A continuation of a highly entertaining work

The story is very much a self-aware comedy built around an interesting concept ; how did dungeon fantasy settings come to be?

Its fairly light, and the standard genre tropes and cliches are introduced in a manner that is rich in wit. Whilst the tropes themselves are remarkably consistent with the world's own logic.

The most interesting aspect of the story however, is novelty.  Dungeon building stories and dungeon raiding stories are not an uncommon subset of fiction, this work however does not fit the standard mould of either.  So one should not have that expectation upon reading it. Nor should one expect genre deconstruction with a philosophical bent, this is a relatively lighthearted work of comedy after all.




As the first volumen, a good story with the amazing plus of being able to read it to the ent.

Add ents on the next please hehe


A really funny novel with excellent story and really cool concepts. The characters are pretty cool so far (ch 27). All in all an excelleny stpry 


Dont go into this tale with the wrong expectations. This is not a dungeon core story. There's not a lot of focus on building and even less on interaction with intruders.

It's first and foremost a comedy, and a very witty one at that.
Unfortunately a lot of the jokes already went into volume 1 (which I love, 5* all the way!) so the newish factor begins to dim, and we readers are able to see some of it coming from miles away. All in all it feels a bit slower paced than the previous book.
Although I dont laugh out loud as often as in vol.1, the author still manages to surprise me from time to time. "Behold! A monster."

Keep it up! :-)



First book was a decent read but not good enough to bother actually spending money on at amazon for the rest of this second book.
