Publisher's Summary

For Seattle detective Joanne Walker, spring is about new beginnings. She’s mastered her shamanic abilities (mostly), survived a cannibalistic serial killer (barely), and now she’s facing the biggest challenge of her career—attending a dance concert with her sexy boss, Captain Michael Morrison. But when the performance—billed as transformative—actually changes her into a coyote, she and Morrison have bigger things to deal with.

And there’s more. Homeless people are disappearing, a mystical murder puts Joanne way out of her jurisdiction and with the full moon coming on, it’s looking like the killer is a creature that can’t possibly exist. But Jo could probably handle all of that, if one ordinary homicide hadn’t pushed her to the very edge.…

    I like UF, PRN and historical romances. Some of my favorite authors are Jeaniene Frost, Karen Marie Moning, Richelle Mead, Kim Harrison, Chloe Neil, Lisa Keypads & Julia Quinn. The list keeps growing every day :o)

    "Oh, my goddess, WONDERFUL!!!"
    What did you love best about Spirit Dances?

    I have to admit, I have read the Walker Papers multiple times, and every time I do (which is every time a new one comes out, and then whenever I feel a need for an upper) I get more out of them, and enjoy them even more than the last time.

    It is wholly admirable how Ms. Murphy has developed her characters through the series in a slow, methodical manner which allows you to grow to love them both individually, and as a group. I do have to disagree with the people who are wanting the


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spirit Dances?

    The dancer troupe and the meaning behind what they do. I could almost see, before the terrible moments of the ending, how they flew through the air and danced, could almost hear the music in my head.


    Have you listened to any of Gabra Zackman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, all the Walker Papers. She is always incredible. I don't read straight romance stories, I find them incredibly boring, and demeaning in that the woman is always some silly, spoiled, whiny, self-centred piece of work, waiting for some knight in shining armour to come along and


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of a member of the dance troupe. Someone giving, loving, and with that sort of freedom of spirit and unadulterated strength, being brought down through nothing but greed and pure evil. It was heartbreaking.


    Any additional comments?

    Start with Urban Shaman and read straight through. You won't regret it.

    Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.

    Story
    "Author wasted a Sexy Police Captain"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A faster pace and more dialogue between JoAnn and her Captain boss could have saved this story. He is sexy, but his character gets lost until chapter 25! I selected this book, my first for this author, based on the description of JoAnn and her Captain.


    What could C. E. Murphy have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Her humor is great, but too much useless description that brings no value to the story. No,you do not need to read her series in order. Good writing stands alone. This was a good story but needed a better editor or re write. If you are fan of this author, then this a good read. If you have not started with this author, I would not buy any of her stories based on how this was edited.


    Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

    Ms Zackman is a great reader. I purchased this book because she was the reader, but even she can not make up for poor writing or editing.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I forced myself to finish this story as I did not want to miss any dialogue between JoAnn and her Captain. This story had so much potential, wolf/sexy captain, but too much description filler which forced the reader to perform at a slow pace.


    Any additional comments?

    I could not even consider another book from this author. What a waste of a sexy police captain!
