  • It s just the devil s share When life evens itself out and every bad guy gets what s coming to em it s one of the few balancing things life really offers Gabriel ChurchGabriel Church has done a bad, bad thing and normally that doesn t bother him too much But everything changed when he met Christian Maxwell Chris became his unholy grail The thing he soug It s just the devil s share When life evens itself out and every bad guy gets what s coming to em it s one of the few balancing things life really offers Gabriel ChurchGabriel Church has done a bad, bad thing and normally that doesn t bother him too much But everything changed when he met Christian Maxwell Chris became his unholy grail The thing he sought than any other treasure, yet still a priceless pearl beyond his reach Nothing he does seems to solidify any prospect of them being able to remain together, to live that happily ever after story Even if he were to make a promise to stop his killing in the name of God, it would still only be a salty futility to wet and tempt his lips.Christian Maxwell discovered a damaged soul inside Church, with a goodness plumbed somewhere below the visible surface He saw pain shadowing his killer like some trailing footprint left moist in the sand But he failed to recognize each victim, or the costs of every action the fugitive took for granted He simply pushed those faceless victims to the dark recesses of his mind, hiding them from plain view as if they were discarded things, recollections intentionally forgotten.The one thing Church knows with certainty is the writer is the only person who really knows him, and the only man other than himself who possibly understands where they are both headed But life is about to get twisted and dangerous It begins with a backwards Deputy Sheriff and that same ill fated chance that always prevented him from slowing down his pace or finding a peaceful place to rest with Chris Maxwell by his side.

    One thought on “Ash and Cinders”

    1. The last book in the Gabriel Church Tale series and we’re once again on the run with our enigmatic serial killer. My goodness how I have waited for this third and final book to see how everything would play out. Rodd Clark has delivered a delicious dark tale that plays with the psyche of the reader letting you get behind the mind of a serial killer.This was for me the whole attraction of these three books, to go where I normally wouldn’t dare or would want to. Gabriel is on the run and the q [...]

    2. It doesn’t seem to matter who you are, at some point, if you are around Gabriel Church for any length of time, you are destined to offer him favor.For Christian Maxwell, who is now completely invested in Gabe and ready and willing to uproot his entire life to be with the blue-eyed devil, at the first sign of acquiesce, that moment can’t come soon enough. He never expected to be so consumed by another human being as he is by Gabe—but he is—and I don’t think he realizes the extent of how [...]

    3. This was truly one of the best dramatic and heartclenching series I have ever read. Rodd Clark did a brilliant job in writing this incredible story that will always be remembered. The story line in this 3rd novel of the series was extremely strong in its detail and magnitude as wa the first two. The characters continue to be very well developed and amazing. I highly recommend this series to all. As a Serial killer, Gabe, continues on his winding down journey, his love for his journalist love, Ch [...]

    4. Ok, I always having trouble rating this series.I know its a book and therefore made up of words but I feel that there are a whole lot of extra ones where there really doesn't need to be. At around 250 pages there wasn't really a lot of things happening.Gabe is still on the run having left Chris back in Seattle. He arrives in a small Northern California town of Sonora. Eventually he hooks up with a police officer for a night of sex. - Problem right there. He is with Chris!There were a couple of t [...]

    5. I deeply admire the writer Rodd Clark, for his unique style and for his devotion to a trilogy and a central character that few may find palatable. It takes guts to be great.Clark’s third dark thriller lives up to the standards already set in RUBBLE AND THE WRECKAGE and TORN AND FRAYED. Briefly, a remorseless killer who’s on the run finally becomes trapped. The god whom he’d believed in has deserted him. The “white-lighters,” his way of seeing his former victims through a spiritual pris [...]

    6. This is the final installment in the Gabriel Church serial killer series. Much of the first third of this story focuses on the thoughts of the main characters and their recollections of events that occurred previously and thus act as a sort of recap while the reader is made aware of Gabe's and Christian’s current positions. The lovers are apart again because of Gabe’s murderous actions to protect Christian at the end of the previous story and it appears the CID special agent is getting close [...]

    7. As I expected of the author, he ends the series with artful resolution. No sickly sweet or overly-dramatic ending here. Just great writing through and through.

    8. Ash and Cinders is the third and final book in the Gabriel Church Trilogy, and I LOVED IT!Rodd Clark has such a wonderful way with words that he causes his readers to be at least sympathetic to and even fall for the criminal Gabriel Church in this series of books. Church seems to have started out believing he was on a mission from "God" to help the world by taking out some of the evil doers.Church manages to save some very helpless people along the way and in this final book of the trilogy it se [...]

    9. Intense and nail bittingThis author has a way of you becoming a part of the characters and not wanting to let go. Chris and Gabriel are no different. No matter how twisted these two are, you are pulling for them all the way through. I love the way this author has me rooting for the killer no matter how warped that seems. I love this authors crime stories and to add the M/M to it just makes me a very happy reader.
