Much of the city can't wake up. And more are dozing off each day. Instead of powerful forces storming Seattle, a more insidious invasion is happening. Most of Joanne Walker's fellow cops are down with the blue flu—or rather the blue sleep. Yet there's no physical cause anyone can point to—and it keeps spreading. It has to be magical, Joanne figures. But what's up with the crazy dreams that hit her every time she closes her eyes? Are they being sent by Coyote, her still-missing spirit guide? The messages just aren't clear.

Joanne is finally coming into her own, however the personal sacrifice she makes at the end of the book still has me heartbroken. This was so far my favorite of the series as it featured more interaction with Jo and her friends showing she is on the right track maintaining a balance between her duty...
Her forays into the dreamworld/trance-states/nether are so topsy-turvy. So much time was spent there this book and I was a little bored by the end. I never felt a sense of urgency there like you do when she's in the "real world". I like the focus on her interpersonal relationships a lot more.
