Witches Protection Program: Michael Phillip Cash review

Witches Protection Program

by Michael Phillip Cash

Rating: 3 Star

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Wes Rockville is a cop working for the NYPD who is unexpectedly transferred to a 232 year old division that no-one has heard of.

This division of the NYPD is the Witches Protection Program, tasked with protecting the good witches or 'Davina' of the world from the evil witches or 'Willa'.

Unbeknownst to the people of New York, this department keeps the good witches form the bad, and also protects the people from New York from their evil plots.

Shortly after transferring into the department, Wes along with Alastaire Verne begins an investigation into a Willa plot that threatens the whole world and has Bernadette Pendragon as the central villain of the plot. During this investigation Wes meets Morgan, a good witch and niece to Bernadette Pendragon, and with her help races against time to stop her evil Aunt Bernadette.

This was a well-written and fast-paced novel. Michael Phillip Cash has excellently blended modern elements (characters using Uber to get around the city) with the mystical (broomsticks, potions, and magic mirrors) in present day New York.
