The District: A Futuristic Dungeon Core (The Laboratory Book 3)


Emma has gained control of one district of a city run by a woman that she tried to kill. While her new position has improved her upgrade abilities the other district heads have had theirs enhanced as well. More of what the series is known for: more super-powered action, more insults, and more upgrades in a struggle to survive.


My Opinion: 206 pages, $3.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited

A small note. There are some semi-regular grammar and spelling errors.

A lot of the story is honestly just meh. There’s nothing wrong with it, but nothing new is brought to the table either. It’s very much a repeat of books 1 and 2 in terms of what Emma is capable of. This one also has no dungeon building. There’s upgrade stuff for Emma and some minions but that it. Even those upgrades become less interesting because Emma seems to have an unlimited resource pool so she doesn’t have to make any hard choices about resource management.

Everything else is just action. Emma versus a bunch of new characters with their own powers. The fights themselves are decently described and the end is interesting enough to keep the novel from getting a 5. But just barely.

Score: 6 out of 10
