The Raveling: The Complete Saga
- By: Alec Hutson
- Narrated by: Guy Williams
- Length: 51 hrs and 4 mins
Long ago, the world fell into twilight, when the great empires of old consumed each other in sorcerous cataclysms. In the south, the Star Towers fell, swallowed by the sea, while the black glaciers descended upon the northern holdfasts, entombing the cities of Min-Ceruth in ice and sorcery. Then from the ancient empire of Menekar, the paladins of Ama came, putting every surviving sorcerer to the sword and cleansing their taint from the land. The pulse of magic slowed, fading like the heartbeat of a dying man. But after a thousand years, it has begun to quicken again.
Epic Fantasy - with all the tropes

Very Enjoyable Saga
I have taken to looking for fantasy audiobooks which span a number of volumes and this was a delight. Some of the characterisation is a bit dodgy, only because I feel English actors are better suited to Fantasy work than Americans, but that’s a real picky point because the story is really compelling. The right amount of sword and sorcery and not at all derivative. I thoroughly recommend this bargain purchase.

The October Man
- A Rivers of London Novella
- By: Ben Aaronovitch
- Narrated by: Sam Peter Jackson
- Length: 4 hrs and 19 mins
A brand-new stand-alone novella in the Rivers of London series! Tobias Winter has been assigned to the Abteilung KDA - the Department for Complex and Unspecific Matters. Despite the intriguing department name, as Winter explains, dealing with the strange and the supernatural is 'actually 90 percent paperwork'. But this is a story about the other 10 percent of the job: the life-threatening danger part.

Really shouldn’t be considered a Rivers of London Novella. The magic is so underplayed as to be inconsequential. I thought the story was weak along with the characters. Pointless purchase.
