The Mermaid's Daughter: A Novel Audiobook

The Mermaid's Daughter: A Novel

A modern-day expansion of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, this unforgettable debut novel weaves a spellbinding tale of magic and the power of love as a descendent of the original mermaid fights the terrible price of saving herself from a curse that has affected generations of women in her family. Kathleen has always been dramatic. She suffers from the bizarre malady of experiencing stabbing pain in her feet. On her sixteenth birthday, she woke screaming from the sensation that her tongue had been cut out. No doctor can find a medical explanation for her pain, and even the most powerful drugs have proven useless. Only the touch of seawater can ease her pain, and just temporarily at that. Now Kathleen is a twenty-five-year-old opera student in Boston and shows immense promise as a soprano. Her girlfriend Harry, a mezzo in the same program, worries endlessly about Kathleen's phantom pain and obsession with the sea. Kathleen's mother and grandmother both committed suicide as young women, and Harry worries they suffered from the same symptoms. When Kathleen suffers yet another dangerous breakdown, Harry convinces Kathleen to visit her hometown in Ireland to learn more about her family history. In Ireland, they discover that the mystery—and the tragedy—of Kathleen’s family history is far older and stranger than they could have imagined. Kathleen’s fate seems sealed, and the only way out is a terrible choice between a mermaid’s two sirens—the sea, and her lover. But both choices mean death… Haunting and lyrical, The Mermaid’s Daughter asks—how far we will go for those we love? And can the transformative power of music overcome a magic that has prevailed for generations?

Atlantos: The Early Erthe Chronicles Audiobook

Atlantos: The Early Erthe Chronicles

Author: Robin Maxwell Narrator: Suzan Crowley Release Date: May 2016

Inspired by the writings of Plato 12,000 years in the past... On two primeval sister planets, two magnificent civilizations hurtle towards their cataclysmic destinies. Poseidon and Athens Ra are the two rival brothers who govern them. They possess advanced technos and all-too-human passions. Are they gods or are they men? Level-headed Terresian explorer and scientist Poseidon Ra commands an expedition to Erthe where a routine genetic protocol on the aboriginal population has unexpectedly triggered a staggering leap in human evolution. He quickly realizes that he's traveled 940 million miles across the solar system only to fall in love with a planet and its exceptionally advanced, exquisite native daughter. Sensualist and bad boy Athens Ra has been tasked with governing the mining colony of Mars-a life-sustaining mission crucial to the survival of the home world. The drilling spawns riches beyond imagining and enemies that are the stuff of nightmares. One brother discovers a love that will change the course of history; the other finds monsters, madness, and death. "Lost civilizations, the manipulation of human evolution, monsters, and a high-tech colony on Mars-these, and a brilliant literary style add up to make Atlantos an instant classic and a science fiction masterpiece!"-Ronald Shusett, writer-producer of Alien and Total Recall

Speak: A Novel Audiobook

Speak: A Novel

A thoughtful, poignant novel that explores the creation of Artificial Intelligence, illuminating the very human need for communication, connection, and understanding. In a narrative that spans geography and time, from the Atlantic Ocean in the seventeenth century, to a correctional institute in Texas in the near future, and told from the perspectives of five very different characters, Speak considers what it means to be human, and what it means to be less than fully alive. A young Puritan woman travels to the New World with her unwanted new husband. Alan Turing, the renowned mathematician and code breaker, writes letters to his best friend's mother. A Jewish refugee and professor of computer science struggles to reconnect with his increasingly detached wife. An isolated and traumatized young girl exchanges messages with an intelligent software program. A former Silicon Valley Wunderkind is imprisoned for creating illegal lifelike dolls. Each of these characters is attempting to communicate across gaps, to estranged spouses, lost friends, future readers, or a computer program that may or may not understand them. In dazzling and electrifying prose, Louisa Hall explores how the chasm between computer and human, shrinking rapidly with today's technological advances, echoes the gaps that exist between ordinary people. Though each speaks from a distinct place and moment in time, all five characters share the need to express themselves while simultaneously wondering if they will ever be heard, or understood.

