Rexus (The Completionist Chronicles Book 3)
A side quest in Dakota Krout's best-selling Completionist Chronicles series! Vengeful assassins. A treacherous companion. T-Rex Head Hands. After the Wolfman nation is shattered, Jaxon has enough spare time to advance his skills and specialize into a better class. Since Joe and his other teammates are either incapacitated or on a mission Jaxon does not believe in, the misunderstood chiropractor turned gamer strikes out on his own. The issue with creating your own path is that you have no idea what awaits you, especially when low charisma guarantees legendary misunderstandings. For Jaxon, that’s half the fun. Rexus is a Completionist Chronicles side quest focused on Jaxon and is meant to be read following Regicide.

Rexus (The Completionist Chronicles Book 3) Review

    Rexus is the side story about Jaxon, the party Monk. A kindly old master of acupuncture and chiropractor IRL, he plays a hand to hand fighter with dump stat charisma, and the game is always changing what he hears and is heard to say and randomly triggering his intimidation skill. My sides hurt from laughing. So nice to see things from inside his head for a change.

    Fun but too fastMy two boys giggled through their reading of this. And then I read it and had to laugh as well. The story takes Jaxon, a secondary character from Completionist Chronicles, and tells his story. It turns out he is another Completionist, like the main character. A lot of the humor is more sensible in the context of the other books.As my 12-year-old said, the only thing he didn’t like was that it was over too soon.

    Krout does it againWhile Jaxon might not be a person I'd like to spend time with in the real world. Spending a couple hours with him in this book was just what the doctor ordered. You'll crack up laughing throughout.

    I was predisposed to dislike this novel, Jaxon is my least preferred member of the CC series, but Mr. Krout has once again knocked it out of the park. This was a fast paced and fun way to get to see things from his point of view; and to watch him power up! I'd say more but I don't want to spoil the book for you.

    Great interlude to the next book in the Completionist series. Have to agree with Colin that Mr. Krout knocked it out of the park with this. I am looking forward to hearing Vikas Adams reading this.

    Lighthearted, funny, and insightfulThis is a great view into a side character from the main story. The tone remains what you expect from a Dakota Krout story; lighthearted and fun with plenty of puns. While we saw how low strength and constitution can impact a character in Ritualist, here we get to see what low charisma and high dexterity can do.Best of all, Jaxon has different ideals, goals, background than Joe which indirectly allows the reader to see some of the benefits (and limitations) to Lighthearted, funny, and insightfulThis is a great view into a side character from the main story.

    First of all I have to congratulate the artist of the cover for capturing Jaxon's character so well. So well I had to think more that twice before I started reading it. Just looking at that face made me not want to read it.Contrary to that, I really enjoyed the story and the characters in it and had a laugh throughout most of the book. I really like the way low charisma affects a player. Very humorous and none of those horrible puns of the previous book! Please, never again!Side note: Same phylu First of all I have to congratulate the artist of the cover for capturing Jaxon's character so well.

Even humans and sharks are in the same Phylum as snakes. This was stretched nearly to the max to make that skill possible with a snake connection. Really, simple snake hands would have been fine, Jaxon is 'special' in any case.

    This book was awesome. Loved how Jaxon is pretty much as crazy as he seems. Have to love how the system is essentially fucking with him cause he has such a low charisma stat. Seriously from the beginning to the end only 2 pt increase! Seriously.. Then the ending where they said he was banished yet Joe was like "Yeah right, thats not going to happen". Seems like there is a new contender to be pain in the ass drill instructor. For Joe's group they finally got a normal person XD as a team organizer This book was awesome.

    Not really a third bookLoved it! Wasn't really interested when i first read the blurb but got hooked quick. I still thibk it should be named side quests instead of book 3 as it follows a side character, but I'm not the author so not my call. I am looking forward to book 4 and hoping it's back with the main character instead of another sude character. Though the choice to follow this one was inspired and a barrel of laughs. Hope there is more side stories with him as he is fun. But as i said i we Not really a third bookLoved it! Wasn't really interested when i first read the blurb but got hooked quick.

