AFTERLIFE

by Marcus Sakey | Read by Finty Williams

Brilliance Audio | Unabridged
Fantasy

Narrator Finty Williams encounters an enormous challenge in Marcus Sakey's complex audiobook, which combines elements of the science fiction, thriller, and romance genres. While Williams delivers a strong performance, the novel would have been a prime candidate for multiple narrators as its plot shifts between character perspectives as well as the realm of the living and the...

DEADMEN WALKING

DEADMEN WALKING A Deadman's Cross Novel

by Sherrilyn Kenyon | Read by Holter Graham

Macmillan Audio | Unabridged
Fantasy

Sherrilyn Kenyon's new series debuts with a rocky start, but narrator Holter Graham gives it his all, delivering a performance that is better than the text. Graham draws on a seemingly limitless supply of different, growly voices to give life to the members of a demon-hunting crew of undead pirates. Graham works to keep the many passages of unadorned explication from becoming... Read More

SINS OF EMPIRE

SINS OF EMPIRE

by Brian McClellan | Read by Christian Rodska

Hachette Audio | Unabridged
Fantasy

The character of Mad Ben Styke comes to life in this audiobook. Narrator Christian Rodska portrays him with gruff tones as he faces the world and shifts to vulnerable-sounding gentleness in his interactions with an orphan girl he has taken under his protection. The second of the story's three protagonists is notable for his ongoing dialogue with himself, which Rodska presents... Read More
