Publisher's Summary

Evan Portin is at a sad, scary place in his life. While taking a long walk to compose himself and figure out where to go from here, he encounters a young woman being mugged in a park.
When he tries to intervene, he discovers that she doesn't need his help. At all.
Her name is Harriett. She is very, very good at defending herself. Everything she owns is in a large backpack. She's never seen a cell phone. She's never been in a car. She's never really ventured into the outside world.
And she says she's traveling across the country to slay a Cyclops.
She's crazy, right? Evan is not in the habit of hanging out with delusional women he's just met. On the other hand, it can't hurt to offer her a ride out of town. And maybe this insane journey is exactly what he needs...
A brand new adventure from the four-time Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of Blister, Dweller, and Wolf Hunt.

Cyclops Road

What did you love best about Cyclops Road?

I was fully entertained, and hard to put it down. This book is not the usual horror themes from Jeff, but there is some horror in it. It's more of a road trip adventure tale. And full of twisted humor

Fantasy At Its Finest

Evan Portin has just lost his wife to cancer, still grieving, he quits the job he hates. What more could possibly go wrong? How about walking up on a mugging in the process! Evan goes against his better judgment and wades in to help a damsel in distress. How embarrassing that this damsel named Harriet ends up kicking ass all by herself.

Life changes completely when a skeptical Evan decides to help Harriet, as she heads to Arizona to kill a Cyclops terrorizing a small town. Along the way Evan and Harriet slowly pull together a rather reluctant ragtag team of fellow Cyclops hunters.

Magnificent! That's all I can say… well, maybe I can say more like, what a wonderful audiobook!
It’s mainly fantasy and but it has humor, suspense, heartbreak all mixed up together and what you end up with is a story you’re sad to see the end.

Joe Hempel narrates and his winning streak continues with this nearly 8-hour audiobook. I’ve only listened to Joe Hempel read fantasy/sci-fi and he is one of the best narrators in this genre, especially when there’s humor involved. He is so expressive and does well, voicing both genders. I often wonder if he just picks the type of books I like or if I like whatever Joe reads… hmm... The old chicken or the egg quandary. Either way, Joe is the rare narrator that I search for when I’m looking for a good audiobook. I know I'm guaranteed a good listen.
