The Station Core

(2 customer reviews)


Milton Frederick was arguably the best player of Crowned Lieges of Destiny in the entire world. As the strategy coordinator for one of the top guilds, he was beginning to actually make a living from it. That was, until he was abducted by aliens.

Instead of your stereotypical grey aliens with big black eyes who like to perform anal probes upon unsuspecting victims for unknown reasons, the Collective had a more altruistic purpose. Sure, kidnapping 100 humans from Earth, ripping them away from their lives and families, and erasing their memories doesn’t sound great – but the way they saw it, the benefits would far outweigh these side-effects. Seriously, who wouldn’t want their consciousness trapped in a Station Core, subjected to the whims of a collection of alien races, and then ordered to defend against other hostile aliens for all eternity? They’d be immortal – so…bonus!

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), the Station Core now known as Milton never arrived at his destination. Severely damaged and confused about what happened to him, he woke up to find himself trapped inside a massive chicken egg on a strange, primitive world filled with curious – and deadly – creatures.

Now, in order to survive the harsh environment, Milton has to rely on a snarky, foul-mouthed AI guide to show him what it means to be a Station Core. With her help, he might just live long enough to figure out a way to get off the planet – if only he wasn’t so afraid of squirrels….

Contains litRPG/gamelit elements such as level progression and experience, optional tables, no harems, and a heavy dungeon-core emphasis.

Based on feedback, there has been an update to include the absent footnotes to the narration. Many of the longer stat table footnotes are contained in separate chapters for ease of listening.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    What a great book! Thoroughly engaging and surprising every step of the way. I can’t wait to start book 2!

    I received a free review copy from Audiobooks Unleashed and am leaving a voluntary review.

    I enjoyed the book. It features an interesting blend of science fiction and fantasy. The main character, Milton (a gamer), is abducted from Earth by aliens and becomes a station core, a high tech dungeon core. He starts out damaged and needs to use his tech and ingenuity, along with some help from an AI companion, to defend himself, repair his core, continue to build his dungeon/station, and, someday, get off the planet he crashed on.

    There is some humor in it with banter between main characters and just their peculiarities. If you like the author’s Dungeon World series, you’ll probably like this one as well. There are some similarities. It also features the same narrator. The narration is good.
