Review: The Problem with Promises (Mystwalker #3) by Leigh Evans


Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore and my gorgeous mate, tries to protect me, Hedi Peacock, half-Fae, half-were, from all the trouble I get into. The thing is, my past is pretty messy and bad guys keep knocking down my door. Witches, thug bikers, the North American Council of Weres, dark magic Fae, and even an evil wizard are all after me. The Old Mage is the only one I really care about: He has my dear twin brother captive on the other side of the Gates of Merenwyn—not cool. So my alpha love is helping me to keep my promise to free my brother…


Unfortunately, everyone who helps me ends up in a heap of trouble too—including my Trowbridge. Now, I admit I’ve had my moments as a shivering coward, hoping he will come to my brave rescue. The whole Prince Charming thing is hard to shake. But these bad guys after me mean business and those damsel in distress days are over. You know that “last straw” metaphor? That was two straws ago. It’s now or never. Again…

Poor Heidi. She keeps finding trouble or trouble keeps finding her. This girl has issues especially with her dysfunctional threesome living inside her body. There is herself, her fae self, and her wolf self. They all are cowards but when the moment strikes them they all fight for dominance. This story we actually got to see them all three show a little more backbone than has been the norm. Normally I would not like a main character like our Heidi but there is just something about her. She always manages to pull it together even though she does tend to seem a little on the dependent, scared side most times.

I enjoyed the third installment of the Mystwalker series. I can’t wait to see where this continues to take us. There seemed to be a lot more plot twists than I thought the author would have been able to fit. This was a good thing. The story kept me on my toes throughout and I wanted to continue reading after the story was done. Although I admit I just kept wanting the story to hurry up and save Lexi. I had high hopes he would play a bigger part in this story. The author introduced Anu’s gift to the reader also. It manifested at just the right time to.

All in all this series and story is still keeping me interested and wanting to read more. It is action-packed and fast paced but also a lot happens in a day of Heidi’s life. The title lives up to its name with everyone wanting a promise from the fae. I will definitely continue to read this series to see what is in store next for Heidi and Trowbridge.
