    "Dungeon filler"

    While I definitely enjoyed the book, I can’t help but think that the majority of the book felt like a filler installment, as a lot of the book was dedicated to a pretty ”side-quest”-feeling dungeon, that they explored every inch of. Also hard to not be bothered by how the main character always just acts on a whim, not really consulting anyone, despite the many times those types of actions being big mistakes (which he admits and are ashamed of, but continues to act the same way)

    "Nick does a fantastic job!"

    Nick once again does a fantastic job of bringing the second instalment of this excellent LitRPG to life. I wasn't sure about audio books as I prefer to read, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it!

    "Awesome "

    I’ve been an avid fantasy reader for about 20 years “I’m only 29 so that’s a long time for me lol” I’ve honestly never come across this genre before . I stumbled across this author purely based on the fact that I’ve started listening to audio books while working and the narrator for these books “nick podehl” has become one of my favourite narrators whilst listening to some of the other work he’s been involved in. Can honestly say that these books have opened my eyes to a whole new genre of fantasy and that the author now has a fan for life. Great character building, great world building and a perfect mixture of humour and action that have had me chuckling to myself like a lunatic whilst listening. Also made a perfect choice in narrator. I’m nearly through book 4 and can’t wait to devour everything else the author has to offer .

    "More Chunks of Meaty world building and Leveling "

    loved it!
    it's just more of what you loved from book 1, with more in depth worldbuilding and questing, and a bunch of new spells and leveling up

    it has a even more Overlord feel when Richter is dealing with more then just his solo leveling

    "Sion and Rickter begin to properly kick ass!"

    Sion and Rickter are two of the best characters I’ve listened to in years, and undoubtedly the best in litrpg, the friendly banter as they grow and develop the most village and surrounding area is brilliant, treat yourself to this, you won’t regret it!

    "Keeps you wanting more!"

    Nick Podehl does an amazing job brining Aleron Kong's characters and world to life again making that just 5 more min before bed turn into hours. I continue to love the sarcastic humor between Richter and Sion. This book has it all video game / role playing game mechanics, amazing characters, dungeons, and monsters to kill.

    "expands upon the first exceptionally"

    Begins right where the first left off. The story picks up the pace dramatically.

    Richter develops his powers and his village in this installment. In addition, he learns of several looming threats in the distance.

    It never slows down and I love it.

    "I like the first book better"

    This book wasn't bad, a good portion of it was made up two battles, and it was nothing but frustrating for me to listen to. The main character was describing the battle going on around him without doing anything himself. He had obvious goals to complete, but in some cases after chapters go by of him describing what is happening around him, the battle ends with him running off into the mist to kill some of the leftovers, no details he just returns and the game-like interface explains the rewards he gets for completing the side quests. You have to assume... Some of the stupid mistakes he makes are obvious, I have no doubt anyone who reads or listens to the story will bang their own head. I feel the main character is smart but the writer for some reason allows him to step out of character for the added drama. I wasn't going to buy the next book, but I found myself wondering what happen next, Gawd! I'm hooked, much to my dismay. ARG! oh well, see you in the next one. :)

    I finished Listening to Forging earlier this week, so now I'm re-re-re-re-re-re-reading the rest of the series on E-book. Waiting oh so patiently while my Favorite M.D./Author speed writes my next prescription of The Land. Nick Podehl did an amazing job narrating.

    "Bring the rest of the series to Audible!"

    My only complaint is that the books are not longer. Nick does an amazing job bringing the character to life. The story keeps me wanting more. Plenty of laugh out loud moments. I really hope the rest of the series gets here faster.

    "Still loving it"

    Really enjoy this series. Read the books first as e-books and now I'm going back and listening to them as audio. Very much looking forward to the rest of the series coming to audible and the 7th book, which is coming out soon. Crossing my fingers that by the 8th book, ebook and audible version will release simultaneously. Also, the author Aleron Kong, really churns out the novels, so as a reader, you have confidence it won't be years in between releases. It's more like months. The main character is evolving nicely, but I'd love to see some more deeper relationships evolve for him. His relationship with Sion is great and you really feel that sense of camaraderie. Eventually you get the same with Terrod and Krom but I feel like the relationships with the females are a bit more superficial and not well fleshed out (mostly simple flirtation and so on). But the series appears to be setting up for a lengthy run of novels, so here's to hoping those will come. Here's hoping for some strong and prominent female characters.

    Nick Podehl continues to be an outstanding narrator with a great range of voices that he lends to the characters. He also just has an excellent feel for pacing as he reads the book. Can't recommend him as a narrator enough.

    I personally feel the series rewards my continued investment as a reader and honestly, that's what I'm looking for anytime I start a book.
