Publisher's Summary

Captain Sir Sheridan Drake is no knight in shining armor, even if he happens to be famous for his heroism. An exiled princess with revolutionary ideas is just a convenient opportunity to get himself out of debt. Princess Olympia isn't precisely fairy-tale royalty herself; she's plump and a little shy, and desperate to do something of importance in the world. But though their meeting begins with her hopeless hero worship, a harrowing journey to the bleak edge of the world will transform them both, plunging Olympia into the darkest depths of Sheridan's battered warrior's heart and awakening demons she could never imagine in her dreams of glory.

Seize The Fire!!

Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I love Laura Kinsale's writing and Nicholas Boulton's narration. The perfect combination!

Like LK's other books, 'Seize the Fire' is written with depth and dimension. The hero, Sheridan, is filled with many layers of flaws which I found irresistible. He struggles with nightmares, past tortures, fears, and even hero worship that molds him into a man of mystery and turbulence. The heroine, Princess Olympia, a somewhat spoiled young woman who is forced to learn by hardship. Together they travel on a journey of many twists and turns that proves to be the ultimate adventure of knowledge and love.

Its worth a credit if you enjoy well written - thought provoking - in-depth stories with substance and no fluff. :-)

An entertaining, adventurous, and meaningful story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! This was a great book. I haven't been this hooked into a story for a really long time. There was so much angst, action, romance, great sex, amazingly developed characters, chemistry.. I could go on and on. Wonderful story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Seize the Fire?

There are a lot of really memorable moments in this novel.. I'd say the scene that stuck out most in my mind was an ambush at sea, because I feel like it pushed Olympia's character to a whole new level of understanding and growth. It was a heart wrenching and tragic way to grow, but after the ambush I feel like she was able to connect with Sheridan on a deeper level. I don't want to share more cause I don't want to reveal anything, but it was a very memorable scene.

Have you listened to any of Nicholas Boulton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I've listened to many of Kinsale's other novels that he's narrated. This is right up there to what I expect from such a talented narrator. He has the ability to suck you into the story so much you don't even realize you're listening to a narration.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The last scene of the novel was very moving.

Any additional comments?

Definitely credit worthy! I was nervous because I usually don't listen to stories longer than 12 hours, I get bored with the fluff really long novels tend to have. This has zero fluff. Everything relates to moving the story forward, so it keeps you really engaged and reads fast.
