Conquer the Flames | [Ariel Tachna]

Conquer the Flames

Thorne Lachlan knows a thing or two about getting himself safely out of a blaze. For years he fought in the world's hot spots, a Commando with the Australian Army. Now, retired, he fights flames for the Royal Fire Service. When a grassfire brings him to Lang Downs, the next sheep station in danger, Thorne meets Ian Duncan and sparks fly that neither man can put out. But both men have ghosts from the past that stand in the way of moving beyond mutual attraction.

Publisher's Summary

Thorne Lachlan knows a thing or two about getting himself safely out of a blaze. For years he fought in the world's hot spots, a commando with the Australian Army. Now, retired, he fights flames for the Royal Fire Service. When a grassfire brings him to Lang Downs, the next sheep station in danger, Thorne meets Ian Duncan and sparks fly that neither man can put out. But both men have ghosts from the past that stand in the way of moving beyond mutual attraction.

While Thorne longs for the home he could share with Ian at Lang Downs, he fears his own instability might make him a danger to others. And Ian's always believed that the foster care nightmare he escaped before coming to Lang Downs would make any relationship impossible. Trust doesn't come easily to Thorne or Ian until the fire's aftermath forces them to see past the scars keeping them both from healing.

    "A Wonderful Story with Exquisite Narration"
    Would you listen to Conquer the Flames again? Why?

    Yes, absolutely, and I intend to after I have listened to the previous books in the Langs Down series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conquer the Flames?

    When Thorne rescues Ian from the wildfire. Another was when Ian rescued Thorne from the canteen.


    What does William James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. James is a truly gifted narrator who was able to switch from an American accent to a rich and spot on Australian accent and making it sound easy to do! It almost makes me wonderful if he isn't Australian. He was able to voice each character uniquely, so much so that I didn't need the reminders of who was speaking.


    Who was the most memorable character of Conquer the Flames and why?

    I won't spell this correctly, but it was the cook, Cummi. A man of few words who made a huge impact on everyone's life at the station.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm off to buy the rest of the audiobooks in the series!

    "Great 4th Installment"

    I think this was my favorite of the series so far, although I did really like the 1st book, Inherit the Sky. All the previous couples make an appearance in this book, but this book is much darker than the previous books. The author delves into some abuse and PTSD issues and I think handles them very well. The narrator continues to do a great job and I hope there is another sequel soon. Although this book is part of the series, I'd say you have to read the 1st book, but not book 2 or 3 to enjoy this one. I liked all the books and each couple kind of stands on their own, but Caine and Macklin are in all the books. Worth a credit.
