    1. Such an awesome way to end a series!I can't believe how wonderful this book was.At one point, the series got a bit boring and predictable but I decided to stick with it, see what happens. I'm so glad I did!I cried and I laughed and it surprised me so much! If you started this series, it's definitely worth reading it 'til the end. Only bad side, well, it could have been longer. I'm really gonna miss all these characters, I fell in love with each and every one of them!Gotta go check this author ou [...]

    2. In 2014 this was the book I was desperate to read! I couldn't wait to see what was going to happenLittle did I know that this was going to be boring as hell -_-Full review to come.

    3. 3.6 - 3.9 An ARC was received by NetGalley and Mira in exchange for a fair an honest review I wanted to love this. I waited a long time for this book and even longer for the culminationd I was a little disappointed.Everything felt rushed (which in all honesty, it's felt that way since book 7 - not counting "No Dominion" here) with no real development in terms of (view spoiler)[ Morrison and Jo, the consequences of meeting Aidan, Jo's father tagging along(hide spoiler)]With Jo rushing around like [...]

    4. It's tricky to write a review of a book like this, because it's book #9 in a series, so if you've made it this far you know what you're in for. And also, fair disclosure, the author is a friend of mine.In a lot of ways this is quite different than the previous 8 Walker Paper books. While you've still got the very likeable protagonist, it doesn't have the mystery with lots of sudden plot twist structure of the others. Instead, we go quickly into Final Confrontation mode (okay, there are still som [...]

    5. This is one tough review for this reader to write. I am very sad to see this series end. This may well be the best volume in one of the best series I have ever read. C.E. Murphy deserves high praise for doing the nearly impossible, write a series in which every volume outdoes its predecessor. Murphy knows her readers well, very well indeed.This finale moves along at a blistering and breathtaking tempo. Even Joanne Walker finds herself gasping for breath as the final battle with "the Master" expl [...]

    6. Amazing ending to my favorite series. Nonstop action and emotional rollercoaster, ahoy! I gasped at least twice, cried, and bounced with joy. I didn't want to finish the book because I love this series and these characters so much, but I still couldn't put it down, and because of this book I honestly have no idea what I fed my kids yesterday. I also for some reason found my cell phone in the refrigerator. Anyway, if I were to complain about anything, it'd be that I would have liked more time wit [...]

    7. It's been a brutal year filled with non-stop changes for Joanne Walker. This is the end for her. The Master who has destroyed her life is finally going to confront her directly. Or is he? Joanne experiences even more loss in this book. While she's fighting him directly, he is using her friends and loved ones against her.Ms. Murphy weaves a tale of heart-break, betrayal and a happily for now. This book leaves a reader feeling unresolved in some aspects while explaining why the Master is the way h [...]

    8. As the author notes, this has been a long series so the short introductory book-by-book recap was very useful in reminding me of the overall outline without giving away details (especially as I just realized I'd missed one).It's beginning to feel that all the bad guys are thinking, "Let's break Joanne". With great talent and power comes great responsibility, and she - as always - steps up to the plate willingly, throwing everything she has and is into the fray. Her loyal friends, Gary and Coyote [...]

    9. Shaman Rises is the thrilling conclusion to the wild, out-of-body experience that is the Walker Papers series. Picking up right where Mountain Echoes left off, Joanne is barely given time to catch her breath before she is flying home to her beloved Seattle to stop an ancient evil from destroying the city.This book is like a going away party for the series. All our favourite characters are back and even a few mere acquaintances make appearances. Mainly, it was great to get to see Gary, Billy, Coy [...]

    10. I was given a copy of this book by NETGALLEY, for an honest REVIEW.C.E. Murphy does it again with SHAMAN RISES. She takes you on wild ride that leaves you gasping and wondering what the next page will reveal. This book has non-stop action, with a well-developed story line and character development. Joanne is a SHAMAN RISING coming into her own finally getting a grip on his SHAMAN gig. When she thinks that she has no more to give, she finds that one little spark that gives her the reason to defea [...]

    11. This book brings about the close to the series in a good way. I really liked how all of the previous characters and what they have gone through had a place in this book. All of the crap that Joanne and the others have gone through have lead up to this last battle. Things started out a bit slow, Annie was back and they had to find out why and where she was and what they learned actually made sense. It seemed like once they got that figured out it was non stop action, non stop good guys against th [...]

    12. The stories that I want to tell, especially as a director, don't necessarily have a perfect ending because, the older you get, the more you appreciate a good day versus a happy ending. You understand that life continues on the next day; the reality of things is what happens tomorrow. - Drew BarrymoreI am convinced that it is not the fear of death, of our lives ending that haunts our sleep so much as the fear that as far as the world is concerned, we might as well never have lived. - Harold Kushn [...]

    13. An amazing and fulfilling end to a awesome series. I will miss spending time with Joanne and friends while driving to and from work.

    14. See this review and others like it at Badass Book Reviews!Shaman Rises is the end of the road for Joanne Walker and her friends -- they will either destroy or be destroyed by the Master. This book was a rollercoaster ride from the very beginning and, even though I didn't know this was the last book in the series until right before I started reading it, I felt pretty satisfied with the way everything ended. I am hoping that we will get some short stories or another novella sometime in the future [...]

