Interestingly enough, our main character and her daughter, who are mourning the loss of their husband and father, are what you would call "walkers." They have the uncanny ability to leave their bodies whenever they choose, projecting their "selves" into a spirit plain where they can see each other and average people who cannot see them. Talk about an advantage over others. Cora, the mom and main character, has not "walked" in a very long time because of something that occurred during her childhood, something that she is afraid could repeat itself. These evil and frightening memories are dominated by a massive man with silver hair, a killer.
I never would have put two and two together and arrived at the conclusion that the idea of the walkers was drawn from the few words spoken of Enoch in the Bible if not for the help of the author, or at least without reading much further into the book. For those of you who remember, "Enoch walked with The Lord all of his days and then was taken into heaven." This book really gives "walking" a definition and one that I found impressive.
As little Grace and Cora continue to blossom from their hard shells of mourning—or lack thereof in Cora's case—they begin to meet others like themselves, and eventually Cora is moved to walk again. After breaking her promise never to do so, will she meet with this evil man from her past? The odds say no, but Cora knows better. The man with the silver hair has been waiting.
At this point, the book really takes off into another realm where religion and urban fantasy mesh together in harmony and the "offspring" is one of the best ideas for an urban fantasy book I've read. Janet Allison Brown is a fine author. She has allowed her mind to fabricate an authentic new idea and has given it to her soul to pen. Read up, you won't regret it. Tell me what you think downstairs.
