It's rare to read a book that combines knowledgeable information about spiritual subject matter with a gripping story. They can end up preachy or plain boring. This is neither.

Hunter McKenzie is a boy lost. Then he loses everything in a terrible accident, during which he dies and then, by some inexplicable miracle, comes back to life. Losing everything brings him from his home in America to his Grandmother's house in Exmoor, where he finds that he'd lost far more than he ever dreamed. The knowl

This Y/A novel was intriguing in the displacement of the young main character being out of his comfort zone in more ways than one. The description of the settings were superb. I would love to read a continuation of this story.

My biggest (and only) complaint about "Walker" is that the story ended far too soon! *grin* Hunter and Rowan quickly became my friends(well, friends of the perpetual teenager that lives inside my head) and I wanted their adventure to continue on. Totally mesmerizing and authentic - I've done a small amount of "walking" myself, and those scenes in particular gave me goosebumps. I hope this is the start of a series!

I know Walker is classified as a YA – the MC’s are fifteen - but it is a book for all ages.

I really liked how age-appropriate the dialogue was here. Both Hunter and Rowan spoke like teenagers. For a while the concept that Ruth just

The sense of place in this book is completely charming. The land itself becomes another character, one you care about just as much as the two young heroes. This is an atmospheric read, one full of interest and wonder.
