Adventuring is a costly affair, and while the tolls are often paid in blood, gold can drain away just as quickly. The party's trek out of Solium and across the lands of Alcatham has left them with only a handful of gold between them. Fortunately, they have drawn near Camnarael, Alcatham's capital, where all manner of quests - and rewards - await. But all is not as expected in the capital. Unusual occurrences have been happening throughout Camnarael: figures in the shadows making unsavory bargains, attackers harassing innocent parishioners, and adventurers from all over the land gathering to partake in a Grand Quest offered by the royal family. Most curious of all are the rumors that speak of a strange artifact serving as the reward for this rare and legendary quest...an artifact that sounds just a bit too familiar to the former NPCs.

THE QUEST THE CHARACTERS ALL OF IT
ALL OF THEM BUT I'M FALLING FOR THISTLE
ALL OF IT
WHEN'S THE NEXT!!!!!!!!!
HOW MANY PIECES OF THE BRIDGE ARE THERE? WHAT'S WITH GABBY'S AX? WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO RUSSEL AND HIS PARTY? AND WHO IN THE HELL IS BROKEN BRIDGE PUBLISHING? N*E*E*D T*O K*N*O*W!!!!~!~!~!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unlike most litrpg's based on video games and where players have levels and the ability to have stuff show up in their line of vision, this series is about table top rpg's, and the main characters aren't humans from earth, nor do they have levels or anything special other that a strong companionship and the will to survive. I like how this book dives a little deeper into the bridge and the characters even get equipment upgrades. Good story.
Looking forward to the next book. This series continues to entertain. Enjoying the author bringing old characters back into the story.
I love the way I can relate.
This series so far has been most excellent!
Made for nerds!
This series is amazing! I love it. If you ever have played a table top rpg you can relate.
This series continues to feature a nice mix of humor and drama. I'm very interested in where the story will go from here and look forward to the next volume. The reader also does an admirable job with every character, and they are easy to keep track of. All in all if you liked the first two I expect you will continue to be pleased.
"Great fun! A must for any D&D fan"
I bought the first book knowing nothing about it or Drew Hayes, thinking it would be some poor D&D fan-fiction. i was SO wrong.
I loved all 3 books and really hope there's more coming!
"Absolutely brilliant story and very well performed"
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and found it to be a wonderful introduction to Drew Hayes. His style of writing is fantastic and I am thoroughly looking forward to reading (and listening to) even more of his books. I hope he writes more of the Spells, Swords and Stealth series as it is absolutely awesome!!!!
"Well worth the the time."
After the enjoyable, but perhaps somewhat slow, second book in the series, Going Rogue picks up the pace - and keeps it throughout - despite being considerably longer. Longer perhaps, but it still seemed to finish all too soon.
As expected the characters are developed, and all three groups are given the limelight. If you've been reading the series thus far, you're unlikely be be reading a review of this installment (as you'll simply have just bought it!) but in the interests of not giving away any spoilers, the forces behind Broken Bridge Publishing continue to work their mysterious plan. Still, I have no idea what that plan is, but with more pieces of the bridge "in play" the pace - and stakes - are increasing.
Now I just need to find another series to immerse myself in until book 4 is released.
"An improving series!"
Going Rouge builds on the world created in books 1 & 2, keeping the elements I enjoyed the most, however in Book 3 Drew really takes the time to develop the storyline with more care. Its almost as if he wrote books 1 & 2 as a sideline distraction, then thought 'Oh, these aren't actually too bad, I'll give book 3 a proper go :)
There's a fair few LitRPG books out now, try Alterworld series by D. Rus (the crazy Ivan as I like to think of him :) or search for Cosimo Yap, like I will be doing if he doesn't hurry up with book 2 of ''The GAM3'' Grrrrr...
Roger Wayne (apart from sounding like he should be narrating Westerns :) isn't my favourite reader. That being said, he is good enough that at no point did he distract from the fun of the story, sometimes, that's all a listener can ask for.
Don't expect high literature, its a book with dragons and half Orcs for Pete's sake. It is a decent romp through the genre and a bit of escapist fun.
The length of the books are increasing and they are much the better for it, looking forward to the next installment :)
"Devoured, need the next now"
Have never preordered a book until now. You already know if you're invested in this series. I look forward to the next
I have grown to love this series. I hope there is a 4th book, as there are still unanswered questions
