Midnight Tales: Samuel Cisneros
He´s faced hordes of screaming children intent upon his destruction. He´s endured close confinement with a hostile camel. He even narrowly averted being the star attraction in a Satanic ritual sacrifice. Yet, despite handling these crises with aplomb, poor Midnight is ill-prepared for his latest, greatest adventure: a perilous foray into the affairs of the heart. He knows all there is to know of love that a farm can teach - but will it be enough to see the young goat through his darkest and most trying times? Midnight´s Tale is a 12,000-word literary story of life and love in the treacherous, apple-laden world beyond the comforts of the barn. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jane McLaughlin.

Kitty Boxford isn´t the sort of girl that gets invited to the ball of the century, but she has other plans to find herself a husband. The very serious but oh-so handsome Marquess of Ellsworth needs an assistant for his observatory, and it´s the perfect opportunity to earn the money she needs to hatch her husband-hunting plan. What isn´t in her plans is to fall in love with a Duke-in-waiting...someone as out of reach as the stars. For Colin Middleton, Lord Ellsworth, his scientific endeavors have been the distraction for his broken heart, not the bevy of ladies his marriage-minded parents have invited for a grand ball. When a gamekeeper´s daughter demands the job as his assistant, he initially discounts her as far too unqualified and far too female for the job. But the alluring Miss Boxford is more than just an excellent assistant, and there is nothing logical about the way she makes him feel. Still, there is a formula for marriage in the peerage…and marrying a gameskeeper´s daughter is not part of the equation. When Colin´s father becomes ill, the pressure to take his place in the family – with an appropriate bride and the requisite heirs – mounts. Logically, Kitty is the last woman he should want to marry. But there´s nothing logical about love...
Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, number one New York Times best-selling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love. Enter the Grishaverse.... Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Perfect for new listeners and dedicated fans, the tales in The Language of Thorns will transport you to lands both familiar and strange - to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse. 1.
