The Protected

  • Jun 14, 2010
Skye Taylor lives a pretty quiet life. Since the death of her husband, Skye has pretty much kept to herself. Actually apart from being legally blind and still driving, her life seems pretty dull. That is, until a series of events shakes Skye's world to its very core.

The first hints of something strange begin in the hospital after an accident. A mysterious man visits Skye and she sees something odd, a blue mist. At first, Skye assumes this is just a weird morphine induced delusion. However, afterwards Skye realizes that she has the ability to heal wounds.

Then, things get complicated, in more ways than one. Skye starts a new job as a massage therapist. Everyone is wonderful except the very attractive Khalen who is aloof and sometimes downright judgmental. What Skye doesn't know is that Khalen knows far more about her, about the blue mist, and about her future than he's letting on. In fact, Skye is about to be thrown into the middle of a war between the Spirians and the Shadows. Ultimately, how Skye reacts will determine if good triumphs over evil or not.

The Protected took me by surprise. The book started off innocently enough with a quirky but pretty average main character with subtle hints of something more. That drew me in. Then, the layers started to be peeled back and the story unfolded. Before I knew it, I was hooked.

About this book


When the law of duality becomes imbalanced, a shift occurs to restore order

Prophecies predict the equinox of change will occur toward the end of 2012%u2014but, this change is already in motion. When people start to question reality, they develop the power to pierce the barrier of illusion and create wondrous things%u2014or horrible nightmares.

Skye Taylor is not convinced that the gifts she has developed are special in any way until she discovers her ability to heal. Her lifelong gift to see people beyond the physical was often associated with auras, but to Skye it is so much more. The energy that surrounds people tells a story and removes the shields that guard emotion and truth.

After losing everything she ever cared about, she moves to Washington in hopes of starting over. What she doesn%u2019t anticipate is the sequence of events that bring her face to face with Khalen Dunning; an extraordinary man with a very dark past.

In Khalen%u2019s world, anything is possible. The line between illusion and reality is blurred and the human spirit is stronger than physical bounds. Unfortunately, the empowered are not spared the law of duality. Power can be used to serve good as well as evil.

Khalen knows that Skye is special. Getting involved with her, though, draws him to the edge of his darkest memories, a place he vowed to never return.

The paradigm of duality defines the law of spiritual balance but willingly surrenders to the power of ...
