I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
This series follows a reluctant shaman, named Joanne Walkingstick, as she stumbles along the four paths to enlightenment saving the world along the way. The protagonist has a hilarious inner voice which will keep the reader smiling as s/he explores adventures with the Wild Hunt and more. Great writing; great reading. This is the final installment. Even though this isn't the best book in the series, this is a great series.
I loved, loved, loved this series and this book was the perfect end. There just aren't words to describe it.
being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.
i liked the book overall. it had some slow parts bit overall was good. always nice when good wins and bad creates havoc.
like the female hetro overall and I will probably read the other books now also.
I was worried that because it was a harlaquin book it would be sappy romance...but it was just the right blend of action, drama, and romance.
Great Series. In this most recent journey, as is appreciated, the author wove a tapestry between worlds, created enough fantasy to be believable, created joy and sorrow, and missed friends... There's room, in the hearts of the remains chosen family, particularly the heart of a special young woman (in addition to Walker) for more weaving to come!
I enjoyed the entire series and am glad the author have it a great ending. This was the only Audible book series that made me buy extra credits in order to finish the series as I could not wait. Looking forward to reading other books by her
Fantasy mystery humor
Gary's past. No spoilers
All were strong
Gary at the start of the book
JoAnn Walker has evolved as a Shaman and has finally got Mike as her man forever. I was really said to see one of the characters demise but it was a fitting ending. Ms. Murphy thanks and please tell me you have more books coming especially if she runs into Jane Yellowrock again.
I'd recommend Shaman Rises, and the rest of the Walker Papers, to anyone who loves urban fiction. Shaman Rises is a non-stop thrill ride from the word "go", in which all questions are answered and all paths come full circle.
