Publisher's Summary

“I’ve lost everything - my humanity, the man I loved - but I won’t let them win. I will not give up and I will fight back…because I made a vow and I intend to keep it.”

Sawyer spent most of her life hunting the very thing she has now become. No longer the Watcher she once was, Sawyer struggles to make sense of her new identity. Though she has new powers and abilities, she is also tied to the control that comes with those powers.

Desperate for help and answers, Sawyer travels to the United Isles with Max in search of an ally. Not only must she learn to harness her new abilities, she must find a way to mend a broken heart. Help comes in unexpected ways, and though she is ready to fight back, it's not going to be easy.

Strangers will become allies. Lovers will become enemies. And a destiny formed before birth unfolds.

The epic journey continues, and the war for the human race draws ever closer. Join the resistance in the next chapter of the Watcher series.

Addicting!

Sawyer and a group of others fled their home and made their way to the United Isles. They are hoping to make a home here and Sawyer is hoping to learn how to tap into her Carbon abilities. That's all I'm saying in my summary because I'll spoil something!!

I should give this 4 stars because I loathe love triangles and tend to keep well away from them, but I can't, I have to give it the full 5 stars because it's just that good, even with a love triangle of sorts!!!

I loved Sawyer in the first book, and loved her even more here. She became the thing he hunted, and has to deal with that. The first bit of the book focuses on her trying to come to terms with this and all it entails. She never for one moment thought she would become a Carbon, but she shines as one, and I loved seeing her come into her abilities. It just made me like her more.

Coleman has control over Kenzie and he isn't who I grew to love in the first. I felt so sorry for him when he starts to realise some things!! My heart broke when he met Sawyer. I want to say why but I'm not spoiling anything! Even if he isn't the Kenzie of the first book, he is still a strong character and I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing where his story takes us.

The plot flowed nicely and the pacing was perfect. The descriptive writing made it easy to picture the Isles and the battles etc. I found myself lost in the world the author created and few through the audio. I need the next book ASAP though!!

In all, a excellent read, even if there is a love triangle!! ;) I can understand why there's one, I just wasn't happy about it. I urge you to check out the series!!

I love the dual narration and both narrators do an amazing job. Chelsea Stephens reads this with plenty of emotion and makes for an amazing Sawyer. The only thing I saw though was that her voices for the females are fairly similar! Steve Campbell also did an awesome job. He reads Kenzie so well and his voice for Max and Coleman were great. Can't wait to hear them in the next edition!!

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

truly amazing

I've read this book, but sometimes it's good for Someone else to read it to you. I enjoyed this version as much as I enjoyed reading the book itself. would definitely recommend it to anyone

Sawyer Is Awesome

Carbon is the second book in the Watcher series by AJ Eversley and it jumps in right where Watcher left off. We are following Sawyer as she is trying to learn to control herself, her new body, and her emotions. The intro to the story has us following them to the United Isles which is where I thought that Eversley's writing really shined.  As she was describing the shore where they landed, the people, the houses, and the castle I felt like I was taken to another world.  The setting, while drastically different from Watcher, was still one of the strong points of this book.

Understanding that this is a YA dystopian book I go into it expecting a few things.  Love interests and sometimes triangles are going to be there.  Young men and women who don't completely understand their bodies, emotions, and hormones will also usually be in play. Carbon has all of those things but doesn't feel like it's falling for the same typical tropes as well.  I was chatting with Paul from Audiobook Reviewer and I told him that I felt like I knew/understood where the love interest was going to go but I actually had no idea how the book and the main story was going to end.  I was genuinely surprised by the ending.

Another strong suit of Eversley is her actual storytelling.  She jumps around a bit but it's so that you can see the story from both sides.  You get to know Sawyer and all of her goings on (princess, Max, etc) but then we jump to Coleman and his minions.  Seeing it from both sides doesn't always help you guess or figure out what is going to happen.  There were numerous times where things were said that I thought "Woah!"

Having a dual narration for each "side" of this issue helped with the back and forth as well.  As I believe I mentioned in my original review I thought that Chelsea Stephens absolutely kills it in her narration of Sawyer - she just is Sawyer and it's perfect.  Steve Campbell's voicing of the "bad guys" in this was perfect.  He has a deeper (but still young sounding voice) that I think lends itself not only to this story but to YA in general.

Overall, I thought that Carbon was good but not great.  And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. There were some typical YA themes within, but if you're a fan of other books in this genre with strong female leads - you will not be disappointed by this series.

4-stars is nothing to scoff at and I'm genuinely waiting for the third book to come out on audio.  Eversley, Stephens, and Campbell give us a sneak peek at book 3 at the end of Carbon's audiobook - but I skipped it hoping to enjoy it beginning to end in early 2019.

Looking at the cover again and re-thinking about the first two books.  I could see a younger Mila Kunis playing Sawyer.  This has nothing to do with my review - I just wanted to point it out if this ever becomes a movie! :)

Just as good the second time around

This is the second book in the series, authored by AJ Eversley.
The action picks up right away, and you're drawn right back into their world. Sawyer is struggling, but in new ways. Very well written and I was captivated throughout the entire story.

It's mostly a YA but any age would love this story. Well written, well narrated, and all in all a great experience. Will look for the next one!

Carbon is Captivating

Sawyer's journey continues in Carbon and book 2 is just as thrilling if not more than the 1st book. The author has found the perfect mixture of action, suspense, romance and humor. I am invested in these characters and find myself cheering, cringing, laughing and booing as I read/listen. The narrator is fantastic bringing the characters and story to life. I am excited for Book 3 to see where the author takes the story next.

Carbon

This was a good second book in this series.I liked the first book better BUT that doesn't take away from how good this book is.Sawyer is back and learning to be her new self.There are some twists you don't see coming. Chelsea Stephens and Steve Campbell are very good narrators.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Twists and Turns

There are several plot twists and turns in this second book of the series. Sawyer is definitely dealing with some internal struggles and feelings of depression regarding her self-identity and the lost of those she cares about. Can she ever allow herself to let people in and love again? I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the next audio book to be released.
