This book reminded me of Hatchet and Enders Game, I give it props that the landscape was good and it got its happy ending, but it was definitely made for young adults so if your older like I am theirs not much depth to it for me at least.

I was a disappointed that their was only one short story for the Abhorsen series in this, though I did enjoy the Hellboy and Sherlock Homes short story's the most out of the other short story's. I'll make this clear I have never read anything but the Abhorsen series from this author, so I did not really get much backstory for the other story's and I really did not need them.
Overall I would say it's a good book to listen to.

Several questions have always plagued the minds of those who enter these mythical places of power: why are there so many monsters? Where do the amazing weaponry and heavy gold coins come from? Why does the very air fill with life-giving energies? Cal has all of the answers to these age-old questions, for a very simple reason. He is a Dungeon Heart.

Imagine for a moment that you are a Dragon. A creature of unimaginable power, unending intelligence and strength, and you've just woken from 10,000 years of slumber. Worse yet, you've awoken underneath a city: Boston, an alien and strange place that defies everything you've ever known. Your last memories are of primordial forests, erupting volcanoes sculpting a developing world, faeries, witches, vampires, krakens, and monsters that feared where you turned your eyes.

This book was surprisingly good, will most likely read again or rather listen to. I don't know if the science in this book is accurate or not though I kinda hope it is because some of it was fascinating.
