Shadow of the Crimson Queen

by Eric Radulski
Narrated by Eric Radulski
Once upon a time, Britney and Brad's significant others (Shawn and Eddie, respectively) tried to take over AudioShelf. Their introduction to the episode went over as well as a 16 car pile up. Shadow of the Crimson Queen, a short story about the curse of a man's desire, is the focal point of this episode; however, we dare you to try to think of anything else but Shawn and Eddie's adorable little attempt at an AudioShelf Coup d'├ętat.

Greatshadow: The Dragon Apocalypse, Book 1

by James Maxey
Narrated by Jake Urry
The Audiobookworm Review
Grief can make us do many things. For starters, it can make us join a group of savagely dedicated men to hunt down a legendary dragon. Join Britney and Brad as they discuss how a narrator can be an audiobook's "saving grace." Jake Urry gives a performance of a lifetime in Greatshadow, but does the fantasy story deserve such an amazing narrator? Find out on today's episode of AudioShelf.

Episode Fifty-Two


by Kimberly Bettes
Narrated by Rick Gregory
When you think of horror novels, what is scary to you? Can you spot writing differences between female and male horror authors? Why do grown adults think it's okay to drink breast milk? These are the questions Brad and Britney answer in this review of the audiobook "Exodus" by Kimberly A. Bettes, narrated by Rick Gregory. Fair warning: graphic language was used in the recording of this episode. There are lots of discussions about the female genitalia that unfortunately a straight girl and a gay guy had to endure throughout this recording. If you are thirsty at any point, please walk to your nearest faucet and drink water, not breast milk. ALSO: Every time we say the word "titty," you have to drink (and make sure it's a strong drink. You're gonna need it for this episode)

Episode Fifty-One

The Shadow Queen

by C.J. Redwine
Narrated by Khristine Hvam
Once upon a time there was a princess named Snow White. She was the lamest of them all--with hair as black as night, lips as red as blood, and skin as white as snow (hence the name). Once upon another time, there was another princess with similar physical characteristics named Lorelei Diederich and she was the most badass of them all. Join Britney and Brad as they share their thoughts on CJ Redwine's wickedly original adaption that shows how princesses can kick butt, take names, and still fall in love with the best of them. Sit back, put some headphones on, and enjoy our review of The Shadow Queen.

To Die For

by Alice Clark-Platts
Narrated by Rachel Bavidge
Have you heard of the Massachusetts court case where a teen girl is charged with manslaughter because she texted her boyfriend encouragements to kill himself? If you haven't, that's okay, because Alice Clark-Platts has and she has written an "original" story that pulls right from those same headlines! Join Britney and Brad as they constructively critique Platts' short story. You can't miss this's TO DIE FOR.

This Is Where It Ends

by Marieke Nijkamp
Narrated by Nick Podehl, Whitney Dykhouse, Kate Rudd, Lauren Ezzo, Amy McFadden, Brittany Pressley, and Scott Merriman
Two words: Mass Shooting. These events are difficult for many to think about. Shootings are scary, horrifying, and downright tragic and they impact everyone in some way, shape, or form. Join Britney and Brad as they discuss Marieke Nijkamp's This is Where It Ends, a novel that mentally and emotionally transports you into a situation where a gunmen sets loose in a high school auditorium. This audiobook does more than provoke fear. It also challenges it's listeners to face what victims and survivors of mass shootings might possibly experience during such a chaotic time. Will this audiobook be an effective PSA for gun violence within the school setting or will it fail at comparison when you measure the similarities and differences between the audiobook and actual real mass shootings that most likely affected you and us.
