Ann Gimpel out did herself on this series! Dark Promise was a brilliant ending to a progressively better trilogy the Soul Storm series. This series could be read over and over while discovering something new each time. Magic is in abundance. Lara finally embraces her magic, which continues to grow in response to the various stresses she is put under. Both Lara and Trevor must re-evaluate their relationship and determine their own level of devotion. Choices are made. Consequences happen. Magic has a cost and that debt must be paid. Heartbreak and joy take turns, but the scale is not necessarily even. Ann Gimpel is a truly gifted writer and a must read for apocalyptical, urban fantasy, paranormal and romance!

TESTED. Dark Promise is the third and final book in the Soul Storm series. The book should not be read as a standalone as it starts right where Book Two ended. There is violence. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a great job of explaining t has happened in the world and what is happening with the main characters. The storyline will keep you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. It definitely kept me riveted and reading. I enjoyed this series!

This last book in the Soul Storm series is full of strong magic, both good and evil. We have Lara, who is still learning how to use her magic and her husband Trevor and their newborn Elizabeth, all caught in the Demons evil while trying to survive in what they thought was a safe haven. Their magical friends do all they can to help, but as evil confronts them in unknown ways, they are unable to help when it's needed most. Through being captured and escaping, both are hurt both physically ad mentally and as this happens to them separately they are terrified of what will happen to the other. Their love is strong and Trevor proves this by doing what is forbidden to humans, in order to save his beloved Tara and daughter. Because of his actions, there are tragic consequences. Good cannot always conquer evil and this is shown here, and in the end all we can do is hope that the Gods will show us to how to overcome and love again. I highly recommend this book and the entire series, which shows us when we have to be strong for those we love, we will do all we can to prevail.

Received this book free for an honest review. Must. Read. Series. OMG! I can't stop crying. Heartbreaking doesn't seem enough. Soul-breaking might be more apt to describe what I'm feeling now. Wow! This journey has put me threw the wringer and then some. Oh my. So much carnage, emotional turmoil, destruction and love. Get this series. Don't wait, don't walk... Run to your nearest bookstore or just a few clicks of your mouse to get this amazing series.

4.5 stars! Stunning conclusion to the Soul Storm trilogy. Fans of the series need to be ready for some surprising developments with this last installment of the series. Each book got progressively better as the story developed. I laughed and cried and bemoaned the characters' choices and decisions which tells me how into the series and characters I was. I lost myself in the overall story and now feel a little bereft that it is over. This trilogy has stayed in my mind since I finished it a couple weeks ago. Ah… The things we'll do for love… The human main characters sometimes do TSTL things even though they are not stupid people. You just want to shake some sense into them, but they never learn when one of the others is involved. They cease to think and just act. But don’t we all sometimes? This is one of the things that helps to make the characters so believable. This trilogy reminds me Ann Gimpel always twists the mythos and genres in interesting and unusual ways. She isn't afraid to let the main characters get physically hurt with injuries that don't heal with supernatural speed and occasionally not at all, and she isn't afraid to let the story get dark. Gimpel is on my “must read” list. If you like paranormal romance, fantasy, and/or urban fantasy and don’t want the same old shifters, Fae, gods and goddesses, you should be reading Ann Gimpel.

Stormed my Soul!!! WHOA!  What a fantastic book and ending to a terrific series!!!  Well, as long as you keep in mind the type of series it is!  *insert sly smile here*  I found the story very well written and completely engrossing.  And no matter how hard I tried I STILL could not figure out what was going to happen next!!  I think out of all of my “predictions” throughout this entire series, I was only correct on 2 or 3!  But to me, that says A LOT!  It means that the story is very unique, follows its own path and makes you think outside of the box or all of the “rules” & things you thought you knew about magic and magical beings.  The fact that the Sidhe and the Gods/Goddesses could not….well I am not going to say anymore because I think you have to read it for yourself.  I don’t like to give spoilers in my reviews, in fact I try REALLY hard to avoid spilling any part of the story aside from what is in the blurbs.  I prefer not to know too much about a book before I read it and therefore respect that other readers would feel the same way.  I loved the way that everything built up into more than one climatic ending, which in itself is unique!  Usually everything leads to the BIG ENDING or the HEA, but if you have ever read any of Ann’s books, you will know that she likes to take her readers on a roller coaster of a ride with multiple arcs & “endings”, and she has yet to disappoint me!  This book shifted to be more about what is going on in the world and the magic side of things, as oppose to the psych/psyche side that the first book tended to lean more towards.  This does not take anything away from the over-all story in fact it enhances and expands it!  I thought it was pure genius in how Ann tells us…well EVERYTHING!!!  You get the info you need when you need it, but at the same time you are not inundated with unnecessary info or lost because you don’t have enough & can’t figure out what is going on.  I have a feeling that these books are those rare ones that you can read multiple times and STILL discover new things, understand something else, realize a situation all while still enjoying them as a whole!  Of course, I can easily say that about any of Ann’s books!  Ann Gimpel is a very gifted author that can tell so many different types of stories in so many different genres, in fact in most cases you cannot even classify her books in just one genre!  She can & does, successfully blend paranormal, urban fantasy, romance and many other “types” together into one beautiful book and/or series and have you love each & every single one of them!!
