Reviewed by Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite Wizarding Protection Program, Book 1 by J.R. Taylor is a quirky take on wizards. Christine Plum is having a bad luck kind of day. She dropped her ice cream on the side walk, spilled some on her pants, and, oh yeah, nearly died when a wizard blew up the café. As the only witness, she’s taken to the hospital, thinking of the mysterious word “naufragium.” From there her luck continues to go downhill as a wizard from the Wizarding Protection Program shows up to protect her before an evil wizard can kill her. She has no choice but to trust this stranger as she’s forced to accept that magic is real. Wizarding Protection Program is a quick read with fast action. The story has a larger than life tone with Christine being recognized by the guy working at the counter. He asks for her autograph, but gives no explanation for why she’s famous enough to be asked. The air of mystery this gives adds to the quirkiness the wizard brings. Humor is presented through the casual way Percy (the wizard) goes about helping Christine; blasé and straight forward. Percy’s explanation about "literally keeping" his wand in his arm is delightful. He’s so used to this world of bizarre magic whereas Christine is thrown into the mix of chaos with an evil wizard trying to kill her. It’s a fast paced plot and reads like a scene out of a larger story. Wizarding Protection Program is a brisk start to an interesting world.
