The Crown of Ash follows on immediately from where we left off at the end of the third novel in the series Soulrazor. Danica Black, Mike Kane, Ronan & Mauer are now in Blacksands, hiding out while being pursued by a multitude of bounty hunters. Cross is alive but still unconscious and after weeks shows no signs of improvement. The team is being protected by Klos Vago a member of the shard, a cartel of smugglers and slavers, with no money and no real choice, they are forced into doing the dir [...]

This series is one of the best I have picked up in a long time.Everything about the world Montano has created sucks you in. The characters are well developed, with no gaps that force you to make up your own back story to flesh them out.The world is far enough separated from our own to make it "other-worldly" but not so far removed that pages are needed to describe the simplest of concepts.The action is believable, with powers and magic having flaws just as any other combat style might.Overall, I [...]

Full review originally over at Fantasy Book Critic ANALYSIS: I have been reading Steven Montano’s series since I discovered the first book early last year. I have read the first three books so far and while I didn't enjoy the third book as much as the first two, I’m still enjoying the series as a whole. The first two books had standalone plots while the third book ended on a cliffhanger of sorts. The fourth book picks up immediately after the events of Soulrazor and the readers get a glimpse [...]

All I can say about this book is, "HOLY SDF#$)%U)@#*"! This series keeps getting better and better, and I keep wondering how much more Mr. Montano can throw at his characters, and how much more they can take before they turn their spirits and hexed bullets on HIM!This fourth book of the Blood Skies series starts out relatively slow, but builds in intensity with each page. No spoilers here, but the world-building and fantastic writing leaves me wanting more and more and more I can't wait for book [...]

All right, so I found myself in an unusual position with this book. Generally, I am very well aware of what I like and what I don't like when I am reading a book. With this one, however, I kept having to pull myself back out of the book and back into my head in order to reflect on what I had read. In other words, it was a good book. It captured my attention fully and truly pulled me into the world that was described between the pages. Before I get into specifics, I would like to add that I don't [...]

It’s hard to believe because his earlier work is so strong, but Steven Montano has upped his game with Crown of Ash, the fourth book in the Blood Skies series. Montano (@Daezarkian) writes exceptionally vivid prose, painting pictures with words that allow the reader to fully experience the wonderfully dark dystopian world he’s created. Picking up shortly after the closing events of the previous entry, Crown of Ash has everything we’ve come to expect from this series: exciting fantasy/sci-f [...]

When I first finished Crown of Ash I was a complete blubbering mess. As I laid my kindle down and tried to form a coherent thought, I was at a loss. Seriously, I just sat there, but then one thought formedwhat? and then it became WHAT? Are you serious? My thoughts sort of continued like this for about ten minutes before I could really sit back and process my real thoughts about the book. And what it really boils down to is that this book blew my mind. Simply put, it was the best so far and was j [...]

Well what do I say? There is little for me to say beyond the usual: Steve Montano is a master of creating vivid worlds full of chains, shadows, and creatures beyond nightmarish description. I can fill a short story with the amount of sheer descriptive wizardry this author can produce. I was completely drawn into the world after the Black from the very first book and was excited to visit every dark corner of this world.Unfortunately, the qualms remain the same. The characters never really develop [...]

The world created by Montano is felt in every scene. I was anxious to see where the new book took me, and I wasn't disappointed. I'm not one for long winded reviews, so the short version of my review follows.The landscapes painted by Montano are once again superb. I found myself in the scenes, feeling the darkness of it all, and that's a good thing. Vivid description is the key to me enjoying fantasy worlds. If I can't find myself walking next to the characters, I lose interest. With that being [...]

The fourth book in the Blood Skies series is deep, dark, and intense. The beast of The Black leaves its mark once again; some are going to live and some are going to die. Crown of Ash is more cerebral than the other books in the series. Mr. Montano gives the reader a closer look inside the minds of Danica Black, Eric Cross, and Michael Kane; feeling their pain and heartache as they continue fighting to protect their bond of friendship. Crown of Ash pushes the reader deep into the dark recesses o [...]

I love watching the evolution of an author as they work through a series. The worlds become more real and the characters deepen and seem like someone that perhaps might come by for tea. Well, maybe not the characters in Montano's book, tea might seem frivolous and strange after what they have all been through.What I am loving so much more than I ever thought I would about this series (because it truly is outside of my normal reading) is the way the characters are with each other. These are peopl [...]

Wow. This is one bad book, and not in a poorly written way. Montano has done it again. Cross, Kane, Black, and company are in for another treacherous journey. The Revengers battle seemed like a hardcore Battle Royale/Road Warrior battle. Steven has really put it to his characters. The Shadow Lords were a nice addition as well as the other villains this time. Danica Black - holy crap what does she have to go through and will she be in The Witch's Eye? Just when I thought Steven could not come up [...]

The joy of discovering a consistent franchise is difficult to describe. You hope the next one in the series is going to be as good and you fear that it is not. This mixture of hope and fear is what great franchises manage to deliver book after book making sure your fear does not materialize. With Crown of Ash, Steven is managing this balance extremely well. The book continues from where Soulrazer ended but now has another POV added. So we flew through narratives from three protagonists and its j [...]

Here is another great read from Steve Montano!!This part, in the continuing Blood Skies series, sees the team split into 3 separate (but joint) stories each of them ending in the same place.This part also sees Kane becoming a more of a main character and we get to see things more from his view - his feelings, anxieties and his decisions all shape him into a great character and focal point for a portion of this book. We also see Danica being thrown in at the deep end of things as she struggles to [...]

Overall, I like the book. It's fun to read, and the characters keep growing. I like the writing, but I don't like the repetitions. Every room has blood-stained walls (or carpets, or floor, or anything), the characters taste steel in the air(and other stuff, but steel is predominant), the puss is oozing out of the wounds every 5 pages or so. Kane remembered Ekko, as Cross did Snow, in exactly the same way for about 10 times (I may be exaggerating, but you get the picture). I get their suffering a [...]

it' a fantastic read. the 4th book of the series continues to build up the characters and is not afraid to kill off a major character to advance the plot line. Overall a wonderful continuation of the series. Cant wait to read the next one.

Steven Montano has created an incredible world in his Blood Skies books and populated it with complex, heroic, tragic and unepectedly funny characters. Crow of Ash has been my favorite in the series thus far. That being said, it broke my heart.

We rejoin Danica, Kane, Ronan and Maur who are in Blacksand, and trying to find a way to save Cross. Cross is trapped in he Whisperlands; a dark realm controlled by the Shadow Lords.Crown Of Ash reveals a little more of Danica's history. Not only does Danica get to deal with everything that stands between the group and Cross, she also has The Revengers tracking her too. After being attacked by a Murderwraith she is forced into using her spirit, but this allows The Revengers to lock onto her and [...]
