The Binding

A Novel

By Bridget Collins
Narrated by: Carl Prekopp
Length: 15 hours 29 minutes

The Binding

“The Binding first takes you on a fantastic journey to an old woman's cottage that teaches the art of book-binding; then becomes a very personal story to the apprentice book-binder Emmett Farmer. This is a story that is rooted around memories, the people that wish to use them for profit, and the individuals that feel better left to not remembering them. The narration of this story is exactly what this book needed. I never wanted it to end.”

The City of Brass

A Novel

By S. A. Chakraborty
Narrated by: Soneela Nankani
Length: 20 hours 1 minutes

The City of Brass

“S.A. Chakraborty introduces a fantasy set in the Middle East that thrusts us into the magical world of Daevabad. The City of Brass follows, in parallel, Nahri, a con artist and naturally gifted healer, and Ali, prince of Daevabad and fiercely trained soldier. Nahri and Ali find themselves learning new lessons on how to survive changing environments and difficult challenges, while trying to figure out the complexities of their lives. I found myself turning page after page, following Nahri's and Ali's story while deciphering the fantastic terminology and the world that is Daevabad. The City of Brass is a wonderfully written, mystical adventure that keeps you guessing about what will happen next.”

Sorcery of Thorns

By Margaret Rogerson
Narrated by: Emily Ellet
Length: 14 hours 20 minutes

Sorcery of Thorns

“Amazing! I wonderful fantasy I loved every bit of. The narrator brought this story to life, and I was hypnotized the entire time. This story has some of my favorite elements in it. A strong, smart heroine? Check. A charming hero with demons and a chip on his shoulder? Check. An evil threatening the safety of the world? Check. Elizabeth is such an interesting character, she is determined and clever and she has approximately no quit in her. Despite all of the things that stand in her way, she never says die. When she is forced to choose between the person she has always been, and sacrificing all she knows about herself to help save a clueless, thankless world, she becomes someone new. Part of this is because of Nathaniel. He embodies everything she has learned to avoid and fear. But the world she lives in is bigger than the fears she has been taught. Nathaniel is mysterious and tortured. Elizabeth is everything he doesn't want to need, and he rebels against that. Their partnership progresses naturally, slowly and arduously as they wrestle with what is happening. By the end of the book they have complete confidence in each other and I reveled in every stage of their relationship. Give me the slow burn partnership that neither wants, but works so well. I'll love it every time. Margaret Rogerson is amazing and this book HAD me from the very beginning.”

The Grace Year

A Novel

By Kim Liggett
Narrated by: Emily Shaffer
Length: 11 hours 42 minutes

The Grace Year

“The Grace Year is a brutal, feminist gut-punch of a book that grips you tight and never lets go. Ugly crying will happen and readers are likely to get some serious lockjaw from gritting their teeth in suspense. Narrator Emily Shaffer nuanced performance of main character Tierney James is unforgettable, as she captures each little passive aggressive snipe, every accidental slip of the tongue, and all the fraught emotions that come with being a teenage girl. The comparisons to tense-reading favorites, The Handmaid's Tale and Lord of the Flies, are accurate and certainly well-earned.”

If you enjoyed The Eyre Affair, then you’ll love The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep.

Now, after years apart, they find themselves sharing a city again. Things begin to get dark, in a very literary sense.

Hench

A Novel

By Natalie Zina Walschots
Narrated by: Alex McKenna
Length: 14 hours 14 minutes

Hench

“In a world where super heroes and super villains are commonplace, there are some very interesting opportunities for employment. For example: henching, or signing on to handle basic (and usually boring) tasks for your local villain—think data entry. But when Anna's employer is brought down by the hero Supercollider and she's badly hurt in the process, she starts to wonder what the difference is between the good guys and the bad guys. If you've ever watched a superhero movie and wondered who's going to pay for all the damage after the baddies are beaten, this is a book you will enjoy. Anna's dry humor and astute understanding of human nature makes her a delightful narrator--and Alex McKenna, who performs the audiobook, does a superb job of bringing her to life.”

The Book of Lost Names

By Kristin Harmel
Narrated by: Madeleine Maby
Length: 10 hours 49 minutes

The Book of Lost Names

“WWII fiction writing at its finest with the captivating story of Eva returning to Germany to recover The Book of Lost Names. The narrator captures exactly how I picture Eva and brings to life her story of loss and love. Saving hundreds of lives matters through her forgery skills but not as much as the lives she could not save. I stayed up listening until 3 am. Be ready. You will not want to put this one down. ”

The Midnight Bargain

“If you had to decide between your magical ability and love, which would you chose? Of course, it’s not that simple when your marriage will save your family from bankruptcy, but also take away more freedoms than you know. Sorcery, historical romance, feminism, female friendships, and reproductive rights — this enjoyable novel had everything I needed. Readers of Gail Carriger and Naomi Novik will gobble this up.”
