It was never forgotten that SK was shorter than average, but at the same time it wasn't A Big Deal to nearly all of the characters, he was just who he was and the world kept spinning like always. I was quite caught out by the ending, which doesn't happen often to me. Perhaps I should have expected it since it wasn't like it was anything truly original or special, but I'm kind of glad I didn't because it gets boring having everything figured out before the story gets there.

Still, I didn't dis like him and I totally wasn't expecting him to try and kill, well, everybody else in the story.

I was completely thrown when it was announced he was Carmen's son and Carmen was the villain of the story. Maybe my recent binge in to historical western romance has dulled my urban fantasy senses! Though it never did explain how Tiamat was freed in the first place. Was that really Carmen's doing? I'd recommend this to any fan of the Urban Fantasy genre. It's not dark and gritty, but neither is it inconsequential fluff. There are some holes, though I'm putting that down to being a first book in the series and still trying to find its feet.

Still, I enjoyed it enough to buy the next one in the series and I set a pretty high bar after all the UF I've read in the past, so make of that what you will. View all 4 comments. I have to admit, I was a wary of the title and the cover, but I am so glad that didn't stop me from reading this book. The pacing is good. The plot is unpredictable without being unstable. And it has a great cast of characters which only pulled me in more, the further I read. Livvie is a shaman. Armed with a special gift that allows her to send her spirit to another plane, she makes her livi 4.

Armed with a special gift that allows her to send her spirit to another plane, she makes her living helping people whose spirits are trapped. Some clients are in a coma, some have serious physical illness, and others have psychological issues she can help them overcome. As the book begins, things are a bit "off" on that other plane.

At first, the changes are small. But when an ancient Hopi god --a kachina-- manifests himself in Livvie's bedroom, things begin to snowball. There is a powerful, destructive entity wreaking havoc on the other side. Even as skilled as she is, Livvie can't fight it alone. So she reaches out to others of her kind, hoping together, they can defeat the beast. There were a lot of things I liked about the story.

One was the plot. It was never boring; it never lagged. And while the progression felt natural, it never felt formulaic. The characters were three dimensional and nuanced. I liked Livvie, though I would have liked to know a little more of her backstory. Her shaman-middleman, SK, totally stole the show, though. I loved how his personality and his feelings were revealed over time. And by the end of the book, he was easily my favorite character.

There's not really much in the way of romance, but there are romantic interests. There are definitely feelings going on but I won't spoil the particulars. The world-building is very cool. And it's obvious that the book was professionally edited. My only minor complaints: I wish we knew more about why Livvie left her medical career to become a shaman. We get bits and pieces of her history but not really enough to paint a complete picture. Maybe the author is saving that for later books. But overall, I really enjoyed the book. And I'm looking forward to starting the next installment.

Nov 02, Grace Krispy rated it really liked it. This book is immediately engaging. From the very beginning, I was drawn into Livvy's life. The book is sprinkled with tantalizing details about the work of the shaman and how it integrates into the modern LA scene, giving the reader the joy of gradually discovering the details of this world. I loved the idea of the goggles and the multiverse, and I found the "rules" of this existence to be intriguing.

It was evident that there was a lot of thought that went into how things would work for the shaman in this setting. The plot flows nicely from one event to another without ever feeling like it dragged, and the writing style made for an easy, quick read.

The ending was generally satisfying with the exception of Joel's part , and it even held a twist I wasn't expecting. Livvy was easy to get to know and I was interested in her and her work. I really liked her character and she just felt "right" for the job. Working as a broker of shaman services, SK was a good accompaniment for Livvy's character. He was tough, but with a soft spot for Livvy, which made him realistic and gave us sympathy for his character. Each of the other shaman had very interesting and unique personalities, and the distinctions between them were well drawn by the author.

The descriptions made it easy to picture the majority of the characters and imagine their interactions with one another. Joel's character, however, was one that didn't seem to fit for me. When he first burst onto the scene, I thought he might be interesting. As the story progressed, he seemed "off" to me.


