Dungeon Born Great book Well worth the time and moneyI had recently read another story about a dungeon intelligence and was reluctant to read this as it seemed a rehash of the other book Well I gave in an read this book and was blown away A much better writing style with much greater character depth I can t wait to readFYI the other book was Slime Dungeon I liked it but the main character was irritating some times. So, maybe you know these people They like to watch other people playing video games on youtube Like to watch people doing their walk through not because they re stuck int heir own game but to watch the game It s a thing, btw Okay, hold that.Do you know the game dungeon keeper If you do, that wasfun, but still, you get the idea It s a game about being a dungeon heart and you get to control your minions and open up your dungeon and you are the bad guys killing hero adventurers So, maybe you know these people They like to watch other people playing video games on youtube Like to watch people doing their walk through not because they re stuck int heir own game but to watch the game It s a thing, btw Okay, hold that.Do you know the game dungeon keeper If you do, that wasfun, but still, you get the idea It s a game about being a dungeon heart and you get to control your minions and open up your dungeon and you are the bad guys killing hero adventurers who come to loot you.Okay, so this book is if you were watching a bloodier, but way less viscous evil sexual version of that game But, like, the whole game, so you get to watch the tutorials, and the behind the scenes, and the secret unlocks you get to hear all the narration plus narration by the player playing the game The only slight difference is you ALSO yay get to see the special tutorial on the heroes outside the dungeon, and how THEY level up and get stronger too the book gets a big meh Krout treads well known territory and didn t even give us dark mistresses to make it spicy Really come now The character Hanz was practically begging to meet up with one.But, this really read like someone story boarded a video game, was told it was already made twice then wrote a book instead That s probably not fair, nor what happened, but unfortunately that exactly what I get out of it and exactly how it felt.It was full of good meta idea for explaining why adventurer s monsters actually get so powerful I grant most systems don t ever really explain it and this one at least gives it a better shot then most but after sitting through the entire thing I m nowsure then ever that, really, it s just not that important I m trying to think of all my Dd players post battle meditating on their inner essence and I m thinking not Adventurers are way to paranoid and it s not until the very end they ever mention there s a watch while they meditate.And, all the stuff going on in the dungeon, centuries of professional dungeon delvers and,critical, whole armies of people who dungeon delved and now work on the periphery of figuring out magical properties down to their finest details Clearly a dungeon based advanced magical society and no one s figured out they re sentient I m not buying it There s a pretty clear cut way of doing things among dungeons but in all this time no one as figured out how they do it or what becomes of them, or any of it A definite symbiotic relationship exists, and we the readers can see it but my issue is that with legions of experts in the world they haven t gotten it yet Anyways, I m calling this one a positive 2 stars A lot of effort was put into this, and it shows, and it s full of great ideas, it has a whole system of magic and power accumulation that affects every being in the entire world and, in many ways, stitches together a magical world better then most any book I ve ever read.However, we tread a lot of ground without ever going anywhere, there really isn t a plot outside of characters gettingpowerful from doing a variation on the same thing which, in game parlance, is called grinding Unfortunately it s about has fun in a game as it is in a book The good parts of this book that shine get buried in A LOT of meh, mechanical muck, and explanation to our two stupefied, if not plain clueless, main characters.Also, to the author, it s okay to make a joke, a good one or even a groaner of a pun, and leave it We don t need an arrow pointing to it every time Just let it be man, let it be.EDIT some grammar and errors A Powerful Dungeon A Sheep Herder Turned Noble Their Path To Ascendance Through Cultivation Conquering Dungeons And Using Them To Grow Has Long Been The

instead of too, etc The author should just stick to DM ing His story was inventive but he spent way too much time explaining the intricacies of the science behind the magic These explanations were tedious that sometimes I would skim over or just put the book down and read something else for a while Also it seemed that he couldn t decide who his main character was The dungeon, Cal written in first person or Dale written in third person And I frankly didn t like Dale so his chapters did not make forinterest Also, I cannot state enough how much I hate when authors switch from first person to third person from chapter to chapter Pick one, stick with it, or don t write The world was too much like DD Treasure and item drops and leveling up made it feellike reading about someone playing a game than reading a fantasy book It was kind of interesting, except when the author spent too much time describing it all in mundane detail I read the whole thing I really don t know why Possibly because I hate DNF ing a book Maybe because it was a guilty pleasure But there is like a 98% chance that I will not bother to read the rest of this series I d roll for initiative but I don t want to In fact, thanks to this book, there s an even higher chance that I m just going to start ignorings recommendations for me from here on out This was an OK LitRPG story It was nothing special or

