God of God Audiobook

God of God

Author: Mark Kraver Narrator: E-Audioproductions.Com Release Date: June 2019

Being the smartest cadet in the Elohim Academy on Omega Prime was no big deal for the boy named Yahweh. The only reason he majored in both galactology and the galacticNet was that he enjoyed exploring the future. He was removed from his surrogate family on his first birthday because they were human, and he was Elohim. While human children could only dream of keeping up with the superior mind of a Elohim, the policy was to set apart the Elohim children from the inferior human breeding stock. But he felt more connected to his human family than his Elohim, giving him an odd, more sensitive nature amongst his peers. Graduation changed everything. His galacticNet session was disturbed by Headmaster Zenn with his first mission: a rescue mission to Earth. On Earth he finds new friends and family. His adventure blasts into exciting and calamitous sci-fi through three universes full of time travel, space bugs, terrestrial mollusks, and zombies. Yahweh searches for his destiny that's been waiting for him with the meaning of life ... if he can survive the future he had already lived to see.

"Bates brilliantly concludes an impressive high fantasy trilogy with this tale of scheming and magic."-Publishers Weekly (starred review) Sophy Dunbarron-the illegitimate daughter of a king who never was-has always felt like an impostor. Separated from her birth mother, raised by parents mourning the loss of their true daughter, and unacknowledged by her father, Sophy desires only a place and a family to call her own. But fate has other ideas. Caught up in Elanna Valtai's revolution, Sophy has become the reigning monarch of a once-divided country-a role she has been groomed her whole life to fill. But as she quickly discovers, wearing a crown is quite a different thing from keeping a crown. With an influx of magic-bearing refugees pouring across the border, resources already thinned by war are stretched to the breaking point. Half the nobility in her court want her deposed, and the other half question her every decision. And every third person seems to be spontaneously manifesting magical powers. When Elanna is captured and taken to Paladis, Sophy's last ally seems to have vanished. Now it is up to her alone to navigate a political maze that becomes more complex and thorny by the day. And worse, Sophy is hiding a huge secret-one that could destroy her tenuous hold on the crown forever.

FKA USA: A Novel Audiobook

FKA USA: A Novel

Author: Reed King Narrator: Dan Bittner, Peter Ganim Release Date: June 2019

'An epically concocted apocalyptic vision of America in all its faded glory.' - Kirkus '...a visionary head-trip of apocalyptic political satire; a kitchen sink quest story that reads like someone's high school RPG session gone full-on Technicolor bonkers." - NPR.org Reed King's amazingly audacious audiobook is something of a cross between L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz, Douglas Adams's A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Cormac McCarthy's The Road, and Ernest Cline's Ready Player One. In Reed King's wildly imaginative and possibly prescient debut, the United States has dissolved in the wake of environmental disasters and the catastrophic policies of its final president. It is 2085, and Truckee Wallace, a factory worker in Crunchtown 407 (formerly Little Rock, Arkansas, before the secessions), has no grand ambitions besides maybe, possibly, losing his virginity someday. But when Truckee is thrust unexpectedly into the spotlight he is tapped by the President for a sensitive political mission: to deliver a talking goat across the continent. The fate of the world depends upon it. The problem is-Truckee's not sure it's worth it. Joined on the road by an android who wants to be human and a former convict lobotomized in Texas, Truckee will navigate an environmentally depleted and lawless continent with devastating-and hilarious-parallels to our own, dodging body pickers and Elvis-worshippers and logo girls, body subbers, and VR addicts. Elvis-willing, he may even lose his virginity. FKA USA is the epic audiobook we've all been waiting for about the American end of times, with its unavoidable sense of being on the wrong end of the roller coaster ride. It is a masterwork of ambition, humor, and satire with the power to make us cry, despair, and laugh out loud all at once. It is a tour de force unlike anything else you will listen to this year.
