    Description

    When Erik and Rugrat entered the ten realms they didn’t know what was going on. They only knew that they had contracted the two week curse.

    When entering the second realm they came to understand their character sheets, and part of the system that is called the ten realms. A place that the strong make the rules and the weak cling to them for protection and hope that they might be left in peace.

    They passed through the trials of the Beast Mountain Dungeon, taking control of it and becoming the leader of nearly 200 people.

    Now in command of the Alva Dungeon and looking to forge a new future, they need more power, mana stones, dungeon cores, monster cores, if not then the Dungeon will stop functioning and they will need to relocate once again.

    As they ascend to the second realm, Erik and Rugrat need to grow their skills, gain information, and find a dungeon. It’s hardly ever that easy.

    A thoughtful series

    These novels are not a simple telling of an entertaining series of events. they are a look into the lives and substance of another world. This world has been created in the imagination of a very promising storyteller and brought to life by an excellent dedicated performer. The overall tone is lighthearted and satisfying for those in the mood to hear their good guys to win and bad guys get schooled.

    Better than book 1

    The Ten Realms series is shaping up nicely. I an hooked. But as an audible reader I’m also stuck. Hopefully we’ll have another audiobook soon.

    New favorite

    Now just need to hurry up on book 3&4. The length is awesome, I hate shorter stories. I appreciate the thought put into all the explanations of the crafting processes, homework was done there. Also, tank monk.. enough said

    Better and worse.

    So. Michael Chatfield. We meet again. I have taken a hiatus since reading your last book so I could get a fresh start. If anyone wants to see my review on the previous book you can go to my listener page. I will come out and say though that I liked the first book better.

    *May contain minor spoilers. Contains Spoilers for book 1.

    Things better done in the previous book were the miraculous healing and brotherly love. The second realm has healing but it moves on to other things like alchemy, blacksmithing and building up skills. I would say about a third of the book is set aside for crafting. This is great and most of the information is highly researched and detailed.

    In book 1, I loved the intense feelings I got, the peril of losing his limbs, struggling to get them back, the brother's love and camaraderie. I loved the joy of the villagers being healed of life long injuries. There was much more peril in the first book compared to this one.

    In this book, both brothers outmatch almost everyone in the second realm as soon as they arrive so there is no danger what so ever. You made a good choice with Alva dungeon near the end of the book by the way. It should present a future challenge. *Wink wink*.

    The Biggest Qualm I have about this book is Alva... The villagers. Seriously. It was absolutely ridiculous with the timeframe in the previous book so I guess this book is more believable in comparison but still. How can a rowdy group of peasants who got a week of training take down hoards of beasts, and now they are like military commando's out of nowhere. The timespan increases so they have time to train but you don't really mention that. They just sort of poof! know how to ambush, slaughter, maneuver, scheme, plot, conduct military operations and make political power moves. You provide little to no backstory into how they do this other than what we already know from the previous book. They could be done a lot better.

    The book was rather mundane to me, felt like set up and am afraid you are falling back into old habits from Emerilia, trying to stretch things out instead of get down to the nitty gritty. Why make a dozen decent books when you can make a few amazing books. OR why make a dozen decent books and make 3 dozen amazing books. Take the time you need to develop the plot, however once it is there don't fluff it up with super technical jargon or needless clutter.

    I believe the fourth book will be the most interesting so I will stick around until at least then. I have mixed feelings about the third realm and its botanical wonders... I feel like it will be a slog to get through.

    Another thing Michael! NAMES! For crying out loud, I understand you want to keep a theme with the Eastern/Asian culture names of people cities and places. But for a simple folk like me my mind is boggling trying to keep track of unrecognizable yet familiar sounding names. I understand this may be just me and my problem, however you should know your audience. Several times I mixed up important key characters with each other and completely misunderstood what was happening.

    I liked the mentors and they felt real to me. You made everyone at the auction sound pretentious so good on you.

    My recommendations for future books is to stay conscious of what you are writing and have a friend read your drafts, or publish earlier drafts for special readers to comb through and give you recommendations. Don't ever let anyone change what you write though. You change how you write it so it can be perceived and understood more easily, but don't ever change your content or characters because of someone elses opinion. They should be exactly how you picture them.

    TL;DR Great book, first one is better. This one is seems mostly like setup but has important things you can miss.

