Still reeling from
the revelations of her secret birthright and fated betrothals, Cheyenne's
thoughts tumble over her whirlwind past year since the death of her parents.
Vowing to close herself off to spare her heart more pain, she keeps her
distance and seeks her own path. But Colt, Daniel and Callon are constantly at
her side, not giving her room to breathe or let her come to terms with her
destiny. At the same time, her transformation into a Timeless begins; a process
that could very well kill her. As if that wasn't enough, her enemies are still
out for her blood, and no-where is safe. Though new allies appear to protect
her from the unseen dangers, which ones are friend and which are foe?
And can Cheyenne stand
the ultimate pain of all . . .

Hello everyone I'm here to give my review of Promises book 2 in the Timeless series, I wanna start with reminding everyone of the thrilling ride Lisa took us on in Cheyenne book 1. We were drawn into a new and fresh story, a fresh idea that was written in depth and penetrating to the core. I grew to love all the characters and was caught breathless and gasping when the twists and turns of the story happened keeping me on edge for what was coming next.
I fell in love with the Timeless Series and book 2 and taken even further into the lives of Cheyenne, Callon, Colt, and Daniel. Does Lisa ever run out of brilliant ideas? No is the answer to that as this book proves it time and time again. Lisa writes these books like she's sitting with me and telling me a story. No detail is left unseen, I can see the scenes, the fighting, and the wind through the trees as I read. But more than that Lisa takes her writing to a new level and she evokes emotions that only a truly brilliant author can pull from a reader. I told Lisa I haven't had my emotions stirred this deeply since reading The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa and I mean that. I love to read and when I can open the first chapter in a book and feel the despair and anguish of the characters who are torn between life altering decisions, I know it's going to be an amazing story.
Now down to the story and characters, first off Promises picks up right where Cheyenne left off, your mind is still reeling from the powerful first story and this one is going to send you over the edge. Cheyenne only ever wants to be free and make her own decisions but what she doesn't see in the end will make her life harder than ever. She comes to some heartfelt realizations and admits her true feelings only to start a chain reaction of events of epic proportions for her trio of guardians.
Cheyenne's life starts spinning out of control when her constant need to be free is over powering and she manages a daring escape. She encounters new characters who will not only thicken the plot but twist it so tightly you could wring the turmoil and animosity from it like water.
Now on to the Guardians, and my oh my what a trio they are. Strong, handsome, brave, caring, and most of all filled with love for one girl who can change their world. Callon, ever vigilant only wants what's best for Cheyenne even if he has to suffer to give it to her or hurt her to keep her safe. Colt, he is the light for Cheyenne she can't function without his loving presence and he holds her so dear to his heart that all rationality goes up in smoke where she is concerned. Last but not least is Daniel, he is fun and loves Cheyenne like the sister he didn't have. He helps her when her new life starts forming and she needs to have a trusted companion and partner in crime. The characters in this series are brilliantly written and would be stunning placed into a movie. The world has no choice but to fall in love with the Timeless Series.
Now for the emotions, I laughed and I held my breath but most of all I was moved deep in my heart by compassion, longing, need, want, and love. When one is destined to be yours but doesn't love you what can you do? When you love the one who is forbidden what will happen? When love is too much to bear where can you go? All these questions and so many more are lying in wait in Promises. I can't begin to express the emotion I felt crying my eyes out for all the characters in this book. It was an emotional roller coaster that I am glad I rode and can't wait to ride again.
Lisa is an author that come along few and far between, she breaths into her stories her own passions and desires. She takes her readers on a fierce journey of excitement and adventure that will leave you gasping and begging for more. Lisa does more than tell a story, she shares a part of her with you and keeps you with her for the entire adventure. 5 out of 5 blistering bright stars for Promises book 2 in The Timeless Series. I am holding my breath for more.
