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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 2/18/2014

    " This was a fast, fun read. I really enjoyed the mix of Celtic and Native American beliefs, including my favorite - the Trickster, Coyote - as Walker's spirit guide. I am eager to read the next volume. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Sadler | 2/14/2014

    " This was a fun read. I loved the shaman cop idea, even though I found it a little hard to believe her co-workers would accept her supernatural abilities so easily. I really liked her 70-something, cab driver side-kick Gary. I did get a little annoyed with her constant exhaustion. And her clumsiness. I understand that she has to have some flaws, but she seemed to fall down or run into something or someone every ten pages or so. That and the descriptions of how tired she was just got repetitive after a while. Otherwise, I really liked the story, even with all of the mythology, which I usually don't like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/8/2014

    " I really liked this book. It wasn't at all deep or philosophical, but it was just a good story. It is the story of Joanne Walker, a police mechanic who discovers that she is a shaman who only has three days to save the world from the Wild Hunt. The combination of Celtic and Native American mythology really worked well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sasha | 2/5/2014

    " This is one of those books/series I kept seeing in the department store and thinking that the cover looked cool., but I've learned to be picky about the urban fantasy stories I pick up because I simply haven't loved them all. This one however, I finally gave in an bought, and I loved it. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series. Can;t wait to see what happens next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 2/1/2014

    " New author to me, Ms. Murphy! I like this new series featuring Joanne. She is one screwed up girl. She has had a hard life and her hating of anything supernatural is kind of funny. This is a good new series for me to start. I can't wait for the ones following. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judi | 1/28/2014

    " The begining went fast good dialogue, charactors humour. The plot got muddy 2/3ds of the way thru and the end was convoluted and cliche (I know doesnt seem possible but what can I say?) It was still readable and I will check out the next book by Ms Murphy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dmw0325 | 1/23/2014

    " I almost gave it 2, but it had some really interesting elements. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/3/2014

    " A very good series.A little unusual for me, since I haven't read anything about shamans before,but I liked it.I'm waiting to see what happens in the next book in the series,Raven calls,since the last book ended with a clifhanger.4 stars from me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Moonlighthaven2004 | 12/27/2013

    " I started to read her other books and they weren't that amazing. But Urban Shaman steps up to plate and goes to a whole new writing level for her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 12/24/2013

    " Really fun, with lots of humor. I'm also a complete sucker for anything involving the Wild Hunt, so this is a natural for me. Definitely getting more in this series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 10/11/2013

    " There definitely lots of comedy and action in this book. Since this is the first book, there's a lot of storytelling...and a few things that leave me confuse. I don't understand the way she feels about her mother, when she actually went thru a similar scenario. Good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 10/2/2013

    " Good book. Fast and fluffy...just the way I like them:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 9/30/2013

    " I enjoyed this read. It moves pretty fast. I like the mix of Celtic and Native American lore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 10/2/2012

    " Joanne Walker (as she prefers to be known) is a kick-ass cop/mechanic with attitude. She gets involved in the shaman world - much to her own dismay and stubborn refusal to recognise. Love her colleagues-Billy and ooo yeah her boss Morrison, as well as gary the cabbie. Great stuff "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vikki Annabel | 8/7/2012

    " Pretty good, want to read more in the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jensownzoo | 5/24/2012

    " I loved this book. The author imbued the character with just my sense of humor. Also really liked the supporting characters and the banter between them. Some of the premise/background story was a little hokey but it doesn't seem to play as large a role in subsequent novels in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 4/14/2012

    " While not currently among my favorite books, I liked the focus on mythology (both celtic and native american). Its another Seattle based novel, with the exciting climax at the Seattle center. I think I would have given the book a 3.5 stars if available. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 3/18/2012

    " I found this book to be very confusing..... The supernatural aspects did not add up in my mind and the ending was awful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gennielc | 2/12/2012

    " Very confusing, but it was still enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann aka Iftcan | 11/29/2011

    " A very good first book in a series (fbias). I didn't notice most of the usual "fbias" flaws but did like the characters. Will be reading more by this author. "

    " this book was a little slow but had a really good story behind it i felt really bead for all the past hurt that joanne endured and i hope her and morrison realize their feelings soon "

    " Les idées pour l'histoire sont sympas mais j'ai vraiment eu du mal à accrocher. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 4/22/2011

    " A good book that moved well. I thought that the celtic and native american connection was interesting. "
