Publisher's Summary

Re-release of 2009 novella - Fire cost Jared Kenny his home and all his memories of the man he'd loved for over half his life. But it also brought him firefighter Adam Collins and the purest blue eyes Jared had ever seen.

Despite the best efforts of his department, Adam had to watch with Jared while Jared's house burned to the ground. Something about the man touched Adam and made him want to follow up and protect him. Later, when the two of them gave in to their passion, it burnt and bared them both.

So Jared ran...from Adam, from his past, and from everything their future together could hold. He tried to start a new life, taking only his newfound passion for glass and his obsession for a finding a particular shade of blue, the blue of the heart of a flame. It took a near-tragedy to teach him that the blue he sought, he'd had all along...in his firefighter's eyes.

Okay Story; Great Narration

I never understood Adam's attraction to Jarod, much less his abiding love for the man. Another negative aspect would be how sometimes the story seemed to fly by and other times it seemed to drag on too long, which is quite a feat considering it's only 3 hours long. Aside from all of that, it was a fairly entertaining story with a unique storyline.

Shannon Gunn is one of my favorite voice actors, although I wasn't a huge fan of his choices here. Jarod came across as terribly pretentious (which was actually a fair portrayal of his character, TBH), and Adam was a little too nasal for my liking, but I think that may have been Shannon's way of conveying Adam's youth. His portrayal of Adam's sister was spot on. I kept forgetting that I was listening to the same person and it wasn't a female narrator portraying Anna.

One of my fave Z.A. Story.

This is a great story but not a great Narration. Shannon Gunn is to OTT for this type of story. It needed a softer touch.

It was a nice book, I had a good time with it

Where does Blue Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the middle, It was very good, memorable enough. Perhaps not the best, but it's also very far for being the worst. I had a good time with it

Would you recommend Blue Fire to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes. I had a good time woth it, The story is sort of sad, but the narrator did a great job transmitting the emotions.

What about Shannon Gunn’s performance did you like?

Yes, a great job in the protray of emotion. Very appropiate and I enjoyed how nice his diction was. I have hard time with some audiobooks trying to keep track of the story becoause english is not my main lenguaje, but I didn't had any problem with his narration.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I really can't answer that question.Mostly for lack if imagination :(

Any additional comments?

About the narration, it was very good. It had a nice pace and one of the things I appreciate the most is a good diction that make it easy to understand. I don’t generally listen to audiobooks because I get lost in the translation sometimes, most of audiobooks are narrated in English and I speak Spanish, it always requires extra attention for me to keep track on the story, but this time it was easy enough.
