I'm reading the first of that series called the Walker Papers by C.E. Murphy. She's kinda' interesting to me as she was born in Homer Alaska (I lived in Alaska for 1/2 of the 60's), writes this Urban Fantasy (presently my favorite genre) series about a 27 year old female native American Shaman and Catie Murphy (the author's actual name) presently lives in Ireland (a lot of Celtic mythology seems to be included in this first book, Urban Shaman). Also my college degree is in Anthropology and am interested in both Celtic and Native American mythology.

I'll be back and catch up on the threads I missed after I finish the book.
Oh don't stop checking in here, just avoid clicking on spoilers.

Now I start reading this thread and realize it is 96 pages so far ... need to put my nose down to it and start reading seriously. Am so far on book 9.
If you've gotten to book 9 you're definately one of us, that is 'HOOKED'!

Poor Molly, hasn't she gone through enough? I think she will do well though. Maybe it will give her something else to focus on other than Harry. Or the mantle will make the feelings toward him even more intense. Can't wait to find out.

I missed not having Lea, she was amazing in Ghost Story. I hope she's back for the next book.

It was nice to see Murphy being called by her first name. She really needs to take up the sword already. It's like she's drifting in the middle of nowhere. I think it would really help her emotionally to have a steady "job".

I knew there was waaaay more to Mac than met the eye.


Soooooo when's the next book coming out?
My guess is Spring or early Summer?

Can't say that myself yet, as I am only into Proven Guilty first time around. Seeing how much these books are so tightly woven into each other, I can already imagine how much more I will get out of them rereading them. For me it did not even take to finish the first chapter in Storm Front to be hooked to the series.

Welcome to the crazy huge world of the Dresden-verse. We usually don't bite here in this thread. Glad you like and enjoy the series.
Gee, you must be 'HOOKED'! too!

Well that beats my 3 times, oh well.
