Audible sale

They're having a great sale at Audible until Sept 20, with books less than $5! Scanning the list, it's surprising how many of them are favorites of mine.

Soulless by Gail Carriger is the first in a steampunk series with vampires and werewolves. Emily Grey's reading lends just the right touch of Victorian ennui.

Kitty in the Midnight Hour by Carry Vaughn is the first in a present-day series with Kitty as a late-night talk show dj fielding calls from newly outed supernaturals. Marquerite Gavin's reading is a lot of fun.

The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bjould is also the first of a series, but it can be read on its own. It's the story of one man returning to the place of his youth as he gradually reveals where he's been and what he's learned. Lois McMaster Bjould is often compared to Jane Austen because her characters are so nuanced. Lloyd James gives an excellent performance.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The classic time travel love story of Claire and Jamie smoothly read by Davina Porter.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King matches the wits of Sherlock Holmes with a 15 year old girl. Jenny Sterlin's gravely voice is perfect for no-nonsense Mary Russell.

  1. How did I miss this? I've already added Outlander to my wish list. Now I'm perusing the rest of the titles. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
