Summary

The Light strives to purify the kingdom of Starevos from evil...and only Dungeon Lord Edward Wright stands in their way.

The Heroes of the Militant Church, led by Inquisitor Gallio, scour the forest in search of the Haunt, while Ed desperately attempts to uncover the secret behind the Heroes' origin. Can Ed and his friends defeat the Inquisition and secure their own place in the world, or are they destined to become the monsters of their own tale?

All over Ivalis, the portents announce blood and fire as the ancient traditions return and abominable creatures long thought forgotten stir in their tombs. Both the Dark and the Light loom hungrily over the Haunt, and only one thing is certain...

If pushed, Dungeon Lord Edward Wright will fight against them all.

Soundbooth Theater is proud to present the third book of Hugo Huesca's horror/comedy/Gamelit epic, The Wraith's Haunt. Ed's challenges keep building, and this time he has to face the Inquisition instead of a new monster. And the Incquisiton's primary weapon is Ed's old guild! Join us for the best audio production of Dungeon Lord yet, complete with a standout performance by Annie Ellicott as the various ladies and spiders of the Haunt, and a stampede...of Hell Chickens.

Amazing series, all 4 books are awesome

I've listened to all 4 of these audio books and I have to say this series is top 3 I ever listened to. Period. And I actually do not like "gamification / LitRPG" concept in fantasy. That says a lot. The performance of the Soundbooth Theater is WOW, just... WOW. They really brought the book to life, I loved all the voices and effects. It may sound cheesy but in my opinion it's not just an audiobook it's an experience.

What I really did love about the book was that everything made sense. All actions had long-lasting reactions in the world. Character building was exquisite. It was amazing that even in book 4 so much from ALL previous books made perfect sense as if the author had everything figured out 4 books in advance. The mind brood idea was genius and how it fit in the world history and the impact of it. The main villain of book 4 was just soooo awesome. It was easy to almost agree with the main villain and think "maybe he is actually right !?" and that's what I call good writing. No soulless "haha I'm evil I want to destroy everything" but deep, meaningful stuff with seemingly real history, their own philosophy etc. Edward's crew and inquisition also had their share of great personalities.

Hugo, please do not even think of writing any spin-off books and concentrate on completing this story :) If Soundbooth team will narrate this this could end up being my favorite series ever. Big round of applause. *CLAP CLAP CLAP*

Huesca, Hays and Wllicott Do it Again

I hihhly recommend this installment as well as the series as a whole. I'm already an avid fan of this story, and have enjoyed every minute of it.

RPG/gaming-style fiction is fairly new to me, aside from the Dungeon Lord books, but this series has really set the bar high. The author writes his characters with plenty of depth, and my heart was genuinely pounding with concern for them during some of the more dangerous parts. I don't want to see a single member of The Haunt come to harm and that kind of engagement is rare from me.

The recording team are also brilliant, and I can't fathom how talented they must be to cover the width and breadth of emotions, accents, inflections and tones for all the characters.

I'm so looking forward to the next one, and will save myself for the Audible version.

Thank you to the author and sound production team for some phenomenal entertainment!

Slow build up

It was slow to start with a lot of narrative drama that did nothing to advance the story or spark interest. Once the crap hit the fan it picked up. I certainly don't regret listening to the series, but I felt there was a lot of filler material to finish it off.

great book

this is a really good book but has a few draw backs. I liked the narrator but I found the that sound effects reapply threw me off. the story is also really good. overall it's great, just the sound effects I found to be annoying.

what i was waiting for

The best in the series, makes up for the previous ones being comparably dry. The character development was far from stilted, the world building was consistently good. The lit rpg progression was original and gives that great rpg progression feel. Massively brings the whole series up a level.

Great stuff

Love the pacing in this book as it doesn't feel like the author is just writing for the sake of turning this into a cash cow. There's also a lot of depth here for those interested in not just the lit Rpg element but are also looking for a well written story.

Great start, grew tedious.

I'll keep it short. I dropped this series after book 3, here's why:

- Protag makes Batman look like a mass murderer. One of my biggest peeves is artificial conflict, and a lot of the conflict in this story arises because Ed refuses to kill. Anyone. Despite how cartoonish some of his enemies are.

- The litRPG elements are an afterthought. They're barely there and in three books, I'm not feeling any sense of progression in the character's power, despite the author telling me there is.

- Objectivity, the system in this book that stops people gaming the system is a horrible concept. Don't write a litRPG and immediately constrain the gamer fantasy of everyone reading.

- Finally, I got over the light vs dark thing real fast.

20 hours of fun & good voice acting

Lord Wraith is at it again, messing with the laws of magic gaining new fun minions and expanding his..... everything...

as a side note the two voice after for this book did a outstanding job.

jumping the shark and looking good doing it.

great book. I was discouraged after reading a few reviews for the third book but took a chance anyway. The writer did not let me down. The book has become less game more fantasy with each passing chapter and has come to not need the support of game mechanics but using them as accent marks. it's like telling a friend of an epic battle in an mmo, less a game review but an epic story. buy it, listen to it.. and beware dark pacts in darker places.

Top notch litRPG without a ton of stat reading

one of my favorite lit RPGs reasonable challenges plenty of politics and foreshadowing but dosen't spend half the book reading stats and skills.

Freaking amazing series.

Consistently surprised at the amazing detail and storytelling ability, psychological insight. My first litRPG series, and now I am hooked. The voice narration is hands down brilliant.
