The Path Keeper is an urban fantasy love story and Book One of the Indigo Chronicles.

The story opens in London. Zac is waiting for Ella, a girl that he has watched over for millennia. It’s Zac’s job to nudge Ella along the right life-path.

Ella is a university student; she’s currently living with her mother and step-father, but she was brought up in Spain. I really wanted to like Ella and hoped that her Spanish upbringing would shine through in her characterisation.

We are also introduced to another story thread, this one set in London during 1940. Evie and Dolly are best friends, but their lives are caught up in the tragedies of World War Two.

I like a paranormal romance, but I needed more convincing from these characters. With a little more fleshing out, they would have been so much more believable.

The story also has a level of sexual content which some readers might not expect from a book which is marketed as young adult.

Overall a promising story, but it left me rather disappointed. I read an ARC copy of this book from its latest publisher.

Book description

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?
