I’ve been a sci-fi/fantasy reader since my teens and The Watched was a refreshing take on an old theme. The world Hall-Wilson creates is as real as C.S. Lewis’s Narnia, J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth or Stephen R. Donaldson’s The Land. From the first paragraph the reader is immediately transported into Hall-Wilson’s world and is riveted by the events which unfolds...The result is well-worth reading.
The Watched is a brilliant tale of spiritual battles. Mrs. Hall-Wilson has given us strong characters and vivid imagery in this masterful story. The plot is strong and keeps you turning the pages wanting to know what happens next.
I can't wait to read more from this amazing author. I give The Watched five swords. It's one battle you'll want to be fighting!
There were so many good lines and strong images in [The Watched]. The pacing was relentless and kept me reading, the characters felt consistent and real, and I enjoyed watching the relationships between the two men and the two daughters.
