Publisher's Summary

Almost 20 years after the barrier between Earth and the Otherworld fell in the Fae Wars, Budapest is balancing on the precipice.

A battle for dominance is brewing between the elite fae and the privileged humans in Eastern Europe. The prejudice between the sides is bubbling with hate and violence.

Nineteen-year-old human, Brexley, has grown up in privilege, but not without heartbreak. After being orphaned, she is taken in by General Markos, living in a walled city rife with power grabs and ruthless political games. Then, one night, the course of her life changes, and Brexley is thrown into the most feared prison in the east. Halalhaz, the House of Death - where you go in but don’t come out. She must learn to live with the worst of fae and human criminals. The rule of hierarchy puts humans on the bottom, where the only way to survive each day is to make alliances with the fae.

Here, she meets the sexy, vicious legend, Warwick Farkas; a myth among man and fae. He is as brutal, cruel, arrogant, and as lethal as the lore says he is. He rules the prison with unchallenged authority. Brexley can’t deny an intense draw to him, one that might cost her life...if The Games - a fight to the death where only one survives - don’t take her out first.

Savage Lands is set in the same world as the Darkness, Collector and Lightness Saga series, but can be listened to as a stand-alone.

Best book in this category I’ve read in years! I rarely give a 5 star but damn!

I only rate maybe 1/20 books I read or listen to a 5 star, it actually annoys me that people give 5 stars so liberally because it makes it hard to find a book I’ll actually like, to me a 3 star is still okay and worth a read but this is by far the best book (in this fantasy genre) I’ve read in years, yes even better than court of thorns book 1 or cruel prince which are someone of my fav series in this genre, it’s such a complete book (it’s a slow burn so if you want insta fake love this isn’t for you I guess but it does it so so well), and we don’t even know for sure which direction it’s heading, hopefully it can keep up in book 2

This was honestly super enthralling from start to finish, the narrater was great with the character voices, and the ending damnit! I can’t wait the 20 days until the next one comes out

Everyone wants to get with her

So everyone wants to get with her and everyone turns her on. Seemed a bit much to be honest. Running from the enemy, slick folds. Mid fight seen, she can feel them like their in her core. Making out with this dude, crushing on that dude. Pleasing herself to another dude, who I feel like is the age of her parents. Like really everyone wants her and she gets turned on by all men apparently. At this point in the book tho, where i am stopped to write this, she hasn’t actually gotten with any one yet. So idk, It’s just not my favorite I guess. No real emotional connections between characters And as of yet no actual getting together.

There was so much potential…

This really could have been and amazing book. The basis of the story would have been a great one to tell, however, the execution was poor. The author fell into predictable tropes – I’m not like other girls or insta-love without merit. Not everyone needs to be sexually attracted or in love with the main character.

I like spicy books and can over look many of their fault- but this one... OMG. The “spicy bits” happened at odd or uncomfortable times and it left a sour taste in my mouth.

I’m upset that i wasted a credit on this.

Hope you like smutt

To begin the narrator did a fantastic job! There is noting better than a narrator who can make you feel like you are in the story. A+ for sure.
The story line itself was ok, but my biggest issue was the amount of smutt. Ok don't get me wrong I love a good steamy sex scene, but this book was non stop about this girl wanting to get laid and how every man wanted her. And I really got sick of hearing about the main guys giant "you know what" outlined through his pants. All the sex talk was distracting to the actual story line. Unless the author wanted that to be a big part on the plot?
That being said the book was full of action and deff not boring. I will be listening to the next one, but now I know what to expect!

Wish I had looked up the genre first …

At the very end of this book, they mention this is a “paranormal romance”, and yep, that tracks. I wouldn’t have guessed it by the summary. If you’re not into romance like me, skip this one. It’s not even a great premise, tbh. And you can hear the readers between breaths which was a little irritationing. Not a fan.

