Publisher's 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?

    "Loved it!!!"
    Would you listen to Burning Bright again? Why?

    This was a captivating read with a strong female protagonist and wonderful story telling. At first I wasn't sure of the narrator, but within a chapter or so I really liked her. Too many new/younger adult type books have syrupy sweet young voices that are so irritating - this narrator was more mature and more fitting with the character. I am definitely looking forward to more audiobooks from this author.

    "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.

    "Bad narrator."

    I read this book with kindle and whispersync, so I only had to listen to the narrator for a few chapters here and there, otherwise, I may not have finished the book.

    "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.
