He writes fantasy fiction with a gaming or RPG feel and theme (and in one series, outright scoring and leveling up), and that might sound off putting, but it's actually fantastic!
The humor in the form of horrible (awesome) puns made my face hurt more than once.
The larger than life characters getting around the systems or going into overdrive to outpace everyone's expectations.
The magic systems. The coffee elemental...I'll let that one sink in for a bit.
The tie in to gaming with a side of ,"What if games and gaming systems met real life?"
The twists; the turns; the loopdy loops...
And, oh my god, the surprise connections! I just finished a second series by this fellow, and um, I apparently need to read the other one again! Holy cow! Love!!!
Ok, enough of that. If you dig game literature, fantasy, intricate leveling systems, or even ideas for your own ongoing or future campaigns, I think you'll dig Dakota Krout's books, too.
About the Author:
I live in a 'pretty much Canada' Minnesota city with my wife and daughter. Thanks to you, I'm now a web developer and computer programmer turned full-time author and indie publisher through my company, Mountaindale Press.
I started writing The Divine Dungeon series because I enjoy reading and wanted to create a world all my own. To my surprise and great pleasure, I found like-minded people who enjoy the contents of my mind. Publishing my stories has been an incredible blessing thus far and I hope to keep you entertained for years to come!
Find me here:
The Divine Dungeon - Enjoy world building through the eyes of a sentient dungeon. Unfortunately for treasure-seekers, the fastest way for the dungeon to achieve his goal... is to eat anyone that enters his depths.
The Completionist Chronicles - Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, Joe, a combat medic turned cleric, decides to complete every mission, master every ability, and learn all of the world's secrets. All he has to do is survive long enough to make that happen.