Wow

This was an amazing start to what is sure to be an exciting series! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! And I want Brexley and Warwick to get together so bad I can hardly stand it! I already purchased book 2…I have to know what happens next.

Overall loved. Brexley takes a bit to love

people were not kidding when i kept seeing "sexual tension"... and heck yes it was a killer.

Narration is done by a female only, but dang i gotta say she does soooo good. Her version Wick is hot hot hot.

Key words: Fantasy, Fae, Shifters, prison break, Not insta love but possibly fated mates, romance, competitions to the death

Worth the credit!

Please don't change the narrator for the next book! Eva Kaminsky is perfect for this series. If you're trying to decide on this book, let me tell you it's worth it. I'm waiting for the next one (9 days left to wait),

Awesome storyline. Great narrator. I can't wait to start second book.
This wasn't a typical ending that I saw coming. I was feeling her shock.

The hype was worth it..

Huge cliffhanger, not a lot of smut (as was suggested by TikTok), but still a good read! I’d recommend a listen!

brilliant narrator

cannot recommend this book highly enough. For lovers of Sarah J. Maas, Raven Kennedy et Al this story will fill the gap briefly prior to HOSAB coming out. Fae, Demon, shifter, human, other...it's all here! if you are looking for action, strong women and strong dominant men all getting it on against the background of war this is for you. What makes it though is the narrator 10/10

great story. narrator staccato in nature

I really loved the story but found the narrator's very difficult to follow due to the staccato nature of reading.

In a sense, putting, a, comma, after every, few words, meaning, that sentences did not flow, easily.

I dont know if this has been done during editing or whether it's the narrator's style but I found it difficult and would probably avoid her in future.

Slow to start, hang in there!

As per my review title, this book is a bit of a slow starter but do try and stick with it, you won't be disappointed! I had a bit of a struggle getting used to the style of the narrator, however I do think she really does a great job defining the characters.
The main character, Rex, begins as a rebellious teenager living in the lap of luxury and getting her kicks sneaking around. But things go wrong pretty fast for her....
That's all I will say about the plot - no spoilers here - however I must confess that at times I wanted to scream at and/or shake Rex so badly I had to stop listening for a minute and take a deep breath. It's not a bad thing - I'm a parent to 2 teens and I can totally confirm that that is a pretty accurate reaction to have!
I had already bought and downloaded part 2 before I got halfway, and I've no doubt I will want to finish the series. If you enjoy a bit of sexy action packed supernatural mystery then give it a go

Hooked!!

an absolutely captivating read. a really different look at Fae and the reader hooked you in from the start. I have to admit, the sucking in of air before each line was annoying to begin with, but the story engages you so much you quickly take no notice.

Wow another outstanding series from Stacey, she never fails to deliver, her books have well developed plots and engaging characters that hooked you right in and keep you hanging for more. Eva Kaminsky's narrative is brilliant as always.

DNF

I just couldn’t make myself sit through the entire thing.

This book is somewhere between boring and awful, and the audio performance leaves a lot to be desired—though the lacklustre performance probably has to do with the dreadful plot and writing. I wouldn't be able to feign interest if I was narrating this book.

Savage Lands would’ve been more interesting had Brex actually been married off and lived out her days as that awful guy’s wife, secretly working in the best interest of Pest like her “family” (for lack of a better word) wanted.

I genuinely can’t remember the names of any characters other than Brex. Honestly, I don’t know, and I don’t care.

Hard pass. Just glad that I didn't waste my money on a physical copy.

Really enjoyable

Struggled with some of the main characters characteristics at first but once I got past that, I found this to be a really easy listen with the perfect mix of unrequited love, lust, friendship & survival & am keen to start book 2.

Really good

Really enjoyed this. Great narration and interesting storyline. Ends on a cliffhanger but book 2 is available so you can jump right into that one.
Would recommend. Reminds me a little bit of six of crows maybe because of the location but it’s a good thing.
