CRUEL BEAUTY Cruel BeautyBy Rosamund Hodge
Read by Elizabeth Knowelden
Published by Harper Audio
(Available EXCEPT UK & British Commonwealth)

Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom — all because of a reckless bargain her father struck. And since birth, she has been training to kill him. Betrayed by her family yet bound to obey, Nyx rails against her fate. Still, on her 17th birthday, she abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex.
"Knowelden's subtle inflections add to the mystery and mood as Nyx explores her new home and builds her plans even as she grapples with her growing feelings toward the Gentle Lord and her ambivalence toward her mission."

OEDIPUS THE KING Oedipus the KingBy Sophocles
Read by Michael Sheen and a Full Cast
Published by Naxos AudioBooks
In the hands of Sophocles, the master dramatist, the anguished tale of a man fated to kill his father and marry his mother retains its power to shock and move beyond any Freudian reference.
"Aristotle admired Oedipus Tyrannos as the pinnacle of tragic art. Indeed, aside from its fine poetry and Freudian undertones, it is a taut, suspenseful detective story."
