Each week there are dozens of scifi, fantasy, and other speculative fiction audiobooks released. I highlight the most talked about and/or interesting looking ones from that week. The first person to correctly identify which 3 books below I took the key words in the title from will get a virtual shout-out in next week's post & tweet. (I'm doing this to try and make it more fun for me to improve my titles.)

Congratulations to Book Cupidity who won the title game last week by correctly identifying the 3 books I pulled my post title from.
Being released this week are the final novels in two popular series: "The Long Earth" #5 by Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter and "Temeraire" #9 by Naomi Novik. Will you be sad to see them go?
Brotherband, Book #6: The Ghostfaces
By: John A Flanagan / Narrator: John Keating / Pub: Listening Library / Length: 10:54
"When the Brotherband crew are caught in a massive storm at sea, they're blown far off course and wash up on the shores of a land so far west that Hal can't recognize it from any of his maps. Eerily, the locals are nowhere in sight, yet the Herons have a creeping feeling they are being watched."
The Long Earth, Book #5: The Long Cosmos
Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter / Narrator: Michael Fenton Stevens / Pub: Harper Audio / Length: 12:22
Machineries of Empire, Book #1: Ninefox Gambit
By: Yoon Ha Lee / Narrator: Emily Woo Zeller / Pub: Recorded Books / Length: 10:52
"To win an impossible war, Captain Kel Cheris must awaken an ancient weapon and a despised traitor general.
Captain Kel Cheris of the Hexarchate is disgraced for using unconventional methods in a battle against heretics. Kel Command gives her the opportunity to redeem herself by retaking the Fortress of Scattered Needles, a star fortress that has recently been captured by heretics. Cheris' career isn't the only thing at stake. If the fortress falls, the Hexarchate itself might be next."
Temeraire, Book #9: League of Dragons
By: Naomi Novik / Narrator: Simon Vance / Pub: Tantor Audio / Length: 12:15
"The deadly campaign in Russia has cost both Napoleon and those allied against him. Napoleon has been denied his victory…but at a terrible price. Lawrence and the dragon Temeraire pursue the fleeing French army back west, but are demoralized when Napoleon makes it back to Paris unscathed. Worse, they soon learn that the French have stolen Termeraire and Iskierka’s egg. Now, it is do or die, as our heroes not only need to save Temeraire’s offspring but also to stop Napoleon for good!"
