Kristy Duncan has a secret - a burning secret.
Eighteen-year-old Kristy has a happy life with her foster parents and close friends at school, but she is not safe from the horrors of her past. She can't remember her birth mother or receiving the severe burns across her chest, but as her nightmares grow worse, her trauma-induced amnesia begins to clear, and she slowly remembers the apocalyptic suicide cult deep in the Everglades. As Kristy's friends and acquaintances begin to meet strange and horrible deaths by fire, Kristy learns that the homicidal cult leader has returned - from beyond the grave - to claim his last remaining child.

Burn Baby Burn!
It is by far the best horror book I have listened to so far, and I am a big horror genre fan. This is well written with compelling characters, and it is scary. Very scary. I was hesitant to light candles for several weeks after reading this story.
I don't think there is a book you can compare it to. It has supernatural, religious, and horror elements but in a unique mix. The scenes are graphic, gritty and realistic. You can smell the smoke. You can taste the fear.
Hearing a story is always more terrifying than reading it. Audio books bring back the lost art of story telling. Listening to this story is like sitting around the campfire listening to a master story teller tell a scary tale. Adam Zens' voice is a perfect match for the story. It feels like an authentic part of the story--the story in living color or rather sound.
I'd say it is a toss up between the Pastor--a charismatic yet sinister zealot and Mr. Walker--a tortured brooding soul.
This is an exceptional book. It you enjoy the horror genre, you will love this book. Obviously, not for children. You'd scare them to death. Probably best for the older teen or adult.
