The whole ebook series is on Kindle Unlimited, with a $7.50 "add narration" price in the US. I've been contemplating snagging the audiobooks for a listen - I tore through the ebooks when I had KU.

I finally resubbed to Audible and grabbed the last Magicians book, The Magician's Land, which was a fitting end to the series. The whole series was very satisfying - much better prose than most fantasy, with fantasy influences almost entirely constrained to C.S. Lewis and classical mythology (okay, a dash of Harry Potter). It was in some sense a "dark, gritty reboot" of the Chronicles of Narnia for an adult audience, but also full of dry humor.

Now I'm a good ways into The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie, which is a fascinating, largely anthropological read so far (and deilogical, I suppose).
