The drama starts right off from the start and keeps going till the end. You find out about Auriella at the same time she does. She faces many foes, she is scared but does what she thinks is right. Along the way she has come across some good friends too.
The characters are a range of bad Shadow wolves and witches and pixies, dwarfs and dragon. It is basically a fight of dark and light too save mankind or to take over mankind.
You can see Auriella get stronger with each trial she faces as she learns about who and what she is. She is I believe 14 when we first meet her from a small village. She is a orphan. She risks her life to save some kids from a fire. Someone called her a witch and the village turned on her because of it.
The setting is 1270 England
This is a clean fantasy, I think this is a good family friendly book. YA
This a easy fast read. I did not put the book down till I had finished and I want to read the rest of the series in the future.
I was given this ebook to read for the purpose of giving a honest review and joining The Watchers: Knight of Light book tour.
I had just started reading this story on Wattpad and was really enjoying it, when the author, Deirdra Eden asked if I would be interested in doing a proper review.
There was absolutely no hesitation on my part for I found The Watchers to be spellbindingly well written. From the brilliant dedication at the beginning of the book to the awesome powers of description, this story is amazing. Right from the very first page, you cannot put it down.
The Watchers is all about Auriella and the world of the Neviahan…strong and brave celestial beings; evoking every fairy tale you have ever read and coming up with something really special for all age groups to enjoy.
I especially enjoyed the chapter where Auriella has to be transformed from a grubby orphan into a lady and has to take a bath! Such wonderful description.
Deirdra writes like a Disney movie, so many magical characters and elements and you end the book with delight when you realise it is the first book in a series of six. So there will be plenty more to come, and I for one cannot wait!
This book is a great book for kids 4th grade (so 9/10) and up. I absolutely loved reading it!!!
Auriella had my sympathy from the first page, when she decided to run into a burning building to save children from burning to death and then was forced to run for her life after being branded a witch….all because she wasn’t burned in the fire.
Then began her adventure.
I will advise that there was a horrific scene where she was almost mauled to death by a wolf and then she was almost beaten to death. Other then those scenes, the book is great for grade school kids.
I couldn’t read this book fast enough. It had everything. Fairies….check. Pixies….check. Dwarves……check. Knights…..check. Evil demons….check. Dragons….check. A heroine who decided to be anything she wanted to be (orphan, lady, warrior)….check.
The only things (besides the abuse scene) that made me complain was that it was a cliffhanger. I hate cliffhangers with a passion. But I dealt because this book was good.
I do think that this would be a great book for girls to read. The heroine has to overcome a lot to realize that she can own her abilities. And when she realizes that….oh boy, does she!!! It has such a positive message that I think girls these days need to hear. That you don’t have to be perfect in other people’s eyes. That the only way you achieve perfection is in your eyes alone. And once you do, you can do anything!!!!
Would I read this book again? Absolutely. I would also read any other book in the series.
Would I reccomend this to family and friends? Yes I would!!!
Auriella is a teen orphan who is forced to flee from her less than satisfying but secure life when she is sought out by the evil Shadow Lords. She endures her self imposed indenture to Hazella, a witch who abuses here. She befriends a dwarf named Rupert and a pixie named Cassi. They play a big part in helping her change her future.
Auriella is an insecure character who fears change and the unknown. She is thrust into dangerous situations and barely escapes. She discovers she has a role in the world and seeks to become the person she wants and needs to be. The story is a coming of age tale with mystic overtones. This is a good first installment in what I hope will be a continuingly delightful YA series.
I recommend the book for teens and upper elementary readers.
