Summary

A private server. A digital playground. An alliance of the world's most sadistic, most depraved minds. A place to bring their prey, to hone their skills.

Kaiju: Battlefield Surgeon. Survival horror. One of the most brutal, most terrifying full-immersion games ever made. A place where fantasy characters such as elves and dwarves clash with technology, where giant monsters roam the hills, entrusted with protecting the gates of heaven from the demons who would tear it all down.

A game where one plays the last of the battlefield surgeons: a healer tasked with keeping the behemoths alive at all costs.

But on this server, they don't care about the game. That's not why they're here. They've come because of the game's most unique feature: full pain. Realistic anatomy. The ability to bring their victims well beyond the body's normal breaking point. And most importantly, the ability to bring them back and do it all over again.

Trapped in a bloody, merciless nightmare, Duke only has one goal: to survive. And in order to survive, he must play the game. He must win the game. And to do that, he must become the most cruel, most ruthless monster of them all.

This is too much. This... is too much.

This book goes to some really dark places. It's a good book, hence the five stars but...

I would not recommend it to someone else. Mainly because that person might think there was something wrong with me.

But I guess I liked it?

It is well written.

Its truly horror, it fits firmly in that square.

This book is a horror litrpg book that delves into the mines and play ground of terrible people (understatement). The main character gets trapped in a what I can only describe as a hellhole. Thus in this hellhole he has to suffer through much (understatement) to find away out of the game. He suffers continual physical and psychological throughout the book.

I have to say it's well written and well preformed; and Joe deserves a medal (understatement).

Personally, I dislike horror, however the author's writing is always interesting so I gave it a try. He wrote it well and that makes me worry about him.

If your into horror and all its associate trigger warnings this book is for you, if your like me curious and of strong constitution, I'll say perhaps. If the throught of blood and it's associate fluid make you faint this book is not for you.(understatement)

really gorey gross goodness

I recommend it if you can handle heavy gore.
the in game mechanics are super interesting and the story, in between description of very gross torture and otherwise disturbing content, is quite thrilling with good twist in turns as the main character gets more corrupt

Not for the faint of heart or weak of mind.

Dominion of Blades and Grinding had a baby. Oddly enough the baby looks like your first born child. Weird. Then Matt Dinniman lifted that wailing infant new to the world and full of promise and surgically impanted a flamethrower on one arm a harpoon cannon on the other and replaced the legs with chainsaws. Then he replaced the baby's mouth with a tree mulcher and opened your skull and dropped it in there slapped it closed, stappled it down, with no anesthesia. Your cries of torment are now Matt's ring tone.

If this bothers you then don't even think about spending the credit to listen to this book because you aint ready. If this sounds like a good time, then don't hesitate give this book a listen. Also you are my type of people. Love this book just like all of Matt's works on Audible. HE never disappoints NEVER!!!

A dark, gritty story, and a man forced to survive.

Well written book with a dark and gritty atmosphere. You can tell the author put a lot of time and effort into this 15 hour length audiobook.

Truly Exceptional Horror GameLit

I snagged this just out of having a spare credit and a wild hair for something different.

Boy, was I shocked.

This was a real treat, and my only complaint is that there isn't more of it! The feelings of despair make themselves at home in your chest, and every chapter brings more to the story. The slowly unraveling mysteries, twists, and turns really kept me hooked.

I look forward to reading more from Matt Dinniman having now experienced his style. The dialog felt genuine, the thoughts of the MC were well portrayed, and the descriptions had the perfect balance of detail and comprehension.

I highly recommend giving this a listen if you're on the fence.

An amazing horrible amazing book

Kaiju is the most intense book I've read in years. It's disturbing and enthralling. It even brought out a couple of tears at one point, which is not usual for me. It's not for the faint hearted. For good or bad it's going to stay with me for a long time.

great story meh ending

i loved this book until the last 15 min of it. how the thing ends is just such a tone shift. it goes from dark but semi realistic to a totally grim dark story

A CUT above!

As a fan of both the author and the narrator, this was a real treat to listen to. I found the book supremely creative. It has all the fun game-lit elements, but a really unique setting and characters. A master class in world building. Dark subject matter too - pretty visceral at times. At other times, plenty of just plain viscera!
Joe Hempel's performance is tops. He disappears right into the story - something he's uniquely good at.
This one's a must for any fan of the genre.
