Teen Tuesday – The Watchers Trilogy, YA Paranormal Feature

I was thrilled to stumble upon this author, Karice Bolton, whose books also deal with good versus evil like Shadow Eyes (soon-to-be-series).  I must say they look awesome!  She’s here today to talk about The Watchers Trilogy.  Be sure to visit her website by clicking here and check out all her books!  Take it away, Karice!


Hi Dusty!

Thanks so much for featuring Awakening on your blog. Awakening is the first book in The Watchers Trilogy. There are actually four books available, including Taken, which is a novella that is a prequel to the trilogy.


Awakening Synopsis

Alone in snowy, remote Whistler village, Ana tries to build a new life since losing her parents. With a cozy condo, a sweet-faced bulldog and an evening job to leave the days free for the slopes, life slips into a great routine. If only she could shake the guilt for not remembering anything about her parents and banish the night terrors that haunt her every dream.

On a whim, Ana goes out with Athen, a guy she’s just met in the Grizzly Pub… The only problem is that she feels like she already knows him.

Within 48 hours of meeting Athen and his family, Ana’s world implodes. She falls for Athen quickly and before she knows it, a past life begins to resurface. As thrilling as the revelations appear at first, she fights against the chilling information that Athen is from the underworld. Soon she begins to struggle as her own supernatural gifts are slowly unveiled, and she realizes that the nightmares she’s been having might be premonitions and not dreams at all.


What I loved about writing The Watchers Trilogy was playing with good and evil, and the trilogy as a whole allowed me to do that. I got to experience the progression of each of the characters, and it was a really great experience.

I liked Ana’s innocence and her desire to learn more about where she actually came from and what was expected of her in the future. Her character grew the most during the trilogy. Although, she really was just getting back to the ‘person’ she always had been. I also enjoyed writing about Athen. His loyalty was my favorite trait. And Arie was a blast to write because she was always so uplifting. Awakening was a fun mix of characters to bring out in Awakening. I always hope people enjoy reading The Watchers Trilogy just as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Anyway, I really thank you for inviting me over. It was fun to be able to say ‘hi’. Since The Watchers Trilogy was set in the Northwest, I thought it would be fun to include a tasty recipe that is perfect for summer and involves salmon. The recipe is courtesy of the Food Network!


Salmon with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze



3 tablespoons light brown sugar

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon finely grated ginger

Vegetable oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

8 salmon fillets, 6 ounces each


On the side burner, melt the brown sugar, honey and butter in a small sauté pan over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and whisk in the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil and ginger. Let cool.

Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush salmon with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the salmon skin side down on the grill. Coat the flesh of the salmon fillets with the brown sugar mixture. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes to medium doneness, turning once after 5 to 6 minutes.
