Publisher's Summary

August Hayling went west following the discovery of gold in California. While most prospectors were hoping to strike it rich, August was more interested in a place big enough to let him get lost. Sitting alone in a saloon, he is approached by a peculiar man named Georgios Cappadocia, who offers August a fortune in gold if August will come along and help him fetch it.
August soon learns that his strange new employer is engaged in some kind of ancient dispute. And when they arrive at their destination, both men will realize that not all treasures are golden - and sometimes destinies can be changed.

Great short story

Very short historical fantasy. I loved what we were able to see of the characters and the universe. The audio at times felt very fast if a bit jarring. Almost like one big run on sentance in certain places. I had to slow it down quite a bit to 0.9x speed. KC does great voices though as usual and I loved the writing style

Very Surprising and Wonderful!

This is very surprising! I always expect wonderful writing, unique story lines and muti-faceted charachers from Kim Fielding, so I don’t know why I was so surprised by this story.

From the blurb I wasn’t sure what to expect but I figured maybe there’d be some romance in the new town. Well, I’m not going to give this away with a spoiler – but what I thought was right and wrong…

In any case, by the time I got to the end I got a really big laugh and I could really appreciate him Fielding‘s sense of humor and sense of irony. I loved how she handled the physical part of their relationship! So funny and sweet too.

(The only thing that would have made this story better is if we could have spent more time with our guys once they get together…)
I love KC Kelly I think he is a fantastic narrator. His voice - obviously - doesn’t always go with every story but it absolutely goes with the story. It has the old California-gold-dust-cowboy-prospector tone of voice. Old fashioned. And he’s really good with any sort of emotions and the comedic timing.

This is a really surprising and a really interesting, totally unique story. I would definitely recommend this to people who are interested in something new and different, who appreciate humor and history, and who are willing to look at things from a different perspective.
