She escaped the fire–but not the effects of the burn.

Janeal feels trapped in her father’s Gypsy culture. But everything changes 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 attacks the gypsy settlement and burns it to the ground. During the blaze, Janeal is faced with a staggering choice that changes the course of her life. Years later, the terrible truth of what really happened that night begins to sear Janeal’s soul. 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.

Read the reviews.



  • Reuben Horst says:

    Wow, this book was simply amazing. Though it had it’s boring parts, it was overall a great thriller. I liked it better than Kiss, though I don’t know what other people think.

    The massacre was a bit gruesome, the middle part of the book was a bit boring, and the amazing plot twist took far too long to set in, but it’s still a very good book. I’d certainly recomend it.

    Also, I loved the fact that I was mentioned (noy by name) in the Q&A at the end. XD

  • From the first sentence you are entrenched into the world of gypsies and the awful reality of what it means to burn from within. Janeal is a character people can hold onto, she becomes real to us with her struggle, pain and even her hopes for a better future.

    Burn is a page turner right from the very beginning. It’s haunting script leaves the reader craving to know more, enthralled in the storyline and characters. Once you pick it up, be prepared to read right through to the end.

    If you like books that take you out of your comfort zone and shake you around and make you think then, you will enjoy BURN. BURN has you on the run and on the defensive from the very first page.

    This is a heart-pounding story that strips away any notion you think you have of living through a terrible event and coming out unscathed and unchanged. I recommend this story to the faint and not so faint of heart. Everyone needs to read this story. This is how some people (I’m sure) feel after going through a traumatic experience\event. The amazing writing of Erin Healy and Ted Dekker will have you second and triple guessing what’s coming next, what you just read, and what you are reading. What you see, hear, and feel is not always reality, or is it?

  • Evan Morgan says:

    Totally amazing! Epic and mind boggling with a plot I thought I had figured out but was wrong about. Deffinately a must read!!!

  • Kathy Brasby says:

    A thought-provoking story wrapped by tense, well-written suspense. I find the story continues to grip me after I closed the last page of the book. Highly recommended and well-written.

  • Eugene Henry says:

    I am hoping to become a published writer, and would like to hear your advice and input from your perspective. I feel inspired. I read Burn. I was initially upset when Janeal years later realized that maybe “Katie” ‘resurrected’ was Janeal other half-the ‘good half”. I thought Oh, no things were going so well with the story. I forget i was reading fiction. Wow! My views have changed. Please get in touch with me. I’d love to get published as I’m sure all writers do-maybe. I feel that writing is now my life, and noting i would want to do more.

  • R. Ramirez says:

    This book is amazing! Once I opened it, I couldn’t put it down. It was sure an emotional ride. =)

  • Kalie G. says:

    This was a wonderful book! It made the reader feel angry, happy, and even sad. The ending blew me away. Brilliant. Impossible to put down. I’m an aspiring writer and this book reminded me why I want to be a writer.

  • Laurie Piel says:

    If we could physically become two separate selves – the dark self and the loving self – could the loving self overcome the dark self with love? Intriguing ideas to ponder from this book, with such a unique cast of characters and circumstances. Loved it, read it very fast!

  • Easily one of my favorite novels. The plot literally blows you away.

    I can’t even remember the last time I read a book that held as much meaning as this one did. It was thought provoking and even months after reading it I still think about it. It made me step back, examine my life and see what needs to be burned away. This is a novel that EVERY Christian NEEDS to read.

  • Jeanne H. says:

    I rarely come across a book these days that I get so intriqued I cannot put it down. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!! “Burn” is amazing,thought provoking, intriguing, at times disturbing! The best part is that the ending is absolutely nothing I would have ever suspected which was a wonderful delicious surprise!!! I am so excited about this book that I have already bought a copy for my Dad for Father’s Day. I know its over 2 months away but knew he will love it and wanted to pass it along.
    Erin & Ted Dekker are amazing, cannot wait to see how Erin’s book on her own reads.
    Get this book now, you will not be disappointed.
    The only downside is if you don’t have a lot of time to read at one sitting you will be wishing you did, its terribly difficult to put this book down.

  • Dave Peck says:

    I read both Kiss and Burn and can’t wait to read Never Let You Go.

    I really enjoyed Burn. It really kept you on the edge of your seat and always kept you wondering what the next twist was going to be.

    The ending and it’s meaning was exceptional.

  • Josh Olds says:

    Burn was a unique novel for me. I first got an ARC of it at the 2009 Gathering and read it not long after that. It was one of those books so filled with meaning that it really took a couple reads for me to get everything the book was about.

  • Andrew Asdell says:

    I had a blast reading this book. I came into it totally blind as to what it would be about, with just the gripping cover to pull me in.

    Once I got started, the story just kept unfolding, and I kept on reading. The themes of redemption mixed with the intense action and great characters kept me hooked.

    It’s by far the #1 Dekker book and the #1 Healy book I recommend to first-time readers of either author.

  • Brian Coultrup says:

    I was lucky enough to get an advanced reader’s copy of Burn at The Gathering. I read it in two days! I loved Kiss and I think Burn is even better. Once again we have a strong female lead and a very interesting cast of characters. And if you like plot twists, then this is the book for you! I loved it so much that even though I had already read it, I still bought a copy the day it was released.

  • Penny Abel says:

    This book will grab you from start to finish. It has many surprises and twists to keep you turning the pages. If you’ve never read Ted Dekker or Erin Healy buckle up and enjoy the ride!

  • Curtis says:

    Dude. This book is amazing.. I’m about 2/3 done with it and I still have no idea what’s gonna happen… I love that 🙂 I love howTedand Erin let you slowly piece things together as you look at the story piece by piece from different perspectives. I can’t wait to read the sequel they’re writing to BLINK!!! 😀

  • Danyalle says:

    This book was a little hard to get into for me, But once I was in it…. I could not put it down. I stayed up till 1am one night to finish it. Not a great thing to do when you are a mom of 5 and have to homeschool them in the am. LOL

  • Josie S. says:

    Burn was a great book! It captures your attention from the start and even if you think you have it figured out, you’re never quite sure. Great read. I passed it along to my mom and it was so much fun watching her read it. She just kept saying, “but that’s not possible!”
