Stormwalker (stormwalker #1) By Allyson James

Book One of a the Stormwalker series. Allyson James also writes as NYT Bestselling author Jennifer Ashley

Half-Navajo Janet Begay possesses extraordinary power which is tied to the storms that waft across the desert. The only person who can control her when she's caught in the storm's evocative power is Mick, a dark-haired, blue-eyed biker Janet can't seem to touch with her powers. He can wield fire and not get burned, and Janet's never sure where he goes when they're not together.

Together they investigate mysterious disappearances, which Janet fears are tied to her mother's people, the mythical gods from below the earth. They are helped along the way by Coyote and Crow, but these shapeshifting gods have their own agendas.

Rhonda's review:

 FUN, FUN, FUN!!!!! 3.5 STARS
This book was a lot of fun, I liked Janet our heroine. Smart, and strong yet a little vulnerable too. Janet is a Stormwalker able to harness and use the power of storms. Her mysterious boyfriend Mick is a badass Firewalker and he's very much in love with Janet, willing to sacrifice his own life for hers. Maya a tough girl electrician who is working for Janet, they have a very strained relationship. I loved the bantering between Maya and Janet. I really liked the Native American folklore references, we have skinwalkers, nightwalkers, and a magic mirror that was very funny. This story holds a lot of promise for the coming books in this series.
The only real problem I had with this book was Mick. Since the story is told in the 1st person POV, we don't get Mick's POV. It took me a almost 2/3 of the book to really get a good feel for him.
There's mystery, action, paranormal activity, and a love story here, and I look forward to Firewalker coming later this year. and getting to know these characters even more.

The 1st person POV takes some getting used to doesn't it? Sounds interesting though. I just picked up her dragon series earlier this week. Had no idea she had this one out!
