If you like fantasy with a lot of drama and star crossed lovers thrown in, Promise (Soul Savers) by author, Kristie Cook is a must read.

The book takes you on a fantasy trip as told through the voice of Alexis Ames. She’s a somewhat typical teenager, going to college except she finds she’s not quite like other teenagers or not quite like other humans at all. She’s always known she has quirks that make her weird compared to others.

Even as a youth, she and her mom moved constantly. Her mom, Sophia, never seems to age, and Alexis, herself, heals whenever she is cut or hurt. She asks her mom continually about the reasons behind why those things are, but Sophia never seems to want to reveal things and changes the subject. It’s not until she meets an extremely handsome college classmate named Tristan that things start to seem even weirder. When Alexis finally brings him home to meet Sophia, her mom instantly acts as if she hates him and abruptly leaves the room.

The storyline develops and more and more are revealed to the reader. Alexis and her mom are exceptional people from a society known as the Amadis and Tristan was born (on purpose) by their enemy society the Daemoni as a superior warrior with genes developed to kill their enemy, and select enemy is the Amadis. Alexis’ mother reacts that way to Tristan because she knows him, has known him for generations. She also knows that he has given up his life with the Daemoni and become one of the Amadis, but she’s not sure he’s 100% changed.

As the story goes on, Alexis, finds that she has been promised to Tristan since birth, but as things are revealed to Alexis about herself, her mother and Tristan's powers, she’s revolted and turns away. Eventually, she comes to realize that she has ulterior strengths, and has been told that once the Ang’dora happens to her, she will change and become exactly like her mother and the rest of the Amadis. She will never age, her true powers will be full force, and in order for their society to continue, she must marry Tristan and have a daughter to carry on the line.

The book erupts into the war between the two cultures once Tristan and Alexis are married. The Daemoni are angry because they want Tristan back and Alexis back with him so they can defeat and be the rulers.

The battle rages on between the two cultures as the writer reveals more and more of who these two societies are, where they originated and how they are intertwined with Alexis, Tristan and their families.

This first in the series leaves you wanting more information page after page as the story develops the love between Tristen and Alexis, the mysteries surrounding Sophia and their backgrounds. It promises to not be a disappointment as the writer takes you on a fictional fantasy that boggles the mind at times.

This is the first in a series and promises to reveal more about Tristan, Alexis and the Amadis and Daemoni in the books to come.

It is a tantalizing read, hard to put down once you start the book. If you like books that take you on an adventure into fantasy-land, you’ll love this one.
