While I may be partial to Michelle Belanger's works (because I think she is the "real thing"), Walking the Twilight Path really stands out from her other works and also from about every other book which pretends to be informed on this subject. This is a real landmark kind of book in the field of Occult studies, especially of the Darker paths. Right from the start, the book engages you with a very real and very sincere engagement with the land of the Dead, allowing the reader to reach through and connect with the forces beyond them.
What I found most comforting in this book (if the subject of death can be said to be comforting) was that there was no pseudo-Gothic romantic longings or quasi-theorizing on how cool death would be. From each step the reader takes through this book, one engages the land of the dead, the practices of the dead, and the tools with which to engage them, in a very factual, face-to-face, and confidant kind of way: this is real magick for real practitioners who want to really explore worlds beyond their imagination.
I must worn you though, this book works. If you are looking for books more out of a sense of how they affirm your inner Darkness, more because they look cool on your bookshelf next to your books on serial killers and vampires, there are other books out there that look equally cool in many ways. But be wise, this book, if you set to it, if you get into it, if you knock upon it, it will answer you. If you are looking for a book on the necromantic arts that works, you have found the way in.
I highly recommend this book to anyone serious about the Dark Arts, anyone who loves the rich traditions of watching a brilliant magician's career grow and blossom and increase the sensual (as in the range of our six senses) joy of the lived magickal experience, anyone who is a fan of Michelle Belanger's amazing work and career, anyone who wishes to push beyond their own boundaries of how they understand and communicate with, Death. Buy this book. There is great work to be done!
