Attention. Attention. The gates are down. The hunters are loose.
Run, Run, Run.

A lush jungle teeming with danger. Savage dinosaurs seeking blood. A fallen princess intent on vengeance. A mysterious, end-of-floor celebration for the top crawlers, dubbed “The Butcher’s Masquerade.”

The sixth floor. The Hunting Grounds.

As the remaining crawlers battle for their lives, a new, terrible threat looms. Outside tourists are finally allowed to enter the game, and they are here and ready to hunt. Among them is Vrah, a famed and veteran hunter, intent on collecting the biggest trophy of her career.

But their prey is far from harmless, and this season they are fighting back.

Dungeon Crawler Carl and Princess Donut return in book five of the acclaimed LitRPG series.

Ducking awesome



Interesting way to catch up with carl

Best of its Class

Please.... Please give us more. DCC + Jeff Hays = Crack. Audiobooks collaborations like this will leave you addicted. Perhaps listening to some Kaiju afterwards might help but not guaranteed to break this addiction. Matt D. if you read this, please cancel all other projects until you complete this story you bastard.

love it

Great job!
