Review of The Watcher by Lisa Voisin


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.


  I thought this book was unique.  I liked the concept.  They wrapped redemption, love and evil all up in one pretty package.  The choice between good and evil is not as easy when the lines are blurred. 

This book surprised me from the beginning to the end.  It didn't keep me on the edge of my seat the whole way through it, but it was a steady read.  The twists and turns were enjoyable and I liked watching Mia's life unfold as well as Michael's. 

Mia was a good character, but I really liked Michael's the best.  I felt that even though Mia was the main character, Michael was the one with the growth.  He starts out seeking redemption in the beginning and transforms throughout the pages.  I even enjoyed Damiel's character.  He was everything I was expecting.
There was a lot about this story that was good and original.  I don't want to give the twists and turns away, so I suggest you pick this four glittery star read up for yourself!
