Urban Shaman by C.E. Murphy

Book Summary: Joanne Walker has three days to learn to use her shamanic powers and save the world from the unleashed Wild Hunt. No worries. No pressure. Never mind the lack of sleep, the perplexing new talent for healing herself from fatal wounds, or the cryptic, talking coyote who appears in her dreams. And if all that's not bad enough, in the three years Joanne's been a cop, she's never seen a dead body--but she's just come across her second in three days. It's been a bitch of a week. And it isn't over yet.

I don't know. I couldn't even finish the book. I really couldn't get into it, which is sad because I wanted to. I was looking for something like the Anita Blake novels when they first came out. Back then I had enjoyed reading about Anita and her adventures. Not far into the series, these novels became little more than porn in a dust jacket. I stopped reading and started looking for something else, something similar but with a great story. Urban Shaman just wasn't it for me. I couldn't get into it. It's been done, and done better. Disappointed? You can say that. I may try to read it again someday but at this point and time I'll just say to skip it.
