The July Audiobook of the Month is a page turner in the classic sense. Historical fiction, a monumental clash of titans and titanic egos, is the storyline of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall ($5.95), which vividly details the trials, travails and ultimately triumph of Henry VIII’s England:

In the ruthless arena of King Henry VIII’s court, only one man dares to gamble his life to win the king’s favor and ascend to the heights of political power. England in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster. If the king dies without a male heir, the country could be destroyed by civil war. Henry VIII wants to annul his marriage of 20 years, and marry Anne Boleyn. The pope and most of Europe opposes him. The quest for the king’s freedom destroys his adviser, the brilliant Cardinal Wolsey, and leaves a power vacuum. Into this impasse steps Thomas Cromwell. Cromwell is a wholly original man, a charmer and a bully, both idealist and opportunist, astute in reading people and a demon of energy: he is also a consummate politician, hardened by his personal losses, implacable in his ambition. But Henry is volatile: one day tender, one day murderous. Cromwell helps him break the opposition, but what will be the price of his triumph?

Or, get Wolf Hall in iBooks ($5.95) format.

If you are invested in Amazon’s universe, get Wolf Hall in paperback ($9.05, Prime) and/or Kindle ($7.99) formats.
