Publisher's Summary

This ain't your daddy's tower defense! 

Popper, Jonah, Gretchen, and Alice are back! The Hobgoblin Riot: Dominion of Blades, Book 2. A LitRPG adventure.

Clusterf--k: clus·ter·f--k. Vulgar slang. Noun.

  1. A disastrously and utterly mishandled situation or undertaking.
  2. Popper’s scouting mission to Castellane.

It was supposed to be a simple scouting mission. In and out. No fighting. No new quests. Just me, my hippocorn, Alice, and a few hired mercenaries. We were going to tiptoe into the Spiral, get the info we needed, and leave. You know, the Spiral? That tower-defense run that protects the hobgoblin capital from invaders?  

Easy, right? Nobody would even know we were there.

Yeah, so about that....

Great series with a better performance

I read the book in kindle and jumped on the opportunity to listen to the audiobook. I have said this before but I think it's even more relevant in this case. A good narrator doesn't just read the words on the page, they bring to life the story and characters the author wrote. They are actors or artist on a stage with voice alone as their props. Andrea and Hayes did a great job in bring to life these well storied characters. The book, I couldn't recommend it more. The audio book is great addition to an already well written and illustrated series.

Best LitRPG series I've listened to.

Almost 19 hours, and you'll be rapt through the whole thing. I love this story. And the performance is spectacular. Andrea Parsneau is so good with all these voices and accents, she's like the Swiss Army knife of audiobook narrators. Phenomenal!

Fun listen, novel premise

This was an enjoyable read that covered a topic close to my heart, Tower Defense. Solutions to insurmountable problems seemed a little too easy at times, but the book has its own internal logic and I didn't mind so much. I would recommend it to a friend.

Good Listen

I enjoyed this book. It went by super fast and I finished the whole thing in a day in a half. The sci-fi stuff is a little jarring at the beginning and end. Feels like two different stories are being told, but it was still well worth the credit.

Not a fan of cry baby mc

The fight scenes where done well. The plot and story line was also good. My biggest gripe is that every other chapter was the mc crying or whining about something.
