Format: Paperback
Having clapped eyes on the exquisitely beautiful mauve and amethyst cover, I was magnetically drawn to Ch'Kara Silverwølf's first fantasy novel in the style of classic high/epic fantasy for Young Adults.

Books transport you to other realms of discovery, places of wonder and enchantment which bring dreams to life so allowing the imagination to soar...yet, despite the promising premise of this novel I alas found it somewhat lacking in content. Containing references to Medieval folk lore, magik (not `magic'), mythology and fantasy expectations were high as I plunged into a complex storyline that was packed full of so many magical creatures and supernatural elements it was unnecessarily overpowering - - to the extent of excess. There are Wizards, Healers, Elves, Faries, Wolves, Dragons and Dark Lords etcetera. The sentences were also very short and choppy hence the narrative did not flow very well, which in addition to the simplistic language (that's more for the Younger reader/ middle-grade) all enhanced the amateurish feel of the book.

Main character Montayna is gifted with a concoction of magical abilities and psychic powers, who embarks on the imitative `quest' as someone special who will endeavour to protect her people and planet. Unfortunately as I continued to read I found the entire storyline lacking in originality as many established elements within fantasy literature kept cropping up. What vexed me greatly was how the author went beyond drawing inspiration from other notable works within this genre, with marked comparisons in her work; disturbingly derived not from innate independent thought and so lacking in vision.

For example {does this evoke something recognizable?}...

5.0 out of 5 stars Magikal attraction! 7 July 2015
By Erica Miles, author of Dazzled by Darkness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In the spirit of full disclosure, I want my fellow readers to know that it went against my former strict training as a Christian to read an alluring book about magik, the earth goddess, and various nature spirits. But aside from that theological issue, I very much enjoyed this book, and was impressed with the quality of the writing, the sensitivity of the female protagonist, Montanya, and the way that patience was praised as a virtue.The lovely country settings, alive with salamanders, frogs, and colorful birds, offered a panoply of rare and exotic characters. Although the cast of minor characters was too large for me to remember all their fanciful names, I still enjoyed meeting them through a joyous celebration of life and initiation ceremony.The book is basically the story of a quest, related in a classic heroic style; the olden vocabulary and elvish language are convincing. The pace of the journey exhibits the mystery of patience. One must suspend ones disbelief to follow Montanya’s journey from childhood slave girl to powerful magik wielder, to conflicted human being. In the almost cinematic scenes, flora and fauna are abundant, as are enticing aromas of food and fleeting glimpses of elves and nymphs, and above all, the dragon, the symbol of Montanya’s secret identity.As you can see, I found this fable-like book an enchanting read and was able to set aside my Bible for a while to enjoy it. Actually, Daughter of Light & Dark does indeed deal with the conflicts inherent in being human: half angel, half demon, attracted to both good and evil, unable to stop from sinning and yet aspiring to heavenly light, we are all, as readers, made in a similar image to Montanya.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great new fantasy quest 14 April 2013
By Morgaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of the fantasy quest - the coming together of different characters with their own personalities and skills to work together to achieve something that none may achieve alone. In this case the main character is Montayna - a freed slave girl who discovers her magikal abilities as she gathers together those people both human and fae who will aid her on her quest.

She must discover why she is the Chosen One from the prophecy and what she must do to eventually fight the darkness that is threatening the land. She is guided by the ancient wizard Gilcune, who interprets the Prophecy as they travel. As well as the mysterious young girl Kaya who at times seems wise beyond her years.

As the story progresses, some of her companions split off on their own journeys from time to time, which is another wonderful part of the fantasy quest.

The story has been told so well through the characters that it kept me enthralled throughout.
Although there were no battles and fighting as such, Montayna had to tap into her dark side in order to survive.

I look forward to book two with anticipation of what further adventures are to come for Montayna and her companions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy adventure tale with a spiritual side! 11 July 2012
By Studio Lu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book! It was like a fantasy adventure story set in another dimension, with a hint of mediaeval times, crossed with a Dan Millman type of spiritual journey. The main character, Montayna, has to grow up & into her magikal side quickly, as she discovers revelations about her true purpose in life. Though she must get through her journey alone, the characters show that working together as a group, & supporting her in any ways that they can, is clearly much more effective than going solo & trying to do it entirely on her own. This is such a good message to put out there in today's world of communicating & learning via computer more & more, instead of working together as a group. There are mystical animals and beings in the story, as well as people who can communicate with animals in ways that really aren't so far-fetched, in these times of "horse-whisperers" & the like being acceptable. The ending was a cliff-hanger & I hope the next book will be published soon, so I can follow on with Montayna's tale.
Thanks, Ch'Kara SilverWolf!! It was a fantastic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daughter of Light and Dark by Ch'kara Silverwolf - kindle edition 30 Nov. 2012
By Lalo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very interesting book. Great world building in this story. It felt like a Tolkien type world. The creatures were interesting. I like the care of the environment and respect for other life forms that was shown in this book.

Spoiler alert:
The book is sweetly romantic. There is an absence of blood and gore and graphic sex that gave me a good feeling. While the impending darkness hangs in the background of your mind, the characters are great to each other. They work together, we don't see jealousy or meanness in the primary group of creatures that help the chosen one on her quest.

The world and the characters here were very complex. I was worried the chosen would have to make this trek on her own but she has plenty of help, perhaps because she is so gracious and loyal to her friends.

I recommend this story to anyone who is looking for a wonderful fantasy with characters on a quest. The main character must constantly choose between good or evil. That is not as easy a choice as you would think it would be.

It's a very involved and wonderful world and it is filled with well thought out and complex characters. Very good book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daughter of Light & Dark - My review 2 Nov. 2013
By W. Stuart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the Daughter of Light & Dark (Prophecy of Nitesh) with much anticipation. I wasn't disappointed.

Synopsis: Humble beginnings, unexpected magik, and a fight against a dark threat. Such is the fate of Montanya, a child who never knew her parents. Follow her journey as she learns about her magical heritage and joins the fight against the Dark Lord.

What I liked: The plot was well developed. The story follows Montanya from her very humble beginnings as a slave to her evolution to a creature of magik. Along the way, she meets a variety of friends that offer their help as she progresses through her magikal growth. The development of Montanya's characters and that of her friends was top notch.

What I didn't like: The conflicts were very low key and the action was soft. I struggled with the ease at which the characters seemed to fall in love with no hint or risk of hurt or betrayal. While I admired the characters loyalty to Montanya, it was a little odd that they simply dropped everything to join in the quest. Lastly, the lavish descriptions of the characters' outfits distracted me from the story.

Overall impression: The Daughter of Light & Dark (Prophecy of Nitesh) Volume One was a very pleasant and easy read. With good character development and a good plot, the book drew me in and kept me interested. Despite the lack of action scenes usually found in fantasy novels, the storyline was enough to hold my attention. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a softer, more romantic take on fantasy quest novels.

My rating: 4 Stars (out of 5)!
