Publisher's Summary

Book 2 of The Realms, and the sequel to the best-selling fantasy LitRPG novel Barrow King.

"I cannot believe that idiotic plan worked."

The only thing Gryph wanted when he entered the Realms was to find his missing sister. Then he pissed off a power-hungry god, got stuck in the undead hell dungeon known as the Barrow and nearly had his soul consumed. 

Then things trended upwards, and with the help of a ragtag group of companions, Gryph escaped to a verdant paradise of magic and wonder. But when his exposed secrets lead to betrayal and murder, Gryph is forced to accept an insane quest or his new friends will face the headsman's axe.

Now, to stop a world-conquering zealot from capturing an ancient weapon of incredible power, Gryph must become the one thing he never wanted to be, a leader. Standing in his way are a group of crazed cultists, an army of deadly magical machines, and friends who no longer trust him.

And he is still no closer to saving his sister. The Lost City is the sequel to the breakout LitRPG hit Barrow King, an overflowing cauldron of leveling, world building, humor, and action.

Dungeons and Dragons

This book is written in a D&D style. Knowing that up front sets the rating for the story. 5 stars for a D&D story.

The search for Brynn continues

This is a good sequel to the Barrow King. It starts off calm but quickly spirals into chaos. The story revolves around Gryff (Finn) who is continuing his search for his sister.

This story really took me for a ride. There's sadness, laughter and a little bit of stupid along the way, but this made me feel like I was in the group with the characters and it reminded me of a few people I know.

This was based somewhere like an alternate realm of the Eastern Kingdoms with the Alliance, especially the dwarves (sounded just like the dark irons). I just wanted to keep shouting for the horde every time the “alliance” was mentioned, which begs the question, Chris are you for the alliance, or for the horde 😊

Really enjoyed this and am waiting for more.

Kept me guessing

Really didn’t know how this would turn out and just when I expected the author to have Gryff save the day it had another twist in the tale.

The specifics of what was happening and how got slightly “murky” in some places, but still a very enjoyable listen and I am looking forward to hearing what happens in the next book!

Better than the first!

There are sadness and plenty of laughter. I had a hard time at the beginning, but it quickly picked up the pace. The narration is really good as well, but when I'm sleepy his voice just soothes me right out so I have to put on the sleep timer so I don't miss anything.

An epic saga

An epic continuation from the Barrow King this story builds on the already vast realms and keeps you gripped throughout.
Plenty of humour, action and drama, it kept me listening with fascination from the characters' first battle right through to the final conclusion.
Carney's writing flows through the chapters and combined with Armen Taylor's stunning range of voices creates a masterpiece saga that I will be adding to my roster of audiobooks to come back to time and time again.

Draaaaaaags

Is this lit rpg or a weak attempt at epic fantasy? Too little agency for the protagonists, to much deus ex machina. Anything can happen so nothing matters... Blegh.

Here is where I leave the series all together

I was barely okay with the first book, hoping it would build to a better series, but it did not. I found the book just dragged and dragged and dragged on with chapters and chapters of stuff that could have been done with a whole lot less. This is an author that needs to go back to school to learn "Less is More" I had to stop listening many times because of the drull onslaught of mind numbing detail the author thought was soooooooo important. It was sooo bad I have had to stop listening to audio books for a few days because it was just painful to hope the book would recover and pick itself back up. I do not know how this book had such decent reviews, it does not deserve it.
