Thrawn: Treason (Star Wars)
Author: Timothy Zahn
Read By: Marc Thompson

“If I were to serve the Empire, you would command my allegiance.” Such was the promise Grand Admiral Thrawn made to Emperor Palpatine at their first meeting.

As Thrawn works to secure his place in the Imperial hierarchy, his former protégé returns with a dire warning about Thrawn’s homeworld. Thrawn’s mastery of strategy must guide him through an impossible choice: even if the right choice means committing treason. It’s non-stop action in this latest Star Wars audio, read by the great Marc Thompson.

DEV1AT3 (Deviate)
Author: Jay Kristoff
Read By: Erin Spencer

In the second installment of the LIFEL1K3 trilogy by bestselling author Jay Kristoff, two former best friends suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of the same quest. Eve is torn between the memories of the girl she was, and the synthetic she’s discovered herself to be. Meanwhile, Eve’s best friend, Lemon, is coming to terms with a power that she has long denied–and that others want to harness as a weapon. All is not what it seems when enemies and friends, heroes and villains wear interchangeable faces.

Recursion

From the bestselling author of Dark Matter comes a relentless audio thriller about time, identity, and memory. Memory makes reality: that’s what New York City cop Barry Sutton is learning as he investigates the devastating phenomenon the media has dubbed False Memory Syndrome—an affliction that drives its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived. As Barry searches for the truth, he comes face-to-face with an opponent more terrifying than any disease—a force that attacks not just our minds but the very fabric of the past. As its effects begin to unmake the world as we know it, only he and the neuroscientist Helena Smith, working together, will stand a chance at defeating it.

Salvation Day

A lethal virus is awoken on an abandoned spaceship in this incredibly fast-paced, claustrophobic thriller read by favorite narrators Vikas Adam, Kimberly Farr, and Kyle Garcia. House of Wisdom, a massive exploration vessel, had been abandoned by the government of Earth a decade earlier, when a deadly virus broke out and killed everyone on board in a matter of hours. But now it could belong to Zahra and her people if they were bold enough to take it. What Zahra and her crew could not know was what waited for them on the ship—a terrifying secret buried by the government.

Eve of Man

On the first day, no one really noticed. All those babies wrapped in blue blankets–not a pink one in sight. On the third day, people were scared. Not just entire hospitals, not only entire countries, but the entire world. Boys. Only boys. Until Eve. The only girl born in fifty years. The savior of mankind. Kept protected, under a glass dome of safety until she is ready to renew the human race. But when the time comes to find a suitor, Eve and Bram–a young man whose job is to prepare Eve for this moment–begin to question the plan they’ve known all along. Eve doesn’t only want safety, she wants freedom.
