Sacred Promises by Mindy Bigham and Jennifer Hines

Sacred Promises (Book #1)

I'd like to say thanks to the authors for giving me the opportunity to review this story.
I have much more to say about this book. All of them are good things. I will do a authors interview at a later date, but for now here is the review. I would recommend it to anyone who likes YA and paranormal/magic elements.

The review - I gave this book 5 stars

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for a honest review.*

Sacred promises follows 18 year old Abbey who was conditioned to one day rise to take her place as queen. It it when she is placed in a academy setting with her own people that she really begins to blossom, and with the appropriate amount of age appropriate struggles.

After I finished the book it kept popping up at random times and that’s because it ticked all of my like boxes. I loved everything from the story world that was created, Abbeys connection with Giga, combat training classes and of course MAGIC!!!!

Abbey is strong, level-headed, forgiving and brave. She often makes decisions with wisdom beyond her years which is refreshing. She has all of the qualities that will allow her to develop into an amazing queen. On the flip side she is still a teenager and her struggle between fitting-in and being queen was in perfect balance the entire time. There were many times she acted her own age and was swept up in teenaged drama, high school and boys.

For those who really enjoy romance there is plenty of that, including many unwanted roses. (you will see) :D

This book is YA, but will probably develop into a coming-of-age or in this case rise-to-throne type scenario. I LOVE THAT!!

I hope that there is a continuation to this series because there is no doubt that I will read the next book. Overall a fun story with one my favorite lead female characters to date.
