Iambik keeps the science fiction coming...

Iambik Audiobooks just released books 1 and 2 of the Hexslinger series by Gemma Files.  This series is in the science fiction/fantasy genre.  Both books are narrated by the talented Gordon Mackenzie.  Book 1 is called A Book of Tongues and book 2 is entitled A Rope of Thorns.  If you like your sci/fi with a western twist, you're going to love this series.  Set just after the U.S. Civil War, these books are not for the squeamish. From Publisher's Weekly on book 1: "(A) boundary-busting horror-fantasy debut . . . Files smoothly weaves an unusual magic system, Aztec mythology, and a raunchily explicit gay love story into a classic western tale of outlaws and revenge . . . this promising debut fully delivers both sizzling passions and dark chills."

Book 2, A Rope of Thorns is the sequel to A Book of Tongues and begins in 1867 and continues the exploits of the same wild characters.  This from Library Journal regarding book 2: "This sequel to A Book of Tongues paints a stark, vivid, and gory picture of the 'wild west' in the years following the Civil War. . . . Filled with antiheroes, sacrificial victims, and supernatural beings, Files’s latest is not for the squeamish but should delight fans of gothic Western fantasy and Central American myths."

Narrator Gordon Mackenzie is already at work on Book 3 in the
Hexslinger series, A Tree of Bone, so if the first two books only whet your appetite -- don't worry, there's more to come.  Books 1 and 2 are available now at Iambik in mp3 and m4b formats.  At $6.99 each, you're in for a hell of a ride!
