Publisher's Summary

Life was simpler when someone was around to tell him what to do. With a band of Adventurers looking to him for direction, whether he likes it or not, Trent Embra needed to figure out how to lead them.

But how was he supposed to lead when there were so many things Trent hadn’t figured out for himself?

An unidentifiable seed in his Storage, and whispers in his head, Trent points his team west towards the wilds. It was as good a direction as any. Maybe in uncivilized lands, Trent would learn what it meant to be an Adventurer and sort through what mattered most.

we're is the action and adventure

seriously though I'm 8 hours or 10 hours and and there has been very little action or Adventure they've talked so much this book and nothing important has happened. it has been two day in world and it's taken 10 hours and nothing really has happen. I'm past halfway through the book and it Is frustrating to listen to it I'm thinking of stopping here.

We go west...just not this book.

The very beginning of this book feels out of placed and this book tries to smooth out the wrinkles that it created. Progress is made with other characters outside of Trent, but Trent somehow gains a weird and basically annoying ability that doesn't reveal anything to Trent just to drain loot. We left off book 3 that cliff hangs us that the next adventure will be West, but this book stalls that progress for a new character.

the story stalls out

the story completely stalls out.. then tries to fluff the story with pointless sidetracking. maybe the series uses this one to build on and it betters the series in the long run but pretty disappointed.

Disappointing Book in Series

I enjoyed the first two books in this series and looked forward to listening to this one. Unfortunately, it didn’t deliver. The author jumped to new characters without me seeing how they tied to the original characters and storyline. There was a lot of status statistics thrown in, which led me to believe them only to be filler words. There is a lot of alluding to a Great War coming and I figure that somehow Trent will be the one person to determine its outcome. Sigh. Too bad the editor didn’t ask this author to rewrite this book. Now I am no longer interested in the series.

This one is a dud

While I have enjoyed this series quite a lot, this installment left me disappointed.
There was considerable amount of time spent in character development, but the whole book felt like the characters were running in place.
I hope book 5 is much, much better.

85% filler.

I'm at chapter 28.. I've skipped 8 chapters so far. Filler and unnecessary side stories that ARENT funny... like what's up with that chick's literally 10 minute rant about hiring circus performers to get the dudes white clothes dirty???

I keep waiting for this story to develop.

as I listen to more and more of the books in this series, one lingering thought remains. when is the story going to develop into more than just dungeon after dungeon. there are glimpses of a life outside of dungeons, but the main character just basically goes from dungeon to dungeon and all the small world building that is happening does not move the story on enough. I like the main character, I like several the as a matter of fact. but I'm getting bored with the wash, rinse and repeat of trial dungeons. this is book 4 and throughout the last three books there have been small glimpses of world building but they never have a payoff. The writer spends more time on the dungeons and almost nothing on anybody else in this world. which is getting very redundant. I'll probably listen to the next book, but if I'm not seeing anything besides dungeon after dungeon, it will probably be the last.

The bad reviews are true

This was a waste of credits. There is no direction to the plot , lots of ridiculous conversations that are pointless . No action. Just a lot of boring dribble . Author should avoid rushing to publish half barked work. This is certainly my last book in the series, I am getting of this pointless story . The spark in first book is missing .Don’t waste your credits.

worst one yet

Not a lot happening other than what Trent creates with the seed, just info dump and when finally they enter a trial we tet to see how annoying and unreliable his teammates are with how they just want to rush and skip all the possible rewards it was really frustrating hope book 5 is better than this

Fantastic series

Fantastic series!
Got the first book for free with my membership and did not hold much hope for it but I’ve just blown through the whole series in no time at all could not stop listening! Devastated there is not more out, looking at the release dates of 3 books in 2020 and one in 2022 I hope we will see more soon. 10/10 amazing.

lost its way

After the first books this feels like a step backwards.
A lot of information along with new characters have all been introduced. but it feels at the expense of the main storyline.
not sure about future installments

Loved it

Unlike the previous books, I really have no complaints that made it hard to listen at times. The book was great all the way through and I only wish the next book was already available.

So glad I found this series and I can't wait to see what happens in future releases.

I quit.

Absolutely unbelievable. I have read Fantasy & SF all my adult life but this book is so convoluted that it’s just incomprehensible. It has simply lost me and I’ve given up.
If I knew how to return this, I would. Enough.

love this series

all these books have been great, great listen/read, this book took a bit of a turn and the banter between trent and the team in this book had me laughing out loud at points, which made it so much more enjoyable and a better listen.

highly recommend

fantastic listen.

I'm not normally into this type of book. I found the first book for free on Audible and started it on a whim.

little did I know that the story was so well written that I got hooked on Trent and his friends. I recommend this series without hesitation.

Give it a go and you won't be disappointed.

NOW! Give me book 5!

Continued excellence

With solid writing, great characterisation, and a fascinating plot, this book continues to expertly weave the tail of Trent. I am so excited for the next one, the author can't write fast enough.
