In The Windwalkers, a psychologist battles her inner demons to find the strength she needs to eliminate a new form of dependency that has permeated every facet of society. It is an intriguing blend of satisfying story line and a serious social consciousness that weaves together the quirky possibilities of a Dean Koontz novel with a feminine sensitivity.
The Windwalkers begins when Psychologist Liz Starling and Jack Thompson, ad agency executive, form a partnership to create an educational advertising campaign for Mental Health Awareness Month. During the course of their work, their focus turns to windwalkers, the temporary physical beings created psychically by people's needs and wants. Their existence is destroying any sense of personal responsibility and eliminating the need for genuine human interaction. The nightmare of a society driven by individual desire seems destined to become a reality. A strong proponent of this way of life is Psychiatrist Tennyson Pickett, Liz's supervisor and chief antagonist. All that stands in the way of this ugly inevitability are Liz, Jack, and Cherisse Scatliffe, an ancient woman sequestered in the wilds of the Virgin Islands. The provocative questions raised about human nature are certain to generate introspection and conversation.

Diane Fanning has plowed into the souls of human desire, fulfilling our fancy of having it all. But can people stop at want and need without hurting each other? Her thrilling psychodrama tied the city of San Antonio, Texas to the mystical world of St. John, Virgin Islands with lively human characters and realistic locations.Was this review helpful?
