Gideon's Promise ~ Airicka Phoenix

Title: Gideon’s Promise
Author: Morgana Phoenix
Genre: NA Paranormal Expected Release Date: Feb. 23, 2015 Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

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.

Airicka Phoenix lives in a world where unicorns, fairies and mermaids run amok through her home on a daily basis. When she’s not chasing after pixies and rounding up imps, also known as her four children, she can be found conjuring up evil villains, bad-ass heroines and swoon-worthy heroes to play with. Airicka is singlehandedly responsible for her greatly anticipated collections, The Touch Saga, The Lost Girl Duology, The Regeneration Series, Games of Fire & Betraying Innocence. She also writes mature paranormal & contemporary romance under the dark guise of Morgana Phoenix. To date, she is responsible for The Sons of Judgment Saga, In The Dark Series, Forever His Baby & Bye-Bye Baby.

My Book Angel Review:
***ARC provided for honest review***

Gideon's Promise By Airicka Phoenix was well worth the wait. This book blew me away. I had a few all nighters clutching my Kindle, my eyes glued to the pages, forever saying "just one more chapter." However, this book is one you'll find yourself not being able to put down.

I adored Gideon in Octivian's Undoing. He was sarcastic, brash, and at times immature, but he kept me laughing. I thought Octavian was swoon worthy but I believe Gideon has taken his brother's place in that category.
The same characters are Back in this book. We do meet a new one, Imogene. She was told by her father to go to Final Judgment for help. She's around 18 years old and a veil creature. Imogene is a sweet, quiet, and kind soul. I can't go much further without spoilers.
We also learn more about the North(Final Judgment's quadrant), East, South, and West; how the treaty came into effect, and what each area is known for. For example, Casters, Harvesters, etc...There's a lot of background in Gideon's life told throughout the story which is very interesting. Reading about the first time Gideon see's and meets Valkyrie, realizing who she is, and the many lengths he'll go through to protect her.

Valkyrie is a true force to be reckoned with. She's a warrior, tough, and doesn't take any crap from anyone. The dialogue between her and Gideon is hilarious. Gideon will say and do anything do get under her skin. Yet, there's a soft side to him that we see in this book-a sweet, beautiful side, that is uncovered the more we get to know his character.
This book is packed with action, tons of twists and turns, and a lot of surprises. Ms. Phoenix didn't disappoint on the stem factor either!

I would definitely recommend Gideon's Promise to anyone who has read the 1st book. Airicka Phoenix did a phenomenal job writing this novel. I look forward to the 3rd book in the series, which is about Maxwell.
