Series: Book 3: Flawed
Characters: Ethan, Kelsey, Jade, & Logan+
Setting: Colorado, USA
Mature Themes: Violence & stalking
Recommendation: With a dark progression from book to book that I haven’t seen since ‘Harry Potter’ Protector is an enjoyable low fantasy novel about real world characters with real world issues, mostly. As book three in the series, you’ll need to start with book one or risk being confused, however, book three is worth it.
Book three in the Flawed series is an ensemble cast this time around with a mix of both old and new faces. Logan is still as brooding and closed off as ever, battling with his own ability and how to control what Jade so longs for him to share with her. After her abduction by Ethan, Jade is distraught and near panic over finding Kelsey. Jade’s focus and Logan’s own problems pull the two in different directions and they struggle against each other in a refreshing way that pulls them from a cookie cutter relationship mold. Ethan is as crazy and deranged as ever, you’ll have to read the book to learn more. Kelsey is the newest member of the cast and her charm and passion jumps from the pages. She’s an art therapist and her desire to help and heal the children she sees is a wonderful light shining from the pages amidst the darkness that Ethan casts. She’s worth reading the entire book.
As the third instalment (plus some short stories) in the Flawed series, Protector is the logical, dark, next step. Ethan’s plots have escalated and with Kelsey finally in his sights and as a result the interactions between all of the characters is more tense, more violent, and more twisted. A ‘light’ in the story was one of Kelsey’s students, Hugh, a mute who was fantastically written, vibrant, and someone I am hoping Becca Campbell will eventually write a book about.
