About The Path
We’ve all been there that first day at a new school, terrified we won’t fit in and that we’ll be labeled with an unshakable designation that will follow us forever: Geek. Goth. Brain. Jock.
This is the shocking truth facing Delaney Connors, a level-headed, practical girl who discovers that everything she knows about herself is a lie. Her parents have been keeping a huge secret from her, the cute neighbour is great with a sword, the school’s queen bitch can turn her opponents into frogs, and her artsy new school is a gateway to a hidden world of magic. If this wasn’t enough, Delaney has to learn to master frightening magical powers before an ancient war spills over into our world. And then there’s her chemistry final…
Created by Kay Reindel and Erin Maher (Millennium, Legend of the Seeker), The Path is an urban fantasy - mixing the quirky sensibilities of “Veronica Mars” with “Once Upon a Times” modern approach to retelling classic fantasy.
