Audiobook Review: Heart of Gold: JA Cipriano JB Garner

Heart of Gold


Narrated by Joe Hempel

Heart of Gold

Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My name is Frank Butcher, and when I got out of my truck to deliver the last package of the day, I never expected to get blown up by anti-magic zealots.

Yeah, you heard me right. I said magic. I didn’t know it was a thing either.

Now, an ancient artifact is the only thing keeping me alive, and to make matters worse, that artifact is what those cultists wanted.

Still, I could have made a run for it, disappeared down into South America and spent the rest of my life on a beach. I nearly did it, but I didn’t.

Why? Because the cultists have offered me a trade. Come to them or they start killing kids.

What a fun listen! I guess I’m just a sucker for stories where the “hero” is an average guy who, due to circumstances beyond his control, rises above his pay grade in life, to do awesome things.

Frank Butcher, works for a package delivery service and his last stop of the day is a clinic he frequents on his route. His world is turned upside down after an attack on the clinic by a group of zealots.

Dr. Gabriella Perez saves Frank’s life by throwing him to the ground just as a fireball sails past them. When Gabriella tells Frank to scram, he does the exact opposite. A surprise even to Frank and when he finds out that the life of Gabriella’s kid is in danger, Frank, yes he’s sweet on the doctor, he’s all in.

This audiobook has everything I enjoy in SciFi/Horror, it’s action packed, filled with humorous one-liners, gory, violent and has monsters and zombies! Come on what more could you ask for?

Joe Hempel is the narrator of this fantastic little audiobook which clocks in at just over five hours. He is a perfect fit for this type of book. Seriously, the writers couldn’t have done any better than choosing this reader. He’s a true storyteller and lifts what is already a good book to a great one.

This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!
