Better than the first... It was great and exciting up until Athen came back. The revelation of the mystery of why Athen remembered was "cut short". Didn't explain how he can touch Ana as a ghost or when he realized she was his. Even the strbucks scene where he ended up joking with her .. Didn't tell what he was thinking at that moment. Would have been romantic.

Then I found the fight scenes and Ana's words to be repeating. I ended up just skimming through without interest at all.

Ana didn't even...more

Having read the first book Awakening in The Watchers Trilogy which ended with a cliff hanger, I was excited to start the second book, Legions, by Karice Bolton. I found a few aspects of the first book problematic: it is extremely wordy, details within the storyline are repetitive and the emotions of the characters flip-flop to extremes. When I turned on my Kindle and started reading Legions, I sadly faced the same problems and begrudgingly worked my way through the book. However, I did find a fe...more

I'm giving this one 3 stars because I'm still enjoying the story. However, I have a couple issues that drive me crazy. First, I know these Kindle books are being churned out at an incredibly fast pace, but please, for the love of all that is holy, PROOFREAD. Basic grammar mistakes, incorrect words and typos are bad enough, but when you use the wrong name?!? In the first book Cyril was once referred to as Cyrus. In this book, there was a point when the author wrote "Athen and Cyril" when there is...more
This is going to be a short review for me. Even though I enjoyed the book, I enjoyed the first one in the series much more. Awakening seemed to have a bit more romance, which I crave in my stories.

The book starts off where Awakening has left the reader with Athen being taken and Ana trying to come to terms that it may take a long time to get him back. She is really tormented with the "I should have" feelings and wishes that she had done things differently. She feels that this is all her fault.

Just My Opinion
Normally, I never expect sequels to live up to the original story. Lately, I keep getting surprised by my authors! Legions was a fantastic follow-up to Awakening. It picks up right where Awakening leaves off and it's a thrill ride the whole way through. I even think it may surpass Awakening.

Much more of the back story and the history of the angels and demons is revealed and the action almost never stops! I was vested in the characters after the first book, but Legions, I couldn't put down for a...more

Not a beat was skipped with the second installment in the, The Watcher’s Trilogy. I dare not give too much away for those that have not read Awakening (you can see my review HERE), so consider this a SPOILER ALERT. If you haven’t read it, please go read it – drop everything – and read Awakening. Then come back to learn about Legions…

Legions begins right where Awakening...more
After reading Awakening, I had hopes this series could get better. In some ways it did because there was a bit more action and it kept a somewhat faster pace. But the book lacks in character development, particularly with the main character. Grammar and spelling issues are still high in number and distracting. The author didn't seem to know what to do with the subplot and main plot - the resolution of one of these was extremely anti-climatic and the character's ability to deal with the situation...more

Even a toxic kindle copy couldn't stop me from finishing this second book in The Watchers Trilogy. I just had to know how long/when they were going to get back *spoiler*! The battles were pretty short (I guess they were really only battling the minions though, for now.) but I enjoyed seeing Ana's strength & confidence emerge when fighting & training. I was so waiting to hear that secret come out at the very end & then BAM! someone is taken once again from the family. I just...more
So I really wanted to like this series. The plot is intresting and new. I loves Athen, and Aria,and Cy, but Ana was driving me nuts. Man its like just listening to her constantly rambling in her head, paragraph after paragraph. I would have like more conversations to get information across and the story line moving. But Ana really is just selfish and insecure and I sadly just couldn't take it anymore. I have no doubt that there is a very good plot written in the rest of the book you just have to...more
This one was better written than the first, but she still flops back and forth between past and present tense.. That and typos.. Lots of typos. She also gets confused apparently and mixes up the characters' names at certain points. If I didn't have the kindle version I'd have my red pen out.

Book Review: Legions (The Watchers Trilogy) Book 2
By: Karice Bolton

This book series is truly exciting. My favorite genres all in one. Which are paranormal, fantasy, and romance. In the mix of all these genres, you find laughter and peace. The author, Karice Bolton did a great job keeping them in a perfect balance. There is so much happening in the flow of the story. Which keeps the reader in suspense continually flipping the pages. It really is hard to put the book down.

The story plot has a gre...more

Not a disaster, way better than the first installment.
I still couldn't get over the words: honey,sweetie,baby..... who the beck does call his/her partner by those often, its baaaad
I was really looking forward to this installment in the series, but I feel a little let down. Some of the plot development came along far to quickly. There should have been some more struggle, the struggle cultivated these characters so much already. Then getting to revealing additional abilities, that I didn't like seeing. I do understand that it have the needed impact to continue on, but I think it was displaced of could have been circumvented. I may reevaluate once I finish the third book in...more
Still liking it. Kept me reading.

The one thing I love about Karice’s writing is she really makes you ‘feel’ the love between Athen & Ana. It really does jump off the page how much these two respect and love each other.

The way ‘Awakening’ finished I knew Ana was going to be doing it tough until she could be reunited with Athen. Karice writes the time Ana spends away from Athen until he can be awakened, very heartfelt.

