"We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." - Jules Verne

The Templar Chronicles: This Cleansing Fire (audiobook) by Joseph Nassise
Published December 2011 by GraphicAudio
Length: about 47 minutes.
This short audiobook was originally a short story in a larger collection but author Joseph Nassise has expanded on this story with several other books. GraphicAudio has adapted it to a radio drama format with multiple cast members and plenty of special effects.
The story features Captain Cade Williams, a member of the hidden Catholic order the Knights Templar. They are charged with fighting supernatural forces. One would think they might be a bunch of priests, but they are an elite commando unit carrying modern combat weapons and special swords.
In this story, the team is sent out to find and destroy a group of Asian vampires. They are not Asians, per se, but this type of vampire originated in Asia. Another team was already sent in but they are not reporting back and Captain Williams and his team fear the worst.
GraphicAudio's high production qualities make short stories like this one a lot of fun. Lots of slam bam action is supported by high quality special effects and actors that make the action pop.
This audiobook is available for free download on GraphicAudio's webpage. Click here for details. The link at the top of the page is to the free Kindle version of the story.
I rate this audiobook 4 stars out of 5.
