Eric has survived where people much stronger than him have found their deaths. And not just that: he's managed to activate his magic supply, tame one of the most dangerous dungeon monsters, find the ancient city of monster hunters and rescue Jay, the girl abandoned by the scouts in Gulper's lair.
He left the Dungeons of the Crooked Mountains behind him. Now his path leads him to Orchus where our freshly-minted mage intends to finally free himself of his debt-repayment oath.
But as soon as Eric and Jay descend into the valley, they discover that the local barons have been attacked by young Corwin's men who have swept through their neighbors' estates, pillaging and plundering.
This makes Eric's task all the more difficult: he has to return to his home city without ending up in his enemies' clutches. You'd think his natural cautiousness and the acute instincts of his pet Gorgie would make this journey a walk in the park - but fickle Lady Luck has her own ideas... Once again Eric is being pulled into a bloody vortex of dangers.
Audio book will be released March 10, 2020
If you haven't read the first book, i'd suggest you get that one first as this one starts right as that one ended. This story we add more side characters to the story and it expands on the story a bit more. We learn more about the "monster hunter" order we encounter in the first book and the MC grows into a better character in this one as well. Can't wait for book 3.
I like the MC a lot and the choices he has made stayed true to character. His new ally is a great addition and the way he is filling out the group is very well done. Keep up the good work.
A main character that keeps thriving under the most difficult conditions; new and interesting sidekicks to accompany Eric on his path to strength; a fleshed out but simple style of worldbuilding, with a few twists thrown in to surprise and amuse the reader. I’m a fan.
I love how this litrpg is different then most others. The beginning caught me off guard then then it pick up very quickly. Cant wait for the next book and see what happens to the mc.
It was a great entry into the series, I am looking forward to what’s going to happen when the next book is released.
