By Eoin Colfer
Narrated by Johnny Heller / 9 hours 19 minutes
“Let me just say that I think this novel is best enjoyed as an audiobook. The narrator, Johnny Heller, carried this laugh-out-loud "high crime" fantasy story right out of the Louisiana swamp into my car over several commutes. Colfer reminded me why I fell in love with Artemis Fowl all those years ago — his humor is spot-on and his heroes are unexpected. I don't know the last time a book made me laugh SO hard.”Terri, M & M Books

By Rye Curtis
Narrated by Maggi-Meg Reed / 9 hours 18 minutes
“Original, fresh, and vulnerable. As soon as I finished Kingdomtide, I wanted to read it all over again. The shared plotline of the main characters felt like a heartbeat, speeding up and slowing down as they dealt with what life handed them. This story felt so real, not just in the sense that it could truly happen, but the feelings and emotions and conflicts the characters struggled through, with themselves, others, and society as a whole. A must-read for 2020, it really blew me away. I can’t wait for Curtis’ next novel.”Jen Morrow, Bards Alley
