Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

Where does FREE: The Jester (A Riyria Chronicles Tale) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was a short, free book that accompanied me on a jog. I had no previous knowledge of the world or background story of the characters, but it was still so very enjoyable.

It certainly made me eager to try more books from the author. And kudos to the narrator, he makes great voices!

Give it a try and I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

What did you love best about Tainted Cure?

I loved it that it isn't your regular zombie book, so if you're not a huge fan of this genre you might still want to give it a try.

What about Rebecca Roberts’s performance did you like?

Oh em gee, I wish I sounded as good as this woman! She sounds so effortlessly sexy and pleasant, and even her male voices are good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It actually was! I was very invested in the story, seeing the cure for addiction being warped into something horrible, and wondering how it'd all turn out.

Any additional comments?

I am familiar with the story behind this book, and that did not make it less enjoyable. I really enjoyed narration (Sian Thomas sounds so regal and dignified!), and the look into the life of Anna Anderson.
