Editorial Reviews Review

This is absolutely fantastic writing; very original and completely immersive. I would definitely pay money to read the rest of this; you've managed to explain things very well while still leaving a lot of room for mystery and reader interest. Overall Strength: 5-stars; exciting, well-written, immediate hook, very original. I love the characterization of all the characters so far. Hook: 5-stars; I wanted to read more from the first two pages, and the rest of the chapter just fed my interest more. Prose: 5-stars; extremely good pacing; good level of detail (not too little, not too much); vivid descriptions; and absolutely fantastic use of showing rather than telling (the hair, the shirt, the necklace are all described as part of the plot, not as an info-dump). Originality: 5-stars; I can't think of any other novel that starts off with a blue-sparking, flute-playing shaman before then segueing into a faith healer job trying to save a comatose woman from her estranged lover - it's almost like the literary equivalent of a really good-yet-trippy dream. Also, "Nacho" for an orange cat just tickled me so much. Bravo.

Overall I found this interesting. I would like to know more about Livy-- I gather that she is a special sort of Shaman and would like to know what makes her special. It is well written and an intriguing idea.

From Publishers Weekly

This book has you asking "What?" on every page — but in a good way. Livvy, a medical student turned techno shaman in L.A., has a supernatural being called a kachina haunting her apartment. SK, a dwarf who brokers assignments for shamans, sends her out on gigs that require a trance-inducing god helmet, goggles, fresh batteries — and a yoga mat. It turns out that Livvy is a once-in-a-generation shaman with a gift that allows her to harness lightning. Yet her social and business skills are so weak that she's been dumped by her boyfriend and is pawning family heirlooms to pay the rent. Livvy's situation becomes truly desperate when routine shamanic healings start to go wrong for her and for other L.A. shamans. A violent Sumerian god is appearing in their trances and causing their clients to die. As a result of the deaths, public opinion turns against shamans and the community threatens not just their livelihoods but their lives. Livvy stumbles upon a possible way for the shamans to fight back— but only if she can persuade them to break with shamanic tradition and work as a group. The book's supernatural battle scenes lag and its easy to get tired of Livvy (like so many contemporary female fantasy protagonists) blaming herself whenever something goes wrong but Livvy, SK, and the shaman culture are interesting. This book could easily open a fresh new world of urban fantasy.
