Vicious + Vengeful by V.E. Schwab (audiobook CD)

This was actually for my Boyfriend, after attending V.E Schwabs book talk and signing (hearing me rave about them) he was interested in her stuff! He’s not much of a reader so audiobook was the best option for him! The audiobooks are literally impossible to find digitally in the UK!?? I looked everywhere but ended up having to buy CDs.
