Description

Auras empowering the body to superhuman status. Invocations tearing the land asunder. The war has arrived.

The necromantic armies are on the warpath and nowhere is safe—even the sanctuary of the flying dungeon has been threatened. The leadership of nearly all the sentient races has been wiped out, and only the people most suited to repelling the advancing darkness have an intact monarchy.

Cal learns quickly that the primary threat is not the far-off war, but the actions of those entrusted with protecting the population. As it turns out, the idea of using a flying dungeon as a war machine is very tempting indeed.

Dale has been facing his trials better than anyone could have hoped for, but when the war takes a turn for the worse, his role is forcibly relinquished. Since his only chance at survival is painful and rapid advancement, Dale must learn if his strength of will can develop into strength of flesh.

The distance between the Heavens and the Earth might not be so far after all.

It should have ended.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite series. The first three books were excellent. I felt like everything was planned out and the story had well developed plot points with a clear destination. Where the last book ended, it would have been the perfect ending.

I was eagerly awaiting this book and the next but my expectations were too high. This book leaves me with a sense of wanting. The escalation, in all ways of the word, is erratic and nonsensical. The previous books seemed so linear and each breakthrough was exciting. Here things seem out of place.

The dungeon doesnt really have the motivation he did in the previous books. The ending of Dungeon Calamity was the culmination of all his hard work and this book seems to sully that.

Most of my qualms cant be explained other than a feeling of something being wrong.

This book had taken such an extreme jump in conflict. A, S, SS, SSS ranked individuals and possibly above are introduced as the pinnacle of the world yet they are thrown around like candy.

Overall, I am not looking forward to the next book as the main conflict will be an annoying one. My favorite parts of the series were the small accomplishments that steadily piled up, not the blatant way the author tries to use the Shock factor.

TL;DR : Another good book in the series but I feel it is lacking in comparison to the others. The last book had a solid conclusion and this book lacks a good continuing plot. That said, this books still does have many of the lovable factors from the previous books.

Mostly Good

I like this series so naturally i'm going to keep following it. I liked most of this story except around 3/4ths of the way through the story just sort of got confusing for me, and especially the ending. I don't know if I missed something but it just felt like a whole lot of buildup and then a deflating payoff.

Better to stop reading after book 3

I really wanted to like this book, but I can't give this more than one star (even if I almost did just because I liked the other books and got a bit sentimental). This book was painful to get through and it only picked a direction during the second half. Before that, it was all over the place without going anywhere. The story felt like a kid built a sandcastle during the first three books only to smash it during this installment. If you destroy too much of what you built, there's no victory to be had even if the MCs win the battle.

Another problem I have is that I don't really like Dale. His best moments were when he rose up to lead the settlement around the dungeon in previous books, but then he stagnated. He is a person that in order to feel better, likes to smash sentient beings that don't really stand a chance against him unless he makes a mistake. Ever since he murdered someone in cold blood during the first book he hasn't had any character development what so ever. Or if he had some sort of insight, he was quickly reset. I wish the story was centered around Cal, because even though he also lacks empathy, at least he is an interesting monster. I guess the intent of the author is for Dale to be the hero, but you could remove him entirely and end up with a much better book.

Also, Dani has had some likable moments in past books, but now she is only a "whiny wife" caricature. Overall, the story is full of too many caricatures and too few characters.

Imaginative, but lacking

Let me start off by saying I love the series. I'm a huge fan. The system the author put in place to define magic is incredibly imaginative, yet paints a very plausible and graspable image for the listener. It reads like how magic really would be if it was a force in our existence.

The book reads like a video game, and for me that was one of the things that drew me to the book the most. I want so bad for this to be adapted into a video game that plays the system exactly how it's written in the book. the possibilities could be endless.

But this unfortunately is where the authors strength lie; in the imagination of the world and characters, but not so much in the execution.

While the world, the foundations, and the systems are incredibly well developed, the characters are almost entirely underdeveloped. With the exception of a few characters, most of the characters have the same underlying traits and humor that the author does. This unfortunately has many of what should be the most diverse and important characters being read as if they are the same person with a different skin.

Especially in this fourth installment in the series, when everything is at it's climax, and the peril is the most perilous, the author pulls the reader out of their immersion and emotions with ill-timed, corny jokes, often from characters that should be the most serious or brooding. Some of the most ominous and foreboding characters that have been shadowing the book from the beginning have become a joke, and I can't take them seriously anymore.

I don't mean Zenocide. He's exactly how he should be.

Overall I would highly recommend anyone who loves RPGs, RTSs, and Dungeon building games to read this series. You will absolutely love it. Just be prepared for the awkward jokes that turn what should be an emotional ride, into somewhat of an uncomfortable read/listen.

Great but Disapointing

Krout delivers another entertaining entry to this series, but it seems the stress of deadlines shows. I can't say that I fully understand Krout's work load or how Audible handles it's partnerships with authors of long series, but I have seen other series rushed in the past on this platform.
The first 2/3s of this story feel like the typical smooth plot development that I've come to respect about this series. However, the last third of this story (around where the Climax starts) feels rushed and yet slow at the same time. Certain scenes seem to be left out while other less plot-relevant scenes are included at times that don't feel necessary. The development of certain characters and relationships come out of nowhere and it honestly felt like Krout was trying to rush the entire series to a completion, only to leave things on a cliff hangar.
I still love this series and even though I could see many glaring flaws towards the end of this book, they didn't cause the story to become unbearable. If you are a fan of this series then I'm confident you will still like this entry, but I'm fearful that this is a sign of a degrading in quality that I've come to expect of this series and Dakota Krout as an author.

Dungeons and dragons DM guide

Like most of the series has a very good world building, but it lacks in personality in with characters, or follow up to current/past plots. The world building was great for the first and second books but after a while you get attach to characters, and unfortunately they do not grow same personally different scenario. He is a pretty good new author but after a while once you get used to his tricks it becomes very repetitive and tedious to get past certain points because you know whatever the characters do there is a Deus ex Machina right around the corner to solve his problems. OR the writer just says " I am no longer interested in completeing this story line so I am going to remove it". I hate necro and all they represent 3 books of literal plot progression and focus, forth book oh I am not bothered by them anymore. Its a fun read but its just lazy lazy lazy writing.

Series continues fine, but collapses from book 5

The Divine Dungeon Series continues really well where history and Vikas Adam manage to create characters that together form an interesting universe.
Unfortunately, this universe completely coincides with the series from book 5 getting a different narrator. Neither story nor the characters work for me and the entire series universe collapses.
This is why I have given the overall rating such a low grade, because as a reader, one expects the author's commitment and responsibility to the reader, which for this series has failed.

caption?

I don't really know what to say. This series just scratched the right itch for me. Even tough I was first surprised about the cultivation part, it really fit into the World. And what a world this story build. Expanding bit by bit, and making all the Characters feel real. There were no characters that didn't fit in this story. All in all I highly recommend this series, if you are unsure just try out the first book and see if it tickles your fancy.

Dumber and dumber

This entry in the series fails so hard. As the story progresses, the story gets dumber and dumber, until it faceplants with a trope jackpot.
