Review + #Giveaway: The Watchers Book 1: Knight of Light by Deirdra Eden

The Watchers Book 1: Knight of Light

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, 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 Watchers 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.


A thrilling YA Fantasy read, this book kept me enthralled from the very first line. With a solid plotline that flowed well, it wasn't difficult getting lost in this tale of bravery, friendship and dedication. Very much a coming of age novel, this book had plenty of emotion and was quite brutal at times. My heart ached for Auriella because it seemed that no matter which way she turned there was some danger lurking. 

I was intrigued by the powers she seemed to possess and there was obviously something more to her than just being a simple orphan girl, and I was excited to see her grow in many different ways as the story progressed. With an unusual band of travel companions, she was able to face her reality and to face her fears. I thought it was mighty brave and honorable of her to accept her destiny, and to go in search of living Lucas' dream of being a knight.

A tale filled with magic and adventure, this was a brilliant page turner that has left me wanting more of this series. I have a feeling there are many more surprises in store for Auriella and the other great characters I had the pleasure of meeting on this journey.

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."
