All of her life, Dancia Lewis has wanted to use her powers for good. And now that she's learned the truth about Delcroix Academy-and herself-she may just get the chance. But being part of Delcroix's top secret Program isn't anything like Dancia expected. She has to ask herself: what happens to the Talented kids who refuse to pledge their loyalty to the Program? And why did her friend Jack run away rather than join? Dancia's adorable boyfriend Cam insists they need the help of every Talented student to defend Delcroix from dangerous enemies outside their gates. But Dancia has to wonder: what if Delcroix's most frightening enemies come from within?show more

Having the opportunity in reading this sequel gave me such elation that I heard a choir burst into song, birds chirping, and I KNEW then the meaning of life! Okay, not so much the last part, but I was really excited in getting back into the story of Dancia. The Watchers jumps right back into where 'The Candidates' Book #1 left off. Inara Scott introduces more characters and explores in depth with the relationship of Dancia and Cam. I so wanted Jack for her. But while you read further into the story you'll be surprised by not rooting for either hottie (Jack/Cam) because a new guy comes along. My feelings were confused with Barrett though because he is a great guy, but at times he acted more like a big brother looking out for Dancia than a guy who is interested in becoming more than friends. This time around 'The Watchers' has more twists, action, added scenes away from the school, and the characters who you thought you knew from the beginning, end up having you see them in a new light. And you can take that statement both in the positive and negative way. Dancia grows up tremendously, but maintains her modesty with her powers. Which still makes her my favorite character cause of it. She's grown to be more vocal and exercises her powers more freely than before. I cried at least once or twice and I am not ashamed in admitting it! Once again, Inara Scott has reeled in another fan. The Delcroix Academy series has become one of my favorites and I can surely say I will take part in the masses who will be setting up lawn chairs in the ticket lines if ever this series becomes a movie!show more
