Publisher's Summary

Stranded on an alien planet with his consciousness implanted inside of a Station Core, Milton Frederick has used all of the resources at his disposal to protect his damaged Core from local hostile beasts, Proctans, and even a massive bear-gorilla hybrid that almost single-handedly destroyed his dungeon. 

Milton is joined by his AI guide, ALANNA, as well as Brint and Whisp - two Proctans that have joined him in his endeavors; with the introduction of two new “recruits” - Rosewyn and Moxwell - they form a plan that enlists a few more Guardian Guild members to help combat the threat that Brint had discovered underneath the Quizard Mountains to the east. 

Unfortunately, not everything is going as well for the Guardian Guild, the organization tasked with defending the Proctan kingdom from the wild beasts roaming their borders. A political coup instigated by the Cordpower Company has upset the monarchial government and the Guild has been caught in the crossfire. 

Now, Milton has to figure out how to deal with that issue, while at the same time preparing for the inevitable arrival of the threat from the Quizard Mountains. 

Fortunately, new discoveries of his own has led to great strides in manipulating the Gene Mutations that affect the Proctans. Not only has the introduction of a Neurological Control Unit allowed for the manipulation of abilities, but it also provides something that will change the very nature of how the Proctans view death - and something that Milton, as a gamer, knows very well: respawning. 

But will those advantages be enough against the threat coming their way? 

Contains LitRPG/GameLit elements such as level progression and experience, optional tables, no harems, and a heavy Dungeon Core emphasis. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Meili gives another great performance.

Miles Meili gives another great performance with Jonathan Brooks's station core series. Milton and company must prepare for the imminent attack from the Mountains, and Milton, himself, must navigate his new role as the Guild caretaker in their time of need. Milton has fully accepted his role as a Station Core and look forward to more adventures in the next book.

My son turned me on to this series

So far, good easy listen and enjoyable story. I like it. This being the third one, the characters are coming along, the world is growing and the ideas are good.

I am a fairly harsh critic, so, (3 stars )pretty good from me, it means pretty good. I rarely put things at 4 or 5 stars.

Audible's rating is:
1 Star is "not for me"
2 Stars "it is okay"
3 Stars "pretty good"
4 Stars "it's great"
5 Stars "I love it"

A one star book could be a very dry topic, story,crude or someone preaching down to the reader. I generally don't have 1 star books. I will just return them and go my own way. My last 3 were from the same series, I had hit a very dry spot in my listening.

A 2 star story, would be something that was phoned in by a writer that typically has done much better work. I have a couple of reviews from authors that just seemed to phone it in, one most recently from an author that decided to mix current politics into his novel. If I wanted that, I would just watch the news.

A 3 star review is where I really start. It means I enjoyed the book. That I did not have a hard time following it (I have lost alot of my conversational hearing). That the story kept to a plot, the characters were not static, and the world built was plausable.

A 4 star review is something that I really enjoyed. It puts the author on my map to keep an eye out for. I go through 12-15 books a month. (audible is my primary source of entertainment. ) I will search for the author's works regularly, and seek out their stories for future purchases.

A 5 star review, These are not as rare as one would think. These are the books where the characters grow, learn, act according to their nature. Where the world is not only plausible but believable. Where there are economic systems, businesses, rules of law that make sense. Where the story is woven is progressed and told with caring and dedication. These are books, series, authors and narrators that bring it all in a package.

So, when reading my reviews, if anyone does, that is how I judge the books.

Another excellent addition to the series

Another excellent addition to this series. This author never fails to impress. Everything u could want in a dungeon core litrpg series. Likable characters, staggered progression, political dbags the dungeon couldn't care less about, and mysterious hooks. Looking forward to the next one.

Fun alongside great devoelopment

Book received for free.

I really love this series and thoroughly enjoyed this book with all of its great development for both the MC and his ever-growing minion army. The twist at the end of the book was great but a little predictable, although I am very much looking forward to seeing how this progresses and just who the true villain of this story turns out to be. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.

Once again

This is one hell of a story. I think it was the best one so far as for action. I do like the fact that he's taking responsibility for what he believes is his fault and helps the people out. I really can't wait to see where the next one goes.

Five books in and still going strong

Unapologetic fun light fantasy. I love the way this series is coming out so quickly. Five books in and I’m still having fun. More characters, more abilities, more bearillas! And the final reveal, I knew it! Looking forward to the one.

A strong continuation of the series

Full disclosure. I was gifted a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

For me, this has been the best book in the series so far. I am very definitely enjoying the ongoing plot line, and the steady build up of the overall story.

The pacing in this one seemed better to me than the first two, which could be a little slow in places, and I do like the way the stats are interleaved in in such a way that they could be skipped by anyone less interested.

The only slight disappointment was the big surprise reveal at the end of the book... which I'd already guessed back in volume 2. It certainly didn't runin the ending or the book for me, so don't let that put you off reading it.

It is definitely a series that needs to be read in order, but for me at least, it's well worth doing so.
