The Problem with Promises by Leigh Evans

Mystwalker, Book 3

Synopsis: NEVER MAKE A PROMISE…

Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore and my gorgeous mate, tries to protect me, Hedi Peacock, half-Fae, half-were, from all the trouble I get into. The thing is, my past is pretty messy and bad guys keep knocking down my door. Witches, thug bikers, the North American Council of Weres, dark magic Fae, and even an evil wizard are all after me. The Old Mage is the only one I really care about: He has my dear twin brother captive on the other side of the Gates of Merenwyn—not cool. So my alpha love is helping me to keep my promise to free my brother…

YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO KEEP.

Unfortunately, everyone who helps me ends up in a heap of trouble too—including my Trowbridge. Now, I admit I’ve had my moments as a shivering coward, hoping he will come to my brave rescue. The whole Prince Charming thing is hard to shake. But these bad guys after me mean business and those damsel in distress days are over. You know that “last straw” metaphor? That was two straws ago. It’s now or never. Again…

Review: This is a series that I like but it’s true that I always struggle to get into it… as for each novel elsewhere. I think we always need to persevere to be able to appreciate the rest of the book, because it is still worth a shot. I was also quite surprised to find the story right after the end of the second novel, which does not happen often.

Trowbridge is back but changed even if Hedi is now happy to have him with her, there is still so much to do. Yes because trouble always seem to find her between her promise to her brother and her desire to save him or the members of the council who are trying to kill herwithout her understanding the reason. Yes, she will have a lot to deal with. And thus we’re following our heroine in a mad rush, full of surprises, even if it is true that very few are good. And while she hoped to return to a normal life, it seems that none of this is possible now or in the future. And even the persons she cares about may well disappoint her in a way she could never have imagined. However, she also discovers that some would do anything for her and her soulmate.

Hedi has evolved a lot over the novels and does not hesitate to deal with problems and use all the gifts she has in her heart to achieve her objectives. I was quite impressed to see that she didn’t let things happen anymore and she now takes the lead, whatever others may say. Her life has never been easy and nothing seems to work out anyway, but it’s a pleasure to see what will happen. We also have some news about Lex, and it is true that just like her, everything about him breaks our heart, and I really hope that she will eventually find a way to save him, which I’m sure will be painted in more details in the next novel. Trowbridge is always the same and I love him as much for it, with a lot of responsibilities but also very protective when it’s about Hedi. So yes, a story full of characters we love and who will face many hardships together, big bad guys of course, in a story that has a more sustained pace. As I said, we must come to ignore the difficulty of the first chapters to get into the novel and to only exit at the end. Because, as always, the author had some very interesting ideas and a conclusion that makes us want to know more. I am very curious to have a chance to read on to discover how our couple will be able to manage this new problem now closing on them.

  1. It happens, but it looks like you did a good thing sticking around and seeing where the story continues to go 🙂 it didn’t seem to disappoint you. I do like the sound of this one.

    Sorry for the delay in comments, it’s been a long month!
