Book Title: Elijah's Vow
Series: The Order of the Mist
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Language: British English
Jasmine Tate, an Editor from New York, relaxes on her first vacation in years until a tall, dark, handsome stranger throws her into a world of power and tantalizing passion. She realizes that humans are not the only race in existence. Her life shatters around her as their worlds collide and everything she’s ever believed in is destroyed as her true identity is laid out before her.
Elijah, The Order’s leader, has never known true love. Tormented by his past, he has lived only to protect his race, but when he meets Jasmine his heart is captivated by her beauty and he becomes obsessed with his possession and desire for her.
As a war begins between The Order and the Phoenix League, he must face an enemy that is intent on destroying everything that matters to him, but can he protect the one thing that has become his destiny?
I enjoyed the uniqueness of the world that Abbie created in this book. I would have loved an intro or appendix that explained more about The Mist, The Order, and the Phoenix League. I only had two issues with this book: 1. Without the background and history I was a bit lost for the first couple of chapters until the story took us through the facts we needed to learn. 2. The book is written in British English and some of the terminology was uniquely British and I didn't know what the author was talking about until later in the book.
That being said, I feel that this is a strong debut novel for a new author and I can only see Abbie growing stronger as she creates each consecutive book in this series. I know I'm looking forward to book two, which will be about Jonah.
