The Worldwalker Trilogy #2
Releases September 1st from Feiwel & Friends
Lily is back in her own universe, and she's ready to start a new life with Rowan by her side. True, she almost died in the Pyre that fueled their escape from New Salem, and must hide her magic for the safety of everyone she cares about, but compared to fighting the Woven, the monstrous creatures inhabiting the alternate Salem, life is looking pretty good.
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 will force her to come back by doing away with the ones she loves.
Picking up right where Trial By Fire left off, Firewalker is another sexy, fast-paced, heartbreaking thrill ride from internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini!
I absolutely adored last year's Trial by Fire, so I'm very, very ready to get my grabby little hands on this second installment. I had a few concerns when reading the first book that we'd get an epic love triangle situation between Lily, Rowan, and Tristan (either version of him), but I was pleasantly surprised by the way Lily handled everything. I have high hopes that she'll be as firm in her feelings in this book as she was in the first now that she's back in her world and will likely come face to face with the version of Tristan she'd loved for years before everything changed. SO MUCH TENSION! Rowan is the guy for me though–wait, no, the guy for Lily, not me ;-)–so I'm excited to see how things progress there.
Plus, Lillian is the most terrifying type of villain–the kind who's so convinced they're doing what's right they can't see how far down the road to Hell their path of good intentions has led them–and I look forward to peeling back more of her layers!
