Mountain Echoes (2013)
language
English
series
4.3 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Mountain Echoes follows Jo as she returns "home" to North Carolina on the heels of her adventures in Ireland. She reconnects with her father, high school friends (acquaintances? enemies?), and her son. As in each of the novels as we move forward, Jo is more in control of her po...
No Dominion (2013)
language
English
4.23 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This is mostly Gary's side of the Urban Shaman series, but it includes short stories from several viewpoints. The only reason that I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that it does require you to have read the series for it to make sense - it's a series of snapshots of the events f...
Wayfinder (2011)
language
English
3.64 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This duology had an intriguing premise and a fast-paced plot, but it was just not as good (imo) as the Inheritor's Cycle. The truth-as-music metaphor gets stretched way too far in places, bogging the story down to the point where I had to go back and re-read whole sections more t...
Easy Pickings (2000)
language
English
3.96 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I listened to the audio version.I have always love Jane Yellowrock ( Faith Hunter). This is a collaboration between FH and CE Murphy (whom I have never read).Am not really happy with witchy magic, (in urban fantasy) because they (the witches) can get out of insurmountable problem...
Demon Hunts (2010)
language
English
series
4.13 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: These books just keep getting better. Coyote is back and this time in the flesh. The really interesting part is that Joanne gets to see him with all of the human frailty. She sees that while he is her teacher, in many ways she has outstripped him in power. While he was gone, ...
Raven Calls (2000)
language
English
series
4.15 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Raven Calls, while a reasonably good story, wasn't as engaging as the previous novels in the Walker Papers series. Jo is in Ireland this time, and is, once again, battling inner demons while fighting the bad guy of the week. We get a bit more insight into her mother's family as...
Truthseeker (2010)
language
English
3.5 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This book was really hard to go through. It's too wordy and it takes too long for things to happen. A couple of pages can go by without much happening. I'm not sure if I mistook what I thought it would be and that's why I didn't like it, but it wasn't one I enjoyed.I didn't th...
Spirit Dances (2011)
language
English
series
4.25 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Spirit Dances is book six in Murphy's Walker Papers series and I have to say this series continues to be rock solid entertainment. Watching Joanne's journey from reluctant shaman to a force to be reckoned with has been great. In this instalment we see Jo as we have hardly seen ...
Mountain Echoes (Luna) (2013)
language
English
series
4.3 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This is a four star book for readers who have been following the series. While it has all the typical earmarks of the series: solid writing, fast plotting, good characterizations, snappy banter, and a particularly great magic system, this particular book's big payoff is in the re...
Shaman Rises (2014)
language
English
series
4.23 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: With the last book in the series, Shaman Joanne Walker must finally confront The Master, an entity who has been causing her problems for months now through various avatars and is looking to be brought into this realm. It needs a host body. That’s just one of two rather large ha...
Tragač za istinom (2012)
language
English
3.5 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Lara Jansen has always been able to sense when someone isn't telling the truth and another consequence of this ability is that she is unable to lie - whether to herself of anyone else. When her best friend tries to set her up on a date, she finds herself drawn to him, yet she kno...
Spirit Dances (Luna) (2013)
language
English
series
4.25 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is the sixth book in the Walker Papers series. I need to go back and start at the beginning, although the author did explain what was happening, if you have not read the other books. Joanne Walker is a Irish/Cherokee shaman. Something happened to her and she got a lot of pow...
The Pretender's Crown (2009)
language
English
3.33 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Compared to the first book, this one both disappointed and met expectations. If the first book was a tale of courtly intrigue, this felt a little more like (I hate to make a comparison to such a great book) A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, full of war games and clashes be...
