The Watchers, Knight of Light by Deirdra Eden


In England, 1270 A.D., Aura flees her village after being accused of witchcraft and sentenced to death. Pursued by creatures of darkness, she struggles to accept the truth about her humanity and choose what side of an eternal war she will fight. Filled with fairies, dwarves, pixies, dragons, and epic villains, Knight of Light is an enthralling tale that will capture the imaginations of readers young and old.

I was surprised at how well she tied this story into what real life is actually about, as well as proud of the positive and realistic message she is sending to teens. I couldn't agree more with the novel's spiritual undertones. This one is a diamond in the rough because of the truth it reflects. I never read series, especially those sporting fairies and dwarfs, but I know I'll be making an exception for The Watchers series. Thanks for a good read!”

“From the very first pages, I was struck by the story – it flowed so well, not a word wasted and no extra words needed. The timeline is excellent – the build-up of the story starts on page one and carries you on to the very last page without any letup. It’s a hard book to put down – I wanted to carry on reading as I delved deeper and that’s from someone who, prior to this, has never read fantasy.

I truly believe that Deirdra Eden has a winner with this – it’s a book with wide appeal, from children through to more mature readers. I loved every moment of this book and can say truthfully that it’s one of the very best I’ve read in a long time. I am highly recommending it and give it a 5 star review without hesitation. The Watchers by Deirdra Eden”
