Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Gun Show!

The top 10 list is populated. The sponsorship program is open. The difficulty is ramping up. The first three floors were nothing compared to what Carl and Donut now face. 

The Iron Tangle. An impossibly complicated subway system built out of the world's subterranean railway systems, all combined and then tied together into a knot. Up is down. Down is up. Close is far. The cars are filled with monsters, the railway stations are less than safe, and the exit is always just a few stops away.

But there is hope. For the first time, the crawlers are all working together. The loot is better than ever. And the secret to unraveling it all may be hidden in the pages of a seemingly useless book. 

Welcome, crawlers. Welcome to the fourth floor of the dungeon.

Neeew ACHIEVEMENT: Trilogy?

Remember when all good series were trilogies? I bet you are glad this one is going to be more than just 3 books then!

Rewaarrd: A sense of emptiness and anticipation until the next book is released....

Just get it...

It’s as original and amazing as the previous two. I hope Matt continues this series for as long as his liver can hold out against the Winnie The Poo reviewer comments fueling his alcoholism. XD Don’t change anything. Just keep this train wreck rolling. “Choo Choo MF’ers!”

That final commercial about JTJ was priceless btw. Thanks for laughs!

Best Story I have read in Years!

Hooked in the first five minutes. Easy to actually care about the characters. Well written, would happily read a book for all 18 levels. Anyone who gives this book a bad review deserves to serve time in the Dungeon.

Goddammit Donut, this book is awesome

Another awesome entry to this series, you should know what to expect if you listened to the previous two.
Some nice surprises in this one, and I just can't wait for book 4.

Liked it overall, but...

I love Jeff Hays' narrative style. The characters are still great, the series is still good, it's still funny but this story is annoying. Once everything is explained you get it, but its used a gimmicky puzzle where the clues tell you literally nothing for a payoff that's alright at best but it doesn't make up for the rest of the story being a cluster fuck. You're like, "What the hell is even going on?" There's no legit progression aside from movement toward next to nothing, and the entire story is a mess, followed by ".....tadaaa..." I honestly didn't even care about what was going on by the end, even with the great characters and superb voice acting I was like "just let this bullshit finish already." It's not like you can just ignore it, since all the characters do is act confused about shit the entire story with no real goal other than "get down more stairs." And it's not like you can Sherlock Holmes the ending with the shitty clues. It's a mystery LitRPG, without anything a mystery is supposed to have.

I'm glad I listened to this one first, because without Jeff Hays, I'd have hated this one, and I loved the other books in the series.

"Glerp glerp!"

Quickly becoming a stable of system apocalypse genre series. definitely the funniest, by far. The story is very well written, and the dialogue is fantastic.

Jeff Hays back at it with his signature butter smooth narration.

Great book!!

Really enjoyed this one. The level geography was a bit confusing but I think that was intentional. The characters were good, there were plenty of fun moments and the narration was brilliant. The plot did seem a little more meandering than in previous installments but it was ok. Looking forward to the next book!

I devoured the first 3 books in less than 2 weeks. All 3 so far have been entertaining but this one has been my favourite. Can’t wait for the 5th floor!

I just want more!

I am so hooked on this series. I also enjoy the development of the main characters and their relationships, while maintaining a balance of action and originality, with a few creative suprises. The narration is great and I got lost it the story. This is the hallmark of decent narration.

Great addition

This was a great addition to the series with more fun characters more magic and more madness. Matt Dinniman does a great job bringing the series to life with more emotional turmoil and action for our characters and MC. Jeff Hays dose a great job with the voices bringing out the turmoil and making the action more interesting for the MC and his Friends. Overall 15/15 nice one

Above and beyond

It's clear by now that Matt is one of my favourite authors. Everything of his I have read has been incredibly entertaining, addictive, and heartwarming. He is a fantastic writer who keeps the stats light, and his awesome characters and stories front and centre. He skilfully weaves in the greater story without expo dumps. Magical and worth every cent. And naturally the narration is out of this world.

Goddammit Matt. Goddammit Jeff.

You guys probably don’t need the money or yet another comment saying how great and funny this series is and so what that Jeff is swimming in...well if you listen to the end you’ll know what. Yeh. So what. It’s good. Brilliant. I hope you’re having fun too.