  • Shaman, Healer, Heretic by M. Terry Green.
  • Olivia‚Äôs Realm | Backlit Web.
  • Latogeneia.

He felt less developed than the other characters- almost more like an afterthought to add some tension and a love interest. I couldn't figure out why Livvy seemed to trust him immediately, and his reaction to her line of work felt unexpected. As the story progressed, I found him even more unbelievable, and his part in the ending detracted from the story for me. If he didn't fit before, he seemed almost ludicrous by that point.

I really don't think the story needed his character in order to be complete.

See a Problem?

This is a rather long review, so don't be surprised by the wall of text hidden behind the spoiler tag. The first begins with a character by the name of view spoiler [ Joel. His entire plot arc was confusing and rather pointless to the entire book. The shock factor that appeared at the end was rather a let down.

I could tell, fairly qu 2. I could tell, fairly quickly, that although he was branded as a 'love interest' for Livvy, it wasn't going to happen. The author did not make the readers fall in love with Joel and that is where he went horribly wrong. If I had been able to like Joel and fall in love with his character, the shock of his betrayal would have hit closer to home and been more shocking. But instead it was clear that Joel was a means to an end.

Another tag onto this character, near the end when all the Shamans are going up against the big baddy, why would he go after one of the Shamans instead of SK, their one and only protector? It would have made a lot more sense to go after SK first, especially since SK wasn't paying any attention and Joel was able to pick off one of the Shamans very easily. Take out SK and the Shamans are pretty much dead meat. Second, we're shown pretty early that cops show major disdain for Shamans.

Livvy was nearly raped in one scene, but as soon as it came out that she was a Shaman the cop just ignored it and walked away once his 'job' was done taking down info. We were pretty much told that the attempted rape incident wouldn't be filed or reported. But at the end the cops are brought in again to arrest Joel. Now then, why would the cops be willing to believe 5 Shamans and a guy who interacts closely with Shamans? From what we've seen, the cops don't trust them, dislike them a lot. Why would they believe Shamans over one of their own, a paramedic?

Seems fishy, but I'll just have to roll with the idea that the asshole cop was one of a very small amount Which is all well and good; fantastic actually! But not many people would know what a Kachina is. I only knew about it because I took an anthropology course. It was because I knew what a Kachina was already, that I was able to continue reading and enjoy the story at first , If I had not taken the class I would have had to put the book down and do some research to understand WHAT a Kachina is and their importance to the Hopi.

I feel like the author could have incorporated the Kachina in a way that better described what it was and its importance. You haul butt around, all over LA, finding lost souls literally and nobody gives you a lick of respect. Only, suddenly, Techno-shamans are dieing. As more Shamans die, and the underworld becomes more and more dangerous to enter, Livvy works with S. But pulling together the secretive and isolationist Shamans into a working group is harder than one might think.

And it soon appears that, even working together, it might be too late to stop the destruction of the multiverse, and possibly of all time and space. Shaman, Healer, Heretic is a quirky sort of Urban Fantasy, set in the gritty and unhappy back alleys and hovels of Los Angeles. I picked up my copy of M. If you are a lover of Urban Fantasy as am I, this is a book you should add to your reading list.

If the next two are as good as this one, I will be happy I did. Apr 12, Stephanie rated it it was amazing. I was impressed enough that I popped for the ninety-nine cents and bought the book. 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.

The story is well written, and pulls you in from page one, which is when the action starts. There aren't many books that will keep me up but this one did. The characters are approachable and, mostly likable. They evolve or devolve and learn well throughout the book. There are a few loose-ish ends that have left me wondering, and the story might have been a little cleaner if they were left out or modified. I suspect at least two are set-ups for the next story. Filled with action and cool technology that helps make shamanism believable. I was just fascinated with Green's approach to the spiritual planes.

There is a mix engaging diverse cultures in the spirit-world: The shamans are also a diverse bunch. The setting is an alternate contemporary earth where shamans are known to actually have spiritual abilities and are used regularly if not fully accepted. A pretty original plot and concept. I liked the writer's voice and felt there was a good balance between showing and telling.

