"This is the world you were meant to fight for!"
Welcome to the sixth vivacious installment of Aleron Kong's Chaos Seeds series.
The time of hiding has passed. The Mist Village will make itself known. Goblins have invaded Richter’s lands. Though the first incursion has been defeated, the anger of Chaos Seed remains. Those who challenge Richter’s power will learn there is a reason all creatures fear the mist.... It is the home of monsters.
For the first time, Richter takes the battle to his enemies. He will live up to his name, and the very Land will shake with this power. With his allies, the wood sprites of Nadria, the army of the Mist Village marches to war. Richter has been a healer, an enchanter, a dungeon diver, and a killer. Now he becomes something more. He becomes a raider!
This is a world of wonder and horror. This is a world of pain and joy. This is the world of monsters...and the brave men who battle them. Welcome back my friends!
Welcome back...to the Land!

Prompts and Yet More Prompts: The RPG
I really like the Chaos Seeds series, but book 5 and book 6 were lacking in overall storyline and plot. Instead, it was listening to prompt after prompt after prompt.
You know what it was like? As a teen, I begged my boyfriend to teach me Dungeon and Dragons. Instead of spending time being a good teacher or playing a good game, he would instead spend hours bragging through all the choice he could have made. He would elaborate on what powers he chose for his characters and boast endlessly about how MinMaxed his character was. I would sit there screaming internally for him to get over his self ego pumping blow job and just let us play the game. What was more frustrating was that I had read his world material and the game potential was amazing....but every game required sitting there, nodding like a bobble head and trying to slog through the endless descriptions of shit that didn't matter.
That is exactly what book 5 was like as prompts would describe endless powers and potentials and repeating information that wasn't even being used by Richter immediately. There were so many repeating prompts, my husband put a ban on playing any more Chaos Seeds Audible files in the car because he refused to listen to "Someone reading off their Mary Sue character sheet over and over."
There is an amazing story here and I'm slogging through trying to find it, but both book 5 and book 6 feel like they're 75% prompts and point allocation and only 25% actual storyline. After 6 books we should be so much further into the actual story, more things on Richter's To Do list should be done, more exploration should be completed. I find myself hitting the 30second skip button now when I hear the "Prompt" voice start up...once I nearly skipped a full chapter because there were just that many useless prompts. Maybe its easier when reading, but I use audible for 90% of my books now a days.
What I hate is there is a good story here, but I'll probably never relisten to this series because I'm hating how much of a chore it is to get through the prompts. I wish I knew how to get this review to Aleron directly because I want to tell him his story is intriguing and I want to read it till the end...but the constant interruption of the storyline with the Richter reading an endless list of character stuff feels like being forced to sit through commercials in a movie. There is no satisfaction after SIX BOOKS to give you a feeling of completion. Its just a constant never ending cliff hanger from one book to the next without enough actual story to make you feel satisfied. Its beginning to feel pointless...probably because all the points got spent at some prompt I skipped over during a +5 boredom rebuff.