    15. I think what matters most is how you feel when you finally close a book. The emotions that flood through you as you read the final lines, finish the last page. What has the writer left you with after your journey together? In this case, it's hope. And satisfaction. A smile, and a lot of snot and tears. Thanks, C.E. Murphy. And I say that without an ounce of sarcasm. I knew from the moment I picked up Urban Shaman that I'd found a series to love. Whatever confusion I experienced along the way nev [...]

    16. I would have given it 3 starts except for two things:1. There was too much action with Jo and co lurching from one over the top, against the odds magical battle to the next with very little character interaction. What I like about this series is Joanne's interactions with the other characters but even though pretty much everyone she has met in the previous books puts in an appearance we are given very little character interaction. The constant magical battles seemed a little repetitive too.2. (v [...]

    18. Wow. A fitting end to the series. Dear reader, I did cry. Joanne Walker, reluctant shaman, rises to the occasion once again. C. E. Murphy provides a convenient timeline/synopsis of all the previous books, but as always, I recommend starting from the beginning, if you've missed the series. Over the course of eleven books (two collections), Joanne Walker has gone from being a brassy, bossy mechanic to a powerhouse shaman comfortable with gods. She's had her world turned upside down and inside out [...]

    19. I kept putting off reading this book because I knew it was going to be the kind of cruelly amazing that broke my heart over and over again. And I was not wrong. It was incredible. It was horrific. It was beautifully written and absolutely heartbreaking. There was entirely too much bad and only just enough good to keep me (and probably the characters, too, for that matter) from giving up. But in the end it was a truly amazing conclusion to one of my favorite series. So I suppose my recommendation [...]

    20. I love it when a series has a real end, especially when it completes an arc that has been planned and building through the entire series. It's obvious that The Walker Papers have always been intended to be that kind of series, and I am gratified that CE Murphy has fulfilled that promise. Shaman Rises completes Joanne's story leaves the reader both with a feeling of fulfillment and a sense of continuation. I will miss the anticipation of a new installment, but don't feel like anything else needs [...]

    21. The final book in the Walker Papers series by C.E. Murphy is an excellent end to an excellent series. What I really love about Murphy is how she has taken so many myths from so many different cultures and turned them into such an interesting story! She has been able to meld them all together in a storyline that makes sense and engages readers.In this last book, Murphy does an excellent job of wrapping up most of the lose ends of JoAnn's, the main character, life. JoAnn has her final battle with [...]

    22. I was disappointed in this conclusion. I thought it was very depressing and mostly filled with disaster after disaster which didn't give Jo any time to interact with her friends, family and lover. I hate a book that has a strong heroine who somehow just doesn't fight with all her strength until she gets pissed off because someone she loves gets hurt or killed. Then it's like "bring it" and she proceeds to kick their ass like it's child's play. To me this is just a cop out and is very unrealistic [...]

    23. As much as I hate to read a book that concludes a well-loved series, what choice do you have, really? This book was so well done. Some things happened that were obvious and logical. Some things happened that were heart-wrenching and surprizing. But in the end, all the things that happened were correct. Ms. Murphy concluded the story in a way that made sense and was satisfying, even if it made us cry at times. Thank you for an epic adventure with fantastic characters that I will revisit with plea [...]

    24. I thought the book tied the story of the series pretty well together by the end, but the story itself was sort of a disappointment. Jo went from crisis to crisis with no moments carved out for her to interact with everyone. I was disappointed that there were no quiet moments with her, Morrison, and Gary. I was happy that Morrison and Jo got together, but was disappointed there was so little payoff - not a sex scene, but just time to acknowledge their coming together more.

    25. The Shaman thing still annoys, but I so like the way she thinks. She takes the options available to her even if they aren't pleasant.All the "we're behind you, dear" and "we'll be the hero's side-kicks" is bothersome. And her man stands by as she does all this metaphysical stuff. Be manly!But Gary, gotta love Gary."Gary really had taught me the thing that mattered the most. All I had to do was believe." p. 332It's done.

    26. I liked this series but I feel this book was not quite the culmination I had hoped for. In fact, I'm going to timidly say this series could have ended about 2 books back. It was good, not great and I'm sorry to say I'm so tired of all the shamanic tricks and garden descriptions that I was starting to skim. I'm glad this the last book because I don't want the series to have ended badly. :(

    27. miniseries: Walker Papers #9Great ending to an awesome series! I'm very sad the Walker Papers are done. Jo, Gary, and Morrison were a wonderful group of characters and the plot incredible. The last book ties things up with many surprises and Joanne kicks butt again! ~ Kim S.

    28. Usually authors save the last few chapters for the much anticipated fight scene against the ultimate evil. Murphy did the most brilliant thing and dedicated the whole book, WHOLE BOOK to this awesome battle. Entertaining! Thank you!

    29. Another good book in this series. I hope this isn't the last book in the Walker Papers. She is a great protagonist with cool supporting cast.
