Imagine a world full of rules, hatred, and segregation. People are separated into ranks, based on intelligence, strength, and the rank of your ancestors. Communicating with people outside of your rank is forbidden, unless necessary for work, and befriending them results in death. When you are given your rank by the High Council, your destiny is chosen for you. There is no love. There is no romance. There is no hope. Promises takes an incredible journey through this world.
Zayn Malik is a Swamper, the lowest of the low. His position on the totem pole is just beneath the Birthers, sitting right on top of the dirt. In a society where everyone is separated based on their classification, being a Swamper is practically a death sentence. Being forced to do the society’s dirty work is far from ideal, but when Zayn has a chance encounter with a childhood friend everything changes.
Soon Zayn begins to test the limits of his society and see just how far you can bend the rules before you break them.
Promises is an incredible story of passion, authority, and forbidden romance. This story is one of That Mormon Girl’s most active stories, and for that, I am thankful. Her writing never ceases to amaze me, and this story’s incredible plot could make a Directioner out of anyone.
