My issue with the final (hopefully) instalment, is believability. How many more gay romances can one sheep station have? The chances that the two preteen boys in book one, would grow up gay and in love by book four, seem pretty remote to me. Fantastic twists of fate aside, the writing and narration are as good as the first. You'd be better served wrapping up your Lang Downs series at the third book in my opinion. On the plus side, the narrator finally gets "Dry-as-a-bone" right. Bye bye "drizza-bone".

The Langs Down Series just gets better and better. This is book 4 and though each book has new characters it does focus on a recurring theme and characters and is probably best read in order. Trust me it is worth the read.
Conquer the flames is about Thorne an ex-military man that has been wounded and retired working as a firefighter. He is sent to warn and access the help needed on the Lang Downs Station and finds himself drawn to the men, the story behind them and the land. He hasn't felt welcomed or found a home since he was eighteen and joined the military and is surprised he is welcomed here especially with his PSTD.
This is Ian's story. He is one of the original characters, a crew boss and Niel's best friend. Until now I wasn't sure of his orientation. ( well, I kinda was since I had snuck peeks at all the blurbs...so I knew his story was coming up). I absolutely fell in love with Ian. His story is quite sad and I love a good survivor story and man is his good.
William James does a fabulous job narrating this series. He brings each character to life, and can really add the excitement to the already fabulous story. He makes the sex scenes breathtaking as well.
If you like stories set in Australia, sheep stations, Jackaroo, Firefighters, military men, lots of angst, and a very sweet romance this one is fabulous.
