The Roman
By Sylvain Reynard
Read by Robertson Dean
Read the full description.

“This is not an ordinary vampire story, it’s a beautifully dark and passionate novel nestled in Italy and capable of taking one’s breath away.”
RT Book Reviews

Raven and her sister, Cara, are at the mercy of a small detachment of Florentine vampyres, who are delivering them as a peace offering to the feared Curia in Rome. Though she’s unsure William survived the coup that toppled his principality, Raven is determined to protect her sister at all costs, even if it means challenging Borek, the commander of the detachment. In an effort to keep Raven from falling into the hands of his enemies, William puts himself at the mercy of the Roman, the dangerous and mysterious vampyre king of Italy. But the Roman is not what he expects . . .

The Baseball Whisperer
The Baseball Whisperer

By Michael Tackett
Read by Mike Chamberlain

“Tackett reminds readers of just how close baseball lies to the nation’s heart . . . Deeply engrossing . . . One of baseball’s most humanizing backstories.” Booklist, starred review

The Baseball Whisperer is a book that teaches the reader as much about hard work and American values as it does about the game of baseball. Through one man’s efforts, hundreds of young men from all over the country and from different economic backgrounds came through a small town in Iowa and learned how to be better baseball players.  Along the way they also became better people. You don’t have to love baseball or even sports to learn from the magic that happened in southwestern Iowa.”
—Joe Buck, FOX Sports broadcaster

______________________________________________________________________
Ollie Krueger’s days as a punk kid practicing street magic are mostly behind her. Now she’s a butcher at Carnage, a high end restaurant offering deconstructed takes on meat, and on the busiest nights of the week she and her partner, Guychardson, race to see who can produce more finished cuts. Ollie’s the better butcher, but somehow Guychardson almost always wins. And Ollie thinks maybe it’s because the mysterious knife he uses is magic.

“With The Insides, Jeremy P. Bushnell doesn’t so much mash genres together as slice them apart to find the filets. It’s a literary urban fantasy with sharp things to say about the way we live now, darkened by a touch of Scandinavian thriller: rich and urgent and weird, a novel that defies categorization but demands to be consumed.”
—Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore

The Insides begins with all the freewheeling magic and humor of The Weirdness, then ups the ante with danger, suspense, and rich emotional resonance. If you love fierce, witchy leading ladies, facing down evil, and traveling to strange realms that will explain your life before they haunt you forever, this is the book for you.”
—Alyssa Harad, author of Coming to My Senses

Featured Audio Giveaway – APRIL 2016 – The Infidel Stain

April 1st, 2016 by cmcneil · Featured Audio Giveaways

HB1095_InfidelStain_A
The Infidel Stain
Book 2 in the Blake and Avery Mystery series
By M. J. Carter
Read by Alex Wyndham

London, 1841. Returned from their adventures in India, Jeremiah Blake and William Avery have both had their difficulties adapting to life in Victorian England. Moreover, time and distance have weakened the close bond between them, forged in the jungles of India. Then a shocking series of murders in the world of London’s gutter press forces them back together.

The police seem mysteriously unwilling to investigate, then connections emerge between the murdered men and the growing and unpredictable movement demanding the right to vote for all. In the back streets of Drury Lane, among criminals, whores, pornographers, and missionaries, Blake and Avery must race against time to find the culprit before he kills again. But what if the murderer is being protected by some of the highest powers in the land?

“Outstanding . . . Carter excels at incorporating the volatile politics of the time into her cleverly constructed plot, which repeatedly confounds readers’ expectations while presenting moving scenes of the plight of London’s poor reminiscent of Dickens.” —Publishers Weekly Starred Review

March 8th, 2016 by cmcneil · Uncategorized

On the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth, comes the definitive biography of this extraordinary novelist, by acclaimed literary biographer Claire Harman.

“[Harman] vividly portrays a life of loneliness, anguish, tragedy, and suppressed rage in serene and elegant prose with frequent flashes of ironic humor; the underlying scholarship is extensive but never obtrusive. A delightfully engaging biography of a highly talented but deeply troubled prodigy of English literature.” —Kirkus Starred Reviews
