There were tons of creatures with different abilities, two different Sentinel races currently living in a fragile truce, the history of how the Sentinels came to be and a “mythological” ancient race living behind closed doors in fear of the Synestryn and refusing to help the Theronai help them, the secrets the Gray Lady was keeping though I have a pretty good idea what that wasthe mysterious resurfacing of Theronai females though they don’t know it yet etc.

For a few special people, they have enough ancient blood that it manifests in various supernatural gifts. I feel that Ms. But despite all the the aforementioned, despite the cringe-y dialogues, despite the constant need for touching in the first half of the book, this book had potential. But shnanon the same time, I think it showed the cost of this war.

Drake is already suffering from Thomas’ loss and now she is totally using Thomas death against him. I was concerned that all the bad guys seemed to be low brain functioning creatures but there is one scene proving butcer wrong and foreshadowing some nasty stuff to come.

The only thing preventing this butchher from being a 5 star book is that Helen went from being brave to cowardly and then hid behind her cowardice excuse. This gives Zack the perfect excuse to manhandle Lexi, the only waitress working in the whole place.

Book Review: Shannon K. Butcher’s Burning Alive – KD Did It Edits

They believe that Helen is a descendant of the Anathasians. For some reason there are no other customers or diner workers around. Okay, so there was a lot to like in there. So when she meets Drake, the man of her dreams, in a diner, she knows she doesn’t have long to live. Helen is somewhat of a wreck but Drake keeps her protected because he is quite the skilled fighter who can fight with one hand while he keeps his other hand on Helen at all times.


Drake is super-alpha male.

Burning Alive

Why was it never explained? I felt the awe and the anguish at seeing how very many swords hung there. Burning Alive is an interesting book to recap because my reasons for liking it are not the norm. Read it Forward Read it first. Looking for More Great Reads? That section was short and then the book was over. Drake and his other Sentinel friend, Zach are enjoying coffee waiting for a few of their brothers… erm sorry wrong series, other Sentinels to arrive.

La de da la! What makes it even worse is the women who are so doubtful of their sex appeal are always built like the proverbial brick shithouse.

Oct 20, Kathrynn rated it it was ok Shelves: Be doubtful you could inspire lust in a hunka-hunka burnin’ love if you’ve got thunder thighs, a pot belly, and swaths of cellulite. The whole dying race and sterile men and slaughtered women actually managed to grab my attention, I was even interested in the whole energy conversion thing. And since she accepts that and finds it and him attractive and oh so manly and hot, she’s obviously NOT the kind of heroine I want to cheer on.

All of their females were slaughtered by their enemy centuries ago Pros: The instant the Theronai warrior Drake touches Helen, the anguish he has borne for years fades away.

Still, since the series was starting out, it made sense that Drake’s heroine might be a bit meek.

Okay, then, I want to stop now because I don’t think it’s a good idea to have sex with you. They had good chemistry, with some steamy love scenes. Helen is his outlet. I didn’t mean to and I usually try to keep myself under control. Shannon Butcher does a nice job unfurling the world bringing in different facets as the book progresses without overwhelming the reader. But, I hesitate to solidify my opinion of it because it’s the first book in a alice.


Besides that, I actually like these two together.

REVIEW: Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher

But b 2 Potential-filled But Lackluster Stars This book was seemed to be just on the verge of being good the whole time I was reading it Drake takes the two women to safety along with Thomas who is close to loosing his soul.

For too long, Helen Day has been haunted by visions of her own death, surrounded by flames as butcner dark-haired man watches her burn.

There, she awakens a force more powerful and enticing than she could ever imagine. I’m really not liking her. But then the author decided to kill him off and there was no one else for me to care about.

I had trouble caring about Drake and Helen’s romance, knowing that this person was dead. I liked the storyline about Sentinels and their war against the Senestryn, a race of demons. No man wants a woman like that, especially when it’s compounded by the second undesirable thing about Helen: Good dialogue and character development though.

It never quite gets any deeper than Helen always afraid of her vision coming true [therefore never quite falling for Drake: Sometimes in the book the author would just introduce a o character and I would shajnon like I was missing something.

I really wanted a glossary – or at least a scorecard! May 05, Pages Buy. So I knew what I was in for, but I kept on going anyway, mainly because I was intrigued by the basic premise of the book: I received this book for free from the library in exchange for an honest review.

Some authors can weave multiple storylines into their novels with ease, while others shouldn’t attempt it, especially when those attempts leave the reader bouncing around, wondering why they should care about this character’s crazy mother or that one’s life of deception, when there’s no discernible reason.
