By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 Jan. 2011
Format: Paperback
I had high hopes for this book after discovering the fiery and feisty Elise would take the lead role. Introduced in book 1 and with only a small part played in book 2, Elise came across as the toughest of the 3 heroines. She's mouthy, has a nose ring, wears tatty jeans and Dr Marten boots and plays guitar; she must be one big bad female. Err no not initially. Unfortunately for the first part of this book Elise reacts in the same was as Theo and Mari. Going "into shock" she loses the ability to function and lets her Watcher Remy take control of any threatening situations. Thankfully, during the last few chapters Elise is at full throttle with her powers over fire enhanced and Remy and the other Watchers prove to be little more than bystanders. Unfortunately, LS then has to go and spoil the whole thing when Elise finishes her battle with a swoon worthy of Scarlet O'Hara.

Yep there's plenty of action and a strong paranormal theme but the romance between Elise and Remy is weak. Elise is "very angry" throughout the majority of the book and clearly has a troubled history, but this is only ever hinted at rather than explored. I think my 3 star rating is a little harsh for "Fire Watcher" but I've had my fill of this author's breed of heroine.

The best one yet in the series!!! 12 May 2006
By Deborah Wiley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Enter a magical world where good and evil battle and all is not as it seems to the mortal eye....

Elise Nicholson is a fire witch and a reluctant Guardian (see DARK WATCHER). She doesn't trust the Circle Lightfall or the Watchers and is starting to feel a little left out as her two best friends, Mari and Theo, are blissfully happy with their Watchers while Elise is all alone.

Remy is the Watcher known as the Hunter and Circle Lightfall has him searching for a powerful magical talisman called the Trifero, the Talisman of fire and destruction. Remy dreams of being assigned as a Watcher and finding the Lightbringer who can ease his pain but he has never had the chance until now. A surprise phone call sends him to Elise. Little does he know but it also sends him to the Trifero as Elise now possesses the talisman.

Elise and her friends face a new threat this time as the Brotherhood wants to capture and use Elise and the Trifero for their own nefarious purposes. Can Elise learn to control her anger and prevent total destruction from occurring? Will Remy convince Elise that he can be the kind of Watcher she wants?

Elise's character has remained consistently tough through the entire series but she is somewhat softened in FIRE WATCHER. She has mixed feelings over seeing her two best friends happy while she is alone. Readers will empathize with her as she feels isolated with only her guitar for company. Her fiery temper coupled with her tendency to rush headlong into things make her a witch only the Watcher destined for her could handle. Remy's calming influence on Elise is magical and readers will cheer for Elise and Remy's relationship.

The introduction of the Brotherhood provides an intriguing twist and helps keep this series fresh and exciting. While the Dark still wants to destroy the Lightbringers, it becomes harder for them to do so as Mari, Elise, and Theo develop their powers. The Brotherhood is more of a business consortium however, and doesn't have to follow the same guidelines as the Dark.

FIRE WATCHER can be read as a stand alone novel. However, to truly appreciate the complexity of the world and the depth of Elise's pain, this reviewer recommends reading DARK WATCHER and STORM WATCHER first. But consider yourself forewarned.... Once starting FIRE WATCHER, you will not want to put it down until you have finished it!

Dark Fantasy Romance 20 Jun. 2006
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this third installment of her "Guardian Witches" series Lilith Saintcrow brings us the story of the Fire Witch, Elise, and her Watcher, Remy. This series just gets better and better as we learn more about the Dark and the Brotherhood.

Elise has always had a firey temper, to go with the fire power she has as a fire witch. She has also been very cautious of the Watchers. Now a Watcher has arrived unexpectedly, and this time it is her Watcher. Although attracted to Remy she is still not sure of his loyalties. Elise was brought up the hard way and finds trusting a hard thing to do. Theo and Mari are the only family she has since Suzanne's death. Elise finds it hard to admit she is jealous of the time and attention Mari and Theo give to their Watchers. Maybe having her own Watcher will help her to understand.

