(Audiobook) Their Lost Daughters
Their Lost Daughters - Joy Ellis,Richard Armitage

I think if you'd seen any of my previous updates, then you'd know I was going to rate this book highly.

 

I listened to the Audible Studios production which featured Richard Armitage as narrator. I've said it before about other audiobooks he's narrated, but he's an absolutely fantastic narrator. He has a wide variety of accents and voices and he lends the right amount of gravitas to the non-dialogue parts of the prose. I could honestly listen to him narrate the phone book.

 

As to the writing itself, it was excellent. This book read like a really good British tv crime drama. In fact, it would make a really good British tv crime drama.

 

A teenage girl is found wandering the fens, and another teenage girl is found murdered. DI Jackman, DS Evans, and their team begin to investigate, while also investigating a cold case from nearly a decade ago involving a missing little girl.

 

As Jackman, Evans, and team investigate they have to navigate through many twists and turns as the cases uncover secrets bigger than anyone could have possibly imagined.

 

The characters are compelling, well written, and likeable, and I loved the Fenlands as a setting.

 

I highly recommend this book if you like British Crime books.

The Star-Touched Queen - Roshani Chokshi

As usual, I didn't get started on An Ember in the Ashes until it was due back in 7 hours, and it wouldn't let renew the loan. So I added a new hold to it and checked this one out. I will begin this in the morning. It's only supposed to be 9 hours long so hopefully I can blow it out in a day, maybe a day and half.

An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

I like the way this audiobook is using 2 different people. A guy for Elias and a girl for Laia. And the story is engaging enough as it is. I'm afraid at this point in my life I have become a major book snob and I'm overly picky about whether I like plots or not. Love triangles, instalove, the pretty girl who doesn't know she's pretty and so many other YA tropes have become my enemies. When I find a YA novel that is actually sort of entertaining it's a relief. Nobody this far in is dumb as mud, and the main characters have pretty straight forward motivations. I appreciate this so much.
