Summary

In search for the townspeople of Gatecross and his Core Power Guild, Fred and his friends wind up in the city of Allroads - where they find more than they bargained for. After successfully breaking them all out of prison using his special abilities and creating a small dungeon underneath the city, his activity unfortunately gained the attention of the elemental Dungeon Core factions surrounding the large valley where the city is located.

That’s because the city of Allroads is occupying the middle of what the Cores called a Convergence, an area of intense elemental concentration that produced an extraordinary amount of ambient Mana; those Convergences are protected and off-limits for any dungeons to possess, which is one of the reasons Fred gained the ire of the nearby Cores.

Or, it could be because he destroyed three of their own....

Regardless of the reason, Allroads is under siege, and Fred has to help defend the city from all seven of the elemental factions pressing against his territory border, prepare for potential invaders to his dungeon with the help of his Shards, and potentially figure out a way to save both species (Humans and Dungeon Cores) from extinction.

And he has to do all of that while convincing the Allroads Council not to execute him for bringing all of this trouble to their literal doorstep....

Contains LitRPG/GameLit elements such as statistics and leveling. No harems and no profanity.

Core Power!

Great continuation, this series seems to get better and better. This book is filled with twists and turns. I cant wait for the final book! The only downside is the wait for 5 to be released.

Another lovely volume of the series.

Loved this fourth volume, the narration is on point. Miles keeps doing a terrific job! There were less unexpected twists than in the previous books, but maybe it's because I'm getting to know the series and possible outcomes, can't wait till the next volume comes out though! Great job Jonathan!

Significant changes

Getting the obvious points out of the way first, this is book four in a series and as such would not be a good starting point for anyone considering this series, but in any case the first three are all highly entertaining listens and well worth picking up first.

This book did a good job overall when it came to offering the reader a varied range of action, both in and out of dungeons, while also delivering plenty of progression on both the character and personal level for the main cast. One area that also worked well in this book was the way the author spent some time developing the personalities of the other cores, so that they became less of a one-dimensional evil enemy, even though their actions (with one notable exception) did not change significantly overall.

The narrator gave a good performance overall with a good range of voices for the cast, I did find the make voices to be a stronger part of the performance, but do not agree with some of the negative comments made by some of the people reviewing the previous book that his female voices are bad.

Overall, this was a highly enjoyable listen as was clearly evidenced by the way I went through it in only a day and will unfortunately now have to wait for the fifth (or possibly 5th and 6th) book to be released to complete the series.
