In the city of Edgehaven, New York lives a man named Lucas Winslow. He´s the night-time security guard at a blood bank. Nothing really exciting happens in his life; he goes to class by day and guards the blood by night. He seems to have a fairly easy job as no one ever steals from a blood bank. At least that was Lucas´ assumption when he took the job. But then, one night, there is a break-in at the blood bank. Lucas investigates and finds himself face to face with the beautiful, ivory skinned Blair McMann. She seems ordinary at first glance but Lucas soon learns that she is far from normal. In fact, Blair is a vampire. Lucas cannot believe what he finds out about this gorgeous creature. After getting over the shock of the appearance of a supernatural being at his job, Lucas learns that Blair is on the run. There is another vampire is coming after her. He does not know why but he feels that it is his duty to protect this vampire from the man who is out to get her. Lucas sets off on a mission to help Blair escape her pursuer. His only intention was to help her get away. But the unexpected happened; he fell in love with Blair and now they have to deal with the problems from her past. Will Lucas and Blair get away from the vampire hunting her? Or will their love be lost before it even begins? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alec Shea.

Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Deephaven, an entire family has been killed - husband, wife, two daughters, dogs. There’s something about the scene that pokes at Lucas’s cop instincts - it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he’s seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn’t seem to fit. Until it does. And where it leads Lucas will take him into the darkest nightmare of his life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Ferrone.

For fans of Colson Whitehead, James McBride, Yaa Gyasi, and Lawrence Hill, Up from Freedom is a powerful and emotional novel about the dangers that arise when we stay silent in the face of prejudice or are complicit in its development. As a young man, Virgil Moody vowed he would never be like his father, he would never own slaves. When he moves from his father´s plantation in Savannah to New Orleans, he takes with him Annie, a tiny woman with sharp eyes and a sharper tongue, who he is sure would not survive life on the plantation. She´ll be much safer with him, away from his father´s cruelty. And when he discovers Annie´s pregnancy, already a few months along, he is all the more certain that he made the right decision. As the years pass, the divide between Moody´s assumptions and Annie´s reality widens ever further. Moody even comes to think of Annie as his wife and Lucas as their son. Of course, they are not. As Annie reminds him, in moments of anger, she and Moody will never be equal. She and her son are enslaved. When their ´´family´´ breaks apart in the most brutal and tragic way, and Lucas flees the only life he´s ever known, Moody must ask himself whether he has become the man he never wanted to be - but is he willing to hear the answer? Stretching from the war-torn banks of the Rio Brazos in Texas to the muddy waters of Freedom, Indiana, Moody travels through a country on the brink of civil war, relentlessly searching for Lucas and slowly reconciling his past sins with his hopes for the future. When he meets Tamsey, a former slave, and her family trying to escape the reach of the Fugitive Slave Act, Moody sees an opportunity for redemption. But the world is on the cusp of momentous change, and though some things may be forgotten, nothing is ever really forgiven. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Godfrey.
