REVIEW: Gideon's Promise by Airicka Phoenix

His love will become her curse.

For centuries, Gideon has kept his secret, knowing that it could mean the life of the woman whose very heartbeat was his reason for living. But when Veil Creatures are slaughtered in their homes by those sworn to protect them, it may be up to him to save those he loves from a fate worse than death. What he doesn’t expect is the betrayal and a choice that could leave his family devastated.

Valkyrie Devereaux believes only in the power of justice, loyalty and obeying the laws of her people. Love was something to be feared and she had been taught long ago that anything that could make you weak, needed to be eliminated. But when she is assigned to join the Casters of the north in hunting down the creatures killing the innocent, even she can’t help the twang of longing for something that goes against everything she was raised to believe was wrong.

Like fire and gasoline, passions collide. Heat erupts as they fight against their desires and their very nature. But a fire like theirs can never be smothered. It can never be stopped. It can only burn to unimaginable heights, but what happens when it careens out of control and destroys everything around them? And who is waiting for that exact moment to destroy the brothers?

She will become his death.

I think I am in love with this Author's style of writing. I absolutely loved these characters. We got to learn a lot about Gideon and Valkyrie in this story. They were phenomenal characters with deep dark secrets and wishes and I loved how the author broke down the book into two parts. Part 1 was all about Gideon's POV and part 2 was about Valkyrie's POV. The struggle for these two was real and it felt real the more I read the story. I felt so sad about the struggles the characters went through. The story-line was strong and extremely addicting. I was constantly wanting to know what would happen next and see when my questions throughout the story would be answered. This author has a knack for holding back just enough of the truth to keep you guess, letting your mind wonder into your imagination and then finding out you were wrong all along. I highly recommend this read!!
