Review: Witches Protection Program by Michael Phillip Cash

Product Description: 
Wes Rockville, a disgraced law enforcement agent, is given 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 of using 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 both witches and himself. Filled with adventure, suspense and a rousing good time, Michael Phillip Cash creates a tongue-in-cheek alternate reality where witches cast spells and wreak havoc in modern day New York City.

My Thoughts: 
Overall for a children's book this was a fun adventure. After disgracing his law enforcement family, Wes Rockville is assigned to a secret organization that is tasked with keeping the peace between two dueling factions of witches. Of course things go wrong but Wes pulls it out in the end and makes his father proud. 

Although the book had a slow start, the story picked up pace about halfway in and I finished it within a couple of days. If this wasn't a children's book it would rate it fewer stars but I can see tweens loving the book and hope it does well as a series. 

My Recommendation:
This would be perfect for younger teens and older children that love supernatural fantasy reads.
