From the Author

I hope that you enjoy this book! While this is NOT a history book, I also hope that your interest is aroused in history. In a fun and entertaining way this novel contains several references to actual people and events to which I have put my own fictional twist. I would like to challenge you to find where I have twisted truth with fiction because you just might be surprised. Feel free to contact me through my website, blog, or facebook with your thoughts about this book or history. My hope is that you will never accept just one source as the only source of information because there are two sides to every coin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy! January 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The young and young at heart will enjoy this novel about Diana, who has lived through many reincarnations. Heroes of the past and demons blend with history, action, and adventure. Reading this was a pleasure and I enjoyed doing some Internet research just to make sure my memory of historical events hadn't completely faded. Some twists and quirks should make you curious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting YA novel January 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Do you believe in reincarnation? I don't, but I admit it can make for an interesting story. Silver Knight was a fun present day story that took you back to the past several times for a lot of nice historic tidbits as we get a glimpse of each warrior of the lights past lives.

Diana, has lived with nightmares of herself being killed over and over in horrible ways. She never understood why she had these dreams until she recognizes a priest on YouTube that she has seen in one of her dreams. Now she is convinced that she has lived out a life more than once and that killing demons is her job. Compelled to go to New York before heading to Rome, her and her two friends meet up with a few other warriors. Each of these warriors have had some very historical backgrounds.

Alex is a demon from Diana's past, we learn from her dreams that he kills Diana over and over in some horrible ways. He is absolutely ruthless, but he is also in love with Diana. Talk about some big romantic problems. When Diana meets Alex this time he swears he doesn't want to kill her anymore, but she just is not sure he can be trusted.

Even though Diana and Alex are the main characters the other warriors have a lot to do with what is happening, and the author gives them each a chapter so we can get to know them a little bit, there is Helen, David, Sol, and Jarret. Each I am sure we will learn more about as the series grows.

This first book I can tell is the builder for what is to come and because of this at times it feels like I didn't get to know Diana and Alex like I would have liked. Alex, doesn't come into the picture till later in the book, but from the little bit of a cliffhanger ending I know he will be a big piece of the next book.

I love the story line of Silver Knight and can not wait to read the next book in the series. The history is what made it an exceptional read for me! I love history and love the way Caron Rider weaved historical truth in with her story line and characters! Very creative!!! Although this middle aged adult enjoyed it very much, I think this book would be a fantastic read from Pre-teen to young adult! Maybe open young minds to the love of history a little more and the desire to look into the factual events to compare them with Ms. Rider's fact/fiction layering!

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart read for your YA April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Silver Knight is a fast-paced historical adventure that will take you on a journey through time in an intelligent, never boring way. Relatable and endearing, Diana is the teenage, demon-slaying heroine who rarely sees her thirtieth birthday, and Alexander is her love interest who is the instrument of her death each time. Tall, dark, and handsome, he runs the gamut from utterly merciless to devastatingly sweet, always with just enough sadness in his personality to elicit sympathy. Written for the YA market, the author cleverly sneaks in a history lesson with each jaunt through time, from ancient Greece, to Augustan Rome, to the Titanic. Rider sets the scene for each stop on her characters' trips through history with enough detail to make it believable while shrewdly witholding just enough information to make the reader want more. And you will want more!

When I first started reading this book I was like "okay this 17 year old girl just says I am just going to fly to another country to fight demons, sure". Once she got to New York things started making sense and I understood that in this life she was not very old but......Wow from there it really took off, I really got into the book. The flash backs from her other lives were great, going through history with her during each life! I cannot wait to read the next book and see what Alex's plans are now that he followed her home and is now working at her school! I also have lots of questions about the Bishop! Is he good or bad? Did he set the trap? Is he really looking for warriors to kill demons or did he try to get all the warriors in the one spot where it was grand central demon headquarters? Then Alex explained about the cologne! I am really excited to read the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreaming in Rome. April 26, 2012
Diana is just a high school senior who has just been told she will be the leader of the school's book club and she is excited about this position. Her nights are interrupted by dreams of a past life. She begins to wonder if she's reading too much. Then she sees a YouTube video of this bishop in the Vatican who she saved in another life and she knows she has to go to Rome to save him. This begins a journey that is crazy and fun. I can't say much more or I'll give away most of the book. What I can tell you is that if you enjoy adventure with a mix of paranormal then this book is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Silver Knight by Caron Rider April 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Diana is a 17 year old girl getting ready to go into her senior year of high school, president of their book club but she has scary dreams every night where she is killed by demons. One mysterious handsome black haired man pops up in most dreams along the way. Are these past lives or are they just nightmares.
A priest she helped in the past calls out for help from the Light Warriors. So she makes a trip to Rome where she feels she is pulled to, to help.

This is another book I had issues with not wanting to put it down so I could get some sleep. Caron Rider draws you in with events throughout history tying to different characters in the book I find completely fascinating. I have so many questions running through my head I would love to ask but will probably be in the 2 sequels to follow.

Diana is a strong brave young lady willing to run off to Rome to help the priest she had saved in the seventies. She faces her fears of meeting the stranger. She has the support of her BFF and her BFF's boyfriend.

Alexander has a rich history with Diana throughout the book you will be dying to find out more and more.

Other characters pop up in the book but to discuss too far would potentially give key information away.

I highly recommend reading Silver Knight. It is an intricately woven story that will draw you in and you will just want more. She even took characters I didn't think twice about until you learn more throughout the book.
