Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited sixth installment of Laura Antoniou's Marketplace series!
When last we saw Chris Parker, he had been bought by master trainer Tetsuo Sakai and was blissfully ensconced in Japan under Tetsuo's wonderfully sadistic boot. And here we join Robin Cassidy, now contentedly serving a slave contract for a rich Chicago businessman. But the Marketplace is shaken when a new Trainer of Trainers must be anointed, and the resulting machinations and clashing loyalties threaten to tear their world apart. Everyone has a stake in the outcome, and Chris Parker is about to find out who is with him and who is against him. Richly told, interconnecting threads of Parker's previously unseen past with his complicated present, The Inheritor also weaves in the narratives of many favorite Marketplace characters, including Robin, Ken Mandarin, and Ron Avidon and features appearances by many more, including Jiro, Rachel, Michael, and Grendel.

Is it this really the end?

What made the experience of listening to The Inheritor the most enjoyable?

I love the six books of Laura Antoniou/s Marketplace Series. I started with the first one, and have listened to all six in the last three weeks. I was anxious to listen to this last one, The Inheritor and was enthralled with the new characters of The Donnelly Clan and their "staff" Sasha, the gay butler, and Robin's confident. After all six books by the same narrator, I am excited by her different voices for each character, and although, the only thing I'm disappointed with is that they all have English/British accents - even though some of the characters are distinctly from New York, USA.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Inheritor?

I loved the episodes of the Playhouse - and the lavish descriptions of the scenes and wished, that this was a real place.


What does Elizabeth Jasicki bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have difficulty reading with bad eyesight, and so I enjoyed the Audible experience of hearing different voices for each person in the story, instead of just having it in my head.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

We all believe.


Any additional comments?

I certainly hope this series continues. I just got excited about meeting these new characters and the story lines that introduces you to new character and Robin's additional training, at Kaliegh, and her improvements. I'd love to see what happens to the Trainer of Trainers and their new line of trainers, clients and spotters.

It's not just hot sex... but the sex is hot!

Laura Antoniou has crafted The Marketplace series by making us care about people living a lifestyle other writers (ELJ) would make us see as damaged and broken and deviant. She offers no tragic back story to legitimize who they are, who they long to be and, let's face it, what turns them on. She even manages to make our protagonist so likeable, my heart sank when I realized I had been had- lol. I finished this audiobook in less than a week, barely able to make it to the end of a workday so I could hop in my car and back onto the rollercoaster of torture Chris Parker's decision had me riding. You have given me many dark circles and sleepless nights, Ms Antoniou.

Just a quick note to thank Elizabeth Jasicki for being an amazing reader. Another reader of the series commented in a review of Book One that the British accents seemed out of place for a book set in NYC and, initially, I agreed, but was a convert very quickly. Her voice interpretations seem so spot on now that I couldn't imagine Chris, Robin, Rachel, Tetso and ESPECIALLY Ken, sounding like anyone else.

I find it sad it took a Kick starter campaign to get this book published and even sadder I was not aware of it until the campaign was over. But I'm on every list out there now, hoping to help the next installment come to life. Antoniou + Jasicki =perfection!
