What made the experience of listening to Olivia Lawson Techno-Shaman Series the most enjoyable?
I am fascinated by this new world of tehno shamans. It’s like going on an educational roller coaster ride. The characters are all intriguing and I want to hear more from each of them. There were a few twists that I couldn’t see coming. I always appreciate authors who can surprise me!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Livvy! She's a kind-hearted woman maneuvering her way through uncharted territory. She’s down-to earth, willing to explore new options, always wanting the best for her clients and friends, and still seeking her own happiness.
What about Celia Aurora de Blas’s performance did you like?
I am delighted to have a found a new narrator that I enjoy. Celia Aurora de Blas is talented – pleasant, straightforward narration with well-differentiated character voices. I especially appreciate the female characters' voices.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
More character than moment: I liked hearing each of the characters come to life in Book 1. All of the ladies (and yes, SK, also!) were well-drawn by the author and well-interpreted by the narrator.
Any additional comments?
I'm drinking these books like they're water. On to Book 4!

it lacked the native American feel I hoped for till the third book. the main character while predictably the world's most powerful shaman, is such without any effort or background. in fact her troubles stem from a ridiculous lack of knowledge because of the imposed separation between shamans. this frustrated my main expectation to delve into traditional shamanism.
the second star I took away is because of the unenjoyable magic system. it's simply call upon her helpers power and what needs to be done is done. it's basic, there are a few rules and it would have been forgivable if the rules weren't completely ignored in the third book.
but aside from those disappointments the story was average, whatever twists might pop up are negated by predictable or otherwise obvious devices. though saying that I am still left wondering to the back ground of one character in particular. sadly I will probably be left to speculate as I do not plan on continuing with this series
