Publisher's Summary

Humanity on the run. Desperate base building. Dark deeds done during daylight.

Joe has started to draw attention to himself and his abilities. While some of the attention is good and allows for personal growth, most of it is from various organizations that feel threatened by the sudden upswing of power that Joe's guild - The Wanderers - is attaining.

As the threat to Earth begins to reach its peak, all of humanity has a choice: flee to Eternium, or stay for an uncertain future. Some stay, some go, some don't make the choice quickly enough. In Ardania, the human Kingdom is seeing an unprecedented influx of people. Supply and demand is an issue no matter where you go, as a civilization of a few million can't prepare to accept an eighth of Earth's inhabitants at once.

Joe sets out to solve problems where he can, but he can't be there for everyone...especially when a group of smiling enforcers are working to bring him down.

More brilliance

An excellent third main entry in this wonderful series. Great character growth and progression, and a thrilling action-heavy plot sprinkled with interesting and engaging downtime. Though the narrator's expression was odd at times, their voice was great and the former did not take anything significant away from the experience.

Another fantastic addition

It's strange. I couldn't stand the narration change for eternium, but Luke Daniels did rexus so great and it carried over to this one. Fantastic performance and story.

I love this series more than any other I’ve ever read.... averaging an audio book every few days, Dakotas are the only ones I love listening too for a second or third time... way to Raze above the rest... Legend!

It's like he didn't even listen to the other books

I like Luke Daniels as a narrator, but the differences between him and Vikas Adams are like the differences between bread and butter. Spoiler: Magical Synesthesia makes women sound like men, and men sound like they're all from the deep South or from France. Even after listening to the first two books, I couldn't follow this one without constantly going back 30-45 seconds each time someone spoke. As much as I relate to Dakota's books, I will not longer engage in any series where the narrator is changed. The names are pronounced differently, the pace of the book is different, and ultimately the entire series is dashed for me.

More of an episode than a book.

First off, the transition from Vikas Adam to Luke Daniels came off much better than it did with Krout’s other series. It has been about the same amount of time for me between the last Adam and the new Daniels books in both series. I was definitely put off by the change in the Dungeon series, while in this one I actually like the Daniels version a whole lot more.

That aside, this book was entertaining but scatter-shot in its pace and plotting. The ending just sort of happened, and there wasn’t anything that resembled a unifying element that I could point to.

So in the end, it was worth the credit, but not anything particularly special.

Sadly the same problem as eternium persists

Let me start off by saying Luke Danials is a fine narrator but the difference between him and Vikas Adam is definitely jarring as someone who listened to the earlier books certain voices associated with the characters are markedly different which detracts from the enjoyment. The story itself is excellent with Dakota Krouts other work but in this case reading the book is more enjoyable.

Narration:(

you really have to be careful about switching up a narrator mid series. It's so jarring. Especially this guy, who seems to have a completely different take on all the characters. Sigh, it's really threatening immersion for me.

Luke Daniels growing on me

I would still like Vikas to narrate these books. Luke Daniels did the characters justice and I’m happy with the result, he still sucks at female voices though😜

Hate changing narrators

It’s so difficult to enjoy a book when the narrator is changed from prior books in the series

The narration threw me off

The story was pretty great man but i think it was a really bad move to switch narrators. Luke Daniels wasn’t bad but Vikas Adam did such an amazing job voicing the previous characters that these new voices felt foreign to me.

Excellent Book and Narration

Yes the narrator is different but personally I found it fairly seemless with this series. With the Divine Dungeon series it was much more jarring (although I got used to it and it was great), with this book all of the characters fit perfectly and I've been thoroughly enjoying it. The story itself I'm about halfway through and it's been amazing. On par with the previous books.

Changing Narrators half way through the series?!

The new Narrator's accents are worse than Joey from FRIENDS. Hard to listen to.

Great story, narration better than Eternium

I loved Lukes reading of Rexxus but very much disliked his reading of Eternium, to the point I couldn't even follow the story. For Raze his reading works out ok, it's different but I was still able to enjoy the story - unlike Eternium. There may be an important difference worth noting though: I didn't listen to book 2 right before this and it was ok, while I did relisten to book 4 of the dungeon series before book 5 and it was jarring. Perhaps hold off if you just listened to book 2, let the voices fade before you listen with the new narrator.

As for the story, it's as addictive as the others and I can't wait for more!

Phew, better transition than Dungeon Eternium

I was dreading this book because of the change of narrator, but its no where near as bad as Dungeon Eternium. Most of the characters voices are similar to the previous narrator (not sure if this was a conscientious effort, but glad of it), and there is even an amusing, if slightly contrived, nod towards the change in the story.
Once I got about half way through I had fully immersed in the new reality of Luke Daniels.
The story itself was wonderful as ever, even more so than divine dungeon, I cant wait to see where this goes.

Best one yet

There was a large amount of pressure on this book but I loved it sure the chances in narration weren't great but still it was amazing
So overall I encourage people to read or listen to it

change the narrator back

After getting the last few books, I was so looking forward to the next one. sadly this didn't work. I want to hear the story. The voices the narrator used was painful to listen too and didn't feel they fit for most. The main MC was fine. which is the only thing that saved it.

Still awesome.. even with unexpected changes!

So I was really looking forward to this book, i just finished the others again and was a little shocked to hear Luke Daniels .... This was not a bad thing. I like him and his voice acting, i think for me it was a shame that the previous was replaced as i really liked him too.

Having said all that.. the book and story its self was great. some what shorter that i would have liked, maybe a bit of a filler rather than a solid part of the story line, but that does not mean that i didnt enjoy it.

I'm looking forward to the next book! I would like to have known a bit more about whats happening on earth, but im going to guess thats what going to come up in the next book!

Great job as always!

Shame about the voice acting.

Was happy with the story following on from regiside. but what happened to the voice acting? I loved Jackons and poppy in regiside but the voices have totally changed in this book. also was real hard listening to the wolf man part. too many rrrr's over exaggerated. but overall a good book.

Too short

Definatly feel that there was not enough content in this book

The narrator did a excellent job taking over the series especially considering his less than best work on dungeon eternium.

Joe's progression seems to have stagnated it's not really noticable in this book but the next one needs to have more.

Also the hell was that 'game over' thing. Completely out of place and unnecessary there was a lot of other types of monsters to go with that dont ruin the law of the world and dont scream meta and require a staggering amount of plot armour to defeat. Any overwhelming strong monster would do 'game over' is just dumb.

Like Daniels

Is a beast of a man who can out perform the best of them. I will always choose to listen to his narrations.

However, that doesn't come close to how much I love the pun king himself, Dakota Krout. Another amazing story that will make me look forward to the next!
