Publisher's Summary

The dungeon adventures continue with Doc, Claire, and company. With the win over the Tomb of the Forgotten King, they are as strong and curious as ever. While the town recovers from the attack, Doc settles in with his new powers and improves his dungeon to new levels. New slime evolutions, traps, and floors incoming!

Meanwhile, something is rising in the dark in Duren. To counter this, Prince James takes the center stage and decides to have his coronation ceremony in the dungeon town. However, even he can't imagine the plans in motion that will soon engulf his city and country.

With all this happening, the mysterious cocoon in the dungeon has begun to hatch....

Just a smidge better than boring. A tiny smidge.

Well a lot of what was annoying about previous books has been way toned down. Though in some places what replaced it was worse. The pixie especially is less unaligned now and more sadistic treating the dungeon deaths like snuff porn, I mean a good writer could be using these changes as part of a greater character arc to develop Clair's character and better foil Doc. But eh heh, well.that would require a GOOD writer.

The failed attempt at cutely playing house is in some ways still all here. But Everybody Loves Raymond style sitcom humor has been thrown in. And that humor like all the humor in the book is so cliche and not so much badly done as overdone without a trace of self swareness like Shatner was writing his jokes. That its mildly amusing. But just mildly.

There was also a nice dungeon crawl, that suffered from lacking much input from the peanut Gallery that is the dungeon. The comments from the dungeon during the dungeon crawls is half of the entertainment from these books.

And then there were more female characters and a male child character introduced proving that the writer can concieve of only two levels of maturity. Adult. And 5 years old. Nothing in between.

Still all of that could be overlooked because it wasnt boring at least, it was usually at least mildly interesting, enough to keep me listening. The writer had shown a tendency to put extra effort into his climaxes so I was hoping a good book climax would bump this book up to 4 stars.

He dissapointed. The Climax was out of left field. Though at one point it seemed we might at least get some interesting character development for the dungeon. But it was just an allusion and the Dungeon got otherwise completely left out of the climax.

So 3 stars overall. An extra half star lost because its too short. Still rounds to 3.

bad start

In the beggining it jumps around too much. I normally never feel lost but, it does make you uninvested in the characters. it regains focus in the end. and when the book ended i was left wanting more.

as always a good book

this is an excellent addition to the series and a good Segway into the next showing the problems that she has with demons and giving us a potential to see what the statue can do when it realizes it has more than one magic I had its fingers tips
