Book two of the Hathor Legacy series
On the planet, Hathor, an old threat re-emerges that may destroy the fragile alliance between the Guardians and Novacorp. When Nadira is called to investigate a rash of fires throughout the city, she discovers the Deshtu, another group with PSI powers who have been purposely kept in the shadows.
Working to uncover the source of the fires, Nadira learns the brutal truth about the origin of the Guardians. The Guardian Elders have plans to make Nadira more powerful, and she may be forced to sever her psychic connection to Jonathan Keel.
When an unexpected ally gives Jonathan information about the Deshtu that connects them to the fires, he becomes a convenient scapegoat for the opposing factions. Nadira puts her life on the line to solve the crime, while the Elders make their move to remove Jonathan from her life forever.
As time runs out, the Guardians prepare for a clash with Novacorp that could plunge the planet into chaos, and a final betrayal forces Nadira to risk everything to save herself and Hathor.

"... to the edge of your ability."
This is an intriguing story and one which I wish I had read rather than heard as it is just possible that I would have found the written word more palatable. This was not a book for me, however. I found the main protagonist shallow, silly and, frankly, annoying, not at all the feisty rebel she was constantly said to be. If she was the most talented on the planet there seems little hope for it's future. Plus there was far too much 'nipple tweaking', though, mercifully, such passages were fairly brief. Perhaps it was this which had turned her relatively mindless.
The narrator, Kirstin James, has a lovely voice and makes a pretty good attempt at even male voices, though some of her females were excruciatingly twee. Unfortunately, she really melded into the character of Nadira and, as the story continued, Ms James's reading became, to my ear, increasingly breathless and saccarin sweet. Turning the speed to 1.25 helped initially, but not for long. Which influenced which? Was it the narration which made me find this book hard to finish or the character forging the voice of the narrator? I don't know.
My thanks to the right's holder for the gift of this book, sent to me via Audiobook Boom. Even though I did not personally enjoy Hathor Legacy: Burn,, it still would probably resonate with a very young adult audience as the overall idea is good and the concept of having to chose between love and obligation is an attractive one.
