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.

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?

Richter and Sion are in a fight for their very lives. Their enemies are circling, and the powers they have awakened are barely under their control. Death and war are on their doorstep, but they have a simple message for the enemies of the Mist Village. "Kiss your loved ones goodbye. The Mist will claim you." A wonderful blend of humor and adventure, The Land: Alliances will transport you to the world of your dreams...and your nightmares.

What's that you say? You want more village growth? Well be careful where you stand, because the Mist Village just took a Viagra-Cialis sandwich, and there is a stiff breeze blowing! (I can make some more references if you're still not getting the point...did you see what I did there?)

Aleron Kong's number-one best-selling LitRPG saga continues in The Land: Swarm. The enemies of the Mist Village are moving, the storm clouds are gathering, what are Richter and Sion to do? Crush the game, that's what! More of everything you love in LitRPG: powerful items, epic battles, awesome quests, and in-depth world building! What happened to Elora? Where is the swarm? Did the rock giant make Richter jelly? What are the colonel's secret spices?

The time of hiding has passed. The Mist Village will make itself known. Goblins have invaded Richter’s lands. Though the first incursion has been defeated, the anger of Chaos Seed remains. Those who challenge Richter’s power will learn there is a reason all creatures fear the mist.... It is the home of monsters. For the first time, Richter takes the battle to his enemies. He will live up to his name, and the very Land will shake with this power.

It all started when infected bats bit a small group of humans and created what are now called vampires. Then, the male vampires knocked up some female humans, and the result was a gorgeous race of all male ash - superhuman freaks that had looks to kill. Charlie is the first female ash, aka unicorn of the Hive - the gated compound in Portland that the humans have designated to isolate vampires and ash from society.

Reviewed: 05-19-16

If there were not so much unnecessary cursing in this story it would have been in the Youth/Teen category. This story bored me to death! Don't want to offend but I have to be honest: this narrator is terrible. Every different voice she did was nearly exactly the same. She also not only mispronounces words but she also reads words that are totally incorrect. i.e. she says "line" instead of "lion" and this happens many times. You have to put the correct word in there yourself. She sounds 16 years old and that is the crowd for this story; except every other sentence has SO MUCH cursing, made up curse words even!, that I wouldn't recommend it to any teen. Will most definitely not purchase any sequels she has planned already. Won't listen to this narrator again either.
