The previous two books, also narrated by Elizabeth, are available as well. This superb fantasy series, published by Talem Press and released in audiobook format by Tantor Audio, has already garnered multiple five-star reviews at Audible.

The Scions roam free, and only the sorceress can hunt them…

After the battle with storm god Molech Suun, a city is in ruins and a new Archmage holds the Syndicate’s leash. But while Gwyn has accepted her fate – to hunt down and destroy the remaining Scions – her loyalty is still to her old master Faolan, held captive by a cunning necromancer.

Saving Faolan means leaving the wizards and the Clockwork City behind. With the shapeshifter Lucian at her side, Gwyn embarks on a dangerous journey across the sea, to lands where pirate kings rule and wild magic sings.

But sorceresses are heir to a dark legacy of blood – and Gwyn soon finds that she’s the one being hunted.

The Scions want her dead, and a new enemy sends threats and warnings that can’t be ignored. As Gwyn struggles to balance her desires and her destiny, she finds herself unprepared for what awaits her beyond the city walls. And far to the south, amid the ashes of a fallen kingdom, a familiar foe is setting deadly plans in motion…

New release today at Audible! The Last Sketch is Gosia Nealon’s debut novel, a dramatic, romantic, and adventurous tale of love and resistance during World War II. You can listen to a sample from the audiobook via the link above, and learn more about Gosia at her website. This project was released by Spoken Realms.

They both hold tight to a terrible secret. When they cross paths in war-torn Europe, will their destinies lead to ruin…or victory over evil?

Poland, 1944. Wanda Odwaga will never stop resisting. As the Nazis occupy her beloved homeland, the 23-year-old artist vows to do whatever it takes to help the underground movement mobilize against Hitler’s forces. But she’s devastated when the Gestapo storms her house in search of rebel leaders, killing her heroic father and leaving the face of his murderer forever etched in her mind.

New York. Finn Keller longs to balance the scales. Having escaped Germany with his mother as a teen, he’s disgusted his estranged twin brother has become a ruthless Nazi henchman with a vicious reputation. So when a covert government agency approaches him with a dangerous undercover mission, Finn willingly risks his life to play his part in turning the tide of war.

Still grieving her unforgivable loss, Wanda’s thirst for revenge takes an unexpected leap forward when she once again encounters her father’s killer. And as Finn dives deeply into the role of impersonating his cold-hearted sibling, he’s captivated by the beautiful Polish woman frozen in front of him…her eyes blazing with the promise of murder.

Can these two players in a deadly game survive the ravages of a sadistic conflict?

The Last Sketch is a breathtaking World War II historical fiction novel. If you like engaging characters, exhilarating espionage, and a dash of enemy-to-lovers romance, then you’ll enjoy Gosia Nealon’s powerful drama.

It’s spooky season… and what better way to celebrate than with a classic ghost story? Elizabeth plays the Governess in Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, a dramatic reading by The Online Stage, now available at Audible. Featuring Danielle Cohen, Amanda Friday, Miranda Hodges, Rob Goll, Josh Innerst, and Jeff Moon.

Henry James’ 1898 novella is one of the world’s greatest ghost stories. Told by an unnamed governess who accepts a position looking after two children at a remote English country manor, the story is famously ambiguous. The governess gradually comes to believe that the house – and the two seemingly angelic children, Miles and Flora – are haunted by the ghosts of her predecessor and her brutish lover. But are the ghosts actually real? Or is the governess slowly going mad?

Book #13 (!) in the Ginger Gold mystery series is now available at Audible, Libro.fm, and elsewhere. Elizabeth has narrated all of the books in this series so far, and will soon begin production on #14, Murder in Hyde Park. Fans of 1920s British mysteries will love this series about an intrepid fashionista solving crimes in London and beyond.

Murder’s a beach!

A family holiday turns deadly at Brighton Beach.

When Ginger and Basil and their family check into the Brighton Beach Boutique Hotel on a lovely warm day in June of 1926, a shocking discovery upsets their plans to relax in the sun and surf. There’s a murderer amongst the holidayers: Is it the starlet? The earl? The disgruntled businessman?

