A brilliant story with great characters

This book is very well written. It’s a great story.

It’s full of thrills and suspense. I liked Diane’s character. I also really liked the hunters and their use of technology. The quick pace and action kept me hooked throughout the story.
The characters are well developed as well as the plot.
It’s well plotted so that at key moments a new twist is revealed and that twist neatly answers questions.
The author skilfully weaves a really great story.
I like the way that modern day skepticism and ancient mystical concepts are brought together and combined to form the world in which the story unfolds.

What a variety this story offers including; reluctant psychics, a five-hundred year old serial killer, ghosts, bold grandmothers, a secret society, and an autistic young man with a brilliant mind.
I loved the variety and the characters that the author crafts.
The narration adds to both the pace and the general feel of the book. I really enjoyed it.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

I’ll just listen to another chapter.....

10 chapters later.
It keeps you captivated although it started slow introducing the characters when the story gets going you can’t stop listening.
This is the first I have listened too from the author and he does a great job with the characters especially the bad guy as he made me really hate him and his hatred of women. The narrator does a great job with the characters and the different accents.

A Strong Start For A New Series.

"Prophecy of Ashes" is an interesting story of father and son hunters who are after a supernatural being called a Wraith. The wraith likes to work through human operatives that it grants immortality to in exchange for doing its bidding. Unfortunately, the wraith's bidding requires his operatives to regularly perform human sacrifices.

"Prophecy of Ashes" unfolds through multiple story threads and multiple characters who will eventually converge to make for a very good reading/listening experience. Although there were some slow spots for me, the storytelling, overall, is excellent and the characters are well developed. The choice of narrator was also top notch. I really enjoyed "Prophecy of Ashes." I consider it a strong opening entry for a new urban fantasy series. I look forward to the next book.

Intriguing story!

This story develops around the groups before they all merge. There are wraith hunters who hunt every 50 years. Diane a woman who believes she's an empath and the wraith who is a psychopath. There are thrills and suspense but I have to admit I didn't really like Diane. She was kind of whiney through most of the story and I wished the wraith would have tortured her. On the other hand there was enough elements to keep me listening. One of them was wondering when the wraith was gonna kill her and how he'd do it. Would it be bloody and quick or slow and painful?

I loved the hunters and their use of technology. That was clever but it was the young stud hunter who thought of it and it was a nice touch. If the police and FBI use this stuff why not a couple guys searching for a wraith? It makes sense and added a lot to the story. Overall it was enjoyable with its quick pace and action. The characters are developed as well as the plot.

The narrator does a really great job with the voices of both the male and female characters.

I received this book free for an honest review.

Great start to a Great Series!

Very strong heroine. She has got what it takes to finish off the bad guys. I enjoyed the way the characters were developed throughout the story line and it kept you on your toes all the way to the end. The mixture of ancient and modern tech was great. Just wish the narrator had a little more ump-ff in her reading.

Entertaining

Prophecy of Ashes is a supernatural thriller and first book in the Wraith Hunter Chronicles. The story involves a 20 something female who is the caregiver for her autistic sibling. Both siblings have unique abilities that are revealed as the story rolls along. There is ritualistic murder, kidnapping with chains, and some physical violence. I found the story entertaining and interesting but may not be for all thriller enthusiasts due to the items listed in the above sentence. The characters are likable and relatable but don’t have a lot of depth, which may be revealed as the stories continue. The narrator did a good job.

Good Psychic Thriller

It took some time to get used to the multiple POV but once I grasped who the characters were it was smooth sailing. The narrator did a fine job bringing the story & characters to life. The pacing was steady and overall I enjoyed this first in series.

It was pretty decent

I feel pretty much the same about this book as I did about the first book in the Dresden Files all those years ago... The story was cool, the characters were pretty interesting, the narrator was fine, but I don't know if I would keep reading it. Fortunately, that wasn't the first Dresden FIles book that I listened to, so I knew it got better. I don't have that luxury here.

It's a perfectly fine book, don't get me wrong, but it never really grabbed me. I found myself thinking about other things just as much as the book when listening to the car. I got enough of the story to know what was happening, and there are several really riveting moments, but on the whole, it was the definition of "okay" for me.

I might continue the series, but I'll definitely have to go back and listen again to remember all of what happened if I do.
