Audiobook

Jack o’ Hearts is the top card player in the parish, and is feeling pretty sure of himself. When a he is challenged to a card game with stakes higher than high by a mysterious green man, well, Jack can’t resist. Sure, he’s never lost a tournament yet, has he?

Jack is as saucy as saucy can be, and he’s twice as lucky as that—but the game is trickier than it looks. Luckily, Jack finds he’s got an ace up his sleeve: the menacing green man’s beautiful daughter Ann. She’s got as much magic as her father (or so that enchantment crowd says), and she likes the look of Jack. A hilarious re-imagining of a traditional Newfoundland folktale, Jack and the Green Man is jam-packed with magic, romance, transformations, impossible tasks, unforgettable characters, a love ballad or two, and the ever-present threat of Jack’s head ending up on a spear.

This audio book includes a special treat—be sure to listen in to the end!

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
