If you’ve listened to books by Ted Dekker before, how does this one compare?
Even though other Ted Dekker books had things that seemed out of this world, they were somehow still believeable. However, this book would have been more compelling had the story not turned out how it did with **SPOILER WARNING** the main character somehow being the same person in two people. Had Katie/Janeal been twins and not known it or something like that, the story of forgiveness/sacrifice/healing would have been that much more powerful. Also, I wish the message was stronger about God being the reason we can even have true forgiveness, true love and acceptance, etc. A little disappointing, but still a Ted Dekker fan!
What does Ann Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I thought she was a fantastic narrator!
Do you think Burn needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
If you've read any Dekker books, you know that you're in for a ride even before you open the book. I didn't expect the storyline to go the way it did, but Dekker usually does that- the unexpected.
Janeal, the main character, lives in a gypsy "kumpania" with her father in the first part of the novel, but she's not completely happy with her life there. Salazar Sanso, a drug dealer, approaches Janeal with a deal that could help Janeal leave the kumpania, but it backfires on Janeal and her life is forever changed.
I did enjoy the progression of the story, but the twist was somewhat unbelievable, a little crazy. I can't say too much without giving it away. It was, for certain, an entertaining story about good versus evil.
The narration was excellent. I especially enjoyed the Latino accent of Salazar Sanso.
