Publisher's Summary

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.

Urban Shaman - Light Fantasy

In response to the reviewer who complained this was a "Harlequin-like" novel - well Luna is the new fantasy line from Harlequin. The books are supposed to be about strong female characters in fantasy settings. Harlequin novels are good novels more often than some would like to admit. And this novel is no exception.

Urban Shaman follows a mechanic who becomes a cop due to her particular circumstances. It is also about coping with dual - but similar heritages. Something a lot of people don't realize is that the Cherokee and Scots-Irish melded so well in Appalachia because their cultural beliefs were so similar! (I'm talking about first wave settlers.)

This book is exactly what it claims to be - an urban fantasy from Luna. And it is well-worth listening to. I do enjoy the narrator and wish she had come back for the second book, but, Gabra Zackman is also an excellent storyteller.

Overly descriptive...

I love chick fantasy, but this book was a waste of time. Author got lost in the descriptions of just about everything. With one had on the keyboard, and one hand in the thesaurus, the author spend literally pages describing dream sequences that didn't make sense. Ever had a friend tell you about her "weird dream last night" and then go and on and nothing made any sense to you (let alone to her) - this was it!! Want to know 15 other words for "purple," then read this book.

Narator was a little annoying with her "bloke" voice, but otherwise good naration.
