Publisher's Summary

He's tried to ignore them for too long.

But the long-simmering conflict between Montana's holding at Coggeshall and the Night Goblins who also occupy the valley is about to boil over.

Usually, goblins aren't anything to write home about: an enemy without much size, intellect, or weaponry. But these goblins? Well, that's just not the case.

These are goblins with limitless resources, never-before-seen tactics, and horrifying monsters at their disposal. Worst of all, they don't fear death in the slightest.

They just might force a good guy to become what he has always struggled to defeat.

Killing Them Awfully is chaotic warfare, nonstop battles, and more monsters with digestive issues than totally necessary. Ready? Let's go to war!

Another pointless filler book

I like the storytelling of Eric Ugland. This, however, is another pointless filler book. You might as well replace “fiends night” with “goblins” from the last book. While the action can be fun, when the main plot is stagnant - it makes a bad overall story. Let’s break it down.

First, Eric writes about a LOT of things that are completely ignored in this book. Not just things from previous books, but this book alone. In the first few chapters, there is a number of times that it is mentioned that Montana should check his notifications and quests. And that doesn’t happen. While there is a step forward with the egg - it is pointless to the plot (again). The magic building is ignored again. He got a bag of gifts, clearly some “power-ups” that go along with the other potions that Montana has in the vault. Again, ignoring skill and stat bonuses that could increase his or his companion’s ability.

But it isn’t just Eric writing Montana as a complete moron in not using the tools he has available, but a magic force of witches is ignored. A huge force of magical brownies is ignored. Every now and then we see mentions of these support characters, even demonstrating how strong the centaurs are in keeping a battle line. But when the battle is there… no centaurs eh?

And now, let’s talk about how Eric COMPLETELY ignores the plot of the world he has built. You can take the last two books and strike them from the series and it won’t make a difference to the main plotline.

So. Does Montana grow in character? Do we at least get the “LitRPG” growth that other books in this genera rely on? Do any of the side characters have growth? Does the community have development? No. Not at all.

If anything, Montana is getting stupider and whiner. I’ve never read a book review where someone said, “I loved the incompetent whiney lead character!”

This is a series that is starting to slide into “skip it.” I do enjoy Eric’s writing and I like his ideas. Unfortunately for everyone, if you read the reviews about the next book currently in print. It sounds like book 12 is another pointless filler book. So if you have not bought this book or are looking into the series, I suggest you wait until book 13. If it turns out good, then invest in books 10, 11, and the upcoming 12 and 13. You’ll end up with a 32-hour book with a ton of filler and hopefully a strong end.

Montana has a total lack of cognitive ability.

The MC stumbles from crisis to crisis and forgets basic things that would have helped immensely... Where is the magic building he can activate? What were his bounty for the demons he slew? Why did he forget to reset his spawn point?

His commander shows incompetence and every one of his other lieutenants tells him that she is in over her head but he just shrugs and lets her get a big portion of his army killed...

Some basic cognitive ability would serve here.

tired

After 11 books you might think there would be some character development. It's the same jokes over and over to the point that the MC is the joke and it's not funny just annoying.

So. Much. Whining.

Ugland needs to take a break and reset this storyline. He cant rely on Neil to carry this floundering installment.

MC too dumb

If the MC doesn’t use all of his power up stuff and boons then I might be over this series. I can’t suspend disbelief that the MC is that dense, at this point it’s just a lazy author. I have 3 hrs left in the book we’ll see if this is a worthy series. I’ll leave the 2 star review because I’m letting the book run while I write this just hoping the story takes a turn for the intelligent. Lazy author.

Rubbish!

I'm returning this book, this series has become a money grab. It's such a shame, I've stuck to this series for 2 years, the last 5 books have been complete rubbish.

Same as previous titles

I am starting to get a little bored with this series. Montana doesn't seem to have any real character progression between the books. He still goes off half-cocked every chance he gets and all the people around him constantly complain and belittle him for doing so. It is starting to get very predictable and old. I'm actually looking forward to the characters in this story dying off so hopefully new characters will be introduced that are more dynamic

Consistently incredible

Compared to most of the audiobooks I’ve listened to on audible (over 400 as of this review), this one may be on the shorter end of the spectrum but was absolutely wonderful to listen to from start to finish. At no point does you loose interest in it. I’ve finished it in a single day and loved every moment of it... the only thing I can think of wishing for is more! Quite possibly one of the best fights I’ve ever listened to in a book.

A great series but basically a mini book.

I love this series but the pace has dwindled to a crawl, and this is another short installment with very little progress. Hardly anything happens.
