Book Review: Shaman, Healer, Heretic by M. Terry Green


Synopsis (from Goodreads.com): 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 received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.* This book was pretty awesome! To start with, it is definitely a new and unique concept. I can honestly say I've never read a book about shamans. The world-building was fantastic, the characters were great, and there was lots of action!

This book had me hooked right from the beginning, and never slowed down. There was a lot of exciting action! Olivia (Livvy) was my favorite character. She was determined, and unwilling to let anyone stand in the way of her doing the right thing. She wasn't afraid to break the rules to help people, and wasn't willing to let bad things happen when she could do something about it. 

The only thing I had a bit of an issue with was the bad guy, and part of the battle scene. It was just a little off for me, but it was still a good finale. 

I loved the end, and I can't wait to start book two!



Thanks for reading!
