Summary

Headmaster. Exile. Gladiator.

Backed into a corner, Artorian must play fast and loose with the laws of the land. To gather what he needs to progress, he will need to sacrifice what he’s gained in order to get this far.

With his new school and friends facing their most deadly challenges yet, Artorian finds an opportunity to keep them safe. The cost of it may be access to the new home he’s built, but that was never intended to be for him.

When he can ensure their safety, Artorian will begin pursuit of his grandchildren once more. If he finds them, will they want to be saved...or will they have found a taste for the darker powers they have accrued? It’s time to make the hard choices.

Death or graduation.

Another strong entry in this series

As this is book three in this series, it would be a bad starting point for anyone that wasn't already invested in the series, the first two books in this series are both highly enjoyable and you would be advised to read those first if you haven't already done so. This series in general and the main character in particular takes a somewhat different approach to the 'levelling' kind of process, Artorian's progression seems to be far more about him increasing his knowledge rather than simply being about the raw numbers of ranks or levels like many books in this genre and it works really well to produce an interesting character who could easily end up being overpowered if he was as singleminded about the numbers as other characters. The narrator helps to bring the main character in particular to life with their performance that also delivers a distinctive range for the supporting cast too. Overall, another enjoyable listen in this series and I can't wait to see where it goes next. [Note - I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.]

Another Gem from the Pair of Authors

If you have read previous works by Dakota Krout you will find the addition of Dennis to the mix of authors creates a very different personality in the writing style. This is great as Artorian the main character does have a very different view to all the other people in the Dungeons world. Now the character is fully established the book flows along at a rapid pace keeping up interest and developing another side to the Dungeons world. It helps explain more of the mechanics and background of how magic/cultivation works in the world and so really complements the group of stories as a whole. A must read addition to the “mountain Dale” world.

Tacked together parts of the last book and the next book.

While the overall storytelling and character development is just as well crafted as the previous two books, I was pretty disappointed by this one, but not because of any flaws with the story, writing or performance. The problem with this book is the plotting: the first half of it is really the last third of the previous book and the second half is the first third of the next book. To be clear, the previous book ends on a cliffhanger in the middle of an epic fight for no apparent reason. The first half of this book is the conclusion to that fight. It feels like the authors are just trying to squeeze more credits out of us and chopping the books into smaller pieces. The plot just doesn’t read like a volume in a series. It’s more like they wrote the entire series and then just chopped it into ten hour segments, rather than starting and ending the books at the places that the plot suggests. I feel like this is becoming a trend in the newer fantasy genres, and I have to say I’m not a fan. If a book needs to be 16 hours, then that’s how long it should be... it seems like the authors are cutting 2 books into 3 installments just to make an extra buck.

As Good As the First Two

If you haven’t made it through Axiom and Alumni, do that first. If you haven’t read Divine Dungeon, do that before any of it. If you have done all that, then you already know what this series is all about and you know whether you want to continue. For various reasons, this book is extremely easy to spoil accidentally. All I’ll say is that this book has all the same stuff you love (or not) about the previous ones.

Good book, interesting, but it does progress

I think that things moved along, but at the same time he is further back than before. Even with that though, I think I will definitely be buying the next installment. I really enjoy these books and this series. I hope there are many more to come.

Love the world and Mechanics which Dakota has made

I really can't say enough about this series. From the martial progression system to the quirkiness of the characters. I hope there's so much more left to this world.

amazing series!!

The personalities of the charecters is amazing, they all seem extremely well thought out. I think this 3rd book got alittle bit muddled with all the plots going on at once, but that is my only complaint. Aurtorian is rad, and it really makes me want to listen to the whole DD series again. there were quite a few hidden references, but I appreciated the nod to the Samurai Jack episode "Jump Good" the most. Anyways, amazing series, I'm recommending everything divine dungeon to anyone who has the time.

Samuri Jack Line!

Yes, I caught what you did there. Chapter 9. AKU Shape shifting master of darkness!!!! says What? You can fly? and Jack AKA the MC says "No Jump Good". Yes! I saw what you did Mr. Dakota Krout. Well done, bravo.
