Loved it! S.A. Klopfenstein took the series to another level with this one. There are so many incredible scenes that stand out in my head as I reflect upon this book; ranging from beautiful to absolutely brutal. Sometimes when I read books and am at an intense part, I have to put my hand across the bottom half of the page so my darting eyes do not accidentally reveal something too soon. (I know, silly). I had to do this many times while reading The Rage of Saints, because Stephen did such an inc ...more

Wow! I've never read about a character who continues to be betrayed over and over again. Who has endured so much strife and keeps getting up to continue fighting for what is right.

I am so hoping that Tori finally catches a break in the next book of the series.

I honestly love this book so much. It's unpredictable, it's exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I definitely recommend this, and of course the first book too. If you want a fantasy book with a layered plot, this is for you. If you want something well written, this is for you. I am completely invested and the characters, so that might tell you something of the quality ...more

back part 2 ...one epic adventure
Fantastic world of fantasy, determination, strength, resilience, friendship, truth, life,and so much more. Yes, here is where I tell you that you should have read/listen to the first book of this series. But at the same time I want to tell you that you can jump right in from here. I had the pleasure of listening to the first book and did so again before ge

I just loved it. Fast moving and always kept me guessing. Beautiful scenes, new characters to love but so much development of old ones. Definitely an unexpected ending. I can't wait for the next book! ...more

Klopfenstein does not disappoint in book two! I really enjoyed the first book in The Shadow Watch series but “The Rage of Saints” brings even more to the table. I am not typically the type to get so into a book I can’t put it down, but the entire last half of this book I found myself flying through chapters anxious to know how things turn out. Each chapter is packed with action and surprise, ending on the characteristic Klopfenstein cliff hanger. The Rage of Saints is definitely a book of unfore ...more

Well, that was worth it! This series just keeps getting better. I said after the first book that I wanted more world-building and to better understand the magic system, and we get both of those things and so much more.

The characters were already interesting in the first book,and it's like they went from color to 4D in this book. The number of twists they endure through and sometimes insitigate propels the reader onward because you think you know what might happen, only to have the world flipped

A good second book in the series. The author has created a tale of political intrigue and change where one side feels their cause is better than the other. Characters plot against each other to bring about the change they desire. It’s not until it is too late that the heroine discovers the plot to enact change that is not her desired outcome. The diverse landscape in the fictional land is well thought out and intriguing. How a culture has survived when forced to live in a frozen world and have d ...more

I received a free copy of the audiobook from AudiobookBoom in exchange for an honest review.
Book 2 in the Watcher Epic finds our protagonist Tori in new situations with new characters and some old favorites. The evil ruler is still at large and the dynamics have changed. The story is not resolved but the reader/listener is not left on edge. The narration is excellent. I look forward to the continuing story.

Where Next?

After the first book comes he second... Tori takes on more and grows into herself. The story is amazingly well written, and having completed it you can see my next question... do they get what they need will they solve the mysteries and will Darien ever be good for Tori

Looking forward to the next installment...

...which is the best compliment I think I can give about a book. The characters are interesting and easy to sympathize with, even the ones you may not particularly like. The plot is complex enough to keep the reader guessing. Thanks for a captivating story.
