Publisher Comments:

In this follow-up to "Urban Shaman," Joanne Walker hasn't learned much about her shamanic abilities. But when she accidentally unleashes demons on Seattle, Joanne realizes she should have learned more about controlling her powers. Original.

Review:

"Joanne Walker, a likable young Seattle beat cop, continues to learn the ropes of her even more dangerous job as a shaman in Murphy's spirited second urban fantasy (after 2005's Urban Shaman). After a fencing lesson at the university, Joanne stumbles on the body of Cassandra Tucker, a 20-year-old junior, in the showers. The autopsy report states that Cassandra's death was due to a heart condition, but Joanne suspects otherwise. In her role as shaman, Joanne investigates 'the Dead Zone,' a place between life and death, while her earthside sleuthing leads to a coven that in recognition of her special abilities invites her to take Cassandra's place in opening a passage between worlds for Virissong, an ancient Native American spirit who's expected to end a local heat wave and global warming. Unfortunately, if not surprisingly, Joanne discovers after several nightmarish and somewhat bloated magical misadventures that Virissong is one nasty lying serpent." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Joanne Walker hasn't spent much time learning about her shamanic abilitiesor even honing her police detective skills. Still, when she finds a young woman's body lying in the university gym shower, she can't resist taking one quick peek into the astral realm. But one peek leads to something very dangerous, and soon Joanne's caught up between some real-world witches whowant to set right a wrong done ages ago and an astral-world search for herspirit guide. The ballte lines are being drawn and once more Joanne isn't going to be able to ignore her destiny.
