Publisher's Summary

Powerful necromancers are on the move, and Cal is caught in the crossfire. Without his faithful Wisp, Dani, Cal's mind slips, and he begins creating traps and monsters that go against his already loose morals. After a direct threat from an unexpected force causes Cal's mind to stabilize, he throws all of his resources into keeping his thoughts clear while he funds searches for his lost companion. When others fail him again and again, Cal decides to take matters into his own hands.

Deadly occurrences remind Dale that no matter how well he does in his small community, he is still considered a weakling in the greater world. Though he continues his physical and mental training, he decides to gain strength by any means necessary...even if these decisions are killing him.

Fantastic

Just a fantastic experience from dungeon born to calamity. I have listened to and read at least 80 fantasy books. None are as memorable and surprising as this series. Astounding work from both writer and narrator.

Dwarf erections that are just to damn funny.

Loved it. Kept picking it up outside my normal listening windows while driving. Goblin bob is def the best Bob in any universe and the voice work is stunningly fun to listen to. Also... Dwarf boners. Twice. I laughed both times. (if you don't read that and see that I find this book good enough to suggest it on that joke alone then... Read it anyways.)

Such a good series!

I have had this series for about 2 months now. I've listened to it start to finish 3 times. It is one of my favorite series and I never get tired of it. I am an avid Dungeons and Dragons player/DM and this is right up my alley.

The author did an amazing job and I love all the characters (Hans is my favorite though). I love the puns and the suspense and the growth of the characters. I hope he continues this series and can't wait to listen to more of it.

Vikas Adam has become one of my favorite Narrators as well. His performance with this series is incredible. I enjoy the voices and the emotion he has. Sometimes, it can give you chills.

I'm in love with this series and I don't think I'll ever get tired of listening to it. Thank you Dakota and Vikas for a wonderful story!!

Brilliant plot and characters

I've read the other two books in the series and loved those as well. The character development is realistic, but still dynamic. Some authors miss the idea that characters need regression as well as progression in character development, but Dakota Krout delivers believable personality growth for each of his characters. I especially liked Tom's development, and could see a deeper side of him in this book. The main characters are likeable, but it's the relationships of the supporting characters and their distinct nuance behaviors, delivered in both the narration and the writing, that gives a feeling of full emersion to the reader. Thanks for another great one, Dakota.

Was pretty great but ...

Loved the book up until the ending ..twist? It just felt so weirdly out of place and a bit forced. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it ended differently. Honestly it hardly makes much sense to me. The only thing that went through my mind afterwards was ..why?

I enjoyed the experience overall however.

Great performance though. Narrator is amazing.

Satisfying conclusion to the book 2-3 story arch

I also greatly enjoyed this book. I'm glad that book 3 was out when I ended book 2 because it continues the main story arch of book 2 and wraps it up nicely. I can't wait for book 4 and am happy we didn't get a huge cliffhanger (though still loose ends!) that book 2 gave us. Narration by Vikas Adam continues to be stellar in this book!

If you enjoyed book 1-2 you must listen to or read book 3! This book is more of the same and continues the world and character development I loved in the first 2.

A disappointing conclusion

What would have made Dungeon Calamity better?

The pacing dragged on at the beginning and felt rushed at the end. The author used not one but two separate Deus ex machina, one to partly undo the ending of book two and one to reach the conclusion he wanted even though it did not make a bit of sense.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Perhaps The Dictator's Handbook, something non-fiction to cleans my mental palate.

Did Vikas Adam do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I did not have trouble telling the characters apart, but I found some of their voices to be quite annoying and grating. Danny in particular was unpleasant for me.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I enjoyed the first book in the series. The second book was fine until the end, where Cal was rendered a non character, a difficult place to write from unless you red line that aspect immediately.

A perfect end to the series

I loved this series of books. The characters are funny and thrilling. The performance makes it easy to understand who is talking with distinct voice changes for the many characters.

A suitable twist to a rollercoaster emotional ride in the only dungeon delve books I’m aware of told from the point of the dungeon itself.

Amazing and a must for fantasy / d&d fans

Wonderful series

Where does Dungeon Calamity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved these books and put them up there with bobiverse books, one of my all time favorite book series .

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the characters they are funny, relatable and possibly sociopathic mixed with just a sprinkle a slap stick homour!

What does Vikas Adam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Such a lively narration clear definition between characters, sounded like he enjoyed the book also.

Any additional comments?

Do give this current trilogy a try. I can not wait for book four

One of the best series I’ve listened to!

I have listen to multiple books in this app and I can say this is by far one of the most enjoyable I’ve ever listened to, I was so excited when this third book was released and hopefully I will see much more from Dakota , also i give full probs to the choice of voice actor each and every sentence had me on the edge of wanting more +++++

Brilliant twist that leaves you begging for more.

The divine dungeon series for me was a slow starting epic that has rewarded my perseverance. Dungeon Calamity specifically seems to be the result of what appears to be some damn well thought out planning by Dakota. Building a world that you can lose yourself in. I'm so excited for the story to continue !

Vikas Adam does an amazing job narrating again. I’m always surprised by how well Dakota Krout tops himself after each book. Filled with a wonderful story and hilarious puns. A must read.
