Publisher's Summary

In a world that’s burning, where it’s every man for himself, all they can do to survive is hold on to each other....

A slow burn MMM romance set in a dystopian world. The first book in an exciting trilogy!

The world has changed. Tan has survived three years in a reintegration camp he was sent to for being gay, but he's at the limit of what he can endure, even with the help of his best friend, Austin.

When a massive meteor shower creates chaos at the camp, Austin and Tan take the chance to escape. They’re joined by Mack, a newbie at camp who is an expert in survival but knows nothing about love...or anything else.

But when they discover human-like aliens have landed on Earth with war on their agenda, their escape becomes a hell of a lot more dangerous. They grow close, but without power and food and no safe place to stay, how will they survive? Where can they find freedom...and love?

While the world around them burns, all they have are each other.

Ignite is the first book in the suspenseful Ignite trilogy, a slow burn MMM romance set in an alternative world. The first book ends in a cliffhanger, but the series will end with a HEA.

Fantastic beginning

When I first read this book, I loved how it was like a movie in my head. The narration just added another dimension. I enjoyed that relationship between the characters wasn’t rushed. Looking forward to where they go from here.

A good beginning of a dystopian series

This says it is a book one and it is very good, but I will admit I wanted a bit more information about why Austin, Mack and Tan were in this camp and what kind of camp it was. I would also liked to have know a bit more about the Civil war that is mentioned as well but having said that, the story is quite good. I liked the narration and as usual Kenneth Obi gives each character a distinctive voice and brings lots of emotion to the story. I don’t usually read dystopian or Sci-fi but I quite enjoyed this story and am waiting for the next!

An excellent book to listen to

This book has a very good plot and the narrator is pleasant to listen to. I can’t wait for the next book to be available and hear what happens next.

Surprisingly engaging

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. I was thrown from the start but totally captivated. I like that each character has a unique perspective and voice. That they all bring something to the table. They’re all so naïve, and I’m thoroughly invested in where the story is going to go.

Very interesting

Even though I don’t really like sci-fi books and movies, I still decided to give this one a try since I’ve read all other books by Nora Phoenix and greatly enjoyed, if not absolutely loved them. I’ve got to admit that this is the first book in this genre that I more than liked, and want to find out what happens next. It’s well written, has interesting world building, and likable - with the exception of a few- characters. I especially like how the main characters’ relationship develops throughout the book. All three are so different from one another and jet fit so well together. Kenneth Obi as usual did a fantastic job. All the characters have their own voice, making it easy to tell who is talking, and even the emotions are easy to pick up on in their voices. This audiobook is practically like watching a movie and I can’t wait to start in on the continuation.

Awesome start

Ignite is book 1 in the Ignite series by Nora Phoenix and narrated by Kenneth Obi. This was my first dystopian book, so I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it. However, I should have known that the combination of Nora Phoenix and Kenneth Obi would sell me on a new genre. This book has all of the things I have come to love from Nora Phoenix: great dialogue + real chemistry between the characters + great plot, plus MMM (my personal favorite and Mack, Tan and Austin are all equally yummy). Kenneth Obi just makes it that much sweeter. His ability to give each character a distinct voice and his recall ability of each of them, elevates the story and makes it feel like a production. I can’t wait to start book 2.

Not My Usual Type of Book but I Enjoyed It

I am not a big fan of dystopian romance with alien invaders, but I enjoyed this book very much. This first book in the series set a good foundation and world building for the story to continue. I liked all three main characters, each brings something special to their journey and I am very interested to find out more about each of their story. Narrator did a great job with all the characters and the story. I can't wait to listen to the next book in this trilogy.

Brilliant!

I think the author did a great job building this dystopian world. It’s scary and interesting and I can’t wait to find out more and see how the story continues. The three main characters are wonderful and they work really really well together. I enjoyed every single word. The narration was also fantastic, I liked all the voices for the three main characters but Mack’s was my favorite.

Glad I gave it another chance...

I tried this one when I first bought it and within a few minutes I just felt like I wasn't going to enjoy it. It felt a little far-fetched. There was an act of extreme violence at a camp the main characters were, and I just thought it was a little extreme, and unlikely. I won't go into detail because I don't want to spoil it, although it was only really a minor detail. However, I decided to give it another shot a few weeks later, and it's not half bad. It's a good idea. I think the author is still new to writing, which might explain a few of the problems I had with the actions and events in the story. It felt a little naive in parts and too fluid. Like, there doesn't seem to be any second guessing between the characters. They click a little too well. And their plans seem to go ahead a little too well, even when they face an unexpected blip in their plans. I never felt like they were facing any real danger, despite everything happening in their lives. This might have also had a younger audience than me in mind. I've read some serious fics, horror, thrillers and suspense, so I am used to characters facing some real horrors. I think maybe this story was written for people in their mid to late teen years, With those criticisms aside, I enjoyed it enough to continue the series. Just don't expect anything spectacular. But it's a fun read, and it's nice to find a LGBTQ fic without it being primarily about them being queer.

Fast Moving, Kenneth Obi Does a Fantastic Job!

Okay that was seriously fun! I'm very glad I've got the second one already loaded and ready to go. I'm doing the audio version, performed by Kenneth Obi. He's doing a great job with these guys - the dialogue is fast moving, and there's a lot of banter. Mr. Obi has a distinct voice for each character and their personalities really come through. If you're going to do this series, do it in audio. I hope I won't be waiting long for the third one to be published.

Exciting

I loved both the ebook and audiobook of Ignite and finished the story in just over 24 hours. Set in an alternate world with many parallels to our own, the author has incorporated several of today's issues into this novel. Despite the seriousness at times, this is an exciting read, and this is carried forward into the narration by Kenneth Obi. As usual, I found voices matched the personalities of the three main characters perfectly. Unusually, I didn't have a real favourite. Sometimes, it was sweet Tan who appears to be the weakest but has so many (surprising) strengths. Then it was Austin who seems to be a natural leader, but has worries and insecurities that allow a softer side to peep through. And innocent Mack who can't be6he has feelings for 2 men and whose survivalist background is so useful. All are beautifully written and brought to life. Ignite is an excellent introduction to the series of 3 books and it says everything when I went straight into the second book. 5 stars all round.

Start of a series

In a dystopic world, three guys escape from a conversion camp, finding out the world is under an ailian attack. They fight to survive and to find there dynamics. This is not a stand alone. I already started with part two. I love Nora’s language and Kenneth’s voice. They make a great team making audio books.
