The Watchers, Book 5

A first impression is all it took to fill Tank’s nights with dreams of a beautiful woman caressing piano keys with long, graceful fingers. And to throw his level head completely off-bubble. Then the music vanishes, replaced by the woman’s frantic pleas for help.

Dreams clash with reality when a Watcher mission leads Tank into a musty, rat-infested basement where he finds his piano lady broken and bleeding from a Rogue attack—and suffering the beginnings of the change.

Music is Sonya Brown’s salvation, and her job teaching students to overcome their blindness—just like her—is a perfect fit. At least it was, until a new co-worker’s unwelcome advances cross over into an obsession that rips away everything she holds dear.

She awakens frightened. Confused. Somehow…different. But not alone. Gentle hands tend her wounds, feed a strange, new hunger. And build an inner fire she’s never before known.

Keeping Sonya safe from the Rogue who would fully claim her is only half of Tank’s battle. Sonya must accept her new life, or his dream will become only a memory.

When silver eyes meet milky white irises lives are changed.

Although Sonya is blind she does not let her disability control her. If anything it has made her a much stronger person. So when faced with danger she meets it head on and not only tries to protect herself but also others involved. Sonya gives all women something to aspire to. I wish I could be half as courageous as she is. Now she just hopes that Tank will see past her blindness to the woman behind the exotic eyes.

Tank has been the leader of his cell for years and rightfully so. Part of what makes him a good leader is his ability to keep a clear head no matter what the danger. That was until he started having strange dreams about Sonya. I like that Tank loses his cool over this woman - that shows he really cares. Every man has lost his head over love and Tank is no exception. And what a girl wouldn’t do to hear that rich Nigerian accent whisper in her ear. Sonya may cause him to lose his cool but he seems to have the same effect on her.

The conflict between David and Sonya is epic. He was truly one sick individual and deserved everything Tank was going to give him. It was clear he was mentally disturbed as a vampire and I am sure he was as a human as well. With his sick twisted mind at work Sonya and readers were in for one bumpy ride that left both her and me on the edge of our seats.

The plot development in this story was spot on and I would not have changed one thing about it. I love that Tank and Sonya both want the same thing but seem to tiptoe around each other and do not realize their mutual attraction. I also love the fact the other watchers clearly see the emotions better than Sonya and Tank see themselves.

This is another story that is part of a series but could be read as an individual story. If you have read the previous stories you will enjoy seeing many of the old couples. If you are new the series, do not worry, you will feel right at home with this group of vampires. I know I do!
