Summary

Find a dungeon.

Build defenses.

Fight the monster that comes....

Kai is finally becoming the hero he's always dreamed of. As the enemy pursues, he's forced to accept his complicated identity and the power that comes with his blood.

Rhona can endure a blow to her pride. But when that blow comes from the vile Hastings, she has to strive to match his savagery and save her friends.

Ban discovers the ultimate prize for an Earth Core. Secrets, magic, and an incredible housewarming gift can be attained in an ancient keep once home to his ancestors. But can he defend the territory he's taken?

Listen to The Guild Core's second installment, where our band of heroes endures to restore the world to an age of dragons, heroes, and honor.

The Guild Core 2 is a novel by TJ Reynolds Fantasy LitRPG author of Eternal Online books one through three. The Guild Core was inspired by the Divine Dungeon series, the Wheel of Time, and classic films like The Labyrinth and The Neverending Story.

This story takes place in an epic-fantasy world governed by gaming mechanics. It contains light to moderate LitRPG, gamelit, cultivation, and dungeon core elements. Features realistic violence, three MC POVs, and more than a few quaint jokes. Language and adult content is appropriate for teen listeners.

book 2 is well done, if trying too much at times

Liked the book and characters and story develop well, but it feels the author tries too hard to set up the next enemy instead of fleshing out the current one. interesting in it's own right, just too bad that the original villain just sort of fell apart after being set up as such an over-powered enemy.

Rhona's Side Quest

IMO the author makes a poor choice of treating Rhona as if this is her story. Her chapters felt skippable and I skipped through alot of them which is like 50%+ of the book. I picked up this book for a dungeon core experience. If she's not teamed up with Kai and Ban, I really don't care what she's doing on her side quest because she's not a dungeon core. Could a better author pull it off, maybe. The story pulls together at the end, but so many wasted chapters. I would rate this 4.4 at best for being unfocused in a genre full of better written dungeon core themed stories. I'll still grab the next one based on the redeeming final sequence as well as Kai's and Ban's chapters being entertaining.

a worthy successor

I adored the first book and as the title says, this one lives up to the promises of the original.
Bran and Kai grow as a dragon/earthcore duo as does our favourite Rona in both as a character and as a monk.
on top of that, the world grows as we learn more and the plot thickens :)

A great story read well

This was every bit as good as the first book, even though the tone is a but more serious. It is still fun and doesn't get too dark or grim, but there are definitely some heavy moments. These moments lead to solid character development and are handled very well by both the writer and narrator. I plan to start book three as soon as I finish writing this!

I am loving this series!!💜

TJ Reynolds is a wonderful author. First, I love the way he’s written with 3 POV’s in this series. Second, the pace is set so that it’s easy to follow and feel like you’re on the journey with these characters. I even catch myself cringing when they describe a new minion or trap created be Bancroft. The pairing of TJ Reynolds and narrator Steve Campbell makes it even better. Steve seamlessly switches from each character giving them life. Each one has their own unique personalities and accents, and he makes it easy to distinguish each character. In addition, he allows you to feel each character and their emotions, whether it’s excitement, anger or sorrow. There’s some more exciting adventures coming and I can’t wait to read/listen to book 3 to see what’s in store for us. This is book 2 with an HEA but the story continues. I highly recommend this book/series.

Really good

I’m probably not the only one that Goes into the second book In a series worried that it will not be as good as the first one. It was not a problem here, I love this one more thin the first one. The writing is great once you start you don’t want to stop and Steve came and did an amazing job narrating, He’s a Chamaeleon

Better than the first!

I wasnt a big fan of how slowly the MC was maturing in the first installment but this book has attuned me to the authors pacing and Im thouroughly satisfied with how events turn out. Stats and skills are quickly explained and easily understood, as he does a great job of compressing this info without becoming repetitive. Lots of fun suprises to be had. Narration is still amazing. No complaints. Cant wait to devour book 3.

Still Working it

Plot continues to develop. I am impressed. Narrarator also does great. Only downside is that it feels like Kai is taking forever to move from child to man.

Rediculously good

This book is so good! If you love a book with adventure, magic, a budding romance (maybe), and a dungeon core who kicks butt and takes names, then this book is for you. I only gave 5 stars because it wouldn’t let me give more!
