My Opinion :

I had actually never heard of Shaman Healer Heretic when the author contacted, and I was quite happy to pick the book up, since the summary was really intriguing and different sounding from any book I had read. Even though I didn't really like the cover, the summary was just too awesome, and so I accepted the offer :D

I dug into the book not long after receiving it, since it just seemed good. It totally surprised me; in a pretty good way!

Shaman Healer Heretic is about shamans.... well, techno-shamans. And, you don't see that a lot in books, certainly not in YA. So, this was a refreshing and cool idea :D

Shaman Healer Heretic is about Livvy, or Olivia, a techno-shaman (a techno shaman is like a shaman, except he/she uses technology things instead of drugs to get their work done...), and a bit about SK, a friend of hers. And, there'S a lot going into the 'shaman' world; there's an evil spirit, the Tiamat, that has awakened and is trying to conquer the real world. And Livvy has to try and find a way to defeat him. But, then there are many betrayals.

The writing is really detailed in this book; you can tell a lot from those details, which I sometimes love/like, but now, it just felt like there was too much, and I just skipped some details :S

here was something missing for me with this book; romance. There (almost) wasn't any. And, you know how I love me some romance ;D

Livvy was a great and strong character, and I really liked her a lot. I would have liked for her to have a boyfriend... :S I like romance.

SK was awesome. I seriously loved him! He was just so... cool and great and fun to read about. I would love some SK Point of View scenes ;D

And Joel... that... ugh. I can't say anything more, for spoilers, but let's just say he'S not my favorite charatacter.

This book was pretty good! You should consider buying it!


3.5 roses
