Sunday Reviews - Shaman: Book One/Book Two

Sunday Reviews Week 2

 Cover for 'Shaman: Book One'

Shaman: Book One/Book Two

Shaman is an incredible urban fantasy from S.W. Sondheimer. This may be her debut novel, but you'd never guess it from the quality the story and style of her writing. The story mainly follows Misha Devlin as he comes into his own with his Shaman powers and the struggles and sacrifices he faces in order to save his friend, Harker, from a vicious blood curse. And of course, there's some demons to deal with(literal and figurative) and the presence of Lucifer(as a good guy, no less!)

Each character in Shaman is brimming with personality and charm.  Sondheimer has a way with dialogue that helps make the characters real, pulling you head first into their world. Honestly, few writers I can think of pull this off as well. There is just an organic feel to the characters, their dialogue, and their world. I can only imagine how much time the author must have spent fleshing out Shaman's story.

If you're looking for a great urban fantasy, or heck, a great story in general, definitely check this one out. There's a little bit of something for everyone in Shaman(action, romance, magic, good vs. evil, etc). Shaman is not an easy book to put down and I'm anxiously awaiting a sequel(I know, the first one just came out, but it's that good). Well done Mrs. Sondheimer!  


Shaman: Book One and Shaman: Book Two are available on Amazon and Smashwords.
