Publisher's Summary

Trapped between worlds. Potentia might be the way out. Time to kill Something.

Luke is an apprentice leather worker, training with his family to one day take over the business. He and his friends Andre, Taylor, and Zed have known each other forever, and swear that nothing will ever tear apart their friendship.

Then the Royal Decree comes. With the Dynasty of Dogs invading, and strange monsters appearing in the Hollow Kingdom, a draft has been implemented. Everyone 17 or older is required to be tested for "Potential". If they have it, they will join the mysterious and renowned Ascender Corps. If not, they will be drafted into the Legion as a forced recruit.

Three of the friends test as powerful, or dangerous, classes of Ascender. Luke is found to have Potential, barely, but when he steps through the portal to begin his training…he is pulled to a plane that shouldn't exist. With no class trainer, the possibility of survival is low. Luke decides that he wants to live, and keeping his humanity isn't going to help.

His best chance is going Full Murderhobo.

Just buy it, it's good.

Well to start of with this was a surprisingly fresh take on the litrpg genre, with it being the light hearted but heavy thing that it is. The story was fun and though I see a few people upset with the character swaps every couple of chapters, it's not as bad as they make it out to be, yes one of the story lines isn't as good as the others, it still adds something different and in the end gives a good fleshed out character. The narrator did an amazing job, gave all the characters life and personality. (also loved the bloopers at the end) So if you are on the fence but enjoy anything litrpg or another world type of story, definitely pick this one up. Cannot wait for the next book.

Simply the best.

Better than all the rest. Really good litrpg/cultivator type story, a decently fair split between plot and system exposition. Really good story and pacing, the madness is portrayed real well. Honestly I am kinda rooting for Zed as long as he teams up with Luke. You just had to put one more "Ruthless" in there didn't you?

Engaging story, excellent narration

The narrator really brings life into the story with an engaging performance. The story itself has some very detailed litrpg elements, which do drag on a bit, however, the narrator delivers them with an infectiously cheerful tone which allows them to fly by. The multiple perspectives covered in the story at first perplexed me as some are clearly more interesting than others, however, later in the story the summation of them leads to an interesting teamup, and future for the series. Looking forward to the next book.

Cool.

Although the story is a bit cliche and some of the reversals are sort of corny. It is still a decent story that ties into the divine dungeon universe quite well. Im assuming that the murderhobo has the same mana signature as the system which is why he is special and the worlds are a testing phase to create more and different mobs as im assuming Arthur the bear is same one we see in ruthless. All the different systems shown must be prototypes for classes. with the ascension part being able to go into different monster dimensions and/or zones where they spawn from. as all the different monsters arnt spawned out of nothing.

Best from DK so far

I'm an old head from WuxiaWorld ...so I love cultivation novels. This is shaping up to be my favorite series from Mountaindale Press so far!!! DK was the first author I found who really did a good job of introducing aspects of mana channels and cultivation into western style fantasy. Divine Dungeon scratched that itch, but only barely. The world building was great, and the whole city development aspect was great too ...but I wanted the story to go deeper and I feel like DK ended that story arc prematurely. Arcanist is enjoyable, but it's really snarky n that takes a bit away from the "seriousity" of the MC's development. I still like the series, but again I feel like it was missing something. Artorion is dope, and I will continue with the series, but again I think the snarkiness is a little thick and it detracts from the story for me. Also, at times Artorion feels aimless and pointless ...and that's not my favorite style of story-telling. I enjoy trying to figure out how the MC will overcome the challenges set before him/her, and guessing at what curve balls the author might throw. Artorion doesn't allow for anything of that, he's just kind of floating around all the time. Murderhobo is finally picking up where I felt that Divine Dungeon left off. There are funny moments in it, but it doesn't try to make everything into a joke. The magic system is really diverse and well executed. I'm enjoying the development of all the MC's. They have real problems with real consequences. There's great world building happening, in a way that keeps me curious and excited. The story is keeping me engaged and I'm loving it. I hope this ends up being more than 3 books, and regardless I hope DK sticks with this style of story-telling for his next series in the Cal-multiverse as well. This one is a winner. Highly recommend!!!

Misleading book description

So this book says that it’s going to follow one main character but that’s not true. The book follows three main characters and jumps between the three because they are separate most of the book. For someone who HATES multiple main characters this was extremely annoying. On the upside, two of the three characters are actually enjoyable to read. The supposed main character was my favorite and I wish it had focused on him.

Ridiculous

If you want to see the real reviews, go to the Goodreads website. Amazon Audible pulls reviews for any books that have been returned. So so books tend to float to the top with better ratings because they are mostly positive and very skewed.

Just god awful

Seriously? 4.8 star average? When I see a book with ratings that high, I'm expecting something extraordinary. What Dakota Krout is serving up here feels more like a first draft of a poorly conceived novel, This is not even up the the poorest quality standards that I'd be looking for in a book store. Maybe I'm being a little hard... but I'm making up for the solid 4.8 review... where did that come from? That is like saying this is up there with the greatest fantasy novels of all time. The characters here are paper thin. The story keeps shifting from one character to another... there are four of them... i think. It was hard to tell. Maybe part of the problem was the over the top narration going on. Gilliland has a good cartoon exaggerated manner... but the same voice was applied to each character and it honestly got annoying after a while. The plot... while kind of interesting, was just a rehash of 200 other lit rpg books. While not perfect Aleron Kongs books are better in this this genre. Seriously, this book is not worth a credit. I've got around 700 audible titles in my library & I'd rank this very nearly at the bottom.

Should be 6 hours shorter

There is a very obvious part where the story starts about 6 hours into the book, everything before that was very boring.

Half of a great story

Good premise and fun characters but with the short length of the book split into a few characters it just feels like half a story.

Rammed full of puns

Lots of puns, wit and laughs abound. I really enjoyed the descriptions and differences in the classes of the four protagonists. Looking forward to the next in the series.

Fun & well written

I was dubious of this book because of it's title, I was worried it'd be messy with not enough plot/story. As always with Dakota the power system made sense and was simple, the characters felt like real people and I liked who they are and what they did. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys fantasy with a bit of game logic. You should listen to this book, you will fully agree and enjoy with how Luke(main character) reacts to his situation. Being a murderhobo now sounds like a fun idea. (listen to this book it's great)

Unique world(s) and characters

This story is amazing, the MCs are entertaining and unique, they all follow different classes and all have distinct personalities. The world or world's, the multiverse is known and travelled across, provide a stimulus for great material as each home different monsters and surroundings. Also this book contains the puns, jokes and humor as seen in DK's other books. Finally the narrator did a fab job and I hope he continues to narrate as he has an excellent voice

Loved it!

Every aspect about this book was fantastic. A completely new direction for Dakota Krout and by far the best book he’s written in my opinion. It had me laughing throughout and was captivating from the start. I would highly recommend giving it a go if you are familiar with his work or Litrpg.
