I received an e-copy of The Protector from storycartel.com in exchange of an honest review.
The story started out a little slow, but once I got into it, I was hooked. I enjoyed the relationship between the hero Protector (Kae) and the Princess (Issa). The Priests add a great dimension to the story. A world ruled buy a King and controlled by Priests is extremely fascinating.
I love that there are no definitive good guys and bad guys in a majority of the characters. One side of the Veil is not necessarily good and the other side not necessarily bad. They are both complex.
I look forward to reading the second installment and reading more about the other side of the Veil.
Pros: wonderful and complex main and secondary characters, detailed scenery and vivid details
Cons: slow start
I would highly recommend this story.
