The Watchers #4.5: Dark Craving (2013)

Dark Craving

Ronan was a Tracer, he recruited boys and girls from the outside world and brought them to the Isle of Night. the boys would be trained to become Vampires one day, while the girls Watchers. these boys and girls were tough in their own way, most wouldn’t be missed when they went missing. the Directorates had been the one giving out instructions on who to abduct, and Ronan was merely their tool. however, Ronan had a second responsibility. he was also part of the secret rebellious group waiting to wage a war against the Directorate. the group was led by women, vampires older than the Directorate, who sought to return everything to the old ways.

the short novella followed Ronan instead of Annelise for a change. not a change for good, but it was equally entertaining seeing Annelise through Ronan’s eyes. it got a little dull when it came to Ronan’s past and his determination to find his original family instead of the foster one he landed with before he became a Tracer. fortunately, because of his feelings towards Annelise, he was forced to kill one of the ancient vampire just to see her. the assassination was every bit engaging and overwhelming as it could be. the moment Annelise joined in action, the fun had only just begun. the further complications and unexpected turn of event having Charlotte, Ronan’s dead older sister appeared, added a perfect topping to the very delicious treat the book turned out to be.
