New Sebastian St. Cyr Audio Book: WHEN GODS DIE

Recorded Books has just released the audio version of the second book in the Sebastian St. Cyr series, WHEN GODS DIE. Once again the narrator is Davina Porter.

I know that Recorded Books has gone back and bought the rights to the earlier books they didn't produce, so they will all be available eventually. But I don't have a clue what their production schedule is. In fact, the first notice I get that one is in the works is when the cover shows up in my email inbox, usually just days before the release.

But I must say, I do like this cover.

c- i agree - very nice cover and i think it has to due with the muted colors. gives it a mystical feel. i really need to go back to book 1 and re-read from there - i have not done that in long. rainy weekend ahead to be the time! best, ali

It's a very attractive cover. I Googled Davina Porter and I see that she is British born and known for having a nice voice, so these audio versions sound as if would be very good. I liked this book very much, particularly with the mentions of Brighton Pavilion. I lived in Eastbourne as a child and my Dad took me to visit it when I was small. My Dad still laughs about me saying 'Daddy, I don't think this place is in very good taste'!

Charles Gramlich said...

Oh cool. Good to see this.

cs harris said...

Lynne, yes, I like it so much better than the book cover of this one.

Ali, I keep telling myself I need to go back and read them all! I haven't read any of them since they were galleys.

Susan, I must admit I would have preferred a male English reader, but a lot of people love Porter. And your small self was very wise. I visited the pavilion eons ago when I was 20, and remember being stunned.

Charles, thanks.

Suzanne said...

I finished Who Buries The Dead yesterday. WOW!!! It was fantastic! I guessed who was behind the attempts on Sebastian's life, but I didn't even come close to guessing who did the murder's. It was really well done. Congratulations!

Lynne said...

Add me to the "just finished" list. I told Suzanne that Knightly came out of left field! Great story, Candy...how will I wait until next year?

Susan J. said...

Really irritating, the audio books don't seem to be available over here. Also, the hardback version of 'Who Buries The Dead' is even more expensive than last year, £17.99! It seems such a jump from just under £5.00 for the paperback, particularly if you pre-order. Maybe I'll find somebody in the States selling it cheaper, there seem to be some US sellers on Abe Books whose postage to the UK seems reasonable.

cs harris said...

Suzanne, oh, thank you so much!

Lynne, I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Susan, what a horrid price. I know Poisoned Pen and Garden District here in New Orleans both ship autographed copies, but I don't know how much they charge.

Susan J. said...

I found a bookseller in the UK selling it for £13.22 including postage, so hopefully it's on it's way! I'm really pleased, soon I'll be up with everyone else on the blog. I really wanted to read this one, it sounds so good, with Jane Austen in it etc and Suzanne saying how difficult it was to guess the murderer.

Susan J. said...

Dash it, rogue apostrophe in the second its! Why do I keep doing that?

Lynne said...

Susan - Rogue apostrophe's are the bane of our lives. I used to hate trying to determine where they go and when...and English class was a long time ago. Never mind - I just wanted to add that you will love Who Buries the Dead. Suzanne and I discussed as we went along and I was totally amazed at who the "bad guy" turned out to be. (Well done, Candy!) And having The Austen's figure in the story was great fun. You'll love it! And your price is not that much more than US - the dollar to the pound is just about 1.50 to 1. Books, particularly hardbound, are getting outrageously expensive everywhere. Enjoy the book - it was great!

Susan J. said...

Lynne: Thanks for being kind about my apostrophe error! I went to what they used to call a 'bog standard Secondary Modern' school in the 1960's and did not have a very good education. I've made up for it by studying with The Open University and getting a degree when I was aged forty but I think my knowledge of the basics of grammar is a still bit shaky! We need that grounding in childhood really.
I'm really looking forward to reading 'Who Buries The Dead'.

Susan J. said...

I mean still a bit, not 'a still bit'! That was a typo that time! Ugh!

Lynne said...

Susan - to coin a favorite phrase of mine - "Oh, Poo!" Your grammar is just fine. Punctuation marks are a whole different thing...challenging at any age. And it's not likely it was your education. Most of us just don't pay attention to stuff like that when we're kids. I sure didn't - I had to re-learn a lot of it in college English classes. Enjoy your book!!

Susan J. said...

Lynne: I beg to differ, it seems to me that we do not all have a level playing field when it comes to education. The rich have all the advantage. Even in America, the so called 'land of the free', do you really think there is equality in educational opportunities, for people born in into a poor family? I think not. It makes me angry to think of the wasted opportunities all over the world for people who are not of a privilaged class.

Lynne said...

Susan - I wouldn't argue with you for the world. In the US we have a pretty good system but you're right - for the poor it is different, although our educational system in poorer areas has greatly improved in recent years. You and I went to grade school during the same years ad things were different then. That said, I repeat: Your grammar is excellent and you are very articulate in your writing. What is happening in the rest of the world is something that only changes with time...and yes, it makes me madder than hell...but that has nothing to do with your punctuation. Keep writing - and I'll keep reading:)!

Lynne said...

"and things were different"...see, I can make those typos, too.

cs harris said...

Susan, our public school system depends on where you live. When I moved to New Orleans as a newly divorced single parent, I went to enroll my girls in school. There were metal detectors at the doors; the woman next to me at the counter was screaming that the PE teacher seduced her daughter; a secretary announced, "Everyone here to drop out, please form a line to your right." We left, and I bit the bullet and enrolled the younger one in private school I really could not afford.

cs harris said...

Oh, and I make typos ALL THE TIME. It drives me nuts.

Since my eyes are not good for reading for a long time, I'm dependent on audiobooks to a large extent. So I was thrilled to see that your publisher is going back to fill in the earlier St. Cyr volumes. By the way, it did not show up on the audible site as a book I might be interested in even though I own all of your other audiobooks. I do a regular search for authors I like to see what has come out, and I also go to web sites like yours to see if you might have a book coming out. At this point, I buy books I like as ebooks and hope that they'll be made into audiobooks. I occasionally splurge on a hardback, but that's hard to justify when I already own an ebook and an audiobook. If I get a windfall, I will definitely look for your books in hardbacks, though; they are keepers.

And my two cents worth; grammar, like spelling, has a lot to do with how your brain works. I've always been able to spell because once I see a word, it's mine for life. With punctuation, it's a bit harder, but you just have to think about what you are trying to say. But no matter how good your grammar or spelling is, you're going to make mistakes, and people who care more about that than what you are saying are missing the point of the dialogue.

hope said...

I forgot to add a comment on Davina Porter. She is an amazing reader, and she's good at many voices and accents. I've listened to many books she's read, and I only occasionally cringe at a bad accent (foreign) or a mispronounced word. That said, she does have some pretty distinct idiosyncrasies, so I prefer not to listen to her too many times in a row. And I really have to agree with you that a male reader (one who actually can do women's voices) would be a better choice for a series which has a hero as the main character. I'd love to hear Sebastian's voice read by a man. In a side note, Laura Kinsale was able to keep or get back the rights to the audible versions of her books, and she chose her own reader, a very skilled actor named Nicholas Boulton who is perfect for her books; it adds a lot to her books. So if it makes any difference, let your publishers know that you have a least one serious vote for a male reader for the St. Cyr series.
