Visions
The Secret Watchers
by Lauren Lynne

Overview


In Visions (The Secret Watchers, Book One) fourteen-year-old Owen Ryer hates school and his life in general, but dreams that there must be something more… until he is irrevocably drawn to a watch in an old pawnshop that unlocks his amazing and unexpected gift. Now it's a race to see if Owen can master his special ability before the dark watchers destroy him or turn him to the side of evil and chaos. You will experience Owen's confusion, frustration and compassion as he discovers that it is demanding enough just to be a teenager, let alone have a secret as big as the one he is burdened with. Who should he trust? Who can help him? Typically watchers work alone but Owen is the next generation – should he be the one to challenge the rules?

Description


Welcome to the world of Owen Ryer and The Secret Watchers. Owen is given glimpses of horrible things that have happened and is driven to fix them but it's a dangerous life and he's been told he has to keep it a secret. Homework and chores are bad enough when you're in eighth grade but now this? He already hated school and now he must stand up to school bullies and even bigger ones out in the world beyond the school's doors. Now it's a race to see if Owen can master his special ability before the dark watchers destroy him or turn him to the side of evil and chaos. Everyone needs a hero and sometimes the best ones are the unintentional ones. Owen is that kind of guy as he searches for purpose, acceptance and morality. He isn't perfect, he doesn't always do things right, but he has the greater good at heart – always. You are invited to follow Owen as he journeys through the darkest walk he has ever taken; where he captures images of the underbelly of society, a place he never knew existed and didn't want to see. After you read Visions, will you be looking under your bed and double checking your closet? Please enter the Secret Watchers universe if you dare but beware – you may be sucked right into the good versus evil suspense of jaw-clenching action and never want to leave.

About the author


I'm author Lauren Lynne. The good side of growing up is that you can write whatever you want. The down side... Now I can't read it without my glasses! I wanted to stay close to my roots in education so I chose to write for the age group I love to teach. I sat down with my teenage boys and began brainstorming, based on some of our favorite characters from literature, film and television. Since I'm drawn to all things action-adventure, this particular genre was a natural fit. You won't find me bungee jumping, cliff diving or doing parkour because well... I'm a klutz… so I write it. I created a character who is much braver, tougher, more graceful and athletic than I am. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, with its vivid and varied panoramas. When I'm not writing, I can be found spending time with my family, working with students, reading, gardening or hiking around Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge or the Oregon Coast with my camera. I am also a graduate of both Oregon State and Portland State universities with degrees in education. Writing is my passion and I want to share my love of it and reading with you.
