The Problem with Promises continues from where the last book ended. Hedi is on a deadline. Events from book 2 give Hedi only a few days, which made me think this would be a fast-paced book, but it wasn't. While I find Hedi a sympathetic heroine, she spends so much time thinking about hypothetical situations and outcomes. She is sweet and strong. The darkness of her journey hasn't broken her. It's made her a cost.

Promises focuses too much on Hedi. She over-analyzes every little thi

This third installment in Evans Mystwalker really takes the series to a whole new level. The first two, while good and interesting, were a little bogged down with world building and character development. So jumping into Promises I was excited to see where the story went. And I certainly wasn't let down.

We pick up just a few hours after the end of the last book. Shit had just hit, and kept hitting, the fan and Hedi and Trowbridge certainly have some issues to work through. I was really hoping,

As with most urban fantasy series, the Mystwalker series books should be read from the beginning and in order, or the reader will miss out on substantial world development and character growth. In fact, I don’t know that I would have enjoyed The Problem with Promises nearly as much if I hadn’t spent my time in the trenches with Hedi and Robson. So with that, I highly recommend that any r

This is THE book!

It's been quite a rocky road for Hedi and Trowbridge. From the moment their paths recrossed in book 1 (The Trouble With Fate), it's been a steady stream of highs, lows, close calls and near-death experiences - and that was just the beginning! In The Problem With Promises, the series reaches new and crazy heights. It isn't just another book, it is THE book - the one we have all been waiting for.

This is the one, guys! This is the book where all those readers who, like me, knew that Hedi had it in her to be BAD. ASS. can join me in an almighty righteous fist pump of celebration because Hedi is bringing it in THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES! Do not get in her way!

We pick up immediately after the events at the end of the last book, dealing not only with the aftermath of Lexi’s forced return to Mernwyn, and Hedi’s subsequent guilt, but also the more immediate danger of NAW’s r

I LOVE the first two Mystwalker books, and this one is even hotter (in all ways! *g*). Hedi, Trowbridge, and their friends have to fight hard for themselves and what they want, and they do! And boy does it make for a heart-pounding, exciting tale. But hey, don't take my word for it. If you haven't started this series, get to it! And if you have then you're gonna want to read this next fab instalment! :-)

Hedi wants to save her twin brother from a mage. He’s in Merenwyn (Fae land) and Hedi can’t get through a gate. On top of that the council is after her, her mate, and her friends. Before she has time to think about anything she is thrust through one event after another. She is chased by bikers, other types of shifters. She even runs into a betrayal or two.

Things don’t let up for Hedi in book three. At the start of the story Hedi let’s readers know that her next objective is to get to Merenwyn wi

My English review

This is a series that I like but it’s true that I always struggle to get into it… as for each novel elsewhere. I think we always need to persevere to be able to appreciate the rest of the book, because it is still worth a shot. I was also quite surprised to find the story right after the end of the second novel, which does not happen often.

Trowbridge is back but changed even if Hedi is now happy to have him with her, there is still so much to do. Yes because

If you’ve been following my reviews for this series, Mystwalker, you know that I enjoy it quite a bit. Paranormal and urban fantasy are definitely among my favorite genres, and Leigh Evans has created a fantastical world with a pretty kick-ass heroine coming into her own, a sexy alpha, and an excellent supporting cast.

All that said, I have to admit that I had a hard time getting into The Problem with Promises. I don’t know if I was just not i

At the conclusion of the previous book, Evan’s lead character, Hedi Peacock-Stronghold, has drugged her brother, faked his execution for the pack, and sent him back to the fae land of Merenwyn. The third installment picks up shortly after sending her brother back. She and her mate, Pack Alpha, Robson “Bridge” Throwbridge are going after him to try and save both the worlds from the Dark Mage. Heidi seems to always find trouble at every intersection in this newest installment of the Mystwalker Ser ...more

At the end of Mystwalker's first and second installments, I was cautiously optimistic about continuing. Because while entertaining, I found major flaws in each. Finally, The Problem with Promises builds upon everything that came before without letting me down. The main cause for celebration is Hedi's comeback!

