In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire

My favorite of the Wayward Children to date, In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire sprang to life creating door that held me captive from its rules to the people who called it home. If you haven’t tried this fantasy novella series, I encourage you to do so. Perfect for listeners from 12 to 101.

The Au Pair by Emma Rous

The Au Pair written by Emma Rous and narrated by Elizabeth Sastre & Nicola Barber offered a suspenseful domestic-noir that held me captive.
