Can angels sin?
More than just a teen paranormal love triangle -- although it's also
that, and enticingly so -- The Watcher is an exploration of what sin and
redemption really mean. Voisin uses her dialogue well to touch on
subjects that might seem overpowering in prose.
The pacing of this story is excellent. A bit of a trigger warning in places, because evil is as evil does, and here we have a demon hunting a girl who is protected by an angel. Good amount of heat as it relates to its target audience -- that time in life when a kiss from the right person can mean everything.
About the Book:
Millennia ago, he fell from heaven for her.
Can he face her without falling again?
Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings—soft and silent like snow—and somebody trying to steal them.
When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but not from any textbook.
In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?
Ancient history is only the beginning.
