My review of Promise Me by Tara Fox Hall


When young widow Sarelle McGarran finds the vampire Danial Racklan unconscious and hurt in her woods, intuitive concern quickly becomes passionate love. Together Danial and Sar work to overcome their own past heartbreaks, their vastly different lifestyles, and Danial’s relentless enemies. Yet Danial needs more; an Oath of forever. But can Sar give Danial his greatest desire?

My Review

Sarelle (Sar) finds Daniel, a vampire, unconscious on her property and takes him into her house and saves Daniel from an attempt on his life by an unknown assailant. Despite Daniel’s controlling nature and unascertained past, Sar falls in love with him and all the entanglement that comes with being with a vampire. There are some side characters that are shape-shifters that are in play in this book. There is also a different type of character in the story that I thought was very creative on the part of the author.

Sar is a beautiful person, inside and out, with such a deep compassion towards all living things. One thing that really disappointed me is when the book starts off, Sar is a very strong independent woman who speaks her mind. Sar was always saying, “if you have something to say, say it!”, and towards the end of the book, she loses some of that.Yes, I understand that we all want to be loved and provided for but at what cost?


I am a big fan of True Blood, the Twilight Books, and I have read some other vampire books that I absolutely loved. But this one just felt like it was dragging on and was difficult to hold my attention.

This is the first book out of ten in the series, but after reading about the next books in the series, I may just have to read on as it sounds like the other books in the series are better. You can get Promise Me at Amazon: Promise Me

Right now without reading the other books in the series, I would give it 2.5 out of 4 fangs.
