2 Couriers & a Comet | New Audiobook Releases

New Releases

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.)

A very slow week. Note: I am putting the The Scions of Shannara rerelease into "Buzzed About," despite the fact that I hadn't heard about it, since it is such a popular series. I believe that this is a completely new edition with a different narrator.

On the Edge of Gone

"January 29, 2035. That's the day the comet is scheduled to hit - the big one. Denise and her mother and sister, Iris, have been assigned to a temporary shelter outside their hometown of Amsterdam to wait out the blast, but Iris is nowhere to be found, and at the rate Denise's drug-addicted mother is going, they'll never reach the shelter in time. A last-minute meeting leads them to something better than a temporary shelter - a generation ship scheduled to leave Earth behind to colonize new worlds after the comet hits. "

Rust & Relics, Book #2: Thorn Fall

By: Lindsay Buroker / Narrator: Nola Zandry / Length: 10:18

"Delia never thought her love of adventure and artifact hunting would lead her to discover such oddities as man-slaying monsters, magical swords, and elves on motorcycles. Oh, and there's also the ancient Spartan warrior who's been stranded in the present - he's offering to work as her bodyguard in exchange for English lessons. She's barely wrapped her mind around these strange new developments when another monster arrives, this time in Sedona, Arizona. "
