She was the only Magic Born to ever escape the Rangers. Now there's a ten-million-dollar bounty for her return.

Trancehacker Tuyet Caron could have left New Corinth for good, but instead uses her magic and risks her life on a daily basis to help the Magic Born. She's been careful to avoid capture, but a careless glance at a video camera brings her face to face with the Ranger who let her go.

Captain Dale Hayes let Tuyet walk away once, but he won't make that mistake again. When faced with the ultimate choice, however, he chooses her with barely a thought. But that also means siding with the Magic Born and becoming a fugitive in the eyes of the law.

Tuyet and Dale plan to flee, but are caught in a deadly riot that kills innocent people. Outraged, the pair vows to bring an end to the Magic Laws, regardless of what that means for their own safety.
This book tied up just about all of the loose ends in the series.  At the end we have a fairly solid idea of where the world is headed and our people are happy.  Firewall is really all about getting the world back to a place where Magic Born can live freely and are treated like human beings.

Center to this whole resolution are Tuyet (Snow) and Dale Hayes.  They have quite a bit of history between them but now seem to be on opposite sides of the law.  Tuyet would do anything to avoid seeing him again, but Hayes has hunted her down and now he needs to figure out what to do with her.

Their romance is really more of a re-kindling and learning how to trust each other again as opposed to a new one.  We even get to see their past through a series of flashbacks - while I enjoyed seeing their past, it came up at awkward times in the story that were just a little distracting.  There was also soooo much action going on that at time the romance got just a tad lost.

I really loved the characters and their romance, but it got a little lost in the story of what was going on everywhere else.  The city and the riots were a character unto themselves and there was just a lot going on all over the place as everything was getting resolved.
