Sometimes you sit down to write a review and have so many things you want to say you aren’t even sure where to start. This is Homeward Bound for me. Golden has blown me away- with the plot, with his writing, with his imagination, with everything. He did such amazing job, it’s hard to believe this is his first book.

Let me start by saying that Golden has converted me to the paranormal genre. Me. The romance reader. The lover of happily ever afters and things all nicey nicey. The one who doesn’t li

Where do I begin first time Author Golden Czermak has exceeded all my expectation with Homeward Bound. When I was given this ARC I was expecting a good story. I was literally blown away this is absolutely amazing story.

This is the first book in The Journeyman Series. Where you first met Gage Crosse " the best damn Journeyman around".

Homeward Bound is a thrill ride action packed adventures, good verse evil and the amazing love and chemistry between Gage, Adrienne and Joey. There is a host of cha

First let me say that I have NEVER ever read a PNR book so for me to read this book is a huge thing. But, I love Golden Czermak as a person so when this showed up on my kindle I thought, what the heck let's give this a try. Well I'm so glad I took this chance because I LOVED this book.

With his incredible artistic eye, Mr. Czermak was able to bring me into the story from beginning to end. His descriptions of not only the main players in this story,

I just finished Homeward Bound and my mind is still numb. Book Hangover? I say yes and absolutely sure I will be thinking about Gage and Adrienne all day. I'm in awe of Golden's writing. And just to think, this is his first book! So very proud of his accomplishments.

We have demons called the Noctis, latin word for 'night'. They are growing in strength and will not be stopped. "The Journeymen, human and supernatural beings United against the darkness."

First off I consider myself a Paranormal Queen and I'm very picky when it comes to this genre. So with that being said I'm happy to report I was blown away with this book. The storyline held my attention, the writing was really good. The author took the time to research and it shows. This book wasn't just thrown together. This is how you do Paranormal!! The story was very detailed and descriptive and I could "see" myself in the story. What I liked most about this book was that it wasn't a cliche ...more

Wow what an amazing book !!! Golden Czermak's debut as an author blew me away. Homeward Bound (Journeyman #1) was well written and thorough from start to finish. Cannot wait until book 2 to see how the story continues.

Gage, Adrienne and Joey's chemistry was awesome. The banter between the 3 showed the level of familiarity and love that they had for each other. I haven't read a paranormal that has kept me reading late into the night since J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood.

I'm not really sure where to start.

PNR is not the genre I typically read, although I have read a few. This journey felt like a mixture of Game Of Thrones, The Terminator, Sci-fi, and Paranormal, throwing in Romance with some humor. Golden did an amazing job describing the characters as if they were in front of you, visualizing the horrific battles they went through, along with the eye rolls during the humorous times. I could see the creatures as they entered the different scenes and bloodshed, a

269 pages of AH-mazing. You will need a study guide to keep up with the extensive cast of characters but you only really need to know Gage, Joey and Adrienne. ;) Mixed with action packed scenes reminiscent of the best battles in Game of Thrones and Halo and the heat of a good love story with off the charts chemistry, Homeward Bound offers something for every reader. I cannot recommend this book enough and you would never know by reading it that is a debut release for this author. I found myself ...more

To say Homeward Bound by Golden Czermak is above and beyond amazing would be the understatement of the universe. I have always believed that his take on paranormal, with a romantic twist, would literally be in a world all of it's own from page one. He's quiet the word smith and clever at describing the scene as you read it. We are teased relentlessly on social media about this HOT unstoppable supernatural killing machine known as Gage Chrosse, who is inked, stacked with muscle in all the right p ...more

Okay. When I’m wrong I will be the first to admit it and I was wrong about this one. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a huge paranormal fan. Vampires, demons and such are really not my cup of tea, but based on the recommendation of a friend, I grabbed a copy of Homeward Bound and am so glad that I did.

