Summary

Expand the Dungeon.
Dredge up Allies.
Prepare for the Coming Storm.  

As Kai masters his abilities, he also struggles to keep up with the daily demands of his new, scaly charges. With the responsibility of rebuilding an entire race from the ground up, Kai has never been so pressed for time. 

Rhona, having found true contentment in the realm of the Gold Mind, must learn to value what is tangible in her life. The needs of her allies will drive her to push past her threshold and forge a new path for the citizens of Anvar. 

As for our friend Bancroft, the Earth Core must learn to rely on those closest to him, while also trusting his own strength. With a mountain full of raw resources, the only restrictions on his ever-expanding dungeon will be the limits of his own imagination. 

Join The Guild Core as our favorite heroes strive to lead three warring countries into a time of peace and regrowth.

Good finish, but author leaves room for sequels

Finishing a series in a satisfying manner is something that can elude many authors, thankfully that is not the case here as the author manages to stick the landing in a meaningful and entertaining manner. One slight issue I had with the start of this book was the time skip that glossed over the meeting of a character that was important to the conclusion and had only been mentioned briefly before this book.

Again, there isn't much to say about the narration, other than it maintains the same high quality as the previous books.

Overall, the author does a good job of balancing the escalation needed for a satisfying conclusion to the series with maintaining the character development that helps draw you into the series in the first place and leaving themself room to return to this world in the future if they feel suitably inspired.

Really good series

Another good book, I enjoyed it but felt the final battle was short and rushed. I understand this might be the final book in the series but I would appreciate it continuing. The narrator once again did an excellent job. Overall I really enjoyed the series and would recommend it.

Brilliant Ending for the Trilogy

A great ending to this trilogy and with some food for thought along with a great battle for survival tale. I would like to see more of these characters but can't see how with the way this series has been structured. The final battle was a little short along with the overall length I think but the buildup and dragon battles were very enjoyable as was the earth core designs.
As with the rest of the books Campbell nails it and would happily get more from both author and narrator again.
I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts for everyone.

Bancroft is My Favorite!

Parents: This series has in some ways gotten better not necessarily cleaner but maybe a bit PG13-R. If you’ve read the first two books you know this is a fairly gore filled series between the violence and a smattering of mature content references, nothing specifically graphic when it comes to intimacy beyond mentioning someone is nude and a reference to quenching ones “passions” The language is a bit more mild in this one and still remains f-bomb free.

Bancroft is my favorite character! He evolves so much through this series and I feel like he helps to really make this series what it is! Obviously Kai has grown quite a bit and this would let be a Guild Core book if there weren’t some variety of insurmountable odds. Well written and creatively speckled with Bancroft worthy surprises. If you enjoyed the first two books, know that this one will not disappoint.

Narrator has fantastic differentiations!

Very nicely done

I’ve really enjoyed all the books that TJ Reynolds has released so far. This addition to the Guild Core series is really nice there is a lot of stuff happening along with the progression of the characters to make anyone who liked the previous books happy about. Steve Campbell does an admirable job with the characters and giving them a true life of there own.

End of an epic trilogy

Kai and Rhonna are both growing in their powers and now their new responsibilities. They take this extra time to grind their own levels and that of their party.

I enjoyed this series from book 1 all the way to the end of book 3. The dragons are an amazing addition to the series. Steve Campbell does an amazing job as always.

Content warning. None.

Amazing narration

I loved the narration especially! Amazing voices that you never get tired of even after 3 books!
The story is fairly good, at times it felt as though the author went for quantity of quality, but still a good series with a deep world that is definitely worth a shot!
I received this book for free and have left an honest review.

good but felt a bit rushed towards the end.

interesting premise, execution was ok however the end felt rushed but that aside a good conclusion to the arc. I say arc because I hope the author creates more within this setting even if not following these specific characters. I'm dying to learn more about the events precluding the story and/or following the conclusion. wonderful world building but lacked in this installment. clear character growth, organic interactions.
narrator performed great. good pacing, clear enunciation, good vocal range and accent mimicry.
