Deadly to Promise Release Day Blitz
by Mia Hoddell
A broken promise is all it takes.
Becoming an E.K isn’t a choice for Serena – it’s a necessity to survive. To destroy the
Elementals she has to leave her old life behind. She has to train and follow a strict regime.
But with time against her, she has only a few weeks to master the skills Kai spent his whole
The knowledge passed down from her ancestors is crucial to the Elementals demise and the
success of their mission. However, the path they must follow is lined with riddles, each more
confusing than the next. It doesn’t matter how close to succeeding they get, it’s never enough.
The Elementals are one step ahead at every revelation and that can only mean one thing – the
E.Ks have a traitor among them.

“Have you ever been swimming here?” I asked moving my head to watch his reaction
as I brought my feet up out of the water and folded them beside me.
“Yeah, most summers when I came here. We all used to use it as a way to cool off or
just have some fun in between training.”
“How about skinny dipping?” I asked my grin growing due to the thoughts running
through my head.
“Why? You want to try it?” he challenged.
“Only if you go first,” I laughed but stopped instantly when he removed his shirt and
tossed it behind us. My eyes widened in surprise and I started to regret my words. “You’re
not being serious are you?” I stuttered as he pulled off his shoes, throwing them over to
where his shirt was crumpled.
“You can’t chicken out now Rea. It was your idea,” he said smiling as he removed
each sock, teasing me as they ended up with the rest of his discarded garments.
I just stared at him, my lips moving but not making a sound as I tried to find an
He laughed at me. “Relax Rea, I’m just teasing you. Well unless you’ve changed your
mind. In that case I’m being deadly serious.” He had a cheeky grin on his face as he spoke
and I pushed him hard, toppling him into the water below.
There was a lot of splashing but Kai surfaced finally, taking a deep breath as he
flicked the hair out of his eyes. I was clutching my stomach in fits of laughter as I bent over.
The shock on his face was priceless.
“Oh you are so dead Rea, so, so dead,” he said, his voice ragged as the cold water and
shock affected his half naked body. I just continued to laugh as he floated in front of me, his
head bobbing up and down in a comical way.
“Good, now we are starting to get somewhere. Although, you are totally wrong about
the Elementals; they are killers and you are blinded into thinking what they want you to see.
They have never hurt you because you have aligned yourself with them but they have killed
many people and you are helping them.”
She flinched as Jack’s words struck a nerve. “Lies!” she hissed before grabbing
Tyler’s wrist, taking him by surprise and dislodging the gun from his grip.
All the other E.Ks raised their weapons, training their barrels on her automatically as
Tyler regained his balance.
“Earth now!” she bellowed and the house began to shake as a green woman in a long
flowing dress made up of ivy and spirit started to appear in front of us.
On my weakened leg I collapsed to the floor again with a scream.
The E.Ks opened fire but another Elemental took its place within seconds.
“Kai, you have to silence her. It’s like what happened with me!” I shouted over the
noise as I clutched at my ankle, which was now bright red and sending sharp flashes of pain
through my leg.
“Tyler, silence her,” I heard Jack roar and then everything seemed to slow down.
I saw her body, limp and lifeless falling towards the floor. Her arms trailed behind her,
bouncing up slightly as they collided against the dirty wooden planks with a thud.
I screamed, covering my face so as not to see what had happened. Please don’t be
dead, please don’t be dead, I repeated in my mind despite what she had done to us. Shooting
a person was a lot different from murdering an Elemental in my opinion.

lies and deadly secrets are revealed. They overwhelm her, and the person she once was no

original idea, not to mention modern. This story had such a good plot and the story structure
was sound.” Kacii – The Kooky Bookworm (Book Blogger)
Mia Hoddell lives in the UK with her family and two cats. She spends most of her time
writing or reading and loves anything paranormal. Mia always had a love of writing but never
reading. She was more interested in sports and hated sitting still – despite getting three poems
published before the age of sixteen. Finally though, she found some novels that captured her
interest and developed a love of reading which is now one of her favourite hobbies.
Mia began with poems before moving on to short stories. Although she enjoyed this, Mia
found she had too much to tell with too little space, so later on she created her first series ‘The
Wanderer Trilogy’ and from there other ideas have emerged. With a total of nine books
planned at this moment, she is busy working on her second series ‘Elemental Killers’ before
moving onto the next idea on her ever growing list.
