~Book Review and Giveaway: Dark Promise~

Dark Promise
Julia Crane & Talia Jager

Rylie has it all - great friends, dream boy, loving family. But on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, her perfect little world shatters. A stranger claiming to be her real mother appears with a secret: Rylie is a faery whose powers will be unleashed on her birthday. Captured and forced into a new life, Rylie struggles to keep everything she loves and discovers a terrifying truth: some promises cannot be broken.


Rylie is a lucky girl.  She has wonderful, loving parents.  Great friends and the most wonderful boyfriend that any girl could ask for.  As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Rylie starts feeling strange, as if she is somehow changing.  The night before her birthday, a strange lady comes to visit them and tells an incredible tale of how she is Rylie's birth mother.  Rylie is going to turn into a faery on her sixteenth birthday and obtain incredible powers.  Azure must keep Rylie safe because some faeries are wanting to capture her and use her powers for evil.  Kidnapped and taken away to the dark faerie land, Rylie will fight with everything she has to return to her family or die trying.  Things are not all bad, though, in this magical land.  How will she return to the only family that she has ever know?  

I really enjoyed reading this book.  Quiet different than what I am used to reading.  I am not a huge fan of faery but this book was so good.  A wonderful storyline full of surprises and excitement.  Rylie is perfect as the main character.  She is level headed, brave and quick thinking.   The ending is excellent.   I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.  I  can't wait to  learn more about the characters.  This series has so much potential.  I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.
