to become a success and get revenge as a dungeon. One pump, as he is affectionately know by his peers, is a highly skilled mage, but only has the stamina to cast up to about three spells before he is exhausted to the point of invalidity. He schemes to get his revenge on those who have mistreated him, and steal a dungeon core, setting about laying in plans to get his revenge. There is some typical stuff, like the dungeon wisp/fairy, and the act of a town building up around the dungeon, but this is a really fresh concept that plays out well. Plus, Ryker is a likable fellow, even though he is a little petty when it comes to getting his revenge.

Andrea Parsneau does an amazing job narrating. She really nails the majority of the characters, but I will say that her version of Ryker makes him sound snively. He sounds like someone who is perpetually disappointed, and as much as he isn't perfect I think he could have been a little bit manlier. In fact, I wanted him to be a touch less whiney sounding. Win was great as the fairy, and the two royal cousins clicked, wife and mother-in-law Duchess were awesome in their portrayal, but even his arch nemesis sounded more manly. I wish they had traded voices. Still, that is my conceit, and I am not docking a star, simply because she did a great job; she just didn't match my vision of Ryker's voice. Parsneau is a true professional, and she handles this tale with panache. I really can't imagine anyone else reading it.

The cover is fantastic, and you get to see Ryker plotting and scheming. Mino and Win are in there as well, but I must laugh, because the audible version cuts off the cityscape at his lap and leaves him with a glowing palm, and a rather phallic looking tower leaping from his lap. I think a little too much trimming took place, and made it look a tad embarrassing. Still, no points added or subtracted for the cover. It draws the reader in, and that is all that matters.

Arand never lets a reader or listener down. His stories always manage to grab your attention, and then hold it until he finishes. The bad thing is, no matter how long the book is it never lasts long long enough. You just never want the story to end. His characters are captivating, and the betrayals really cut deeply. You will root for the Church of Light to light a stick of dynamite, and for the proper queen to remain in place. Too bad we don't always get what we want. This, like all of Arand's other works, contains a proper harem, a bevy of beauties that Ryker claims as his own. So be prepared for that. Also, be prepared to anticipate the next book in this series, because once you read book one you will be hooked. Thankfully, Arand writes trilogies, and so there is a conclusion to look forward too!

Look, I really enjoyed this book lot. Arand is an amazeballs writer, and the pure Parsneau narration is a fantastic. There is simply no way you will be disappointed if you get this book. Read it now, and become an Arand fan for life, I suppose you'll become a Parsneau fan as well. Jump in the water while the water is cool and fun. Why waste time reading or listening to other booring books when you can win with this one? Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

Liked his book 'Super Sales...', but this sucked

I thought his 'Super Sales on Super Heroes' books were fun, even if they did devolve into puerile harem wish fantasy in places. But this book took a similar premise only without the fun, interest and excitement. On top of that, the narrator adopted a very annoying voice for the main character and narrator. I recommend giving this one a pass, but definitely suggest those other works.

Blood, Vengeance, and city building

If your a fan of litrpg series like "The land" and/or are also a fan of the dungeon born, dungeon town, etc. Then I would suggest you add this one to your library. With the main character bent on getting his vengeance for the one that had wronged him to his fairy companion with her own devilish plan is entertaining and runs smoothly with the wider story. So if your slightly inserted then pick up this book you won't be disappointed.
p.s. There's a bit of a harem situation in the book so it gets a little steamy at parts so a headset might be useful. Probably a 4/10 steamy-ness you have been warned.

Guilty Pleasure

This was a fun book with an interesting premise, however, the author's treatment of rape is bizarre.

Forcing yourself on another person physically is not all that different than requiring someone you've forcibly enslaved to sleep with you in order to improve their position within the hierarchy you've set up. There is no explanation that makes what the MC does any different than the other rapist whose acts of sexual assault disgust the MC.

When a sexually frustrated teenager writes

This had promise as a premise, but the author has a wet dream they want to communicate through this story. Sex, sexual violence, bully vengeance, and thoughtless use of vulgarity for the purest reason of personal release by the main character, mimicked almost perfectly but all characters made this an eye rolling delight. I finished the book only because I don't like to quit once I've started something.

The narrator gets my utmost respect for portraying these one dimensional characters in a way that actually gave them an upgrade to two dimensions. I look forward to hearing her work in future. Her efforts made this tragedy of a book bearable.

While this story was awful in just about every way, there was and is such potential that I hope someone else will do better in future.

This is a pass

It's not the worst LITRPG I've read but close to it. The main character has a ridiculous anger issue and over reacts to things in an over the top off putting way. No one like to read about an irredeemable jerk. The political maneuvering is unbelievable in how simple and direct it is. Yes the main character is a "simple wizard and farmer that doesn't like polotics" but come on this is just bad writing here. You don't know politics yourself and don't want to consult with someone so just have everyone react to your main character and losten up around him. I would have to say this was written by a 14 year old horny gamer who watches too much harem anime. His super sales on super heroes is a better pick though this one is a pass. I'm glad I read that series first or I wouldn't give anything else by this guy a chance.

HORRIBLE NARRATOR

If you have a Male protagonist, why would you choose a narrator who makes this character sound like a weak, childish, high pitcht, thin voiced, transgender brat. HORRIBLE. I listened to over 60 books on audible, many of them in this genre but NEVER annoyed me the voice actor so much, that I couldn't bear, continuing the audio book. "Great job"

etwas langweilig

Der Ansatz der Story ist interessant und hat einiges Potenzial - das leider größtenteils nicht genutzt wurde.
Die Story ist schon ok, aber eben nicht mehr. Ich hatte vor allem gegen Ende nicht wirklich Lust weiterzuhören.
Der Sprecher ist gut, aber die gewählte Stimme der Hauptperson ist zwar passend, doch etwas nervig.
