Riley Stone is a Necromancer. He has a fearsome reputation amongst the Demon population. Paige Matthews is a regular young woman who knows nothing about demons and who, like most of the population does not believe in the supernatural.
Calamata Island is a declared demon-free zone and is under the protection of the Archangel Benjamin. So, when Paige is attacked on Calamata Island by what she sees as a shadow with fiery eyes and is saved by Riley, she has no idea what is happening.
Riley is perplexed as well. Why would a Demon risk Benjamin’s wrath just to attack a normal human?
This is the first audiobook in a series and ends with no resolution at all which I found frustrating. Of course, it ended with a cliffhanger which will make listeners want to purchase the next audiobook in the series to find out what happens next.
The cliffhanger ending is a terrific marketing strategy, but is frustrating for audiobook listeners. However, in author, Ivy Sinclair’s defence, it is obvious that this book is only part of a series since the title is ” PROTECT HER: Part One”.
The characters of Riley Stone and Paige Matthews are only beginning to discover who they are in this book. I am sure that they will develop further over the course of the next ten episodes. One thing that comes across quite clearly is the fact that Riley Stone is gorgeous. I was reading the author’s blog and came across a picture of Riley and WOW, he is definitely eye candy:
The best thing about this audiobook was the decision to use two different narrators. I really liked having a female (Angel Clark) performing the part of Paige and a male (Robert Neil DeVoe) performing the part of Riley. It made the changes in perspective much more effective.
Angel Clark has a terrific voice for audiobook narration. She speaks clearly and uses exactly the right inflection for her part.
Robert Neil DeVoe was an inspired choice for the part of Riley Stone. He makes the character come alive and uses the perfect mix of emotion and cynicism to portray the jaded character of Riley Stone. I do not think I would have rated this audiobook as highly as I did if it weren’t for the amazing narration. The narrators both deserve a 5 star rating. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
PROTECT HER: Part One is only two hours and twenty-one minutes long which makes it an easy listening experience.
I enjoyed his audiobook and my only complaint is that it didn’t contain more of the story. It would be nice to have a single audiobook containing all episodes of this story.
I rate this audiobook as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
