Review by: H.G. Estok on Aug. 17, 2013 :
This installment of the Otrim Saga introduces us to Paeter's backstory and shows us how he came to ride with Otrim and Terell (who also need their own origin episodes at some point). I mentioned in another review that there's a disconnect between Otrim the Barbarian and Otrim the Bible-thumper, but this episode brings that conflict front and cent as the characters discuss being both peace-crafters and warriors. I would like to see Otrim and Paeter struggle more with their bloodletting in future episodes; separating a man's head from his shoulders should not come easily to them, considering their faith/upbringing. "Promise" is another well-written chapter in a series I'm enjoying, and I can't wait to read what happens next to these engaging characters.
