Walter survived his first confrontation with the demon god Asebor when his cursed armor was removed, swelling his thirst for vengeance. It was supposed to be impossible to remain human for long when wearing Cerumal armor. The shadow of Asebor darkens over the realm of Zoria. Juzo, his best friend, is still missing and has been forced down a dark path. Walter and Nyset harness their newfound abilities under the tutelage of Baylan of the Silver Tower and the rogue wizard, Malek. The group is thrown into an insidious trap as Asebor's generals, The Wretched, strike at the heart of Midgaard, derailing them from searching for Juzo. Walter is sure that Juzo is alive and he can't allow himself to give up on his friend, despite the risks of travelling east where hordes of Death Spawn are rumored to be. The Midgaard Falcon army is deployed to stomp out the Death Spawn, led by a mysterious horror known as the Lord of Death. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie Kevin.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, read by Amy Finegan. The story begins on the Italian coast in 1962. A young innkeeper watches in disbelief as a beautiful American girl gets out of a boat and climbs towards his hotel. She turns out to be an actress, on the run from the shenanigans going on down the coast in Rome at the filming of Cleopatra. A few days later international star Richard Burton, much the worse for wear, appears in the village, too. Half a century later, and half a world away in Hollywood, an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the woman he last saw in his hotel 50 years before. What unfolds is a dazzling novel teeming with unforgettable characters: the Italian and his long-lost love; the heroically cynical film producer who first brought them together, now a successful legend on the Hollywood scene, and his idealistic young assistant; and the husbands, wives and lovers, superstars and victims, who have populated their world since that summer day in 1962. 1.
