Publisher's Summary

A wise man once said that as one increased their wealth, so, too, would they increase their problems. Well, it was something like that.

Alex - a.k.a. Jack Alltrades - just wanted to play a game and make some money for himself and his family. After a string of incredible luck and a few wise decisions, he finds himself responsible for an entire company based in the game. It's not all rainbows and gold coins, though. Real life threats, angry NPC merchants, and shady deals with the elves and dwarves are giving Jack a massive headache.

Can he keep All Trades, Inc. out of the red? Will his past catch up to him, or can he buy his way into a new life? And how many golems does it take to screw in a light bulb? Join the continuing high-margin adventures of Jack Alltrades and find the answers to these questions...and more!

Reader changed but I think he did really well

Good story again. Ive had a few books where changing the reader can be really jarring and be too much of a change to even feel like the same story.

But i feel like the new reader does a good job reading the characters and the overall story in the same way. It’s a noticeable difference but I think only one or two chars changed enough to feel like someone different.

Great reader and story really wish it were longer.

I enjoyed this series so far. I find it to be written Very similar to The Land series, with humor and pop culture refrences dashed in.. My only criticism would be how quickly the story progresses. It feels slighty rushed and the book length reflects that. Overall I enjoyed the book and Nick's preformance here's to hoping that future novels in the series expand the content per book.

Great book

I do recommend this book. The reason why is you don’t have to deal with all the extra filler. He gets to the point days go by and things do happen but it’s a way different book in the way of it’s not all action venture excitement killing etc. But that’s the reason why I like instead of it being all about the one character being a spell sword. He has done the different jobs but it’s about business making money and still being in a litRPG world.

One Gripe

There is a scene where Jack gets a quest to do something, he then ignores it, later the quest is brought up again, and he acts like it's new information that he hadn't already promised to do. Only big issue I had.

Is it over?

If he stops right now with the story it is a good ending. It was a good book. I guess he can continue to grow if there is a next book so I'll probably buy it.

Even Better!

I really enjoyed the first book and I was excited to see where it went and I was not disappointed!

I also think Eric really knocked the narration out of the park! I can’t wait for book 3!!

Great book! bad audio book

compared to the first audio book in this series. this is severely lacking. the talents of nick phodel are Sorely missed when it comes to this great second chapter in Jack alltrades life. the story is once again amazing. I just find it's preformed by someone imitating the previous narrator. he does it well. but just feels off

Excellent addition to the series, good narration

I found the story engaging and uplifting. Good fun with some bonus light emotional involvement. Narration was great, timing and voices were varied as was the tone, everything I look for in an audio book. Good value for money. Looking forward to more works from Shane Walker and Eric Summerer.
