I was very pleasantly surprised to listen to this book - great main characters, fast paced steampunk mystery. The narration is great, and James Langton does a very good job depicting the different characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as a funny light mystery, and am about to explore Pip Ballantine's other novels.
This is a beautiful, complex novel set in a fictional mediaeval world, probably the same world as his Sarantine series, but in a different area. Like most books by this author, the characters are complex, and the plot weaves richly together towards a stunning ending. It is very well read. Highly recommended.
Yet another excellent Marla Mason Novel - this time telling the story of her arrival in Fellport and how she becomes Chief Sorcerer. No complaints about this one, just waiting for the next one to come...
This was a very interesting book, reminding me of some of Sherri Tepper's works. This book outlines a conflict between a patriarchal military culture and a water world populated by women whose technology is biologically based. The book moves slowly, but as I kept listening I was drawn into the story of how these two cultures interact.
This beautiful book made me cry! Euan Morton narrates this story of a land populated by peoples of three faiths, torn by war. The characters are memorable, and their intertwined stories make you think about the meaning of honour and love. The setting is an alternate world which is similar to mediaeval Spain.
Jo Walton is an excellent author, and this first book of her Small Change trilogy was great. It is well narrated with two narrators (male and female). If you like alternate political histories and murders, you will like this book. There is both political and religious tension, and I certainly wouldn't like to live in this alternate Britain.
This was a surprisingly good listen! A fast-paced action story of a man who gets caught in a world of monsters hidden from most of us. There are a lot of guns, lots of combat, and some great characters.
This was a really interesting book. It starts out quite slow, and for a while I was wondering if I had mistakenly bought a book that was not science fiction. However, it is well worth persisting as the mystery unfolds. This story has some very interesting characters, and builds to a fantastic conclusion. I won't spoil it, but any book which has Telsa and Chthulhu is worth a listen! Ray Porter does a good job of narration.
I loved this book! This is a clever and fast-paced mix of London Police and magic. Great characters and story. The reader does an amazing job of all the different voices and accents. I could hardly bear to pause the book and go into work! Well worth buying.
This is the first of TA Pratt's Marla Mason Series. I started this after hearing a Marla Mason Story on Podcastle, and I'm so glad I bought this book. I guess the genre is urban sorcery, set in a fictional modern city in North America. The characters are flawed and interesting, particularly Marla. If you like the Harry Dresden books, I think you'd like this series. The reading is well done.
This was my first novel by John Scalzi and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Wil Wheaton does a great job reading it. This science fiction novel is a dryly funny, action-packed story of intercultural politics. Worth a listen
