Shadow Walkers - A Gay Teen Paranormal Thriller (and Romance!)

By Brent Hartinger

Here's Brent's rundown on what Shadow Walkers is about:

Zach lives with his grandparents on a remote island in Puget Sound in Washington State. With only his little brother, Gilbert, to keep him company, Zach feels cut off from the world. But when Gilbert is kidnapped, Zach tries the only thing he can think of to find him: astral projection. Soon, his spirit is soaring through the strange and boundless astral realm — a shadow place. While searching for his brother, Zach meets a boy named Emory, another astral traveler who's intriguing (and cute).

As Zach and Emory track the kidnappers from the astral realm, their bond grows, but each moment could be Gilbert's last. Even worse, there's a menacing, centuries-old creature in their midst that devours souls and possesses physical bodies. And it's hungry for Zach.

And here's a great video Brent made - not so much a "book trailer" as his own "Seven Reasons You Should Read Shadow Walkers:"

I am so so so looking forward to reading this! It hasn't even arrived at the library yet and someone else got ahead of me putting a hold on it.

I was interested even before I saw a video with a cute cat in it. Because I heard that this book is sort of like Stranger With My Face by Lois Duncan, only gay. And Stranger With My Face is one of my favorite books, so how could Shadow Walkers not be great? Also I read Brent Hartinger's Order of the Poison Oak and I liked that, so I have high expectations.
