The Protected is a fantasy story of good versus evil. The story centered around Skye Taylor a blind massage therapist. Since her husband’s death she and her service dog have lived a quiet life. She is legally blind but still drove a car. She came to in a hospital after an accident. Her leg was severely injured. A strange man with a blue mist around him visited her. She wasn’t sure if she was dead, dreaming or having delusions. After his visit she has the gift of healing and removing pain. Her gift leads to a struggle between the Spirian race, a cross between human and spiritual beings (they have super natural powers) and the Shadows (who have no powers.) The clan tried to teach Skye how to control her powers in order to protect her from the Shadows. Their future lies the children she will produce. The fate of the human race rests upon her choices.
I quickly became involved in the life of Skye. The secondary characters add dimension to the story. The plot is interesting and entertaining. This is a fast read. The Protected is a mixture of romance, mystery and humor. This is book one of the Spirian Series. I look forward to the next installment.
