Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling GameLit Fantasy

What if an immersive game was a gateway to the treacherous Faerie Realm?

WHEN A GAME....

Feyland is the most immersive sim-game ever designed, and Jennet Carter is the first to play the prototype. But she doesn't suspect the virtual world is close enough to touch - or that she'll be battling for her life against the Dark Queen of the faeries. 

TURNS REAL....

Tam Linn is the perfect hero - in-game. Too bad the rest of his life is seriously flawed. The last thing he needs is rich-girl Jennet prying into his secrets, insisting he's the only one who can help her. 

WINNING IS EVERYTHING....

Together, Jennet and Tam enter the Dark Realm of Feyland, only to discover that the entire human world is in danger. Pushed to the limit of their abilities, they must defeat the Dark Queen...before it's too late.

Exciting

I received a free review copy.

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It has suspense, teen romance, magic, and wonderful adventure. It was a fun book to read. I cared about the characters as they dealt with challenges and their emotions. I recommend it.

The main character, Janet, plays an alpha version of a VR game her father is developing. However, she finds it is more than a game. After suffering defeat by the fae queen, she finds her soul is being sapped. She needs help and soon. She looks for and finds the best gamer, Tam, in her new school to help her. However, he has his own problems to deal with. Together, they face the challenges in the fae world as they help one another. Can Tam overcome his problems? Will they win back Janet's soul? Will Tam suffer the same fate as Janet? These questions are answered.

The book is a portal fantasy. It does not feature a lot of combat or advancing attributes. However, it is a wonderful teen adventure partially set in both the fae world and real world.

Exciting Fun!

I went in with no expectations and walked away with an exciting story from a new author for me. I am looking forward to Anthea Sharps next book.

Been waiting!!

I’ve been waiting on this for audio for a long time. Having seen the book around Amazon for years, I figured it was a matter of time, but man was it a long time! The wait was worth it. 100%. Great narration, stellar writing. One for the GameLit hall of fame!

Fun Intro where Classic Lit meets Bleeding-Edge VR

The Dark Realm is a wonderfully enjoyable blend of classic literature and near-future VR gaming. The main character names give away a fair bit of the plot for fans of classic literature and Fae lore, but the updated twist on the blending f the Mortal and Fae realms within the gaming world is well done and does not feel trite. The characters are believable for their ages and circumstances and the story flows nicely. The Gamelit elements are extremely light, to the point where this is more Sci-Fantasy than LitRPG/Gamelit, which makes for a nice book to introduce a new listener to the genre without overwhelming them with stat blocks and details of people leveling constantly. The book can be read/listened to as a stand-alone story with a Life Goes On ending but is also a nice set up for the rest of the Feyland books (not yet available on audio at the time of this review, but available as e-books at Amazon). Overall: Recommended.

disappointing

while I like the genre the main character is unrelatable. the other male main character is a little more relatable this whole teen love will they won't they sub plot is beyond boring.
