I was concerned I might not like this series as much as I did The Ghost Files, but I needn't have worried. The main character is much like Mattie from TGF - very hot tempered and self-aware so it was easy to go from TGF 3 to The Promise without having to start over with learning to like a new main character.
I liked this different approach to magic, it reminded me a little of the film 'The Craft' with the dangers of both black magic and those who twist magic to use it for bad reasons. She doesn't end up with the love interest I'd have hoped, but I'm used to Apryl Baker doing that now so the disappointment wasn't too deep.
A good, easy read that I'd recommend.

Cassie lives in a town steeped in witchcraft but to her its all nonsense. She doesn't believe in magic and ever since her sister made her promise to never go near the coven she hasn't. Now though with the arrival of a stranger she starts to question everything she believes. Was the accident her sister died in really an accident? Is magic real? Is Ethan who he seems to be?

I liked Cassie. She questions everything and even though everyone pushes her to join the coven, she sticks to her guns. She is smart, capable and strong. What I didn't like was how she turned, at times, into an idiot where Ethan is concerned. She really annoyed me with the way she "loved" him even though she couldn't trust him!! It felt at times that she was a totally different character.

As for Ethan, he came across as arrogant, controlling at times and odd. Even though he was described as a heartthrob, I had a hard time liking him.

I struggled with the first half of The Promise. It was slow going and I really really didn't like the insta love between Ethan and Cassie. I would of loved to see them get to know each other first instead of kissing after 2 meetings and then saying they loved each other after only knowing each other a week or so!!

Saying that though as the story progressed I did become hooked. I loved how Cassie takes so long to embrace the witchcraft, I also loved the mystery that surrounds the book. The author throws clues throughout the book but you are still left guessing. Its a good start to the series and Ill read book 2 to see what happens.

Another great book Apryl and again it had me hooked from the start. Looking forward to book 2 The Oath which I am just going to download to my Kindle right now. Have recommended your books to my daughter and my friends.

This book didn't get me like the other titles by the author but was still a good read. I would like to see something a little different from this author as the storylines tend to follow the same path.
