Editorial Reviews

Review

"I read it all in one sitting, late into the night. It is really fantastic. I don't know if she sent out queries but whoever didn't snap this up was a fool." - Fangs, Wands, & Fairy Dust

"Fun & Fast Pasted Story. Had to go get the next & can't wait for the week end!" - Anonymous Reviewer at Barnes & Noble

"The storyline in this book was interesting, and at times I really just couldn't put it down. There were also several twists at the end that I really didn't see coming. Overall, a new and interesting idea, with a well-thought out plot." - Sarah Elizabeth's Bookshelf

"In the face of an ancient force, Olivia is against the wall and must break all the rules to stop a spiritual beast from conquering our reality. Shaman Healer Heretic is a fast paced read in an original setting, recommended." - Midwest Book Review

A Kachina, Sumerian gods, spirit helpers, shamans, the multiverse, and an orange cat named Nacho. What is not to love about this book? The story focuses around a modern-day techno shaman named Olivia Lawson, Livvy for short, who is just trying to make ends meet while helping those in need. You see, Livvy has a gift, she is a techno shaman. She travels to the multiverse finding lost or trapped souls, and helping them find their way back. When a Kachina enters not only the real world, but her bedroom, Livvy soon learns something is very wrong in the multiverse, and she must find a way to make it right. This is a fast paced story that keeps you in suspense up until the end. The Author has created a rich and full of life set of characters that makes the story seem real.

I learned of this author through the endless sea of tweets drifting across the net. As a fan of Urban fantasy I purchased a copy and I am so glad I did.The plot is well thought out and it is full of twists and turns that will keep you second guessing through out. It's obvious from the start the author put a lot of care into the people, creatures and gods portrayed in the story. Her bio states she was a former archaeologist, it is probably this knowledge that makes the world she creates so real and accurate. My only complaint was that there were a lot of chapters 79 total, I would have prefered there be less chapters but longer in length, but that is just my personal preference. I highly recommend this book.

Shaman, Healer, Heretic / B004TEYS3S

This is an incredibly original excerpt, and it hooked me almost immediately - the beginning is incredibly shocking and memorable. The image of waking up to find an ethereal spirit in your room playing music and setting off painful blue sparks is immediately burned on the reader's memory is a very visceral way - I'm fairly certain I've never read anything quite like this. Furthermore, I'm incredibly impressed with the pacing and how well details and backstory are doled out over the piece - a great job has been done trusting the reader and not succumbing to the temptation of a major "info-dump" at the beginning.

I really like how the segue from the spirit-in-the-bedroom to life on the daily-shaman-job is so well-done and doesn't feel forced. The shaman job details are at least as interesting as the spirit and it's very hard to pull that off - to move from the magical to the mundane without disappointing the reader by the switch. I love the overall characterization of all the characters, including the ancillary ones at the home of the stricken woman - really everything about this excerpt is extremely insightful and well-done.

I was so thrilled to see that your novel is available in self-published form - I went ahead and bought that now so that I can finish the story. Thank you!

A novel that springs to life right from the start, M. Terry Green's Shaman, Healer, Heretic introduces the idea of a techno-shaman using technology rather than drugs to access the mysterious worlds of Native American mythology. The author resists any urge to over-explain, bringing readers up to speed through the protagonist's very natural thoughts about her rather curious healing profession. A former medical student, Livvy uses her shamanic skills to rescue lost souls and care for those whose ailments can't be addressed by modern medicine. And she does it all very convincingly.

But a kachina appearing in her bedroom isn't meant to happen. Soon other things are invading the middleworld and breaking bonds in the underworld. Life on the edge seems almost ready to tip over the edge. And Livvy, led by the curious kachina, might just be a shaman's only hope.

Fast-paced, brightly up-to-date with nicely interwoven mythology and a genuine touch of modern medicine too, the story pulls readers into Livvy's heresy, brings fascinatingly different shamanic characters together on a common quest, and tells a pleasingly complete story in a world that's perfectly prepared to uphold a series.

I enjoyed the author's willingness not to tell everything--enough to keep the reader intrigued, to respect the reader's intelligence, and to leave scope for further tales. How did Livvy end up as a shaman? How did shamans end up using technology? How do different views of the otherworlds combine? Ah, there's so much still to learn and I know I shall enjoy reading more.

Disclosure: I received a free ecopy of this novel from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Livvy is a techno-shaman. What is that, you may ask? Instead of smoking peyote or going into a meditative state to reach the otherside, she dons a pair of 3D goggles. It's actually pretty cool, but I wish we had learned more about why shaman are embracing technology and how it works. Anyway, among the shaman of Los Angeles, Livvy is one of the best, but when an ancient Hopi sun god appears in her apartment, she knows she has a major problem. Soon there's reports of shaman getting trapped in the multiverse and dying in their sleep, and other shamanic issues, so what's Livvy to do? Break Shaman law, of course!

Shaman are not suppose to work together, or even know each other, but Livvy thinks a collaboration is the only way to fight the forces at work in the multiverse. I found this aspect of the book the most interesting. Having a room full of shaman, with very different personalities was great! Each one had her own distinct personality, and I loved getting to know them. We also get to see a lot of the multiverse which consists of middleworld, underworld, and upperworld. I think the world building was very well done in this book, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of it!

I did struggle with this book in the beginning. It seemed very slow and jumpy, and didn't fully hold my attention. Then at the halfway point things really get going and I couldn't put this down! Livvy is a very determined character, and I really admired her for wanting to set things straight in the multiverse at any cost. Not to increase her business and to make more money (like some other shaman) but to continue helping and healing. I'm excited to see what comes next for Livvy and the eclectic mix of other techno-shaman. Maybe a romance with SK?
