5 Stars!! Silver Knight by Caron Rider

Caron Rider’s, “Silver Knight,” constitutes book one in the Silver Series.  Diana, the lead character is an unfortunate soul, either gifted or cursed to hop scotch through time with the dubious job of hunting and killing demons wherever they are found.  Inexorably drawn to important times in history, and generally being victimized by them, she is helped and sometimes hindered by the very entities that she hunts.

The story bounces back and forth through historical events, telling them in such a way that the reader is challenged to determine how much is truly fact and how much is fiction.  Caron’s descriptions are rich and thick with environmental backdrops that both add and give motivation to the story.  The back and forth method of storytelling has been one of my personal favorites through my life, so this book appealed to me both at the intellectual and the emotional levels.

Aided by her friends, Sam and Maggie, Diana’s life almost comes across as a parody when compared to theirs.  The result is a fresh approach to good vs. evil, light vs. dark, where the line drawn between them becomes faded and sometimes lost.  In the end you’re not sure who to root for, proving that truth and following the light is not as easy as it looks.  I genuinely had a good time reading this book and look forward to the second installment!  Great job Caron!!
