Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Burning Alive by Shannon K Butcher

Burning Alive (Sentinel Wars, #1) Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher









My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the first in the Sentinel Wars by Shannon K Butcher. It's a Urban Fantasy and I really enjoyed it! Helan Day is the protagonist in the story and I find I like her. She's not your typically strong and sexy type, but she' a strong willed a a good person.
PLOT from amazon: Her entire life Helen Day has haunted by dreams of burning alive while a man watches her and smiles. So when she meets Drake, the man of her dreams, in a diner, she knows she doesn't have long to live. Drake is a Theronai warrior, sworn to protect humans. He's been protecting humanity from demons called the Synestryn for centuries.
I really liked the scene where Helen and Drake meet. It's intense but interesting. The characters are fun and easy to relate to, even if they aren't from our type of world. The book has a good amount of action and romance and has some sizzling scenes. The book is really well paced and I can honestly say I'm stoked for the next book. .. The only thing I didn't love is his hair on the books cover.. haha! Everything else was a great find. I really enjoyed this book.

Synopsis:

There are worse ways to die...

They are the Sentinels. Three races descended from ancient guardians of mankind, each possessing unique abilities in their battle to protect humanity against their eternal foes--the Synestryn. Now, one warrior must fight his own desire if he is to discover the power that lies within his one true love...

For too long, Helen Day has been haunted by visions of her own death, surrounded by flames as a dark-haired man watches her burn. So when she sees the man of her nightmares staring at her across a diner, she attempts to flee--and ends up in the man's arms. There, she awakens a force more powerful and enticing than she could ever imagine.

The instant the Theronai warrior Drake touches Helen, the anguish he has borne for years fades away. He is determined to know why this beautiful, fearful woman has such power over him. The answer lies in his very blood--and in Helen's as well. For together, they may become more than lovers--they may become a weapon of light that could tip the balance of the war--and save Drake's people...


It's a great paranormal book, I loved it and recommend others to pick it up!
