13-year-old orphan girl Auriella flees her village after being accused of being a witch, only to be captured and enslaved by Hazella Lamia, a crazy witch. However, escaping the witch's hut with a pixie and a dwarf is only the start of Auriella's adventure and quest to find out who she really is.

Knight of Light, the first book of Deirdra Eden's The Watchers series, is an interesting, albeit rather short, fairy tale filled with magic and magical creatures. Intertwined with Auriella's quest to discover her heritage is the timeless subtext of good versus evil, pitting the promised Lady of Neviah and the Neviahans against the rebellious Shadow King Erebus and his Shadow Legion.

The story abounds with juvenile humour, passionate declarations and the uncertainty of coming of age. Eden tries to be lighthearted overall, and succeeds in the main part, though older readers might roll their eyes at the lame puns that Auriella and her friends laugh at.

I quite enjoyed reading Knight of Light.

I received a copy of this e-book from Eden Literary in exchange for an honest review.

While this book is great for the time between your favorite books come out, I would not run out and continue to buy the series.

The author takes great pains to describe the scenery and trying to give the plot more depth, but I feel as if the characters are lacking.

It was hard to understand what any of the motives where and that each character had any real personality of their own.

I do love that it is filled with fairies, dwarves, pixies, dragons, demons, monsters, and a witch. Who would not love a book mixed with that, but being the geek I am about fantasy novels, this is more one I would let my teen read then me.

Thank you for letting me read it though, I think it might be a good start to something!

I received this product free in exchanged for an honest review through Tomoson and the publisher.

This is the story of human watchers. The Watchers: Knight of Light by Deirdra Eden is a right mix of everything you would ask for in a fantasy adventure. The Watchers are supernatural beings in human form, charged with protecting mankind from the armies of darkness. Unfortunately, some of these Watchers go bad. In England, 1270 A.D., Auriella flees her village after being accused of witchcraft and sentenced to death. Pursued by nightmarish creatures, she struggles to accept the truth about her humanity. 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.

Knight of Light, More than a Book for Young Adults

I am writing to tell you about a wonderful new book I just read. I really enjoyed the book, ''Knight of Light'', the 1st in the Watchers Series.

This adventure story targets young adults, but is entertaining for all ages. The setting begins in England in 1270 a.d., and our hero, Auriella, is a young girl who does not realize she is more than human. As she matures, Auriella conquers adversity while learning her powers as a Nevian, she is captured by a witch, battles the Shadow Legion, makes unlikely allies and ultimately becomes a knight and protector of the King. I would give more details, but don't want to be a spoiler.

Pick up this book, you will definitely be glad you did. The book is a real page turner! I read it in one sitting - I just didn't want to put it down ... I am really looking forward to the next in the series!

This has the potential of being a major motion picture with its descriptive text, and wonderful nail biting battles.

I downloaded it at and I got it free for my honest and unbiased opinion.

The Watchers: Knight of Light audiobook, and I have the digital copy, is read very well, clear, with nice voice changes by the reader, Julia Farmer. This is a fantasy adventure written in first person viewpoint from the main character of the story. It has all the wonderful creatures, magic, and evil that makes for an exciting fantasy adventure you love to read or listen too.
The story centers on a young, orphan girl named Auriella and she has to leave the only home she knows due to being accused as a witch. The time period is 1270 A.D. and is in England so being accused as a witch is not a good thing. She ends up indebted to a evil witch that saved her life whom terrorizes he as she keeps her enslaved. Auriella learns she is more than she seems and has a power she was not aware of. Then she escapes with help of her friends, a pixie and a dwarf then she cant start her quest in self-discovery. She does not know what she is or who she may be and does not feel she will meet everyone's expectations. This story grabs you from the beginning and keeps you on the edge of your seat then slows a little into the adventure as she prepares to take part in a role where she is more than a poor orphan.
This is great story for young adults or adults as it has adventure, friendship, creatures, villains, humor, and interesting characters and is an easy read or easy to listen too. There are no difficult concepts or inappropriate content that would not be suitable for young adults. I enjoyed the story and it feels like the beginning of an fun and exciting new adventure. There are parts that feel a little unrealistic as it 's a little too easy for Auriella as she meets new people, creatures, or receives help. Things just seem to go a little too smooth in her quest after she was tormented at the beginning. Auriella's angst should be increasing, not decreasing in the story. Yet this is just a first of a series and meant to be more of a prequel of a new and exciting story that really has not begun yet and we are being introduced to the world, characters, and our heroine. I gave this book a 4 star rating as it did not really provide the action, drama, or angst I was expecting after the first third of the book. Overall, it was still a great read and I loved listening to it also. It is good in either format.

Review by: Riverreviews on Dec. 25, 2015 :
I must begin by saying I am an adult in my 30's who loves to read. I believe reading is a very personal choice and style and not one book can be seen by everyone the same. Just as authors write in different styles, readers read what appeals to them. I was asked to do an unbiased review in exchange for a free copy of the book. All thought are my own based on my reading of the book. Knowing nothing of the author or book series I downloaded and began my journey. I was quickly hurled into a world of fantasy in 1270 AD, England where we are introduced to Auriella, an orphan girl who we quickly find out is no normal child. The very first chapter does a great job at hooking you and I instantly sat and read until I fell asleep. The beginning of the book moves quickly. Each turn of the page bring new suspense and emotion. In no time at all I was invested in Auriella. With the introduction of Hazella, I could feel the anger welling inside me at her disregard for the life of another and I wondered what made her such a horrible character in life. I felt as though I could place myself in Auriella shoes with each passing day. The characters were easy to follow as the author does not add too many characters which I really appreciated. Upon Auriella's escape from Hazella I was rooting for her and her little band of odd associates. Suddenly the story takes a big leap. I am captivated, caught in the world with Auriella, fighting by her side. And then... another twist. The story goes from the one of suspense and hope that I was already in love with to one of a slower pace of romance. This is why I gave it only 4 stars. While I enjoyed the entire book and do plan to keep reading the series to see where Auriella goes from here, I was a bit thrown off by her perfections and easy going life she now leads without having resolved the initial story that had me hooked and captivated. I do like the book as the style and character development is one of my liking. The story itself is also a good read but the drastic change in tempo threw me off since I was already hooked and it along for the ride. I think as an adult I appreciated the book and my daughter (13) is now reading it as well and enjoying it. I love the fantasy world created and its use of fairies, dwarfs and the likes that Eden pursues and it opens up the room for the mind to be free from restrictions. I recommend this book to adult who can appreciate fantasy and teenage romance, but even more so for young adults. The book is not inappropriate at any points and I felt good giving it to my daughter to read. She is now waiting for me to download the next book. Enjoy losing yourself in this book!
