Publisher's Summary

Contains some scenes of violence that younger listeners may find upsetting. Recommended for listeners aged 16+

This Original multicast drama piece blends history with fiction to tell the story of Jonah and his rise to fame through war, disease, ruin and riches.

London, 1337. England is at war, and the King is in financial straits, meaning that Jonah's hard-earned business and fortune hang in the balance. A far cry from his humble beginnings as a draper's apprentice, Jonah is now one of the influential merchants in England, and he manages to secure the hand of the daughter of one of the most powerful and dangerous nobles in the country.

As Jonah's wealth and prominence grow, so do his enemies and the threats they bring - and even Jonah's close relationship with the King doesn't guarantee security. The King is at war, and he wants Jonah there beside him.

Told in three parts, hear Medieval London come to life in this historical epic, Audible Original's most ambitious production to date. Narrated by Miriam Margolyes, OBE (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Romeo + Juliet, Mulan) and starring Douglas Booth (Riot Club, Loving Vincent, Shelley) as Jonah and Samuel West (BAFTA nominated; Mr Selfridge, Howards End) as Willcox.

Also featuring: Josephine Arden, Timothy Bentinck, John Banks, Clare Buckfield, Elliot Chapman, Oliver Coopersmith, Raymond Coulthard, Gareth David-Lloyd, Raj Ghatak, Joe Jameson, James Joyce, Barry McCarthy, Olly McCauley, Tony Millan, George Naylor, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Steven Pacey, Nicholas Pegg, David Schofield, Jane Slavin, Dan Starkey, Jonty Stephens, Julie Teal, Alexander Vlahos, Niky Wardley, Lizzie Waterworth-Santo, Samuel West, Finty Williams.

Masterpiece!

Waiting for part 2 was so worth it! As the first part "Apprentice - Scarlet City" this second one is excellent and impeccably done.
Too bad we have to wait until April for the third part!
I hope Audible increases the amount of dramatic audio books with the quality of Scarlet City by Rebecca Gable.

Just right

Everything about this I loved! The narration is incredible. The soft music and sound effects in background are done well as they don’t take away form the story they enhance it as they are supposed to do. All the characters are believable and well rounded. On to the next is the series.

Entertaining

Loved it. I wish that they would make this as a tv /netflix series with Douglas Booth as Jonah.
