The Blacktongue Thief

Blacktongue: Book #1

By Christopher Buehlman
Narrated by: Christopher Buehlman
Length: 12 hours 25 minutes

If you enjoyed The Unspoken Name, then you’ll love The Blacktongue Thief.

“I came for murder crows and a master thief. I stayed for a bewitched cat and overly exuberant, hilariously unconventional dialogs and quips. This is a fantasy fever dream with crazy magic, sarcastic characters, terrifying enemies, and nonstop action. Every word and every character flew off the pages of this book, bringing to life a fast-paced and unforgettable story. WOAH! What a ride! This might possibly be one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. I HIGHLY recommend this book—even to non-fantasy readers!”

A Master of Djinn

Dead Djinn Universe: Book #1

By P. Djèlí Clark
Narrated by: Suehyla El-Attar
Length: 15 hours 37 minutes

A Master of Djinn

“Fatma el-Sha’arawi is one of the most talented agents in Ciaro’s Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities. Though it is 1912, she has worked her way up the male-dominated agency with a combination of raw magical talent, wit, and force of will. When a room of men burnt to a crisp with no sign of fire shows up, Fatma is put on the case. As she digs deeper and deeper, she is thrown into a world of old religion, angels, djinn, and a mysterious masked figure claiming to be an ancient mystic. This is an excellent steampunk who-done-it. I was fully onboard through all the twists and turns this story took. A Master of Djinn is an excellent book for this summer.”

Across the Green Grass Fields

Wayward Children: Book #6

By Seanan McGuire
Narrated by: Anne Marie Carlson
Length: 4 hours 3 minutes

Across the Green Grass Fields

“If you’ve ever wondered if an adult book could be written to be accessible to not just young adult but middle grade readers, too, wonder no longer: The book of your dreams is here. Across the Green Grass Fields is a wonderful coming-of-age story that has all the mandatory trappings: bullying, parental oversight, unicorns, evil queens, and an intersex main character. It’s like Tanith Lee rewriting Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. This standalone novella is a wonderful entrance to the Hooflands, and I can’t wait to double back and read more.”

Persephone Station

By Stina Leicht
Narrated by: Maria Liatis
Length: 11 hours 55 minutes

Persephone Station

“On a backwater planet, in a highly suspect bar, in a backroom, a group of morally dubious but altruistic mercenaries find themselves caught up in something much bigger than themselves. Swept up in company politics, a truly intelligent AI’s agenda, and the mysteries of Persephone Station itself, Angel and her crew of mercs must now figure out what the hell they got into with this most recent job. This is a book for folks who love a heist and multiple angles spinning into one another. Leicht’s writing kept my attention through every twist and turn this story took. I loved all of the characters, even the evil ones. If a queer space opera with a heist sounds good to you, then read this book. Even if it just sounds ok to you, read this book.”

The Echo Wife

By Sarah Gailey
Narrated by: Xe Sands
Length: 8 hours 25 minutes

If you enjoyed Dark Matter, then you’ll love The Echo Wife.

“Upon first reading the publisher's marketing for this title my thoughts were, ‘That sounds really messed up...I want to read it.’ The events that unfold are filled with suspense, moments of horror, and bring to light the ever recurring question: What makes us human? Upon finishing this title my thoughts rang true to my expectations: ‘That was really messed up,’ but it is well worth the read.”
