Another awesome book in the Red series. With each book we get another side of Red, last book I commented on how much she’d changed from meeting her family but now I feel like she’s becoming herself. The beginning of this book was almost nostalgic, I’m starting to realize that there’s a pattern with the Red series, we always awaken with Red and her complicated thoughts and her complicated life.

The first few chapters felt more like contemporary fiction for me, and that’s not a complaint. We see F

The Watchmaker is the third novel in The Red Series. The stakes begin to grow, some mysteries get answered, but some deeper mysteries begin to emerge about what's behind Optica and the mysterious figures beyond its walls.

I used to be an English prof teaching lit and creative writing, and I appreciate both "high" and well-written popular fiction. This novel series really impressed me. It's an extremely gripping read from the first pages, and works for young adult on up, with enough meat to the pl

Again she has wrapped you tight into not knowing who and what to trust. I found myself inside Red's head trying to decide who to trust !
Can't wait to read book four!!

Curiouser and curiouser. The third book in the series has so many twists, turns, and surprises that my head is spinning trying to grasp it all. As this mystery begins to unravel, we learn a lot more about each character and start to understand what they've been through. I'll be cheering Red on in the final book as she hopefully will find out who her real friends are. 5 stars for an amazing series by Amanda Witt. I hope she continues to write. ...more
