I recommend Ashen Rayne to fans of action and LGBT romance genres. I added the book to my library because it is categorized on Audible.com as Mysteries & Thrillers / Modern Detective.
I commend author Skye Knizley for using entertaining literature as a platform to increase awareness and social responsibility. Knizley gives readers/listeners a high energy, action packed experience through Ashen Rayne. Characters Smoke and Ashe rock the Russian mob and save girls abducted girls from disappearing into the black hole of sex trade. The reader never gets the sense that these non-mainstreamers fall victim to or even identify with self-pity, or society’s judgments. Instead Smoke and Ashe are strong, self-assured superheroes, who vilify pettiness and bring down exploiters. Romance is also woven into the adventure.
Without giving anything away, my favorite part of the book involved a wild plane ride, wine, and cheese. I envisioned myself in that plane, being brave, living rich, and having fun. This brings me to the trouble I had with the book: It was the only part that drew me in. Also, I did not connect with the characters.
The narrator, Sierra Kline, distinctly portrayed each character. Her pace and inflection complimented the story. She reads like she cares. Great job.

loved this book!!! bad ass women kicking ass! can't wait to read more by this author!
Having already read and loved the book I was hoping that the audio would be able to create the same satisfaction and was not disappointed. Sierra has the perfect delivery for Ashen Rayne, creating attitude and sass that are essential for Skye's stories. The tale is a well-placed action thriller, progressing onward in a movie-like style allowing the listener to visualise it as if on the big screen. There are numerous action scenes that pack punches and Sierra keeps the pace of the writing going. Having listened to some big books and hated the narration, I know how important Narrator choice is. Hopefully Sierra will be on board for future Skye Knizley audio adventures.
