Description

Strength. Honor. Death.

Once every year, in the city of Sunja, gladiators meet within the arena known as Sunja's Pit. Some men enter for the lure of fortune, some for the fame, and some simply for the fight. The games continue for days until a champion is finally crowned. Or until all involved perish.

Four companions struggle to change their lives in and out of the arena as it becomes clear that to be a Free Trained pit fighter is to live with a mark on one's head. And not everyone is pleased to learn of their plans, as the four warriors soon discover that the path to establishing a formal presence in the games, after the season has started, is infinitely more difficult than expected. All the while, unseen forces watch, waiting for the best time to strike at the companions and take everything that they have.

This is blood sport at its finest.

At its worst.

At its longest.

A Masterpiece, read by one of the best!

OK, this doesn't belong in horror, which is where I found it. I'm not typically a fan of action fantasy fiction. It takes an exceptional book to get one to like something outside of their preferred genres, and this book does that and leaves me wanting more.

131 Days is like the best historical fiction, rich with detail, fast moving, but in this case so compressed, focused on the arena and those connected to it that it ultimately seduces you with the finely woven world.

Then there's the one-two punch of Blackmore's excellent character development and Lee's typically incredible character performance. While I notice a few voices were familiar from other works (particularly Clive Barker's the Crimson Gospels) this is in no way a negative. They were perfect for the characters they were used for. In my mind, Lee adds so much to the uniqueness of each voice, that it's as if you're listening to a full cast audio play, and some roles are being played by familiar, highly talented actors. Take note publishers, and you too Audible, THIS is what an audiobook should sound like.

better then mountain man

I loved the mountain man series and so far this series is even better. the characters are deep and endearing, there's a lot of humor and a ton of action. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come on audible! Blackmore is so much fun to read!

Action Packed Awesome!

131 Days is all about the arena. Fighter vs fighter, blood and gore, tons of action.

Never been disappointed with this author's books and I've been reading them from the start.

Listen to the sample and enjoy. It starts off with an old fighter going back to the arena for glory. The matches fly by and you'll be attached to the characters hoping they can win against the odds. Who doesn't love an underdog?

Driveway moment

Full disclosure - I did love the movie Gladiator ... and this audiobook made me want to scream like Liz Taylor at the Oscars "Gladiator." The action scenes deliver so much tension that I sat in my car until I knew who'd make it out of the pit - hence giving me that driveway moment. John Lee's performance of the characters is incredible - he takes you there. You love some and hate some. Really a great beginning - can't wait for more.

I Dub Thee "Keith Sweat"

I like all Keith C. "Sweat's" books, Mountain Man, Breeds, Blah, etc- Review
* Book was good, earned Keith the Nick Name Keith "Sweat" - (If you don't know this reference, Google Keith Sweat, watch the Video 'Nobody' and dream of the hot date to prom you didn't have and imagine her or him and you grinding away to this song, you are welcome.)
* I like Gladiator Books apparently
* Good Start
* Decent Finish
* Good Narrator
* Keith C. Sweat is a good, fun, author- I will read the rest of the series
* I like when people recommend books in their reviews
* So you don't have to google, 'authors like Keith C Blackmore or Joe Abercrombie'
* I really Enjoyed Nicoles Eames Heart Wylde
* Angus Watson's Land you Never Leave- Really Sneaky Good
* Arisen Series- Michael Stehen Fuches (Less Funny, Really Good though)
* Galaxys Edge Series
* The First Law Series by Joe Abercrombie
- I don't really write reviews, but am always looking for awesome books like these and from incredible authors like Keith C. Sweat Blackmore, so throw some out in your reviews for me will you? Let this review be a guide on how I, Thomas 'T-Bag' Baggins, would like all reviews done moving forward.
