Summary

At a glance, the dwarves and gnomes of the Horkensaft Kingdom are two peoples who are worlds apart. The former are seen as hardcore traditionalists hell-bent on maintaining the status quo, while the latter only look ever forward and upward as they grasp at the future with both hands. And yet, these two seemingly opposing cultures serve as a counter-balance to each other, creating a civilization that draws upon the wisdom of the past to face new challenges. Whether that is actually the case or mere propaganda will soon to be put to the test, as they are about to receive a visit from the Hero of Chaos. The enigmatic herald of change has already fostered a well-deserved reputation for setting things in motion by their presence, and only time will tell if the Kingdom of the stout-folk will survive the impending transition.

Though, once again, Boxxy doesn't actually care what ripples it causes. It isn't there to upset society or challenge the stagnant culture of all-work-no-play. Its goal is to track down an errant treasure that escaped its grasp while it was out of commission, and maybe secure some new pieces for its ever-growing collection along the way. Before it has a chance to, however, it must first deal with a significant issue that threatens to undo much of its work since its arrival in Azurvale. It is a challenge unlike any it has faced, and not one that it can hope to solve easily through force and violence. The limits of Boxxy's patience and self-control are about to be tested, as it looks desperately for a way...to leave the house.

Boxxy is back, but where’s the story?

This is a difficult one to judge.
It’s 11hrs which is really short. The story feels like a filler and churned out. It’s basically a single Dungeon run.
On the good side it’s Boxxy and I can’t help but love the character and his misfit entourage.
It really misses a good story but nonetheless you get a taster of the good ole Boxxy charm so you stick with it.

Not so tasty

Sadly far too much unnecessary narration and not enough dialogue between the characters. The storyline was ok but this is not as humours as the other books

Once again nailed it!!

This is an excellent mature listen and Boxy is a honest to god true anti hero you can`t help but shout for. Another Sound-booth masterpiece with LOL moments. Can`t wait for the next installment. Just one of those series you hope never runs dry or ends.

Messed up but a great series

I’m enjoying these books…there is a good mix written into them. Nice to listen to something that you haven’t a clue where it’s leading.

Too much ambience and waaay to overacted

There is hardly any moment of calm. Almost every single second is filled with way to loud ambience or is in someway overacted to the point of being toe-curlingly cringe.

Bit dull and pointless

Nothing really happens in this one. Also the music and sound is all a bit too much too loud. Takes away from concentrating on the story and what’s actually happening.

enjoyable but not a masterpiece

i loved the other books in the series but this one.... its hard to say i hate it but i neither hate nor love it it provides a good continuation of the series, the addition of background effects and the addition adds a level of immersion iv scantily seen in other books.

in short:

its no hamlet or Romeo and juliet

but it tickles that itch of comedy , action and Lewd

Great but Too many spoilers for Fizzy’s book

Honestly I swapped to Fizzy’s book after getting half of it spoiled by this book. Read up until they sort of intersected about a storm. That’s the only detail I’ll say. Then swapped back and finished this one. Should have started with Fizzy I guess then swapped back and forth but it’s impossible to know what will be spoiled. Just swap when the storm comes up. Like immediately. Don’t finish the scene. Just swap. Oh and I really wish Soundbooth as talented and great as they are would get their app in order. It’s kinda horrible. But otherwise excellent job on recording and a cool addition to Boxxy’s story.

There's such a thing as to much background noise.

great story, great continuation of boxie doing ridiculous boxie shenanigans... but unfortunately this particular title at times has a distractingly loud amount of background noise that is hard to not get distracted by sometimes.

Series starting to drag

The series is starting to get repetitive and dragging on, there's only so many times it can hit the same few jokes on the same plot loop of Boxy getting in trouble, a overtop fight the likes of which never have been seen, then nothing. This one lacked anything really unique, no caramelldansen demon summoning, no question getting punted through the walls, not even multiple nut arrows, it felt, everything was just a joke made in a previous book reiterated. As for the narration it's ok, often times the music drifts on after it stops matching the scene only to randomly stop a few minutes later, the voices from the same person are slowly getting more or less the same.

? What happened.

I think this book is one of those one offs that just isn’t at the same quality as the rest of a series.

First of the boxy books I couldn’t wait for it to be over. Not sure what happened. Also the sound effects were annoying in some places.

Like they just said hmmm let’s throw something random here.

Overall quality of this book compared to the others in the series was subpar.

Short changed

The book was great, and the story followed the rest of the series as well, but it feels like half a book. I feel a bit jipped paying full price for half a book.

like many others have stated

the background noises are far too loud. there's time you can barely focus on the narration over the sounds in the background, especially in dungeon. the story I feel has moved more back towards the boxxy we know and love vs the previous book (though I don't understand the sudden influx of "snack time" when boxxy use to be against doing it too often. the increase in "reward time" with snack just doesn't follow his normal mindset. but honestly, that can just be seen as boxxy subconsciously being grateful for snack helping. my biggest complaint is the background noise volume. really hard to focus on the story while driving, when I have clinging and banging loud enough to rival the speakers.

Great story & narration, overwhelming sound effect

Look, I know some folks enjoy the "full audio experience" or whatever but I simply cannot stand these sound effects. They're distracting, annoying, and overwhelming. There are times you can't hear the actual words over them. The story and narration remain top notch, as always. I just REALLY wish there were an option for no sound effects.

Best Series Ever

Seriously. Don’t change a thing- the audiobooks are worth the wait. The writing is amazing, story is great, characters are great, Jeff is great (despite the end of this book)….Please, don’t let anyone tell you to “speed it up,” or “tone it down” in any way.

Thanks for making such a great and entertaining series.
