Summary

Threadbare has not had a very good time of it recently. His little girl has been taken from him, and he must travel the kingdom, finding allies old and new, living and dead, to help him rescue Celia.

Fortunately, he's got a voice now and access to all those fun skills he couldn't before use. He may only be a very small teddy bear, but he's got the persistence to plow through dungeons of rascally raccoon monsters, the wiles to turn a town full of undead on its ear, and the sanity to survive an encounter with a mediocre old one.

However, Threadbare's little girl is growing up now, and her own path is hard and brutal. Will she even have a use for her old teddy bear when they meet again? Will they both survive the encounter?

Warning: Contains profanity, violence, and a creepy villain who likes tentacles way too much.

GOOD BOOK

I have over 300 audible titles and I have to say that the narration and performance of this book is one of the best I've heard. It's a compelling universe with a great story and awesome characters

Another fantastic entry to the series!

This book series really has come into it's own with this book. The world opens up to the teddy bear known as Threadbare as he made himself a mouth in order to speak and use his jobs. The writing was very fluid, never felt halting or odd, and every once in a while there are references thrown in that have gotten a groan of laughter more than once. I cannot wait for the continuation of this series!

got a lot darker in this one and maybe weirder

the move from a some what whimsical fantasy to a darker adventure fantasy is in full effect. still fun but there's a definite tonal shift.

Great Second Book

Continues on just where the first book left off and remains amazing the whole way through. All of the characters were able to hold my attention and leave me wanting more of their exciting adventures and group dynamic. Loved all the creative thought and fun that was put into the skills of the characters and the different settings. Can’t wait for the next book.

A step down from book 1, but ok

I felt this book took a step down from the first book. Part of this feeling comes from the realization that the novelty has worn off. Its still funny here and there. It still has some intrigue with the king, the demon, the daughter, and the bear, but leveling up and new skills became old....which is honestly my main complaint with many books in the genre. I understand this is litRPG, but I don't need to get hammered with stats(...and in this case, all stats the character has) every 10mins. Once every 2 hours would be nice....or when something significant happens....otherwise, it just feels like a 10 year old trying to fill out a 10-page essay for homework.

Can I recommend? If you like the first, this is ok and continues the story...so ok, I can recommend.

Sweet book/ mixed feelings about narrator

The book was beautiful hands down.
The narrator was bad with non main character voices

Love me some Threadbare and friends

Great protagonist, nice twists, fun pop culture references, great narrator... just great all around. Recommended if you like your fantasy with a nice dose of humor.

more grown up than the first installment

the thought processes of the main character have evolved and reflects in conversation and storytelling in the book. once again a wonderful addition into the litrpg genre.
minor spoiler of sorts

I think I can see the twist coming since the first book and the second is just confirming it 01001101001001001000011010101010111011

Such a good read.

Full of mind blowing plot twists that keep upping the stakes in a series about a teddy bear golem that is more than it appears.
