Summary

What do you do when the game resets around you? 

Just when Montana thought he had life in Vuldranni figured out, the rug is pulled out from under him. He's alone once again, but now he's in the crosshairs of the man who would be emperor, and a whole host of people are counting on Montana to provide a safe haven for them. 

Montana has one hope of actually completing his quest of forming a dukedom: he needs to bust Nikolai out of prison. 

A prison that no one has ever escaped from alive. 

A prison whose only exit is little more than rumor and probably doesn't even exist - through a sentient dungeon, hell-bent on causing torture, inflicting pain, and extracting the ultimate price: life.   

Montana and his hirðmen are down to their last chance. So they get themselves arrested and enter Osterstadt prison. Can the Good Guys do good by going bad?

Disappointed

Great start, but the author is an expert at ruining a great premise. The protagonist is retarded, his personality weak, it has not improved despite the many chances. A tip for the author, can you stop forcing things? You want the MC to be a muscle brain but you made it a retard with sudden amnesia strikes.

Another fun romp

Story, check. Fun characters, check. RPGlit, check. No harm, no sex scenes. All you have to worry about is all the frickin' cussing.

Holy Mob Balls

I typically get bored with the "typical" dungeon dive in litrpg stories so I will admit that I prejudged this episode of the good guys. I was delightfully surprised and intoxified by the spelunking that Montana got himself into, and I ain't even mad at the amount of F-bombs this time.

Seriously, I'm heading towards the finish line

I loved the dungeon itself, but the ending felt a bit rushed with a series of events happening so fast that I had a bit of whiplash and relistened to the last three chapters again just to see if I missed anything important.

On to #4!

This series is in my top 5 favorite LitRPG series!

But seriously, I'm loving the series and wishing the books were longer!

An enjoyable dungeon romp

Eric Ugland continues to deliver with the third iteration of the Good Guys series. I find I keep getting drawn into this series. Now onto the next book!

Not getting any more of my credits.

While I am truly enthralled with this series, I can’t justify spending another credit on it. The author/publisher has now three times released less than half an audiobook and charged full price... And it’s obvious at this point that this is a considered choice on their part.

In my previous review of book 2 I noted that it is within the publishers ability to release these audiobooks in volumes comprising 2 of the written titles. This is standard for the medium and is done regularly by plenty of other authors/publishers.

By releasing 3 half-story audiobooks in under 3 months it’s clear that there wasn’t any logistical reason for not bundling these books in publishers packs.

So while I do really enjoy this author’s work I’m done overpaying for it. I highly recommend that anyone who is interested in this series buy the first audiobook and then find other means of acquiring the rest of the releases. If we don’t send a message with our wallets it only encourages unscrupulous publishers and authors to reduce fantasy novels into serialized money grabs.

I'm out - Tired of only getting part of a story

While I did thoroughly enjoy the story I have 2 main objections that may cause me to not continue with any more from this series.

1. The whole thing with every decision the MC makes being a bad one but turning out to be amazing is getting repetitive. However this did not impede the actual story to the point where it was not enjoyable for the most part.
2. My biggest problem with this series so far is that each book could only be considered to be a quarter or at best a third of most other books. Especially if you take out the fluff of how long it takes to go through the MC's stats each time. Yes I would love to know what happens next, but I think I am done paying full price for each book when each one seems to progress the story arc like an episode of dragonball Z.

TLDR: The story is actually enjoyable for the most part, but it feels like they have cut the story into small chunks and are trying to sell each one off for the price of a full book. Which is sad because this could have been a series I got hooked on if I didn't feel like it was trying to rip me off.

This series started good and faceplants.

The constant shitting on the MC is getting old. He does some stupid shit, needed for growth blah blah. the constant verbal abuse makes me think the author is a self hating depressed loner.
World building is cool, narration is great.

The dungeon was boring.

There really wasn't any growth during the dungeon chapters. You can skip to the end of those chapters and get everything you need to hear for the actual story. He doesn't even check his levels until 2 chapters later anyways. It was just a way to make him even more OP.