    The good part - Dakota Krout still has a knack for intersting spins, new concepts and good descriptions. He even added two nice dungeons. The not so good part for me is that Jaxon is just not a believable character anymore. His general charisma deficit gets lame over time and his t-rex hands are... a joke that goes too far for me. Too absurd setting. I can only hope the next book gets back on more believable characters. I love the new character Jess and without her this book would have no charac The good part - Dakota Krout still has a knack for intersting spins, new concepts and good descriptions.

    The story was good and fleshed out the world a bit more. Established a few charactes besides the main party and gave a face to some only heard of previously. Probably my own fault for not reading the description fully (or at all, really), but this book isnt about Joe (MC, the Ritualist) but instead about the chiropractor of the MCs party. The whole "Charisma below 10" thing making him say and hear things that arent actually spoken is both annoying and at some times funny.

    I got a "free" copy of this book because I support the author on Patreon.If you haven't read the other books in this series, I would read them first. This one has substantial spoilers for the previous three. It's almost entirely from Jaxon's perspective (the acupuncture-using monk), which makes the tone a lot weirder than the books from Joe's perspective (I like Joe's perspective better). That said, if you like the other books in this series, you'll probably like this one too.

    This is a delightful novela. This "side quest" as the author describes it is exactly that. A character goes out, gets a quest, goes on the quest, brings another supporting character into the fold, fleshes out a villain, answers some questions, and earns an epic reward.Jaxon is it a great comedic character. A happy helpful man who terrifies everyone who looks at him. Who now has Tyrannosaurus Rex had hands.

    Really Great for a side storyThis book was great. The author did a great job writing this story from the point of view of Jaxon who is intelligent, and a skilled chiropractor, but who has a weakness in being charismatic. I don't often enjoy side stories, but this one was incredibly enjoyable.

    LolI love Dakota’s books! The perfect mix of story, humor, and creativity. I love that Jaxon got a book all of his own. I originally read Regicide, but it wasn’t until I listened to the audible version that I really fell in love with that creepy/hilarious character. This book was so fun I can’t wait to listen to the audible version!

    Very fun read!Jaxon is definitely the strangest character in the Completionist Chronicles, and I was worried that the character voice would be difficult for Dakota Krout to maintain. Totally pulled it off.We learned more about the choices that Jaxon had made and the reasoning behind them. I'm looking forward to another Jaxon story.

    Amazing! (but a little bit short)Really enjoyed the book - this is a great series from possibly my favourite author and I hope there are plenty more to come. However one thing to note is the book is not as long as the others but this does not come with any drop in quality as some 'side quests' have done. Overall a great read that I would highly recommend.

    I have been enjoying this series but wasn't sure what to expect of a story about Jaxon. He is now my favorite character. This story made me giggle enough that my husband thought I was nuts. T-Rex hands enough said.

    Great addition to the Completionist Chronicle. Great character development, plot and story. Having under 10 charisma i think makes Jaxon a unique character from the rest of joe group. Can't wait foe the next book to be released.

    This give more background and depth to the party member Jaxon. He goes on his own path with his misunderstood intentions and comes out the better for it. He finds a new friend, new abilities and new experiences. This book is a great read from start to finish.

    More of a 2.5 not book 3 but brilliant It’s more of a teaser for the next novel but brings insight to one of my favourite characters and introduces a slew of new characters and marvellous things :)

    Such a sidequest!This was so fun! Jaxon is by far the most fun character in the completionist series. This just explores him and his quirks in a fun side romp. You’re going to enjoy it and will miss out if you don’t read it.

    Good workI enjoyed this a lot, especially the low charisma aspects of the character. Its a fun romp of a book, that doesnt take itself too seriously. I sincerely hope there is a solid story arc planned for this series, as I want to read more.

    Weird and funThis one reminded me of playing a Malkavian vampire - the crazy ones. Jaxom was an annoying hoot that grew on me as the book progressed. I'm sure he and Jess will be interesting additions to the main series. Definitely worth the read for me... But I'm weird as well.
