Publisher's Summary

Both Cal and Dale have become stronger, each in spite of the other.

The dungeon - Cal - knows exactly how much their strength has increased, and is working hard to become exponentially more powerful. His schemes are becoming more complex, and his dungeon - his body - more deadly.

Dale has a nasty surprise waiting for him as he works to thwart the plans of the devious dungeon. Hearing a voice in his head that distracts him in critical moments, he must fight his mind as he battles deadly creatures.

Unbeknownst to both, they are in for the fight of their lives as madness threatens the land....

love it! where is book 3 for audible preorder??

this book developed much more than the first. book 1 was great but i enjoyed this one more. There was more action and buildup and a freakin cliffhanger!

great and unique story with triple A narrating.

This story was engaging and incredible with memorable and lovable characters. I found myself forgetting that it was narrated because this guy is so good at making different characters with his voice. what a team this author and narrator make. I'll be waiting now for the next in the series.

PS why can't the song of ice and fire series have this narrator?? lol

So good!

This book was released just after I finished the first book and now I can't wait for the third one. The world is more centered around the dungeon in this book and the story all as the characters are great.

Cliffhanger ending that will make you long for the next book. It's released already but I guess it takes a while to record an audio version.

Even if you're not a DnD fan you'll love this book!

decent book but the ending will irritate you

most of the book was light-hearted but the ending seemed out of place with its change in tone. I found myself becoming irritated. definitely worth getting.

Continues a Fun and Exciting Adventure

Vikas Adam inflects plenty of personality into the varied characters of this new series by the author Dakota Krout. Keep an ear out for subtle pop culture references!

Mostly solid, lots of fun

This sequel to Dungeon Born has a lot of the same fun spirit as the first book. Cal is cheerfully and childishly homicidal towards the adventurers (and others) who enter his maw, Dale progresses nicely, and the interplay between the two is delightful. The characters remain a bit shallow, but not annoyingly so.

The voice acting really carried the playful tone of the story and Cal's last line was chilling. Adam's voice was unfortunately bland so sometimes i had a hard time telling his lines apart from the narration.

There are two things of which i must complain, unfortunately, both knock their reflective caretakers down a star.

First is the clunky and disruptive self references of the author in the book. They seemed forced and painfully wedged in. Like the story itself was in pain for their presence.

The second is that the voice actor clearly had not heard the words ingots or reagent said out loud before. I found myself correcting the actor out loud after the umpteenth time he said reagent as "re-agent". I was able to contain the compulsion for "in-got" possibly because ingot was written fewer times in the story.

But i wouldn't key that stop you from listening to this delightful series. Next please!

Great Book

Another great story. I do not want to ruin any part of the story for anybody but I will tell you that once you get into the story it keeps you listening. I normally listen only at work but this book kept me going at home. I can not wait for the third installation of the series. I had to buy the actual book so I can get a sneak peek.

Oh come on!

Dakota Krout does it again. With the voice of Vikas Adam's bringing the characters to life, Dungeon Madness had me immersed in the world of Cal and Dale. With each passing chapter, I whooped for every breakthrough Cal discovered, and admired Dale for growing so much with his training.

If you are looking for a series where the main characters are a morally loose mad scientist that desires to learn every aspect about everything, and a town leader/fighter who seeks to make a name for himself, while also proving that just because you are older or have more power doesn't make you his better. Then look no further!

A fun listen. I can't wait for the next one!

I love the way this series is playing out. For an inanimate object, Cal finally sees a hint of character development, and the ending took me by surprise. I can't wait to see what the next installment brings.

I don't have anything objectively bad to say about this book, so I'm going to nitpick.

I think the only thing that bothered me about this one, as with the first book, is that nobody just "said" anything. They muttered it, or they nodded it, or they laughed it. Maybe they chuckled it or scowled it. And in the very rare event that someone "said" something, they did it with some adverb that may or may not have been a real word.

Aside from that, I have no complaints. I don't regret using a monthly credit on this one at all; I loved it. And the narrator was great, too.

2 down one to go.

I’m 2 books in to this series and I’m hooked. I’m kinda sad there only seems to be 1 more to go. This book starts where first book ended off and is just as good. Sometimes with trilogy books the second one can be a bit weak, not so with this series. The second is just as interesting, funny, exciting and downright enjoyable as the book that got me hooked.
This series is awesome, the reader performance is great and the author style of writing is not laborious at all.

Can’t wait to start the next book

Interesting concept

Interesting concept but so terribly written. This is written by the kind of author that has such a limited vocabulary that they must search the Internet for fancy words and put them everywhere they can in the hopes it will improve the quality of book. I would not be surprised if this series of books where in fact written by a young teenager. The performance of the narrator is cringe worthy, this is probably not helped by the poor script that they have to read. It is not worth a credit.
