When Annelise meets dark and seductive Ronan, he promises her a new life-if she has the courage to chance the unknown. Now, she's whisked away to a mysterious island and pitted against other female recruits to become a Watcher-girls who are partnered with vampires and assist them in their missions. To survive and become a Watcher, Annelise has to beat out every other girl, but she's determined to do so, because to fail doesn't mean dishonor-it means death.
Annelise is a genius, but her life is a living hell. Finally her brain has given her an out and she'll be starting college a semester early. When a turn makes all Annelise's plans go down the drain, she is enticed by a seductive man into leaving all she knows and what little she has behind. Annelise was immediately a likeable character. She was funny and loud and shy, all at the same time. She's a little thing with a big IQ and an even bigger will. A will that helped her come out on top in the first book of this series. Ronan is a tracker and the one who persuades her to follow him to an unknown island. He is also her kinda love interest. I can't honestly say how I feel about him yet because he wasn't around much in the book. He seemed like he had potential.
Unfortunately, life on the island isn't a cup of tea. There is a big twist that surprised me, but might be obvious to others. There were also fighting matches to the death and a strong opponent that Annelise had to face down. Through all these trials, Annelise succeeded and won. Ending the book with a satisfying smackdown and an even better chance at escape.
