It is very rare that I enjoy a sequel more then I enjoy the first book but this one blew me away and left me with so many questions. When is the next book coming? I MUST KNOW THE ANSWERS!!!
Nine months can change a lot in a persons life and the time can also make one feel safe again after going through something that strains so much on the mind and body. But what would you do if nine months later it started again?
Zero Balance brings out the darkness to a whole new depth. You find yourself sinking deeper and deeper into the minds of the characters and seeing just how far they are willing to go to make it all end. To finally bring it over.
Ashley is a talented writer that can and will have you turning each page with adrenaline and anticipation for what is to be around the next corner. I recommend you add this to your shelf. You won't be disappointed.

I can't stop thinking about this book!
ZERO BALANCE is book two in the Eviscerating the Snake series. I highly recommend that you read book one, ACCOUNTABLE TO NONE, first, so you don't miss a thing.
I LOVED THIS BOOK! Often times a reader will pick up the second book in a series to be sorely disappointed because they enjoyed the first book so much. That is not the case with ZERO BALANCE by ASHLEY FONTAINNE. I'm going to try to write this review without giving too much of the story away. That's going to be tough, though, because I could talk about ZERO BALANCE for hours!
The story picks up one week prior to Olin's trial. Audra is starting to feel guilty about taking vengeance out on all the partners instead of focusing on Olin. Little does she know that she's awakened the sleeping psycho in the remaining partners at the accounting firm and they're out to get a little justice of their own. And then there's Piper, the unexpected villain.
When an author deals with a psychotic personality, it is sometimes difficult for the reader to get too close to that character. Through Ms. Fontainne's writing, we, as normal, well adjusted people, are taken into the mind of a truly demented mentally ill woman. This was done flawlessly through Ms. Fontainne's writing each chapter in ZERO BALANCE through the eyes of a specific character. For a short time, we, as readers, are thrown into a truly twisted mindset. I must say, I was very uncomfortable being there, but I loved the fact that the author was able to make me understand the depths of Piper's anger and excitement at taking another life through her mental illness.
If you ask me, ZERO BALANCE can't be pigeonholed into one specific genre. This is a suspense, thriller, dark fearsome horror story with a little romance thrown in. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE THIRD IN THE SERIES COMES OUT!

Sometimes revenge and being blinded by love can send one over the edge. That is what has happened to Piper, a former CPA who lost her loose grip on sanity. She finds out her husband is gay, the subject of her desires doesn’t want her and commits suicide when scandal threatens to break loose. The man she had an affair with rejects her and is now doing time for previous crimes. Yet poor misguided Piper still envisions a future with Olin Kemper and will do anything to set him free especially murder.
Once again we are drawn in to the world of Winscott and Associates. With Audra Tanner at the head the company is trying to recover from the loss of revenue, brought on by more scandal. Ashley Fontainne hasn’t stopped examining the depths some people go to in order to seek revenge. Murder after murder is committed to this end and the bodies pile up quickly. Zero Balance is another thrilling chapter that is a roller coaster ride of emotion and suspense. We root for the heroes, curse the villains and mourn the losses. I give this book another five gold stars.

It's been a very long time since I actually cussed out an author because the book just....stopped. And stopped when the book is bringing you back up to another peak.
We met Audra and the team at Winscott; accounting firm in Phoenix - in Ashley's first book Accountable to None. Zero Balance is the next phase in the trilogy. The unraveling and telling of the downfall of revenge. There is a single line in the book that describes it, the actions from Accountable to None are like a drop in a pond that the far reaching ripples are turning into a tidal wave engulfing Audra.
The style this book is written in took a minute to get used to - but once I had a handle on it I could not put the damn thing down. Accountable to None was the cause, Zero Balance is the effect... I cannot wait for the third book to come out.
Ashley....for the love of Pete, write faster. :)
