This book is suitable for adult readers only! Not suitable for the biggoted or homophobic.
First of all, it's by Skye Knizley, so you know it's going to be kickass. Two female main characters, Smoak and Ash, are the perfect heroines. There's lots of action and an awesome plot, not to mention great world building and snappy dialogue. Ms. Knizley has found a lifelong fan in me.
Skye Knizley is definitely a talented writer and the plot of the book is great. It just would have been nice if the main character was written as a kick ass woman of action who operates within the boundary of what is humanly possible. Instead, she is written so super human that no matter what happens in the story, I never believe she is in trouble. For me, the action scenes held no excitement or sense of tension because there’s no sense of peril when someone is unbeatable. When you have a character like that, action scenes are boring. Skye Knizley attempts to explain away Ash’s abilities by saying she was trained in the military to be something akin to a GI Jane, special forces, female soldier. Come on now! You can’t even get into the military if you’re deaf. If you don’t have perfect hearing, then you actually must have a specific percentage of hearing or better, in both ears.
Sierra Kline is the narrator for this novel. She has a very attractive voice, but I feel her performance sometimes lacked distinction in the voices of the characters. At times, everyone sounded the same.
If you are able to suspend your disbelief, then I think you will like “Ashen Rayne: Shadowlands, Book 1.” It’s otherwise, a good story. If, however, you lean more toward my point of view, then don’t spend your money on this one. Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Blast.

This was an entertaining listen. It is along the lines of 007, with the action getting more and more unbelievable with each confrontation.Read more
