The Promise

Book Description Provided by Goodreads: Armed with kick-ass shoes, can CJ stop a maniacal coven leader, save the town, and still get Mr. Melt In Your Mouth Gorgeous while surviving the darkness coming for her? The smoke from the fire burned her eyes, its heat caressed her skin and the taste of fear choked her. She was going to burn just as her ancestor did all those centuries ago in New Salem Village. How could she have been so wrong about everything? Cassie Jayne Bishop grew up the only non-believer in town of Coven. When a stranger comes to the sleepy town of New Salem, everything she thought was true unraveled around her. Ethan made her question everything, even her sister’s death. Clues start to pile up and Cassie is determined to find out if the Coven was the real reason her sister died. What she uncovers terrifies her to the very depths of her soul....

Story Line: I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised with the story line of this book. I don't read many books about witches although I love and am open to all sorts of paranormal book themes. Saying that I loved the concept of the Salem witches and I even loved it more due to the fact the most powerful among them is a non-believer! As for the story line itself I loved how it started out as almost a treasure hunt to uncover the mystery behind her sister's death but then turned into a race for survival.

Relationship: The relationship between CJ and Ethan (Matthew?) was most definitely instant and hilarious. Ethan and CJ seem to connect almost instantly and they make such an awesome yet secretive couple. I loved them together especially since they both love to rile the other up! Definitely entertaining to read about.

CJ (Cassie Jayne Bishop): I enjoyed reading about CJ's character because she's so strong willed and she's a fighter. When she has no one left to rely on she finds her own way out of sticky situations and won't let anyone boss her around (especially a certain M&M hehehe!) Oh and she has a killer sense of shoes style!

Ethan: Ethan seems to show up almost out of nowhere with more secrets than a boy that good looking should have! LOL! I completely loved him especially at the end, when the complexity of his character is revealed.

Overall: This book was a good read and not only was it about uncovering secrets but it was also about revenge, answers, trust, and sacrifice. This book will give you many little heart attacks at the end and fangirl moments through out the book but the biggest will be in the absolute last pages of the book!

Rating: I would give this book an 8!

About the Author:
So who am I? Well, I'm the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn't love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep. I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
