My Thoughts

*ARC received for an honest review

Spectacular finale, full of heart-stopping action and page melting romance. Veronica, with her conclusion of The Watchers series, has once again succeeded in taking her readers to a journey they will never want to return from. 
                          Reading the final book of a series is bittersweet and you expect the right ending of the characters who have taken over your mind, heart and and what's left of your world. Veronica did just that and so much more! 

"I think he must've sensed the rest, though, because by the time I had finished talking, he had a wicked glint in his eyes. "So, in your dream, I touched you?" I was used to wicked glints from Carden. But from Ronan? I was practically undone."

            Reckoning continues from where ' The Keep' ended. Drew's ( Annelise)  world is shaken by the knowledge that her mother is alive and the confusion of her feelings toward her Vampire, Carden and her protector and maybe the only friend she has, Ronan is not helping the situation. Ties get tethered, trust are broken and everything that once she believed was true becomes the opposite. Reckoning displays the gradual growth of Drew, a lost teenager from 'Isle of Night' to the determined strong warrior/ women she becomes at the end of the Watchers series. The humerous quirky monologues of Drew and the intense numerous scenes in the book leaves the reader with a belly-holding laughs and heartbroken tears. 

"A gloved hand grabbed me as Carden shoved at my  butt, and I toppled like a dead fish into the belly of the boat. A pair of eyes stared at me from beneath a wool fisherman's cap. "Can't say I won't be pleased to see your backside, lass." Did Tom the Draug Keeper just make a comment about my backside?"

    Reckoning is definitely going to own its readers and leave them with a smile on their face while capturing a permanent place in their heart. And don't forget, it also tells who Annelise ends up with.... the scottish vampire, Carden? or the mysterious intense seductive, Ronan? Which team you are on?

Is life offering fewer and fewer options? Then join the dead.
When Annelise meets dark and seductive Ronan, he promises her a new life-if she has the courage to chance the unknown. Now, she's whisked away to a mysterious island and pitted against other female recruits to become a Watcher-girls who are partnered with vampires and assist them in their missions. To survive and become a Watcher, Annelise has to beat out every other girl, but she's determined to do so, because to fail doesn't mean dishonor-it means death.

Read an Excerpt

"I'll take you someplace very far away" Rona voice was subdued, and it came out as a rasp. "Far from your father. Far from people who don't understand you."
He touched a nerve...... and it made some delicious, dangerous sensation shiver inside me.
He toyed with the hair at the nape of my neck, and again I felt that buzz of electricity shimmer across my skin. He gave me a little half smile, "But will you have the courage?" 
"Yes", I heard myself whisper."Yes I will."
As I opened my eyes, he pulled away from me, and cold clarity prickled my brain like blood returning to a numbed limb.
I watched Ronan as he studied his fisted hands.His muscles were tensed and his eyes looked fierce, making me suddenly uneasy...
"Where are we going?"
He stared blindly out the window, resting his hand on the steering wheel. "Far away. Life as you know will change utterly."
