Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn Series Book #7
Death in a White Tie - Benedict Cumberbatch,Ngaio Marsh

Another good book by Marsh...this one is set during the London season and starts out with Detective Alleyn on the hunt for a blackmailer and winds up looking for a murderer too. By the end, he professes his love to Angela Troy again with an ultimatum that if she doesn't love him back, then he can't bear to see her ever again. I flipped back and forth between reading and listening to the audio. The audio narration had me cracking up! Some of the voices they used for the women especially Lady Alleyn's was hilarious but it was a very accurate representation of what I pictured Lady Alleyn to sound like. : )

The Last Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney- Book #10
The Last Apprentice: Lure of the Dead (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #10) - Joseph Delaney,Christopher Evan Welch

The Last Apprentice series is like my go-to audiobook series when I'm not sure what else I want to listen to next but I know the story will be good and the narrator will be good because it's always consistent. It also never has huge cliffhangers so I know I won't feel pressured to listen to the next book like "right now." I've been slowly making my way through the series for a long time now and I like it that way. 

 

In book 10, Tom is still trying to prepare to defeat the Fiend. They have his head, which has to be separate from his body or the Fiend can come back so Grimalkin has been trying to keep the head away from enemy hands until Tom can locate the third blade that he needs to defeat the Fiend once and for all. 

 

This wasn't one of my favorite books of the series just because it was more of a filler story I thought and I'm to the point where if they don't hurry up and kill the damn Fiend I'm going to find a way to do it myself.
