That is correct - at this time, "Narcissus In Chains" by Laurell K Hamilton is not available as a WMA audiobook through our vendor, OverDrive/Library2go, so at this time we cannot purchase it. I double checked OverDrive to see if we can even buy a "Narcissus in Chains" WMA format from them and a search through their catalog shows they don't have it for us to purchase. All they have available in that title is Kindle format and Adobe PDF format.
(I know that seems strange, since the other books in the series are available, but the reasons for it not being available are many - the publisher may not make it available to libraries, for example. Unfortunately, some publishers restrict or do not make available their ebook content).
Feel free to submit a request for it via our Purchase Suggestion form. It can't hurt to do so, as it will put pressure on our vendor to talk with publishers, such as Brilliance Audio, to provide all books in all formats for libraries.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. We (and the rest of the library world) continue to talk with our vendors and publishers about making all titles available in all formats as we believe it's better for everyone when that happens.
Thanks for contacting us,
