Publisher's Summary

The entire world is on the brink of finding out nightmares are real.

An army of demons known as the Noctis is growing in strength. They control all manner of foul beasts and if not stopped soon, cities will burn, lives will end, and hope will be lost.

The only thing standing in the way are the Journeymen; humans and supernatural beings united against the darkness.

There is one known amongst men and the supernatural alike that you don't mess with. Unless it's on his terms.

His name is Gage Crosse and he's the best damn Journeyman around.

These are his adventures.

    "I love the Journeymen!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely to anyone who likes an action-packed novel with a bit of romance thrown in.


    What about Wen Ross’s performance did you like?

    Wen Ross has such range of voices that you forget only one person is narrating. His southern accent has always been my favorite, it's to die for.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the first book I have read by Golden Czermak and I have to say it was really good. I will read anything Paranormal and I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. I loved the action in this book which is a bit different from the romance novels I read, but the fight scenes were so well-written I was completely drawn into the story. I can't wait to see what happens next in the series.

    "Homeward Bound"

    Loved this book! I laughed, got chills and even got teary. A team of 3 Journeymen fighting paranormal creatures of the night. Gage, Addy and Joey have a great friendship. Gage and Addy have hot sexual chemistry and a great love. Wen Ross brings this story together so well with all of his voices! The ending was a surprise and I am ready for the next book!

    I enjoyed reading Homeward Bound by Golden Czermak. It was a good read about a time that many people have thought about before. It's about the many creatures of our nightmares coming to create havoc. An army of demons is trying to take over control and will create a path of death and havoc. This book follows Gage who is one of the best Journeymen alive. Journeymen are a group of humans that are protecting people from these demons. I an't wait to read more by this author. I recommend this book to everyone.

    "Crazy Amazing "

    This book has everything going on. It operates on so many levels and it all gels well together. Romance. Paranormal. Road trips. Family reunions of sorts. Jokes. Good...Evil...the in between.

    One of my favorite aspects of the storyline itself is that it is very LGBT friendly. I've read a lot of stories where the gay character is always stereotypical. I can very much imagine a Joey in my life (in fact, he reminds me of my friend). In fact, the characters are so relatable, I can imagine bumping into folks like em in my everyday jaunts about town. That can be hard to do, especially in a paranormal story.

    Reminds me of Buffy, Supernatural, and the like. Specifically because of the hearts of the characters mixed with great jokes and dialogue.

    I purchased because of a Trailer Park Book Club recommendation, and I'm sticking with it because of 1) Golden's stupendous ability to create this world, and 2) Wen Ross makes my brain melt with his out of this world ability to further develop the characters and storyline with those dang amazing voices. I can't get enough! 🍆

    First I loved the narration of this book; the deep tambour and accent is perfect for Gage.
    This book sucks you in to this paranormal world of awesomeness. I can’t even explain how epic the fight/battle scenes or the imagery of it all. It’s just so detailed you feel as though your right there with them.

    Gage, Joey and Adrienne are Journeymen. They fight/slay demons and things that go bump in the night. To keep the humans safe sure, but to also keep the balance. There is something coming and its name is Noctis.

    These three have a friendship you can’t help but want in on. The wit and camaraderie are super cool with these guys I feel like the forth friend. :D

    Gage battles himself with his feeling for Adrienne he feels like he could be putting her in harm’s way if he brings her closer. He feels it is selfish but sometimes you just have to trust.

    “And sometimes love is the key that is missing in our lives.” – Gage.

    I also love this quote. So I am sharing 2 from our main man Gage.

    “The world may be imperfect darlin’ , but there are some perfect things in it.” - Gage

    I have to say I love how Adrienne is with Gage she jumps in feet first and she makes sure he knows it.

    “But I’m glad our feelings for each other are finally getting acknowledged and we’re acting on them. Life is a lonely road, but only until you find someone to travel with.” - Adrienne

    There is so much going on in this book that I read it first, than I listened to the audio. And still I bet if I re read it again; I will pick up on things I missed the first 2 times. I kind of love that about this book it’s almost like reading it for the first time and finding new things to love.

    *All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*

    "I adored this book and narration"

    Homeward Bound is the debut book from Golden Czermak (say what?!?!) and it blew me away. He has created a world so completely that it allows you to build such a vivid picture in your mind that you’re fully immersed in the story. His descriptive style of writing makes it so easy to imagine everything that is happening and what everyone and everything looks like. The action is written so wonderfully that I got very invested in the outcome, maybe a little too much at times. Shouting at your phone is normal, right?
    This book is not just something PNR fans will love, but romance fans in general. At the heart of this story is a relationship between three friends, they just happen to fight the bad guys…and they aren’t human.

