Burning Alive

Burning Alive - Shannon K. Butcher

I feel like I *should* have liked this more than I did.  I had a hard time connecting.  Helen has had visions of burning alive while a strange man watches her.  When she sees this man while she is dining out, she gets scared.  

I thought Helen was stupid at times.  I found her fear of fire annoying.  I really had a hard time connecting with her (or even liking her).  Drake was okay.  Their relationship developed fast. A bit of an open ended epilogue (dare I say cliffhanger?).

Interesting concepts (the tattooed trees) and I liked some of the secondary characters.  I'm on the fence about continuing on to book 2.
