Terraformer Audiobook

Terraformer

Author: Colleen Houck Narrator: Piper Goodeve Release Date: June 2020

Deadly toxins can be hidden inside the most beautiful flowers. That's what Astra Meador's famous biophysicist mother taught her. As her mother's apprentice, Astra has developed skills in botany, chemistry, medicine, and, most importantly, in keeping secrets. In fact, keeping Astra's secret was the reason her family decided to leave Earth and join a terraforming mission to colonize a distant planet called Crillain IV. But when Astra wakes early from hypersleep, she discovers that her mother never made it onboard and her father died in transit. When the ship lands and she's reunited with her brother, Nash, Astra hopes to settle into a new life, especially when she meets the charming engineer Jax and is recruited by the mission commander to train alongside his handsome son to be a future leader of the small colony. Then Astra learns that she's not the only one with a dark secret. As both young men contend for her affection, Astra searches for answers, trying to determine who to trust. But with the sudden disappearance of her beloved brother, Astra can't listen to the whisperings of her heart, especially when someone or something else on the planet is whispering to her mind even louder.

Welcome to a world where nightmarish creatures reign supreme. Five hundred years ago, Jack made a deal with the devil. It's difficult for him to remember much about his mortal days. So he focuses on fulfilling his sentence as a Lantern-one of the watchmen who guard the portals to the Otherworld, a realm crawling with every nightmarish creature imaginable. Jack has spent centuries jumping from town to town, ensuring that nary a mortal-or not-so-mortal-soul slips past him. That is, until he meets beautiful Ember O'Dare. Seventeen, stubborn, and a natural-born witch, Ember feels a strong pull to the Otherworld. Undeterred by Jack's warnings, she crosses into the forbidden plane with the help of a mysterious and debonair vampire-and the chase through a dazzling, dangerous world is on. Jack must do everything in his power to get Ember back where she belongs before both the earthly and unearthly worlds descend into chaos. Colleen Houck, the New York Times bestselling author of the Tigers Curse series and Reawakened series, breathes new life into classic folklore in this wild, twisting adventure propelled by the spirit of Halloween.

Reignited: A Companion to the Reawakened Series Audiobook

Reignited: A Companion to the Reawakened Series

Author: Colleen Houck Narrator: Kirby Heyborne Release Date: April 2017

Before Lily and Amon met, before the cosmos were in chaos and needed three brave brothers to fight off evil, there were four siblings who helped rule the earth. Each sibling had a special gift. Osiris, the god of agriculture, helped mortals to grow and thrive in their natural environment. Isis, the goddess of creation, fostered health and wellness. Nephthys, the seer, was able to keep the balance between all living beings and the universe. But Seth, the youngest sibling, was left without any special powers. The Waters of Chaos, which granted each god's talent, were running dry, and Seth was paying the price. As time passed, however, Seth's determination and willfulness resulted in a very special gift, one that should have granted him the ability to enact wondrous change. But Seth's competitive childhood gave him a heart so cold and vacant that instead, his gift brought about great evil. Seth was now the god of unmaking, the creator of disorder and destruction. And he was ready to seek his revenge, dominating all who got in his way.

A New York Times Bestseller! From Colleen Houck, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Curse, comes Recreated, the second book in the epic Egyptian-inspired Reawakened series, about a seventeen-year-old girl must literally go to hell to save the love of her life. Lily Young thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun prince was a grand adventure. Now she’s about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. When Amon and Lily part tragically, he transports himself to the Netherworld—what mortals call hell.

Yet she can feel Amon’s pain, and she has been having dreams—dreams of Amon continually suffering. For before he departed, Amon gave Lily something very special, an item that connects them even though they are worlds apart.