In this Agatha Christie-style addition to the Ginger Gold Mystery series, not only will Ginger not finish her book, she and Basil might not get out of the hotel alive.

Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of Dead City by James Ponti, the first in a trilogy of middle grade novels about a 12-year-old zombie killer – now available at Libro.fm, Audible, and elsewhere. The next installment, Blue Moon, is available for pre-order at Audible and Libro.fm, and the final book in the series, Dark Days, is coming soon! Molly Bigelow is an awesome, kick-ass young heroine.

A tween takes on undead New Yorkers in this paranormal action-adventure that “breathes new life into the zombie genre” (Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games).

Most kids have enough to deal with between school, homework, extracurricular activities, and friends, but Molly Bigelow isn’t your typical tween. By day, Molly attends MIST – the Metropolitan Institute of Science and Technology – but it’s what she’s learning outside of school that sets her apart from her classmates. Molly is a zombie hunter, just like her mother.

This, however, is news to Molly. Now she must come to terms with not only the idea that zombies exist, but also that they’re everywhere, and it’s her job to help police them and keep the peace. Sure, she’d like to be a regular kid, but “regular” just isn’t possible when it turns out the most revered (or feared, depending on your perspective) zombie hunter in the history of New York City is your mother. It seems Molly’s got some legendary footsteps to follow….

The next installment in the Complete Sherlock Holmes series from The Online Stage has been released at Audible!

Elizabeth’s latest release is a new production from The Online Stage: a full-cast dramatic reading of Virginia Woolf’s classic novel Mrs. Dalloway, now available at Audible. Elizabeth narrates alongside a stellar cast, including Lillian Rachel as Clarissa Dalloway, Rob Goll as Peter Walsh, Josh Innerst as Septimus Warren Smith, and Nancy Peterson as Rezia Warren Smith.

Woolf’s 1925 novel takes place over the course of a single June day in the lives of some very different Londoners: wealthy society hostess Clarissa Dalloway, who is preparing for a party; her old friend Peter Walsh, recently returned from India, whose proposal of marriage Clarissa rejected years ago; Septimus Warren Smith, a WWI veteran suffering from shell shock; and his Italian-born wife, Rezia, who is trying to care for him as best she can. Woolf’s beautiful prose captures the minds and souls of these vivid characters, who exist simultaneously in a fractured present and in their pasts, as well as the beating heart of a city and a nation still reeling from the cataclysm of the Great War.

One of Elizabeth’s most recent releases is A Hole in the Sky, the first book in the Arkship Trilogy by best-selling sci-fi author Peter F. Hamilton. This is an audio-exclusive project released by Tantor Audio, available at Libro.fm and Audible, and elsewhere.

Audiofile Magazine gave the production an excellent review, which you can read here. “Klett’s animated portrayal of Hazel is captivating, and her excellent pacing maintains momentum. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment in this engaging audio-original series.”

Please stop by all of these wonderful blogs and say hello this week! Wonder Tales has already received several excellent reviews – at Audiobook Reviewer, and Lomeraniel Audiobook Reviews.

Elizabeth’s second solo release this year for Spoken Realms (following Wonder Tales) is The Experiences of Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective by C. L. Pirkis. These are classic Victorian British detective stories starring “the female Sherlock Holmes.” Right now, the audiobook is available exclusively at Audible, but will release more widely in the new year.

Loveday Brooke is the first female detective created by a woman writer. Catherine Louisa Pirkis published stories about this smart, spirited sleuth in the 1880s, and they were collected into this anthology in 1894. In these tales, Loveday takes on cases involving wayward nuns, missing debutantes, a mysterious princess, and a ghost who resembles Napoleon, among other strange phenomena. Throughout, she is insightful, professional, and simply more intelligent than anyone else around her, indicating that Loveday and Pirkis were both ahead of their time. This collection includes seven stories: “The Black Bag Left on a Doorstep”, “The Murder at Troyte’s Hill”, “The Redhill Sisterhood”, “A Princess’ Vengeance”, “Drawn Daggers”, “The Ghost of Fountain Lane”, and “Missing”.
