In The Land:Predators, the Mist Village has harnessed its power. Core buildings, Professional fighters and now, their own Dungeon, the settlement is primed to grow into a kingdom of true power and magic. The path to power has not been without risk, however. The Mist Village has been noticed.
Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice and fanatical kobolds from the Depths, all plot the village's destruction. The predators are circling. Richter's people are horribly outnumbered by foes whose own power has been entrenched for thousands of years.
Richter and Sion need to be stronger than ever before. Luckily, they are. New skills have been learned, stronger enchantments have been wrought and the hundreds of villagers have answered the call to adventure. The Companions do not stand alone. While many eyes have turned towards the mists, wanting to take the treasures within, the Mist Village stares back with a simple message.
Come and get it!
My Opinion: 2202 pages, $8.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited
This novel may seem a bit on the expensive side at $8.99 but per page it’s really at a cost of 4/10th of a cent per page. Another way to look at it is that this is seven 300 page books long.
That’s more than all the other novels on the podcast added together.
The review: This is a fun novel in line with the rest of the series. It’s roughly broken in half between kingdom building and action adventure.
One thing that is a common comment in the reviews, the beginning has a lot of upkeep. A bunch of notifications (like pages and pages worth), dealing with the results of the last battle of book 6, there’s the introduction of a dungeon and a bunch of new info on that. There is upkeep with town building stuff, crafting, and managing citizens.
Starting around 20%, the action starts again as Richter and his companions explore the new bloody chaos dungeon. After that the story just switches regularly between the action-adventure and kingdom building.
Some cool things that I was really glad to finally see: Finally get to meet another Chaos Seed, more info on how many there are and why they were all sent there from earth. You get some resolution to some outstanding quests, including some pretty epic fights. The dungeon is a great add on that provides local monster hunting without having to go traipsing off into the forest.
Overall, a good read. I personally think there is easily enough content in the story to have broken it up into 3-4 novels. It took me 3 solid days of reading to finish this guy.
Score: 7 out of 10
