Unfinished-Stormwalker by Allyson James

Read For:
ROR Winter Challenge
RYOB Challenge
Fantasy Challenge

Janet Begay is a Stormwalker, capable of wielding the raw elemental power of nature, a power that threatens to overwhelm her. Only her lover, Mick, is able to calm the storm within her-even as their passion reaches unimaginable heights of ecstasy. 

But when an Arizona police chief's daughter is taken by a paranormal evil, they find themselves venturing where no human can survive-for only together can they overcome the greatest danger they've ever faced.

My review:

 I read, or tried to read Stormwalker by Allyson James (Jennifer Ashley). I quit this book halfway in-very disappointing as I normally like this authors works. In a word, there was nothing original about this story.
The same old "supposedly uber tough Harley riding heroine who, of course, must constantly be rescued by the mysterious, uber hot, alpha, ancient hero, who the heroine knows little about, but still manages to end up in bed with every few pages" UGH-the overproduction of paranormal romance/urban fantasy these last few years has, in my opinion, lead to an overproduction of formulaic tripe.
How about a heroine who is strong but drives a regular car, holds down a regular job, and whose wardrobe consists of something besides skin tight leather maybe?
