Review: The Path Keeper
What if all our lives were mapped out before birth? Does anyone have the power to change their destiny?
Ella hates London. She misses her old life in Spain and is struggling to get over her past—until she meets Zac. He’s always loved her but isn’t meant to be part of her story. Not this time. Not ever. Little does she know that his secret is the one thing that will tear them apart and force her to live in a world that no longer makes sense. A world full of danger, lies and magic.
THE PATH KEEPER is a passionate tale of first loves, second chances and the invisible threads that bind us. Can love ever be stronger than fate?
From the very first page, I knew I was in for a treat. I requested an ARC for this because I was intrigued by the promise of "a world full of danger, lies and magic" in the synopsis. I didn't know what to expect but I did suspect angels had some part of it based on the beautiful cover art.
I devoured this book - I was fully invested in all of it and I couldn't wait to read more. I started reading it around 10 PM and had to put it down around 1 AM so that I would be functional for work the following day. But I only had about 20% left to read so I decided to wake up an hour earlier than I usually do to finish it. That was a huge mistake as I didn't know what to do with myself for a good 20 minutes or so after finishing it. How was I expected to go out and function as an adult when all I wanted to do was curl up in bed, immensely saddened by the cliffhanger? This was one of those books that made me feel a certain way that's hard to express. I loved it but it stirred a deeper emotion in me. I felt connected to Ella and her personal journey of love and discovery in the same way I was connected to Zac and his personal turmoil and inner conflict. I loved their love story - it was so genuine and heartfelt. All of the characters, main or supporting, had a role to play and a part to weave in their web of intertwined history. The connections between the characters and the past and present were done effortlessly and were so easy to follow, understand and get sucked in to.
This was so brilliantly done. I don't know what more to say because I don't think my words would do it justice. I can't wait to devour the next book in this series!
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
