    Captivating & Emotional Family Read

    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. 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!

    Such a nail biting story!

    I have had the wonderful opportunity to review this novel. The Story is about a girl named Auriella. The first sentence in the book caught my attention right away. Every page grabs your attention even more. When I first saw the cover of the book.. I thought, " I don't know if I am going to like this". Needless to say I cannot wait to read the second book! The Author Deirdra Eden put so much thought and effort into this book it's no wonder why it is amazing. You will not regret getting this book. I was on the edge of my couch the entire time! "I have received this item under discount in exchange for my honest review."

    knight of light

    I was captivated from the first sentence of this book. I wanted to know more about Auriella, the main character; was drawn into the world that that Deirdra Eden had created; and finished the book in less than 24 hours. The author takes you through a wonderful mythical journey, revealing bits of information regarding who and what exactly is a "Watcher" or "Knight of Light" along the way. At times the story seemed to make a quick transition from one section to the next, but that was quickly forgotten as new part of the story drew me in. This book is the first in its' series, so much of this book appears to be a lead-in to more of the story to come in future books. Overall, the author has a great ability to provide wonderful imagery with her words. This book is a wonderful fit for a younger audience with the wonder and imagination, but I am looking forward to book #2 as well, and to continuing to follow Auriella on her journey. I received this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    Enthralling and entertaining!

    This story has action, adventure, romance, and magic, the characters are well-drawn, and the story itself keeps me turning the pages to see what will happen next. The author does a wonderful job of making me care about the characters, and I'm very much looking forward to getting the next book so I can find out what's going to happen next. I also love that there is no graphic sex or violence, so I can share these books with my kids, because i'm sure they'll love them, too. This series is definitely going to end up on my shelf with the rest of my favorites!
