The Book of Night Women

By: Marlon James
Narrated by: Robin Miles
Length: 15 hours 45 minutes

“This is a tough, but really good, read. And so powerful and well-done. There are so many strong women in this, in their individuality, in their sisterhood, in their strength. I have to admit that I don't often like stories with main female characters or voices written by men, but James really does something remarkable here. This is so impressive. Read more

The Fifth Season

The Broken Earth: Book #1

By: N. K. Jemisin
Narrated by: Robin Miles
Length: 15 hours 27 minutes

“The Fifth Season is an amazing, dark, and gripping work that will hook you from the first sentence. I cannot express to you how much this book stunned me.

“Sing, Unburied, Sing is a dark and gorgeous song of love and heartbreak, haunting and tragic and disorienting in its timelessness.
