    "I actually wasted a credit on this!"

    The Headline is all you need. This book/series is terrible! Run away fast and far. The Character's get more exotic but no less weak and whiny. Then we get a romance forced on us. The vampires are still there, although outside of the two main ones they really aren't. The constant travel to supposedly randomly places where they find anything but random things. Everything falling perfectly into place without any struggle. Then forced struggles. Then...Ah. So bad!

    I'm an avid reader and writer who is brand new to the audiobook scene, and so far... I love it.

    "I want more!"
    Where does Reign of Ash rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of all the audio books I've listened to I would put this book as a solid second place.


    What other book might you compare Reign of Ash to and why?

    This book reminds me of a Shannara-esc world, but also a bit of The Hallows.


    What about Tim Reynolds’s performance did you like?

    He has a very nice voice to listen to, though every now and hen character voices get mixed up.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Apocalypse, Magic, War, and Romance.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the sequel to Ice Forged and I loved it. I cannot wait until the next book comes out!

    "Not as good as the first."

    I actually enjoyed the first book, but this book seemed to just drag on. There were a few too many scenes that were just a little too obvious. Some things happen in the book that I was looking forward to, but they were very anti-climatic. Some of the main characters in this book also take a large step backwards. There is a good amount of whining from one and others make some really unbelievably stupid choices.
