Publisher's Summary

Wynne might have been human once. It's hard to say.

Now he's a bunker core, a nanomachine controller responsible for an entire complex.

Of course, the place is a bit wrecked. And the world outside is in ruins. And he's pretty sure that whoever put him here is going to come looking for him at some point. And then there's the raiders....

Bunker Core is dungeon core, post-apocalyptic style. Come for the mutants, stay for the dystopian adventure!

I was impressed :)

I love the dungeon core series, and I do love modern and future world's tech. I will continue with this series for sure.

Not bad, could be longer

Narration was good, story could have been longer. Not a harem book and was fresh.

DC Done Right: Easily my Favorite in the Subgenre

Let me just first say that Dungeon Core LITRPG is my favorite LITRPG. Pros of this story: *No "I'm stuck in a game and I miss my family." BS. *No "I just shot 50 people and set two hospitals on fire to stare down the bad guy, but I will not kill him because that would be unethical!" BS *The MC is both competent and a pragmatist, and a good "person" when he can be. This is pleasant. *I really liked the universe with DC-on-DC politics overlaying the typical political forces. *I really liked how even the MC's allies were self-interested and slightly manipulative within the larger mutual goals. *Conflict resolution was largely handled with out-of-the-box thinking rather than the usual suspects: Luck and OP stats. *The action always seemed to escalate. *Having the MC learn the UI during battle was expertly done. *We got to find out more and more about the MC in what I thought felt entirely organic and natural. *I really liked the military background of the MC. *The "special facility" (no spoilers) to the east really piqued my interest. *Minimal digression from the DC narrative. It's there, and there' were perhaps about 8 minutes I thought could have been edited out, but it was like 95%+ on track. Cons: *I didn't care for some of the jokes between characters, but I also don't care for many things that many people like. It's saving grace for me was that the intended characters responded to it as though they liked it. So, it became just a quirk of the characters. I don't need to like the television show Seinfield for millions of other people to like it. *The book is almost too ambitious. I enjoyed this book about as much as I enjoyed the first time I watched Episode 4 of Star Wars. So, it's almost going to be a shame if this ends up being a stand-alone story in the same way that Episode 4 would somehow be diminished without episodes 5 & 6. From a writing perspective, I'm trusting that Seiple has a tight and refined outline put together. A story like this could shake to pieces like a diesel engine running on alcohol. The biggest challenge in my mind is that although the MC is demonstrably wily, how will he react when he has a chance to breathe and take the initiative? Dungeon Core books are a new and experimental subgenre. They don't have standardized set-piece scenes yet, and --if not done properly-- reading about grinding levels can be even more boring than grinding said levels. It is not easy to pull this sort of thing off. Done right, Dungeon Core LITRPG is a frontier in fiction, and this book is easily my favorite in the subgenre. Thank you Seiple!

A Diamond Sir

Utterly enjoyed the entirety of the book, the book was very creative and I could feel the story playing out and lost a whole night of sleep simply because I just had to know more. I thanked god it ended because I couldn't pry myself away from it, but sad that I have to wait for more. I will be buying the next book asap and looking forward to the rest of the adventures to come. Thank you for this diamond, there have been few books that I can find and relax while hearing a well written story. was very happy with the narrator, well done.

awesome take on post apoc dungeons

I like that there are other cores for the MC to worry about. there is perspective on every group which gives more info on the world. interesting secondary charcters. I would say more but i fear spoiling such a good story.

Amazing, entertaining

Its a good, exceptionally entertaining dungeon core litrpg. Nothing else really to say about it. I was engrossed non-stop. Its a bit on the short side but as there is no noticable filler, it actually has more content than most litrpg books. #dungeon_core #stronghold_rpg #base_building

Excellent Sci-Fi Dungeon Core

Honestly, this is the best thought out dungeon core books I've read so far. It is pure sci-fi with some good world mystery elements to it. It takes a much more serious tone than the boistrous murder-happy themes usually present in the genre (though there is some of that, but the book takes a more antagonistic approach to the pixie/AI foil, so there isn't the same back and forth there), and the reasons for the "rules" and invasions are much more plausible to me. It is much like Andrew Seiple's other series in that it pokes fun at the originating genres while not actually breaking the 4th wall, making the humor a little more subtle. Overall, quite enjoyable, and I will definitely be getting the next one when it is out!

Post Apocalyptic-ish But Lighthearted

Wow, wasn't sure what this was going to be, the picture looks like D&D but the description doesn't match. If you liked the Bobaverse then give this a whirl, well written with an easy pace and excellently narrated.

narrator excellent and story only improves it

I love the use of what one can only describe to be game theory as a means to help with the heavy lifting of restrictions and what not. The main character we'r introduced to is fasinating and i've come to want to listen more and more, a vicious cycle, but one i was all too happy to induldge in. But as i finish the book, i can only shudder and i ask. "When will the next one be out"

Refreshing take on dungeon cord genre

Good first book looking forward to seeing where the series is taken. Apocalypse AI battles are a lot more interesting than I thought they would and want more.

The story is scattered, try to find it.

Not enough content to enjoy the book, I personally have seen alot of the same elements elsewhere and I couldnt really put myself in the shoes of the MC. amnesia is not my favorite storytelling element. The story is split between characters so much so, when you look at characters you realise that they are defined by their character traits and stereotypes.
