Publisher's Summary

Climb the Tower. Feed the Town. 

Blackmoor Cove has been pulled back from the edge of oblivion, but that doesn’t mean the fight is over. While the all-consuming Corruption pushes harder against their progress, Jack embraces his new responsibility to rebuild the broken people around him. However, none of it will last unless he enters the Tower every morning and defeats the vicious monsters within for their valuable loot drops. 

With the Arcane Mage, Thymus, now in the party, they will climb higher than ever before, but will the 12 years of terrible isolation make the time-lost Hero unreliable when he once again confronts the unending nightmares found inside the Tower? 

This “Crunchy” GameLIT/LitRPG story contains: item-based game mechanics, town building, countless unique monsters, boss fights, and cheaty special abilities.

Eh..

The concept of the story is fine, it's just the execution gets more and more silly.. it's like the author gave up on a game world and just pulled whatever lint came out of his pockets and said "eh, fight this next round".

Imaginative and no BS fun

This series lacks all the common tropes that I hate so much in a lot of books nowadays.
Finally there is
No weak male heroes that get humiliated nonstop by their female betters,
No sexual violence,
No woke BS,
No whining MC who constantly tells the reader how unfair everything is,
No nonstop worshiping and praising of US military,
No dumb idiot MC who wins because of completely undeserved luck ("the Land"... Yuck!) But an MC who actually uses his brain.

The whole world is extremely varied and it's never boring.
Note that this isn't a "thrill ride" by any means, but it's never bland or dull.

5 stars

It is not as good as Towers of Heaven series, the Gam3 series, Ritualist & Regicide by Dakota Krout or Shadowsun survival series. But what is. Dante's Immortality is a must read too, but it's just 1 book atm.

If you are a fan of litrpg/ gamelit/ Isekai then this is for you
Or if you just like fantasy or scifi with a twist.

It keeps getting better!

Great story and Narration!

Jack is back and shaking things up! New friends and stronger enemies await! The battle against the corruption continues, and it will take Jack and his teams best to stand up to that vile filth!

Soundbooth does an exceptional job with their narration!

Great world and game mechanics! If you liked the first one, then you will love this one too!

I can't wait to see what happens next!

Its so good! Worth the listen to

I read the book and I was already blown away, yet ti hear it down by these guys again, I was already beyond thrilled. The town building, the adventures in the tower is just so engaging. Another great job by Sound Booth Theater and Prax Venter :)

SBT delivers a multi cast LITRPG Masterpiece

This 2nd installment of the Irrelevant Jack series delivers more great tower climbing, awesome spells, cool gear, crunchy stats, cool battles, city building. It’s just such a great all around series and the multi narrator cast delivers an audio dram feel to it. If you haven’t checked o it this series or SBT now is the time to start (they also have a great app for their productions) I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Excellent book/series

This is a review for the first three books (I finished them all in 2 days). This is a fantastic series. I was a little skeptical after the opening of the first book, but by the 3rd chapter I was hooked. The concept is interesting, the system is fascinating, the characters are fleshed out (but not to the point of knowing too much), the combat feels real, and the creativeness of the author is unreal. I highly recommend these books and am waiting impatiently for the next one.

starting to become repetitive

I loved book 1 but unfortunately in between the story profession are the fights which have become too samey for me. that being said I am still looking forward to book 3 and seeing where the story goes.

Wonderfully entertaining

The characters have fleshed out a bit , the story has evolved and Jacks ignorance which used to annoy me has now gone and a leader has arrived to help lead the town into the higher levels. Things have got exciting and so the narration flies along with a lot more ease now with the niggles i had with the first audio gone.
I feel like the tale has gotten more of my attention and that the series has a lot more legs to it and im moving onto audio 3 a lot more confident in what i will be enjoying.
I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts.

Climb the Tower

Carries on from book 2 with more of the same, traversing a tower over and over to increase gear quality and give the rest to fuel the town to repel the demons. Jack starts to increase his team to venture further up the tower and tries to increase to towns defences.

I did find that the loot descriptions went on a bit much.

Soundbooth do a great job with a nice cast of narrators.

The second leg

This is the second book in the series.
Following the adventures of Jack, trapped in a mine collapse, and taken as energy to a new world, where his ‘out the box’ thinking helps fight back the corruption of the land and gain further levels in the tower.
There is actually too much to say that would be a massive spoiler for those reading this series, suffice it to say that this is an engaging story rife with character relationships and developments that keep you reading / listening.
I particularly enjoyed the audio book version, which is more of a full production, than a straight read, with different voice actors and sound effects. There are several gaming platform releases that will be recognised by the listener throughout the tower crawls, and some that are from the purely weird imagination of the author.
I am eagerly awaiting the next release.

The only thing the Jack is cheating is....

The only thing the Jack is cheating is the quality of the book with these easy upgrades.


For all the effort going into making the levels diverse there is little conversion into town functionallity. Adding something like a battlefield mode against the corruption and assigning a point value to the mobs, with buying battlefield points being like a 10 to 1 conversion or something.


The skill combinations are so obvious that its mind numbing, just stack the sharpen skill on jacks sword and then pet the compound atk damage pile up then omni attack a weak point with double strike, if not just sharpen every sword before you fed it to the Ai to get more value.


The book only really introduces 1 hero character and some villagers while playing matchmaker with jack appearing at key moments like he is playing god. While the ending is forced conflict- with the introduction of new mechanics like battlefields it couldnbe interesting, ill reserve my opinion.

Irrelevant Jack 2

Prax Venter is one the most talented and skilled author and I enjoy his book greatly.

And with the voice acting talents and skills of Andrea Parsneaus, Jeff Hays, Justin Thomas James and Prax Venter who narration makes the characters and world come alive with the narration.
