The Lovereading4Kids comment

The second book in the breathtaking ‘Worldwalker Trilogy’ leaps straight back into the action packed story which began in ‘Trial by Fire’. Back on her native world, Lily attempts to rebuild her life and her friendships, while a persistent FBI agent refuses to be reassured by the account of where Lily has been. As Lilian and events start to catch up and hound her, Lily makes a momentous decision. Josephine Angelini handles the romance between Lily and Rowan beautifully, it is most definitely tangible, but by no means cloying or overpowering. The parallel worlds are fascinating, the magic, with the blend of science and natural forces is different, yet almost touchable, good and evil are not fairytale distortions but murky, cloudy and confusing. ‘Firewalker’ is a believable, stimulating novel, grounded in the reality of friendships, love and trust, it really is a truly fabulous read. ~ Liz Robinson


Firewalker by Josephine Angelini

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.
