Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the long-awaited seventh novel of the best-selling saga by Aleron Kong.
The longest and best book ever recorded by Nick Podehl!

The Land: Founding, Book 1 of the Chaos Seeds Saga, reached number one in the Audible store in 2017!

A mesmerizing tale reminiscent of the wonder of Ready Player One and the adventure of Game of Thrones

Number one in epic fantasy, cyberpunk, and video game fantasy

In The Land: Predators, the Mist Village has harnessed its power. With core buildings, Professional fighters, and now their own Dungeon, the settlement is primed to grow into a kingdom of true power and magic. The path to power has not been without risk, however. The Mist Village has been noticed.

Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice, and fanatical kobolds from the Depths all plot the village's destruction. The predators are circling. Richter's people are horribly outnumbered by foes whose own power has been entrenched for thousands of years.

Richter and Sion need to be stronger than ever before. Luckily, they are. New skills have been learned, stronger enchantments have been wrought, and the hundreds of villagers have answered the call to adventure. The Companions do not stand alone. While many eyes have turned toward the mists, wanting to take the treasures within, the Mist Village stares back with a simple message.

Good, minor annoyances

loved the book, but the author needs to cut back a little on the informational interface. several areas where it seems to drag on too long. story line is great.

A wild ride of emotions and innovative insults

If you are reading this, and are on the fence of whether or not is worth a credit, let me help you out, it absolutely is. Podehl is, as per usual, amazing at giving life to the characters and situations that Kong has created. This installment pulls no punches, it leaves the listener with an overwhelming sense of, “what next?!” Definitely worth the Value

"Gnomes Rule!"

SHORT VERSION:
+ Great story & progression
+ Wonderful character development
+ Epic Narrator!
+ Long book / series

- gotta wait for next book :'(
+++ there's gonna be a next book!!

EXTENDED REVIEW:
Honestly, I purchased the first book maybe a month ago? I then blazed through the rest like I was being paid to listen to them! this story has caught me so hard I'm not even sure how to describe the level of joy I've found listening to the series.

Coming from an old school gamer, child of the 80's, it greatly reminds me of what games / stories use to be (you know..."good"). it's very nice to see that creativity hasn't completely been lost. Infact I'd go as far to say it's revived a bit of my own.

WRAP IT UP:
Invest in this story as I have, I promise you won't be disappointed. My one and ONLY complaint, I suppose (that is why we all read reviews, is it not?), would be occasionally I found character progression notifications to be a bit relentless. I wouldn't be a fool and suggest the author change anything BUT I do feel by end of book 2 let's say... we get it? so maybe trim those down a bit? besides after a time I can't truly keep track of all of it... so just had know, say he leveled up n touch base on key points? but anyway that's maybe 1 bad thing for 99 great things so nearly worth mentioning.

GNOMES RULE!

Another Masterpiece!

This is likely the last book of the series, though I pray it is not. I can only describe it as an emotional rollercoaster and an exhausting trial of tug of war. One minor annoyance is the repeating of facts and prompt noises throughout the long book, but I chalk it up to making sure listeners remember if they cannot binge the books like I have.

The masterful voice of Nick Podehl cannot be topped by even the gods of old. I am left wanting more. So many facets have been left unexplored and unanswered. I want it to never stop. I know in my heart that all good things must come to an end however.

Regardless if this is the last iteration of The Land, and even if I never get to hear Richter's cursed ramblings and curses, the story told here will forever resonate within me. If this series were to have a final message, it would have to be... "Gnomes Rule".

DARK but a fun story

Be warned this one was very very dark, still it felt real because of it. This one helps move the story to a great set up. My only problem with this one would be how the main character pushes the envelope of luck too often to be even bookly believe able.

Charming storytelling with surprising depth

Having followed Richter and his rise to power, the story just keeps on growing as do Richter's talents. His death defying stunts grow with the telling as do his deeds. I'm looking forward to the next instalment. Nice work Aleron.

Disappointed

I usually enjoy the books in this series, but I found all the notifications and prompts in this book annoying. I love the story but think the story would have benefited from less notifications and such like.

Needlessly sexualised.

This author continues to show his arrogant, self important personality through heavily sexist comments and attitude of his main character. This truly detracts from the story of the book and taints the experience of a whole. I often found myself cringing at the jokes that are made here.

Good, but...

I am a big fan of this series - the first book was amazing and I’ve enjoyed the journey from there, despite some slowness in developing the story along the way.

This was enjoyable but I did find myself getting annoyed with it. My main gripe with this book is that Aleron repeats so much info unnecessarily as though it’s written for someone who hasn’t read/listened to any previous books. It’s patronising in parts and frustrating to have things overexplained. I dislike that Aleron keeps adding new wild elements to the story rather than actually progressing or concluding the MANY existing threads. It’s frustrating having so much unresolved and having Aleron introduce lots of new story threads.

Nick does an incredible job with the narration as always. I just hope Aleron is going to start tying the many threads together in the next book because I’m starting to think lots of it will never be resolved or it will take 90 books to get there.

Enjoyed this despite cringing a few times, looking forward to the next one, just a bit wary of what does come next.

For the mist

Enjoyed this book very much. It got a bit boring towards the end going on a bit too long with the points and gaming component but then it got really entertaining. The final scene was amazing and I can’t wait for the next book.
