Where do you go if you are a witch in need?

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, West 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 alternative reality where witches cast spells and wreak havoc in modern day New York City

This is a book about living up to expectations (of self, family and others) and deals with a son of a detective that doesn’t cut the grade yet ends up in a programme that in underground and finds his feet.

In this novel, set in modern day America there are good and bad witches.  The good witches are protected by a government organisation which also polices the bad witches.

This is a fairly short read as I managed to read this within 24 hours.  The story is original and witty (in a laugh out loud sense); and an interesting new take on witches and their associated powers.  The action was constant and the story line engaging with some ‘oooh what’s going to happen next’ seat of your pants action.  There is also a smudging of romance too (which no doubt will be further explored in a sequel novel, should there be one).  The final conclusion was satisfying and rounded out the story but then again left it open for a sequel (this reader lives in hope).

The characters are strong, yet flawed with elements that readers can identify with.  They are also varied, interesting, well rounded, and intriguing with elements that readers can easily spot eg; expounding one’s image of a typical desk cop in some and an active investigator in others.  Over the course of the novel you grow to love them and want to see their story even after the novel ends.

If you love witches that are historically based, but are able to see a joke then this book is for you.  Although this is my first read by this author it will not be my last and I will definitely be on the look-out for The Witches Protections Program book 2.

In short this is a MUST read.

Full Disclosure: I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I rated this 5 stars on Netgalley, Amazon and Goodreads.
