Summary

The penultimate installment of Dakota Krout's best-selling Divine Dungeon series!  

The necromantic armies are on the warpath and nowhere is safe. Even the presumed sanctuary of the floating dungeon controlled by Cal is threatened! The leadership of nearly all the sentient monarchies has been wiped out, and only the races most suited to repelling the advancing darkness have an intact chain of command.  

Cal learns quickly that the most pressing threat is not the far-off war, but is instead those entrusted with the general population's protection. As it turns out, the idea of having a flying dungeon for your people is very tempting indeed....

Dale has been facing his trials and tribulations better than anyone else could have hoped for, but when the war takes a turn for the worse, his duties are forcibly assumed by another. Since his only chance at survival is painful and rigorous advancement, Dale must learn if his strength of will can develop into strength alone. If not, the world itself may be at risk.

Wow

The epilogue got me. I'm still shivering and I almost saw it coming.

If you've enjoyed it so far, there is no reason you won't enjoy this. The story took a slight diversion away from dungeon building but it was clear that all of this was planned. So good.

Where's the final book?

Epic

I love this series and this book got me on the edge of my seat many times. highly recommended you listen to the previous audiobooks before your listen this one.
The narrator was excellent and with different voices for different characters made this story more enjoyable to listen so thank you Vikas Adam.
Thank you so much to the creator of this magnificent story Dakota Krout.

Disappointing

Lacks some of tharm of the previous books. I feel like the story got too big and would have liked to see time spent in the dungeon.

Hhhm..conflicted

Well...I’m a fan of the Devine dungeon series but this last instalment is...ugh..vicas Adams voices are..some what bland and when he tries to put some different notes..it’s just..unpleasant. I’m somewhat disappointed..Dakota croute writing is a little less then usual..but still enjoyable. Though vicas Adams “crazy voice” is extremely irritating.

The adventure continues

This book is funny and very entertaining. A splendid continuation of the series. It follows the amazing plot about a self aware dungeon but the story develops into so much more. I'm really looking forward to future books.

So much fun

Vikas Adams is an amazing narrator. He always brings a story to life. Dakato Krout always deliver with a fun story and where he even comes up with his ideas is beyond me. So creative.

It should have ended.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite series. The first three books were excellent. I felt like everything was planned out and the story had well developed plot points with a clear destination. Where the last book ended, it would have been the perfect ending.

I was eagerly awaiting this book and the next but my expectations were too high. This book leaves me with a sense of wanting. The escalation, in all ways of the word, is erratic and nonsensical. The previous books seemed so linear and each breakthrough was exciting. Here things seem out of place.

The dungeon doesnt really have the motivation he did in the previous books. The ending of Dungeon Calamity was the culmination of all his hard work and this book seems to sully that.

Most of my qualms cant be explained other than a feeling of something being wrong.

This book had taken such an extreme jump in conflict. A, S, SS, SSS ranked individuals and possibly above are introduced as the pinnacle of the world yet they are thrown around like candy.

Overall, I am not looking forward to the next book as the main conflict will be an annoying one. My favorite parts of the series were the small accomplishments that steadily piled up, not the blatant way the author tries to use the Shock factor.

TL;DR : Another good book in the series but I feel it is lacking in comparison to the others. The last book had a solid conclusion and this book lacks a good continuing plot. That said, this books still does have many of the lovable factors from the previous books.

Great but Disapointing

Krout delivers another entertaining entry to this series, but it seems the stress of deadlines shows. I can't say that I fully understand Krout's work load or how Audible handles it's partnerships with authors of long series, but I have seen other series rushed in the past on this platform.
The first 2/3s of this story feel like the typical smooth plot development that I've come to respect about this series. However, the last third of this story (around where the Climax starts) feels rushed and yet slow at the same time. Certain scenes seem to be left out while other less plot-relevant scenes are included at times that don't feel necessary. The development of certain characters and relationships come out of nowhere and it honestly felt like Krout was trying to rush the entire series to a completion, only to leave things on a cliff hangar.
I still love this series and even though I could see many glaring flaws towards the end of this book, they didn't cause the story to become unbearable. If you are a fan of this series then I'm confident you will still like this entry, but I'm fearful that this is a sign of a degrading in quality that I've come to expect of this series and Dakota Krout as an author.

A bit off

As much as I love the series, I do say that parts of the story have been rushed or off. Probably splitting this into 2 parts could have gave us more time to fill some gaps.
SPOILERS:
Where Xenocide revealed that he was controlling the necromaners along with the huge rune script would have been a good end and fill up everything before with more detail or stretched certain areas longer. Everything after that did feel a bit rushed that it could have been a book on its own or maybe half of a book.
I will say this has not been the best, but it was still good to me personally. Vikas’ voice is always a plus. I’m always a sucker for the new creatures and I’m curious on how the next book will turn out.

nice set up

after listening to the first two books of the completionist series I loved seeing the set up for the completionist in this book sprinkled out throughout the story. it was really good to get back to Cal and Dale but with the ending of this book I would recommend people to read the first two books of the completionist series first before reading this book. It makes me excited to see what comes out next.

Brilliant and wonderful!

Celestial Feces! what a ride, and im desolated that the end had come. Rejoice though, because Dakota spun a yarn, worth of the spindle of fate. The divine dungeon series is one of my favorites, wth over 500 fantasy audio books in my library. I loved the ending, it was absolutely brilliant. Thank you Dakota, and im looking forward to your next novel (crossing my fingers it's in the completionist series).

Dakota Krout never ceases to amaze

This entire series will sweep you up, make you laugh with bad puns (in the best way), and an overall story arc that will floor you as it unfolds. Wow, just wow!
