In The Land: Predators, the Mist Village has harnessed its power. With core buildings, professional fighters, and now their own dungeon, the settlement is primed to grow into a kingdom of true power and magic. The path to power has not been without risk, however. The MistVillage has been noticed. Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice, and fanatical kobolds from the Depths all plot the village's destruction.

Father of lit RPG? Doesn't mean that they are good at it. Having read the other books in the series this one is no better. Despite being so long, there is very little substance and a whole lot of repetition... This book has incest, beastiality, orgies, rape, penis joke's, character deaths that are never usually permanent, and follows exclusively an overpowered gung-ho main character, full of self-centred arrogant American bravado ( Think wannabe nerd cross with internet troll ). Set in a world where women do all the house work, and the men get to brag about how many they have had sex with. Dispite all this there is potential and thankfully many areas are lacking in descriptive depth to make this an easy listen albeit a little cringe worthy and should not be listened to aloud.

Someone has taken an ancient Earth religion and re-branded it for the 26th century. Multi-stellar, multispecies, the Cult of Ra has an answer for everything...Except a wizard who's sick of them preying on innocent people. Sunshine of Your Cult: Still getting used to life without magic, Esper accepts a mission that seems easy enough on the surface. An actor is searching for a kidnapped co-worker. Just two little problems with that. The actor seems intent on tagging along, offering questionable "help" along the way. And his co-star is in the clutches of a deadly cult.

Not for the Merry Band of Pirates.

This could be so much better if the author stopped repeating the same sequences over and over again. there needs to be a bit more variety than repeating the same mistakes over and over again. I don't want to give up on the series but after this book I don't feel interested in buying the next.

I quite enjoyed the first book of this series and while this book has some good elements it is overshadowed by childish perverted humour poor, goblin sex and sexist stereotypes. It is quite embarrassing listening to the author put so much effort into describing the sexual performance of the main character and his goblin companion over and over again. Seriously what was the author thinking?!
