*Ahem* Onwards to the review!

Wes laughed..."I don't believe in witches, sir."
"By the time you're done, oh, I promise you'll believe in witches."
Wes, a young, ambitious government agent is about to have the shock of a lifetime.

And it all started with...a failure...surprisingly enough.
"You disappointed me, your family, and the entire force."
Wes has always had big shoes to fill and with the most recent screw up, let's ju

Some authors just know how to tell a tale, give them an idea, tie a few knots in it, dip it in rainbow dye and they can run with it. Michael Phillip Cash is one such writer and Witches Protection Program is his latest idea gone wild. In a family full of over-achievers, Wes is not another cookie-cutter piece of perfection to hang on the tree. He is human, knowingly has a few flaws and has adapted, but of course, Dad, who happens to be his law enforcement boss, takes his displeasure to new levels ...more

What a fun read! I had no idea what I was getting into with this book. I was excited to meet a new author's writing style and in this case I was in for a treat. I love how Cash writes. It's simple, yet filled with imagery which brings scenes and characters alive. You don't have to guess with writing like this. You know that a character has a certain shaped chin and a voice like a saw, or whatever the case might be.
I instantly was sucked into the story and endeared to the main character, Wes. An

Witches Protection Program by Michael Phillip Cash is a quick Paranormal Urban Fantasy read that takes place in New York City. I would also classify it as a book geared more towards young adults than hard core adult paranormal fans. The world building is based around two types of witches, good Divinas and bad Willas and a secret government agency, the Witches Protection Program that protects the Divinas from the Willas. Shapeshifting, spells and wands abound, but most normal people don’t even kn ...more
❀Aimee❀ Just one more page...
This book is a light read - sort of like a cozy mystery with a paranormal feel. A special law enforcement is involved in keeping the good and bad witches apart and their fights under wraps. Memorable and snarky characters, witchy hissy fits, magical potions, and crazy weaponry abounds. This hits the spot when you want something quirky and humorous between heavy reads.

Thank you Netgalley for a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

I have to say that I loved loved loved this book. I was so taken with it that I missed sleeping to finish reading it. It drew me in very quickly. And it was very much like reading the Dresden Files books for me. ((That is a high compliment))

I have to say I have a crush on Wes. He is a human shoved into the world of witches, fairies and whatever else is out there in the paranormal world. He was flawed as well, so it just made him feel more hum

‘You disappointed me, your family, and the entire force. I knew you weren’t ready.’

Michael Okon has a rich imagination, a gift that comes from being grounded and secure with life as being lived. That he is able from that strong stance to create stories embellishes his evident gifts as a writer. In his debut novel BROOD X and in STILLWELL he was able to create a terrifying tales out of things seen or magnify things seen to become ghastly distortions of credible possibilities.

The synopsis for the book on Goodreads and Amazon really captures the essence of the story-line without giving anything away so I won't bore you with plot details.

So what's the book actually like? It's short, quick, easy, accessible and fun. It doesn't take itself too seriously and this means that you can enjoy the story for what it is - an action-packed adventure story. The writing style is clear and vivid so you can clearly envisage the action going on and who is positioned where in a scene (

Review: WITCHES PROTECTION PROGRAM by Michael Phillip Cash

A delightfully riveting alternate history/contemporary paranormal which posits witches as real, and as divided into two divergent categories--Davina and Willa.
Davina witches are the "good guys"--teachers, nurses, in healing professions--random act of kindness type. Willas are the Narcissists and sociopaths among witches, the "Me" individuals-and their magic is dark, ugly, selfish, and hateful. The Federal Witches Protection Program aids D

Meet Wes, a dyslexic police officer that doesn't live up to his siblings or family in the department. After he messes up an assignment, his father/boss sends him to an underground department called the Witches Protection Program. He then finds out that not only do witches exist, there are good witches and bad witches and his new job is to protect the good witches.

This was a fun and quick read. Once I started reading, I didn't want to put the book down! I enjoyed the characters so much, I hope th

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? It doesn't matter because witches aren't real, and magic doesn't exist. At least, that's what our hero of the day, Wes, always believed. Wes, an officer of the law(but not a good one), is a disgrace to his family. For his ineptitude, Wes is reassigned to a place that will challenge everythin

Recommends it for: those who love witches, magic, mystical and Harry Potter
This book’s tagline should be: Harry Potter meets Men in Black.

An action-packed, hilarious fast read that reads more like a movie than a book. I was addicted from start to finish and am crossing my fingers they make this into a blockbuster movie.

Wes comes from a police family and the expectations are higher for him than anyone else on the force. His father is the Police Commissioner and his siblings can do no wrong. Wes disobeys one order and his father is tempted to throw him off the force. Ins

Got an ARC from Net Galley.

I couldn't resist when I saw the title of this book. How could I pass it up? Nothing gets this girl's attention like the W word. I am glad I was able to get it because this is a really good book. This is a perfect summer read. It isn't too long. I'm not sure if my thinking is weird but I would imagine people would want to read shorter books during the summer and read longer ones when the weather cools down.

This is one of those fun reads that is the perfect distraction from our often too serious lives. We have witches, both good and bad, a secret organization that protects the good ones, a clueless detective, magic, action, humor, and a sprinkle of romance. Boredom should not be an issue with this story.

The cast of characters is entertaining, though not as developed as I'd have liked. I didn't feel I knew the main characters well enough. I loved Junie, who is a minor character with a larger-than-li

) An excellent way to start a great book. He seems even more realistic when we learn that he is also dyslexic, but doesn't let it stop him from achieving his dream.

Although this is a story about witches, it wasn't at all what I expected. Growing up in New York myself it was really cool to be able to imagine witches wreaking havoc across the city. Who would have thought they would have a hand in so much! Its also pretty cool how Mr Cash kept the story firmly planted in the present (despite the st

Poor Wes. He’s failed again and now he’s been given one last chance to prove himself qualified to be in law enforcement. He’s sure it’s a prank when he’s assigned to the Witches Protection Program.

It’s no hoax. But it takes some convincing for Wes to believe in witches. He gets it in spades.

Loved this book from the very first page to the very last. And I certainly hope this was just one of a series with the cast of characters introduced in this book - because it definitely has all the elements of an entire series to it. Witches alive and living among us mere humans - every day in every way? Yep, it's true - and there's a special branch of police to protect the good witches from the bad. At least, that's what we are told - and shown - in the book. Lots of fun twists and turns, lots ...more
