Summary

Ryan has died, been reborn as a dungeon core, defeated a necromancer, and made a number of friends along the way. Life, well un-life, is good. 

However, everything changed when the demons attacked. With his dungeon town in danger and cultists scheming in the shadows, Ryan must decide whether to draw upon the darker side of his own nature - unlocking powers far greater than anything he has accessed before. 

Something his new dungeon fairy seems suspiciously excited about. With his favorite adventurer, Blake, slowly accepting his new powers as a Specter of Balance, Ryan learns being a darkness dungeon means a lot more than just bones, zombies, and skeletal fight club. Apparently, the power granted by God of Death encompasses much, much more. 

Unfortunately, Ryan learns the hard way that some things should remain dead....

a fun read and tries to move away from it's Piers

ok there was a lot in common in the first book with the Devine dungeon serious and there is nothing wrong with that but this book tries to move away from that and tries to do it's own thing and it dose in a way , I am looking forward to the next installment

Perfect now

I had previously said that the sound effects ruined the listening experience in the first audiobook but this audiobook had a good balance of sound and story.

I look forward to the next book.

The excellent adventure continues :)

Not quiet as good as the first book but still a great adventure.
The voice acting is good, the story is excellent.

The only complaints about the book are personal ones, not liking certain new characters.

A Solid Second Edition with Bone(us) Puns

This second book in the series takes all the good from the first and adds more to the story, the characters, and the world they inhabit. The author does well to build on the individual stories for each character, getting the audience invested in each one. The author also shows his continued love for puns both figurative and quite often literal. The only negative I can see is that the narrator tries a bit too hard to put emphasis in his words in an effort to show intensity in battles. It comes through a little over the top at times. Overall a great performance though. Give the author a hand (because he takes so many from characters) and give this sequel a try.

decent, but annoying

why are characters whiny bitches sometimes? and why does the narrator growl unnecessary all the time??? like the phrase "the stone had a red tinge" does not need extra emphasis. should've just had Jeff Hayes do all the voices.

Good story, very repetitive

I’m not sure if this author has a 5yr or thinks his audience is 5 but this book might be better off listed in the young adult category. The main reason is that for every single action any character takes the history and reasons behind those events are explained over an over again like the listener can’t remember anything about the characters or story. It ruins his world building and the listener’s immersion. It would be better if he just told the story and assume we can keep up.

i really wanted to like this but....

OK I know the dungeon is not smart but dear God did he drop the ball so hard all the stars of the of the review fall out.

Do you know when old TV shows felt like the ratings were falling they would add in that new character to spice things up and it would just dig the grave so far down that the show would get canceled that’s how I feel about the new fairy

Great story line and great narrators.

SBT and Jonathan Smidt make an excellent team for this series. I have enjoyed both books in this series and I look forward to the next releases. I'm hoping the author can get up to one book every three months at least. We need good authors in this genre.

Broke my suspension of disbelief

I like the first book and was excited by the new one. I was interested in the development of the dungeon, but once I got around the point where he listened to a clearly bad character to break a promise to his partner, i stopped the book and most likely won't pick it back up. The main character might not be the smartest, he isn't this dumb either. The new character added is clearly someone you shouldn't entertain their ideas.

Great dungeon core gamelit

I really liked this story. I started on book two and did not listen to book one. I think I would have liked it a lot more if I had the whole story. That being said it was extremely enjoyable even without the whole story

Fantastic!

Great story and narration!

Ryan the dungeon core is back, and ready for more skeletal fight club! but demons are starting to show up, and necromancers and chaos cultists have been stirring up trouble. The life of a dungeon is about to get complicated.

Soundbooth Theater did a wonderful job with the narration, and really brings the story to life!

I really enjoyed this audiobook, and can't wait to find out what happens next!

keeps getting better

Ryan the core now gets a new fairy that could be good or bad an continues to expand his dungeon with more interesting mobs to challenge the adventures that dive into his dungeon an he still enjoys his favorite divers an still has Skelton fight club going an enjoys it with his fairy. gets more in depth with blake an his family i say that since in the diver groups think of them selves as a family an ryan does come out to communicate with blake an his party. tends to help them out an they also help ryan out as in the first book

Annoying Drama and Dumb Decisions

I was close to dropping the book after the dungeon started making stupid decisions that just snowballed into issues for the rest of the book and caused annoying dungeon/fairy drama.
