    • Isle of Night is the first in a new young adult paranormal series, THE WATCHERS. Author Veronica Wolff attempts to combine several hot fiction trends into Isle of Night: vampires, boarding school, catty mean girls, and a scenario in which teens are forced to fight to the death.Annelise Drew, who goes by her last name, is looking forward to escaping her abusive home life and going to college. When she gets to school, though, an issue has arisen with her high school credits and she’s unable to e [...]

    • Originally Reviewed on The Book Smugglers: thebooksmugglers/2011/09/bAnneliese Drew is a certified genius, and a girl desperate to escape her dead end hometown of Christmas, Florida, her abusive father, evil stepmother, and decidedly mediocre classmates. So, Drew is thrilled when she is able to graduate from high school early with a full scholarship to the University of Florida, and she gleefully leaves Christmas miles behind her. When she gets to UF and tries to check in to her shiny new future [...]

    • Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyI have a self imposed rule with books. I give them fifty pages to win me over. If I’m not intrigued by then, I tend to move on. I’ve never been so glad to have that rule than I am after finishing—and loving—ISLE OF NIGHT by Veronica Wolff because the first fifty pages did not entice me at all. But, and this is a big but, from then on, the rest of the book became one of the most dangerous, romantic, and exciting paranormal YA titles I’ve read a [...]

    • People have been saying this book is Vampire Academy Meets Hunger Games - lemme chime in this is NOT a gross exaggeration.The heroine, Annelise is smart, quick-on-her-feet, and sarcastic, - the best friend you've always wanted kill and bury in your backyard so you can assume her identity.Sucktastic things happen to Annelise as she gets drawn to the Isle of Night but events feel real and grounded (even when they involve vampires) and not gratuitous or contrived. Once you join her on the journey, [...]

    • When Annelise meets dark and seductive Ronan, he promises her a new life-if she has the courage to chance the unknown. Now, she's whisked away to a mysterious island and pitted against other female recruits to become a Watcher-girls who are partnered with vampires and assist them in their missions. To survive and become a Watcher, Annelise has to beat out every other girl, but she's determined to do so, because to fail doesn't mean dishonor-it means deathThis book was very enjoyable but it did t [...]

    • 2 Stars: Not too bad. Probably wouldn't buy again, but no waste of time/tree either. Some flaws, but often much potential. Often make my petpeeveometer blink like crazy. Def­i­nitely advice you to bor­row or swap instead of pay­ing the full price. ________________The first few pages were quite good actually. They were easy to read and it wasn't until the heroine, Drew, met the Tracer Ronan, that things went downhill. They later got better, though. So 2 stars.But first things first. Drew is a [...]

    • To be quite honest I have no idea where to start on this book. From the description I had high hopes for liking it, but it fell flat in so many ways it was hard for me to look past the ways it didn’t live up to the synopsis.Firstly Annelise who likes to be called Drew is supposed to be a genius. Like a real genius. That paired with the fact she come from an abusive family is why the vampires and their trackers picked her as a recruit, however in any class you see Drew in her knowledge is smart [...]

    • Okay, I was a Twilight fan and loved that series. But, as a whole, I tend to be leery of vampire novels because so many twists have been rung out of the myths and legends that I can't help but think that subject has been squeezed dry. And then I picked up this book, and, OMG! It was awesome!!Annelise Drew is a character that almost any reader could relate to and cheer for. She's had her hard knocks, so to speak, and she's determined to make something of her life instead of being pulled down into [...]

    • The first five chapters just horrified me. I couldn't go through a minute without thinking 'WTF Is she going to do now!?' at least once. Anneliese (Drew) is supposed to be this incredibly smart girl and apparently it only counts academically. Common sense must not be considered as that important, which I felt was sad. Drew needed it. It's commonsense not to drive off into a so-called Paradise with a stranger next to you whom you barely know. No matter how hot he is. Honestly, it made me feel lik [...]

    • If you have read my early status updates then you will already know just how much I hated the beginning of this book. I knew instantly that I wouldn't like Drew. And I didn't. I didn't like Annelise/Drew at all, she had that holier-than-thou attitude and she brought up her so called intelligence up whenever she had the chance. Drew judged everybody around her and had a generalised stereotypical view of every person and groups of people she came across.Why is it that so many protagonists seem to [...]

