Book Review: Daughter of Light & Dark (Prophecy of Nitesh) by Ch'kara SilverWolf
|5 stars, 1 review|
Ch'kara SilverWolfabout this book: Daughter of Light & Dark is a fantasy quest. Montayna is the heroine and on a journey to discover who she is and where she came from. Along the way she gathers to her a group of wizards, faeries, elves, shape shifters and all manner of magical beings. She discovers she is the subject of a Prophecy and so begins her journey both internal and external.
It took me about a year to write and correct, then I sent it to an editor for final corrections. I had three different titles and finally settled on this one because it felt so right. The cover is from one of my favorite artists Selina Fenech. I loved writing this book, my characters are like old friends I meet up with every time I pick up my pen to write. I hope that those who read my books fall in love with my characters as much as I have.
First sentence from a review I received: It was like a fantasy adventure story set in another dimension, with a hint of medieval times, crossed with a Dan Millman type of spiritual journey.

Great Fantasy ReadI found Daughter of Light & Dark to be an imaginative and readable story, full of readily identifiable sympathetic and colourful characters. I enjoy a traditional fantasy quest, and this book fits right in that genre. A young heroine - inexperienced and facing appalling danger while on her quest. She gathers wizards, elves, faeries and wolves to her and throws herself into her quest to rid her world of an evil that threatens it.
The story is well paced as evidenced by the fact that it never drags on, even though there isn't the usual overdone swordplay action often seen in fantasy novels.
It is a tribute to the storyteller that she keeps the readers attention without the use of the sometimes artifice of action, action, action. There are enough crisis situations to keep the story moving and exciting.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it, and I look forward to the next edition. I was reminded of early David Eddings 'The Belgariad'. [by Stephen Bos]
