Next Listen Is...

Thank you everyone who voted here and on Twitter for the next read.  I will say all three of these will get listened to in due time.

This was a close run!  I was very surprised.  Very close run between Superheroes and Steampunk Vampires.  So, I think my next listen might be picked as well.

But the listen to be in my ears is....

Avalon Revisited 
By:  O.M. Grey
Arthur has made his existence as a vampire bearable for over three hundred years by immersing himself in blood and debauchery. Aboard an airship gala, he meets Avalon, an aspiring vampire slayer who sparks fire into Arthur’s shriveled heart. Together they try to solve the mystery of several horrendous murders on the dark streets of London. Cultures clash and pressures rise in this sexy Steampunk Romance.

You can listen to this one for free as well, just visit O.M. Greys site: Caught in the Cogs, and this list of chapters for your easy finding.

This one you will hear about in my podcast thoughts after all is posted for Fables of the Flying City (one more week).

But I have to say I think I'll have to line up Playing For Keeps after Avalon Revisited.

The shining metropolis of Seventh City is the birthplace of super powers. The First Wave heroes are jerks, but they have the best gifts: flight, super strength, telepathy, genius, fire. The Third Wavers are stuck with the leftovers: the ability to instantly make someone sober, the power to smell the past, the grace to carry a tray and never drop its contents, the power to produce high-powered excrement blasts, absolute control. over elevators. 

Bar owner Keepsie Branson is a Third Waver with a power that prevents anything in her possession from being stolen. Keepsie and her friends just aren't powerful enough to make a difference. at least that's what they've always been told. But when the villain Doodad slips Keepsie a mysterious metal sphere, the Third Wavers become caught in the middle of a battle between the egotistical heroes and the manipulative villains. 

As Seventh City begins to melt down, it's hard to tell the good guys from the bad, and even harder to tell who may become the true heroes.

You can listen to Playing for Keeps by Mur Lafferty as well, on Mur's site: The Murverse, and at this list which gives links to the podcast, podiobooks, and the ebook to read as well.
