Blurb: Dear Reader,
I wish to tell you a tale that began with a promise destined to change the lives of many.
When only a child, Lady Adele of Berron lost her family during a dreadful battle and was betrothed to a stranger.
Lord Rafe of Valrek, only a boy himself when the battle of Calis raged, grew to be a feared warrior and trusted advisor to his King. But sadness filled his past and Adele served only to remind him of all he had lost.
However the promise that bound these two together caused great anger to some.
What, Dear Reader, happened in those days of treachery and darkness? Incline your ear that I may whisper the secrets that you so desire to hear......
A copy of this book was provided by the author for review purposes.
I've had very few experiences with Indies before The Promise,and they were not that pleasant either.I found myself struggling to continue with those books.Which is why I had my doubts when I got an email from the author asking me to review her book.But the blurb seemed promising,so I went ahead with it.I already had a lot of review copies piled up so I had been neglecting this until one day I finally gathered up the courage to open up this book in my e reader.Now imagine my surprise when I found myself getting deeper and deeper into the story along with the passing of every page.At this point,I felt extremely guilty for neglecting such a wonderful story for so long!>.<
You know what they say about never judging a book by its cover?Well,I never even bothered to listen to that advice and it literally came and slapped me in the face!
The Promise had turned out to be a wonderful book right from the beginning till the end.No time was wasted with introductions; the author went straight to the point,which is a good sign,since I'm not much of a patient reader.The characters were portrayed wonderfully,and every single line draws you into a reverie.A must read for all fans of historical fiction.
