Publisher's Summary

The Station Core known as Milton has barely survived the first concentrated attack by hostile Proctans, leaving his "dungeon" destroyed and most of his defenders dead. Not the most auspicious start.

But now, with the addition of Brint and his inventor friend, Whisp, Milton now has the tools available to turn his dungeon into one that should easily defend against all comers - or at least he hopes so.

However, when the Cordpower Company - the makers of the original Power Potion - contract the best of the best to find out what happened to their agents, Milton’s dungeon is put to the test against two Proctans who are way out of his league.

Meanwhile, Brint learns more about his ability to control the Combat Units that Milton creates, eventually being put into a position to lead an expedition into the Quizard Mountains. He hopes to find enough resources inside the caves to fully outfit the dungeon, making it even deadlier than it already is.

Unfortunately, he finds something else....

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.

Fantastic continuation of the series!

Great story and Narration! Our favorite earthman-abducted-by-aliens-turned-station-core returns and is at it again! Will Power Corp continue to pry into the business of Milton and his friends? Will more attacks on the dudgeon occur? Will there be more traps and Milton's mad-scientist-creatures? Will there be more Bloodthirsty Squirrels? YES! Yes there will. This was a fun story and a great continuation of the series. I can't wait for the next book.

Don't Poke the Bear!!!

Book two more widely opens the social dimension of this story on the interpersonal level: more adventurers are sent against Milton & his dungeon. To summarize: we continue with the same blend of action, humor, and above all -- discovery -- as in the first installment, though the scope of the storyline begins to widen as Milton's impact on the planet leads to repercussions that upset the economy and politic of the world he's stranded on. After much experimentation, dungeon building, and resource gathering, parties of enemy adventurers find their way to the dungeon to threaten Milton's existence. At the same time, resource gathering leads to accidentally poking a figurative (and partly literal) bear -- an opponent far above Milton's level to handle. Additionally, we finally have a murky scene with the Schemer, the true enemy of the series. The main flaws are consistent throughout the series: the need for an editor to clarify imprecise language (e.g. "gracefully offered" as opposed to "graciously offered") and to smooth over redundancies. The practice of having subchapters of stats when a new creature or person is introduced makes navigating the Audible by chapter darned near impossible. I wish Audible consistently labeled chapter titles -- the author did so originally. In summary: yes; you should continue this series. Book two is where the story begins to really take off, and we're introduced to far more of the main cast and also get our feet wet regarding the magic system. I was kindly given codes for all five books in this series, and my honest review is my way of giving back. Thank you.

"Holy Dungeon, Quizards!"

Not sure I can say enough about this book and the series so far. Brooks makes me want to live in this world, with powers of course. And Meili makes me want to be friends with the characters. After the cliffhanger ending of the first book we come right back to our MC, Melvin, and his group. As their levels are continuing to grow there is just non-stop enemy after enemy coming into the dungeon. If you thought the cliffhanger was big at the end of book 1, it is just a stair step compared to this book. This story/series is just one of the many reasons I love LitRPG. If you like fantasy, dungeons and especially LitRPG you are going to love this book.

it just gets better

as a binge listener hard for me to review each book in a series but i can say if you liked the first book the second one just gets better as Milton works with more of the proctins sorry for spelling . an making them stronger for his battle to come. an each book from here on only gets better with more battles training an city building.

Enjoying This Series

I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review. The world and story are well thought out. The dungeon building and crawling are good. I liked the humor and budding romance as well. In this book, the Milton and his friends work to improve the dungeon by adding new creatures and traps and Brint explores the Quizzard Mountains with dungeon defenders. However, it seems they bite off more than they can chew as they face powerful monsters and powerful delvers. It was an enjoyable read, and I look forward to continuing the story in the sequels. If you liked the first book, you will like this one too.

"Bear with me."

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this review voluntarily. Milton has a horrible naming sense. Like, really, really horrible. But other than that the events of Quizard mountains are a good logical flow from the first book. It left me with some questions about what happened to the other people abducted to be put into the cores though. I hope it's answered in later books.

Glad i kept going

I started the series off and at first thought it was a little rocky the first part of the first book, but man it builds up and the story and characters are great. Def going to do the third one.

part 2, we get real dungeons

The station core of book one, milton, is trying to get better and defend himself from the locals as well. Luckily he finds help from some of the intelligent natives, but the monsters in the resource rich mountains are after them! Good narration, somewhat slow in the stat-parts.

Great story

Great story, a bit slow at parts, but other than that very good. Definitely worth the read. You really get to know the characters, even the side characters!

An excellent progression from book 1

Having listened to book 1 as an early foray into this genre I was excited to see the progression of the story & characters. I wasn’t disappointed. Although I was initially expecting a more space & universe traversing Station Core I was still happy with the dungeon based storyline progression. The pace of this book ramps up a couple of notches and kept me engaged & entertained to its conclusion. I especially liked the way the author brings in characters that you can empathise with & despise with equal measure. The narrator does an excellent job and is a pleasure to listen to. Onto book 3 - Great job Jonathan & Miles

i like the book but...

I like the plot of the series and love the character developments i even like the stats but i just can't get over the cursing. like there are Full sentences of cursing. this is a good book but for some people some like me that amount of cursing is a no-no. esp for an audiobook. but i would still read it and recommend it because it is a great book with a great story. however, sorry although it was a great performance and the plot is good, i would probably stick to Reading this than Listening to it. will probably enjoy it that way. so if you are not averse to cursing like a pirate/trucker and you like Dungeon Litrpgs that involves stats(i love those) you would love this book series. Just try it!

Not as good as book 1

This book is a down grade from book 1. The fact that the main caricature was picked as one of the world's best games? he sucks and just seems like he not bothered until what ever big thing happened next and the same goes for his new best mate. I'm going to give book 3 a go and I'm hoping that it's not all about another core that make army's for him to stumble his way through.

Series expands nicely in this second instalment

This is the second book in the series and you would lose a lot if you jumped into the series at this point. This book does a good job of building on the foundations of the first one, increasing the challenges for the dungeon core and expanding the main cast quite nicely. Unlike the first book, you do not have any significant time skips as the series seemingly reached the main time period it would focus on by the end of book one. One slight negative for me is the way the stats are presented, while they are skippable in theory (doesn't work for hands-off listening), it does seem like the flow of the book would be better if the focus was on the significant changes. The narrator does another good job with an increasing cast of characters and helps to enhance the book. Overall, a strong follow-up that draws the listener further into this series. [Note - I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.]

Great series - much recommended.

This series continues to delight - I love its different approach (at least to what I’ve read previously) and in particular the humour the author brings to story and its characters who start to feel likely family. Highly recommend this series, it’s a great listen!

GameLit with a survivial slant

I enjoyed the first book in this series, and enjoyed this one more. It's a well told and well performed story. I particularly like the rationale used to get the stats system into the world. It fits, and is a clever justification. Since this is a GameLit book about what is somewhat a survival/resource management game, the pacing reflects that, rather than high action, but that makes it feel like a gentle read, rather than seeming slow. Definitely a series that I would recommend to fans of the genre.

Too many stats not enough story

This book is about 50% stats if not more It not only ruins it but destroys any flow. Would not recommend. Even though he warns of stats he also states that the we’re supposed to be mostly removed. And that is not the case
