HeartBorn by Terry Maggert Audio Blog Tour and Audio Review




Her guardian angel was pushed.

Keiron was never meant to be anything other than a hero. Born high above in a place of war and deception, he is Heartborn, a being of purity and goodness in a place where violence and deceit are just around every corner.

His disappearance will spark a war he cannot see, for Keiron has pierced the light of days to save a girl he has never met, for reasons he cannot understand. Livvy Foster is seventeen, brave, and broken. With half a heart, she bears the scars of a lifetime of pain and little hope of survival.

Until Keiron arrives.

In the middle of a brewing war and Livvy’s failing heart, Keiron will risk everything for Livvy, because a Heartborn’s life can only end in one way: Sacrifice.

Fall with Livvy and Keiron as they seek the truth about her heart, and his power, and what it means to love someone who will give their very life to save you.

7226905Born in 1968, I discovered fishing shortly after walking, a boon, considering I lived in South Florida. After a brief move to Kentucky, my family trekked back to the Sunshine State. I had the good fortune to attend high school in idyllic upstate New York, where I learned about a mythical substance known as “Seasons”. After two or three failed attempts at college, I bought a bar. That was fun because I love beer, but, then, I eventually met someone smarter than me (a common event), and, in this case, she married me and convinced me to go back to school–which I did, with enthusiasm. I earned a Master’s Degree in History and rediscovered my love for writing. My novels explore dark fantasy, immortality, and the nature of love as we know it. I live near Nashville, Tennessee, with the aforementioned wife, son, and herd, and, when I’m not writing, I teach history, grow wildly enthusiastic tomato plants, and restore my 1967 Mustang.


pastedimageJulia Whelan has appeared in many films and television series, most notably ABC’s Once And Again. After receiving a degree in English and Creative Writing at Middlebury College and Oxford University, Julia began narrating audiobooks. She’s recorded hundreds of novels across all genres and has received multiple Earphones and Audie Awards. She is repeatedly named one of Audiofile Magazine’s Best Voices and was Audible’s Narrator of the Year.


This is my first story by this author and I loved listening to this book! I am a sucker for pretty much anything that has to do with angles. I encourage you to get your hands on this story because I promise you won't be disappointed.

Livvy is a teenager that is born with a rare heart condition. When a very handsome stranger walks into the library where she works her world takes on a sudden change. Keiron is a Heartborn angel and must protect Livvy.  He gets thrust down to earth while his absence back at home is on the brink of war.

The author did an amazing job with the world building. It was so vivid and tangible. The chapters are told from different settings and points of views but the transition through them transitioned very nice. I also liked the character development within the story. I always love a good plot driven story that makes me feel like I am apart of the story and that is exactly how I felt. This is really a beautiful story.

The writing added to the wow factor for the story. Although it was quick I felt the writing took a pace that was well engaging and kept me wanting to keep listening throughout the day.

I just love the narrator's voice. It was calm and very fitting for this story as well. She made the characters come to life and made the world very vivid. This is my first audio book that I have listened to with Whelan as the narrator and I look forward to listening to more of her works.
