Review: Visions: The Secret Watchers Book One by Lauren Lynne

January 6, 2015

I’ve been meaning to put a few reviews on my blog…

 

Visions: The Secret Watchers Book One by Lauren Lynne

Blurb:

Welcome to the world of Owen Ryer and The Secret Watchers. Owen is given glimpses of horrible things that have happened and is driven to fix them but it’s a dangerous life and he’s been told he has to keep it a secret. Homework and chores are bad enough when you’re in eighth grade but now this? He already hated school and now he must stand up to school bullies and even bigger ones out in the world beyond the school’s doors. Now it’s a race to see if Owen can master his special ability before the dark watchers destroy him or turn him to the side of evil and chaos.
Everyone needs a hero and sometimes the best ones are the unintentional ones. Owen is that kind of guy as he searches for purpose, acceptance and morality. He isn’t perfect, he doesn’t always do things right, but he has the greater good at heart – always.
You are invited to follow Owen as he journeys through the darkest walk he has ever taken; where he captures images of the underbelly of society, a place he never knew existed and didn’t want to see. After you read Visions, will you be looking under your bed and double checking your closet? Please enter the Secret Watchers universe if you dare but beware – you may be sucked right into the good versus evil suspense of jaw-clenching action and never want to leave.

 

My review:

Visions, The Secret Watchers (Book One). This is such a wonderfully fun story focusing on Owen, a young man coming to terms with the sudden discovery of his true calling, it follows his discovery of his ability and the training he undertakes to control it, this book also establishes his rocky relationship with his friends, family and his lovelife making for a thoroughly enjoyable read. Lauren has done a wonderful job with this novel – the first in a series. I sure will be buying the rest, Lauren’s descriptions of Owen’s family life are some of the best parts of this story. Owen is a likeable young man who is a great role model for young boys! I would recommend this book for any boy or girl who enjoys coming of age stories (or fun adventures – and will be encouraging my nephews to read them too).

Owen’s views on family, friends, girls and of course the adults in his life are relatable and honourable. This story is also simply a fun read full of action and mystery as Owen gets in over his head while trying to control his new life and get through school!

I’m glad I gave it a go!
