Description
Things are not well within the Lodrak Empire. An entire city goes up in smoke and ash, and an entire province is slowly being consumed by an ever-expanding cloud of death.

But while the humans rally to contain the fallout of this disaster, they are much quicker to pin the blame for it on their elven neighbors to the north. With centuries' worth of strife and bad blood between the two nations flaring up, all out war is rapidly becoming an inevitability.

Powerful figures are already on the move. Some wish to unravel the mystery behind the dead city in order to bring the perpetrators to justice. Others are more than content enough to use this "act of terrorism" as an excuse to further the Empire's agenda. A select few are even planning on somehow turning this cataclysm into a weapon for the sake of their ambitions. The elves of the Ishigar Republic are hard at work undermining and sabotaging their old enemy, while the international community watches the ongoing situation with a critical eye. Even the Gods themselves are closely monitoring the situation, ready to intervene should they deem it necessary.

However, though all these entities have different reasons and methods, they all have the same objective - to find the mastermind responsible for setting all this in motion.

The same "mastermind" that is far too busy figuring out how wagons work to notice the world is stirring.

Review

Not for the Easily Offended

Review by: Morgan HobbesNot for the easily offended, but Fizzlesprocket (Everybody Loves Large Chests book 2) by Neven Iliev certainly is a cracking tale of a murder hobo mimic and their psychopathic demonic familiars. Seriously, there is a lot of horrifically awful stuff going on in this one, but if you made it through book one, then this probably won't faze you.

Neven kicks it up a few notches in this one, though, with much of the first half of the book detailing the violent, masochistic sexual encounters between Boxxy's two female demon familiars, Snack and Arms. Boxxy, of course, couldn't care less what their pets get up to, so long as it doesn't interfere with their goal of getting more tasty things.

Boxxy's unique approach to levelling up runs parallel to the aforementioned violent sexcapades and is a much more interesting plot. Set immediately after the events of book one, our band of anti-heroes are putting as much distance between themselves and the ruined city as possible. Fortunately, the sex dies down mid-way, and the rest of the story comes into focus.

The story is narrated by my absolute favourite narrator, Jeff Hays from Soundbooth Theatre, along with the occasionally added sound effect. For me, sound effects can easily kill an otherwise good audiobook, but when used sparingly, such as in this book, it doesn't detract at all. There are also helpful "you may skip this section" where the stat readouts aren't anything critical like the first book.



Narration Sample



Overall, if you can ignore the incredibly violent sex going on, the rest of the story builds well on the first. I'll be spending a credit soon on the next in the series, that's for sure.
