Synopsis

SEMI-FINALIST in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards


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.

Amazon.com 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.
