This, my second week of posting New Releases, has a much smaller selection; but it does feature my 1st “Straight to My Wishlist” selection, which also happens to be the sequel to a book I’ve just reviewed. (Ok, I confess, I scheduled things that way on purpose.) I've also added another new section called "It's About Time," which features popular, previously published, books newly available on audio.

"From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request - and possibly to do more - and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman posing as a doctor's wife but sent by Seressa as a spy."

"London has been destroyed in a blitz of bombs and disease. The only ones who have survived are children, among them Gwen Darling and her siblings, Joanna and Mikey. They spend their nights scavenging and their days avoiding the ruthless Marauders - the German army led by Captain Hanz Otto Oswald Kretschmer."
Forgotten Ages: The Complete Saga
By: Lindsay Buroker / Narrator: Tavia Gilbert / Pub: Podium Publishing / Length: 23:52
"The greatest military leader of his time. The most talented code breaker her people have. Sworn enemies. When deadly secrets from the ancient past are unearthed, secrets capable of fracturing the world and destroying all life on the planet, these two enemies will have to work together. They are humanity's only hope. Forgotten Ages is recommended for fans of epic fantasy, action-adventure, mystery, and romance."
The Taking, Book #3: The Countdown
By: Kimberly Derting / Narrator: Tavia Gilbert / Pub: Harper Audio / Length: 8:40
"Ever since Kyra was abducted by aliens and then returned to Earth, she has known there was something different about her. Now she knows the truth: She is an alien, too. Her alien captors replaced all her human DNA with their own - gifting her with supernatural powers like incredible healing, enhanced eyesight, and telekinesis. But when she's captured by an unexpected enemy, Kyra begins to wonder if her abilities are also a curse."
Terra Ignota, Book #1: Too Like the Lightning
By: Ada Palmer / Narrator: Jefferson Mays / Pub: Recorded Books / Length: 20:16
"Mycroft Canner is a convict. For his crimes he is required, as is the custom of the 25th century, to wander the world being as useful as he can to all he meets. Carlyle Foster is a sensayer–a spiritual counselor in a world that has outlawed the public practice of religion, but which also knows that the inner lives of humans cannot be wished away."
It's About Time
(Popular Books that are now available on Audio)
Darkness, Book #3: Dwellers of Darkness
By: Stacey Marie Brown / Narrator: Michelle Sparks / Length: 11:11
"Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin's case just the opposite is true. Em would be 22 now - if she were human. She's not. She is a Dae - part Demon and part Fay - with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her more of a freak. Life has become more complicated for Ember since returning from the Otherworld. Besides being continuously hunted by the Seelie Queen, Ember is at the top of the Unseelie King's list, after breaking her oath with him. No one breaks a vow with the Unseelie King without extreme consequences."
Steel & Stone, Book #4: Reap the Shadows
By: Annette Marie / Narrator: Jorjeana Marie / Pub: Tantor Audio / Length: 10:08
"Piper is feeling a bit overwhelmed. With Seiya and Lyre missing, Ash recovering from near fatal injuries, and the Gaians picking fights with daemons all over the city, a girl can't help but think she might be in over her head. And this time she's on her own. Before she even has a chance to investigate the Gaians' new stockpile of mysterious, high-tech weaponry, an old enemy ambushes her: Samael's henchman, Raum."
