Firewalker by Josephine Angelini

Firewalker by Josephine Angelini
Reviewed August 12, 2015
Goodreads Description:
Worlds divide, magic slays, and love lies in the second book of Josephine Angelini’s The Worldwalker Trilogy.
"You think I’m a monster, but my choices, as ruthless as they seem, are justified."
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!
Bit disappointed by it after the first book.
But lets not start with negatives. I liked the Lily was back and with Rowan. I love the world building that Angelini does, that's always a tough thing to do in my opinion, make another world seem possibly and like you're there with the characters, seeing it all without a question. The story itself is very ... addicting? I cant think of the proper word. Like the reader gets really into it.
Now onto what I didn't really like about it. I didn't like the way that Angelini kept the secrets that Lily wouldn't tell Rowan, I felt as if  Rowan became not so ... THERE as he was in the first book.
And i felt as if this was kind of from the very beginning. The whole like... lacking romance part of the book.
Maybe because it focused more on action than it did on romance?
I was hoping for romance xD
that cliffhanger though!
Recommend it?
mmmm just brace yourself that its not as good as the first book.
OR if youre hoping for more romance, this is for you.
