Summary

The second captivating installment of Aleron Kong's Chaos Seeds series.

"We are life takers and heartbreakers," Richter shouted. "Let's go!"

Richter and Sion are at it again! Even more of what you loved in the first book. Leveling, world building, awesome items, and what's that you say? Sure! Why not? What's a little necrophilia between friends?

Join your favorite Chaos Seed as he answers the call of adventure and deals with the invaders, greedy dwarves, and a wood elf that keeps telling him he has a pretty mouth. Welcome back, my friends!

Welcome back...to The Land.

Great audio

The story is amazing and have read the book several times, the audio is only made better by the great work from Nick Podehl. Very pleasant to listen and makes long drives much more bearable.

excellent

Took some getting used to with the stats and other bits but now it has me invested. The likeable characters who all have depth and their own back stories have you wanting them to do well.

Got to be done!

I’m working my way through the series for about the tenth time, and just realised I hadn’t left a review on this book! Sacrilege! If you’ve not listened to /read The Land yet, then get your act together! Get started on the first book, founding as fast as you can!

Interesting take on fantasy

The concept of this series is great and doesn’t take long to get in to. The main character is witty and with a small hint of arrogance without getting annoying.
By one gripe is that the narrator mis-pronounces a number of words which just got irritating towards the end.

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.

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.

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.

Just as amazing as the first.

This book is the apt continuation of the story of Lord Richter, the Chaos Seed.

Truly hooked.

I thoroughly enjoy most books read by Podehl but have to say I can’t stop listening to this series. Truly find the story interesting and the voices complimentary to characters as I see them in my imagination. Thanks for the hours of entertainment.
