The Name of the Wind
Kingkiller Chronicle: Book #1
Narrated by Nick Podehl / 27 hours 55 minutes
“The Name of the Wind is a very straightforward book which you absolutely should not take at face value just because of its upfront nature. Rothfuss builds a slow burn fantasy narrative meant to keep you warm throughout dark nights of literary pursuits, rather than a showy bonfire that burns through all its material in order to hook you. Kvothe, the focal point of the story, is a character study in noticing subtle contrasts. However, the story Kvothe tells is always cordial, and Poedhl's mellow reading only lends itself to enhancing the obliging chronicle. A beneficial factor given the hefty size of Rothfuss' debut novel, a factor which can scare away the faint of heart or the light on time. It is well worth the effort, and ultimately a rewarding reading and listening experience.”Rayne, The Liberty Book Company

Once Upon a River
Narrated by Juliet Stevenson / 16 hours 27 minutes
“Time to settle down for a story. It begins, as good stories should, with the rescue of a pair of strangers on a winter night. Though all is not as it seems in Diane Setterfield’s latest, as Once Upon a River quickly delves into a mystery. The young girl was dead when she was pulled from the river, but hours later she begins to breathe. As the story of her revival spreads, more than one member of the village feels mysteriously drawn to her. Could she be their missing child, estranged granddaughter, long-lost sister? Setterfield’s work is the closest an adult can come to settling down for story time, and Once Upon a River has the same magic, timeless, and cozy charm of a tale that has been told through the ages. Simply lovely.”Molly Gillespie, Joseph-Beth Booksellers

“In a dazzling, emotive prequel to her bestselling novel Practical Magic, Alice Hoffman brings the reader back into the world of the Owens family. The Rules of Magic takes us back two generations with practical Franny, who must learn how to love; sensitive Jet, who must learn how to persevere; and restless Vincent, who must learn how to be happy. Hoffman's writing is frank, tender, vivid, and elusive all at once. Full of sorrow and beauty and courage, The Rules of Magic is a delicious, satisfying read.”Heather Herbaugh, Mitzi's Books
The Prequel to Practical Magic
Narrated by Sutton Foster / 13 hours 25 minutes
“I so wanted to read this slowly and savor every page since this may be the last time we get to venture into this world of magic and the Owens family. But as if entranced by Alice Hoffman’s magic, the pages were turning faster and faster and I devoured this book in two sittings. No one tells a story like Alice Hoffman, and I only hope she finds a way to bring this magical family back to us again in the future. I simply loved this book. It’s everything you want from Alice Hoffman — a great story of love and magic!”Julie Slavinsky, Warwick's

The Book of Life
All Souls Series: Book #3
Narrated by Jennifer Ikeda / 23 hours 53 minutes
“Deborah Harkness' books are brain candy for the educated person. Her contemporary fantasies, filled with vampires, witches, and deamons, veer into historical fantasy (thanks to the long lives of characters). With a reader who can shift accents with ease, this audio book is enthralling. You'll be just as smitten by Harkness' descriptions of libraries, laboratories, and research as you will by her romances, making this a romance for the sapiosexual.”Marika, Porter Square Books

By Signe Pike
Narrated by Toni Frutin / 17 hours 43 minutes
“The prose, imagery, and clever writing make for a profound and vivid story. Truly, you experience this book more than read it. The history and legends spring to life so forcefully you will feel as if you've become part of the story. I was so enthralled with this story that I read it in two sittings; I just could not get enough of Languoreth's story. She is the type of woman you admire. If you're looking for a book to just get lost in, this is the book for you! ”Katrina, Anderson's Bookshop
