A refreshing & hard edged Vampire series. It reminds me of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. Although it isn't quite as hard (so far) as BDB. Sadly, there are only 2 books in the series of 7 books in audio format (at the present time). Hopefully, that will change in the future. They are listed in Audible so hopefully they are being recorded now.
The Protector series is about VC Warriors; an elite group of vampires who protect innocents, whether human or those of their own race. There are half-breed vampires that have been kidnapped & scientifically engineered. Some of the half-breeds are traitors to their race while others have been taken in by the warriors. This series is fast paced, detailed & exciting. It has a different spin on the Vampire stories of the past.
Each book features one of the Vampire Council Warriors, his interaction with the warriors & a romance. There is enough steamy romance to satisfy, yet not porn because there is a plot rather than one sexual encounter after another. The latter is frustrating.
The narrator, Jeffrey Kafer, does an excellent job. He brings each of the characters to life. Well chosen narrator.

The vampires have come out of the coffin and a new drug hits the streets, called “Crimson Rush”. This new drug is the blood of vampires and it’s gives the user an unbelievable high. Because of the drug, vampires have been changing children into vampires in order to create a constant supply of the drug. This draws in social worker, Nicole Callahan and her coworkers to protect this vulnerable children. She is an extremely dedicated to protecting children, both human and vampire, and will stop at nothing to make sure there are not harmed. Because her job and her co workers have become increasingly dangerous, her boss brings in vampires from the vampire council to instruct them on proper defense against all attacks, let’s bring in warrior Damon Demasters, HELLO MISTER VAMPIRE!
Damon is an alpha vampire and a warrior, a dynamic duo of a personality. He realizes Nicole is his mate from the moment he sees her but denies that idea because of a tragedy in his past (I’m not telling, read the book). He loves the fact that Nicole puts everyone‘s safety above her own, which he considers a rarity both in human and vampires, but also hates that very same idea because she is always getting into trouble. Nicole is a no nonsense, let me do it, out to save the world type of heroine. She always puts others ahead of herself and loves her job. Nicole wants Damon but refuses to make herself available to him only to be hurt again.
The story is well developed and interesting. I would have like a little more background information about the vampires and the vampire council before they decided to make their presence known to the world. But I like the protectors and their sense of humor.
The narrator’s voice is very deep but not always exciting. He can sometimes be monotone when he is talking. But if you can get pass that, it's not that bad.
Yes buy the book; it’s a good vampire book, with some action, decent romance scenes and funny interaction between characters. In my book, that’s a good read.

Mother Teresa perfect lead female who is wonderful inside and out, meets vampire Adonis male with a perfect rippling muscled body. So ensues a completely uninspiring, unemotional and disappointing story. The end.
What is with all these awful books that have high ratings?! Why can’t people rate books accurately? I wasn’t expecting anything groundbreaking, but at least a guilty pleasure, with a bit of fun flirty sexy romance thrown in, and an easy read. No. Instead, I just got a flat, boring, waste of my life.
this is my 1st audio book i have read this book already the voice did not match what i had in my head. sorry
