Evolution Cradle: The Aryan Origin Audiobook

Evolution Cradle: The Aryan Origin

Author: Dr. Charith Venkat Pidikiti Narrator: Reece Bernard Release Date: August 2021

When two Genetics scientists, Chad and Friedrich reach a dead-end in their cross-species experiment at a premier Molecular Genetics Institute in Berlin, they look to the mystical East for answers. Here, in the lap of a timeless civilization, they find a fellow seeker in historian Geeta. Together, the trio begin a thrilling odyssey of discovery, which spans continents and cultures, challenges life-long religious and scientific truths and puts their lives in grave danger. They are horrified to learn that they are mere puppets, their fate controlled by an all-seeing sinister villain, who yearns to “cleanse” the world and create a new order. As they connect the dots, they join forces with an Afghan professor, a British archaeologist and an American General. Finally, a mind-bending, unpredictable climax which stuns even the world’s brightest minds… Where do we come from? Why did the gods stop visiting us? Why did nuclear weapons exist 20,000 years ago? Were we created in a test tube?Even as it answers many questions, it throws up new ones. Based on two years of research, The Evolution Cradle is an unputdownable book, which blurs the lines between reality and imagination, ancient and modern, fact and faith. Breathless in its pace, the rollercoaster narrative is packed with non-stop action, escapes and chases, thrills and chills, and edge-of-the-seat twists and turns. It continues to haunt the reader long after the last page is turned.

Isaac's Beacon Audiobook

Isaac's Beacon

Author: David L. Robbins Narrator: George Guidall Release Date: August 2021

In the tradition of epic novels like Exodus and Cast a Giant Shadow, Isaac's Beacon is a sweeping historical tale based on the real events of Israel's founding bringing alive the power and complexities of the birth of the Jewish state out of the ashes of the Holocaust. Bestselling author David L. Robbins, called "the Homer of World War II," turns his mastery of the historical novel to another defining moment of the twentieth century: the birth of the state of Israel. Isaac's Beacon is a small, vulnerable kibbutz on the edge of the Negev. Here, the lives of three memorable characters-an Irgun fighter, a young woman farmer, and an American journalist-collide to shape an epic narrative of love, loss, violence, and courage. Deeply researched and closely based on actual events, Isaac's Beacon is the first in a series of Robbins's novels which will explore the tumultuous, complex history and lasting impact of Israel's creation.

Trust none. Risk all. Richmond, Virginia, 1863. Compelled to atone for the sins of her slaveholding father, Union loyalist Sophie Kent risks everything to help end the war from within the Confederate capital and abolish slavery forever. But she can't do it alone. Former slave Bella Jamison sacrifices her freedom to come to Richmond, where her Union soldier husband is imprisoned, and her twin sister still lives in bondage in Sophie's home. Though it may cost them their lives, they work with Sophie to betray Rebel authorities. Harrison Caldwell, a Northern freelance journalist who escorts Bella to Richmond, infiltrates the War Department as a clerk-but is conscripted to defend the city's fortifications. As Sophie's spy network grows, she walks a tightrope of deception, using her father's position as newspaper editor and a suitor's position in the ordnance bureau for the advantage of the Union. One misstep could land her in prison, or worse. Suspicion hounds her until she barely even trusts herself. When her espionage endangers the people she loves, she makes a life-and-death gamble. Will she follow her convictions even though it costs her everything - and everyone - she holds dear?

The Gamble

Author: Lavyrle Spencer Narrator: Emily Sutton-Smith Release Date: August 2021

A story of honesty and humor for anyone who has ever lived and loved from New York Times bestselling author LaVyrle Spencer. Agatha was the picture of primness and propriety, but her green eyes could blaze with anger-or sparkle with humor. Scott was the picture of lazy charm and happy indifference to what others thought was right and wrong. They were enemies, then friends. Then the sweet innocence of a child opened their eyes and their hearts-and they were reborn in each other's arms by the soft, wondrous gift of love.

Die Pest zu London Audiobook

Die Pest zu London

Author: Daniel Dafoe Narrator: Norbert Wendel Release Date: July 2021

Daniel Dafoe zählte zu den produktivsten und erfolgreichsten Autoren des 18. Jahrhunderts. Mit der Erzählung über den schiffbrüchigen „Robinson Crusoe“ bereicherte Dafoe die Literaturgeschichte. Von vielen wird aber sein Pest-Tagebuch, dass die Ereignisse in und um London, während der großen, verheerenden Pestwelle von 1665/66 schildert, für Defoes beste Arbeit gehalten. Um ungefähr ein Fünftel wurde die Bevölkerung der britischen Hauptstadt während dieser Zeit dezimiert. Die Detailfülle dieses Buch verführte selbst wohlunterrichtete Wissenschaftler dazu, in ihm eine historische Quelle für die damaligen Zustände zu sehen. Dafoe besaß im allerhöchsten Maße die Gabe, die man »Wirklichkeitsphantasie« nennen könnte, d. h. die Fähigkeit, sich in eine erdichtete und bloß vorgestellte Umwelt ganz und gar hineinzuversetzen und so völlig in ihr aufzugehen, als ob er tatsächlich darin zu leben und sich ihr anzupassen hätte.

Reputation: 'If Bridgerton and Fleabag had a book baby' Sarra Manning Audiobook

Reputation: 'If Bridgerton and Fleabag had a book baby' Sarra Manning

Author: Lex Croucher Narrator: Bessie Carter Release Date: July 2021

It is a truth universally acknowledged that girls just wanna have fun. Abandoned by her parents in favour of a sea view, middle class Georgiana Ellers has moved to a new town to live with her dreary aunt and uncle. At a particularly dull dinner party, she meets the enigmatic Frances Campbell, a wealthy socialite and enchanting member of the in-crowd. Through Frances and her friends, Georgiana is introduced to a new world of wild parties, drunken debauchery, mysterious young men with strangely alluring hands, and the sparkling upper echelons of Regency society. But high society isn't all it's cracked up to be, and the price of entry might be more than Georgiana is willing to pay . . . This witty romcom about status, friendship, and first loves explores sex and consent in a time when reputation was absolutely everything, and feminism in a time when women's rights were a completely different story. It's full of lavish parties, handsome men on horseback and a sense of humour that would have given Austen herself a chuckle. Performed by Bessie Carter (Bridgerton, Beecham House, Howard's End). 'A spirited Regency romcom, which tears up the Regency romcom rulebook! If Bridgerton and Fleabag had a book baby, it would be Reputation. I inhaled it in one sitting' Sarra Manning 'I had so much fun reading Reputation. It's a total blast' Louise O'Neill 'The perfect blend of period drama decadence with Mean Girls gossip. Beyond entertaining - high debauchery with a feminist swing' Abigail Mann
