Lists with This Book. I guess it’s normal, it was supposed to happen sooner or later. The first Saintcrow book I didn’t like. Damn, I feel wrong even writing this. But Cloud Watcher is the weakest book in an already weak series. I read three books out of five, and if the other two books were mostly ok to me, the fourth has not much to it to say at least “meh.
As per usual with Ms Saintcrow the setting is intriguing, unfortunately here both plot and characters were cringe wor I guess it’s normal, it was supposed to happen sooner or later.
As per usual with Ms Saintcrow the setting is intriguing, unfortunately here both plot and characters were cringe worthy for me. The plot was so stupidly clear that in the initial chapters you could spell the ending. And yes this is not exactly a mystery, but I don’t want to be told what I already know. I don’t mind retelling, but even those kind of stories need something different.
Telegraphing your ending isn’t good. She is massively stupid, whiny, and over the top in both compartment. Add a hero watvher so self-centered in his martyrdom to be annoying.
Add a secondary character whose role you’re not sure about. I can’t believe I’m writing this about her.
And it’s a pity because this story is filled with possibility: Clouc everything is flattened. The evil corporation is so evil to sainntcrow unreal, therefore never a problem. As one other reader perfectly said: View all 3 comments.
The four book in this series is turbulent as the witch is surrounded by nasty forces wanting a piece of her, even someone who is always by their side as a friend. Anya Harris is kilith resilient as she flees one step ahead of the evil snapping teeth at her heels. This last time is so close as she nearly burns to death. With no reserve money left and absolute no hope remaining, she heads to Santiago City. This story is another one filled with angst and persecution.
Book Review: Lilith Saintcrow’s Cloud Watcher – KD Did It Edits
Being gifted is not a great The four book in this series is turbulent as the witch is surrounded by nasty forces wanting a piece of her, even someone who is always by their side as a friend. Being gifted is not a great thing when all it brings about in life is fear, flight and hunger. Anya’s situation is much more dire than any of the previous books. Her ability is not as physically damaging as a fire witch, but it is just as deadly if not more so.
Anya is completely clueless about witches and what this supernatural entails. All she knows is evil things hunt her which no one else can see. Lucky for her she meets up with three witches who have been waiting for an air element to complete their set.
Depending on how a witch feels, she also lucks out in her own personal Watcher. The romance part is a bit frustrating as Anya is pulled in two directions. She wants to trust Jack but her sisterly almost motherly love for Shell, the one person who has been with her through all the horrendous times. The rivalry between Shell and all the Watchers is disturbing and never feels resolved.
There are times to this story where Anya does come across as an airhead, no pun intended. She makes several bad choices which categorizes her as too stupid to live. Although to be fair, a wacther who is constantly running in flight mode, her brain is probably broken and logic is impossible for her.
Still, she needs a few good whacks upside the head to get the brain rebooted and working again.
The Watchers Series
This book reveals a disturbing Machiavellian aspect to the dark sides. The organized one is too good to be true. An offer of a high paying job and saintcro luxurious corporate lifestyle could tempt anyone who is in a desperate situation where they cannot even meet two of their most basic needs – food and shelter. Saintcrow does a great job of creating a dilemma for a worn down woman being pulled in multiple directions. Who should she trust? And what happens when the one she trust is no good for her?
This story moved along in a hypnotic undulating pattern with peaks and valleys in just the right places.
Overall, this is a quick read and recommended to those who like themes about witches being persecuted. Feb 15, Beth rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent world building — also a clearer view of Circle Lightfall and their nature with how them allowed Jack to redeem himself. It makes their illogical choices clearer — I mean in that time period of persecution they didn’t kill their main threat. On the run, yet again, she comes to Santiago City and hopes the Dark wont follow her.
Fate leads her to the Rowangrove and the three witches who happen to be the Guardians of the City. Anya lacks self-esteem and is so timid, scared and skittish, it’s imposable to do or say anything in case she bolts.
She has a huge trust issue. Even though she has finally met women like her who swear to keep her safe and teach her about herself and men who’s whole purpose in life is to protect said women, she doesn’t really trust them and constantly expects them to be mad and throw her out.
I just want to shake her senseless and start over. Jack wasn’t much better. Typical “I don’t deserve The romance that popped up between these two, though expected, came out of nowhere and I didn’t really feel it.
The characters in the previous books were annoying, but this one topped it. I really have no interest in reading the last book in this series. Jun 17, Dr susan rated it really liked it Shelves: Jack Gray may be my favorite character in the Watcher series.
He is the ultimate Watcher; a man hoping to be redeemed for his sins by saving Lightbringers. Anya is less annoying than Mari, but she does some really stupid things. Oct 14, Kathy Davie rated it liked it Shelves: Fourth in The Watchers paranormal romance series revolving around three Guardian witches who have found their fourth. The couple focus is on Anya and Jack Grey.
My Take It’s an interesting series and this story has a twist on witch burning and the Inquisition. I do like the premise and I wish I could say the same for the characters.
They actually are decent human beings, so to speak, and I do like them once they bond with their Watchers.
