Spotify-Hörbuch #11 | Cozy English Fantasy

Liebe Leser,
ich hatte schon immer gerne Hörbücher gehört und führe die Reihe seit einer Weile nun. Aber jetzt wo meine Tochter auf der Welt ist, bin ich richtig zum Hörbuch-Junkie geworden! Und das heißt auch, dass ich hin und wieder mal eine richtige Abwechslung brauche. So kam ich auf englische Hörbücher und bei Spotify muss man ganz schön kramen und die richtigen zu finden. Zu aller erst habe ich für euch eine Liste zusammengestellt von englischen Fantasyromanen, die ich als gemütlich bezeichnen würde. Die letzten beiden Titel sind phantastische Geschichten, die für wirklich jeden sind.

Bereits in dieser Serie erschienen:

The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Kune

Dauer: 12 Stunden und 12 Minuten | Einzelband, aber von dem Autoren gibt es noch viel mehr!

Linus Baker is a by-the-book case worker in the Department in Charge of Magical Youth. He’s tasked with determining whether six dangerous magical children are likely to bring about the end of the world.

Arthur Parnassus is the master of the orphanage. He would do anything to keep the children safe, even if it means the world will burn. And his secrets will come to light.

Bookshops and Bonedust by Travis Baldree, gesprochen vom Autoren

Dauer: 8 Stunden und 1 Minuten | Vorgeschichten zu Legends & Lattes (nicht auf Spotify)

Viv’s career with the notorious mercenary company Rackam’s Ravens isn’t going as planned.
Wounded during the hunt for a powerful necromancer, she’s packed off against her will to recuperate in the sleepy beach town of Murk—so far from the action that she worries she’ll never be able to return to it.
What’s a thwarted soldier of fortune to do?
Spending her hours at a beleaguered bookshop in the company of its foul-mouthed proprietor is the last thing Viv would have predicted, but it may be both exactly what she needs and the seed of changes she couldn’t possibly imagine.
Still, adventure isn’t all that far away. A suspicious traveler in gray, a gnome with a chip on her shoulder, a summer fling, and an improbable number of skeletons prove Murk to be more eventful than Viv could have ever expected.

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman, gesprochen von Kristin Atherton

Dauer: 12 Stunden und 2 Minuten | Band 1 von 8 | Super Reihe und jeder Band auf Spotify

Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along with her enigmatic assistant Kai, she’s posted to an alternative London. Their mission – to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it’s already been stolen. London’s underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book.

Adding to the jeopardy, this world is chaos-infested – the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic. Irene’s new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own.

Soon, she’s up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues and secret societies. Yet failure is not an option – the nature of reality itself is at stake.

Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Kawaguchi, gesprochen von Arina Li

Dauer: 16 Stunden und 43 Minuten | Band 1 von 5 (letzter Teil erscheint im September 2024) – keine typische Fantasy!

If you could go back, who would you want to meet?

In a small back alley of Tokyo, there is a café that has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than 100 years. Local legend says that this shop offers something else besides coffee – the chance to travel back in time.

Over the course of one summer, four customers visit the café in the hopes of making that journey. But time travel isn’t so simple, and there are rules that must be followed. Most important, the trip can last only as long as it takes for the coffee to get cold.

Heartwarming, wistful, mysterious, and delightfully quirky, Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s internationally best-selling novel explores the age-old question: What would you change if you could travel back in time?

The Cat who saved books by Natsukawa, gesprochen von Kevin Shen

Dauer: 5 Stunden und 7 Minuten | ähnliche Atmosphäre, wie die Serie von Kawaguchi

Bookish high school student Rintaro Natsuki is about to close the secondhand bookstore he inherited from his beloved bookworm grandfather. Then, a talking cat appears with an unusual request. The feline asks for — or rather, demands — the teenager’s help in saving books with him. The world is full of lonely books left unread and unloved, and the cat and Rintaro must liberate them from their neglectful owners.

Their mission sends this odd couple on an amazing journey, where they enter different mazes to set books free. Through their travels, the cat and Rintaro meet a man who leaves his books to perish on a bookshelf, an unwitting book torturer who cuts the pages of books into snippets to help people speed read, and a publishing drone who only wants to create best sellers. Their adventures culminate in one final, unforgettable challenge — the last maze that awaits leads Rintaro down a realm only the bravest dare enter….

An enthralling tale of books, first love, fantasy, and an unusual friendship with a talking cat, The Cat Who Saved Books is a story for those for whom books are so much more than words on paper.

Viel Spaß beim Hören!
