Publisher's Summary

A former mercenary turned blind priest, Ash is running from his amoral past - a victim of a power-hungry corporation, Titanus, which used him for mysterious experiments, discarding him when he lost his sight. 

Through its experimentation, Titanus unwittingly created a dark mirror world called Shade, a place where no human can survive - except for Ash. By opening a rift, Ash can escape into Shade, where his vision is restored, his wounds heal more quickly, and, if necessary, he can drag his attackers in with him, turning them to dust. 

While attempting to implement a global teleportation system, Titanus makes a grave error and opens several dangerous rifts, which threaten to tear the planet apart. Believing Ash to be the only one able to close them, Titanus exploits those Ash cares about most to coerce him into cooperating. 

But the creatures they have inadvertently released from Shade will be the least of their worries.

Simply Brilliant

Ash is the latest supernatural thriller from Australian author Luke Romyn. Aside from the typical heart pounding action that Romyn adds to all his work he brings a plethora of well developed, new characters that are sure to become favorites for years to come. Luke not only gives an action packed story but also teases the intellect with the very nature of the Universe itself.

An action packed nail biter from beginning to end!

I enjoyed this book very much. Very well written and kept my attention and interest. I would love to see a sequel to this book or even better a prequel! So mush of Ash is still a mystery.

Mostly Very Good but last 10% Disappointing

Luke Romyn writing is quite good and Jay Snyder's narrating performance is as well, especially for Ash. The thriller aspects of the story is on par with other stories by such authors such as Dean Koontz.

I found the areas where the Ash's primary antagonists met their ending was not all that exciting and at least in one case, wasn't known until sometime after the Boss battle and then Ash only heard about it secondhand. The ending was an unsatisfying faux-ending in that there were open issues and while there was a hint that another story may follow this one, it was far from certain, leaving the listener perplexed.

it was ok

I can't say poorly written, but I could see the plot unfold three or four chapters before it happened. I kept listening just so I could get to the end. it is a 2nout of 5 star story. 😪

written by a child?

I bought this book hoping the premise could carry it . . the premise seemed sound, but the writing was so simplistic I could not proceed. Either the author underestimates the intelligence of the reader or the writer has not read enough book s to know where to pitch the premise.

PROMISING START TO A SERIES

Not too keen on the reader, but the story was okay. Loved the dog/shadow hound. Good start to a series. A bit of this and that from other books in the genre, but a good listen anyway.

Fantastic

Have read the book twice and the story is brilliant, but wasn’t sure what to expect with audible as I had never experienced it before. I have to say this was fantastic. It’s like a whole new world of story telling. I love it and so glad that Ash was my first experience, a book that has an incredibly engaging story, I can’t wait to see where it goes next. Thanks.
