Brought to you by OBS reviewer Dawn The book begins by introducing two young men, Brandon and Drew. Their parents have been killed; they are sent to live with an aunt until Brandon is 18 and can take care of Drew on his own. I felt great sympathy for Drew; his world changed in an instant. I’ts obvious that Brandon knows more but will not share it. And this all takes place in the prologue. Next we meet Cassie. Cassie comes from two lines of witches making her a “mixed” witch. The only problem, she cannot tap into her powers. Do you recall, as a child, having an adult tell you they expect great things from you? It’s flattering but it can be turned inward, into perfectionism or being too hard on yourself. Cassie is way too hard on herself; she has boxed herself in. Cassie is an investigator for Tutela ab Veritas, a group that polices magick users. She has been told if she doesn’t tap into her gifts she may lose her job. That’s a lot of pressure, no wonder she’s plugged up and cannot access the witch part of herself. It was refreshing to see that Cassie had to struggle a bit to find herself. It’s not fun when a main character accidentally pops up able to handle anything thrown their way. It’s not believable. Cassie had to work at it and I REALLY like that about the book. Cassie is given one last chance to show what she can bring to the table. There’s a case involving Drew who currently co-owns a night club with his brother Brandon. She and her partners, Julia and Quan, set out to investigate. Cassie ends up thrown into the situation, forcing her to figure out her powers. The investigators find that Drew and Brandon are witches as well. Drew and Cassie end up discovering their power together. Their attraction is electric although I wish there had been more romance involved. I enjoyed the different types of witches and the displays of their powers; it’s creative. The action scenes were engrossing. There is an array of unique characters. I liked that the book dealt with religious issues and the reverse discrimination from religious zealots. But, I have a couple of problems with the book: 1) It is too slow starting out. There’s too much information about Cassie’s background. 2) The ending dragged on too long. I think at least 50 pages could have been cut from the book without affecting quality. That said, the writing, editing, plot, character development are just fine. It may just be me. If you’re looking for a good witch series, check this one out. You may really like it. This review and more at openbooksociety dot com

H.K. Savage built the tension and momentum like a freight train until reaching the incredible crescendo that ended up being more than I could have hoped for. To say that Savage has a talent for weaving plot, action, character development, and tension together to bring to life a fast-paced thrill ride would be an understatement. She effortlessly creates unique characters you can relate to while giving them those small qualities that makes them so believable. The Path is a creative approach to an age old story. "Witch Police". So unique and intriguing. I am eagerly awaiting her next installment where I can once again join Cassie Porter and her partners, Julia and Quan, on their next case to stop those who choose to use their powers to harm others. If you love a smart adventure, don't miss out on The Path by H.K.Savage.

I found myself putting off this book in the beginning because it was a little slow for the first couple of chapters. The fact that the story didn't grab me immediately, is one of the reasons I didn't give this book 4 stars. Once I decided to commit myself to getting past, what I hoped was just a rough beginning, I was very happy that I did! The story does, indeed, redeem itself just a few chapters in. I found that I was halfway through and totally invested in the characters in just a few hours. What I most thoroughly enjoyed about this story was that the main character, Cassie, really comes into her own by the end of the story. She started out unsure of herself and her talent as an investigator for Veritas, and a fledgling witch. After a chance meeting with the story's antagonist, however, Cassie discovered her power and just progressively gets more and more amazing. Also, I enjoyed the romantic aspect of the story. I found that Ms. Savage was able to weave the romance in while not at all taking away from the rest of the story and what was going on while Cassie and Drew's relationship changed. I will definitely read the next installment, in what I hope will be a series. I am a fan of Savage's writing. I give this book 3.5/5 stars!

The Path is a Paranormal Romance by author H.K. Savage. This novel centers around Cassie, a mixed blood witch who struggles with her powers. Cassie is an agent for Veritas, an agency that polices witches. Because of the issues with her own powers, Cassie is on the verge of losing her job and letting down her family. She basically has one more chance to prove herself – which is a difficult case involving one of the most horrible witches the company has ever dealt with. This is a great story involving witches, murder, mystery, and romance. Cassie is assigned to question Drew to see what his brother's connection is with the rogue witch, Terry Pritchard. It turns out, that Drew has some magick of his own that he is unaware of and Cassie ends up needing to protect him. With these two spending so much time together, it becomes hard for them to resist the attraction they feel for one another. This leads to some nice steamy moments – passionate but also PG-13 at the same time. For those of you who like a little steam without all the graphic details – this is for you! This book is well written and also well edited. The story was mostly told from Cassie's point of view, but the viewpoint sometimes changed to other characters. On one hand, I liked it because it was nice to know what the other characters were thinking – but at the same time it was sort of distracting. Parts of the book were a little slow, but then I felt that the ending was a little rushed. I didn't feel completely satisfied with the ending – I just wanted to know more about what happened. I don't know if this is going to be part of a series or if this is a stand alone book. Overall, it was a good book and I would read more by this author.
