Its hard to review this book without giving away the story. I loved the history and the relationships that were built and mended. I'm looking forward to the next and final book.

Joanne Walker just keeps getting better and better.  If you've been reading this series you have got to read this installment.  Everything you've been through with Joanne all the mistakes, the trials, the bumbling, is all worth it in this story.  Joanne has learned from her mistakes and it is wonderful to see her make smart choices based on her previous experience.  I can't say that of all series heroines. If you've never read a Walker Papers book, then you are in for a treat.  It helps to have some of the back story, some of the scenes will be richer and have deeper meaning, but it is not necessary.  It will simply pique your interest and you'll want to buy every other Walkers paper book just to find out more about all the characters you meet in this story. Favorite scenes: When Morrison enters the story and the car chase scene.

This is officially the 8th novel in the Walker Papers series. However, there are 2 novellas available in print and many short stories that were released via the Kickstarter campaign the author did for No Dominion #7.5, otherwise known as Gary's Story. I first discovered Ms. Murphy when I picked up Urban Shaman due to the cover and then was hooked on the blurb. I have been following this series fanatically ever since and this book has been my long awaited payoff. The history, hinted at since the very beginning, of Joanne Walker's adolescence and the child she gave up for adoption. If you haven't read any of the other books in the series, stop reading this and go get started. Right Now! This story opens on Joanne, arriving in North Carolina fresh from Ireland and the end of book 7. Well, not fresh so much, as jet lagged, tired, cranky and not happy to be back in North Carolina and facing her past. But her father is missing and it looks like Joanne may be the only one to find him.  If you missed Morrison in the last book, fear not, he has a large and thrilling part in this one. This is the book I have been waiting for since reading Urban Shaman all those years ago. So many questions are answered and truths are told, that I know I will have to reread it just to make sure that I didn't miss anything. Especially as the next book, Shaman Rising, is reputed to be the end of the series.  I am giving this book 5 stars on Goodreads. It had so much in it, so, so much that I sat spellbound as I read. When I finished, I was so overwhelmed with everything that happened in this book, I had to wait to start another. Just to take the time to really process everything that I had gone through with Joanne and Morrison. Simply Amazing.

On her way home from Ireland and her latest confrontation with the Master, Joanne Walker receives a call that no one wants to receive...her father is missing. Going home to North Carolina means Joanne will have to confront situations, feelings and people she thought she escaped by moving across the country to Seattle. Upon arriving in the Qualla Joanne meets the one person she she has the most trepidation about...Aidan, the son she gave up for adoption when she was just a teenager. Evil forces are determined to destroy the Qualla and all that Jo holds dear. Together with Michael Morrison, Seattle Police Captain and Jo's love interest, Joanne will have to travel through time in order to save her father, son, and the land she loves. Jo is a shaman descended from two powerful magical traditions, Cherokee and Irish Celtic. Over the course of the series she has grown tremendously as a character, demonstrating some amazing healing and defensive powers as well as personal emotional growth. She finally accepts her third spirit animal in Mountain Echoes. With its assistance Jo becomes even more powerful and connected to her shamanistic roots. Mountain Echoes is extremely well written, seamlessly flowing from fast-paced action, emotional catharsis, and romance. Speaking of the romance, Jo and Morrison got together two books ago, but haven't had much time to explore their new relationship as Jo left for Ireland directly afterwards. So I was thrilled when Morrison arrived...in Petite (Jo's beloved Mustang) no less! The couple finally get to spend some time together, granted it's in between trying to save the world and Jo's family. Mountain Echoes is a must read for those already familiar with The Walker Papers. If you haven't started on the series, then this isn't a good place for you to dive in (the next book Shaman Rises is the last). But it is a must-read series, so head back to book one, Urban Shadows and start the adventure.

Great story and interesting plot that ties up various loose ends in the Jo Walker series. It still can stand on its own, but most readers would appreciating knowing all the references from previous books in the series.