Remy is a Cajun, he has been to the jaws of hell and was saved by Circle Lightfall, when they made him a Watcher. He has never really watched a witch, as long as he has been a Watcher, he has searched for and found many powerful items and icons for the Circle. He is known as the "Hunter", now he has a witch to look out for and as fate would have it , she is his witch. The witch who takes away his pain and replaces it with pleasure. But how can he earn her trust, when he believes himself to be unloveable and unworthy.

This time the Brotherhood is determined to possess Elise, especially since she has come into possession of the TRIFERO. A mystical ornament that will magnify her powers. Fire witches are very rare. When they cannot reach Elise herself they kidnap her band, and now only heaven knows what they must face to save them. Against all advice Elise goes her own way, and Remy must find a way to not only save her from the Dark but from herself as well. I loved it.

not as good as 1 & 2 20 Jun. 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Third in Saintcrow's "Watcher" series, we get the story of Elise, the fire witch. Elise, to date, has been without a Watcher, and she doesn't understand her friends' relationships with their watchers. She is suspicious of anyone who tries to get close to her friends, and she really does not want to trust the Watchers, despite seeing them in action, protecting the witches from the evil that is encroaching the city of which they have become Guardians. Elise has a temper, which she lets get the better of her, many times, and she doesn't use her common sense when she is trying to protect her friends, despite the trials from her friends' experiences. Remy, her Watcher, is a Cajun, and his easy-going temperment is the perfect foil to Elise's jump first attitude. When Elise comes into possession of the "trifero" which multiplies her power infinitely, things heat up in the city of the Guardians, and Remy has his hands full. I liked the first two stories better - it seemed to me that Elise didn't learn squat from the first two and ended up hurting her friends more because of it.

Decent read 19 Jan. 2015
By Carmella S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This story is about Elise, a fire witch. She is a tough woman, as was needed for her to survive her childhood. Elise is having a rough time right now and doesn't feel she is getting the support she needs from her friends Theo & Mari. They have all lost a beloved friend and mentor, Suzanne. Her friends have also gained a Watcher, a protector, and she feels pushed aside.

Remy then enters her life as her Watcher. She is angry, very angry! She doesn't want or need a watcher but Dark forces have other ideas. If they can get her and the Talisman "Trifero" they will have power they never conceived of. As soon as Remy meets her, he knows she is his witch..the witch that will make his pain go away. She will fight him on all sides even tho she really doesn't want to.

Like many paranormal stories, some of the creatures have really odd names and it takes awhile to be able to connect that name and creature. In this story, we met several creatures around the same time and the names were boggling my head up a bit.

I felt like I needed to know a bit more about Remy, sure I knew his story and how he got there but was his fate to be a yes-man to Elise? A partner in life? I just didn't feel he was developed enough. I am curious about the other Watchers, Dante & Hanson and if their relationship was the same with their witches.

I think Lilth did great with the Dark. They really were vile creatures and you would have to be brave to face them.

Thank you for the opportunity to read this book.

series fires up too late [no spoilers] 4 Sept. 2007
By Oscar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"The Watcher Series" continues three months later in "Fire Watcher" with Elise and new Watcher Remy, whose growls rattle windows and walls often, as the focal characters. The usual desire to touch and taste the other while staring and thinking "I don't deserve him/her" pervades the novel. It is obvious the series will not contain deep character growth but spontaneous action towards undeveloped and vague antagonists.

Remy the Hunter faces off against the Brotherhood, a Dark organization dedicated to business and profit, in an attempt to prevent them from capturing fire witch Elise and a Talisman called the Trifero. What compels the Brotherhood's intentions is not revealed. Long overdue fight scenes transpire with wild magick and sufficient melee action.

The series is pro-pagan; therefore those of a highly inflexible religious background or intolerant attitude towards religion might want to avoid the selection.

Thank you.
