Lily is back in her own universe, and she's ready to relax with Rowan. True, she almost died in the Pyre that fueled their escape and must hide her 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. If she can't persuade Lily to return to her world, she'll have to find a way to make her come back.
Picking up right where Trial by Fire left off, Firewalker is another sexy, fast-paced, heartbreaking thrill ride from internationally best-selling author Josephine Angelini!

Would you listen to Firewalker again? Why?
Yes, I might when I do my usual re-listen of the books in my library.
What did you like best about this story?
I just love the broken down mechanics of magic. Magic isn't some flighty element that someone just HAS for the fun of it. No unicorns and rainbows. Magic has to be built up with so many components with the help of others. It's dirty and bloody and gross. Logical, hard worked for magic is the best magic.
The muddied morality of each character is a beautiful breath of fresh air, as well. Not everyone is straight evil and not everyone is a saint.
Also, I liked the additional characters brought into this novel so that the two worlds intermingle and are just plain messed up.
What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
First of all, I highly enjoy her performance in this series.
There must be something in Lily's character that really makes Emma Galvin give it her all when performing that the "Divergent Series" didn't have. Perhaps it's the POV and first person just isn't the best for Emma. I've listened to her rendition of "Mediator: Haunted," and though anything would be better than the "Divergent" Tris whine, Emma just seems to be more comfortable in third person.
That being said, I don't think I could listen to another narrator when the third novel comes out. I swear, if they go down the usual road of getting a male narrator to voice out some lines after two solid novels of just a solo reader, I WILL...still listen to it, but be peeved.
There are a lot of characters, and although no one can top Jim Dale in the voice-to-each-character department, she did a fine job giving the voices just what they needed to avoid confusion.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Hmn, there is one specific instance that I'm sure everyone is aware of. Lily promises something that I believe my fellow listeners were like, "Nope! Lily, you silly girl, can't you see you've promised yourself into a plot device that you'll later regret down the road? Geeze!"
Any additional comments?
If you had doubts from the first novel, this one should smooth out the wrinkles for you.
