Audiobook Tour: Ash by Luke Romyn

Author: Luke Romyn

Narrator: Jay Snyder

Length: 14 hours 26 minutes

Publisher: Audible Original

Released: Jun. 6, 2019

Genre: Action; Fantasy


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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sugar. Honey. Iced. Tea.

I was not expecting that at all. Luke Romyn's ASH is PHENOMENAL. Not only is the story top-notch, but the narrator, Jay Snyder, could not have been anyone else. Going into this audiobook, I did not know what to expect. Every time I turned a corner and I thought I knew what was coming, I was dead wrong. And I freakin' loved it! Each chapter unlocked a new detail about Ash and getting to know the people around him, hearing their reactions to this mystery, non-priest was just mind-blowing.
The story alone is above average. I do not know what to "compare" this book to, because it seems to be its own version of supernatural/paranormal and mystery/suspense. Luke Romyn has a winner. I would love to see a movie or a TV series based on this book.
Jay Snyder was amazing with his narration. I cannot say that I have heard him narrate before because I cannot recall it at all. The audio itself was the best I've ever heard before.
