The words echo in Sunny Martin’s head each time she looks in the mirror. Since the night she was torn from her car and drained of her blood, Sunny’s fear of the hungry beast within her is rivaled only by the fear of exposure.

My first Vampire read was Christoper Pike's "Last Vampire" series and since then I have read the good, the bad and first chapter snoozers. When I picked up "Watcher" I anticipated having something traditionally romantic that I could read over my Winter Break.

Within five minutes I realized that "Watcher" was not a traditional vampire story, nor was I going to sleep that night. As the sun rose the next morning, I had cried, laughed, loved, hunted and almost lost my innocence/humanity through the s

Sunny hates the monster she has become. She wishes she could go back to her old life, and still watches her daughter from a distance. She is sad to see her daughter mature without her and also to see that she now has a grandchild that she will never know. After yet another incident where the beast escapes her Sunny finds herself on the move again. She is determined this time to keep as far away from people as possible, and be close to the forest to let her inner beast get its f

On the whole, I really enjoyed this novel. The main character is well-developed. I liked her and felt empathy toward her very early on. She is bad-ass and hangs on to a strong sense of integrity and humanity, despite what she refers to as the monsters within that have taken her over since her attack and abandonment by a vampire.

The middle of the book is where I had an issue. The beginning of the book was exciting/interesting. The middle of the book lost some of that excitement as we b

I won this book in the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway. I was pretty excited about reading this book.
Although there were several parts of the book that were a bit slow, I really really enjoyed this book. Once I got into it, I could not put the book down. And it definitely left me wanting more!!

This book was not like most other books that I've read. It was refreshing to read a couple that had issues and problems in attaining their happily ever after.

I really liked Sunny and I felt for her. I als

Fabulous read! I really enjoyed the new twists to a genre that I believed couldn't be improved. Well done, am really looking forward to reading the next installment.

Watcher is a vampire tale to savor. Like a fine wine, it’s deliciously rich and warms you to the core. This adventurous novel about a newborn vampire is a fresh take on the genre. You follow the protagonist, Sunny, from the start of her early and wild blood drinking youth to experiencing her blossom into a more confident and calculating hunter. It’s a classic coming-of-age story at its heart, but far more dangerous and provocative. Sunny soon becomes ensnared in the grips of lust and love when s ...more

Watcher is a typical vampire paranormal romance book. As I have said on several occasions, paranormal romance is not a genre that I am fond of, so please keep that in mind when reading this review. Watcher is the first person account of Sunny Martin, and unfortunately the voice that this novel is written in makes it difficult to enjoy for the first few hundred pages. The novel itself feels tedious, even as we learn that Sunny became one of the Chosen against her will, and still watches over her ...more

Roh Morgon discovered the magic in stories at an early age, both in books and the ones she made up in her head. As a child growing up in a remote Southern California canyon, she explored the wild hills barefoot with her brothers and rode her horse bareback at top speed. A wicked youth spent hitchhiking across the West and perched on the backs of Harleys eventually gave way to soccer mom duties and ...more
