Does she tell her friends? Then comes a third guy into the picture vying for Abbey’s heart – and he instinctively knows who she is and that they are destined to be together Nathan’s not making it easy on Abbey as she struggles to stay true to Kaleb and out of the grips of the stalking wolf changeling Darrian who always seems to be one step ahead of Abbey’s posse of protectors Meanwhile Abbey learns the true identity of her guardian who is connected to KalebThis novel was so much than I expected and I was amazed at the range of change and growth in the main characters Abbey struggles with many decisions throughout the novel and the problems that develop the harder it is for her Through the narration readers are privy to the change in Abbey that reflect that she will be a kind just but strong ueen Abbey’s character is one who must come to terms with the fact that she’s not normal she’s the ueen in hiding and while reading all I could think when I read narration from Abbey’s thoughts was how graceful she was in her attitude and mentalityThe novel was also uniue in that a few chapters are denoted to be told from Kaleb’s point of view in first person so readers get insight into his thoughts and can understand his emotions There is a chapter where this differentiation from the narration is crucial so I applaud the authors’ use of this techniueIt is a wonderful thrilling read and I could not put it down I fell asleep with my Kindle several nights The novel ends in somewhat of a lurch but in a nice way which I expect is going to open the conflict in the seuel Warrior’s Oath I’m looking forward to great things in Warrior’s Oath I expect Hines and Bigham to deliver and I am betting I won’t be disappointed

Most children grow up in loving homes with parents who tell them bedtime stories Not Abbey She spent her childhood training for a battle that always seemed too far away to ever become real In a world of Elementals now corrupted and misguided by the ruling families a ueen must ris Review with SpoilersSacred Promises tells the story of Abbey a ueen born in secrecy and kept hidden away until she turns 18 Abbey is the ueen of a race of magical folks elementals mystics warriors and shapeshifters There hasn't been a ueen in 200 years because they have been killed by unknown enemies possibly one or two power hungry ruling families Anyways the first book doesn't dwell much on it and I expect that it will come up in the following bookThe first book deals with Abbey attending a special school where she finally gets to interact with her folks She grew up bouncing around in orphanages and foster care homes because it was the only way to keep her safeThe premises of Sacred Promises is very good but for the first half not much happened Abbey just goes with the motions she makes friends very easily she falls in love with her mentor she acuires a psycho stalker you know the normal stuff lol I think my main problem with the first half was that Abbey was just too perfect She excelled at everything there wasn't an imperfect bone in her body Granted that was the premise of being ueen She would be good at stuff but she missed some sort of flaw to make her layered and easy to relate to Besides none of her classmates developed an ounce of jealousy that Abbey was so good in every subject The only jealous person in the book was Maria and that was guy related In conseuence all of Abbey's closest friend sounded the same I couldn't tell them apart well Lawrence I could because he was the only guyThings start to get interesting when Abbey despite all of her powers fail to keep stalker Darian away from her It was the only time she actually showed any sign that she wasn't completely perfect Granted I think the Darian situation was stretched out way too much One or two confrontations okay But I think there were around 4 confrontations where Abbey and her warriors failed to deal with Darian One starts to think that if they took so long to deal with one lousy shapeshifter how do they plan to keep Abbey safe from her would be killers?Kaleb was a descent hero but things got way better when Nathan entered the picture A YA book wouldn't be complete without a love triangle I don't think all plots need one to make things move along but Sacred Promises kind of needed it Besides I like Nathan better just because he probably doesn't stand a chance in hell I would like to see a YA author change things up a little bit and not have the heroine end up with the obvious choice But I think I'm the minorityOverall it was an enjoyable read and I'm curious to see what happens next in Warrior's Oath
