Jay Marinitch is more than just a pretty face. He’s a witch and vampire hunter, born into a world behind the façade of mundane, human life; a world with witches, telepaths, vampires and yes, shapeshifters. Jay is the bloodhound for Single Earth, hunting vampires that step out of line in order to keep the peace among all species. He has always taken life head on, a trait which has often gotten him into danger. The night he went to a party for vampires was no different. It would also be the night that would change his life forever. From meeting a psychotic vampire to running into an unconscious shapeshifter, Jay found himself in the path of malevolent forces about to be unleashed. In a chaotic mix of unusual alliances, formidable magic and passionate desires, Jay must figure out what is really going on before mayhem erupts in his beloved world.
Promises to Keep is an action packed book, full of intrigue and adventure. If the fanciful world Amelia Atwater-Rhodes created does not draw you in, then the compelling hero Jay certainly will. This book was a quick read, never ceasing to bore me. I would caution that this book is part of a series and there are certain terms and names that may be confusing, but the author explains them with enough depth while not taking too much away from the actual story. I would suggest this novel to anyone who is looking for an easy, summer read. Overall I would say Promises to Keep is a book worth keeping.
