I loved the synopsis of this book A religion professor finding out that she is a shamaness in the Chinese tradition and then meeting up with witches from another tradition Yes pleaseIt starts out delightfully creepy She is starting to have visions of the spirit world She meets a coven of witches who bring her into a ritual and abandon her naked the next day and she doesn t remember what happened A horse takes her for a ride to meet a mysterious sculptorBut then it turns into a murder mystery Yeah didn t see that comingI lost a lot of interest at this point The weirdness was gone She still talks to ghosts but they just want her solve the mystery Also suddenly every man is falling in love with her and wants to marry her the moment they meet her This isn t even based on romance or attraction or anything They just suggest getting marriedI wish there had been a better sense of place She went to a culture that is unfamiliar to her but she is conveniently fluent in Spanish so she has no communication difficulties She doesn t really explore the islands She holes up in a castle and in an abandoned village that could have been set anywhere I never read anything that I felt could only have happened in this settingHer exploration of her Chinese spiritual heritage was much better but I wish there had been exploration of the witches she came to findThis review was originally posted on Based On A True Story
