Firewalker (Stormwalker #2)
I keep trying to articulate my impressions of this series in discussion threads and failing. James' humor isn't typical urban fantasy-grade. You know the sort, clever run-on sentences in dialogue that could only come from a writer's pen, never out of the mouths of real men and women -because, if nothing else, they would run out of oxygen.
James' humor is normal. Her charac ...more
Update- still haven't slept but I thought I could at the very minimum explain why I loved this one even more..
1) The relationships- There is Janet and Mick, ...more
Wow, what a ride.
Dragons, and Coyote, and shifters and witches OH MY!
We enter this story with Mick trapped somewhere, and Janet has no one but Nash Jones, dickhead sheriff to help her out. And she only got his help through blackmail!
Once they've rescued Mick, he tells Janet that the dragon council will try him for disobeying an order in not killing her when he was first sent. He claimed her as his mate to protect her as much as he could, but he still will ...more

Now, her beneath powers are growing stronger and telling her that she can be even more powerful if she were to release the Stormwalker part of her and embrace her dark side. She has been in Magellan for the past five mo ...more
1.) Janet finally turned into a badass, albeit was mostly verbal but still, I was pleased with her skills to punk certain individuals. 2.) I was also surprised by Nash. Not only was he freaking useful, but he didn't get on my nerves, I actually was ready to have him in on the action. 3.) Maya was a better person as well. I actually found myself not wanting to strangle her myself. It wasn't that she was useful, just a lot less annoying. 4.) Cassan ...more
I'm looking forward to the next in the series. The blurb on the back is what got me interested in reading this series.
Great addition to this series and I am very much looking forwa ...more
I was lagging on this series until I read the connected short Doubled Hexed in the Hexed anthology which inspired me to pick this back up.
First the good: I really love Janet, here she has settled a bit into her relationship with her one and only - dragon Mick - and she now has a handle on her storm powers but is struggling to control the dark god powers she's inherited from her evil mama. There is a good amount of action in Firewalker , with Mick in big trouble with the Drago ...more
Janet Begay is a gutsy heroine with a strong sense of right and good sense. In Firewalker she is struggling with her dual magical natures - that of a StormWalker, and Beneath powers from her godess mother. I really liked James's exploration of Janet' ...more
In this installment, which is a little different than what the back of the book says, Janet is having a hard time trying to save Mick's life, her life and the lives of her friends.
It's tough being half-goddess.
It's even tougher when your friends and loved ones won't hesitate to kill you should you fail to control the magic that was instilled in you by your bitch mother and the earth.
It's a thousand times harder when the l ...more
Janet and Mick are still dealing with the consequences of the last book, the major one being that Mick is now on trial for not killing Janet. With more dragons entering the picture we learn more about Mick and his background, which has some surprising revelations.
Janet also seems to be on trial with all the gods that are ar ...more
The reason I use the term 'rushed' is (and this may well not have been the author's fault but rather the publisher's) that there were certain problems throughout the book. Most of them were not major enough to be glaring, yet they detracted enough ...more
Firewalker opens with Janet managing her hotel, without Mick; he’s been missing for a few weeks with no word. Shortly afterwards a shifter informs Janet that she discovered where Mick is and Janet leaves immediately to help him; taking Nash with her. Together they are able to break Mick free of the magic prison that the dragons placed on him; however, as they ...more
why has this series languished on my TBR pile. i remember having to re-read book 1 as it had been so long. this is a fast paced action series with a great magical element. the first chapter sees the characters delving straight into the action and it never lets up after that. there is also a nice big reveal at the end of this book!
It was bad. Simply bad. Same inane characters from the first book; a different plot, but also inane all the same. Seriously? EVERY male to meet the main character says she's got balls/spunk? I frankly can't see what is so special about her, except for ...more
James (a pseudonym for bestseller Jennifer Ashley) follows May 2010's Stormwalker with more sexy and fresh rural fantasy romance set in fictional Hopi County, Ariz. Dragons, vampires, and demons populate this version of the southwest, along with Native entities Coyote and Crow. Janet Begay, half Navajo and half hell-goddess, is a Stormwalker and the owner of the Crossroads Hotel. When her dragon boyfriend, Mick, vanishes for a few weeks and then sends a cryptic plea for h...more
Yes. That's terrible.
Because the story was on the surface, trying to shove my attention towards it. I just found it to be boring quite honestly. The first book was better to me, I guess it was because I was new to the paranormal genre. Now that I am somewhat familiar, Mick became cardboard; Janet was uninteresting; the magic mirror was annoying; and the story was not ...more
Stormwalker Janet Begay is a product of a demoness and a Native American with hereditary earth powers. Love interest Mick (the dragon shifter) is in trouble with the dragon council for not killing Janet when he was first sent (he fell in love instead). His dragon trial is upcoming and Janet is flipping out though Mick is ta ...more

Her boyfriend, Mick, a sexy dragon shape-shifter the Navajo call a Firewalker, knows what terrifying magic is threatening to overwhelm J ...more

Mick has been trapped in fiery prison by the dragon council and it’s up to Janet to find and save him. Mick is awaiting trial on charges that he disobeyed a direct order to kill Janet whom the dragon council think is evil incarnate and a threat to all kind.
Janet is the daughter of an Indian shaman and a hell goddess. She possesses both good earth mag ...more
In urban fantasy, I like magic to exact a price. The more powerful the magic, the more severe the price should be. In FIREWALKER, Janet has long since mastered her paternal Storm magic, and thanks to her scorchingly hot dragon shifter boyfriend, she doesn’t have to worry anymore about the residual magic burn out. Her maternal Beneath magic is something Janet is just beginning to tap into and, despite being a little unreliable, it came a little to easy t ...more

Maya gave him a scornful look as only Maya could. "Who the hell are you?"
"Your dream come true, sweetheart."
"I might puke." Maya shoved past him, her toolbox just missing his groin. "It's too early in the morning for assholes.”
