Waiting on Wednesday: Burn by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Burn by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy set to release January 2010.

About the book:

She Escaped the Fire—But Not the Effects of the Burn

Janeal feels trapped in her father’s Gypsy culture. But everything changes one night when a brutal and powerful man named Salazar Sanso promises her the life she longs for if she will help recover a vast sum of money tied to her father.

When the plan implodes, Sanso and his men attack the gypsy settlement and burn it to the ground. During the blaze, Janeal is faced with a staggering choice.

The impact of that choice changes her forever.

Years later, the wonderful and terrible truth of what really happened that night begins to sear Janeal’s soul. In a horrifying revelation, Janeal learns that nothing about her life since has been exactly what it seems. As truth rises from the ashes of her past, Janeal finds she must make a new life-or-death choice. But this time, escape is not an option.

I'm really looking forward to this book! The Dekker/Healy combo did a great job last year with Kiss, and I have no doubt that this book will be just as incredible! :o)

  2. cool cover. and the gypsy element is different.

  3. One of my students reviewed Kiss last year, and I thought it sounded really intriguing. This one looks interesting too.
