Publisher's Summary

It's lasagna time!

After successfully ranking up together with the rest of the Happy Sunflowers, Arek and his party are ready to kick back and enjoy some much needed relaxation. However, they can't can't seem to stay out of trouble for long. After mistakenly angering a ruthless guild, they are forced to flee Riverfall.

They set off for Red Mount, hoping to wait out the storm, but an even greater threat lies in wait for them. Arek's old life threatens to spill out into his new one as the magical runes he had destroyed slowly gain power once more, but he's determined to keep cooking for those in need—even if it costs him everything.

Book two in the Morcster Chef series is here. Join Arek on another adventure against unexpected enemies and burnt crust.

About the series: A fantasy/LitRPG lite series with a unique cooking twist. It contains status windows and other RPG elements, but it is not set within a video game. It will appeal to anyone that enjoys a slice-of-life fantasy about a group of adventurers as well as fans of Food Wars!

This novel also contains real recipes, and we highly recommend you give them a taste if you're hungry!

I love this book! And I need the next book!

I love, love, love this gamelit book! Actus, put us back into the Into the Fire where Cleaver's Edge left off! And I mean right back into it, as the team (The Happy Sunflower adventuring team) are just finishing up their celebratory meal for a job well done... Arek's magic has come back and he's afraid of it, what it'll do to him, what it could turn him into! So confronted with this dilemma they decide to cook and eat some more 😆 yay, more recipes!
Actus walks a fine line between stats and recipes... between fighting off monster hordes and cooking and Actus does it perfectly! How amazing is that!
So get the book to find out what's going on! And why I grin every time the Happy Sunflower team has'ta announce themselves... every time Peter Berkrot has'ta say it! Need I say it... I Need the next book

One Thing Leads to Another

The story starts right away after book 1. Arek has a Doomsday Clock within the Runes on his body from the Dungeon Portal. He is worried about losing control and possibly giving into his magic. The Runes on his body match the dungeon portal as well as Ming’s eyes. What had the dungeon portal done to him and Ming? The Happy Sunflowers are warned that the recent betrayal within the adventuring guild is not over and that the conspiracy goes deeper than was thought. Magus tells them to be on their toes, even some of the guild not in on the conspiracy might wish to cause them harm to keep the discord within the guild out of the public’s eye.

Before leaving town, The Happy Sunflowers decide to hit the auction house. They start to see some oddities at the auction house. The auctioneer seems to get upset when others out bid the high floors. Arek bids a hundred gold for a recipe from Yuri. They decide to bid on their own items to make the people trying to buy everything pay through the nose for their items. After the auction, they quickly

More adventure, Less cookbook

Well, at least it was, until the last 2 hours or so of the book where it turned into Food Wars.

Anyways. The Narration is great. The story proceeds similar to the previous novel. We get some nice character progression, but it felt like the story lacked a bit. the characters tend to languish in one area or another for a while each time. There was definitely still some cooking, but not as much, but they made up for it with that ending. I have to be honest, I skipped a lot in those sections, listening to recipes and cooking instructions really isnt my thing. And then Eric said one of the dumbest things I've heard. "The majority of cooking is following your recipe." Yeah. I dunno. I really like the character power levels being on a percentage scale, but I'm tired of Fantasy cookbook. I'm also not quite sure how this is a LitRPG either? It's pretty fantasy.

Not as good as the first one

More recipes than more recipes very little story. The recipes in the first one didn’t overshadow the story as much as they do in this one the book is largely just one big how to cook whatever recipe they’re on at that point in the book. The story itself is still pretty good but maybe 3-4 hour of the entire book is actually story , most of the rest I kid you not is actually one big how to cook.

Another well written & enjoyable read/listen

Into the Fire: A LitRPG Fantasy Cooking Adventure (Morcster Chef, Book 2), my second read/listen from Actus. Picking up seamlessly from the first book, an enjoyable read, especially for fans of LitRGG. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. I also own the Kindle version and was able to read along while being read to. I look forward to my next read from this author. I especially enjoyed the narrative talents of Peter Berkrot whose voice again made an enjoyable book even better. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Hungering for more

There are so many fantasy books out there these days. so many books about some hero going around smiting bad guys while up holding truth and justice. This is not one of those. This is a book about people. Not that the characters are unjust or cruel, but that they are people. People who stumble into trouble and do their best, who have passions and regrets. I care about the characters because they feel like real people, and I'm interested in what happens to them. Not that the plot is uninteresting, but when a story can carry itself on characters alone I always feel like commending it.
