I love listening to audiobooks because they allow me the chance to finish books that I may not necessarily have the time to sit and read. I love the escape of awesome audiobooks with banging story lines and phenomenal narrators. I can press play and be in a totally different world in the car during my commute or while I’m at work performing repetitive duties. My local library and my audible membership helps me to feed my need each and every month for great audiobooks. And you know, that I must share the books that squeeze into a spot on my memory bookshelf with you. I hope you enjoy them all as much as I do!

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers – and her growing feelings for an enemy.
This book is mixed into a fantasy plot that’s full of twists and turns. I suggest listening to and reading the physical book at the same time. This is an awesome story