No info-dump and no hot and heavy moments. May 10, A. Grappin rated it liked it. I was enthralled by Shaman Healer Heretic. That being said, I think I may have been more in love with the idea of techno-shamans than with the book itself. That is not to say the book was bad.

The plot was compelling, the characters lovable and relatable, and the setting believable. I am unsure if my slight dissatisfaction comes from the book not being longer and fuller, for being a touch simplified, or if I had built expectations that were too high from reading the back cover descr I was enthralled by Shaman Healer Heretic. I am unsure if my slight dissatisfaction comes from the book not being longer and fuller, for being a touch simplified, or if I had built expectations that were too high from reading the back cover description. Perhaps I am only seeing the possibilities of the modern world sub-culture Green has created in introducing the techno-shamans.

While I very much enjoyed this book, I was not blown away by it. I did not experience any dizzying highs or devastating lows in listening. I did find myself guessing at what was to come, to have myself proven partially correct. The plot was very well wrapped-up, leaving the characters and world open to development. True to the philosophy I take in writing, elements were not thrown in frivolously.

Bookish by Olivia Long

A detail that may seem unimportant or overlookable early on comes back for a major reason as the plot reaches its climax. I haven't yet decided if I will pursue the series further. I do feel like I have been enriched by reading Shaman Healer Heretic or rather, by listening to it but I feel like it was a meal served with too small a portion.

It's fun, shamanism and nature religions share some universals world and history wide, but they're also all unique, and this book manages to deal with that quite nicely. The magic system and world building is done very well, bearing in mind I am miss anti-exposition and I don't mind having to look up the odd word Actually, if you just look up Kachina and Nahual, you can probably manage the rest: Jul 26, Angela demonsangel Fitzgerald rated it it was amazing Shelves: Review posted on Audible.

Meanwhile, a soaring number of people in the real world are flocking to hospitals with unexplained illnesses, and shamans are being blamed. The problem is that shamans hate working together. Shaman, Healer, Heretic is the first in what I think will be great series. I imagine more will be revealed in later books, three of which I believe have already been published.

Urban fantasy fans will want to add this one to their collection. Mar 27, Jill rated it really liked it. Let's start this off by saying that this book took me to completely new place, and that's not easy to do these days. I've read all different genres, though urban fantasy is my favorite. I'm not sure why the Native American myths are not a favorite of authors, perhaps it doesn't seem exotic enough.

In any case, this was a good solid adventure, taking place across different worlds. Olivia Livvy is a techno shaman, who travels to other planes using a pair of goggles as her transportation medium.

I Let's start this off by saying that this book took me to completely new place, and that's not easy to do these days. I remember thinking that the elimination of mind altering substances might make this novel a possible young adult read, and I can say now that this might be a possible market for this series. While traveling, Livvy is assisted by spirits, which I will avoid going into to avoid spoiling the fun, but I will say that the mythology is very well done.

I am a bit of a geek when it comes to exotic spiritual practice, and never for a moment did I feel as though something was out of place or odd--even though there are monsters and all sorts of oddities, they all fit with the story. The only faults I can find here are in the area of character development and pacing. I never got a chance to get to know the characters very well, because the action is so fast paced. Livvy is constantly moving. Things happen simultaneously in all worlds, as they should, but that means the reader has to keep up with everything at once.

At times it seemed a little tiring, and the traveling a little repetitive. I don't think it is enough of an issue to keep anyone from reading, though. This book is very well written, and I enjoyed the journey, I just wish there was a bit of sightseeing in between, a chance to admire the beauty and make note of it.

However, there were aspects of the Big Bad s that were not foreshadowed- indeed, at least one detail basically completely contradicted the eventual revelation. I cannot say more because of spoilers, but that's partly why I gave this very entertaining novel 4 instead of 5 stars.

I also found the shaman's position in society to be problematic. Are they fringe whackos? Are they a persecuted minority?
