Firewalker was more of the same, and I mean that in a good way. Once again, we have the characters, action, and good times. ;)

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

I was trying to write a review but I'm so tired from staying up half the night reading this book. I could not stop reading it. I read it walking, I read it cooking, I even read it while brushing my teeth. I loved every minute of it. I guess that says more than any review I could possibly write. So, until I sleep, that will have to be enough.

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

What an awesome addition to this series!! Janet and Mich thought that the worst was over when her mother was sealed out in the desert. Well not so fast.

Nick disappeared a couple of weeks ago and Janet just got a message the he is in trouble. Once she finally gets him back, she finds out that Nick has to be put on trial in front of the dragon council for his decision not to kill Janet when he first met her.

But now Janet has even more things to worry with. She seems to have manifested even more...more

Allyson James' Firewalker is the second installment in the Stormwalker series featuring Janet Begay as the main protagonist. Janet is a powerful Stormwalker who is able to control the storms as well as heal herself and spin magic. 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 enjoyed this one much more than the first book in the series. I did enjoy the first book in the series but this one seemed to have more action and more excitement. I felt much more connected to Mick in this one. (view spoiler)

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

(3*** = I liked it)

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

I first read Stormwalker to complete a challenge and enjoyed it so I had kept an eye out for Firewalker and was pleased to finally have the chance to read it.There are so many appealing elements in this series as I wasn't dissapointed by this sequel.
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

I finished this is in one day. That should tell you something right there.

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

This book really cemented just how much I really like Janet. She is a strong woman, one who believes in her friends and loved ones, but also asks for help when she needs it.

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

Overall I enjoyed this book, which was fun when taken as a light, 'fluffy' read. I had enjoyed the first book in this series, 'Stormwalker', and was looking forward to this one. I was disappointed in one respect however: this book felt a little rushed.

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 is the second book in Ms. James’ Stormwalker series, and it starts a short time after the end of the first book. Janet Begay, a Native American stormwalker, with the power of Beneath magic from her goddess mother, has settled down in Megellan and opened up the hotel she was renovating throughout all of book one. She’s hired a witch, Cassandra, to manager her place and business is good. Mick’s been missing for three weeks, and although he has been more open with Janet since she found o...more

Allyson James has two series about dragon shape-shifters; this one is the second in her Stormwalker series. Ms. James also writes historical romances under the name Jennifer Ashley, which are a lot of fun, so if dragons aren’t your thing but velvet and lace are, check her out! I read Stormwalker some time last year, but I didn’t realize that the sequel was out until I saw it at the library this weekend. This is actually better than the first book, and I enjoyed the first one considerably. Janet...more

I hadn’t realized how much I missed Janet and Mick until I decided to pick up ‘Firewalker’, the 2nd in Allyson James’ Stormwalker Series.

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

4.5 stars

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!
Kristen
*slight spoilers* I finished this book within two days because I cant get enough of this awesome series. Janet and the gang our back and the dragons are really not happy that Mick didnt kill Janet after she opened the vortex in the last book. Everyone is back, Nash, Maya, Coyote, and the magic mirror, also some interesting new characters such as more dragons, a witch, shapeshifters and a lot more awesome surprises. This book has a ton of action and death defying moments for Janet and she has to...more

Janet thought sealing her mother in the Beneath put an end to her problems. But, she was dead wrong. She just found out that her boyfriend, Mick, is a Firewalker or dragon. Who was sent to kill her, but instead after years of being together claimed her as his mate for her protection. Now Mick must face the Dragon council for not killing Janet after her mother’s release even though she was sealed back in the Beneath. Plus, Janet must learn to deal with her own Beneath magic which just might get h...more

I can't explain why I didn't like Firewalker more. The characters are solid, the plot is solid, and the writing is solid. I even liked that Nash is quite a bit more likable this time around. Even with all of that, I had to really push myself to finish it. It was just missing that something that normally sucks me into a world. It could be that I don't find the romance between Janet and Mick exciting. I'd really rather see her with Nash, but then where would that leave Maya? Hmmm. Could it be that...more

This was a waste of time. The only reason it wasn't a colossal waste of time was that after 40% of the way through, i gave up and skimmed most of it. I am NOT putting this as a DNF because of all the minutes of my life I won't be able to get back.

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

Wow! Janet's powers are growing! A twisty turney read with lots of action!

It's been a while since I read Stormwalker which I loved so I can't explain why it's taken me two years to read the sequel. I guess all those prolific writers are to blame. :)

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

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

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

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

Although I enjoy this author's works under her nom de plume Jennifer Ashley especially The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie and Pride Mates, this book has almost reached the same enjoyability (hey I thought that would come up as a fake word!).

Janet's trying to manage the powers her mother has given her without turning to the dark side and it seems in between the "I love you"s Mick is trying to figure out whether to kill her or not. Now he's in trouble for not killing her. And there's a bunch of ot...more

Firewalker (Stormwalker, #2)Firewalker by Allyson James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Well I finished Firewalker (Stormwalker, Book 2) and really enjoyed it, the series improved in this book by the addition of some characters and the injection of a personality into the sheriff (who you kinda hated in book 1). The H needed the h a bit more and the writing was a bit better also, the main h character evolved a bit more and while her temper helped in a couple of situations it also led to a couple TSTL type situations which I found a...more

Janet Begay is a stormwalker, who can draw energy from a storm and use that power against evil. She finally learned to control that power, but the other inherited power from her evil mother is calling to her. It’s always trying to talk her into doing something she shouldn’t do and Janet is fighting hard to control this power too, but with all the threats on her life it seems impossible. Her new friend Coyote, who’s also a God, warns her to control that power soon or he will end it for her, even...more

“Hey, senorita, want to throw back some margaritas with me?"

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.”
