War is a constant threat on Dell Preston’s horizon. As beta of the Lorimar pack, her job is to maintain the peace on the new border between Faerie and Earth at all costs. Even if that means playing nice with her ex, Isaac, the fae who savaged her wolf’s soul, and Enzo Garza, the flirty witch who ought to be focused on building up their magical defenses instead of tearing down the walls around Dell’s heart.
Butler, Tennessee is a pinprick on the map with a diverse population of supernaturals. It’s also chockful of humans who are unaware of the magical rift bruising the sky or the otherworldly insurgents raining down into their zip code.
A local fae’s disappearance catches Dell’s attention, but she dismisses it as an isolated event. Until it happens again. Unable to ignore the strange happenings in her town, she begins an investigation that uncovers so much more than a simple rash of kidnappings.
Now Dell finds herself at the sharp end of a pointed ultimatum. Find the missing and return them to their families or get ready for prime time. Botch this job, and forget coming soon. The war will become tomorrow’s featured attraction instead.

Hailey Edwards is a spectacular author in how she mixes in characters from her other series into each one. I just love that. You would think that it is too much however, it is just perfect. She creates characters that you love and don’t want to miss them, which you don’t have to in these series.
Promise the Moon is a spin off so you would expect to see characters from it. However, it is in first person point of view as Dell, the beta that has a big heart but has been burned. We see people from her past that want a second chance and will be staying there. I didn’t want to put this down. It pulled me in from the first snarky remark and kept me with the dynamics of the pack.
I didn’t read all of the Gemini series before this one. I recommend reading them all and you will have a better understanding of what is going on. Is it needed to enjoy Promise the Moon? Not really since I truly enjoyed it. I highly recommend any of Hailey Edwards’s books.
