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.