    These characters are freaking awesome! Joey is such a sweetheart, I loved him from the get go. He’s a smart, strong badass. Ady is one kick ass woman! So, you know, I adored her, she’s beautiful and deadly, she could handle her own in a fight. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Gage, he’s your typical alpha male, but he isn’t, he’s funny and charming, self-assured yet has a vulnerable side. I loved that, he is such a great character to read about, I’m sure he was just as much fun to write too. The interactions between the three of them were fun. I had many laugh out loud moments. The Noctis made great ‘bad guys’ they did things that had me gasping in shock and shaking my head in disbelief, but then I remember they’re the bad guys and it wasn’t so shocking anymore. I liked the conflict between them and envision lots more action

    I loved the friendship between Gage, Ady and Joey, the tension and unrequited feelings. The way each individual dealt with and reacted to each situation. The humour really gave this book an added element and blended really well with the action and romance. The romance was sweet, seeing Gage and Ady interact and although they were friends they still had so much to learn about each other, and those moments of them getting to know each other were cute and heartfelt. The sex scenes are as hot as hades. Gage Crosse is a talented man! That bathroom scene though…. you know the one I mean. If you haven’t read or listened to it yet, we’ll talk 😉

    The end of the book had me so mad, I literally looked at my phone and said WTF? I’m not ashamed to say in my mind I was plotting ways in which to hurt Golden, I mean, come on! Why!?!?!?! Evil I tell you, he is evil!! LOL, in the best way possible. The book evoked so many different emotions and reactions out of me, I felt like I was on one heck of a wild ride, and really, I was.

    In all honesty, I started listening to this audiobook a year ago and I managed about 5 minutes before I couldn’t take it anymore. The characters just didn’t sound right, but lately I’ve been hearing such wonderful things about Wen Ross’ performances that I figured maybe it was time to give Homeward Bound another try, especially since it had been a while since I was immersed in the Journeyman world.
    OH, MY GOD!!!!! What the heck was I thinking? Wen is freaking AMAZING!!!! Seriously, at some points I found myself double checking that this was a single narration, his voice range is astounding. The fact that he seamlessly transitioned from the Southern Drawl narration into British dialogue still has me in awe. I am one of the worse critics when it comes to the British accent, and he totally blew me away. And when I say British accent I’m not talking Downton Abbey type British that so many people like to use. That of itself was brilliant as far as I was concerned. If you’ve read the books you’ll know there are a wide variety of characters, human and not, each one was made to sound so distinct that you never had to wonder which character the dialogue was for. Gage Crosse is one of my favourites, of course, and he was performed brilliantly, I had so many laugh out loud moments it wasn’t even funny. Wen doesn’t just have the voices and narration down pat, but also the emotion, I’m not saying I cried in public…but…I’ll probably shop at a different store for a while. Read into that what you will.
    This is a perfect example of how sometimes you need to take time away from the characters you know and love to truly appreciate them in a different medium. Although I am sad it took me so long, I feel I’ve been missing out. Now to make up for lost time!

    "My Two Pennies"

    Looking for a great paranormal story? Journeymen is the series for you. We're introduced to a sexy and hot as sin Gage, he's part of a group of supernatural hunters which includes Adrienne and the chemistry between these two is on fire. With being the first book in the series, we learn a lot about each of the characters and how the Journeymen stared. The whole story flowed rather smoothly and my attention was kept throughout. The way we're left I am drying to get going on Seal Of Solomon next. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

    Story
    "I really wanted to like this series."
    What did you like best about Homeward Bound? What did you like least?

    The narrator is amazing. He could read the phone book and make it sound exciting.The story had so much potential. I loved the first 1/2 of the book... then it started to fall apart. Dialogue became contrived in order to move the plot forward. Some of the lines were so cheesy that I felt like the author was inviting me to share in a joke.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Golden Czermak again?

    I'm not sure. There were parts that were great, but it's hard to get passed the silly stuff. I'm an avid reader of urban fantasy, so am pretty good at suspending my belief. However, the dialogue still has to feel real. The second 1/2 of the book really missed the mark on that point.


    Which character – as performed by Wen Ross – was your favorite?

    Gage. I very much enjoyed the main character's humor... big, tough guy who doesn't take himself too seriously. The narrator was pitch perfect.


    Could you see Homeward Bound being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe if Quentin Tarrantino helps with the dialogue.
