The Unbound Audiobook At Last!

Today THE UNBOUND EMPIRE (book 3 of Swords & Fire) is finally out in audio!!! I’m so incredibly glad to be able to share the end of this series with my audio readers at last.

Three years ago, when THE UNBOUND EMPIRE came out, I had no idea that the audio publisher for the first 2 books wasn’t going to do the 3rd. When I did find out, I was devastated, since I know I have many readers who for a wide variety of reasons ranging from life circumstances to disabilities find it difficult or impossible to read print books. The idea that my audio readers wouldn’t get to find out how the series ends was heartbreaking to me. I couldn’t even make an audio version myself, because I didn’t own the audio rights.

But I never gave up, and neither did my agent, and eventually Blackstone (who does the Rooks & Ruin audiobooks) acquired the rights to THE UNBOUND EMPIRE and made the audiobook, bringing back the same wonderful narrator who did the first two, Saskia Maarleveld! And today, I finally get to share it with you!!!

Thank you so much to all my audio readers for your patience, and I hope it’s worth the wait!

[UPDATE: It’s been brought to my attention that the audio release may be US only! I don’t actually have any more details than the general public on this, but unfortunately it looks like UK readers may unfortunately still lack an audio version. Fingers crossed to get one someday soon!]

Here it is on Libro fm and Audible!