    • Annalise Drew is a pretty, smart, and lives in Florida. Hm, sounds like someone I know. She is swept away by the mysterious Ronan and taken to the Isle of Night where she must train for her life, literally. This was like a bad mixture of the House of Night series and The Testing series. I didn't get what I was promised: vampires and a worthy heroine. Drew was supposed to be this genius, she talked about her SAT score and love of school enough. What people, including this author, mistakes is that [...]

    • If you can imagine Vampire Academy mixed with the Hunger Gameswell then you get Isle of Night! This book was very captivating. To the plot, to the characters, to the romance and to the action, this book had it all! I have to say I am in love with Ronan (who wouldn't be in love with a guy who has green eyes and dark hair,.I mean can u say YUM!;) I have mixed feelings about Alcantara though and then there is Yas never stops!!!!!I had a lot of fun reading this book, i was a little late to finish it [...]

    • DNF @ 4%I was excited to read this because I love vampires! And it featured an abuse victim escaping her situation and finding excitement. Unfortunately I cannot stand the main character. The narration is told from her point of view. And I just I just can't. Here are some of the gems that led me to my decision to give up on this book. Page 8: " Tall, dark, and hot leaned against a pillar, watching me as I took my place in line. Tousled dark hair went every which way on his head. His eyes were sl [...]

    • Isle of Night by Veronica Wolff had its moments where I was lost in the world she has created. The heroine, Annelise is known as what is called “kick ass” in the YA world. Annelise prefers to be called by her last name Drew for no reason explained. Drew has graduated high school a semester early because she has perfect SATs and a high IQ. She comes from an abusive family. Her father beats her and her evil witch of a step mother. She’s so happy to fly from the coop and to attend college on [...]

    • Where should I start with Isle of Night?Well, I might just say that I didn't finish this one. I just couldn't proceed reading it after a certain point, so this isn't exactly a review, I'll just state the reasons that made me put this book aside and won't be picking it up again any time soon.First of all, from the very first chapters I rolled my eyes more times than in an average book. From the heroine,Annelise, saying again and again that she's so freaky smart to the way she met Ronan,the hero.I [...]

    • Isle of Night by Veronica Wolff has been pitched as a cross between the Vampire Academy and Hunger Games series. I do think that is somewhat fitting – an original vampire community mixed with students fighting to the death for the chance to partner with them. (Also fitting is the fact that the cover reminds me of the craptastic first Vampire Academy covers.) However – if you pick up the book with that comparison in mind, you’ll ultimately be setting yourself up for disappointment.Through a [...]

    • Loved it!I found this book quite by accident while browsing on Saturday and then I started reading it on Sunday night and was finished on Monday. Now, I'm waiting. ugh. I hate that part!I thought the storyline sounded okay and thought I'd try it and once I got started reading it I couldn't put it down. It was really intriguing and different. Each chapter ended on such a high note that I just had to turn the page and start the next chapter. Ronan sounds like an amazing character although we didn' [...]

    • I definitely liked this book enough to read the sequel, but I'm having trouble figuring out why. The writing and pacing are a little rough. The boy-worship for the first 50 pages is especially hard to get through, especially since Drew's supposed to be so smart. Some things come out of nowhere and then don't go anywhere else, like her brief friendship with Josh and her sudden obsession with her combat teacher, while other more interesting things go unexplained. Also, I have the same problem with [...]

    • So I finished this in one night.Initial Reaction: Um, should I continue reading this orSo basically the main protagonist Annelise Drew gets on a plane with a stranger. Wow. I cannot even.Then we're reminded 500 times throughout the book that said plane-boarding was not HER fault but the aforementioned stranger, Ronan's fault. Whelp.Honestly the author could have found a MUCH better way to bring Annelise to the Isle than trying to convince me she hates her life so much she's going to board a plan [...]

