Summary

Elinor is an Extraordinary and the only one in England capable of wielding fire in over 100 years. As an Extraordinary she is respected and feared, but to her father she represents power and prestige for himself. Mr. Pembroke, having spent his life studying magic, is determined to control Elinor and her talent by forcing her to marry whom he chooses, a marriage that will produce even more powerful offspring. Trapped between the choices of a loveless marriage and living penniless and dependent on her parents, Elinor takes a third path: She defies tradition and society to join the Royal Navy.
Assigned to serve under Captain Miles Ramsay aboard the frigate Athena, she turns her fiery talent on England's enemies, French privateers, and vicious pirates preying on English ships in the Caribbean. At first feared by her shipmates, a growing number of victories make her truly part of Athena's crew and bring her joy in her fire. But as her power grows and changes in unexpected ways, Elinor's ability to control it is challenged. She may have the power to destroy her enemies utterly - but could it be at the cost of her own life?

ABSOLUTELY AWFUL MONOTONOUS NARRATION

Unbelievable Cat Gould makes a living narrating audiobooks. Who is it auditions this person and gives her work. This woman cannot read out loud, her way of speaking is monotonous with no variation at all.
I cannot listen to this. Absolutely awful.

I liked the story but not the narrator

It's a nice story, the characters are interesting and the plot makes sense, but I had trouble enjoying the book because of the narrator. Her reading style is very stiff and all the characters seems unnatural and very same-same in her way of telling the story. I will not purchase any more audio books narrated by Cat Gould, although I will buy future publications from the author, Melissa McShane.

Amazing story and narration!

i absolutely loved this story! The author and narrator were both new to me and ao i did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised! I love historical romances and this had an aspect of paranormal in the story with Elinor discovering her talent and embarking on her adventure. it is a clean romance and is a slow burn for them discovering their love bit it was absolutely perfect for the story. I wish this was a series so I could read more about it. Cat Gould as the narrator just brought the story to life. she was amazing with all the male and female voices and i loved her accent used for the narration! i definitely recommend getting this along with the audio!!!!

Unexpected Plot

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely. I've gotten so little done because of it.

Any additional comments?

I read/listen to a _lot_ of 'strong female paranormal romanceish' books. So many that I often find plots to be predictable. This book was a breath of fresh air. There are, of course, a few obvious tropes, but there were as many if not more exciting twists and turns.
The lead female didn't suddenly become helpless when encountered with a strong male, if anything they support and encourage each other in a sold friendship. Great characters, great story. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there will be another soon.
