Publisher's Summary

Half-Navajo Janet Begay possesses extraordinary power that 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 she and Mick investigate mysterious disappearances, which Janet fears are tied to her mother's people, the mythical gods from beneath the earth. They are helped along the way by Coyote and Crow, but these shapeshifting gods have their own agendas.

    Story
    "Gods, Goddesses and Harleys"

    I was looking for a new story to listen to while driving back and forth to my in-laws about 3 hours away and stumbled on the fact that Jennifer Ashley (Highland Pleasures series) was writing alternative fiction under the Allyson James name. The fact that there were already 3 titles in the series with a 4th upcoming was an added bonus.

    This story moves right along right from the start and we meet most of the major characters in the first two chapters. Hillary Huber does a great job of differentiating the characters, and I really like what she does with them. Nash is a little strident, but the rest are just spot on. She really gets Maya's "up yours" attitude and conveys it with every word.

    In my opinion, the characters are well drawn and believable. They definitely make me want to rush to the Crossroads Motel and buy them a drink!

    My favorite scene in the book involves Janet, Maya and a bottle of tequila. You'll laugh, bite your nails and drive right past your exit just so you can keep on listening. Can't wait to hear the rest of the series. Thanks, Audible!

    Story
    "Story wasn't engaging"

    Janet was a daughter of a native american man and a white women "jane doe", no one knew. Being illegitimate or motherless, Janet was teased a lot in her tribe and ostracized. When she was an adult, she ran off to find herself. She met a man named Mick, climbed on their motorbikes and headed out of town.

    5 years later, she has returned home because she was asked to help find a missing girl named Amy. Amy's family had no body and no information, and they just to know whether their daughter was kidnapped or if she was dead. Returning home means that Janet Baguette has to deal with everything she had been running from, her community, her grandmother, her love for Mick, and finally her true identity as a Stormwalker.

    I can't say that I liked this story. It wasn't engaging, and it wasn't a story that I would ever read again. In fact, I kept looking to see how much time was left in the audiobook and was horrified that there was still over 5hrs to go. To go on with a series, there has to be something I care about or something I am curious about...and there isn't. I may read book 2 in the future, but not anytime soon.

    I will say the narrator did a good job with the various voices and her pace, but I just didn't connect with the heroine, heroine or any part of this story.

    "A Good Listen"

    I liked this one...and have had the e-book forever....not sure why I waited so long but. it took the audio being released to get my butt in gear to start it.

    Some of it was easy to figure out early on but there were still a few twists and turns that were surprising. The narration was great...can't wait for book 2

    Story
    "Fun ride into the southwest"
    Would you listen to Stormwalker again? Why?

    Yes it has a fun fantasy feel to it. The lead character had a dry humor I liked.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Ever wonder if evil really lies beneath us?


    Any additional comments?

    Should be in straight Fantasy where it belongs

    "Slow starter but all in all interesting story"

    I read all 3 in this series. Each book builds on the next and the story gets better. It doesn't take long to get through each book. Mixing native american folk lore into a newer timeline story was interesting. I would read more from this author.

    "Just mediocre"

    This was a very slow moving book. I was disappointed that it seemed to be an amalgamation of character, plot, and world building ideas from a lot of other popular paranormal series but added very little that was truly original. The narrator was pretty good but I still found myself skipping entire chapters just to get through the story.

    Story
    "Very Derivative Plot"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Stormwalker to be better than the print version?

    pretty good read, but throws in every supernatural character in a conglomeration of fantasy storytypes... this book starts out with Navahoe gods, then "enter the dragon" where the H... did that come from... ,moves on to newly created creatures and powers, etc.... there is not a pantheon that stays consistent.... the plotting is reasonable good however and after getting used to the smorgasbord of talent is interesting.... this is mostly a kitchen sink story so far.....


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no... there was enough variety for many listening sessions


    Any additional comments?

    I would not have stuck with this in print form....