    Thank you for reading this longwinded review. If you are a fan of Litrpg's, I have reviewed dozens and you can go to my listener page to find others you might like. If you are Michael Chatfield, thank you for everything you do and keep up the good work. I am excited to see what our two war heroes get into next!

    Love the story idea, hate the writing.

    The author has a truly beautiful universe here. It's enjoyable, full of adventure, and contains some truly exceptional characters.
    Granted, the plot is rather simplistic and easily predictable, but the universe is still lovely. Unfortunately, despite the fantastic ideas for world-building at play here, and despite the narrator's truly heroic efforts, the author's continued massacre of the English language left me with no choice but to refund.
    Poor mechanics just kept getting worse.

    terrible(ly) fun

    Writing--
    this book reads like it was written in a different language, translated to a second language, and finally translated to english. i'm paraphrasing but here's an example:
    "beasts ran at the wall while the defenders on the wall secured their position on the wall. wolves dug their claws into the wall and pulled themselves up the wall until they were on top of the wall."

    Story--
    honestly fun. mixing magic with modern thinking is always an interesting route. "how do we make grenades? lets mix these plants with a spell!!" yeah. i'm into it.

    Performance--
    i cringed for a chapter or two when the reader couldn't figure out how to pronounce the name "Nguyen." I think he said it 6 different ways. i also don't think he's ever heard the word "apothecary." the voices are well defined though and he gets major points for keeping all the accents straight.

    Immer noch fesselnd

    Im Grunde bleibt das Buch spannend und fesselnd, man erlebt eine gute Entwicklung der Charaktere und kann die Unterschiedlichsten Situationen nachempfinden. Weiterhin ist die Länge Top und man wird nicht nur mit ein paar Kapiteln abgespeisst, sondern erhält eine Gesammte Story. Man sollte den ersten Teil jedoch gehört/gelesen haben sonst verliert man zu schnell den Faden.

    Der Sprecher macht auch einen guten Job, nur hätte ich mir bei den mittlerweile vielen verschiedenen Charaktere einen zweiten Sprecher gewünscht da die Unterscheidung auf Dauer doch sehr schwer wird.

    I liked the first better

    As I wrote about the first part I can just copy here since nothing changed: "I bought this book due to the good value (price to length) and did not regret it. The story is interestingly presented with an overall feeling positive vibe to it. The author has a good pace. I sometimes feel that texts where not checked by a lector (here and there a word will be used two times within one sentence) as well as diverging or parallel story lines that feel a bit unconnected."

    In addition I found myself disliking some mechanics in the world. For one most people seem to be decent on the inside but act horrible for some reason. NPCs are always very naive, to a point hard to believe as a reader.

    SPOILER:
    I really hate the economy. It doesn't make sense on multiple areas. To pick one: Someone visited an auction coming from a higher realm, thus paying 1000 gold for this. In the auction he hardly was able to pay around 600 gold. As the world is described in the books nobody would ever do such a bad deal.

    Good story but some big consistency errors

    I loved the story and world but there is a lack of editing visible. A big one of the consistency errors is the cost of using the Totems that without any explanation change from a monster core to a mana stone thats an increase by a factor of 1000.

    Great Story

    Following two main characters is actually really good. Both are very interesting and are really different from each other. Love the interactions between them.

    Decent story & weird Chinese names

    I think the narrator and the story are pretty enjoyable. I like the world of the Ten Realms a lot - the social, economic, cultural, influential differences between each realm elevates this story-world from many others. However, two things I will call out:
    1. the author's preference towards this word constellation "FILL IN BLANK isn't simple". There are so many beautiful words in the English language but instead of using it feels like every chapter 1/3 impressive events, objects, people etc. are described with "... isn't simple".
    2. Chinese names around every corner. I have NEVER heard/ read any book with a 1/10 of Chinese names in them. I mean if you have names like Shau Ching, Tzao Su, Chung, Hang Hou, which probably aren't the exact names from the book but you get an idea of how 85% of all characters in this series are called. To me, I can't remember these names because they don't make an impression on me. I also don't like sound of the Chinese language - imo it is one of the least attractive language on earth. Author if you HAVE create an amazing fantasy world populated by pseudo Asians, please use Asian languages that sound good e.g. Japanese.
