The Last Greek by Christian Cameron

The Last Greek

Narrated by John Telfer and written by Christian Cameron, The Last Greek is the 2nd book in the new Commanders series.

“211BCE. The Roman invasion from the western seas is imminent, and from the south the Spartans are burning and pillaging their way north.

Battle-hardened Philopoemen believes the Achean League is facing annihilation if it does not arm. But without a formal army or cavalry, they don’t stand a chance. Convincing his friend and healer Alexanor that the threat is real, together they begin to build a massive cavalry guard from the ground up – one that will fight on all fronts.

It is the last roll of the dice for the Achean League. But Alexanor knows Philopoemen is one of the greatest warriors Greece has ever known – the New Achilles. The Last Greek.

The Lydmouth Series by Andrew Taylor

Through out November and December we were lucky enough to work with the wonderful Philip Franks on Andrew Taylor’s chilling Lydmouth Series.

The series includes An Air That Kills, The Mortal Sickness, The Lover Of The Grave, The Suffocating Night, Where Roses Fade, Deaths Own Door, and Naked The The Hangman.

Set in the 1950’s, we meet Jill Francis, the newly arrived London journalist and inspector Richard Thornhill, along with an array of other characters making up the mysterious town of Lydmouth.

Every book has a shocking twist and is beautifully voiced, definitely a series to listen out for in 2020.

The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide by Jen Gale

Easy, do-able, down to earth ideas and suggestions for everyone to help save the planet.

One of our wonderful producers, Deryn Edwards worked with writer Jen Gale on her book The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide.

Which tells you “everything you need to know to make small changes that make a big difference”

“If you want to save the planet, but your to-do list is already pretty long and remembering your re-usable coffee cup feels like a Herculean task, then this is the book for you. Covering every aspect of our lives from the stuff we buy and the food we eat, to how we travel, work, and celebrate. This book provides stacks of practical, down to earth ideas to slot into your daily life, alongside a gentle kick up the butt to put your newfound knowledge into action.

Practical tips include unsubscribing from all the tempting emails that drop into your inbox with details of the newest clothing range or the latest sale, and keeping a mug next to your kettle to work out how much water you actually need to boil each time, as over filling kettles costs British households £68 million on energy bills each year.

Find out how to fit “sustainable living” into your life, in a way that works for you. Change your impact without radically changing your life and figure out the small steps you can make that will add up to make a big difference (halo not included).”

The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide is available to purchase on the 9th of January 2020
