Ted Dekker is known for unpredictable twists, and this book is no exception. The plot revolves around a young woman and her struggle over whether good or evil will seize her heart. The depiction of evil people as self-centered is true to life and chilling. Yet the book, as all of Dekker's books, leaves ample room for grace. I highly recommend this book. ( )

I honestly didn't really like the book. I've seen better from Ted, however, it hasn't made my opinion change any of Ted Dekkers obvious ability to write amazing work. ( )

I struggled to identify or sympathize with most of the characters in the book, but it passed the time on the train without too much mental strain. ( )

I picked up this book because my niece likes Ted Dekker books and I was curious to see what he was like. This book kept you reading. I wasn't a big fan of Janeal and was a bit confused about her also being in Lexie. I didn't care for Lexie as a teen but liked "her" as an adult. There were certainly enough plot twists and an ending I didn't expect. ( )

An action-packed story full of mystery that kept me on my toes. My only complaint was that it took me a bit to get into the story because I found the protagonist difficult to connect with and was frustrated by her choices. Despite this, it kept my attention. Midway through, a typical Dekker twist gave the payback I needed to consider this book a win.



I can say without a doubt that I am a fan of the Dekker/Healy combined efforts. Kiss is one of my favorite books and Burn, while not surpassing its predecessor, was a close second. As most of Dekker's books do, Burn tackles tough questions. Specifically, it explores the idea of regret and handling mistakes of the past. Everyone is given a choice, and though we can't change the past, we can decide how it will effect our futures.



This was another book that made me say, "I love Ted Dekker." ( )
