Summary

All Jake Goodman wanted was a good night’s sleep. But at what cost? 

A former MMA fighter with a crippling case of insomnia, Jake is finally able to get some shut-eye for the first time in his life. Sort of. 

As soon as he falls asleep, Jake is transported to a dreamworld known as the Orange Vale. Able to wander his dreamscape at will, Jake sets off to conquer the dungeons of the Orange Vale, facing off against hybrid monsters and eerie shadow dragons. 

Alongside a beautiful beast tamer named Catriona and his pitbull, Bruno, Jake challenges these dungeons with the hopes of capturing their dungeon cores and freeing the beautiful dungeon maidens trapped within. 

As things get more complicated in both worlds, Jake faces an existential crisis. 

Can he sort his dream life from his real life? And when his two lives inexplicably cross paths, can he solve the riddle before the Darkness destroys the Orange Vale? 

Who is the mysterious Dungeon Goddess, and how is she related to both worlds? 

With the help of friends old and new, join Jake on his epic journey to get the answers he so desperately needs. 

Dreams really can become a reality, and as Jake is about to discover, nightmares can, too. 

Listener discretion is advised: Dungeon Goddess contains multiple romantic partners/undefined relationships.

Shit just happens

No flow, to many random things just happen. 2d characters, especially the battle wafuis. I HATE how the MC can just fall asleep during battles, with zero consequences. MMA fighting loses all credibility without any clear power progression, especially when fighting guys with swords and magic.

The author really needs to let his stories breathe, and tell the stories through the characters instead of jumping from one plot point to the next.

If it weren't for RL drama in NYC and the narratiors talent, I probably would dropped this book mid way.

Wonderfully entertaining

Gideon Caldwell is actually the harem penname for the best selling multi genre author Harmon Cooper so the expected quality is there and it doesn't disappoint as this harem cultivation story ticked all the boxes for me with an interesting backstory and strange world with plenty of hot babes and action.
Narration by Savannah is great as well although she is new to me and particularly liked her voicing of a few femLe characters.
I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts for everyone.

Great first book

Can't wait for the next one. The book has a great storyline but there are a few adult scenes which not everyone might enjoy.

A fantasic story and performance

Written by Harmon Cooper under his new pen name, this is a fantastic dungeon core/harem story. The interaction between the world's feels really unique. Gideon's character are all very well realised. Great action of both kinds and there is lots of scope for more stories. The performance by Stephanie Savannah is fantastic and hopefully she will be narrating more of Harmon/Gideon' s work.

Not to my taste.

The fact that the MC travels back and forth between the "dream world" and the real world makes the "dream world" feel less real, and makes me not care as much what happens there.

Otherwise the book was well written, and interesting.

The narrator did an amazing job.

a very interesting take on the genre

Fair warning I received this for free and in exchange for a review.
while I'm not the best at making reviews I'm going to try my best here

overall I think was pretty good it was definitely interesting and it definitely pose some questions as to how I would respond in a situation like this where if suddenly you started dreaming and you were in another world would you think you're crazy Will you talk to your doctor would you tell your closest friends and family and I think that for a story with some erotica in it it was a really good blend 90% of this was story and there was some erotica mixed in every so casually and I think it's spiced up the moments while the story did its job and wasn't overshadowed by the erotica

The character definitely did some choices where I don't really think is the most realistic as for how he tackled the fact that he was living in two worlds I think he was too easily giving up his current life for the other life and while I think that is a valid choice some people would make I just felt like that it was a bit unrealistic how quickly he just decided that the other world was the real one or the one he wanted to be most part of because I mean I feel most people in this situation would definitely have quite a few moments where there questioning whether they're truly sane or not

overall if you want a good dungeon crawler with some cute girls and interesting plot with a sprinkle of erotica in there it's going to be good I'm excited to find out what's next

Ehhh... Not the best

Several times in the story I just kept asking "Why?", and the only reason there is, was to keep the story going in the direction the author wanted it to end. Not very common sense or fluid storytelling.

Male power fantasy in its purest form.

If what you need is to graft yourself on to a generic protagonist and imagine an alternative version of yourself kicking ass and getting the girl, then this book is for you.

If you're not looking for quintessential male power fantasy, I'd recommend something else.

Good Story

I really enjoyed the book, the story was good as well as the pacing and an interesting take on in another world. Narration was very well done. Only thing I would say is that the disclaimer should add explicit adult situations or explicit sex in the warning. I’m glad I wasn’t listening to it around my kiddos. Great book all in all just don’t have little ones or listen to it at work without headphones

fun diversion

Fun story and good narration.

Jake is a museum curator who is struggling with insomnia. When he can sleep he finds himself awake in another world - one filled with dungeons and dungeon maidens who are looking to be conquered.

Stephanie does a good job with the narration.

A fun escape - not the deepest book, but good fun
