    I LOVE this series!

    One of the first e-books I ever purchased was Urban Shaman the first Walker Papers book. I’ve since purchased a paper copy as it is easier to share and I don’t have to worry about whether or not it will work on my next device. My first e-reader was a Palm PDA. I’ve been hooked on this series ever since and it just keeps getting better. Ms. Murphy has grown as a writer and Jo Walker has grown as a character. Warning Raven Calls is not a stand-alone book. If you haven’t read the other Walker Paper books RUN and get them NOW! Poor Jo she finally gets the guy and doesn’t get the chance to enjoy or explore it. She has to fly to Ireland in response to a vision and the fact she has been bitten by a werewolf. Poor Jo she can’t catch a break. Morrison calls Gary and gets him to go and assist Jo in her endeavors in Ireland. Without giving away too much I can say that Jo grows a great deal in this book. She gains new friends and says farewell to others. And now I have to wait for the next book.

    RAVEN CALLS picks up directly where SPIRIT DANCES left off: Joan

    RAVEN CALLS picks up directly where SPIRIT DANCES left off: Joanne suffering from a werewolf bite, and being pulled by the visions she saw while in her battles in that book to Ireland. The action starts immediately, with her best friend showing up - surprisingly, but very welcome - just as she gets off the flight. Teaming up, she and Gary follow her metaphysical nose to the beginning of her latest adventure. And it is a doozy - time travel, Irish mythology coming to life, and lots of fights - oh my!

    This is the 7th book in the Walker Papers series, and definitely my favorite of the bunch to date. Joanne does some growing up here, and resolves a few dangling threads from the previous books. The story is perfectly paced, and has a satisfying denouement...I just wish the next book was out!

    Intriguing, but complicated with all the time traveling

    I would have passed on Raven Calls if I had any inkling that it was Book 7 in a series. That’s right –7?! This is when I wish I do a little bit more research before I decide to pick up a book, but sometimes jumping in the middle of a series can work out okay. And it sounded SO good that I wanted to jump in! Well… Raven Calls would have welcomed me more completely if it had time to backtrack, but I think the story had a lot on its plate to keep track of all the time traveling. Joanne even got confused as to when things happened, if it un-happened, or plain and simple WHAT HAPPENED. Pretending that I know all about these characters and the magic system, I think Raven Calls works for the series even though Joanne leaves Seattle and ends up in Ireland. I like the idea that Joanne has to come to terms with Shamanic and Irish magic, but it sounds awfully complicated as the plot unfolds and the Irish gods get involved. Raven Calls will require close attention to detail, even for the seasoned Walker Papers reader, because the story will get inundated with characters and fluctuate between past and present.

    I Also Recommend:

    Still solid

    I like the series, and the fact that the main character has grown and finally accepted her abilities. The biggest problem I had with this book was that it basically tied up loose ends from other books that I had completely forgotten about (and didn't even really know were loose ends), so for a lot of the book I was playing catchup.

    Raven Calls by C. E. Murphy
    3 STARS
    Raven Calls is the first book of the series that I have read and I got lost an confused sometimes in this book. It mentioned time after time of somthing that had happened in another book. I think if you are a fan and follow the series you will like it more.
    The plot is very twisty jumping into different time lines and different plains of existance. Everytime I think everything will just wrap up now more twists and turns to go.
    Joanne at the begining as quit the police department and is on her way to Ireland because of a dream. She wants to find the woman in it so she can cure her of her werewolf bite and stop her before she turns one in it.
    As she thinking of renting a car she hears a familar voice and its her best friend Gary who is their to help her in anyway he can. A while later she is giving him the sight to see what she will see and somehow takes them back into time.
    Joanne has to battle a few different people before she can go back home and into her time.
    Joanne is a shaman and shapeshifter and is able to shift into different animals to help her fight. She is also a healer and can heal others still but not herself of a werewolf bite.
    Joanne gets to meet some of her relatives some deceased and a 19 year old cousin.
    Thier is quite a bunch of swearing in this book. No sex scenes you have to worry about. Lots of Magic.
    I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
