A woman comes to in a prison pod and has no idea who she is
or how she got there. With the limited help of the prisoner
she is chained to she learns more about the world around
her. It is not how her faulty memory remembers it. So much
has changed but knowing the enemy now controls her world
makes her want to BURN everyone in sight. Especially when
she realizes that the drakkons are being controlled by the
Mareritt (the enemy), but these are not the animals she knew
and loved. What happened to her, and how did she get to this
time and place?
Kaiden Silva is a warrior who has no reason to trust the
woman he is chained to but escaping their enemy is very much
in his plans. They are working on a weapon, and that weapon
is supposed to be strong enough to wipe out the remaining
residents of his world. What Kaiden could never imagine is
that his forced companion will remember who she is and where
she came from and possibly be the answer to several prayers
... or the final bomb in the enemies arsenal.
BURN is totally mind-blowing. The idea of drakkon warriors
might not be a new concept, but there is a twist in this
offering by author Keri Arthur. I cannot get into too much
of Nara's history as that will give up too much of a plot,
but suffice to say she has landed where she needs to be to
avenge so many wrongs. Kaiden is tough, reluctant to trust
but that trust comes as he learns more about the woman that
she is, was and will be. When she almost dies at one point
he and one of the small drakkons that remain in the world,
stand by her side and give her reason to keep going.
All of the characters in this book seem real, their
conversations practical and the action is nonstop as Kaiden
and Nara run for their lives as they try to figure out what
is going on and then, how to stop the enemy from destroying
everything and everyone they know and love. The
communication Nara has with the drakkons they do manage to
rescue gave me a number of smiling moments, if not laugh out
loud ones, especially with Oma and her very practical plans
for the enemy.
Writing books that stay with you, fascinate and make you
want more seem to be Ms. Arthur's forte, as BURN is just
that kind of read. If you want a dystopic world, a sexy
hero, kick-butt heroine, drakkons, mages, magic and a nice
touch of romance then BURN will have to be the next book you
get your hands on.

Will a woman with no memory be the salvation of her peopleâ€¦
or the means of their final destruction?
Nara Velez wakes in a prison pod with no idea how she got
there. She quickly learns that things have drastically
changed during the time she canâ€™t rememberâ€”and not just with
her situation. The Marerittâ€”an ancient enemyâ€”now control
most of Arleeon and treat her people little better than slaves.
Worse still, the Mareritt also control the drakkons.
Nara has no choice but to work with Kaiden Silva, the
warrior sheâ€™s been chained to and a man who distrusts her
deeply. But escaping the Mareritt is only the first of their
problems; they soon discover their enemy is working on a
brand-new weaponâ€”one with the power to wipe out the last
remaining free city in Arleeon, just as theyâ€™d wiped out the
drakkon warriors of yesteryear.
If Nara is to have any hope of freeing Arleeon, she must
first regain her memories and determine why they were
But in doing so, she might just unleash hell on the very
people she is trying to save.
Because there is magic in her mindâ€¦ and its source is Mareritt.
