Stolen Lives: Underhill Chronicles, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Trapped in another world. All stats against them. It’s fight or die.
When Caleb reported for his normal shift, he never expected to go from the front seat of his ambulance to a bloody battlefield in a medieval Fey Realm. Kidnapped and beaten unconscious, he wakes up with a concussion and a fresh tattoo. While this might not be totally unusual for him, having the tattoo project the image of his stats and equipment like an old school tabletop RPG kind of is.
He finds himself thrown into a cell with three strangers who’ve also been abducted. Even worse, they’re all from different time periods, and due to the disjointed flow of time between the real world and this realm, hardly able to understand each other. They’ll have to learn to work together.
Months of training will lead to a yearly battle they were kidnapped to fight in. It’s law.But Caleb has other plans. Outnumbered and under-armed, but lured in by freedom, he can either stay and fight in the games, or try to lead the escape to the only gate back to their world. Either way, it’s live or die.
Don’t miss this epic new LitRPG/GameLit Saga, perfect for fans of Spartacus, Eric Ugland, and Aleron Kong.

But that was the problem. Character took a backseat to the frantic nature of the constant action. We get to meet many characters by name, but their personalities never got a chance to come through. Instead we had to deal with an endless description of fights and then frantic action to recover from fights, run away from fights, plan for future fights, etc.
Fights are interesting, but they can't be the only part of the tale and in this story that's what it seemed the story became. There just wasn't much character in this despite the huge cast.
Its not otherwise bad, but it had soo much potential and that potential felt wasted by the overly simplistic plot that had nothing but action and little time to reflect on building up the rest of why everything was happening.
Fun, but I have to give this just 3 stars. It should have and could have been a lot better with more interludes to establish characters.
It's a fight or "perma-die" situation, and the action is turned all the way up to 11, complete with brain matter spewing out the back of an unfortunate head or two!!! Caleb, has just one thing on his mind: to change the odds, and turn the tables on the Fae and escape! Something he can't do without the help of his pack mates!
And, yes! I loved it! I guess I saw to many Samurai movies in my formative years! LOL
The narrator Angelo De Loreto did his job admirably, and I was so wrapped up in the story I lost track of him as "the narrator". Ya gotta be doing real good to accomplish that! 😆
If I had any complaint, it would be about the abrupt ending (Not that it wasn't good, mind you)... I guess I'm just the type of reader that perfers the book to close with more of a denouement!