    • Okay. So. This is a hard review to write, because I didn't LOVE this book but there were lots of things to love about it. It's a solid 3.8 IMO. I sure as hell liked it but it was kind of forgettable at the same time. Maybe that's because I just finished reading Indebted (Premonition, #3) tho. That book would make me forget my kid at the supermarket (if I had a kid).I bought this book for a solid $10 cos it came across as Twilight meets Divergent. Or maybe Vampire Academy meets Hunger Games. Ie i [...]

    • ISLE OF NIGHT is a fantastically thrilling YA debut that blew me away! Wolff gets points for taking off with vampires and creating such a unique world. I could not put this book down for one second, and I even risked peeking between the pages in class! The action is non-stop so there is absolutely zero chance of getting bored. You are sure in for a treat when you decide to delve into ISLE OF NIGHT. Annelise is my kind of girl. She has had a really rough life, but she doesn't sit on her butt and [...]

    • *Spoiler Free*Hmmm. I'm in two minds about this book. I'm not too sure if I actually liked it or not. I think I liked the idea of the book but the actual bookt so much.Perhaps it's because it was compared with the Hunger Games and Vampire Academy two of the greatest series evahhh!!! I mean whywhy??!! WHY would you make that comparison (you=no-one in particular) it's almost setting yourself up for a fail, because stupid me as readerI believed it. As if someone could incorporate the Hunger Games a [...]

    • I honestly would give this book 4.5 stars. At the beginning, I was slightly confused about the scene with Drew fighting with her step mother, but later on in the book, I saw why that was very necessary to include. Additionally, I was annoyed at Drew's first encounter with Ronan. Ronan basically helps her with her car after she discovers that she can't start college because she didn't pass a swim test in high school, which she didn't even know there was. Ronan offers to give her a ride and she ac [...]

    • A Vampiric tale, surprisingly lacking on vampires. I see that face your making. Let me explain. The Isle of Night may be ran by vampires, but this is Annelise's story. Annelise is a very human girl. She's "training" to be a Watcher (what exactly that entails isn't so clear at this point) and if she becomes a Watcher she will eventually partner with a vampire. Becoming a watcher isn't exactly easy. Think along the lines of "to the death" tournaments with a wicked academic schedule.Initially I had [...]

    • Unique, thrilling, and intense, Isle Of Night, takes the term "bad-ass beauties" to a whole new level.Annelise just wants to get away. From her crappy town, her abusive family, and her high school. And then tall, dark, and handsome with memorizing green eyes shows up and offers it to her. Ronan promises her a whole new life if she's strong enough. She's reluctant, but accepts. What she finds is nothing like what she expected. Annelise finds herself amongst hard core beauties and want-to-be vampi [...]

    • Al principio de esperas una historia de terror y sociedad secreta, bueno no esta tan lejos, si existe una sociedad secreta, sin embargo es muy selecta con quienes dejan entrar. Drew es un chica promedio, buenas caluficaciones y bonita, pero con unos padres de s@$÷#%, y una infancia arruina, ella en medio de su personalidad poco apreciativa es escojida a ir a esta isla porsu gran coheficiente intelectual, el detalle es que eso no le sera del todo favorable, ya que esta rodeada de chicas que apre [...]

    • Isle of Night was a fantastic start to a new series that was a ton of fun to read. With it's fast paced action, I could scarcely put it down. Wolff balanced all the elements needed to great a perfectly epic story.It took me several chapters to be fully on board. I wasn't quite understanding what was going on and it was a bit unbelievable, then all at once everything made sense and I just couldn't put Isle of Night down. I was up until some crazy hour of the morning reading, until I finally made [...]

    • Oh, my FREAKING God, I think I'm three feet off the ground right now ! I just understood the meaning of the word "devour", because that's exactly what I did to this totally amazing book ! Highly recommend it ! Now, *looks around* where's book 2 ?? *starts feverishly searching the net*

    • This is not one I would normally pick up but it was part of my #cupidgoespostal gift so I gave it a go and I am so glad I did. I was enthralled from the first chapter and couldn't put it down. Lucky I am at home recovering from surgery so I had all day to read it.

    • this looks ridiculous and I TOTALLY want to read it RIGHT THE HELL NOW. September so far away!Added 8/3/2012 - well, it's not the worst book I ever read, and I still want to know what happens, but there were a bunch of issues :/ solid 2-star.
