Strangers become allies. Lovers become enemies. And a destiny formed before birth unfolds.
Sawyer spent most of her life hunting the very thing she has now become. No longer the Watcher she once was, Sawyer struggles to make sense of her new identity. Though she now has the powers of a Carbon, she is also tied to the control Coleman has over all of his creations.
Desperate for help and answers, Sawyer travels to the United Isles with Max in search of an ally. Not only must she learn to harness her new abilities, she must find a way to mend a broken heart…if her past doesn’t kill her first.
The epic journey continues, and the war for the human race draws ever closer. Join the resistance in the next chapter of the Watcher Series.
AJ Eversley is the author of the WATCHER series. A true north Canadian girl, AJ currently lives in Central Alberta with her husband and dog. When she’s not writing, she can be found binge watching Harry Potter, quoting various movies in every day conversation, and eating copious amounts of candy.
Chelsea Stephens has a long time love and appreciation for the performing arts, with experience in on-stage acting, singing and voice over. Her love for reading books and the pursuit of the story led her to narration. She enjoys unfolding characters and bringing listeners into new worlds. Chelsea is an experienced voice actor with a talent for mystery, fantasy and YA novels. She’s a mom to a gaggle of young ones living in the Midwest with her lumbersexual husband.
My first priority as a voice-over artist is to convey your thoughts and ideas in an entertaining and insightful manner; not distracting from your message, but enhancing your words. It is my personal goal to help your audience engage with the text in an immersive and memorable way.
As a techie with a passion for performance and a love of the written word, the voice-over industry called to me. I am now fortunate enough to be living my dream of audiobook narration from my home studio, in Calgary, AB, Canada.
Cold sweat rolled over my body as I watched, over and over again as he died. The scene replayed in my memory like a broken record, and no matter how many times I tried to will my body to move, I was stationary. Stuck in the same spot, watching the man I loved die repeatedly. This was the same dream that haunted me most nights. Sometimes the image felt so real I’d wake up screaming his name, but it made no difference. He never came back, and I never saved him.
If your streets and the buildings around you were all empty, how would you react? It would be quite lonely, one would imagine–if you were one of the only humans left, fighting against robots for the survival of the human species? That is a lot of pressure for one person to have. Eversley continues this journey into a new world, one of science fiction and adventure which will pull readers in quickly and keep them hanging on every detail.
Leaving the world that she knew—the place that she called home—without the love of her life or any hope of surviving the carbon army waiting for their moment to strike. That sounds awful, but for Sawyer, this world is just hopeless. She is no longer human. She is alone in the world and still looked at as the savior of the human race. As her journey leads Sawyer and the remaining survivors to the United Isles, she slowly starts to piece together bits of herself. Unfortunately, Coleman is not yet finished toying with her—sending an unexpected visitor to destroy what is left of her sanity and diminish the fight left in her. With little to no expectations of winning this war, a beacon of light by way of a child princess and a cloaked elderly woman shed some insight into her destiny. Even if it is a tiny glimpse, Sawyer understands that her mission is not over and she also learns Coleman’s secret to his possible destruction.
Eversley has a superb story-line, filled with creativity, world-building, and originality. We’ve all heard and seen science fiction novels and movies, but Eversley brings a new twist to the fold. The pace is quick and steady from the beginning and carries through the entirety of the story. She provides that urgency to understand the depth of extinction the human race faces. Since this review compliments the audiobook, both narrators did fantastic work with voice relay. The scenes were vivid for the imagination and characters were credible. This is the second installment in the Watcher Series, so it is recommended that readers do read or listen through the first installment before diving into the second one. If you are interested in action and science fiction, this may a perfect fit.
