Burning Tower (Benjamin Ashwood #5) by AC Cobble

Burning Tower, Benjamin Ashwood.jpgI received an advanced copy of the book in exchange for my review.

I have enjoyed the Benjamin Ashwood series in the past, but usually I listen to it on Audible. So reading the book without the benefit of a dramatized performance by Eric Michael Summerer (who narrated the first four books) was a little odd. I missed his performance.

Anyway, initially, I thought the Burning Tower was just “okay”; things seemed a little slow. However, the climax made it all worth it. I think out of all 5 books, the climax was my favorite scene. It was well-worth the wait.

I hope you enjoy reading it.

P.S. As with other Benjamin Ashwood books, there are some sex-scenes. Believe it or not, I think there were fewer in this book, then in others. I did skim over them; what I skimmed didn’t seem too terribly graphic, but as I’ve said before, I don’t like sex in books, so I tend to skip those scenes.


Empty Horizon by A.C. Cobble

Empty HorizonUpdate (June 2018): I did finish the book. While the style of writing is simpler than other books I’ve read, I did manage to enjoy the story. There were some crude parts, and there were a couple of violent scenes, but in the end, I did end up enjoying it.

(March 2018) Empty Horizon is the fourth book in the Benjamin Ashwood series by A.C. Cobble.

I was looking forward to this book, but since starting it, I have been disappointed. The style of writing seems juvenile and simple, not the same quality of writing that I’m used to reading. In addition, it is more crude than the previous three. As much as I want to know what happens to the characters, I probably won’t finish the book because it simply isn’t keeping my interest and I don’t appreciate the increased crudeness.
