Book Review: Firewalker
Book 2 in the Worldwalker Trilogy
AUTHOR: Josephine Angelini
PUBLISHED: September 1rst, 2015
PREMISE: Lily and Rowan are now back in her world. But that doesn't mean the parallel universe they left is done with them...
MY REVIEW: Whether or not you ever read this will probably depend on how much you liked Trial by Fire. That book was a bit hit or miss for some people. I've seen so many mixed reactions to it.
Firewalker...is basically more of the first book. So, if you were one who the book missed...it's probably best that you don't bother. Me, I'm an in betweener on this series. There are so many things I like about it, but at the same time there are issues in it as there are with most YA books. The good does far outweigh the bad though.
This was an all around solid sequel. I do think it suffered from middle of a trilogy syndrome a lot (particularly in the really stalled middle bit), but for the most part it kept up the pace and entertainment and there's a massive cliff-hanger at the end that will keep me coming back for the next book.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of Trial by Fire, Fantasy fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five parallel universes
