Publisher's Summary

Indian Hill is about an ordinary boy who grows up in relatively normal times but who finds himself thrust into an extraordinary position. Growing up in suburban Boston, Michael enjoys the trials and tribulations that all adolescents go through, from the seemingly tyrannical mother, to girl problems, to run-ins with the law. From there he escapes to college out in Colorado with his best friend, Paul, where they begin to forge new relationships with those around them. It is one girl in particular that has caught Michael's eye, and he alternately pines for her and laments ever meeting her.

It is on their true "first" date that things go strangely askew. This is where the story truly takes a paranormal twist. Mike soon finds himself captive aboard an alien vessel, fighting for his very survival. The aliens have devised gladiator-type games. The games are of two-fold importance for the aliens: one is their entertainment value, and the other is that the aliens want to see how combative humans are, what our weaknesses and strengths are. They want to better learn how to attack and defeat us. The battles are to the death on varying terrains that are computer-generated.

Follow Mike and Paul as they battle for their lives and try to keep the US safe, in the first book of Mark Tufo's Indian Hill series.

Why does Mr Tufo keep re-releasing old books?

this is the second time I've purchased a book that I already own that has been repackaged and called a new book. Why does audible keep allowing this to happen as well? Even the publisher summary was incorrect and made it seem like it was a completely new book. If I already own this book why doesn't audible say that I already have purchased it like they do for every other book in a series?

Old Book Release

I also purchased a book that I already had. In the future I need to look at the Book number not the release date. Not a happy zombie.

Take A Pass On This One

I hate to admit it but this book did me in. The overall story intrigued me for its Hunger Games, meets Gladiator, Meets V story adaptation. EDIT- I honestly tried to write a review for this book and I couldn't do it. There is so much wrong with this book that I cannot continue with the series. It is seldom that I am brought to the point of returning a book, but this one made that list. If you are into brutalizing women, huge plot holes, poorly executed continuity of the story, then this book is for you. Enjoy. The narration is very good, but the story is very convoluted. I could go on about how the Hero never has to bear the pain of having one of his women hung up in humiliation as an "if you win you get her" trophy while all of his opponent's women are. It made no sense. The over the top teenage porn/sadomasochist phantasy that is much of this story really undermined what could have been, had it benefited from a rewrite, an interesting story of human endurance, survival, and perseverance. But alas, the story is so convoluted as to seem as though it was written by several different writers of varying degrees of skill. While the beginning was well crafted, the middle to end was abysmal, in my opinion. This one book ruined the series for me. It killed my interest so profoundly that I can't continue with it. I found the book to be very depressing and not of my liking. You may enjoy it, and if you do, great. I, however, didn't. The author is a fine wordsmith and I know his later works are far better than this. This book would have benefitted from a complete rethink and rewrite. As it is now, take a pass. Use your credit on something else. I recommend Galaxy's Edge.

Good, but for the female stereotypes

So great story, awesome action. But all woman are not catty and scary. Eye roll every time I get to one of those parts.

Harem and unrealistic behavior of women warning.

I really wanted this to work out for me, this kind of novel is one of my favorites. It kind of came to a head for me when one of the characters of the book, a woman, uttered the phrase "Women are just not meant for communal living." Beyond the absurdity of this statement to any woman currently serving in the armed forces or literally any of the many professions or situations that require communal living, this really just highlighted the sexism rampant in this novel. Prime example: A woman who's fiance was murdered as she watched on a monitor somehow is able to be sexually attracted to the main character within a matter of hours of this traumatic event. And lets not talk about the many other women who have all lost at least one loved one or are still captured an untold distance from Earth that manage to be also sexually attracted to our main character. Completely absurd. I found myself skipping chapters of this drivel so that I can get through this first book to give the 2nd a try when the conflict with the aliens seems to kick off.

Can never get enough

IM JUST SAYING: this is probably one of the longest series I have ever had my hands on. I started with Zombie Fallout, moved to Lycan Fallout, and now I’m here. I’m not even mad I’m out of order. Mike always makes the adventure worth it, and this book was no different then all his others. Thank you Mark for bringing an amazing character to life… again and again ;)

An Incel's Wet Dream

I usually love Mark Tufo's books. This was one of the worst cases of absolute male fantasy sexism I've ever encountered in any book. I can handle his passing remarks from Zombie Fallout, and some are funny; but the plot of this book, the presentation of Talbot's m'lady gentleman attitude, the "fall at master's feet" women, and the continual humblebrag of being the best and smartest human on board was just over the top. Every aching minute of this book after they get onto the ship is either A) He outsmarted everyone but takes a few good hits and somehow lives, B) Women fall in love with him because he has shown human decency, C) the women are jealous of anyone he shows attention to and they squabble over who gets to serve his needs, or D) He is a nice guy and does nice guy things even though every single other character either wants to kill him or bang him. The other characters are not built to be independently intelligent or useful. They all serve to glorify Talbot either by posing as the bad example so he can be the good one, or by creating a whiny dramatic unrealistic scenario that he comes along to fix. It's an Incel fantasy and I regret buying the series before listening to the first one. Again, I love the Zombie Fallout series, so I was not expecting to be so disgruntled. The concept was great, execution was painful. But, per usual, 5 stars to Sean the reader who continually knocks it out of the park.

Don't worry, not ZF and worth the credit.

Not a big fan of the zombie genre, much more a fan of space sci-fi and fantasy, but gave Zombie Fallout a chance because of the reviews talking about the sarcastic and dark humor, which I enjoy. Quickly became a fan to the Zombie Fallout series, and have been through it twice, along with Lycan Fallout. Was not sure what segment of the reality tree to go with next. It was either this or Timothy, but who the f**k really likes clowns, and decided to try this one due to having the space sci-fi aspect, despite some of poor reviews of those who probably like to touch various parts of their body while looking lovingly in the mirror and telling themselves how smart they are, you know the people I am talking about. Enjoyed the book very much. Goes into a bit more detail about Mike's early years throughout, which is nice, and the story is somewhat original in the sci-fi genre, which is not the easiest to do (yeah, I know, the self touching, mirror gazing smart people will give an example or two of why it is not original, and spend the next week researching to find a third before posting their review while not mentioning myself but with an obvious inference). If you like Zombie Fallout, I think you will enjoy this one. I already bought the rest of the series and look forward to listening over the next week or two. As usual, Sean Runnette does a great job bringing the story to life.

Found from ZF Series and hooked!

Came to Indian hill becuase I loved Mark Tufos work and Sean Runnetts narration being it to life.

Loved the audio book. Does start a bit slow going into mikes childhood but 100% needed so if your stuck getting past it just stick with it!

Fantastic listen and have now downloaded the rest of the series!

Brilliantly done.

Although the book starts out slow to build up the back story of the main characters, it is kept very humorous and is necessary.

Because then all of a sudden things just get absolutely intense and it is utter brilliance. A very good lead up to the main bulk of the story and it just stays consistently good throughout the whole book, next thing you know you’ve just listened to 7 hours in one sitting on the edge of your seat/bed/log/cell waiting for what happens next!

P.S also if you like this and haven’t done so listen to zombie fallout series because it is just as amazing as this!
