A more apt title for this dark story
might have been "Windwalker's Child," because it's set in motion by the actions of a 4-year-old. While some of the flashback scenes are disturbing, Carter successfully integrates her paranormal tale into contemporary Maryland.
Nathan's never forgotten Shannon, but he's startled to discover he has a child -- albeit one who claims to have a second father. If the elder Lange succeeds in snatching Daniel, opening the gate and welcoming the Windwalker, the end of the world could be at hand.
