QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19

First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

TCBR AWARENESS TOUR: Witches Protection Program by Michael Okon - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


Today, we're joining The Children's Book Review for a stop along their current promotion featuring a NEW Paranormal Fiction release from author Michael Okon.  While the other post today featured ZOMBIES...this time around, we're dealing with the CRAFT-ier side of things with those pointy hat wearing, black cat attracting, broomstick riding WITCHES...but it's not exactly what you think.  You see, it's not just about those that practice or are gifted with powers, but rather those that PROTECT these women from the darkness that abounds.  I know, I know...what darkness...which screams for a bit of story history, but let's get through the introductions first.  Today's blog tour guest and book of choice is....

About the book...
Wes Rockville, a disgraced law-enforcement agent, gets 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 to use witchcraft for global domination, while protecting its heiress Morgan Pendragon from her aunt’s evil deeds. Reluctantly paired with veteran witch protector, Alastair Verne, Wes must learn to believe in witches…and believe in himself.

Filled with adventure and suspense, Michael Okon creates a rousing, tongue-in-cheek alternate reality where witches cast spells and wreak havoc in modern-day New York City.

Okay, so I've read this author's work before, so I was familiar with his writing style, and his penchant for writing about the paranormal...after all, it's not every author that gives us a twisted version of Jurassic Park where HIS version of the dinosaurs actually SHOW up.  Here, he crafts a curious tale and unique tale once again, filled with witches, magic, and those that would protect them.

Once upon a time, there were Willas and Davinas...two rival witch factions with different intentions for their crafts at heart.  The Willas were all about helping others, and causing no harm; the Davinas were more focused on self achievement, and power.  Think Salem Witch Trials...the more earthy, foul looking the witch....Willa!  The more put together, yet magically touched accuser/witness...Davina!  Of course, we all know where THAT fiasco led...but place it in modern day, and it doesn't seem to fly as well.  Good thing they changed with the times, or maybe not, because the bigger and badder the witch, the more powerful and ambitious they grew, and that made keeping them down THAT much harder.  It's easier to hide in plain sight than you might think, but then again...they don't plan on hiding for that much longer...at least not all of them.  Thing is...no matter the sect, there's always going to be those that just don't want to go with the flow...WITH GOOD REASON...and in this story, it just goes to show you that you can't keep a good witch down!

Overall, I enjoyed the story, the twists and turns, the unexpected allies and the uber-evil adversaries that would stop at nothing to get what they wanted.  Though I wasn't a fan of Mr. Rockville...he was too cynical for my taste...I was feeling his awakening to the magic that surrounded him.  At story's end, we were left with promising room for additional releases, allowing us that chance to get to know everyone (that's left!) and their diabolical plans (or not).  My only real critique would be a wish for more time to go in-depth or more deeply detailed in a few areas.
