It's an optional liaison. Omitting it just makes one's speech sound less formal. So I agree that it's kind of weird that they would omit it in an audiobook, but it's not a mistake per say.Source(s): I'm French

There should ordinarily be. Maybe the reader paused ... in which case the liaison may have fallen between the cracks.
I don't think the liaison between the two 'i' sounds would be omitted, even informally, unless there were a pause between them.

Because there should be a comma between these two words. However, some people will make the liaison anyway.
