way too much stat sheeting and the narrative lacks all of Dakota's usual humour and charm

good book did not care for narrator

a fine conclusion? to the divine dungeon series, missed the superb narration Vikas Adams brought to previous instalments and found the new narrator to be particularly poor at feminine voices

too short

enjoyable, but the way audible pricing works makes it hard to recommend this over other good books that are twice as long

this book is like a train wreck

somewhere deep down you know it is god awful, yet you can't help but be strangely fascinated

I love side stories to series as a way to flesh out shallow supporting characters, so I was really excited when I saw this released. this is why I am even more disappointed to find it written like bad fanfiction. the characters come across as comically flat and one dimensional and the plot is neither interesting nor insightful. if anything, this book detracts from the main story rather than adding to it

the sound effects

another good story nearly completely ruined by terrible sound effects whose ever idea it was to put them in clearly didn't listen to the finished product

would have returned if not 3 books in

I really like the story and world of these books but the sound effects ruin the experience. no game gongs ship bells or chimes hammers every prompt when going through a list of 20 prompts and no real gamer would go through that without Turing sound effects off in the options. they are irritating, out of place, and I can't believe any editor/publisher listened to the final product any approved it.

better

still too many irritating sound effects and too much time spent going over stats, however it is definitely better than the first book

good book but my god the sound effects

a solid litrpg story, however the performance has 2 big flaws.

1. the sound effects are over the top, an occasional chime would be okay. but if I wanted trumpet fanfares then I would listen to a graphic audio production.

2. there is way too much time spent going over prompts and stats. things like race descriptions and the 20 second level up message really didn't need to be repeated over and over.

good read but a missed opportunity

this book is a good example of where less would be more. the speed runner angle is interesting but ruined by the usual litrpg special snowflake tropes. the two main plot points should have been 2 separate standalone books
