My Review

I absolutely loved this book!!!  I probably would have never read this book so I am glad I participate din this tour.  I really need to listen to that phrase "never judge a book by its cover."  I do that a lot of times.  I will buy a book if I love the cover.  I am not too crazy with the cover on Dark Promise, but I loved the book.  I am going to try not to do that so much anymore.

Dark Promise was a beautifully written story with a well crafted plot.  I have always love fey books so I couldn't wait to read this one.  This book took me on a magical journey of love, adventure and discovery.  I was completely enthralled with this story.  Once I started this book, I couldn't put id down.  I love being drawn into a story that makes me feel as if I am apart of the story, right there along with the characters.  The authors did a great job with that.  I was able to see what the characters saw, feel what they felt. 

I loved every character in this book.  I never like the evil doers, but always seem to like the others.  Rylie was a characters that anyone could relate to.  She had a perfect life, perfect boyfriend.  Then all of a sudden her mother shows up and she get whisks to faery.  I loved being on this adventure with her.  Adam iis such a sweet guy.  I was immediately in love with him.  I loved Kallan as well.  Both guys are perfect.  I love reading books with love triangle. Almost always, I can pick my favorite guy.  There always seems to be an obvious choice every time.  Not in this one.  I love both guys.  I am so torn between the two.  One of them is definitely going to get heartbroken.

This book was full of awesomesauce!!!  I am already wanting to read it again.  The ending of this story definitely left me wanting more.  I need the sequel NOW!!!!  This is a must read everyone!!!  Read it now!!!
