On the run for much of the book, Cal leans on Bear and some good souls along the way.

The Darkest Path

Cal is caught and taken back before President Hill. He realizes that Hill plans to attack major cities in the United States and he is using people's belief in him and in God to control his campaign, and nothing and no one can stop him.

Or can they? The Darkest Path is one edgy, dark dystopia I never want to visit. This was a frightening vision of America and what could happen in our near future, and it is one vision I hope never comes true. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy dystopian fiction grade 7-up.

Those they capture are give the choice: Join or Be Killed. Fifteen-year-old Callum Roe and his younger brother, James, were captured by the Glorious Path -- a militant religion based on the teachings of a former U.

As a war rages between the Path and what's left of the U. But soon Cal is presented with an opportunity to move up in the Path's ranks, putting him on the verge of becoming one of the Path's deadliest secret agents.


Then Cal befriends a stray dog named Bear and kills a commander who wants to train Bear to be a vicious attack dog. This sends them both on the run, and sets in motion a series of incredible events that will test Cal's loyalties and end in a fierce battle that the fate of the entire country rests on.

Partly because it is a physical book, I think. At night I mostly read on my Kindle because it is more convenient. But I also think the plot just wasn't that compelling.

The blurb on the book jacket see above sounds very exciting. But the story just didn't live up to the excitement.

Maybe if I had read just this book all at once, it would have been more enjoyable. The bond between Cal and Bear really touched me.

Once Bear trusted Cal, he was a faithful companion and would never leave Cal's side.


But I just didn't get some of the actions Cal took when it came to Bear. Even though one time especially it was for Bear's own good, it really bothered me. Nathan Hill wasn't a very scary villain and we didn't get to know him enough to feel his motives or to hate him.

I hated the organization The Path more than I hated Hill. I get why Cal and James agreed to join, they didn't want to die.
