Before the Bible, there was Book of Watchers

Enoch wants to live an ordinary life. He’s content to lie low, skip his college classes, and avoid committing to any one girl. But ordinary isn’t on the syllabus for Enoch because at night, he dreams of demons. Vivid dreams that leave him wanting escape more than ever. When they escape his dreams and attack him during daylight, his reality becomes a nightmare. 

As he pieces together the meaning behind the encounters, supernatural creatures emerge. Demons. Vampires. Witches. Angels. And they all want something from him. In a supernatural world he never thought possible, Enoch uncovers a secret that either will destroy him or force him to become much more than he ever wanted.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

Whoa!! Oh Mary... Why do you do this to me?!?! You make fall in love with your stories. Book of Watchers is the latest story that I completely loved from beginning to end. This had elements of suspense, mystery, action, and horror in which was well balanced in creating the right atmosphere that kept me at the "edge of my seat." Every element balanced out the story giving me all the chills, the questions, the feels that kept me turning the pages.

The way Mary can create these incredibly vivid descriptions of a world full of the supernatural transported me into this imaginative world of hers. It was dark and intense, but yet, it will tug on your heart-strings. As for all her characters, each with their own personalities and emotional baggage that felt so real. The way she describes her characters, brought them out vividly in my imagination.

As for the story, I loved it! A combination of the various genres I enjoy reading, Mary effortlessly weaved these genres into a flowing story that drew me in to these characters lives and the secrets they hold. There are a good amount of secrets there, too. It is definitely something that will make you go... "Hmmm...🤔." The twists that Mary embedded throughout the story made for a good mystery, too. As secrets were unraveled, more secrets started to reveal itself as well. But then, at the end.... Really, Mary!!??!! Wow... That was subtle... 😄 A cliffhanger?!? Ugh!!! Wow! That "threw me for a loop." This cliffhanger was not a "slap in your face" kind of cliffhanger. It was more like a slow burn until you got to the fire... 😄 Ugh! Now, I really, really NEED book 2 to find out what other secrets that need to be told. Gah!!! 😡 Thanks a lot, Mary!!! 😋
