Shaman Rises takes you on a wild ride.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

Book Description Publication Date: July 1, 2014 Joanne Walker has two choices: Defeat the enemy…or lose her soul trying For over a year, Joanne has been fighting the Master—the world’s most abiding evil entity. She’s sacrificed family, friendships, even watched potential futures fade away…and now the Master is bringing the final battle to Joanne’s beloved Seattle. Lives will be lost as the repercussions of all Joanne’s final transformation into her full Shamanic abilities come to her doorstep. Before the end, she’ll mourn, rejoice—and surrender everything for the hope of the world’s survival. She’ll be a warrior and a healer. Because she is finally a Shaman Rising. “The twists and turns will have readers shaking their heads while devouring the next page.” —USA TODAY on Raven Calls

C.E. Murphy  does it again with SHAMAN RISES. She takes you on  wild ride that leaves you gasping and wondering what the next page will reveal. This book has non-stop action, with a well-developed story line and character development. Joanne  is a SHAMAN RISING coming into her own finally getting a grip on his SHAMAN gig. When she thinks that she has no more to give, she finds that one little spark that gives her the reason to defeat the bad guy. We start out with Gary calling Jo(Joanne) and telling her that his wife Annie is not dead, but very much alive. He also needs her help in keeping her alive and out of THE MASTER’S hands. When she gets to Seattle and meets Gary in Annie’s hospital room, she has to reach Annie in her soul garden by spirit walking. When she gets there her garden is infused with this oily black goo, which is THE MASTER trying to get to her. Jo locates her wrapped in a cocoon with a vortex above her trying to get to her. This is only the one of many fights that she has in trying to keep THE MASTER from taking over the body of the one’s she loves.  SHAMAN RISES has passion, heartache and finally love, but what will defeat the THE MASTER. Well, pick-up your copy of SHAMAN RISES in paperback or e-book. You will be glad you did. I give SHAMAN RISES 5/5 stars.  I HATE TO SEE THIS SERIES ENDING,BUT I CAN ALWAYS READ IT OVER AND OVER. I RECOMMEND SHAMAN RISES BY C.E. MURPHY TO EVERYONE.ALSO IF YOU HAVE NOT READ ANY OF THE OTHERS, I URGE YOU TO READ THEM. URBAN SHAMAN IS A GREAT START TO THE SERIES. HERE ARE THE BOOKS IN ORDER:

Book Description

         Publication Date:         May 27, 2009

Joanne Walker has three days to learn to use her shamanic powers and save the world from the unleashed Wild Hunt.
No worries. No pressure. Never mind the lack of sleep, the perplexing new talent for healing herself from fatal wounds, or the cryptic, talking coyote who appears in her dreams.
And if all that’s not bad enough, in the three years Joanne’s been a cop, she’s never seen a dead body–but she’s just come across her second in three days.
It’s been a bitch of a week.
And it isn’t over yet.

I loved this book and series. It is a great start to an urban fantasy series. It blends native myths and Celtic mythology  in a way that draws you into the book and k

 

eeps you wanting more. The story starts out with Joanne coming home from Ireland from her mother’s funeral that she has not seen since she was a baby, when she sees a woman being attacked from the plane. She tries to let someone know what she saw but no one believes that she saw it from the plane. So she investigates it herself and meets the Wild Hunt. Here is where the action really takes off and it is a roller coaster ride from then on. She battles the master of the Wild Hunt Cerunnuos and almost dies. She has to use her Shaman abilities to heal herself and also try to master her new-found abilities before she gets killed. She also has to find out why the Wild Hunt has  gone wrong and correct it. This book had a well-developed story line and characters. I give Urban Shaman 5/5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW FOR “MOUTAIN ECHOES” BY C.E. MURPHY

Product DetailsThis is Book 8 of THE WALKER PAPERS. There is going to be one more book in this series called SHAMAN RISES.

Joanne Walker goes back to North Carolina to help find her father who has gone missing.  She also meets the son she gave up for adoption and left behind.  She finds out there is more going on at the reservation that would be enough for any shaman to face. Joanne is going to have to call on every aspect of her shaman powers to unstitched the past to weave a better future for everyone.

I love this series and I hate that it is almost at its end. Joanne Walker is always pushing herself beyond her limits, to where she almost gets herself killed. In one example, makes her car Petite fly across a chasm while escaping helicopters. That is such a wild ride. I love this scene, so I give it a 5/ 5 stars.
