    1. Currently re-reading because I totally forgot I'd already read it. And I must take time it to squee and flail at the best fandom reference I've found in an urban fantasy yet. As they're driving into the state park on p184, Jo's gaze lands on a '67 black Impala with Kansas plates.Well played, Ms Murphy. Well played.I *desperately* want the crossoverfic now!ETA: and it just got better! Apparently, the FBI got to the body before Jo, Coyote and co; and there are three of them. There's a woman and tw [...]

    2. Demon Hunts is the fifth book in The Walker Papers series, and by now, Joanne Walker (aka Siobhán Walkingstick) and her friends are familiar staples in my reading library. I've enjoyed to varying degrees watching Joanne mostly bumble along with this whole shaman gig she's always been pretty reluctant about, and while there have been times when her character's reluctance to just accept this new world she's been forced into has frustrated me, I have to admit, overall I've enjoyed the slow and som [...]

    3. Once again: Love the characters!BUT, most of the times while reading what Joanne does as a Shaman, i can't help feeling lost! YES, PLEASE!! O_OHeck, maybe i'm just too dense to understand it. I can't help feeling that had the series been, less "inner dialogue oriented", less mystical or at least more interspaced with other parts, like some action or some romantic scenes, this would have worked better. As it is, i feel like there are "clumps" of the shamanic aspectsat suddenly remove all fluidity [...]

    4. Since the first book in this series, I've struggled with whether or not I would continue with it. I really like the supporting characters, Gary, Billy etc. However, I didn't particular care for the continuous venture into the astral plane and the incessant self dialogue of the main character. Over time, this corrected itself but now after reading Demon Hunts I am asking myself once again whether or not I will continue with this series.This time my problem is with the main character's lack of com [...]

    5. I'm really enjoying these more as the series goes on. The tropes early on that bugged me have kind of resolved themselves and it's turning out to be a very strong UF series.

    6. Joanne and Billy are now the woo-woo team – the pair with supernatural abilities who help with those cases that are just too weird for anyone else. So when people show up dying and partially eaten but without a scrap of any kind of forensic evidence on the bodies, it’s time to call them in.But even magic can’t work miracles and there’s a limit to what even they can sense, much to their frustration. What they do learn is that their enemy is far more dangerous than they imagined and is goi [...]

    7. Demon Hunts is C.E. Murphy’s fifth book in the Walker Papers series. Joanne Walker is a Seattle police detective who is trying to deal with the facts of her life. She has the Sight. She can Heal. She’s a Shaman. What else could go wrong? When a cannibalistic serial killer starts leaving mutilated bodies in her jurisdiction, Joanne and her partner Billy are thrust into the forefront and try to use their supernatural skills to track a killer.This is my first entry in the Walker Paper series an [...]

    8. This is a brand new release in Murphy's The Walker Papers books, one of my favorite urban fantasy series.[return][return]It's almost Christmas and Seattle is in a deep freeze. Detective Joanne Walker feels the cold a bit more than most: another dead body has been found, obviously chewed on, and not even her shamanistic powers can find a clue. Her partner, Billy Holliday--who really does see dead people--is equally frustrated. All of the bodies have been found in the wilderness, all the victims t [...]

    9. It seems like with this book Joanne hits her stride, she has finally accepted being a shaman and embraces her reality. It seems like there are ramifications that come from the ending of the last book that have changed the landscape in Seattle. Through out this book Joanne makes strides to incorporate her new powers to figure things out right away instead of being forced to use them as a last resort. People from Joanne's past make an appearance and we get a better picture of her life as a teen an [...]

    10. There's got to be a heartbreaking book in all the series, especially in the long ones. Well, seems like for the Walker Papers series, this was it. And I never saw it coming*sigh* *tear*Anyway, this series is getting better and better. I love C.E. Murphy's writing style, I love her world building and the realistic way she crafts her characters. And Jo rocks! I'm so glad I got to read (well, listen to) all the books back to back!<3The villain in this book was sooo annoying! For the last 1/4 of [...]

    11. First half of the book was good, second half not so much. Loved the tension between Morrison and Coyote, wish things could have built up before they came crashing down with Joanne's revelations about Coyote. Loved that Joanne is finally asking someone for help, wish she had done it in the past 4 books! Would have loved to see more of Morrison, glad that Murphy has stopped with her killing rampage (seriously, the first couple books felt like anyone new Jo would meet would die), but the storyline [...]

    12. Joanne Walker is really over her head in this one, a Wendigo no less and one that beats her down over and over before she finally embraces her full powers and does what Jo does best-wins.Lots of interesting angles in the storyline, a deadly powerful supernatural villain to overcome and even some surprises for readers in Joanne's romantic life.Next up is Spirit Dances and I am ready to see what this plucky shaman/detective gets herself in book 6 of the series.

