It's the end of the world…

Again.

For all the bodies she's encountering, you'd think beat cop Joanne Walker works in Homicide. But no, Joanne's a reluctant shaman who last saved mankind three months ago—surely she deserves more of a break! Yet, incredibly, "Armageddon, Take Two" is mere days away.

There's no lack of books in the occult suspense/romance genre and it's always refreshing to read a book with a strong female lead that doesn't keep trying to commit suicide or get tangled up in kinky sex. C. E. Murphy is a strong writer, and her characters are interesting and believable. Joanne is a sassy, uppity lady with a good share of intelligence dealing with a very complicated reality. You can't help but like her, or her friend Gary the cab driver, or Captain Morrison, her boss and foremost critic. The story, with Joanne as narrator, moves well, and has many flashes of enjoyable sarcasm. Despite being the second volume, I think Thunderbird Falls can be read on its own - but you will want to read Urban Shaman anyway, so get both. Joanne investigates the death on her own and finds her path keeps criss-crossing that of a coven of witches who apparently need her help. The dead woman played an important role in the covens plans and Joanne would be the perfect replacement. All she has to is help with the reincarnation of and ancient wizard who is also intent on saving the world. Or maybe he isn't. Joanne must puzzle out the answers to this question and many others if she is to drag Seattle back from the edge of disaster, and, incidentally, get her head together about her spiritual powers. Unlikely shaman Joann Walker, Gary, and the Seattle police force return in this second installment after Urban Shaman. Finally facing the facts that all of her magic useage has effected the weather patterns of Seattle, Joann has little idea what to do about it. She has steadfastly tried to turn her back on magic for months. But a near brush with death on the cosmic level and the disappearance of her spirit guide Coyote have lead her to realise she needs a teacher. Admittedly, I enjoyed Urban Shaman a lot more, as well as the short story (Banshee Cries) that supposedly took place in between that book and this one. But still a good read.

In my opinion, this novel was better than the first of the Walker Papers. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and finished it in only a couple of days. I love Jo! She's so cool! I also really love that the books take place in Seattle, because I used to live there. It's like a homecoming. And yes, if it got that hot in Seattle in the summer everyone would definitely be freaking out and/or miserable, because it usually only gets into the 70's. Fantastic story! Don't miss it! Even if you only kinda liked Urban Shaman, you will LOVE this book!

It was a letdown. The first book was promising but this one didn't build on last book. The main character is supposed to grow but she seems to act like a teenager not a grown woman with a responsibility and a gift. That is what turned me off about this book.
