Publisher's Summary

The System has taken the Earth, but all is not lost. 

With the advantage of the mix-up of starting in the Dungeon, Randidly has been able to found a Village for survivors to gather. With their growing forces, they’ve begun to nurture other outposts of humanity, teaching them the hard-earned lessons he paid for in blood and sweat.   

Yet the tests thrown at them by the System are not yet done.   

The Village’s tribulation lurks in nearby Turtletown, fleeing a direct confrontation and wearing many faces. Hordes of monsters gather, preparing to strike when they least expect it. Most worryingly, unsavory characters begin to emerge from amongst the survivors, taking advantage of the chaos to benefit themselves.   

Amidst this storm, a message comes from Shal. Randidly's teacher needs his assistance to protect the legacy of his family. With the help of Lyra Silver, he hatches a daring plan to finally catch the slippery Tribulation, once and for all.   

Because even if it takes him to an alien world and requires him to trust the safety of the Village to other survivors, Randidly Ghosthound always pays his debts.   

Book 2 of the hit LitRPG Fantasy series with over 50 Million views on Royal Road is here! 

About the series: Experience a particular flavor of LitRPG/GameLit, where Skill growth and the Path System allow individuals to tailor their growth toward infinite possibilities. There are Classes, Skills, Levels, and Rarities that will feel familiar to any connoisseur of role-playing games. Follow Randidly as he balances his growing power with the worrisome ripples of his existence. The System doesn’t discriminate; when he is ready for more dangerous threats, the rest of humanity better be ready, too.

So I did some research after the 1st book came out

Evidently the author isn't just hopping onto the bandwagon, from what I gather he was actually was on RoyalRoad waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay b4 a bunch of the other books we've seen come from that site. And you'd be really surprised how many fantasy books on audible started out on Royal Road.

Anyways, it turns out Randidly is an OG, this story was ahead of its time, and it looks like the authors missed the memo about converting from web novel to Kindle/Audible. So a bunch of other ppl made the conversion earlier, and if u didn't know any better Randidly can look like a less good copycat of books like "He Who Fights Monsters" or "Defiance of The Fall" ...when in fact if anything they were influenced by Randidly.

My theory is that Randidly changed the game ...everybody who's played the game since has had the benefit of seeing it done b4. So other authors have been able to refine some of these concepts and build on them since Randidly came out. With that in mind its not surprising that its not as polished as these other stories. Also, a lot of these guys are self-published and they just had an idea and started off as amateur writers. Truthfully, Puddles4263 is perfectly competent, the writing itself isn't bad. Its the organization, and and some of the choices of tone that detract from it IMO.

Anyways, I'm glad the author is getting some credit and the opportunity to make a buck all these years later. That said, the final product isn't as good and the story kinda fumbles around a bit. But when this book was written it was exploring new ground, and doing things that had never been done b4 ...so give credit, where credit is due.

Too much introspect

Way, way too much introspection and self reflection. The book centers more on training than actually progressing the story line. And I found several decisions the author took with the main characters absurd. I really enjoyed the first book but this one seriously disappointed.

Worth a listen, but this is kind of a filler book.

I like the vision, this book definitely dipped into some deeper magical mechanics, and did have shining moments of character development. That said, there was a lot of training in this book. In this whole book, I would say that there is only two moments that felt like they had any significants to the greater plot, rather than just having the MC be outclassed in fightings I wasn’t invested in, then go off and train, only to fight someone (again) who is much stronger, and lose

seriously

I'm here for randidly. Not some other point of view used as a crutch for shoddy writing. stick to the damn story. authors nowadays planing book six while book 2 falls flat. its a good premise but unfortunately you are following the fad of every other author now, romance struggle, struggle to make obvious choices. and my least favorite setting up false cliff hangers so as to switch to a different perspective. and lira is just garbage. shes so needy. and seriously lets gets some story momentum the first book was good great in fact then the money hits and the second book is crap.

I liked it a lot

My once fear for this series was/is that they'll keep introducing characters that don't go anywhere. And for the most part that doesn't happen. The story is centered around Randidly and we only really meet people if he does. We don't bounce between narratives. For me at least that helps the story tremendously. My only complaint is I feel like more could happen for how long the book is. Other than that I'm really enjoying the series and am excited for the next installment.

