Review: Knight of Light by Deirdra Eden

In England, 1270 A.D., Auriella (pronounced yurr-ee-ella) flees her village after being accused of witchcraft. Pursued by nightmarish creatures, she struggles to accept the truth about her humanity. Filled with fairies, dwarves, pixies, dragons, demons, and monsters, Knight of Light is an enthralling tale that will capture the imaginations of readers young and old.

The Watchers Series has been described as Braveheart meets Supernatural. The mythology for the series is based on many theological texts from dozens of sects with correlating themes. Ancient writings include The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Traditional Apocrypha, The Pearl of Great Price, and The Kabbalah.
“The Watchers” are supernatural beings in human form whose duty it is to protect and guard mankind from the armies of darkness. Unfortunately, as the Book of Enoch mentions, some of these Watchers go bad. Although the mythology is based on these texts, Deirdra Eden’s The Watcher’s Series is written in a traditional fairytale style with a young girl’s discovery of incredible, but dangerous powers within herself, a cast of humorous side-kicks, a quest for greater self-discovery and purpose, and villains of epic proportions

My Review
I was going to try and compare this book with other epic tales of discovery but really, it's quite unique, even though the subject is one written by many. Perhaps if  had to, I'd say it's like a young girl's Lord of the Rings.
It was very enjoyable with twists and turns that will undoubtedly leave you on the edge of your seat. As is often the case, I became very fond of Auriella's sidekicks. They added a fun, humorous element to the story that is full of evil (I wanted to throttle that horrible witch!), fighting, love, drama and much more. I enjoyed the fact that Deirdra Eden managed to combine Medieval England with fantasy, which is perhaps the main reason I wanted to read Knight of Light. I'd certainly like to read more and look forward to the next instalment in the series. All in all, a very enjoyable read.

About the Author

"My goal in writing is to saturate my books with intrigue, mystery, romance, and plot twists that will keep my readers in suspense. I want to see fingerprints on the front and back covers where readers have gripped the novel with white knuckles! Aside from writing, I enjoy jousting in arenas, planning invasions, horseback riding through open meadows, swimming in the ocean, hiking up mountains, camping in cool shady woods, climbing trees barefoot, and going on adventures."
