She escaped the fire--but not the effects of the burn.
Janeal has long felt trapped in her father's Gypsy culture. Then one night a 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 moment changes her forever.
As her past rises from the ashes, Janeal faces a new life-or-death choice. And this time, escape is not an option.
Dekker and Healy follow their collaboration in Kiss with another odyssey into the paranormal that transports readers into another dimension and returns them head spinning, never to see their own world in quite the same way. Two young friends are propelled out of their Gypsy clan when shady characters burn their kumpania (community). The girls lose family and friends in the fire and grow up separated from each other and the boy they both loved. One is faced with an impossible choice that haunts her until the girls meet 15 years later, where a reality-bender twist is revealed. Readers who enjoy allegorical stories that are rooted in the Bible will find dozens of connections, some force-fed ("He was the Jesus to Janeal's Judas") and others unorthodox but mind-zinging (" `Who can imagine what God and Satan discuss? Certainly Job had no idea God was gambling with his life.' ") Christian fiction lovers who enjoy romantic interest, frantic chases by sinister figures of biblical proportions, suspense, and the old-fashioned joy of suspending disbelief will find this new dynamic writing duo, once a writer-editor combo, fiery hot.

1 . BEST BOOK WRITTEN!!!!!!!!
Posted May 10, 2011 by Dekker Fan , Platte City MODefinitely the best book I have ever read. I, sometimes, almost felt the emotions the characters were supposed to be feeling. It was REALLY well written. Yes, it did have a somewhat weird plot, but it was very, VERY interesting. Highly recommended.
