Dark forces are threatening everything that Dungeon Lord Edward Wright cares about… and they don’t expect what they’re about to get.
Only a few weeks have passed since the Battle of Burrova, and Edward and his friends are busier than ever improving the Haunt and protecting the surviving villagers.
Sadly, time is a scarce commodity in the world of Ivalis. Soon enough, Ed finds himself thrown in conflict against the man behind the mindbrood’s attack, a man who is seemingly capable of shrugging off mortal wounds and who is willing to unleash a devastating plague of undead against the Haunt and everyone inside.
Only the otherworldly powers of a Dungeon Lord may be capable of protecting the Haunt against the rapidly approaching danger… but can Edward remain the same man if he exposes himself to the corrupting influence of that very same power?

The description tells you almost nothing about what happens in the novel. It’s a combination adventure outside the dungeon, some dungeon building, and dungeon defense. It all hinges around the beginning when the Ed, the dungeon lord, is sent to help a thief named Katalyn escape from a group trying to sacrifice her to her evil dad who has been summoned from the dead as a monster. From there bad people start to realize Ed, the dungeon lord, should be killed and they become a threat to him and the dungeon. There’s also this sort of odd middle section that reminds me of a 1920’s rum running story. Then more fighting!
Along the way there’s finally some dungeon building. Well, more like dungeon housing projects but at least there’s some building and crafting going on. I really do like crafting. Though I feel like the dungeon building side of things will always feel more like town building because the main character has no intention of being evil and killing creatures or people for resources.
Overall, aside from a few translation snag (Like calling Chicken Coops, Chicken Dens??), a good read.
