The Innocent by Taylor Stevens. Read by Hillary Huber. 10 discs.
12+ hours. “Blade-wielding heroine Vanessa Michael Munroe…is utterly driven and a little deranged, a fearsome force for both evil and good.”
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. Read by Khristine Hvam. 10 discs. 12+ hours.
“The author crafts a fierce heroine with bright-blue hair, tattoos, martial skills, a growing attachment to a preternaturally hunky but not entirely sane warrior and, in episodes to come, an army of killer angels to confront. Rarely—perhaps not since the author's own Faeries of Dreamdark: Blackbringer (2007)—does a series kick off so deliciously.”
