    A Soaring Tale of Love and Adventure

    For a romantic fantasy adventure, this is the story to read. It has love, magic, monsters, flying horses, Singers, and a whole lot more! ***** Calli Torcher is forced into retirement from barrel racing by injury. Her cold, distant father cares nothing for her, sells her horse, and puts a reverse mortgage on the ranch so she won't inherit it. She's deeply hurt,emotionally and physically, with nowhere to go. All she ever wanted was for someone to love her. ***** She is swept away by Singing to a place and time she doesn't know. The Llandranans need a trainer for their magnificent volarans--flying horses. Calli speaks equine-speak so is the ideal candidate. Journey with her through a new world where some things are better and some are decidedly worse, but where she can finally achieve her heart's desire--only if she can avoid the Snap. ***** I thoroughly enjoyed Protector of the Flight. It's almost like a western romance (of which there are entirely too few these days), with a fantastical flair. The characters are strong and plausible. The creatures and beasts are fascinating, and in fact the whole Llandaran world is crafted so skillfully, you'll believe you're there. ***** Highly recommended!

    LOVED IT!

    The story delves deeply into the thoughts and emotions of the two main characters - Calli and Merrec. Everything from past horrors, childhood trauma, and the strain of marrying a stranger is explored. One can't help but feel Calli's anguish as she struggles to be her own person while also learning to adjust to Lladrana society and her new husband plus deal with her new role as protector of the flying horses. Really loved the growing camaraderie of the three Earthwomen. Owens has done a masterful job of creating three distinct personalities who don't always get along yet will risk their lives to keep each other safe. Fans of the series will appreciate how more of Lladrana culture and society is revealed, particularly the realism of war profiteering, traitors, cowards, and the apathy of some of the populace who are content to let the Marshalls and Chevaliers fight and die to protect them from the invading monsters. Throw in the delicious twist that has the reader wondering if the all-good Singer is actually a creepy, manipulating autocrat, and you have a good solid read. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    A book that ties many loose ends together!

    I thought that Protector of the Flight was an awesome book!! It brought many of my questions concerning The Dark and Lladrana's past (before Alexa was summoned) to a conclusion that left me only thirsting for more of Owens' intricately detailed universe! If anything, this will prove to be a vital part of the already developing series!

    fun fantasy romance

    After her accident, Calli is no longer able to compete in rodeo events and is heartbroken to learn that her father sold her horse. He also makes it clear she will not inherit the ranch upon his death. She goes into the nearby mountains to regain her equilibrium and finds herself traveling through the dimensional portal to the realm of Lladrana on the planet Amee. She was summoned by the powerful magic wielding marshals as the volaran Exotique for the Chevaliers, knights who fight the monsters that the Dark lets into Lladrana. --- The volarans who are flying horses that are used in fighting the monsters are overjoyed that Calli is there. They and the Chevaliers make it clear that they want her which mends the heart her father broke. She chooses Marrec, a chevalier with no land and only one volaran as her mate, which raises his standing in the Chevaliers hierarchy considerably. However, he wants nothing more than to settle down with her and their two adopted children. Calli wants that too but she cannot settle down until she fulfills her purpose in Lladrana, whatever it may be. --- This is the third fantasy romance set in Lladrana and it is exciting and action-packed as the first two books in the series (see GUARDIAN OF HONOR). The heroine adapts easily to her new life and she and her mate get from the beginning. However, he has different goals than her that and that puts a wedge in their relationship and it is only when they are both stranded back on earth do they heal each others wounds. Great characterizations and a beautiful love story make PROTECTOR OF THE FLIGHT very special. --- Harriet Klausner
