WITCHES PROTECTION PROGRAM
by Michael Phillip Cash
“Wes Rockville, a disgraced law enforcement agent, is given one last chance to prove himself and save his career when he’s reassigned to a 232 year old secret government organization. The Witches Protection Program. His first assignment: uncover a billion-dollar Cosmetics company’s diabolical plan of using witchcraft for global domination, while protecting its heiress Morgan Pendragon from her aunt’s evil deeds. Reluctantly paired with veteran witch protector, Alastair Verne, Wes must learn to believe in both witches and himself. Filled with adventure, suspense and a rousing good time, Michael Phillip Cash creates a tongue-in-cheek alternate reality where witches cast spells and wreak havoc in modern-day New York City“
Notes I Made While Reading
- Cover is amazing. I love love love it.
- “Is that Jennifer An-“.
- Dyslexic? Oooh. PJO!! 😉
Wes Rockville is a disgraced police officer who has trouble living up to the family name. After he screws up an important assignment, his father; who’s also the head of the department, transfers him to a division he’s never even heard of. A 232 year old secret government organization that protects witches!
Wes has trouble coming to terms with a reality he would have never dreamed of. He’s paired with Alastair Verne, a veteran witch protector who seems laid back but actually has much more to his character.
Morgan Pendragon is a 21-year old witch who doesn’t really like the way her Aunt runs things and is mostly on the run from her.
The heiress does her own thing and tries to be as normal as possible, refusing to use her witchy powers for everything. But when faced with no choice, she has to resort to magic.
Her character development is a rather steep slope but we do notice some important changes that make her refined.
Wes is the main protagonist whose dilemma with understanding that witches really do exist and are trying to take over the world is kind of hilarious.
“Michael Phillip Cash creates a tongue-in-cheek alternative reality..”, is absolutely correct.
The author has a way of finding the humorous side of every situation and the best part is, it never seems forced The wit and sarcasm are heavily dripping from the words on the page and I can’t help but love every word.
For a book that is so laid-back and chill, you wouldn’t expect much of a suspenseful climax. But Witches Protection Program hit me with a climax that I didn’t see coming, at all! Finally!
Junie is an ugly witch who works in one of the warehouses for the ‘billion-dollar Cosmetics company’. She helps out Alastair Verne in their latest assignment and is promised protection in return. She is the essential secondary character that’ll keep you smiling throughout.
There really isn’t much I didn’t like about the book apart from a bit of an insta-love thing going on and the writing speed was a bit too fast at times.
This book is a great, quick read that’ll end up surprising you. Everything seems simple enough, but there’s a really good story here. You’ll fall in love with the characters while you’re laughing at their smooth dialogue. The author is a master of words and definitely knows what he’s doing. Apart from the fast-paced parts, I definitely recommend this book (Especially if you’re in a book slump).
This book seemed like a start to a series so I’m really hoping that the author writes a sequel. I would definitely read more about Wes and his new missions with the Witches Protection Program. I will definitely try to more books by Michael Phillip Cash!
