I've surprised myself by holding on to Kindle Unlimited for a couple months at full price, mostly because of audio books and to a lesser extent comics. I tore through the main arc of The Mongoliad, and I'm in book three of the Worldwalker series, though I've switched over to text on this one as I finally was able to pick up the thread of the most recent Foreigner audiobook. The Mongoliad audiobooks were free (and solidly narrated, great action fantasy/alt-history) and the Worldwalker audiobooks I "added narration" at $2 each. Worldwalker is written like a sloppy thriller - present day, POV all over the place, USA Today prose - but the themes and tropes are right up my alley. It's a mashup of urban fantasy and UFOs right from the start, but you can tell the author's stronger influences are probably psychological thrillers and superhero stories.

Finished, and quite enjoyed. I've like this series from the beginning, and this latest one is a good example of it. Next up, the first in Mercedes Lackey's Owl Mage series, Owlsight. I nearly abandoned this after the first 2 hours of nothing but the main character's adolescent and purile whining about how bad his life was and how he was put upon. OK, I got it after 10 minutes, and I'll give you another 20 or so for emphasis. But enough! However, I got past that and I'm now rather enjoying it. And it makes a good book for swimming with, now that we're into the meat of the story.
