Blurb: Killian Desmond’s dreams died in a flash of pain and the scream of twisted metal. He lost it all the night a tour bus sailed off a mountainside, sending his band – with his brother – to their deaths. Killian is dead, too, if the papers are to be believed, and living a half-life of odd jobs, rodeo rides, and pick-up gigs. The road that once meant freedom is now Killy’s exile. No strings, no ties, no names for the one-night stands.
Answering a tribute band’s ad thrusts him face-to-face with his past and into the arms of the one man who just might understand.
Review: Killian Desmond was once famous. He had it all. One night an accident takes everything, even his reason to stay rooted to a life he no longer can control or reconcile, so Killy drifts from town to town merely existing. The world has moved on, given him up for dead, until one night he accepts a gig as a backup singer for a cover band. He makes a connection with the lead singer, and they rock the house like the old days. Things get complicated, though, when their on-stage connection becomes physical. In just a few short days, Killian is reconsidering never learning the real name of his hookups, but Texas changes that for him in unexpected ways.
Darcy Stark is an excellent narrator, and he takes Eden Winters’ story and pours raw emotion into it. In this very short piece, less than two hours, Stark gives voice to Killian’s return from the wilderness into living life again. You can really feel the jerk from past pain into wanting to be part of reality again. The narration here is as masterful as the words of this story. Pick up the audio if you can. You will not be disappointed.
