Review: The Watchers by Deirdra Eden

“The Watchers” are supernatural beings in human form, charged with protecting mankind from the armies of darkness. Unfortunately, some of these Watchers go bad. 
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.

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.

A wonderful fairytale that is an enjoyable and exciting read, Knight of Light is an excellent book for all ages. In the Acknowledgement section, author Deirdra Eden explains that she started writing this story at the age of 15 but didn't publish it until the book had passed through many hands, been critiqued, finessed, and finally published when Eden was in her 30's. Because I read this first, I could easily imagine a young girl, maybe a bit shy and insecure, writing this story and dreaming of the day when she would eventually fit into her own skin.
Protagonist Auriella becomes an orphan, then an outcast, a slave to an evil witch, a non-human hunted by evil creatures, and finally a hero. That is what life is all about: Kissing frogs to get to the prince. Looking at the clouds to find a silver lining. Being patient, waiting for our happy endings. Knight of Light brings a bit of that to the reader in a heartwarming way. This positive message combined with Eden's writing style definitely make this a Four Star Read!!!
