Shani's review of Watchers of the Night by Matthew Keith

Book Review of -- Watchers of the Night by Matthew Keith  

My overall star rating --- 5        

About the book:
From the outside, Paul Bennett appears to be an ordinary high school senior from small-town Kentucky. But Paul has a secret. He possesses an extraordinary gift which allows him to leave his body during the night and go anywhere, see anything—unseen, undetected.

Unbeknownst to Paul, he is not alone in his ability--there are others who can do what he can, and they belong to Astralis, a government agency funded by the United Nations who train people like Paul to become spies. When one of their scouts recognizes Paul for what he is, he is offered a place in the agency.

Paul makes a new life at Astralis, forging new friendships and inadvertently creating new enemies. Through the mentoring of the agency's director, Dr. Abrams, Paul finds a place where he finally feels he belongs.

Unfortunately, Astralis is an organization under siege from within. Not everyone feels Dr. Abrams is a fit director, and some are willing to do anything to make a change of leadership--even murder.

Watchers of the Night is the first novel of the Watchers Trilogy, and ends with a cliff-hanger. You WILL be left with questions at the conclusion of this novel.

The review --
I loved the concept of mental powers. Wasn't boring, unlike most within same genre and idea. Action packed from beginning to end. I liked the world the author created, and found it to be rather interesting. The ending........... I WANT MORE, lol. Now that's a way to hook-line a person.
