“You failed…Senator,” the robed man on the right, who appeared to be the leader, said. “What… to impress on you the absolute …of a favorable result in this matter? The news…tell only of …death of the bill…told you had the votes.” I had to concentrate on their mouths to help make out the heavily accented words and the man’s large crooked nose kept distracting me, twitching every time he started a new sentence. “We do!” the Senator said. “…them… bill will pass.” “…not want all this attention…it. ..late,” the robed man on the right continued. “No, No!” stammered the man next to the Senator louder than the others. “You’ll see. We have won.” “…nothing!” The robed man on the right, said. With those words, another guard, standing behind the Senator, raised his arms into the air. Only then did I realize that instead of a gun, his hands were wrapped around a long, thick shiny sword. The light reflected harshly off it. With a loud “Arhhhh!” the robed man whipped the sword through the air and through the neck of the man sitting next to Senator Randolph.

What would you do if you had been a witness to a gruesome murder? What would you do if you felt that the people responsible had eyes on you at all times? Everywhere you turned, everywhere you looked, and every time you spoke…they knew what you were saying? Hogan has an invigorating and suspenseful young adult thriller which will have the reader enticed to learn more about the heroine, Christy and the band of students in which she travels with.

Being a political venture, Christy is young and very trusting. This new scholarship that she has won will allow her to make changes in her life. She does have some bravery, but it all flees upon arriving in a new area with other students who do not know her very well. During this adventure in her life, she does make a numerous amount of mistakes, but one mistake could cost her life and the lives of the group of students accompanying her. Upon stumbling into a well-guarded hotel, making a run for the restrooms, she gets this eerie feeling of possibly been watched. After hearing some voices, she decides to investigate. Thinking that she would find a camera of some perverse way in the stall, she looks through the vents and finds herself fascinated by the suspicious discussion being held in the adjoining ballroom. One thing leads to another and before Christy knows anything is awry, blood has been spilled and one man has been beheaded. Fleeing the bathroom undetected becomes her and her group’s utmost importance, but after the escape…Christy still has an uncertain sense of being watched. What can Christy do to prevent her group from further danger?

Hogan has a great plot, one filled with excitement, entertainment and suspense. The character development is a bit under developed, but these are teenagers after all. This review is complimenting the audiobook. The pace was absolutely terrific; it was fast-paced and the narrator was a great fit. She changed pitch and vocalization for every character and added sounds for special effect. There were little to no errors that could be heard within this audiobook, which will make it that much more enjoyable for the reader. If you are a reader of young adult suspense and mystery, you may want to pick this one up. Since this is the first installment in the Watched Trilogy, you are able to jump right on in.

The premise of this book was interesting. A group of teenage students witness a high profile murder while on a school trip to Washington D.C. I think it could have been very intriguing, but somehow the story fell short. For instance, none of the students considered notifying any of their adult chaperones of what they'd seen, which was really strange IMO. I also found it difficult to believe how the FBI handled the protection of the witnesses. There seemed to be a lack of common sense in how things were handled, that made it difficult for me to suspend belief and enjoy the story.

I was also disappointed in the weakness of Christy, the heroine. A lovely, intelligent girl, but almost completely crippled with insecurity 98% of the time. It would have been nice to have seen her have more confidence, or at least grow into more confidence during the course of the story. It disappointed me that she seemed to base so much of her self worth on the attention of two boys (Alex and Rick) she was attracted too. She did have a moment where she re-defined her core christian values. I was glad to see her finally decide that the values she had been raised with were best for her, and voice it to one of the boys, Rick.

I also didn't care for how horrible Summer, one of the other female students, behaved towards her. I kept hoping to see this character realize how wrong her attitude was, and it never happened. She never grew past being an incredibly self-centered snob and bully. Worse yet, no one really called her on it either. An opportunity for a good message seemed to be lost there.

An OK read, but it could have been much better.

I read this book on the plane on my way home from Idaho and was drawn into Christy's story world hook line and sinker. I was not finished when we got home at midnight and had to make myself to bed. But the next morning I had to finish the story before I could even think about unpacking. I also purchased the rest of the series. And I read them both yesterday. I hope to get back into the real world today. By the way...I believe this is classified as YA. Makes me smile. I am 72 years young. I plan to read more books by this author.

This is an edge-of-the seat suspense story and though fictional it deals with totally real-life events happening today. Christy goes on a field trip with a bunch of other teens that goes horribly wrong. First, she and some of her friends accidentally witness a murder, but that's just beginning of this story. You need to read it to find out what else happens. It's also inspirational, I want to read Book 2 in this series, to find out what happens next. I recommend it! Watched (The Watched Series Book 1)
