Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I was disappointed with this book for several reasons, first, there was so much repeated from the previous 2 books, explaining in painful detail small details that were not needed to be explained. This added several unneeded hours/words to the book. Like author needed to have a certain amount of words/pages as a requirement.
I fast forwarded through most of the sex scenes, as they are very repetitive. Perhaps this book was rushed by the author, I'm not sure.
I like Suzanne Wright, but not sure if I will continue this series (if it continues). I like the shifter stories, wish more time was spent on different breeds and their abilities.
Has Ashes turned you off from other books in this genre?
no it has not
Did Cat Doucette do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Actually feel narrator improved from previous 2 books.
Do you think Ashes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Imagine there will be another, since the horsemen issue is not resolved.
Any additional comments?
Some technical issues in chapters 3 and 4. Chapter 3 approx 9 minutes in, a chunk of the Carla story was gone.
Chapter 4, 37:34 repeats

The entire series has been fantastic. Cat is a wonderful narrator. Knox and Harper are perfect together while being complete opposites. I hope the next has more about them but starts the stories for Harper's friends and Knox's sentinels, it will probably be Tanner and Daven first or Chloe and Keenan, whichever one it is I will be happy when its released.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Add a lot more to the plot, put in some of the snarky humor or cut out the waffle and make it half the length.
What will your next listen be?
The final book in Faith Hunters Rogue Mage series called Host
- Not Faith Hunters best series but still a decent listen
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The only bit that had my full attention was the climax. Hardly a spoiler to suggest that one of the lead characters is in mortal peril from someone with evil intent but it has an interesting twist
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ashes?
All the padding scenes where nothing happens apart from Thorne being protective etc
Seriously this book would be much better if it was half the length.
Any additional comments?
Nothing like as good as the previous books in this series which themselves are not as good as the Phoenix pack books. This book is also aimed full on at female readers
