Publisher's Summary

Alvin had another rough week, but at least this time, he had Gothy with him.  

Travelling from Utah to Nevada, they were able to set up two more Settlements. Then they had to visit the world of Fey to rescue the kids of the Beatty, Nevada, Settlement. Just when things looked like they were going well, the Developers got involved.  

With the very rules of the game changing, Alvin found himself in a new position. Gothy pledged herself to him through the game system, leaving her collared and bound to obey his every whim. Coming to terms with their new relationship, Alvin wondered what would come next.  

He wasn’t expecting a road trip north to loot an abandoned town, nor the dragon that guarded it. What came as the biggest surprise was the chance encounter with a fantasy race whose gate had opened. What would come of this fateful meeting?  

This audiobook contains adult situations, in all their horror and glory, including sex, abuse, drug use, and murder. It also contains graphic sex scenes that portray elements of BDSM. You’ve been warned.

worst one.

Having a 16 year old girl get raped and tortured (flayed) was sickening, ruined my whole day. Then later there is wife getting gang raped infront of her husband. This book made me lose any respect I had for the author. I can't believe that so many people gave this 5 stars.

All the sex scenes and sexual innuendo also gets tiring and just annoying, I end up skipping most of it because there is just so much of it. The author seriously needs to get laid.

I have regretted purchasing books before, but never have I been so disappointed that this book series is in my library. Last book I ever get fron this author.

Great read

Love the book characters story all get 5 stars. To me the narrator was good but I much more enjoyed Andrea Parsneau as a narrator.

Same problems as his alpha world series...

Just like in the Daniel Shinhofen's "Alpha World" series; the world building takes a back seat in the third book. So now that world building is gone we get to focus on the relationship of the MC and Gothy. Alvin becomes even more of an ass and Gothy encourages him to be even worse. I didnt enjoy the direction this series decided to take. Sadly I think this is were I leave.

Needs more furthering of the actual story.

I don't mind the sex scenes, but more of the story itself would be appreciated. Too much of the sex stuff just makes it tedious.

I feel like it has been dumbed down since book 1

I'm sad I enjoyed book one so much Becky went from an interesting love interest to a willing sex slave. I'm really disappointed.

Action! Adventure! Hedonism!

Book three expands even further on the world opened to us in book 2. It also gets into stronger BDSM, so if you find that objectionable, then you may want to reconsider this series. To be fair, the main characters have issues, so this fits them. It’s also all done very well, so I myself didn’t find anything distasteful. It definitely adds something to the story.

And what a story! The world keeps getting richer, and you often never know what’s going to happen next. No matter how bad things get, our dynamic duo manage to work their way through with style, snark, and a - in this world - healthy lack of anger management.

Let's Go Dragon Hunting!!!

Great story and narration!
(a new narrator for this book - Tess is great and does a great job!)

Our favorite zombie hunting and monster slaying couple is back and at it again! More settlements! More epic monster battles! More adventure! Alvin's room gets upgraded into a base, and Gothy gets her very own sex-dudgeon. What could possibly go wrong? Oh... and Dragon slaying - can't forget about that!

Another fun book, and great continuation of the series!

Note:
This story is Haram Gamelit and this book contains several explicit scenes with a more S&M vibe.

While the change of narrator changed....

... She is one of my favorite narrators and she had made sure you know each character by voice easily. I enjoyed the book and only want more of gothy and kuro. Oh and Hero can come as well. I was one of the biggest donators mentioned in it. I promise

it's changing and not for the better

The story has enough to hold your interest but the school boy fantasy is getting worse this time by adding BDSM. The over the top sex just drag you out of what is a interesting world. At lest the author did not go down the paedophelia looking wrote it seemed like he was going to go with in this book. The change of narrators is a bit distracting with all the characters now having new voices that don't match to the previous two books while she does a good job it's not what you are expecting. if it wasn't for the ending this would be the last book in this series I would purchase.

Not great...

There is a massive difference in the performance, and the story seemed to lack in this book. Lots of sex and Al just being an asshole.

Disconcerting

The change in narrators really changes things (nothing against Tess, got a few books narrated by her) but it feels disorienting having to get used to the new voices.

Also there is a big difference between being a dominant asshole and then going full Christian grey BDSM style. The two things don't mesh and it changes the MC and the tone of the book for the worse. Just overall disappointed from what was two good books from people (author and narrator(s)) I've really enjoyed previously.

great book!

Only complaint is the disconnnect of switching narrators. Both Tess and Andrea are excellent. Great read.
