Here are the nominees:
- Damoren by Seth Skorkowsky; Narrated by R.C. Bray from Audible, Inc.
“Monsters, demons and holy weapons – what a ride. I can’t wait for more in the series and hopefully, RC Bray will be the narrator – I can’t imagine anyone else doing the books.” ~ Dee’s Book Blog
- The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey; Narrated by Finty Williams from Hachette Audio
“A rare book where the hype I’d heard prior almost lives up to the listening experience. But my one word of advice – take the blurb and just ignore you – because you are in for so many twists and turns. Flinty Williams was a solid narrator and I’ll be checking out more by her in the future.”
- Pleasure of a Dark Prince by Kresley Cole; Narrated by Robert Petkoff from Simon & Schuster
“When it comes to audiobook listening, there are a few narrators that I will pick up book description unseen because I have had such a good experience with them previously. Robert Pekhoff is one of them – his narration has the ability to make my knees go weak in places (which is potentially bad when you are listening while on the treadmill). He also has the ability to make all the characters sound unique in their own way, which is impressive when you consider that this is book 9 in a series and each book has a variety of different characters and many of them appear in other books. I have no idea how he manages to keep them all straight.”
- A Second Chance by Jodi Taylor; Narrated by Zara Ramm from Audible, Inc.
“Zara Ramm was a new to me narrator, but I can safely save (as with several other narrators nominated in the paranormal category), it won’t be my last time listening to her. In fact, I’ve already purchased the first book in this series, as well as several freebies that are available (what can I say, I only have a slight problem with freebies)…i think one of the good things about how well her narration tied into the novel was that it was told from a female POV, so having one who was well modulated and articulate (as Max was, since she is a historian and a department leader) worked well. There were times during the narration I was laughing so hard at the antics of Max and her crew (and no, not just the cheese rolling), that I thought I was going to have to pull the car over so as to avoid an accident.”
- Suffer the Children by Craig Dilouie; Narrated by R.C. Bray from Tantor Media
“What if a pint of blood would only guarantee another hour of time with your little one? How far would you go? If I was a parent I can only imagine that I would be happy to do anything for my child survival, would you? DiLouie masterfully crafts a twisted take on the typical vampire story. Making the listener ask themselves those very questions.” ~ Audiobook Reviewer
- Yesterday’s Gone, Season One by Sean Platt, David Wright; Narrated by R.C. Bray, Chris Patton, Brian Holsopple, Ray Chase, Maxwell Glick, Tamara Marston from Podium Publishing
“What’s scary about this story is how it all happens, in the night, suddenly, and without anything or anyone to hang on to. So there aren’t any big explosions in this apocalyptic book, but like books that are apocalyptic in nature the survivors of this weird evening have to figure out what is going on and why they are left over.” ~ Audiobook Reviewer
