A note from the author: This book was inspired by some of the mobile Gacha-type games that I like to occasionally play, where you need to collect and upgrade "Heroes" that come from random drawings or through summoning them; in this case, the random Heroes are monsters and traps that the Dungeon Core can use in his dungeon!

Thousands of Heroes protect the land, defending against the periodic incursions by gigantic monsters known as World Threats. This was the way it had always been and Clay Shuntwise was perfectly fine with that. Running deliveries for his family’s shop in the sleepy town of Renton, the young teenager barely even thought about Heroes and their role in keeping the world safe.

That was, at least, until the world came crashing down on him.

Reborn into the brand-new and unfamiliar form of a Dungeon Core, Clay struggles through learning more about Heroes and the dungeons they delve through to get stronger. According to the guide that was trying to help him understand his new life, however, because he was a former Hero, Clay should already know most of what he needed to succeed; all of the finer parts regarding the relationship between Heroes and dungeons, including information about probabilities and drop rates, should be common knowledge.

The problem? Despite wishing that he had been that lucky in his past life, Clay had never been a Hero…but now he might be forced to become one, though not quite in the way he ever expected.

This year, Audible's highly-anticipated Black Friday sale seemed especially well-suited to the season. With many folks holed up indoors, it's a fitting time to seek comfort through the pages (or sounds files) of a good book. To our delight, this year featured 5 books by Jonathan Brooks, narrated by Miles Meili.

Audible kicked off the event featuring 27 select books in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy category, 2 of which were LitRPG. 'The Dungeon Fairy' was among those titles chosen for the event's opening. Other featured entries included Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods', CS Lewis' 'The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe', Anne Rice's 'The Vampire Lestat', and 'Guillermo Del Toro' and Daniel Kraus' 'The Shape of Water'. Mid-week, Audible expanded its sci-fi selection to include books 1-4 of Jonathan's Station Cores series. The sale concluded Nov 30th.

Wishing everyone health and happy listening!
