Publisher's Summary

Gabriel was a successful magic student until a classmate framed him, forcing him to join the Adventurer’s Guild to survive.

Unfortunately, his career as an adventurer doesn’t turn out quite how he was hoping. While on his first delve, he discovers more about monsters, dungeons, and souls than he ever imagined. With that knowledge comes power and new friends. But even as his exotic companions enrich his life, they also give him more to lose. 

When Gabriel learns that time isn’t on their side, he has to find his way as a Dungeon Master before greedy adventurers and ravenous monsters strip away everything he holds dear.

Fantastic Light Fantasy

While things start off pretty horrifically I love how the story manages to stay mostly light while entrenched in darkness. Threaded with slice of life moments and levity, I really enjoyed the world and the characters and have both read and listened to this one more than once.

Excellent Narrator BUT

The main character seems to lack a brain. He is all but incapable of thinking for bimself.

Repetitively repetitive.

I liked the concept and the first half of the book. Once he made his first two bindings and started to plan what to do next, it seems like that’s all they did. Oh and avoid any way to increase the intimacy of the binding.

I got this title on audible and returned it.

Andrea was awesome as always.

meh

The immature description of female parts and over focus on that aspect killed the book for me. otherwise a decent dungeon core book. Narration was done well.

Get to the Point

My biggest issues with this book is the amount of time and text the author spends on filler moments that do nothing for the story. Every time you think the plot is progressing the author repeats a vomit inducing lovers moment that means little to the MCs relationship development. If the editor cut out half of the fluffed up sections you would have a great book. I started skipping 2 minute section towards the end just to keep the plot rolling. I hope the second book has less of those section and more plot progression.

Started good, got progressively worse

The author starts off strong; a big fight scene, setting up characters for development, and a massive betrayal leaving the opening part begging for more.

Then, it becomes hours of the MC being an absolutely clueless idiot, not understanding things to the point of incompetence, and when he finally gets people to explain things they spend way too much time doing fluff scenes that in no way progress the plot. He is so impossibly ignorant it made me give up this book.

Andrea Parsneau was great as always, but even she couldn't make a garbage MC more likeable.

disappointing

I grabbed this book because it was a book read by Andrea and it had a good story tag. I think that where the good part end. We all know the Trope this is, it may be worn but admit it that why we read these stories.
The problem is that is all it is, a good story line. 50% of the book done and all I can say is this is mind numbing slow pace with A weak / dumb MC.
I like to read and listen to stories put out by new writers. I read a lot on forums such as RR. and find quite a few worth being a patreon of. I like to watch the improvement and growth or the story and its writer. I won't tear up a new or growing writer, I'll give my Constructive criticism and thumbs up when needed. but this shouldn't have made it to publish for pay.
This needed a lot more growth before being publish for more than a dollar or two. It has, or had potential to be rewritten and improved on.
I normally don't write reviews but I waited till the next day before deciding to warn other from wasting money. But if like me you use your free credit a month for exploring new authors but like a weak mc, slower than slow pace of a well worn story we normally like. than this is for you. Otherwise I suggest passing it by. I'm going to see if he has other books and discover weather this was just beginning trash or a staple of his quality.

Enjoyed Immensly

The MC gets the raw deal to end all raw deals, but never gets too down on himself. The dungeon core is a bit quirky, but what would you expect from a glowing crystal ball. The bonded that the MC finds are quite amazing and it is definitely a great listen. Thank you Bastian Knight for creating such an intriguing story and Andrea Parsneau for breathing life into the characters. I highly recommend this book.

story is great

Loved listening to it. It is a dungeon core story, the harem side of it is almost a side thing. Really enjoyed the story.

an interesting first entry - concept + characters

andrea delivers a first rate performance here, bringing each character to life and giving the world some fantastic emotion.

the setting concept is fantastic and has a few homages to Dungeon Keeper (of course!) and sets the stage for further adventures.

that is also a bit of a flaw as well - the story spends a lot of time on build up and info dumping. the main character spends an awful lot of time navel gazing about the situation and it brings to mind the scenes in anime where a character narrates and describes what the audience has just seen. theres a lot of TELLING that goes on and it begins to feel like padding. luckily the story moves ahead before it becomes too repetitive. the world is interesting and has some fantastic potential.

also the characters, while amazing, had strangely disparate power levels when drama called for it. the hell hound felt like she should have been able to lawnmower base rate humans yet she struggled. the gorgon who was supposed to be able to turn whole adventuring parties to stone single handed, struggled against what were essentially hired mercs and town guards? the fight was great but itd have been good if they pasted the base guards easily and then the invaders played a trump card with some adventurers to ramp up the challenge.

theres a lot of plot hooks here setting up for the sequel. i will be listening to that! just hope the pacing is upped and we get a little more in the way of advancement and the main character thinking ahead. the romance was fantastic and showed a wonderful development and layer of growth. i look forward to more of that.
