Dark Promise

Murder Most Foul

“Ahbi!” I was moving before I knew it, stumbling to fall on my abused knees at her side, where my grandmother laid facedown. I reached for her, desperate to help her without knowing what was wrong, pulling her toward me, feeling something hot and slick on my skin. I jerked away on impulse, stomach knotted at the scent of copper now very familiar to me.

Looked down.

Choked on a sob of disbelief.

My hands were covered in blood.

Syd is the prime suspect when her demon grandmother is murdered. But Ahbi Sanghamitra’s last act was to geas Syd with the task of finding the real killer—even if it means allying with the rebels who threaten to tear Demonicon apart.

Meet the Author

About me, huh? Well, my official bio reads like this: Patti Larsen is an award-winning middle grade and young adult author with a passion for the paranormal. But that sounds so freaking formal, doesn’t it? I’m a storyteller who hears teenager’s voices so loud I have to write them down. I love the idea of sports even though sports hate me. I’ve dabbled in everything from improv theater to film making and writing TV shows, singing in an all girl band to running my own hair salon.

But always, always, writing books calls me home.

I’ve had my sights set on world literary domination for a while now. Which means getting my books out there, to you, my darling readers. It’s the coolest thing ever, this job of mine, being able to tell stories I love, only to see them all shiny and happy in your hands… thank you for reading.

As for the rest of it, I’m short (permanent), slightly round (changeable) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can’t seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my very patient husband and four massive cats.

    With relatives in high places, Syd is liable to be the target of power hungry individuals like Ameline Benoit. Accused of her grandmother's murder and determined to save the endangered essence of Demonicon, our favorite girl embarks on another adventure of hunting down the real murderer, being caught up in dangerous transport chases, and dealing with powerful magic.

    For me, returning to the Hayle Coven novels is like coming home to well-loved family and friends. As usual, Dark Promise did not disappoint. Full of nail-biting suspense and thrilling action, this book kept me reading well past my alotted reading hours. Needless to say, I enjoyed every minute of it.

    Syd's character is growing and developing beautifully. Although the odd childish thought and impulse still makes its appearance from time to time, she is becoming mature and full of self-confidence. This self-assurance, I often thought while reading this book, is often the thing that pushes her to her limits and beyond to achieve the almost impossible. Syd's snarky attitude and amusing inner dialogue had me giggling away as usual.

    Dark Promise introduces a new, if slightly untrustworthy, demon character called Ramerancelot. I thought him to be a very realistically crafted character with a healthy balance of good and bad. Of course Syd's nemesis, Ameline, with her insatiable power hunger, adds a healthy touch of evil to the story.

    A book suitable for readers of all ages, Dark Promise is an absolute must read. However, it would be ideal if readers read the previous twelve books in the series before they read this one. Five stars and a standing ovation for a fantastic piece of writing by a brilliant author. (Ellen Fritz)
