Review by: Dolores A McCabe on July 05, 2012 :
This is a paranormal tale of a girl's frightening and yet exicting visitation by Orin and Jett, two denizens of a world outside of reality. I liked it and as a YA novel I think it is fulfilling in plot, character and structure.

Death’s Promise
by Cheryl Twoddle

A complex mixture of romance, adventure and metaphysics, Death’s Promise is a romp through this dimention and others by Annabelle, her evil counterpart Jett, and Orin, her guide though the dream world.

Think of this as the poor man’s Nora Roberts creation. The pace is a little slow but the plot is good, as are the details of place. The author puts the reader right into the scene, as well as into Annabelle’s heart and soul. The dialogue could be better, weighing in at the Young Adult level, The ‘mystery,’ set up as Orin and Jett vie for Annabelle;s affection and her future, is not compelling on an adult level. There is too much narration and repetition, slowing the book’s flow.

To some extent, though there is a mix of genres, the book is formulaic. There is the obligatory fight scene at the end, with Orin, the good guy, wining, and love defeating hate.
On a scale of one to ten, I’d give this one a seven.
