    Epic fantasy, gripping mystery, erotic romance… YES! Apple Boy, the first book in Isobel Starling’s latest series The Quiet Work, is a non-stop adventure and thoroughly entrancing. I’ve never read anything that wasn’t excellent by this talented author, but Ms. Starling has definitely raised the bar with this one! I’m recommending it to everybody, because it’s just that good. As fans of Isobel Starling’s audiobooks can attest, no one can do her stories justice like Gary Furlong. His performances elevate the experience, and bring everything to life in the most wonderful way. It’s like listening to a Broadway play. Mr. Furlong’s vocal style and accents are truly limitless and he continues to come up with new and inspired ways to add expression and uniqueness to every character. Who but Gary Furlong could make two elderly solicitors (who just happen to be birds) voices fit them so perfectly they actually come alive? Told as a narrative, Winter Aeling’s story unfolds gradually. What appears to be a simple smuggling scheme turns out to run far deeper, and Winter’s unwitting discovery is the start to his incredible journey. Destiny, magic, and luck play equal parts in his quest to deliver his news to the political center of this empire, and without giving too much away I can say that his stopover at the apple orchard is no fluke. The chemistry that sparks between Winter and Adam, the orchard owner’s son, evolves into a deep and true friendship. A delicious slow-burn, it’s a pleasure to watch as their unresolved sexual tension reaches astronomical proportions. Trust me when I say it’s definitely worth the wait. Isobel Starling is a master of erotic love scenes, and she hasn’t let her readers down yet. Apple Boy is an emotional story and flows from playful humor to dark and tragic events with far reaching consequences. The deeply passionate connections of lovers are just as important as the poignant moments between family members and each contribute to the overall flavor of the tale. The world Isobel Starling builds is filled with olde tyme charm and colorful characters. The happy-for-now ending is wonderful for Winter and Adam, and I'm looking forward to catching up with them later in the series. I know we’ve just scratched the surface of this incredible world, and I can’t wait to see what the next book in this marvelous new series will bring. There’s no doubt, with Isobel Starling’s imagination, the sky’s the limit!
