Publisher's Summary

Build. Evolve. Conquer. Welcome to a whole new kind of Boss Battle....

Roark von Graf fought his way up from the bottom to become not only the Dungeon Lord of the Cruel Citadel, but the leader of the Troll Nation, making underhanded alliances with other dungeons and players along the way.

Until now, he’s only had to worry about his enemies attacking from inside the game. But Lowen, the Tyrant King’s right-hand man, has found a way to attack the players in league with Roark IRL, laying siege to the company that keeps Hearthworld’s servers running and capturing the very Devs who can take Roark apart byte by byte.

To stop Lowen and his Divine armies once and for all, Roark will have to drag the magics of the game into the real world, harness deadly new technologies, and build dungeons in places no Dungeon Lord has ever gone before.

The fate of Earth hangs in the balance. The duel between Dungeon Lords has begun. And one of them isn’t leaving Hearthworld alive....

From James A. Hunter - author of Bibliomancer, Shadowcroft Acadmey for Dungeons, and Viridian Gate Online - and eden Hudson, author of Path of the Thunderbird and Death Cultivator, comes the fifth installment in the best-selling Rogue Dungeon series!

Internally Inconsistent

The story was fine overall but was internally Inconsistent.
Previously one of the biggest problems the developers had was an inability to change or do anything with Rorick and the code he had interacted with.
This was either forgotten or ignored in order to take away a powerful artifact from him in this book. which was previously stated (repeatedly) to be immune to their tampering and incapable of being interacted with.
Minus the ignoring of previously important information for the pushing through of plot. it was still a fun story.

Rushed and inconsistent but alright

This book felt far more rushed and messy than the previous books. I liked it overall but many things are just kind of left to wonder about and quite a few inconsistencies popped up. Things like Roark getting the dragon transmutation and going to level 84 and then later in the book it saying he just hit level 71. The level for a changeling hitting level 10 and not being changed into yoteknar. The devs suddenly being able to change something about the world stone pendent when many times it was stated nothing to do with the worldstone could be affected in the code. Overall though, not a bad story. Nick does a fantastic job as the reader as always.

Nick Podehl - The Best of the Best

What a great read! Nick Podehl is best when he has good material and this is good material. Definitely for a young audience - but entertaining for adults — even adults who don’t game. Fun story/series and nice world building and Good characters with fun evolutions. I honestly was hoping for a true ending - instead (spoiler) we have more world building with the next evolution. The blending of all of all of the worlds/ dimensions is a nice twist at the end leaving everyone with uncertainty and questions. I’m “game” for one more book.

Good, but with inconsistancies.

Overall a good addition to the series with an interesting ending. The inconsistancies do kind of bug me, though. They're mostly minor things, but they're blatantly obvious.

For example, Randy not knowing Scott's name until halfway through the book, when he had initially tracked him down by his account and real name previously. Or the Transmutation ability requiring the target to be at least half the level of the core, but for some reason Roark needed to be lvl 70 to merge with Axol, who was 99. That merger raised him and his level cap to 84, but in the end fight with Lowen he's somehow only lvl 70 again.

These don't really make much of an actual difference to the story, but they're super sloppy mistakes that really should have been caught by one of the writers or an editor. Other than that, though, I'm looking forward to the next installment.

not as strong as the rest of the series

this book reads as if the authors had not been taking notes on their own work. like what levels a changeling can turn into certain kinds of trolls. or what's one of the main characters evolve into in the last book. it just seems like they didn't take as much time with this book to get things right
