Summary

What would you do if you were the most powerful dungeon deity in the world and the bindings keeping you trapped within your dungeon were broken? Would you escape? Would you acquire a party of beautiful female minions? Would you use your new minions to conquer other dungeon deities, consume their magic, and grow even more powerful? Would you take over the world? Would you then take over the heavens and destroy the gods?

Yes, you would do all of the above.

I had higher hopes for this book.

I thought that this book would be about either a Dungeon Core, or a Dungeon Master, that finally breaks free from its bonds to finally wreak havok on the world.
What I found was something different.
And not in the good way.

An entity that claims that he is evil, but is nothing more but a grumpy grandpa in comparrison.
And the protagonist is naïve to boot.
Claims that he is centuries old but dosn't seem to recognise other entitys domains. Or use the knowledge that he should have, thanks to his age and claimed power.

The women that is around him is constantly rude to him. Instead of showing an ounce of his "attitude" from his time in the dungeon, he is patient with them.

I don't know if I want to continue this book series.

Disappointing

I’m not going to write five paragraphs just to tell you all of the problems I had with this book so I’m just going to write a list.

1. The main character is supposed to be this evil dungeon Lord that is seeking to destroy the heavens. He recruits 4 women to help him because of “reasons” and set out to conquer other dungeons. The problem I have with this is that the main character is not evil at all. Your minds me of my grandfather with evil voice. He is extremely nice to the women that he’s traveling with even though they are disrespectful to him. He is extremely naïve especially for someone that has lived for more than 1000 years. And he is extremely boring.

2. The way the book describes the story implies a harem but it’s more like a journey with a man and his grandchildren.

3. No world building at all. The first time they visit a town they sell their stuff and leave. They talk about staying a night but it never happens.

4. This book is extremely slow on the boring parts and really fast on the good parts.

No tention at all

As the title says really. After it's clear he's not gonna kill the girls, or replace one with a meat puppet, the tention in the book drops to zero fast. It becomes clear rapidly that nothing is really a match for him, not even other gods(diatys). The only reason the book isn't half as long is because the MC "allows" the gods of other dungeons to do their thing so he can "train" the girls.

The MCs morals are unclear as well. They kinda flip flop through the entire book. Going between caring about a "tragic" (predictable) backstory, and torchering and God, and a stupid dude. The reasoning for each action hits different spectrums each time he considers them. Not to mention he's a self-proclaimed "underdark" God. Sounds like a bad guy right? He certainly acts like it at times. Then you find out he was cast from the heavens because had sex with a mortal. One he absolutely loved. Who's bad? Who's good? Is there a middle ground? I don't know, it's hard to tell.

Ps. The voice actor is fine, but the voice they chose for the MC is.. well there's something about it that makes you subtlety not like the MC. Every other voice is fine, and some are genuinely heartwarming, like Carmony's. I recommend you listen to the preview before buying.

Weak main character development

I want to first say that I have enjoyed a lot of Eric Valls books. But this book was hard to get through. The basic premise is that a fallen God upon veiwing a few women decides to leave his dungeon from boredom and a want to help the women become better. But the entire book the fallen God does absolutely nothing. He basically just stands silent watching the women figure out everything. He doesn't help the women progress or teach them anything. It was frustrating reading this book, spending the whole time thinking how worthless the main character is. Again I enjoy Eric Valls work and look forward to more books from him. This book was rough though.

Not good

Save your credits or money. The plot is uninteresting just like the characters. There is no depth to either and it's only made worse by the narrator's disappointing performance. He's no Jeff Hayes that's for sure.

It's like a bad sitcom

The concept seems like it would be interesting but is ruined by the constant childlike bickering by the 4 female companions.

Failed to engage me

I love the premise of this book, but the writing is rigid and doesn't flow well. The narration seemed good but I just could finish the book due to its inability to engage me. I got through the first 1/3 of the book and had to stop.

Tall, dark, and overprotective?

Starts out with a dark intensity, but it disappears shorty... just kidding, the start was just a hint of the main character's power to protect that which is his, that which he refuses to lose.

Couldn't finish

Hoping that by leaving this review, further books by this pair will be removed from my suggestions.
