Publisher's Summary

The goblin horde is coming, driven by a dark Sorcerer eager to drive the dwarven race into extinction.

Reborn as a dungeon core inside a fabled gem known as the Brisingstone, Bowen vows to use this new life to protect what is left of his people and avenge those who could not be saved.

With new-found powers, Bowen learns to create golems of stone and clay to act on his behalf. With half-remembered mining skills, Bowen rekindles the forge of his ancestors and, under the guidance of his new Dungeon fairy, teaches his golems to create metal automatons of war.

In a race against time, Bowen and Freya, his new dungeon fairy, must fend off incursion, rescue survivors and defend the dwarfish homeland. Because if they fail...the dwarves will be no more.

Horrible

Depressingly melodramatic, bemoaning every decision, everything is being described in extreme detail and the MC is a Moron that takes way to long to comprehend even the simplest if things.

meh.

Slow, boring. The scene where 6 finger shows up is especially annoying. His whiny voice is awful. The other goblin voices are nails on a chalk board. Freya is an idiot. They didn't learn anything.
And you can't make the reader suffer through characters being bullied or tortured, and make the bad guys that easy to hate, unless you're Protagonist is going to make them pay and deliver some kind of vengeance.

decent story but dumb characters

characters are just too stupid to live. the amount of times they go oh no I don't know what to do is ridiculous.

A Great book held back by editing

This is a great dungeon book held back only by the mighty need of a continuity editor. far too often I found myself thinking "Didn't they just say this in the last chapter? Are they repeating themselves just with slightly different language?" at other times things happened slightly out of order the characters reference something that doesn't occur until a little bit later.

Soooooo Slooowww

I was 4 hours in before the dungeon even made his first mob... like what? The characters acr like idiots having to go over the same stuff more than once and then say it a different way and then at the end summarize what they just went over....

The narrator was pretty good though.

a slow stroll through nitty gritty.

this is a crunchy in depth dungeon core book with sprinkles of outside world fun and overarching storylines. but it is VERY slow to start like a boulder on a hill when OT picks up speed it barrels along

good for the price

over all a good story. the fairy character was annoying as she seemed to me to be abusive/manipulative and often changed her position after the fact. so yes buy, just enjoy the good parts.

Solid dungeon core story

Solid entry into the dungeon core genre. The part involving the dungeon core and the adventurer make a decent story, but the goblin character was just whiny and didn't really help the story. I'll definitely pick up the next.

Narration was excellent except for how he said 'seconded' as 'sect-ended'.

Good book but needs warning. Other issues too.

I've liked the book and the genre it's in. however it needs a very dire warning

"Captain, quickly raise pun shields! Massive punpedos inbound!"
Other reviews are correct too. It needed a better editor. way to many contradictions every few chapters.

Dull and Slow

This story is unfortunately a poorly made pot of soup, consisting of random helpings from other works in the fantasy and dungeon core genres, without adding much of its own flavour.

The first chapter reads as a poor paraphrase of Tolkien's Moria and the rest of the story unfortunately doesn't really pick up much from there.
This story is slow, with far too much time spent on dialogue explaining dungeon core mechanics instead of showing them.

The character dialogue doesn't flow naturally, consists of numerous setting inappropriate word choices and needs editing.

There is little originality to found in the story's plot and the execution leaves much to be desired.

Due to this I can't really give comment on the narrator other than the accents and vocal clarity are pleasant enough, as the material isn't a good showcase for their skill.
