Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The first book in the Watchers Chronicles gets off to a confusing start and stays confusing for far too long. In part, that's because author Miller is trying to introduce five 19-year-olds with few memories (other than nightmares) of a horrific past as well as their younger selves who lived through the agony. Even though the time frame continues to move back and forth, once the characters are established, readers can sink into this classic good-versus-evil battle in which Sam, brother Jonah, Jenna, Carly, and J realize they are Watchers, integral role-players in the war between angels, both fallen and guardian. Miller gets points for vivid writing, and incidents like a hellish plane ride and stormy battles might well put readers on the edge of their seats. Characterizations are generally strong, but it is Jenna's 5-year-old son, Mikey, who tugs at the heartstrings. Those who persevere will be caught up and look forward to the next installment. Grades 9-12. --Ilene Cooper


Dawn Miller has stepped up the game for teen dramas and carved a unique niche in the world of supernatural thrillers. Her clever and unique machination between good and evil leads the reader on an exciting journey through darkness, guided by the power of faith and hope. As a film critic who has watched thousands of movies made from books, I cannot wait to see this one!

Simply put...Dawn Miller is a brilliant writer for adults as well as teens. --Holly McClure, LA film critic, producer and media personality for FOX, CNN, MSNBC

Would you live your life differently if you knew there was an invisible world around you? If you knew there was more to life than you ever imagined?

These are the questions raised by Dawn Miller's debut novel in The Watchers Chronicles. Imagine if Stephen King sat down with Frank Peretti and the creator of Heroes and they collaborated on a novel.

Yeah, it's that good. And yeah, it will blow your mind. And maybe make you want to keep the lights on!

Five friends from middle school, bonded together through a common experience that none of them can remember. Now they've gone their separate ways, each making choices that affect a lifetime.

And that open doors to things they could never begin to imagine.

Strange happenings: dreams, nightmares, flashbacks....all serving one purpose. To reunite these young people in one location for one feat that only they can achieve.

Problem is, each holds a piece to the ultimate puzzle, with one holding the key.

Dawn Miller is a MASTER at building suspense, foreshadowing and giving you just enough breadcrumbs along the trail of pages to keep you guessing. She is a word crafter of the highest caliber, and I'm eager for more about Jonah, J, Jenna, Carly and Mikey.

I had a hard time remembering that these characters (with the exception of Mikey) were all supposed to be in their late teens. The novel is supposed to be geared toward a young audience, but I found it engaging and captivating.

Portions of the story reminded me of Stephen King's "It"; other parts reminded me of the first season of "Heroes"...and the spiritual overtones of one of Frank Peretti's earlier works left a fragrance that grew sweeter as the novel progressed.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I always say that there's basically three types of books that mix religion & fiction. One type is where the book is religious to the point that the story is overwhelmed & overshadowed. Another type where the religion content is so awkwardly placed into the book to the point where the plot development doesn't feel natural. Then there's the type of book where the religious content mixes perfectly with the rest of the story, making for one fine book. Relax readers, this book is solidly in the third category.

Sam doesn't talk to his childhood friends much anymore, but lately he's been experiencing things that remind him of certain mysterious events that happened in his youth- things he can't exactly remember. Somehow knowing that their lives- and souls- depend on it, Sam attempts to gather all of his friends together, including his wayward brother Jonah. With all of them having similar episodes of memory loss & nightmares, they have no way of knowing that they are the legendary Watchers- people who will be instrumental in deciding the outcome of an epic battle between the forces of Heaven & Hell!

The plot for this book sounded great, but I'll admit that I was a little skeptical for multiple reasons. First off, angels have started becoming the new "sparkly Twilight vampires" in YA fiction, so I didn't know if I'd be jumping into a series that would be similar to this. Don't worry- it isn't that type of book. Secondly, I'm used to my religious reads falling into the categories listed above, but I shouldn't have worried- this book was excellently written.

I really enjoyed the slow buildup to the finale of this book, although once or twice I did feel as if the plot could have moved a little bit faster. (Ok, so I was impatient.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Five friends who have the same dream and forgotten memories have been called to battle the forces of evil. Sam, reeling from a recent family tragedy, has been having the same reoccurring nightmare, and awakens to find strange drawings, that he doesn't remember doing. Calling on his childhood friends, he realizes that they too are having the same nightmares. They are all intrinsically linked and prophesized to be guardians (Watchers). And it would seem that only they can save humanity and stop the fallen angels from reeking havoc on the world. As the group struggles to understand their role in this mission, they have to learn to trust each other. After all, they are in the middle of a war, between good and evil, and they must protect humanity at all cost. And as the truth is revealed, they must have faith, in each other and those forces around them that they can't see.

This book reminded me of a couple of things.....vintage Stephen King, with a little Constantine and another recent movie (I can't remember the name) that I saw about the end of times or near the end of times, with fallen angels and an eventual showdown or struggle between the forces of good and evil. I definitely can see why some argue that it could be marketed like the Left Behind series, but I think it could be more. There was the Stephen Kingish type beginning (friends intrinsically linked through events from their "It"), but there is also the religious aspect (like Kings "The Stand). When I selected this book, I knew that there would be heavy overtones of religion and wanted to see how it would play out in a young adult story. It was definitely heavy, and offers a lot of food for thought and discussion, but I think once you sink your teeth in it, it is a decent read.
