"wonderful paranormal tale"
In Las Vegas stage magician Alana Devlin performs two
shows a night six nights a week. However, what makes
Alana different from her performing peers is that she
performs her sleight of the hand using real glamour
illusions that fool human senses. Alana is the PROTECTOR
keeping malevolent otherworldly creatures at bay.
In the garage after a performance, Alana bends down to
pick up a gold Irish claddagh charm that someone dropped.
That motion saves her life as someone tries to kill her.
Using an illusion she manages to escape, but not without
suffering a concussion. Police Detective Leo Grady
informs Alana that a serial killer has murdered five
people associated with the paranormal with her being the
token survivor. He places her in protective custody, but
watches Alana perform weird actions that shake his logic
system to the core, but not as much as his love for the
magician does to his heart.
Fans of police procedural romantic fantasies will receive
plenty of pleasure from the delightfully charming THE
PROTECTOR. The story line is loaded with action as the
cop and the performer work together to stop a killer while
falling in love. Alana is a great protagonist and her
Helper Carrick Murphy is a solid secondary player who
needs his own story told. Leo may be reeling with what he
sees and hears, but when it comes to his beloved he
refuses to accept anything except her safety. Jenifer A.
Ruth effortlessly combines the three genres into a
wonderful paranormal tale.
