In Urban Shaman, the first installment of The Walker Papers, C.E. Murphy creates a character who’s rather similar to a number of other urban fantasy heroines, but makes her someone worth reading about.
Joanne Walker has a background with the supernatural but has rejected its influences in her life. But now she is being forcibly drawn back into the world of faerie and magic.
Urban Shaman was interesting enough to keep me turning pages. The characters were well-written and I appreciated that C.E. Murphy was able to tease us with a bit of romantic interest without moving the story completely into paranormal romance.
Urban Shaman was a nice read.
