Item description for Cloud Watcher (The Watcher Series, Book 4) by Lilith Saintcrow...
Anya Harris's talents have made her a refugee, flying from city to city ahead of a tide of burning terror nobody else can see. She's hoping Santiago City will be safe-but deep in her heart of hearts, she knows nowhere is safe enough for someone with her secrets. When the gray-eyed man with guns and a sword shows up, claiming to be sent to protect her, Anya has to believe him. After all, she has nowhere else to go. Jack Gray is one of the oldest Watchers around, scarred by the battle between Circle Lightfall and the Crusade. He's found his witch and nothing is going to get in the way of protecting her. But nothing is as simple as it looks. Anya's talent makes her worth millions, if she's delivered alive and broken to the corporate bidders. Jack's the only one who can save her-but when she finds out who he really is, he might lose her for good.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cloud Watcher (The Watcher Series, Book 4)?
Storm Watcher Mar 20, 2007
I just received Cloud Watcher and haven't started it yet. If it is anything like her first 2 of the series it has to be great. The Watchers are yummy and the heroines are very independent and show a lot of courage. I have also enjoyed her Society series and am looking forward to more of them. I have introduced my 3 daughters to Ms. Saintcrow and they have enjoyed her too.
Please keep up the fantastic work and look forward to many more to come.
Missing something... Feb 8, 2007
I recently stumbled upon this author when I was in my local bookstore. This series has been amazing so far, but this book seemed to be missing something that the other three books had. Don't get me wrong, I still highly enjoyed the story, but the vibe was off.
Ms. Saintcrow is a master of urban fantasy.... Dec 30, 2006
Anya Harris has been fleeing from city to city, trying to avoid the Dark that wants to destroy her. Anya is a Lightbringer but is unaware of her heritage. She only knows she has the talent of Persuasion. Accompanied by Shell Garritson, she arrives in Santiago City to find a haven among the three Guardians (see DARK WATCHER, STORM WATCHER, and FIRE WATCHER for their stories) only to meet Watcher Jack Gray. Jack knows instantly that he's found his witch in Anya, the only Lightbringer whose touch doesn't hurt him, but he has a dark secret. Will his secret destroy them as the Brotherhood once again threatens the sanctuary of Santiago City?
CLOUD WATCHER is the fourth book in the phenomenal series about the Watchers and the Lightbringers and continues the same excellence exhibited in all three previous books. While CLOUD WATCHER contains enough information to be a stand alone novel, readers will appreciate the world Ms. Saintcrow has created far more if the series is read in order.
Lilith Saintcrow is without a doubt one of the top writers of urban fantasy today. Her crisp prose and taut plotlines are carefully crafted for maximum impact. Her vividly drawn characters are so realistic this reviewer feels as if she is visiting old friends whenever characters from previous books reappear. Jack is perhaps the darkest character yet in this series, as his secret is a horrible one. However, Ms. Saintcrow uses his love and caring for Anya to allow the goodness that is his core to shine through.
CLOUD WATCHER is a spectacular addition to the Watcher series. Readers are in for a treat with this one as Lilith Saintcrow produces yet another superb story. Lilith Saintcrow truly is a master in the urban fantasy genre!

excellent romantic fantasy Dec 24, 2006
Anya Harris feels all alone in the world as she flees the Dark fires that no one else seems to see. Her only companion as she runs from "the persuasion" is Shell, who depends on her for his well-being as he apparently is a "downs syndrome" person.
In Santiago City, she knows she needs a job that will enable her to also keep Shell safe. Instead she meets Watcher Jack Gray, whose centuries of dedication to Circle Lightfall may not redeem him for the atrocities he committed. Jack realizes she is the witch who he has waited seemingly forever to come into his life. He must protect her and her ward with his heart and soul as the Dark has followed her here. Used to having no one protect her back or someone steal her heart, Anya rejects his efforts to keep her safe; still her presence gives him some hope of redemption for the evil he did before he became a Watcher.
The Lilith Saintcrow "Watcher' romantic fantasy (see DARK WATCHER, STORM WATCHER, and FIRE WATCHER) is a terrific tale starring two interesting protagonists. Anya trusts no on except Shell who is almost totally dependent on her. Jack has waited forever for his soulmate to bewitch him so has begun to lose faith that he will ever meet her. When they do meet both are stunned, but he knows he first needs to keep her safe because her skills make her special and worth millions, but to do that he also must protect Shell. CLOUD WATCHER is a strong entry in a terrific series.
Fourth book in the Watcher series Nov 17, 2006
I have enjoyed all the other books in this series and this one is no different. I liked the idea of a woman who doesn't know she is a witch and because of the things she sees she doubts her sanity.
Anya is running before the fires of the Dark. She does not know she is a witch and she is afraid of what she calls "the persuation". Somewhere along the way she has picked up an older boy, Shell, with what sounds like "downs syndrome". She takes care of Shell and he depends on her. They barely escaped the last time. With very little money or possessions she needs a job. Preferrably somewhere she will still be able to keep an eye on Shell.
Jack Gray is one of the oldest Watchers. He has never found his witch in all these many years and he doubts he ever will. Even if he does, his burden of guilt, tells him she will never accept him. He hopes that the hundreds of yrs he has served Circle Lightfall, many give him some hope of redemption for the evil he did before he became a Watcher.
We learn more about the Watchers and about the beginnings of Circle Lightfall and the Crusade. Although her devotion to Shell is admirable, we also see his need to have and control Anya. Anya has had no help and protection, she has had to fight the Dark alone for too long. She has troubling accepting Jack, for who and what he is. She also has trouble accepting who and what she is.
The Dark has chased her here, and now she is vulnerable to their intrigues. Jack has to convince her she must let him protect her, because her power and abilities are worth a fortune to others, and the Dark and the Crusade will never let her live if they can kill her.
I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to more. Lilith Saintcrow is very talented at creating wonderful and unusual worlds. So far every one has been a keeper.
