AudiobookSYNC listeners with a hankering for fantasy with historical twists are in for a treat with this week’s free eAudiobook downloads. The pair offers some steampunk, some alternative history, and a pair of protagonists who are clever and brave.
Airborn, by Kenneth Oppel, is an alternative to our history of aircraft development, where hot air balloons are the height of aviation splendor. There are also air pirates, fierce weather, and a strong-willed young woman out to save her dead grandfather’s reputation.
Paired with this steampunk tale is Zoe Marriott’s genre blending Shadows on the Moon. Cinderella meets feudal Japan in this fantasy world. A young woman becomes an expert shadow weaver, a skill that allows her to change her appearance and thus escape a cruel household and go in search of a way to wreak vengeance on those who have pressed her into servitude. Marriott stirs together romance, a fully formed mythology with accurate cultural detail, and plenty of action both magical and otherwise.
These eAudiobooks are high-spirited and entertaining, and both beg to be heard more than just one time. Happily, through SYNC, that’s no problem, as SYNC eAudiobooks are yours to keep forever after you download them each week.
