I am a beta reader for this novel and was given the chance to read it chapter by chapter. Lacy does an amazing job with the character development. Each character she writes is unique. Lacy doesnt write stories along the same lines as most authors. With the watchers she has managed to push you out of your comfort zone and write what most wont. As a debut novel lacy has done am amazing job. Book two should be just as good.

I dont normally read many paranormal stories and hadn't even read the blurb before opening this book so had no idea about what it was about. When I started reading and saw that it was in fact a paranormal story, I thought to myself 'this better be good or I'm not going to finish it'. Within the first page or two ,to my great surprise, the story got me in and wanting to keep reading. I finished it in two sittings.

This book features Lacey, Lucey and Rafe and it is a great read. It starts with a fun family afternoon out but then things change and it turns our Lacey and Lucey are more than your normal 19-year-old girls and things quickly move into the paranormal realm, more to the point another realm called Devilice where wolfs talk and people turn to smoke.

The book contains sexual tension between the characthers it gets hot, there is a real pull between them, it also has humour and great characthers. Each

Lacy LeRoch’s debut novel is simply brilliant. Watchers follows the story of twin sisters, Lacy and Lucy and the wild ride that becomes their life. Their journey into their magically awakened is fast paced and grabs your attention from the very first chapter. These twin are much like day and night when it comes to their personalities which only adds more complexity to the story as well as their perspective guardians. Oh, guardians you ask? Those aforementioned guardians… let’s just say, definit

The Watchers is my second shifter read and though it is not my genre, I am surprised when I lose myself in the story line. Since it is told in 4 POV, I found myself easily distracted and going back and fourth trying to remember whose story I am reading. That does not mean that I did not enjoy the fantasy that I took while reading it.

Twin sisters Lacy and Lucy find themselves lost in a their emotions and a world that their father tried to protect them from til the time was right. All their live

In those two years she has taken to falling asleep where her family has a hard time waking her up,sometimes for hours. Their father will holed her and sing but Lucy can't really make out what he is saying and she doesn't understand why he pushes her away when s

I REALLY enjoyed this book! It took me a hot second to get into it but when I did… I couldn’t put it down! Every single page brought something new to the story; secrets revealed, action-packed drama, alpha-love, teasers for the future… I ate it up & am so ready for a second helping because that cliffhanger is killing me.

So, the twins… I was completely heartbroken with what happened to Lacy. I almost wanted to scream at how unfair everything was. The incident in the past, the trickery she’s e

I was really impressed by this book! LeRoch has done a fabulous job creating a new world. A world that Lacy and Lucy never knew existed. A world filled with powerful, magical beings.

Lacy and Lucy are twins. They have an even closer bond than most twins, and feel the need to be with each other, and protect each other, at all times.
When Lucy is unable to rouse her sister from a deep sleep, their world suddenly changes. They discover The Watchers. And Lucy discovers Rafe.

I loved this book.
This is the first paranormal book of Lacy's that I have read and I must say that I thoroughly enoyed it.
Her writing takes the reader into another realm, the realm of fantasy and dreams. It s fluid and so descriptive that you find that you never want to put the book down. I wanted to remain in that world and aid these characters in whatever way possible.

The characters in this story were exceptional.
Lucy and Lacy the twins were amazing - each different but each pulling the reader

Winged watchers, shape shifters, girls with a phoenix trapped inside them, dragons, gargoyle-like creatures...if you like fantasy romance then you have found the next book you should read! This is more a 3.5 but I gave it the benefit of the doubt and went up to 4 because of the power of the sub-story with Bevan that you find out toward the end. Truly heart-wrenching and something that you can pick up on if you read carefully. It is such a fast-paced read, but you do need to slow down to catch th ...more

This was a very interesting story and I loved the concept of twins not knowing who or what they really were. Lucy and Lacy are thrown into a world they have not been prepared for and are really at a disadvantage. The mythical and magical elements along with the good and evil concepts made for an enchanting storyline. However, I have to say that I wish the author would have given them different names or names that were not so close as I had trouble keeping them separate and had to back track to m ...more

The Watchers (Twisted Sister Book 1) by Lacy LeRoch

4.5 Hashtags

This is my first read from this author and I wasn't disappointed. After a slightly slow start, this book had me hooked and completely immersed into Lucy and Lacy's world.

Twin sisters Lucy and Lacy know that they are different, they feel it's more than just the twin bond. However they are completely unaware of the extent of what's about to unfold. Without giving anything away this book is full of surprises and unexpected twists.

I really wanted to give this story more stars, it has a great strong plot, but I just could not do it. I keep switching from 3 stars to 4 stars as I think with some editing, separate the 2 ladies each into their own book and some leading it would easily be a 5 star book.

