In the beginning we were creatures of the night, killing humans and drinking their blood to sustain us. But in the passage of the centuries we have evolved and now walk amongst you both in daylight or night as peaceful, moral beings satisfied to hunt and drink the blood of animals. We live with the support of our Watchers; humans who have been chosen and in return have made sacred vows to protect our species from those that would do us harm. A task that is a privilege for our Watchers is to be able to donate their blood to us. This donated blood is gathered medically and mixed with an elixir devised by the ancients that magically multiplies the volume and allows it to remain fresh indefinitely. We call this elixir Crimson and use it as a supplement to or a replacement for our normal diet
My name is Katrina and I have been chosen as the leader of the Five. The “Five” or “The Protectors” have been foretold in human prophecies throughout time. I, along with my twin sister Katherine (Kate), and my friends Rosalinda (Rosa), Eleanor (El) and Arletta (Letta), have completed the protection ceremony and an oath to protect the races, all the races.
But in order to continue to succeed the Five must become the many. Join us.
As soon as I got reading The Protectors I was thrilled to see how the book started off with Quinn and Katrina. I was always Team Quinn. However, Katrina is deeply in love with Damien. Although he is a decent guy and all, I stand by my preference of Quinn. It is nice though, to see how Damien’s and Katrina’s love develops and deepens as the story continues.
While reading the book I realised that there was many characters and also new characters are also being introduced. It was hard to keeping up but I really liked the unique names each character had. It was nice seeing how their personalities grew.
In The Protectors there’s more action, thrill and suspense than the previous book, Katrina: The Beginning. I was really focused and this kept me wanting to read more as I just had to know how the book was going to end off. I don’t want to give any spoilers but there is a lot going on in this book. Long journeys only result in yearning, battles have to be fought and Vampires need to carry on living.
A definite page turner.
I can't wait to read the book that follows.
