Having survived the first wave of invading players, Oren now seeks to strengthen his clan. With the Breeder's Den destroyed and most of Goblin's Gorge's resources devoted to rebuilding, his best hope lies in creating an army of golems. But for that, he needs Viridium, a rare metal that can only be obtained from hobgoblin towns, where Oren and his clan of goblins are viewed as nothing more than potential slaves.

Dread Torwm has done his job, he has extracted his revenge, sort of. I mean I guess. lol
the ending was a bit odd ad the VI's plan comes tonfruituon andnthey explain everything. other than that detail it ended the way that was expected. but it was a great wife with excitement and killing of many travelers

For eons, conquering dungeons has been the most efficient way to become a strong adventurer. Although not everything is as straightforward as it seems. 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.

Ryker only had one goal in his life right now: Turn a certain adventuring guild into a flaming wreck while dancing merrily through the smoldering ruins. All for the chance to get back at a handful of people. It didn’t work out that way though. At all. He’d become the Count of Dungeon, made a hostage, married off to the false queen’s daughter against his will, and had his county made ground zero for a religious war. To top all that off, the Dark Lord of the North wants to see Ryker personally.

Despite awesome supernatural powers, loyal allies, and an attitude the size of Brooklyn, the odds are still stacked heavily against him. Bill Ryder must fulfill his destiny and save the world from the ancient terrors that threaten it - all while trying to work up the nerve to ask out the girl of his dreams.

If you want a fun, nerdy, violent, excitingand more authentic vampire storey, here you go!
Its everything other vampire books are not and then some.
Bill's a d&d playing nerd working for a software company when life goes sideways and he ends up a special kind of vampire. being aware of the cliche and taking a stab at it every chance he gets! he goes on an epic adventure to battle everything from ancient enemies to new ones with his buds.

Alex is dead. Dead and apparently with a one-way ticket to a place that only the worst of the worst go. All for a simple choice he made about a product his company owned. Damned for all time. Luckily for him, he’s about to be given a chance. Another choice to make. He can instead return to the land of the living, though his soul would belong to another. Except the world he’s being sent to isn’t the same one he came from. It’s not even a similar period in time, but from something long past in history. The dark ages.

I really enjoy that series, especailly with all the tie ins.
The jab at people named Felix is great especailly awesome lol
Undead armies, dragon kind, giant lightening bolts, elf killing, all these things make me happy.
and, we got our first exchange between Felix and Vince, the same way it happens in ssosh. we also get a bit of timeline line up.
ita a great build up to the next book and sets so much up for the future.
Really a great story, still a bit much on the sex descriptions for my taste, but great none the less.

In The Waste, every fantasy creature, fairytale demon, or mythological monster exists. From orcs, to neriads, ogres, trolls, wraiths, elves, harpies, and even beastmen. They all exist, and all despise humankind. In the ruins of the west and east coasts, new governments have arisen. With new jobs. Vince is a Ranger, a profession whose sole job duty is surviving in the waste, and taking missions from the Ranger Guild. Be it courier services, escorts, or simply exploring tombs and cities.

This ones another great Novel from the Author of Other Life
I'd love read or listened to Super sales in super heros. this is the story of Vince, Felix's half brother, sin of his uncle that went missing.
It's a great story and I love Vince, hes crazy violent and just makes his decisions.
Hes powerful, and feels the down trodden races, triumphing over the bigotry and hate of the world around him!
it had a bit more descriptive sex than I care for but overall the storey is great and sets up a series of books and tie ins with two other trilogies in the series, which is somthing I really enjoy.

Runner and company have safely left the city ahead of the siege. Completing their class promotions with barely any time to spare. Unfortunately Runner hasn't discovered the password he needs to begin the logoff process to save the 400,000 or so crewmates left alive in this game where dying truly means death.

I really enjoy this series, it's funny, creative and fun. it has heartful impacts and vicious punishments.
and Jacob gets what he deserves. people like him disgust me.
the true loss in the storey hits hard and true, right in the feels.
Nibbles is amazing, definatly looking forward to how that pans out in the next book.
Runner is dealing with to muchand refuses to stop, he runs on no matter what, hes the hero who leaps off the cliff, and I love it.
His tanks are awesome lol
