The Gods of the Underworld

The Gods of the Underworld

Synopsis

 
There’s a whisper going round that the long-lost temple of the Argian Gods of the Underworld has finally been discovered on the planet Venedel. There’s a still quieter whisper that deep inside it lies the Argian Oracle, an ancient artefact that can pinpoint the whereabouts of any soul in the universe. Benny Summerfield sets out to see if the whispers are true ­ and to see if it can tell her the whereabouts of her missing lover. She’s got nothing to lose.

Reaching Venedel, Benny finds it under siege from an over-zealous Federation, alleging human rights atrocities and starving the planet out until its people capitulate to its terms. Despite this, a team of Nishtubi mercenaries are running the blockade to supply aid for the Venedelans. But why? they have nothing to gain.

Caught between jingoistic natives, Nishtubi heavies, a plague of ancient killers and the cold, undying secrets of the Gods of the Underworld, Benny and her allies have nowhere to run ­ and are left facing nothing but trouble.
Notes

Starting this year some of our classic Bernice Summerfield books are being released on audio. Five new audiobooks narrated by Lisa Bowerman and produced by Xanna Eve Chown will be released in 2019–2020.

The first five chapters in the history of Bernice Summerfield at Big Finish are being revisited in 2019 and 2020 with the release of five new audiobook adaptations.

Read by Benny herself, Lisa Bowerman, these audiobooks will take us back to the turn of the millennium, unlocking some of the important moments of Benny’s life at the Braxiatel Collection, her past love, and the birth of her son Peter.

Xanna Eve Chown, producer of these and other Big Finish Audiobooks, tells us about uncovering these gems: “I’m really excited about recording these five Benny paperbacks because they are such fun, of course, but also because I know there are Benny fans who have wanted these to be more easily available for absolutely ages – so they will be super happy!

“The adventures explain a lot of Benny’s backstory, especially the unusual story of how her son Peter came to be born, so it’s great to get them back out there in the world where they belong!”
