Another masterpiece, as expected

This is my fifth pairing of Vikas Adam's voice with Dakota Krout's work, and possibly the best yet.

Krout's writing continues to get better and better, even though he started with such an amazing book.

In the same vein, Vikas' interpretations of the characters brings them to life like noone else ever could.

Regicide is the second entry in the Completionist Chronicles, and has amped up the story since the first. The characters are phenomenal, the writing clever and witty, and the story itself is unparalleled. If you enjoyed the first, this is definitely worth continuing. If you've come across this review and havent listened to the first book (The Ritualist), I cannot recommend it enough.

He is giving me allot more than an inch!

If you have already listened to this book then you no doubt recognize my headline as a paraphrase from the book. You are probably also rolling on the floor laughing right now as you remember it. Definitely my favorite moment in the whole story but it was a really hard choice. This book is an absolutely exceptional sequel and every bit as good, maybe even better, than the first book. It has moments of seriousness expertly broken up with just enough comedic antidote to keep the book light and fun. Also, i am usually good at predicting events but the surprise twists in this book blind sided me at least 6 times. I was up till 2 in the morning last night finishing the book and am listening to it again now as i right this review.

If you liked the first book you will love this one and you too will want allow more than an inch. ROFL!!!!

Where are my socks?

Anybody seen my socks? They are were knocked off by this book and I still haven't found them yet.

Seriously though, this is a continuation of one of my favorite new series, it's funny and the writing is solid.
It can be a little dark since the main character can be a little amoral but nothing crazy. And the book avoids one of my pet peeves about books but especially the LITRPG genre, over sexualized characters! No dumb fantasy harems, every woman (or man) doesn't immediately want to screw the main character, no Author fantasies ruining a perfectly good scene.

I am super eager for the next book, I highly recommend this series.

King of litRPG

Dakota Krout's Regicide crowns him as the now and future king of litRPG. The Completionist Chronicles rules using everything we love about the genre: fun characters, playful writing, and exciting fantasy violence in a fantastic world we're always excited to learn more about. The plot advances quickly while keeping the character sheet lists that slogs listeners in other litRPG audiobooks to the minimum needed.

The new characters are likable, and I especially enjoyed Jackson, whose low charisma laughs make him the spiritual child of Robert Bevan's Half-Orc character 'Cooper,' but with less body fluids.

The pacing of this book is the best of all Krouts work so far, things move quickly without pages wasted on travel or character sheets that haven't changed much since the last time they were read. (with the exception of 2 moments where Vikas Adams does a great job of saying "asterix" three times fast.

This book deserves more than 5 stars

This is an amazing follow up to The Ritualist honestly made me want to go back and power listen through both again

I connect well with the character with little to no effort. often finding my self consumed by the story and narration. Riding the highs, laughing at the puns, raising blood pressure with the woes and foes of Joe.

Potentially great story. Questionable writting!

I am new to the LitRPG genre. My introduction to LitRPG was The Land series by Aleron Kong and so far I have read all of those. Therefore my conclusions about this series are based off that experience.

Dakota Krout is absolutely spot on with this story line. Although book 1 was a little slow to pick up Regicide is gas pedal all the way. The story from a LitRPG stand point is really entertaining and will keep you wanting more, especially when the battles and moments get tense.

My only fault with this series and this author involves a mind numbing elementary writing style. I honestly don't know if this is a result of how the narrator reads or simply how the actual book would read but it is hard to hear at moments. Its difficult to describe but every so often, and not for any reason, short almost grade school sentences are used and it makes the entire production seem less than professional. It hard to explain but chapters ending with, "It was a good day, or "He had lots of fun today" just make the whole book seem like a kids book. It's hard to explain but I promise you will pick up on it as you begin to listen.

This is by far the best representation of LitRPG and I would not recommend this being your first venture into this genre. All that being said, this series does have some potential and if your like me and you're waiting impatiently on the next Aleron Kong book to release, this will help hold you over.

Another great book by Dakota Krout

"The completionist chronicles" is such a good series.
Listen as Joe continues to grow as he strives for his goal of discovering every secret.
Regicide doesn't shrink back or backpedal from the events of the previous book.
The events of the last book have had exactly as big of an impact as we thought they should. And the events of this book are going to have even larger consequences. That's the best I can tell you without spoilers. If you are about to read this: it's gonna be good.
If you've ever tried to complete everything in a video game this is the series for you.
exciting, engaging. The main character can admit flaws and in doing so improve himself.
Have you ever listened to a book and wanted to learn more about the secrets of the world? Well this series promises to deliver through Joe's goal of 100% completion.
Regicide does not break it's running stride of discovery.
And it let's you know it is only the tip of the iceburg. I've read quite a few Dakota Krout books, and when he has a book drop hints of things to come, he delivers--unlike some authors who build mystery for it's own sake. In Dakota Krout's books, mysteries are meant to be discovered and revealed, that is half the fun.
This world has enough layers that as each layer of mystery is pulled back you can see the next,
but after all as Tim "T Snake" let slip in the first book, "It's more than just a game."

wasn't expecting much

And yet, both books really took me by surprise. both the story and performance are implemented skilfully. I definitely intend to get the third book in this series once it come out.

A fantastic story

This series is one of the best LitRPG's out just now, well written and interesting story with a bit of everything.

I am enjoyed this book very much because the main character is fully committed to the game world, has interesting abilities and room for growth. I loved the crafting and research aspects of the game world. A nice twist at the end of the book.

The Narrator does an outstanding job and doing a Scottish accent can be tricky. I liked the voice of the system/A.I. best of all it's mysterious, yet easy to understand. Vikas Adam has become one of my favourite narrator's who's performance adds depth and life to the story.

I eagerly look forward to the next book but will wait for the audiobook to be available to get the most out of the book.

If you enjoyed the first you'll like this one.

More of the same really but still good. I liked Joe's prisoner number. The humour was on point and the numbers were a secondary concern, as ever. Good narration and fun plot although not quite as good a story as in book 1.

Cant wait for the next one.

Loved it. Better than the first. Cant wait to see where this is going.
Protagonist is well reasoned.
Narrator has a pleasant voice. Accent imitation needs work. But is good.
Seriously cant wait for the next. Finished it in two days.

Absolutely Amazing.

Dakota (author) has done an amazing job. If you lived the first book in the series then you’ll love this one even more. The improved wiring in addition to Vikas Adam’s wonderful performance made for an action packed and enjoyable listening experience.

Highly recommended.
