The Dark Continent

Alexey Osadchuk

Eric Bergman used to be treated like an outcast, cripple and freak. Some pitied him, others squirmed in his presence, while others still mocked him to his face. He himself even thought he was born cursed by the gods. But bit by bit, all that changed. That which was once considered a flaw or defect transformed into an advantage. And Eric slowly learned to use it to his benefit.

Eric and his friends escape Master Chi’s Hive, journey over the orcish steppe and through the Stone Forest, which tempers them and makes them a lot stronger.

During his travels, Eric discovers that his elder brother never went to the Wastes, and that his parents were lied to about what happened to him. Eric promises himself to uncover the truth about his long lost brother.

Beyond that, the more he encounters the grim heritage of the Order of Monster Hunters, the more he realizes just how perilous a game the foxman has drawn him into.

Moving through the borderlands toward his home city no more than a few days ahead of the orcish Horde, Eric still has yet to guess that his adventure is just getting started.



Eric and his friends no sooner extricate themselves from one tough situation then they find themselves in another one, and another, and another! They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and that's certainly true in this case, as the unlikely companions continue to grow in power through adversity. And it's their progress, as well as the victories they win along their challenging road, that keeps these books from becoming too bleak. All in all, "The Dark Continent" is another solid entry in the series. and I'm looking forward to more.


So this book continues the running fun. No rest for the weary. Our intrepid MC is always a battle away from doom. These book present a harsh and unforgiving world where betrayal is common and loyalty is rare. I can't fault the hero's apathy towards hard up strangers even if it bothers me. He is however a genuinely good soul and he does help some people in distress. I can't wait for him to return and rain destruction in those who have betrayed and blackmailed him. I can't wait for more. This series is a fun and exciting read. Hope the author is hard at work for more.


Just finished reading and I'm already impatient for the next installment. What a story! What a world! A masterfully crafted tale, and one I'm very glad came out, helps make this social distancing a lot more bearable


The only thing i found disappointing about the book is that i finished it too quick. I am very excited to see where the next book is going to take the series and i eagerly await the next release.
