Book Description


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…



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…


The Problem with Promises is the third Mystwalker Novel from Leigh Evans.


 “A brilliant new take on fairies, werewolves, and magic…I am officially addicted."

—Chloe Neill, New York Times bestselling author

4.0 out of 5 stars Review: The Problem with Promises February 25, 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rating: A- Enjoyed it a lot

Note: This review contains spoilers from the first two books.

As with most urban fantasy series, the Mystwalker series books should be read from the beginning and in order, or the reader will miss out on substantial world development and character growth. In fact, I don’t know that I would have enjoyed The Problem with Promises nearly as much if I hadn’t spent my time in the trenches with Hedi and Robson. So with that, I highly recommend that any reader new to this series start with the first book, The Trouble with Fate.

The Mystwalker series chronicles the story of Hedi Peacock, a half-werewolf, half-fae who doesn’t fit in among either of the races. Her “one true thing” and mate Robson Trowbridge, is alpha to a pack of werewolves who don’t really know him and aren’t fans of Hedi. The Problem with Promises opens a couple of hours after the conclusion of the previous book, The Thing About Weres. The central characters are all present to discuss strategy and create a plan of action to deal with two major events that occurred in the prior book. The first involves saving Hedi’s twin brother, Lexi, and the second is damage control with the ruling werewolf council (NAW) after Robson killed its emissaries. This leads to much action and adventure as Hedi must fight, once again, to save those closest to her.

I’m just going to put this out there... The Problem with Promises is heads and tails above the previous two stories. While I enjoyed both books, I had some issues that kept me from elevating the stories to “one of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! Best book of the series! February 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's been quite a rocky road for Hedi and Trowbridge. From the moment their paths recrossed in book 1 (The Trouble With Fate), it's been a steady stream of highs, lows, close calls and near-death experiences - and that was just the beginning! In The Problem With Promises, the series reaches new and crazy heights. It isn't just another book, it is THE book - the one we have all been waiting for.

Leigh Evans wastes no time throwing readers - and her characters - right back into the thick of things. Hedi and Trowbridge scarcely have a chance to catch their breath after the events of book 2 (The Thing About Weres) before they are once again up to their eyeballs in trouble. Forget downtime, and say goodbye to any fond dreams of cozying up in front of a fire enjoying a snuggle with your One True Thing. Hedi and Trowbridge have a date with destiny, and saying "no thanks, I'll take a raincheck" is not an option.

The action is non-stop. The danger is constant. EVERYTHING is on the line. EVERYONE is in danger. NO ONE is safe. It should have been utter chaos, but Leigh Evans doesn't skip a single beat. She deftly juggles all the different story elements to create what is, by far, her best book to date.

The shining star of Promises is undoubtedly Hedi. Her mouse-hearted days are officially over. She's tired of being caught in a tug of war between her Fae and her wolf, and she's had enough of this whole "knocked down, pushed around" business. After two books of abuse and self-doubt, she's finally digging her heels in, raising a defiant finger to fate, Karma, and all her naysayers, and taking a stand not only for herself, but for those she loves.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, I give up. March 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high hopes but this series is going nowhere inspite of interesting setting. Heidi will never grow neither a brain nor a spine nor make peace with any or all parts of herself. Towbridge keeps loving her no matter what comes down. And no one ever gets anywhere. Still a tremendous stress is present at all times.

**Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy**

THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES really starts to open up the Mystwalker world. We find out more about the fae, we meet some witches and other shifters, and Hedi and Trowbridge have to deal with some serious were politics. An action packed third installment in the series, THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES never seems to let up, constantly hitting the reader with revelations, fights or dramatic decisions. You definitely don’t have to worry about being bored with this one.

I had some mixed feelings about Hedi and her actions until she finally started to step up near the middle of the novel. She went from being rather passive to being the more assertive Hedi that we remember from THE TROUBLE WITH FATE. I really like Hedi as a main character. She has a lot of depth to her, and Hedi’s internal narration is one of my favorite parts of these books. Evans’ writing really allows the reader inside Hedi’s head, and it is rewarding to see her thoughts and feelings as she changes and things change around her.

The Mystwalker series isn’t one I’d pick up starting with book three. First off, you’d miss all the deliciousness that is Hedi and Trowbridge’s relationship in book one, and secondly, you’d probably be super confused. Evans has created a whole new mythology for her series, and while fascinating, it can be a bit confusing. Coming into the middle of the storyline may prove too off-putting to readers, and it would be a shame to pass on this series because of that.

The fourth and final book of the Mystwalker series, THE DANGER OF DESTINY comes out March of next year. I can’t wait to see how Hedi’s story wraps up, and hopefully see her finally come completely into her own.

More About the Author

I was born in Montreal, Quebec but now live in Southern Ontario with my husband. I've raised two kids, mothered three dogs, and herded a few cats. Other than that, my life was fairly routine until I hit the age of 50. Some women get tattoos. I decided to write a book. A little tardy, but then again, Mum always said I was a late bloomer.

So how old are you now?
I'm not telling you.

Have you always written?
No. I wrote about that here: That post is the first of many that charts my journey from the start of writing Hedi's story to winning my agent, Deidre Knight, through the Speed-Dating-With-Deidre contest hosted on The Knight Agency blog.

Is The Trouble With Fate your first novel?
Yes. With all the hell that implies.

Do you have plans for more?
Indeed I do. St. Martin's Press has contracted me for four books. I delighted to add that the UK has picked up on the Mystwalker series too!

Were you always so awesome?
Sorry to disappoint, but I was the kid with the speech impediment in grade school and the wrong hem-length in high school. Let's not even discuss college, where I discovered all the things that were cool and not so cool, and realized that I probably fell into the latter category. Truth be told, I doubt I'll ever be awesome, but damn, I keep trying.

Seriously, how old are you?
I'm still not telling you.

Is there a bottom line in life?
Yes. Never give up. Ever. Even bad things eventually turn around. Take that from someone who'd all but farmed herself out into the pasture.

You can reinvent yourself. You truly can.
