Format: Paperback
I began reading this book out of curiosity, to see if a self-published book lived up to the quality of a traditionally published one. And you know what? It didn't just 'live up to' the standard, but soared beyond it.

It is told from the perspective of Alexis, an eighteen-year old protagonist, so when you begin reading, it seems like Young Adult fiction (though the content definitely is not). This threw me a little because I don't read YA. But once I got over the 'young' voice, and started focusing primarily on the story, I was pleasantly surprised. It had me up late at night to 'just read another chapter', until I couldn't hold my head up any longer. When books do this to me, it's a success.

I'm a really fussy reader. I don't have any inclination to pick up a paranormal fantasy novel. So for a paranormal fanatasy novel, that reads like YA to hook me, the writer has to be good. And Kristie Cook is GOOD!

If you're looking for delicate elitist literary prose, then this book isn't for you. But if you're looking for an entertaining story to transport you into another world, to forget your woes, routine or monotony of the everyday, then pick this up. You won't be disappointed! I thoroughly enjoyed something that I thought I never would. So thank you, Kristie, for the wonderful experience!

This book shocked me. I really didn't know what to expect, but I truly didn't expect to be up all night reading it and to be completely blown away by the writing, story line, and characters. This book begins 9 years ago (from where book 2, Purpose, will pick up) and is from the point of view of Alexis. Alexis knows she is different but she realizes that even more once she is attacked by creatures that shouldn't even exist. Her mother tries to keep the truth from her and they move often to get away from possible dangers.

Then Alexis meets Tristan, who is gorgeous, mysterious, and seems to be very interested in Alexis. Alexis's mom instantly wants her to stay away from Tristan, and the fact that they seem to already know each other is obvious. An accident leads Alexis to find out the truth about herself, Tristan, and the creatures that are after her.

The writing in this book is outstanding! The way Kristie describes emotions, settings, and actions is so unique. It starts out with the best first few lines I think I have ever read in a book. I posted them on the excerpts post but I will post them again.

"The sensation of being watched clung to me like a spider web, invisible threads bristling the back of my neck and down my spine. I brushed my fingers across my shoulders, as if I could drag the feeling off and flick it away."

How can you NOT want to read more after reading that? Alexis and Tristan are so passionate about each other and even though they have their issues to work out, their love shines through each page. They felt so real! The story takes a lot of twists and turns and will leave you guessing the entire time. What exactly is Tristan, where does their connection come from, and will it all work out?

Growing up can be hard when you are normal but when you are different it can be a nightmare. For Alexis, she has always been considered a freak even more so when an incident occured in her science class and the class caught her. Alexis has the ability to heal herself immediately , in ways she reminded me of Claire from the hit TV Show Heroes - a cross between her and Mercy Thompson from Patrica Briggs novels. Every couple of months , Alexis and her mother Sophia have been moving and running - Alexis's life has been a constant upheavel of different surnames and different towns. She has never felt anywhere so peaceful until recently - their latest move in where Alexis starts college unfortunately Alexis has been suffering visions and nightmares of people after her - Has it got something to do with her abilities ? Enter Tristan , he is the hot guy on campus and surprise , surprise he is interested or so it seems in Alexis. As the novel progresses we see Alexis fall for Tristan but it seems he is hiding a dark secret abot his past and he knows more about Alexis than she even knows . As the romance blossoms , we start to wonder whether their love is for real or does Tristan have an ulterior motive ?
Alexis also discovers in Promise , her family heritage and a Pandora's box is open and secrets are revealed.
Will Alexis life ever return to normal or is the change and discoveries only just beginning ?
Find out in Kristie Cook's novel Promise - Book #1 in the Soul Savers Series.

It can't just be me. It can't, right?
I feel like I was reading a completely different book than the other reviewers. I find this book an utter rushed piece of work!
I don't usually review books, but I was so shocked at the reception that I had to include my two cents. There should be at least one person who agrees with my opinion. The protagonist, Alexis, is frankly an imbecile. She's considered a "good daughter" and whatnot, but she just seemed like...a dolt. Tristan has to be the most ridiculous eye candy in the world. Stereotypical good looks, ripped abs, the pet names ("my lykita"? Are you KIDDING me? I skipped over his dialogue to keep from ripping my hair out). Their contrived banter sent me into confused giggles. Come on - we've all read the fake modest interactions, the obsessive ogling, the attention from males, but it doesn't need to be shoved down our throats.
Back to the story plot...if there IS one. I wasn't as impressed as others about the mythological aspect of the novel, but respected Ms. Cook for trying something other than the dull norm. The downside was that I didn't find myself engaged in the history. I skimmed past the part where everything was explained and hoped for some real meat of the story.
But I was asking too much, of course.
Right from page one, I was scoffing and laughing at the situations our good old Alexis got into. Hello? It's Damsel In Distress 101: All girls must get saved countless times by Man Hunk and swoon over him and his large muscly bod. Instead of going into a subtle romance plot, we were thrust into some unconvincing cutesy flirting period and limitless "running into". Sometimes quite literally. And Ms. Cook, instead of building a relationship between the two leads, tells us that they became close over a few months' time.
