The Witches Protection Program: Michael Okon
At the heart of this novel most would think is the battle between the Davina vs. the Willas. In other words, good vs evil in the world of witches. But when you look deeper inside and hear the rantings and ravings of some of the witches you realize that there is much more. One witch who is now the head of Pendragon and owns this cosmetic company has foiled the market where her company is now worth trillions. But Bernadette Pendragon is not satisfied, and her new face cream Pendragon Glow has a special DNA formula that will not only make women feel beautiful and young, but she will control their movements, shopping desires and take over the world with her glow cream. The power of suggestion will win out and she will encourage these customers to purchase huge amounts of other products using telepathy and the power of suggestion. Can she be stopped?
Meet Scarlett, Julie, Wu and Dominic plus Vincenza and Jasmine who are on Bernadette’s staff and each one vying for her attention, approval and oh yeah, her money in the end. Morgan Pendragon is her niece and the story opens with Bernadette threatening to disown her and take away all her fabulous perks if she does not sign over her rights to the company. But Morgan might not be a practicing witch but somehow she manages to hide the papers where no one will ever find them but will her aunt realize that?
Meet the star of the novel Wesley Rockville who starts out in a rocky fashion after botching up an assignment assigned to a 232 year old government association.
Each member of her staff wanting recognition and Bernadette claiming she is looking to fight for women and stop their plight with not getting equal wages, equal jobs and equal recognition but how does this equate with taking over the world. Her supplies and her products are ready for distribution and the ones that are in the states they might be able to stop them from being shipped and sold but what about those going overseas?
Meet my favorite character Fat Baby Junie who is totally amazing, manages to take charge when danger is in the air and you definitely don’t want to eat her green stew or anything else that she makes. But, in the pinch and if you are in danger watch out for her, she’s amazing.
As we get to know Wesley, we realize that he does not believe in witches and Morgan wants to steer clear of anything that deals with them especially the Willas thinking that her aunt is not evil. When the plot continues and the events turn odd we begin the understand the powers of these witches, how they can turn on each other, cast spells in every direction and do things that you would never imagine to themselves, others and anyone that dares to try and stop whatever it is they want to do and more.
The violence is different as the creatures come out and the characters must fight in unconventional ways which does keep reader interest. Snakes, worms and other things you would not normally have to combat, and people turned into ice, another hanging in the balance as author Michael Okon pulls out all the stops and we get the know the true power of the Willas. Added in we get to realize that Wesley is not as bad as his father thought when he banished him to the protection program and with the help of Alistair his new partner you won’t believe what they are capable of doing and the stunts they pull in order to stop Bernadette at her own game but can they?
Lies, truths and betrayals run the gambit as the author takes us inside the minds of the characters each one vying for power, recognition and not caring about the methods used. Scarlett is quire resourceful and really wants to take on Morgan in order to delete her from Bernadette’s trust and be her number one assistant hoping she will leave it all to her and not Morgan.
Morgan winds up working in odd ways with Wesley, but she does get captured, taken in, placed in dangerous situations and yet uses her intelligence and resourcefulness to hopefully overcome the obstacles in her way. But, will she finally use her talents as a witch? What about flying if need be?
The final scenes are quite unique and the graphics if they were created would be the basis for a great graphic comic or science fiction movie. Bernadette is delusional but so is the rest of her team as Morgan fights for her life, Wesley tries to protect her, Alistair and Bernadette face off and a secret is revealed that will change Morgan’s life. Who wins? Who will remain to fight another day and the author includes a short story or chapter at the end that leads readers to possibly believe that the author is not done with Wes, Alistair and we get to know Genevieve Fox as he states that some endings just might be beginnings but who is he bringing back? Will Wesley go back to the police force now that Harris has more faith in him? When things get tense his father wants to intercede and take over you won’t believe what happens. The Witches Protection Program is vital to the protection and safety of witches, their families and anyone associated with them in order to make sure that the good wishes are never without security.
What is the fate of everyone? What happens when Bernadette completely loses it? Will she win? Will they finally stop the shipment and what clever methods does Junie employ you won’t believe her creativity? Join the fun, the battles and what about the Glow cream any takers? Once again author Michael Okon creates a novel filled with humor, sarcasm, suspense and unanswered questions. Will Morgan remain in the picture? What about her relationship with Alistair? Learn more when you wisely stay on the good side of the Davinas and read this novel.
