The Unintended (The Watcher #1)
Don't get me wrong, it does some things right. I like that there wasn't a creepy age difference between the protagonist and her vampire love-interest. I like that she actually tried to learn some things, like how to use a crossbow or throw knives. I like that she at least had to think a little bit during the climax. I like that, at least at the end, her team of protectors do t...more

The Unintended is an excellent novel, particularly for the first of a trilogy. It has all the elements for its demographic (young readers) but as a mature person, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

She knows that she'll probably lose in a fight against them but she would want to go down trying, which says a lot about her character.

Listen I got this book as a free PDF so I had nothing invested in it from the beginning. But, I have to say even for a paranormal romance this is just dull. I think I finished this book but I can't say if I did because I just started to drift off halfway through this thing. It's tired its been done before and it adds nothing new.
However one thing did bug me, the biblical stuff. I am not saying that including the bible was bad because I have read a biblical paranormal romance and it was so bad it...more
