At one time in my life, I loved fantasy fiction and devoured every book in the genre that I could get my hands on. It has been a long time since I delved into this area, but Woodwalker was a great story to bring me back to the fold. Not exactly a magical fantasy, and the story was grounded in reality and used familiar settings, plants and animals, but there was an otherworld feel to the cultures described. The plot was quietly interesting and the author was deft in revealing details about the world through the story line and dialogue. Enjoyable and a pleasant, fast read.
