Publisher's Summary

The division has been reopened, but nothing is as it seems in this electrifying follow-up to The X-Files: Cold Cases, starring David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and a full cast.

"In a world filled with shades of gray, we have to carefully choose which cloak we wear...."

Out of the ashes of the Syndicate, a new, more powerful threat has emerged. Resurrected members of this fallen group - now shadows of their former selves - seemingly bend to the will of someone, or something, with unmatched abilities and an unknown purpose. As those believed to be enemies become unlikely allies and trusted friends turn into terrifying foes, FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully become unknowing participants in a deadly game of deception and retribution, the stakes of which amount to the preservation of humankind. Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris - with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter - adapted specifically for the audio format by aural auteur Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Alien: Out of the Shadows), and directed by William Dufris of AudioComics, Stolen Lives further explores the sonic landscape of Mulder and Scully's paranormal investigations while continuing the epic storyline begun in Cold Cases.

Demonic possession. Flesh-eating swarms. Mind-altering hallucinogenic trips. Listeners experience it all alongside Mulder and Scully in this original dramatization that reunites Duchovny and Anderson once more with fan-favorite characters: Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), and the Lone Gunmen (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).The pieces have been set in motion. Those who were once savagely sought after will exact their revenge. Until their victims' lives are no longer their own.

Only for hardcore Xfiles fans

Give this a try if you are a hardcore fan of the series. It does not seem to answer many questions from the original series and seems like a far offshoot from canon.

The only redeeming quality was the fact that you get to spend a few extra hours with the wonderful cast of a phenomenal show.

The lacklustre story does little to keep you engaged and the ending feels subpar.

fun but again, wished it were longer.

I feel like this is only part of a book and there should be more! I loved it and I'm sad there was only 4 hours of content. I breezed through it in only 2 days.

As much as the show

I️ absolutely loved the banter between Mulder and Scully, felt much more genuine then their interactions in the last tv series. The tongue in cheek comments, especially by Scully, brought back a lightness to stories that made me follow the x-files to begin with.
Although there a couple of spots in the stories were it got confusing and it’s unclear why some things are happening (very x-files) the whole production was fantastic. Certainly there are some unresolved plots that just like when tv show was on makes me excited to hear more.
Thanks for putting the production together!!!

Still fun

I admit that this is just cheesy, campy fluff, but it’s fun. Sometimes it’s nice to have something playing that you don’t have to listen carefully to, really care about, or think about too much. Look no further than this series. Although I didn’t like this as well as the last one due to a more disjointed and difficult to follow story, it was still fun, with occasional laugh-out-loud moments. Love that the original players are back, playing their original characters. I’ll probably get the next installment in the series whenever it’s available.

Wish they were longer...

The stories are great and the performance is outstanding but the content is just so short. I wish there was more or they came out quicker.

Interesting Story

The story is very interesting, very "X-Files-ish" and the voice actors' performances are very well done.

A Great Continuation for the TV Series

What I Liked: As always, the voice-acting behind this audiobook was top notch and very much like watching actual episodes of thes how. It says a lot about how compelling the individual performances were since they totally carry the full weight of the show without relying on visuals or special effects. And man it really takes me back.

The story in itself is one that cuts deep as the returned Syndicate members tend to rely on knowledge of the original episodes. Knowing where the various characters came from just enhances the experience and their involvement was written in a manner that made sure to recap who they were without making it seem like knowledge of the older episodes is critical to appreciating the story as a whole.

What Could Have Been Better: The core conflict of the story and the reveal of the mastermind didn't feel all that great or impactful in the greater scheme of things. It was an interesting way to bring up an older character and make them matter more maybe but the way it was handled and the many scenes we had with this character didn't add all that much to things.

And the drug angle with its inevitable drug trip was amusing at first but eventually just got messy and confusing. And I wanted it to matter more in the long run but it didn't even feel that way either. It was just a narrative distraction that didn't quite pan out as much as I had hoped.

Still good, but too many tropes

The X-Files stolen lives is a subpar follow-up to cold cases. though it is a true sequel it embraces the storyline of a classic X-Files season cliffhanger, and that's the problem. it relies on plot devices that we have seen both in the TV and movies and feels extremely cyclic. That being said the quality of production is still on par with the first one. this one feels a bit predictable where cold cases felt more fresh.

Scully and Mulder back again

Can't wait for the next installment. Still leaving me infuriated with the cliffhangers, but leaving me wanting more
