Owen Ryer thought he was normal. He thought his life was boring. A walk into a pawnshop in eighth grade showed him that his life was a lie. Two years later Owen has accepted how far from normal he really is. He has a special gift, granting him the ability to see dark energy in the objects around him. Now he’s part of a secret society where people like himself help others and fight the dark watchers who want them for their powers.
Owen has discovered that a Secret Watcher does not have to live his life alone. He knows that he can expand his powers by working with other watchers but what will the price be? Darkness is growing and evil thinks it has found its new prince in Owen. They will stop at nothing to get to him even if it means kidnapping, mind-control or murder.
Owen must do more than fight; he must use his wits and every ability he has at his disposal to hold the growing darkness at bay. Who knew high school could be more challenging than football, homework and relationships? The dark side knows… and they’re watching.

Owen and his loyal friends and family are always there for him. Owen is maturing, and learning hard lessons as he grows up. Being a secret watcher is now part of who he is, very second nature, and he has all the support he needs. This book makes you want to be there for him too. Its an all encompassing story, that is hard to put down!
Insights: I'm breathless! This is the best in the series so far and its only the third with two more to come. I can hardly wait for book 4. The action is heating up as is the romance between Owen and Lucie. I love the deft way Lauren handles the emotions of these teens and still keeps things fun and yet suspenseful. Then there's Kreaghton... what is he up to now? Is he acting alone or is he still under Evilia's spell??? I wonder which of these dark forces wants Owen more.
For those of you who are already fans of Owen Ryer, his family and friends, all I can say is that “Insights” is the must read next adventure. If you are new to Owen’s world you simply must read books one and two first, if only to get the most out of the intricate and terrific world of The Secret Watchers that Lauren Lynne has created. A layered and complex world with something new always on the horizon. Insights: The Secret Watchers Book Three is a time of development and discovery for main character Owen. Owen is working hard to develop his own powers and abilities while working with and training his friend and family. Dark Watchers abound so Owen and his family must remain ever vigilant. Owen’s circle of Watchers is ever increasing in response to the growing dark watcher threat, leading Owen to make some startling discoveries about his own abilities and those around him. He also must deal with family issues, romance issues, school and protecting his friends all of which leaves Owen stretched thin He then finds himself confronted with the Darkest of Watchers the evil Madam Maldava who wants to make Owen her own. And what is happening with his brother Alex? I love this world Lauren Lynne has created. Owen is the perfect role model for all young men and teenagers. Responsible, dedicated, caring and protective Owen must battle inner and outer demons over a destiny that threatens to tear his whole world apart. Insights is a terrific read and I thoroughly recommend it to all levels of readers. Adults and teenagers alike. I definitely want my nephews to read this series! I can’t wait to start book four
As time goes by, I love Owen Ryer more and more. He is a hero you can believe in, even though he doesn't realize he is one. I would hate to think there are dark watchers out there but I wish there were people like Owen!
I believe this is my new favorite author. She can really capture a character and express how they feel. These books make me feel like a kid again. I'm telling everyone about them!
