Promises was one of my most anticipated books of the year as I adored the previous two books, that meant the pressure was on Kahlen to give me a thrilling, intense and satisfying end to one of my favourite series of all time. Did she succeed? Most definitely! Promises was all I expected and then some.
We left Angel and Alex all loved up, finally breaking down their walls and accepting they were just meant to be together. Well we all know the course of true love never did run smooth and there is a massive bump in the road by the name of Swanson. Not satisfied with almost killing Angel once, he's back for more and Kahlen takes us on dramatic game of cat and mouse that leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat.
The strength and passion that we've seen from Alex throughout the series is tested to the max with his life and the lives of the people he cares about are on the line and he's determined to come out on top. Can he put an end to Swanson before it's too late? Will the chance he took with Angel all have been in vain? Is the heart that had never felt love before Angel gonna be trampled on and broken in two? One thing's for sure my heart was put through the wringer constantly! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and yet I wanted to savour every single moment.
Kahlen's writing keeps you hooked throughout, this is one hell of an emotional ride and one I didn't want to end. I'm not ready to let go of Alex yet, please don't make me! This is series is going down as not only one of the best I've read this year but one of the best I've ever read. The only problem is I'm not ready to let go of Alex yet!! Please write more Kahlen, how about Cole's story?
