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.
The characters were another weakness, in my opinion, but not a huge one. Annelise (Drew) is a bit whiny at times and for someone so smart she sure does some stupid things. She does get better as the book goes on and by the end she is very intense and kick-ass. (Also kind of crazy.) Ronan was very aloof and mysterious. He was sexy but his reasons for being on the Isle of Night needed to be explained. Emma was a very one dimensional character who I never understood as was Josh. Yasuo was the only one with any real personality or depth. I think all the characters need to be developed more in the following books.
Overall, Isle of Night is a promising start to The Watchers series. If you are looking for a new take on vampires I would definitely recommend checking out this series.
