Talk About Tuesday Book Review - The Watchers: Knight of Light

Talk About Tuesday is for reviews or just to let you know about a product I love. I mostly review books but occasionally something else will come available. Today, it's a book :-)

Watch the trailer: 

All the training in Heaven couldn't prepare me for the war on earth, nor for the love, loss, or loneliness humans feel. There are things worse than death, and every last one of them is hunting people like us. Even though we all feel human at times, we must remember, we are not them, we are their watchers.

In England, 1270 A.D., Auriella 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, demons, and monsters, Knight of Light is an enthralling tale that will capture the imaginations of readers young and old.

Auriella is special. How special we don't yet know. She is an orphan and must flee her home only to fall in with a witch, dwarves, pixies, fairies, knights, and even nobility. All as she is discovering who she really is and what special powers she possesses. She must endure many trials and hardships along the way, but she perseveres and becomes the Knight of Light.

What I liked:
The overall concept of the book was fun. The world in the book has enough fantasy but enough reality to make it relateable and easy to understand. The author uses common fantasy characters, such as pixies, dwarves, and fairies that really needed little explanation. The main character is easy to like, which is good :-)

What I didn't like:
The character development was very shallow. The book moved to fast to really tell a good deep story. There were some significant plot elements that got glossed over in a page or so where it could have really deepened the story and the credibility and personality of the characters. 

Overall, this book was a fun read, and I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series, but I am hoping that the characters are developed more as the series progresses.


Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free through Tomoson as part of their review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
