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.

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.

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.

Great story

I really enjoyed this well written story. It's not my usual read but it's from both a favorite author and a favorite narrator so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm so glad I did.
I was drawn into the lives and the story of these guys. The journey they are undertaking together is immense and dangerous.
I really liked the way they were bought to life with the narration. He seemed to capture them well with his voice.
I look forward to the next one in the series and seeing how the guys manage the coming challenges.

Not your typical book by...

Nora Phoenix but I still really liked it. I normally hate cliffhangers, but this story kept me so engaged I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I loved the narration and the dimensions he brought to all of the characters.

Amazing!

A little out of the ordinary for this author, but excellent none the less. she really fleshes out the characters and makes you root for them as they face the world. While this is the first in the trilogy and it ends with the story unfinished, it does not end on a cliffhanger, which I appreciate. The narrator does a great job distinguishing the 3 men's voices, and brings the story to life. I would recommend anyone on the fence take a chance on this one.

Wow!!

Nora Phoenix is a pretty new to me author.
I’ve read a few books in her Ballsy Boys series and really enjoyed.
Haven’t done the audio of those yet!
This series is one I’m really excited about!
I didn’t read the book but jumped right into the audio.
The narrator Kenneth Obi is new to me as well.
The beginning was a little shaky but as the story went on I began to really enjoy his voices for the characters, especially Mac.
I love the idea of an alien takeover as I’ve been watching recent episodes of X Files.
Everything about the setting of the story and the idea of the US divided is pretty cool too!
I can’t wait to dive into the next one.
I see the second book is out but I think I’ll wait for the audio as I enjoyed the narrator’s interpretation.

Intense

I love this new series. With their world on fire and under siege by aliens Tan, Austin ans Mach have to find a way to stay alive. This book had me on the edge of my seat. It ends in a cliffhanger and I can't wait to see what happens to them.
Narrator Kenneth Obi does a wonderful job in bringing these characters to life.

Survival and Love

Austin, Tan, and Mack are three young men sentence to a “reintegration” camp that’s supposed to “cure” homosexuality. This camp is nothing more than a glorified prison where atrocious acts are committed upon the imprisoned young men. Then aliens suddenly attack the Earth and begin a mass genocide of the human race. During this chaos, Austin, Tan and Mack escape and what begins as an alliance in order to stay alive transforms into something more, something pure and loving. The young men must rely on their wits and each other to survive not only the aliens and other humans, but also the environment and shortage of food.

I normally don’t like dystopian books, but I adored Ignite. I think what makes it so enjoyable is how Nora Phoenix never allows us to give up hope. These young men are survivors and they will survive somehow. The relationship between all three of them is a complex and dynamic thing that takes it time to bloom, but it’s so satisfying to see. I can feel the love and trust they have for each other through the pages. Plus the plot just sucked me into the story and I didn’t want to stop reading. The world building was fantastic and complicated, but still easy to understand.

Kenneth Obi did the narration for the audiobook and it was wonderful. He had to voice three young men and give them each a unique voice. I think he got their personalities down wonderfully, and the narration became a performance. I was on the edge of my seat listening to this audiobook.

Both the book and the audiobook receive a solid 5 star rating from me. I can’t wait for the entire series to be out.

3 young men learning to survive and love

The United States has split into three, the Conservative United States, being gay will get you sent to a camp. Tan has been there since being found in a Gay bar 3 yrs ago, Austin 8 months and his father inprisoned as he knew Austin was gay and didn't hand him in to the authorities. Mack has just arrived at Camp.
A massive meteor shower creates complete chaos at the camp, and they all are going to escape. Austin finds Tan and they are grabbing supplies to leave when they meet Mack, who seems to know about survival so the 3 leave together. We then find out the meteors were spiderbots sent to kill all humans, before aliens land.
This is about 3 young men trying to survive and slowly learning to have feelings for each other, can't wait to continue the series.
Kenneth Obi brings this book alive. Brilliantly done
