****

When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can't be real, she decides it's time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family's secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her fa├žade of normalcy...until she discovers he's not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.

Their union brings hope and promise to her family's secret society, the Angels' army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy - Satan's minions and Tristan's creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.

Editorial Reviews

James Cox
Normalcy is an illusion hard to maintain. "Promise" tells the story of Alexis Ames and her family secrets. When romance enters her life, she and Tristan Knight soon realize that normalcy isn't required for love, and a union of love can withstand the onslaught of both the Heavens and Hells. "Promise" is an exciting and fascinating fantasy of demons and angels, highly recommended.

    Amazing

    This book was amazing, it was actually better than I expected :)

    Alexis is an unusual girl, on one hand her and her mum are always moving around, and her mum doesn't look old enough to be it, she's a writer and a bit of an outsider, so when they move to Florida so that she can start college, Alexis just wants to be normal for once.

    I can totally relate to Alexis as when I was at school I was a bit like her (except the moving around part, I only moved once)

    And then Tristan walks into her life (and mine) first as a friend who might be a little stalkerishy at first, but turns out to be loyal, protective and sweet and totally gorgeous.

    I loved how it wasn't instant love, yes there was attraction, but it wasn't I love you even if I've only known you for like 2 seconds. And even when they admitted the love they still had tons of issues.

    But that's not all, as well as having their own issues they have family secrets, add to that, the fact that Alexis isn't told any of these secrets, well trouble is bound to happen.

    The secondary characters such as Sophia and Owen are well written and interesting, especially Owen, he was so sweet I wanted to hug and squeeze him.

    The whole plot and writing was really good and kept you on the edge, and the cliffhanger!!! I can't wait to read the second and third book.

    Love.

    I was told to check out this book from my sister-in-law and I am glad I did. It is like a "mature" Twilight but the main characters are not vampires. Could not put it down. From the very first paragraph I fell in love with Kristie Cook's writing style.

    A Must Read!!!

    Kristie Cook has blown her audience away with Promise, the first book of the Soul Savers series. Tristan and Alexis are a match made in heaven and hell. Unfortunately, their union does not make everyone happy. Hell will break loose to try and split up the couple, but they have Heaven on their side, and must continue the family. Alexis and Tristan fight to stay together, and to keep the promises to themselves, each other, and their families. The end will keep you longing for Purpose, due out in Fall 2010.

    If you are a fan of Twilight, you will not be disappointed with this book, and may prefer it since there are more adult scenes. Kristie has reinvigorated my passion for reading with this amazing book and I know you will enjoy it!!!

    Absolutely breath taking!!!!!

    I couldn't get enough of this book. It continued to surprise me with it's unique story line and characters. There was never a boring moment for me and the author did a great job of building the story up to the climax. I have high expectations of the next two novels and any other books the author writes. This book is truly a treat!!!!!

    Loved it!

    Romantic and sweet with just the right amount of action and mystery. It had a great storyline as well. The book stayed interesting throughoutbut. Love the characters, you really feel like you live in their world. I would not recommend this book to a younger audience though, there is some strong language and a sex scene that was pretty explicit for young readers in my opinion, but it was definately a great read!

    Ehh..

    All of the top reviews are really misleading. I expected this book to be so full of action and story, but it was one big love drama that went around and around again for 700+ pages. It was a good tale if you're a sucker for sappy romances, and i have to admit that this is a really talented author, but i feel like she wasted too much of her talent on the love aspect. I was just bored and annoyed by the end, which is a pitey, for i feel like it could've been a much better story.

    more from this reviewer

    Great start to a new series !!! ;)

    My first ever book I’ve read of Kristie Cooks and I will certainly be adding her to my list of authors to follow ;)

    Promise is not at all what I first anticipated in reading the blurb it was so much more. Intriguing, captivating and catapulting me on a whirlwind of twists and turns till the very end. This book had me intrigued and definitely keen to keep on reading, I read this in one sitting... I was swept along with the storyline, enjoying the flow and the way in which the direction took me.

    The plot had me drawn in, I found this to be a fluent flowing storyline, with characters that I’m sure you will swoon over, fall in love with and also shed a tear for. Characters that I’m sure you will also enjoy and find intriguing.

    A love that will not only have you sheepishly grinning, but also have you heart a- fluttering. Emotions and descriptions are well put forth, creating that world that Kristi has put forth, and the character traits to go with.

    Kristi has created a world where Good vs. Evil = Heaven Vs Hell - Angels, Demons, protectors and so much more, a human world filled with paranormals and a storyline which is unique of its own.

    Tristan is every girls dream boat, hot - gorgeous, charming, romantic and off course protective. I enjoyed his character, fighting the demon within to be with and find love, his true love - soul mate. Tristan and Alexis love was magnetic, electrifying - it gave tingles just reading it... It was so romantic and made you smile at moments, and giggle at others, and also heart warming moments where you heart sunk. I’m such a romantic at heart and enjoyed every moment... The love was not instant, it was slow and gradual and not your fall in love at first site, I enjoyed this concept. Alexis is insecure, very emotional , but has her goals which she focused on and in time her maturity and thoughts changed, I enjoyed seeing her change along the way.

    Tristan and Alexis is a match made in Heaven n Hell, will hell win and reclaim his soul?

    Demons hunt the souls and the Angels defend them..... A family line continues on to fight good over evil, but is the line stopping at Alexis? We are introduced to two world in this story, Good and Evil and the reasons behind the fued... Im hoping to see a little more into these worlds in book two.

    The ending to Promise will have you teary eyed and anticipating book two - Definably an unpredictable ending for sure...

    If you after a read filled with lust, passion, romance, suspense, action, then this paranormal series is for you...

    Paranormal, 720 pages. Surprized me.

    This book is the first in a series of three. This is free, the other two are $4.35 each. But you can buy them in a set and get all three plus a short, for about $6.00, which is a pretty nice savings. This book is over 720 pages, the other two are about 280 pages each. I usually do not like paranormal books, so I was surprized these were pretty good. They were pretty well edited, which is important to me. They have a tendency to have a lot of unneeded repeatation, which makes the stories longer then they need to be. There is also an issue of nothing happening for hundreds of pages, except a lot of what if, I want to know, please tell me and what is going on? conversations, which gets old fast. The sex is rough but not very detailed, there is violence, some blood and guts and lots of magic. If you like paranormal books, then you will love this series. I don't care for them, but I liked these. For readers 16 and up, more for females.

    AMAZING BOOK

    This book is absolutely amazing! Although it seemed a little like Twilight, its many plot twists, believable characters and genuine love sucked me in! I love how the author mixed so many genres into one amazing book. I cannot wait to read the next one, and hope that everything turns out perfect in the end, because this book definitely ended in a vary tearful cliffhanger!

    Good

    I was a tad disappointed in this book, some of it seemed really childish and generic feeling at times. I did like the concept of the story and want to read the rest of the series.
