Sum It Up! Protector is my favorite type of love story.


To love and protect…across worlds.

Eighteen-year-old Faith Stryker is prepared to leap out into the unknown world beyond her home shores of New Zealand to experience life. Only she never expected to encounter Magio, a planet with two warring countries, where its people reach adulthood at eighteen by coming into their strength and prophetic abilities. Only after Faith discovers she’s a Halfling--thanks to her warrior father she’s never met--does her own skill of forethought develop.

Peacio’s Prince Davio Loveria is sent to the young Faith Stryker by his grandfather, but not all goes as planned. Davio discovers Faith isn’t just a Halfling, she’s also his soul-bound mate--an intense relationship he cannot, nor will not, give up.

With two wars now waging…one of land and the other of the heart…can the young lovers find their place in the world? (Goodreads)

Protector by Joanne Wadsworth is a fabulous and fun read. I couldn’t stop reading until the end. Faith is a likable character and as the story was laid out, the difficult choices she had to make made my heart ache. Dario is a handsome, drool-worthy prince (pain in the arse) who is lovable (eventually). I was really hoping for a HEA with these two, and Wadsworth does not disappoint!

Protector is my favorite type of love story. Two people who are meant to be together and the hard journey they face along their way. Many surprises and stakes are thrown into this pot of already boiling water, keeping you glued to each turn of the page. I can’t wait to read the next story in the Magio-Earth series.


  1. Thank you so much for the lovely review. Book 2 in the series releases Nov 4th, and it's the story of Silas (Davio's cousin) and Hope. I can't wait for them to tell their story. It's wicked fun.

  2. I can't wait to read their story, but we will get to see more of Davio and Faith, right?

    1. Absolutely. Faith and Davio are right there in the mix of it. :D