    13. Coyote is back! Loved him in this book and seeing how he and Joanne act around each other after meeting in person. It's clear that no one can compare to the Captain.I hope something will work out there.

    14. When I first read this series years ago my library didn't have this book so I just skipped it. After reading it I have a better understanding of a lot of things in those later books now. Especially when it comes to Coyote and her "friend" from back in the day The whole situation is still sad, but I understand it better now.I really wish that Jo didn't have so many potential love interests when it is rather obvious who she belongs with. That or it is just me and I got tired of authors yanking me [...]

    15. Fifth in the Walker Papers urban fantasy series revolving around shaman Detective Joanne Walker in the Seattle PD. My TakeWell, this is definitely an interesting twist: murdered hikers left in their favorite milieu.I’m with Walker. Just because Joanne and Billy haven’t found anything yet, doesn’t mean they aren’t worth calling in. After all, forensics hasn’t found anything either and no one questions calling them. I do sympathize with Morrison. This magical stuff is not the stuff of po [...]

    16. This was one of the more interesting novels in the series from the mythological standpoint and it brought together some of the different story lines into a long-awaited resolution (of sorts). It was a quick read, engaging and a decent stand-alone storyline.

    17. This was a very difficult book to read. There were not only childhood stories but self chastising self analysis and shaman education . Very distracting. Hard to remain focused on main demon persecute . Dont really think I will continue to follow series

    18. Better with each Walker PaperI really come to enjoy Jo. I'm really glad that Cyrano has shown up. This one was really exciting and action-packed

    19. Decent mystery, pretty good showing by Joanne, and some excellent supporting characters, including a sweet fandom cameo by two guys in a black impala with Kansas plates.

    20. Joanne Walker is a police officer but she is also a shaman and along with her partner Billy Holiday she investigates crimes that involve the supernatural. Joanne isn't an expert Shaman though, she is new to her powers and is definitely having to learn on the job. This time they are up against a serial killer who is eating part of their victims but leaving absolutely no evidence behind to give the police a clue to their identity. Can Joanne track down the killer using her magical abilities before [...]

    21. Synopsis: Seattle police detective Joanne Walker started the year mostly dead, and she's ending it trying not to be consumed by evil. Literally.She's proven she can handle the gods and the walking dead. But a cannibalistic serial killer? That's more than even she bargained for. What's worse, the brutal demon can only be tracked one way. If Joanne is to stop its campaign of terror, she'll have to hunt it where it lives: the Lower World, a shamanistic plane of magic and spirits.Trouble is, Joanne' [...]

    22. To be honest, it took me awhile to get into this series. After a failed attempt at reading the first book, Urban Shaman, I decided to give it another try when a friend suggested that I read it. And, like the Dresden Files, I liked the book the second time around! Even though Joanne was a little annoying and extremely predictable, I was surprised to find that I enjoyed the book. After that, I ended up tearing through the series! However, this book just ended up sitting on my shelf for a year. I t [...]

    23. In some ways, I was more pleased with Demon Hunts than I was with the previous installment. A huge part of that is Gary. Making his first appearance rather early on and sticking around for most of the action, Gary brings enthusiasm to the story. As Joanne says, “Gary was my own personal cheer-o-meter,” and I echo the sentiment. I seem to forgive many things as long as he’s on hand to amuse me and support Joanne. I complained Walking Dead made me long for Jo to get additional training. This [...]

    24. My rating: 3 & 1/2 stars out of 5!*No spoilers!I’ve been planning on reading this series for a long time and when I got Demon Hunts, which is the fifth book the series, from NetGalley, i figured it was the perfect time to start. However because of time constrains I ended up reading this book before I got to read the previous 4. It was a huge change for, since I really don’t like reading book series out of order, ever.That said and even though I did feel like it would have been more excit [...]

    25. For weeks now, someone has been killing and well, munching on people in Seattle. Many detectives have been given a shot at cracking the case. However, when not one single shred of evidence is found at any scene, it is becoming clear the killer is most likely not human. Its up to Joanne and Billy to figure it out who the killer is and stop them quickly. After a nasty confrontation they find out the killer is a wendigo, a nasty soul-eating creature. Unlike her prior escapades, she is really outmat [...]

    26. Demon Hunts by CE Murphy*I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*Joanne is struggling to understand all of her Shaman powers. She has grown stronger in power as well as self confidence over the last few months. She still has a lot of internal conflict that she is having problems overcoming.Something is killing people in Seattle and it is up to her and her partner Billy Holliday to try and stop it.
