Jinwoo gets “recruited” to help talk to his sister’s friend who is an aspiring hunter. He takes her along on a raid to show her how difficult the hunter life is. The C-Rank gate morphs as the team goes in, and becomes a Red Gate - a gate that transports them to another world. Within the team is an A-Rank hunter, several B-Rank hunters, and a handful of C-Ranks. The A-Rank abandons the lower rank hunters, but Jinwoo helps them and keeps them alive while he works through the bad guys. He tries out his newest skill, which lets him raise shadow soldiers from defeated enemies. Later, he goes back to the dungeon to which he earned a key, and he grinds through several levels before discovering the recipe to make an elixir that might bring his mother out of her sleeping-sickness coma. In order to find all the ingredients, he decides to finally reclassify and stop pretending he's an E-Rank hunter.
One of the best things about this series is the variation in the challenges laid on our main character. Dungeons and gates are all a little bit different than each other, and the challenges Jinwoo faces are pretty different to this point. There is also a bit more about the outside world of the hunters in this book, and we're left with some pretty tantalizing tidbits about someone who might be able to explain what's happening with Jinwoo. I'm looking forward to the resolution of that storyline, hopefully in the next volume!
