Lily Proctor has made it back to her own universe, and it’s finally time for her and Rowan to be happy and relax. True, she almost died in the Pyre that fueled their escape, and they must hide her new magic for the safety of the world, but compared to fighting the monstrous Woven and leading armies in the alternate Salem, life is looking good.
‘You think I’m a monster, but my choices, as ruthless as they seem, are justified.’
Unfortunately, Lillian, ruthless ruler of the 13 Cities, is not willing to let Lily go that easily. Lily is the closest version of herself she’s ever seen in all her worldwalking, and Lillian’s running out of time. If she can’t persuade Lily and Rowan to return to her world, she’ll have to find a way to make them come back.
Firewalker – the follow-up to Trial By Fire – is another sexy, fast-paced thrill ride from internationally bestselling author of the Starcrossed series, Josephine Angelini!
Really enjoyed this book, it was a very satisfying sequel and I can’t wait for the third (and final!) book to be released.
This book had lots of different dynamics that I loved. For one, I loved that we got to see more of the cinder worlds and the world jumping. Also seeing Rowan in Lily’s world was awesome too (and amusing, especially his obsession with the internet).
Also I loved getting to know more about Lillian and her motives. Finding out why she’s kills scientists, and why she hanged Rowans father, and about what happened to her those weeks she was away.
The struggle between whose “good” and whose “bad” was portrayed brilliantly. Many characters have good intentions but the way they go about things isn’t necessarily good.
Lily is an awesome character, too. She’s not afraid to be curious or to challenge others peoples beliefs.
The only thing the annoyed me really was about how some of the “mundane” characters easily accepted magic and Lily being a witch. Yes, being mechanics is in their blood or whatever an they’re drawn to her…but still, they accepted it a bit too easily for me.
All in all, I really enjoyed this book. It picked up right off where Trial by Fire ended, and it was so easy to get back into the book. Oh, and all these different characters meeting each other was brilliant — I have no idea what I would do of I met another version of myself.
Next book, please hurry up!