My dark hero, forever flawed, has been resurrected and kicking ass. Not only does Heidi's spark return, she progresses wonderfully throughout. There's no more losing herself in Trowbridge.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES really starts to open up the Mystwalker world. We find out more about the fae, we meet some witches and other shifters, and Hedi and Trowbridge have to deal with some serious were politics. An action packed third installment in the series, THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES never seems to let up, constantly hitting the reader with revelations, fights or dramatic decisions. You definitely don’t have to worry about being bored with this

Poor Heidi. She keeps finding trouble or trouble keeps finding her. This girl has issues especially with her dysfunctional threesome living inside her body. There is herself, her fae self, and her wolf self. They all are cowards but when the moment strikes them they all fight for dominance. This story we actually got to see them all three show a little more backbone than has been the norm. Normally I would not like a main character like our Heidi but there is just something about her. She always ...more

For those of you who don't know, Heidi is half Fae & half wolf. Her 'One True Thing' mate is Robson (Bridge) Trowbridge, Alpha of the Creemore pack.

In the previous 2 books, much world-building has been had, and much action has happened in both Thrall, the Fae world of nightmares, and Canada, where the Creemore pack resides. This one starts just hours after the previous book ended, when Bridge comes back from Merenwyn (Fae).

This book continues the theme that Heidi & Bridge spend most of t

I read this book right after the most recent Patricia Briggs- Mercy Thomas book, and right before an Illona Andrews- Kate Daniels. This most definitely impacted my opinion of this book. I was SOOOO frustrated and annoyed with the main character........see!? I can't even remember her name, that's how much I've blocked this book from my memnory.
Whatever her name is, she annoyed the crap out of me. I REALLY liked the first book in this series, and was eager to see how the story line progressed. Bu

Wow... just when you think Leigh Evans is going to wrap up the series in a nice little bow, she takes your brain and messes with it.

By the 3rd book of any series, you are invested completely in the characters, their lives and whether they live or die. The Problem with Promises twists the knife just that much deeper and makes you want to cry along with them.

Leigh stays consistent with her witty humour, her irony, and her eloquent attention to detail. Every paragraph is worth reading, and re-re

I struggled with this honest to God I did. Basically I struggled with the plot because it felt more like a filler then anything else while The Hedi narrative kept becoming more self absorb as the books go by. Because of how self absorb the narrative is its very diffuclt to get what's really going on and Hedi herself is always so me, myself and I. Would like more Trowbridge and less Hedi please. Hahahahha.

So yeah what started off as a very promising PUR series has now kinda fizzled out so I will

Hedi does indeed slowly evolve into a total bad-ass in this book, but personally I was more excited about seeing more of Cordelia. It's so rare to have a great series that has a transgender character, let alone a character as awesome as Cordelia. Her "trans-ness" isn't dwelled upon, but nor is it hidden or used as a "big reveal". Without venturing into spoiler territory, Cordelia saves people while helping to seriously advance the plot. I couldn't be more excited.

The "Mystwalker Series" is a excellent series to read. Its a sexy love story. Throw in werewolves and fae and it becomes even better. Its steamy and sex. Add some violence to all that, and its something you can't put down. Hedi says Robson is "My One True Thing." And he says Hedi is his "Tink."
Read the series. I dare you. I guaranty you that you won't be able to put them down to the end.

Oh my God is Hedi annoying in this book?! She talks big but when it has to come to actions she fails miserably. And all that anxiety and chase and so many descriptions of different attacks - it was utter nonsense. Worse book of the series so far. Not enough plot, too much "Hedi is being attacked" shit

This book is my favorite book in the series so far!!! If you love paranormal then this series is a MUST read!! Hedi and Trowbridge are the perfect couple and along with all their friends you can help but love this series. The Problem With Promises is fast paced and highly addictive, I couldn’t put this book down!! Can’t wait for the next book in the Mystwalker Series!! <3
My favourite so far in this series but something about Hedi is bugging me which is stopping me from completely loving this series. I'll see how the next book goes before I make up my mind.

Leigh Evans's writing is engaging and I love it, but so far Hedi is underwhelming me.

Seriously how does this series not have more ratings, more fans and more EVERYTHING? Hedi's journey so far has been amazing as has her relationship with Trowbridge whom is my new book boyfriend ;)

I like the characters in this series and the premise, but the story is going nowhere fast. It's one tremendous crisis after another with glacially slow progress in the storyline. It's all rather tiresome.

The series gets better and better now after 48 hours Hedi is now taking charge of life and finding a way to clear her mate and her self from the NAW and reveal all the secrets that were kept hidden that can lead to many things to come.
CJ - It's only a Paper Moon

Meh. Not as good as the earlier ones and definitely a lot heavier on the heroine whomping.

Another great addition to the Mystwalker series. On to book 4!
