C.L. Polk’s WITCHMARK (Recorded Books) is a fantasy debut that combines intrigue, magic, betrayal, and romance in an original world with a historical setting. Cabals of noble families use their unique magical gifts to control the fates of nations, while one young man seeks only to live a life of his own. Dr. Miles Singer is a veteran from the deadly world war, and he’s a magical healer hiding away. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man, but he couldn’t leave his past behind. Samuel Roukin gives listeners a dramatic British-accented narration.
