Overview

From the outside, Paul Bennett appears to be an ordinary high school senior from small-town Kentucky. But Paul has a secret. He possesses an extraordinary gift which allows him to leave his body during the night and go anywhere, see anything-unseen, undetected.

Unbeknownst to Paul, he is not alone in his ability--there are others who can do what he can, and they belong to Astralis, a government agency funded by the United Nations who train people like Paul to become spies. When one of their scouts recognizes Paul for what he is, he is offered a place in the agency.

Paul makes a new life at Astralis, forging new friendships and inadvertently creating new enemies. Through the mentoring of the agency's director, Dr. Abrams, Paul finds a place where he finally feels he belongs.

Unfortunately, Astralis is an organization under siege from within. Not everyone feels Dr. Abrams is a fit director, and some are willing to do anything to make a change of leadership--even murder.

I really liked Watchers of the Night.  After the first couple of chapters, I didn't want to put it down.  I liked the main character Paul a lot.   Though he's only 18, he is the strength at the center of this book and a person easy to respect.  He has problems like most main characters, but is smart enough to think through the problems that assault him and strong enough to do what is necessary to solve challenges.  A fast read, Watchers of the Night should appeal to a broad spectrum of readers.  By the time I finished Watchers, I was  really involved with the story and the characters and now I'm anxiously waiting for the next book in the series.

The book is YA/adventure/mystery. I give this book 3 ½ out of 5 stars. The author´s imagination is wonderful, he creates a world that could or not exist, after all it is all about gathering information. The author does a stunning job of describing Astralis it seems like I am actually walking through the building and it´s passageways. There are a variety of characters each has his or her own unique abilities and characteristics, my favourite person in the book is Paul who is the main character, he is thoughtful, calm and very insightful. Paul has some interesting moments in the books with his co-workers, some positive and some negative. My favourite part is the description of Mr Paine, in the beginning, the description really formed a superb image in my mind of who Mr Paine is. There is plenty of dialogue explaining the ins and outs of the organization, this does go on a little in parts the overall it is not too much, there is plenty of mystery, which also leads you to the fact that there is a sequel. The book is aimed at a young adult audience but don´t let that put you off if you are an adult, it is a great book, a fluid read, with minimal grammatical and spelling errors, I would recommend this book and I would also read the sequel that is due out sometime in 2014.
