it was amazing

Finally some resolution... AND THEN NONE! I've loved this series because of the complex characterization that Murphy includes with Joanne Walker and Morrison. They have been like oil and water from day one but now they seem to be oil and vinaigrette on a tasty salad. The growth both exhibit has made the relationship believable and based on mutual respect, attraction, caring, and perhaps love. Like any good author Murphy gives us a mere HINT of the possibilities before flinging Jo back into the magical world that she has immersed herself in. The growth that Jo has displayed from disbelief to grudging respect to understanding and a deep respect to even love has been well paced and clearly shows a struggle and a learning curve. I love it when that happens. I love it when the author SHOWS me that a character can learn and grow rather than just coming out, guns blazing, and knowing everything. That makes a character BORING. Murphy never does this.

The spiritual paths explored and uniquely molded for this world has been brilliantly done. Giving those with no clue about shamanism not just a glimpse into that world but following Jo as she works through a change of soul.

This series has explored and expanded in very interesting ways and I truly look forward to reading the next installment.