Overly dramatic

Everytime MC gets in a fight with someone they have to have a conversation first. then take a break half way through the fight to have another one. and finally a third one at the end. Just STFU and fight. The conversations are also basic anime crap. Thats not even counting them stopping to stare at one another dramatically. The narrator was good in everyway except the voice for MC. I gave him 4 stars.

Randidly the Immoral

Randidly for whatever reason the author chose decides to become a murderer of innocent people. All of the preceding ethical dilemmas were pointless because he decided power is all that matters. I have no interest in one dimensional characters with no morals. Why would the author decide to take this route as most people can't relate to the MC now. Also, the story doesn't really go anywhere. Basically the entire plot revolves around getting skills and leveling those skills up to gain more power. Some older skills are almost completely forgotten or disregarded. Side characters are one dimensional and boring as well. The narrator does an excellent job.

good buuuuut

I like this story and the MacLeod did a fantastic job as narrator. my issue though is that most of the book was spent training to be as good as a classes instead of just getting a class. as the story went on his excuse for not getting a class became flimsy at best. just let the guy class up and become truly op.

Not really a story

Its basically a skill book talking about the negligence of a dumbass struggling to learn about his skills. Literally no story. Just pad time explaining skills and how ether feels…
That on top of the author forcibly continuing to make his MC self destruct by being stupid is just lazy writing. I felt it would improve from book 1 but i see he double downed instead.

A let down compared to book one.

This series is going to suffer the same fate as most others in the genre, too many damn characters most of which are so two dimensional and vapid you just won't care about them they are just fluff filling the time, there is way to much involvement in the base building I thought the point was to leave once it was self sufficient..., story ceases all progression until over half way through as the 10 hours I have made it through have been one very long training arc with R not leaving the starting village for anything meaningful other than to throw a tantrum or two, the character sheet readouts are ridiculously long like I mean in some cases a whole chapter especially our protagonist this seriously needs abreviating, all in all our protagonist is an unlikable self conscious cry baby, the supporting cast are likewise unlikable, I don't think I will waste another credit should book 3 be released.

Great performance however but a voice cannot compensate for bad writing.

Mediocre beginning, but good overall

The narrator is absolutely amazing!

Story wise - in my opinion it was a very frustrating first half where the focus keeps jumping around to different characters and leaves you hanging in an unpleasant way. Not done to my taste, at least. Otherwise, enjoyable! Second half seems better, more thought out, to me.

Also the fact that his soul plants are completely disregarded is annoying. This, along with a couple of other things that feel forced or pushed to the sides, can be noticed and bring some annoyance. I prefer to think that the author is trying new things and so it will get better!

I liked the fact that the author is aware of the huge block of skills and does not repeat the whole character sheet a lot.

All in all, despite my negative points above, the story is nice, especially the second half. The events of the first half aren't that boring/bad (saw other reviews mentioning training montage referring to the first half etc.) , perhaps just the approach when it came to the different perspective of the characters.

good sequal

this builds well on the story from book 1 it starts of a bit slow focusing on the world building (not a bad thing) but once the storyline starts progressing it advances quickly although sometimes i feel the time skips go to fast and we are just expected to know how the mc advanced during these times with no explaination other than a character sheet readout
overall a hood book and looking forward to book 3

The first was very good, this one is lacking

The sequel does not advance in the speed like the first. I find myself skipping chapters to the end. The Narrator is still brilliant. Hope the 8next book will be a bit like the first

Frankly, Embarrassing.

First, I like the core of the story. I've always been a fan of system apocalypse books, and this series had a promising start - until the protagonist started meeting other characters.
It seems like other characters only exist to fawn over the protagonist in a VERY transparent way - this has become even more apparent in book 2.
The story has transitioned from interesting to an obvious self-insert fantasy. There could still be an interesting story under all of this, but it is ruined by it's lacklustre characters. There is never a thought in any female characters head that doesn't involve Randidly in some way.

I'd skip this one if I were you.

I LOVE this story except for ONE thing. A big one.

I find myself being driven insane by listening to randidlys skill/stat list being read out. It's gotten to the point I'm thinking about dropping the audiobook and instead reading it so I can easily skip it.

Excellent

One of the best litrpg series I’ve read in a long while. Great characters with actual depth.
The story is interesting and even without the litrpg elements would make for a good series.
Long live the Ghosthound.
