Tumanbay: The Complete Series 1-4: The BBC Radio epic full-cast saga Audiobook

Tumanbay: The Complete Series 1-4: The BBC Radio epic full-cast saga

An engrossing, expansive historical fantasy drama, inspired by the Mamluk slave dynasty of Egypt Tumanbay: the wealthiest city on earth. The beating heart of a vast empire. A city of dreams, where those who once arrived as slaves now hold power, and merchants, artists and warriors live side-by-side in peace. But this magnificent city is under threat. A rebellion in a far-off province, led by 'Queen' Maya, is gathering strength - and a mysterious force is devouring the empire from within. Gregor, a merciless spymaster and Master of the Palace Guard, is charged by Sultan Al-Ghuri to crush the insurgence, as his brother General Qulan is dispatched to quell the provincial insurrection. But as well as rooting out traitors, Gregor must contend with his arch-rival, the cunning Grand Vizier, Cadali. Meanwhile, Heaven, the 14-year-old daughter of slave merchant Ibn, is adrift at sea, captive to an escaped slave on whom she depends for her survival. Madu, the Sultan's spoilt nephew, also has to grow up quickly as he swaps palace life for the army... As the wheel of fate turns, Tumanbay's fortunes suffer a terrible reversal. Beset by plague, assassins, invasion, occupation and revolution, the once-great city is riven by political intrigue and power struggles. As rulers are toppled and tyrants fall, who will survive and thrive - and who will die? A Game of Thrones-style epic with the sweep of The Arabian Nights, this compelling story of love, revenge, betrayal and deception won the Best Audio Serial Gold Award at the New York Radio Festival.

As time goes on he slides increasingly into this other side of his personality until it finally takes over, with disastrous consequences. As the determined Mr Utterson races to uncover the secret of the good Dr Jekyll's sinister new companion, the cosy Victorian world of wealth and comfort is discovered to be under siege.

The Great Ghost Rescue Audiobook

The Great Ghost Rescue

Author: Eva Ibbotson Narrator: John L. Sessions, John Sessions Release Date: June 2008

As a bloodcurlingly fearsome ghost, Humphrey the Horrible is a failure. He's not horrible at all. Instead of being ghastly and skeletal, he's pink and fluffy, like a summer cloud. He longs to be like his brother, who's a Screaming Skull. Or his father, who has stumps for legs and a sword through his chest. Or even his cousins who are like vampire bats. Poor Humphrey, though, can't scare anyone. But when the ghosts are in danger, it's clever Humphrey who comes up with a rescue plan. . . Read aloud by actor John Sessions, The Great Ghost Race is a wonderfully spooky young-fiction title from the award-winning author of Journey to the River Sea, Eva Ibbotson. 'This kind of fun will never fail to delight' Philip Pullman

There's just one problem: Randalf has lost his spell book. He's just got a fragment of paper with half a spell on it - telling him how to summon a Great Warrior Hero. The last one, Quentin the Cake-Baker, wasn't a great success. But this time, it's going to be different. And life is about to change beyond recognition for an ordinary schoolboy on ordinary earth - Joe Jefferson - and his dog, Henry. Welcome to a world of ogres and goblins, batbirds and pink stinky hogs, flying cupboards and terrifying teddy bears . . .