LitRPG story I usually love Dungeon Core LitRPG but I think this one suffered a little bit for not being one of the first ones I ve come across The story focused on two main POV characters Cal, a newly born dungeon core, was the first POV His character was mildly interesting as he had previously been a human but remembered nothing of his previous life and had no idea how to be a dungeon core He got paired with a bossy but still quite fun pixie teacher Cal s story mainly focused on him growing his Dungeon and battling against the adventurers that entered his midst The second POV character was Dale A run of the mill guy who was the only survivor of a group that stumbled into Cal s dungeon As the lone survivor the land rights went to him We followed his story as he had to deal with everyone pouring into his land to test their wits against his new dungeon He had to try some adventuring himself to level up so he could better deal with the enemies he had that would have preferred him, and his claim on the land, gone The story was OK It started really slow but did get better as the story progressed The sad thing is Cal s tale started OK and then got a little dull It felt like he never really developed on did a lot of interest after his initial introduction Dale s POV started slow but really improved as the story got going It was interesting to see him have to deal with the various different sorts of people who popped up that had an interest in settling in his new land I felt like it was particularly fun that he learned he had to deal with a lot of politics and economics as well as just the physical threats that came his way A slight negative is the fact that while Cal and Dale are OK characters they are not quite likeable enough for the roles they are cast in by Dakota Krout They both do things that show they lack a bit of empathy and have questionable morals yet it is clear the author still expects the reader to be rooting for both characters I was rooting for them, but only just, and that was a slight issue My feeling is that it is only 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 a fairly run of the mill dungeon core LitRPG I ve read a bunch of books just like it in the last few years and quite a few of them have had faster paced stories,humour, and better lead characters I m on the fence about picking up the second book in the series Normally I d pick up the second book in a solid 3 star series but the thing bothering me about this one is the fact that I just read that the series changes audio narrator for the final book That is the absolute WORST The reviews are awful and since I m already not a fan of the new guy, Luke Daniels, I cannot imagine his being anything other than a complete opposite of this series current audio narrator in terms of voices and tone so that has managed to kill my enthusiasm a bit for pressing on with the series if I ve got that to suffer in future instalments Audio Note Vikas Adam did a decent job with the audio Rating 3 stars An interesting take on Dungeon KeeperAs a fan of the original Bullfrog game and sometimes of its various remakes or modern versions , I guessed I d be interested in that book.In theory, it shouldn t really work The real reason it does work is that Krout is well aware of the conventions of the genre and the tropes, and he does apply them with gusto and self conscious humor Specially when they do not make sense at all, like when Dani insists that dungeon monsters have to be called Mob because An interesting take on Dungeon KeeperAs a fan of the original Bullfrog game and sometimes of its various remakes or modern versions , I

them with gusto and self conscious humor Specially when they do not make sense at all, like when Dani insists that dungeon monsters have to be called Mob because Mob stands for Mobile OBject, because that s how the first online CRPGs did implement them and it is absolutely impossible in any fictional universe to have a good reason to call them that Or the World of Warcraft inspired inability to tell an opponent s level if it sthan two full ranks above you which makes you wonder what is the real level of Dani Or the totally goofy leveling system.Once you figure out this is a game session, not a real story, you start to make sense about why things go that way and not another If the rule is that a dungeon can use only one base for mob boss per dungeon rank, you realize that the fact that Dani does not lure every single critter around to add to Cal s repertoire makes perfect sense For a game.There s a couple flaws in the book, of course There s a bit too much emphasis on game mechanics which can be boring for most readers Some aspects of the characters are underdeveloped, or even completely ignored, like Dale s original behavior when he is introduced.Thankfully, there s enough plot lines prepared or hinted at to fill a good series, and Krout did carefully limit his story beats so that not everything is blown in the first book.I wonder though Is Kantor ranked in the S triple S range or above Almost GoodThe plot is reasonably interesting, but the world and characters are rather prosaic The dialogue and personality of the two main characters, Cal and Dani are fairly weak Side

much This book is going to be pretty audience specific, after reading Andrew Rowe s Sufficiently Advanced Magic and enjoying my first LitRPG I decided I d check out some.If you enjoyed his book, you will probably enjoy this book, but be aware this leans waytowards RPG than mixed with epic fantasy like Rowe s book.So, ya know when you re doing dungeon raids in video games This book explores just how these dungeons come into being, why they spawn loot, why they have ranked monsters, how the bosses are built, and level up magic rankings.This book is a sentient dungeon POV I can t say I ve ever read anything like that before, and it was a ton of fun A human has been sucked into a soul gem and starts spawning a dungeon He s befriended by a dungeon wisp and together they start building and leveling up the dungeon with the goal of killing as many adventurers as possible I ve never read a book where I laughed so much at deaths of adventureers, it was a very unique POV.There are two main characters, the sentient dungeon who I m not counting as human because although he started that way, he remembers nothing of being a human and is now something else entirely, he s definitely not a person any His name is Cal, and his dungeon wisp is named Danny I think the spelling is right, I audiobooked.Then there s the human adventurer POV, Dale and he s joined by a group who s working to level him up as well So you go back and forth between the adventurer trying to level up his magic and gain armor and other loot, and the dungeon who s determined to kill him.This book was pretty funny, the dungeon can hear what the adventurers are saying, and one time someone was commening how they need new boots so Cal spawns three left boots and finds that hilarious.This book will have a lot of appeal to people who play a lot of video games and enjoy books with a ton of magic explanation dialogue The beginning of the book is pretty dense with info drops about how magic works and how you level up, so if that part of Rowe s book bogged you down, this book is a step above that and you will probably want to pass.There are elves, dwarves, politics of how the dungeon loot should be distrubuted and tons of magical monsters The book isn t that long, around 300 or so pages, and the pacing was really tight lots of dungeon raids and action, and it s actually mixed with a decent amount of politics between the elves and humans.The dialogue was well done, def not wooden, it flowed and was engaging.There s not a terrible amount of world building, you hear a bit about different tribes of elves and dwarves, humans of different countries but the whole book stays in the same setting on the same mountain and dungeon.I gave it a 4 on good reads, it s definitely not a 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, and drops loot just made me laugh the whole way through the book The characters aren t flat, but they aren t super complex and in depth the way you d expect from an epic fantasy, they re mostly fun and engaging.I 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 cravingof his fabulous voice acting I was not disappointed, he was great with this series as well.It s cheap It s free for kindle unlimited prime members, and it s 3.99 for people who don t have the membership Worth a try if you think this sounds interesting.Super audience specific, but really fun for those who appreciate this sort of thing It actually has a pretty impressive goodreads score, with 900 ratings it has a 4.44 avg score rating, with most people giving it 5 stars If Like me you re an old hand at
