"What does it mean to be a human?So a couple of months ago I read Oath of Servitude by this same author and I fell in love! I adored that book and I felt the same about this one.
Lily Larkin is about to find out when on what should have been a day of great happiness, she is diagnosed with a rare and unbelievable disease. She is shrinking, possibly without limit.
As her life starts to spin out of control and the world starts to grow around her at an uncontrollable rate she is forced to confront her greatest fear - losing the man whom she loved from the moment she saw him. Can they stay together even though she feels her humanity slipping away? Can she trust him with her secret and, as her disease progresses, her safety and even her life? Can she trust herself?
A bittersweet story of love and loss, The Promise is a YA Paranormal Fantasy that will have you questioning the meaning of your own humanity and the weighing of trust against love.
What will Lily choose?
What would you choose?"
This story is very unique. It has a topic that no one would expect and right when you read the first page it's like a punch to the gut. From then on you are glued to the world of these two characters and barely anything can get you out of it -expect my mother. My mother will get anyone out of anything...I really loved this book, and I choked up a couple of times.
Lily Larkin was such a brave character in my mind. I really just wanted to just hug the crap out of her. She's one of those characters that intimidate you at first and then your all like "Lily I love you for being so strong! You're an inspiration to me!" She really does in my mind.
Erik Larkin is probably the perfect man. I really love his strength in this book. This book and his character really prove how strong true love can be. I kind of want to hug the crap out of him...and kiss the crap out of him..What? The man is incredibly hot.
The ending of this book is very bittersweet, especially the epilogue. It moves you in a way that you didn't know was possible. I have to say that the ending has to be my favorite part and I'm interested in seeing how the lives of Erik and Lily play out in the future. *cough* Novella please! *cough*
I highly recommend you pick up this book, read it, and then harass others to pick up, read it, and harass others. It's a never ending cycle!
