expands upon the first exceptionally

Begins right where the first left off. The story picks up the pace dramatically.

Richter develops his powers and his village in this installment. In addition, he learns of several looming threats in the distance.

It never slows down and I love it.

Keeps you wanting more!

Nick Podehl does an amazing job brining Aleron Kong's characters and world to life again making that just 5 more min before bed turn into hours. I continue to love the sarcastic humor between Richter and Sion. This book has it all video game / role playing game mechanics, amazing characters, dungeons, and monsters to kill.

I like the first book better

This book wasn't bad, a good portion of it was made up two battles, and it was nothing but frustrating for me to listen to. The main character was describing the battle going on around him without doing anything himself. He had obvious goals to complete, but in some cases after chapters go by of him describing what is happening around him, the battle ends with him running off into the mist to kill some of the leftovers, no details he just returns and the game-like interface explains the rewards he gets for completing the side quests. You have to assume... Some of the stupid mistakes he makes are obvious, I have no doubt anyone who reads or listens to the story will bang their own head. I feel the main character is smart but the writer for some reason allows him to step out of character for the added drama. I wasn't going to buy the next book, but I found myself wondering what happen next, Gawd! I'm hooked, much to my dismay. ARG! oh well, see you in the next one. :)

loved the book, good writing and good narration

Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favorite?

krom the blacksmith. pretty funny and when you picture the dwarf as he goes on it is even better.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Loved it!

I finished Listening to Forging earlier this week, so now I'm re-re-re-re-re-re-reading the rest of the series on E-book. Waiting oh so patiently while my Favorite M.D./Author speed writes my next prescription of The Land. Nick Podehl did an amazing job narrating.

Bring the rest of the series to Audible!

My only complaint is that the books are not longer. Nick does an amazing job bringing the character to life. The story keeps me wanting more. Plenty of laugh out loud moments. I really hope the rest of the series gets here faster.

Still loving it

Really enjoy this series. Read the books first as e-books and now I'm going back and listening to them as audio. Very much looking forward to the rest of the series coming to audible and the 7th book, which is coming out soon. Crossing my fingers that by the 8th book, ebook and audible version will release simultaneously. Also, the author Aleron Kong, really churns out the novels, so as a reader, you have confidence it won't be years in between releases. It's more like months. The main character is evolving nicely, but I'd love to see some more deeper relationships evolve for him. His relationship with Sion is great and you really feel that sense of camaraderie. Eventually you get the same with Terrod and Krom but I feel like the relationships with the females are a bit more superficial and not well fleshed out (mostly simple flirtation and so on). But the series appears to be setting up for a lengthy run of novels, so here's to hoping those will come. Here's hoping for some strong and prominent female characters.

Nick Podehl continues to be an outstanding narrator with a great range of voices that he lends to the characters. He also just has an excellent feel for pacing as he reads the book. Can't recommend him as a narrator enough.

I personally feel the series rewards my continued investment as a reader and honestly, that's what I'm looking for anytime I start a book.

More Chunks of Meaty world building and Leveling

loved it!
it's just more of what you loved from book 1, with more in depth worldbuilding and questing, and a bunch of new spells and leveling up

it has a even more Overlord feel when Richter is dealing with more then just his solo leveling

Sion and Rickter begin to properly kick ass!

Sion and Rickter are two of the best characters I’ve listened to in years, and undoubtedly the best in litrpg, the friendly banter as they grow and develop the most village and surrounding area is brilliant, treat yourself to this, you won’t regret it!

Hooked from the first minute

When I first saw The Land on Audible, I kind of thought oh well, I might as well give it a go! I had never heard of litrpg... what a revelation, now I am hooked and it was one of the best listens I have had in a long while. I looked forward to getting in the car every morning for my trip to work. Now I've listened to both released audiobooks and can't wait to listen to the next one!! When is it coming?

loved the book and story, as a fan of mmorpg I can enjoy imaging playing the game as the story unfolds.

The audio for this books makes it so much better tho, it's a perfect partnership for the two to make an amazing experience.

Looking forward to the rest of the series.

It was narrated perfectly and it was elegantly written.

Rough edges but addicting and nostalgic.

Where does The Land: Forging rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

With streamlining on stat page reading and some smarter moral discussion it would be TOP.

Any additional comments?

The main character walks a fine line in a new world between building a Moral Compass and Kill & Explore. He's owns values such as freedom>family, family>morals, and security>freedom; then kicks in the gamer which is Fun>Security which acts as the catalyst to loss and eventual character depth.

the main character was horrible

What disappointed you about The Land: Forging?

the main character was childish, narcissist, obtuse and made me cringey i tried listening to the hole book but i could not get passed chapter 20 time 7:53.

What character would you cut from The Land: Forging?

main character

Any additional comments?

i became very angry and annoyed listen to the moronic main character, everything else was brilliant
