I want to draw pink fluffy hearts around this book. When I was originally approached by Inkspell Publishing about reviewing an ARC of The Watcher I said yes because the cover is simply breathtaking. It might be silly to literally judge a book by its cover, but it’s always the first thing that I notice. Plus who doesn’t love angels? I mean really hot godlike creatures with wings? I’m swooning as I write this.
Mia Crawford is an amazing character, she might actually be one of my all-time favorites and that is saying a lot because I read more books than are probably healthy for me. Not only is she relatable, but she has this passion for knowledge and discovering the truth that I envy. Lisa Voisin has talent spilling from her hands with this story and you can tell it’s well researched. (Though I doubt many people have heard of the Book of Enoch, but I’m strange so I have.)
Voisin’s writing draws you in and right from the beginning you’re thrown into the thick of things and I love it. My problem with a lot of stories is they slow down so much that they get boring and it takes me forever to read because the story just doesn’t grab me. But The Watcher dug its hooks into me from the very first chapter on and I couldn’t put it down.
I adore the way Mia is written. She has just enough teenager in her that you can relate to her worries for friends and school, but not enough that you want to slap her and rant about how annoying she is. There is a balance between the two and Voisin has found it.
I’m pretty sure I enjoyed every character in this book and oh my god I totally want my own Michael! Michael Fontaine isn’t just the new kid at school, he’s a walking mystery and he has a secret that involves Mia. I really don’t want to give too much of this story away because I think it should be read with no real knowledge of what’s going on because it makes it that much more surprising when things pop up at you.
The ending honestly stunned me. I saw it going a different way completely and them BAM…twist! It was amazing. I sat there staring at my Kindle Fire when it was done and repeatedly swiped my finger across the screen, like, that’s it? There’s no more? Must have more! This is honestly the best book I’ve read in a long time and I urge my fellow bloggers and young adult readers to check it out!
'The Watcher' shouldn't have captivated me the way that it did.
It's the same old YA story, that's been told a hundred times, in a hundred different ways... or is it?
For all intents and purposes, Mia is a normal high school girl with a fascination for ancient cultures. A seemingly random event at the park throws her into a path that reveals more about her soul than she ever could imagine.
And into the path of the fallen angel that has loved her for a millennia. He has sworn to protect her, but resolved to build an impenetrable wall around his heart. But the return of his nemesis with his own resolve to claim her for his own has thrown a wrench in Michael's plans. The longer he is at her side, the harder it is for him to deny the strength of the ties that binds the two of them together.
He walked away from everything he was when he first met her. Will he forfeit his chance at redemption to be with her again?
The intensity between them was heart palpitating. The story line was filled with an array of emotions. From anger, to vengeance, anguish, hope, despair and undeniable love that brought the inevitable sting of tears to my eyes. 'The Watcher' had it all and more.
I was emotionally drained at the end of this, in a good way.
A YA romance that I highly recommend for YA Paranormal Romance lovers out there.

'The Watcher' is a young adult paranormal romance that follows Mia Crawford - our 17-year-old leading lady - as her entire world is turned upside down once she realizes that the world she thought she knew isn't what it seems. After being attacked by a mysterious and terrible creature one day, Mia turns to Michael Fontaine - who claims to know nothing of the things she describes. Mia is sure he's hiding things from her and is constantly confused by the strange feelings she has around him - the way he makes her feel and the weird images of a different time and place that fill her mind. Determined to find answers, Mia goes on a journey where she discovers her past life - one that was filled with jealousy, love, and revenge. It also shows the devastating details of her previous death and the angel cast from Heaven for loving her. Mia must know decide if she will seek out her fallen love or let the past fall far behind her.
This was a very intense and beautiful novel unlike any other I've read before. It's full of deep topics like betrayal, jealousy, spiritual concepts, past lives, reincarnation, and true love. Mia was a great main character. I found myself immediately liking her and I could easily identify with her and her struggles. She was a realistic character with obvious flaws, but she was also really endearing. Michael was a great lead male character and I felt that his personality fit perfectly alongside Mia's. The plot of the story wasn't completely original, but it was done in a way that both broke my heart and filled it with hope and love at the same time. The romance and story of true love that broke all boundaries really moved me - and I usually roll my eyes at these types of situations in books and movies. The way that the author wrote the book was simply enchanting and definitely shows her immense talent. I was immediately sucked into the book alongside Mia and I didn't want the story to end. The pace was fast but not rushed and all the various threads of the story were intertwined seamlessly throughout the book. I don't want any spoilers in this review, so I'll stop while I'm ahead. Suffice it to say that this is a completely enthralling novel by a hugely talented author and I'm definitely going to be crossing my fingers for a sequel. Highly recommended for fans of YA fantasy and those who love an amazing love story.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
