Short, expensive, vague, and cringworthy.

after reading dungeon born book 1 I was hungry for some more litrpg novels of the sentient dungeon variety. In looking around for similar novels I found the slime dungeon, which was being heavily used as a comparison online. The slime dungeon, as I understand had begun it's writing process before dungeon born and is widely considered to be the more original story. I was excited to see what a book that took this long to release would bring. (especially since the second dungeon born book is already available on kindle) I decided to check it out and was quite dissapointed.

First, even as a new release, a 25 dollar price tag for a book this short is already a mark against it. as an audiobook I'd hope for it to at least make it through a work day.

Second, I find the actual story severely lacking in details and can't seem to decide whether to be satirical litrpg comedy or gritty fantasy epic. The relationship between the dungeon and his sprite feels so hamfisted and awkward. The few jokes in there dialogue are weird and oddly oversexualized for a magical being speaking to a sentient gemstone. The whole mommy/daddy thing is super cringy.

Third. The villain never seems to be a sincere threat. His convoluted plan makes no sense when he could have easily just waltzed to the boss room and accomplished his goals within the first 5 chapters. it's sheer dumb luck (i.e. deus ex machina) that the one person who could stop him was included the day he decided to enact his "master plan".

There are good parts. The slime evolutions are interesting. but not a lot of jokes. not a lot of action. not much detail in general about the world and how magic works there.

In all I enjoyed it, but I know theirs a book out there that goes into much better detail about pretty much everything and has a much better natural evolution of the characters and the story arc. guess I'll just have to wait for dungeon born book 2.

Simple but good.

A generally good book. Not a lot of depth going on here though.

It's what you would expect from an authors very first book. No side plots, no real character development and no twists or turns. Just "here are the good guys. Here is generally how the world works. Here's a damsel in destress. Here's a bad guy. Yaaaay they stopped the bad guy!. The end".

It's not a bad book, I liked it. I just wish it was fuller, if that makes sense.
