Alvin had another rough week, but at least this time, he had Gothy with him. Travelling from Utah to Nevada, they were able to set up two more Settlements. Then they had to visit the world of Fey to rescue the kids of the Beatty, Nevada, Settlement. Just when things looked like they were going well, the Developers got involved. With the very rules of the game changing, Alvin found himself in a new position. Gothy pledged herself to him through the game system, leaving her collared and bound to obey his every whim.

The attempt at building a dark and borderline bad guy anti hero has become a corny cliche version of 50 Shades. All the masochism and dominance is really getting awkward not that it is terribly bad it's just that it's steadily growing in abundance to the point where it might just be the focus of the story now. I'm starting to wonder if his plan is to phase out the story line all together and just produce compilations of corny, cliche 'Im so dark and tough' lines followed by awkward dom-fantasys.

Felix would like nothing more than to take a vacation. A long one. One where he didn’t have to wake up every morning and worry over casualty lists for the day. Ever since he and the Legion had been forced to flee their headquarters four years previous, nothing had gone quite right. In fact, Felix and the Legion have been locked in a shadow war with enemies unknown. Ones with magic that could carve through their technology easily.

this writer has always woven wonderful stories under both his actual name and his other pen names. his characters have always been detailed, well-developed and likeable. And now the awesomeness of crossover has taken on all new heights. I've read (or listen to) all the books that are referenceed, and it is so seamless the way they all tie in. Whether he decided to tie these stories together after they were written or where they were always intended to be tied together is impossible to tell. Like I said, crossover has just taken on New heights!

his story was just as awesome as everything by these two authors except that it seems to cut off abruptly, as if they literally decided to make one book into two books and just cut it down the center. no epilogue no build-up no climax just suddenly and without warning... ended... and that was it. still a great installment of the shrouded World story none the less.

We need the next book, and we need it Yesterday, we will even settle for today, maybe we can stretch the hold over our need until tomorrow, But anything more than that and its taking too long to tell us what happens in this story. I'm sorry to be harsh with you but if you're gonna feed us this level of epic awesomeness in a story, then You can't leave us hanging. Write faster, Become Super-Author, GIVE US MORE !!! This is another wonderful book by Dakota Krout. The story Characters in world are beautifully written And developed, just like all these other books The author Vikas Adam does a fantastic job narrating once again. This is definitely a book for those who love fantasy, adventure, LitRPG or just hearing a good story.

In The Land: Predators, the Mist Village has harnessed its power. With core buildings, professional fighters, and now their own dungeon, the settlement is primed to grow into a kingdom of true power and magic. The path to power has not been without risk, however. The MistVillage has been noticed. Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice, and fanatical kobolds from the Depths all plot the village's destruction.

Like all of Aleron Kong's the land series this book is amazing it does not disappoint there were times when I had to pause the book because I was laughing so hard or had to take in what I just heard and nothing short of a stunning performance by Nick Podehl as always. I truly can't wait for the next one. and I loved the endings ... both of them lol the one that came before the audible thank you message at the end and the one that came after lol

I don't know what's going on with Mark Tufo but this story pulls you in just enough to come to a screeching halt as ut delivers over the top feminists platitudes (man bad, women good). most of these platitudes aren't even in reference to any of the characters, just generalized declarations that all women are always better than all men. either Mark tufo has caved to outside pressures from SJWs and Feminists or it's a secretly hidden "I'm sorry dear" letter to his wife overlaid on to the story. Either way it really breaks the story, all the rest of these books have been great but if this keeps up I'm not sure if I can keep following.

I'm not going to waste time giving you Nick Picks about this writing style you guys know what to expect from Michael Stephen Fuchs and you know what RC Bray going to deliver. what I will say is I'm sad that it's over, almost make me want to throw a childish tantrum to make him write more and that's the only bad part about the whole book it makes you want to throw a tantrum shouting and screaming more! more!

Gifted with meta-human powers, Tori Rivas kept away from the limelight, preferring to work as a thief in the shadows. But when she's captured trying to rob a vault that belongs to a secret guild of villains, she's offered a hard choice: prove she has what it takes to join them or be eliminated. Apprenticed to one of the world's most powerful (and supposedly dead) villains, she is thrust into a strange world where the lines that divide superheroes and criminals are more complex than they seem.

Its not often I come across a story that draws me in in such a way. This book is clean enough for kids and public but well written enough for adults to listen in and feel like a kid again, well written and clean enough that I'm not even embarrassed to say at 35 I wanted to be a kid, go outside and play out the story like a game the way kids do.