But this young fresh writer tries to push both girls story at you in a complex twisted story. It has HUGE gaps where you turn the page back to see if you missed something. Chapter 1 ends and it jumps from a dream world to a trip
AnessaRenee Reviews

This book is captivating and brings you into another realm, a different world. Lacy's dreamworld is instantly somewhere you want to be. Full of color and shine, not to mention the out of this world men. Lacy and Lucy are twins who are complete opposites , but they share a twin bond like no one has ever seen. They are from dependent on each other. When life seems to be stacked against them they find it hard to believe that the tales they thought to be nothing but fairy talestheir father told them

I was given a copy of 'The Watchers' from Lacy LeRoch, in exchange for an honest review.

'The Watchers' was my introduction to Lacy's books, what an introduction it was! At first I was a little confused with what was happening, but as the story progressed & you started to get the information coming, events started to make sense. The storyline flowed, the extra POV's helped mesh all the information that was needed. Twins Lacy & Lucy have lived a very protected life, knowing they aren't nor

When I started reading this book, in all honesty, I wasn't sure it was going to be my cup of tea - there are lots of different types of characters and my mind doesn't always work quick enough to keep up with what's going on! However, on starting reading it was one of those books that I just couldn't put down. I completely fell in love with Lacy and Lucy as well as the other characters, especially Rafe - the book is very descriptive and it was so easy for the characters and the places to come to ...more

Twin 19 year old sisters, Lacy and Lucy, live a very protected life, even from their real history, with their father and mother. Knowing they are different to other normal 19 year olds their bond is even tighter. They begin their journey discovering their magical powers.

A job well done Lacey! I really loved this book I couldn't put it down. I even read it on the bus to and from work. There was a lot of different emotions going through me whilst reading this. It really was a journey for us as a reader as well as a journey of love for the characters. I was so wrapped up in both of the sisters stories.

Lucy and Lacy think they're just normal girls but nothing could be farther from the truth, as things unfold they find themselves at the centre of a world they never knew existed, there will be love, deceit, betrayal and death and it looks like this is just the beginning of what's to come !
This is an incredible read, it's unique and interesting, I was so totally absorbed in the story that I didn't want to put it down. There's plenty of intrigue and twists to keep you engrossed in trying to figure

I absolutely loved this book. I was familiar with the mating concept because of Christine Feehan and all the shifter books I read, but I loved how much more in-depth this book was with the concept. I felt there were a lot of unanswered questions, the girls weren't given a lot of information. Hopefully, a lot of that will be answered in the next book as we are introduced to more of their world. I felt that there was a lot of the story that could have been explored more, but I am not counting off ...more

I really liked this book. I would recommend reading it. Without giving any spoilers, I really wish the author would have given closure to one of the important characters. If any of the characters deserved an HEA, it was this one. Her outcome is left undetermined and is barely mentioned in the next book, Warrior. I'm holding out hope the character gets an HEA in Killer, but even that book is dedicated to the story of others. Don't get me wrong, this is a good series, I only mention this flaw beca ...more

A quick read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Once again, I'm drawn into a paranormal book. I'm not usually a paranormal reader but this isn't just another paranormal book. The story of two twin sisters who live through tragedy and heartbreak. So many mythical creatures out to destroy them but through their sisterly bond is not match for all the harm they endure. These Phoenix Shifters end up rising from the evil set out to destroy them.
Leanne ~ Tales From The Heart
My first read by this author and it won't be my last. What an interesting tale it was, quite an original paranormal.
Lucy and Lacy are sisters and their world is about to change dramatically.
This is a story of another realm, intriguing shifters such as the Phoenix and an evil stepmother. Mix that with murder, kidnapping, finding one's true mate and sizzling sex scenes and you have one whopper of a story.
I'll look forward to reading book two to see what happens next.
Oh my God I just finished and jeepers I loved it the not knowing of what the girls are going through the passion that Lucy and Rafe have for each other, and the pain for Lacy god I felt Bevans pain, but the beautiful passion for Lucy and Rage, thank you again I really enjoyed it even through the pain there was beauty, there is mystery,passion,love, heartache and betrayal. Thank you for introducing me to this world it's a definite must read.
Brandi Reeves-Pearson (Saints and Sinners Books)
What an amazing paranormal read! Really enjoyed this book right from the start! I liked the author gave different point of views and let us know how the main characters were feeling/thinking at the time. i felt the book went along fast and i actually liked that. some books drag out the story line but this one didnt. there was some action as well and we get to see some of the watchers in action. I am definitely one-clicking the next one in the series! this is a must read!
