      Oh and Miriam this is a great one to start with! AND the sequel is out in September so not long to wait if you adore it…

  2. AO Bibliophile

    it was beyond my control that “Of Poseidon” was only available in the US and Canada. however, i’m still grateful that i was able to download “The Tempest.”

    thank you very much!

      And this week’s titles are available worldwide!

    SYNC’s 2013 season is off to a rousing start.

    In OF POSEIDON listeners will meet a prince and a mermaid! Galena, a Syrena prince is pleased to encounter Emma who can communicate with fish. She might be able to help save his kingdom. Along with a “cliffhanger” conclusion listeners will be treated to humor and spectacular description. Narrator Gibel strikes just the right note with the intriguing and otherworldly cast.

    Seaside adventures don’t end there, next we encounter Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST. Prospero uses his supernatural power to control his enemies and restore his daughter Miranda’s position. The Full Cast audio is ideal for a rich range of characters as well as the natural sound and fury!
