The Witch King

The Witch King Duology: Book #1

By H.E. Edgmon
Narrated by: Dani Martineck
Length: 12 hours 1 minutes

The Witch King

“Where has this feral, hurt, angry, loving disaster of a gay trans witch been my whole life? I felt so at home within the pages of this book, and I know other queer & trans readers will feel the same way—this is the fantasy I wish I had in high school and my current favorite book to handsell.”

Winter Counts

A Novel

By David Heska Wanbli Weiden
Narrated by: Darrell Dennis
Length: 8 hours 17 minutes

Winter Counts

“Weiden’s book is a thriller with an important social and political message. Following a Lakota ‘enforcer’ who enacts extrajudicial punishment to fill the gaps in the legal system, Winter Counts is a twisty new addition to the growing Indigenous literature canon. Weiden’s exploration of the injustices of reservation life is vital.”

Empire of Wild

A Novel

By Cherie Dimaline
Narrated by: Michelle St. John
Length: 8 hours 16 minutes

Empire of Wild

“Cherie Dimaline’s latest novel packs a wallop of a story. Absolutely stunning in every way, this latest offering follows the story of Joan, whose husband has disappeared, and her courage when confronted with truths and lies. She and her husband, Victor, live in a Métis community, close and tight knit. As Joan deals with the fallout of her emotions after Victor disappears, she comes across another man, Eugene Wolff, who bears her husband’s face. He does not carry Victor’s memories and insists he has no idea who Joan’s husband is. Turning over rocks to find the truth, Joan reaches out to whomever she can in her community for help. What waits for her at the end of her quest is incredible. This novel will have you at the edge of your seat!”

“A stunning debut novel by an original voice.