I was mentally trying to hold Ana back from making a mistake that wo...more

Summary From Goodreads:

As the magical holiday season is disrupted with an afternoon of horror, it becomes apparent that the Legions have begun their uprising around the globe, and Ana does her best to stay strong even though her world has been shattered. It is up to Ana to find the strength within and not fall prey to the dark side as she begins her chase...more

Ana has barely finished the awakening process herself, and now she has to try to track down Athen and help him to begin the awakening process. Finding Athen is the easy part, discovering he is with the woman who haunts Ana's dreams is the hard part.

Legions picks up exactly where Awakening leaves readers, and I love that. While Awakening is a great opening book, Legions seals the deal making this series a force to be reckoned with. Between the amazing use of imagery, and a writing style that is s...more

Legions is book two in The Watcher's Trilogy. (**Spoiler Alert**) When the book opens, Ana is deeply in mourning over losing Athen and is still being tormented by the realization that her fears about the serpent woman are true. (**Spoiler over***)
I thought that they would spend the entire book trying to get Athen back, but a lot more happens than i thought it would. Besides the love story between Ana and Athen, we learn more about Ana's ancestry and the importance of her role among the white d...more
I enjoyed the second book in the series, Ana has had a lot of learning curves in such a short space of time and things just keep happening. Mourning the loss of Athen, Ana's resolve and sanity is tested as she tries her hardest to get him back. Despite it not being 50 years, there is a complication because Lilith is after him too and he doesn't remember her at all. The battle to end all battles is looming and Ana needs to get her head on straight to fight but her thoughts are only of Athen. Afte...more

I read and reviewed the first book in this trilogy, called Awakening, which was an interesting book with a pretty big romantic story line. The first book ended with a huge cliff hanger, so if you haven't read the first book and you don't want to be spoiled then you should wait to read this review until you read the first book.

I enjoyed the idea of someone searching to find his soul mate and doing whate...more
I don't know if this ever happens to anyone else, but for me this was the kind of book where you come to a point of rising action and you stop (or feel like you want to stop) reading for a while because you're afraid something unpredictable is going to happen. You always hope the damsel in distress gets rescued (or not I suppose?) or that the hero turns up just in time to save the bus load of people from barreling over a cliff, but what if that doesn't happen? For me, it's being really intereste...more

Just when Ana is awakened, she has Athen ripped from her world and he is sent back to start a new life without knowledge of her or his family. So on top of having to relearn her past life, Ana now must go searching for Athen to begin his awakening. And if that’s not enough, Legions are forming more than ever and taking out families one by one. Ana and her family have a lot on their plate and it may all prove to be too much for Ana to handle. Will desperate times call for desperate measures? Or w...more
Now, onto book two - Legions. As with most book series, the subsequent books I generally enjoy more than the first, or the one before if it wasn't the first. That could just be me, or it could be that the author improves with each book, or both. Whichever is the reason doesn't matter. This one was outstanding!

The book pretty much picks up right where we left off in The Awakening. First, we get to experience what it is like to go through an Awakening, which I would compare to childbirth; purely b...more

Book two of three and the series continues on it's path of fulfillment!!! This book is just as good as the first and has left me wanting book 3 (which I have just bought and will be reading tonight!!).

There are twists and turns aplenty in this as Ana tries to cope with losing Athen when she has only just "remembered" him. To be perfectly honest, I was finding Ana a bit annoying to start with as she seemed to do nothing but whine with the occasional spurt of backbone. But then partway through the...more
In Book 1, after patiently waiting for 51 years, Athen together with his family - Arie and Cyril were able to bring Ana back to them and re-introduce her to the underworld. It was great to see Ana and Athen reunited after being separated for half a century. However, their celebration became short lived when out of the blue, Athen was killed by a black demon.

The excerpt for Book 2, Legions, promises a great story line. I had to read Book 2 to find out the plight of Athen reborn as a ‘human’ and...more
"Legions" is the second in Karice Bolton's "The Watchers" trilogy, and once again Athen, Arie, Ana, and Cyril are faced with their task of battling dark demons.

At the end of the first book, Athen was taken. Ana, whose power of "seeing" manifests in her dreams, keeps seeing her boyfriend hanging with a really hot demon woman. Indeed, they're hanging out at their local Starbuck's. Ouch. Not only is she not supposed to approach him--this because it could cause him to jump to another location and b...more

If Ana thought her life was changed when she found out she was actually an ancient protector who battled demons, then it's been absolutely turned upside down with the loss of her soulmate, Athen. Unfortunately there's not too much Ana can do but wait for him to regain his memories and come back to her. And she needs him to do it fast...

Ana's been having visions of something sinister on the horizon. And as she soon comes to find out, her visions are shockingly accurate. So the sooner their entire...more

I really enjoyed the story as it is a very different premise. Although the back story involves angels and demons, the novel isn't particularly religious, which would have been a giant turn off for me. There was a good balance of paranormal, action and romance. There is also an adorable English bulldog. Who could resist that? I was very happy to go right on to the third book in the trilogy and will look for other books by this author.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to some grammar...more
