My name is Gemma Lucas and my life’s a mess. Alex is gone, my dad’s trapped in his own mind, and my mom’s working for the dark side. Not to mention Nicholas refuses to quit haunting me.
The world has also entered apocalyptic mode. Everyday more vampires, witches, and fey run the streets. Innocent people are dying. The Mark of Malefiscus is showing up everywhere. And I’m the only one who can stop it.
The only problem is I have to die in order to do so. And I have to let Alex die. Something I’m not sure I can do.
The final story in this series is great and does not disappoint readers because Gemma and Alex finally reveal their feelings for one another.
The story was action packed from the start and I found it hard to put the book down because it has so may twists which kept me turning those pages.
While reading the book I was wondering why it was called The Promise until Jessica brought in the blood promise that Gemma and Alex had made in secret as kids, at first you don't realise how important that, that blood promise is going to be.
I loved how there was two different endings the vision and the actual ending. While reading the book and reading about the vision and how the world would end was heartbreaking knowing that the two characters you have loved threw the whole series are going to die and then reading about how they both make deals to save the another was great it shown how much they really cared for each other.
I think Jessica did an amazing job of tying up every last detail in the last book so you weren't left wanting a fifth book (although most Fallen Star readers would love this series to go on forever).
I can't wait to get started in the spin off series Fallen Souls, because I want to read more about Gemma and Alex.
