about

When Miranda Barnes first sees the sleepy town of St. Yvette, Louisiana, with its moss-draped trees, above-ground cemeteries, and her grandfather’s creepy historic home, she realizes that life as she knew it is officially over. Almost immediately, there seems to be something cloying at her. Something lonely and sad and . . . very pressing. Even at school and in the group project she’s been thrown into, she can’t escape it. Whispers when she’s alone, shadows when no one is there to make them, and a distant pleading voice that wakes her from sleep. The other members in Miranda’s group project, especially handsome Etienne, can see that Miranda is in distress. She is beginning to understand that, like her grandfather before her, she has a special gift of communicating with spirits who still walk the town of St. Yvette. And no matter where she turns, Miranda feels bound by their whispered pleas for help . . . unless she can somehow find a way to bring them peace.
Richie Tankersley Cusick is the author of numerous horror novels, including The House Next Door, April Fools, and several Buffy the Vampire Slayer books. She lives in Lenexa, Kansas.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright, I Guess The novel has a nice, attention-grabbing cover but the inside tells a different story. Walk of the Spirits was a slow novel and the back cover is rather misleading.It didn't pull me in like other novels can. It makes you believe there will be lots of spirits and that interesting events will happen. I felt it was the opposite- the pace was too slow and I kept waiting for something to actually happen. Some points of interest did finally come along but it didn't exacly lead to anything spectacular. There was the one- maybe two spirits- that did come along and which Miranda and her new friends did try to learn more about but nothing really happened. It was like: Miranda- I smell roses Friends (confused and worried)- We don't smell anything Miranda, are you okay? (Miranda runs away frightened and in denial) It was pretty much along those lines the whole novel, but Miranda does eventually accept who she is at least. I liked it but thought the this novel just could have been better. (I may sound harsh, but I just expected more from the novel...)
