Publisher's Summary

Emma is an artificial intelligence with a love of science, insults, and devilish traps. When her systems are booted up, she finds herself in control of a long-abandoned facility in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The world is filled with dangerous threats, granted great powers by the same cataclysm that befell the world.

Emma must balance safety with the desire for test subjects as she brings herself back fully online and stakes out a place in this new world.

Fun to listen to.

Love living dungeons? You'll love this. It wasn't over the top with action, or upgrading. Nor was it an anime in a book, or a straight d n d theme. Looking forward to the second book.

There literally is no ending

look I'm a fan of the dungeon Core Series. That's referred to in this book. it's the Divine dungeon series and it's a good read. Unfortunately this book really doesn't have a plot. It's just one combat scenario after another that terminates at the end of a boss battle with no conclusion. Literally are heroes are plummeting through this guy to their Doom after beating the boss and that's the end of the book. And were told by the author that this is a one-off book literally told by the author that this is a one-off book so you will never know what happens to our protagonists because they're falling to their death at the end of the book and this is a one-off book. I was prepared to forgive the lack of plot because it reminds me of books I like but the ending is just terrible. I cannot say this enough there's no ending to this book everyone is seconds from dying and there is no sequel. they won but for arbitrary reasons they're going to die probably maybe unless you talk to you off or into a sequel but she flat out said it's a one-off. That's so stupid

Some disturbing parts, fun story idea, adultish co

ntent. Some disturbing stuff along with the enjoyable. Unless you don't mind reading about human test subjects being tortured in labyrinth prison cells for the sake of research and power growth for perhaps the remainder of their lives, oh and casual killings in a variety of fasions, some graphically described as only possibilities. Some sexual stuff some people will be averse to.

Skyler Grant delivers more great entertainment

This book has a great take on a sentient dungeon. I was happy and surprised to find this hiding in my suggestions from audible. This book is somewhat mean, but all in all easy to get wrapped up in. Update THERE'S MORE! He wrote more books for this world! Super excited, I thought this was going to be a one off.
