Title: Until We Burn: A Psychological Thriller
Author: David Kummer
Cyrus Street never forgot about his home. It was always in the back of his mind, with the memories, the nightmares. Alluring, always pulling him back. There were so many questions unanswered. Something he left behind.
When he finally returns, he’s drawn back into a world even worse than he remembers. Werifesteria, with its dark secrets and murky past, never changed. It remains a cesspool, a danger. There’s something about the town unnerving, yet enticing. It isn’t normal. It isn’t sane.
As soon as Cyrus steps back into it, the murders begin. He’s the only one can catch this madman, if he can only control his mind.
Everybody remembers the fire. Everybody remembers him. But there’s a darkness he’s buried inside his own head. And unless he can remember, the entire town will burn.
The plot of this story was very compelling and had a fantastically twisted main character to pull it off. With a unique murder case to solve, the book had a lot of twists and turns that kept me reading. However, I was thrown off a bit by the dialogue and some of the author’s writing style when it came to things like grammar and syntax. While the story delivers its promised punch, it felt as if there were some things missing overall.
