Also re-introduces the Crusade a serious threat. Really wish the author could/did continue with this series -- I'd like to see where she was going.

As usual her world is so intriguing.
In a series of stupid protagonists, this one takes the cake. It really is irritating as Saintcrow has an interesting idea and technically the writing is well done. I said "technically".
It's too bad that someone let her slip all these idiots in wh ...more
While there is still the weakness of not being worthy of a relationship from the Watcher in this story, it is not nearly as prevalent as in some of the earlier ones. Possibly this is because the heroine witch in this story is a strong character, strongest most brave and daring yet so fragile and tiniest of all the lead witches. Caroline or Caro as she prefers is a Mindhealer. Unlike Green witches or healers, the Mindhealer is one who travels into ...more
Last book of the series so far. I shudder to think if it was the last. It is also a standalone. My favorite book ever she wrote Working For The Devil. It really makes you think and is fascinating. Never mind that, this book is full of action.
I'm actually reviewing all five of the Watcher books. They're quite short—novella length, really—and very much interrelated (especially the first four). I read all of them in about a day and a half, despite doing other things. I do advise taking them all in row, which is the equivalent of reading one "normal" novel.
Dark Watcher opens in Santiago City (aka Saint City), with a quartet of witches. Mindhealer is the only book that takes place outside of Santiago City, which seems to be the primary s

Caroline (Caro) Robbins is a Mindhealer, a special kind of witch. She has the ability to go into the mind of someone who has been psychically ravaged by Dark forces, and repair the damage. During an ill-advised drive to a safe house in the city, Caro almost becomes the next victim. She is rescued by a Watcher named Merrick, and brought to the safe house.
Watchers and Wit ...more
However, there is something terribly wrong in Saint City. The dark is attacking the minds of normals and witches. As soon as she arrives, Caro finds herself under attack. She is rescued by the Watcher, Merr ...more
Merrick is by far my favorite character in this series. He has some depth and a complex background. However, I didn't really care for Caro. I prefer heroines that are tough and can stand on their own. She didn't come across that way to me. She was stubborn, sometimes stupidly so, which in turn almost gets her and Merrick both killed. Caroline seemed more of a spoiled child t ...more
Caro is a Mindhealer - a very rare gift among the Lightbringers. After her last Watcher died saving her life, Caro swore she would never agree to another to safeguard her. Well Merrick will not take no for an answer, especially when Caro is HIS witch!
The Dark factions are attacking Lightbringers (and normal humans) and Caro is called in on a special case. While traveling to the Lightbringer safehouse, she is attacked and Merrick saves her.
Caro is a very s ...more
I'm ready now for some originality...something besides the warrior who wants the witch, but the witch is too independent for her own good and doesn't want him. I'm kind of tired of the "take my ...more
The story's is well written and full of action an things happening. Never once was I board or wanting to put it down. A book I recommend and the series too.
Well done lillith saintcrow. Great book. Keep stirring these ones. Xxxx
so, a good read but not my favorite Lilith Saintcrow book
My other complaint is that there is no more books in the series. Major disappointment.
Non-stop action, intense romance, and imaginative worldview kept me turning pages long after I should have been sleeping. Gutsy heroines and tormented heroes abound. I thoroughly enjoyed this read.