Ostrich: A Novel Audiobook

Ostrich: A Novel

Author: Matt Greene Narrator: Matthew Frow, Suzan Crowley Release Date: August 2013

A brilliant and moving coming-of-age story in the tradition of Wonder by R. J. Palacio and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon—this debut novel is written with tremendous humor and charm. This is Alex’s story. But he doesn’t know exactly what it’s about yet, so you probably shouldn’t either. Instead, here are some things that it’s sort of about (but not really): It’s sort of (but not really) about brain surgery. It’s sort of (but not really) about a hamster named Jaws 2 (after the original Jaws (who died), not the movie Jaws 2). It’s sort of (but actually quite a lot) about Alex’s parents. It’s sort of (but not really) about feeling ostrichized (which is a better word for excluded (because ostriches can’t fly so they often feel left out)). It’s sort of (but not really (but actually, the more you think about it, kind of a lot)) about empathy (which is like sympathy only better), and also love and trust and fate and time and quantum mechanics and friendship and exams and growing up. And it’s also sort of about courage. Because sometimes it actually takes quite a lot of it to bury your head in the sand. Advance praise for Ostrich “Irresistible! Ostrich is loaded with wit, charm, and wisdom. Alex is one of the sweetest and most inspiring narrators I’ve ever encountered. I dare you not to laugh, cry, and fall utterly in love.”—Maria Semple, New York Times bestselling author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette? “One of the bravest novels I’ve read in a very long time. Matt Greene lets the reader become detective, and clue by clue we uncover not only the truth of Alex’s world, but the deepest truths of what it means to love and lose.”—Carol Rifka Brunt, author of Tell the Wolves I’m Home “Ostrich has given me the most enjoyable reading experience I’ve had all year and has one of the funniest and most engaging young narrators I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Matt Greene is seriously funny and in Ostrich proves comedy can be the finest of arts.”—Matt Haig, author of The Humans

Knight Awakened

Author: Coreene Callahan Narrator: Suzan Crowley Release Date: December 2012

In AD 1331, warlord Vladimir Barbu seizes control of Transylvania. But in spite of his bloody triumph, his claim to the throne remains out of reach. The king of Hungary opposes his rule, the Transylvanian people despise his brutal ways, and the high priestess needed to crown him has vanished without a trace. But Barbu hasn't come this far only to be thwarted by a woman. He unleashes his best hunters to track her down and bring her to him - dead or alive. For Xavian Ramir, killing is the only life he has ever known. Torn from his family when he was a child, he was trained from an early age to be an elite assassin. But now he longs for something more, vowing to start anew after one last job. The bounty on his target's head is enough to set him up for good - if he can resist the long-dead conscience that stirs to life when he meets his beautiful mark. Afina Lazar never wanted to become high priestess, but the brutal murders of her beloved mother and sister leave her no choice. Now she is running for her life, desperate to protect the magical amulet entrusted to her care. But when Barbu's assassin comes for her, she realizes her only chance of stopping the warlord's rise to power is to convince this enigmatic - and handsome - hunter that she is more valuable alive than dead. Dramatic and fast-paced, Knight Awakened is a stirring love story between two people searching for a second chance in a magical world of assassins, warlords, unearthly beasts, and nonstop adventure.

The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn

Author: Robin Maxwell Narrator: Suzan Crowley Release Date: September 2012

Both were passionate, headstrong women, loved and hated by Henry VIII. At the beginning of Elizabeth's reign, her mother's private diary is given to her by a mysterious lady. In reading it, the young ruler - herself embroiled in a dangerous love affair - discovers a great deal about her much maligned mother.

"A wonderfully juicy historical novel so convincing that it's difficult to believe it is the author's first. . . . Maxwell brings . . . all of bloody Tudor England vividly to life." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "An historical fiction classic. Beware: this is truly addictive reading." - Michelle Moran, author of Madame Tussaud "Dazzling. Historical fiction at its finest." - C. W. Gortner, author of The Confessions of Catherine de' Medici

Jane Audiobook

Jane

Author: Robin Maxwell Narrator: Suzan Crowley Release Date: September 2012

The only female student in Cambridge University's medical program, Jane Porter is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin. When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck. Africa is every bit as exotic and fascinating as she has always imagined, but Jane quickly learns that the lush jungle is full of secrets-and so is Ral Conrath. When danger strikes, Jane finds her hero, the key to humanity's past, and an all-consuming love in one extraordinary man: Tarzan of the Apes. Jane is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marks the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes. "This stunning sequel to TARZAN is outstanding in its scope and pageantry.... Suzan Crowley is magnificent with her portrayals of the narrator and the protagonist. Her voice develops the Tarzan personality as she teaches him to speak English, and we hear him progress from tentative childish pronunciations to mastering entire sentences and concepts.... For anyone who grew up with the original Tarzan and for all the new legions of fantasy and sci-fi lovers." -AudioFile
