The mysteries are nicely set up and the outcome is unexpected. One thing I enjoy about Edwards' writing is that her books give you enough clues about the mysteries at their heart that they make sense when the revelation comes, without giving so much information that you can guess where the story is going before it gets there. The romance angle of her books tends to be somewhat more predictable, but there are still plenty of twists and turns on the way there.
'Promise the Moon' follows the 3 book Gemini Series from Dell Preston's point of view. Dell fought hard for her position as Beta in the Lorimar Pack and she will do everything she can to protect them in the absence of their Alphas, Greyson and Cam.
Dell and her pack have been tasked with 'keeping the peace' between Earth and Fairy by monitoring the magical rift that opened up in Butler, Tennessee. Unfortunately, this town is also full of humans who are unaware of Supernaturals and Dell needs to keep it that way, at all costs.
Disappearances start occurring along with some otherworldly storms targeting the town and Dell is asked to investigate by a victim's daughter. With the help of her pack, a flirty witch (Enzo Garcia), and her ex-boyfriend (Isaac Cahill) they will work to resolve these kidnappings-but what will it cost Dell?
I really enjoyed Dell's character in the previous series and was SUPER excited that the author decided to do a series based on her. However, I have mixed feelings on how this book turned out which I think has more to do with the gazillion unanswered questions I have-haha! Be warned that this story ends on a cliff hanger. SPOILERS START HERE!!!!
I love the fearless, take-no-crap, dominate warg Dell has become! She is awesome and I have enjoyed reading from her perspective. She has some really fantastic lines like 'Son of a motherless goat' (Chapter 2). However, I struggle with how she becomes so docile with Isaac. This is the guy who LEFT her. Now, this may be because I don't feel like we have the whole picture of what happened between them when he left. And...hopefully that comes out in subsequent books but I find it SO frustrating that she doesn't have more of a backbone with him. And he doesn't apologize for leaving but rather they both keep saying they knew it was going to happen as if that explains it all :( . With that being said Chapter 14 had a really great line about love:
"Love is a choice, but it’s a decision most of us make with our eyes closed or else we might never act on the emotion at all."
The story line here was cool. I enjoy a great mystery as much as the next person and it was awesome to follow along with Dell and her handy helpers. I was glad to see Theirry show back up since she got me hooked originally (even if I was a little angry with how the ending worked out). Hailey Edwards really knows how to suck you in and I definitely didn't want to put this book down. When Dell found out that the orphan children where a result of the wargs actions-I felt her pain and disappointment within me as I was reading the story. Such heavy sadness and tragedy. I also hated the Conclave even more in that moment-not that they've done a stellar job in redemption or showing they care for anyone but themselves anyway.
Enzo is totally the underdog in this story and it really seems like he's got no chance at catching Dell's attention. He, however, has some pretty rockin' abilities. I wish I understood more of his history with Dell and the experiments the Enzo brothers have done on the wargs. I hope that unravels more in future books.
I loved the characters in this book. I chucked at Abrams addiction to auction websites and I totally LOVE Zed. I am not quite sure what stuck with him for me but he is a complicated fella. He and Dell have an amazing BFF connection and he's the best Gamma for the pack.
I was surprised with the ending. Totally didn't see it coming. I really enjoyed this last part to the book:
'"And if I refuse?”
Magic-fueled wind swirled around her, whipping black hairs in her face. The runes on her arms shimmered and pulsed. I tasted copper and my own death in the back of my throat.
"Trust me.” The dark light throbbed from her runes to match the cadence of her speech. "You don’t want to do that.”
I was afraid she’d say that.'
Dell is such a likable character that it’s very easy to get in her point of view. The story itself continues on with what Black Dog starts. I can’t wait to read more!!
