Book Description



Something wicked this way comes…

Suddenly, being bitten by a werewolf is the least of Joanne Walker's problems.

Her personal life in turmoil, her job as a cop over, she's been called to Ireland by the magic within her. And though Joanne's skills have grown by leaps and bounds, Ireland's magic is old and very powerful….

In fact, this is a case of unfinished business. Because the woman Joanne has come to Ireland to rescue is the woman who sacrificed everything for Joanne—the woman who died a year ago. Now, through a slip in time, she's in thrall to a dark power and Joanne must battle darkness, time and the gods themselves to save her.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fans of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files novels and the works of urban fantasists Charles de Lint and Tanya Huff should enjoy this fantasy/mystery's cosmic elements. A good choice."

-Library Journal on Thunderbird Falls

"Tightly written and paced, [Coyote Dreams] has a compelling, interesting protagonist, whose struggles and successes will captivate new and old readers alike."

– RT Book Reviews

"Murphy's fourth Walker Papers offering is another gripping, well-written tale of what must be the world's most reluctant-and stubborn-shaman."

– RT Book Reviews on Walking Dead

2.0 out of 5 stars Crushed by the Baggage of Previous Installements. March 8, 2012
By Gerard
Format:Paperback
Raven Calls suffers from the same problem that many paranormal series fall into, it is crushed under all of the different crud left over from previous books. It is burdened by the accumulated buildup of all the paranormal beings, explanations, characters and circumstances of the previous installments, including all the ones that were invented just to get around the limitations of earlier books and situations. And when the main character, Joanne, flies to Ireland, rather than take the opportunity to be free of some of that accumulation, rather than try to wash some of it off even if only for a while, C.E. Murphy just brings it all forward. And Joanne tells us about it, over and over again, in detail, and then just piles on some more.

Raven Calls starts out excitingly enough with Joanne Walker suffering from a fresh werewolf bite her healing power can't cure. She takes a desperate, spur of the moment trip to Ireland to seek a cure, risking the possibility she'll turn into a werewolf during the airline flight. Wow. But then the excitement comes crashing down. When she arrives in Ireland, there is Gary, her friend the ancient cab driver, mysteriously there already, all purpose plot filler. Gary. Again. Just there. Groan. Plot Spackle. Just spread it on anywhere the plot might need to be glossed over. And from then on the baggage just piles on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need an amazing read and series? March 27, 2012
Format:Paperback
I may have been at a little disadvantaged here as I haven't read this series from the beginning, but I really enjoyed reading this book. The Walker Paper series follows Joanne Walker, a mechanic, a now ex-police officer after being bitten by a werewolf and an Irish Shaman, with gifts that she doesn't let loose with until she needs to for survival.

Raven Calls opens with Joanne feeling compelled to head to Ireland; to confront her past and face her future. However, she won't be alone as her former police boss and on hold love interest Mike Morrison sends Joanne's BFF and gruff cabbie Gary Muldoon to Dublin to try to keep her out of trouble. The two take-off on an amazing adventure fraught with mystery and danger around every corner.

I want to say more about Raven Calls, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I loved this book and now I'm definitely going to go back and read through the whole series. How didn't I know about this series earlier?

There is a lot of mythology and background that makes the book somewhat confusing if you haven't read the previous books. Although with saying that I found learning about the lore, legends and history were quite fun. Many parts of the book had me smirking and laughing! I love that in a book, it's the easiest way to get me hooked on a series.

This is a must read series and this book is an electrifying read! Grab it and start it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice edition to the series. April 7, 2012
By erin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ok. I have been anticipating this book ever since I finished the last one. Ms. Murphy's series is fantastic and addicting and always seem to end on cliffhangers! A pet peeve with any other author, but I guess I'm willing to not hold it against this author since I love her series so much. That being said, I left the note that I had jotted down when I was first began the book, b/c it was what I was feeling at the time and felt strongly enough to stop what I was doing and write it down.

Once again, Joanne is hurtling feet first into danger and things unknown, at least to her. Her loyal and very entertaining sidekick, Gary, is along for the ride. We catch up with Joanne literally hours after the last book ended and she returns to Ireland to finally face her destiny and learn the truth about her mother and her powers. And boy, did she ever! I never go into plot detail with these reviews I do b/c part of the joy of reading is discovering these things first. And part of the charm of this series is that we are along for the ride as Joanne learns through trial and error, just what exactly it means to be a Shaman.

What I did enjoy most about this book was the character growth that Joanne experiences. She is maturing and finally accepting her powers and seemingly her destiny. While she experienced maturity and growth in every book, we finally see what a fully accepting and open minded Joanne is capable of. Her abilities aren't infallible but boy are they awesome! I greatly enjoyed Joanne as Kick Ass Shaman and I was not disappointed at all by the movements of this latest edition to the series. And I also loved that we finally! learn about Joanne's mother. And we finally get some closure on the issues that Joanne had with her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Continuation of a great series! March 13, 2012
By Shaiha
Format:Paperback
When I read the dedication in this book, I was rather worried that it was the last in the series. And this is a series that I have fallen with since the first book which was set in Seattle. RAVEN CALLS is set in Ireland but it has the same magic to the writing that holds sway over me.

What really sets this book apart from the rest of the series is the growth that Joanne does. She has always fought herself and others when it comes to learning and accepting herself. Now to keep Gary alive and to get back to the man she loves, she has quit that bad habit.

We also get to meet more of her family in Ireland and learn more of her mother. We are also introduced to Irish mythology in a new light. And it is quite an interesting light at that.

I do recommend this book to all readers of the paranormal. It is possible to read it as a stand alone book however you will feel that you are missing a lot. Because of that, I did reduce down my rating somewhat. I do rate this book at a 3.8.

***I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. No monies have or will exchange hands.
