Jingle All The Audio featuring Lauren Fortgang & Ray Porter




The final week of Jingle all the Audio, we’re featuring two of my favorite narrators. Both have earned Audiofile Magazine’s Best Voices of 2014. First up is Lauren Fortgang who narrates the Elemental Assassin Series by Jennifer Estep. Currently working as an actor and voiceover artist, Lauren has also supplied the narration for close to 100 audiobooks. For the Elemental Assassin series, she steps into the shoes of the tough-as-nails assassin, Gin Blanco, also known as the Spider. Lauren breathes such life and vitality into the audios, that I can imagine seeing the world through Gin’s eyes just by listening. She is top notch and a perfect match with the fantastic writing of Jennifer Estep. The series is an urban fantasy, but does have elements of romance mixed in. The Elemental Assassin series takes my top spot as an audiobook recommendation for new listeners who are looking for an urban fantasy with punch.

The final featured narrator happens to be my all time favorite narrator, Ray Porter who lends his voice to the Joe Ledger series by Jonathan Maberry. Also an actor and voiceover artist, Ray earned an Audie award nomination in 2014 for the Extinction Machine, the fifth book in the Joe Ledger series. Sometimes you run across a series of books that you devour and wait impatiently for the next installment. That is is exactly how I feel about the combination of Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter. Audio Platinum! I can’t imagine not listening to a Joe Ledger novel, having Ray speak to me in the sarcastic drawl that is one of the best fictional heroes in the business. Joe has come up against all kinds of fearsome adversaries. From aliens to vampires to genetically engineered zombies, Joe and the Department of Military Sciences will stop at nothing to keep the world safe. I can’t say enough about the brilliance that is Ray Porter and Joe Ledger, making these my top pick for science fiction and thriller lovers alike.
