Description

In a distant world five times the size of planet Earth, dungeons and their dungeon cores have become the top of the food chain.  

Millions of dungeons inhabit the planet, utilizing the various human kingdoms as a source of much-needed mana to facilitate their own growth; in turn, the humans delve into the dungeons and acquire their own power in the form of essence, which allows them to develop and enhance themselves in a multitude of different ways.  

It is a symbiotic relationship that has lasted centuries and has brought about a measure of peace.  

Far in the Northern wilds where no humans (and therefore - no dungeons) regularly frequent, a young man is left alone when his parents are murdered suddenly and unexpectedly.  

Now, without friends, family, or even supplies, he embarks on a journey to find out who targeted his parents - and upon whom he needs to enact his revenge.  

Along the way, he discovers something about himself that his parents said was impossible from the moment he was born.  

Will he learn to control the new powers he has gained, or will his newly awakened dungeon core abilities consume him?  

Contains LitRPG elements such as statistics and leveling. No harems and no profanity.

twist on a core

First like everyone has stated it is a twist to dungeon core books.. A fantastic twist in my books. Very unique in its "stats" and skills. Reading this had me asking at the end of every chapter what could happen next.

The characters in this book felt real like they had purpose even the bard maid or a street runner not random nameless npcs.

Unfortunately the only problems I had were some time skips I wish didnt happen just for my own greed of knowledge and wanting a 20 hr+ fantastic read... The 1st book is definitely a sey up to the series i will be waiting for anxiously daily.

Too short

A fair addition to litrpg libraries and an interesting take on dungeon core stories. My only real complaint is that it feels like the end of the book should be more of a middle. Too often it seems that authors are now splitting what would be a decent length book into several installments... it's too bad.

Disappointing

The premise is interesting, and the author has done some interesting world building to expand on the dungeon core premise. Unfortunately, that seems to be where the work stopped. Everything else RPG-related seems just crufted on. There's very little depth to anything that isn't dungeon core related, and that includes the characters. I kept wondering if this was meant to be teen-lit litrpg, but then the story ends before it really even starts. As for dialog, it is really stilted. I can't believe this was the author's twelvth book; it feels like a first book in strong need of a good editor.

Then there's the gaps in time. There's a three month fast-forward towards the end which really feels like "insert book two here". That's after there's already been a gap halfway through the book which is variously described as 12, 15, 18, or 24 months long, followed soon after by another 1 month gap. Basically, any time the character might do anything solo, it just gets skipped.

The stats also get quite annoying. They should come when actually needed, not as often as they do here. As example, on the single dungeon dive that occurs, stats are given beforehand, after each and every *room* of the dungeon, then again afterwards. Take the nine hours runtime and figure this in; I'd guess that at least an hour is simply the stats being read over and over again.

This *could* turn into a good book, but it's all premise, no story. It sets up a quest for the main character, but never advances along that quest. He is given so many unbalancing skills that he's the ultimate cheat character right from his first day dungeoneering. The world could be interesting, but the story set in that world is so barebones, I have no investment in it.

Excellent idea with lots of potential

Dungeon world combines the world of adventurers and dungeons in a way that I didn't think would work until I listened to it. I really enjoyed the how innocent the main character seemed while getting up all sorts of shenanigans. This book was more of a set up book than I usually like, but having read further into the series, it is worth it.

The fantasy genre I didn't know I needed!

I love all manner of fantasy novels and rpg/mmo games but I didn't know about the Dungeon Core genre. Little did I know how perfect this genre is for me.

This was a fun listen and great intro in the genre. I impatiently await the next book in this series!

summary sucks

the summary really does not explain this book is or what it's supposed to be when I read the summary I was not going to get this book but I said screw it I need a new book and I can always return it if it's not good but this book is actually really good surprisingly I wish she explained a little more and how he was made and more about his parents but maybe in the second book will find out more

Fred's Recombinant Core is Funner Than Common Core

First, props to Jonathan Brooks for creating an ingenious take on dungeon delving along with writing a captivating story to go along with it. Also, Miles Meili narrating performance is very enthusiastic and lively.

The only downside is the stats sections that all litRPG novels include which tend to interrupt the flow of the story telling. Actually, in the written form, the stats sections wouldn't be too bad since a reader has the ability to either spend the time to delve into them to gain a deeper understanding of the various attributes or quickly skip over them. With audiobooks, this is much more frustrating since the narrator simply spews them out in a fluid manner that makes it difficult for a listener to gain much understanding of them all and skipping forward is a tedious series of fast-forwards/fast-reverses until they eventually reach the end without missing the story continuation. It is for this reason that, while I enjoy the newer genre, I'm often hesitant in choosing it as an audio format. Note: Jonathan Brooks is the first author I'm aware of who understood this problem and found a great way to solve the problem in book 2. More on that in Book 2's review.

The character development for the Fred is understandably fairly extensive considering that he's the MC and Eisa's, while not as extensive a backstory, is sufficient to make her an interesting tier 2 character. The rest of the characters are adequately defined to provide a clear understanding of their roles. World building is not overly done and the many dungeons and their cores are well described.

I enjoyed the story and it was a pleasurable listening experience.

Interesting original concept

A fun original idea for a litrpg. Not much suspense but a lot of action and a fun story. Narration was good as well.

Interesting concept

I really liked the concept of this book. Even though I feel like it is going to follow the standard tropes (character with uber broken ability becomes uber powerful), I am interested to see where it goes. I am going to grab the second book to see.

great book

interesting concept with the human/core Fred. The book was a tad rushed in a few places, but it didn't hurt the story, I just would have liked some more details. overall I highly recomend it.

gute Ansätze

aber nicht so gute Ausführung. Eine Welt wo Dungeon Cores und Menschen nebeneinander existieren und jeder seinen eigenen Zielen nachgeht. Und darunter ein Core der als Mensch herumwandelt und beide Seiten kennen lernt - mit allen Vorteilen (und kaum Nachteilen).
das ist die Einführung in die Geschichte - sowohl in die Welt als auch ins Regelsystem.
Aber man könnte beim Einfühlungsvermögen und der Immersion des Autors/Romans noch nachbessern.
