Review: Growing up in this generation most young adults will picture a glittering, supernatural, human fighting against other strange, fictional characters when they hear a book about vampires. After reading Promises to Keep by Amelia Atwater- Rhodes, it will change that perspective on vampires completely.

It all begins with a crashed party and an epic clash of events. At the center of all this chaos is Jay, a young witch and vampire hunter. Somehow he finds himself in a situation no one has ever expected. He finds himself at the vampire empress Kendra's fabled Heathen Holiday bash where he is dragged into a trap. He has always raced his way though these dangerous conditions, but this time he won't be able to get out of it so easily. Throughout this nerve-wracking evening he meets an insane vampire and another mysteriously supernatural person in the middle of the forest floor. In this thrilling story, Jay Marinitch may be the only hope to stop the rise of a vampire-controlled slave empire called Midnight.

Personally, I think that this book is decent. It definitely will catch any reader's eye. It has a very unique and interesting plot. I recommend Promises to Keep to readers age 12 and older because there is some language in the story that would not be recommended to be read by younger readers. A weakness of this book is that it is a bit vague in the beginning. But in spite of that, I gradually became more interested. However, I know that other readers will be captivated by this unique story from the very beginning.

  1. You give a good shot at that review, it is giving me a feel for the book. I might try it out later. You have captured my attention and do a good job of explaining and describing the story without many spoilers.
