Shaman Rises - C.E. Murphy

I liked this series but I feel this book was not quite the culmination I had hoped for.  In fact, I'm going to timidly say this series could have ended about 2 books back.  It was good, not great and I'm sorry to say I'm so tired of all the shamanic tricks and garden descriptions that I was starting to skim.  I'm glad this the last book because I don't want the series to have ended badly.  :(