It was different, yet engaging and had me hooked almost immediately. I literally consumed 80% of this book in one sitting. And the writing was impeccable, so descriptive an

I started off knowing I would read this because of the author, I don't read fantasy but I was willing to try. Let me tell you, this was AWESOME!! There was so much action, so much fun, so many feelings throughout this book. It has something for everyone, fantasy, romance, emotion, action, you name it and it's here. For a new author, Golden Czermak makes out like a seasoned author, no way you would think with the level of detail and thought that he hadn't written a book before let alone one of th ...more

“Not all of me shall die…

This book has the makings of a movie. And I mean it. It has so many potential that while I was starting, I was seeing it in my head play in slow motion, vivid detail after vivid detail after another. It was just that the first few paragraphs has showed me a picture in my head and so it made me anticipate and increase my expectations of what’s more to come.

But therein lies the problem. It was me raising the bar high for this book, and when it did

It's been a long time since I've delved into something so clearly fantasy, and I have to say I missed it. There was so much happening in the story, that my review may seem a bit jumbled, so I apologize in advance :)

Initial Observations
That very first paragraph. As an English teacher, and avid reader, the descriptive words chosen for this story were some of the best I've read. I know that sometimes if you're too descriptive in a story, it can be perceived as cheesy or trying too hard. This did no

This is a really interesting paranormal story filled to the brim with some pretty spectacular creatures and kick butt characters and I loved reading this! The journeymen are an elite group of warriors that protect the human race against all manners of supernatural nasties that have the complete destruction of the human race as their objective. This group is not to be messed with and can handle pretty much anything thrown at them with finesse and I loved this! There’s some pretty big plans brewin ...more

Well where to begin... Homeward Bound Journeyman series is the debut book by Golden Czermak. While it is written nice, he really goes into detail describing the scene, it just wasn't my cup of tea. It's about a group of 3 Journeyman that go and hunt down evil demons (called Noctis) with a little love mixed in. You have Joey who wants Gage and then Gage and Adrienne together. I will say Golden was very detailed in his storyline and he told the story from each of the three main characters

Well, where do I start with this review? We are seriously thrown in the deep end in this new world! No gently leading you in to the story but absolutely action packed from the start to the end.

I struggled a bit at first with the writing style, I'm used reading from the characters point of view so it took a bit of getting used to reading from the outside again. That being said, I really loved the descriptive style once I got into it. Almost panoramic in nature you could nearly be watching a film

Amazing Writing

It was all about the writing for me with this one. Golden uses words like an artist uses paint to bring you into the world of the Journeymen. He uses colorful adjectives making it a visceral experience. It made it easy to picture every scene in my mind. I truly got lost in this world. The battle scenes were filled with detail bringing to life the action and suspense. And through the characters, especially the main characters, he was able to weave emotion into this well-painted pi

Paranormal is one of my favorite genres. I could not have asked for more in a story. It's packed full of creatures, vampires, ghosts, ogres, monsters, beasts, demons, and more. The action keeps the story moving at the perfect pace and the attention to details puts you right there. The descriptions of the places, the creatures and the battles, I saw it all playing like a

I laughed several times and of course there were times where I wanted to throttle the character. Golden... that was quiet the cliffhanger to leave us with.

Received an ARC. I have been looking forward to Homeward Bound! I must say it is absolutely fabulous! What a debut for Golden Czermak. Homeward Bound has so much detail that I could actually visualize each character and each scene.

The characters are so strong and full of chemistry it makes a low simmer turn into an erupting volcano. What a ...more

This book has taken me through a trip I could never imagine myself taking. At times slow where it drove me nuts and at times moving so fast that I had to re read some pages, because it felt like I missed something.

Homeward Bound is a story that concentrates on the paranormal aspects with a side of relationships. There is fabulous worldbuilding here – it is quite a different world, fraught with demons, vampires and other beings. The Journeymen are a group of people who have formed an organization whose goal it is to rid the world of evil demons and other paranormals.

Gage Cross is one of the most well known Journeymen known for his effectiveness at taking out the bad guys. He and his teammates, Adrienne and
