REVIEW: Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher

Which turns out to be a good thing because the Theronai’s enemies, The Synestryn, have found them and want her as well. It’s an easy read that won’t take you that long but to me, a great book has to be something you can’t put down even if you tried.

There’s a creepy little kid [who isn’t a kid: Many discussions were trying to convince Helen of various things–over and over again. The dialog is intelligent and even though its a paranormal, you aren’t thrown into a world too far out to be unbelievable.

Anyway, I’m thinking this is going to be a series for me to keep up with. The only thing I didn’t love is his hair on the books cover.
