Blood Debts

By Terry J. Benton-Walker
Narrated by: Bahni Turpin, Joniece Abbott-Pratt, Torian Brackett & Zeno Robinson

Blood Debts

Blood Debts is a YA fantasy that will drag you into its world, and not let you go. I couldn't stop reading, invested in the fates of the Trudeau twins. It was a wild ride, but the book has depth, exploring issues of privilege, race, power, and the acceptance of LGBTQ people. An amazing book! (Especially recommended on audio. It's incredible!)”

Painted Devils

Little Thieves: Book #2

By Margaret Owen
Narrated by: Saskia Maarleveld
Length: 14 hours 41 minutes

Painted Devils

“Despite the cliffhanger (will never recover), this book has it all - incredible sass, major shade thrown at certain container ships blocking certain channels, Backstreet Boys references, and only slightly less than enough Ragne. OH! AND - it takes on virginity as a social construct, normalizes ACE relationships, has found family and biological family redemption, trans/non-binary rep, a diverse casts, and OH SAINTS, THE CHARACTER ARCS. When it comes close to the miscommunication trope, it USES COMMUNICATION TO FIX IT. I love it. I love Margaret Owens. I love Vanja. I love Emeric. I love this series.”
