|The Watchers, Knight of Light|
Personally I really like to read a good YA book. Please note I said GOOD YA book... there are lots of YA books that I have read in the past that I really wish I had left "on the shelf".
This book, The Watchers, book 1 Knight of Light by Deirdra Eden was not one of those. It definitely fell into my GOOD YA category.
I will admit I was a little concerned when I saw it was set in England in 1270 AD, mainly because I'm not a fan of most historical books. I had nothing to worry about. There were historical references, mannerisms as well as locations, but the story was about Auriella and the realization of just who she was. I loved the dwarf and pixie who helped her find her way as well as her interaction with other paranormal and human characters.
If you are looking for a good book for your middle school reader to read, I believe this is it. There is more than enough to grab their attention as well as spark their imagination to make them want to keep reading this book to the end.
Since this is book 1 in a series, it could be the start of a reading "marathon" for your middle school age reader.
Please do not assume by my comments above, that this is only for younger readers. As I said there is enough to spark the imagination of older readers as well. I can even see this being a catalyst for new writers!
But don't feel like this is only for writers. This is perfect for any aged reader as just a good book to read. No strings attached, but you just might find yourself drawn to Auriella the little orphan that was so much more than even she imagined.
Plant the seeds of reading and writing by getting your readers involved in The Watchers series.
