Marlo finds a missing watcher and now it’s up to Lucie and Owen to go undercover to pull her out, if she’s even still alive. They find themselves thrown into the world of human trafficking and are afraid they won’t make it out alive. Caged, drugged and confused, they lose sight of their mission. Then they must face the truth about darkness and light or is it all shades of gray? How will they save someone else if they can’t even save themselves? Sometimes you have to do truly horrible things for the greater good but then what does that make you? What do you become if you are just as malicious as the dark watcher you are supposed to be saving everyone from? White Eagle says that power is power, but Owen has absorbed dark watcher gifts. He can feel himself morphing and he’s pretty sure he’s nowhere near good anymore. What will two damaged watchers do now? Are you still good if you’ve been consumed by darkness? Owen will have to figure that out before it’s too late. He meets a mysterious stranger who has an interesting offer. Owen can’t decide if it’s worth the risk but it becomes more and more appealing as he is used again and again by both sides and now that he’s actually killed someone, who will save him?

I’m author Lauren Lynne. The good side of growing up is that you can write whatever you want. The downside... now I can’t read it without my glasses! I have the soul of an adventurer but when it comes to actual danger, I’m the one running the other way. I must be an armchair adventure hound since I’m drawn to suspense, intrigue, and action when it comes to reading, writing, and film.
I spent my childhood in Milwaukie, Oregon and I'm a graduate of both Oregon State University and Portland State University with degrees in education. I’ve been passionate about reading my whole life, but my professional writing is a more recent adventure. For my sons and my students, I wrote The Secret Watchers series. Today, I have fans from age 10 to 93. Hear that? It’s my heart singing with joy.
In 2017, watch for my first children's book and a dystopian adventure to be released. Other works in progress include a fantasy novel and two different middle-grade stories in various stages of completion. Creating stories for the young and young at heart is a perfect fit for me since I love to teach curious learners, and I am, after all, a big kid who just looks like a grown up. I still brainstorm with my friends, parents, and my boys, who have grown into adults during my writing career; like their mom through, it’s just on the outside.
When I’m not doing author stuff, I can be found spending time with my friends and family, working with students, reading, gardening, baking, playing with our goofy Golden Retriever, or hiking around Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, or the Oregon Coast with my camera. Yep, I love to take pictures of scenery.
Some of my favorite reads over the years have been: Nancy Drew, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, Victoria Laurie’s Ghost Hunters and Abby Cooper Psychic Eye, cozy mysteries, Little House on the Prairie, Dragonlance, Heralds of Valdemar, and Alex Rider. All of these have had their part in inspiring me to write and publish The Secret Watchers series and my future works. My wish is for readers to have nearly as much fun reading them as I've had writing them. If you're from the Pacific Northwest, you may recognize several of the locations that Owen and some of my other characters visit because if I’ve lived it - in reality or virtually - it’s in there!

Another great read by this author. I may be a grandpa but I relate to this kid. I believe he has a lot to teach others. I've always loved adventure stories and even with the fantasy element it still grabbed me and held me captive from start to end. One complaint, I was up past my bed time reading.

Another fantastic addition to the series. So many twists and turns that you can't put it down! As always it leaves you wanting more. Can't wait for the next installment!

I really wanted to like this book but by the end I couldn't help but think that the author was just trying to stretch the books out so I would buy another. The Piper story seemed pointless and by the end of the book I didn't care what happened to Owen. Marlo and Alex are the only characters I care about anymore.
Not sure if I will read book 5 since I don't see an end in sight.
