Item Description...
Just below the surface among the family of God lives another family tree--one traced in spirit, invisible and ageless, known as the Watchers. For two thousand years they've seen beyond the veil separating this world from the next, passing on their gift through a lineage mostly overlooked. Throughout history they've scouted the borders of the supernatural frontier, but now their survival hangs by a thread. And their fate lies in the hands of a young woman, her would-be killer, and a mystery they must solve....

"Congratulations. You just reached my own little corner of cyberspace.
Who am I?
Abby Sherman, that's who.
Who are you? And why are you checking me out?
Drop me a few pixels, and let's find out!"

With that innocent invitation, Abby Sherman unwittingly steps in the crosshairs of history, and thus begins her harrowing tale--taking her from ocean-front Malibu to the streets of London, the jungles in West Africa, the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and to the very gates of heaven itself!

A sneak preview of eternity becomes her one-way ticket to danger?and discovery?.

Two lives collide in a globe-circling adventure involving both peril and discovery: Abby, a young woman whose visions of heaven turn her into a Web-celebrity; and Dylan, a troubled young man sent by an ancient foe to silence her. From California beachfronts to Nigerian rain forests to Jerusalem and back again, The Watchers is high-octane blends of action, mystery, and spiritual battle spanning centuries.

A woman's awe-inspiring vision launches her on a quest through distant lands and ancient history, face-to-face with eternity and into the arms of a family line on the brink of annihilation...

A man who is hired to exterminate her discovers the folly of blind loyalty, then learns how to wage war in a realm he never believed had existed...

An extraordinary saga of the unseen war against evil, the reality of the supernatural, and the transforming power of forgiveness

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great potential but theologically heavy--3.5 Stars  Feb 10, 2008
The Brotherhood is upset--really upset. They want Abby Sherman dead and they want her dead yesterday. But what threat does she pose to the world? Dylan Hatfield prides himself on eliminating the really bad people of this world. Only those that everyone would want dead. So when asked to kill Abby, a seemingly harmless girl, whose only offense seems to have been a really weird dream, his conscience and beliefs are put to the test. Can he really kill this girl and should he?

I had mixed feelings about The Assignment, so it took me a long time to commit to reading this 400+ page novel. I have mixed feelings about this one as well. The story is good, somewhat original (reminded me a lot of This Present Darkness), and interesting. However, it's very bogged down in theology and teaching. It's frustrating because the actual story is really good, but the characters are flat because of the Biblical teaching. They have no opportunity to be anyone other than what they're teaching. Their predictability makes them unbelievable.

It felt like ½ the book was theological teachings, dialogues, plan of salvation, lectures on Christian living, etc. It really became tiring. I felt like I was reading `How to be saved' and `How to live a Christian life' rather than a Christian fiction suspense book. I know not everyone reads for the same reason, but for me, fiction is for entertainment. I love a good theological lesson and discussion, just not in my fiction. In my fiction, I want deep characters with ideas to toy with and flesh out. I want stuff that keeps me thinking instead of a lesson written down for me.

The Watchers had a promising plot and great potential, but it just got bogged down in theology. The good stuff was buried under flat characters, a predictable story line, and an overwhelming number of sermons. So much of the book is theology, by the time the ending came around, just as in The Assignment, the finale felt rushed and tied up in a hurry. Which left me wishing for something different.
Intriguing Novel of Suspense  Dec 11, 2007
Come along with Mark as he invites you to travel with Abby Sherman around the world. Well written, I couldn't put down this book because there are surprises every step of the way in her quest to obey her Creator. With strong support and understanding of who she is, her helpers guide the teenager into a deep supernatural world where she discovers gifts beyond her wildest imagination. She learns of an ancient linage that will always be despite her enemies best efforts to distinguish the lineage.

Mark is predictable in writing page turning supernatural adventure, this is no exception.

Book Review: The Watchers by Andrew Mark Olsen  Jun 14, 2007
Abby Sherman doesn't know what's happening to her. Strange vision-like dreams interrupt her dreams each night. A typical teenager, she posts these occurrences on her blog, hoping someone else out there will relate to what she's experiencing.

Suddenly her world is turned upside-down and she is the only one that can find out why. Abby sets off on a journey that will forever change her life and the lives of those she encounters. She must travel across the world and back with the one man she fears the most - the man sent to silence her. Can she find the answers she so desperately seeks?

Andrew Mark Olsen, author of The Assignment brings readers another thrilling spiritual adventure in The Watchers. Filled with suspense and intrigue, this book will draw readers in and keep them on the edge of their seat until the very end.

Olsen is a gifted writer whose creativity can make the reader feel as if he or she is witness to a real-life drama instead of a novel. I thoroughly enjoyed The Watchers. It is well written and gives a glimpse into the spiritual dimension that we don't often think about.
The Watchers  Apr 22, 2007
This is a book hard to put down.....a story of international intrigue, a fight between the forces of good and evil, a deeply troubled family and a soldier of fortune. Mark Olsen's style reminds me of the "Left Behind" series as it quickly moves the reader from one place to another in the same time frame, keeping us in suspence as it looks to faith in Jesus Christ as the saving grace.
A compelling and refreshing story  Apr 6, 2007
Abby Sherman's spiritual visions have seemingly come from nowhere and are about to lead her on the greatest adventure of her life. When she decides to share these visions on her blog, she has no idea that she will soon become a world-wide internet celebrity. Dylan Hatfield is an ex-military assassin for hire, and his latest mark is this young woman whose visions are causing global ripples of colossal proportions. Soon their paths will collide on a journey that will lead them around the world as they strive to uncover the mystery and origins of the Watchers, a unique group of women blessed with spiritual sight. All the while they must rely on God to lead and deliver them as spiritual and physical forces seek to destroy them from all sides.

Mark Andrew Olsen's latest is a compelling and refreshing story that grabs hold from page one and doesn't let go. Olsen effortlessly weaves numerous plotlines into a cohesive and intriguing tale that is full of action, intrigue, and suspense. This is an intense and fast-paced read that is interwoven with the essential spiritual elements of redemption, love, and sacrifice. Abby Sherman and Dylan Hatfield are fascinating characters that embark on a life-changing, spiritual journey that will challenge and inspire the faith of readers. This is one is highly recommended and not to be missed. (From Christian Review of Books)
