Publisher's Summary

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.

The smoldering ruins of Dungeon have been cleared, the patterns reset, and Ryker has a task that is more than likely too much for him.

Hold Dungeon, and give Lauren, the rightful queen, some breathing room.

Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

Just stop reading the series at this point.

Ok, so I don't mind harem books. But Reason please. MC meets several women and because he had 3 conversations with them and "was nice" they get married. more than 70% of this book is the MC just stating " I Love you and I will do anything for you" and then the women melt and agree to marry him. No reason other than that. The parts of the book that weren't bad harem was good but then some stupid cheesy line comes up and you just want to vomit. So much potential ruined because of too much bad reasonless harem.

Now I miss the whiny wizard voice.

I'm not saying it didn't have to grow on me first.
Another excellent book in the ongoing Arand multiverse. I'm having some suspicions on who the Lord of the North is based on those resurrection comments too...

Great sequel that leaves me wanting the next one!

Absolutely loved it. Cannot believe how it ties into Otherlife, SSoSH and Wild Wastes. Cannot wait for book 3 now, as well as the continuations to the other series.

Love the author, hate this book.

I've enjoyed this Author's other books quite a bit, listening to them several times, even the first book in this series. This one started off pretty well, but there was a cringiness building over time that grated on my nerves and finally after the 8th hour of this book, I couldn't do it anymore.

There was a sincere hope that the story would outweigh the cringiness of the lovey-dovey, smoochy-woochy harem elements that just became too overbearing, but it didn't. I knew from the first book that there would he harem stuff in here and that was fine, but it takes over and the story is the backseat to a harem romance novel.

Sorry Will, I really tried.

Great read

Great world and good action. They should change Ryder's name to Erection. Great world but the characters are always turned on in life or death situations. Additionally this dude is apparently married to something like 10 women that somehow get along and all deeply love him? Seriously? How about introducing another male character? It's ok. Ryder doesn't need to sleep with and marry every female character. Ryder spends 90% of his time having sex with all his wives and managing their emotions. I don't know how this guy can walk.

awesome as always

this book was amazing as all of Williams books are, the only thing that I had a problem with was that there was A LOT of eye roll moments, not in a bad way, just a lot of love words and compliments to the one another, like I said nothing bad, I just wanted more action and combat.

No longer a fan of his work, I've finally given up

William D Arand's work has been an interesting piece of work. He was the only one of the few harem based authors I enjoyed reading. Why? his way of making an actual story fit alongside with character progression. Story's were entertaining and the characters felt like they were developing at a steady pace.

today I learned that William D Arand has lost the ability to write a good book.

I'll admit here, I only managed to listen to roughly to an hour and ten minutes before quitting entirely and here's why.

In the previous book and start of the second book(Spoilers from here on out), the protagonist had essentially just confessed to a number of things. Mainly: Being magically bound to a dungeon, sleeping with multiple women, betraying the false queen - to his wives.

The two wives, Diane and Adele felt obviously betrayed by this, and rightfully so. so what happens? "Oh we forgive you this time, but don't do it again! now let's get down and dirty."

Wat.

you. had. a. perfect. opportunity. for. character. development. and. you. didn't. take. it?

ok, so maybe you missed out here but we've still got roughly 13 hours of story left and we left on a war between two religions and the mysterious 'dark king of the north' has appeared. what happens next.

sex. just sex and constant mentioning that the protagonist is perfect. I'm not joking here, from getting "groomed" by a minotaur then repairing her with a simple spell. To sleeping with a hobgoblin after convincing her that her insecurities aren't that much of a deal. To almost sleeping with a fairy after brushing off a fairly IMPORTANT part of the dungeon!

we're an hour in an I'm desperate for some actual story progression and FINALLY! the protagonist is starting to develop an army and preparing to defend the rightful queen. For some time the protagonist and three of his love interests are actually trying to do something productive!

and the Mino the minotaur is trying to "groom" him again... COME ON!

And right here is when I quit, in the middle of this specific moment one minor thing popped into this scene that made me realise so much about why William D Arand won't improve.

during the "grooming" session Mino mentions that the protagonist hasn't got a "leaders voice". ok? why does that matter? The protagonist uses a magic spell and "ta da!" he has a Heroic voice.

Not a SINGLE time has his voice been mentioned as an issue in any circumstances throughout the story and suddenly we're changing it!? And I GENUINELY believe that this was written here because William didn't like the sound of the protagonists voice by Andrea Parsneau. Sure it wasn't the best voice in the world but really!? Are you that upset over a character having a slightly geeky voice? and then it hit me. The protagonist no direct flaws- and before you say "he can only cast a few spells." tell me this, when has that "flaw" been an actual problem in the book? has he tried to kill someone, only to run out of spells? tried to save someone's life but ran out of spells? no we only know it's the reason that he was kicked from the adventurers guild.

I get OP characters but even they have flaws. several books have done OP characters. a perfect example is Rezkin from Kel Kade's series "dark tidings". A character who is a master assassin, knows how to manipulate people but lacks common sense. women try to seduce him and he doesn't know what love is! That is a character that is OP but FLAWED!

There are probably more thing's that I could pick up on if I read the whole book like how there will be another heroine (s) that will jump into the protagonists bed, because why not? but instead I'll end with a quote that my English teacher taught me when I was in school.

"a flawless character, is a boring character."

A great continuation of the series

The story continues to move in interesting ways. The relationships are interesting and the sex scenes are tasteful. I can't wait for the next book.

Bloody Awesome book

William D Arand is one of the most talented and skilled author's. I enjoy this book in it's written form. But with the voice acting talents and skills of Andrea Parsneau. Who makes the characters and world come alive with her narration.
This book is a must to listen to and get lost in the story and world of the Dungeon....
12/10 stars ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆....
