Goodreads Description:
 Even for a techno-shaman, a kachina in the bedroom isn't exactly part of the drill. When Olivia Lawson wakes to find one towering over her, she panics. A Hopi god visiting the real world isn't just wrong, it's impossible. Or is it?
Soon Olivia learns that the kachina is the least of her worries. As she struggles to save her clients, clashes with other shamans, and fends off the attacks of real-world vigilantes, Olivia finds herself in the destructive path of a malevolent ancient force intent on leaving the spiritual realm to conquer this one.
Left with few options, Olivia is forced to defy centuries of shaman prohibitions. As she and her allies risk everything in their bid for survival, Olivia ultimately learns that the rules are there for a reason and that breaking them has a terrible cost.

My Review:
  I haven't read too many books about Shaman but the idea has always fascinated me which is why when the author asked me if I wanted to read and review her book I jumped at the chance.

This is just one of those stories that is so well done it grabs you from the get go. It will immediately capture your attention and just draw you in.

It was so well written. Everything just flowed together so nicely that it was a really easy read and one that I found myself having a hard time putting down.

The characters are unique and original and completely unforgettable, in fact the whole world and storyline that Green created is pretty unforgettable and craftily done.

I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves something unique and fun in the urban fantasy genre.


  1. This definitely is different. I have always been interrsted in Shamans as well, but unfortunately don't know mich about them. This sounds like a well written, fun intro. Thanks for sharing!

  2. It really was a very creative fun look into the genre and the second book was even better!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting Heidi! :)
