So far the story is going in circles.
Paranormal element - 1%.
Mystery/suspense - 10% (maybe).
Romance - 0%.
Character(s) study - 50%.
Self loathing - 39%.
General assholery from all directions - way over the top.
I am afraid to do word count for "shaman" and "con".
I can't say the story is tiresome yet, but it's getting there :/
