Jason Brant has made us wait for the third book in the Asher Benson series. And if you’re going to pull a George R.R. Martin and make your fans wait this long for a book, it damn well better be worth it. Well, Jason Brant has pulled it off. Asher’s War has to be the best in the series…so far.

Every author has their strength. Jason Brant writes dialogue like it’s nobody’s business. The banter between Asher, Nami and Andrew has to be some of the best ever written. He could write a story about the t

I read the first book in this series, Ash, but haven’t read the second (or the short story) yet. That didn’t mar my enjoyment of this—the third book—at all! The author sprinkles enough background throughout the story that the reader always understands what went before—and I have to admit, it’s whetted my appetite for the previous stories.

Asher Benson is a wonderful hero—big, strong, telepathic, telekinetic, a beer-drinker, and a good guy. He’s part of a clandestine group nicknamed The Psych Ward

The main character is an arsehole... actually pretty much everyone is an arsehole, to some degree, in this book.
It took a little while to get properly started which is one of the reasons I only gave it 4 stars. With Asher, I've become used to immediate ass-kickings and pray-to-whatever-deity-you-believe-in situations with him making stupid jokes the entire time, so when the (shit hits the fan) fighting didn't start straight away, I was a tad disappointed.

I think a couple less comments about how

Jason Brant's Asher Benson series has been, since book 1, an epic and hilarious journey told through the point of view of Ash; a smart mouthed telepath with a dependency on drinking and sarcasm.

In book three, we get a whole new take on Ash's mission to make the world a better place. In the past two books we've seen some dark things, but always on the outside. In Asher's War we see the darkness reverse and slam directly into Ash himself. Tortured emotionally and physically, he is pushed to near i

The third and final instalment of Asher Benson and unfortunately the worst of the trilogy however its not bad just that what's gone before is far superior..
After the events of Madness book 2 Asher and his bunch of misfits are on the hunt for Smith and the man in black, after an explosive start on the DC subway the book struggles to live up to the start and crawls to the finish, we have some odd splattering's of action here and there but I just felt the book went out on a whimper and wasn't reall

Very nice end to this trilogy.

My first thought after finishing the book was "oh man, I hope there are more stories coming!" The ending certainly left a few details unresolved. So, I guess time will tell.

Ash Benson and a newly recruited crew are thrown together and are chasing after the elusive Smith once again. The thing about these stories is that they are so vivid that they would be great candidates for adaptation to movies. That would be a lot of fun if done right.

So glad to see the end of Smith in this book. I am guessing that Ash and Drew have not seen the last of the man in the black suit. It would be nice if Ash could move on and have a life besides being a drunk. Yet he is very good at going after the bad guys and bring them to justice. It was terrible to read what Smith did to Jamie Walsh. That was so sad.

Another stonking good novel! I really like Ash and his team mates. I wasn't so sure about the newbies, but they're pulling their weight alright! Nami is still my favourite potty mouth, and I was disappointed to find that I'd finished the book! There must be a book 4 because this one was left open ended. Who is this new friend of Smith's? What has happened to Ashley's abilities? Will Ash find love? Come on Jason! Put us out of our misery!! ...more

Engaging and hilarious

Reading this book has been a kick, part comedy, all thriller. It’s easy to root for the characters. Ash and Drew and all the others are engaging heroes with an interesting story, can’t wait for the movie version!

Fast Wild Bizzarre

Brant keeps delivering a wild, crazy, bizzarre set of events ....that come crashing down with a short period of time. You enjoy the reading but there could be more meat and length to the bone you are knawing on. It is a very interesting and you want more now.

I enjoyed this series and look forward to the sequel. Just need to say that the editing needs a lot of work. There were quite a few errors.

Jason Brant is one of my favorite authors. His west of Hell series is pure brilliance, and his Hunger series is one of my top three Zombie series.

I've also enjoyed the first two Asher Benson books.

But this one... The writing is good, as always. The action is fast-paced and clear. The world is populated with interesting characters; the author even manages to give personality to some of the special forces bad-asses that are so cookie-cutter in other novels.

But here's the rub: the main character i

Enjoyed it very much. Well written with enough twists and turns to keep you engaged!

I would definitely read more of this series.
Another Jack Reacher in the making. He needs to tone down the hero's ego a little.

I've been blown away, yet again!

I could not put this book down! Like all previous books, it was action packed from beginning to end. It left me wanting more.

Ash himself thinks he's a messed up character to make into a hero but, despite his obvious flaws, he is one of my favourite protagonists of all time. People may think his vulgar, egotistical, crazy traits would be off putting, but me? I love it! He's the right mix of all three and can make you laugh or cry depending on what's happening. Hi

Jason Brant has hit another home run with the 3rd installment of the Asher Benson series. It is full of twists and turns as him and his new team hunt down Smith. I think my favorite new recruit of the group was Bree, but Nami is my favorite even with her potty mouth. This book is as much action packed as the other 2 books in this series. I highly recommend this book and the other two.

3.5, like the others. I liked how it ended with the main antogonist meeting his sticky end and the protagonists surviving, with Ash being relatively functional.
I do suspect that there may be another in the series due to another antagonist being on the loose still. I may be wrong however.

Awesome read. I have been enjoying the Asher Benson series since the onset. This is another installment that does not disappoint. I like that Brant left it open for subsequent tales in the series, and I hope that he follows through with that inferred promise soon. Well done.
