bookshelves: thriller

Burn was my first exposure to Ted Dekker & Erin Healy writing together. In Burn, Dekker & Healy have created complex female lead characters. Janeal, the lead protagonist, is a sympathetic and nuanced.

Born of mixed heritage and treated as an outsider by the Rom and the outside world, Janeal quick to react in a crisis. Janeal finds herself a pawn in power struggle and she's forced to choose between her father and security. Janeal struggles with the repercussions of this choice for years to come.

Burn starts out strong - I found myself rooting for Janeal to rise above her situation. I found the paranormal angle to be a bit disappointing, although other readers might enjoy this aspect of the book. Overall, Burn is a fun, thrilling read.
