Publisher's Summary

Four years ago, Caulborn agent Vincent Corinthos stopped a hellish ritual intended to transform Ulysses Pendleton into a creature of utter darkness. With Pendleton safely imprisoned in Ashgate Penitentiary, Vincent and the rest of the Caulborn figured the world was a little bit safer.
Until now. A catastrophic failure with the prison's security systems sends Vincent and the rest of the Caulborn into Ashgate to try and prevent the inmates from escaping. They secure all but one. Pendleton.
Now, Vincent's in a race against the clock to find Pendleton before he can finish the job he started four years ago, and smother Boston in shadows.

Not the best but enjoyable

First, read book 1. You will not get a summary of book 1, thank god. I do not like my listening time, or credit, taken up with a summary of the pervious book. Promise is not as good as book 1. It is good enough that if you have a junky jones for the characters in the Caulborn series you will find it entertaining. Vincent Corinthos a demi-god who works to keep us mere mortals safe from the assorted characters in the paranormal world.

This books pick up from Vincent’s dilemma to keep his partner, Meg safe. In the heat of a battle, Vincent made a slip of the tongue and he said that he would keep Meg safe. That entails for him to keep her safe forever. Vincent does not keep his promise, Orcus, the god of oaths, can give him a trip to hell.

The problem is their job at as agents of Caulborn, a sort of paranormal bureau of investigation, deals with, vampires, golems, dragons and other paranormal characters is inherent with danger. ***spoiler*** Ironically when an organization, The Keepers, is hired to keep Meg safe does a cost benefit analysis, they decided the best way to do that is to put her in stasis.

OK the premise of the book is a little lame. All Vincent has to do is explain Meg about the situation and problem is over. Instead we get over eight hours of craziness. Vincent is not using any of his investigative abilities and is really running around like a chicken with his head cut off. But I did really miss Gearstripper, the mechanical genius gremlin and his girlfriend, girlfriend Petra -- daughter of Aphrodite and made of living stone and Vincent’s followers. Meg has a love interest and their courting is very sweet. Yep, I did use that word. Put two intelligent geeks together with a sense of propriety, and their dating is sweet.

Even though the plot is not the greatest, Vincent does acquire new powers. Is it worth buying this book. Probably not? I say that because, it is a big change in what he will be able to do and will be included in the next book. But if you’re like me and like to know all the background in stories, then buy the book
