Iambik just added three more titles to their collection. First up is one for the crime collection. Blackbird Fly by Lise McClendon is narrated by writer Denise Stradling. Newly widowed Merle Bennett decides to head for France for the summer to renovate the ancestral home. What she thought would be a few months of sunshine and wine turns into an uncovering of past secrets -- some best left hidden. "This is a book that . . . one might class as a literary suspense novel. A great deal goes into character growth and change, and McClendon’s obvious love for the French countryside is evident in her description of land and people. If one is looking for a slam-bang action yarn, look elsewhere; BLACKBIRD FLY is a rewarding read for the discerning. -- The GenReview.com
Chasing the Dragon by Nicholas Kaufmann is narrated by Alex Foster and features protagonist Georgia Quincey. At twenty-five years old, she's the last of the line. The line being that of St. George who, according to legend, supposedly slew a dragon. The problem is that he didn't and the Dragon still roams the earth. But Georgia is also an addict, driven to the warm embrace of the needle by the weight of her responsibility and the loss of everything and everyone she has ever loved. Now, it's up to her to discover the Dragon's secret and keep it from destroying all life on Earth. "Nicholas Kaufmann is one of my favorites. His books never disappoint, and Chasing the Dragon is no exception. Relentless and unflinching, Chasing the Dragon offers mayhem, meat puppets and one hell of a monster. Highly recommended! –Brian Keene, author of The Rising.
Collapse of the Veil by Alison Lohans and narrated by Arielle Lipshaw. This is the first book of the Passage through Time series. Sixteen year old Katie is an unwed mother living with her baby, her hyperactive brother and her own struggling single mother. One day Katie hops on her bike and flees the house to get away for awhile but, after brushing against an enchanted willow tree, she finds herself experiencing time travel -- to a dying world far in the future. This will be her future unless she can be the one to help save her two worlds. "A tenderly urgent journey through time, love, apocalypse and unexpected hope. Readers will emerge with new insights for our world's problems and possibilities." -Sharon Plumb, author of Draco's Child.
