 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...

Helen Day is haunted by visions of herself surrounded by flames, as a dark-haired man watches her burn. So when she sees the man of her nightmares staring at her from across a diner, she attempts to flee-but instead ends up in the man's arms. There, she awakens a force more powerful and enticing than she could ever imagine. For the man is actually Theronai warrior Drake, whose own pain is driven away by Helen's presence.

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...

My Review

The emotions that are brought to life in this book are amazing. These are not your pristine and all around perfect heroes, although they are wonderful. They are scarred, lonely, pissed off, happy, and sometimes sarcastic. Living life for centuries enduring mind numbing pain and still having the courage to keep on living and fighting for the greater good. That is what I call a hero! This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time hoping that everything would be alright and unlike some novels where the main characters get all the attention it had memorable secondary characters as well. In fact just when I thought I was getting lost in the goings on of one character another would come up that would be just as interesting. The main characters Helen and Drake are of course the main focus ,but the other characters had important roles too that they played  in this world of good vs. evil. 

Drake was a very sexy hero and even knowing that he would die without Helen he still gave her the chance to choose whether or not she wanted to stay with him.

Helen was very much afraid of Drake and the world that she was pulled into, but no matter how scared she got she always stood up for what she believed was right and even risked her life in order to protect the ones she loved.

Take a trip to a world filled with dangerous enemies and explosive passion in "Burning Alive" by Shannon K. Butcher.
