Performance lacking

The first half of part 2 was probably the worst in the series so far. Most of it could be summed up as people explaining surface level concepts to each other. The performance is what really bothers me though, you can hear nearly every intake of breath by the narrator and his microphone makes the ‘s’ sound way too sharp. Male characters sound very similar and are hard to differentiate, females are even worse.

Long time fan of the series so I’ll keep listening but not taken in like I was with the first 4 books.

fool me once

I love this series of books was looking forward to all ten realms after the first 2 books. I found the narrator's voice on Rug Rat hard to deal with for the first book and all other characters where spot on good by the end of the 2nd book Rug Rats voice was set and couldn't imagine it differently. Then book 3 the narrator seemed more like an AI voice lacking depth just a flat performance. This book was as bad maybe worse and has ruined the audiobooks set for me. I would pass on book 3 and 4.

Great in-depth word building and surprises!

Bingeworthy series with in-depth lore, lighthearted shenanigans and dark realities. Also, author is somehow getting these out so fast. Bring on seventh realm part 1 audiobook!

Still a decent series with good prospects for more

Great narrator even after the change
He did well to keep the voices similar to original

This is a great series that has slowly gotten muddier overtime by spending to much time focused on other characters
While this book still feels like that
The series feels like the next book could start to remedy that

Good book tho defiantly worth a listen if youv "read" or read the others

BRING BACK TODD MENESSES!

How do you switch narrators mid-series!😱😱

I love the story line, the characters, the natural humor and ribbing between the main characters (Rugrat & Eric), it clearly feels like the author might’ve actually had relationship(s) similar.

All of it works together, every element it seams, fits naturally into the story’s flow, INCLUDING TODD, it was amazing!!! I don’t think I’ve ever waited for a book release like I’ve waited for book number six!!! Then, almost as bad as not writing ERIC into book 6, the Narrator with talent to spare, just vanishes, *poof,* like fart in the wind! So disappointing.

BUT WAIT!!! There’s more! In addition to playing switcheroo with the narrator, because book six was a little longer, someone made the decision to break that book into two halves. From the listener’s perspective, it looks and feels like someone is only worried about milking a listener for two price tags instead of one. Seriously, SERIOUSLY disappointing. (I wish I could add italics and underline some things for more emphasis)

I don’t have the words to express my disappointment.

If not fir the writing and story, I’d have rated it a 1 or 2, as it is, I can’t help but give a 5. Fantastic Writing. 2 for the Narrator.

Forgive my errors in spelling and Grammer. I’m writing at stop lights between my service calls! 😂🤣

Slept through it

Fell asleep throughout most of the book. I just can’t get into it like the previous books. I didn’t even rewind after I slept through it. The narrator has no real change for different characters. I will buy the remaining books on kindle.

spoon feeding

while character development is great and so is the story the author tends to spoon feed information leaving sections of information dumps where systems are over explained brining the listener out of the story to listen to a long monolog that provides little to the story and can be eluded to for a more smooth delivery of info without jarring pauses in the story

Disappointment

the author really needs to consider renaming his book titles. As even less of part 2 took place in the 6th realm. He actually just skips over all the highly anticipated orc and dungeon content.

this has become a boring series of debate and discussion about crafting. not even actually crafting. Almost nothing happens in this book that is worth while.

the author has completely lost touch with the roots of what made this series exciting and fun. there is no more 'new' lands or progression. there is no more attribute gaining, technique or spell creation. hardly any combat. and no combat where Eric or Rugrat can truly shine. there's no more roughing it out. testing there metal in a new realm. the author must have taken some horrible horrible advice a few books back. because these books have gone to utter crap.

also why switch the narrator? we don't know who is talking anymore. don't get me wrong I like Neil as a narrator. but he is better for a single mc narration.

chattield I hope you see and read this post, and do something about it before you completely ruin a good thing.

Breathing

God this is horrible. The reader’s breathing was higher than his voice I couldn’t stand listening to this.

Unfortunately the 10 realms died in the 5th for me

I really enjoyed the first five books, they were well written and well performed. Unfortunately the new narrator just isn't up to delivering the story with the same passion Todd did. I powered through the first part of The 6th Realm, hoping i could get passed the uninspired performance, but I couldn't get past the first couple chapters of this. The monotonous delivery made it hard to differentiate characters and really lacked the passion the make the story interesting. I'm betting the book is just as well written as the first 5, so I may check out a written version, but I won't be buying anymore of this series performed by the new narrator.

Too much chars

This is so bad dude so many characters so many stupid boring side stories there is so much explaining every friking minute is this a how to cultivate, craft etc book? This is a fanatsy story stick with reality of a fantasy story is. I skiped so much of this book because i just couldnt stand "teaching" dont waste ur money or credit on this. This is normaly what happens with a long lived story. I just want at least half of the book to be action fighting cultivating something exciting. Frist book was just eric and rugrat now its eric, rugrat and the other 50 names

Disappointing

I found myself skipping many parts of the book as they were extremely boring. There is far too much detail of the tertiary characters and their many, many, many meetings. It is like watching live legislature (CSPAN). I am in the series for the Eric and Rugrat adventures, not the trade policies of the Beast Mountains. Summaries of "off screen" actions would suffice where there is an entire, detailed chapter.

story is still good but not the same

going to take it down from a five-star to a three-star, it's just not the same after the narrator switch

If the next one is in multiple parts I won't buy

Story - Loved It.
Performance - Too fast in places and the voices being different to the first 5 is very off putting.

Having the book in two parts looks like a greedy move and if the next book is in multiple parts I will not support that greed so will not buy it.

I swear I didn't cry

You absolutely have to read this to the end. if you've made it to the 6th Realm it will definitely bring a tear to your eye.

Another Banger!

Really good story and plot progression overall👏

I think the narration has really improved from the sixth realm part one to this one. As seems to be the case when a narrator reads their second book, they almost seem to become more comfortable with it.

Really enjoyable overall and Im definitely going to be picking up the next one!
