What the reviewers are saying about The Watcher:
…I really enjoyed the book ~ In fact it was extremely powerful and moving (I’ll even add one of the most creative fictitious stories I’ve read this year!)
…a good story about overcoming fear and moving forward with life. I would recommend it.
Sara Davison’s (or is it the watcher’s?) voice is fresh and vivid, with strong descriptive skills. This debut Canadian author is worth checking out. Janet Sketchley
This book is really interesting, because it’s narrated by a “person/thing” that you have no idea who it is. I guessed numerous times and each time I was wrong, it’s not until the very end you get to know who it is.

I’m not going to tell you who The Watcher is, as it would spoil it, but let me say this – kudos to the author for such a unique telling of a story!

This is a definite thriller, which all mystery lovers should read. All I can say is WOW- I never knew what would be around the corner!!
… by the time I was halfway through, I was more than hooked, and ended up losing sleep in my need to know the outcome. Read more …
This book will keep you entranced from the moment you start reading. Maranatha Newspaper
Davison’s action scenes are dynamite. She knows how to ratchet up the tension (of which there is plenty) and how to relax us and put us off our guard… Violet Nesdoly
There are few fiction authors who can hold my attention completely. Too often I find myself picking out the snippets where they told the story rather than showed it, or where they have settled for redundancy, or where they have taken a shortcut to get to the end of the story. Then there are the handful of fiction authors who grab my imagination from the first page and don’t let go until I have read the final word. Author Sara Davison is one of those writers. Donna Dawson
The greatest strength of this novel is its narrative voice. Davison and her narrator are utterly confident, even masterful. The narrator speaks directly to the reader and his or her identity is not known until the last page. While the story moves back and forth in time over a twenty year period, this is done with tremendous skill, allowing for a slow reveal of a devastating story.
I was reminded at times of the novel that was popular a year or two ago, The Shack in both the subject matter and the themes of grace and forgiveness, but I also saw elements that reminded me of John Bunyan, CS Lewis and more. At the same time, this is a contemporary, Canadian suspense novel with a mystery and a thriller dimension to it.
What Reviewers are saying about The End Begins, Book 1 in The Seven Trilogy:
From RT Book Reviews (41/2 stars, a Top Pick)
The first book in Davison’s Seven trilogy grips the reader from page one and holds on until the very end. Meryn O’Reilly is a believable character, and — though dreadful — the story is plausible. The events unfold in a forward-moving way that allows readers to sympathize with Meryn and Jesse and understand the dilemmas they face. Thought-provoking, relevant and suspenseful, The End Begins is a must-read. – See more at: http://www.rtbookreviews.com/book-review/end-begins
