An Olivia Lawson Techno-Shaman Novel Book One

Even for a techno-shaman, a kachina in the bedroom isn’t exactly part of the drill. When Olivia Lawson wakes to find one towering over her, she panics. A Hopi god visiting the real world isn’t just wrong–it’s impossible.

Or is it?

Soon Olivia learns that the kachina is the least of her worries. As she struggles to save her clients, clashes with other shamans, and fends off the attacks of real-world vigilantes, Olivia finds herself in the destructive path of a malevolent ancient force intent on leaving the spiritual realm to conquer this one.

Left with few options, Olivia is forced to defy centuries of shaman prohibitions. As she and her allies risk everything in their bid for survival, Olivia ultimately learns that the rules are there for a reason and that breaking them has a terrible cost.

“This book has you asking “What?” on every page — but in a good way. …Livvy, SK, and the shaman culture are interesting. This book could easily open a fresh new world of urban fantasy.” – Publishers Weekly

Shaman Healer Heretic is a fast paced read in an original setting, recommended.” – Midwest Book Review

What Readers Are Saying About Shaman, Healer, Heretic:

Fast-paced, brightly up-to-date with nicely interwoven mythology and a genuine touch of modern medicine too, the story pulls readers into Livvy’s heresy, brings fascinatingly different shamanic characters together on a common quest, and tells a pleasingly complete story in a world that’s perfectly prepared to uphold a series.

From the first page this story just took off and I had to read to the end. That’s a good story. Apparently, I’m not the only one that thinks so because this book is a 2011 Semi-Finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Grats!

      Hi Christina!

      Thank you so very much! Several books a day––wow! That’s a serious reading schedule. If only I could write like that. :) That’s amazing. I’m so glad you enjoyed the book, and I really appreciate your taking time to stop by and say so. Since it’s been several hours since, you must be done with the series by now. ;) Anyway, thanks so much and have a great rest of the weekend.
